Sadly, in america these days, most people watch whatever or listen to whatever because it conforms to a political opinion they already have. These shows aren’t changing much of anything.
The 60 vote cloture rule is a good check on extremism. It can’t be used for budget reconciliation because you need a budget. But Obamacare is not budget reconciliation. Even though you have the stronger team and the lead, you can’t change rules in mid-game and keep the fans. Let’s hope the Dems realize that or if they don’t, we may not need to worry about 60 Dem votes for too long.
Recently, the cable companies did a survey. The cable outlets are scared; they’re trying to hold onto people because it’s becoming more common to watch tv on the internet through things like Hulu, or (if the cable company’s lucky), on TiVo. Cable costs money; Hulu is free, so viewers –younger viewers– are cutting the cord to TV –either regular, cable or satellite.
Either Obama is right and he can truly cut 0 billion of waste, fraud and abuse out of the Medicare budget or Medicare dependent seniors must die when 0 billion is cut from muscle and bone because there really wasn’t that much fat.
People like me die every day because we don’t want to burden our families with financial destitution. People like me die every day because we live in a country that cares more about its politics than its people. If we could step back from the politics and recognize that the health of a nation is determined by the people who live in our country, we might care more about the people who are dying at the hands of greedy pharmaceutical and insurance companies. We might back the reformers of health care. Sick citizens do not make for healthy countries.
This time please do not be fooled by the insurance companies. They fooled the American people into being against the Clinton health care reform plan in the ’90s and they plan on doing the same today to derail Obama’s plan.
Because this pill is not considered a contraceptive most insurers have placed it in a special therapeutic class of its own. Most major insurers do cover the cost of the pill and its administration.
I don’t believe the Government is going to do anything. President Obama or whoever is sitting up there is not going to lift a finger to make these people leave. They say it is impossible to know where all of the illegals are, yet HR Block and other tax offices, handle thousands of ITIN’s each year. An ITIN is an identifying process for illegals that lets them work, file taxes and get a refund back. We sent those checks to local addresses, that are a part of a permanent record. We can’t find them? The irs did!
