Keep your doctor? Just another lie

January 8, 2014

As 2014 begins, many Americans will be confronted by one of President Barack Obama’s bigger lies — they will learn they cannot, in fact, stay with trusted health care professionals of their choice....

nutSocialist, Here you go dimwit, Bechtel, San Francisco, Calif, Fluor Corp., Irving, Texas, Kiewit Corp., Omaha, Neb. The Turner Corp., New York, N.Y. PCL Construction Enterprises Inc., Denver, Colo., Skanska USA, New York, N.Y., Foster Wheeler AG, Hampton, N.J., Tutor Perini Corp., Sylmar, Calif. Clark Group, Bethesda, Md. Balfour Beatty US, Dallas, Texas, The Shaw Group Inc., Baton Rouge, La., The Whiting-Turner Contracting Co., Baltimore, Md., CB&I, The Woodlands, Texas. There are 13 firms who could have done any of the work you claim that only Halliburton could handle. Now put up or*****up mouth. Name one project that only Halliburton could do. Since you cannot, I believe this conversation is over.

notSocialist, Isn't it a happy coincidence for you that President Obama is both Black and a Democrat? It is basically one stop hating for you, right? :)

notSocialist, Come on, you can do better than that. You made the claim that only Halliburton could handle the massive projects. Just back up that claim by naming one of those projects. All I am asking for is that you show me in at least one case that I am wrong. Here is your chance. Just name one of the 39.5 billion dollars worth of projects that no other company was big enough to do. Be a man, back up what you say.

notSocialist, You have made the claim that, "Halliburton got the job because they are the only company capable of such massive building projects." Yet when you are asked to name one, just one, project that was so massive no other company but Halliburton could have done it, you come up empty despite all your desperate searches on the internet. Just give it up Pal and stop posting your nonsense. All you are doing is continuing to show others what a fool you are. Go ahead and continue to drink the kool-aid, but do not advertise your stupidity for all to see.

Is Halliburton now working for Russia's President Putin?

Halliburton has won a $95 million contract from Russian state oil producer Gazprom Neft to test and complete 11 wells at its Badra oil field in eastern Iraq, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Gazprom said testing of the first well is scheduled to start in the third quarter of this year. “Production will commence once the final field development plan is completed in 2013,” the Russian firm said.

The field, which has estimated reserves of 100 million barrels of oil, is being developed by Gazprom (30%), Korea’s KOGAS (22.5%), Malaysia’s Petronas (15%), Turkey’s TPAO (7.5%), and Iraq (25%).

"Still can't come up with an answer, huh? What, google not working for you today?" What are you mouthing off about now? You cannot even name one project, dimwit. Another shining example of Halliburton at work poisoning our own troops. Who needs enemy fire when you have Halliburton. As I said before nutSocialist, 'Click your jackbooted heals together three times and have another glass of kool-aid.'

A federal magistrate in Oregon has ordered Kellogg Brown and Root (KBR a subsidiary of Halliburton) to pay $85 million to a dozen National Guard soldiers for illnesses suffered while guarding an oilfield water plant during the Iraq war.The soldiers said they suffer from respiratory ailments after exposure to sodium dichromate, and they fear that the hexavalent chromium that it contains could cause cancer. The chemical was added to water that was pumped underground to push oil to the surface at the site managed by KBR. The soldiers claimed the substance was loose in the compound and contaminated areas outside the building where it was added to the water. One soldier testified the chemical even coated his food. Another 21 soldiers included as plaintiffs in the original filing are waiting their turn in court as the case was initially too large to handle at one time. Each of the 12 soldiers was awarded $850,000 in non-economic damages and $6.25 million in punitive damages.

nutSocialist, I will make it easy for you. Name one project done in Iraq that was too big for anyone but Halliburton to do. If you are an honest man you will admit that that no such project exists.

nutSocialist, I would suggest you look at the Apollo program. At the time it was as big a project as you could get and yet hundreds of contractors were involved. The only time you have a need for a no bid contract is when you have bought the politicians involved.

