NO. The company figured that "match" money into their employee cost. Not into the employee pay.

"useless" is well useless. 7 million he claims will be signed up for nobamakare, barely 2% of the population. I may be mistaken but did not the press relay the information 48 million would be on board with nobamakare? They have already spent 634 million on a failed computer system, plus millions more spent on facilitators.

Administrative costs like that would bankrupt any insurance company, but the taxpayers have deep pockets....

Call that number and tell them what you think about that.
In fact, call the White House and tell Obama what you think about it. I'm hoping you're really upset about the Democrats and Obama being that arrogant.

There was no government shut down. This was just another hoax contrived by the Democrats.
We don't need any more than 87 percent of the government. We should adopt a budget right now that fixes the size of this government for the next fiscal year at this 87 percent of Obama's government.
Then, next year, we cut more. We do this until we get a sane government again.
but they keep polling the SHUTDOWN and the GOP is getting HAMMERED.

the email address of every polling organization in the country shouldn't be that hard to find. have at it. write up one of those cry baby right wing chain emails and that should do the trick.

John Boehner's New Plan: Pretend Ted Cruz Never Happened

Assuming all goes well with the Republicans' meeting at the White House on Thursday, Politico reports that Speaker John Boehner may be amenable to reopening the government during budget talks. Meaning, one, that Obama wins this round and, two, that the budget conversation has essentially been reset to mid-September, before Sen. Ted Cruz's de facto coup.

.... Cruz's ascension to a position of leadership in the party has, in the tradition of past coups, been a failure. Despite Cruz's odd self-funded poll that he released on Wednesday, obliquely arguing that he was right all along, this entire thing has been a debacle for Cruz with everyone but the conservative base he hopes come to the polls in 2016.(And, apparently, for Cruz's partner-in-dissent, Utah Sen. Mike Lee.) According to Gallup, Cruz's popularity has undergone a 16-point swing to the negative since June.

So. We dust off our hands, turn back the clock (once it starts working again), and try this whole thing again. From the start of the shutdown there was speculation that Boehner just needed to let his right-wing members vent. Instead, they've been sitting around for ten days rapidly losing blood. When it comes to negotiations with the president, Boehner's position isn't too much worse than it was a month ago. But his ability to tell the far-right to shut up has improved enormously.

The Stock Market seems pleased that Obama and the Reps negotiated an extension of the debt ceiling until November. Now will Reid continue to be a obstacle to it?

NOTE: this is a separation issue from the shut down and this will not re-open the government

well, seeing as how Ted is no longer a failure virgin, a few more fails shouldn't bother him too much. he might even start to like it in a kinky sort of GOP way.
