    STUPID Republicans and Cat Scratch Fever

    Republicans need to focus on the debt, the economy, our national security and a lot of other more important topics than limiting the access of contraception to women.  Plenty of women take contraception for medicinal purposes NOT to prevent birth.  In many cases, birth control pills vastly improve the lives women as a medicine where the intended use has nothing to do with preventing pregnancy. Taking on contraception is a HUGE loser.  Smarten up stupid Republicans in office!!!!  Making it more challenging for consenting adult men and women to have sex will always be a losing position.  Choice and individual freedoms should NEVER be compromised because of the desire of a few to control the masses.  This may be a shock to some, but most devout Catholic women take birth control pills and many love sex.  On behalf of men everywhere, I implore our legislators to let these women keep their little daily pills.

    On another note.....Romney was endorsed by Ted Nugent yesterday.  Ted is a little crazy but you have to love his passion for America.  With Ted on your side....how can you lose????

    Yet the root cause of the economic issues: the debt crisis and the ruin of the private sector economy,  is the same basic issue involved with the contraception issue.
    The uncontrolled overbearing Nanny State. 

    "... limiting the access of contraception to women."  
    Yes, let women keep their little pills, but dont force taxpayers to pay for 100% of their cost.
    That is like saying,
     "limiting access to good food"....so therefore the Government must mandate free food for all...
    "limiting access to good health"...so therefore  Government must mandate free gym memberships for all..
    "limiting access to transportation"   ...so Governement must mandate all comrade citizens get a Chevy Volt..

    Welcome to the Nanny State.

    Mitt endorsed by Ted Nugent? Does that really mean anything?

    An aging semi-one hit wonder from the late seventies who loves tell everyone how much he loves to kill animals? I think Mitt shouldn't play this joke up too much.

    Re: STUPID Republicans and Cat Scratch Fever

    Nobody is mandating women use contraception.....it's still their choice.  I would rather pay for a pack of pills than pay a lifetime of support for some kid born out of wedlock who stays in the welfare system for life along with her siblings and has more children that do the same.

    How do people ignore the fact that many women take birth control pills to regulate and lessen the effects of their menstrual cycle??

    Plenty of women are cripled for several days a month without their birth control pills.  If they aren't given access to that medication as part of their health coverage their lives will be drastically effected....and lets not forget the men who have to deal with those hormonal whacko women during that time....

    Too many other more important more expensive issues...

    And the Ted Nugent thing.....I like the guy, of course his endorsement means nothing....it's entertainment...and for those who didn't pick up on that....relax....have a beer and eat some meat on a bone.

    Amen brother. Republicans need to focus on unemployment, the debt, and the economy killing policies and crony capitalism corruption that is defining this administration.

    Democrats are desperately trying to make this election about social issues because their economic record is indefensible.

    Our economic problems are rooted in the foolish policies of one George Bush who was hardly a "nanny state" guy. Rewriting history is so totalitarian of you.

    Your argument against contraception coverage (used by virtually everyone during child bearing age) can be used on all kinds of dependable social services. Want to get rid of free High School educaton?  That is just as much a luxury as access effective birth control. And contraceptive care, taxpayers really pay for that.

    uh oh....we got ourselves a self-righteous vegetarian. Or are you one of those people who weep at someone killing and eating deer, yet you're ok with the mass killing of cows, chickens, and pigs for your daily consumption of meat??? That there is called bleeding heart liberal hypocrisy.

    [QUOTE]And here we have Kate Sibelius telling congress that free contraception will prevent pregnancy, and therefore pay for itself, while at the same time, in the same breath, citing the need for pregnancy. Zooooooom! And who the F said that was EVER the point? For Christ's sake, the point is MANDATE!  Are ya really missing the little tid bit that says, if individuals are mandated to have insurance, insurance companies are mandated to provide? Guess what happens under the model, Romney-care? MassHealth, and hospitals and doctors ADORE it!
    Posted by GreginMeffa[/QUOTE]
    Greg, hospitals and doctors are turning away patients that carry Masshealth and Medicaid because the reimbursement rate is controlled by nanny McGovernment and is @65% what private insurers pay. I will guarantee you that the only ones that "adore" them are the ones scamming them.

    Posted by airborne-rgr[/QUOTE]
    Yea. I work at one. Unless it is for emergency type issues. PCP's are turning them away and not accepting those insurances. The hospitals in the state which are heavily leveraged with this type of patient are drowning in red ink. See Saints Memorial in Lowell and Salem Hospital. Several hospitals are now re-thinking Medicare as well because of the lowering of the reimbursement rates in Obama care. The PCP's and hospitals need @85% in private insured patients to even have a shot at making money.

    http://www.wbur.org/2011/05/09/doctors-survey

    "The study also found that while the vast majority of primary care physicians in Massachusetts accepted Medicare, only 53 percent of internists and 62 percent of family physicians accepted MassHealth, the state’s Medicaid plan.

    Only 43 percent of internists and 56 percent of family physicians accepted Commonwealth Care, the state-administered program that provides subsidized care for those earning up to three times the federal poverty level."

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: STUPID Republicans and Cat Scratch Fever : It seems that PCP's are not accepting any new patients. The article doesn't make the correlation that doctors are turning away patients because they have Mass Health. They are turning away ALL new patients. The percentage of doctors who accept Mass Health are about the same since it was introduced in 2005. Specialty doctors accept Mass Health at the same rate as other public insurance, around 90%. The study doesn't equate a patients insurance with doctors turning them away. The reason is, they are not accepting ANY new patients, not just Mass Health. You're making a connection that isn't there.

    It is anecdotal at this point because the latest data was also the first time they asked about the different HC insurance offerings acceptance. If you look at the least likely to accept Masshealth and Commonwealth health, they are the PCP's most people have. They are the Family Medicine, Internists and Pediatrics. That has got to be alarming to anyone looking at the numbers.

    The facility I work for is restructuring the insurance acceptance and the other facilities in the area are doing the same. If they have 5 providers in an office, one will accept Masshealth or Commonwealth health with private, while the other 4 take only private. This is the only way they can survive while taking any "public" HC offerings. If the state and feds continue to put downward pressure on us, those ratios will go up and many practices will stop all together.
