    I've posted this several times BUT NO ONE seems capable much less the simpleton Obamcare supporters able to do this simple math!

    Obamacare passed by 6 votes. Some of the "YES" votes like MOST people thought they were helping 50 million people have health insurance! YES 50 million!
    Do you think some of those "YES" votes would have been "NO" if they did the simple math that shows there are less then 8 million truly uninsured people that needed health insurance???

    FACTS:
    1) Nearly 10 million counted as "uninsured" are NOT citizens:
    The Census Bureau: Income, Poverty and Health Insurance Coverage in the United States: 2009 - Income & Wealth - Newsroom - U.S. Census Bureau
    Table C. People Without Health Insurance Coverage in 2009 Not a citizen 9,936,000
    Subtract 10 million from 50 million "supposedly uninsured" leaves 40 million!

    2) 14 million people counted as part of the phony 50 million "UNINSURED" are actually covered by Medicaid!
    Page 4 of the Blue Cross Report at this web page:http://coverageforall.org/pdf/BC-BS_Uninsured-America.pdf
    14 million subtracted from 40 million leaves 26 million supposedly "UNINSURED"!

    3) Finally 18 million when needed to pass the bill were counted as "uninsured" : then when passed Pelosi et.al. NOW call them "free-loaders"!!!
    -- Nearly 18 million of the uninsured lived in households with annual incomes above $50,000 --
    -- over half of them (9.7 million) in households with incomes that exceed $75,000 annually.
    As a result of the FACT that these "uninsured" under 34 generally pay $1,448 in OUT of pocket health expenses per year!
    SO WHY would then spend money on health insurance???
    Source for the 18 million figure: CRISIS OF THE UNINSURED: 2009
    AGE the annual per capita expenditure
    20 $ 1,448 (So why should they pay a $2,000 penalty for not having insurance when they pay out less in real expenses???
    40 $ 2,601
    65 $10,245

    So for you math challenged Obamacare supporters.. subtract 18 million from 26 million!

    That leaves 8 million people that truly need health insurance!! NOT 50 million, 47 million but 8 million!
    NOW folks HOW in the f...k can you trust 1/6th of the economy to be managed by idiots who can't even subtract 32 million from 50 million?
    MORE importantly the biggest chunk the 18 million Pelosi et.al. call them free loaders because they aren't buying insurance!
    The reason they aren't it is more costly to buy something they don't need i.e. under 34, make over $50k, and spend an average of less then
    $2,000 a year!

    Now to top off this total Obamacare IDIOCY!!!

    Obama told us "I prefer to destroy the 1,300 health insurance companies that pay $100 billion a YEAR in Federal/State/Local taxes AND local property taxes on their office buildings! I prefer to put out of work the 400,000 people that work in the health insurance companies!"

    That's what he meant when he said:""I happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal health care program."

    HEY dip head Obamacare supporters... WHERE WILL the $100 billion A YEAR in tax revenue come from?
    Who will be paying the unemployment checks for the 400,000 people?

    NOW some of you truly economic challenged IDIOTS will say "HEY that's a good thing" Bankrupt those 1,300 insurance companies and their profits!
    They don't need no stinking profits!!!!

    AGAIN YOU IDiOTS!!! WHERE will the $100 billion come from to replace it?

    I am absolutely positive that some if not all of you Obamacare idiots have NO IDEA that every one of those 400,000 people also pay SS/Medicare right?
    BUT YOU also don't seem to realize THE EMPLOYERS MATCH the SAME amounts!
    SO IDIOTS where will the money paid in by the 400,000 and the matching amount to SS/Medicare come from???

    They're incapable of simple critical thought. Just look at the Public schools like in Chicago to see this very clearly.

    All a bunch of drones.

    Let me explain something.

    If you go to the "Emergency Room", the cost is anywhere from 10 to hundreds of times the cost of going to a clinic or a doctor. That cost is passed on to the tax payers.

    People using the Emergency Room as their primary source of health care were bankrupting Massachusetts. This was why Mitt Romney started Romneycare.

    Normally, Romney would be able to run on this creation which has helped the state avoid financial disaster, but the right wing is too fucking stupid because of their blind hatred for this president. They even think health care is a "bad" thing because of their undying loyalty to bigotry and hatred and their worship of "dumbfuck". We can't change them. But they are getting old. Too bad we have to give them "health care".

    This is a good post. What has always fascinated me is how the government can cause a problem like skyrocketing healthcare costs and later swoop in with a big-government solution to save the day. How can they fool so many people??? My guess is that it has a lot to do with the dumbing-down of America and the promise of a free lunch.

    IDIOT I work daily with Medicare and I can tell you what YOUR local hospital EARNS,
    what they overCharge Medicare (sometimes 6,000%!!) doing what you said..
    "padding and passing" on these Uninsured costs!

    And you. dumbf...k.. YOU NEVER heard of EMTALA have you? Passed in 1986 much like Obamacare supposedly to do something compassionate for exactly what you said!

    BUT you.dumbf...K YOU never mentioned the number one reason which a recent 18 month study by the Institute of Medicine.. AGAIN you never substantiate you idiocies)
    CHECK THIS OUT idiot before you make more stupid comments!
    ALSO I DARE you .. tell me what city you live in and I'll tell you what the largest hospital overcharges Medicare.. sometimes 6,000% MARKUP all due to EMTALA!

    Report: US health care system wastes $750,000,000,000 a year
    Report: US health care system wastes $750B a year - Fort Lauderdale Business | Examiner.com

    But dumb f..ks like you FEEL not think cause you don't we NEED more government!
    Well you idiot... THAT's WHAT got us here in the first place!

    A) Gross exaggeration of 50 million uninsured.. THERE ARE less then 8 million!
    B) Obama wants to destroy private health insurance companies.. in turn REDUCING $100 billion a year in tax revenue!!!
