You will see over the next months a lot of talk about McCain as a hero and a maverick. But for now I want to talk about medical. McCain has a nasty brain cancer, a glioblastoma, that spreads fast. His odds are not good and between the chemo and the radiation treatments the amount of normal life he has left is probably not much.

Oddly enough, if my cancer treatment works, and it will be 5 weeks before I get that answer, it would have probably worked for McCain too. And that’s another discussion.

But what really counts is that McCain is a yes vote for Trumpcare and if McCain were an ordinary person and Obamacare were repealed McCain would be denied care. So while McCain gets the second best treatment available, he would vote to take that away from the rest of us. America might be better off if McCain doesn’t make it.

I would ask the question, is McCain’s like worth the damage he will do to America in the future? Is his life worth more than those who will die from being denied health care? That’s worth a conversation.

    You have it backwards. Mccain wuld be denied care with ObamaCare death panels when the IPAB is fully implemented. So controversial, they put in special provisions declaring this cannot be repealed like all other laws. Architect of ObamaCare Ezekiel declared no care for people over 75. You are just 15 years away, and would likely be affected by IPAB if HillaryCare had passed. Obama himself complained that too much money is spent on the last six years of life. Would expensive cancer treatments to 60 year olds be worth the cost of providing less care to others?

  2. bobbo, we think with words and flower with ideas says:

    You come real close. But McCain is not THE issue. Rather, he is just an example of the the issue: ALL TRUMPCARE VOTERS are doing the same thing.

    Its across the board though, just varying by degree. The greatest show on Earth: 435 +100 + 2 Ass hats pretending to “work” for America when its just a huge Ponzi scheme to transfer money to themselves, either directly or thru pay offs from the AlreadyTooRich.

    ………and all with the help of idiots wanting to deflect the issues to Obamacare.

    OBAMACARE WORKS…………….. where dumbo’s are in charge and actually want it to work. It doesn’t work where PUKES continue their 8 year effort to destroy Obama, regardless of what it does to the country.

    Ass……………….. Hats. Republican “leadership” the worst of all.

    • Dr. No says:

      Are you paranoid? You rarely get things right any more. And you’re getting worse. But maybe a Ponzi scheme is in the works. Explain please.

      Brain diarrhea?

      BTW, Obama is irrelevant. And every single day, libs try to destroy Trump, “regardless of what it does to the country.”

      • bobbo, we think with words and flower with ideas says:

        My reference to Ponzi scheme is to our economics as a whole with the growing National Debt….which like a Ponzi scheme is giving unwarranted benefits to current beneficiaries that will ultimately fail to be provided to future beneficiaries….either by cuts in benefits or high inflation…… just like always.

        Nothing paranoid about it. Sure that is the right concept you are thinking of?

  3. Glenn says:

    Obamacare Fails in that it prices out the people who pay for those that are on it. The middle class Taxpayer. Health care insurance alone takes 30% of my total income, how much does it take of yours bobbo?

    • bobbo, we think with words and flower with ideas says:

      Glenn: can you identify specifically how it is you pay so much? Do you have any idea what it would be without Obamacare??

      ALL TO THE POINT: everyone would get better and cheaper healthcare if we went single payer====>just like the rest of the freaking world.

      I have no problem with my percent. It means nothing, but if you answer above and ask again, I’ll give it.

      • MikeN says:

        We were told ObamaCare would make health care better and cheaper. Now that that lie has been revealed, they come back with a new lie that you need single payer to make things better. Making things worse to try and sell single payer was the plan all along.

  4. MarcoB says:

    We can’t waste time thinking about Mr. McCain issue, because politicians use their own WeAreBetterPeopleHealthCare.

    Since we are talking about IA, and how it has to be controlled before it can evolve and kill us. I would love to feed IBM Watson with how health care was before and after Obamacare. See if can come up with a health care system that could really help people since humans are corrupt and can’t do that.

    I’m old enough to know that when I get to the point where I’m a burden to my family or society I’m taking the Soylent Green way out.

    • bobbo, we think with words and flower with ideas says:

      Really? When you find such a service… two tickets.

      I’ll gladly reimburse you next Wednesday.

      • spsffan says:

        It’s easy enough. Go to Yosemite, plug in your ear buds to the music of your choice, lay down in the meadow, swallow a bottle of Tylenol. Wait.

        • bobbo, we think with words and flower with ideas says:

          For grins, I googled. Tylenol OD would not be my way. Too easy to throw up and be left with painful liver disease.

          I post because California just passed a physician assisted suicide bill where docs are allowed to prescribe death drugs. Haven’t come across yet what they are using…….but I doubt its Tylenol.

          I don’t like the idea of leaving my body around for others to find. No dignity. Thats why I’m for the Soylent Green solution.

          Still a few years left for that all to be figured out……..or not…….as No Death Panel = No Hope.

      • Mr Diesel - Libertarian says:

        No problem bobbo, I’d be happy to front you the money.

  6. Mr Diesel - Libertarian says:

    But of course.

    Please use English.

  7. kerpow69 says:

    How would he be denied health care because of no insurance? Do you realize that health insurance is not health care? My God, you act as if health care didn’t exist until insurance companies invented it. They just made it unaffordable by introducing a profit scheme to health care.

    • bobbo, we think with words and flower with ideas says:

      Dying from cancer is NOT an emergency, so if you can’t pay for your care up front, you won’t get healthcare, except for the terminal event of whatever stops working and then you qualify to be kept unconscious on a respirator for another six months.

      Makes sense doesn’t it?

      Hence: insurance.

  8. NewFormatSux says:

    >and if McCain were an ordinary person and Obamacare were repealed McCain would be denied care.

    The Phoenix clinic doesn’t accept any ObamaCare plans. McCain is only allowed to go there(other than paying out of pocket) because Congress got an illegal exemption, where they are enrolled in the small business exchange, another of Obama’s illegal actions.

  9. Hope you’re doing good, I want to mention one another thing,
    we are supporting the cause to remove Thalassemia .
