    If not, why haven’t they?

    Here is a brief debunking from Mediamatters.org

    Myth: Health care reform will provide health insurance to illegal immigrants.

    Fact: No federal benefits go to those who are not legally in the United States.

    House Bill: “No Federal Payment for Undocumented Aliens.” According to America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009, Page 143, Line 3, Section 246: “No Federal Payment for Undocumented Aliens. Nothing in this subtitle shall allow Federal payments for affordability credits on behalf of individuals who are not lawfully present in the United States.” [America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009]

    Myth: A government-run plan will encourage seniors to choose an early death.

    Fact: Counseling will be offered to seniors on a voluntary basis.

    “Sec. 1233 of the bill, labeled ‘Advance Care Planning Consultation’ details how the bill would, for the first time, require Medicare to cover the cost of end-of-life counseling sessions. According to the bill, ’such consultation shall include the following: An explanation by the practitioner of advance care planning, including key questions and considerations, important steps, and suggested people to talk to; an explanation by the practitioner of advance directives, including living wills and durable powers of attorney, and their uses; an explanation by the practitioner of the role and responsibilities of a health care proxy.’” [PolitiFact.com, 7/16/09]

    MYTH: The government-run plan will allow taxpayer funds to pay for abortions.

    Fact: Private insurance companies decide whether or not to cover abortions and consumers can choose a plan in line with their own beliefs.

    Abortion Is Not Mandated In The Reform Legislation. According to Planned Parenthood: “Nothing in any of the current health care reform bills mandates abortion coverage – or any other type of medical procedure – in the Exchange. Abortion is not mandated any more than any other medical procedure in health care reform.” [PlannedParenthood.org, accessed 7/30/09]

    MYTH: We don’t need an overhaul of health care.

    Fact:…there are millions of people who can’t get health insurance. And those people cost you, and everyone else with insurance, more because they often can’t pay for the care they do receive. Your premiums go up each year in part to help cover the cost of those who can’t afford to go to the doctor and end up having to go to the emergency room instead.

    MYTH: A public option will result in Americans being forced out of their current plans.

    Fact: House Bill Allows For Continuation Of Current Coverage. According to PolitiFact.com: “The House bill allows for existing policies to be grandfathered in, so that people who currently have individual health insurance policies will not lose coverage.” [PolitiFact.com, 7/22/09]

    MYTH: A government option will result in health care rationing for Americans.

    Fact: Health care is already rationed by insurance companies.

    Private insurance companies ration care to Americans every single day. They reject applications based on pre-existing conditions and family history. They rescind coverage after an illness has been diagnosed. Their premiums and deductibles are so high that millions of Americans are forced to delay care or declare bankruptcy due to high costs.

    MYTH: Government-run health care will put a bureaucrat between you and your doctor.

    Fact: There is already a bureaucrat between you and your doctor. It’s called the insurance company.

    The private health insurance industry bureaucrats are standing between you and your doctor right now. They hire outside firms to determine how much you might cost them. Private insurance companies make decisions on who does and does not get health care based solely on how much they value your life.

    MYTH: A government option will force private insurance companies out of business.

    Fact: It will provide competition for insurance companies where there is currently a lack of competition.

    The introduction of more competition in the health insurance market will not put private companies out of business – it will force them, in true free-market style, to meet the demands of consumers and to start providing quality coverage to all Americans.


    Senate Democrats Have Proposed That Public Health Care Should “Comply With All The Rules And Standards That Apply To Private Insurance” To Ensure That Private Insurance Can Compete. According to the New York Times: “In an effort to defuse the most explosive issue in the debate over comprehensive health care legislation, a top Senate Democrat has proposed that any new government-run insurance program comply with all the rules and standards that apply to private insurance. The proposal was made Monday by Senator Charles E. Schumer of New York, the third-ranking member of the Senate Democra

    I have had it,I HATE that day halloween,I am not going to celebrate it anymore,I hate everything about satans holiday,why would people put razor blades in apples and in candy and then give them out to little children knowing what is going to happen to them,why would anyone poison candy and then give it away(my family has fresh candy from the store) this year I will watch Christmas movies on Halloween,I will not even answer a question about Halloween,

    We are all familiar with the fact that every year, hundreds of children are poisoned or injured by ingesting tainted Halloween candy. Sadistic madmen seem to come out at this time, threatening the safety of our nation�s youth. However, there is one issue that inevitably fails to arise, the fact that Halloween candy tampering is basically a myth.

