The Socialists pushing their agenda, plain and simple , if you can't afford insurance then work out a payment plan with you Doctor, Hey ,theres a new idea, be responsible for yourself.

Maybe the freeloaders won't breed out of control if they have to foot the bill, because I am good and tired of taking care of others, I work hard for my money, I would like to keep more of it.

Now...Now..Now Sully there you go making sense again.... "Maybe the freeloaders won't breed out of control if they have to foot the bill" Oh no..... they will just go and file bankruptcy because that's the easy thing to do. Making payment arrangments on something you owe that sounds to much like RIGHT.... Sully if you keep making sense I am going to have you admitted....ROFL

 

I work for a financial instution, and the the thing that bothers me the most is when consumers rackup a lot of debt and rush to file bankruptcy. They don't even call us to work out an arrangment/payment plan.

    They made a BIG mistake to go public. I would have absolutely no problem saying that I made a killing on the stock market. Most people just talk too much.

      Europe has a much better public transportation than the United States. They have bullet trains, like France TGV, while here in America we don't have bullet trains. You can survive pretty well in Europe without having a car. Not so with the United States with a few exceptions like NYC.

      Do you want to force people to take the train?

      Studies have shown that nobody wants them here outside of you and the Obamacrats. (Yes, I just coined that term, it means far left, lunatic fringe, nutjob libs). Passenger trains can't exist in this country without tax dollars to keep them running because very few people will ride them. That means that me and everybody else will have to pay for your train ride. Well, screw that.

      Europe has found out the hard way that socialism is a colossal failure and is taking steps to correct their mistakes.

      Do you want us to go down that same road to failure just to prove it doesn't work again?

        Not every poor people are eligible for Medicaid. If you make just a little bit over the poverty line, you are not eligible for Medicaid. You would be too rich to be covered by Medicaid but too poor to afford health care on your own. Watch PBS Frontline Sick around America online for an example.

        PBS is an arm of the democrat party pushing their agenda, redhot.

        And our tax money pays to keep them on the air because they wouldn't be on the air without it.

        Try to find a source without an agenda.

        You're not getting the truth from PBS, you're getting what the libs want you to believe.

          No politician, Republican or Democrat, tells the truth because "the people" can't handle it. Knowing the truth comes from thinking for yourself and ignoring anything and everything a politician says. This is true for any country in the world.

            Yes, there are liars on both sides but anybody who studies politics knows that the dems (libs) take lying to another plane, they make it an art form. It's part of their genetic makeup. They lie so much they think whatever they say becomes the truth somehow. They can't stop lying even if they want to. It's their nature.

            Them's the cold hard facts.

              People fall into unfortunate circumstances to no fault of their own. They get laid off, they lost their coverage and then they get run over by a car or get cancer from genetic predisposition. No payment plan in the world would be able to cover the hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars of medical expense without insurance. I feel sorry for those people. It is unfortunate that people are being labeled Communist or Socialist for being compassionate.

                Yeah, I am sure FoxNews is a source without an agenda. Fair & Balanced, We Report, You Decide.

                  At least you'll get straight news from FOX and you can make up your own mind unlike everybody else that tells you only the news that benefits their agenda or is twisted to benefit their agenda.

                  Don't confuse news with commentary.

                  That's what the other guys try to get you to do.

                  And apparently you fell for it.

                    As I recall it was Republican lies about WMD which took America into Iraq. How much has this cost the American taxpayer, so far? Now add to that the lives lost, and then add the lives destroyed, both American and Iraqis. The Republicans aren't as saintly as you seem to think, rdgnr, nor are the democrats as dastardly.

                      Compassionate? What a joke. Libs are only compassionate if they have someone else's money to give away. Studies show that libs give less to charitable causes than any other group. Even the super-rich libs are tightwads with their own money.

                      But they love to confiscate and give away other people's money.

                          Since when Fox gives straight news? They bend it to their liking. Sure, their competitors do the same thing but at least they never claim to be fair and balanced. Calling the President of the United States as a Communist is very insulting.

                            the stock market excuse might work, easy enough to go back and look up things that were unbeliveably cheap not so long ago,but you will need to find some obscure things,no microsofts or googles otherwise people will be nagging you for advice your not qualified to give.and if you steer them wrong,look out.maybe better to say its a settlement from a lawsuite, and as part of the settlement i am not permitted to talk about it.

                              Thanks Haymaker. The lawsuite angle is a great idea - a lawsuite settlement I can't talk about. That's going to be my story when I win the jackpot.
