    Look up Romney in the dictionairy:

    ROMNEY: a family of rich republicans who have no experience to be a politician.

    "Show Me" the statistics of people who die from lack of health insurance. Most hospitals will take them with or without insurance. I, as a taxpayer will pay for them.

      With no health insurance you don't get any preventative care. No cancer screenings, chronic conditions are left long term with no care, and going to the er without insurance is going to bankruptcy you easy. What if you, like me, were born with a heart condition and need medication for the rest of your life? What are you supposed to do without health insurance... Answer is you are fucked and end up in the er in an emergency situation that all could gave been avoided with proper ongoing care.

    It's just common sense people die from lack of health insurance.
    People go to doctors for routine checkups to make sure everything is working okay.
    Just like we take automobiles in for routine maintenance to make sure they run smoothly.

    This is a silly statement from a person who obviously never had to deal with lack of insurance....or pretty much anything.

    I don't have health insurance , however I can go to the best hospitals in any European country including the U.K and get treatment or prescription drugs for free
    .
    I went several times to the hospital no one ever asked me for my wallet or if I had insurance , I never seen a medical bill in my life
    .
    I could have health insurance however most people in here see it as a waste of money when they can get it for free

    He was nicknamed 'Seamus' by fellow Governors because of his ability to emotionally detach himself from an issue he's looking to solve; Seamus was the dog in a 'air tight' kennel on the roof of the car in 1983 family trip. Goodtimes

    I live in a country whose batshit crazy right wingers are still to the left even of Obama, and if you were to ask our population about America's health system our attitude to you is this: Take personal responsibility, but not in the way your cunthole politicians say.
    Take personal responsibility by actually making change happen. Most of the world has or wants universal healthcare, the US system really is unique and belongs totally to big business. You as a people need to take responsibility.

    that president would be better for the job because they know what it is like to be president they are not groomed to look handsome or have people write their speeches for them. hopefully this will happen one day and it would be better if they were a 3rd party

    yer look at Ryan he showed up a restaurant uninvited and then started to clean one tray that was already cleaned while posing for pictures lucky enough someone video taped him on a phone to prove he did not do anything. this is why the moment Obama wins i'm going to look up these guys and laugh at their shocked faces.
    anyway America needs a president who actually went through what everyone goes through. poor health,learning disabilities, discrimination or poverty

  • Jed Holdbrook
    Jed Holdbrook 4 years ago

    What I really don't understand, is why so many of you Americans don't like the idea of a national health service. Do the rich among you (e.g Romney) care so little about your fellow man that you would happily see them go through life unable to receive even some of the more simple medical treatments, because you can pay for private health care?

    Also some people knocking off Obama, saying he hasn't done a lot of what he said he would.
    There's not enough time/too much opposition for him to do so.

  • Birdmachine
    Birdmachine 4 years ago

    What's the difference with the insane wait times that Obamacare would create? What about being denied treatment because it's too expensive for the government to pay for? What about medicine and supplies being spread thin?

    Sounds like you just don't get it.

    Can anyone believe how dumb white women are ,funny thing though they fell for Mitt Romney talking about Abortion ,while Ryan and the others are talking about having them arrested if they try to kill thier baby ,regaurdless if they were rapped or not ,how dumb are these white women ,I thought they were supposed to be smart and tough ,well I see dumb ass all them ,and if Romney does get to be our president ,and your daughter kills her baby and get arrested for it ,then she should blame you for it

    I think Romney makes the cynical calculation that people who know he's lying will overlook it and that people who don't realize he's lying will be fooled and that's a net win for him.

    It will continue until people have the courage of their convictions to vote against him for lying to us.

    Bipolar disorder is one of the most pernicious, difficult to deal with, and life destroying illnesses on the face of the planet. Have you checked into Social Security and Medicaid? Might be worth it for you. I wish you luck and hope you are able to get the assistance that you should be able to. Good travels.

