I Feel Good, Part 3

Look at just one of the quality candidates who are right now standing up to run for Congress next year.

Randy Bryce is a Wisconsin ironworker who's challenging House Speaker Paul Ryan. This is his campaign announcement video:

Some Democrats have complained that Jon Ossoff (of George-6 losing fame) was not sufficiently of the 6th district. They won't be saying that about Randy Bryce.

And maybe Paul Ryan is as unbeatable as Karen Handel proved to be. I don't care. Maybe Bryce's prior unsuccessful attempts to win office will also sink him this time. I don't care. I'm proud of the man who stands up for workers against what the Republicans are hatching at this very hour to deny health insurance to millions.

I'm proud of the man who made that video.

Republicans are going to "deny health insurance to millions"???

Really? Are they going to make it illegal to buy insurance?

Probably you mean that they are going to deny forcing others to pay for your insurance?

Just wondering, JW. What makes you believe I should pay for your insurance?

Don't you know how insurance works, Anonymous? When you pay for auto insurance or homeowner's insurance or yes, health insurance, you're paying other people's claims. That's how insurance works. We all pool the money so that everyone benefits. I hate to break it to you, but you're ALREADY paying for other people's insurance!

Anonymous said... seem to be confusing paying for claims with paying for insurance. Want to try again?

I buy my homeowners or auto insurance as a way to share my risks with a larger pool of similarly situated people. I do not buy their insurance for them.

Try to find an adult to explain it to you.

All right then. If you live in North Carolina, your taxes help to pay for teacher's and state employees' insurance, NOT their claims. If you live in a city or town, your taxes pay for health insurance for town ( or county) employees. Your taxes pay for insurance for police chiefs and sheriffs and congress critters. Your taxes pay for health care for active military and veterans. So guess what - you are paying for other people's insurance already.

Good Lord! Are you seriously suggesting that, because health insurance is provided as an employee benefit to state employees that we should therefore provide it to others as well?

Oh My God!

Did I say that? No, I merely pointed out that you are already paying for health insurance through your taxes. Also, if you are working and paying Medicare taxes, you are already paying for health insurance for senior citizens. I believe that JW is a retired state employee, so if you live in NC you are already paying for his health insurance too!
