“As one of my friends says, liberal are all for love & tolerance -- as long as you agree with them. You're the one attacking me, a stranger, rather than my point.
Ad hominem: "attacking an opponent's character rather than answering his argument".
I take it you're not using "right winger" as a compliment.”

“If you're so ashamed of being a right-winger that's on you.”
“I don't believe what I said was either irrational or hysterical. I feel I have a valid point. I notice your the one who mounted an ad hominem attack. You just called a gay social liberal "right wing"!!!!”

“I don't really care who you sleep with. You are a right winger. And you people always misuse the term "ad hominem".”
“Journalists are obligated to avoid even the APPEARANCE of a conflict of interest. The fact that CNN allowed the interview to proceed is a sad commentary on the state of journalism in the 21st century.”

“So in other words, you have no answer for my question. Just more irrational right wing hysteria.”
“So, that's the response? That I'm lying????
As per policy documents copy & pasted below:
Is there an out-of-pocket limit on my expenses?
Yes. In-network: Individual $5,000 /Family $10,000;
Out-of-network: Individual $10,000/ Family $20,000
I'm not lying, I am stating a FACT - sad but true. I received my cancellation letter from Aetna & applied for new coverage (Obamacare Federal website not working in Florida. I was never able to get on the site since Oct 1st). But I did get ACA coverage via eHealthinsurance.com”
“It's really not, he is gone and we move on, supposedly. But the GOP has been in modus operandi. Remember this: M. McConnel and his cronies. We will do everything in our power to make this President a one term President. That didn't go well, so the next best thing is to make sure that the GOP do nothing to help get us out of the gloom.”
“I want affordable health care. But ACA isn't affordable for me! My current insurance, NOT substandard but still cancelled, costs $250 per month with $1,100 deductible. My ACA quote: $600 per month with $6,000 deductible! Yikes!”
“Well Aetna just cancelled me. And come Jan 1st I will be paying a lot more per month for insurance with a $5,000 deductible. I guess it's "better" insurance -- but I've never ever met a $5,000 deductible. I like the insurance I have now -- I wish I could keep it.”
“please don't confuse us with facts!
i like my current plan, but it is cancelled effective 12/31 due to ACA. i heard a harvard doctor on MSNBC say people who like their plans "... THINK they like their plans". stupid me. the government knows better”

“YUCK! is healthy worth all that? I would hate to give up all the great stuff in life and get hit by a truck leaving the health food store (joking) i do try to eat well and still enjoy life and am not overweight nor smoke or drink!”
“I'm an individual buyer. My Cigna-AARP plan is cancelled effective 12/31/13 due to ACA, according to the letter I received from Cigna. (Guess I DON'T get to keep my plan -- even tho I like it!) Why can't I have access to the same plans as the unions??? If they get more "carve-outs", why can't I have access to those too?
I thought if the Administration makes too many exemptions or fiddles with law too much, ACA falls apart.”
“i believe the law mandates a tax on so-called cadillac plans, which these are. once the plan cost more than (is it $10,000 per year???), then they are taxed which makes them more expensive.”

“The article states:
Employer contributions to Taft-Hartley plans are already tax-deductible and employee contributions are paid pre-tax, while unions also want the tax credits that go with qualified buyers on the exchanges.

“amen. whoever has the power tends to rationalize that the means justify the ends. for example, voters who aren't troubled by the irs targeting of conservative groups might be whistling a different tune if a conservative administration targets liberal groups to suppress voter lobbying.”
“How is it off topic? It's just another example of the blatant lies this administration tells:
1) if you like your health insurance, you can keep it;
2) the Benghazi attack was the result of an inflammatory video;
3) IRS targeting was an isolated incident in one office in Ohio.”
