What the hell does that have to do with it. He insulted my state. Is that supposed to be ok just because the Washington Post reported on it?

Immediately his/her insurance company drops their coverange insisting that the illness had to be a pre-existing condition.

The medical community is not a charity. Someone has to pay for it. Hope they saved their nickels and dimes.

So after years of paying those fees it's perfectly ok for them to just drop you because the medical community is not a charity??? NEITHER IS THE GUY WHO GAVE HIS MONEY TO THE INSURANCE COMPANY ALL THOSE YEARS

Damn that's a new one

"hello? yeah, I sent in a check for a subscription some time ago and haven't gotten any magazines yet"

"Well Sir, we're not a charity you know"

Your state doesn't need any help to be insulted, you reelected old dead girlfriend Ted until he finally gave up breathing and then drinking.

When a swimmer or runner wins a gold medal they don't give the medal to the coach who told them to go out and run or swim fast. All they did was give an order, someone else actually accomplished what needed to be done.

No, but if the swimmer or runner is any kind of sports(wo)man they will acknowledge their coaches contribution from the pedestal.

Very poor analogy.

For those 25 years they were covered i.e. 'received the magazines'.
There is a medical/legal definition of 'pre-existing condition'. So either the person did not handle the issue correctly, or legal action is necessary. There are reasons why some of us have multiple lawyers.

My reference was to the hospital as not being a charity. That has nothing to do with the insurance company. We don't provide medical care (which is expensive) for free. If that is the case, then you should be able to get your groceries for free, your car fixed for free... hey, everything for free. Woo hoo! Utopia. Now let's get back to reality. (and an evaluation of reading comprehension)

If he is in support of the private sector, that pretty much tells us exactly where he'd lead this country.

Obama killed bin Laden. Deal with it.

Or did you think that George W. Bush himself personally stopped all those foiled terrorist attacks each and every one he got credit for.

Maybe you also believe that sometime between his swearing in and lunch in the Senate Dining room, or where ever they have that lunch, newly elected President Reagan took a super fast plane to Iran and singlehandedly freed those hostages, for which the right gave him credit
