    No wonder Republicans never truly released any sort of plan, it fucking sucks.

    Then all they have to do is BUY IT THEM-FUCKING-SELVES

    You have the choice to buy insurance or not.. as long as it is made available, it is upon you to do what it takes to purchase it for yourself if you want it... and that is what this and other options are about... not some fairytale leftist wish for healthcare provided to you by the government at the expense of someone else

    52 milllion sounds better than the Democratic plan which will leave everyone without private coverage.

    Women who are survivors of Domestic Abuse can be denied or lose their insurance for simply that fact. What's your solution then?

    Besides, who do you think pays for the uninsured now when they go to the hospital? :eusa_eh:

    Preexisting conditions are wrong. Republicans will not be changing that. All Republicans are doing with their plan is helping Big Business. Serving Big Business and not the American people. Health Bills was one of the number one reasons for bankruptcy in this country last year. Each year, more and more go broke because of the rising costs of Health Insurance among other things.

    We need a solution. To sit there and do nothing would bring no good. I'm just curious by the way, you're a Christian against Gay Marriage correct?

    Ahhh... but if you choose not to go to the hospital that has handed out 'free care' to illegals or those who do not pay, then you don't have to.... and lest ye not forget that other things do cover those no-pays like donations, endowments, volunteer clinic time by doctors, etc.... and the hospital does indeed try and bill those who end up not paying.. and there are plenty of uninsured that do pay out of pocket

    More to it than just that, yank

    So why does Obamacare have a six month waiting period for pre-existing conditions. Someone with cancer or a serious heart condition gets a death sentence.

    So we increase the deficit by $8 to $10 billion to insure 3 million more people?

    Yes it's so terrible that it actually manages to reduce costs,reduce the deficit,not raise taxes,and doesn't fine or imprison American Citizens for not having Health Insurance. Yea it's just so terrible. Hey I'll still take it over Reid & Pelosi's disastrous Behemoths any day.
