One very good lawyer can make the truth into an abstract for most people.

G70 only wants one side, his and Andy's as they are the only ones that need to have a say. Communistic and progressive thoughts is all that they ever have so that's all they want to hear!

The topic is 'cheers and jeers', I read that somewhere. Looks like king Andy only wants moderate R's (progressive R's) and liberals like himself (progressive D's) around. Stupid lib, who's going to pay for New Yorktopia then????

I believe that this should be his campaign in his run for president! New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a radio interview that if “extreme conservatives” are “right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay,” then “they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.” So we are only what YOU BELIEVE IN MR GOVERNOR?

Lets say JEERS to Obama's NSA speech... Why? It was 5,400 words that did not pin a single thing down, at least it is not a promise that he wont keep! He talked in length about a problem and suggested, yes SUGGESTED that they should maybe change the rules but... actually said NOTHING! Do you know that the law that he is trampling over is the Fourth Amendment and it is only 54 words. Maybe like the 2nd amendment he just doesn't get it?

Every year thousands of Canadian have no choice but to seek medical care outside of the country’s single-payer health care system, according a report from a Canadian free-market think tank.

In 2013, nearly 42,000 Canucks left their homeland to avoid long wait times and inferior care that plagues their centralized health system.

All I know is that several were turned away. Some may have been a bit younger. But why then were seniors turned away?

Sounds fishy? Knickman's story it total BS. True senior citizens don't qualify for Obamacare because they receive Medicare at age 65. And no health insurance can be cancelled without written notice to the policy holder.

If my insurance company didn't send me a new ID card for 2014, and if I didn't pay a premium for my health insurance I would have a pretty good idea that I wasn't insured "probably". All the "seniors" that I know are well aware of their insurance coverage and your story sounds fishy.

Jeers to Obama care all right. A friend of my mothers was at a lab in Amsterdam this pass week to have blood work. She witnessed several mostly senior citizens turned away because the receptionist found that they no longer had health insurance. All of those turned away said they received no notification. Most likely because of the regulations associated with Obama care. Probably the cancellation took effect on Jan. 1.

JEERS once again to Obamacare, Early signals suggest the majority of the 2.2 million people who sought to enroll in private insurance through new marketplaces through Dec. 28 were previously covered elsewhere, raising questions about how swiftly this part of the health overhaul will be able to make a significant dent in the number of uninsured.

Insurers, brokers and consultants estimate at least two-thirds of those consumers previously bought their own coverage or were enrolled in employer-backed plans.

The data, based on surveys of enrollees, are preliminary. But insurers say the tally of newly insured consumers is falling short of their expectations, a worrying trend for an industry looking to the law to expand the ranks of its customers. One reason for people declining to purchase plans was affordability. That was cited by 52% of those who had shopped for a new plan but not purchased one in McKinsey's most recent sampling, performed in January.
