YOU ALL WILL BE paying to get the swelling in me leg solved"


Swelling in the legs? Cardio-vascular. Bad circulation. It's from pot-smoking. Your heart can't handle the carbon monoxide anymore. Quit, and it'll go away.

I know, I know...the whole "growing up/being a man" issue again. Oh well.

Apogee, what i am is a stubborn business man doing all he can to keep the dream alive,, just like the MANY that have gone before me, in just about any industry you can name. Im in hopes somehow the economy actually does turn so that i once again can afford a nice luxury of health insurance which i had once upon a time. Ive been paying and will continue to pay on my own medical bills without the aid of a taxpayer dime. That will continue post aca implementation. So putting that burden on me at the same time as paying off previous bills is a kick in the ass. Making all my customers have to pay more for less is a double kick in the azz. The small companys of nevada will NOT HAVE coverage for their employees in the VERY short future. Way cheaper for them to pay the penalty's..

Nope. At some point (especially after the symptoms you just described) a hospital stay will be needed - that, or the coroner's wagon. Hospital stays average $4k a day, and your costs will undoubtedly be more than that, again because of what you just described. You'll be at least $50k in the hole within a few years, guaranteed, w/o insurance. Or dead. And no, no one here believes you could come up with 5 grand, let alone 50, in this lifetime.

ObamaCare was passed EXACTLY because of people like you. Because you people are too stupid to take care of yourselves, and too broke to afford insurance w/o gov't help. Actual adults have to do it for you.

Meaning they're now eligible for Medicaid, because of the ACA.

Provided, of course, the governor isn't trying to play politics with the Medicaid money.

http://knowmore.washingtonpost.com/2013/11/16/a-fox-news-anchor-just-endorsed-something-youd-never-expect/

A basic income is the best policy idea you’ve never heard of. The idea is simple: instead of, or in addition to, the panoply of government transfer programs currently in place, we just give everyone in the country a set amount of money per year, no strings attached. The benefit could phase out as one’s income rises (this variant is known as a “guaranteed minimum income”) or could just be granted unconditionally: you get $10,000 a year, I get $10,000 a year, the poorest of the poor get $10,000 a year, Bill Gates gets $10,000, etc.

The idea has an impressive intellectual lineage. Famed libertarian economist Milton Friedman advocated a guaranteed minimum income (implemented through a scheme known as a “negative income tax”), as did Martin Luther King Jr. Richard Nixon and his then-aide and future Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan tried to pass one in the early 1970s, and his 1972 Democratic opponent George McGovern backed one too. Many economists including Nobelist James Tobin and John Kenneth Galbraith signed a 1968 petition endorsing the idea.

Today, the idea’s endorsed by a motley crew of all ideological stripes. Leftists like Erik Olin Wright, Peter Frase, Carole Pateman, Antonio Negri, and Michael Hardt have backed the idea, as has the Green Party; the plan’s most influential advocate, Philippe van Parijs, has even defended the idea as a “capitalist road to communism.” But many libertarians, including The Bell Curve author Charles Murray and Guy Sorman, like the idea as a way to replace the welfare state. In fact, the FairTax plan — which would replace most federal taxes with a sales tax and is backed by 73 members of the house and 8 members of the Senate (all Republicans) — includes a small basic income. In between, a variety of mainstream left-of-center economists including Robert Solow, Jonathan Gruber and Emmanuel Saez like the idea too.

Now it appears to have the support of ultra-conservative Fox News host Stuart Varney. Varney — who once berated economist Robert Frank, another basic income fan, for daring to suggest that peoples’ economic success might be influenced by luck — discussed a Swiss proposal for a basic income with Mercatus Institute scholar and frequent National Review/Reason contributor Veronique de Rugy, and both expressed surprising degrees of sympathy for the plan. Watch above!

theyre joined at the crotch to the as#@&%es running the religious establishments

youve heard their thought experiment...

" europeans have a good social net, but their churches are empty... ergo, we need to destroy the social net... so people are suffering and desperate again SO they will come back to church to beg and plead for god to help them"


This is true!
Europeans with their better Safety Net have a lower Religioisty.
Once you take out the uncertainty of being able to just survive, you have a more civilized society that don't pit sides against each other.
