      Jack, I would be too if I tried to watch that garbage. Give me The Americans, NCIS, NCIS New Orleans, Hawaii 5-0, Blue Bloods, Elementary, Limitless, Castle and I am good to go.

      Thank you Obamacare for ruining healthcare for all Americans. People are being treated like cattle now and the new crop of doctors are mainly foreigners who barely speak English. The good American doctors have sold out and many stopped practicing because of Obamacare, regulations, paperwork etc.

        FYI – this study covered 2000-2008 which was 2 years before Obamacare became law. The results of this study cannot be blamed on Obamacare.

        That said – I also enjoy The Americans, Castle and Limitless.

          You can word parse all you want, but Obamacare passed in 2010 is the driving force with the deterioration of healthcare in this country. It has driven many a good doctor into early retirement, closing their practice and the replacements are not good and choices are just not there for consumers. What a nightmare!

            What word parsing? All I said was the study referenced in this article deals with pre-Obamacare data. I agree Obamacare is a major failure, but Obamacare has nothing to do with these findings.

            It is unbelievable how stupid yet arrogant Agent is. Based on his comments here he doesn’t know the meaning of about 10% of the words he uses. Agent, I hate to break this to you, but you are what is called functionally illiterate.

            I have tried to explain to Agent multiple times that word parsing is defined as “to examine in a minute way – analyze critically” and actually has a positive connotation irrespective of him always using it negatively. As usual, it has fallen on deaf ears.

            Your response reading this BS is that pointing it out as BS is somehow wrong? This guy is a racist, completely uneducated piece of trash, he should be mocked and derided until he is ashamed to show his face in public.

            UW – I was trying to make a joke. Agent loves to use the word “pontificate” these days. He doesn’t know what that word means, either.

            Sorry, Planet. I saw your comments about pontificating and the Pope in another thread right after I posted that. I totally pulled an Agent.

            Yes, it does seem that ‘pontificate’ is one of Agent’s new words. He also seems to be stuck on references to personality tests. New stuff in his repertoire!

          So, Rosenblatt; how are members of the US military doing in getting adequate health care NOW? How many died over the last 7 years, waiting for critical operations or other types of care? Answer that before we discuss civilian US citizens seeking treatment from fewer health care providers NOW, and many MORE Illegal Immigrants invading ERs.

            I already said Obamacare is a failure and I never said anything about the VA system nor imply that’s the solution. I said nothing about civilian citizens treatment, number of providers, people being seen at the ER….why are you asking me all those questions?

            All I wrote, which I’ll now say for the third time, is the study referenced in this article deals with pre-Obamacare data. You agree with that, right?

            Republicans refuse to allow spending on military care, as always. The Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Bill is a recent example, which came after Republicans let care for 9/11 responders expire. They also forced cuts through sequestration. The line about veterans dying because they were forced to wait for healthcare has been checked and debunked by places like factcheck. It’s a low spouted by Fiorina and then regurgitated by the right. VA funding, your recent pet project, has nothing to do with Obamacare or how it affects private health care, no matter how many times you repeat it

            Good one Yogi. It is interesting that the leftists always deflect from the “massive” failure of their own program and just call it a failure. That is like Ron saying he has disagreed with some of the policies of Obama. I look forward to the day Trump cleans up the VA and gets proper treatment for our brave vets or he closes the whole thing down and gives them vouchers to be treated at good facilities. Progressive Socialism is a mental disease as demonstrated by his cohorts.

            My point is that the VA Health-Care-Less Administration is a real world laboratory demonstration of what will become of the US Healthcare system under perpetuation of the ACA and a single payer system proposed by ALL OF Obama, Trump, and Hillary.

          Rosenblatt, I’m glad I finally got a good response from you. I may frame your admittance that Obamacare is a super-duper failure. Now, all you have to do is convince Ron, Planet, UW, Confused and a few other young Progressive Trolls of it. Good luck! You have a huge challenge.

          By the way, the VA is also a super-duper failure. I would say it was of biblical proportions, but I know you are an atheist so I will go easy on you. It goes to scale of disaster.

            Agent,

            I have been against the PPACA since it was signed. Unless you can quote me ever sating that I supported it, STOP LYING!!!!!!!!!!

            I am the only one who has come up with a plan that solves nearly all if the issues people have with health care, including the elimination of the government’s administration of health care (Medicaid, Medicare and the VA) and putting health care into the hands of private companies.

            You must have missed the 12+ posts where Ron has said over and over again that Obamacare is a failure and needs to be replaced. That said, people are free to believe whatever they want even if it differs from my opinion. I don’t have to convince anyone of anything.

            We live in America – if someone wants to believe something (like all Millenials are lazy freeloaders, or anyone who isn’t a Christian is an atheist, or that Flo is not a fictional character), they’re free to do so and be wrong.

          After reading policies and company info all day and looking at the garbage you post, I am ready for rest and some good TV shows or movies. You should try to read the book 1984 by George Orwell and you can get a glimpse of a future you seem to want.

      Good one Yogi. Of course, you could include the rest of the House, Senate and the Obama Administration as medical errors, but the list would be too long. It is interesting that the Progressives milquetoast admittance that Obamacare was a failure doesn’t quite cut it with the American people who view it as a colossal disaster and financial burden of “biblical” proportions. Sorry about that Atheists.

        Stop “word parsing” Agent. There are no degrees of failure. If you scored a 40 out of 100 on a test and I scored a 0 out of 100, we both failed. You wouldn’t say “I failed, but Rosenblatt colossally failed” right? You’d just say “We both failed.”

        Agent,

        If you were a true Christian, you would apologize to your fellow Christians for that comment, not Atheists.

        To equate the problems caused by the PPACA with Biblical disasters is as ignorant as it gets.

      I was vague in using single quote marks around ‘medical errors’.

      I truly meant they erred in allowing the medical insurance bill to be written as such, to go forth thru Congress, and to stand in a test before the SCOTUS.

      I would never, however, imply abortion is the solution to such errors. ( Leave it to a liberal to construct a Straw Man Argument, to divert from the subject / topic! ) Better schooling, in an impartial school system, is the only true ‘preventative medicine’ for future leaders.

        yogi, I prefer the uneducated ones. Look at what Scott Walker has done in WI. Now, if he could just get the dems in Milwaukee to cooperate and get on board with his plan, they could stop Mil from becoming another Chicago. So long as the dems keep turning a blind eye, well, you know.
