No, Ms. Harley. We are not stupid. We are courteous and polite and careful, unlike others.
I believe the original letter writer referred to " the dangers of driving with an unrestrained dog scampering around the driver’s compartment or sitting on the driver’s lap" - not a dog riding in the back of the vehicle.
You all have been very entertaining! I can't stop laughing at some of the things written here by both "sides." Too bad you all take sides instead of coming up with solutions, but it sure is fun to read!
I did not miss Don's point. I have read his opinions on this topic before. IMO, he does not want to pay for others' insurance coverage or medical costs.
You must not have any health issues as others do. No one should have to lose what they have worked for - their homes, for example - because they have a chronic illness or cancer or whatever. We all pay taxes for things we don't "use." Like paying school taxes for folks who do not have children.
Sympathize with you, Mr. Kibiloski. You shouldn't have to worry about people exceeding the speed limit on a curvy road when you're trying to get out of your driveway...but that's the way it is in my area also.
And when drivers don't stay on their side of the road (I guess if there is no centerline, they think it is a one-way road!) it makes travel on these types of roads worse.
I wrote a letter to the Roundup a couple months ago on behalf of my HOA praising the PPD's block watch program, but it was never published. Have you and your neighbors thought about joining that program? It is another tool in fighting the stupidity and carelessness of others.
Have you tried the website for yourself? Or on Medicare or an employer plan and may not need the Marketplace? It doesn't take much "navigating" as it is pretty good now. Took me several tries over 30 days, but got an account, then after a couple more tries, enrolled in a plan. Just follow the directions... You can always use the toll-free number instead. The chat works, too.
That said, would be glad to help you. Wanna get together?!
Come on, folks. Open your minds a bit before bashing something or someone.
The ACA website (healthcare.gov) works just fine. Saved me almost half of what I currently am paying AND I get better preventative coverage and a much lower deductible. Amazing what one finds out when one researches for him/herself. I found out that people with pre-existing conditions did get the screws put to them. Not anymore! Woo-hoo!
My premium is now almost half what it was as an individual insured through the ACA. And no, I do not receive assistance. And, yes, it is a better policy with a much lower deductible. Again, two sides...
Our British family members like their coverage and wonder why the U.S. doesn't have national health insurance. Two sides...
