“My husband was a life long Republican who voted Romney and joined the Army. He's voting Democrat from now on. Thank you Boehner! You did what 4 years of marriage and 27 years of life experience failed to do.

“I watched a healthy 25 year old man deploy for 12 months. He's now a bitter man filled to the brim on pain medications, PTSD flashbacks, a chronic sinus disease, a brain tumor, smaller by 2 full inches in his spine, which includes 3 crushed discs, a broken hip, needs a double knee replacement, is deaf in one ear, and almost blind.

What do I think of this war? No matter what my husband dies from, this war killed him.”

“Regardless of one's political bent, it's a horror story and I'm sorry. For me it reduces all the false bravado talk of war to what inevitably happens to many of the people who have to fight that war.”

“All you Republicans screaming about the plan YOU originally came up with: WHAT'S YOUR PLAN?!”

mfitz11 on Aug 12, 2013 at 09:18:58

“They don't have a plan, that is their problem.
They are literally trying to convince the American public to leave the system as is...the system that has us ranked 37th in the world in level of care and has an estimated 27,000 people dying each and every year from preventible illnesses due to a lack of coverage/care.
Of course the GOP sheep will get in line and follow,, but those that think for ourselves know that perhaps it might be time to change a system that has us ranked 37th in the world and is literally killing 27,000 Americans every single year.”

“More from Bloomberg, "So, let’s make an actual apples-to-apples comparison for the hypothetical 25-year-old male living in San Francisco and making more than $46,000 a year. Today, he can buy a PPO plan from
a major insurer with a $5,000 deductible, 30 percent coinsurance, a $10 co-pay for generic prescription drugs, and a $7,000 out-of-pocket maximum for $177 a month. According to Covered California, a “Bronze” plan from the exchange with nearly the same benefits, including a slightly lower out-of-pocket maximum of $6,350, will cost him between $245 and $270 a month. That’s anywhere from 38 percent to 53 percent more than he’ll have to pay this year for comparable coverage! Sounds a lot different than the possible 29 percent “decrease” touted by Covered California in their faulty comparison. , , , Democrats have pointed to projections from some of the country’s most heavily regulated states, including Vermont and Maryland, to argue that premium increases next year won’t be as bad as people think. But many of these states -- including California -- already have in place some or all of the reforms that Obamacare mandates."

“From Bloomberg (link below): "Covered California, the state-run health insurance exchange, yesterday heralded a conclusion that individual health insurance premiums in 2014 may be less than they are today. Covered California predicted that rates for individuals in 2014 will range from 2 percent above to 29 percent below average small employer premiums this year. . . . The only way Covered California's experts arrive at their conclusion is to compare apples to oranges -- that is, comparing next year’s individual premiums to this year’s small employer premiums. . . .the state already requires insurers to issue policies to all comers in the small employer
market. Premiums are therefore higher today for small employers than for individuals purchasing coverage on their own. ,. . . What this means, however, is that Covered California is creating for itself a very favorable and already higher baseline from which to compare next year’s individual health insurance premiums. That’s how they’re able to create the appearance that Obamacare’s reforms will lower individual rates . . . there are many plans on the individual market in California today that offer a structure and benefits that are almost identical to those that will be available on the state’s health insurance exchange next year.

“But is *IS* working! That's the worst part to all of this: out of 3 states, 3/3 are seeing amazing results that surpass any and all good predictions. I was critical of the law myself, and only hoped that it would help some people, maybe even me. I have personally seen it help me since I had no copay on birth control after I had my son. Granted it was $5, but that $5 went towards sending my deployed husband a care package.”

“What states are seeing amazing results?

California?

Sorry, but their rates are going up, not down.

“This is why we are seeing a spike in suicides. How would you feel if 10 of your friends died there and now 67% of us think their deaths were pointless. I'm part of that 67%, and so is my husband, who watched 10 of his friends die. He cleaned their blood out of a mangled humvee while Afghan children laughed and pointed. Now his units' suicides and mental hospital committals have topped and doubled that number. After all of it, now he pays for bullets and MREs, too. All for a country that could be wiped off the face of the planet and no one would ever ever care or notice.”

“I *am* a military spouse, and all the "help" the Army gives us? It's fake. It's ALL fake. We couldn't go to any Strong Bonds bc they don't provide childcare anymore. Military balls? Their childcare is locking the kids in a room with a movie, alone. My husband fell from a 10 ft obstacle and was told he had to "turn in his man card" for wanting to see a doctor for it. He couldn't walk. He's angry, depressed, and has become "worst case scenario" man. He was 22 hours late on our mortgage and started packing for foreclosure. I had a miscarriage several months ago and his reaction was "get over it. you probably weren't even pregnant". You try living with that.”

“Good luck to you. I hope things get better for your family. And please ignore all the haters here. They sit on their couches being angry at the world, but have no clue about real people and their struggles.

Your story is one that I hear too much, especially regarding the Army. I'm also a military spouse. My faith is the gov't-- well, it's basically gone. I don't trust them at all to help soldiers. airmen, sailors or marines who need it. And help the families? It's a joke. I'm so sorry you are dealing with all this. You are not alone.”
