You almost have to admire McCain for his pettiness. The last big thing he wanted to do (in his career - perhaps life) was screw over Trump, and by golly he did it. His constituents, his party, his entire lifetime of achievements be damned - his hatred for Trump must run that deep, he was willing to make it his defining moment in life.

The new sound effect they play before the 'pedestrian, bus is approaching' spiel on turning buses and trolleys is horrible. It sounds like a noise a cb radio makes. I guess they did studies for the most annoying sound, so that people instinctively look up?

Joe Lanzilotta did this one (local guy).

The vote last night is extremely disheartening. As a small business owner I have seen my company's premiums double over the last 6 years. I do know whenever government becomes involved in a matter the end result is never a less cumbersome or less expensive result. I want to expand my business, but, it is extremely difficult to do so when you can only hire part-time employees. I am sure there are many other small business owners on this forum that are in my exact position.

The solution to this problem is to take employers out of the equation. I am actually okay with removing the mandate that employers have to provide health insurance as long as they keep the mandate that individuals must buy insurance. If more people were buying insurance from the marketplaces, more insurance companies would be offering plans on the marketplaces.

In fact, I would hope that in the long run, we phase out the concept of employers being allowed to provide health care. It doesn't make any sense that if I changed jobs, I would have to change health insurance plans. My employers should pay me in cash and I should be able to decide which insurance plan I buy on the market. It also leaves to door open to Hobby Lobby and other religious employers telling their employees which types of birth control they're allowed to buy.

Regarding the building at the s.e. corner of West 29th and Detroit, here it's now got this all-black, sleek, sort of elegant walk on the West 29th side, and on the south walk is this huge, gaudy, colorful mural.... Does anyone else think it distracts from the bewly rebuilt building's beauty?

I think it looks really cool.

I was at a public event last month where whoever was speaking mentioned the greenway project was a long way off. Not sure if it was a council person or parks official.
About a week ago the PD had an article regarding colorful murals being painted by students in the vicinity of the greenway and madae it sound like work would be done very soon.

They just completed a very nice mural that takes up the whole south facing wall of Lorain between the bridges over the red line and Columbus

I thought the greenway phase 1 was opening was around 2020. They're hosting a 5k down there in September which should be cool.

I really like the yellow mural. It was on the building before they renovated it and I'm glad they retained it.

I know of entrepreneurs in the exact opposite position.   They would not have been able to start a business without guaranteed pre existing conditions at affordable rates.

Just curious, would you not provide insurance at all without ACA?

Unfortunately, there may be only three good Republicans that I know of this morning. Fortunately, because of their actions last night, I do know their names and who to thank.

I thank them because, as a private contractor, I could not afford health care the way it was before Obamacare. I would have to go back to working for someone else offering healthcare plan in order to make a living. And I'm much happier working as a private contractor. I control my hours of work and thus get to spend more time with my wife and son.
