I did not provide incorrect information. That information was correct for all of the employees to which it applied. Just because employers in my community buy and administer their group health insurance differently than employers in other parts of the country does not mean that a description of those methods is incorrect. I clearly identified that my comments were based on my own experience.
First, board members criticize because someone makes comments without any backup. So I made some comments and indicated they are experientially based. They are not incorrect, they correctly describe the health insurance situation which a number of people experienced.
So now, you, and others, are just using the fact that another person's personal professional experiences differ from your personal professional experiences as a basis for personal attacks against one whom you dislike.
There is a significant difference between saying something like:
"Administering employer group health plans so that coverage ends at the end of the month is not a universal practice in other states."
and talking about
"shooting your mouth off" and providing incorrect information.
