Maybe because Obama promised to transform America. How's that working out for the US domestically or internationally?

The really amazing part of that is he found time for at least 146 rounds of golf while never stopping campaigning since inaugurated in 2009. How did he find time to sleep?(Oh yes, while our Ambassador was being raped and murdered in Benghazi, Obammy slept like a baby).

GOP's hypocrisy on Obamacare

Today, implementation has arrived, and if it's not a train wreck, then it's certainly close. The administration is still under fire because people cannot get the insurance they want through the exchanges. But while I will continue to point out the problems with implementation and fault the administration for mistakes they've made, how does one ignore the apparent hypocrisy from many politicians who are now "outraged" about the very problems they've helped to create.

Republicans refused to appropriate money needed to implement Obamacare. When Sebelius tried to shift money from other areas to help do what needed to be done, she was attacked by Senate Republicans. At every step, Republicans fought measures to get money to put towards implementation.

Is it really a surprise then that implementation hasn't gone smoothly?

Federal legislators aren't the only ones to blame. Let's remember that original versions of the bill called for one big national exchange. This would have been much easier to implement. But conservatives declared that insurance should be left to the states and kept out of the hands of the federal government. So as a compromise (yes, those did occur), exchanges were made state-based instead of national.

As a precaution, the law stipulated that if states failed to do their duty and enact exchanges, the federal government would step in and pick up the slack. This was to prevent obstructionism from killing the law. Surprisingly, it was many of the same conservative states that demanded local control that refused to implement state-based exchanges, leaving the federal government to do it for them.

That made implementation much harder.

There have been books, webinars and meetings explaining how to sabotage the implementation of Obamacare. There have been campaigns trying to persuade young adults not to use the exchanges. It is, therefore, somewhat ironic that many of the same people who have been part of all of this obstructionism seem so "upset" by the fact that people can't easily use the exchanges.

For goodness sake, the government was shut down just a few weeks ago because some of the same people who are now bemoaning poorly functioning websites were determined to see that not one dime went to Obamacare.

Lest you think I'm defending this month's rollout, I encourage you to review my last article here. I still maintain that the administration has had a failure in management in overseeing and reporting on progress towards October 1. But I'm also sympathetic that they've had a hard job to do. I would like to see this go better. I'd like to see millions more get insurance. I'd like to see the law of the land function as well as it can, and if it doesn't, I'd like to see Congress continue to amend it to make it work better. I'd like a better health care system.

What I cannot ignore, however, are the many people who actively worked to see implementation fail now get the vapors over its poor start. The truth is, they got what they wanted. A victory lap is somewhat warranted, not concern-trolling.

If, on the other hand, their concern is real, then I'm sure the administration would welcome their help in making things right.

That 14-year-old needed the seat of his pants warmed up a long time ago.
But the PC police won't hear of it.
Children learning right from wrong is a no-no. Might hurt their feelings or make their parents mad. These parents need their seats warmed up too but it's too late for them, not their child.
The one thing Hillary and I do agree on - it does take a village. But not a village of idiots.
And how do you know he wasn't subject to corporal punishment Carol? I'd be willing to bet that he was. Corporal punishment doesn't teach right from wrong, it teaches that violence is an acceptable way of dealing with problems.
There's been numerous studies that have shown that children who've been exposed to corporal punishment become violent themselves as adolescents and adults. This from the American Psychoanalytic Association;
Physical punishment is a serious public health problem in the United States, and it profoundly affects the mental health of children and the society in which we live. Studies show that approximately 65% of adults in the United States approve of physical punishment and about 50% of families use physical punishment to discipline children. Yet, research shows that physical punishment is associated with increases in delinquency, antisocial behavior, and aggression in children, and decreases in the quality of the parent-child relationship, children's mental health, and children's capacity to internalize socially acceptable behavior. Adults who have been subjected to physical punishment as children are more likely to abuse their own child or spouse and to manifest criminal behavior (Gershoff 2008).
Spanking is a euphemism for hitting. One is not permitted to hit one's spouse or a stranger; such actions are defined as the crime of assault. Nor should one be permitted to hit a small and more vulnerable child. Hitting a child elicits precisely the feelings one does not want to generate in a child: distress, anger, fear, shame, and disgust. Studies show that children who are hit identify with the aggressor and are more likely to become hitters themselves, that is, bullies and future abusers of their own children and partners. They tend to learn to use violent behavior as a way to deal with stress and interpersonal disputes
Thank goodness you're no longer in the classroom Carol (if you ever were) no child should be entrusted to anyone as ignorant as you.

The White House knew all along: Most Americans with individual health insurance plans WILL get cancellation notices under Obamacare
Despite President Obama's frequent promise that 'if you like your health care plan, you can keep it,' millions won't have that choice because of his administration's rules. mmmmm mmmmmmm MMMMMMMM MENDACITY LIES HYPOCRACY CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF lololololololhahahahahahahahah aha

NBC cited an estimate “buried in Obamacare regulations from July 2010&#8243; that said 40 to 67 percent of customers will not be able to keep their policy.”

“That means the administration knew that more than 40 to 67 percent of those in the individual market would not be able to keep their plans, even if they liked them,” the report said.

The result of the Obama administration’s work is hitting Americans like an earthquake. NBC reported that George Schwab, 62, of North Carolina, had a Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance plan for $228 monthly.

Obamacare, however, canceled it, with a “comparable” plan being priced at $1,208 a month with a $5,500 deductible.

“It’s unaffordable,” he said.
