  1. Since we are now bringing up Francis Scott Key and pointing out a third verse which is being thrown out to try and justify these actions, how about pointing out the actions, the REAL actions behind the song! Point out how many Americans DIED WHILE KEEPING THE Flag on Ft Henry up. Point out the fact the ONLY thing keeping that flag standing were the bodies of those DEAD AMERICANS ensuring that flag NEVER touched the ground! How about the reality of why that flag should NEVER touch the ground! Our National Anthem and that Flag mean something, to many, it means EVERYTHING! For s
  2. That is a crap statement and you know it. A majority of those 20 million will voluntarily decide NOT to purchase insurance. The CBO is counting them as losses. No one is ripping care away from anyone. That is a BS talking point being pushed.
  3. Not everything about the ACA is bad. There are good things which need to remain (preexisting conditions, children staying on to 26,etc). The individual mandate is not one of them. Individuals should not be forced to buy insurance or be fined. The ACA does not allow cross state line competition, many counties now are limited to available insurance and many more are going to be without coverage.
  4. There is no easy answer to this healthcare mess. However, until both Republicans and Democrats put the American people first, this is not going to change. Right now, it isn't about the American people, it is about partisan BS and about themselves, not us. Republicans and Democrats are acting like a bunch of whiny ****es putting blame on the other side while trying to say they are perfect or innocent of any wrongdoing. Neither side is right about this mess and they are both at fault.
  5. Yes, hospitals write off millions every year. Also depends on what hospital, we have non profit hospitals who absolutely write it off as bad debt. We have hospitals who pass off to taxpayers. The fix is NOT to give everyone free healthcare. It is not free, we taxpayers are ultimately the ones who pay for it.
  6. Agreed, but like I said, Soldiers know what to say and how to manipulate the system. They seem to get better at it every year.
  7. It was the Republicans who put this amendment into the ACA to ensure congressional members were put on the same HC system.
  8. It isn't if I agree or disagree with any of this. I am a Soldier and if implemented, I will fully support. However, theses were questions and concerns brought up during training and most are valid. I have opinions, however, when it comes to leading my Soldiers, my opinions do not matter, my leadership and what Army policy dictates is what matters. Was this boob enhancement a medical necessity? Was there a medical requirement for it? I am willing to bet there was. Soldiers are not authorized to get plastic surgery unless it is medically necessary, it is not a voluntary service. How
  9. Did you read what I said? Yes, put it into the free market, HOWEVER, put regulations in it to ensure no one gets thrown off plan, anyone who has preexisting conditions are covered, people with chronic conditions and require extensive care are covered. If you are elderly or have a preexisting condition, you will be covered. If you are able bodied and you choose NOT to pay for insurance, you should not be penalized for it. If you are able bodied and can work, you should work and pay for your own coverage if desired.
  10. You can spin it if you want, however, most of the amendments included were technical. One included the provision that the house and senate members need to enroll in the care themselves. After 2009, this became an all democrat bill. So, yes, your statement about inclusion is technically true, not true if you are trying to say Democrats included republicans totally.
  11. No, not wrong. Yes, the democrats held hearings, however, they used maneuvers to ram it through with party line votes to get approved, hell, they didn't even know what was in the bill (Nancy Pelosi: " we have to pass this bill to see what is inside it") when approved. They held hearings to give the appearance, but had no real input and asked for no real support from republicans. Even remember Pelosi and Harry Reid announcing they won the election and can basically do what they want. NO ONE is without blame for this mess! Both Republicans and Democrats share this mess and instea
  12. People have already lost health insurance, whether it is because there is no carrier where they are or their premiums are so high they can't afford it or the deductibles are so high they can't visit a Dr. Can we please stop with the great ACA and lie about how good it is. Most democrats agree it is a problem, however, they are so tied up with winning or losing, they won't come to the table. They didn't include republicans when they passed ACA, now want to act like it is a travesty they aren't included in this process (they have refused). Republicans are not without blame either, they had 8
  13. Man, as much as I love the President, I can't jump into his head sometimes and figure out why he said or tweeted anything. Can anyone? Yes, we were told Mattis wanted to delay implementation to get more information. Why? My best guess is the questions and concerns brought up during the training process. The training we received brought up A LOT of questions from Sr leaders about standards, policies and overall effectiveness. I believe this is the reason why it delayed. I dont think Pres Trump gives ANYONE a heads up on what he tweets, but I do not believe he did this withou
  14. Below is a statement taken directly out of the training presentation (you asked me to back it up with instruction) and goes directly to the statement I made about the transition period. When asked to clarify this, the officer (LTC from Behavior Health) giving the class said it would happen away from place of duty, when asked to clarify more about "away from place of duty and off duty status", his statement was "think of this as the Soldier is on leave and away from unit for a period of time". What does that statement mean to you? How do you interpret that? Real life experienc
  15. That is pure BS and fake news! The Sec of Defense put a temporary halt to transgender issue in June BEFORE it was to take full effect (we were briefed on his decision when it happened). He wanted this studied more and asked for more input from his military leaders before full implementation. Everyone in the Military was being given training on what to expect, what policies were being put in place and how to handle this change once/if it was fully implemented. President Trump did not go around the Sec of Defense with this.
