The press release makes no mention of the nearly 400 advertisers who refuse to run ads on Beck’s television program, according to StopBeck.com and others.

Beck’s ratings have decreased dramatically as of late as well: “Year over year he posted the biggest loss of any cable news show averaging 1.8 million viewers, down 39% from January 2010,” according to Business Insider. “In 25-54 demo he dropped 48%, to 397,000.”

Deadline.com piled on to that with updated figures last week: “First-quarter cable ratings were released today, and Fox News Channel’s Glenn Beck had the steepest declines again among cable news programs. The show from the polarizing talk-show host, whose future at Fox News beyond this year is uncertain, drew 1.9 million viewers, down 30% from 1Q 2010, and 462,000 in the 25-54 demo, down 37%. Still, Beck dominated his 5 PM slot and ranked as the fourth top-rated cable news program.”

Glenn Beck is consistently 3rd highest rated program on cable news. Still. He's moving on. This is exciting for people who are desperate to spin this into his demise. spin.

Uninsured doesn't mean no healthcare. Nice of you to try. Thanks for playing. :)

Yeah it does. The only time they can get healthcare is in the ER. Which either jacks up premiums for you and I, or the tax payers foot the bill. Either way, you pay for it. So being anti-social medicine is about as fundamentally dumb as you can be.

So uninsured people are barred from walking into a Dr's office and paying for it out of pocket. (you know, like the millions of people do that choose not to have insurance, and the rest of the insured that have deductibles do?)

don't try and pass off your fundamentally dumb award. you wear it well.

Yes they are barred from it because they can not afford it. If they could afford to pay for GP visits, then they sure as hell could afford to pay for insurance themselves. Way to shit on America.

Amid shutdown drama, Rep. Brown invites lawmakers on a boutique shopping trip

April 6, 2011, 1:40 pm by Christina Wilkie

With a government shutdown looming, Capitol Hill was a pretty serious place on Wednesday afternoon.

But for Rep. Corrine Brown (D-Fla.), what better way to ease the tension than with a congressional ladies personal shopping trip in Arlington, Va.?

According to an email from Brown’s scheduler titled, “Outing with Congresswoman Corrine Brown,” staff member Cathy Gass invited Brown’s fellow female Congressional Black Caucus members to join the lawmaker at a boutique in Crystal City, Va. on Wednesday afternoon.

According to the email, which was addressed to “CBC Schedulers,” Brown “would like to invite the woman [sic] CBC Members to go shopping with her at Daniel’s Boutique this afternoon after votes.

Please let me know if your Member is interested and I will inform the Congresswoman.”

Gass also suggests that for members who “would like to share [their] dress size, the boutique can pull some items for them to have available once they arrive.”

For those unfamiliar with the ultra high-end service, pulling clothes that a client might like before they arrive is better known as personal shopping.

According to the shop’s website, Daniel’s Boutique was founded in 1988 and “specializes in wardrobe consulting and custom tailoring.”

A visit to the boutique’s website revealed plenty of the skirt and jacket combinations popular with lawmakers.

A spokesman for Brown declined to comment on the shopping trip.​

Congress Members are the new Rockstars! :fly:

I work for a medical practice, when a potential patient without insurance calls to make an appointment, they are considered a self-pay and we work out a rate they pay up front. Now we're a specialty and we charge more than GP's, our self pay patients can afford us. I'm not saying every practice runs like this, but it's like anything else, you shop around to find something you can afford. Sure it might mean you are limited in your choices, but that kind of goes along with being poor. If you're poor you probably can't afford private schools, fancy houses or nice cars either.

lol. It's so easy for you to jump to conclusions outside of reality.

& I love your jump from if you don't pay for everything everyone else wants to you're shitting on America.

When you don't care about 50+ million of your fellow countrymen not having access to healthcare, then yes, yes you are shitting on America. You just keep right on thinking that your country is going to go anywhere with your current ideology. I'll just be sitting back here laughing at you guys..

How disgusting that you think healthcare is a luxury.

Actually yes. Currently, most people cannot get a primary care physician because most do not accept Medicaid.

But Medicaid patients have an additional hurdle: in 2008, only 42% of U.S. primary-care doctors accepted new patients covered by the program, due to its low reimbursement rates and other factors. By contrast, 61% of primary-care doctors reported accepting new Medicare patients and 84% accepted all or most privately insured patients, according to CSHSC.

House Republicans huddled late Monday and, according to a GOP aide, gave the speaker an ovation when he informed them that he was advising the House Administration Committee to begin preparing for a possible shutdown. That process includes alerting lawmakers and senior staff about which employees would not report to work if no agreement is reached.

But it's a much more complicated issue than you're making it out to be. It isn't simply, "shits too expensive, down with money hungry doctors!" Your issue isn't with healthcare per se, it's with health INSURANCE, which is completely different. Insurance compaines are crippling the healthcare industry, and that's just the true reality here. I mean, if you could step down from your high horse for a second and maybe actually see what's really going on then we can have a discussion, otherwise I'll just leave you to your anit-American ranting on the internet.
