...but she's such a nice person.
Some interesting comments from 16 of America's top physicians
It should be the Republican plan next to the caskets. A typo the newspaper regrets.
How will ObamaCare affect insurance premiums in the private health-care markets? Despite indignant Democratic denials, the near-certainty is that their plan will cause costs to rise across the board. The latest data on this score come from a series of state-level studies from the insurance company WellPoint Inc. At the request of Congressional delegations worried about their constituents—call it a public service—WellPoint mined its own actuarial data to model ObamaCare in the 14 states where it runs Blue Cross plans. The study therefore takes into account market and demographic differences that other industry studies have not, such as the one from the trade group America's Health Insurance Plans, which looked at aggregate national trends. In all of the 14 states WellPoint scrutinized, ObamaCare would drive up premiums for the small businesses and individuals who are most of WellPoint's customers. (Other big insurers, like Aetna, focus on the market among large businesses.) Young and healthy consumers will see the largest increases—their premiums would more than triple in some states—though average middle-class buyers will pay more too. WSJJust getting the "Hope and Change" they voted for.
It was a typo. It was suppose to say: “Don't let this happen to you! Walmart to begin doing Plastic Surgery”
Walmart knows something that many politicians don't seem to realize: government-run healthcare will be a complete travesty. I'd trust Walmart healthcare over Obamacare or Pelosicare any day.
I am amazed that the young will once again carry the burden. They current pay into social security which they may or may not get, they are being saddled with an every increasing national debt, they endure endless war, they are paying for an inflated higher educational system through excess college loan that is not discharged through bankruptcy, they are finding it increasingly difficult to find a job in the globalized market place and now they will have to pay for health insurance they probably don't need. Just amazing. This is our future and we treat them like dirt.
Anon, I agree. What's even more amazing is they vote for politicians who take away their opportunities for better lives. It seems to be brainwashing whipped into mass hysteria. The debate becomes limited and concentrated in a small corner.Palin is viewed as "way out," although "death panels" are a logical result.
