    I still don't get this shit, we have no money to cover Medicaid and Medicare for our own but we have aid for Pakistan and other foreign countries and we have money to give tax cuts to the rich as if taxcuts don't need to be paid for. If Democrats were smart they would hammer the Republiturds on this point. But its true, medical costs will skyrocket because uninsured patients will still have to be treated in some form and those without coverage will be doomed to die and get sicker lowering their ability to work and contribute.

    So you are seriously going to argue that 3.4 Million parents are negligent and going to let their children go without health care? If that's the case we have bigger problems than Medicaid.

    Oh, and Thank you for admitting that Obama was lying about Obamacare:)

    SCHIp is among the most stupid bloated programs out there. The OP naturally neglects to mention that "children" can be 21 years old. It is a grossly expensive program that is nothing but middle class subsidy.
    Yet another dishonest "the GOP hates children" thread. The Dums and Leftards have zero credibility anymore to discuss anything.
    Besides, does anyone believe Harry Reid anymore?

    That seems like a pretty conservative estimate; that's about a million fewer kids than received insurance for the first time in the past two years through CHIPRA. In reality, the Republican budget begins to end CHIP, which covers over 7 million kids. It also slashes Medicaid, which has historically been (and currently is) a program mostly for children, i.e. most beneficiaries are kids (one might think that slashing the program would affect the ~25 million kids covered through Medicaid). I don't recall seeing an estimate of children's coverage in the CBO analysis of the GOP budget so I'm curious where Reid is getting that number.

    At present, considering that it was GOP policies, unfunded wars, unregulated financial institutions, that created the present unemployment, the ending of funding for the healthcare of children is just another proof that the GOP is the enemy of all Americans but the very wealthy.

    And the Dems' plan (if you can call it a plan) cuts Health Care Availability by driving doctors and hospitals out of business.

    I see. Japan, Germany, Taiwan, Switzerland, ect. have no doctors or hospitals? How about Costa Rica?

    Cease you lying, and face the fact that almost every other industrial nation does health care better, less cost per capita, all citizens covered, and the results are far superior to ours. All you are fighting for are the death panels of the insurance companies and the CEO's unearned multi-million dollar salaries for denying medical care for which the insured have paid over the years.
