In many states, mine included, all sorts of paperwork is required to obtain an official DMV photo ID, enough that plenty of older folks just say fk it. Some immigrants can't even obtain some of the paperwork and must hire attorneys. www.gathergoget.com
Those who cannot obtain a photo ID are non-participants in society.

The president makes his pitch for Obamacare
The enrollment delay is the latest in a series affecting Obamacare's implementation. In April, the administration decided to narrow the scope of the SHOP exchanges. In 2014, businesses that turn to the exchanges will be limited to choosing a single plan to cover all their employees. It'll be another year before they can put employees on different plans.
Then in July, the administration pushed back the employer mandate. Previously, companies with 50-plus full-timers had to start providing coverage in 2014 or face penalties. Now they have until 2015. To top of page http://money.cnn.com/2013/09/26/smallbusiness ...

Previously, companies with 50-plus full-timers had to start providing coverage in 2014 or face penalties. Now they have until 2015.HOWEVER MOST OF THE POOR PEOPLE HAVE GOT TO GET IT NOW!OBAMA SAYS IF HOUSE OR THE SEN. VOTE TO DELAY HIS HEALTH CARE HE WILL VETO IT?WAKE THE HELL UP USA!IT IS THE DEM AND
OBAMA WAY OR THE HIGHWAY!!!!!
DEM AND OBAMA ARE 100% TO BLAME FOR SHUTTING DOWN GOV!THE DEM ARE NOT LOOKING AFTER THE MIDDLE CLASS PEOPLE!
Obama today: "I will absolutely not negotiate."

Well, that certainly proves we don't have a narcissist leader who has no concept of governance and how it's supposed to work.

The only negotiation the GOP hoped for was fairness for all Americans - not just corporations and Congress.

The only way that the IRS can collect the tax is if you are foolish enough to mismanage your withholding so that you are due a refund that they can confiscate. There are no liens or criminal penalties. The system was designed to encourage fraud.

If the Democrats and their appointees can't even make a website work, imaging about the security/confidentiality implications.

If they can't even get step # 1 right during implementation, how can anyone have confidence in these Democrats when it comes to their health?

You will get a website message saying, sorry Obamacare is down, enjoy your death....

I'd be careful with the use of the word "voted". Finding the multitude of places where the voting machines were programmed to steal 100% of the vote was child's play. Finding the places where the voting machines were programmed to steal one in three or one in four votes is virtually impossible. I don't think every voting machine programmed to steal votes was programmed by someone stupid enough to write a program to steal all the votes. Somebody has to press the wrong button by mistake.

For Obama to have done something wrong, he actually would have to have done something. He doesn't do anything. Trying to pin something on him is chasing your tail because he's never done anything... in his entire life.
The real president is Vallerie Jarrett. That should be the target. Make her come out from behind her cover and expose herself. As long as people continue to accept the charade that Obama is the actual president, she can continue to abuse the authority of the presidency without any fear of being caught in the act.
Go after Vallerie Jarrett. Any other direction or target is wasting time and continuing to run in circles.

Senators met Tuesday morning and again voted to table a House passed CR bill. The latest bill would have delayed the health care act and also requests that the House and Senate meet in a conference to work out their differences. After the 12am deadline passed this morning the White House Budget office instructed agencies to shut down.

On Monday night, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) stated that "we will not go to conference with a gun to our heads." He requested that the House pass a "clean" CR and then go to conference on the broader budget bills.

The fiscal year ended at midnight Monday and non-essential functions of the federal government shut down. Essential functions, such as national security and public safety, will continue to operate.

The Senate took votes on two different sets of House amendments Monday, voting each time to table the amendments, both of which would have delayed the Affordable Care Act for one year.

The Senate version of the CR is an amended version of the House bill. The House originally sent over a bill that would defund "Obamacare" and fund the government through Dec. 15. The Senate amended that bill to strip the defunding provision and fund the government through Nov. 15. The House version of the CR includes the last amendment passed on Monday afternoon, which would delay the individual mandate portion of the health care bill for one year.

The fiscal year ended at midnight Monday and the White House Budget Office directed non-essential functions of the federal government to shut down. Essential functions, such as national security and public safety, will continue to operate.

On Monday night, President Obama signed into law the bill passed by the House early Sunday morning and the Senate Monday afternoon that will continue funding for military personnel in the event of a government shut down.

The House voted early Sunday morning to pass two amendments to the continuing resolution and an additional bill that would continue to pay for military personnel in the event of a government shut down. The separate military pay bill passed 423-0.

On Friday, the Senate voted, 54-44, along party lines to approve the continuing resolution, a bill to fund the federal government past September 30th, the end of the fiscal year, after stripping out a provision that would defund the Affordable Care Act and moving the next deadline for a budget from Dec. 15 to Nov. 15.

Starting last Tuesday afternoon, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) spoke for more than 21 hours about his opposition to the ACA and why he wants to block the continuing resolution. In this latest series of votes, he voted against ending debate, and against the amended bill.

Someone who worked and made all the sacrifices to be admitted to Harvard was denied so some communist supposedly named Obama with connections high in the Communist Party USA could get another fraudulent line in their fraudulent resume.

and the point is?
you just sign up through the fed site. though waiting a few days is an idea. at the moment the site is so busy that wait times are counted in hours.
so just think of all the people who are signing up today. everyone of them, if not already, converted to democrats.
point is there is exemptions in place of certian people who do not have to partipate in Obamacare equally and that is the problem.

The president is going to talk to the American people soon.

Must have finished his golf game early today. Or it will be telecast on the 9th hole.

We'll see.

But one thing's for sure. He'll repeat he "absolutely will not negotiate" and yell "FORE!"

It takes about $107.00 of 2012 dollars to buy what $100 did in 2008.

And that explains why my grocery bill was about 200 dollars every month before Obama took office, and over 400 dollars every month today.
No change in number of people. No change in location. No change in stores. No change in eating habits.
So, what changed? My cost has doubled, and we don't any more or less than we did 4 years ago.

It's not really worth discussing beyond the E-verify angle and that states have pumped up the fees for the photo ID card itself as well as pertinent documentation, certified birth certificates, marriage licenses etc etc.
Bottom line is that the Republicans have to fk with voting rights to remain relevant and even brag about it__case closed.
