Why do people think Sarah Palin is hot?
Our RD expenses have little to do with healthcare costs. Insurance and pharmaceutical companies are certainly not hurting. Tort reform also has nothing to do with it. It is a drop in the bucket. And neither does illegal immigration. We are already paying for illegal's healthcare now through emergency room care, which is far more inefficient than allowing them to go doctors. A clear 30-35% of our costs right now go to overhead and profits of insurance companies. Insurance works better the more members there are. The most efficient way to do it would be to have all 300 millions Americans in it, in a non-profit system. Why are you so unwilling to let the government take over management of this system instead private insurance, who are costing us far more that the government would. Medicare works great. Just make it for everyone. It is a much more efficient system than private insurance. In the end it would be far cheaper.
BTW, I also play guitar, and mandolin too. And I love Waylon Jennings to. First time I saw him was in 1978. Him and Willie Neslon opened for the Dead.
freemfromself, don't be so quick to count the public option out of the health care bill. I think Obama will have real problems from his own party if he abandons it. The goal is not just to give health care to the uninsured, it is to fix a system in which we pay twice as much for healthcare than any other industrialized nation. And that 15% does not include those who are underinsured (those who have high deductables and still avoid going to the doctor, and those with pre-existing conditions that aren't covered). That means the insurance company still collects the premium, but pays out little benefits for actual healthcare.
I think it is just wrong and immoral for corporations and CEOs to be making outrageous profits on people's healthcare. It is amazing that it is over 100 years since universal healthcare was first proposed by Teddy Roosevelt (a republican), and we still don't have it.
Don't eat the brown acid...
Medicare is almost bankrupt, social security is almost bankrupt. Were do you get faster service; at your local jiffy lube or at the deq? How pleasant are the workers at your Motor vehicles division? Do you want the government to have access to your healthcare records? The more big government steps in the fewer rights we have. Older people like the idea of wealth pooling. After all their generation absolutely reaped all the benefits of a free market society, now the whole damn world could go communist - what do you care, you got your nut. What about our kids? Dont they deserve to have opportunities to earn according to there level of output?
P.s. Sarah Palin is still hot!
. . . and now I really like you Jimahl because you like Waylon! Awesome! And my friend George is a huge Grateful Dead fan. have you seen Warren Hanes Band Government Mule? Awesome!
Jimahl - The U.S. spends a large percentage more on R&D then other industrialized nations, (Canada sure reaps those rewards). We know some insurance companies have top heavy corporations, we also need to reduce malpractice lawsuits (tort reform). Illegal imigration has also impacted health care in some states. I am not saying that the Gov should not be involoved, maybe in regulation, but to create another huge beauracracy? There were plenty of brownies BTW! ( I didnt eat any)
Utopia - Did I not tell you most of my good friends are liberals? We usually do not discuss politics, lol! My hippie friends have really opened me up musically, to the point where I am now learning guitar, and music theory. I still love Waylon Jennings but now I am listening to Joe Walsh, Clapton, and SRV.
OMG Jimahl, you are fricken hillarious, adams apple, hahahahahahahaha! Ann is too thin! I need some meat! anyways. . . apparently Sarah Palin was on to something, because the dems are having to change their tune on health care. America dodged a beaurocratic bullet their - phew! Maybe we can find a cheaper way to insure the remaining 15 percent without spending 1/7 of our anual budget on it. This not for profit option sounds better than that 1000 page pile of B.S. I read through the other day - just for fun :)
You too are still my favorite liberals on funadvice. . . :) Oh , I was at a woodstock party on sunday, I may have even made a peace sign with my fingers! :)
V for Victory you pinko commies! and excuse me while I kiss the sky!!!
I could care about Clinton. I was never a supporter.
Palin ran on a platform of lies, ignorance and cute little girl winks and baby faces when cornered. She is still dishing out the lies...death panel...even some of her own party members are telling her to stop spreading that lie.
This question was about looks...I do not find overly made-up women attractive...doesn't matter the party.
I heard that if you scrape off Palin's make-up her face is only a big as a quarter...
Ann Coulter...until she opens her mouth.
How about "looks fade, but childish critisism and left-winged bias is forever!"
Personaly, with respect to Mr. Todd Palin, I think Sarah Palin has kept herself up rather nicely through the years. Four kids have not added or taken away to much to/from her. Now, Hillary on the other hand. . . . .eeewwe!
Loves and hugs Utopia :)
I am sure that she holds great appeal for the older conservatives and the more 'joe the plumber' types...also the nra guys probably think she is hot.
If I were male, I would not be attracted to her thick make up and barbie doll, ellie mae clampet looks...her lack of intelligence and down home spun phrases turn my stomach.
Freefromself, I would not normally ever care or comment on a woman's looks, but the question dealt with it directly. I really could care less how Mr. Todd feels, or how well she has kept herself. She is a complete moron regardless of ideology. Death panels? c'mon man...
Sorry filetofspam, but Malkin I guess is hot, Ingrahm I don't think is even close, and Coulter is Ok if you don't mind the adams apple.
Bottom line, when they open their mouths, they turn into a bunch of hags.
Who said anything about Hillary? Who care what they look like as long as they can do their job well. Palin, regardless of how she looks, was completely unqualified. She is just not all that smart.
Agree with Jimahl: she has attractive features but when she speaks she is annoying and idiotic. A certain level of intelligence is a prerequisite for me to be attracted to a woman.
todaly: "All the hot chicks are liberals."
Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham and Michelle Malkin are hot.
Amy Holmes isn't bad.
***Oh , I was at a woodstock party on sunday, I may have even made a peace sign with my fingers!
I thought I felt hell freeze over...
Well, she's one of the few Republican females who isn't absolutely physically repulsive, I suppose.
All the hot chicks are liberals.
Compared to most politicians she is attractive. But once she opens her mouth to speak, she gets downright repulsive.
My dad told me once
she has sex appeal shes not pretty
though I guess she just has sex appeal
I would NOT call hillary clinton attractive on any level. have you SEEN her legs?! EWWW!!!
She is the classic MILF. don't know what it means?
What is the saying...
'Looks fade but stupid is forever'
Beauty is subjective...ALWAYS in the eye of the beholder...
'cause they have been inhaling too much helium.
she's not hot!!!
No one. :)