  • Deez Nuts
    Deez Nuts 4 years ago

    Are you seriously arguing that the uninsured don't see doctors because they are "Afraid" rather than the simple act that THEY CAN'T AFFORD INANSELY EXPENSIVE MEDICAL PROCEDURES OUT OF POCKET?!

  • Phalinex
    Phalinex 4 years ago

    Democrats aren't satisfied with a system that allows Americans to die for lack of access to medical care. This is and will remain a civilized society as long as Democrats manage the government. Republicans are too self absorbed to support a society. All they can comprehend is taking from society then running back to their cave to protect their find. Move to Africa if you want to live like an animal.

Be careful what you wish for others, you could get your wishes back for yourself. When you're laying in your bed afraid to see a doctor for fear of the cost, it will be too late. Your republican animals will turn away and let you die.

    Arguing semantics there somewhat, no? It's not the 'cause' of the deaths in question, but it's the reason the deaths were not prevented.

    So what? Your parent(s) didn't have a profit motive raising you in your family; families are a collectivist institution in which food, shelter, clothing and extras are shared relatively equally. You got what you needed just for being alive, just for being in that family. Not all activities need a profit motive, to state the OBVIOUS.

    Can Romney imagine the descent from struggling middle class to abject poverty as caused by a typical health crisis?

    Didn't think so.

    I'm a stroke and cancer survivor. I KNOW what it's like.

    I'm now old enough for Medicare, & I'm slowwwwly catching up with my medical debt.. And I'm pleased to know I'm "grandfathered in" so Mitt won't be monkeying with my coverage.

    But I wouldnt wish what happened to me ten years ago to happen to anyone. I'm glad Pres Obama has taken steps to prevent it.

    Nobody dies from lack of health insurance? Tell that to people who've lost mentally ill (depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenic) family members to suicide because they couldn't pay for necessary medications. I'm bipolar, uninsured & unmedicated, extremely stressed from not getting hired by anyone (which only exacerbates my condition), and fight a raging depression & paranoia that makes me want to commit suicide. Every day is a horrible struggle for people like me to keep living in hell.

    Death panels are death panels. What difference does it make if it belongs to an insurance company or the the government? The end result is exactly the same.

  • funkrafty

    Republican philosophy actually makes sense from an evolution/survival of the fittest point of view - if you are strong and rich pay us and we'll pamper you with wellness visits, if you are poor or weak you need to die instead of burdening the earth.

  • l0gically

    > Nobody has died from lack of health insurance.

    Flat out ignorance. The day that "lack of health insurance" becomes a medical condition sanctioned by the AMA, you can look for it being listed by coroners as the cause of death. Surely you can see the absurdity.

    > which is the assignments of the rights to life and liberty to GuvCorp.

    As opposed to...InsuranceCorp?

  • l0gically

    Maybe another question that clown can answer is why so many people wind up in bankruptcy because of medically-related costs they can't afford.

    Rmoney is going to have a very hard time explaining how a 24 year-old man went into the emergency room for a tooth ache, and being forced to choose between some pain killer, and an antibiotic, he chose the pain killer (based on what he could pay for). He died not long after because the pain was caused by an infection that spread to his brain and killed him.

    Mitt Romney has no idea of the misery of poor Americans. Further he has no empathy for the middle class whose life styles continues to be eroded by frauds and opportunists like himself. Instead, like the rest of Republicans, he is the real purveyor of class warfare. He pits Americans against each other fighting for the crumbs the elite deign to give us. Disgraceful!

    Thousands of people die every year for lack of health care insurance. Emergency rooms only treat emergencies. Then the bill collectors follow right behind. Many people don't seek care because they don't want to loose everything they have, and die on the street, as republicans advocate.

    Also, going to the emergency room when you are about to die is much more expensive than catching whatever it is before it gets very bad since then it is easier to treat.

    1, since obama, we are bombing and intervening with more nations in the middle east than bush.
    2, there has been more than twice as much raids against medical marijuana dispensaries while obama has been in office than bush.
