  •  Why do they leave out Medicaid numbers? (2+ / 0-)

    Don't people now able to get Medicaid/medical care count? It seems the people touting that low 100,000 Exchange enrollee number are just shills for the insurance industry.

    I was livid when I saw that NY Times headline. What a crock!

    •  You want the MSM to tout a government program? (4+ / 0-)

      Are you serious?  

      Don't you realize that Medicaid is a bloated government bureaucracy that lets a bunch of lazy, indolent minorities get free health care they don't deserve?  

      Don't you realize that Medicaid helps poor people?  

      Why on earth would anyone want to draw attention to the expansion of a program that wastes money on "takers" who'd rather get handouts than do an honest day's work?

      Don't you understand that this is going to do nothing but foster the "culture of dependency"?

      Haven't you figured out that this is just a way for Democrats to buy the votes of the 47% of the population that's just too shiftless to work?

      Haven't you . . .

      Oh, wait, I seem to be fresh out of right-wing talking points.  Why don't you check back with me on Sunday afternoon once I've had a chance to watch the morning talk shows?  By then the talking heads will have provided me with whole new list of Republican slogans that they've repackaged as "commentary."
