Franciscan University Drops Entire Student Health Insurance Plan Over Birth Control Mandate

Commented May 15, 2012 at 20:14:19 in Politics

“Since the ACA allows students to stay on their parents insurance until age 26, I wonder how many students use college health insurance anymore.”

“It's probably more than you think. There are a lot of people attending college who are under the age of 26 and are married or already living on their own.”

“I use it because it's cheap and ends up paying all my copays I would normally have to pay and I know students on campus whose parents have been laid off and don't currently have insurance.”

“Obama sets forth a budget for 2013 and 2012 - all of the Democrats in the Senate vote against it. The Republican majority House passes a budget each year. The Democratic majority Senate fails to pass it and provides no alternate.

"Senate rejects Obama budget in 99-0 vote"
"A budget resolution based on President Obama’s 2013 budget failed to get any votes in the Senate on Wednesday."
"Obama's 2012 budget failed 97 to 0 last May after Obama himself last April said he wanted deeper deficit cuts."
"The Senate also voted on four GOP budget blueprints, which were all defeated."
"The GOP forced the votes and believes they showcase the party's ability to produce plans that eventually balance the budget with the lack of a Democratic alternative.
Republicans have hammered Senate Democrats for their inability to produce a budget, which the GOP notes is approaching three years."”

Obama Leads Among Early Voters: Poll

“So do they know how the votes are cast? That would be illegal in every state.

What they are actually doing seems to be is saying that registered Democrats are early voting more than those registered as Republications.

"In Iowa, about twice as many registered Democrats as Republicans have voted by now "
But in Iowa only about 1/3 are registered as Democrats, 1/3 as Republications, and 1/3 as other. How are they counting absentee/early votes by the independent third?”

“Any one who has worked on a campaign know you call the phone during phone banking. You ask who they intend on voting for. Then you make a large effort in getting out those votes early. WOW if you really didn't know that you need to work on a campaign one day.”
