1. Wow. CBS and the GOP issue a joint press release and still mange to fuck it up. How sad looking

were the two puppets of their own power lust anyway - you could almost smell the fear of the radical
GOP and their media handlers as all their Bircher puscht plans falls woefully short.

And if the fucking BBC can call Syriza "radical" then what the fuck should we call the GOP?

2. "Doctor Patient Relationship That's Revered"? Like between women and reproductive care providers?

 

Boehner and McConnell.

Good grief.

4. Good thing 60 Minutes grilled them both with hard hitting questions and basic journalism, right?

Must have been inciteful follow up questioning to dig down to the truth of the matter, right?

Just kidding.....the American media is a total joke, so I learned nothing new from 60 Minutes I did not know already.

The Republicans are the greatest threat to our Democratic Republic that confronts us. I can not stand to listen to any of them and change the channel if those two appear. One is just a common drunk and the other slack jawed mealy mouth creep.

3. Representative Alan Grayson

explained the Republicans health care plan in simple terms that anyone could understand.

1. Don't get sick.

2. If you do get sick, die quickly.

He was attacked for saying this.

You should never be attacked for telling the truth !!!!!!!!!!

6. What is doctor/patient revered BS

I have been in private health care my entire. My insurance provider has changed multiple times, as in, far more than 10 times. I never get to keep my doctor. I get to hope that my doctor will be part of my new insurance group. And, luckily, that hasn't been a problem most the time. Bottom line is, I never choose my doctor. My insurer provides a list to choose from.

"Death Panel" prediction, huh. O'shucks, they looked into their GOP's crystal ball and of course blamed the Dems for it. Misinformed base parroted the lies along with their paid media.

Turns out, Dems were and are on the right side of history.

The GOPers are heartless greedy sobs who always blame others for their actions.

the GOP health insurance plan:

If you get sick

Die quick

Unless you're a fetus.

Then you shall have forever life.

Until you're born.

Then back to square one.

25. Does anyone have a clue

 

what that asshole even meant about "doctor/patient relationship that's revered." Sounds like something Sarah Palin would say for Christ sake.
I have a Doctor here in Vermont, that is on the third floor of this giant hospital annex. I actually haven't seen him in the last four visits. I have in fact seen the Physician Assistant that sees 75% of patients. The worst part is he is clueless about diagnosis, unless you actually point out the problem. They still charge the health insurance provider the same as seeing a real Physician, which is a little over $600 a visit. There certainly was a time when Doctors knew their patients, but that was 50 fucking years ago, things have changed since then. Maybe someone should tell Boehner, it's not 1963 anymore asshole, try to keep up. If Boehner and the rest of the GOP wasn't shit faced drunk 90% of the time maybe they could say something coherent. Fuck him!

29. Mitch McConnell Knows

Mitch McConnell Knows the ACA will fail because he will make it so.

All these years it is well documented that the Republicans, the Mainstream Media, and many Democratic persons have continuously used the term Obama Care.

They all should be called out for instilling race bias in the conversations about Health Care. It is named “The Affordable Care Act.” It should be addressed as such.

McConnell will ditch every effort to make it work for the average citizen simply by stalling, shutting down the government, or cutting services. It amazes me how the Republican electorate will vote against their needs, but they do by putting him in office.

What is interesting is the whole Health Care issue should combine Medicare into the Affordable Care Act, moreover, eliminate the need to buy extra supplemental insurance as Plan B.

Combine Plan A and Plan B. plus include dental and eye coverage. We don’t need an AARP what we need is better representation to begin with.

The United Health Care Company is an integral part of the problem that needs to be audited, and identified for integrity in documentation health records for the past decades.

My personal experience is first line concerned with an OSHA complaint that record keeping at the United Health Care Company in particular with railroad injuries is unreliable to establish future diagnostics in remedies.

Good, fair, and free Health Care is the Keystone Pipeline our America needs. Better yet, Added to that the real Keystone Pipeline should be a new Internet Service operated by the Post Office, with Cryptex computer electronic public keys for banking security. All Optic communication should have started yesterday.




An Internet service that is secure enough to vote, and submit citizen generated action legislation.

No porno on this new level of Internet, no advertising, only legal government, medical, and especially free undergraduate education besides mail services.

All American living buildings equipped with Wi-Fi for free internet, similarly as airplane, trains, and ships have a black box and future automobiles will have, all capable to act as homeland security links that would be very difficult for terrorist groups like Isis to sneak and commit terror acts.

America so you see we can be Healthy, Happy, and have overwhelming job opportunities plus be able to create homeland security systems for safety against crazy terrorist besides going to wars that just generate profiteering that likely cause grief for our military veterans prompting many to take their own life at the rate of twenty two a day.

Or vote in that Bush guy, and go into anther war. They might call George the Texas sharpshooter.

The name comes from a joke about a Texan who fires some gunshots at the side of a barn, then paints a target centered on the biggest cluster of hits and claims to be a sharpshooter.

We know Cheney is not...

Networks are constantly changing and out of network is very expensive so it has been a long time since we have had Boehner's cherished doctor/patient relationship -- long before Obamacare -- so that is a phony excuse for doing nothing.

45. Let's face it

They do NOT want an "alternative" for PPACA. They want it gone. Dead. Buried. Period. They want things to go back to where they were pre-PPACA. It's what their debased "base" wants. It's what their corporate contributors want. They can't and won't DO anything because ANYTHING more than what they we had pre-PPACA is too much for their base to handle/support and all of their various replacement "ideas" are too little for everybody else. Although the PPACA didn't quite go far enough, it was actually pretty brilliant for President Obama to champion its more limited approach because it basically left the GnOP with nowhere to go legislatively and yet still is a significant improvement in the system.

50. He's got no answer because "Obamacare" IS the republican health care reform

I supported it because it was the only thing that was going to get passed, and it was truly something that ANYTHING was going to be better. A half step forward vs keeping the worst health care management system possible.

But, they have no answer because it was the republican version of health care reform to counter the democratic single payer system.

This is how perverse and fucked up this country is, that a democratic president is vilified by republicans for signing a republican policy and instead of the media calling republicans out for that bullshit they go along for that ride.
