“The unemployment figures are seasonally adjusted. The unemployment rate went up which means the number of jobs created did not keep pace with the number of people seeking jobs.”

“And then where will the rich in other countries who currently come to the United States for quality health care go? Now people in America can wait just as long for treatment as they do in those other countries that provide rationed, mediocre care.”

“You mean certain Latin American, and middle eastern countries....well they use to go to Germany, and United Kingdom.....now days...they go to Turkey, Israel, Cuba, Canada, Thailand.....I really would like to understand the purpose of your statement..."Where will the rich in other countries who come to the United States for quality health care go" percentage of foreign patients coming to this country for treatment is so little it does not make a dent in the medical incomes except the balance sheet of certain hospitals who are charging arm & leg plus........”

“When is the government going to recognize plural marriage? Equal protection means EQUAL< protection.”

Cynthia Brown Christ on Jan 11, 2014 at 00:12:57

“I think it would consider recognizing it as soon as enough people who want it, spend decades sacrificing their life and their time rallying for its support. Have they done that? Are there enough people who still want it?

If not, why bring it up?”

“Plural marriage? As in polygamy?”

PhilipB on Jan 10, 2014 at 22:59:32

“Hi Larry - it is in the word, equal and there is more. Have you ever wondered why in so many countries that recognize marriage for gay and Lesbian couples do not also recognize plural marriages?
Marriage in countries that do not allow polygamy -marriage is a legal contract between two people -with presumed equality between the two people. This is important in many estate issues, apportionment, inheritance, divorce, child support and custody and much more. In countries where there is polygamy, there is not presumed equality -generally the man has more rights, with the various wives with lesser rights -all rather labyrinthian. Marriage for same sex couples changes nothing in the normal contractual capabilities in marriage between two people. i hope this helps deepen your understanding of the legal implications and why it is not likely that marriage equality with be extended to polygamy -a different form of marriage contract.
Best regards,”

“"blatant lies" ???  What blatant lies could you be referring to ?  That people were dying and having catastrophic events requiring emergency care because they couldn't afford an annual check up ?  That people were filing personal bankruptcy due to such catastrophic events - and who picks up the tab then - THE TAXPAYERS.

Here's a fact:  Reagan's trickle down theory was THE biggest lie spoon fed to the public.  All it did was take middle class income and have it trickle up to the wealthy.

Instead, the Republicans are only concerned about what will get them in or keep them in office, and could care about what the majority voted for. Sore losers and big babies is how I see it. As to unnecessary coverage - it is only unnecessary until you need it, and most people are only concerned about the moment they are in. This is insurance for all possibilities, not just to the ones that you have already experienced...”
