    I believe constituents and citizens need to be aware of any inappropriate conduct of their elected officials.  My intent is not to engage in some silly tit-for-tat feud however, Michigan citizens have a right to expect that their Senators conduct themselves in a manner befitting their office.

    Rick Jones is at it again. Somebody needs to put his computer in a lock box
    Unbelievably, I received this Facebook e-mail message from the Senator
    Evidently Rick Jones has never heard of a "Screenshot. A larger version is HERE

    Crazy Rick Jones

    More below

    Rick Jones took to his computer and e-mailed me on Facebook because he was feeling the displeasure from his constituents (fortunately I am not one) and others from a post I did HERE about the passing of SB 693(setting up an Obama Care Insurance Exchange in Michigan) and those who voted "Yes." including  Jones. I also made note of his now infamous comment made on the Senate floor that he had to "plug his nose and vote for the bill"

    Sending a harassing and bullying e-mail is disgraceful behavior from a Senator and violates CHAPTER I - SECTION 3 LEGISLATIVE CONDUCT AND ETHICS
1.301 LEGISLATIVE CONDUCT of the Michigan Legislative Handbook & Directory states:
    Each Senator shall conduct himself or herself to justify the confidence placed in him or her by the people and shall, by personal example and admonition to colleagues, maintain the integrity and responsibility of his or her office.

    This incident is particularly disconcerting to women or anyone who has ever been the victim of harassment.

    In addtion, the fact that he initiated contact with me, several times and then continued, escalating to harassing, and factious insults could rise to a level of cyberstalking. Considering that Rick Jones was a sheriff before starting a new career in politics makes his behavior even more shocking. His constituents and Michigan deserve better.

    Does he really have an (R) behind his name?  Sounds more like an OWS type!

    Technically, I can see how that'll fit.

    Personally, it sounds like the good senator has got a little too much free time on his hands to be lurking about Facebook, making inane comments.

    Wow. Not only is Jones demented... (none / 0) (#7)

    ...Jones is dangerous too.  Everyone see this yet?

    Here's an idea: when the Supreme Court holds their five-hour long oral arguments on The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, perhaps they could discuss what Jonathan Adler and Michael Cannon refer to in the Wall Street Journal as "a major glitch that threatens its basic functioning."

    The two authors even claim that the aforementioned "glitch" is so huge that the Obama administration is trying to fix it by rewriting the bill without involving Congress.

    What's the "glitch"? Adler and Cannon explain:

    The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act offers "premium assistance"--tax credits and subsidies--to households purchasing coverage through new health-insurance exchanges. This assistance was designed to hide a portion of the law's cost to individuals by reducing the premium hikes that individuals will face after ObamaCare goes into effect in 2014. (If consumers face the law's full cost, support for repeal will grow.)

    The law encourages states to create health-insurance exchanges, but it permits Washington to create them if states decline. So far, only 17 states have passed legislation to create an exchange.

    This is where the glitch comes in: ObamaCare authorizes premium assistance in state-run exchanges (Section 1311) but not federal ones (Section 1321). In other words, states that refuse to create an exchange can block much of ObamaCare's spending and practically force Congress to reopen the law for revisions. [Emphasis added]

    The Obama administration wants to avoid that legislative debacle, so this summer it proposed an IRS rule to offer premium assistance in all exchanges "whether established under section 1311 or 1321." On Nov. 17 the IRS will hold a public hearing on that proposal. According to a Treasury Department spokeswoman, the administration is "confident" that offering premium assistance where Congress has not authorized it "is consistent with the intent of the law and our ability to interpret and implement it."

    Rest here
