Re: “Rutledge unhappy about Supreme Court decision on gay rights

Re: “New analysis from Congressional Budget Office: 22 million would lose coverage

And if you're uninsured for more than 63 days you can be denied insurance for a minimum of 6 months.


https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/26/upshot/…

Senate Republicans made only one big change in a new version of their Senate health bill released Monday: They added a penalty for Americans who let their insurance lapse for 63 days or more.

Under the new provision, those who go without insurance will be locked out of getting coverage for at least six months after they sign up.

The idea is to placate insurers who were alarmed when the bill was released on Thursday without any means to nudge people into the market. This lockout period would, in theory, create an incentive for people to have insurance all the time, instead of waiting to sign up when they become ill. But its not clear how effective this will really be.

It's been said that one's best weapons is a brain. It's true. That's why razor carries.

Re: “Rutledge unhappy about Supreme Court decision on gay rights

Dear Mrs. Johnson,

6-3 is a decisive victory these days with the Supreme Court. You lost. Decisively. There are no alternative facts that make it otherwise. Equal means equal, doesn't matter who ya love.

Rainbow blessings,
All of Us All

Re: “Supreme Court orders Arkansas to stop birth certificate discrimination

We're reaching the point that DNA can identify medical conditions better than personal/family history. Especially when - and it's true - ancestral history may not be what it seems. Just saying.

Re: “Arkansas officials sued over efforts to extradite man wrongly arrested

Razor - Did he have prior arrests that would put his prints in the system? Because if there's nothing to match it to, then what were they supposed to do? Also, 30+ years ago the computerized system wasn't what it is now, and even now it's sorely lacking as far as being a comprehensive database.

Re: “Supreme Court orders Arkansas to stop birth certificate discrimination

John Roberts is being pushed to the left by the idiocy of the right.
