Reply to: Blue Cross, Blue Shield Getting Richer, Like Corporate Insurers
That is a false statement. If BCBSA "negotiated" the provider rate, they have agreed upon a payment for services rendered to the patient (you,). The provider "writes-off" any remaining balance. Your response was not an example of what that. The rest of your comment devolved into an issue you should be blaming on your provider. Being screwed by medical bills sucks.

Reply to: 5 Things to Know about Billionaire Betsy DeVos, Trump Education Choice
I completely agree with Jason. Education is constantly evolving, but that evolution should include parents. Allowing the government to over regulate, as they are now doing with the plethora of standardized tests our poor children receive. I honestly believe to bring American schools up from the bottom rankings we need to individulize our childrens education. Change the way the school day is organized, in Sweden the children go outdoors every hour. They have virtually no ADHD in their country. They also have only a max of 20 children per classroom and every room has an aid! This is some legislation we should strive for, lower classroom size! Not more exhaustive testing. We are wearing down our teachers and our children. Lets flip the script and support them! That is how we make the American educational system #1!
Reply to: Are Seniors Paying Attention to Paul Ryan's Medicare Plan?
Many seniors I see at curves are completely unaware of what the republican congress wants to do to Medicare. They don't realize that if Medicare is privatized we will also lose our supplement to Medicare. We need to stand up to McConnell and Ryan and strongly refuse to accept this. They want to pay for a wall we don't need, with money saved by us not having healthcare. Wasting billions on a wall, is just one more foolish thing Trump wants to do.
