    Keeping children on their parents' plan til age 26...not good?

    Forcing providers to clearly lay out benefits in an easily comparable format? Is that not a good thing for consumers?

    Limiting unreasonable yearly caps?



    I'm failing to see the evil. Can anyone fill me in?

    Let me help you out.

    Sick people shouldn't have insurance if they can't pay for it and I certainly shouldn't have to pay their way just because they fail at life.

    26 year olds who still need their parents for insurance are called bums. They are not children. The world is better off without them.

    Providers already lay out benefits in an easily understandable format. If you can't read, it's not their fault.

    I would argue just the opposite they are doing their jobs better than any other congress person there. They where specifically elected in large part on this one issue. They are actually doing what their constituents want. That is their job. Do you not see the blogsphere and memes and all that bullshit that this side generates? These fuckers are happy. They where not elected to go play nice or to compromise they where elected to be dick heads. Its what this jr class ran on and by god they are actually doing it.

    The only problem with the U.S. system is losers who can't support themselves because they're lazy pieces of **** and expect hard working people to give a **** about them.

I watched them sitting on their asses smoking weed in their 20s when I was doing **** the hard way and avoiding the easy road, which resulted in me being stronger than they could ever be in their wildest dreams.

    **** them and **** anybody who thinks the world owes them a goddamn thing. They're nothing. Nobody. They're shells of men.

    This is a common misperception...yes, they are there to represent their constituency (not just the loudest ones, though), but Congress legislates for the USA, not just E Buddhafuck, Dakotas. Their oath of office is to the Country and the constitution, this is not a city council. Their responsibility is to be their districts representative in national government. In terms of fulfilling their oath and serving their Country?

    Fail.
