  1. I was not an advocate for Ryan's bill so pointing out it's low approval ratings (which is correct) doesn't do anything for me. . People are more upset that they no longer have affordable healthcare when just a few short years ago they did. The middle class was hit the hardest by the ACA in more ways than one. Of course that is the class that always gets hit the hardest.
  2. Some say Hooker might slide because of two off season surgeries. How far who knows. Would n't my feelings if he slid to 31. Peppers stock is rising. Mayock had him as the 3rd safety in his top 5 positions a few weeks ago now he is #1. He has the same speed as Hooker, 4.45 40. Either one of them would make me happy if we go safety with our first pick. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000794141/article/mike-mayocks-2017-nfl-draft-position-rankings-20?campaign=tw-cf-sf64633630-sf64633630&utm_source=t.co&utm_medium=referral
  3. I feel that and I posted a link earlier from WasPo that insinuated the same thing. It's more than just paying more, people get upset with their money when other people do not do the right thing. If you take care of yourself and don't shove 20 cheeseburgers a week in your my one might get upset that you have to help pay health costs for someone who does.
  4. I don't think they can just repeal it. The have to have a replacement to go along with it at the same time. For the people that want to fix the ACA they give no real solutions except for pouring more money into it (meaning taxpayer dollars) I don't see that as a fix, but rather as a continuation of the rising premium and deductibles costs. I'd like to her some real solutions, something that would make me climb on board the bandwagon.
  5. Pen isphobia, is that in Pennsylvania? I mean they do have Intercourse PA.
  6. I don't think so. Paul Ryan vows to give it another crack at a healthcare bill. An ACA fix is just trying to shove more taxpayer money into the coffer, that is not a fix, and I don't believe there is a real fix out there. It's hard to fix a redistribution of wealth. http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/house-republicans-will-try-health-care-bill-paul-ryan-says/ https://www.usnews.com/news/national-news/articles/2017-03-28/paul-ryan-vows-to-continue-obamacare-fight
  7. No doubt. If we're there to fight you cannot fight with stringent "rules of engagement" basically tying the military's hands.
  8. More band-aids, more government funding. the ACA needs heart, lung, liver, and kidney transplants. At some point you have to pull the plug. Key House Republicans on healthcare say they want to find a way to fund ObamaCare payments that they previously sued the Obama administration over. The payments, known as cost-sharing reductions, reimburse insurers for providing discounted deductibles for low-income ObamaCare enrollees. If the payments were canceled, insurers warn they could pull out of the market because of the hole left in their budgets, causing chaos. GOP lawmakers previously filed suit against the Obama White House over the payments, arguing they were being made unconstitutionally, without a congressional appropriation. Now, after last week's failure of the House GOP's ObamaCare replacement bill, top Republicans say they realize they need to fund the payments. Providing that funding would go a long way to stabilizing the market and removing a major source of insurer anxiety, though other problems would of course remain. Providing a congressional appropriation for the funds could be a way around the legal argument. “[That is] a $7 billion appropriation we have to figure out how to fund or the plans likely could get canceled,” House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Greg Walden (R-Ore.) said Tuesday. While it remains to be seen if conservatives will object to continuing payments under ObamaCare, Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.), who chairs the Appropriations health subcommittee, likewise indicated Monday night that he thinks the cost-sharing reductions should continue. "You're going to have instability in the market otherwise," Cole said. But he added that no decisions have been made and discussions are going on above his level. He said the spending would either have to come out of mandatory funds or the budget allocation for healthcare would have to be increased.
  9. In that accent...darlink, vill you push moose into squirrel...
  10. There's a joke here and you know what it is...the guy's wife said he get get some new Putin if he had 2 more...
  11. You're not just buying your health insurance anymore, your helping to foot the bill for people who cannot afford it. That's what the the ACA is about, wealth redistribution. Even the left leaning WashpPO says that. That's why many people's premiums and deductibles have double, tripled, and even quadrupled in some cases. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/the-debate-over-the-affordable-care-act-is-really-a-debate-over-wealth-redistribution/2017/03/07/36b7d048-034e-11e7-ad5b-d22680e18d10_story.html?utm_term=.799a119b4ebb
