udhq: randomjsa: Premiums going up, the majority of the people have been and continue to be against ObamaCare, businesses are against ObamaCare as well. He's really done a bang up job on that, screwing it up worse than ever in order to 'fix it'.If there are many people like me, I suspect ObamaCare will do wonders for the economy.Being able to get insurance through someone other than an employer has enabled me to quit my corporate gig and start my own business.
udhq: jigger: udhq: Being able to get insurance through someone other than an employerI'm curious why you couldn't do it before. Individual coverage has been out there all along and sometimes, because you have a greater choice of insurer, is cheaper for the same coverage.Believe me, I have looked into every possible angle over the years, and even through a freelancers union, it was prohibitively expensive with my pre-existing condition.I've met a frightening number of people over the years in a similar situation to mine. Luckily, I now live in a universal access state (MN), but for people in the next state over, seeing a roomful of republicans applaud the idea of a "right to die" during the primary debate was pretty frightening. They're literally talking about a death sentence for the crime of being borne with an illness.
jigger: udhq: Ah, I see. You don't understand how insurance works.Insurance is a risk management plan to cover unexpected expenses. Your expenses are completely expected. Let's call it what it is. You're looking to pay less for something that is completely expected, that you can't seem to afford. You're looking for some sort of discount, whether that comes from a price cut or having other people pay the difference.

udhq: Hunter_Worthington: wow. I would really hesitate to give the President any credit for his "Economic" revolution.I understand the point of the article, you've got to keep the morale of the soldiers up, but don't you think a nice Allison Brie/Gillian Jacobs burlesque show would work better?Oh right, this is the part of the show where we pretend the president didn't inherit the most quickly shrinking economy in history, make it grow almost immediately, and sustain that growth steadily for over three years.
USCLaw2010: Oh Yea? Senator John Glenn pulled off 3 revolutions in one day before he even ran for office.
Dr Dreidel: What color revolutions were they?
randomjsa: blah-diddy-bloot, scoo-diddly-doo, bing-band-wing-wang, skiffly-wiffly Benghazi?
ShawnDoc: What do you expect, his middle name is HUSSEIN. You know what that means!
