Senate launches website for public input on ObamaCare

by John Kennedy | December 10th, 2012

After resisting the federal health care overhaul for months, Florida’s ruling Republicans are reluctantly warming to the idea that it is not going to be repealed.

Senate President Don Gaetz said Monday that his chamber has established a website for Floridians to track legislative action on the Affordable Care Act and to offer input. The site is:  http://www.flsenate.gov/topics/ppaca.

“The new portion of the Senate website was created to serve as a centralized location for interested parties to watch meetings, read bills and share their viewpoints with the committee,” said Gaetz, R-Niceville, who announced the website’s debut along with Sen. Joe Negron, R-Stuart, chairman of a Senate select committee working on the state’s implementation of the ACA.

The first meeting of the select committee drew a host of tea party protesters, who urged that the Legislature continue to resist the federal law — insisting that it’s unconstitutional. Gaetz and Negron dismissed the criticism.

Among the initial tasks facing lawmakers is how to create required health exchanges, the online marketplaces where Floridians would obtain health insurance once the program is in place in 2014, and whether to expand state Medicaid coverage.

    I have no idea about this so-called “obamacare” but my business is “input” when I bought an anal stimulator in the hopes that I could finally stimulate my anus somewhere public without being embarrassed about the mess and noise. Long story short, this anal stimulator worked great at first.. that is, until the 4th day when I went to a concert with my partner. Halfway through I decided to use the restroom because I felt that it was nearing that time. After a 10 minute trek I wound up in a stall and took my anal stimulator out of its sheath. 1,2,3 and it was in my anus doing its job however, I didn’t feel anything. Now, I have a particularly weak grasp when it comes to anal proclivity.. so, I must say that evacuating my bowels was not exactly easy. I ended up pushing the stimulator too far into my anus to the point where I had actually lost it for several minutes. After panicking profusely, it promptly popped up and I put it straight back into my pocket as I didn’t want to face this wild contraption again. I ended up leaving later that night, without having evacutated my intestines. Needless to say, the next day I wound up in the doctor’s office suffering from an impacted bowel. I tried to return this unit but was denied by the company. I must say that I will not be using this product again.

    WHO CARES? No one will read it or actually respond to it unless it meets their socialist liberal agenda.
