• What do you think of the Republican alternative to Obamacare?

    Yesterday, three Republican Senators — Tom Coburn (Okla.), Richard Burr (N.C.), and Orrin Hatch (Utah) – put forward a plan to “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. They call it the Patient CARE Act, and Avik Roy says it is “the most credible plan yet” offered by the GOP." What is the Patient CARE Act?... show more

Simple - a huge tax increase on the middle class. http://www.forbes.com/sites/matthewherpe...

  • How soon after lung surgery will you know if it was success?

    I know the success of the surgery depends on how bad the cancer is and what stage and all that. But I was curious. When the surgery is done, do you find out right then and there if they got the cancer? Do they wait a few days? Weeks? For anyone who does know this, thank you in advanced.

  • Why don't repubs realize that if birth control is provided freely that would cut down on later govt help?

    If birth control was provided freely along with sex education (not that abstinence nonsense that doesn't reflect reality) then the amount of children being born would decrease thus lowering the amount of welfare recipients. Also it would decrease the crime rate since a lot of unwanted children wouldn't grow up lashing out at society because... show more
    If birth control was provided freely along with sex education (not that abstinence nonsense that doesn't reflect reality) then the amount of children being born would decrease thus lowering the amount of welfare recipients. Also it would decrease the crime rate since a lot of unwanted children wouldn't grow up lashing out at society because they had a hard home life. People would learn to be responsible through proper sexual education. Yes there would also be a decrease in abortions. It's a win win for anyone with a logical mind. JAKER read it again. I said birth control AND proper sex education (not that abstinence nonsense). BOND: but proper sex education hasn't been available for the past 40 yrs. All that's taught in schools is abstinence and that's idiotic. BECAUSE ABSTINENCE CLEARLY DOESN'T WORK. Abstinence is ignoring the problem and hoping it goes away. The sex drive is extremely powerful. If it wasn't then the earth wouldn't currently have 7 billion humans on it.

  • If raising the minimum wage works, why didn't it work the last time it was raised?

    Keep in mind, raising the minimum wage does not lead to inflation according to your college econ professor. KM and Tonalc2 - If it worked the last time, why would you need to raise it again?

  • Do different people see different colours differently?

    For example:if I see red, another person sees as what I see as green. It is just a random thought I had at school yesterday, and I have been thinking about it ever since

  • Will Conservatives please stop posing as Liberals asking that Conservatives be exterminated?

    Because we KNOW liberals would never support or advocate such a thing, even if it did cost them an election or two. Right?

  • Is it true that in the UK you can shoot someone in their left leg if they trespass?

    My friend told me that if someone trespasses on your land in the UK then you are allowed to shoot them in their left leg because their right leg has a main artery or however you spell it, would a ruger 10/22LR be a good defence gun??

  • Why do cons still think those who lost their scam insurance will never again be able to get insurance?

    You'd think the ACA said, "You can't have those plans any more and you can never have insurance again!" not "Society is not going to pick up the cost of paying for what your scam plan won't cover, but we'll be happy to help you get something better!" Par 4, who pays for it when a hospital takes someone who does... show more

Par 4, who pays for it when a hospital takes someone who does not have insurance or any way to pay the bill? When you can answer that, and say that you approve of that way of paying, feel free to edit your answer. As to how horrendously expensive replacement plans will be, do you really think Costco is going to charge you an arm and a leg? http://money.msn.com/saving-money-tips/p... Not to mention a lot of you will qualify for subsidies. Scales, I base that on 60% of all bankruptcies over the last ten years being filed for medical bills and 75% of those bankruptcies being filed by people WHO HAD INSURANCE!
