Yes.. I am surprised. The United States Census Bureau employs thousands of people in many many different fields of work. I have no doubt. Math specialists..... Statistics people who live for it ....and data collectors who go pick it all up. Those people I can see being home right now. There is a shutdown on, after all.

What part of the website...and not the site itself, of course, just menu options...costs extra to require shutting down?

Is there something about the display of 2010 Census data I could see last week which cost extra money to see this week..and hence..required shut down for lack of funding? If the WHOLE SITE and server were down, Okay I could say it's hardware shutdown because that DOES cost money. A menu option and static web page? That does not cost money on a daily basis..and hence, has no requirement to be shut down for economic reasons.

Only spiteful ones....and spite is the order of the day.

ok i may be wrong on this but this is how it was explained to me regarding my case and may not apply to every one but...

if you live in a state that did not vote to expand medicaid( i THINK thats the correct term) you are not eligible for low cost coverage but you are also not required to pay the fine for not having insurance

i was told this is the case due to the supreme court ruling saying that states dont have to expand medicaid but if iim wrong id like to at least know whats really going on as i have said insurance stuff goes so far over my head it might as well be the space shuttle

Exactly....

It's barely scraping by around here.

Now you have a large portion of that for a mandated rippoff.

What the hell, who needs to eat anyways. If your lucky you might be able to afford duct tape to tape your shoes together, because new clothing is a thing of the past.

Ugh, yeah, that is exactly what I do for my shoes. Shoes get ruined and fall apart way faster than I can afford to buy others, so I end up using PL and duct tape on them. Clothes too, really. If someone woulda told me ten years ago how life would be now, I would have called them nuts.

What plan is she getting? Bronze? Silver? Other??? Also, sounds like she would be the optimal candidate for the tax credit, one that could be near $5000 +/-, a credit that can be paid/applied upfront. I am by no means a Obamacare supporter, but for someone with no health care (I assume she has none?) It does not sound like a bad deal...


She told me $100 a month.

Now that might not seem like a bad deal, but when you work just above minimum wage an extra $100 a month is just unreal. Tax credit or not. You still have to pay it and then hope like hell you get the tax credit.

It's just the principal in the gov't mandating
everyone buy a product.

If you do not see a problem with forced anything then the governnrnt propaganda has been working all these year .

Im not trying to be mean or a smart az to you.

I am just stating that this is a real problem here.


No, I understand, and as I said I am not a supporter by any means. I was just saying that $100 a month (or less perhaps in this case) is not bad for entry level health care if and when your only other option is to have none. By the way, the tax penalty for not having coverage would only be like $200 or $300 this year so it really is up to her. But to be able to purchase your own health care for $100 (or less) per month, even at the bronze plan percentages, it very reasonable.

But yes, I do understand the issue of this being forced down our throats.

Yeah that's what I mean... according to the Gov. $19,000 per year for a single person houshold is like 165% over poverty level... I don't get that.

She said she's going to pay the penalty.

... which is an added burden that she didn't have before Obama's 'affordable' health care.
Now she's out the money and she doesn't have healthcare. SUCKY.
