    Obamatrons won't stop at anything, even ruining a holiday tradition, to spout their leader's mantra.

    If I was an American and hosting a Thanksgiving meal this week, I'd be sure to set the groundrules as guests walk through the door - if you talk politics, you'll be politely asked to leave - if you refuse to leave, you'll be ushered out the door.

    my parents are on medicare, and i have insurance, so probably not. we will talk about the best way to steal money from rich people in order to give it to the lazy poor, though. then we'll giggle madly, lick blood from our palms, and light cigars with our welfare checks. after dessert, we plan to burn the Koch brothers in effigy.

    Well, crap is crap, and quality usually costs more. Your point?

    Nope, we keep politics and religion discussion as far from the table and house as we can on Thanksgiving. Nothing good has ever come from those types of discussions.

    Define 'crap'.

    My plan was fine, covered everything I needed, my deductible was manageable, and my copays reasonable.

    Now they want to eliminate the copays, raise the deductible, and raise the premium.

    Exactly why was my old plan 'crap'?
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.

    IF the topic comes up, it'll likely be a bitch session about it. Not a sales pitch for Obamacare here.

    You see, you don't really know what's good for you. Where as the Washington DC liberal / progressive / Democrats really know what you need far, far better than you do, as it typical for any liberal / progressive / Democrat.

    My advice? Keep voting for them, and you'll get more of the same.

    Is it better to keep a "crappy" car that takes you to/from your job or to be forced to replace it with a "better" one that you cannot afford?

    First, if a policy doesn't cover things needed, it's crap. Many did not cover enough on the whole. As these are group polices, you personally are not the issue.

    I'll look for it later, as I'm about to leave for awhile, but PBS put out a report showing little of these drops are actually related to ACA, but the normal yearly drops that occur often, and have occurred over the years. But, companies are more than willing to let you blame ACA.

    Most people have been so deluded by the lies of the right that they believe most of the **** those charlatans are shoveling. I'm not saying Obamacare is perfect (oh, it is not), but there's people who haven't even checked it out because they're convinced they're going to get screwed, even if they're not.

    For the record, I will not be "selling Obamacare" at Thanksgiving, because I don't have to. My family is smart enough and well-off enough to know how to get decent insurance.
