Health care reform passes House with Bishop's blessing

Dag you truly are insane. You actually believe this piece of crap will reduce the defecit. That kool aid you are drinking must be spiked with wacky juice" Nov 11, 09 11:03 PM

Bishop's burn pit legislation signed into law

Cap and trade, porkilus bill, health care reorm, TARP, voted against the troop surge (which worked). This guy is a bum and needs to be voted out however you can't fault him for wanting to do more for our troops. These guys are out there every day putting there butts on the line to defend our freedom. I think most Americans will agree we do not do enough" Nov 12, 09 7:01 AM

Health care reform passes House with Bishop's blessing

I am stiil waiting for someone to answer my questions. I would love to hear your rebuttals on each of my 6 questions. I believe they are all pretty good ones. The arguement is not over a single payer system (which we all know we arent getting). Its over the Bill designed by Pelosi, whats in it and what type of impact it will have on us." Nov 12, 09 1:14 PM

Its 1900 PAGES of beaucratic nonsense. Not one of us truly understand it all. It was written by a bunch of trial lawyers who have no real idea what type of impact it will have on our lives" Nov 12, 09 1:16 PM

This coming from the same guy who argued that the DrKimmelstein (head of DR for universal health care advocate group) study claiming 44,000 people die each year to lack of health care was legit. Stop getting your info from moveon.org" Nov 12, 09 1:19 PM

Once again you have displayed your intellegence. Can you answer the questions? " Nov 12, 09 1:22 PM

Great answers guys. You really proved your points. Can anyone with half a brain actually answere the questions posed?" Nov 12, 09 1:23 PM

Thanks Yearrounder you have just confirmed that you are a moron" Nov 12, 09 3:59 PM

Noah have you read the bill? Do you understand it? You speak as if you do. You are simply regurgitating bullet points from moveon.org. The public school argument is just plain old. The only way you can make that argument is if you socialize the entire industry. Doctors work for profit, Hospitals operate for profit (or at least try) and yes insurance companies operate for profit. If you want to create true social services within the medical field ALL for profit entities need to be employed by the tax payers and the GVT. Lets put docs on payroll just like police officers. While we are at it why stop there. How about the banking, finance and auto industry as well? They are all a bunch of crooks too. We can only trust our elected GVT officials (well maybe not the repubs) to do the right thing. " Nov 12, 09 4:10 PM

1. and 2. are not accusations they are FACTS. Many employers out here have seasonal workers that they can not afford to cover. They will now be forced to cover them or have to pay a fine (tax). This will lead to salaries being reduced, benefits being reduced and people losing there jobs.
3. If prexisting conditions need to be covered unconditionally the a person may be more opt to not take the coverage and just pay the fine. Why not. They can alway opt in when they get sick. Thus we are left with a riskier poll of insureds thus driving up the cost.
4. I don't know how to respond to that. Which study shows you tort reform will not lower costs. I have seen very low numbers at 2% but never a study that shows 0. Even if it is at the low number of 2%. That 2% represents a huge savings
5. Not sure where you got the 30% number from but it is irrelevant. Even if it operats at 30% lower costs they are LOSING 60 billion a year. Any for profit company would be out of business on those margins.
6. Stop and smell the flowers" Nov 12, 09 4:29 PM

KPJC, You cant listen to these guys. They don't listen to reason. Anyone who supports this bill is just ignorant. The democrats control the house, presidency and senate and this is the best they can do? A 2000 page pile of crap that no one understands and is loaded with so much pork for special interests. The working man and small business will bear the burden of this pig, our debt will continue to grow and we will be worse off. It amazes me that people like yearrounder can't even see the fact that their holy messiahs Obama and Pelosi have let them down on this one. It doesnt matter who is in office. Its politics as usual. Change my butt. " Nov 12, 09 7:53 PM

Bishop was a provost at southampton college. I guaratntee there is no way he could comprehend or interprete it. None of these bozos have any clue how this 2000 page monostrousity will affect our lives" Nov 12, 09 7:57 PM

Noah you have yet to answer any of my other questions but seem to want to pick apart one comment I made because it is the ONLY thing you got correct. It was a typo. Its not unfunded liabilities but underfunded liabilities. FYI The great expansion of medicare part D by Bush and the democrat controlled house already has 8 trillion in underfunded liabilities and now they want to eliminate the donut hole which will add to it. When they say underfunded they mean in the future. This means that current revenue can not meet expenses. The GVT will have to increase payroll taxes to pay for it. The US GVT is like one giant Ponzi scheme just waiting to blow up. With that said you should give yourself a hand. At least Im man enough to admit when I make a mistake unlike other people I know" Nov 12, 09 11:10 PM

