Posted on 11/14/2013 4:51:33 PM PST by mdittmar
Washington, D.C. Nevada Senator Harry Reid issued the following statement regarding President Obamas fix to the Affordable Care Act:
Today we saw a clear contrast: Democrats are working to fix and improve the Affordable Care Act, while Republicans still want to go back to the days when insurance companies could deny people coverage for pre-existing conditions, treat being a woman as a pre-existing condition, and watch health care costs drive families into bankruptcy. The fix proposed by President Obama today is an important step towards addressing a problem that has arisen and if we need to do more, we will.
Republicans should stop listening to the extremist voices in their party who only want to repeal the benefits of the Affordable Care Act. Whenever Republicans decide to stop rooting for failure, roll up their sleeves and get to work, we stand ready and willing to work with them and find common ground.
It is the poor judgement and bad decisions of Democrats that wrote the bill, Harry...
Harry Reid is another co-conspirator like Nancy Pelosi that will sing this tune right up to the hangman’s noose.
As I recall, republicans were shut out of most of the planning on this bill.
Harry is a LIAR just like the rest of the bastards hope he chokes on his lies.
Harry Reid, master of propaganda!
“treat being a woman as a pre-existing condition”
We’ll, some of them are...Nancy Pelosi is a fine example.
treat being a woman as a pre-existing condition
Another cowardly lie by Harry Roid.
a) Insurance companies run their business using statistics
b) Fair insurance rates make the high-users of medical care pay more. It’s all statistics.
It’s well-documented that women used medical services FAR MORE than men and thus it is predictable that a woman is more likely to cost “the pool” of insured people more money.
Since Harry Roid doesn’t understand the private sector, he doesn’t get this.
What a petulant naive child he is.
i hope he chokes on a rope.
We never boarded the Titanic so why should we (how would we?) plug the gaping gash in it after it hit the ice berg we repeatedly warned you about?
No-one has read it all yet - so maybe there is some coverage in dealing with pedophilia included in there he may need also. ;)
i know it’s hyperbole but seriously what insurance plan treats women as if they havea pre-existing condition if they don’t reallyhave one?
if it’s different rates for different procedure coverages between men and women, then harry, you better start bitching about car insurance and life insurance screwing guys foir being guys.
That will work too.
The metaphysical question is, are “pre-existing” conditions “pre-owned” “pro-actively”?
Harry Reid is such a liar. Like telling everyone he is a boxer (when he was in high school he forgot to say!).
Does anyone really read his CRAP?
But when the law was being debated, they refused to include Republicans nor their ideas into the discussion. They were excluded completely. But now they want to have the republicans work with them fixing a democrat disaster.
“We know you didn’t want or vote for this rape, but now that we won and it’s happening to you, the least you could do is join in and try to make it work.”
Remember when we had record players,and an old record would stick and keep repeating things over and over?? That is Harry Reid.
“Democrats are working to fix and improve the Affordable Care Act”
Ted Cruz tried to do that before this thing became a huge Clusterphuck Harry, but you guys shut down the Government to prevent what Obama just did, Postponement.
Am I dreaming here, or didn't Obama propose exactly what Reid claims Republicans want - for people to be able to keep their pre-Obamacare policies? Man, you just can't make this tom foolery up.
We're Democrats and we believe that if at first you don't succeed, fail, fail again.
The Anthem Blue Cross Plan that I had before Medicare had higher rates for women than men until some point in the 60s.
I called and asked if that had to do with maternity benefits, since I no longer needed them, but they said no it had nothing to do with maternity benefits.
Harry Obama Carey strikes again. Never forget that this plan originated in the Senate, so how come it wasn’t perfected then could someone please ask him?
This man is a servant of Mordor. A truly hateful, hateful, hateful little man. Didn’t pubbies suggest a delay in exchange for raising the debt ceiling? Yes they did.
Didn’t Harry little man O’Carey and the Dems shut down the government rather than agree to a delay? Yes they did.
Did he just attack the pubbies cause they now want the delay? Does this mean that they shut down the government just for spite, and to show their power? Yes they did.
Can’t the pubbies just tell them that the only way to honor the commitment to let citizens keep their plans and doctors is to repeal O’Carey? Yes they can.
Can’t they “fix” the so called problems without hurting all the people who already have insurance. Yes they can, but there is no way on God’s green earth that they can do it and keep Obama Carey.
Lord help us all. Please deliver us from the evil of Fedzilla. I pray for the salvation and restoration of our Republic.
They were proud of it two weeks before the roll out. They were saying the republicans would be taking credit for it.
it might be based on longevity rates, they live longer and may have more long term problems/payouts. who knows.
all i know is libtards only care about this when it seems/appears women are paying more than men, and they generally don’t care if it’s because of genuine differences in coverage, or not.
Well, I am sure it’s based on some statistical situation, I just don’t know what. It reversed somewhere in the 60s with men paying more than women after that.
Libs have no clue about economics, business, or how insurance has to work to stay in business. Nor do they care. They just know how they “feel”. It’s all emotion and no logic, as far as I can tell.
“Another cowardly lie by Harry Roid.
a) Insurance companies run their business using statistics
b) Fair insurance rates make the high-users of medical care pay more. Its all statistics”
male life insurance rates are higher than females.
Dingy Harry is carrying Obama's stagnant water - makes one wonder if he and Reggie Love are competitors for Obama's affections...
Democrats trying to fix HUACA (Hussein's Un-Affordable Care Act) are like the Democrat Klansmen trying to fix the lynching noose when it gets tangled up.
Some things are best left broken and abandoned.
EVERYTHING President Muhammad Al-Obama DOES is illegal.
The above and the idiotic requirement that 26 year olds be covered by their parents' policies are THE death of insurance companies since it's obvious so few want Fedgov healthcare of even State healthcare. Don't even need to discuss the Medicare/Medicaid issues, nor the lies about keeping your Doctor and plans. The fact that you can get "insurance" AFTER you're diagnosed with a disease is the death knell of insurance. It doesn't even equate in Websters.
All were correct. This debacle was designed to fail from the start. Fortunately, every day many are seeing how Fedgov intrusion is costing them and could kill them. If the idiot Pubbies will just distance them from this disaster, it may wake up a lot of LIV's. Seems too be doing just that in a small way. Give it time, this monstrosity will die of it's own weight. There is no fix to it. Obama, Reid, Pelosi, and all the Democrats will go down in history as trying to ruin the best medical system.
Major talking point!
