If so, what is the cost and limits? Inquiring minds want to know.
Exchanges don't start here in Illinois until Oct. 1.

Re: Obamacare

The ACA actually provided a boost in payments for 2013 and 2014 to primary care physicians who take Medicare, as a carrot to get more primary care physicians to take Medicare patients. Funding was also approved in the ACA for states to expand their Medicare rolls....which has been blocked by several...

Re: Obamacare

You don't do single payer well when you refuse to pay for it, you mean. The VA got over $140 billion in funding FY '13. They have about 5.5 million patients. That's a little over $25,000 per patient in funding. Medical funding is 40% of the budget. That's $56 billion or a little over $10k a year pe...

Re: Obamacare

I don't think any country does single payer well. It would be nice to see someone start with a simple model that stopped the "one hospital trip from bankruptcy" syndrome and then stopped there. Over here they keep legislating what private insurers can and can't cover. I don't understand the point.....

Re: NO shooting and the Castle Doctrine

If one believes there is imminent threat of great bodily harm of one's person or another's person, or imminent threat to loss of property, I think lethal force is justified.

Re: Zimmerman

Ok, California requires minimal force to defend, thanks for that. However, if your fists aren't doing the job of defending, and the next tool you have is a gun, you're justified in using the only tool left to you. So, if you suck at fighting, instead of taking your ass beating, you are allowed to s...
