Just an ordinary man, living in the age of Republicans.

A physician's view on the hypocrisy of American medicine. I must say that I agree with what she says on the subject.

This is the hypocrisy of American healthcare

Interesting indeed. It has a ring of truth, all the more so because you as a health professional have validated it.

The remarks about VA hospitals sounds bad.

But aren't most medical services dispensed by them pretty well indistinguishable from those needed in the general population? One wonders whether investing in general health care for all, also made available to veterans, wouldn't be better overall.

(Yes, I know there are some specialized services that address unique needs of wounded/damaged service persons but guess they are a small portion of the total.)

Dear Amy and Fangz

It is honestly why I refer to you two as so-called Liberals.

You two fail time and again true 'Liberal" precepts:

Think Globally, Act Locally and Decentralization and Local Control and Representative Democracy and Power to The People

Instead you pursue the following consistently:

Big Government Solutions and One Size Fits All 300 Million Americans and Central State Planning from D.C. is what you embrace.

The Cartoon should AWAKEN YOU

The problem with the cartoon, is that the fat white guy protecting Profits, is a Progressive Democrat, who sided with big corporate Pharma and big corporate Insurance, wrote up the ACA, voted it into existence, and Obama signed it all into law. ALL WITHOUT ONE GOP VOTE IN THE HOUSE OR SENATE. Please just stop being so DUMB. It is boring...

Now you are just being silly.

Democrats met time after time with Republicans, yielded to nonnegotiable demands Republicans made to "protect" the insurance companies, and finally settled on a plan with features that, to many of us, need improvement.

Then, after insisting on all those awful provisions, the Republicans pulled the rug out and voted against it. They are hypocritical and untrustworthy in the extreme.

The Republicans put forward their own bills in the house and senate, alternatives that went no where.
They were ABSOLUTELY shut out of the process, every amendment getting nowhere and no vote.

LIE TO YOURSELF Amy. You are buying a fiction... The truth is right in front of you Amy. My goodness.

Like in Massachusettes, NOT A WITH THE ACA, this above is how it should be done. More power, and taxes, to them....

Open up the floodgates as folks FLEE NEW YORK, and move to TN, TX, SC etc.
