"At Simon's Café..."Althouse has spotted the end of the cuteness trend.
Y'all have no idea how glad we are to have finally sold our old house (just last week). It was at a great--I kid you not--loss, but we were not, and never were we, underwater in the mortgage, thanks be. And we did not have to take money to the settlement table (though there was some great stress from a very long time, as to whether that would end up being the case).The timing thing was critically important.Now that we don't have to pay that mortgage, and every other thing that has to do with maintaining another old house (water, gas, electricity, sewage, trash, insurance, lawn and snow maintenance, taxes, etc. etc. and all that jazz), we will now barely be able to afford...what will roughly be close to maintaining a second mortgage, in terms of what our so-called health-care premiums will require as a firm, set monthly cost. Now, as to that large deductible that will go along with that...... it would require a sum at least 30-37 percent more than it cost us to maintain another house, monthly, over the past more than a year...except: for ever will that be so.---In another place, a few weeks, ago, I commented, pithily: "This is going to be like being on COBRA, only forever."Why, yes, yes it is.__(we know from COBRA, btw; we do)
The art of journalistic anticlimax"And unless [Obama] puts an end to his multiplying deceptions, Barack Obama’s presidency will not only lie in ruins; his reputation will as well."
rcommal, the COBRA comparison is apt. I went on that for a year or so about 18 years ago, and the cost was shocking. I switched as soon as possible to an individual Blue Cross plan that was affordable.Just wait until the other 80% years what's gonna happen to the employer-contracted plans.
I think he can't admit to having told baldfaced lies because his whole schtick will unravel if he does.
COBRA is a good comparison. A few years ago I briefly attempted to get coverage throught a Rhode Island law that allows former employees of a company that goes out of business to continue their coverage on their own dime. This was a kind of pseudo-COBRA; literal COBRA only applies to companies that fire people while continuing to stay in business.The cost of this pseudo-Cobra was appalling. What was worse was that no one had any clue how it was administered. As far as our doctors were concerned we had no coverage. As far as BCBS was concerned we owed them a bucket of money. Yet none of the agents knew how to tell our doctors we were covered. A nightmare.A lot of U.S. citizens are getting snakebit this year.
Lightworkers may trick the enemy, but they do not leave it to their followers to make the excuses and explanations.
