Barack Obama, our next President

Of course you have no need to deflect. Everything goes in one ear and out the other. You swallow and excrete in one fell swoop.
Your attempts at corralling me into one political camp or the other is about as juvenile and primal as hooting insults at the opposition during a football game.
you try mastering 18 tracks into 2 while presenting facts to baggers, and try to Skype the artist, who's in London(not the one in KY) btw, all at the same time and see if your semi-coherent attempts at deflecting every fact that comes your way gets any easier.

and your poor attempts at fact deflecting tells me you're a FOXbag.

pigeonhole indeed.

Wingnut Media’s Lame Attempt To Prove ObamaCare Is A Failure, Proves It’s A Success

The Daily Caller (TheDC), a website run by Fox News supplicant Tucker Carlson, has published what they laughably refer to as an “investigation” into “the numbers on the hilariously sad failure of Obamacare.” Unfortunately for them, what ends up being hilariously sad is their inept attempt to malign a program that is showing objective signs of success and is gaining in popularity.

TheDC based their article on reports of the Obama administration’s estimates that about half a million people would enroll in the ObamaCare exchanges in the first month. However, the launch of the online component of the program was something less than optimal, to put it mildly. As a result, enrollment was severely hampered.

It is was on this basis that TheDC concluded that ObamaCare has failed. But their own numbers tell a different story. TheDC cites an analysis by Millward Brown Digital, a private marketing firm, who estimate that 36,000 people enrolled in a new health care plan on the federal exchange in the first week. And according to an article in The Atlantic, an additional 115,000 enrolled via the the state exchanges. That’s about 150,000 enrollees in the first week, despite the software glitches. Extrapolate that number out for 50 more weeks, or one full year, and you get 7.5 million. The Department of Health and Human Services estimated that they would enroll seven million people the first year. Therefore, these numbers suggest that they will exceed their estimates.

....In another example of the right-wing media’s dishonesty, last Friday Fox News aired an episode of Sean Hannity’s program that included three couples who, according to Hannity, were “feeling the pain of Obamacare and the healthcare overhaul train wreck.” However, when an aide to the former governor of Montana contacted these alleged victims, what he discovered was that not a single one of them had even bothered to look at the insurance exchange to ascertain whether or not they would be helped or harmed. In every case, as it turns out, they would have paid thousands less annually in premiums. They were simply blindly opposed to ObamaCare without any direct knowledge of it, and that’s certainly why Hannity chose them to appear on his show. This is typical of the dimwitted and deceitful brand of journalism practiced by conservative media in general, and by Fox News and TheDC in particular.

"Premiums for young healthy people will jump in 45 states under Obamacare"

Isn't that the "pool" Obamacare depends on for its survival? The young and healthy?

The Wall Street Journal warns that if young buyers don't flock to the healthcare market, prices across the U.S. could spike.

Seems a bit tentative to me - relying on this "pool" of the young and healthy paying more. Maybe I'm missing something.

Dept of Homeland Security where are you?

"The Secure Fence Act of 2006 was enacted October 26, 2006 and is a part of President George W. Bush’s effort on immigration reform which was intended to allow the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to gain operational control over the entire United States-Mexico border and maritime border."

Seems the Republicans have a lot more power than we thought after this last fiasco when it comes to Democrats needing a scapegoat.

FACT: "Fewer than one in four Americans have enough money in their savings account to cover at least six months of expenses, enough to help cushion the blow of a job loss, medical emergency or some other unexpected event, according to the survey of 1,000 adults. Meanwhile, 50% of those surveyed have less than a three-month cushion and 27% had no savings at all."
So, using your "logic" Republicans are just as likely to be "non functioning members of society" as Democrats. In fact, I would say more likely since they just love to buy things they can't afford.

People have less money now because of Obama's new taxes.

Obamacare is not going to lessen the burden for health insurance for many working class people.

There was a much more practical and common sense approach.

I'd waited for decades for health care reform. This isn't what I waited for.

On obamacare...
This is from the WaPo...

"I think it is a mixed bag. If you are old, sick, or poor you will probably pay less. If you are young and healthy, you will likely pay more. It is designed to be that way.

I checked some pricing, and for my wife and I to buy coverage with a $1500 deductible in 2013, the rate would be just under $600 a month. In 2014, a similar policy would be just over $1000. We don't qualify for subsidies, so we would be a loser.

On the other hand, my mom and her husband are in their early 60's and don't qualify for Medicare yet. Their insurance will go down a bit"

Why would someone be so cavalier about their insurance going up so much?

$4000 Dollar increase...that's a new car payment...

Especially liked "the Mother Ship hiding behind the Moon" part. No lie is too big for the liberal media when it comes to protecting this president. They would spin that so fast liberals would be looking up at the sky in awe every night.
I no longer take Liberal Media roundtable discussions seriously as I once naively did many, many moons ago. Today, I sit and watch smarmy propagandists pontificating and condescending toward the unwashed masses of uneducated Americans who couldn't find their way home each night if not for the NY Times and Mizz Madcow.

They ooze with "You are stupid and so you need us".
