    One guy thought he might have it, went to the doctor, turns out it was just the flu, and got saddled with a huge bill.

    Because, you know, nothing encourages people to report they might have a disease like giving them a huge bill for it.

    There should be a law, you know, that says "there's a maximum out of pocket your insurance is allowed to charge you". Man, ACAn't think of a name for that.

    No-one is above the law.

    That maximum remains several thousand dollars too large.

    Perhaps. It's still better than having no cap at all.

    Oh, and better than being talked out of having insurance by the man who claims this is under control.

    Especially since those most at risk are the elderly and ill. Plus, you know, the people who don't have insurance because they don't need it.
    So their own base.

    Probably why they want them in Commiefornia, on the Left Coast (heavy sarcasm), so their own people don't get sick and....die. Especially in an election year.

    I have to imagine hundreds of people, at the very least, will just skip going to the doctor/ER because they can't afford it. We're gonna end up having thousands more infected simply because of our healthcare system.

    I don't think we'll see that. That's a bad line to cross, and one that could be prevented by just holding things steady until some positive earnings come in.

    This is going to be a fucking disaster for the average person since healthcare is not something everyone deserves i guess.

    Since Pence is in charge of this horrific ailment he would use the compassion of his faith in making sure those whom need to get treated would get treated oh wait we have that response right here.

    Just think full employment they say over and over but what is the point if we end up with situations like this ( i know its in California but that is not an excusable reason in my mind it could be in Alabama and i would want better for my fellow American ). Wages have not kept pace with inflation in housing costs which is a huge problem that no one is attempting to fix.

    I try to only post about layoffs when i find that they are important metrics outside of the normal sorrow i feel for the recently unemployed. I keep going on about real impacts in the overall economy and vacation expenditures is a top one.

    We have tried to tell that to the Trump supporters on this forum, and that over half of the illegals here came by plane, but they don't listen to us. They just want to keep the brown people from coming.

    This was the friendliest title I could find.
    President disagrees with official CDC warning in rambling coronavirus conference as he puts Pence in charge
    Donald Trump has downplayed the possibility of a widespread outbreak of the coronavirus inside the United States, calling the risk "low" a day and appearing to disagree with his top health officials who have said it is a matter of when, not if, the country sees serious illnesses.

    "No, I dont think it's inevitable. It probably will, It possibly will," he said. "This will end. ... Nothing's inevitable."

    He said he was putting vice president Mike Pence in charge of overseeing efforts to protect Americans from the deadly virus, which has killed thousands of people – particularly in China – although there have been no fatalities in the US.
    I'm sure you guys have probably already seen his mess of a speech, tbf.



    How about this?
    Trump and his entourage fail to eat anything from special vegetarian menu prepared for them on India trip
    Titles explains itself pretty well, but this is my favourite part;
    Thankfully for Mr Trump, later during his visit he stayed at a luxury hotel in New Delhi, where the presidential suite had been amply stocked with Diet Coke and cherry vanilla ice cream in advance of his arrival.
    Shows how easy it is to please a child.

    Bloody lost half of my return in a week, between trump fucking things up with trade wars and this virus I kind of think that my return would have been at least double of what it is now.

    People like Trump don't understand that the world is connected even more now then 10 years ago.

    My expertise in the stock market is not that hot, but, it felt to me yesterday we hit the floor -- splatting instead of bouncing -- which should halt the downwards momentum. I don't see why futures are that far down. I mean, it's not like we got some really bad news, I mean, something truly horr-
