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

Like my father told me..."I'm too sick to go to the hospital".

Things just got a lot better for Virginia Democrats. Too bad for that arrogant little weasel Cantor, but he's going to be around D.C. - watch for the announcement in January when he becomes a lobbyist for the oil industry or insurance industry or the chemical industry or some such, looking for new ways to put the screws to country...

Their defense...

There defense of the ACA is that insurance companies have been using "narrow networks" for a long time..... Umm I thought the ACA was going to fix that. It all comes down to you get the coverage you pay for, (or I pay for based on your economic status), so I guess we're back where we started.... JUST DON'T GET SICK.

You can also read "Media Matter's" feeble attempt at rebutting the AP story.

Read it if you need a good laugh.

Now, for the nuts and bolts of the ACA as it directly affects Ms. Churchill's condition.

"Obamacare: Many top cancer hospitals off-limits for newly insured" By The Associated Press March 19, 2014 - 06:59 am

"..WASHINGTON (AP) - Cancer patients relieved that they can get insurance coverage because of the new health care law may be disappointed to learn that some the nation's best cancer hospitals are off-limits..."

"..his tell a woman with cancer that maybe her church could help her with medical treatment summed up the GOP perfectly for me.."

Example of my side note. (Sourced my quote from...."Think Progress")

"...CANTOR: First of all I guess I would ask what the situation is in terms of income eligibility and the existing programs that are out there. Because if we look at the uninsured that are out there right now, there is probably 23, 24% of the uninsured that is already eligible for an existing government program [...] Beyond that, I know that there are programs, there are charitable organizations, there are hospitals here who do provide charity care if there’s an instance of indigency and the individual is not eligible for existing programs that there can be some cooperative effort. No one in this country, given who we are, should be sitting without an option to be addressed..."

That's what Cantor actually said jaxspp. I'm sure you read things edited by your 100%'ers.

I think you are going to see a lot of incumbents struggle with primary challenges. People are sick and tired of the waste of space congress has become.

Freeman

Again, you're not very bright are you jaxspp?

I'd rather release 500 Taliban grunts than 1 commander who could effectively lead them.

I can't believe how you just keep missing the point.

I don't think I said anything about leaving anyone behind. I said the deal was stupid. Again, you have to pay attention jaxspp.

(Side note - Ever notice how jaxspp's positions are "you're either with me 100% or you're FOR THE MOST EXTREME ALTERNATIVE)

People see through that crap jax. Lame, just lame.

Oliver North belongs with O J Simpson. I'm not sure which one is creepier. The tea baggers have encouraged cop killing and sadly some are proud of that.

I'll miss Cantor, his tell a woman with cancer that maybe her church could help her with medical treatment summed up the GOP perfectly for me. Hopefully that woman now had coverage under Obamacare that she couldn't get previously, much to the chagrin of Republicans.

Posted 97 days ago.

Sorry Free, most of us are not living in your paranoid fear that these Taliban "commanders" will some day attack us at the mall. And your support of leaving one of our soldiers behind is noted. FYI, little man, you were pretty silent when Bush released 500 TALIBAN, one of which ended up in the Benghazi attack.

Look it up.

My take:

1. The President did not break the law by not consulting congress on the release of the Gitmo 5. That law is not constitutional to begin with and the President's signing statement makes that position clear. I agree with him.

2. Bergdahl needs to be brought back and explain his actions under an Article 32 proceeding.

3. Trading those 5 people was just plain stupid.

4. The Rose Garden ceremony was unnecessary and the White House staff let the President look foolish. If I were the President I'd get a broom and start "opening some positions" in his senior staff.

You might, also, want to review Col. North's service record before casting dispersions on the man. I'm not sure what you think covert operations look like jaxspp, but to compare coughing up 5 Taliban commanders with what North did is the absolute definition of ILL-INFORMED.

Vacated by an appellate court, not SCOTUS

Posted 98 days ago.

Freeman

You have to love jaxspp. Just because an issue is not important to "his majesty", any comment or concern as to said issue is "whining".

You're not very bright are you young man?

Col. North requested a courts martial with the expectation that he would be judged by a jury of his PEERS, he was tried in civilian court. His conviction was OVERTURNED, VACATED by the Supreme Court.

Posted 98 days ago.

Freeman, you still don't get it. No one cares what your opinion is of them, or for that matter, most of the topics you whine about.

Oliver North should be in prison stripes. As republicans mount another fake outrage campaign by declaring "We don't negotiate with terrorists" over the Bergdahl matter, they have completely forgotten the King of the Terrorist negotiators, Oliver North.
