At least Detroit can’t get any worse. Things are looking up.

"Customers will pay more, but they also will get more coverage now", noted Gail Jensen Summers ...

That's the line Obama was spewing ...

If the consumer has to pay more, then Obama lied.

If you can’t keep your same policy, then Obama lied.

If more people are not being covered, then Obama lied.

Obama lied, America died.

I beg to differ, the majority of odungo’s voters came from Automation Alley (Wayne, MaComb,Oakland, Gennessee counties, supported by the libtards in Washtenaw). Gotta love the electoral college.

the ceo of aetna was on cnbc.

Michigan elected and re-elected a fraud named Stupak. sp?

My wife is on Medicare with United Insurance. She got a questionnaire today they ASKED her to fill out. The first question was “Are you over all happy with your life?” Are you kidding me? She threw it in the trash.

Be sure to remind your reps and governor that we warned them and they ignored us.

Yep. 35-year old males now have maternity care and pediatric dental coverage.

There's no point in arguing with the no info FReepers, they won't acknowledge being wrong. Fortunately there is considerable support for doing away with our winner take all electoral system in Michigan and going with a system that only gives votes for the districts won.

Michigan elected and re-elected a fraud named Stupak.

Voters in 1 district elected Stupak but that district has since elected tea party backed Dan Benishek. It should be pointed out to democrats that Stupak's vote for Obamacare didn't come cheap. He was rewarded with a full partnership at Venable LLP.

The Honorable Bart Stupak

Ya and he is hoping he is the sheep the wolves will eat last. Idiots, he will have no industry by then, but he will be given a concierge service, probably access to the same plan the Senate has and will be retired by the time it happens.

It is time to really look into this Christian medical participation plan / exemption...

3/4 of the state probably did NOT vote for the “lying brown fool.” Wayne and Washtenaw Counties make the rest of us virtually powerless. Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo are becoming overrun, too.

I hate it when everyone thinks that Detroit=Michigan, not the case at all.

Makes you wonder if Medicare and Tricare Life the Military’s over 645 health ins secondary to Medicare meets the standards. As they only pay a very small portion of any medical or medicine bill. Hubby’s 2 day ER stay because there was no room in the small hospital was $50K, between the 2 they paid $2,500 and sent a co-pay for the adult asprin and 6 nitro pastes they used. He walked the tread mill, and they monitored him, and did a CT scan. That was not $50K worth of medical treatment. And the $2,500 does not meet the 85% pay out demanded by 0’care.

Try getting DAMAGED CARE from Amazon or Netflix it is the story of the DEATH PANELS inside the HMO’s that got exposed. And you can bet your bottom dollar that 0’care has them too. Ms. Palin was RIGHT!
