if government grows to address a real, quantifiable, measured need -- like 40m uninsured -- why is that automatically a bad thing? why do you hate other people?
"]no one did this more than Bush, problem was he decreased revenue as well."

I think Bush has long been passed considering his 8 years and someone else's 18 months... and the world is telling him loud and clear to STOP !

When progressives from Europe are telling this Administration to stop, that says a lot. The world is telling him loud and clear to stop. Now.

Why do you quote, and then quote again?

This is to Sean.

There are places in every city where she can get a free mamogram, and needle biopsy as long as she is over 50 . if she needs treated for something, she can get that too.

She needs to get it checked, regardless, but lumps are sometimes fatty tissue.

She stlll needs to get it checked. You can call the local United Way, or a county health department. They can direct you to the clinics.

a very good resource also, is Livestrong.org. They have telephone numbers on the site, staffed 24 hours a day, who can direct her to a place near her she can get this done for free.

Follow through with this. They will be glad to help.

If you need help PM me.

There's a difference between not seeing the US that way and being totally blind to the situations where it is.

You're just playing the rhetorical card of "my opponents blame America first".

There is this wild party going on in Toronto . it's called the g20 ECONOMIC summit. They are telling him to stop.

The markets are telling him to stop . The world is telling him to stop

Let your fingers do the walking, and you can read 1,000's of different ways he is being told to stop.

Even front page NYT. God, if they are saying t too...

Financial reform bill, they are telling him NO, because of he bank taxes.

Open your eyes, and type a magical journey.

You havent found the Rahm statement yet? Should take you 6 seconds.

Every state, has Federal Money to insure every kid. If the kid doesn't have it, it's because the parent hasn't gone to get them signed up.

You need a new computer.

You're not even bothering trying to be taken seriously are you?

I think you might be a pathological liar...

I think they were also terrible left-wingers, the very polar opposite of the grannies in the Tea Party, in another thread.

The problem is that people will keep showing up at the ER with same ability to pay (or lack thereof) regardless of whether there is health reform or not.

What do you see as the solution to that? (I mean I know you said earlier that people who can't afford to pay shouldn't expect treatment, but I'm assuming you don't really mean that the bleeder shouldn't have come into the ER if they couldn't pony up the cash).

When is a tabloid considered an "announcement"?



This is why no one takes you seriously...

If a baby is too Overweight, and it's a baby, which means I would imagine that it is not getting up at 4:00 am to make Hostess cupcakes and eating them by the 100's right.

The PARENTS have the responsbility for the baby's eating habits !
Is the Government going to do that for the mother and father too? No personal responsibility involved?????
And what if that's not the reason for the baby's weight problem? What if it's some sort of genetic thing, or some out of whack hormonal imbalance that nobody can control, or whatever?

Even if if was because of the parents' feeding habits...so, the kid should be denied care because their parents made some stupid choices? That's fair. It's a BABY, for god's sake.

I'd love to say more, but honestly, your guys' posts confuse the hell out of me. And I'm still waiting to hear why everyone's yelling at Obama when this healthcare bill had a lot of REPUBLICAN suggestions (you know, when he was trying to be all nice and bipartisan and everything?).

Sean, I'm really sorry to hear about your mom and sister . I seriously hope they both can get their issues sorted out and taken care of, and that nothing serious is wrong with your mom. Your family history sounds an awful lot like my family's. And I fully understand taking this personally, after what my family's been through for the last few years, this issue's hit really close to home for me, too.

Angela
