Here's what GOP should do on Obamacare - GeneralLee
Screw reconciliation, draft a bill based on the Rand Paul/Mark Santorum plan. Put it up for a vote which will almost certainly fail in the Senate. Get these GOP cucks and Red State Dems on the record for continuing to defend this abomination. Put the bill up for a vote again and again each time t...

re: American Health Care Act (Obamacare Replacement) introduced - GeneralLee
[quote]Trump administration is inviting everyone's input while making this legislation. Compare that to Obama's administrations you have to pass it to see what's in it! [/quote] Eh... 48 hours for a 123 page bill with this one versus 24 hours for a 1000+ page bill for Obamacare. Not really that ...

re: Need financial advice - GeneralLee
So sorry to hear your diagnosis, your family is in our thoughts. One question I have for this scenario you detailed is would the bank let you refinance into a 30 year mortgage if neither you nor your wife worked anymore. I'm not sure if the disability payments would count from the bank's under...

Anybody got thoughts on what the Exxon announcement implies for LNGLF? Seems like at face value it would be bearish as some of LNGLF's potential customers would likely contract with Exxon now. ...

re: Is leverage a must to your investing? - GeneralLee
Your example is too simplistic and inaccurate in large portions. Good luck achieving a 10% return in Lending Club. I did a trial portfolio in Lending Club and was targeting a 10% return but came up well short and am in the process of liquidating those loans. Their borrower underwriting process ha...

re: How the heck does GOP Obamacare plan not include interstate competition - GeneralLee
I read an article on zerohedge about it, and according to them it starts interstate competition and medical malpractice reform can't be passed under the reconciliation process, so those would have to be separate bills. [quote]A breakdown of core aspects removed from the existing law (courtesy o...

re: How the heck does GOP Obamacare plan not include interstate competition - GeneralLee
[quote]Because this is the start, it will change as the debate begins.[/quote] Why the hell should there even be a debate about having more competition? And I thought this is the one shot, they probably don't have time to draft a new bill and get a budget passed in time....

How the heck does GOP Obamacare plan not include interstate competition - GeneralLee
for the plan premiums? This is the biggest no brainer to bring healthcare costs down in the system, as right now there are many states with only one or two insurers. It would be better to leave Obamacare in place and let it die on its own course than pass this joke of a replacement plan. GOP will...

[quote]can someone recap in plain american what this all means. [/quote] Nobody knows for sure. Both sides are relying on "unnamed sources" at this point. My reading of what we've seen so far is that there was some sort of investigation into Trump and Russia, not explicitly ordered by Obama...

Obamacare fallback strategy... - GeneralLee
Let's say for some reason that a full scale repeal and replace of Obamacare can't be passed this year. Why couldn't they pass single, popular elements of the replacement plan as separate bills? I know this would open it up to needing 60 votes in the Senate, but do you really think 40 senators woul...

re: Starting a buisness (farming) and curious where to start - GeneralLee
Farming is a tough business to be in, if you do it it should be because you love it not because you expect it to generate large profits. Livestock, particularly feeder cattle, is probably a breakeven business at best most years because a large portion of the nation's herd is from mom and pop 50 c...
