Hi Mike. You say you read these posts so I am sending a couple of common sense ideas to save the US. Wouldn't it be cheaper and more efficient to set up a high risk pool for those with pre-existing conditions. The $650 Million ACA start up would be a great start..no need to hire 16,000 IRS agents or "facilitators" Dispense it through Social Security which is already in place and functioning. Extend the taxable base amount..make it unlimited..no deductions. Wealthy retirees do not receive a monthly SS pay out, but get a tax deduction of the amount they would have received. This leaves more $$ in the SS fund for those that need it. Most retirees need Medicare coverage vs. social security payments Also, the deductions should be reversed..we take out more for Social Security than for Medicare though the cost for medicare is higher. All workers are entitled to Medicare coverage, but many do not need the SS payout. Give them a deduction so they will at least receive something for their contributions. I still would like to see the push for a flat tax..too many loopholes and too many cheaters. Americans should have access to medical insurance BUT they still should have the right to decide if they want it or not!! If they choose NOT to take it, they are responsible for the payment of their health care. e.g. If one chooses to smoke..their choice, then it is our right to not pay for lung complications. It was their choice and their responsibility!! Schools should be teaching that with "rights" come
We watch you every week and love your show, but this week Fox News chose to have a football game on instead. Not happy
I would like the reporters on Fox (& others ha-ha) to know that and SAY that the health plans that are being canceled are NOT "crummy" or "cheap" or one's with NO coverage. My plan was a great plan with prescription coverage as well. I renewed my plan effective 10/01/13 and received my cancellation letter on 10/03/13. I'm incensed every time I hear the Democrats say these are bad plans with no coverage.
My first time watching your show all the way through. Our government and the people they choose to run the agencies should surprise me when they do the stupid ( I never used this word when I was a classroom teacher) things they do. Well, it doesn't surprise me. How can anyone think that housing for the deaf and their unique needs infringes on the hearings civil rights. Puleeze!!!!. There is abundant housing for the hearing. But we need more housing that is affordable for the disabled that need special things that will help them remain independent.
Great show, but had to record a later broadcast to see it all. I'm not sure why Fox Sports and football has invaded Fox News, but it was very irritating to have the overrun of the football game spill over and cut the first portion of the Huckabee show. Fox is always time-critical and computer controlled, but with a sports broadcast and its uncertain ending time they broadcast all of the game and join Huckabee "already in progress". I've seen this practice for years on ABC, NBC, etc. and it has always been irritating. Why is Fox News entering into this practice now? Grateful for the repeat broadcasts, because the opening portion of Huckabe needs to be seen!
