He obviously gives our name heritagte a bad name and must be destroyed.

Yes, because that is EXACTLY what I said. Brewmenn, the master of twisting words to play devil's advocate so he can pretend he's not a terrorist.

Brilliant. The new Republican health care slogan can be "just get health care".

Pretty much. Cancel your cell phone. Cancel your HDTV service. Cancel your internet connection and buy health insurance.

I just upgraded my job at the beginning of this year. My new employer pays 100% of my bcbs. That was a good bonus for me more pay and free health care. We have a meeting Monday to discuss "the changes in Heath care plan". Thanks Obama.

I got an e-mail from my company saying that the information packet for next year will come in the mail but that there are no major changes.

Your company likes you, others are getting cut off completely. Just because your options hasn't changed doesn't mean that it won't for others. Mine has some changes, I haven't read what all they are yet.

Maybe other companies can't afford to keep people on their system anymore with the changes to come. So they cut hours to the point people no longer qualify for health care or they just cut their programs completely. Not something the people can chose to work harder about or to qualify for when they haven't been given a choice to do so at their current job.

But it's already been established in this thread that the likelihood of getting good health insurance was directly related to how hard you work. So if I'm keeping my insurance while others lose theirs it must mean that I'm a harder worker than them.

Why do you guys argue with Bruce?

You know damn well that you won't change his opinion over the internet and that 99% of the time he's just playing devil's advocate.

Obama care is giving health care to the people that are completely able bodied with the ability to work but are too busy leeching off the rest of us in every way that they can. If someone is too lazy to help themselves why should the rest of us have to suffer with worse health care to help them out? I don't give a shit about a crack dealer with a cold and a hangnail.

He plays Devils advocate on purpose to get people to think. I hope people have made the connection that not everybody can just work thier way into a better place. Thier jobs restrict thier upward movement. Chances are, if they are in that postion, they aren't able to just look for another job either.

Is the answer obamacare? Hell no. But the 'american' idea that you just have to work harder is not true due to companies screwing over thier employees.
