NOAA has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for most of Eastern to Northeastern CO.

Isolated tornadoes are also possible but the main threats according to them will be hail and damaging winds.

Are you FOR emergency room health care service for the uninsured? Do you believe that is a cheaper way to care for these people? Or, should we just let them die?
It can't possibly be more boring than listening to you apologize for the Boy Messiah's screw-ups and engaging in Bush-Bashing.

Try adding a little spice to your BS and swallow some lit firecrackers tonight.

Bush’s actions were unprecedented. During every previous major war in American history, presidents demanded sacrifices from rich and poor alike. As Robert Hormats explains in his 2007 book, The Price of Liberty: Paying for America’s Wars,“During most of America’s wars, parochial desires–such as tax breaks for favored groups or generous spending for influential constituencies–have been sacrificed to the greater good. The president and both parties in Congress have come together &#133; to cut nonessential spending and increase taxes.”Check this out: http://www.forbes.com/2009/11/25/shared-sacri...

Time's up. Bruce Bartlett was Reagan's economic czar and adviser, not a 'socialist'. Read my post again carefully and the following link to the Bartlett article.

The IRS has become the Enforcers for the Magic Negro Mafia. Obamacare is a Protection Racket that makes all Americans an offer that they can't refuse. Even Judge Roberts says so.

Your innocence and naivete are so warm, cuddly and cute! It draws us back to a time of Fairy Tales and Masked Heroes.

You are hunting for saints and sinners to buttress your political fantasies. So do Forbes and other for-profit media outlets because conflict and controversy sell. Always have. Always will.

Yellow journalism is alive and well.

Yer Bartlett dood is a loose canon with a few loose screws. He was pro Supply-Side and now he's against it? Some of the people who support his schizophrenic behavior are high society crooks. For example, Robert Hormats is a well connected wine-and-croissants jerk who was formerly Vice Chairman of Goldman Sachs and then traipsed all through the U.S. Government kissing butts. At one point, he violated SEC Rules by opening his big mouth to investors about a Chinese move that had not yet taken place.

A perfect world does not exist and this means that those people in it are not perfect. You are painting in Black & White while the rest of us are painting in 64 million colors.

Time for you to fall back and reconnoiter. In daylight.

One man's Gutter is another man's Oracle.

To you, the Red Book of Mao might be an Oracle while history has shown it to be a Gutter.

Idiot
The exact OPPOSITE occured in CA which has already begun enrollment in gov't exchanges.
No premium increass.
The majority of Americans won't be affected at alk.
Wrong again, Nobama
Obama’s healthcare reform will increase individual-market premiums by as much as 146 percent in California, despite state officials’ claim that it would lower them.

New data shows that premium rates would only decrease for small employer plans, but that the rates charged to individuals will increase, according to Peter Lee, the executive director of the Covered California, the state’s new health insurance exchange.

State officials last week boasted that its version of Obamacare would serve as a “home run for consumers in every region of California,” Lee explained. But the numbers generate a different narrative – one that depicts the flaws of the Affordable Care Act.

Due to its overwhelming number of regulations and mandates, Obamacare may increase the cost of health insurance for those who purchase it on their own, argues Forbes contributor Avik Roy. A 25-year-old non-smoking male, for example, is given only the catastrophic healthcare plan as the cheapest option. This Covered California plan has monthly premiums averaging $184. The second-cheapest plan, called the “bronze” plan, costs $205 a month.

In comparison, the median cost of the five cheapest healthcare plans for the same individual was $92 per month in 2013. For the typical 25-year-old Californian male buying his own insurance, premiums will be 100 to 123 percent more expensive when Obamacare is fully implemented, Lee told Forbes.

Californians over the age of 30 do not have the option to acquire the cheapest plan, and must instead purchase the “bronze” or more expensive packages. A non-smoking 40-year-old on the “bronze” plan will on average be required to pay $261 a month.

Overall, individual-market premiums would increase by 64-146 percent, and an average of 116 percent.

The numbers starkly contradict the statements made by state officials and President Obama himself. Earlier this month, the president said that “whenever insurance premiums go up, you’re being told it’s because of Obamacare – even though there’s no evidence that that’s the case.”

The guy that is in charge of the exchange says you are a liar. Ha ha ha.
