I'm sure a lot of you have seen this picture.
Her name was Stephanie Sautter.
She died peacefully this morning.
The health care crisis in a nutshell.

Pitt apparently thinks she is a 99% goddess for some reason.May the FORCE be with you!

I remember her post when it was first made. Well, socialized medicine (Obamacare) will do that.
Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.

Hey, Trustfund Baby, haven't your DC DemonRat masters been floating the "It's really okay if we still have up to 20% uninsured even with Obamacare" meme for the past week? Wouldn't that mean that for everyone covered under ACA who wasn't before, there'll be someone who was covered before, but isn't now? Are you really as clueless a putz as you sound?

When my sister was diagnosed with cancer last year, it came in time for her being laid off. Her lay off came at no fault of her own. She worked hard and her liberal bosses didn't care. They wanted certain people to make themselves look good. Her church was really nice in that they paid for her cobra. Their logic was that it would be too disastrous to wait on Medicaid. She got her surgery and the cancer was removed. No chemo treatments necessary.
The logic behind not having reform is that this person supposedly did something to deserve the bad health or the financial struggle. It may be true. It may not be true. Here's what I am sure of. I think this excuse is a cop out to not feel guilty about not wanting reform. If we deny the innocent person in there, then we don't have to feel guilty. I hope the lady in the picture RIP.In memory of Ahmed Merabet, Rafael Ramos, and Wenjian Liu.

Obamacare is not about healthcare, it is the largest welfare wealth redistribution program the world has ever seen, it is a power grab of enormous proportions and will signal the end of our freedoms.
if this is not stopped you will realize all this after it is to late Lanie, this has been explained to you ad nauseam by Ody and many others on the board but you refuse to wrap your mind around it and study it, you can really be a waste of time when you want to be.The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

Fast forward to yesterday. She was talking about going to Republican events. I guess she heard my stifled gasp. Yes, she is now a Republican. I asked her why---she said Obama. She isn't one of the limosine libs. Her dad worked in the GM plant that used to be in St Louis. He was a union guy. Her mom was very involved in Dem politics.
She told me that she had a health issue that wasn't life treatening, but chronic. Her doc told her that it was a good thing that she had it treated this year and got the necessary medical device to make her problem more tolerable. He said that they had gotten the word that what had been approved for her would not be available next year.
Her physician said treatment for anything chronic would be greatly curtalled next year, in fact virtually stopped by Medicare. That includes arthritis and many other chronic ailments.
Sarah Palin wasn't that far off. That's why she was so demonized. She was telling the truth about what will be coming down on all of us.
Lanie, you can pick out any individual case. I'm so glad that your sister's church was so decent and so practical to pay for her COBRA. SR and I know how expensive it can be, as he had to go on COBRA after his stroke.
But what we have to focus on is the great harm coming down on millions of people.

McCain's idea was to give everybody five thousand dollars. Be honest Rock, if any Democrat suggested what he did, what would you conservatives had said about that?
Did you know that Obamacare isn't even Obama's idea? It wasn't even Pelosi's idea. It was Richard Nixon's idea. He wasn't the only Republican either. It's like when a Republican proposes something, it's okay. If a Democrat proposes something, it's Socialism. Why wasn't Bush denounced as a socialist for his Medicare reform or his other ideas that costed so much money? It's because he had an R at the end of his name on the ballot. You know it's true. Had Obama came up with Bush'd ideas, it would have been communism.
The reason I let you all "explain" things to me with no argument back is because I'm afraid of the backlash if I present an actual case. That changes now.In memory of Ahmed Merabet, Rafael Ramos, and Wenjian Liu.

Nice try. Bush's Medicare reform has been under budget. It has saved money. People on Medicare had health insurance but not drug coverage, did that make sense to you? They actually now pay extra for the Part D drug coverage, it's not free.
You have a common habit of not comparing apples to apples. I might know a little bit about insurance companies and insurance claims as I process a few hundred of them daily.
One more question....how dare Obama put his name on Nixon's plan?
If you insist on trying to continue to bash the Republicans maybe you would be better off just posting at DU, at least you could respond directly to the OP there and show your agreement.

Oh and the bolded IS an idea in and of it's own.
EVERY time there is a REAL effort to bring down the cost of healthcare (tort reform letting people have more choice in their providers bringing medicare/medicaid fraud under control) you bleeding heart ass clowns on the left go into full scare tactic mode and lie to peoiple telling them "Republicans want you do die."
Did you know that Obamacare isn't even Obama's idea? It wasn't even Pelosi's idea. It was Richard Nixon's idea.
The Health Maintenance Organization Act of 1973 (Pub. L. 93-222 codified as 42 U.S.C. §300e) is a United States statute enacted on December 29, 1973. The Health Maintenance Organization Act is informally known as the federal HMO Act is a federal law that provides for a trial federal program to promote and encourage the development of HMOs. The federal HMO Act amended the Public Health Service Act, which Congress passed in 1944. The principal sponsor of the federal HMO Act was Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (MA).
Care to take a guess at what the bolded has in commoon?

Just because there is a problem doesn't mean that you can throw any old solution at it. Obamacare was no solution; in fact, it exacerbates the problems for the average person. The only solution it provides is to a handful of crony insurance companies; it keeps them profitable and ensconced as the institutional backbone of healthcare. It also allows the NSA, law enforcement, and every government agency in Washington to have access to personal health records and use them against people in various ways. But a solution to healthcare? It's actually made health care far less accessible. Infantile partisan whining ("Well I don't see Republicans solving anything!") is not an argument for Obamacare: in fact, it's a tacit admission that the ACA is a complete and total failure for the average person.
