Mr. Shearer should be the last one complaining about healthcare with all the illnesses he has had over the pass couple years. He should be calling Commissioner Wheeland and telling him to keep healthcare for retiring employees who are hired after Jan. 1. Ask Mr. Shearer if he was glad he had it! No more quality employees for Lycoming county!

"I am constantly amazed and appalled at the heartlessness of some individuals. Allow me to quote from the article:

"Providing health care for everyone? It's really an impossible thing as far as I'm concerned," said Shearer..."

The fact that there are people in this country who would deliberately (and apparently with some glee) deprive health care to an ailing fellow human being just defies all that might be good in the world. I'm willing to bet the guy who said this considers himself a Christian, to boot." - Shirly

...AND, "it's not about race". They (typically) throw that one, in, as well.

"I'm really not happy with Obama at all. To me, it seems that he really can't do anything right,"

There's one thing ya' gotta admit, about T-Baggers...there's nothing subtle (or, informed) about their opinions.

There is a new drug floating around Lycoming county, it's "street name" is "STUPIDITY" and this comment proves it! This county is full blown republican and all these off the wall comments are just republicans talking to each other and nothing more than that just like Comm. Wheeland taking away healthcare for new hires at retirement in county government blameing the "ACA" or as the commissioner calls it in a very professional way "OBAMACARE"! If you apply for a job with the county ask them what the retirement package is because there isn't any except the 8% you put in to it from your wages each week and they give you that back when you retire!

Other than the media, who is a fan of Obama????? Getting fooled in the first election is one thing but voting for him again is almost a test of stupidity. Regardless of your political view, Obama doesn't have the comprehension skill in economics or buisness to be making any important decisions for the country. Starting at "cash for clunkers" all the way up to today, not one of these ideas has worked and has only backfired by making a more complicated mess. Obamas has only a one trick solution for everything "throw money at it". If it failed the first time, then throw even more money at it...???? If you can't cook,....stay out of the kitchen.
