    There you go again, using your far-right conservative BRITISH paper to complain about Obama (what ever happened to AMERICAN exceptionalism”? No far-right whack job sites to get your links from?).

    And, somehow, a complaint about a FEMA denial relates to private health care how?? Oh maybe because PRIVATE health care makes money by rejecting claims first, but there is a big difference that you missed: “he has since found out his insurance coverage will replace his house”.

    LOL!!! So his house is covered by insurance, but you are complaining he didn’t get a government handout??? From you??? LOL!!! Priceless.

    I’m sorry Mike, but I’m trying to be international and broaden my closeted right-wing horizons and stop reading Free Republic and Glenn Beck for all my sources. (eye roll.)

    As usual, you miss the point completely. The complaint about FEMA is not that FEMA refused to pay for rebuilding their homes, but the REASON why they refused to pay for the rebuilding. Or did you miss this:

    “Three days after the visit, however, he received a letter reading: ‘Based on your FEMA inspection, we have determined that the disaster has not caused your home to be unsafe to live in.

    ‘Although the disaster may have caused some minor damage it is reasonable to expect you or your landlord to make these repairs. At this time you are not eligible for FEMA housing assistance.’

    Um. Mike. FEMA didn’t say that “You have homeowners insurance that will cover your completely destroyed house and therefore not in need of FEMA assistance in doing so.” No Mike, the letter told them that the INSPECTION of their house by a FEMA inspector, the house that was pretty much leveled, determined that their was only “minor” damage.

    How does this have anything to do with health care? EVERYTHING. Because the government, more often than not, is COMPLETELY INCOMPETENT. And the answer of putting them in charge of more and more things, throwing the massive federal bureaucracy into people’s health care will generate more and more brilliant determinations from said bureaucrats. There is a reason fewer and fewer private doctors and hospitals are refusing to take (or take any more) Medicare/Medicaid patients…

    As I said, your health care will be in the best of hands.
