People have been kicked off their plans because the plans didn't meet standards set by Obamacare. In the long run their health coverage will be better. Be patient. I understand how desperate you right wing morons are to be correct about something.

Insurance premiums are doubling, if not tripling. The same is true with deductibles. The $2500 in average savings promised by Barack Obama has grotesquely mutated into a $7500 increase. Meanwhile, up to sixteen million people are losing their health insurance.

Which is why it belongs ONLY in givverment offices, for verification and ID'ing purposes, and NOT (not, NOT!) all mucked up with the free market, breaching HIPPA stnadards on oh-so-hackable public webs!

I'll post it again for you.
After Nixon won the election in 1972, Kennedy began secret negotiations with the White House that almost led to an agreement on a health care plan. Nixon introduced his Comprehensive Health Insurance Act on Feb. 6, 1974. It would've built upon existing employer-sponsored insurance plans and would've provided government subsidies to the self-employed and small businesses to ensure universal access to health insurance. Sadly, the Watergate scandal derailed Nixon and Kennedy's efforts at health care reform.
15 minutes until O'Reilly's talking points and warning. I double dog dare 'ya to watch it.
Post it again 41 years from now and it will be equally irrelevant as it was 41 years ago.

No, they were not underinsured. Their policies just didn't include things that they did not need, like mental health care or abortions.
...and they don't want welfare...
Not so. Their policies are "skimpy high-deductible plans" that don't even cover such things as doctor visits, drug costs or hospital care.
And, if they qualify for a subsidy and opt not to take advantage of it, perhaps they really do need mental health care. At the very least, they shouldn't be complaining about the cost of the plan.

One story behind the story is how blacks have stagnated and worse under the leadership of America's first black president.
Allowing 15 million undocumented immigrants, the vast number being Hispanics, to avoid laws already on the books would be devastating to blacks.
The economy is soaring, all races are finding their lives improving the last five years. Only morons are finding life difficult.

"Intel chief: US spies on allies, they do it, too

By LARA JAKES and JULIE PACE
WASHINGTON (AP)- Facing lawmakers who suggested U.S. surveillance has gone too far, the national intelligence director on Tuesday defended spying on foreign allies as necessary and said such scrutiny of America's friends - and vice versa - is commonplace.
Another top intelligence official said the collection of phone records that prompted outrage across the Atlantic actually was conducted with the help of European governments. News reports that the National Security Agency had swept up millions of phone records in France, Spain and elsewhere were inaccurate and reflected a misunderstanding of "metadata" that was in fact collected by NATO allies and shared with the United States, the director of the NSA told a congressional hearing.
The nation's post-Sept. 11 surveillance programs are coming under increased criticism at home and abroad, capped by recent revelations that the NSA monitored German Chancellor Angela Merkel's cellphone and those of up to 34 other world leaders. Those reports relied on documents provided by former NSA analyst Edward Snowden.
Congressional leaders who have been staunch supporters of the NSA programs are now saying it is time for a close examination. The White House said Tuesday that President Barack Obama had ordered a full review of the programs and was considering changes...."
The phony spy conspirisy is just another right wing desperate attempt to find fault with Obama. Everyone has been spying on everyone else for a hundred years or more. This is just nonsense.

LCN always seems interested in what books I've read. Fact is, I've read so many over the years with many genres, I've forgotten half of them. Only the authors, most of which I remember.
After reading X amount of books, you can't be faulted for not recalling every paragraph, every author and every story line.

But the greater body of reading has a way of building your thought processes over the years, expanding them, reinforcing them and enlightening them.

That's where the fruit grows from.

LCN doesn't bear any fruit but chalks up each next book as another one of his bragging rights.

Did *YOU* read this book? Why not? What's wrong with you? You haven't been initiated into Club Intelligentsia yet, baby:>

I forgot there were idiots like you out there that have to be told the same thing over and over before they're able to get the point of even a simple statement. I stand corrected, moron to moron communication requires multiple postings of the same comment.

Yes, so the car with the young people honked their horn and passed him. Tover was the aggressor, stopping in front of them and getting out of his car. He then pursued the car with the young people and shot into the car. He's guilty. But, he's white and wealthy. The young people were not armed.
If every time a person honks his horn and makes a hand gesture; someone is allowed to shoot into the car; we are in big trouble.

Stop doing the hand gesture thing, lily, and you'll be just fine.