KPJC I agree with your beliefs but I have to disagree with your view on Obummer. I DO feel many independents may have regretted voting for him but very few libs have. If Obummer told them to jump off a cliff they probably would. They hang on every word that he says as if it were gospel." Nov 13, 09 8:52 AM

I do feel that a real true lib does feel shafted by this reform bill and if they were a true lib and not an Obamer diciple they would know what I'm talking about. " Nov 13, 09 8:55 AM

You are never going to appease the far right or left. You can only hope to appease the middle. I think the problem has been Bush, Obamma, and polciticans such as Palin, Frank, Pelosi and Reid are all very polarizing figures" Nov 13, 09 8:58 AM

You don't even know what you are supporting. Certain insurance companies stand to make Billions of more money from this bill. AARP will be a huge benefactor. This isnt a bill for the people rather special interest groups. I would have more respect for you if you just came out and said I will not support anything that is not single payer universal health care. Again if you want to take the profit out of health care then don't forget doctors, medical equipment makers big pharma ect. all would need to be put on the GVT payroll. " Nov 13, 09 12:02 PM

Thats where you and I are different. Even though I Wholly disagree with your opinion I respect it. " Nov 13, 09 1:41 PM

Im still waiting for you to answer my questions. I have a feeling I will be waiting a long time" Nov 13, 09 1:43 PM

Thats where your wrong yearrounder. Even though I completely disagree and will do my best to make my point I still have respect for everyone (until proven otherwise) as a fellow American and human being. We all as individuals have different beliefs and values that make us who we are. Don't get me wrong I wouldnt want to hang out with you and I'm sure the feeling is mutual but as the libs say dissent is patriotic. Thats what makes this country great. I am not a hater I'm a lover LOL " Nov 13, 09 3:01 PM

Noah nice answers. Let me get this straight.. In your own words you are incapable for thinking for yourself so you can't answer questions 1-4. In regards to questions 5-6 you feel that medicare is profitable and not underfunded. I hope you at least realize that if medicare were a private company they would be out of business.
" Nov 13, 09 6:49 PM

What Noah says in the first paragraph is correct however you can not go to the car insurance carrier and get coverage after you have totaled your car and expect to be covered for it. With the current House bill on the table you can opt out of medical coverage via a fine and hop right on if you get sick. You will be left with a healthy pool of people opting out thus driving up costs. If the house chooses their present course the only way for it to even have a chance to work (odds @ .000001%) is to FORCE all people to take coverage with no personalized choice of the type of coverage. " Nov 14, 09 1:46 PM

Can't I respect someone and NOT be a pushover. You are a very unhappy person " Nov 14, 09 1:49 PM

Just curious. So you think this is going to be free. Paid for by someone else for you. Do you think medicare is free?" Nov 14, 09 4:30 PM

I would agree but its an iffy one. They do require individuals to buy car insurance. I am 100% against the health care reform bill but if it has any chance of working I believe it must be done" Nov 14, 09 4:37 PM

well yearrounder I would love for you to explain how my "facts" are not just that. If you were healthy and had a choice of paying 400 a month for health care or paying a 750$ fine knowing you could jump on at anytime and be covered which would you do." Nov 14, 09 4:40 PM

yea im indusrt mole on 27 east spreading fear. Are you paranoid? Did you take you medicine this morning" Nov 14, 09 6:54 PM

1. Medicare LOSES billions of tax payers dollars each year. If medicare were a private company they would be out of business.
2. If you would refund me all of the money I have paid into medicare and SS I would gladly refuse it. Problem is most people with money would do the same leaving people like you with nothing." Nov 14, 09 6:59 PM

amazing the way libs ignore the fact that this bill is loaded with corporate influence. Amazing that the libs don't see that their messiahs claim of hope and change is business as usual in washiington. " Nov 14, 09 10:40 PM

show you a line in the legislation give me a break. Yeah line 567 on page 1533 paragraph 34 item B. Give me a break. I as a employer of 33 Full time employees who I now provide CVG will be forced to provide for the 22 Part time that I dont or pay an 8% payroll tax. Thus I will be forced to lay people off or offer no salary increases thus screwing the working class. Further more for the regular individual make sure to go up and kiss the wealthy persons a___ for taking care of you. Are you really that pathetic to have to accept a hand out." Nov 14, 09 11:17 PM

in regards to you paying a lot out of your own pocket I agree it sucks but this bill will not help you. They need a bill to address tort reform, insurance reform and most importantly find ways to reduce the cost of care. I was recently tested for LYmes and the blood work cost 900. Until they focus on that rates will continue to rise" Nov 14, 09 11:24 PM

