Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield Confirms Plan To Drop Most Small Group Plans In New York

Do you see why your health premiums are so high and going higher. ObamaCare adds benefits- covering preconditions, children until they are 26, insuring millions more people, etc. Someone has to pay for this. It cant be free. Even if it was free dont you think it would be accounted for in your taxes? Health companies are allowed to write business and try to make a profit. How long do you think the company you work for would be in business if they didnt make a profit. When the world doesnt realize is someone has to pay for all the entitlements. What am I missing?"

Yes - a safety net for those who are less fortunate. Never compromise on being a caring society. Some people abuse healthcare- going to the doctor for simple colds, not taking care of themselves, smoking to much- etc. some doctors abuse healthcare- ordering more tests then are necessary- prescribing medication that is not necessary- overing billing health carriers- some courts abuse healthcare with crazy mal-practice lawsuits. Wny dont we address this? I thought obama was running on "transparency"- fighting abuse in the system. But no he shoved Obamacare down on us and now we are paying for it and he and the other legislators enjoy a 1st class free healthcare system." Nov 4, 11 7:07 PM

You cant blame Obama. He was a community activist. He is used to taking from the hard working american "haves" and giving it to the "have nots". He ran on this platform. "Spread the wealth around" - remember. Pelosi, Reid, Frank- are more guilty. They set the stage for many of the failures of the present. They continue to perpetuate it along with our President. Use your votes to get them out." Nov 6, 11 8:40 AM

All for the State Plans. And thats why other state plan participants from other countries come here for their care when their lives are depending on it. We sure did a great job with social security- and all the other state run institutions. " Nov 6, 11 12:29 PM

Residents Irate Over Proposed Hangars In Westhampton

Exactly- live near an existing airport and expect noise. Want to bring jobs to the area - create an atmosphere where jobs can be sustained. Look at the airport in the summer- its filled with private jets with owners spending their money and keeping the taxes lower out here. The area is desperate for business- why does it keep getting squelched. 2 stories- 3 stories- big deal for the hotel. Its not a highrise. It means jobs. The place would be filled most of the year.

Westhampton Beach Village Police Chief Inks New Contract

YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME. This Police Chief is not even seen around town. We are STUCK with him until 2015? The only time I see him is when he is in the paper for his mis-management of the Police Dept. Another ineffective entitlement seeker we will be paying for for many, many years. WAKE UP MAYOR.
WAKE UP Trustees who perpetuate this disgrace to the village." Nov 11, 11 12:13 AM

Must be in disguise. Tell me where he will be patrolling this weekend and I will look for him. i guess hes also not using his Village provided car since thats sitting in the Village Hall lot. " Nov 11, 11 5:59 PM

Parents Blast East Hampton School Board Over Handling of Graffiti Incident

I agree with the above. Stupid prank. I also blame the parents of those who did it for not teaching them right from wrong. The real world will teach them soon enough if they dont figure it out for themselves. They live in a global world now and not many will tolerate that behavior." Nov 16, 11 8:07 PM

Westhampton Beach Mayor Won't Check Out Supermarket Proposal

The Mayor and Board dont get that shopping on Main Street and grocery shopping are two different activities. Promote new business Mayor. The taxes will help to support the new generous contract you just gave the police Chief. Did you read Newsday last week? The funding of pension benefits the Village will be paying its employees- police- and yes teachers and administration staff (Southampon Town) will double by 2013. Us 1% will have no problem funding these pensions. Keep up the good work bringing jobs to this area. I'll remember on election day. I'm on my way to have dinner with Warren Buffet now." Nov 18, 11 9:16 PM

I guess you have not been to Waldbaums to see the quality of produce or the aged dilapidated store. This town needs business (tax revenue) to support itself. Possibly a vibrant year round Main Street in our future. But we need more business. I would prefer to shop locally- support local jobs and business then go two or three towns over. If you take a moment to look you will see the fabric slowly being destroyed as we speak." Nov 19, 11 7:37 AM

Westhampton Beach Mayor Won't Check Out Supermarket Proposal

Westhampton Beach does need a new Mayor. Unfortunately he does what he wants and not what his constituents want. Typical politician. He seems to want to keep the town a sleepy little eastend town not realizing its needs to grow to survive. " Dec 1, 11 8:48 AM

Westhampton Beach Approves New PBA Contract

Im sure the Mayor gave it away again. Did they order a takeout buffet from Waldbaums to celebrate?" Dec 9, 11 9:26 AM

The one guy who i think speaks his mind, doesn't follow the pack, and has the good go the Village in mind. I'm sure there is a good reason. " Dec 9, 11 8:08 PM

'Occupy' To March In Southampton Village On Sunday

Eastport South Manor Middle School Parents Are Ticked Over Curriculum Changes

Seems like a good idea for all kids to get to an advanced level if they are to compete in the world today. Unfortunately the ones who are getting thrown in now without the prior background could suffer initially. I see to much emphasis being placed on sports today and not on education. Parents need to decide on sports or education. Look at the Southampton Press for example a whole section on HS sports and nothing on education. . It's a rare kid who who can make it in sports. It's just as rare a kid who can make it in both. Parents also need to attend the meetings if they want to be informed. " Dec 17, 11 9:26 AM

Eyewitnesses Share Experiences Moments Before Wrong-Way Driver Dies In Head-On Crash On Sunrise Highway In Westhampton

Xtiego- Great Idea. Nothing fiscally irresponsibly about saving a person or persons life. Unfortunately in the 21st Century we have greater population and more travel. I also passed that accident about an hour after it happened and had 2 children in the car with me. I pray the people hit have a speedy recovery and to the police, fire department and first responders great work." Jan 1, 12 5:44 PM

Sandpebble Wins A Round Against The East Hampton School District

We need to start having these Public officials be PERSONALLY liability for their actions and may be they would use a little more professionalism in the way they conduct themselves. Why should the Town be liability for their negligence? Yes yes I know we did vite them in." Jan 6, 12 9:19 AM

Developer Seeks Change To Westhampton Beach Zoning Code To Allow For New Supermarket

Its not about having to drive somewhere else its about attracting locals to shop where they live- hire local people- help the economy. Have non Westhampton people come to our town and shop.

The Mayor needs to wake up and not be so difficult. He needs to follow the wishes of the voters and not his own. How about a vote Mayor?

Come on Mayor bring some life back into this town!!!" Jan 10, 12 7:59 AM
