The difference is people voluntarily give data to these companies where as you are forced to give information to It would be the same as if the IRS was hacked.

Wow, a completely factually incorrect complaint about "Obamacare." Modded up as Insightful as well, how suprising.

There are absolutely no requirements to use any of the echanges in the ACA. The exchanges are provided as a convenience. You are perfectly free to get your healthcare through your employer if you want. Or, you can call up any private insurer on the planet directly and get insurance from them. The ACA only mandates that the insurance they offer meets some minimum standards.

Yet, oddly enough, I see very few environmentalists stepping forward to volunteer to commit suicide first. I guess they think THE REST OF US need to go; but somehow they're too goddamned important.

They can't step forward because they are made out of straw. They are really easy to burn though.

I was curious about what rules would be waived so actually read the article. This article says almost nothing. And the supposedly supporting link on 'waive the rules' doesn't go anywhere. About all I can tell is that they will let them do their Impact Assessment as they begin construction instead of ahead of time.

Seems like much ado about nothing unless anyone has some real info.

You get to sweating a bit, and I doubt it's good for your back in the long run, but its certainly doable

(I used to work in a freight terminal - we would load 2 or 3 trucks with 20-30 Kg packages over a 2 hour period.. and none of us were 'buff' by any stretch of the imagination).

You are either lying or you were violating Federal workers safety regulations.

Here's something that will deflate your entire argument: most conservatives don't claim to be open and inclusive - you set up that straw man and knocked the hell out of it.

Rand Paul, the conservative subject of this article is a man made from people parts.

Rand Paul: GOP must be more diverse, inclusive
'We have to show concern for those who aren't doing very well'

Yeah.. Think about what plastics are made from. We wouldn't want oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen, or (god forbid) CARBON getting into our food chain. I mean, that's the stuff life is made of. Wait, what are we talking about?

Yeah, nothing unsafe has ever been made from those elements. Hint: You only need two from your list to make cyanide.

If it's worth hacking on well, it's worth hacking on for money.
