  1. I just found out that I’m an Obamacare success story!

    I qualify for FREE medical, dental, and vision coverage, AND even though I haven’t received any information or cards in the mail, I’m already covered. Yay!

    *happy dance*

    • Karl is still in sniffling toddlerhood where the world is supposed to be revolving around him. He wants to be relevant and that just isn’t happening!

      Christie Coyote with the chicken in its mouth:
      don’t look at me I’m not guilty.

      • 528 now.

        I’ve been working on my own draft of the matter most of the day. Unfortunately, it’s 3 pages long. I need to edit (but the arguments need to be made…. I hate editing for length…). I wonder if “The United States Congress” is sufficient for the organization to deliver to on Change.org?….

        • I really hate going in on Sunday night. This has got to be the last one. They aren’t even scheduling overtime for our machine right now, so it would be the best time to go to two shifts, and let the second shift guy get back on days. The Ingersoll (my machine) has a bad bearing on an axis drive and may be torn down when I get there tonight, so I’ll probably run a Haas.

          Danica’s car, set up for the rubbered-in condition at Martinsville, never really was able to be adjusted for a ‘green’ racetrack. A green track is when it rains hard enough to wash off the rubber the night before the race. She ended up 32nd. Nascar has been using a softer tire on the short tracks this season, and they change a lot more throughout a stint, and seldom outlast the fuel.

    • “Barrasso said that simply putting out enrollment numbers isn’t enough.

      “What kind of insurance will those people actually have?” the senator asked. “Will they be able to keep the doctor that they want? How much more is it going to cost them? We know that some of the best cancer hospitals in the country want very little to do with people that actually buy this insurance on the Obamacare exchanges.””

      So, actually, he does not deny the actual enrollment numbers, he just demands that each enrollee’s insurance coverage must be qualified to his satisfaction. Basically he is saying, “Oh, the enrollment numbers reached the mark? … Ummmm… I hate you, I hate you, I hate you, and you’re all stupid poopy-heads.”

      Because if an (R) is speaking it MUST say something negative about President Obama, Democrats, or anyone else who is not in their (small-minded) tent.

      • Wonder why insurance that wasn’t worth shit but cost a lot, never paid for anything, and was cancelled when the ACA went into effect for its crappiness was more appealing to John . . . ummm . . . Bareasshole (however he spells it)?

        Oh. Wait. He’s a Republican. Ok. Yep. Fascist. Traitor. Etc.

        I should be nicer, probably, but for some reason “nicer” gets trickier by the day.

        • Having a name so easily morphed into a derogatory slur must have had an effect on his teen years. I’d say he’s the typical, bullied, nerd getting back at the world now that he’s achieved a semblance of power.

      • “We know that some of the best cancer hospitals in the country want very little to do with people that actually buy this insurance on the Obamacare exchanges.”

        I wouldn’t be surprised if they want little to do with most people’s insurance that don’t cover expensive treatments. I’m even more positive that his assessment of “the best” equals “most expensive”, as if the two have anything to do with each other, or should.

        That’s why I love my doctor. She’s not in it for the money, She actually cares about her patients getting better.

        • So what? Most insurance plans have always limited your network. When I had cancer in 2006, I was lucky that a new center opened only 35 miles away, else I’d have driven 70 miles each way for radiation. In any event, you can’t actually get free chemo or radiation in the emergency room. Giving folk access to any treatment that doesn’t bankrupt them is a huge improvement.

      • I called my doctor’s office, and asked what plans they were accepted by. The girl who answered the phone simply said ‘all of them’. I chose a silver plan by Blue Cross/Blue Shield. The next time I go to the doctor, I’ll find out if this is real.
        The only other choice was Humana, and nobody took them the last time I had a cheap plan from them through an employer.
