    In the midst of their depression, with Bristol-Meyers-Squibb stock soaring on the explosion of Abilify sales, the DUmmies are comforting themselves with an old-fashioned remedy: the Bouncy.

    Watched a bagger have an epiphany yesterday

    Been seeing and listening to this guy for years at the restaurant where we both eat at.

    He hated everything about Democrats. And wasn't shy about loudly saying so either.

    Turns out he was on his wife's employee insurance and his wife had the premiums being deducted from her paycheck every week so he had decided not to pay for insurance where he worked at. He felt it was a waste of money.

    He went to pick up a prescription last week and the pharmacist informed him he didn't have any coverage.

    He ran home and called Blue Cross and they informed him that his wife's employer had not been paying the premiums for 4 months. He told them the money has been deducted from his wife's paycheck though. Blue Cross said that very well may be true but his wife's employers had not been submitting the premium payment to them which is what counts.

    This guy had been calling lawyer after lawyer and none of them would touch this.

    Now this guy has no insurance coverage, can't purchase coverage with his and his wife's preexisting conditions and he has $55,000 worth of unpaid hospital bills for he and his wife sitting at home and no money to pay them.

    He was asking out loud, "What do I do now?"

    That is when I spoke up. I said it kind of looks like your only option is Obama-Care.

    So the guy who hates Obama asked me where he can sign up.

    I personally don't know all the ins and outs for this stuff so I told him to call our Congressman's office and ask someone there about it.

    He thought about that for a minute and then said with a look on his face like he was eating lemons, "But our Congressman is Jesse Jackson Jr.", who I know this guy really hates.

    I said well, that is who I would call.

    He begrudgingly said "Yep, I am going to go home and call his office right now."

    I shook my head in agreement, wished him good luck, and paid my bill and left.

    I give it one and a half bongs.
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    IF this were true, the company would be in a bit of trouble for deducting premiums and not forwarding them to BC/BS.

    What a liar.

    If the story is true, that is. The wife's employer is at fault, and committed fraud using BCBS' name. He and his wife should sue them.

    I'm an ignoramus? At least I read the OP.

    He ran home and called Blue Cross and they informed him that his wife's employer had not been paying the premiums for 4 months.

    BC/BS has been around a lot longer than the imaginary company his wife works for. They wouldn't be around this long if they did what you suggest. If they had that reputation or the lawyer thought he could make a bunch of bucks off the rich BC/BS, they would take the case. huh no one wants to help him. You DUmmie.
