Now Obama wants to shut down the government over a brief delay of one part of a very unpopular law.
And yet the candidate who promised to repeal this "very unpopular" law was defeated and the one who actually enacted it won. Go figure! Also Republicans who were opposed to the ACA lost seats in both houses of congress.

Your implacable hatred of President Obama makes you completely unable to give him any credit for anything. Hatred makes people stupid Carol and you're a prime example of that.
You can make all of the hate filled and demeaning comments you want about the President Carol but the fact remains that he's the president and you're an ignorant nobody.

The Disarray, Dysfunction, and Legislative Blundering of the Congressional GOP

To state the obvious, Republicans are facing a collective action problem. Successive rounds of budget brinkmanship are redounding to the benefit of a small number of Republican lawmakers, who are building their profile and fundraising on the strength of their theatrics. At the same time, successive rounds of budget brinkmanship risk undermining the political prospects of Republican candidates in competitive districts, and they might undermine the GOP brand more broadly.

More proof that we're closer to reaching that society shown in the movie, Idiocracy. The low informed voting public is tipping towards more takers than givers.

The candidate who promised to repeal the next huge government boondoggle also predicted that Russia would do exactly what it just did to "The One."

GOP Activists vs.‘Donorists’: Pick Your Poison

....the push to “defund,” or merely delay the implementation of Obamacare is maybe the most moronic and counterproductive gambit yet devised by the fire-breathing right flank of the congressional GOP.

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/gop-ac...

Here’s the bad-to-worse takeaway: the K-Street Republicans may be about the cynical business of lining the pockets of their bespoke suits. But the true believers are no more capable of leading the party out of the political wilderness in which it found itself last November.

The clueless will be initiated by fire when they are dumped into an exchange after employers keep cutting healthcare as a benefit.

The National Journal — not generally known as part of the vast right-wing conspiracy — found that, even after accounting for subsidies, most Americans will pay more in premiums for ObamaCare plans than they do for their employee plans today.

And out-of-pocket costs — deductibles, copayments, co-insurance — are all likely to be higher for exchange-based plans.

A study by Avalere Health found that ObamaCare’s “affordable” bronze plans had an average deductible of $5,150, more than four times higher than the average deductible in employer-sponsored coverage this year.

By one estimate, all the ADDED COSTS for the average family of four over the next eight years add up to an extra $7,450 due to ObamaCare.

There will be FEWER CHOICES:
Those shopping on the exchange are apt to find relatively few plans to choose from, since several large insurers have declined to participate. In New York, for example, Aetna, the nation’s No. 3 insurer, has withdrawn from the state-run exchange.

And the insurance plan you buy may not include your current doctor.(didn't "The One" make a speech promising if you like your doctor, you can keep him or her?") As The New York Times reports, many insurers are trying to control costs by cutting down the number of hospitals and doctors in their networks.

‘Glitches’:
That’s what the Obama administration euphemistically calls some early problems. For example, that the software that determines how much people actually have to pay for the insurance can’t actually calculate the price. Oops.

No wonder the same unions that pushed for Obammycare are now upset and Nancy Pelosi who didn't read it but passed it won't ever have to use it.

President Barack Obama famously promised,“If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.” He later got even more specific.

“If you are among the hundreds of millions of Americans who already have health insurance through your job, or Medicare, or Medicaid, or the VA, nothing in this plan will require you or your employer to change the coverage or the doctor you have,” Obama said.

But as Obamacare’s rollout approaches, we have learned this is not true. Here are the ten states where consumers may like their health care plans, but they won’t be able to keep them.

1) California: 58,000 will lose their plans under Obamacare. The first bomb dropped in California with a mass exodus from the most populated state’s Obamacare exchange. Aetna, the country’s largest insurer, left first in July and was closely followed by UnitedHealth. Anthem Blue Cross pulled out of California’s Obamacare exchange for small businesses as well.

Fifty-four percent of Californians expect to lose their coverage, according to an August pol

2) Missouri: Patients of the state’s largest hospital system — which spans 13 hospitals including the St. Louis Children’s Hospital — will not be covered by the largest insurer on Obamacare exchanges, Anthem BlueCross BlueShield. Anthem covers 79,000 patients in Missouri who may seek subsidies on Obamacare exchanges, but won’t be able to see any doctors in the BJC HealthCare system.

3) Connecticut: Aetna, the third largest insurer in the nation, won’t offer insurance on the Obamacare exchange in its own home state, where it was founded in 1850. The reason?“We believe the modification to the rates filed by Aetna will not allow us to collect enough premiums to cover the cost of the plans and meet the service expectations of our customers,” said Aetna spokesman Susan Millerick.

4) Maryland: 13,000 individuals covered by Aetna and its recently-purchased Coventry Health Care won’t be able to keep their insurance plans if they want Obamacare subsidies on the exchanges. Aetna and Coventry canceled plans to offer insurance in the exchange when state officials wouldn’t allow them to charge premiums high enough to cover costs.

5) South Carolina: 28,000 people were insured by Medical Mutual of Ohio, SC’s second-largest insurance company, until it decided to leave the state entirely in July due to Obamacare’s “vast and quite complex” new regulations. Company spokesman Ed Byers said Medical Mutual’s patients would be switched over to United Healthcare plans instead.

6) New York: Aetna pulled out of New York’s exchange in late August in an effort to keep their plans “financially viable,” said Aetna spokeswoman Cynthia Michener.

7) New Jersey: 1.1 million Aetna customers are at risk in New Jersey, where the leading insurer also won’t be a part of the exchange. Just 2,600 patients purchase individual plans with the company, but any looking to take advantage of subsidies on the exchange for unaffordable employer-based insurance won’t be able to do with Aetna.

8) Iowa: Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Iowa’s largest health insurer, decided not to offer plans in the Obamacare exchange. It sells 86 percent of Iowa’s individual health insurance plans.

9) Wisconsin: Two of the three largest insurers in the state won’t offer plans on the exchange. United Healthcare and Humana patients will have to get a new health insurer to buy insurance on Obamacare exchanges.

10) Georgia: Just five insurers are participating in Georgia’s Obamacare exchange. Medical Mutual of Ohio left Georgia and Indiana as well as South Carolina, due to Obamacare regulations. Aetna, along with Coventry, also decided against participating in the George health exchange.

<quoted text> Oh no! You really didn't just say that? "The law may apply to all but it really only affects those without photo ID". hahahahaha!!! Man, I would be pissed if I thought my party thought I was to stupid to get an photo ID if I wanted to vote. Well, wait a minute. They are to stupid to get a photo ID if they want to vote. Never mind.
Now Flacktard calls black people stupid. Or are you calling poor people stupid? Maybe you are calling those elderly without a photo ID stupid.

Which is it Flack?

Here in the county I live, I am 20 miles from a photo center. How does a person get to that photo ID center to get that photp ID? Obviously, they do not drive.

These laws are , by definition, voter suppression.

Republicans know that when they erect this photo ID hurdle than many will not get that ID & thereby no longer vote. This was the purpose of this law because there is no evidence of significant voter fraud that a photo ID requirement will stop.

NONE

It has nothing to do with why they would not get a photo ID.

Some may just give up voting. Some just can't get that ID. The reason is not relevant.

What is relevant is that Republicans are engaging in voter suppression with the sole purpose of reducing the black / Democrat vote.

This this pretend Constitution lover, Flack, is all for it.

I bet Flack went to 95 North of Richmond to worship that large Confederate Flag when they raised it.
