The compensation IS NOT TEMPORARY. Only the 100% reimbursement is temporary..three years. After that, the compensation is set to never be less than 90%. The ACA is not funded by tax payer dollars.
Eighty five percent of the people signing up are signing up for Medicaid,tax payers pay for Medicaid.

Did DumbfckDave really claim that the "ACA prohibits the board from rationing healthcare?"

Really?

Have you seen Obama's job approval rating?
http://directorblue.blogspot.com/
Last month, Pew Research: 65% Disapprove of Obama's Handling of Economy

Last week, Gallup poll: 54% of Americans disapprove of new law; up from 49% in late August.

Those numbers will change again after the first of the year when millions more lose employer-based coverage.

How can we stand by while Democrats destroy our freedoms?

Democrats will be having the Federal Government give our tax dollars to the companies Democrats have been calling greedy evil HMO's for the last three decades. The payments will be based on estimates from the "greedy" HMO's.

Why should we allow criminals like Obama who lies to us and abuses his power to stay in office?

I have a feeling 2014 will be the beginning of the end of Obama and liberalism (communism by Democrats).

Many Americans will not be able to afford the new health care because the deductibles are way to high . People will be paying 100% for doctor office visits and more till they reach the 3 , 4 or 5 thousand dollar deductible while still paying premiums . If you do not get insurance you will have to pay a fine . But many illegals have signed up and are going to get free medicaid . One million have signed up in Texas alone . The Government is going to take your money and give it to the criminals who are here illegally . Make no mistake our country is under attack .
We need to get a bunch of Americans together and go down to Senator Bill Nelsons office and get some answers . We can no longer depend on the criminals in our crooked government to work for the American people .
Unfortunately, we're just going to have ride this out until the law implodes upon itself.

Only then will people start listening to voices of reason again.

Right now, the polls aren't bad enough and too many people are still hanging on to Obama's impossible dream.

He's like the modern-day Don Quixote confusing windmills with reality and liberals still find that noble.

ObamaCare will have to destroy itself. Nothing can change that at this point. What happens after it does is anyone's guess.

Obama was out again today pleading with his base to get the word out about his new law.

As Dana Perino said today, we've heard enough words and enough talking and not enough action.

Obama Drops The Hammer on Republicans and Shatters Their Obamacare Repeal Fantasy

"Look, I’ve always said that I will work with anybody to implement and improve this law effectively. If you got good ideas, bring ‘em to me. Let’s go. But we’re not repealing it as long as I am president. I want everybody to be clear about that."

President Obama is going to be in the White House for three more years, and he is not going to budge an inch on the ACA. The president was calling out the Republicans on two different levels. He was shattering their fantasy that they can repeal the ACA if they take back the Senate in 2014, and he was challenging Republicans to offer an alternative on healthcare.

Republicans don’t want to offer an alternative on healthcare, because then they will be forced to admit that their alternative is to do nothing. President Obama’s remarks today suggest that Democrats feel like the momentum is shifting back to them on healthcare. The numbers are coming in, and it is clear that the ACA is working.

Remember how the media and Republicans said that the ACA website had doomed the Obama presidency? Not so much. Obama doesn’t look like a president in crisis now.

President Obama has the high ground, and he’s smashing the delusions of the ACA’s opponents.

Give it up, Republicans. Repeal is never going to happen.

President Barack Obama said Tuesday the troubled Affordable Care Act website is now "working well for the vast majority of users" and vowed to fight continued Republican efforts to strip away the law's protections.
"Now, we may never satisfy the law's opponents, I think that's fair to say," Obama said in White House remarks intended to move news coverage away from problems with the website to the 2010 health law's promises of affordable health coverage for millions of Americans.
"Some of them are rooting for this law to fail -- that's not my opinion, by the way, they say it pretty explicitly," the president said. "Some have already convinced themselves that the law has failed, regardless of the evidence."
haha...it's already failed.

"At the end of September, the federal government's fiscal year was drawing to a close, the threat of a shut down was increasing, and the State Department was shopping for art. Four contracts were awarded in the last two weeks of September, including $1,000,000 for a granite sculpture by Irish-born artist Sean Scully to be installed at the new U.S. Embassy in London. Notice of the awards was posted Sunday afternoon of Thanksgiving weekend on the Federal Business Opportunities website."
