If your daughter has the money to afford her high deductible at a moment’s notice, like in the case of a car accident, and has the money to cover her 30% share of hospital stays, surgeries, lab test, intensive care etc. after her coverage kicks in, catastrophic insurance may work just fine for her. Problem is...that is not the case with the majority who choose that coverage. They don't have the funds. They are just gambling. Catastrophic insurance is for people who can't afford traditional health insurance. If they can't afford traditional insurance, how are they going to afford to pay for their share of expenses in a the event of a catastrophic event?
auto accidents are poor examples because there is additional insurance involved.......

Thank Goodness Romney Isn’t President

It has become fashionable in the last few months to give Romney credit for “prescience” on Russia in the 2012 campaign, as if he did anything more than echo ignorant hard-line talking points that didn’t show the slightest understanding of the relevant issues. He uttered a nonsensical claim about Russia as “our number one geopolitical foe,” which is still very wrong, and most of his defenders still don’t understand how laughable this was. All that Romney demonstrated as a candidate was a knee-jerk hostility to Obama’s policies and equally reflexive hostility to improving relations with Russia. To the extent that he had a coherent idea for how to approach Russia differently, he thought that Russia should be provoked at every turn and that cooperation should be avoided. This approach was rightly mocked during the campaign, and one can only imagine how much more poisonous relations with Russia would be now if it had been official policy for almost five years before the crisis in Ukraine. Had Romney been carrying out his preferred policy towards Russia over the last year, relations would be considerably worse, and we would be saddled with an administration that would go out of its way to clash with Russia on every issue. It was bad enough listening to Romney try to make foreign policy arguments as a presidential candidate, but it is simply ridiculous to be treated to the same nonsense now that the election campaign is long over.

The better question is: How did the Europeans succeed, gain victory over The Native American Indians?

They had the well armed Calvary.

With the exception of Custer. Yea, at his Legendary Last Stand, The Native Americans slaughtered his ass. What Custer didn't know and didn't expect, count on - All of The Native Tribes banded together, the number was so overwhelming Custer went after The Women and Children who escaped on Horses, out rode Custer, the coward.

And, The Native Americans also had fire power, quite unexpected.

Custer and his men were butchered at Little Big Horn.

That's what arrogance and pompous got Custer.

There. Now I broke it down.

Americans for Prosperity claims people are getting less at a higher cost under Obamacare
Americans for Prosperity said "millions are paying more and getting less" under Obamacare. We found their explanation of "less" rather dubious. Most people on the individual market are getting more benefits under the law. At worst, they’re paying more to get more, though in many cases they’re actually paying less.
We rate this claim False.

Anything put out by David Koch's "Americans for Prosperity" can be rated False. It's a given.

Let's see, in 1964 roughly half of all twenty-five year old women had never had sexual intercourse before they married. Roughly 75% of American adults in 1964 thought that premarital sex was wrong. Kinda shoots your theory to pieces.
Why don't you go back to your source and post the rate of white children born without a father in 1964 to today's number. The, you might actually have something to discuss.
Thank you. That was before the sexual revolution. White girls who got pregnant went to the hospital to get a D&C; or went to a kitchen butcher to get an abortion. Otherwise; they either got married or were sent to a home for unwed mothers and gave the baby up for adoption.

The world has a peacekeeping agency. It is called the United Nations. When we go around the world (mostly to oil producing nations) promoting OUR ideals and OUR political sentiments, we make enemies. Being the peacekeepers of the world is not in our best interest. Acting as a member of a united body of nations to deal with conflicts around the world is the best solution. Bush ignored the United Nations and look what happened. We should learn from his failed policies.

roughly half of them probably said they didn't have premarital sex, but that would be a miracle if it were true...

<quoted text> Are you really this ignorant? The government took over for the father allowing mothers to kick out the breadwinners and rely on the government for food, housing, etc... This attitude has now spread along all races. I can remember while growing up people would do anything or job to keep the stigma of welfare off their persona. Now it is praised and even glorified. The shame of being on welfare and food stamps is long gone. The downfall of this once great country is almost done. What a pity!!!! We once raced to the moon. Now it's a race to the welfare line!!!!
For once we agee on something. The EBT cards were a mistake. They were implimented to remove the public shame associated with food stamps. But, IMO, it was that public shame that motivated people to seek employment. No one wanted to be on food stamps. Now, no one cares. I support the food stamp program but it needs to be fixed.
