So instead of worrying so much about banning guns, the focus should be on banning gratuitous violence in video games and movies.

why don't you give us details on this silver plan? What is their co-pay? Deductible? And the folks that qualify will most likely still use the er for common illnesses, its what they've been taught.
Most plans have published rates.

Under Covered California, for the Silver plan, the annual deductible is $2000 and the copays are:

Primary care office visit -$45

Specialist office visit -$65

Emergency room visit -$250

This is what a Tea Party controlled government looks like. A government that is preoccupied with regulating sexual relationships, while ignoring poverty, joblessness, crumbling schools, failing infrastructure.
Flat out BS, and if you actually believe this ridiculous, not to mention paranoid propaganda, you really need to question your cognitive intelligence.

In other words it might be time to step away from the Media Matters and Daily Kos type blogs. They're turning you into something that's losing touch with reality.

Read it and weep:
"The eldest of three daughters, Dianne Feinstein was born on June 22, 1933, to Dr. Leon Goldman, a surgeon and professor at the University of California, San Francisco, and Betty (Rosenburg) Goldman. Both of her parents came from Russian immigrant families. The Goldmans were proud of their heritage and could trace their family tree back for generations. Sam Goldman, Dianne’s paternal grandfather, helped to found several temples in California, while his son Leon became a prominent donor to San Francisco’s Mount Zion Synagogue. Dianne’s mother’s family, the Rosenburgs, had a more distant relationship with Judaism. Some of them belonged to the Russian Orthodox church....
She attended a Jewish religious school, but later enrolled at the Convent of the Sacred Heart, a prestigious private Catholic high school, in accordance with her mother’s wishes....
After graduating from Sacred Heart (THE FIRST JEW TO DO SO), she entered Stanford University..."

Must upset you that she is a better Jew than you. After all, "Jews who intermarry are not deeply committed to their religion in the first place."
Read it and weep... Surely you jest? She is an 80 yr. old lieberal, who enjoys spending 'other people's money.

But how will that affect the income of the Hollywood hypocrites who adopt every liberal cause while pimping and promoting violence and promiscuity?

Obama is doing the best he can. Bin Laden is dead. Bush stirred up the dust in the Middle East. He would start a water fight in a desert. His Daddy's War in Iraq is over after many unnecessary casualties. Afghanistan War is winding down and Hillary will take the reins in 2016. Things are looking pretty good on the Democratic side. Poor Republicans lets see how many Tea Party members get re-elected? The Tea Party is like the Green Party a thing of the past.

The premium is NOT $100...stop lying.
The taxpayers are paying the real premium.
I went to "the official cost calculator" of the governments healthcare.gov website and entered some information. Since the young and healthy are a major revenue generator (vs loss), I entered the following information:

Annual income: 24,000
Number of people in family: 1
Age: 27
Non-tobacco user

Here are the results

Household income in 2014: 209% of poverty level

Unsubsidized annual health insurance premium in 2014:$3,163

Maximum % of income you have to pay for the non-tobacco premium, if eligible for a subsidy: 6.61%

Amount you pay for the premium:$1,587 per year which equals 6.61% of your household income and covers 50% of the overall premium)

You could receive a government tax credit subsidy of up to:$1,576
(which covers 50% of the overall premium)

Also, Your out-of-pocket maximum for a Silver plan (not including the premium) can be no more than $5,200 (There's your deductible...$5200)

<quoted text>
my forefathers had been dealing with honorable people until you white folks showed up. call it moral gullibility.
Gullible?

Gullible liberals get their history lessons about Indians from Walt Disney cartoons.

#1 Myth: Indians lived peacefully with each other and lived in harmony with nature. This is idiotic wishful commentary, the Cree and the Blackfoot are traditional blood enemies, as are the Iroquois and Algonquin, as well as the Maya and the Aztec. Indians are no different than anyone else; they frequently fought with their neighbors. If you go to Wikipedia and check the definition of Mohawk [Iroquois], it means eaters of flesh, esp. of the enemy. And they don't mean chickens. That is what we called them savages. Did Indians live in harmony with nature? This is liberal nonsense for members in a primitive society responding to cold winters by freezing, or poor hunting by starving. Nature always wins.

#2 Myth: Indians had great civilizations. In Canada, no Indian tribes developed writing until the white man created a writing system for them. Even today, tribes insist that white people teach, pay for and educate their kids. It is a sad commentary to think that out of 700,000 Indians there are no teachers or elders could teach their own kids unassisted.

One could argue that the Aztecs were great civilization, a civilization that had ritual human sacrifice, religious cannibalism, total slavery of conquered peoples and practice of general mayhem. The happiest people in the world were the Indians conquered by Cortes and the Spaniards.

The Spanish ended human sacrifice. No non Aztec Indian parent wanted to see their children removed and sacrificed to Rac Mool. When the Temple of the Sun Pyramid was dedicated, 70,000 people were sacrificed in 4 days. This is why one million non-Aztec Indians joyfully supported the European “conquest.” However, FYI, the fantastic astronomy of the Mayans was taught to them by the ancient white race!

#3 Myth: Indians were disease-free until the white man brought his diseases. There is no such thing as a white man's disease. Every disease from smallpox to tuberculosis exists in every continent and with every race. What did happen was the disease was identified with the European name. So the Indian disease of “cough that never goes away and eventually kills you” was called tuberculosis by the Europeans. The word “tuberculosis” appeared in the early 1500s, not the disease. FYI, the TB bacterium is founded in bison remains over 10,000 years old and Indian remains over 2000 years old, clearly dispelling the idea of Europeans bring it here to the Americas. If you want any information about diseases, get it from a real microbiologist, not a useless liberal lawyer.

#4 Myth: Indians are hard done by. Really!!! Indians only get: almost total tax freedom, free education, free welfare, free child care services, free Medicare, free dental care, free lawyers, free guns and ammunition, free trips to world conferences, free taxpayer paid bureaucrats paid $400,000, free housing, free publicity, reduced or no sentences for any crimes, free royalties, free land, free research, free language services, free fishing rights, free fishing ships, free hunting rights, free whiney CBC coverage, free baby bonuses, free historical compensation, free (whitewashed) altered histories and free exemption from historical crimes of slavery, genocide, cannibalism and human sacrifice. The total cost of which is $30 Billion or $300,000 per every Indian family every year.[Or more!!]

Real honorable people.

<quoted text>The customer premium/cost whatever__about one half of Florida's 3.5 million uninsured could qualify for a silver plan through the ACA exchange for about $100 per month.
The story is appearing today in newspapers throughout Florida and apparently is also being broadcast in CA on KTLA.
You act as though your tripe is going to make a difference going forward__have you too lost your fkn mind?
I love how you loony left wingers ignore certain words. Lily ignored "supplemental" the other day, and now you are ignoring "about". It's going to be higher than $100 per month (my test came out to $132) and it doesn't include the $5200 out of pocket expenses they will be liable for. Considering there are thousands of clinic that take people regardless of their ability to pay and that other doctors charge as little as $45 per visit, it's a rip off.
