Is it true under Obama care, that when we reach 70 the only care given wil be to be made comfortable and no other additional beneficial quality for life car will be given? What happen to free America?

I'd like to know about immigration and welfare. Can we make welfare recipients a) prove they are citizens, b) have mandatory drug-testing before they get a dime, c) make it harder to get welfare especially for people with big screen TVs, new cars in the driveway and popping out kids at will? Can we make English mandatory and our official language? If they don't like it, they should go back where they came from.

Sharon, no, that is not true. It's a viral lie. A guy called into the Mark Levine show claiming to be a brain surgeon who learned of this "truth" at a conference. The American Association of Nuerological Surgeons investigated and determined the caller was not a neurosurgeon. It was a total hoax.

I'd like to ask the President what he can change to accomplish more bipartisian legislation in his second term. He seemed unable to overcome the bipartisian divide in D.C., and there's a lot of blame being put on Republicans for blocking everything he wanted to do. But if all things remain the same, he needs to do something to overcome that problem. What would that be? I'd like to ask Mr. Romney about a point on his healthcare platform on his website. It says: "Prevent discrimination against individuals with pre-existing conditions who maintain continuous coverage." If I lose my job and my healthcare lapses for a few months, won't I then be unable to secure coverage for my preexisting condition? Isn't that a real concern for people who can't afford COBRA? And isn't it disingenuous to say you'd make sure people weren't excluded from coverage for pre-existing conditions if you hide the qualification that they must have continuous coverage?
