“Many prayers to these folks. Hang in there, families. I would encourage those who have the means to do so to donate what they can to help. Doesn't take a lot of money, but if you can, please help these families out.”

“It requires them to cover children or face a fine. And many times, the fine is cheaper than covering children with health problems. What do you think the insurance companies will do? This bill solves nothing. Still can't buy across state lines and prices will still go up. Pre-existing conditions will still be denied.”

TrueBud on Apr 6, 2010 at 10:35:27

“If they choose the fine over the care, it is our jobs as citizens to call them out and publicly ridicule them. Have you no sense of civic duty? The legacy of America is citizens looking out for each other. In your world, it appears to be every man (and child) for himself). That's a lonely place to be.”

“It requires them to cover children, period. There is no "or" about it.”

“Why oh why can't I buy insurance from another state when other states have better plans for me and my family?”

Equinator on Apr 6, 2010 at 11:23:39

“This is a state issue. Get your state to make it legal and then you can do it.”

bassist33 on Apr 6, 2010 at 11:12:19

“Because you would have individual states setting their own limits on minimum coverage. A corrupt or greedy government could easily set mandates so low that you have massive amounts of people purchasing from companies within their state. When those people go off and get sick and are denied coverage on certain procedures, we would be right back in the mess we are in.”

InfosolutionWiz on Apr 6, 2010 at 11:11:56

“conservativeisaac this is the very reason why the idea push by Repuglicans to buy insurance across state lines is ridiculous and cannot be enacted the way they want it to be implemented. If we go along with their way all the insurance companies will move to one state and ruin the rest of America. Healthcare Reform does allow you to purchase a cross state lines but with commonsense restrictions that prevent unfair competition which will put a state at a distinct disadvantage. Read The Bill.”

Ten Things You Can Do to Help Progressive Journalism

Commented Apr 2, 2010 at 17:31:48 in Media

“So you're advocating the government inject legislation on private business to force (force, mind you) radio station owners to abandon their legal ownership and property rights (and abilities within those rights) in order to provide a spot for a leftist owner and programs to assume control? If people were interested in 'progressive' programs, the market would reflect and companies would air more of those programs on their own.”

IGNSTHMD on Apr 2, 2010 at 23:59:46

“are you consciously ignoring the enrichment potential of one of the greatest media formats invented?”

RedStateDem on Apr 2, 2010 at 19:45:05

“The airwaves belong to the people, not the corporations who run radio stations. We have every right to determine who gets to be on our airwaves. At least we used to have that right before deregulation of the broadcast industry and its sale to right wing corporations.

If these corporations all decided that country music should be the only genre on the air, that would not mean the end of rock and roll. It would just be the end of rock and roll radio. The same is true of progressive thought. You may be the only voice on the radio, but you are not the only voice.

Deal with it.”

“'Wounded or disabled, while in actual service'. What percentage of the general public does that pertain to? Are average citizens being wounded or disabled during actual service? Or are officers and soldiers being disabled or wounded? You tell me.”

“Ummm...how bout the fact that it is speaking directly of service members, not the general public. Which we have through TRICARE for active and reserve military and the VA system for retired/disabled military members. This was not talking about ordinary citizens. It requires no spin, and is easily readable as is. Good try, though.”

pjburke on Apr 2, 2010 at 13:05:30

“It IS speaking of the general public.

It references "officer or soldier," the ranks of which are comprised of "all free, able-bodied male citizens between the ages of 18 and 45..." referenced earlier in that bill. There was no 'standing army' at the time.”

“The decision is probably correct. Believe me! The Fourth Circuit is VERY conservative and VERY PRO MILITARY and they probably died having to follow the law as it stands.

They might be setting themselves up for a very visible, very unpopular decision.... unless they can somehow overturn the Circuit Court of Appeals on some procedural ground. I'm very surprised they took it!”

“I truly appreciate the sentiment and the info. Thanks. After all this I went on to serve 7 years in the Marines, and am now much better prepared to meet violence should it come my way. And I've thought about tazers, mace, etc, but in the end decided to go with a pistol simply because I know that tazers, mace, etc, don't work on everyone. Bullets, however, have a pretty effective rate of stopping a person from doing whatever they were doing just before they were shot. I don't take carrying a weapon lightly. I've never had to show or pull it out, and would only do so to prevent the harm of myself or my family.”

“You are making a whole argument with yourself. Nothing I said was anywhere near what you're trying to imply. Of course arming yourself does not mean that you won't be attacked or have a crime committed against you. But why wear a seatbelt if you could die anyway? Why eat healthy if you could have a sudden heart attack? Why wear a helmet on a bike when a car could still hit you? No one is invincible, and guns don't gaurantee safety, but they do provide some measure of protection against crime. And when it comes to my family, I will do anything, I will lay down my life to protect them.”
