    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.
    I'd be interested to see how that applies to my, and many people's, situation.

    I know more about our coverage then the Average Joe.... believe me, it wasn't crap.
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.

    Well, I realized as I wrote the poll question that a lot of people might talk about Obamacare without actually following the OFA talking points, so since the OFA guide is really a sales pitch I made the poll question reflect the intent of the OFA guide.

    On this same note, John Cook at SLATE has written an article about how to start fights with your family at Thanksgiving.

    I found this to be a rather funny bit of satire ... until it was pointed out by Mediaite that John Cook really is an industrial sized douchebag to his family and that the advice he gives in his article pretty well match what his poor wife says about his behavior at family gatherings.

    So maybe it was never intended to be satire at all.

    Yeah, that's kinda how insurance works. Always amazes me that people don't understand this.

    Maybe if you practiced a little self-control...

    Ha ha! That is so dorky! No wonder people are up in arms, we've never had such a socialist invasion of our personal lives in the history of the world!

    But seriously, I want to see the Republican family dinner that is so Anti-Obama that the parents ask their kids to just pay the penalty.

    John Cook is basically a horse's ass with a keyboard. F that guy.

    Agreed. Let's all hope his family gives him the Jazzy Jeff treatment this holiday season.

    Are you going to be one of them?
    I certainly am.
