    Once again, Paul Krugman does his homework and conservatives come out looking like ideologues who support profits over sanity, and corporate markets over public health. Shame!

    Conservatives want to hide the facts of the ''California Death Spiral''

    And the sad fact is that there are ignorant conservatives out there and here @ USMB who proudly crow that they do not read Krugman or the NYT.

    Yet here we have Krugman quoting people from ConNews and most bright people are aware that most every single conservative leader reads the NYT.

    sad....when wingnuts fly.

    ...too bad the TeaPartyLunatics and RWL @ USMB can't stomach reading anything other than propaganda put out to protect profits and a failing market...the health care for profit market.

    I'm going to expose Paul Krugman:

    He's a Jew. He hates whites and loves blacks. Big yawn.

    I guess nobody told Krugman that the size of a state is irrelevant to the fact that insurance companies operating in that state all have to comply with the same onerous regulations.

    As for propaganda, Krugman excels at it.

    Why do you think you are entitled to the labor of others?

    Krugman also burnishes his reputation as a compulsive liar, in telling this whopper:

    Amongst the "ailments" required to be covered in Fornicalia:
    • Alcoholism
    • Drug Abuse Treatment
    • In Vitro Fertilization
    • Contraceptives
    • Mental Health General
    • Mental Health Parity

    Amongst the practitioners required to be reimburseded by insurance:
    • Acupuncturists
    • Chiropractors
    • Social Workers
    • Professional Counselors
    • Psychiatric Nurse
    • Psychologists

    California Health Insurance Quotes

    Then there is the 2003 law, which mandates that employers be forced to provide insurance:

    The Cost of California's Health Insurance Act of 2003

    Forcing people into the insurance market who would be most likely to use their isnurance as defacto pre-paid medical can't have any positive downward pressure on pricing.

    Ain't Google great?

    Yeah, really an unregulated marketplace. :rolleyes:

    Dude, as dopey as you usually are (they don't call IT dope for nothin'), I expect more from you than to mimic the out of context nitwitticisms of a Crusading Fool like Frank.

    Here is EXACTLY what Krugman says about California in regards size and states...in full context
    He was countering an argument made by others.

    you be getting :cuckoo:

    As usual, your premise(s) is flawed.
