I don't want anyone dead Emelye. I just don't believe insurance should pay for " gender re-assignment".

Why, Seadog? Do you know better than the doctors and scientists who have listed it as a legitimate and sometimes necessary and life saving procedure? Do you really think trans people should live miserable and torturous lives with an early death as a very possible result?

What is it about trans people that you hate so much to wish that for them? How is it that you despise them so much that you would willingly withhold life saving medical treatments? What in the Deity's name has any trans person done to you to make you wish all of them were dead or dying?

"Do you think they should cut certain conditions out? Which ones"

Gender re-assignment would be a good start.

The way healthcare was going before the ACA was passed was in the direction of rewarding upper class elites while putting middle, working and poor classes lives in danger through poor and unavailable care. That is NOT an acceptable alternative.

Seadog, I expect Obamacare to cover all legitimate and medically accepted therapies for recognized conditions. Do you think they should cut certain conditions out? Which ones?

So monkey, after I point out inconsistencies of the President's rhetoric, broken promises made by him, the lack of verification of the massive amount of taxpayers taxpayer in Obamacare, and the "look out below" warnings of members in his own party, all you have is as a comback aginst is: Rev. Mel is spouting off. Really weak don't you think? Isn't it immoral to break promises, promote the murder of unborn children with chemicals and other inhumane means, to steal from others even it is legal? There is more to it than insinuating I'm only referring to his perverting the definition of marriage.

I'm surprised at the level of the personal attacks that are posted in this forum. An individual presents a position and is not afraid to sign his name to it, yet the responses are anonymous. What's wrong with delaying the implementation of this law for another year - if it can delayed for bigger businesses and many in the federal government, it should be delayed for ALL.

"Ed Hill is the president of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) union. He is also someone who wishes that conservatives had successfully defeated ObamaCare. Well, that’s his opinion today. Around the 2009-2010 time frame, when ObamaCare was still being debated in Congress and in the media, Mr. Hill and his union buddies were big supporters of the President’s health care plan. The reason that they were supporters of his health care plan is for one unbelievably stupid reason: they actually believed the promises that President Obama made about it".

Source after source will tell you - the reason why rural hospitals are in trouble has to do with Medicare cuts, NOT the ACA. So the facts of the matter are that no matter who is making the cuts, they would be in trouble. Whether the ACA's cuts or the cuts GOP politicians want to make.

What is hilariously ironic is I'm 100% sure FedUp, Seadog, 50'sIQ4ever, etc. are ALL in favor of cutting medicare. So they are in favor of hospitals being shut.

Wonderful ain't it? Facts are nice; I would suggest you shy away from news talk pundits.

Funny bunny how guys like "you know who" come up with all sorts of scripture trying to make a point but failing. As with the lost; out of character, out of context, foolish and inappropriate. Here's one for ya "professing themselves to be wise they became FOOLS". (Romans chapter 1; you might consider the whole chapter. It describes the condition of the pagans in our world today)

..."than they’d been promised when they signed on to the Affordable Care Act. The law required all states to expand their Medicaid programs to cover uninsured citizens who make too little to buy plans under Obamacare. But the Supreme Court ruled last year that states could opt out. Nearly half have chosen to do so, as Republican governors or GOP-led state legislatures have opposed the increased Medicaid spending."

"Sequestration has nothing to do with it. "

htt p://**** businessweek****/articles/2013-07-18/in-obamacare-buildup-hospitals-face-a-self-inflic ted-wound

"When the Obama administration was selling the benefits of the Affordable Care Act in 2010, the hospital industry agreed to accept a $155 billion decrease in Medicare payments over a decade. The administration assured hospital executives that patients newly covered under the health-care law would make up for much of the loss. Because of the ongoing squabbles between President Obama and Republicans in Congress over the U.S. budget, that hasn’t happened.

The automatic federal spending cuts known as sequestration have sliced an additional 2 percent from Medicare reimbursement payments to hospitals this year. Beginning next year, many hospitals will also collect less money from Medicaid, the federal program that provides coverage for the poor,

irony- the future structure of the healthcare system "IS" Obamacare and the law's payment structure is what will result in closing many of the smaller, rural hospitals and that is the conclusion arrived at by several think tank studies. Sequestration has nothing to do with it. Obama's $100 million family vacation to Africa would have more to do with hospital closings than sequestration. Medicaid is rapidly becoming a non-option because the Dems expanded eligibility AGAIN and states don't have the money. I don't know how you can be so wrong so much of the time but you are good at it.

Reverend Mel is actually the worst kind of false prophet because he is one who speaks out one side of his mouth rather than one who conspicuously distorts reality.

Boy, you libs have a short memory. The Republicans WERE SHUT OUT of all conversations regarding the ACA. This is a 100% bought and paid for law and the Dems own it. Lock, stock, and exemptions.
