Thanks to the Affordable Health Care Act


The Palin women will really benefit from this, especially #2, #4, and #5.

  1. Thanks to it my employer jacked our insurance rates and I am not alone. There may be pros, but there are more cons, many of which are hidden from the average joe who doesn't understand the writing. And "deathpanels" are real within it and not something Sarah Palin invented first.

    Look at Canada and its very real and detrimental issues with health care. People due because they can't get treated. Fact.

    1. You have no employer because you're not mentally competent to hold down a job, Krusty. Fact.

      It's a pity there are no death panels for leeches.

    4. ¨Death panels¨ were real. Insurance company clerks once decided which tests and procedures by a physician would be permitted by the insurance company. IOW, high school graduates were literally practicing medicine without a license.

      Canada? What about Norway, New Zealand, Japan, United Kingdom, Kuwait, Sweden, Bahrain, Brunei, Netherlands, United Arab Emirates, Finland, Slovenia, Denmark, France, Australia, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Cypress, Spain, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Israel?

      Some less developed nations like Cuba have universal health care.

      According to the World Health Organization, the US ranks 37th in health care quality. Cuba, a less developed nation ranks 39th.

      More to consider:
      It is hard to ignore that in 2006, the United States was number 1 in terms of health care spending per capita but ranked 39th for infant mortality, 43rd for adult female mortality, 42nd for adult male mortality, and 36th for life expectancy.

      Why did we spend so much to get so little?

    5. My health insurance premiums have been jacked up every year for the last 20 years and benefits have been reduced. If you try to tell me yours haven't, you haven't been paying attention or you are lying.

      My Canadian friends love their health insurance, especially the ones who once lived in the US.

      Insurance companies have been running death panels forever, deciding who can get treatment for life threatening conditions and who isn't worth it.

      Prove to me that the ACA has death panels built in...I'm waiting. What's that? Crickets!

    6. You have no employer and know nothing about how health care works in Canada.

      And, your Palin obsession has made you virtually unemployable since any potential employer or client has only to google your name...

  2. Ok troll, please tell me how people in Canada 'due' because they can't get treated. I actually have Canadian friends, and my best friend lived in Canada for most of her childhood before moving back to the US. My friends come from all across Canada and they all sing praises to its health care system. However people DO die in the US from lack of health and dental care. People who work hard to support themselves and their families. Do you want to see what being uninsured looks like, at least in the LA area? There a free health clinic drew THOUSANDS of people who, while working, could not afford even the most basic of health and dental care. Don't believe me? Check out the video of the event:

    And btw my working female friends are ecstatic over the new health care provisions! Oh, and please tell me more about these 'death panels' you know so much about. Are they any worse than health insurance companies cutting off care to dying children in need, or denying care to those that are sick, ill and in pain? Would these death panels be something akin to what killed the President's mother when she was in the hospital with cancer and the President couldn't get her treatment covered?

  3. Insured and loving the ACA, sorry troll. Our rates went DOWN due to this because people were not getting treated for expensive diseases but for preventative care which is CHEAPER.
    What you need to do, if indeed you are a real person, is to change your carrier and vote with your wallet.

  4. Loving the ACA as well. It should be renamed "Obamacare" and man, am I glad Obama cares!

    My sister is Canadian, and receives excellent care. My daughter received an extra year of coverage. The preventative care provisions are the best, especially for my little granddaughter.

    As for "death panels," what a crock of poo!!! My 88-year-old cranky mother would be the first in line for those panels, but she continues to receive the same excellent care she has had her entire life.

    So, Dope-On-A-Rope, EPIC FAIL AGAIN!!!
