OMG, the Obama Government is going to let me choose my own light bulbs? Really? How exciting. This is nuts. They think if they let me pick my own light bulbs I won't notice the $20 trillion dollar debt they are running up? The whole bunch are smoking that whacky tobacky. Have we ever had a more inept Government? I don't think so.

Catboy, we are very happy with our new plan because:

SAVINGS
.
KEEP OUR DOCTOR

Wish blue shield had cancelled our old plan because our attempts at cancelling our old and expensive plan has been the most frustrating and time consuming.

So, yes, dear, we "are well with our plans" -

Although "well" might be an understatement and tragic it is NOT!

Of course it did. Good for you, because there are millions of others that are not so lucky, and they are the people who will see that Obamascam is "out of business" soon.

Work in a fast food restaurant is work- and you don't pay taxes and you leech off the government plunging toilets in section eight housing, Pinocchio.

You even bragged about getting out of jury duty.

Well, la tee da for you. As long a it's working for you, the millions for whom it isn't working out so well can go pound sand.

Do you know who was President in 1994? I am sure you do. Google it. Those curly light bulbs are alright. They aren't any better then the others, and it was just to see if the Democrats could order you to do their bidding. Wonder if they owned lots of stock in the companies? I would prefer deciding myself what kind of light bulb I want, Same as with my healthcare. I just read Obamascam is worse today for open security then it was last October.

100 plus posts on the evil of light bulb technology moving out of the 19th century.

But No one anywhere complained for even 1 second about HD TV technology replacing analog broadcast signals and making the cathod ray TV so completely out dated that you can't even take your old TV to the goodwill, they don't even want them.

IT amazes me how you republican repeater parrots just take the crap your media overlords give you and just run like mad with it.
Why do you suppose TV media didn't get all upset about the expensive changes they had to make to keep with new broadcast laws, but mess around with 130 year old light bulb technology, the only answer is Government taking over your life.

Funny thing about AC Voltage, what's not used is wasted because you can't store it, like you can with DC.
Phased out and no longer allowing them to be manufactured in this Country. LOL, yeah sure like America makes it's own light bulbs.
And another thing. With all these energy efficient appliances that use less energy why is my utility bill 20 times higher than it was 10 years ago?
First of all,1/2 of the current is not wasted. The advantage of A/C power is our A/C based power grid uses 1/2 of the wires required to run the same grid on DC power. wit AC power the circuit is complete when the current reverses, and the unused power returns on the same wire it came out on. DC current would require 2 wires, one out and one for return.
Read up on Tesla, he was the brilliant mind that made Edison's electrical mess work properly.
As far as your electric bill being 20 times higher then 10 years ago, that is just plain bullshit. a typical ploy employed by conservative windbags. the cost of electricity has only increased 40% in 60 years, one of the very best values in our society for sure.
Get your facts straight, and don't post on subjects you know nothing about.

Government didn't force us to buy HD television sets. That's besides the fact that HD television sets were an improvement for television watchers. The only time government needs to get involved in forcing people to buy something is when the product can't support itself, you know, like liberal radio broadcasts, low flush toilets, light bulbs, that kind of thing.
Liberals don't like choice. They never have. Choice means freedom.
Libs are all for "choice", just as long as that "choice" is the one they want you to choose.

Did you know that Commie Care now covers inmates in prison? That's right. For states that accepted the expansion of Commie Care, those prisoners will be on Medicaid. How nice.
Sir, arguing with you and your friends here who bash the ACA is an exercise in futility. All I can tell you is I still retain Empire Blue Cross / Blue Shield, all my doctors also take my plan, my cost savings are over 40% less from what I was paying last year, and my yearly deductible is only $1500.00, far less than what I was paying.

If you have not attempted to try to sign on and see for yourself what your potential savings could be, you are merely parroting what others have embedded into you.

As to your statement regarding the ACA and state inmates, I highly suggest you read this link - your information is misguided sir;
