Obamacare economics assume that a large percentage of the young, healthy people who can afford insurance but choose not to purchase will buy the insurance instead of paying the penalty-tax.
But the penalty-tax is far lower than the cost of insurance and this is probably a bad assumption.
So insurance companies will be stuck with 30 million new moochers and very few additional paying customers.
Not to mention the enormous cost of the really sick with pre-existing conditions.

13 Benghazis That Occurred on Bush's Watch Without a Peep from Fox News

The Republican inquisition over the attacks against Americans in Benghazi has never really gone away, but it appears as though in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing and the House Oversight Committee's Benghazi hearings this week there are renewed psycho-histrionics over Benghazi.

Lindsey Graham and Fox News Channel in particular are each crapping their cages over new allegations from an alleged whistleblower, while they continue to deal in previously debunked falsehoods about the sequence of events during and following the attacks. Fox News is predictably helming the biggest raft of hooey on the situation -- turning its attention to Hillary Clinton in an abundantly obvious early move to stymie her presidential run before it even begins.

So I thought I'd revisit some territory I covered back in October as a bit of a refresher -- especially since it appears as if no one, including and especially the traditional press, intends to ask any of these obnoxious, opportunistic liars about why they're so obsessed by this one attack yet they entirely ignored the dozen-plus consulate/embassy attacks that occurred when George W. Bush and Dick Cheney were allegedly "keeping us safe."

The Benghazi attacks (the consulate and the CIA compound) are absolutely not unprecedented even though they're being treated that way by Republicans who are deliberately ignoring anything that happened prior to Inauguration Day, January 20, 2009.

....Where was your inquest after the Karachi attacks, Mr. Graham? Where were you after the Sana'a attacks, Mr. Hannity? What about all of the embassy attacks in Iraq that I didn't even list here, Mr. McCain? Do you realize how many people died in attacks on U.S. embassies and consulates when Bush was supposedly keeping us safe, Mr. Ailes? Just once I'd like to hear David Gregory or George Stephanopoulos or Wolf Blitzer ask a Republican member of Congress about the above timeline and why they said nothing at the time of each attack. Just once.

Nearly every accusation being issued about Benghazi could've been raised about the Bush-era attacks, and yet these self-proclaimed truth-seekers refused to, in their words, undermine the commander-in-chief while troops were in harm's way (a line they repeated over and over again during those years).

So we're only left to conclude the obvious. The investigations and accusations and conspiracy theories are entirely motivated by politics and a strategy to escalate this to an impeachment trial. In doing so, the Republicans have the opportunity not only to crush the president's second term, but also to sabotage the potential for a Hillary Clinton presidency.

Even if they never arrive at that goal, they have in their possession a cudgel formed of horseshit -- a means of flogging the current administration with the singularly effective Republican marketing/noise machine, including the conservative entertainment complex. Very seldom does this machine fail to revise history and distort the truth. Ultimately, they don't even need a full-blown impeachment proceeding when they have a population of way too many truthers and automatons who take all of these lies at face value -- not to mention dubiously sourced chunks of "truth" proffered by radio and cable news conspiracy theorists who, if nothing else, are masters at telling angry conservatives precisely what they want to hear: that the probably-Muslim president is weak on terrorism. And so they'll keep repeating "Benghazi-Gate, Benghazi-Gate, Benghazi-Gate!" without any regard for history or reality. Like always.

Republicans and the Benghazi Hearings: They Didn't Complain About Bush and All the Terrorist Attacks on Diplomats Under His Watch

In fact, history shows that each of the presidents of the past few decades have had to deal with embassy attacks and bombings. For some reason, I don't ever recall there being so much unrest following an attack as there is now under President Obama.

I guess what really sent me reeling was today when I read about Mike Huckabee's well-crafted remarks on the radio that "Benghazi will be Obama's Watergate" and "this President will not fill out his full term". Excuse me? Let me get this straight. Not only did 9/11 happen on Bush's watch, but seven embassy attacks and Obama is the one that will be ousted? Huckabee claimed that the so-called Benghazi "cover-up" was worse than Watergate "because no one died." Well, I have one question for Mr. Huckabee: How many people died because of the Iraq War "weapons of mass destruction" cover-up? How many American soldiers gave their lives for a war of choice built on exaggeration, manipulation and outright lies? Is that worse than Watergate?

But see, we can't mention that because Bush "kept us safe" remember? Sorry, but if you think that's safe then I have a bridge in San Francisco I want to sell you.

