    It the law was so good, why are all those exemptions for the requirements given to unions? Why would we expect non union employees to pay more? If the law violates the constitution, then it is right and proper for it to be struck down.

    The temporary waivers were granted, on application and approval, to many employers and health plan providers, public and private, union and non-union, small and large businesses, city and state governments, to ensure continuity of coverage while transitioning to plans that are fully compliant.

    Frank is indeed the new Frances, complete with his own set of fantasy facts to bolster any ideological argument he wants to make. We tolerated him at BlueNC for awhile, but I’ll warn you, it takes a toll. When you have to confronting the harsh reality of purposeful ignorance day after day, it gives you pause. In my case, I feel a real sense of fear for our state and nation. We are swirling down the drain with “drill baby drill” cheerleaders championing the decline.

    America has become the land of the greed and the home of the stupid. It’s enough to make a patriot cry.

    James is not interested in any viewpoints that conflict with his narrow image of the world. He is more comfortable sitting with the choir than in actually understanding something of the real world. His opinions are typical of the intolerant left who hold the mistaken idea that they only have the answers and everybody else is judged to be ignorant and non patriotic. He would make an outstanding fundamentalist preacher.
