    WE DON’T WANT SOCIALIZED MEDICINE.

    When illegal aliens go into ER and do not pay, that is socialized medicine. When they go to country clinics and receive medical and dental care on a sliding scale, which is subsidized by the government, they are receiving socialized medical care.

    We already have many socialized programs and there are working. I am hearing those Village Idiots say they don’t want socialized medical care and at the same time “hands of my Medicare.” They don’t know what the word “socialized” mean. People who are receiving Social Security, SSI, Medicare, Medicare Advantage plans, Medicare prescriptions program, Nevada Drug Card, Medicaid or Medical, WIC, SCHIP and Private Healthcare subsidized by their employer, is receiving Socialized Healthcare and programs. They are getting far more out of these programs than they have put into them. Who is paying the rest? Even Mass Healthcare is subsidized by the Federal Government.

    “Socialized” is just a “scare tactic” word used by Radical Right Wingnuts to brainwash and scare Village Idiots in to submission and control.

    What’s wrong with the present Healthcare Bill that contains much of what the Right Wingnuts agree on? They do not have their grubby hands in it. The bill do not have to be trashed because much of it is approved by right wingnuts and their supporters Village Idiots.

    Most of the people who are against the bill do not even know what is in the bill.

    A bi-partisan bill will not be a perfect bill either. Take what we have and make it better if they can. But it will still not be a perfect healthcare bill.

    Socialized Medicine is a description.

    40 thousand people a day die because of unaffordable healthcare is a scare tactic.

    If you can't see the difference, there is no hope for you.

    I always love it when liberal Democrats tell us all what we need and what's best for us. There is a bit of a difference in Medicare and Social Security. The vast majority of people who are on those programs and use those benefits have worked hard during their lifetimes and paid into the programs that you describe. Illegal aliens have not paid a dime towards these benefits and are collecting them on the backs of people that did earn the right to use those benefits. Free social programs are one of the biggest reasons that the State of California is collapsing financially. You can't give things away to other people for free. When you do this, others must pay for that "gift". Owe Bama's Health Care Reform bill is going to fail and not get passed into law - regardless of what the village idiot, Nancy Pelosi, tells us all on tv. The majority of American citizens do not want it and are not going to standby and let the government ram it down our throats this time. Democrats that want to keep their cushy Congressional job and not be voted out of office are going to abandon the Owe Bama ship like rats leaving just before it sinks.

    You left out the VHA, the most socialized of all our socialized medicine. Try to find a Republican who doesn't support that.

    Do you honestly believe that the people who use the VHA have not paid for the services they are receiving?

    I agree with much of what you said. Republicans don't want to pay for other people's health insurance, but they want me to pay for their Medicare. Obama, the alleged Socialist, proposes $400 billion of cuts to Socialized Medicine, aka Medicare, and McCain, the alleged Capitalist, introduces legislation to restore that funding.

    You nonetheless weaken your argument when you start with silly name calling and "wingnut" nonsense. If you truly believe the GOP has done nothing to stop the biggest socialized medicine on the planet, Medicare, then you shouldn't feel the need to label your opponents wingnuts, cons, or teabaggers.

    We don't want socialized medicine.

    What we do want is someone in government making sure that the insurance companies don't fuck us.

    I have no problem paying taxes to support the VHA. I do have a problem funding self-entitled senior citizens, many of whom are Republicans, who expect Social Security and Medicare to look after them, even as those programs head to insolvency.

    The greatest generation is my generation who is paying for benefits we won't receive. The old farts expecting government handouts are the weakest generation.

    What the fuck does that have to do with whether or not it's socialized medicine?
