Hell that's nothing. 86% of Americans thought Saddam had WMDs right before Bush went in. How'd that work out for America?

Here's the steps one by one from the "Health Insurance Marketplace":
(1) create an account
(2) Apply. enter information about you and your family, including your income, household size, any insurance you currently have and more.)
(3)Next you’ll see all the plans and programs you’re eligible for and compare them side-by-side. You’ll also find out if you can get lower costs on monthly premiums and out-of-pocket costs.
(4) Choose a plan that meets your needs and enroll!

apply before you can see the plans. Sounds like the Pelosi model to me.

http://www.pewresearch.org/2013/09/03/obama-s...
the poll associated with the article was done in 2013.
You are right I didn't click on the link and based my comment on the phrase "based on a poll done a year ago" in your article.

I knew the figures had been sliding and as I stated these are before more recent developments.

The most disturbing is the middle East figures. We have loss the moderates there and the radicals will never support us.

If you don't know how to copy and paste a source or the link to the video, it's okay. But just don't expect me to take your word for something of which I didn't even understand the point or the context.

I'm actually beginning to feel sorry for John Boehner. He's learning you can't reason with crazy people.
we finally agree on something

"House Speaker John Boehner told fellow Republicans today that President Barack Obama rejected his latest fiscal offer, said Representative Raul Labrador, an Idaho Republican"

"Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) rejected the emerging House plan in a Senate floor speech about 90 minutes after reports first emerged about the new proposal being floated by Speaker John A. Boehner's leadership team"

Pretty sure people who know me would say I'm generally a pleasant woman to meet.

But I can also use my words like fists when it comes to fighting an ideology that threatens to take away my freedom.

but i can assure you stories about right wing 'friends' are not.
Does anecdotal commentary coming from a variety of sources count?

It seems to be coming a prevalent complaint that premiums and/or deductibles have been increased at alarming rates including from family and friends who recently received their new premium rates.

This is not a surprise and was predicted to be the result of expanding health coverage.

covering adult slacker children and chronically ill people is expensive, so deductibles and copays are rising to keep premiums within reason...

just one person with a pre-existing condition can rack up bills larger than hundreds of healthy people...

I agree with this. There were many issues about Obama that the Republicans considered too delicate, such as Obama being just a figurehead and not having anything to do with government, Obama joining Al Qaeda, Obama sabotaging the Armed Forces and the war in Afghanistan, Obama being a complete fraud and everything being promoted about Obama being a lie, and Obama being a pathological liar, and Obama being indoctrinated his entire life with Marxist communism, and on, and on, and on.
It's a difficult thing for an American to do, to announce to the world that Americans are so stupid and incompetent, they actually elected such an anti-American treasonous fraud to begin with, and we actually know we sent this fraud out into the world to represent us.
On the plus side he usually gets punked by his betters, like Putin.
