(Also, are you certain its all fed Pell grants? I know in addition to Pell, I qualify for a state grant as well)
Wait, were you replying to the hypothetical "omg romney offended me b/c i am a woman" part of Cometstarlight's post? Because if so, I misconstrued what you were saying and apologize. Though it really did look as if you were replying to her personal opinion, and that's how I responded.
Totally agreed. Is there a reason PP has to be the place for people to get this care?It's a good resource for a lot of people. The more places for preventative care, the better in the long run.
If they have Medicaid, they can make an appointment in a place that accepts Medicaid. ERs are only legally obligated to stabilize anyone who comes in needed emergent care. People can, do, and should be turned away if they are walking into an ER with insurance for non-emergency reasons such as STI/STD screenings.Exactly. Most of them are on Medicaid, meaning the taxpayers are paying for it either way. Do you have any idea how many people come into hospital EDs for things like STD/STI testing because they're on Medicaid? A whole hell of a lot, I can tell you that.
PP makes tons of money as it is right now. In adddition to insurance and govt money, they do have a bunch of private donors as well. They hold fundraisers all the time.I know it's not government-run. Many hospitals are for-profit. At least, some of the ones around here are. Not many, but some. They have to act like businesses in order to keep running. Even the ones that are nonprofit have to make money in order to keep running. I highly doubt Planned Parenthood would be able to make enough money, considering the kinds of people they target for healthcare, to keep running.
And you know he wants to replace "health care" with vouchers how?Romney's idea of repealing the affordable health care act and replacing it with vouchers
As for your bolded comments:
You missed the point. Clinton had a hostile Congress, one much crazier than this one, and still got things done. What's Obama's excuse?They didn't like him after he had the office affair, people need to look past that.
And how exactly is Obama planning to do that?For one, how he plans on bringing jobs back to americans.
Neither has Obama, chief.Romeny has yet to state how he will.
None of these are actual, in depth ways of how he'd implement policies. This is just a list of stuff he wants to happen.Obama's primary plan for job growth more exports, more U.S.-produced energy including natural gas, more support for education
It's like saying I'd like a yummy sandwich, but no plan on how to get one.
So to put it bluntly: What is Obama's plan for "more exports, more US based produced energy, more support for education?"
Okay, what taxes does he want to raise?reducing the deficit by raising taxes on the wealthy.
And just to put a damper on this whole "Obama is a warrior for the middle class!" love fest going on, you know his entire treasury department is filled with Wall Street fat cats, right? They've made all these supposed Wall Street reforms absolutely worthless and meaningless, all from within the administration. Man, talk about a tool for the upper 1%.
