    It's a Team's Life Where will you spend Thanksgiving? : It's a Teams Life

    I am spending Thanksgiving morning out on Lake Erie with friends, layout hunting. The rest of the day will be spent at home, with family. The plan for Friday is to take some disabled military veterans out for a hunt on the Lake. Maybe again on Saturday, although another ice up may end the...

    It's a Team's Life Home for the holidays or not: It's a Teams Life

    We will stay home. We have stayed out in the past and ended up in motels or at truck stops for the entire 4 day weekend. The only time we were not at a truck stop or motel was the year we did a DH out of Alaska. Our food is also FAR better than anything you will EVER find out on the road.

    It's a Team's Life Government Shutdown: It's a Teams Life

    According to this article there have been 14 MILLION health insurance policies cancelled due to Obama Care. That may be a greater number cancelled than new policies issued to before plan uninsured. We could very well end up with FEWER Americans covered that before Obama Care was forced on us...

    It's a Team's Life Government Shutdown: It's a Teams Life

    There are the real problems too. We are both over 60, health problems are more real with each passing year. No real insurance, age, is a recipe for disaster. I just felt like I was kicked in the balls, twice, once when our policy got cancelled and again when I saw what we were going to have...

    They can kiss my .................. :mad: No more! I am done. I have no more in my budget. IF they are not going to hold the "Liar in Chief" feet to the fire and restore what we CAN afford, well, the hell with them. You can't get blood out of a rock.

    "I found this on the web. Trying to figure out where all the entitlement programs and mandated programs fit in this. Seems they are providing not promoting. Guess that's what gets the votes!" What we have is laziness and irresponsibility being rewarded and hard word and responsible living being...

    "This bill was not made for you or me. It was made for those already on the take. The 47%. We, being the 53%, get to pay for the 47%. So suck it buttercup, that's the way it is until such time as this thing gets reversed if ever." Well, as it stands now, we cannot afford ANY of the programs...

    It's a Team's Life Government Shutdown: It's a Teams Life

    One plan we looked at was $404 per month THIS year, next year it is $808. I am STILL waiting for ANYONE to explain how taking away affordable plans and replacing them with UN-AFFORDABLE plans benefits anyone?

    It's a Team's Life Government Shutdown: It's a Teams Life

    That would be the best solution, outlaw health insurance. Get rid of punitive regulations. The current situation is punitive to everyone. It punishes responsible action and rewards irresponsibility. It does NOT provide useful coverage for anyone and takes away useful coverage that many did...

    It's a Team's Life Government Shutdown: It's a Teams Life

    Last year my wife had surgery. It is my job to insure that there is money there for that. Pay a FINE? To not be allowed to have coverage that I have now? Does the REALLY make sense? It is irresponsible to not provide for the needs of one's family. Try this again and make sense of it. Sally and...

    Yet ANOTHER cute little tidbit on the health care plans. FIRST you have to pay the premiums, THEN the deductible, THEN you see benefit from the policy. SO using exact numbers from a real plan: My Priority HSA Bronze 6000 Premium: 660.92 per month that is $7931.04 per year Deductible: $6000...

    Nope, live FREE or die. The guys, wimps, who ran up there in the '60's, were cowards. The useless dope smoking pieces of dog snot that they were. Real men take a stand, they don't run. Obama would have joined them, the sniveling coward he is. They can all eat stuff and puke. As all who asked...

    It's a Team's Life Government Shutdown: It's a Teams Life

    I don't know what to do. We cannot afford ANY plan out there. I CAN'T work two jobs, like I would have in the past, and load rates are falling. I am 62, I can no longer start over. I am SCARED and VERY ANGRY. Not a good combination. Obama is a Marxist and a LOT of FOOLS fell for it. It may be...

    Yep, the plan all along. But FIRST! Ruin as many lives as they can. :mad: As I have said on this from day one, this plan has NOTHING to do with providing health care, it is all about control.

    Interesting. We found a plan that would cover what we needed and it is ONLY $404 per year, BUT WAIT, in Jan 2015 it jumps to $838! What a BARGAIN!!! And to make it even better, the co-pays go up too! How great is that? :mad: Yep, not doubt, a bad bill, even baby steps, is better than nothing...

    There are millions in this country that are going through the same thing. What is sad is that there is almost NO reporting on what is going on.

    HEY! We are truckers, SO, be VERY careful when looking at "approved" Obama Care plans. So far, one of the plans makes it VERY clear that they do NOT cover the costs for surgery for obstructive sleep apnea. How does THAT float your boat?

    There are also direct subsidies, IF I remember correctly. We have spoken with our CPA and he says that tax credits will not do us any good.

    First off, I don't take welfare. I EARN and pay my OWN way. I have paid for our insurance since 1973. NOW, thanks to Obama Care, I cannot afford it. Leave my old plan in place, as we were promised, I would not have a problem. I was not having a problem UNTIL Oct 1. As to the subsidies, we make...
