Hey DaneHick ... better yet, let's change that to DaneBitch ... how do you defend the fact that your liberal government voted in favor of exempting members of Congress from the ACA?
Ohhhhh, that's right, you cannot defend that, can you?
So these Democrats/Demogods believe that what's good for the country is not necessarily good enough for them.
And why don't you ask citizens of a country like Canada where "socialized medicine" exists and everyone has access to health care? They would tell you it is dreadful; People can wait up to 18 months just for a diagnosis of life threatening illnesses.
As usual, you are clueless. Be thankful I am not running your two-bit rag ... I would not employ you to deliver the paper, let alone write for it.
Good read, Tom. But for the record, the problems with the ACA website go beyond an unanticipated flood of those seeking insurance. Yogi was right and so was a comedienne the other night who described the "oops" being like 800 Flowers not anticipating so many calls on Valentines Day. But like I said, there are other problems with the site; we registered, were assigned a User Name and Pin, and immediately informed we were not recognized - an ID error. A "chat" with an ACA website expert informed us this was a continuing problem with the system. His advice - keep on trying.
BTW sent an email to Ron Barber a couple of days ago kvetching about the site and his recent brain farts - no reply.
Trotsky said it best. "You are bankrupts. Your role is played out. Go where you belong from now on - into the dustbin of history." Republicans are finished. Even with gerrymandered districts, the surviving reelected few will be a national joke for voters to laugh at. It's the same problem the libertarian party has. Run on the platform that you will not fulfill the duties you were elected to perform, thus shutting down that part of the government. Results: nobody votes for you.
"...who can tell me why they are so hellbent on denying health care to their fellow citizens" Not that I agree with them in this specific instance, but the reason is a general philosophy that you should take care of yourself. You should pay for goods and services that you receive out of your own pocket, not from government handout. You don't get free car care. No free house care either. For extra credit, explain why this particular kind of care is different and why it should be free.
I WISH TO GOD TED COULD RUN FOR PRESIDENT, HE WOULD STRAITEN OUR THIS GOD FORSAKEN COUNTRY OBAOMANATION HAS TRASHED AND AS FOR TOM, TOM WHO?
Like every good liberal, Tom loves seeing the country go bankrupt. He loves seeing millions of people unemployed permanently. He hates the idea that people should be responsible for themselves. Government is always the best solution to any problem. What a wonderful place this would be if only the we could quit harping on freedom and let government do everything.
This is an outstanding column that highlights many of the anger focus points of a majority of U.S. citizens (voters) about the government shut down and looming default on national debt.
Arizona's Democrat Representative Ron Barber (bitch) should be recalled for his vote to shut down the government, which is a betrayal of Gabby Giffords and the voters and campaign contributors who helped elect him. Remember that Gabby flew to Washington DC to vote FOR the Affordable Care Act early during her recovery from being shot. A major reason Barber won was his history as Gabby's employee. I hope Gabby withdraws her political endorsement of Barber during the next election.
Thanks for a great read, Mr. Danehy.
If Republicans really thought ACA would be a train wreck, they'd be all behind it!
"Tom reflects on the government shutdown. Spoiler: He's not a Ted Cruz fan"
Who in their right mind would be a Ted Cruz fan?
I wonder if Lute is proud of his daughter's cave-in.

Strange, but when I asked about getting phone service I didn't need, just to save money on a bundle, they said my bill would go up. This was Cox. Go figure!
One of my employees wanted to switch his land line and bundle it with his cable. So he called the cable company, and they verified his account pin number by his cell phone number they had on file. Then he gave them his current land line phone number he wanted to keep the same. Everything verified, no problems.
Until they hooked up his land line, they called in the CELL PHONE (!) number to disconnect the existing service, and use that as his land line number. Now, his cell phone carrier is charging him for early disconnection, he has two land lines paying full price, and no cell phone.
Ah, the wonders of private corporations' efficiency...
The crux of it all... Its not an open an d free market ... Not enough competition ..
It would be nice if our worthless Congress actually did something useful, like restricting the ability of cable company monopolies from using their power to rob their customers. Of course, that will never happen, because the cable companies have the politicians in their pockets. This is, after all, a democracy... right...the best one money can buy!
I get so annoyed by these cable people trying to sell me something so 20th Century like a land line. I pity salespersons who are stuck peddling white elephants all day long.
Another classic from Pulitzer Tommy. At least he spared another of his same old,same old anti-gun rants. Haven't people heard of the dish?
This is SO true. Thanks, Tom, for putting this together. Given the dozens of people I know that have the same problems with Comcrust, Coks and CenturyDisconnect, I am sure many people around town will be nodding in agreement.
Almost the same thing happened to me--only with Cox Communications. I had to call about a connection issue recently, which was taken care of in good form. Then I was asked if I wanted to to save some money on my monthly bill (currently only cable and internet), when I asked how, I was told that if I would just add a land line to my cable "bundle--the operative word" then they could lower my entire monthly bill by at least $10.00 per month. I said no, I would keep my cell phone only life, but $10.00 less on my monthly cable bill sounded good anyway. To keep a long story short--bill is the same, service is the same, no land line added so unable to "save" any money on my bill. Seems like this should be illegal, maybe something the corporation commission or our legislators should be looking into.
While the 1997 Arizona team beat 3 #1s, they had to go into overtime to beat Providence. As the only PC grad living at the time (it seemed), it wasn't a happy day in Tucson. The Friar team had really good talent but had a lot internal conflict between the players.
I still feel that if Austin Croshere had not fouled out, PC wins.
I agree, the 88 team had the best talent ever
