The List, ping
These days it seems that the term “Healthcare Reform” is a code word for socialized health care.
I don’t believe anything arnold says. He probably says something different when he says it in austrian.
That RINO bastard.
Arnie has never been a Republican
Tort Reform is what’s needed for affordable health care.
Preferably deported back to Austria
Right on. He isn’t a Republican.
Agreed. Is it possible to do that?
His name is "Austrian" for back stabber.
B.S. For the poor, there's Medicaid; for the retired, there's Medicare; for those working, there's employer-provided insurance. Ain't no one left. So where are these "millions?" I have yet to meet just one.
I’m one of the millions who need help...Help fighting off a federal government that insists on taking over the private sector.
People who don’t want insurance, or who do not have enough initiative to go search for available solutions. There are countless options out there.
Like Immigration reform is code word for Amnesty
None of these political scumbags will ever be denied or delayed in their health care. They won’t be found in the same lines as the rest of us. Neither will their families. They will foist socialist health care only on the rest of us.
for the poor $85 grand a year family of four.. cigaretes tax pays for health care up to 30 years of age.. military has health care for all and families, military retires have health care, veterans have health care, 100% disabled vets have family health care.. people of SSI have great health care, Social security disability pays for health care, plus regular social security at age 65, all the cities, state, county employees working plus retired, union companies, provide health care, plus their retired and family, many counties have health care for the poor.Plus all governent employes and families have health care, I doubt I have named the lot of options for health care,.. but I do doubt there are that many uninsured....
Screw you ahnold kennedy.
Sweden’s Government Health Care (Walter Williams)
Cost of illegals to California $10.5 billion
Analysis shows burden of native-born residents $1,183 per household
Not in all jurisdictions. Some states only allow insurance companies to offer low deductable, high cost insurance. The young and the healthy are forced to buy if they want insurance..
Gee...how long do ya think the line they’ll be waiting in to see their doctor will be...
Yes, it is. We already have gone about 80% of the way there. SCHIP expansion in January was a 'downpayment' and Obama added another 'downpayment' in the budget.
The 4 horsemen of the liberal apocalypse:
1. HUge increases in Federal spending and massive deficits 2. Higher taxes 3. socialized heathcare 4. Regulation and control of CO2 via 'cap-and-trade'
“but I do doubt there are that many uninsured....”
Sure there are - you forget the 30 million illegal aliens who have absolutely NOTHING to fall back on, except taxpayer funded local health care clinics, using medicaid via anchor babies, states like Cali that are lax about letting illegal aliens into their programs, laws that require care given in emergency rooms, and private sector charity.
Let get real ... the hundred and hundred of billions, nay trillions, spend by all levels of Government to pay for healthcare is NOT ENOUGH .... it will NEVER BE ENOUGH ... so we might as well turn the entire country into a socialized hellhole now because its a greater crime to have a single American without free taxpayer subsidized healthcare than to take away the freedom for 300 million.
Some states only allow insurance companies to offer low deductable, high cost insurance. “
The Democrat plot to impose socialized healthcare requires the destruction of sane alternatives, and a key way to do that is to regulate the health insurance business to a point where it is IMPOSSIBLE to have lowcost health insurance.
The best GOP idea to respond to this was the idea to allow portable health insurance so that you could buy the health insurance from any state. That way, the Democrats/liberals cant imprison people into just the health insurance for that state.
“Tort Reform is whats needed for affordable health care.”
And deregulation of health insurance so young people can buy cheap high deductible insurance.
And a level playig field for people who buy outside of employer pool insurance.
How about we socialize Hollywood first. It would reduce vastly overpaid salaries and reduce ticket prices so more people could afford movies. Sure, to make their money the studios would have to reduce technology used (oooo, movies on Super-8 film) and try to cram more people in shoddy theaters, but at least it would be cheap.
He is just the first, of many who will be crowding in for “a place at the table” (actually, a trough) on health care reform.
I kid you not, this is coming at the entire country like a freight train. DC is determined to pass it, very soon.
Sadly, the big insurers stand to make out best with this, as conceived now. Everyone else will lose, big time.
