Big insurance has been

Big insurance has been serving turd sandwiches for decades and here you are trying to sell it as filet.

"Who said that you can decide what other people think is a good plan for them. I is really none of our business." This is your quote from the other day.... Guess it doesn't apply to you?

The whole uproar over these

The whole uproar over these policy cancelations is completely overblown. Only about 5% of Americans purchase insurance on the individual market, and not even ALL of those policies are being cancelled.

...of that 5%, it's projected that more than half will pay less for similar or even more comprehensive insurance plans.

So all we're really talking about is the 2% of Americans that will end up paying more for insurance, but they'll at least have a laundry list of consumer protections to go along with that price increase... cry me river.

There's actually five different levels of coverage—catastrophic, bronze, silver, gold, and platinum—and there are plans offered by multiple private insurers in each level. Saying there is only three plans is simply a lie.

...and you don't have to buy insurance on the exchange, you can still buy it through the open market.

Actually they're a conservative group of ex councilors that organized the effort to vote down the proposed school budget, the same people you gave kudo's to.

That isn't the purpose of the the tablets... the school still has computer labs if a student needs to sit down and type a paper. iPads (and tablets) are excellent for CONSUMING information, which is the goal of the "in class" time. They're also cheaper than laptops.

This is true.... the whole community did nothing but watch this building degrade for years, and now that someone is actually taking action on the property it is suddenly treasure to the community.

I can see for myself that he didn't imply that at all, I was trying to figure out where YOU saw that. You have a talent for misrepresenting others words and ideas.
