Medicaid and Free Cheese enrollment spike threatens entire obamaKare house of cards

CBS News has confirmed that in Washington, of the more than 35,000 people newly enrolled, 87 percent signed up for Medicaid. In Kentucky, out of 26,000 new enrollments, 82 percent are in Medicaid. And in New York, of 37,000 enrollments, Medicaid accounts for 64 percent. And there are similar stories across the country in nearly half of the states that run their own exchanges.

But Gail Wilensky, a former Medicaid director, said the numbers are causing concern in the insurance industry, which needs healthy adults to buy private insurance in large numbers for the system to work.

The Obama administration says they expected these high enrollment numbers in Medicaid because the law expands the number of low-income people who can get Medicaid, CBS News Jan Crawford reported on CBS This Morning. Supporters say this shows demand. But industry sources say that if we do not see some real turnaround soon, there could be big problems for the entire system.

Talk about your basic run-of-the-mill irony...

Senate Democrats have written a letter to HHS requesting Obamacare be delayed.

Didn't they just vote against that not two weeks ago?

Wait...Republicans asked it be delayed then.

Nevermind.

A tourist walked into a Chinese curio shop in San Francisco. While looking around at the exotic merchandise, he noticed a very lifelike, life-sized, bronze statue of a rat. It had no price tag, but was so incredibly striking the tourist decided he must have it. He took it to the old shop owner and asked, "How much for the bronze rat?"
"Ahhh, you have chosen wisely! It is $12 for the rat,$100 for the story," said the old Chinaman.
The tourist quickly pulled out twelve dollars. "I'll just take the rat, you can keep the story".
As he walked down the street carrying his bronze rat, the tourist noticed that a few real rats had crawled out of the alleys and sewers and had begun following him own the street. This was a bit disconcerting so he began walking faster. A couple blocks later he looked behind him and saw to his horror the herd of rats behind him had grown to hundreds, and they began squealing.
Sweating now, the tourist began to trot toward the Bay. Again, after a couple blocks, he looked around only to discover that the rats now numbered in the MILLIONS, and were squealing and coming toward him faster and faster.
Terrified, he ran to the edge of the Bay and threw the bronze rat as far as he could into the Bay. Amazingly, the millions of rats all jumped into the Bay after the bronze rat, and were all drowned.
The man walked back to the curio shop in Chinatown . "Ahhh," said the owner, "You have come back for story?"
"No, sir." said the man, "I came back to see if you have a bronze Democrat."
Hahahahahahahaha

NC GOPer Who Resigned Over Racist Remark Says Party Is 'Gutless'

Asked if the comment was worth making, Yelton said yes, because it made him realize the Republican party has "no guts."

"I'll resign my position as precinct chair gladly, I'll give it up -- the heck with it, I don't want to be part of a group that is that mealy-mouthed and that gutless," he later added.

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/nc-gope...

so what is 'mealy-mouth'?

mealy mouth

Timid and frail of action to the point of being highly irritating. Lacking in action. No back-bone. Passive. Submissive. Perceived as a "sweet" person. A term mostly applied to women (by other women) who will neither engage in straight conversation nor take action.

You're so gullible that it's almost unbelievable. Nothing, and I mean nothing is real about Hannity; everything he does is contrived; that was a set up. He's such a loser and you are too for buying into his crap.
And, if even if it were remotely possible that it was true; talking live on the radio is stealing time from her employer and grounds for firing. Same as using the computer for personal use and being on your cell phone.
Tell that to the woman who is being given a year's salary out of his own pocket because he felt so badly she was fired simply for answering his questions about Obamacare on air. Or that his listeners lined up to offer her another job.

Don't think she would agree with you. In fact, she seemed a bit peeved her "employers" were so contrived.

US Army!!!

"US Army spent $2.7 billion on a battlefield computer that doesn’t work"

How bad is this software?

"memo sent by Major General Michael Flynn, the Army’s top intelligence officer stationed in Afghanistan. In the memo [PDF], Flynn damns the apparent ineffectiveness of DCGS-A:“Analysts cannot provide their commanders a full understanding of the operational environment. Without the full understanding of the enemy and human terrain, our operations are not as successful as they could be. This shortfall translates into operational opportunities missed and lives lost.”

OBAMA AND HIS WHITE SUPPORTERS DONT CARE ABOUT THE TRUTH OR BLACK PEOPLE The ObamaCare hotline operator who spoke with CNN host Sean Hannity about the problem plagued ObamaCare website was fired from her job.

In response to the negative press about problems accessing his Healthcare.gov website, President Obama gave out a toll-free number to buy health insurance.

Hannity called the 800 number and spoke with operator Earline Davis during his live radio show on Monday. Ms. Davis was very helpful and answered all of Hannity’s probing questions. She even read the script that she and other operators were told to tell callers.

When Hannity asked Davis what callers were saying about the website, Davis said the callers didn’t like the website.
