A protestor at a recent Congressman Carnahan town-hall meeting
'claims' his knee was injured when he was pushed , after he was
raising hell. He later shows up to the union hall, sitting in a
wheel chair and his knee bandage, and says he is going to sue, but
here it the funny part.
"He was recently laid off and had no health care insurance and was
asking for donations to pay for his medical costs." Dumb and
Dumber...there you have the really bright Grass Roots folks!

Good example of republicans voting against their own self interests.

This thing about health care is not going away. Even republican's insurance premiums are going up it's only a matter of time before it breaks them. Republicans losing their jobs and health care. Insurance companies having less enrollees and making more profits, how is this being done? By charging who's left more money and denying more care. How long can they keep this up?

If someone young and in relatively good health doesn't want to purchase health insurance, that's their prerogative.

I know liberty is a hard concept for 'progressives' to grasp because they've never read that pesky outdated Constitution, so think of it as "pro choice" without murdering a baby.

Mark, most of us Americans are just interested in having access to the type of coverage enjoyed by you who are Canadian citizens. We realize it's not "free" and are willing to absorb reasonable increases in sales tax or income tax to help assure that none of us ever again go bankrupt trying to pay for needed health care procedures.

You know - just like you folks in Canada. Take it as a compliment and stop being ashamed of your parents.

"Manny" the manic :snort: is just bitter he's being forced to watch his forum go Jon Stewart Comedy Central -- straight down the toilet -- because his alcoholic boss couldn't stomach Obama's implosion any longer.

Mark, we're a bit busy over there handicapping and investing on sports to worry much about how many people post in the PoliticoPub.

One thing for sure is that on any given day, it's still a solid 10x the traffic as seen over here at EOG Politics room.

Not much happening here except for a half dozen late nighters pulling your cyber pants down and pinching your ass.

"Most of us" please, 50% of americans at best, and it is indeed

unconstitutional
How stupid is it for people to support a system that does them the most damage.

New York Times:

A patient in Illinois was charged $12,712 for cataract surgery. Medicare pays $675 for the same procedure. In California, a patient was charged $20,120 for a knee operation that Medicare pays $584 for. And a New Jersey patient was charged $72,000 for a spinal fusion procedure that Medicare covers for $1,629.

The health care industry is stealing from everyday Americans and taking that money and paying our congressman and republicans to keep it that way.

:doh1

Do you know why the rest of the world can offer cheaper healthcare?

because they piggy back on our technology, R & D, etc

the people that work in these industries, deserve to be paid

and that way we can continue to attract the msot brilliant minds

you sound resoundingly stupid and I feel sorry for you

the attempt you make to try and make sense of a complex issue

would be cute if you were in high school

Re: Protestor against health care, gets hurt has no health care

Insurance companies employ americans too, do you plan to let them in your home

when they are unemployed, or do we worry about that later?

its amazing that dems never bring up trial lawyers in the equation for high cost health care

Re: Protestor against health care, gets hurt has no health care

Also, insurance companies are heavily regulated -- and we all know what that means, don't we?

Thanks to government mandates (left wing lobbyists), policies are loaded with coverage people don't want or need, not to mention consumers can't even purchase coverage out of state. Just a couple examples why premiums have skyrocketed in recent years.

Leave it to the demagogic statist to completely FUBAR an industry, then point the finger at "capitalist greed."

Any day now, Christopher Dodd (prostate cancer) and Ted Kennedy (brain cancer) will be jetting off to one of Spy vs Spy's European socialist paradises to receive the best state-of-the-art treatment. Ain't that right, Spy? Please keep us posted.

Obama: "This isn't about me." (Translation: Obamacare for thee, but not for me)

The Kenyan got that right!

His antics make me smile; I mostly just feel sorry for his pathetic existence as I realize that there is always someone whose situation is worse than mine. . .After all, I could have been born a rosy-cheeked Canuck who imitates a real American boy in front of a half-dozen readers in an obscure political forum. . .
