Hot Links: Stories we're watching today

Ha ha ha! President Bush is going to focus on energy concerns for his address tomorrow? Funny, coming from someone who's largely responsible for the Doomsday-like world we're living in! Allowing the oil companies to set our energy policies, anyone? What's the answer? Drill in more of our dwindling wildlife areas for another year or so worth of oil? Think if all the money wasted in Iraq went to research for alternative energy sources. What a joke this administration is!

are you kidding...that's one of the reasons I want to vote for Hillary. Bill had a blast and he had stuff to do, what will happen if he is sans stuff to do? That's going to be great TV!

I think making health insurance deductable would be great. I am fortunate to have excellent coverage at a very low price, thanks to the company my husband works for. However, I have friends who can't afford health insurance. They can't afford to go to the doctor. It is a serious matter that needs serious consideration.

I fail to understand how exactly Bush's health insurance deductible will encourage those not insured to buy a medical plan. Families that live on a weekly cash flow cannot afford health insurance or wait for the tax benefit. This plan will end up placing more money into the hands of those already insured while taking away from the hospitals. There has to be an alternative for insuring those not currently insured.

I think more Americans will have watched the Indianapolis Colts beat the New England Patriots last night than will watch President Bush's State of the Union Address.

Oh, the Bears did beat the Saints too.

I will be viewing the address but really don't expect anything new.

Both the state of California and Massachusetts are struggling with health insurance coverage for small-businesses and the population three times below the poverty line. Both states have rejected single-payers health insurance plan and are more likely to chose for universal health care insurance. Just proposing tax-deduction is just not enough. Not only should health facility officials in these states worry about health care costs, but also the quality of health care.
