And let me remind you that evangelicals is just another word for Protestants - versus Catholics.
So Catholics can get subsidized Medicare and college loans but not Protestants?
Really, Galt, time for some serious backtracking on your part.
Unlike evangelicals, the majority of Protestants do not believe than one must be "born again" and do not believe in literal interpretation of the Bible.

The enrollment in Obamacare are in single digits.
The system is collapsing all over the place.
People are getting booted from their insurance.
People are figuring out that Lord Obama lied to them for years.
So what does the Socialist/Democrat Senate do?
NOW is the time to roll out a badly-written Gay Rights in the Workplace bill!
Don't look behind the curtain! Look over here-- remember the Republicans hate gays! Republicans are EVIL!
Get ready for a hastily-written environmental bill, a completely unnecessary Women's Rights bill,...
Well, you got two things right...Republicans hate gays and Republicans are EVIL.

FACT: "700,000 people (including medicaid enrollment) have applied for insurance plans in both the 36 states that are using a federally run health care exchange and the 14 states running their own exchanges."

FACT: The healthcare.gov website is getting better and is fixable.

FACT: The majority of those being "booted" off their healthcare plan because their plans changed after the law was enacted, will have better coverage.

FACT: Obama did not "lie". Under the terms of the Affordable Care Act, if you like your insurance plan, you can keep it. As they always did, insurance companies retained their right to change or cancel your plan.

Plans available in California vary by county...
Galt used Riverside County...
For your criteria, the cost of platinum plans are as follows:
Anthem Blue Cross -$1423/month
Kaiser Permanente -$1382/month
These plans have no deductibles, but have significant copays and charge 10% of hospital costs up to an annual maximum of $4000.
Change the age to 64 and the premiums are:
Anthem Blue Cross -$1796/month
Kaiser Permanente -$1850/month
I used Temecula, CA. Recheck your figures using someone who is 55 years old.
yep

The republican division is enjoyable to watch on thread.
We won Virginia Gov race as a result
You can thank your closet liberal pal, Galt, for that.

He's just about pushed me completely out from under the tent we both used to share and I'm thinking about looking for the one that has Independent on it.

They probably don't turn on their own because of personal and private beliefs.

That thought crossed my mind before, however. If Republicans don't start speaking up soon with the right message and if we lose another election because of petty differences, I'm switching parties. Galt's just helping me make that decision sooner.

Great point about the self esteem problem. Lois, Galt and the other right wing losers here on Topix are all intolerant fanatics. When you lose, the first thing fanatics do is look at everywhere but at themselves to explain why they lost. These morons actually believe that they can keep doing the same thing over and over and get a different result. Losing is never their fault. Fanatics won't budge, they just whine, bicker and keep losing.

Republicans do not hate gays.

Republicans aren't evil.

The odds this law will ever see the light of day are looking slimmer and slimmer.

Obama did lie.

Just to correct your misleading statements.

I'm done with this, Galt. It sounds to me like you are struggling with your own personal spiritual issues. But that's something only you and God can work out.

But I'm done talking about this.

Over 80% are going on Medicaid. All you libtards have created is another taxpayer sucking program. Young people are not signing up. A disaster for Obamacare. You cannot force people to buy something they do not want or need. Libtard logic!!!!!

Outside of the phony identify you have tried to sell us,
Do You even have a GED?
Look up how chickens are raised....
Already said I'm ashamed to call myself a human being when other human beings treat animals so heartlessly and cruelly. They'd do the same to fellow human beings.

I hate that fisherman catch fish and don't kill them immediately and put them on ice.

Even animals treat other animals more humanely when killing for food.

What do you propose you and I do to stop this kind of cruelty? Because I'll do whatever you say. Seriously.

You're welcome to join us under the Democratic tent if you just sit quietly and pull the lever beside the picture of the donkey.

Take your argument up with Martin Luther, the Catholic monk who broke away from the Roman Catholic Church and coined the term "Evangelical" which was derived from euangelion, a Greek word meaning "good news", i.e. "Gospel."
Martin Luther also began what is called Protestantism today.
Maybe you have a better understanding than Martin Luther, however, and I'd be delighted to hear it. Please.
The word Evangelicals, as described by the National Association of Evangelicals would not include many US Protestant denominations, including my own. It's not a tricky word babe__like Christian__which is frequently abused by Evangelicals.

Seniors who pocket a little cash doing menial jobs working at golf clubs and restaurants, etc., to supplement their SS checks can pocket that little bit of cash without the government needing to get their grubby little hands on it.
I'm on payroll with my part-time job if that makes you feel better.
But if I was making small change waitressing or shining golf clubs at a golf club, you can bet your sweet patooty I'd be pocketing that little cash without telling the IRS anything about it.
Tough if that traumatizes you.
Lack of moral consciousness. Typical Republican and the very reason they are accused of not paying their fair share.
