Between this and the pig virus meat products are going to continue to skyrocket. Bacon prices are astronomical for decent bacon or ham right now let’s hope we don’t see rising chicken and egg costs too
O'-THE KINGOD/DIKATATOR: "EVERYTHING IS GOING TO SKYROCKET!!"

The surveys are paperless sent to you on your electronic medical record file with your provider. Questions asked are how long did the provider spend with you, do you feel like they were listening? Did they order tests, were you prescribed drugs were you seen promptly etc. I’m actually happy they’re doing this as many Medicaid fraudsters will be put out of business doing this. I’m talking providers not patients who steal from the system.

It’s not just Medicaid it’s the medical trend. Medicine is a business this is now common practice to pay for patient satisfaction. I’d much rather have them do this than make poor people even unhappier. I don’t know a single person jumping for joy to be impoverished or sick. Google patient satisfaction studies it’s all corporate medicine now. Patients want a doctor to listen to take notes order tests and prescribe meds and sit down and make eye contact during their interaction. I spent a semester on this garbage in pre med school it’s unfortunately the reality even though it makes no one healthier.

Welcome to liberal logic it’s the only way they ever win elections. The same questions every campaign cycle “abortion, gays, illegals, welfare, global warming then repeat” it’s the only way they win by focusing on non issues things that hold zero relevance. Why not have our side use the same tactics? I dare anyone to ask Hillary when life begins or exactly what stage abortion becomes murder or if gays are born that way why she was for don’t ask don’t tell and attends Christian church services?!
HorseCrazy... I agree, those questions should be asked. I do not understand what the hell is wrong with Republicans that they refuse to ask all those dirty little questions? WHY?? Even Romney had Odumbo and refused to go the entire way and destroy him in the last debate. Romney gave Obama the election in that debate..

I live with a disease that puts me in my states category for physician assisted suicide. I live everyday in pain that can only be described as being set on fire. I will not utilize the option because I’m a Catholic who feels like if I’m breathing God is not done with me yet. I can very easily however see why people do use the option. Unfortunately I believe this article demonstrates what a slippery slope it truly is.
Oregon's state medicare/medicaid plan includes EAS as a covered 'treatment' for cancer. I'd bet that wasn't shown to voters when they approved murder by doctor.
"doctor assisted suicide" condemns two souls to hell.

I understand what you’re saying a frankly your grandmother should’ve received care that provided the medication to make her comfortable until she died a natural death. Whether we Americans here realize it or not out private insurance companies do the exact same things. Mine refuses to pay for my effective seizure drugs putting me at risk of stroke and death every month. They try and dictate my care to my doctor. Unless you are a billionaire who can pay cash for every medical intervention in your lifetime, someone along the line will dictate bad medicine in the name of managed care. The bottom line always trumps the patients life it’s truly sad

She’s Canadian I’m assuming from the name which means socialized medicine

No charges better be filed against the nice rough and ready couple that stopped to help. Stop cutting semi trucks off and you won’t have one run into you it’s a pretty simple piece of driving knowledge. What worthless scum assaults an older person that way what a coward.

I keep rewatching the 1970′s Patton movie lately where he says if generals are supposed to be politicians the military will no longer be a place for him. Our brave men and women are being thrown to the wolves by these politicians, politicians in uniform and those elected. God bless her. It is truly heart breaking.

What’s regrettable is that he even has to respond to these idiots. Why do we consider social media commentary legitimate outrage when the majority of posters on social media sites are morons. They are made up of bored teenagers and liberals too lazy to be working so instead they go around typing nonsense. Let’s just start agreeing social media isn’t where the voting hardworking taxpayers hang out.

Funny thing is the towing lady could look exactly like miss espn if she had 20,000$ to blow at the plastic surgeon like miss espn did.
EXACTLY. Miss ESPN is only 2 steps out of the trailer park herself. You can see it on her, either she was raised in one or her parents were. No offense to trailer park folks: there are plenty of really nice ones, but that ain't the kind Britt came from.

Random off topic thought but as a woman who loves sports and has two close relatives playing in the NFL & MLB, I’m fed up with these Erin Andrews type dim bulbs they’re injecting into sports casting. Women also like sports. We don’t want to watch uniformed brainless twits asking questions or “reporting”. I much prefer male sports castors and ex players filling the jobs than bimbos with boob jobs
It's eye candy. Most of the cheerleaders are too young to focus on them, and the network needs some cheese to boost viewership.

God bless that little girl that stood up for those people. How on earth can you expect to win hearts and minds to freedom when you sit and bad mouth perfect strangers? That old woman is a disgusting vile pig.
There is not way to win the hearts and mind of someone that wants to KILL YOU. Sorry to bother You with useless facts.
We will NEVER win the hearts and minds of the savage, demonic Muslim. Their Book of the Dead, aka, the Quran, demands that all non Muslims either be converted or killed. The so-called "moderate Muslim DOES NOT EXIST! The followers of the pedophile prophet are ALL willing to die for their demon. WAKE THE F#@* UP!
 April 16, 2015 at 8:32pm
We shouldn’t be importing any Muslim from any country and I’m not sure why we keep importing all these third world freaks when there’s huge waiting lists of nice educated freedom loving people ready to come here raise families contribute and pay taxes. Liberal utopia is a land where common sense no longer dwells
 April 16, 2015 at 8:28pm
Stop importing Muslim welfare affirmative action lunatics into this country. Start adding only those from nations who subscribe to our belief system you know freedom hard work etc like the nice fillipino folks who have nursing degrees or Indian kids that are tech wizards who don’t suck our welfare dollars have multiple brides on welfare and carry out jihad against the nice country that let their worthless behinds in. Wouldn’t it be nice if we had common sense immigration?
April 12, 2015 at 3:22pm
I’m fed up with stories claiming to be news that all start the same, someone is offended by someone else’s words. Get over it. Grow up grow a pair good grief. This is not news nor is any story that starts with someone’s “hurt feelings”.

If you’re not emotionally equipped to watch American Sniper you are not emotionally equipped to take my tax dollars in the form of student loans. What a wimpy society of fainting violets we live in.

Why must everyone complain to “authority” about everyone else!? If smelling like lavender so much as helps this kid not get homesick I’m fine with it. So fed up with the whiners in society ruining everyone else’s day. There’s a special hell for cowards like those who complained about this special needs child.
Interesting comment, HorseCrazy.
What Bible passage do you use to substantiate that "special hell" theory?
A lot of people have allergic and sometimes simply stomach turning reactions to smells. It's not just 'oh we find it unpleasant'.

I have lupus and seizures because of it. I won’t fly commercial anymore. I’m sorry for this lady it’s bad enough being sick even wise when ignorant morons make your life worse. Why a Drs note? Somehow the magic dr note prevents cancer from impacting her flight? Bigger risk of random passengers having a heart attack or pulmonary embolism than cancer complication on the flight.
 April 8, 2015 at 7:44pm
I loathe elections it’s always about the same story what about women’s rights? gays? Free everything? Open borders? If not you are … Fill in blank with favorite liberal slogan of the week.
