Shady Moving Company - Blue Jay Van Lines

We hired Budget to move our belonging to CA from TN. The day the movers showed up, I learned Budget had subcontracted the moving of our belongings to a company named Blue Jay Van Lines. The day our belongings were to arrive, we received a call stating that the moving van was in an accident near the border of AZ/CA and that we lost everything. We searched the Internet to see if we could locate the accident and contact ...more »

Nursing Home abuse and neglect

Send undercover workers in to show how residents are cursed, physically and psychologically abused by refusal of basic care. Residents that are unable to feed themselves are starved, the plea for assistance goes unanswered. This is nationwide and is swept under the rug because elders are not revered in this country!

No Doctors Accepting Medicare

We live in Colorado and can not find any doctors that will accept new Medicare patients under the new laws. We both have serious medical problems and just moved here from Florida and every doctor in the Medicare book says they are not taking new patients. This needs to be fixed ASAP.

The difference in health insurance premiums for rural and urban

Rural Americans are really getting a terrible, unaffordable deal under Obamacare. (And I supported the ACA). This would be an easy story to do since all you need to do is enter a few facts into esurance.com and then "edit" the zip code to see what the same family would pay in rural vs urban areas. These are my facts: Premium increase of $633 per month under Obamacare. Facts: Family of three in Colorado, zip code 81321. ...more »

What will happen to Obamacare's Sponsered PCIP Insurance Coverag

I, like Millions others, signed up for the Obamacare PCIP Insurance which is a Government Sponsered Policy that provides Insurance for people with Pre-Existing Conditions. That coverage ends December 31, 2013 and we have all been told it can NOT be renewed past that because of no more Government funding.

Unethical Debit Card Minimum Amount Purchase.

Merchants throughout the New York City (and I assume throughout the country) continue to improperly set minimum amounts to consumers who wish to pay with a Visa or Mastercard debit card. I have been refused to make a purchase on a product (or products) because it does not meet the minimum amount needed to use a debit card. The minimum amount varies from store to store. Only problem is that practice is clearly against ...more »

Monopoly Of Auto Insurance Rates Ripoff

Auto premiums have been skyrocketing for years. If one collects data on the number of accidents along with the number of autos within an area an investigation is needed. In my area less than 1% result in accidents. Even if each accident resulted in both autos being totaled it shows huge profits. I've never been able to review an annual report but I've also never seen an investigative story on this topic. I suspect ...more »

Whatever happened to the Mob?

Is the organized crime of America erased or is it thriving behind the scenes like entering the health care services to grab some of the huge money (1/6 of the economy)? worth a look.

Dermatologists overcharging....

When you go to some ( most) dermatologists they walk into the exam room and immediately spray CO2 on a spot on your arm or someplace. Most insurance companies and Medicare consider this "surgery" and it immediately increases your bill by $200-300. This is wrong and why dermatologists are in the top of highest paid specialties. This needs to stop and I haven't found a specialist that doesn't do this, particularly in ...more »

Educational Disaster Looming

Could you please look into the Common Core Educational initiative and ties to the tech companies that will insanely profit from the same? Basically every school system in the entire nation will be expected to buy computers for every student in the nation at taxpayer’s expense, so that students will be better prepared for the future. However there has never been a single test case regarding the efficacy of the program ...more »

Poisoning Utah

I am dying slowly, my parents both died at a young age. All had some kind of cancer and now I am fighting rotted bones that no doctors want to deal with. We were poisoned by our own government with their chemical weapons. 1980s and 90s were when they burned these chemicals in Utah. I would go into the mountains hunting, places that use to have animals in abundance and now dead in all these areas where they were burning ...more »

College professors requiring students to purchase books

College professors and the colleges requiring students to purchase books the has been authored or contributed to by the teachers or others in the college for the courses. Often I hear from my children and other kids about the requirement for the latest editions that have only minor changes in the book, but because the changes were authored by the teachers, the teachers require the students to purchase the latest edition. ...more »
