2. Is that Vincent D'Onofrio?

If so, that's ironic because I'm watching "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" right now on Netflix streaming.

You can tell just how exciting my life is!

PEACE!

I know him from "13 Going on 30" and, of course, "The Avengers"!

PEACE!

17. Just don't make him angry

You wouldn't like him when he's angry.

Seriously, though, i heart Ruffalo. A lot of great activism, and him being more famous can only help put a bigger spotlight on them.

3. No, I'm shocked at $112 bill for a toothbrush kit for overnight stay in hospital.

 

All the prices went sky high gradually beginning 2-3 decades ago once people stopped paying for health coverage by the household and started relying on employee provided insurance companies.
Govt sponsored insurance has an even worse track record.
I hope this ends well but it will not.
The latest plan has already doubled in estimated costs from what was first passed by the administration.
This philosophical meandering about war or health care is white noise.

7. Where did you get this idea: "the latest plan has already doubled in estimated cost from...

...what was first passed by the administration."? Do you have some documentation or a source for that claim?


And where did you get this idea "Govt sponsored insurance has an even worse track record."? Medicare and Medicaid and the VA while needing improvement all have much better track records than private insurance.

11. rush and beck, as well as others, are droning on (incorrectly) about a report

That says it will cost a family 20k/year.

Idiots are liars and didn't read the actual report.

But then, their listeners don't fact check...

12. Stop repeating right wing bullshit here

Govt sponsored insurance has an even worse track record.

This is a lie. It works in every country in the world except this one, and Medicare has about 1/5th of the overhead of the insurance leeches. Take your Hate Radio memes over to freeperville and peddle them to the idiots.

14. You are so right!

Remember when Rick Scott committed the biggest medicare fraud against the government with his privatized healthcare co? Oh, wait.

How about Bobby Jindal with his privati-- oh.

Can you provide some numbers for your claim please, because all of the policy studies contradict your claims. See privatized jails for help.

15. It isn't quite that simple,

but it does make for fairly dry reading. The long term transition from family to employer and government plans wasn't done willy-nilly.

16. Maybe white noise to some . . .

. . . but if we had single payer health care you wouldn't be filled for that tooth brush. All we have to do is get our priorities straight, like say less for war and more for care. That sounds like beautiful music to me.
