  1. So much better looking that new hairstyle. She looks really nice 👍

  2. There is no point in my enrolling. The least expensive plan constitutes 79% of my current gross income. My rent already constitutes 76% of my gross income. What do they expect me to pay with? When I had healthcare, back before Obamacare was a thing, I paid less than 5% of my net income for it and it was the best plan I ever had. Briefly, at the beginning of this year I was paying 11% of my net income for a crappy bronze plan. l lost that with my job in March. Cobra was 125% of my gross income. Not sure why the government thinks people can pay more than their total income for healthcare. This mess exists because politicians don't have a realistic picture of what low income Americans are able to pay for basic needs or what those basic needs cost.

  3. WARNING to ESCAPE Babylon's Judgement on Revelation 17-18 NIV

    BEWARE of the teachers of the law. They like to walk around with flowing robes and love to be greeted with respect in the markeplaces, and have the most important seats in the synagogue, and the places of honor at banquets. They devour widows'houses and for a show make lengthy prayers. These men will be punished most severely.
    So that you will not share with her sins, and you will not receive any of her plagues, because her sins are piled up to Heaven and God has remembered her crimes.

    As a thief is disgraced when he is caught,
        so the people of Israel are disgraced—
    they, their kings and their officials,
        their priests and their prophets.
    They say to wood, ‘You are my father,’
        and to stone, ‘You gave me birth.’
    They have turned their backs to me
        and not their faces;
    yet when they are in trouble, they say,
        ‘Come and save us!’
    Where then are the gods you made for yourselves?
        Let them come if they can save you
        when you are in trouble!
    For you, Judah, have as many gods
        as you have towns.

    Why do you bring charges against me?
        You have all rebelled against me,”
    declares the Lord.
    In vain I punished your people;
        they did not respond to correction.

    If you, Israel, will return,
        then return to me,”
    declares the Lord.
    If you put your detestable idols out of my sight
        and no longer go astray,
    and if in a truthful, just and righteous way
        you swear, ‘As surely as the Lord lives,’
    then the nations will invoke blessings by him
        and in him they will boast.

    This is what the Lord says to the people of Judah and to Jerusalem:

    Break up your unplowed ground
        and do not sow among thorns.
    Circumcise yourselves to the Lord,
        circumcise your hearts,
        you people of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem,
    or my wrath will flare up and burn like fire
        because of the evil you have done—
        burn with no one to quench it.

  4. If People Don't Rebel Against Tyranny NOW There Will Literally Be No Tomorrow

  5. We already know the government doesn't care about the american people.

  6. คุณงามความดีทุกคนสร้างขึ้นได้

  7. Govt hates the people. They show us not to care. Only worry about yourself. The rest is fake news…all of it. Principles out the way of critical thinking….

  8. People must keep your benefits yourself because of advocacy can allow to put in my account in my costumer service for traveling this is when Dow Jones making our payment goes higher or lower no one can get that expensive money 💴 in the bank 🏦

  9. Vote 💙💙💙 Georgia 🇺🇸

  10. Over 300,000 dead. Millions are homeless. No Covid relief package for the people. BLAME MITCH AND THE SENATE!

  11. Does any of this make sense? It's like choosing a drug plan. Will someone please give me a crystal ball so I can see what drugs I might need next year. Health care is not at the top of my "must haves"! If I'm sick or hit by a bus I believe we should be able to see and be treated by a Dr. in a hospital and Damm the cost. Health care is a right !

  12. This is why Georgia has to vote out the Republicans

  13. It is not affordable in states that did not expand Medicaid.

  14. I'm for giving socialized medicine a try for once. But about the ACA:
    We never said it was perfect; that's why even we say to improve it.
