Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Obamacare

[ Edited ]

What the heck is going on with it? I mean anything, everything regarding it and including Barack, Michelle, their daughters, and anyone/everyone else whom either supports/doesn't it?

I for one really never bought up until now. In which I'm all for it to a point.

Re: Obamacare

The only thing that really bothers me about Obamacare (and I think this will set off an absolute explosion of responses) is the fact that it was shoved down our collective throat without anyone providing any concrete pricing information.  If my income is X dollars per year, and I need Y medical services, how the heck much will my monthly premium be??  And to what extent, if any, will I be entitled to any subsidy of said premium?? 

 

To me, these seem like simple, basic questions that must be answered before Congress can vote to inflict or prevent Obamacare.  But that isn't what happened -- it was just approved, without any pricing debate at all!

 

Does any of this make any sense to anyone else?

Re: Obamacare

Thanx and yeah to everything said here.  I for one would rather see it be half of socialised and half of private so that it would be best of both worlds instead of one of them.  Or whatever its called.
