Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

I, at this point, cannot believe that democrats still blame the republicans and the insurance companies for the disaster that they created.

They were warned, people begged them to stop, not one republican voted for it. That fact alone should have given the democrats pause, but no, their way or the highway.

They have been wrong on every front and just cannot bring themselves to admit it. This is what you get when you have one-party rule in congress and the oval office.

So, the website failure is nothing more than a symptom of a much larger illness.

The administration could not, after 2.5 years and $500,000,000.00, even get the enrollment portal operational.

The policy and regulatory issues were not thought out, the potential consequences were not even considered.

The facts regarding your ability to keep what you have if you like it were, it now appears, knowingly misrepresented. The administration knew as early as 2010 that not only the individual market participants but the small and medium sized employer participants were going to lose their plans by the end of 2013.

They knew it and they lied about it.

With regard to the Blue Cross plan, I will bet that you will spend more with WAY larger deductibles and co pays. I think the BCBS went to 10K per year for a family and 4800 for individual. That is double what my current plan has.

These duncecap Borg couldn't criticize a democrat if one bit the head off a live kitten on national television.

I don't like being lied to. Won't tolerate it.

I note the period because it seems my left leaning friends have no clue what it is. "...you can keep your plan, PERIOD"!

You had better look twice a "accepted pretty much everywhere" also.

Your new plan will be a HMO or PPO. <- That's a PERIOD.

hville is living in OZ.

I don't have any friends or business associates that enjoy their socialized systems. That would include Canada, UK, France and my brother in law in the Netherlands.

Keep dreamin' hville. You will never get to socialized healthcare in the U.S. as long as more than 50% of the people oppose it. Won't happen.

Truth notwithstanding too.

We'll get there. In the meantime, being self-employed, I'll get a new Blue Cross plan and save a ton of money in the bargain. Accepted virtually everywhere.

Yup,a lot of problems, even going beyond the website problems. Should have gone to expanding Medicare to every US citizen from birth, but that would have been (gasp!) socialized medicine! Oh no! I have Canadian friends who think our system is the goofiest thing ever. They, and most of the rest of the industrialized world have lower costs and better results. Been that way for some time, insurance company propaganda not withstanding.

BAIT AND SWITCH

FRAUD

So, why am I mad now?

Not because of the cost, but because in the run up to the vote and beyond the administration and the democratic party made promises that they knew were false.

In short, we were lied to; over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.

My plan had everything I could want. It was "cadillac" in nature and fairly inexpensive. It's gone because it did not meet the HHS regulations with regard to offerings I did not need or want.

The republican proposal, unlike that of the dems, was to not create a whole new goliath but to target problem areas. Michigan already banned preexisting conditions, our commish had started to eliminate lifetime caps, and was working on expanding the number of companies that could offer insurance in our market. Add tort reform and you get a system much like the auto insurance system that costs a fraction of what health insurance costs.

But that, my friend, is an inconvenient truth.

You would also be smart to not focus on the website and start focusing on the ramifications of the law at large.

The dems have corrupted the system that served 90% of the population to cover the 10% that needed a solution. Problem is, we will stll have 5% to 10% uninsured...again.

Keep trying though, I REALLY need a good laugh.
