bull Dave. Not only you, but you steered your employees to the exchanges as well.
You do know that the exchanges also provide policies for small companies, right?

We are a very small company. If we were a larger company, we wouldn't need the exchanges.

Th companies that I have managed in the past were large enough to get good rates from the insurer & the exchanges would not be utilized there.

WHAT OIG FOUND
'MTC Clearfield improperly awarded 10 of the 12
sub-contracts it managed during our review period. We
questioned $2,813,773 because MTC Clearfield did not
comply with its own SOPs.'

' Based on our statistical sample of 41 expenditures, we
estimated that there were between $155,860 and
$309,166 in potential questioned costs."

When you demand a photo ID to vote, you single out those without a photo ID & threaten their right to vote.

A hurdle those who already have a photo ID do not need to climb.
Two things.
If there rally is this significant voter fraud that a photo ID will stop, then there should be an effort to assure all those who want to vote has good access to these photo IDs. Good access goes beyond making them free.
Here in PA, Republicans passed the law & then did absolutely nothing to make it easier to get an ID.
In my county, there is one spot to get that ID. Not walkable from any urban area & no public transportation.
In a Party meeting, a Republican legislative leader bragged that they might have just given PA to the Romney.
Now, being a right whioner yourself, you likely think that the right to vote is meaningless and it is OK for Republicans to cheat to win elections. Most true Americans, hold the right to vote near & dear to their hearts.
2) Since there are no statistics showing significant voter fraud that a photo ID will stop, the more to force photo IDs certainly only has one purpose.
If you look at the 10-12% without a photo ID, they are disproptional minority. Minorities tend to vote Democrat.
Republican passe the law with the sole purpose of reducing the Democrat vote.
A study done on NC showed a voter photo ID law would have swung NC to the Republicans on 2008 9(I believe).
So why do you think Republicans need to cheat to try to win elections.
Emanland is a place where they poke sticks into defenseless animals, trash the constitution to win elections, treat women & minorities like second class citizens, deny science, and worship the Limbaughs & Becks of the world. So no thanks but Flack is probably interested.
well, if we are going to evert serious about our massive illegal immigration problem, we will really need to get a better national ID system. most nations in Europe have them and it hasn't caused major problems with their poor or disadvanaged...

and we will need them when we end up with single payer health care anyways...

this is how it works in daveland.

poll worker: do you have an id?
voter1: yes
poll worker: proceed to voting booth (without requiring the id)
poll worker: do you have an id?
voter2: no
poll worker: may I see it?

A lot of people are going to be surprised when they find Uncle Sam has taken a big chunk out of their pocketbooks because they didn't sign up for Obamacare.

A lot of people are already surprised it's not as affordable as was promised.

And a lot more people are going to be surprised when they lose their employer-based insurance. Obama just kept it from them a little while longer because of an election cycle.

Seems a lot of surprises are still in store. Pelosi must be so excited! She loves for us to be surprised!

The a$$ is you. When people ask for ID, like to fly or to buy alcohol, reciting your SSN gets you nothing.

Why don't you go back to when this subject started & read the post to which I replied. They were talking about showing IDs.

But hey,you being a jackass coincides with your desire to get all beered up & poke innocent, helpless animals with sharp sticks.

Russian economy, tycoons take hit in Crimea crisis
Associated Press
By NATALIYA VASILYEVA 20 hours ago

MOSCOW (AP)— Russia's most powerful businessmen waited for over an hour Thursday to hear from President Vladimir Putin, whose decision to annex the Crimean Peninsula has cost their companies hundreds of millions of dollars in market value.

When Putin finally showed up, he spoke to them for five minutes — and gave them no reassurances that they or their companies will get any respite from the uncertainty created by the takeover of a piece of land of little value to them beyond national pride.

Russia's economy has been pinched by the crisis over Crimea, even before the new sanctions the U.S. and Europe announced Thursday.

The Russian stock market has tanked 10 percent this month, wiping out billions in market capitalization. Economists have slashed growth forecasts to zero this year and foreign investors have been pulling money out of Russian banks. The Standard & Poor's ratings agency on Thursday cited all these issues when it cut its outlook for the country.

Because U.S. and European leaders have said they are willing to impose ever stiffer sanctions, ratcheting up the pressure on Russia step by step, the concern is how severe the penalties might get.

"The main risk is in the sanctions that have not been announced," says Nataliya Orlova, chief economist at Alfa Bank in Moscow. "It's hard to estimate the effect right now because we don't know what they will be."..."

We were discussing how Teaman, intentionally or unintentionally, lied about his daughter's coverage. It is a known fact that the cheapest form of health care is to let sick people die and, chances are, if you have catastrophic insurance your illness will be caught too late for a cure which does indeed save thousands in medical expenses.
the fact that one has catastrophic insurance does not prevent one from seeking regular medical care by using their premium savings.....

just ask the FOXbot whiners who complain about 'overreach' every time Obama changes it.

just like the roll out of Part D, things that need fixed don't always come to light until implementation. and just like Part D, the problems will be have to be fixed over time because the ACA isn't going away.
