  • ' in her forties, she already had the breast cancer spread from her breast to one of the lymph nodes. It was a screening mammogram that saved her life. She has had three operations, two bouts of chemotherapy. As a result, she is a survivor-6 years later'

  • 'But this piece of legislation says: No, no, do not worry about it. There is not going to be any denial of care. There is not going to be anything like that. But if you turn to page 1,150, it talks specifically about this preventative task force, specifically saying when they make their recommendations there is going to be money that taxpayers are going to pay to tell people what those recommendations are. Then, if you go to page 1,190, it says that if it is not approved, they will deny payment for that service-deny payment'

  • Why is it hyperbole when it's a republican, but when a democrat says something with spin it's legitimate? I never see you calling out the left, sriveroc. Isn't that hypocrisy?

  • Anyone who doesn't think there will be rationing has got to be smoking crack. There is NO way the gov can support this.