I agree that there may still be some questions that need to be answered regarding the attacks in Benghazi and the families of those who died who have questions deserve to have their questions answered. However, the level of vitriol that is coming out of the Right because of these attacks is undeniably partisan and disgusting.

George W. Bush Didn't Keep Americans Safe Before or After 9/11

There were other terrorist attacks perpetrated on American soil, and thousands of Americans killed in the war of choice he incompetently waged.

For fiscal 2013, the GOP-controlled House proposed spending $1.934 billion for the State Department’s Worldwide Security Protection program — well below the $2.15&#8201;billion requested by the Obama administration. House Republicans cut the administration’s request for embassy security funding by $128 million in fiscal 2011 and $331 million in fiscal 2012.(Negotiations with the Democrat-controlled Senate restored about $88 million of the administration’s request.) Last year, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned that Republicans’ proposed cuts to her department would be “detrimental to America’s national security”— a charge Republicans rejected.

Hey Dumbo. Hicks was in contact with the people on the ground and spoke to the ambassador while the attack was going on.

Did you say: "The video was cited as a possibility"????

See Dumb Dave, this is why you have no credibility. Everyone knows that was a crock of shit. Like someone else says here. You eat whatever shit Obama dished on the plate for you.

You are deranged, idiot.

The border agent was was a victim of a botched sting, nothing more. Happens all the time in the policing business. At least he was trying to do something about the smuggling situation on both sides of the border. As I recall, Bush was supposed to secure the borders when he was still in office, never happened!
You really have a problem with having a black C&C! That 747 us part of the perks that come along with the title of, "president." He ain't doing nothing more than any other president, & alot less than Bush. All his vacationing! He flew af1 like a car to get around town! Check the welfare (TANF) statistics. I'm sure you'll have a change of heart when you realize who majority of the welfare recipients are.
You dudes on this thread deal with emotions like women! Breaking your neck trying to find something that doesn't exist. Fragile as the economy is, you still are wasting tax payers money to investigate a conspiracy theory. Just like the birth certificate bullshit, the Muslim bullshit, & everything else y'all try to use as a smear tactic. Y'all need to grow the f ck up & accept defeat like an adult. Try harder next time to get your candidate elected!
I guess it's too much of a stretch for your tiny brain to get the point about BJ Clinton EXPLOITING HIS POSITION OF POWER over a 20-year-old employee, how it reflects his complete lack of principles, how IF IT HAD BEEN A GOP PRESIDENT you and the National Organization of (liberal) Women would have been howling for his head on a platter. Managers in industry are sued every day for telling a dirty joke on the job, your Boy Wonder got a hummer from his administrative help and THAT'S OKAY WITH YOU.

I guess you don't remember the months that Gingrich and company "shut down" the gubbermint to force BJ to revise his budget, reform welfare. A decade later you dickweeds think it was BJ's idea. Not so.

Fast and Furious was more than a "botched sting". It was a stupid political trick your heroes cooked up to push your leftist gun grab agenda in the US. B!tch Hillary was already preaching to Mexican leaders how border violence was the US's fault because the guns were coming from the US. Then OOOOPS! Somebody accidentally forgot to trace all the guns they gave the cartels! Dang!

Just like Benghazi: which is it? Is B!tch Hillary an incompetent boob or a political hack and liar? It's one or the other. Pick one.

I remember standing in an Embassy Suites room, taking off my tie after work, watching the evening news on TV. It was the day before Monica was going to testify in front of the Grand Jury. Suddenly BJ comes on the screen and announces in his "I'm serious" voice that he had to order cruise missile strikes on Bagdad and the Sudan because of an immediate terrorist threat. I remember thinking how I would be mighty PI$$ED if I were a citizen of Bagdad or the Sudan and the president of the United States were to launch a missile strike against my country to distract the public away from testimony about him getting a hummer.

Then a couple of years later it turns out a guy that lived in the Sudan gets a bunch of fanatics to crash airplanes into buildings.

I don't expect a dickweed like you to ever get it. Like I said, as long as a politician promises you lefties free stuff, promises to protect you from Evil Corporations and tells you the reason you are a pathetic loser is because of Evil Rich People, you'll defend them forever.

Your tax dollars hard at work implementing the fascism of Obama & the leftwing:

"Senior officials at the Internal Revenue Service were aware as early as 2011 that its agents were targeting Tea Party groups to see if they were violating their tax-exempt status, Fox News confirms."

The left hates American values of fairness and a free country. The left wants to persecute YOU!

Totalitarianism is a fundamental principle of the "Control Freak" Democrat Party.

The Federal Government is now singling out people who do not believe like the nutcase Democrats do.
