Re: “10 Charleston restaurant trends that need to end with 2016

Maybe instead of just complaining Phillip could have done a little research and promoted Taste of Black Charleston.

Re: “Death Cab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard stormed off stage last night at Volvo Car Stadium

I was at the concert last night and was very disappointed. What did they for an hour? Also the sound was horrible. You could barely hear him singing because the music especially the keyboards was so loud and distorted.

Re: “Mark Sanford is no legal scholar when it comes to the Affordable Care Act

I was referring to a healthy young person who doesn't go to the hospital. There is no incentive to sign up if they are going to pay for routine care because they won't meet the deductible. so then you are comparing the penalty to the yearly cost of the plan and they will choose the penalty. The system is basically reversed when it comes to insurance which is based on risk. ACA is based on bringing in a lot of money from healthy people to pay for sick people. If those healthy people don't buy in then the whole plan falls apart.

Re: “Mark Sanford is no legal scholar when it comes to the Affordable Care Act

A couple of points:

It's funny how ACA wasn't a tax until they needed it to be a tax for the supreme court to approve it and to delay parts of it.

As noted here by several people the cheap policies are the high deductible catastrophe policies. If you are a young healthy person why would you pay for a policy that you will be paying all your medical expenses anyway when you can just pay the penalty? And if you get sick you can't be denied for a pre-existing condition so you can get a policy then.

All I keep hearing is they need to pass a clean CR as if that is a solution. All it does it continue the wasteful spending and increasing debt that we have now. What happened to the government passing budgets?

Re: “Secession would turn South Carolina into a zombie apocalypse

I'm not saying it would be bad or good because I don't have enough information but I will say this. I will say that you have completely left out the other side of the equation. You listed all the money that comes back from the federal government but you ignored the money that goes to the federal government? We would not be sending that to the the feds anymore.
