Av's had good fortune last night. Empty netter just short and if Johnson doesn't knock net off mooring Cooke from Wild buries an empty netter. Wild goalie makes save and puck goes right to Stasny. In OT wild hits post. Sucks to be a Wild fan
Now Neil is into name calling. Beautiful. No facts just attempted insults.
Don't know if you are familiar with Jonathan Turley. If not, google him and his testimony before congress regards current POTUS and his use of executive orders. FYI, he is an Obama supporter so not a knuckledragger like me. (-;
Here is more from Turley.
Chris, I answered your question in a previous post. Maybe you should read it. Regards your answer to Joe you stated that the Supreme Court ruled on ACA. Then pray tell, why has Obama been able to "override the Supreme Court" and change the law 30+ times.
Rhys is probably the go to guy for that question, but our new computer is being delivered tomorrow. Thought long and hard about installing Windows 7 on our antique that has XP but decided it was too slow as it was so time to bite the bullet. I now know where I will be all weekend.
Neil, Once again you have nothing but snide comments. Thanks for making my point for me. I do appreciate it.
So then you have no clue what the Tea Party is all about. No surprise there. For you it's just about trying to insult anyone who disagrees with your point of view. Sad, but it is America and you ate allowed to spew your venom in a public forum.
Neil's facts, well all he has is one NY Times article, are good facts. Anybody who disagrees has bad facts regardless of the source. Sorry Neil, you really don't bring any thing to the discussion other then your snide little disses of any body who dare disagree with you.
My apologies as I am unaware of who you refer to when you use the term Tea Baggers. I am aware that the term tea bag has a slang reference to an act which shouldn't be described in this paper. Possibly you are trying to insult those with whom you disagree. I am aware of the Tea Party, which to the best of my knowledge has done little or no damage to people or property at any of their gatherings and are allowed free speech just as you are, unlike the Occupy Wall Street crowd which has no problem destroying property or assaulting police officers, or liberal academia which has no problem preventing conservative speakers from appearing or if they slip through the cracks allowing disrrupters to interrupt or cancel the speech. Now lest you think I am a member of the Tea Party, I am not. Nor am I a member of the Democrat, Republican or Libertarian parties either. I take the Groucho Marx approach to "clubs". 'I do not want to belong to any club that would have me as a member'.
I am not aware of anybody on the left or the right who disputes the president's ability to spin a yarn nor the New York Times willingness to promote it.
"A study released today on the Health Affairs blog finds that between 29.8 million and 31.0 million people will remain uninsured after the implementation of the Affordable Care Act in 2016 and breaks down those figures by state.
The research team from Harvard Medical School and the City University of New York School of Public Health projects that the demographic composition of today’s uninsured population will change little under Obamacare.
The share of the uninsured who are U.S. citizens will rise slightly from 80 percent to 81 percent. White persons (of all ethnicities) will continue to constitute 74 percent of all uninsured Americans. About 59 percent of the uninsured will have incomes between 100 percent and 399 percent of poverty, while 27 percent will have incomes below poverty.
Study co-author Dr. Steffie Woolhandler, a professor at CUNY and visiting professor of medicine at Harvard, said: “Many people believe that Obamacare will cover everyone. But the reform is so deeply flawed that 30 million or more will still be uninsured after it’s fully implemented. Even if the Supreme Court hadn’t let states of the hook for Medicaid expansion, 26 million would have been uninsured."
So we have the ACA which reportedly will still leave 30 million with out insurance, has kicked many people off plans they liked, will prevent many from seeing doctors they liked, has raised costs to many people. Is this considered a success Neil? Heaven forbid what a failure would look like.
