    Wisconsin GOP lieutenant governor candidate Rebecca Kleefisch praises, criticizes state health care | greenbaypressgazette.com | Green Bay Press Gazette

    It's the greatest health care system in the world, if you can afford it.

    Shocking. Seems to be going around these days.

    Government employees get their choice of Caddilac private insurance, often with little or no out of pocket

    That's not what Obamacare is.

    Getting sick and having private health insurance does not disqualify you from opposing government run healthcare.

    I also like this one about Ron Johnson in Wisconsin. He's running to repeal the health care law--an assault on personal freedoms, of course--but promises to retain the guaranteed issue provision that the mandate was introduced to make possible.

    Cognitive dissonance seems to be the order of the day.

    I don't think a lot of people in politics at least, who oppose the mandate understand why the mandate was put in the first place. Ron Johnson clearly doesn't.

    Obamacare is already crashing private insurance. The only portions working were waived.


    So Joe Miller was on Medicaid and got off it. Big fucking deal. That doesn't mean he can't oppose forcing more Americans to depend on it.

    Obamacare doesn't quit meddling with private insurance after pre-existing conditions.

    In Johnson's case, his daughter was born that way and private insurance covered it with no mandate
