• Why did ABC, CBS, and NBC ignore MO vote?

    If you watch these stations you don't know that Missouri overwhelmingly voted Tuesday that they would NOT participate in the Obama health insurance fiasco. It's a huge move and they just ignored it. Wonder why?

  • What L.E.D. should I use?

  • Don't we already pay for universal health care?

    If, according to Obama, there is $500 BILLION in waste and fraud in Medicaid and Medicare and, according to the US Census, there are $32 Million Americans uninsured, wouldn't cutting the waste and fraud pay for health care and a tax cut?

Even if the 32 Million wasn't a complete exaggeration that includes ALL uninsured even the super rich and people who simply choose not to purchase health insurance, wouldn't that be enough?

  • Why didn't Murtha go to prison?

    I mean, he was no murderer like Kennedy, but he indicated he was willing to accept bribes and NEVER REPORTED THE OFFER TO THE FBI as required by law. You or I would have went to prison but for Democrats, it's almost like we expect and accept it.

    to wait for pap smears and mammograms or will they pay for them in a public option? I'm wondering how many people are recognizing that this is the future of your health care when the public option becomes the only option. They are not following the advice of the government panel that is almost the sole source for setting medicare guidelines because it's not politically correct. Which is worse, a government panel overriding the American Cancer Society recommendations saying you don't need the exams or politicians with no medical background ignoring the advice and spending money on supposedly unnecessary tests because it's PC? Are you aware that we have the best cancer survival outcomes in the world because we do early screening and countries with socialized medicine usually don't? "The new guidelines were issued by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, whose stance influences coverage of screening tests by Medicare and many insurance companies."

  • The health care reform bill won't reduce costs or cover the uninsured?

    Let me see if I have this right. This trillion dollar bill won't cover 12,000,000 uninsured Americans and will raise health care costs, the exact opposite of the stated goals. This according to the Congressional Budget Office. We all know the government has never estimated anywhere near what actual costs would be. Medicare is currently 900%... show more

This according to the Congressional Budget Office. We all know the government has never estimated anywhere near what actual costs would be. Medicare is currently 900% more than projections. Isn't it reasonable to assume this is a 5-10 trillion dollar bill over the first 10 years that we actually receive full benefits (starting 10 years from now)? Please offer honest, reasonable, and intelligent responses if you disagree.

    The Democrats have killed an amendment that would require a full disclosure of the costs of the bill by the CBO and a three day waiting period so we can read the bill once it's completed. Where is the transparency we were promised? What is the big secret? Is it the 560 pork laden amendments the Democrats are hiding?
