I was actually referring to YOUR post from the Obamacare thread where YOU responded to my post and others who have been getting screwed by the ACA for the last 4 years.

You called us snowflakes for complaining about the same issues people on PEIA now face. You also seem to think that we just made "bad decisions". I asked you then to enlighten as to what decisions we could make to alleviate these problems we face from insurance that we never wanted to start with.

I mean, you've made it clear that people who aren't gifted with your ability to have awesome healthcare are in that position because of their own doing. Why aren't you including WV teachers in the mix?

Well, the monthly premium for an individual on PEIA is increasing to right around $147 which comes to $1764.00 a year. That's just a tad under 4.00% of their annual income. My monthly premium is $1203 dollars or $14,436. That number is 6.56% of my annual income.

I'm not saying teachers shouldn't make more money but, their premiums are inline with everyone else's.

That is anecdotal, don't you think? You cannot take two examples and say that they are in-line with the rest of the nation.
How about premiums of 14% of ones income, like mine. And trust me I don't have a Cadillac plan, mine doesn't even cover eye or dental.


No, I believe the perspective is relevant and important. Again, I believe teachers are underpaid but I have little sympathy for them when it comes to insurance. Especially when their plan costs 1/3 of mine and has better coverage.


Stop whining about your insurance, showflake.


Nope. And just like the teachers, I will continue to do so until it is fixed.

Okay - so we disagree. Now tell me where in Parkersburg do you work making $220K per year.


It's total household income. Mine and my wife's. That is what our insurance is based on, just like PEIA.

I left WV in the 90s because PEIA was horrible even back then. They refused to pay bills on medical expenses incurred by their members for simple doctor visits causing many of us issues with our medical providers. The theory was that they wanted to wait until after the close of the fiscal year to make things look better on paper, but who knows. Still, horrible management.

This is nothing new and it has nothing to do with the ACA. I teach in the DC area and things are fine with my health care because (and I can't stress this enough)...it is competently managed.

My yearly deduction is less than 1200 (reasonable considering the salary teachers make in this area - in line with what a school administrator makes in WV) and my healthcare is top notch!, providing me a wide network with open borders, good dental, and good optical.

PEIA IS the main reason I left the state.


Shouldn't you be telling these snowflakes that they just made bad decisions and to stop with the sob stories?

Looks like these snowflake WV teachers made some bad decisions. What a sob story they've come up with.

She helped her cause exactly how she intended, free publicity. Sh's running for office the year, there's no way she could have afforded the exposure she received from that stunt.

Happy to be educated on the subject. Please explain what is grossly misleading?



Jim pretty much summed it up. The article you shared along with several other I have read leads one to believe that operators only need to secure a few leases then they can do what ever they want and that is not the case.

I have personally been involved in 3 instances where a family member has disappeared without a trace. The remaining family members have leased their interests but, WV requires 100% of the interests to be leased before a well can be drilled. There are legal measures that can be taken but that can be quite costly and can take time. This bill puts us on par with Ohio and Pennsylvania when it comes to development.

The other road blocks are people whose mineral interests are currently held by an older lease. Those leases require modification to allow for pooling and unitization. Typically people are paid between $500-$1000 per acre to sign a modification which allows the operator to drill new wells which pay much better in terms of royalty. However, some of these people insist they should be offered the same terms as people signing new leases and refuse to sign modifications unless those terms are met. In some cases we may have everyone else's interests modified and this person is stopping everyone from proceding. These are a bigger issue in my opinion.

WV could go a step farther and implement some sort of dormant mineral statute which could help with unlocatable mineral owners.

So, a nearly 300% increase in premiums BECAUSE of the ACA is a sob story?

What's your cutoff point on increases that they become legitimate complaints?

What other decisions Google I have made? I am choosing from the only plans available to me BECAUSE of the ACA.

December 2017 premium $918
January 2018 premium $1204

And the media is now trying to tell me that Trump is going to cause my insurance premiums to skyrocket. I guess they don't consider a 300% increase in 4 years skyrocketing.

I looked at some ISU team statistics and have watched them play a bit and came up with the following:

This ISU team appears to be built with the KState/Snyder blueprint in mind. They play excellent defense, with a lot of seniors and juniors. Their LB's and DB's tackle well and they get a few sacks with their LB's and DL. Their LB's Lanning, Spears and Harvey are very good. They bring some pressure with Lanning and Harvey and Lanning is especially disruptive in the backfield.

They have 3 DB's with at least 2 interceptions each (10 total for the team) and as a team are holding opponents to 18.8 points per game (2nd behind only TCU), as opposed to WVU's 31.6 PPG allowed (7th). Their rushing D holds teams to 126.9 yds per game (4th in the conference) but their passing D is 2nd in the league allowing only 220.6 YPG.

Overall this is a very experienced, fundamentally sound defense that is better at stopping the pass than the run, but is near the top of the league in both. They are the least penalized team in the league with under 4 flags a game for an average of 36.4 yds a game, whereas WVU gets over 6 a game for 66 plus yards.

Offensively, they average 32.4 PPG (6th) as opposed to our 3rd best 42.8 PPG and they rely heavily on their duel purpose, sophomore RB, Montgomery, who averages almost 20 carries a game, but only 89.5 yds at 4.6 per carry, while averaging almost 26 receiving yards per game out of the backfield. ISU wants Montgomery to touch the ball about 25 times a game. The ISU rushing offense is last in the B12 averaging 112.9 YPG on the ground, meaning that their other RB's and the QB combined pick up only 23.4 more yards per game than Montgomery.

Lazard is their only WR on the radar statistically, (he finally graduates after this year) averaging just shy of 5 catches per game and almost 60 YPG with 5 TD's. He is their possession WR at 12 yards per catch. ISU's other 183 plus yards passing per game (yards by others than Montgomery and Lazard) are spread around among a variety of receivers and presumably a TE or other RB.

This ISU team is built on solid defense and likes to grind it out on offense.

I pedict that ISU will do to us what KSU has done to us in the past and will beat us at home. I hope I'm wrong, but they are seasoned, fundamentally sound across the board and are well coached, whereas we are not very seasoned, and as a result are not very fundamentally sound, though are seemingly more athletically gifted across rhe board. I, unlike so many on this board, have no real qualms with our coaching, but still think we are a 6-6 or 7-5 team at this point and this ISU team looks like it is very solid.



Agree 100%. Our defense is a shitshow so, any team that can line up and snap the ball will have a decent day offensively. Our other problem is a one dimensional offense against a really good defense.

Guess who gets a $300 increase to their "Affordable" healthcare monthly premium next year.


Silver lining: My awesome deductible remains unchanged @ $13,000!!!!

Not an invalid point. But then again, he's about to sign a bill that makes it impossible to have class action lawsuits vs credit card companies. Is that America first? It's actually corporate America first.


I was joking. I doubt his plan was to be such an incompetent phucknugget that members of congress flat out quit to avoid supporting him. I know that he'll claim that he is responsible for this and it is actually what he wants be, we know better.

In regard to the bill prohibiting class action lawsuits against Equifax etc., total and absolute bullshit. It ranks right up there with Bronco Bama giving HSBC a free pass on their criminal behavior. This kind of garbage will continue as long as people keep electing the same dickheads to office.

The voters are the only ones who can "drain the swamp" and they are doing a terrible job of it.
