And you know this?

How?
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Why would you even ask that question?

That's what an average medium-hotter-than-your-wife hooker costs. Really about $100 but they do give discounts. You have to have a card though.

Trump Administration declines to defend ObamaCare against lawsuit by 20 states

Wait, you’re thinking, wasn’t the individual mandate repealed as part of the tax reform law Trump signed in December?

Actually it was the tax penalty that was repealed. The individual mandate is technically still in place, but there is no enforcement mechanism. And that, 20 state attorneys general believe, presents a new opening to get ObamaCare thrown out in whole or in part by the courts. In fact, it may be the wording in Chief Justice John Roberts’s opinion saving ObamaCare in 2012 that dooms it now.
...
The tax is now gone, yet the individual mandate is still in the law. So how is it still constitutional? The 20 states argue it’s not, and the Trump Administration refuses to argue to the contrary:
The Supreme Court ruled in a landmark 2012 opinion that the health law, and specifically the requirement that Americans have health insurance, was constitutional because the penalty for not having coverage was handled by the Internal Revenue Service and fell within Congress’s taxation powers.

But Congress repealed the penalty for not having insurance last year.
...
Mr. Sessions, in the letter to congressional leaders, said: “The department in the past has declined to defend a statute in cases in which the president has concluded that the statute is unconstitutional and made manifest that it should not be defended, as is the case here.”


Oh well....
Then Skank Of America could start in...

Well, republicans have had almost 2 years to replace it with their own much better plan. What have they done?

It'll be single payer. Because we already have the bureaucracy in place (Medicare) and it will be extended. Don't ask me how they will expect to pay for it.

The insurance companies will get their end by selling supplemental coverage.




Maybe President Pence will reach across the aisle. :notsure:

Maybe what we need is some good old rugged individualism for a change.

1) Build a city of 1930's New York City style skyscrapers.
2) Make them invisible.
3) ????
4) Health care.



I slay me. :lmao:

Is that on the marketplace or through an employer?
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"
