I'd like to see him argue his way out of their jails for oxy possession.

Another good reason is that Sarah Palin went to Canada for medical treatment while younger. Now, if we can't trust Sarah, I ask WHO CAN WE TRUST. It WILL be passed thru. Some modification will be needed, but this is a START.
[As for Rush in C/R - heard prostitutes are cheap there - he'll be in 'Rush-Heaven']

chucks

Duffy, That is pure bull shit and you know it. Rush can afford the best prostitutes in the world (except maybe Peelosi, nobody that earns a living can afford that whore).

Duffman

Ha...so delicately put, chucks. :)

David Tatelman

Ironically, Costa Rica has a great public healthcare system, so Rush will still be able to get his painkillers.

KS

Who gives a flip about Rush ? He can afford to go to Costa Rica, but can you ??

IMO, that is a piss poor reason to want it - an unmitigated disaster. The main issue is that this monstrosity will make you life worse and you can take that to the bank.

Coiler

The monstrosity being Rush? I agree.

KS

You should pass gas. As if anyone else doesn't know, Obama-losi care is the monstrosity.

Anyone who thinks they support this POS clearly doesn't understand the bill.

Coiler

It's going to destroy KS, everyone look out!

Mark C.

what are you jerks going to say when the healthcare bill passes and the world doesn't end?

marc

Th Obamacare giveaway is reparations for the blacks like Rush says. Obama needs to make sure he keeps their votes. Trouble is he's going to lose so many regular people. He already has.

sparky

"regular people" = not black.

sparky

Did anyone see wacko Eric Massa on Glen/Glenda's show today? Beck thought he was going to have all sorts of juicy tidbits of gossip and insider information to cackle over--until Massa started talking about finance reform. The look on Beck's face was hilarious.

Mark C.

Costa Rica has single-payer socialized medicine. What will Rush do?
Where can he go that has a perfect private sector system. Markos suggests Somalia.

KS

"regular people" = not black.

You must be black - eh ?

Coiler

Don't tell him, it's great to keep right wingers in suspense

Bankruptcy will follow in 3-5 years. The US will lose its AAA credit rating and China will make life more difficult. Health care costs will go up for everyone and unemployment will probably not fall much below 10% and there will be a building doctor shortage. Its more of a slow death. Obviously, you don't understand the implications of this bill.

Coiler

Obviously, you root for failure at all costs. I have never met a more disloyal american

KS

You have a wild sense of humor and sarcasm.
Au contrere, you are rooting for failure of our economy (and country - one and the same) at all costs, Curley one. I am rooting for economic recovery, something that will be highly unlikely if Obama-losi care passes. Sorry that you, Sparkles and the rest of you quasi-statists are so gullible to believe the snake oil that Obama and Peelosi are trying to sell you. I want incremental health care reform.

The truth hurts...

Peelosi actually is quoted to have said today- "I want to pass this bill so I can see what is in it" - she doesn't f'ing know - she is an ignorant aristocratic biotch.

Coiler

Your party gave us 8 years of economic failure, Business Week said so. Sit back "keep your hands off my gubmint health care" and shut the fuck up.

KS

Stop whining - its not my party any more. The GOP was wrong for not doing more than they did, but the Democrats could have also initiated something and did not. All of this doesn't make fucking up the system beyond repair like Obama, the narcissist in chief wants to do for his own ego, the public be damned.

Incremental change can be accomplished and most Americans would welcome that - the system is broken, but it will be broken worse if Obama and Peelosi get their way - for the sake of more power.

joanie

Has anyone read more unsupported garbage that this idiot spews anywhere? Including Beck?

At least your short-term memory seems to be improving.

peelosi . . . narcissist in chief? Who writes this stuff? One intellectual argument after another. How do you do it, klueless?


Randi had some interesting takes on Massa today. And Roberts' troubling take on the SOTU. After all, he's equal to the Pres you know. He's an arrogant Aryan. I know which side he'd have been on in '39. Now that's troubling.

you and Randi are wingnuts. Besides that you are playing the race card, you seditious clown - with all due respect. You disrespect the Chief Justice of the US because he told the truth - that says more about who you are...now that's troubling.

Still waiting for you to refute any arguments that I posted - they are too intellectual for you to do anything other than use hyperbole. The president is an incompetent narcissist and a demagogue. The last President was communication challenged and incompetent. The truth hurts - get used to it..

joanie

The part about your short-term memory improving? I'm retracting it.

KS

My short term memory is fine,
Ph(J)oanie. Your truth detector is shot.

March 11 (Bloomberg) -- Republicans said the Senate parliamentarian threw up a hurdle to congressional Democrats’ plans to pass changes to U.S. health-care legislation through a process called reconciliation.

Republicans said guidance they received from the parliamentarian means that President Barack Obama has to sign a Senate health bill into law before the House and Senate can approve changes to it. Some House Democrats, who object to provisions in the Senate measure, wanted Obama to hold off signing the legislation until reconciliation passed.

“The Senate Parliamentarian’s office has informed Senate Republicans that reconciliation instructions require the measure to make changes in law,” Don Stewart, a spokesman for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, said in an e-mail.

U.S. stocks rose on the news, reversing earlier losses. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Managed Health Care Index climbed 1.6 percent, after earlier dropping as much as 0.7 percent.

The guidance from the parliamentarian lengthens the odds for Democrats to pass a bill, said Brian Wright, a Collins Stewart LLC insurance analyst in New York, in an interview.

“It means the House has to take a leap of faith,” he said. “They have to trust that the Senate’s going to be able to pass whatever the reconciliation language is going to be.”

I just hope This Logo doesn't appear on our new National Health Care Plan ID cards. [smile]
