Republicans and Democrats in Washington Conspire to Exempt Themselves from Obamacare

If Congress does this, there must be repercussions from the public. You know I don’t think highly of congress critters, but I just can’t imagine the GOP being stupid enough to do this. Yes, I recognize they’re the stupid party, but still.

Carol, either you are the world's biggest liar or the world's most duped person.
The 800K job losses was more like 700k.
It was not really job losses but job equivalent losses. These were the accumulation of hours people would choose to no longer to work because they would not need as much money for healthcare.
Read the CBO report instead of regurgitating right whiner lies about this.
I am typing slowly.

IT is -got that?
that Obamacare -still following?
will cost 800K jobs.-wow, that was simple

Mother Jones: Frank Luntz Calls Right-Wing Talk Radio ‘Problematic’ For GOP
GOP strategist Frank Luntz went off the record before a group of college Republicans earlier this month at the University of Pennsylvania to discuss the negative impact he believes right-walk talk radio has had on the GOP, Mother Jones reported Thursday.
"And they get great ratings, and they drive the message, and it's really problematic," Luntz said of right-wing talk-radio programs, according to a recording of the event. Luntz added that talk radio has been especially damaging to Sen. Marco Rubio's immigration reform efforts.
"He's getting destroyed," Luntz said, "by Mark Levin, by Rush Limbaugh, and a few others. He's trying to find a legitimate, long-term effective solution to immigration that isn't the traditional Republican approach, and talk radio is killing him. That's what's causing this thing underneath. And too many politicians in Washington are playing coy."
According to Mother Jones' piece, written by David Corn, Luntz asked the audience to allow him to speak off the record, prompting one college newspaper reporter to switch off his device. But another student, Aakash Abbi, captured the sound bite on his iPhone.
Corn has built a reputation reporting on surreptitious recordings, starting with Mitt Romney's "47 percent" comments and continuing with a secretly recorded Mitch McConnell campaign strategy meeting.

he's just telling us what the sane folks already know.
It's getting to the point where you can actually spot the people who are the dittoheads; they're always mad and grimacing, impatient and rude; I have overheard many say in waiting rooms where CNN is on "oh, can't you change that to Fox" and when told no, hurrrmph off in a huff.
What is the number one thing I hear them say? They want to take our guns.

For people who claim to love the constitution, Fox News pundits sure seem to be hemorrhaging amendments according to Jon Stewart. On Wednesday night, he took the network to serious task for its emotional and math-challenged reaction to the Boston bombing and the handling of Dzokhar Tsarnaev in the days since his arrest.
In clip after clip, "The Daily Show" host tracked pundits suggesting actions that would disregard the Bill of Rights, including Ann Coulter insisting that Tamerlan Tsarnaev's wife be arrested for wearing a hijab. "Ann Coulter doesn't just want a police state," Jon marveled, "she wants a fashion police state."
Fortunately, even while ripping the constitution to shreds, there's one amendment the right will always defend, the second one. But even that's a slippery slope Jon pointed out: "God help us if the muslims ever decide to form a well-regulated militia."

I heard that instead of the wedding march they're going to play Bob Dylans Everybody Must Get Stoned:

They'll stone you when you're trying to be so good
They'll stone you just like they said they would
They'll stone you when you're trying to go home
They'll stone you when you're there all alone
But I would not feel so all alone
Everybody must get stoned

They'll stone you when you're walking on the street
They'll stone you when you're trying to keep your seat
They'll stone you when your walking on the floor
They'll stone you when your walking to the door
But I would not feel so all alone
Everybody must get stoned

You and congressional Democrats put your own political careers at risk to produce the most meaningful health care reform this country has seen in 45 years in an effort to expand access to care for nearly 30 million uninsured Americans. While some may criticize you for abandoning the public option, these individuals forget the ardent opposition and misinformation campaign waged against it, culminating in Senator Joe Lieberman's last minute reversal, deciding to vote against any reform with such a measure. This, as you know, is what effectively struck the the final nail in the coffin of the Public Option.'

nobamaredux misinformed when he wrote, "The problem is that millions Americans who are currently insured will lose their coverage ..." No, thanks to the Medical Loss Ratio in Obamacare , American insurance consumers are getting betting quality healthcare for the buck or receiving rebates(in the millions of dollars) at the expense of the big Insurers. Check this out: http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/ "A lesser-known but important provision in “Obamacare” that regulates how health insurance companies spend their money is yielding benefits for consumers, a new study finds.

By this August, insurers are projected to send consumers a total of $1.3 billion in rebates, according to a Kaiser Family Foundation analysis released Thursday —$541 million to large employers,$377 million to small businesses and $426 million to people with their own insurance plans.

The rebates are the result of a rule in the Affordable Care Act that requires insurance companies to spend at least 80 percent or 85 percent of premium earnings on health care — as opposed to marketing and administrative activities — or otherwise send money back to consumers."
