Daily breaking news and news the liberal media doesn't want you to know, won't report, or just daily news issues.

Americans for many years have had to rely on left leaning biased news reporting from liberal media such as NBC, ABC, and CBS and the New York Times. As most of these outlets struggle to remain on the air and in print, the new media is flourishing and people are hearing both sides of the issues. This forum will provide people with a place to discuss daily news issues of any kind or discuss articles not printed or aired by the liberal news outlets.

The Georgia real estate agent whose group health plan was folding and who couldn’t find replacement insurance unless it excluded coverage of her $1,700-a-month rheumatoid arthritis medication, without which she would quickly become disabled. The Arizona small business owner who could only find insurance if it excluded coverage of anti-rejection drugs he was taking for a successful liver transplant he’d had years before. The Virginia early retiree who discovered he was uninsurable at any price because of his diabetes, despite the fact that he kept it under perfect control. The Indiana lawyer whose longtime insurance company, following standard industry practice, deliberately shrunk his plan’s risk pool to drive his premium up to more than $4,200—a month!—and him out of the plan. The article also featured the resuts of a survey we did, which found that 76 percent of uninsured respondents said they couldn't afford an individual plan. And the ones who were "lucky" enough to have

The fact that the President lied about if you like it you can't keep has not helped my opinion of the ACA either.

People now have cancelled policies and no insurance when they had policies that satisfied their needs before.

If you are not part of the subsidized pool, I have been reading that policy prices are going up since the ACA sets minimum standards for what the policy needs to cover. If the policy pricing remains the same, then the deductibles go up. Basically, you pay on the front end or the back end. Also, the ACA is health insurance reform , not healthcare reform. If you already don’t have a family doctor the first thing I would be doing now it to find one that is taking new patients.

Previously to the ACA, most children could stay on their parents policies as long as they were going to school, which included college. The ACA allows children to stay on their parents policies to 26 no matter what. Unfortunately, when they get kicked off the parents policy at 27 and are not part of any group plan from employment, they stand to pay the highest premiums out there and a time where they are making the least amount of money and while many are paying off student loans

Mod from what I have read, most of the cancellations are caused by the policies not meeting the ACA minimum coverage standards. This is where the Gov’t tells you what you need. People whose coverage is getting cancelled are people who shopped for and purchased plans that suited their needs. I know of a few people who buy their own insurance to cover catastrophic events: car wreck, cancer, falling down stairs. These people took it upon themselves to prevent what the Libs profess as “many people are one accident away from Bankruptcy” . The pre-existing condition thing I believe is a straw dog. High risk pools were formed and they could not find people to sign up. If Pre-existing conditions is the big enchilada in the ACA I think this could have been and should have been addressed separately.

Why is the media so ate up with Zimmerman?? He got a warning for a speeding ticket OK.. He got a ticket for speeding OK. Points on his license.. His wife and him had a spat and cops were called... Now he has one with a girlfriend...OK maybe he has lost his faith in fellow humans. Can we compare him to others that went thru what he did??

It really does not matter who gets elected d or r or t. They will all tell you garbage and promise you everything under the sun and do what they want. Only thing is the repubs dont wanna take our guns so much as the others do. They know once they get in there they are like a tick in a dogs ear to get out.

So much can happen in such a little amount of time. In July 2011, Gallup ran a poll asking who people would vote for...Obama or a Republican candidate. The generic Republican candidate won the poll 47% to 39%.

Heck the Republicans could get a dark horse candidate that no one will see coming and win the whole thing. Remember how Hilary Clinton had the 2008 election all wrapped up till Obama came about.

Thanks, beright.that sure cleared-up that topic. I thinking you may have been for it before you you were against it.Would you agree,beright, that the majority of cancellations are because the policies were catastrophic types or excluded pre-existing conditions, or maybe something else that the aca has called a foul?

Of course, one shouldn't trust approval ratings all the time. Look at George H.W. Bush. His first term average was an outstanding 60.9% (higher average than any President since Kennedy)and he lost his bid for reelection while Obama with a first term average of 49% won his reelection.

It'll probably be the same with Obama as it was with Bush. The Democrats will avoid Obama as the 2014 elections come along and really will avoid him when the next Presidential race comes about.

The Republicans did the same to Bush.

Posted 284 days ago.

BeRight

They are blaming Bush since they have nothing to pat themselves on the back for at this time. If they had any successes, the Democrats running in the next election would be grabbing for the Presidents coat tails. Now they are grabbing at straws.

And they shouldn't put blame on Bush at this point in Obama's Presidency. In my opinion, an incoming President gets a 16-24 month grace period to deal with issues left over from the previous President. After that..it's all on them.

As for comparisson, it made sense to compare approval rating of Obama with his immediate predecessor. But if you want to compare others then:

Clinton's all time low was 37% with a second term average of 61%.

Reagan's all time low I could find was 35% with an average of 52% overall.

So Obama's all time low is still not as low as Bush, Clinton or even Reagan's all time low.

I support as few items but the things I like come with too much bad baggage.

Posted 284 days ago.

Kendall78

Yep..all time low for him. Currently Obama stands at 42%. GW's lowest ever was 25% with his second term average at 37%.

So in the grand scheme of things...Obama is still doing quite well compared to his predecessor.

beright- are there parts of the aca you support ?

When campaigning for ACA, the left said 20 million uninsured will be able to get health insurance. (~ 5% of the population). Not that they are trying to downplay the cancellation of policies, they are now saying cancellations only affect 5% of the population. (Still 20 million).
