    Massachusetts State Treasurer says Obamascare is NOT the way to go.
    The two plans are similar and rather than succeeding in the goal to improve healthcare, will become insolvent and damage quality of care and our economy.

    Massachusetts' problem is that they mandated health insurance but did a half-assed job and putting in adequate regulations on insurance companies and removing state protectionism policies. Those 2 reasons alone are why you put too much effort into writing this, since there's very little relevance that massachusetts actually has aside from mitt romney's shiney, satanic Mormon smile.

    And only ONE of the plans includes dissolving trade barriers. Just wait till Canadian or French pharmaceuticals can start selling to our hospitals. And you know what the pharmaceuticals did when this entered the bill? They called the competition socialist!

    Nah... 2016. :wink:
    It's not as if Sarah Palin, the GOP's answer to "political celebrity", is going to win in 2012 and we all know Trinsanity only votes by way of vagina anyhow.

    I wonder if it's going to spend the $10K for a photo op with Palin & Bachmann at the next Klan.... errr, I mean "Tea Party" rally - the female political version of Tweedle-Dum and Tweedle-Dipshit. :biggrin1:

    Of course, you've all noticed that the He/She and Holy Surgical Mess It only posts "scare" posts. "We're all going to die!" "Obamascare!" "Obama is a socialist!" "America will be bandkrupt!"

    Well, last I checked, the USA was already bankrupt. It can't get any worse. After all, we've got this new Tea Bag militia who will rush to our borders and shores to fight off debt collectors from around the world.

    Even the He/She and Holy It (sorry to hear about that last botched cut job) will gladly throw itself under a Chinese businessman to prevent 'Mericuh from benefitting from public health care. I suggest we throw her under one right now.

    Now, don't you feel so much safer? :smile:

    The right wing loons apparently live in constant fear. And the Republican Party has learned how to use fear extremely deftly to motivate the gullible.

    I say that individuals should be able to sign an affidavit and opt out of the 'Obamacare' program, and negotiate their own health insurance policies on their own terms... No IRS penalties and no federal Medicare/Medicaid taxes to pay, ever...

    Naturally, those who choose to opt out will not receive the benefit of any of the government created healthcare programs, tax shelters and bankruptcy rules geared to help people with their inevitable healthcare needs. They will be locked out of any exchanges, co-ops or any other program that the government legalizes in the future. Also, insurers and providers will not be required to adhere to any of the new regulations, when dealing with those customers either. Those who want to be on their own, will be truly on their own... Most importantly, once people sign off to leave the 'Obamacare' system, they can't come back 10-25-50 years later, when they're broke/bankrupt or inevitably in poor health, and now need a 'taxpayer bailout' of their own. If they get into trouble later on, they'll have to hope that their family can help, or that there will be a charity there to provide life giving medical care.

    I seriously would love to pass something like that, and let the stupid people slit their own throats. The sooner we thin the stupid ones out of the herd, the sooner this nation can get back on track.

    You must be talking about yourself...:rolleyes:

    According to Obama the only way to get preconditions covered, no annual or lifetime limits, and prevent denials or drops from coverage is to mandate more people in the system.

    So, there is no money to cover pre-existing conditions, annual/lifetime limits, without covering everybody...that's what Obama says on the one hand to get his bill...

    But in the next breath Obama's complaining that there is so much money and the Insurance companies have it! Healthcare Insurance CEO's couldn't explain why premimums have increased so much. :rolleyes:

    Concerns about the OP's sanity aside, it's not being a loon to point out the insanity inherent in bankrupt countries doubling down and going even deeper in debt as the path to fiscal salvation.

    Trinity,

    A sign of intelligence is the ability to understand and keep two opposing views in one's mind and still sort out which is correct in differing situations.

    You have shown time and again that you completely lack this ability.

    I think this is points to a larger issue in this country... lack of intelligence. FoxNews has found its audience in these folks.

    I call it "stealth racism"; finding anything, no matter how insane, inane or pointless, to leverage against Obama, without ever using the lowbrow words that make people cringe. Here, the ideas make you cringe.

    What's even funnier is when they claim they're not being "racist" all because they don't use slurs or name call. Such unbelievable cockamamy it's shameful.

    Rather lame and unintelligent, considering all of the effort you put into longer and longer threads with absolutely no substance.
