Because the constitution doesnt prevent Ohio from regulating parts of interstate commerce; Texas can demand that its residents pay tax on things bought from a California company, for example, or prohibit its residents from buying certain goods from said company.
Those nasty fundamentalists and their pesky tenth amendment....
Incorrect, it is NOT exclusive. The fed has supremacy when it passes a law, but states CAN reach inter-state agreements about many things: liquor laws, metro finance agreements, etc.
Virginia has reached agreements with Maryland and DC regarding who pays for Metro costs, how the metro runs, who regulates it, etc-- thats not an exclusively federal issue.
As has been said, you can downshift on many automatics just fine. My civic for example has "D" (full auto), D3 (limit to 3 gears), 2 (force 2nd gear), and 1 (force 1st).
This is sort of a scripting issue, and Powershell has modules for everything under the sun-- including Amazon:
Not sure whether your instances themselves are running windows, but if so that would be even easier to integrate.
Because its true. Back in previous threads the most we could come up with is that its volatility was something like 100% in either direction in 6 months. Now we're at ~1000% volatility in 6 weeks, which is only "like currency" if you live in Zimbabwe.
It seems to me that that wonky pricing is BECAUSE insurance exists, and any legislation that further entrenches the insurance system is backwards.
Ideally we would get out of this system where you literally cannot afford common procedures like childbirth without insurance, not make it mandatory for everyone.
Im saying its irrelevant because youre the only one discussing the state of the Tennessee site. The thread is on the failings of healthcare.gov, not any other website, and the state (or State) of Tennessee has nothing to do with that: They arent a contractor, they arent the developer, they arent in a management role for it.
As I said, no, I wouldnt have, because I dont the government's job as "fixing the whole world".
The people of Tennessee, according to their own governor, could have had a state-run site that he believed was a good idea
Which still would have had no impact on healthcare.gov, which is why your entire rant is irrelevant. The existence or lack thereof of any number of state exchanges has no relevance to the failed launch of the federal exchange.
Not really, because it doesnt cost me a dime when companies go under. When the government makes bad decisions, Im on the hook. Thats why its worse.
And it the government hadn't bailed them out, leaving the economy even further in the shit than it is now,, you would have blamed that on the government too.
Not really, I would have seen the problem as self correcting. Risk-taking company goes under because it turns out they took too many risks.
Wait, no, Ive got it: Lets bail them out so they can do the same crap again 10 years from now!
Pretty sure I didnt say any of that, but good strawman. There are a lot of people who make poor health choices, and telling them that they no longer need to worry about the consequences sure isnt going to get them to make better choices.
You dont have to have a car to breathe, or live in the US. It also isnt the same thing: theres no parallel with car insurance of the threat that the government will now have a say in how you live (ie, being healthier).
Also, Im pretty sure you dont need a license to even drive, as long as its on your own private property; the personal mandate doesnt take that route, it just says "if you live in the US you must buy insurance".
Examples please, of where additional regulation or legislation has reduced costs and driven up efficiency.
