With a Covered California silver plan, that first office visit will cost a $45 copay, with the balanced of the cost going toward the $2000 annual deductible. Surely they will line up at the door...or at least they should compared to the $90 urgent care copay or the $250 emergency room copay...

The national average for ULR could be under $3.00 by the end of this year. I paid $3.15.9 last week.
California residents pay through the nose because of all the special fuel blends and the inability to build new refineries.

That is too funny. Hell, if they want a plan that limits their choice of doctors, why not just call around until you find a doctor that charges $45 for cash patients (with or without insurance) and save the premium.

So, you think people who are rich should pay less of a percentage of their income so they can get richer. Got it. Sounds pretty much like the Republican agenda to me. Gets us back to that Fall of Rome scenario.

exactly...and cash talks...

now, they will argue that if one is super poor, there is further taxpayer assistance with copays and deductibles...but those folks are probably eligible for Medicaid where they would pay nothing...

Ken Lay never served a day in prison and his conviction was vacated...
do you really live in a dump like Elmont???
just curious...
He never served a day in priso because he died first. Which is exactly why his conviction was vacated. It was vacated on merit

Former Enron Chairman Ken Lay's criminal conviction was vacated and his indictment dismissed by a judge today.

U.S. District Judge Sim Lake granted the request by Lay's estate to vacate the conviction, an outcome that was widely anticipated given legal precedent. He also dismissed the indictment used to bring him to trial earlier this year.

Lay died July 5, just weeks after a jury found him guilty on six charges of conspiracy and fraud and Lake found him guilty on four charges of bank fraud.

In his decision, Lake cited a decision in the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals that makes death, before the appeals process has been exhausted, grounds for throwing out a conviction and dismissing an indictment.

The Department of Justice tried to trump that precedent, however, when it asked Congress in early September to pass a law that would essentially prevent courts from vacating criminal convictions if a defendant dies before going through the entire appeals process.

are you really as stupid as you seem, using half truths to make your ignorant asinine posts

I'm telling you dude, you should use Jimmy Taggert not John Galt. But then, I'm assuming you actually know Who is John Galt and personally I don't think you're that literate.

"Inability to build new refineries". Bull. The oil companies don't want to build refineries. In fact, they have been closing them down.

"From 1985 to 1995, 10 California refineries closed, resulting in a 20 percent reduction in refining capacity." Do you remember who the presidents were during that time? We have 20 refineries (9 less than Texas) I would say that is enough.

Nov 7, 2012(Reuters)- Alon USA Energy Inc plans to shut down its California refineries for a year due to high costs of imported oil, further cutting the state's already depleted capacity to make fuel.

Chief Executive Paul Eisman said on Wednesday Alon intends to restart the 94,000 barrel per day system, which comprises three plants in Bakersfield, Paramount and Long Beach, in the fourth quarter of 2013 at the earliest."

Now, there is your problem. No regulation of oil companies.

seriously Dude, considering the history of the U.S. I don't think you want to go down that path. When talking about racially motivated attacks, I'm pretty sure the number of whites attacking blacks dwarfs the number of blacks attacking whites.

Israel being the enemy of course.

Just ask the crew of the USS Liberty
or how about those secrets to our nuclear sub force Israel got from Pollard and sold to the Russians. The damage they did do our nuclear deterent force was the worse in our history.

or we could ask the Marines of the 22nd MAU, well except for 241. Israel knew the attack was coming and how it was going to happen. They even had the license plate number of the truck used.
