HR3200 didn't pass the House, you fucking moron.
The proposed America's Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009 (or HR 3200) was an unsuccessful bill introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives on July 14, 2009. The bill was introduced during the first session of the 111th Congress as part of an effort of the Democratic Party leadership to enact health care reform. The bill was not approved by the House.
A quote from the cut and paste you don't think I read:
"They are part of an unusual, informal health insurance system..."
You are justifying denying insurance for millions because it will interfere with a small UNUSUAL system. You're all heart.
Here's a reading comp exercise for you:
It is the bill that the president proposed and that was passed by the house. It is the bill he was talking about when he said "you can keep your current insurance".
The current law is the bill that was passed by the senate. GOP intransigence is the reason you got this one instead of HR3200.
The current law, flawed though it is, is better that the Republican plan which is to do nothing.
Would this be the same McCrory who says we cannot afford unemployment insurance for our working people who were downsized by the very businesses he signed the huge tax cut for? Is this the same McCrory who turned down the federal money that would have provided Medicaid to NC's poor? Is this the same McCrory who says we don't have money to pay our teachers?
Tell us again who makes up the "entitlement class" then go work on your billion dollar offer for Boeing.
Perhaps you should read - if English comprehension is within your capabilities - the second paragraph of the NYTimes article I quoted. Here is the key phrase again:
"lower insurance rates through group plans, typically set up by their professional associations or chambers of commerce"
All of that took place in the "for profit health care industry".
Oh goodie, more millions for Hollywood cokeheads and more rush hour fusterclucks in uptown.
Great post. I'd like to add that he reminds me of Margaret Thatcher -- all ideology, all the time -- with zero empathy for those whose lives are wrecked by that same ideology.
"…..to control all who are destined to worship the Beast, those whose number is 666. The tribulation is coming….." Hell, man, the real tribulation is realizing that nuts like fromthedead are still out there, waiting to pounce on any opportunity to spread their weird, twisted version of Christianity.
Will someone please give fromthedead his meds? Thank you.
Please explain the Republican plan to help millions of people who have been rejected by the for profit health insurance industry get coverage so they can avoid being bankrupted by the for profit health care industry.
Like I said: Hook line & sinker and screaming it from the hill tops.
I see. That explains why they have over 700 military bases in more than 100 foreign countries and keep sending armed drones into our country to kill people they think might be enemies, and anyone standing anywhere near them. Oh, wait...
That said, you do realize this article was written in January 2011, right?
"Jong-Il" is Kim's first name, so calling him that would be like calling the US President "Barack". The proper way to refer to him in print is "Kim".
I am constantly amazed by the willful ignorance (aka turning a blind eye, burying your head in the sand) of so many people who insist that the Muslim religion is peaceful and that Muslims mean us no harm. Their own so-called holy book, the Quran (Koran) states that there are only 2 houses. You either belong to the house of Allah as a devout, Muslim follower or else you belong to the house of wrath. If you belong to the house of wrath you are an enemy to Allah and the Muslim religion and are therefore subject by their 'holy' laws to be put to death - yes, that's right - put to death (sound familiar with sharia law?)
Believing that Muslims mean no harm to you and yours is utter foolishness. Wake up people, the writing is on the wall. The Muslim religion will take over the entire world and will be the binding force that is used to control all who are destined to worship the Beast, those whose number is 666. The tribulation is coming ...
DLP you really should take some Kaopectate for that bullshit you keep spewing.
From the New York Times, the country's most slavishly-pro-Obama newspaper:
"Thousands of New York City writers, opera singers, music teachers, photographers, doctors, lawyers and others are learning that their health insurance plans are being canceled and they may have to pay more to get comparable coverage, if they can find it.
They are part of an unusual, informal health insurance system that has developed in New York, in which independent practitioners were able to get lower insurance rates through group plans, typically set up by their professional associations or chambers of commerce. That allowed them to avoid the sky-high rates in New York’s individual insurance market, historically among the most expensive in the country.
But under the Affordable Care Act, they will be treated as individuals, responsible for their own insurance policies. For many of them, that is likely to mean they will no longer have access to a wide network of doctors and a range of plans tailored to their needs. And many of them are finding that if they want to keep their premiums from rising, they will have to accept higher deductible and co-pay costs or inferior coverage."
Read that, idiot? INFERIOR COVERAGE.
To be fair, North Carolina GOP Chairman Claude Pope rebuked the tweet, calling it highly offensive. He even asked Rucho to apologize.
I don't understand what has happened to the former Grand Old Party. It's like they have fallen into the grip of some collective mental illness. While politicians of all parties have been known for playing fast and loose with the truth, the GOP since the Clinton Administration have taken it to a whole new level.
The ACA provides a path to PRIVATE health insurance to 20 million people who were uninsured, but the right wing echo chamber is screaming about 5 million people who are being forced to upgrade the policies that in reality covered very little. No one is being told they can no longer have insurance, they are being told their non complying policy will be canceled and are being offered a policy that does meet the standards. The Republicans are insinuating that the ACA is causing 5 million people to become uninsured...and the blind followers are taking it hook line and sinker and screaming it from the hill tops.
A better idea would be to shut down the Commerce Department and pass a Constitutional Amendment banning all incentives.
Just toss it over there on the huge pile of OTHER patronage conflicts of interest.
Corruption has reached the level that politicians don't even try to hide it anymore. They believe it to be their right by virtue of being elected. The corruption was validated by the Supreme Court in the bizarre "Citizens United" decision where they said allowing large corporations and PACs to buy control of the government is freedom of speech.
He is disgusting.
Brilliant show as usual. Can't wait till they return to Charlotte.
Time's award is now officially "Person Of The Year Not Named Edward Snowden".
