Try this site, it's quick and easy. http://www.thehealthsherpa.com/ President Obama should have known not to use republican operatives to set up the healthcare site. They've tried every way possible to discourage, mislead, lie about the exchanges, you name it.

that's what you get for 'assuming', degage. I don't go to 'liberal sites' as you suggest. I try to stick to 'news', not opinions. I went to USA Today, it's a national newspaper, been around for several years. Also, I wouldn't be bragging about being in your 70's and still ignorant of the world around you. I'm sure you would rather be in your 'bubble' than out here in reality. I hear 'ignorance is bliss'.

Well, I guess since you haven't seen it 'personally' it doesn't happen. What kind of little bubble do you live in? This is from that 'liberal site' USA Today. Call it the retailization of health insurance.

Shopping center owners may not be courting them as they would Apple or trendy fashion brands, but health insurers are increasingly opening stores alongside far sexier retail tenants.

You really should broaden your horizons, degage.

The Real Story Behind the Phony Canceled Health Insurance Scandal Insurance companies ripped off Americans for years with lousy health plans. Obamacare was designed to fix that. Blue Cross was selling these plans in malls and other retail insurance "shops" in an effort to target young people who don't have or don't think they need health insurance, luring them in with cheap premiums of between $24 to $54 a month. The plans came with a not-well-disclosed caveat that they were not designed to replace hospital-surgical plans, which Blue Cross encouraged people to buy—provided the purchasers could get past all the exclusions for preexisting conditions. This is what republicans are fighting for – junk insurance plans that are as worthless as a $3 bill.

I was heartened to see another state, Illinois, step out of the dark ages and join in the theme of this country -- same rights for all its citizens, not just the ones deemed worthy by the holier-than-thou hypocrites who like to pass judgment on their fellow humans and pat themselves on the back.

fairmon, don't play stupid. Your question: "Why do you object to him advocating people having sex doing so in their preferred position?" Their meaning the approved republican way. Last week, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli petitioned a federal court to reconsider its ruling on the state’s anti-sodomy law, asking the judges of the 4th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals to reinstate a ban on consensual anal and oral sex for both gay and straight people.

And, as Dana Liebelson at The Week notes, Cuccinelli isn’t the only lawmaker — and Virginia isn’t the only state — trying to legislate consensual sex.

In spite of the 2003 Supreme Court decision in Lawrence v. Texas that ruled sodomy laws were unconstitutional, many states still have them on the books and continue to selectively enforce them.

But in 13 states (not including Virginia), the laws didn’t actually disappear: Montana, Oklahoma, Texas, and Kansas still have laws specifically outlawing sex between gay Americans, and 9 other states outlaw anal or oral sex for everyone. Mother Jones‘ Tim Murphy notes that “conservatives in those states know they can’t enforce the laws, but by keeping them in the code, they can send a message that homosexuality is officially condemned by the government.”

I'm talking about every citizen's right, not just mine, so stop with the transference. On second thought, fairmon, I guess you're not playing.

Mr. Zema, you need to do some research on the ACA before spouting lies and half-truths for the ignorant to consume without question.

Blue Cross was selling plans in malls and other retail insurance "shops" in an effort to target young people who don't have or don't think they need health insurance, luring them in with cheap premiums of between $24 to $54 a month. The plans came with a not-well-disclosed caveat that they were not designed to replace hospital-surgical plans, which Blue Cross encouraged people to buy—provided the purchasers could get past all the exclusions for preexisting conditions. One visit to a hospital could bankrupt the average citizen and does on a daily basis in this country. So, that's the plan you want to have.

In law, treason is the crime that covers some of the more extreme acts against one's sovereign or nation. A person who commits treason is known in law as a traitor. We are a nation of laws, are we not? If found guilty of the charge, proper punishment is called for. There are republicans running for office as we speak that are calling for the arrest of anyone caught performing any sexual act other than their preferred position. Look it up. I do believe the guy running for senator in Virginia today has taken that 'position'.

The Patriot Act was signed into law by George Bush on October 26th 2001 in direct response to the attack of 9/11/2001. The Act increases the ability of law enforcement to fight terrorism. The only rumbling I heard from the right then was, "if you don't have anything to hide, why do you care". Strange that when GWB was in power, that was okey dokey. Now, that people actually know what that insidious act was all about, somehow it's this President's fault. Typical right wing rhetoric. Also, the GOP doesn't have any problem with invading your bedroom to make sure you're using the "missionary position" and with the opposite sex, and a woman's body with their policies. That's where the real uproar should be. I think we all benefit from better health if we all have access to a doctor.

Ms. Collier, I think you miss the point of prohibiting smoking in public places. We do not inhale, unwillingly, french fries, honeybuns, or soda, unlike filthy, carcinogenic cigarette smoke.
