I was at Safeway the other day, and I saw a bumper sticker on a parked car that read,
"I miss Chicago ."

So, I broke the side window, stole the radio, shot out two of the tires, added an Obama bumper sticker, and left a note that read, "I hope this helps!"

While the administration has handed out waiver after waiver and exemption after exemption for the well-connected in Washington, they have done nothing to lower health care costs for families in Michigan," said Dave Camp, chairman of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee.

Camp said the Office of Personnel Management ruling is the "latest proof" of impending failure for the reforms and pledged that Republicans would keep trying to repeal them.

...part of the "grand design" to end up with a single payer system - total government control of health care - according to Harry Reid in a PBS interview recently.

$27 trillion sounds better, as long as we're playing politics.

How many insurance companies and rightwing run companies are taking advantage of the public's ignorance about healthcare reform to hike fees and pass along crappier health plans to employees and then of course blame healthcare reform?
Anyone have an answer for me?
Nearly all States require insurance companies to have their rates approved based upon claim history, expenses, etc...... ;
How can they use a legislation which hasn't been fully implemented to justify a rate hike? Your conclusion doesn't make sense

Don't ever call anyone stupid again.
Just two days ago, it was headline news that members of Congress and their staffs won’t face potentially massive hikes in their health care premiums next year as many had feared because of a clause in President Obama’s health care overhaul.
Pelosi had said members of Congress and their staffs must enroll in the exchanges as required by the law.
Guess the law only applies to us peons and not the elite.
Like cake?
Once again, you're a total moron.
If you have coverage, you are not impacted in the least...except for the refund you'll get if your insurance company spends loads of money on things like salaries and advertising and not patient care.

Do you think its simply an oversight that 2 Cuban American Congressman, Rubio & Ted Cruz, never mention the fact that under the Cuban Adjustment Act, if you're Cuban, you can pay a smuggler to carry you across the Florida Straits and if you make it to US shores, you get to stay....keeping in mind that 1/4 of all Medicare fraud nationwide is committed in S. Florida and 90% of involves nearly arrived Cubans?

YOU aren't even imapcted by the law, nor is anyone that has insurance through their employer, which is most Americans.
