    It SURE looks like Gov. Lex Luthor of Fl. tossing everything including the kitchen sink in the way…

    I wish you wouldn’t insult an evil supervillain like Lex Luthor by comparing him to the
    (spit!) current governor of Florida.

    They are trying to throw it off the road even though their citizens are beginning to see advantages to it. Right now the biggest ACA help is to Medicare D and the 80% rule for standard insurers.

    Our current Virginia governor is unhappy that the dems called a special session to discuss what our state will or won’t do to cooperate with Federal Law. He thinks we could wait until January and work during regular session. He also ran on the issue of improving transportation to reduce crawl-and-stall traffic all to common in Northern VA and Tidewater. Instead we got (anti) abortion bills and the state chose not to fund teacher pensions so that it made his budget balance better. No problem: the teachers can pay into it for themselves.

    Remember the name: Bob McDonnell. Running soon for president in a neighborhood near you.

    Oh, going into his fourth (and last: governors in Virginia are not allowed to succeed themselves) year, now he wants to add tolls to address the transportation problems that have been ignored the previous 3 years. I can’t wait until he wants to sell off pieces of Interstate 81. Private enterprise and all that.

    I remember a certain governor standing in front of a school, shouting something about “segregation forever” etc. and then 15.000 federalized national guardsmen appearing out of the woods to convince him otherwise. Please, oh please, GOP governors, can we have a rerun of this? Can you please make sure that the world sees that the U.S. is not a banana-republic yet and that federal laws will be implemented, even at gunpoint if need be? Thank you so much for the best entertainment of 2013…

    I remember several years ago, before I retired from driving a semi that there was talk of either building dedicated truck toll lanes on I-81, or a parallel new interstate for just trucks, again to be a toll road, in Va.
    Someone didn’t figure out that if that was done, the trucks would either use the secondary roads, or even if they DID use the new lanes or roads, the cost of the new construction would be so high, that the tolls would come nowhere near to offsetting the expenses!
    Another well though out plan…NOT!

    The simple fact is, Romney/Ryan’s “turn everything over to the states plan”, would bankrupt them all, just like making them pay for their costs, would mean the “RED states” that get more federal money back than what they pay in, and still screw over their populace, would go broke first.

    These GOP governors put playing politics ahead of peoples needs. I’m tired of all the politics. I want them to get something done!

    They have a stretch like that near Austin. Speed limit 85 miles an hour. Warning: Feral Hogs may charge across the road at night. BTW: It is privately owned because Gov. Perry didn’t want to pay for improvements to I-35 one of the busiest in the nation. Price? Depends on when you get here.

    Utah, no small surprise, the insurance companies got together and told the politicians what to do, it reminds me of Cheney, behind closed doors, developing the American energy policy with Enron. Utah also spends the least for student education per pupil in the United States

    @Ms. Ima

    You are saying that your state doesn’t offer health insurance to their employees? How backward of them.

    You would expect more from Ima’s tree?

    Some governors are bound and determined to keep the U.S. with the worst affordable health care delivery system of the developed countries. The only country that thinks its people’s health and lives are a commodity to be bought and sold to the highest bidder. The country with by far and away the most expensive health care system in the world. The country with one of the lowest life expectancies of the developed nations. The country that has 20,000 preventable deaths and 700,000 medical bankruptcies (according to Harvard University) annually. The country that Harvard economist Professor William Hsiao was referring to when he said about designing a health care system, “you have to know a country’s ethical values.”

    What companies don’t offer health insurance anymore? My nephew works at McDonalds and has health insurance. Ocare is only good for people who don’t feel like working.
