Back in history, wasn't it a campaign theme "A chicken in every pot?"I like Harry Reid but I am not a resident of Nevada.
It would be crazy for Nevada to throw away the influence they have in Senator
Reid. A new republican senator would have little say in getting the things done
that Nevada needs.
I think Sue Lowden meant 'Haggle' or negotiate a price for medical procedures
instead of 'barter.' Bartering is all well and good, if we did not have a form
of currency in America. Offering goods and services, like painting a
house, for medical help will also make many people indebted to a nurse, doctor,
etc indefinitely. i.e. can you imagine the chickens needed for a heart
transplant? This is why we have currency. And health insurance to help
keep those cost's 'down'. (Not saying it's working, but we're making
progress) It's no wonder Lowden's numbers have suffered. Her chronic,
unwavering support of bartering for services, when America has currency is a cry
far back in our history. I think we have done better than that. Reid is a better choice.
pburt--Let's see. We have one of the highest unemployment rates in
the nation (if not the hightest), the worst housing market in the nation, little
in the way of federal stimulus funds sent our way, a failing school system
(second largest school district in the nation), blah blah blah. I am a
registered democrat, and for the life of me can't see one thing his seniority
has done for us. Apparently, our senate majority leader has "little say in
getting the things done that Nevada needs."I am not a fan of Lowden,
but I am also tired of hearing that we have to keep Reid because of his
seniority and how it will hurt us to lose it. How, exactly?
I agree she was trying to make a point that people used to pay what the market
could bear. I'll expand that it's insurance companies that have removed the free
market mechanizms that could have controlled prices since now we rarely know
what a visit will cost before or while we are recieving the service.I'd love to give my doctor $7 a visit (price of a chicken).Even
so, this is reality and making fun of the chicken statement is a play straight
out of the republican play book. I+t ain't nice but sometimes I say hit em' back
with thier own misery.
I’m wonderin’, if Sue Lowden Wins, Can we pay her salary in
All of the IDIOTS who want to joke about this need to look at their history and
get some synaptic activity happening in their brains!!!SHE IS RIGHT!!!My father was the first OB/GYN to locate to Reno in the early 1960's (Raymond
E. Stone, MD -Princeton + Columbia Univ. Med School... check it out if you can
figure out how to operate 'Google')Even after he died in 1970, we
continued to receive "payments" from people that didn't have the means to pay
cash... and YES... They DID bring chickens!So anybody that is ignorant
enough to harass her over this should just hang their heads in shame as they
offer her apologies!Then, after the liberals finish taking all of our
freedoms, and leave us in a Socialist state, you can thank her for giving you
the idea that will be about the only way you can get medical help beyond your
