    It really depends on what you're in there for. If you come into the ED as a Trauma patient, you're looking at a minimum of 20k before you're even admitted to the hospital. Activating the resources for a trauma patient are much costly then a broken arm.


    I would chat with her when I'm feeling particularly snarky, but I wouldn't ever call her on the phone.

    Even then, now all politicians have to do is declare something a tax. Even *if* the intentions were to uphold the commerce clause dumb **** Roberts just green lighted a back door.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    And he's a necessary piece of repealing Obamacare now. Funny old world, isn't it?

I'm sure it was just a coincidence, even though Charles Grassley, Orrin Hatch, Robert Bennett, and Mitt Romney were all pushing an individual mandate as late as summer 2009.

    Actually the Supreme Court ruled that a mandate is unconstitutional. do try to keep up.

    Then HHS sets up exchanges for your state. I'm not sure if you still rate the subsidy or not, but there will be no Medicaid expansion.

    Ironic, isn't it. I'm sending money to the guy who represented what I dislike about the Republican party, and you are sending money to a guy who brings rappers that celebrate cop-killing to the White House for a performance of their "poetry".

    Not nessacarily Chief Justice Roberts actually said that a mandate by itself isnt really anything, but a Mandate with a monetary penalty can be counted as a tax.
