Yer the deadbeat, lyepoophead.

But that's a discussion for another day.

The point is, Medicare is wildly popular among those it serves, with an approval rating of over 90%.

If it's good enough for Gramps and Granny, it ought to be good enough for the rest of us.

Scrap Obamacare, and replace it with the tried and true -- Medicare for ALL!

See the numbers.

90+ approval rating for Medicare.

Good enough for Granny? Heck yes!

Then, good enough for us all.

(90+% don't lie, but the mongrel does.)

OK! I give in! You win!

Let's scrap Obamacare and institute Medicare for all!

There's gotta be a reason why Medicare has a 90+ approval rating among seniors!

If the famously hard-to-please geeeeezer crowd likes it, that's the health insurance plan I want! Seriously!

Is it perfect? Heck no! But just try to take it away from them, Republicants! You think you're an endangered species now? Ha! Mess with seniors! Go ahead!

You'll wind up as the textbook for how NOT to win friends and influence people! You'll be a mere discoloration on the highway of American politics!

"Republican" is already synonymous with "Wheel Granny over the cliff!" Mess with Medicare!

Make my day!

Exercise your 2nd Amendment rights today with a 21-gun salute to

Medicare for All!

Let's all join together on this, our nation's birthday, to give a rip-roaring, red-white-and-boom salute to one of the most popular and successful programs ever devised by Americans -- Medicare.

And let us not rest until every American experiences the piece of mind that comes with knowing that destructive health issues don't have to result in financial destruction as well.

90% of seniors already know this. Let's make it so that the rest of us can enjoy the same benefit.

Medicare for All!

Wow did Obama just give the evil rich corporations a pass on their mandate while keeping the individual mandate for citizens!

Whatever the policy rationale, the political result of the move is obvious: this is a step which will slow the Obamacare train wreck for craven and obvious electoral purposes. Despite three years and hundreds of millions of dollars spent in the ramp up to enforcement and implementation of the law, it’s obvious to anyone with a connection to businesses — particularly restaurant chains — with more than 50 full-time equivalent employees that massive uncertainty exists about the penalties they will face under the law — and whether those penalties could actually turn out to be less expensive than offering insurance coverage. This uncertainty was exacerbated a few weeks ago by the decision to delay the small business exchange for a year, eliminating the functionality of that marketplace overnight. Republicans have argued vociferously that Obamacare is impacting the job market negatively: this delay is a tacit admission that they are right.

Obamas incredible decision to delay the employer mandate portion of the law until after the last election Obama will face as president makes total sense. Ezra Klein is suggesting that repealing the employer mandate entirely is the way to go. Klein’s certainly right — but then, this has to be considered an admission that the employer mandate was about gaming the Congressional Budget Office rather than pursuing a policy that made sense for the economy: it served its purpose of getting the law passed, and now has outlived its usefulness!

But studies have shown that hospitals do not absorb the entire cost of the free care they provide. Much of the cost is passed on to people who do have insurance and seek hospital care, thereby resulting in higher premiums — mostly paid by their employers. In other words, employers are punished for providing a benefit to their employees.

Obamacare will continue to punish employers by making them absorb cost! Oh wow, isn't this what the article is about!

Nationally, 1 percent of the population accounts for 25 percent of the health-care cost; 5 percent of the population accounts for 50 percent of the health-care bill.

Sounds like an individual responsibility issue! Especially when you consider more than 80% are covered!

More Marxist lies! They won't even engage in this debate!

Perhaps it’s the political reali- ty that the 13th congressional district is one of the most Democratic in the state. Or, it could be an indication of his strong belief in the rightness of his actions. But U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan of Niles remains steadfast in his support of the Affordable Care Act, derisively called Obamacare by the Republicans, and the federal bailout of General Motors Corp. and Chrysler Corp.

To the five-term congressman, those issues in particular go the heart of the Mahoning Valley’s economic wellbeing and future. And, he believes, they address the concerns of residents of the district.
