You got me wrong. I love dogs. I would have spared THEM. It's never the dog's fault. People who let their dogs bark for nothing and antagonize their neighbors, should be hung up by their genitals. In your case, a Senior Citizen Cane.

The same guy that said "if you like your current health plan, you can keep it"? That guy? Over a half million people (so far) got cancellation notices or exorbitant premium increase options. And, these were people that were already paying. Can you smell it? Blame the repugnicants. And, Bush. Those mo fo's.

I suspect there were some brave souls sleeping under the launchers because they figured the drone can't see them. And, where else would they find a roof over those dense heads? I believe there's scurvy DNA all over the place. Just because YOU can't see it, doesn't make it so. Have a glo-light? That even detect bedbugs.

Hey, Anthem Blue Cross sent out cancellation notices to CT People on Medicare. How about that, Mr. Wizard? This is just the beginning. Oh but but it's not Obamacare that's driving it. Of course not. It's only that darn computer glitch. NLMFAO.

Haven't heard anything good about it yet. People who used to pay $440/mo now will pay $1,100/mo. This will cover all the po-dunks who still can't afford "affordable care" -- This country just got flushed. YAK

A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by Idiots by Jeff Foxworthy:



If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for entering ...and remaining in the country illegally — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.



If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.



If you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but not to vote for who runs the government — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.



If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but gives twenty F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.



If, in the nation’s largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not one 24-ounce soda, because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make you fat — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.



If an 80-year-old woman or a three-year-old girl who is confined to a wheelchair can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.



If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.



If a seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his teacher is “cute,” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.



If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government regulation and intrusion, while not working is rewarded with Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free cell phones — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.



If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to provide incentives for not working, by granting 99 weeks of unemployment checks, without any requirement to prove that gainful employment was diligently sought, but couldn’t be found — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.



If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest big-screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a wall-sized do-it-all plasma screen TV and new cars, and the government forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.



If being stripped of your Constitutional right to defend yourself makes you more “safe” according to the government — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots. What a country!


and thats how Obummer is finishing off the USA as planned . Did I warned you about this asshole???

I'm still trying to grasp how Medicare Health Insurance cancellation notices are because they are considered private plans. Yes, you have annual options to change plans based on benefits and price, but it is Government money that funds it. Part B Supplement is out of pocket but they go hand and hand. You lose your doctor, you have to scramble to keep him/her. Bend over.

You may want to add NaviHealth to your portfolio. You got the funds. Behind every cloud………..

>On average, Medicare’s fee-for-service model pays for about 2,000 days in a post-acute care facility for every 1,000 beneficiaries. By comparison, Kaiser Permanente, a provider of low-cost quality care, averages 600 days per 1,000 clients while achieving better outcomes. It’s possible, in other words, that Medicare is paying for 70 million unnecessary days for all of its approximately 50 million enrollees, wasting tens of billions each year.“Even if we’re pretty lousy at this,” Scully said,“even if we only get that down to 1,500 or 1,200 [days per 1,000 clients], we’re going to save them a lot of money and make a lot for ourselves.”<

That's some funny zhit there. Can you believe that it's the Government and not the people that believe that crap? Like the squirrels have dog tags? LOL

You can't make hay in the dark and just so we're on the same page, the Affordable Care Act would not be my first choice for improving health care in this country. That said, something has to be done so that the other 99% of the population has access to the care only 1% of the population can currently afford.

I have a basic problem with a system where insurance companies make more on the care I receive from a doctor the the doctor who's providing that care.

Well, that 1% of payers are being told to go somewhere else. That amounts to a complete Government takeover of the health industry. Is there anything left they haven't got their sticky fingers into? They going to nationalize the insurance companies? Let's do the oil companies. How about banks? Wait, they already did that. How about the utility companies? No wait. That's the EPA. Starting to look like Venezuela. All they need is more people to acquiesce for the good of the other supposedly 99% of takers in this country. Legal or not. Seems like your 1% comes right out of the Administration's playbook. Worker with health plans are not affected. Where's YOUR 99% figure come from? As for the doctors, why are they upset with this latest news that they will could lose millions of their patients? How do you think we found out about it before to hit the papers? They don't like it.
