the sole purpose of ObamaKKKare is wealth redistribution...hence lawyers like Jennifer Harris must be forced at the point of a gun to subsidize the coverage of others...no more, no less...
The enforcement mechanism is a joke , millions of young will tell Oblama to get bent. The older , smarter ones will use every resource possible to avoid paying more than they feel is fair. After all, Oblama, Reid and Pelosi aren't paying squat.

Either this president doesn't want to know anything or he surrounds himself with incompetent people who don't know anything and don't want him to know anything.

But he told us we would know him by who he surrounded himself by. So, either way, it boils down to incompetence.

For those who don't qualify for subsidies, it comes from learning how to budget. If a single person making $50,000 a year can't afford $200 a month for health insurance, that person has a serious problem. What's more important (1) a $200 satellite TV bill or (2) health insurance. That is a question people may have to ask themselves. They are free to choose #1. No one is holding a gun to their head.

You are counting on millions of Humans having personal ethics that will not allow them to cheat.

I wouldn't have a problem with it. I have always thought it should be mandatory that everyone carry at least $1 million in liability insurance. It's about time someone proposed legislation to address that problem. I think I'll write my congresswoman.

He also said that his would be the most transparent administration in American history.

So far, he's been right. When you look at this wholly blameless administration, it says nothing, see nothing, hears nothing. It IS nothing.

As clear as glass. As clear as hot air.

The only thing we can see in the transparent administration is the huge placard hanging on the Oval Office Window that says "It's Bush's Fault".

First Lady Michelle Obama’s Princeton classmate is a top executive at the companythat earned the no-bid contract to build the failed Obamacare website.

Toni Townes-Whitley, Princeton class of ’85, is senior vice president at CGI Federal, which earned the no-bid contract to build the $678 million Obamacare enrollment website at Healthcare.gov . CGI Federal is the U.S. arm of a Canadian company.

Townes-Whitley and her Princeton classmate Michelle Obama are both members of the Association of Black Princeton Alumni.

Toni Townes ’85 is a onetime policy analyst with the General Accounting Office and previously served in the Peace Corps in Gabon, West Africa. Her decision to return to work, as an African-American woman, after six years of raising kids was applauded by a Princeton alumni publication in 1998

Residents of Nordic nations sometimes express public pride in their model, but their private behavior presents a more complicated
picture. Sometimes this hidden discontent becomes visible. Four of the five Nordic nations now have right-leaning governments. The Swedes elected a conservative coalition government late last year and the Finns made a similar choice earlier this year.

If residents of Nordic nations want faster growth, more prosperity,
and improved competitiveness, they need to reduce the size of the public sector. Excessive government diminishes growth. And although the Nordic countries’ relatively free markets mitigate the damage caused by high taxes and high spending, the burden of
government is hindering economic performance. The Nordic Model is preferable to the Continental or Corporatist Model of nations
such as France and Germany which combines welfare state policies and interventionism. But the Nordic Model does not look very impressive when compared to the United States.

http://www.cato.org/sites/cato.org/files/pubs...

Americans make a big mistake looking to socialist democracies abroad as a model. The United States champions personal freedom and liberties. It is what distinguishes us from other countries who have succumbed to government dependency.

These "models" are going the opposite direction the left are trying so desperately to take us - the same road from which they are turning around.

Don't get me wrong posting Nixon's version of health care reform earlier.

Even though his version depended largely on private sector and employer insurance coverage while still providing government subsidies, it was still similar to Obamacare, and I was more curious why Democrats were against it back then.

Business, GOP Establishment: Tea Party Is Over

A slice of corporate America thinks tea partyers have overstayed their welcome in Washington and should be shown the door in next year's congressional elections.

In what could be a sign of challenges to come across the country, two U.S. House races in Michigan mark a turnabout from several years of widely heralded contests in which right-flank candidates have tried -- sometimes successfully -- to unseat Republican incumbents they perceive as not being conservative enough.

