“Voter ID laws protect everyone's vote and pose no restrictions. The "I don't have an ID" excuse is just that: an excuse to stack votes”

melodisong2 on Dec 10, 2013 at 08:15:42

“Why is this an issue now? and not when W was running for office? Also if you're going to have voter ID laws, then make EVERYONE get a state sponsored ID used only for voting and you get to pay for it since we all of a sudden need it. No more of this use your hunting license as a valid ID crap.”

Steamboater on Dec 9, 2013 at 21:12:45

“There's been no evidence of stacking of votes by the democrats and if there is any it's was done by the GOP trying to block democratic minorities form voting. They tried it PA when the state was assumed fixed for Romney and admitted so by a GOP legislator there and in Florida as well as elsewhere.

“No. Democrats are not trying to buy votes, they are doing it in broad daylight. This is with OUR money. Solyndra and the stimulus are examples of hundreds if not thousands of companies and friends of O who he is paying off. If Romney took money from the NRA and he supported their ideas prior to taking the money, that is not vote buying. And I do not support any politician changing what he ran on for in exchange for a dollar. The first jobs bill I want them to pass is the repeal of the job killer Obamcare”

“and the Democrats have no limit on how much of our money they will take to buy their votes. Unemployment insurance is just that: insurance. When it comes to an end, it's time to do something else or something period”

skyvigil on Dec 6, 2013 at 16:01:44

“You're actually going to accuse the Democrats of trying to buy votes when Mitt Romney took over ten million dollars from Shelly Adelson? Which is actually worse bilaton? Selling political favors to the highest bidder or trying to keep people from losing everything they have because there aren't any jobs? You have a really warped sense of priorities as do all of your conservative brethren.

Perhaps if your beloved Republicans would get off their butts and start passing some jobs bills we wouldn't be needing to extend unemployment benefits to people who can't find work.”

“No, we mean communist when we say it. I don't understand the term white Christianity, as Christianity does not divide people by color or even political belief. It is communists of any color that embrace evil as a form of control over the free will of others. I can give you many examples that go from Stalin and Marx up to Obama”

kay360 on Dec 6, 2013 at 20:17:06

“Christianity has long divided itself along color and class in Western history.  It is said that even today Sunday mornings are the most segregated time in the US.  Furthermore, to call communists "evil" is bombastic.  Capitalism has gone so far as to buy and sell people, so we capitalists should be a bit humbler about judging any economic system. 
As for free will, how is Obama imposing on your free will?  You likely criticize him often and loudly, and no one has arrested you.  Your rights remain protected by the Constitution and a network of governmental organizations.  You have no real understanding of what it is like to live under Stalin's death squads, and you insult the memory of those who did with your incessant whining. ”

“My in-laws are in their 80s and pay $600 for full coverage under Kaiser and they like their plan. What care would they get at the qualifying county hospital and at what point will they be cut off by the death panel? I have been to a county hospital and I would not send my dog there. If they lose their plan because of Obamacare, they are finished”

He went to the best Cardiac Care Hospital in the county, rated top 5% in the country and is back to living alone and taking care of himself. He was in the Hospital a week then came to stay with me. His bill was about $50,000 out of pocket about $1,000.”

“Here is another success story!
Ellen Holzman and Meredith Vezina, a married couple in San Diego County, got kicked off their long-term Kaiser health plan, for which they'd been paying more than $1,300 a month. The cause wasn't the Affordable Care Act. They'd been living outside Kaiser's service area, and the health plan had decided to tighten its rules.
That's when they discovered the chilly hazards of dependence on the individual health insurance market. When they applied for a replacement policy with Anthem Blue Cross of California, Ellen, 59, disclosed that she might have carpal tunnel syndrome. She wasn't sure--her condition was still being diagnosed by Kaiser when her coverage ended. But the possibility was enough to scare Anthem. "They said, 'We will not insure you because you have a pre-existing condition,'" Holzman recalls.
But they were lucky, thanks to Obamacare. Through Covered California, the state's individual insurance marketplace, they've found a plan through Sharp Healthcare that will cover them both for a total premium of $142 a month, after a government subsidy based on their income. They'll have a higher deductible than Kaiser's but lower co-pays. But their possible savings will be impressive.
