A Year After Newtown, Rift Over Guns Deepens

A Year After Newtown, Rift Over Guns Deepens

Commented Dec 8, 2013 at 18:25:32 in Politics

“Yes, let's pass more gun control laws with the same administration responsible for countless scandals, including operation fast and furious/ATF gunwalking scandal. If the state of Connecticut wants to pass more gun control laws then that's their business, but don't punish the whole country over the Newtown incident, it's highly irrational and it could start a major secession or worst case scenario, a civil war.”

mcneas1005 on Dec 8, 2013 at 23:29:39

“Knowing the area around Newtown, Connecticut , have lived there for over 25 years, you can't find a nicer or more peaceable area anywhere in America. I made my home in Danbury for 25 years. Blaming guns for what happened there is like blaming matches for a forest fire.”

Lisa SpomerKrasnoff on Dec 8, 2013 at 19:15:53

“More gun control laws won't happen with this president. But they will. As far as a civil war goes, will it be during football season?”

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was designed for everyone. Anyone who doesn't sign up for it gets fined(illegally). Exemptions from obamacare only points to an obvious conspiracy.”

“Obamacare is already law and this administration is trying to bypass congress by making new deadlines for it's implementation, this is illegal. There should be protests and calls for impeachment.

“@rlpl02

"Obamacare is not socialized medicine. It is a mandatory law saying we have to have and pay for insurance."

Obamacare is not about paying for insurance, it's about controlled health care. It's either you pay a government corporate controlled insurance policy or you pay a fine.”

rlpl02 on Nov 11, 2013 at 09:00:39

“So, in other words, you have to have it, and you have to pay for it. That pretty much makes it a mandatory law to have and pay for insurance.”

jmdziuban1 on Nov 11, 2013 at 07:29:24

“Controlled healthcare? The insurance and hospital industries have been doing that for years. The results have not been very positive, overall.

What Obamacare does, is mandate that everyone possible be insured, and that the insurance and companies and providers maintain some reasonable level of standards.

Socialized medicine would be better, but corporate America will never allow that, they make to much money of your illnesses.”

“Obamacare supporters are a burden to the U.S. economy.”

tobcantine on Sep 28, 2013 at 11:26:58

“Please explain how ten of my friends who own businesses and three of my friends who are employed in good jobs and several family working in schools are a burden on the economy! I don't get it. You apparently are implying that only those who need Obamacare support it. This is my guess. Well, those who need Obamacare are currently a burden on society in many ways: Many can not work due to medical conditions which might well have not made them unable to work had they been caught and handled earlier. Not working, they do not pay income tax! They drain the economy using welfare and SNAP. Also, those without insurance do not get early treatment (often inexpensive( for conditions they have, which later turn into emergencies, requiring Emergency Room or Trauma Center handling AT TAX PAYER EXPENSE. Note that emergency care is usually very expensive (tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands) and often does not save lives. since it is too late to do so!”

“I guess the U.S. government should pay for our house and car insurances as well and call it a tax, would you concur Mr. Connelly?”

edlobel on Sep 28, 2013 at 11:33:15

“you appear to not know anything about the ACA except what lies the repubs/tp have spoon fed you.

The ACA is NOT FREE! Each customer buys from private for profit insurance companies the policy they want and can afford. There can be help from the government in paying the premiums but it is not free. Plus there are deductibles and percentages of costs that each customer will be responsible for. So right away it is obvious that you have no idea about this program.

Raphael Eduardo Cruz and other repub/tp LIARS have given lots of deliberate misdirection and out and out lies about the ACA. You need to find out for yourself the truth about the ACA and then you will know why you have been cheated out of the truth.

Mr. Connelly has this insurance because the ACA allows him to be covered under there ACA coverage until the age of 26. The private for profit insurance companies must now cover people with preexisting conditions and you cannot be dropped because you have received a certain level of costs.

Before you make posts that show how low informed you are about the facts, you should actually know what you are saying!”
