    President Obama has signed a bill extending health coverage to 4 million uninsured children.

    The East Room signing ceremony on Wednesday represented a much-needed win for Obama on health care a day after his administration suffered a major setback with the loss of his nominee to lead his drive for sweeping reform, Tom Daschle.

    The bill went to the White House fresh from passage in the Democratic-controlled House, on a vote of 290-135.

    Well--at least this is being paid for by cigarette smokers. Yet, in this new so-called stimulus bill thats really not a stimulus, there is 58 MILLION dollars for smoking cessation?

    Our government at work again!

    Be careful when you're checking the boxes on those medical apps..if you make a boo boo and identify yourself as Christian, chances are you're no longer eligible.

    First not evryone who is uninsured is poor and not a few aren't. In fact if I'm in my thirties and making much above 50k a year and in reasonably good health the only insurance I want is catastrophic care.

    Exactly.
    My parents didn't have fucking health insurance.

    Until I was WELL into adulthood the only insurance I had was the periods of time when I was down and out and getting medical because I had young kids in the home.

    When my oldest was born, we actually paid for everything in cash, over time. Imagine that!

    Neither of my boys has medical, they work and one has a young child.

    Medical coverage is not a RIGHT. It's a privilege, or something you earn yourself. It's not something YOU HAVE COMING TO YOU because YOU'RE A FUCKING LOSER. People can and will support themselves when it comes down to it.

    Don't believe me? Ask my nemesis, KK...who has been down and out and lived the life. We have many differences and I think she's a nut...but at least she recognizes that people are accountable for themselves.

    It's something you have to learn the hard way, and too many liberal pansy asses who insist that the state should provide a cushy living for every single man, woman and child on the planet..and make sure they're teeth are straight....have never had to learn ANYTHING the hard way, have never been down and out themselves, and have had limited association with the people they think we should provide a free ride to.

    Where they always get it from. US 70% of this nation used to be smokers, today I believe it's in the 30% range. (That means a lot of x-smokers in this country). 62. per pack more may encourage even more to toss those cigarettes. Once they do--up goes the deficit & our tax bills.
