What I think is amazing is Gary Peter's district is on the east side of the state and Grand RapidsRead Morei s on the west. People need to think about what they are exposed to.

Humor, type into google anti obamacare and the Wendt family commercial comes up. Actually theRead Moretruth is they pay about the same as their old policy, have better coverage and pays for the five kids expenses. The family is eligible for the CHIPS program in Michigan...from what I understand this based on income. Shannon Wendt declined because she didn't like the participating physicians. The husband sell real estate and she is a stay at home mom, they live in a beautiful large lake home.

Thank you Misty, Very interesting. Too bad the RIGHT people don't believe this.

I concur Lee. Actually, as I live in Dexter, I desire to see her relocate.

Well, the well funded 6.3 million dollar ad buy by the Koch Brothers is on the west side of theRead Morestat e with the same lies. http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2014/03/west_michigan_woman_featured_i.html http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/fact-checker/wp/2014/03/26/big-claims-few-details-in-anti-obamacare-ad-alleging-soaring-costs/?wprss=rss_national n this last link is this information. Wendt, incidentally, is a Republican precinct delegate for Michigan’s 2nd congressional district. In June, she signed a toughly worded petition warning GOP lawmakers in the Michigan House of Representatives not to accept expansion of Medicaid or the creation of a health care exchange permitted under the Affordable Care Act—or face a suspension of “all monetary and logistical support.” The petition sought to bind the Republicans to the themes of the party’s 2012 platform that declared the law was an “attack on our Constitution” and an “attempt to impose upon Americans a euro-style bureaucracy.”

Dear Mr Walters, As you already know, we are very sorry for the length of time that your repairRead Moretook . Unfortunately, your insurance requires us to use a specialty lab located in New York and their timing is not under our control. Trust me - it does not make us happy either! As you know, we informed you of these delays throughout. We even contacted your insurance company to have them discuss the delay with you as well. We will not, however, respond to profane, abusive, distasteful phone calls from you. That is shameful. We truly are sorry for the delay. Hopefully, you are pleased with your glasses and will enjoy them for a long time.

Mr. Walters, I have to say that my family has been going to this eye center since they opened. WeRead Moreh ave only had the best care and been treated like family every year we go to get our eyes checked. They have been excellent! We will continue to go to Dexter Family Eye care for all of our needs. I never will hesitate to refer anyone who needs glasses or contacts to this office. Maybe you should be writing this about your Insurance Company instead of putting the blame on the middleman. I only have great things to say about this business!

Daniel Lai was transferred to another Patch (I think) probably about a year ago. There were 2Read Morewomen "reporters" who replaced him. I can't remember who they were because I haven't seen their names on anything in a really long time. Please, contact the Patch and complain. We are not being represented, things dated January 31 are still showing up as news items. This is ridiculous.

FYI, the entire Michigan Patch staff was laid off on Jan. 29 as part of a restructuring effort.Read MoreThis is a user-supported site and you can still post blogs, events and items on the boards.
