Comparing today's HP to the HP of the 80s, I'm inclined to side with Schiller.
Agreed. Of course,
Benghazi outrage is not happening GOP, it's never gonna happen.
This. Talk about clutching at straws! Hey, GOP, your desperation is showing.
I know it's a cultural thing in some places to hold generations-long grudges against people for the "sins of their fathers". But I've never understood it. And I'll never accept it. And if that's one area where I'm just culturally-insensitive, that's one insensitivity I can live with.
Hear, hear. I agree 100%, and wish I had mod points.

More like, welcome to 2003.

Don't cost us anything..
Are you serious? The Corp pays for nothing: they raise their prices to cover unpaid ER bills, and customers pay handsomely, i.e. our pockets are picked, in the Jeffersonian sense, for healthcare delivered to the uninsured in the most costly and inefficient way.
And I take Jefferson's quote from your post and modify it. If he were alive today he'd probably say, "It does me no injury for my neighbor to have insurance or no insurance. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg."
Incorrect. For my neighbor to have no insurance indeed picks my pocket. Do you think ERs are free?
You eat three meals a day, for a month, on that $200? This figure alone causes me to suspect that you are unusually frugal, i.e. never eating out, always brown-bagging lunch, no pre-prepared food, lots of very simple, home-cooked fare, etc. Not an impossible lifestyle, but an usual one these days, in this country.
