Mississippi's GOP Governor Says No American Lacks Health Care

Blah, Blah, Blah, I am a Republican politician and I make no sense but I act like I do have an intelligent concept........ Blah, Blah, Blah,.......


Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant (R) doesn't like President Barack Obama's health care reform law. It's too expensive and too intrusive, he says.

There is no one who doesn't have health care in America. No one. Now, they may end up going to the emergency room. There are better ways to deal with people that need health care than this massive new program.

2. In the state of Arkansas, those people without health care, cost us $338 Million a year. That's

$116 for every living human in the state.

3. Everyone in America has access to health care.

 

We just need go into any CVS, Walgreens, or even a 7-11. They all have band-aids, cold meds, and other medical stuff. See?
And if you are too sick for those, dieing and getting out of the way is a money saving option too.

Just in case -->
Hopeful, one will be enough.

4. In a sense, he's outlining the problem, though he's being a dumbass about it

I mean, from a fiscal standpoint, that is the problem: we don't deny emergency care, but we don't have a system to pay for it, or for the earlier interventions that would cost less.

5. He sounds like a French Aristocrat in the 1780's.

"There was plenty of food on my table this morning...I don't personally know anyone who is starving..."



Watch Mississippi voters explain why they vote Republican...

We are, after all, talking about MS.

These are the same clowns who complain about others' self-sense of entitlement??

11. I don't know what world they live in...

where they think a trip to the emergency room doesn't cost you anything. It does. You may not be able to pay it, and they'll put a lien on your paycheck, or your property. But it isn't free. They'll dun you for years, contact your employer, do everything they can to get their money.

No, it's not free.

15. And it means that the hospital and doctors charge more to insured customers in order to re-coup

losses from patients that cannot pay. Which in turn mean higher premiums and higher deductibles.

17. These people don't know . . .

that going to the ER is the most expensive way to get health care? And that by the time someone is finally goes there, the problem has often been allowed to fester to the point where it is difficult or impossible to treat? Plus, all the ER is reqired to do is to stabilize the patient. What about follow-up care? This is no way to run a health care system!

12. Really?

I had to go to the emergency room in 2011 and ended up with a $30,000 hospital bill. Thankfully the hospital foundation took care of it, but not everyone is that lucky. I've had black marks on my credit record in the past for medical bills. So by his reasoning, we can go to the emergency room and get seen, but then financially we have to suffer with bad credit. I can't think of a good reason why someone would need credit...a place to live, a job, a car. No, no problem there at all. *shakes head*