Expect the loss of 60 billion a year in medicare to rise substantially. AP just released an article claiming medicare fraud and waste alone increased three fold this year to 47 billion." Nov 15, 09 9:10 AM

a peson who believes in the free market and not more gvt control. gvt control over an industry (medicare) they cant even effectively manage themselves" Nov 15, 09 11:30 AM

The reason Health care is such a central issue with most people is because it is a debate about what the uture direction of the country should be. Do you want to expand entitlement plans, increase taxes, increase overall costs through higher taxes and expand GVT control (socialism) OR do you let doctors, insurance companies, lawyers, pharmaceticals, medical equipment makers, Ect Ect continue to make profits (capitalism). I agree we need reform.We need to decrease the cost of care and insure more people but This bill is not the answer " Nov 15, 09 11:37 AM

comparing medicare and the private industry is like comparing apples and oranges. I dont care what the operating expenses are for medicare they operate at a massive loss to the taxpayers each year. Any health carrier operating on those margins would be out of business. You infer that medicare is actually more cost inefficient that is simply not true" Nov 15, 09 4:43 PM

The deregulation that caused the housing collaspse occured during the Clinton years through the expansion of Fannie mae and freddie mac. Furthermore if Bishop told you the sky was purple would you believe him. Bishop has no qualifications whatsover to even make that staement. His prior experience was as a provost at Southampton college. He does and says what he is told by the democratic party" Nov 15, 09 4:48 PM

Excuse me but I don't think I said George Bush was without any fault. " Nov 15, 09 7:18 PM

youtube fannie and freddie mac hearings. Lots of your wholier than thou dems on tape lying through their teeth" Nov 15, 09 8:40 PM

Go to youtube and google Fannie Mae freddie mac hearings. Bush is responsible because he did not do enough to reverse the act created by Clinton that greatly attributed to the housing bubble burst. I don't know why it has to left vs right all the time. Many people on the hill did the wrong thing and should be held accountable for their actions. Any private comapny that took advantage of the policy THEY created has burned at the stake. How about burning the very people that created it in the first place. You are so far left that you actually believe that everything the left says is gospel. " Nov 16, 09 9:31 AM

But the Gvt will repay you with kindness? Proof? an article from the NY Times? Give me a break" Nov 16, 09 9:32 AM

I dont blame the GVT for everything. There are many negatives to capitalism that are facts of life. However you are promoting socialism. With corporate greed at least the GVT can and does hold you accountable." Nov 16, 09 10:44 AM

The last paragraph is spoken like a true Marxist. " Nov 16, 09 10:55 AM

Its true. Based on your comments you are so far out there that Noah or yearrounder might even consider you nuts. (well maybe not)" Nov 16, 09 10:59 AM

Never said it does a good job but it does hold you accountable. Enron, Bernie Madoff ect all wind up in prison. You are also contradicting yourself. You want single payer medical Coverage yet in your own words you bash the GVT as being inefficent and corrupt. You are a walking contradiction and I'm glad we can finally agree on something. You and peoplefirst should go out to dinner together" Nov 16, 09 11:28 AM

reminds me of the Abott and Costello whos on first skit. You say the GVT is owned by corporations. You say corporations are corrupt. You say health care will be better off being run by the gvt. You are right again! I think I MAY have hurt myself ." Nov 16, 09 6:43 PM

it is really scary how you think. Remove corporate money and influence from Washington. What planet are you from? You question my intelligence I question your sanity." Nov 16, 09 9:55 PM

Another genius with only one side of his brain working." Nov 16, 09 9:57 PM

Given this guys prior history and his actions you think he should sue for sexual discrmination! I would love to see YOU locked up in a room with the victims family" Nov 18, 09 8:39 AM

Health care reform passes House with Bishop's blessing

Noah, You truly ARE insane. You are asking this"stupid" local business owner an answer to a question that no collective group has been able to answer EVER. No Gvt in history has been able to create your perfect Utopia.

