 @kerryfox I understand your thinking, but in this case it is not so.

The states take money from the feds to enforce federal mandates of Obama Care ( to act as their policemen). The moment the feds don't like the way the states are doing their job, they yank the chain and the states jump in line. State control is an illusion when they are enforcing federal law.

If you are going to oppress me - please don't ask me to help !!!!!!

I love state soughvernty , but in this case there is none, there is only capitulation.

 @BdgrGrl76 I am sorry for your situation and we are our brothers keeper - that is a voluntary and spiritual act.

To forceably take from one person and give to another is not charity but theft and it empowers the one who takes it.

Please don't buy the lie that the Government can create a paradise on earth - their promises never pan out and we are left slaves.

Please don't force this system on others - I don't want any part of it.

 

I have worked as a broker for over 20 years and a real problem I do see is responsible people who are coming off group coverage and have pre existing conditions. I think an open enrolement period to transition to an individual coverage would be a good fix.

 

You can take cobra from your prior job for 18 months (this is the true cost of the coverage) -in Missouri we have had a high risk pool for years,  for individuals who can not get coverage - it is quiet expensive but guaranteed issue. I don't know if Michigan has anything similar.

 

Biggest problem overall? Cost is out of sight - Medical costs are very high and therefor the insurance to cover medical is also very high. Free market competition and consumers having the information they need to shop is the only way to lower cost without rationing care, stifeling innovation, and lowering quality.

 

I understand your frustration but please look at other solutions that keep us free. I have studied this monsterous act and seen it's effects already. Socialism is not the solution.

Tolerance and acceptance are not synonymous . In a civil society based on a limited Federal government we must tolerate one another and defend each others right to be wrong.

 

I don't think there is a thing that is positive about smoking dope. I saw plenty of it growing up and participated as well. I saw it hurt allot of folks and help none.

 

However, It is not the Federal Governments place to control the substances we consume. I sure don't see that in the list of enumerated powers granted to it by the states, and for good reason.

 

To say something is allowed as a personal freedom does not mean it is good thing - but that it is your business.

 

To stay free we must support each others individual liberty - especially when you think your neighbor is wrong. You don't have to accept it but you do have to tolerate it.
