MSM: Still Crazy After All These Months

Has anyone heard of the Patient's Choice Act of 2009?Anyone? Beuller? Beuller?

The Patient's Choice Act is a bill co-sponsored by two Republican senators (Tom Coburn, M.D. [R-OK] and Richard Burr [R-NC]), and two Republican congressman (Paul Ryan [R-WI] and Devin Nunes [R-CA]). For one thing, the very existence of the bill dispels the erroneous notion that Republicans have "no solutions", only opposition to Obama. Not many know this, however, because the mainstream media does not report on it.

No, it seems that they've still got too much Obama-dust in their eyes to actually do their jobs of informing the American people - their consumers - about matters that affect their lives. There is an agenda to get pushed and, by God, the media is going to push hard. Since they won't inform the public, it's left to people like me to do, so I will post this video and let Rep. Ryan explain the bill in his own words.



In light of all the angst and turmoil at town hall meetings across America this summer, why have the American people not been better informed about this bill? Bear in mind, that video is from May, three months ago. I challenge you; type in Patient's Choice Act in Google, click "news", sort by date and see what the search yields.

Tell people about this so that they can bring it up at town hall meetings.

Amongst Ney's topics of discussion on the program were the economy, the pirate hostage crisis, and the Obama's new dog. Ney also has a video posted on the station's website, Ney says that his radio show is a work in progress. He also said that he expects some negative feedback from listeners because of his prior conviction.

If Republicans honestly and genuinely cared about health care reform, they would've passed substantive reform during their 8 years which they held majorities in both House's of Congress and a Republican President.

They now say that we can all agree that insurance reform is very much needed. So, why didn't they sponsor legislation to make it illegal for insurance companies to refuse coverage for those with pre-existing illnesses?

Excellent question, spatter, and one I can no more answer than I could the question of why, after 40 years of congressional dominance, Democrats were still bitterly complaining about "racial inequality".

The real question now, however, is whether the Republican proposal for reform is null and void simply because it is belated.

I have an idea. Why don't you pay for the medical bills of someone with a pre-existing condition. Or better yet, why not make all insurances "as needed"? Then, no one will ever have to pay for an auto accident or a fire until they have one? Wait. I'm sorry. That's not insurance, it's called "someone else paying for your mistakes". Insurance only works if you don't know whether or not you will need it. That is why they call it risk. Pre-existing conditions kind of blows out that candle. No?
Perhaps a tax credit for those with pre-existing conditions would help them with their treatment. But let's not drive up the cost of everyone else's insurance with stupidity.
