Why do we need more parking when the Metrorail and All Aboard Florida will be right there? Why do we need more driving infrastructure when thousands of new apartments are being built downtown within walking distance? Why does the city think that Miami can handle this constant inflow of more and more cars when we’re already strangling ourselves?

Comment on Obamacare paradox in Florida by russ soule http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2014/08/13/obamacare-paradox-florida/#comment-4935 Fri, 15 Aug 2014 23:24:53 +0000 http://www.miamitodaynews.com/?p=23620#comment-4935 what I find most laughable about all this self-congratulation is that not one of these liberals says who is actually PAYING for the new formerly uninsured under this program. 21 of Florida’s population is under Medicaid. Medicaid is a FEDERAL SUBSIDY PROGRAM that is paid by taxes on labor, yours and mine. Tax Credits under Obamacare are paid by the Income Tax on our already heavily taxed incomes. There has been absolutely NO reduction in the total cost of health insurance, just a shift in who pays for it – THE TAXPAYERS. as to how many have applied for another free benefit, why the heck is that a surprise? what is more surprising is how many HAVE NOT APPLIED for what appears to be a FREE something. Anyone who thinks this is actuarily maintainable is living in a dreamworld!

Comment on Fastest housing growth in Brickell, Edgewater by SEFTA http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2014/07/30/fastest-housing-growth-brickell-edgewater/#comment-4933 Fri, 15 Aug 2014 21:56:58 +0000 http://www.miamitodaynews.com/?p=23409#comment-4933 Massive growth extending north from downtown and no transit even being considered. How many cars does each tower add to the surrounding streets, or is that not a part of the “Planning Process”?

Comment on Obamacare paradox in Florida by visumosyz http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2014/08/13/obamacare-paradox-florida/#comment-4901 Wed, 13 Aug 2014 16:01:09 +0000 http://www.miamitodaynews.com/?p=23620#comment-4901 Only a hyper-partisan fool would defend this Obamacare mess, which is why nearly all Democrats running this year are avoiding talking about it.

Health insurance should be like car insurance and should kick in when there are major problems. Can you imagine what an oil change would cost if it was covered under your auto insurance? You don’t bill your car insurance for oil changes or little scratches in your car’s paint job.

Also – unlike the gov website, auto insurance sites actually work! I pay $24/month for car insurance at Insurance Panda. With healthcare dot gov, it takes me hours to get an unaffordable BS rate. Who can afford $600/month insurance?

All in the plan. Problems at the end so more can say they tried but couldn’t so now anyone can get an extension, further helping enrollment numbers. Add this to the 38 changes made to the law since passage, the joke continues. But, it’s the law of the land and cannot be changed!

Comment on Obamacare paradox in Florida by DC Copeland http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2014/08/13/obamacare-paradox-florida/#comment-4900 Wed, 13 Aug 2014 14:57:52 +0000 http://www.miamitodaynews.com/?p=23620#comment-4900 “Florida taxpayers are helping fund Medicaid expansion in other states but are getting no benefits from it in their own state.

“’It doesn’t make sense,” he added. “It’s more of a political statement.’”

Another reason to vote Scott and his fellow Repugnicants out.

Comment on City may build Miami Worldcenter parking by DC Copeland http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2014/08/13/city-may-build-miami-worldcenter-parking/#comment-4899 Wed, 13 Aug 2014 14:53:15 +0000 http://www.miamitodaynews.com/?p=23610#comment-4899 This sounds like a plan until you realize Art “I never met a parking meter that couldn’t stand a fee hike” Noriega is involved. The Miami Parking Authority is ostensibly supposed to be looking out for the public but from the recent and proposed parking fee hikes, I don’t see it. From the profits it’s making, I expect to read someday that Art is opening the Miami Parking Authority Bank (with locations in each garage and ATMs near its on-street parking meters).

Comment on Fuel may finally flow at Port Miami by DC Copeland http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2014/08/13/fuel-may-finally-flow-port-miami/#comment-4898 Wed, 13 Aug 2014 14:43:25 +0000 http://www.miamitodaynews.com/?p=23625#comment-4898 I’d go for option B which is piping it in from Fisher Island since it’s cheaper, quicker, and preserves limited port land. But what do I know? I’m not a highly paid consultant but I do know that “less is more”

Comment on Graduation rates miss superintendent’s vow by Gabe http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2014/08/06/graduation-rates-miss-superintendents-vow/#comment-4836 Fri, 08 Aug 2014 17:31:40 +0000 http://www.miamitodaynews.com/?p=23500#comment-4836 Just wondering – does the 77% graduation rate include the Charter Schools? I know many Charter Schools have 99% graduation rates which would drive up the average for the district.
