President Barack Obama said: "We shouldn't have a bunch of politicians, a majority of whom are men, making health care decisions on behalf of women." Doesn't Obama want the politicians to run health care? I thought that was the main idea of "Obama care" ...
As I understand it, the main idea behind the Obamacare was to give people the ability to make a decision regarding their healthcare options. At the moment, you cannot because you cannot afford it. In most cases, you cannot even get a doctor to tell you how much it will cost you to see a doctor. You can get billed later, but for most basic care, you have no idea what the costs will be upfront even if you wanted to pay cash. In any case, the Obama appears to wanted to make healthcare more affordable so you can chose because nothing, bankruptcy and death are not real options.
Obama care is a name used by the GOP to insult the President you idiot use the real name The Affordable Health Care Act. At least show the world that some GOP thug can think.
No, nobody calls it the "The Affordable Health Care Act". For better or worse it is called "Obamacare". Regardless, that is that does not answer the question. I think it is a fact that President Obama is in favor of greater government oversight of health care. I just think it was a hypocritical way to react to Akin's insane statement. Cheers.
you people are missing the point..."legitamate rape?" explain this to me...I'm paraphrasing...a woman's body has a way to stop this...what? the attack? the physical and emotional scarring? the birth of (unfortunatly) of an unwanted baby? the stress of feeling unwanted? An abortion?? What!?!? What is illegitamate rape? All the knuckle draggers, please step forward. I won't even try to explain what a woman's body works but one thing is for sure...the posibility always exist that when two "consesual" adults have sex (the word is consesual) that the posibility Always exist that either you produce life or any other unforetold circumstances (STDs for example). Let's be real...a nonthinking, noncaring, idioitic of a rapist (male or female) does not think about protected sex at the last minute, so what happens? Legitamate rape is a null phrase that carries a connotation of nonconsequence which also carries a connotation of irresponsibility and stupidity,
You're ranting at a Redneck Republicon who ain't here.
He, apparently, meant that some crackpot doctor told him "genuinely raped" women would not conceive from the encounter. Which, for the 0.5% cases where it's true, probably has more to do with being beaten within an inch of her life, than the fact that she said "no" but her assailant went ahead anyway.
