“You really can't remember an event properly if you have no idea when and where it happened. you can say Remember the Alamo, but not knowing the dates and where it happened, is like saying Happy New Year in May it has no meaning”

joebud on Dec 7, 2013 at 12:34:30

“Having an idea of when it happened is fine. The exact date, not really. And the Alamo is a bad example. Not that critical to American history. I don't know even know when it happened, date-wise, or year-wise, but I do know it was a small group of Texans holding out for days against a huge Mexican force before being killed.”

“The main reason for the lack of response to the ACA in the south, is do to the fact that they refuse to set up any exchanges, and actually have passed laws against them. That empowers Insurance Companies to make insurance more expensive than it needs to be.
States that have set up exchanges are having success in signing up the uninsured and offering competitive pricing from the companies participating. Give the people options for affordable insurance and they will enroll”

“We as a country have a habit of saying we will never forget. The fact is, we do and will continue to do so. Cases in point: Remember the Alamo, Remember the Maine, Remember Pearl Harbor. I don't think there are many that can give the dates of each of those events without looking them up. Sadly the same fate will befall 9/11 there always were widely reported commemorations for Pearl Harbor up until recent times. Soon it will go the way of earlier historical events, as will 9/11 in the years to come.”

“In the states that accepted the ACA, exchanges were set up as well as web sites for the people to sign up. Even in GOP controlled Ohio, they are having success. Of course none of that is reported. The problem is with the Federal website that Americans have to use because their Governors refused to up take the subsidized Medicaid, that is100% federally funded for 3 yrs and 90% funded there after.
