Chris has got my vote and I hope he wins so he can beat the socks off of Foster, who is a typicalRead More politician with self-interests. I wrote Foster about my husband losing his job due to Obamacare, and that I feel it should be scrapped and the government should keep their hands off of our health care. What did Foster do? He replied with a form letter with the link to sign up for Obamacare. Ughhh! Vote for Chris Balkema!!! He's a man with integrity, is hardworking and can help turn things around for the better! What's more, he cares about people and knows it is them he'll be working for...

Foster was fired once for voting for the disaster "Obamacare" and only got back in officeRead More through the Dems wild gerrymandering the district. He needs to be fired again! I completed my early voting and did my part to ensure Mr Balkema wins the general election.

Martha won't admit that middle class premiums are high so that most of that money can be used forRead More other peoples insurance. This is redistribution of middle class wealth. Countries that do this provide a poorer existence for all of the people.

I hope I did not offend anyone with my post. My family has been personally affected by the changesRead More and for as hard as we are working, and making cuts in our personal spending and trying to get ahead, this is the kind of scenario that makes it so frustrating. There are healthcare programs already in place that could be viable options if they were run properly. Now the entire healthcare system has been shaken up and seeing how many programs have been mismanaged and the blame gets shuffled around, how are we to assume that this is not going to follow that same path?

Ann Marie - whoever you are - thanks for putting that out there. Our family is far from 1%-ers.Read More Maybe 20%-ers in a good year, and we're feeling the change too. It's not as if we don't have compassion for people with sick kids (actually was in that boat), but at some point you work hard and sacrifice to try get ahead, and it's nearly impossible. The supporters of the current administration seem to think telling the OTHER guy to give until it hurts constitutes some kind of moral high ground.
Will Congressman Hultgren help his constituents who will be able to obtain coverage under the ACA? Or will he continue to cause confusion?

Non political event? These events are being paid for to promote this virus to the tune of $700Read More million. If you are unable to discern the affects already served and about to be released by this puppy, well sorry for your disability.

Death Panel. Go to Affordable Health Care Bill:Read More http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/D?c111:7:./temp/~c111a6e4fh: see section 3403. This committee is meant to reduce medicare costs and how do you think they will do that? Do you think that they will recommend more treatment for Alzheimer? I don't think so