In the Michigan races, longtime Republican businessmen are taking on two House incumbents -- hardline conservative Reps. Justin Amash and Kerry Bentivolio -- in GOP primaries. The 16-day partial government shutdown and the threatened national default are bringing to a head a lot of pent-up frustration over GOP insurgents roughing up the business community's agenda.

Democrats hope to use this rift within the GOP to their advantage. Rep. Steve Israel, D-N.Y., chairman of the House committee to elect Democrats, insists there's been "buyer's remorse with House Republicans who have been willing to put the economy at risk," and that it is opening the political map for Democrats in 2014.

That's what the Democrats would be expected to say. But there's also Defending Main Street, a new GOP-leaning group that's halfway to its goal of raising $8 million. It plans to spend that money on center-right Republicans who face a triumvirate of deep-pocketed conservative groups -- Heritage Action, Club for Growth and Freedom Works -- and their preferred, typically tea party candidates.

In one race, the group plans to help Idaho eight-term Rep. Mike Simpson, who faces a Club for Growth-backed challenger in a GOP primary.

"These conservative groups have had it all their own way," said former Republican Rep. Steve LaTourette of Ohio, head of the new group. "They basically come in with millions of dollars and big-foot a Republican primary and you wind up with these Manchurian candidates who are not interested in governing."

LaTourette said that for the past three years, some "40, 42 House members have effectively denied the Republican Party the power of the majority" that it won in the 2010 election by blocking the GOP agenda.

Defending Main Street is meeting Nov. 5 in New York with wealthy potential donors.

Reality Messing with your Narrative? Invent a More Congenial World

The troubled healthcare.gov website officially cost $93 million (the total of the contract awarded Montreal-based CGI Federal). Media Matters reports that the Sunlight Foundation estimated a cost of $70 million and The Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler wrote,

A conservative figure would be $70 million. A more modest figure would be $125 million to $150 million.” Kessler noted that the cost for the entire health care project beyond the website would be “at least $350 million.

Yet the Republicans are outraged that the website cost $600-odd million and still doesn’t work. Rep. David Camp (R-MI), Chairman of the House Committee on Ways and Means is even holding a hearing to determine why the government spent $600 million on a website that doesn’t work even though the government didn’t spend $600 million on a website.

There won’t be any hearings about the $24 BILLION they spent of taxpayer money to shut down the government, but they are angry about a non-existent $600 million.

What gives? Well, give me a few minutes here to ridicule the Republican Party and I will tell you what I think is going on.

Every fan of fantasy/Sci-Fi or role playing games knows about something called world-building. The author in the former and in the latter, the game master, creates a believable, internally consistent world to which the reader/view/gamer reacts.

Keep in mind, these worlds are created for entertainment purposes.

The Republican Party has engaged in a little world building as well, creating a fantasy world to which the base reacts. This fantasy world includes not only a past, or history, which is fleshed out by dime-a-dozen fable-peddlers like David Barton, but a present, supported by a noise machine led by Fox News, which reports not actual, facts-on-the-ground news but fantasy news about events in this fantasy world.

This world has been created because Republicans don’t like the real world, because the real world, the world of our shared reality, has been found to be uncongenial to right-wing ideological claims.

This alternate world on the other hand justifies every single Republican position. In this alternate world, President Barack Obama is a Kenyan Muslim terrorist sympathizer. This is a problem because in this world,“real Americans” are white Evangelicals who have not shifted gears mentally since the last crusade. Any contrary information that comes from outside this world, or echo-chamber, will of necessity be ignored because it does not fit the established storyline.

We saw an example of how this closed system functions yesterday when Dick Cheney employed the myth of the Obama Apology Tour on ABC’s This Week. This mythic event was also a driving force behind the so-called Benghazi scandals. But there is more at work than simply a rejection of President Obama.

In the Republicans’ fantasy world, they can wave Confederate flags, engage in racist rhetoric and somehow not be racists. They can preach religious freedom while denying it to everyone outside of themselves. They can be pro-life while denying life to mothers and on a wider scale, necessary healthcare to millions. They live in a world where President Obama, even had he been born in Kenya, is not American but Ted Cruz, born in Canada, is.

The problem is, none of us live in their carefully constructed fantasy world.
