Yes but this article is about a law that's before the New York State Senate.
Once again they toss the bedraggled straw man into the debate. This woman needs to realize that health insurance is a benefit offered as part of a compensation package. If you don't like it the benefits you can always ask for cash to buy your own insurance. No one is telling her that she "can't use a certain kind of contraception" or "can't access certain kinds of health care" or she'll get fired; but she is trying to tell every person living in the state of New York where they must spend their health care dollars .
"Click through, and locate the "honor system" graphic. There's your golden ticket, would-be individual mandate taxpayers. Sure, it'll further undermine the financial architecture of the law, but at this point, who's counting?" This is the same behavior that Democrats are encouraging with regards to illegal immigrants. If illegals can break the law to do what's best for their families, surely the Democrats will extend the same privilege to actual taxpaying US citizens.
The lack of detail is what gives it away as a canned public relations response. Kickstarter didn't care enough to craft a personal reply; instead, they invested the smallest amount of effort possible in hopes of smoothing things over.
It's the same reason the government spends tax dollar so freely, without thought or accountablility. They don't have to earn it so it's all Monopoly money to them.
The ACA is overloaded with mandates. That's why the guy mentioned in the article can't purchase insurance to cover big ticket items like hospitalization at reasonable rates.
In the Obamanation illegal immigrants are granted special privileges that citizens can only dream of having. I guess we need our own Dream Act.
Sure, Obama has sympathy for these people but he has zero interest in the millions of American citizens who had their health insurance snatched away by his crappy legislation. Obamacare? Nope.
From the Washington Post: "This case is not about sexual orientation, but using current law to protect a 17 year-old girl from a 47 year-old sexual predator," Cuccinelli spokeswoman Caroline Gibson said in a statement. "We agree with the dissenting opinion that the petitioner was not entitled to federal habeas corpus relief and the full court should have the opportunity to decide this matter. The attorney general is committed to protecting Virginia's children from predators who attempt to exploit them and rob them of their childhood." Cuccinelli agrees with the dissenting judge, Albert Diaz, who was appointed to the 4th Circuit by President Obama in 2009, who argued for deference to the Virginia Court of Appeals. In Virginia, sex with a minor who is 15 or older can be a misdemeanor but not a felony. (MacDonald was also convicted of the misdemeanor of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and is not challenging that decision.)
I agree. Political thought has become calcified as the same people spend decades fighting turf battles rather than serving the public well.
