What is your biggest question about Obamacare?

"Speaking Tuesday to the 2010 Legislative Conference for the National Association of Counties, Pelosi began the windup of her healthcare pitch by alluding to the controversies over the healthcare bill and the process by which it has reached its current state. Then, just after saying, "It's going to be very, very exciting," Pelosi gaffed, telling the local elected officials assembled that Congress "[has] to pass the bill so you can find out what's in it, away from the fog of controversy."

This is an excerpt from her speech. "...away from the fog of controversy" are the words left out of interpretation.

Buffalo63, The GOP wants the ACA be a campaign issue. There's enough propaganda out there to swing votes. the GOP is always concerned about votes. That's why they're having trouble now. Their districts have been gerrymandered, and the radical conservatives are winning the primaries. They are manipulating GOP out.

City delays action on $40 million bond issue for Rock Chalk Park

I'm suprised that there is so little reaction to the Planning Department's proposal to modify Horizon 2020 rather than develop a new comprehensive plan.

Saturday Column: As Obamacare kicks off, many questions remain

Mr. Simons, some of your facts are eromh see below.
"On Aug. 7, the Office of Personnel Management, which administers the FEHB Program, issued a proposed rule saying that the federal government could continue to make contributions toward the premiums of lawmakers and their staffs on the exchanges. The federal government has long made such premium contributions, as other employers do for their employees. OPM said the contribution couldn’t be more than what it is under the FEHB Program. That ruling, perhaps predictably, sparked new — and still bogus — claims from Republicans of Congress being “exempt” from the law." -fact Check .org.
