Headlines I Wish I Hadn’t Seen

EPA tested deadly pollutants on humans.

    How comes? Do they just ignore the bill?

    • Jay says:

      That’s what the government did after all the extensions that were set in place for ObamaCare, like the enrollment deadline for example.

      • Connor says:

        Yeah, they are continuing to ignore the bad parts of the law. Extending enrollment dates over and over.

  2. Thomas says:

    I wonder how many individuals are neglecting their bills from the other major insurance providers. Blue Cross Blue Shield losing 20% of its enrollees will harm the future of ObamaCare.

    • Andrew says:

      “would translate into somewhere between 5.7 and 6 million people who are actually covered.”

      Also how many of those are “young invincibles” that are supposed to take the brunt of the cost for ACA. I would bet the majority of people paying their premiums are the older crowd.

  3. Matthew says:

    “The agency conducted tests on people with health issues and the elderly, exposing them to high levels of potentially lethal pollutants, without disclosing the risks of cancer and death”

    How could the EPA possibly get away with this without widespread panic and news coverage? Color me skeptical.

    “They say prolonged antibiotic use can cause gastrointestinal problems and the furthering of drug-resistant organisms”

    This is why long term antibiotic use is dangerous for people. It can make people resistant to other organisms and destroy stomach flora and “good” bacteria that we all need.

      No long term antibiotic use if you have other options to choose.

    Most of the knuckleheads at EPA believe humans are the true pests who are the despoilers of the environment.

    I have written this before- from Blue Cross’s perspective, they are getting 15-20% of enrollees paying the bill. This does not mean the 7.1 million touted by Obama has 15-20% non-payers- we already know the administration took the most liberal version of an enrollee which isn’t always a person who requested a bill in the first place. The non-payment of the 7.1 million is almost surely a higher fraction than the 15-20%.
