Cobb opinions on health care law follow party lines …
WIlkerson ridiculous — Wilkerson stated it is FREE money from the government. Where does the government get that money Wilkerson? Oh yes, the 48% of us who pay taxes! Nothing is free in the US. 48% of us who do pay taxes are watching our hard earned take home pay shrink due to the 52% of the Americans and millions of illegals who don’t pay crap. I am tired of having to carry those irresponsible people who do not do their part to support the US. I do agree that insurance carriers should not be able to turn people down for pre-existing conditions. I do agree something needs to be done. I don’t agree that this should fall on my shoulders. Those who love this plan are the usual freeloaders. Our country will go bankrupt. VOTE OBAMA OUT!
Ole Man — You are so correct about Wilkerson. he is like most Democrats that think Washington has the money, but do not realize the money is taken from hard working people to give handouts to those to damn lazy to get off their backsides and go to work.
LIB IN COBB— I will say to Katy Misel, the KSU student, the government does require everyone to have automobile insurance.
BUT... — Yes, you are required by STATE governments to have automobile insurance. The Federal Government does not require you to have it. That is completely different than what the health care law is doing.
Tired of it — ONLY if you drive a vehicle on public roads you are to have car insurance. You are not required to have a car that is your CHOICE
Gary Burley — Katy better get some damn insurance because I’m darned if I’m going to pay for her when she gets ill.
JDTBQ — And, because you can purchase insurance across state lines for your car, your jewelery, your home, even your pets, insurance carriers are in competition for your business, and policies are much more affordable. Health insurers are restricted by the Federal government from this, so you’re pretty much stuck with taking the insurance that your employer (hopefully) offers, with skyrocketing premiums. But then again, the practice of offering health insurance through your employer was in response to the Federal government’s restriction on wage increases. So, Big Brother created a crisis, and now, Big Brother is the solution. Can’t wait.
Kennesaw museum firing upheld …
Southern Gal — This is a major loss to the museum! I just found out about this and am appauled. Harper Harris was a great asset to the musuem and to their fundraising. This man is very dedicated to his work and history. It is a shame that our own city officials could not defend this wonderful person. Shame on all of you!! As I always have said.... "What goes around, comes around" Harper, I wish you the best. You are loved and appreciated by many of us.
Call it like it is — Well, I'm shocked! You mean the city judge upheld the firing of a city employee, that was prosecuted by a city attorney? The entire original staff is now gone, replaced by those getting half the pay and have half the knowledge. Its a shame we no longer live in a city of honor. A city counsel that states they love you in private, but will say nothing in public. A museum foundation chaired by old men that can only think of putting their names on plaques and not stand up for a friend. Harper I wish you the best.
