    Nothing was ignored.

    So if nothing was ignored what is it exactly that Paul Ryan discussed that was either left out or added to the healthcare bill?

    Did Paul Ryan vote for the healthcare bill?

    What is being ignored by you is the fact that this bill does nothing to improve the quality of healthcare or lower costs. You are also ignoring the cost of the MA program which was the model for this bill. Once again arrogant liberals believe they can do a better job than other arrogant liberals. Problem is the rest of us have to pay for liberal screwups.

    How can that be? there were 5 seperate Republican bills in the house last summer before the townhall meetings. My rep. John Shaddag had his own plan. I saw it with my own eyes last August.

    This statment is demonstratedly false, and probably designed to inflame passions.
    The Republicans had a 6 year window to do something about it when they were in control of both the presidency and Congress.

    Guess what they did about it? Jack ****!

    Next batter!

    That would be a strike out on your part, since Boo won't answer the questions how about you? What makes you think that the results nationally with this healthcare bill will be any different than the results in MA?

    We have a doctor shortage, we have the insured using the ER's now, we have millions that are eligible for Medicare, Medicaid, or the SCHP program that haven't registered, and now we have a leftwing liberal socialist Congress and Govt. creating another entitlement program and bureaucracy to handle about 10 million truly uninsured that cannot pay for insurance and you support that?

    Before getting in the batters box you need to get out of T-Ball.

    This deserves to be in Breaking News in my opinion because it is obviously topical, the results are startling, and the New England Journal of Medicine isn't exactly a politically-charged blog site. There are many references to this article today, but I thought it best to post the survey itself.

    Will your personal doctor give up his/her practice if Obamacare passes?

    Obama is sickening. He pulls a bunch of white coats up on stage as if the medical community is completely "behind him" on this. Obviously, they are not.

    America, this is what the radical left looks like. Like much?
    That will never happen. few will quit. We heard the same when Medicare passed .... very very few quit...

    If they quit maybe Faux News will hire them as a "balance" to Sanjay GUPTA -

    There is a doctor shortage now and when you cut Medicare payments, that is going to make the problem worse even with the offset. How is this program going in MA? Do facts ever play a part in your world? Why will the group of liberals in the WH do a better job than the group of liberals that are running MA healthcare?

    Just thought you should know:

    As concerns Medicare:

    The law calls for 10 % incentive payments for primary care physicians.

    The law requires 5 % incentive payments for mental health services.

    The law says that in 2010 and 2011, Medicare will make changes to its payment rates that will benefit physicians in rural and low cost areas.

    In 2013 and 2014, Medicaid payments to primary care physicians will be raised to match Medicare rates. The federal government will provide 100% of the funding needed for states to meet this requirement. (Medicaid payments are generally 30% lower than Medicare rates.)

    Will Doctors Face Medicare Cuts? - Medicare and More


    The new law also takes steps to keep doctors' doors open for Medicare patients. Physicians will get bonus payments for primary care, a little-noticed strategy to promote access for seniors.

    And it is important to note what is not changing under health insurance reform. The law explicitly prohibits any cuts to seniors’ guaranteed Medicare benefits.

    Read the links. Again, your claim was he wasn't reported. The links show that is clearly not true. If you want information on him and what he did and said, read the links.

    Costs for this program is being shifted to the states and they will be forced to reduce Medicaid rates to doctors so where is that offset. Further why do you believe this group of liberals in the WH will generate different results from the group of liberals in MA running that program?

    Are you really this naive?

    I have read the links and I have read the bill. Everything Ryan said is true and yet you and others still continue to defend this legislation and do so claiming it as a "good first step." When you spent trillions it better be more than just a good first step and all this is a "good first step" to is single payer, govt. take over that puts more power in the hands of the Federal govt. Is that what you really want?

    In spite of the evidence that the Federal Govt. doesn't run any social program well, you continue to support it. That is liberal arrogance.

    It is your opinion that it is true. You're wrong mind you, but I won't argue that YOU don't believe it. Only that he and you are mostly wrong (not 100%).

    And whenever you or anyone start with an absolute, the government can't run any program, you should stop, take a deep breath, and reevaluate your thinking. There are very few absolutes in the real world.
