Realtime Obamacare is a Disaster..The Congressional Budget Office while it will put 39 million people on insurance plans; it will drive off more than 23 million more from their existing plans and would still leave about 30 million uninsured!!

The disaster that's coming is already causing a lot of nightmares for democrats. It will go down in history as their and Obama's legacy.
Passing a 2700 page monstrosity without one republican on board, with the majority of Americans against it, and the democrats not even knowing what's in it? Seriously?
This is what liberals will defend to their last breath?
(Probably posted twice. Sorry.)
I can't believe they are still in denial. Must be some strong kool-ade.

Ms Wheeler's son Ben was killed along with 19 other children and six staff when 20-year-old Adam Lanza opened fire at his elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.

The address was broadcast on radio and released as a video online.

This week senators are due to debate new laws that will extend background checks to gun sales made at gun shows and over the internet.

The measures are the result of a bipartisan deal struck between Republican and Democrat senators last week.

Senators later voted to debate the legislation, but no new laws have yet been passed.

A White House call for a ban on assault weapons and a limit to the capacity of ammunition magazines that can be sold has not gained traction among lawmakers.

NBC - Virginia's restrictions on abortion could force abortion clinics to close and join a rapidly growing list of states making it more difficult for women to terminate pregnancies.

An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Thursday found that 52% of Americans believe abortion should be ILLEGAL with some or no exceptions compared with 45% who believe it should be LEGAL most or all of the time.

While you're explaining to me what I'm not getting in the MSN headline, could you also include an explanation of what I'm not getting in this NBC article?

"Two new independent studies of health insurance premiums and health care spending indicate both are rising at an accelerated pace despite President Obama’s 2008 promise to contain those costs and his pledge that his health care legislation would reduce premiums."

Of course, you believe Obama and his spokespeople - as confused and befuddled as they are too about the coming disaster.

They have no choice but to keep talking and hope someone buys it.

Just a heads up...snake oil really doesn't cure anything. It's an intoxicant that makes you feel better until it wears off again.

I'd lay off the stuff if I were you. You're buying into the hype.

I'm telling you this because I care. Real medicine is bitter but it really does make you feel better.

Now open up and swallow...

"During Obama’s term, between 2009 to 2012, premiums have climbed $2,370 for the average family with an employer-provided plan – a rate faster than the during the previous four years under President George W. Bush," according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.

He was a big guy who used both a scalpel and an exacto-knife on his victims.
He would have easily passed a background check at a gun store or show but apparently had know interest in shooting. With two hearing aids that makes sense.

The administration is proposing to extend a freeze on the income brackets at which seniors are liable for the higher premiums until 1 in 4 retirees has to pay. It wouldn't be the top 5 percent anymore, but the top 25 percent.
"Over time, the higher premiums will affect people who by today's standards are considered middle-income," explained Tricia Neuman, vice president for Medicare policy at the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. "At some point, it raises questions about whether Medicare premiums will continue to be affordable."

I’m sure Obama told the Wheeler family prior to her speech he’s ‘Fired Up’ and probably said ‘If I had a son, he'd look like Ben'
Since MS Wheeler put herself into the Political arena I hope a journalist will simple ask the question ‘ MS Wheeler ‘ What part of this Gun Control Legislation that you support would have prevented Sandy Hook and would have prevented your son Death!”

"Our fractured and fragmented health-care system will become even more so as Americans are further divided by income, employment status, and the type of insurance they choose in the exchanges. Despite the modest tax penalties, many will choose to remain uninsured, shifting the cost of care they may need to everybody else."
~Dr. Philip Caper

(Dr. Philip Caper of Brooklin is a founding board member of Maine AllCare, a nonpartisan, nonprofit group committed to making health care in Maine universal, accessible and affordable for all.)

http://www.pnhp.org/news/2012/november/obamac...

Dr. Caper's solution? Simplify health care.

But how could Obama's big government control us if he simplified it?

I imagine minds are going to change when they hear this message enough.

Right on cue!! Classic! I just wish you had the guts to go stand before your black church friends and spew this rewriting of history. Are all of you a bunch of lying fools? It's amazing.

One more time doll, until recently I was paying 100% of the cost for mine and my wife's private health insurance. The price of our premiums increased about $350 over the course of Obama's first term, from about $12,500 per year to about 12,850 per year. I've posted those numbers before and once again Carol I'm not hearing these stories from real people unless they've had to change insurers.

What was the increase under Bush in the Kaiser study?

You must have forgotten my income is supplemental to our family income.

However, we are definitly in the middle class. Since we had to pay back the government in taxes, even if it was a modest amount, I imagine our taxes will be one of the first to go up when Obamacare hits the fan and the rest of us.

On January 1, everyone brought home less in their paychecks.

What happened, Lily? Please tell me Obama didn't lie to us about that too?
