re: Rand is now voting YES - ctalati32
[quote]what will be interesting is if Democrats all vote NO. If they do then they will be seen as not wanting to fix the broken healthcare system. Could be very bad for the Dems[/quote] Maybe to the republican base. What they (the Dems) will spin it as is they are not wanting to take 20 mill...

[quote]I have not followed this case except for the few blurbs on TV. But it is inconceivable to me that parents cannot take their own child out of a hospital to transfer it to a different hospital which offers a different treatment protocol. Especially if they are willing to pay for it. Eve...

[quote][quote]your problem with Charlie's case is the parents' rights were violated and not the actual health of the baby[/quote] Autonomy is absolutely the primary issue. Should the government dictate what career path you take? A lot of students pursue career paths that are not suited for ...

re: Just keep the damn thing and let it collapse - ctalati32
You need to lay off the Fox News. No way anyone outside of the Trump base will put this on the Dems when the Repubs have both houses, the presidency and fail to do anything to help alleviate the problem. They didn't even need a single Dem vote to pass this bill, but failed to do it after year...