"There are literally hundreds of companies that could have done the work that Halliburton did.

Then name some. If you can. " NO, I will not. You have wasted enough of my time. Look them up yourself. You look at this and say it was too big of a job for other companies. I have never heard anything more short sighted. In fact there were very many small jobs that added up to the $39.5 billion cost and the reason that Halliburton got all those no bid deals was because they had their man in the Whitehouse.

questioner,

I have sent my payment directly to Anthem Blue cross and they have sent me a new Insurance card. They still have not cashed the check though. It agravates me that they are dragging their feet in doing that. I have a doctors appointment on the 21st and I may have to cancel it until I see that Anthem has accepted my payment.

Folks who fall through the cracks due to this issue will have to wait for the next opportunities to enroll, which range from from the beginning of February to March or later this Spring, depending on where they live.

If you think you may be personally impacted, check your physical mailbox for instructions from your insurer on how to pay (yes, they are sending them by snail mail) and contact your insurance company.

TripleD, I know you signed up for health care, but did you pay for it?

The Guardian has found that thousands of applicants may unknowingly be without healthcare because of problems with the Obamacare payment system. Obamacare has a two-step sign up process -- applicants sign up through the government-run exchanges, but then have to connect with the insurance companies separately to pay. A lot of people aren't taking that second step. Insurers are finding they're ending up with a lot more applications than payments. If those insurers don't receive their payments, the people who spent all that time signing up won't be covered at all.

Just looking out for ya. Really.

"Please name any other American company large enough to handle the massive infrastructure project Iraq required. "

There are literally hundreds of companies that could have done the work that Halliburton did. That is the sole reason that none of it was open to competitive bids because Halliburton would have lost to them. First,*****down some more of that kool-aid. Now click your heals together three times and yell "Sieg heil! Sieg heil! Sieg heil mein Führer!" to Dick Cheney

Cheney's Halliburton Made $39.5 Billion on Iraq War. The company was given $39.5 billion in Iraq-related contracts over the past decade, with many of the deals given without any bidding from competing firms, such as a $568-million contract renewal in 2010 to provide housing, meals, water and bathroom services to soldiers, a deal that led to a Justice Department lawsuit over alleged kickbacks, as reported by Bloomberg.

"Halliburton defrauded American taxpayers of hundreds of millions of dollars in Iraq." "The truth is that right now we have precisely the regulatory system that the Bush-Cheney Administration wanted -- full of loopholes, full of cronies and lobbyists filling the very agencies they're supposed to be overseeing," she said, adding a bit later, "Right here, we have the poster child of Bush-Cheney crony capitalism. Halliburton (was) involved in this, and we haven't said (anything) about that. They after all were responsible for cementing the well. Here's Halliburton, after it defrauded the American taxpayer (of) hundreds of millions of dollars is involved again..."

I'm trying to imagine how these posts would go if TripleD was a republican atheist and Kozy was a Christian democrat. But it boggles my mind thinking that way--I can't even amuse myself by imagining it.

Maybe we need one of those marriage counseling sessions, where each person has to take the other person's point of view and then discuss things. In fact, maybe we could totally mix it up--I can think of a few people who I'd pay money to see switching roles and writing as they think someone they normally disagree with here would write.

Maybe everyone should post how they are going to pray for the poor atheist. Do you think that would help?

In any event, I heard that someone on this board said it could be that I was somehow affected by the overthrow of the Iranian government in 1953, with the help of Great Brittan and the U.S. I believe that was called the mordad or moridad coup. My mother was pregnant with me at that time. Of course we could not call that a birth defect. That might be libel.

Gods help. We could not possibly get by without it and his prayers. Such an egotistical fraud. He constantly uses his religion as a weapon. He could not even forgo a morning prayer at breakfast or at the very least do it silently. Does anyone really believe that he prays before every meal in a restaurant? I have never seen someone feel the need to constantly tell so many that he prays for them. I do not think even the Pope uses that line that much.
