Re: “The Skinny

This will never pass as long as the most hardlined republicans are religiously opposed to any kind of 'socialized medicine' and are convinced beyond any doubt in their mind that the best solution is complete privitization and giving the health care industry as much laissez faire freedom as possible

Re: “The Skinny

McSally has said repeatedly she would want any new health care bill to have the "same outcome" as the ACA; it doesn't do that. She says she wants veterans to have the care they deserve; this bill would throw hundreds of thousands of vets off their coverage (cutting off their access to crucial mental health care). It should be OBVIOUS to her that she can't support this bill, based on her stated principles. So why is she dithering?

Re: “The Skinny

McSally is, once again, not commenting? Doesn't she ever get sick of being so wishy-washy?

Re: “The Skinny

It seems perplexing the Congressional Budget Office could not come up with an annual budget for 6 of the Obama's 8 years ?

Really where's the faith and the trust in that one huh PT Barnum has not shut down. The circus just took another venue look at the clown trying to pile into the car. They say I dont clean up behind elephants. While you're cleaning up get the ASS crap pile over there in all of the inner cities.

We left it for you because the elephant is the only force that can carry the load.

Re: “The Skinny

White Man Made Global Warming is a religion now?

You keep solidifying your ignorance every time you decide to post.

The beauty of it is, you bury yourself deeper with each post. Nobody else even has to join in.
You're a self made man.

Would your savior do this? no! He had sense. You know, that thing which you lack.

Re: “The Skinny

"Would your savior do that?"

I'm betting the first thing would be to abolish abortions.

So you are in favor of our government being run by religion, a religion other than Radical Islam or White Man Made Global Warming?

Re: “The Skinny

And you're so compassionate about being a heartless and racist bully.

Would your savior do that?

I don't think so, phony Christian doucheness.

Re: “The Skinny

Republicans were born without the part of the brain that gives most humans the emotions of compassion and empathy. That's why it's so easy for them to deny the less fortunate any support with financial and health struggles. The only time you will see those slithering Republican conservative reptiles shed a tear from their dead unblinking eyes is when their wealthy bankers and CEO's lose millions of dollars through the markets or from being sent to prison for stealing and scamming unsuspecting investors. Too bad they don't have forked flickering tongues and patterned skin so we could easily identify them and eradicate them before they multiply.

Re: “The Skinny

And the ignoramus shows up.

Remember to ask yourself --- WWJD?

Do true Christians give a crap about compassion?

You Betcha!

And that is exactly why you don't.

Re: “The Skinny

If you are sick and getting care isn't worth you paying for yourself, it sure isn't worth me paying it for you.

And that crap about compassion - anyone who truly can't afford to pay themselves is eligible already for Medicaid.

Re: “The Skinny

When is the last time you petitioned the Mayor and Council and County Supervisors to bring better paying jobs to Tucson?

Wouldn't that be easier than accepting the defeat of poverty? Is everyone now in need of a bailout?

Stop blaming the rich and make a contribution to your own future. Too bad they didn't teach that in college.

Re: “The Skinny

But PP and its supporters *are* using this claim that they provide Healthcare to make a political statement. They claim they have a vital right to exist They want to continue making money by taking the lives of children. They want to continue making money benefiting from the tax money of people who don't agree with the fact that they are primarily in the abortion business.

Representative McNally is an opponent of abortion because she is a supporter of the right to life for The Unborn. I support her and I agree that we need to put Planned Parenthood out of business not let them hide behind the lies that they are necessary to community, that there aren't other options for Community needs in Healthcare. Stand up for the other 28 organizations that are providing the things that the article claims the community needs, without promoting and doing abortions. spend the money saved by defunding Planned Parenthood to support these organizations.

I also support repealing the ACA and I have opposed it since it was first promoted. Our government should not be in the business of providing National Health Care! I do not support the Republicans plan to replace it with any other government Healthcare Beyond Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid. I support the government forcing insurance companies to compete in all 50 states, and to do anything else to bring health insurance cost down short of making government the primary healthcare provider.
