We beat you guys to it twice.

The Republicans also proposed a very good alternate solution to Obamacare and health care reform in 2009.

The Democrats didn't want to have anything to do with reforming health care until they could do it their way - total government control.

A one-party system is the goal of the power elite and knowing what's best for all of us.

Do you really think we're still in Kansas?
Of course it was better !

And as long as the IRS wasn't even remotely involved.

Has the left completely lost their minds?

Do they really think Republicans will never be in power and the IRS under a Republican administration will be involved with their personal affairs under this same law?

PINK FLOYD LYRICS

"Wish You Were Here"

So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell, blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

Did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
Did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

Another example of how f*cking dumb you are.
People that don't work & have little or no income can get coverage through medicaid.
Those that work & do not get health insurance benefits are the ones that the ACA would help buy insurance through subsidies.
These are working people contributing to society.
You right whiners want it both ways, you b*tch about raising the minimum wage because you tell us businesses must pay less & less to survive and then call those working at these low wages worthless.
"real dumb"
Some of us do not want the government to "help" us. We have and continue to take care of ourselves. Taking care of your self is an alien thought to you, you are a professional mooch.

Obama blames 'bad apple' insurers for canceled coverage
By Roberta Rampton and David Morgan BOSTON/WASHINGTON (Reuters)- President Barack Obama said on Wednesday that "bad apple" insurance companies, not his signature healthcare law, are to blame for hundreds of thousands of people losing their coverage in the past few weeks. As administration…
Reuters
If insurers don't obey and fall in line with the dictates of the state and what people must have in their insurance policies whether they need it or want it or not, they are demonized like Republicans and the tea party and must be blamed.

That's how the power elite take control of the masses. Demonizing and marginalizing is the first step. Taking control of health care is the next step. Dividing and conquering is the goal.

We're not paying attention.

Then, the next Democratic President, Hillary will tweek it into universal single payer healthcare!!

You're apparently new on here - but please come back on when, or if, you get on the exchange website.

Unless you're one of the lucky ones who actually gets to keep your insurance as promised or are below the poverty line, I'd love to know what your premiums and deductibles are going to be.

Also, I hope you're also not in the ages 21 to 39 young males category. If so, brace yourself.

Americans prefer zombies over the federal government

It’s not exactly a vote of confidence in the powers that be: A sizable number of Americans think the undead would do a better job than the brain dead in Washington, D.C.

Thirty-seven percent (37%) of American Adults believe the federal government would do a better job than zombies running the country today. But the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that most Americans don’t share that view, with just as many (37%) who feel zombies would do a better job running the country and another 26% who can’t decide between the two.

These findings are no surprise, given that 64% of Likely U.S. Voters now view the federal government unfavorably, with 34% who have a Very Unfavorable opinion of it.

Fifty-six percent (56%) of Democrats still pledge allegiance to the federal government, but pluralities of Republicans (45%) and those not affiliated with either major political party (44%) have more confidence in zombies when it comes to running the nation’s affairs.

Only six percent (6%) of all Americans anticipate a zombie apocalypse, so supporters of the federal government can rest easy. Eighty-two percent (82%) do not, but 12% are not sure.

Among those who expect an apocalypse, 74% say they are at least somewhat prepared, with 53% who are Very Prepared.

The survey of 1,000 Adults was conducted on October 29-30, 2013 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

Forty-one percent (41%) of Americans nationwide say they have watched a movie like “World War Z” or a TV show like “The Walking Dead” about a zombie apocalypse.

But only five percent (5%) think the recent boom in zombie-based books, films and TV shows is good for society. Thirty-five percent (35%) see this recent popularity as bad for society, while 51% say it has no impact.

Most adults 65 and older think the zombie craze is bad for society. Most younger adults say it has no impact.

Americans ages 18 to 64 express slightly more confidence in zombies to run things than in the federal government. Seniors have more faith in the government.

Men are more likely than women to think zombies would do a better job running the country. Blacks are more than twice as likely as whites and other minority Americans to believe the government would do a better job than zombies.

Americans who expect a zombie apocalypse express a lot less confidence in the federal government.

Just 25% of voters think the country is heading in the right direction, although that’s up from 13% during the recent federal government shutdown.

Fifty-four percent (54%) want a long-term budget deal that cuts federal spending, but 64% expect another shutdown soon because Congress can’t reach such a deal.

Fifty-six percent (56%) of voters consider the federal government a threat to individual rights rather than a protector of those rights.
