My family insurance plan through my work costs me a little more than $100 every two weeks, while I clear about $600. Just got $600 worth of doctor bills. Is the Medicaid expansion going to help me pay this bill, which just swallowed an entire paycheck? I hope so.
Here's a suggestion for the good doer liberals. Instead of raising minimum wage, why don't we cut all wages over $40,000 per year by 10 percent? It would lower the cost of living and help even the playing field for minimum wage earners.
For God's sake would someone please put a smooth jazz station in the Charleston area? Three classic rock stations and four hick radio stations are killing me. Help, please.
Say no to the levy coming up. Kanawha County wastes taxpayers' money and also it would make your taxes go up. So vote "No."
To the person crying about the people who say they want, need and have to have Obamacare, the same goes for you: You don't know what's in Obamacare yet, so why are you and your Republicans so dead set against it?
Anytime somebody says something about Marshall athletics negatively, it's always in the [paper]. Anytime they say something about West Virginia athletics, they never print it.
The Affordable Care Act was not voted in by a mandate by a majority of the people. It was voted in by the Democrats in Congress. When are you people going to start telling the truth about things? The majority of the people did not want Obamacare. That was the mandate of the people.
Can someone please explain to me why the doors at Capital High School are left open during the day? There are some crazy people out there. Did they not get the memo? They lock the front doors, but leave the side doors open. I don't understand this.
To the reader who said that it was Pelosi and Reid that failed to negotiate: for six months they have tried to negotiate with John Boehner and Congress, and 18 times they were told "No." ... It is the tea party that will not negotiate. Get your facts straight.
How dare Obama close the national park system?
Congressional Republicans are not using "bullying tactics." They are trying to get the radical president and congressional Democrats to do something about the crushing national debt, which is ready to surpass $17 trillion. They are doing nothing that hasn't already been done before by both parties.
What used to be "your land and my land" is now becoming "Obamaland." Wake up America's people before it is too late!
I love West Virginia's new offense. Have nine guys block and one guy throw as deep as he can to a guy that is triple-covered down the field and over his head. Way to go. What genius.
I would like to complain because every Saturday in the fall we cannot get any local news coverage until the wee hours of the morning or on Sunday. Channels 3, 8 and 13 are tied up with college football games. This is utterly ridiculous. That's why we have ESPN channels. Not everyone wants to watch football. Some of us want to watch local news.
Money well spent: Thank goodness West Virginia opted out of the contract to play FSU a couple of years ago. Had they played FSU and FSU beat Maryland 63-0, it would have been a national embarrassment for the Mountaineer fans.
