    ‘The other ten percent complained of rashes from handling the envelopes.’

    Aye B.Z. but the cherry on the sundae was the note on the bottom of the envelopes: “Made from recycled complaint note paper” that REALLY gets ya.

    And that they learned that paper cuts were not covered.

    I thought the response should have involved the running out of trees to make paper so only 60% of the kingdom got the info. And of course 80% of the recipients filed for disability from back injuries after carrying the hundreds of pounds of documents.

    Bad (?) timing… I am currently muddling through the mess from the real world legislation. The only thing I know so far is I pay more for less coverage, and my old plan is prohibited.

    I’ m calling B.S. here. If your old plan is prohibited, it’s because it didn’t provide the minimum coverages required under the PPACA. It’s possible that your old plan didn’t cost much because it provided so little coverage. If you’re paying more, my guess is that it’s because you’re so opposed to Obama that you didn’t bother to check out the exchange or you’re in a “red” state where the GOP governor and legislature have sabotaged the state exchange by keeping potential insurers out.

    Only BS here is from you. If people were happy with their old plans, as I was, no business of the government to tell them its not good enough.

    Good call. EVERY time that claim has been made, it has been proven false on investigation. My favorite was the lady who became a poster child in GOP ads because of her claim that she couldn’t afford her new ACA policy. The facts? Her old policy was around $400 per month with a $1000 deductible, total cost $5800 per year. Her ACA policy was $300 per month with a $2000 deductible, total cost $5600 per year. Somehow she “couldn’t afford” to save $200 per year. Turned out she was only looking at the deductible. When the savings were pointed out to her, she still said she didn’t like the idea of “Obamacare.” However, the GOP was smart enough (!) to stop using her in ads. Hers is only one of hundreds of instances where claims of increased cost were proven wrong.
    .
    It’s similar to a campaign ad Corey Gardner has been running in Colorado, claiming “315,000 Coloradans received cancellation notices due to Obamacare.” What the ad neglects to mention is that about 300,000 of them received initiation notices IN THE SAME ENVELOPE for a new policy with better coverage, lower costs, or both.

    More bad fiction from the Obama worshippers. Only ones getting caught lying about it are you and your precious liar of the year master.

    My high deductible private plan (no employer dependency) was outlawed. And yes, it was because it didn’t cover all the government mandated crap I don’t want covered. And yes, the corporate sponsored replacement is slightly cheaper, covers the crap I don’t want covered, and doesn’t cover stuff I do want covered – and I lose it if I become independent again.

    So the bottom line is that this government hates people being independent.

    On Seinfeld, George’s fiancee died from licking the glue (to seal them) on the envelopes for their wedding invitations.

    George was supposed to be there, helping her.

    Would envelope glue illness be covered by the fink’s health care plan?
