Still no comment on the lack of subsidies for those who choose the exchange over a qualified employer program?
"Here is the dirty little secret.
If your employer offers you a qualified plan and you decline, you can still buy insurance on the exchange, but you are ineligible for any subsidy, regardless of income.
Check it out before you respond and make a bigger fool of yourself than you obviously are."
If an employer really wanted to screw his low-wage employees, he would offer them the minimum plan acceptable under Obamacare and charge them the maximum premium allowable under Obamacare, thereby disqualifying them from the exchange subsidies if they rejected the employer plan.

There is zero, zip, nada chance that the house would approve any additional funding for Obamacare.
And additional funding, lots of it, will be necessary as the program crashes.
It'll be interesting to see to see if the people hold your conviction in 2014.

Try to get an appointment as a new patient, particularly if you are on Medicare.

Many doctors are retiring early.

HMO plans do not count.
Yeah

Obamacare will result in huge problems and great dissatisfaction in 2014. How and if those problems are resolved remains to be seen. One possible (and likely) solution may be to delay the program start for at least one year.

Problem is, Obama is clueless, believes his own propaganda.

Noooooo... no.... I doubt it.

I suspect he'd imprison those people first to make sure to eliminate the competition. History says so.

That would only leave conservatives behind.

So your criteria is based on who you can't get an appointment with?

The retiring and new doctors is where I was driving this at.

And if you start adjusting plans, then you can craft whatever kinds of situation and situation you want.

Like Issa on the IRS. And the continued banging on Benghazi.

Talk about clueless.

<quoted text>Actually, by the conservative U S Supreme Court upholding the individual mandate (the GOP idea smuggled in to help the Big Insurers) will guarantee that Obamacare remains financially sound and works. Secondly, the Federal government can not penalize states for not expanding their Medicaid programs which means poor people in states that don't expand Medicaid will still be receiving their Federally -mandated Medicaid and Medicare coverage.:-D
Parts of Obamacare are being repealed as fast as democrats and republicans can throw them out the window.

Democrats want to be reelected next year. Republicans knew it was a dud all along.

The only thing that gives Obamacare any merit at all is the preexisting conditions.

<quoted text>Interesting isn't it? bushie boy had no such problems killing American troops and involving the world in invading a sovereign nation for no reason at all.
No reason at all, huh? Is that what you think, missy?

Read the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998 signed by Bill Clinton with every democrat on board.

At least Obama doesn't have to worry about Saddam while he's scratching his head over Syria. He should be on his knees thanking Bush.

Is that your point, son?
