Health care reform passes House with Bishop's blessing

Pelosi/Obummer healthcare bill is simply a redistribution of wealth. While the wealthy will feel some pinch it will be the hard working middle income people and elderly who will be devastated. The poor will receive all the subsidies, while those who are raising a family on diminishing wages will mandated to buy insurance without any subsidy and be subject to increased taxes.
It will force business to lay off or hire off the books. We all know who gets hired off the books.
Anybody on this board who supports gov't healthcare take a good look into the waste and sub par service administered by our Medicaid system. Legitimate insurers will suffer while crooked providers will choke the system.
Be very careful to support this legislation.
There should be healthcare for everyone but not by the US Government.
TIM BISHOP MUST GO -- Show him what a nay vote is come the end of his term." Nov 11, 09 7:05 PM

Bye the way NOAH WAY, in your math i did not see a cost for the massive fraud and abuse in Medicare/Medicaid. I don't think there is a difinitive number but estimates are between 22 and 40 percent. If I can add, it is higher than your made up Number of 30 percent for insurance profits.

And if you think that you will not be denied medical care by the government, please speak to the administrators at some of our local healthcare providers, who accept medicare and medicaid.

I"d rather see insurance premiums paid to executive's than to criminals beating the system. You hit it on the head yearrounder- you should be free to choose not mandated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
" Nov 11, 09 7:36 PM

"Thank You" to the author for informing the constituents of Tim Bishop that he voted for this socialist healthcare bill. When he gets voted out it won't be a surprise." Nov 12, 09 3:24 PM

Noah Way did any idiot on this board read the bill, not even the whimp who voted for it-Bishop. How long did it take you to think up the crap about police and schools, you are confusing basic freedoms with basic gov't servicers. Should the Government feed us too or wipe our A____?" Nov 12, 09 6:17 PM

Who is screeming!! i didn't see a response from you about having the freedom to choose as you described. See the trouble with you libs is that you can never face reality. " Nov 13, 09 8:15 AM

NOAH WAY--- Where is your self esteem? Do you really need the government to take care of you. I see since you cannot make an valid point you resort to name calling, very childish. Grow up and take care of yourself." Nov 13, 09 8:18 AM

Razza, you said it, these libs are inwardly regretting voting for Obummer and cannot deal with it. They want every bill presented to congress to pass in hopes that one may work to save face." Nov 13, 09 8:21 AM

You are coerrect razza Independents are the truly shafted ones." Nov 13, 09 9:22 AM

Ok NOAH WAY, my first reply was a reaction. Lets let the readers determine the idiot on this board. I said basic gov't services not freedoms.
First off public schools, police fireman are funded by taxpayers on an equal basis. If neighbors homes are worth the same value weather one makes ten million or fifty thousand the property tax is the same. similiar for sales tax. Both of which fund local services.

This bill is written to tax the have's(hard working) to support the have nots(mostly lazy obama supporters). So i hope you can comprehend that the more successful supporting the less successful defines socialism." Nov 13, 09 9:36 AM

Noah Way your view on corporate profits is off base. If you don't want any corporate entity to make money than. Don't buy food(farmers may profit). Don't get a haircut, don't buy shoes, don't fly, don't got out to eat. Maybe the gov't should just take over everything because people may make money.
Even with corporate profits and CEO salaries private industry is more efficient than gov't run operations." Nov 15, 09 12:18 PM

Supreme Court lifts injunction on use of Aldrich Park

Bring the piping plovers to the park then maybe ICE will take notice. " Nov 24, 09 8:06 PM

ICE may not go after the undocumented workers, but they would surely investigate the employers paying unreported wages and not paying thier share of employment taxes. " Nov 24, 09 8:26 PM

The only answer to undocumented workers-- is to document them--- This way we know they are here, they pay their fair share of taxes and employers pay their fair share of payroll taxes. Don' t give them SS#'s but give them working papers renewable every 5 years. Make these people pay their way. If they are needed then bring them into the system." Nov 25, 09 4:57 PM

Montauk fishermen cited for violations

The law is the law even if it is flawed. The problem here is the DEC. As INS states, NYS is unfair to its residents regarding fishing regs. If you have ever dealt with the DEC you will understand it is run by overzealous incompetents. The State budget can be saved by dumping this department. " Dec 2, 09 8:19 AM

Bishop girding for fall fight

Despite what others think, Scot Brown was definitely a vote against the Obummer, Pelosi, Reed agenda. Yes, Obummer was voted in by the majority, but the common sense portion has woken up. A self serving, egotistical, socialist agenda is not what the American people were promised or want. If Tim Bishop keeps rubber stamping the policies of this incompetent crew, then he has got to go.

Bishop will vote yes on health care reform bill

Taxpayers earning over $250,000 will pay an added tax on unearned income and capital gains in addition to increases due to Bush tax cuts expiring. These type of taxpayers are the engine of the East End ecnomy. Put an added burded on these people and you'll see housing values drop, all services related to housing upkeep drop as well entertainment, while umemployment will skyrocket. Out of work people will not be able to afford healthcare and therefore be subsidized. TAXES _TAXES TAXES
This bill is an insurance reform not healthcare cost reform.
" Mar 19, 10 6:46 PM

Could any of you supporters oft this bill please post how this bill will actually cut health care costs. (No pre-existing conditions, children up to 26 on family plans, no lifetime cap etc) More costs for the insurance company to raise rates.
Shouln't the cost containment start with the vendor charging for the services. The insurance companies just pay for the medical service and charge premims based on billing rates.
Please, all healthcare supportes please explain this.

When someone has fallen down and cannot get up you do not keep him there and bring him food, You help him up and make sure he is able to stand by himself. NO THATS CARING FOR PEOPLE!!!! " Mar 22, 10 8:09 AM

bmr5series-- Well now you do not have a choice, you will be mandated to buy insurance weather YOU deem you can afford it or not. You are probably making more than the income allowed for credits. So how are you better off.
And to boot, premums are going to rise because of this reform, so good luck.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Change you can get sick to your stomach on!!!!!!!

@Turkey Bridge---its ok that you voted for Obama, but deep down you are realizing you made a big mistake and for justification for not feeling foolish you are defending this outrageous bill and process. You are not alone in your feelings sicne OBUMMER won by majority. So the next election, most of these voters will vote against him but never admit it. ----------------------------------
P.S. --none of you supposed obama supporters ever explained how this bill reduces insurance premiums when more regulations are placed on insurers.

President signs historic health care legislation into law with Bishop's support

New York Medicaid is bankrupting the state and now this. Bishop is a clown and has not even listened to his base. BYE BYE BOZO!!!" Mar 23, 10 6:32 PM

Well for those of you who think they cannot affored health insurance now, check this out. Please, dont not believe me but look it up. in 2014 you will be mandated to buy health insurance. Unless you are below the poverty level your cost will be approx $5,900 for individuals and $11,000 for families after credits. Also check around now, you may find the costs are the same.
I think most of you supporters of this bill dont really know what you are going to get.

Health care reform is needed, it has to cut the overall cost of healthcare to make it affordable. Not distribute wealth to cover uninsured.