    READ THIS IF YOU LOVE TO trick or treat.-I will also post this on my 360 page till October.

    Tales of tampered candy and others like it are based more on our unreasonable collective fears, fueled by the media and hearsay, than on factual information. The fear surrounding tainted Halloween treats goes back for decades and may have originally stemmed from an incident in 1964. A New York housewife, annoyed that many of the trick-or-treaters were too old to be asking for free candy, decided to make up packages of inedible treats to give the teens. The packages contained steel wool, dog biscuits and ant buttons. To her credit, she did clearly label the ant buttons “POISON” and cautioned the teenagers of her little prank. No one was injured, but the potential for harm was there, so the District Attorney prosecuted and she plead guilty to endangering children.

    National panic about candy tampering didn�t reach an epidemic proportion however, until the New York Times ran an article in 1970 claiming that “Those Halloween goodies that children collect this weekend on their rounds of �trick or treating� may bring them more horror than happiness.” (NY Times, 10/28/70, pg. 56) The article went on to give specific and horrifying examples of potential tamperings. Since the Times article, the media has kept that fear alive. Even “Dear Abby” got in on the action by reminding parents of the danger that “�somebody�s child will become violently ill or die after eating poisoned candy or an apple containing a razor blade.”

    The truth about the dangers might not have been discovered, were it not for California researchers Joel Best and Gerald Horiuchi, who studied national crime data going back to 1958. In their 1985 published study, they found only 76 reports of any kind of tampering. Most of them turned out to be mistaken or fraudulent. Out of these 76 reports, only three incidents of children dying were reported to be tainted candy cases. In one case, the father of a Houston boy gave him arsenic laced candy to collect on a large insurance claim. In the second case, a boy stumbled across his uncle�s stash of heroin, ingested some of the drug and died. This boy�s family tried to hide the facts by sprinkling heroin over some of his other candy, but the family soon confessed to their cover-up. And in the third case, a Los Angeles girl had a fatal seizure that was first blamed on tainted candy, but later discovered to be the result of a congenital heart condition.

    Has massive tampering of foodstuffs ever occurred? We all probably know that the answer is an unfortunate “yes.” Following the aftermath of the 1982 Tylenol murders, there was a sudden increase in tamperings that reached a level never before achieved. During this brief moment in time, there were various objects inserted into Halloween candy, and poisons introduced into non-Halloween foods and medicines, however, no significant injuries were reported over the Halloween weekend.

    So where does this leave us? Unfortunately, the media hype of the few events that have actually occurred serves as a potent enough reinforcer of our beliefs that an article like this will have little effect in the long run. However, you now have the information that you need to make a reasonable decision regarding the practice of accepting candy over this holiday weekend. The real question is, “Will you use it?”

  • Brice says:

    The Obama-Biden plan for health care will put the federal government increasingly in control of decisions previously made by private businesses. The plan also seeks government funding for health care costs previously paid for by private businesses and corporations, essentially making all American taxpayers financially responsible for health care costs, regardless of whether or not they wish to contribute financially to the health care needs of others. Some details include:

    * Requiring “insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions so all Americans regardless of their health status or history can get comprehensive benefits at fair and stable premiums.” Insurers may not cover pre-existing conditions now in order to protect themselves and their clients from rising costs associated with those conditions that could rapidly make premiums even much more expensive than they are. Requiring coverage of pre-existing conditions not only interferes with the natural right of private individuals and businesses to freely enter into contracts but also will lead to increased — not decreased — costs.
    * “Covering a portion of the catastrophic health costs [businesses] pay in return for lower premiums for employees.” However commendable this may seem, it nevertheless is a forced redistribution of wealth. It is unavoidable that this will be an expensive federal program, that, like every other federal program, will expand over time. As such it will be funded by taxpayers, who will see the federal hand taking money from their wallets to give to others, in this case as subsidies to businesses to offset health care costs.

    Total federal outlays for the Obama-Biden health care plan: $50-$65 billion according to the website. The costs will be covered, you guessed it, by increasing taxes on the wealthy.

    As this brief analysis indicates, the Obama-Biden plan as described in documents and pages on the campaign website amount to, essentially, a modern socialist encyclopedia.

    There is no doubt that Barack Obama is a tremendously talented speaker, and perhaps an inspiring leader. That does not mean that his policies are in keeping with the vision of limited government given form by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution.

