The biggest failure of the Bush administration was the failure to educate the gullible idiots who are falling for this free-lunch health care "reform" scam.
Pharmaceutical companies and kick-back recipients are the only benefactors. After 1/2 trillion dollars is stolen from Medicare, they WILL pull the plug on your grandmother.
As Dr. Ezekiel J. Emanuel, Obama's special advisor on health care, puts it, "services provided to individuals who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens are not basic and should not be guaranteed. An obvious example is not guaranteeing health services to patients with dementia."
To Republican stop calling your colleague DOCTORS they are senator and not doctors in senate.
this idiot, John Boehner does not have any brain...period. He talks absolutely no sense at all. Still he talks like 14th century. America is changing, this idiot does not know. Sleepy crap. They need to pass this much needed Health care reform. Dig the propertis of these GOP thugs, including Mitch McConnoll. Ok. So is Eric Cantor. America is totally bribed. Eric Cantor needs to change his attitude and support health care reform. Pres. Obama, you have my vote, just pass this bill. One lady said on cnn that she marries anyone who provides health care....Shame, shame, on these GOP thugs...Dems, unite and pass this, there is nothing you lose, you win...ok.
Reconciliation is a fraud. Is anyone naive enough to think a reconciliation bill will be approved by both hopuses without change/additions/deals and more pork.
I can expect to hear something new from Nancy, but Boehner and his republican zombies will just keep saying their usual No, No and NO!
No thanks, doesn't make for great TV viewing.
Do you know how they will get that 1/2 trillion out of Medicare?
As Dr. Ezekiel J. Emanuel, Obama's special advisor on health care, put it:
"services provided to individuals who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens are not basic and should not be guaranteed. An obvious example is not guaranteeing health services to patients with dementia."
After they pull the plug on your grandmother, you think they will give any of that money to you?
As a delusional twit who thinks he has his pulse on what Americans want, Boner will talk about death panels and a government take over, neither of which will register on the truth O meter.
Is it OK to refer to Boner as "Agent Orange?" Maybe "Chemical Boner?" He is just as toxic.
I'll defintely be watching Pelosi. She is a strong intelligent leader who can deliver votes when needed.
Boehner is a do-nothing whiner who spends most of his time on the golf course instead of working for the People he took an oath to serve. He only knows 3 sentences that he has repeated over and over for a year. Why not just get a Boehner cardboard figure with a cycling recording that does his daily whining for him?
He can then go back to the golf course, the tanning salon, and his toupe stylist.
Ohio, you need to get rid of this do-nothing obstructionist bag of hot air who has done NOTHING for you or anyone else this entire Congress. He is a national embarrassment. How about electing a decent man who cares about and actually knows what the People of Ohio need and want?
Thank the Lord we don't have much longer we have to say anything to these morons.
As the president said, all the healthcare suggestions have been put on the table. It's just a matter of choosing which ones to keep. The Reps are just being obstructionist when they insist on starting over. It's a power play to them, Pelosi used to deny chairmanship of committees to Dems who voted with Reps. We assume that Reps are being similarly punished if they break ranks. How embarrassing that these are the people elected to help us! They can shut up the mealy-mouth rhetoric. I'd love to send them all home and fill Congress with Independents.
