    When Obama was up there bumping his gums as usual, all he talked about was our lousy health care system in the US. We have the best health care in the world and not once did he say anything about all the doctors, nurses and other medical folks and what a great job they do for us. I've seen nurses working double shifts till they were so tired they were about to drop and we have some of the best doctors anywhere and hospitals, etc. and not one time did he mention that. He was too busy talking about how bad it was. Yes, we need something to help fix our health care system but there are a lot of other ways to do it besides what Obama is pushing down our throats. All the illegals for one thing that we are taking care of and if the politicians would cut out all the "pork" like their pet projects that we don't need and start going through and checking on some of this insurance fraud and whatever there are lots of ways to fix the economy and figure this thing out about health care, but he is too busy trying to push his crap as fast as he can. Why not take more time and get it right?

    Bullshit ! I dealt with hospitals from Blacksburg....think VA Tech massacre.... to Buffalo to Miami and the scumbags couldn't even treat me for chronic Tachycardia.
    $100 grand out of pocket in 12 years.

    I come to live in the middle of the " third world" and have not had an episode in 4 years. I didn't even go to a hospital. A pharmacist just laughed out loud and said " take these every day" Yeah. It's not FDA approved.

    The health care up there is a horrific joke. I can tell from your avatar you are of the extreme brainwashed. What kind of trailer do you live in ?
    Idiots..................

    The FDA is a huge part of the problem for America.

    Congrats on getting your chronic tachy under control.

    1) How fast?

    2) Beta blockers or calcium channel blockers didn't work?

    3) What are you taking now?

    bumping his gums? how ignorant...though i'm sure you'll get kudos from the other rightwingnuts.

    and no...we DON'T have the best health care in the world. We're number 37, just ahead of Slovenia and behind Costa Rica.

    The World Health Organization's ranking of the world's health systems

    you aren't very well-informed are you?

    or do you think faux outrage and propaganda are a good substitute for knowledge?

    What kind of "trailer" do I live in? Do you not see how stupid that sounded? By the way, my avatar just shows that I love America and am proud of it and I hate to see what obama is trying to do to it.

    i pay for my own cancer screening. Thanks. Hopefully will be able to avoid the whole cancer treatment thing. I get back 80% of reasonable and customary... that comes to about $40 back out of about $400.

    But do I have to get cancer or go elsewhere because she's a liar? *shrug*

    And I'd probably choose Sloan Kettering... but then again, I can do that because I have health coverage.
