Your puppetmaster says you need links, Ray. Listen to her.
Yeah is Ray's puppet master? Don't confuse anyone here with Yeah's idiocy of demanding links for opinions, common knowledge, irrelevant things (like how a news aggregate works), and other things that can be easily Googled. I am making fun of Yeah's absurdity.

But, you know that. You don't like what you thought was a brilliant troll tactic exposed for its' idiocy?

CHRISTIANE AMANPOUR, HOST: But what is going to happen? I mean, are you clear on where a compromise is going to be? It's got to be discussed before the end of the year, no?
PAUL KRUGMAN: No. Some years down the pike, we're going to get the real solution, which is going to be a combination of death panels and sales taxes. It's going to be that we're actually going to take Medicare under control, and we're going to have to get some additional revenue, probably from a VAT.
++++++++++
So, you're calling Krugman a liar?
Paul Krugman - Ivy educated liberal, Nobel Memorial winner in economics - doesn't know what he's talking about?
Yes. Paul Krugman may know economics but it is obvious that he doesn't know anything about the Affordable Care Act. There are no death panels.

Want to talk process?
The Continuing Resolution has ZERO to do with Obamacare, Obamacare is already funded so it has NOTHING to do with Obamacare. It is not being held up by democratic process because the process is to put it to a vote in the House but Boehner WON'T take it to the floor.
Hate having to always school you on stuff you should have learned in HS.
You must have been really impressed with the clowns in LA questioned on the street by reporters. Turns out that plenty of people hate Obamacare, but love the Affordable Care Act.

Don't believe everything Rush Limbaugh oer Fox News tells you.
According to Bloomberg, 28,699 additional people signed up for California's health exchange and New York enrolled a further 40,000
Approximately 51,000 people completed Obamacare applications during healthcare.gov ’s first week online, according to an exclusive report from The Daily Mail.
The Number of People Who Have Reportedly Signed Up for Obamacare Is Embarrassingly Low

A woman looks at the HealthCare. gov insurance exchange internet site October 1, 2013 in Washington, DC. US President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare as it is commonly called, passed in March 2010, went into effect Tuesday at 8am EST (Getty Images)

This may signal a serious problem.

The Congressional Budget Office said it needs at least 7 million enrollees during the open enrollment period, which is slated to last six months, to keep the massive new health care law financially stable.

At this rate, and if the 51,000 figure is accurate, the total number of Americans who will have signed up by the end of the enrollment period will be roughly 1.32 million (this includes the state-run exchanges).

“The administration’s goal is 7 million people in the first year,” Americans for Tax Reform president Grover Norquist told MailOnline.“We are not on track for anything like 7 million. New Coke was retired for being a smaller disappointment.”

Several Obama administration officials, including Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, have claimed that they do not have access to the official enrollment figures.

“There was no good reason to hide these number,” Norquist said, referring to the White House’s refusal to comment on the official figures.“This is not keeping a secret from the Russians or the Syrians.… Why lie about this, for crying out loud?”

The Daily Mail’s anonymous sources, who process data for the HHS, confirmed independently of each other that just 6,200 people applied for Obamacare on Oct. 1, the day healthcare.gov went live.

“These numbers reflect what we all know: Obamacare is a disaster,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) told MailOnline.“It is time for the president to admit Obamacare is not working and that the American people deserve better.”

Health and Human Services, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and Enroll America — the group charged with “navigating” Americans through the signup process — declined to comment on the official enrollment figures.

“[I]f the numbers are accurate,” said Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas), who chairs the House Ways and Means Health Subcommittee, they show “that relatively few people have navigated the challenges of the first step of the process – roughly the population of a small town in my district.”

“The White House and HHS have continually claimed they did not have these figures,” Brady told MailOnline.“If they do, they have misled the Congress and the American people.”

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said the low numbers are indicative of a much bigger problem.

“Far more people have been unable to complete their applications because of crashing websites or impossible wait times than have successfully enrolled,” Issa said.“[T]he clock is ticking and the window for open enrollment gets smaller every day.”

Refusing to post links to back up your claims
10/11/2013 - Numbers from the latest Gallup poll reveal Americans’ confidence in the two-party dominated system has hit an all-time low, with only 18 percent saying they’re satisfied with the way the nation is being run.

“This is the lowest government satisfaction rating in Gallup’s history of asking the question dating back to 1971,” admitted the polling agency.

Nuculur Blowhard is in the 18%.