    Rather, like most of those who have either sought the Presidency or actually occupied the White House, from either of the two major parties — and this includes John McCain as well — he seeks a radically expanded role for the federal leviathan in Washington.

  • Trinidad says:

    Obama has decided to impose an abortion ban for women in the newly-created high risk insurance pools. There is nothing in the law that requires this.

    They won’t allow states to choose to cover abortion and won’t even give women the option to buy abortion coverage using their own money.

    This is the “leftist” Obama? Sounds pretty right-wing to me.


    This link to the ACLU website is NOT to be construed as an endorsement of this establishment liberal organization by me — I’m a socialist and have MANY disagreements with them (not the least their defense of every consitutional right EXCEPT the Second Amendment).

    So why do you think Obama and the liberals have decided to kick women in the face with this evil act?

    Yet another reason for why I’m a socialist, and not a liberal or a supporter of the “Democratic” Party!
    Dewdrop, this was NOT in the law — this was a voluntary extra by the Obama administration.

  • Kermit says:

    The only state in the US to have Universal Health care, is now shutting down the free health care, because they do not have the funds to cover all the children. Parents droppedtheirr insurance on their children, and opted for free govthealthh care and now Hawaii does not have to money to fund free health care for all its children. Now it is time for every one to see, that UHC is not the way to go, it is going to break the govt. and the estimate cost of $50-60 billion dollars a year, will not even cover free health care. It has not worked in Hawaii, and is not going to work for our nation. The children will no longer have coverage as of Nov. 1st.

    This was reported by our local news I do not know if it is posted on their web site But it is WRAL.com

    What do you think about this and knowing that UHC is going to be a huge failure, unless of course Obama increases everyones taxes, and he will and even then it will be a stretch to make it work. Will this affect your vote in any way?

    I am suffering from a panic/anxiety disorder which has brought about severe depression. I have been unable to concentrate, eat, sleep, work, or socialize with family or friends. I am seeing a therapist & we are working my way out from this black hole.

    My question centers around the STD disability claim that I filed w/my employer’s insurance company. They denied my claim citing lack of comprehensive doctor’s notes to support the diagnosis; and they also said that I’ve been able to go to school without missing any classes (which is not true…I’ve had to fight to get to class and class is only 1 hour long, 3 nights a week…vs. work which is 8 hrs, 5 days).

    So, my question is….has anyone else been denied from their private insurance carrier for STD due to anxiety &/or depression? And if yes, what would you suggest I do from here to get them to reopen my claim & approve it?

    NOTE: Anything you can provide regarding my claim would be helpful. I only ask that everyone be kind.

    Last May 2010, I struggled with my mom being disapproved of my recent engagement. I seeked help from a therapist who suggested I try antidepressants to help with my situation. I went to my doctor who gave me the Zung test to determine if I had depression. The results came out in normal range. When I applied for STD and LTD coverage through my work in October 2010, I was denied coverage due to a history of depression. I had selected yes on a question that I misunderstood on my Statement of Health and input information that I had taken anti-depressants. I had only taken the anti-depressants for 2 months as a trial to see if it would help, but it did nothing for me so I discontinued taking them. When I was denied this first time, I went back to my physician to write a note that I was no longer taking the medication and I currently do not show signs of depression. When I receive a decline in coverage again this year, I called the insurance company and based on the wording “currently” does not provide enough validation of not being depressed. They had provided me no further info. I went back to my physician this year to get a new note clarifying my “depression”. The note states: Patient was seen. Scored a ## on a Zung scale being less than 50 being within normal range, no psychopathology, no depression. She has no known history of depression. So, based on my situation with getting coverage and writing my appeal letter. I am not sure how much to include and how much to keep brief. So far what I have in mind are: requesting review of decision, stating it was a situational event with family that caused me to consult with my physician and providing doctors note stating no clinical diagnosis of depression, misunderstanding of question in SOH regarding depression question. Should I explain what the family situtaion is in the letter? What I have now in mind be enough of a strong case? Please help me if I should go in detail or if I have a valid claim against the denial.

I was told that we’ll need to go through customs, gather our luggage, and then check in afterwards to our next flight, possibly paying for luggage.

    I know for a fact that my Finnish husband needs to get a temporary Visa to fly through. Will I need some sort of Visa as well? If so, do you know where I would get it? Is there anything else I need to know that’s incredibly important with regards to connecting through the USA?
