After health ruling, will US be ready for the law?

Jun 29, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Reuters

Now that the Supreme Court has removed the main legal challenge to President Barack Obama's healthcare overhaul, policy experts question whether enough U.S. states will be ready to implement the law when it takes full effect in 2014.

So you do not believe in the free market? Where there is DEMAND and now money to pay for it you do not believe that SUPPLY follows like night follows day?
No? Pray tell why you Reubliscums are such idiots.
Pray tell....How long do you think it takes to build a full service Hospital hot shot? Don't feel too bad, Pelosi and Obama conveniently ignored such realities too.

<quoted text>
Tennessee and Texas - so far..." Rep. Zach Wamp (R-TN), who is running in a heated three-way Republican primary for governor of Tennessee, has a dire warning about the new health care reform law: If a new Congress and president aren’t elected in order to repeal the bill, states might just have to secede.“I hope that the American people will go to the ballot box in 2010 and 2012 so that states are not forced to consider separation from this government,” said Wamp, who has also promised to refuse to implement the law at the state level if he is elected, in an interview with the Hotline.Wamp also praised Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX)— who has also floated the idea of secession — for leading the fight against the health care bill.“Patriots like Rick Perry have talked about these issues because the federal government is putting us in an untenable position at the state level,” said Wamp.Click here to read more."

Leave already.

Rick Perry has threatened to have Texas secede more than once. All he does is promise. He never actually takes any action.

So leave already. What are Republiscum waiting for? Declare independence, make your own flag, seal the borders and call a press conference.

Go ahead.

Health care is not just provided in hospitals. You can open clinics. Retail stores have nurses. Health care comes in many forms.

Heck, they even travel in this ridiculously insane example of the disaster and shame that is the America health care industry.

http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/...

"where some 1,700 medical professionals had set up dental chairs, mammogram stations, panoramic X-ray machines and more, ready to diagnose maladies, numb mouths, pull teeth and take pap smears for Americans down on their luck and battered by economic realities.

And all for free.

Remote Area Medical (RAM), a travelling collective of volunteer medical practitioners, was set up in 1985 by British expatriate Stan Brock, who wanted to take medical care to those who were too poor, or live in areas too remote, to otherwise access it."

There are even video house calls. The point being that hospitals are not the sole source for medical care, not by a long shot. Besides, hospitals are full of sick people and are good places for catching some nasty bugs. I like the idea of a mobile clinic that makes house calls.

Fish stocks are pretty depleted. Too many men were taught to fish.

it wont be the wealthy, because probably 75% of TARP cost fell on Americans making less than $120,000 a year since we all had to bail the wealthy and Wall Street out in 2008.

americans will enjoy their free healthcare as time goes by. i'm with you mc pat, we need to let our elected officials do their job and take care of us, heck, we elected them because they are smarter than the general population. next they can go after firearms because we can't hug our children with firearms. if were a younger brother i would protest the nra. but then again i would'nt look good with bullet holes in the back. of coarse the police would call it the worst case of suicide they ever saw.
There is no free healthcare.
You pay it through taxes.

My dad comes closer to getting free healthcare he gets his insurance from his employer.

43% of Americans are insured by their employers.

13% of Americans are not insured.

Yes this is not the first time America went against the majority to help a 13% minority.

There is a 13% minority in the U.S that we always bend over backwords for & it does no good.

With more people & less fish all the time.

It is probably actually a good idea to invest in fish now. Fish farms that is.

Massachusetts has the highest insurance premiums in the nation. And the federal government picked up 1/2 the tab for implementing Romneycare. Who will pick up the feds tab for implementing this nationally? China?
