<quoted text>Notice how he's mouthing the old 'community activist' mantra lately? Too bad for him OBAMACARE and the OBAMA ECONOMY that is squeezing the American middle class will be front and center in November and not the old, extreme, lefty ideological mantra he's using as a desperate deception. Not even the Soros, Bloomberg and Zuckerberg money can fix that.
Obamacare and the "Obama Economy" is not "squeezing the American middle class." The tax policies enacted mostly during the Bush years that lowered taxes on the shifted a bigger part of the burden down to the middle class are responsible for the problems.

Obamacare is hurting the working poor, the very class that it was supposed to help the most. I heard today about some more people that I know whose hours at work have been cut to part time so that their large corporate employer won't have to provide them with insurance. They're in a catch-22. They can work only part time, make less money, and get Medicaid, with all its demeaning hassles at the local welfare office. They can take two part time jobs, neither of which will provide insurance and make more money. Then they make a little too much to get Medicaid, but still can't afford health insurance. So they get hit with the penalty.

Woman that told me that is poor, but she now absolutely hates Obama.

Next election, she'd vote for Hitler if he promised to repeal Obamacare.

Bill regarding the poor woman:

I do not know the exact status of the woman you are referring to and every case is different. If she is real poor she might be already covered.

Please make her aware of the following if she has not already checked.

Qualified coverage is if you have healthcare coverage in 2014 through any of the following sources:
•Medicare
•Medicaid
•Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
•TRICARE or another veterans' healthcare plan
•Peace Corps Volunteer plan
•Employer healthcare plans including COBRA and retiree plans
•Any health insurance you already have on your own
•Any health insurance you have through the marketplace, or exchange, available starting in October 2013, with the insurance taking effect in January 2014.

If she is not exempt and does not buy insurance, she will have to pay a penalty.

The amount she pay will increase from 2014 through 2016:
•2014:$95 for each adult and $47.50 for each child up to $285 or 1% of your family income, whichever is higher
•2015:$325 for each adult and $162.50 for each child up to $975 or 2% of your family income, whichever is higher
•2016:$695 for each adult and $347.50 for each child up to $2,085 or 2.5% of your family income, whichever is higher

Then she could be exempt From the Penalty.

According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, people who will not have to pay the penalty include those who:
•Are uninsured for less than three months of the year
•Are determined to have very low income and coverage is considered unaffordable
•Are not required to file a tax return because their income is too low
•Would qualify under the new income limits for Medicaid, but their state has chosen not to expand Medicaid eligibility
•Are a member of a federally recognized Indian tribe
•Participate in a healthcare sharing ministry
•Are a member of a recognized religious sect with religious objections to health insurance
•Are in prison or other similar institution or correctional facility after the disposition of charges against you
•Have received a hardship waiver through a health insurance exchange
•Are not lawfully present in the United States, are residing outside the United States, or are a resident of a possession of the United States

I was just telling you something that happened on 9/11, the day the twin towers came down in New York, NY.

I got that much, but I don't understand the religious angle that you seemed to be putting to it. I know we've got a few preachers that would like very much to read recent events into the hogshit that they peddle as "Bible prophecy" (John Hagee comes to mind), but there's no religious aspect to it.

I'll grant that it was a memory marking event. Just about everybody remembers exactly where they were and what they were doing when they heard the news, just like the World War II generation remembered hearing the news of Pearl Harbor. Or the next generation when they heard the news of John F. Kennedy's murder.

I was walking across the quad at Murray State University, in Murray, Kentucky, that morning when I met a pretty little Arab girl, a Jordanian, who was a student there. She wore a headscarf but was otherwise westernized. Think Daisy Duke in her long bluejeans and a headscarf. She was crying when she told me about it. Her older brother worked in the WTC. I thought it was a commuter plane, something like the B-25 hit on the Empire State building during World War II. Then I walked into the cafeteria just in time to see the second plane hit live on the big screen TV.

Thanks for the info but I already know that.

Problem is more complicated. Big part of it is the young black woman who runs the local welfare office that handles Medicaid filings. She a strange bird. Bends over backward to be nice and helpful to her typical non-working "welfare mother" type clients, but is completely shitty toward white working class people. Real bitch. Somebody is going to slap the cold piss out of her one of these days and I hope I'm on the jury that decides the case - I'll hang it until hell freezes over or get them acquitted.

The woman I described no doubt qualifies for Medicaid, but she's so turned off by the treatment that she'll end up paying the fine. She is in no way a racist, at least wasn't. Now... The fact that Obama is black plus the treatment at the welfare office has turned her into one. A lot of Obama's supporters claim that the opposition to him is driven by racism. Some of it is, but in a lot of cases, I'd say the majority, it is the other way around. People who feel shafted by Obamacare personalize it into hatred of Obama. The fact that Obama is black then causes the hatred to generalize into anti-black racism.

Even worse than that would be their monopoly of being the only cable choice, in 46 of 48 of the largest, metropolitan areas in the U.S......not even counting the enormous number of cable channels, they would control....this is a disaster.....and everybody is too busy arguing about BS.....

I moved to KY from Illinois. I lived north of Chicago. Comcast had control of that area. We used to have broadcast t.v. like we still do in KY. Comcast got a bill passed to do away with broadcast so everyone was forced to buy cable. I remember sitting, watching a movie one morning and the t.v. went to static. They are not friendly. Oh and by the way, don't ever be late on your bill. ;-)

Because"truth" is a subjective term and "facts" are what one makes it to be.
How to control a nation; Distract, Deceive, Divide.

I told Time Warner the truth. My health care premium went up. I need a lower cable bill. They agreed.

It was easier than telling my boss I need a raise.
