re: Louisiana Third Circuit Election Today - TBoy
At least Perret has broad experience. The rumor blog, the Independent, has been focused solely on reporting dirt from years ago. Perret is not under investigation. It's all rumors, no reality. I supported Theall in the race where she was elected but she was awful as a judge. Anseman droppe...

re: With Trumpcare sinking, perhaps Congress should adjust the ACA - TBoy
After Republicans took the house and senate, democrats could pass Amy legislation to adjust the ACA. Republican control has halted the process. It's time to drop that shut and get to work. ...

There's plenty of fail to go around - TBoy
The House Republicans have been writing repeal legislation for years, but apparently they have failed to actually ever study the issue to formulate any workable alternative. Trump shot off his mouth, demanding a bill be passed by an arbitrary deadline but failing to understand that the bill was c...

re: With Trumpcare sinking, perhaps Congress should adjust the ACA - TBoy
I thought the last election determined the fate of the ACA. Since it obviously didn't, it should be time to roll up some sleeves and do real work. Grandstanding doesn't work when you control both houses and the executive....

re: With Trumpcare sinking, perhaps Congress should adjust the ACA - TBoy
In a purely partisan world, both sides have an interest in the present health care situation getting worse. The lobbyists for the drug companies and stakeholders like the current law because they are sucking ridiculous amounts of money. We, the policy holders, are the ones getting screwed. The ...

re: With Trumpcare sinking, perhaps Congress should adjust the ACA - TBoy
The problem now is that Republicans demand that it be repealed and replaced with, according to Trump and others, "something better." However, they have no actual idea what they want the law to be. All I'm suggesting is that since they can't agree on a complete rewrite of healthcare law, they sho...

re: With Trumpcare sinking, perhaps Congress should adjust the ACA - TBoy
A couple of things come to mind right away. We can approve sales across state lines and limit drug price markups. I'm sure there are other things that can be done right away without having to have one party or the other "dictate" the changes. ...

With Trumpcare sinking, perhaps Congress should adjust the ACA - TBoy
Any rational person can see that the ACA has needed adjustments since day 1 but the Republican Congress exacerbated the problems to push repeal. Now that repeal is slipping away, perhaps it is time to fix the law....
