    I never said I knew what your specific health costs are, what soiled straw you toss around!

    We do know what the levels of medical spending are between the US and the countries mentioned that have true UHC. We have debated that countless times.

    Tell me ... would you call Single Payer private insurance too?
    If I refer to countries where SP is used....and refer to that as UHC.....and differentiate it from the PPACA.....why do you have to ask if I call SP "private ins"?

    You can't figure that out for yourself?

    Yes and you still are on the losing end of the argument, but you want badly to believe that you can insure 30 million more Americans at a lower cost and provide better service with no waiting times and less demand on the ER rooms for after all liberalism is well known for its efficiency, quality, and lower costs.

    I had no idea the President has the power to call Congress into session. Must be the Conservative version of the Consitution....
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    It would help if you learned how the govt. works, a good basic civics class would help. Article Two of the Constitution

    Section 3: Presidential responsibilities[edit]


    He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them
    I would say that disagreement and no budget would qualify as extraordinary occasions

    Really? Disagreement about budget is an extraordinary occasion? Okaaay.

    When was the last time a President called Congress into a special session? 1948. And it pissed off the right wingers, much as it would piss you off.

    Its not necessary anymore. Congress doesnt take breaks as much as they used tto.

    Can you tell me the last time a President called a special session of Congress for anything other than war/military action? I can wait.
    Aw, yes, we are only 17 trillion in debt, no budget in over 4 years, credit crisis, but he has time for campaign events for an office that he holds. Congress is in session now, when was he last involved in a meeting with the leadership? What exactly do you believe the role of the President is? I can see why you like Obama, you have no idea what leadership is, what results are acceptable, and how to work with someone else to get positive economic results.

    Maybe because they are afraid to go home. Tar and feathers await them!
    If you live long enough, you will live in a foreign country, because the past is foreign to the present. We lived differently then. The only constant is change!

    Four years? Wow, why thats as long as Republicans have controled the house. Hey, do you think thats a correlation to not having a budget passed? I do.

    but he has time for campaign events for an office that he holds.
    When Bush went around the country campaigning for the privatization of social security, what do you think he was doing? Picking his nose?

    Congress is in session now, when was he last involved in a meeting with the leadership?
    He talks on the phone with Boehner all the time. But boo hoo Boehner can't control the house...and if he can't control the house then how can make any deals with the president?

    What exactly do you believe the role of the President is? I can see why you like Obama, you have no idea what leadership is, what results are acceptable, and how to work with someone else to get positive economic results.
    Answering your own questions is a sign of insanity. So why bother asking if you don't want real answers? Lalalalalalalalalala.....
