Delay the mandate?

October 29, 2013

The new national health insurance law, Obamacare, has become something like a runaway locomotive — doing an enormous amount of damage but with no one willing to ease off on the throttle....

I have five adult children between the ages of 30 and 38. Only two don't have company sponsored health care. Of the two without healthcare none are going to sign up for Obamacare. It is what is is.

Delay the man date? How in the world will we ever get gay marriage to go through in ND then?

Let's try something new and that would be a bipartisan conversation. There some things more set in stone for me but I will talk about the affordable care act. Any takers? We should be able to have a conversation here other than spewing insults at each other.

Willygarr/canook, I apologize for calling you a child because I can see you are much less than that. You need to know that all is well and good with me. I wish I could say the say for you. I wish you well.

Willygarr/canook, I'm dismayed at your response. Are you afraid of what might be learned about your supposed service record. I know FraudyMcFraudington and He doesn't tell stories and neither do I. In all honestly you sound like a child and not someone that has served this country in the military.

Willygarr/canook, Fish we shoot with a rifle. Thanks for responding I thought you might have went to bed. I'm still hopeful that you can tell the board where you attended college and where you received your military training.

Willgarr, Fish we shoot with a rifle. Grow up, for a person your age you have enough paranoia for everyone on this board. NDVETRN get used to it and no one else. Is it time for you to find another user name?

Willgarr fish we shoot with a rifle, you are completely comfortable posting when no ones here to respond. Don't know Donnamay but God Bless Her. I wish we didn't know about you either but unfortunately we have your fabricated military record to look at.

Sign #10 resource cont...

"Since the biggest factor driving health care costs higher in the first place has been the over use of insurance that results from government-provided tax incentives, and the lack of cost accountability that results from a third-party payer system, Obamacare will bend the cost curve even higher. The fact that Obamacare does nothing to rein in costs while providing an open-ended insurance subsidy may be good news for hospitals and insurance companies, but it's bad news for taxpayers, on whom this increased burden will ultimately fall."

Signs #1-9 were interesting, but I'll include a resource included under sign #10

"It is also ironic that high-deductible, catastrophic plans are precisely what young people should be buying in the first place. They are inexpensive because they provide coverage for unlikely, but expensive, events. Routine care is best paid for out-of-pocket by value conscious consumers. But Obamacare outlaws these plans, in favor of what amounts to prepaid medical treatment that shifts the cost of services to taxpayers. In such a system, patients have no incentive to contain costs..."

PJinfinity, I couldn't find any sources to substantiate your 8% claim. Instead, I found one quite compelling source that I'll include here...

Why don't the administration apologists talk about how wonderful Obamacare is now, in real time, as it has rolled out?

You people sure make the idea of being a Democrat or Republican seem like a stupid idea.

Mandate the Delay?

Obviously, the delay is there because nobody can even navigate healthcare.gov, let alone sign up for ACA, the All Chaos Act.

A harbinger of what your health care will be from the gov.

"It really bugs you righty's that I ask for facts and substantiation to some of your blogs."

Not in the least. Speaking only for myself, I just love calling you out for the hypocrite you are. Call it a hobby. You want facts to back that up? Consult all my prior posts.

Seriously, we're not writing books or term papers here. It's the comment section on the Minot Daily web site. Get some perspective. Maybe you've got all day to cherry pick statistics for your posts on this site, but I've got other things to do. I'll deliver facts as I determine they are warranted, but it doesn't take a lot of research to tear your warped logic apart. You give me all the ammunition I need.

Now if I was a liberal blogger, I might be asking how anyone could "justify the existence on this blog" of two statements made by centerish towards those with whom she disagrees.

But since I'm not a liberal blogger, I'll just stick with these two facts I just posted.

Thank Goodness It's Friday

It really bugs you righty's that I ask for facts and substantiation to some of your blogs. Well, that is too bad. Not all of us live in lala land and "as a conservative", you can have dibs on that. Kinda would like to have you scroll back and find the "justify your existence on the blog" item you referred--again.

Hyper partisan , hyperpartisan.. You make comments about that and yet the track record of the party you support is beyond comprehension in this area. So far, I do track your questionable statements of fact. I use as many independent sources as possible(I do that because the first accusation from the right is that I use left wing sources.) For the most part, loco, when challenged on the credibility of your so called facts, you disappear, change the subject, make similar accusations to the above. I find that using personal opinions as whistler stated makes no sense. There should be a factual basis to the opinion or it really is not credible. I respect others who base their comments on factual and documentable information. I don't respect those opinions that are based on miss interpretations, lies, false statements and unfounded accusations.

Whistler: "Do we have to accept their version (that of centerish & other libs) as much more factual?"

NOW you're catching on...