Your claim that the GVt provides better medical cvg at a better price than the private industry is just plain wrong.
Lets compare Medicare and throw out private run insurance for a sec. With Medicare you are forced to pay a 3% medicare payroll tax during your working years. Once you are eligible for medicare (if you live long enough) you will recieve coverage that has more holes in it than swiss cheese. You will then be forced to pay for Medicare part B (even though you have been paying for it thru payroll tax), Medicare part D and a medicare supplment plan (best one is planF). All if this will cost you approximately 4,000 per year. Not to mention that Medicare is losing billions each year ,has trillions in underfunded liabilities, and is due to go belly up. Sounds like a good deal to a lunatic " Nov 18, 09 10:16 AM

I did answer the question. How do you eliminate corporate influence and corruption in Washington. I do not know the answer. No one has been able to answer that question. Not in this conutry or any democrtatic country EVER. You are so smart though I'm sure you hava the solution to all of our woes. Probably some socialist idea that gives the GVT total control and power. We've seen how history treats those idealogies. Seeing you know so much you should consider running for President. You can have Yearrounder as VP and PeopleFirst as secretary of defense.
I do stand corrected Corporations do run medicare Part D. So the annual cost you have to pay to fill in the medicare gaps is @ 3500. Nonsense like 3%payroll tax, nonsense that medicare is due to collapse. nonsense that medicare loses billions of tax payer dollars each year. These things I am correct on and are not made up. They are facts. get off of moveon.org and google. By the way have you ever been wrong (in your own mind) on anything or do you consider yourself a super genius" Nov 18, 09 4:48 PM

Noah, After thinking about it you are correct Mediacre Part D is run by ins companies but that wasnt my point. My point was there is no drug coverage under medicare part A. Its just another gap that need to be filled and paid for" Nov 18, 09 5:29 PM

I knew you should run for President. Noah Way from southampton. I am positive that the country will be very open to your "suggestions".

Lets step away from fantasy land and address reality. I'm not sure about your 14-20% number but the fact is the medicare advantage plans are far more economical for lower income individuals. Medicare Advantage provides complete coverage with no need for Part D or supplement coverage thus saving seniors @4,000 annually. " Nov 18, 09 6:59 PM

Health care reform passes House with Bishop's blessing

Noah is very good at spouting his radical idealogies and also very good at ignoring cold hard facts.
1. US CITIZENS pay a 3% payroll tax for medicare.
2. Medicare loses billions each year
3. Medicare is due to go belly up within 20 years
4. Medicare has more coverage gaps in it than swiss cheese.
5. The most economical and complete coverage is medicare advantage which is run by insurance companies
6. To cover the holes in coverage on traditional medicare seniors must pay @4,000 per year. Factor in the 3% payroll tax while they were living....well you get the idea.
7. This bill will actually raise taxes and raise the cost of premiums
8. Does anyone actually belive this bill will reduce the defecit as was claimed when Medicare was orginally proposed
I'm sure someone will spout back profits are bad but the facts don't lie. Free market competetion is better that a giant Ponzi scheme which is the US GVT" Nov 20, 09 6:49 AM

Cant do basic math? Medicare loses billions of taxpayer dollars each year. If Medicare were a private run company they would have been out of business along time ago instead they continue operating at masive losses and to pile on more debt in the never ending Ponzi Scheme which is GVT. This bill is being disguised as health care reform when in reality it will increase premiums and save medicare through more taxes and cuts. You are the idiot. Where did you get the 70% number from moveon.org" Nov 20, 09 2:00 PM

This bill will cause premiums to rise so whats your point. Its not TRUE reform" Nov 20, 09 2:02 PM

East Hampton School District postpones $4.5 million bond vote

LOL. Dr Gualteri and the EH school board want to spend 4.5 million of our money in a recession with our taxes already going up. Laughable. Questions for Gualteri
1. When the school bid on the Whitmore property across from Long Lane and it failed to pass a vote did the taxpayers ever get the deposit back.
2. How much has the Sandpebble Builder lawsuit cost the taxpayers so far, what did they want to settle for and what are the chances we will lose the suit anyway.
3. Why did they chose to purchase a bus depot in the middle of the village and were there more cost effcient facilities availible.
4. Does the marketing brochure that the school put out include the cost of providing the drivers salaries, pensions and benefits
5. How much is the curent renovation costing us and is going to run over budget.
6. Why was the orginal vote intended to take place the day of a school play when parents would be present to vote.

Why not just put the bus station by town pond. Get this eye sore out of the village

Deliberations in Oddone trial resume Monday with testimony reread to jury

So publius when Oddone continued to choke reister while he was unconcious Mr Reister was still a threat? Don't forget people screamed at Oddone that he was killing him and peple tried to pull him off yet he continued his choke hold. I think we know which side you are on so please do not try and play neutral" Dec 14, 09 11:57 AM

Publius. I have been folowing the story from the date of Mr Reisters death and I have never hidden the fact that I believe Oddone must be held accountable for his actions. I am not family. Your claim that you are taking a "neutral" position is laughable" Dec 14, 09 2:25 PM

What planet is this guy from. He has voted for cap and tax, health care reform, porkulus, increasing the debt cap and now he wants to give various tax breaks to people on Long Island.
