“If an insurance company doesn't have you on it's book then they can't send the person an insurance card. How could someone go to a doctor or pharmacy if they don't have the insurance card so I think the article is a little confusing.”

“I actually have quite a number of patients who show up with no card and claim they have a certain insurance. My front desk girl looks them up on the insurance website to verify. I agree, that it seems reasonable that someone would not believe they are enrolled until they receive a card or notification, but you would be surprised.”

“that is how people were finding out they were not covered. they were calling to ask where their insurance cards were, and were told they were not covered...
“I'm curious. Do you have any red line which NSA should not cross. Give me an example in your mind of what would be a red line for NSA snooping. Something where you would say to yourself, "Whoa they crossed the line, that is too much snooping!"”
“The Obama administration frustrates the living daylights out of me sometimes. I like the guy and most of his policies however so many of the things his administration does are quite contrary to his pledges of openness and transparency.”
“Only 50% support it, wow, that is surprising and disappointing and sad. Not being fired merely because you are gay would seem to me to be one of the most innocuous and uncontroversial forms of equal protection you can think of:”
“This is starting to look like a keystone cop film. The WH adamently denies something the NSA is alleged to have done, then a week later the Guardian releases some of the leaked NSA documents strongly or explicitly supporting the allegation, and then the WH fumbles and fals over themselves trying to figure out what to say.”

“"...By all accounts, the new policies will offer consumers better coverage, in some cases, for comparable cost -- especially after the inclusion of federal subsidies for those who qualify..."
"...spokeswoman Kristin Ash...some policyholders who may have faced limited coverage for their medical conditions will get new plans with “richer benefits” and the policies “in most cases, will be at a lower rate.””

“"Regence spokeswoman Rachelle Cunningham said the new plans offer consumers broader benefits, which “in many cases translate into higher costs.”
“The arithmetic is inescapable,” said Patrick Johnston, chief executive officer of the California Association of Health Plans. Costs must be spread, so while some consumers will see their premiums drop, others will pay more -- “no matter what people in Washington say.””

“Obamacare was sold primarily by the unfairness of freeloading uninsured individuals going to the emergency rooms throughout the country, paying for nothing, and passing those costs along to responsible people who saw their annual premiums rise from this abusive freeloading behavior. If the insured people were already being responsible and were not freeloaders, then why design a law (Affordable Care Act) which is resulting in the cancellation of MILLIONS of policies carefully chosen by their customers? This was sold to COVER the UNINSURED and disallow denials for preexisting conditions - fine. But we now see a Trojan Horse of cancelling a very very high percentage of individual policies.”

“"Right now the main mission is to find this guy and get him in jail," Arpaio said during a press conference on Vargas's death."
Sounds to me like the main mission is to go around machine gunning for revenge.”

“Sounds to me like the main mission is to protect the officers, like the one that was gunned down in his driveway, in the best way possible. What possible issue could you have with law enforcement having great fire power like this to protect themselves and the community? Everyone has and is entitled to their opinions, liberal or not, but if you're ever in a situation where you needed saving and a law enforcement officer is equipped to do so you would be grateful for their help. By the way an AR-15 is a semi automatic rifle not a "machine gun" as you say. You don't even know what it is you're speaking about but feel the need to get involved by commenting on public forums and put in your 2 cents. That I feel is far more dangerous for the community than a police officer with a rifle...”
“An opportunity to make an astoundingly significant medium term progressive appointment. How can he even remotely entertain Larry Summers. *sigh* I wish Obama didn't under perform my expectations of him so frequently.”

“Will you please respond stating specifically where in the article there is any evidence of Obama "entertaining" Summers for the FED. Those words have never been stated by him, they're the musings of people who call themselves reporters and journalist. A Dem politician introduced that fantasy and the media has just taken off with it.
But, I do sincerely hope Summers isn't the choice...”
“119 promises broken according to Politifact. Although this is worse because it is a complete reversal, given what is in the articles last paragraph. It's only 24% of his promises but this one was particularly near and dear to my heart. Not all promises have the same weight. I really have a love/hate relationship with this guy.”
