    I would also love to add when you do not actually have an insurance policy otherwise you do not take part in any group insurance, you may well take advantage of seeking aid from a health insurance professional. Self-employed or those with medical conditions commonly seek the help of any health insurance specialist. Thanks for your writing.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Thank you!

    For ages Hannity has been little more than a loudmouthed "shanty Irish know-nothing", as my grandmother called them, mincing no words. He has done all he could to obstruct President Obama and preach the ultra-rightwing doctrine. Well, I think he has overstepped himself. His defense of New York police in the face of incontrovertible evidence of their murder of a helpless black man is utterly preposterous. It is my hope that in pursuing his nonsensical agenda on this, Hannity has finally done himself in. Even Robespierre and Rasputin were caught out at last, and I hope the wretch Hannity is next.

    Wow... For an 'interviewer', Folkenflik spends a lot of his question time asking why Sean Hannity shouldnt have full rights to distort and lie as his 'point of view'... Just as valid as the thruth, isnt it?

    Reminds me of good old Howard Kurtz before he became a full-fledge Neo-Murdochian by molifying all kinds of unresponsible Fox 'news' reporting such as their senior religion correspondant fire-bombing scholar Aslan for having the gall to write a book on Jesus...

    Fox news... fair and ballanced... Roger Ailes made a funny with that one

    Good lord Folkenflik. What's with all the weasel words? "Somewhat misinformed" – the guy didn't have his facts right. He said he would have to keep his whopping 4 employees PT b/c of the ACA, which is 100% wrong. He can make them PT or FT - he doesn't have to give them health insurance either way.

      A really disappointing interview by someone who is a professional journalist who makes a living writing about other journalists. Maybe he is just not used to the format of a live interview and got flustered. Is that possible? He is mainly a print journalist, isn't he?

    Funny that very few people are able to even get into the ACA website but this Democrat Operative did so with ease ? I tried and you cannot obtain a quote without entering your personal information.

    I read the article in Salon. This CNN "guest host" must not have read it at all. These people had not even tried to find out what they could get from the ACA. I don't know if they should be called liars or not, but Hannity certainly should. And Mr. Folkenflik should be ashamed of such an unprofessional interview. Please don't invite him back until he has grown up a little.

    CNN and the news media elite have enabled Hannity and others to lie because their reporters are communicating like entertainers instead teachers.
    Because they are constantly writing about today's most important facts, reporters are constantly distracting voters from remembering yesterday's most important facts. This is why surveys by the PEW Institute have shown repeatedly that most voters don't understand the Affordable Care Act. Also known as "Obamacare." The standard journalism practice of randomly writing stories about the program has not produced an adequately educated electorate. But reporters are not interested in communicating like teachers because they think that their job is too important to waste any time on publishing an annual one week review of the year's most important facts. Reporters don't care that this annual remedial education course could be republished as an ebook or print on demand paperback book so voters could buy an annual photographic memory. Reporters don't care that their hard work is usually ineffective because the information is forgotten as white noise. Reporters only care about having fun by writing about today's most important facts. That is what really satisfies their ego.

    Relaible Sources host continually asserts Fox news "right" to misrepresent Obamacare. Is he defending them or just intimidated? When will see CNN call such things as they are: gross indecent lies and propaganda.
