This is about the time where Sketch will start whining on another thread that nobody will have a civil discussion with him.

Sorry sketch, you're right.... I should not have read anything into the innocent questions you posed... I had mistakenly thought I understood where your questions were going based on your past pointless posts and posted up a "straw man" so that I could point out it's pointlessness...


How many were previously uninsured?

Four million? Five million? One tenth of the 45 million Americans who were (supposedly) uninsured in 2008?

    Good questions. Simple questions. Still pointless questions. But to be sure, let me see if I have this correct....

You wanted to know... of the number of American's currently being reported as covered by Obamacare, how many were previously uninsured?

Then, you guess (guess or state) some numbers... and then post up a number of (supposedly) uninsured Americans from 2008 (you wrote supposedly as if you don't believe that there are possibly be 45 million uninsured... (but you pose these numbers as questions... those are question marks after each statement... almost like a "huh, huh... huh?" kind of child/bully/aggressor type movie line....

So.. how was that supposed to be taken again?


I'm reminded that sometimes little bitches ask supertopo forum for answers to stupid questions instead of looking the sh#t up themselves.

Like Norton said, if one person was helped with Obamacare then its worth it, unless that was not the point you were making with your 4 questions.

Next you'll mention your feelings and sidetrack the discussion that way...

See...? I'm not the only one who is onto this shallow cunt's MO.

Literally nobody is sweeping the issue of uninsured Americans under the rug, Captain Strawman. Your question is easily answerable by taking 5 minutes to google it, so please stop acting dumb.

Um... yeah... okay.

I asked about it and Norton took the fast train to bitchiville.

"how many Americans who were uninsured a year ago, now have insurance?"...



Quite a few and now they can now rest a little easier...


Helping people isn't really a bad thing...

You guys remind me of this.

Republicans are people who, if you were drowning 50 feet from shore, would throw you a 25-foot rope and tell you to swim the other 25 feet because it would be good for your character. Democrats would throw you a hundred-foot rope and then walk away looking for other good deeds to do.

Regardless of political affiliation, either "Side" if they gave a fuk would do what they could to help...

I doubt either "Side" would be going...

"Let's find out who they voted for before we save them"...

Sketch, your AIDS definition is another great example of the quality you bring to this place!

Just like your characterization of Dr. F's supposed pedophilia....

Yep, you are a ST model of quality content, through & through!

explain exactly why that matters...

if even ONE person now has health insurance who could not get it before, it "matters"

only a complete ASS of a man would oppose that

Norton, I agree with your point that if the ACA helped one person, it did a good thing. It does not follow, however, that if the ACA helped one person, the ACA was, itself, a good thing. In particular, I think you know quantity matters because the ACA costs money, and that money has other uses that might help the intended beneficiaries more than the ACA.

We have a tendency to compare outcomes either with perfection or with complete imperfection. We should be comparing outcomes under one option with outcomes under the other possible options. The ACA may be the best outcome available, although I seriously doubt that because it failed to address what I see as the greatest problem in American health care payment, namely the substitution of tort law for contract law and the subsequent dilution of the doctor-patient relationship. In any case, the way the ACA came about -- with a complete banishment of any Republican input --made a suboptimal result exceedingly likely.

Oh, brother, John. Stop with the victim talk, already.

Republicans brought nothing to the table, dragged their feet & sabotaged everything, then called that being 'shut out'. Wah, wah, wah.

The American people, not the Republicans, were the victims, Apogee. Nancy Pelosi made it clear that she would accept no Republican suggestions, because she needed no Republican votes. "Elections have consequences," was originally her mantra. It's funny how that changed as soon as the Democrats lost their majority in the House, and their allegedly filibuster-proof majority in the Senate. Now it's "They won't work with us," meaning they won't unconditionally surrender.

John, you gotta remind me of the cornucopia of Republican ideas & options that they brought to the table. The ones that polled strongly, especially.

LOL...it was a figgin' Heritage Foundation idea, advocated by your man Mitt Romney.

It might be one of the few things Republicans were RIGHT about.

It's weird....within the last few months I had a medical issue that required several doctor appointments & testing procedures....

I had great experiences with each of them, pretty damn timely, and relatively affordable.

I suppose if you never had medical insurance, and were basically sucking on the public teat, and now you actually have to take responsibility for yourself, then yeah...this ACA thing would be pretty annoying.

Sketch doesn't support or oppsose anything. He's just asking questions, man.

Funny how so many of my questions get folks all riled up.

They just start lobbing insults and saying I said stuff I didn't... and getting pissed off about the stuff they say I said, even though it's made up.

And of course, it brings out all my faithful followers. Some of them seem to keep track of my every word. You know... posts I deleted or edited. They must really care.

It's all very amusing.

BTW Anyone heard from Dr. F.? He left in a snit, about a week ago. He's such a jovial sort. Really picks this place up. Hope he's alright.
