  1. It's the only thing that matters to any politician in DC.
  2. When I saw this thread title I thought for sure Mann Coulter had made that remark about McCain.
  3. Trumph seems to use the word 'unfair' fairly often. The press, now Sessions. What a snowflake.
  4. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/jun/26/koch-network-piggy-banks-closed-republicans-healthcare-tax-reform 'For the people, by the people'.
  5. Cool! Yet another reason to sell them arms, protect their oil exports, and turn a blind eye to their funding of terrorism.
  6. Yes, yes it is.
  7. Glove slap, shut your big yap Glove slap, I don't take crap...
  8. Why is nobody talking about the grossly inflated costs of healthcare?
  9. Thanks, The partisan bickering was getting to me, especially leading up to the election. I don't miss it much, but I have lurked on here from time to time.
  10. You see? This statement is misleading. The patient would have been charged $78,000. What it actually costs is a much different number. What's McCain (or anyone) going to do? Not pay for the life-saving procedure? Compare prices with the one or two other providers who can do it?
  11. Listen to what he says about the cost of healthcare as a percent of GDP, and how that compares to the corporate tax rate. Essentially, the cost of healthcare is the biggest burden on employers, not taxes. YET NO ONE, BUT NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT THE FOREVER RISING COST OF CARE. ALL OF THE TALK IS ABOUT RISING PREMIUMS AND OBAMACARE. Obamacare has nothing to do with the rising premiums, it is the cost of the care which has far outpaced inflation since the 80s. . It keeps going up because the healthcare industry can charge whatever it wants for their services. What is a parent (or anybody) to do? Not pay for the medication / treatment / procedure that will keep their child / loved one / themselves healthy?
  12. Nailed it. Affordable healthcare for me, but not for thee.
  13. Or how much short-term disability he'll have to use at 60% of his normal salary....
  14. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/jul/16/john-mccain-blood-clot-surgery-delays-healthcare-reform-vote I wonder what his out-of-pocket expenses are going to be for this.
  15. They sure have found a fiddle to play, that's for sure.
