    Nope. We always want to avoid digestive problems during the holiday. It's all about giving thanks - not about selling insurance. Maybe Obama can start going door to door on Thanksgiving. He'll get great receptions, I'm sure.

    Oh our family gatherings are the Tale of Two Cities--those who have worked non-stop since their early teens and those, who well, are too special to keep a job more than about a year every now and then because they already know everything and won't put up with anything unfair and anybody disrespecting them. Care to guess which city always hosts the Holidays?

    Unless of course you guess wrong and you need more now.

    hard to actually tackle our individual situations, but we do have rather comprehensive looks at what has happened in the past (mind doubled some years ago and reduced coverage before Obama was elected -- Damn Obamacare). And we know some of these changes are happening with no connection to ACA at all. But letting you think so is beneficial to insurance companies and critics.

    Probably not, but others in his and her group likely do, and that is how insurance is packaged.

    No, that is how insurance is packaged now - now that all those plans that didn't have men getting maternity coverage have been cancelled. Your depiction of the cancelled policies as "crap" is in contradiction to the evidence.
