Thread: Reid say's to "Get over it....

And what does this really have to do with anything?
Here's a quote from one of the contributors of information concerning this article.
"I think it is silly to compare a very small "country" like Sweden in any meaningful way to larger countries. For example, I'm sure we can cherry-pick a State in the US (of similar population) that exceeds every comparative metric to Sweden (quality of life, "green-ishness", governance/corruption, debt, wealth, racial relations... Lets get real Swedish Wire!""The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers it can bribe the public with the public's own money.

Heard an interview with a republican congressman and he said they are willing to do exactly what I posted earlier in this thread -- refuse funding. Then when they refuse to fund it and Reid starts pissing and moaning, we can tell him, "Get over it Reid, your not getting funding."

Doctors will do what any business would do if they face loss of revenue, they increase their fee.
The bigger problem with Medicare and medicaid is how they pay Medical schools. Here is an excert of whats happening here
Medicare offers two streams of revenue to medical schools and teaching hospitals. One supports graduate medical education and is intended to cover a portion of faculty and residents' salaries. The other pays schools and hospitals when faculty doctors care for patients or when they personally supervise residents who do.
That setup makes Medicare vulnerable to "double dipping," or being billed twice for the same service, according to Congress' watchdog agency, the U.S.
Here's a link to the whole story

John Boehner (sp) said he would hold the vote to repeal Obamacare because he believes the people voted him and his party into office to do so...
I like the idea of elected officials doing exactly as the voters want them to do... not what special interests want.
IMO what is significant about Ried poo-poohing about the vote to repeal Obamacare is he will be on record as not doing as the American public wants... That, IMO, WILL come back to haunt Mr Ried.
Lets pile up the record with Dems ignoring the will of the people... and see what happens in 2012...
Oh, and the idea of stalling funding for Obamacare... Remember that ALL bills of appropriations (government spending) MUST originate in the house. If Mr Obama tries to side-step this, he is acting in error of the Constitution... that would not be wise in this political climate IMO.GA-HVAC-Tech
