Watch this video from Fox News on a bitter cold evening in many parts, then imagine MSNBC’s Chris Matthews and Ed Schultz having the same conversation:

    To quote the Bard: 'Not that there's anything wrong with it!'

    The only way Chris Matthews and Ed Schultz would share a bed together is if they were the bread and Dear Leader the meat. That way they wouldn't be cheating and you know there is no way those two would ever cheat on their one true love……

    Are you sure you meant Ed Schultz and not Rachel Madcow…hard to tell those two apart.

    Thought that was Seinfeld..? lol

    Think it's great when conservatives explode progressive heads when it's revealed we actually DO have a sense of humor. While discussing TSA's heavy handed and misguided policies w/ Hannity, Sean asked if MM had been singled out for "the treatment" on a recent flight? Michelle responded by saying; "I guess the agents didn't think I was grope-worthy"!?

    As per usual, any time we bring the funny, Libs feel compelled to go into Dean Wermer Mode and place us on double SECRET probation… THEY'LL decide what, when and where WHO can be 'funny'.

    O/T…More O'Scare problems:

    Paperwork problems almost delayed suburban Chicago resident Sheri Zajcew’s scheduled surgery Thursday, but Dr. John Venetos decided to operate without a routine go-ahead from the insurance company. That was after Venetos’ office manager spent two hours on hold with the insurer Thursday, trying to get an answer about whether the patient needed prior authorization for the surgery. The office manager finally gave up.

    The story goes on to say that the husband was frustrated but ok with it because the doctor went on to do the surgery. It also notes that the coverage is a Bronze plan which means they more than likely have a deductible between $4k and $8k per person per year. How much you want to bet the husband wont be so thrilled when he sees his bill.

    First visual was gross enough, thanks! ( from previous )

    "Not getting paid is wow," Yes, yes it IS. The point I was trying to make, had you sold me a set of… custom wheels for $1,000 [retail] you probably only had $400 to $600 into them to begin with.

    Then when you REPO them you'll wipe 'em off, put them back in the box and recover a goodly amount by selling them at the deeply discounted price of $950! to the next new owner. Still a pita but at least you'll live to tell about it.

    On the Labor side, even in the med. field, there isn't as much room for "mark-up" and when someone stiffs you, there's nothing tangible to 'recover'. You can't go back to the lab tech or specialist and say, "We got stiffed on your last x-ray so we're going to need 1/4 of your last paycheck back".

    In reading the article, the only reason hubby isn't going thru the roof is b/c they had a really, REALLY cool doc that was willing to take a gamble he'd even get PAID? In 99 other cases..?

    There's so many things wrong w/ that whole scenario we scarcely know where to begin. Although less acute, O'Scare leaves millions of couples approaching retirement in such a quandary it is not to be believed. Every time I press Mrs. W for definitive answers about the future of her [med. tech] co. she patiently explains the plant mgr. and higher ups don't know anything more than SHE does!?

    How is it even possible for 50-somethings to conduct any form of retirement 'planning' under these oppressive circumstances? Or is this where we get lectured by Progs for only thinking about ourselves?

  9. Truesoldier__ on January 3rd, 2014 5:22 pm

    I hear you. No way to plan for something when you have no idea what the future will hold.

    It also makes you wonder just how many doctors/hospitals will go out of business due to non-payment by those that signed up for O'Scare, but never paid the premium or those that could never come up with the out of pocket expenses to cover the $4k – $8k deductible on their policy. Which will lead to a much greater doctor shortage and even higher premiums/deductibles.

    As Michelle has pointed out time and again; this thing is "fraud-ready". No one will ever declare BK over medical bills again! Just fluff the fine, live the dream and the next time you need urgent care, just pick up a policy off one of the 'exchanges'.

    Then promptly DROP it b/c now they can't refuse you care based on a pre-existing! Works great huh?

    But of course; to some, he is the Bard of their generation.
