The Obama administration insists nobody will lose coverage as a result of cancellation notices going out to millions of people. At least 3.5 million Americans have been issued cancellations, but the exact number is unclear. Associated Press checks find that data is unavailable in a half the states.
Speaking in Boston's historic Faneuil Hall this past week, Obama said the problem is limited to fewer than 5 percent of Americans "who've got cut-rate plans that don't offer real financial protection in the event of a serious illness or an accident."
But in a country of more than 300 million, 5 percent is a big number about 15 million people.

This article claims those numbers projected (long-term} to be 16 to 17 million.

Media Finally Wakes Up and Notices That If You Like Your Plan, You Probably Cant Keep It

DemoKKKrat Congressman on welfare...

During a House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing on Obamacare on Wednesday, Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Pa.) told Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius that he thinks Obamacare will save him money by subsidizing an insurance policy for his 33-year-old son.

Under Obamacare, Americans making less than 400 percent of the poverty level can get their health insurance subsidized by the taxpayers if they buy a government-approved plan in the government-run exchange.

Taxpayers pay Doyle an annual salary of $174,000 for serving in Congress.

However, Doyle told Sebelius he "thinks" his wife is now paying his "self-employed" 33-year-old son's health insurance premium, and after pushing his son to look into what was available on the government exchange discovered that he could get a plan for half the price.

One of my four kids is self-employed. Hes 33 years old. Hes paying about $140 a month right now for a Blue Cross plan. Hes eligible for a subsidy. We browse that site. Hes going to be able to get coverage for about half of what hes paying right now, and thats good news for us, because I think my wife is paying his premium, so I think were going to save the money, Doyle said.

Guess 15 million isn't that big a deal. Of course, by all indications, that number will continue to grow.

I could go on like this forever. Because the lies do too.

But...on a more serious note...wonder why the survivors of Benghazi have been kept under lock and key? Not one has surfaced, and it's been a year since the election.

"Murray finds that the West outshines all other areas in accomplishment. For example, he writes: "Whether measured in people or events, 97 percent of accomplishment in the scientific inventories occurred in Europe and North America" (p. 252). Further, he attributes the bulk of European accomplishment to figures born and raised in the "European core" area. And by his figures, 98 percent of significant figures were male."

Those are admirable beliefs....

But can you speak for all the people who CLAIM to need help?

Do they all need help or are some just loafers?

My educational background is in ethics and the social sciences.
And I can tell you that people cheat. And it does not matter what socio-economic group they are in.

The better angels of our nature nudge us to ignore the cheaters...
To press on...

But for how long RealDave? I have a family too...
I am not going to sacrifice my family just to allow someone to cheat...will you?

Changes to Social Security are on the horizon because the massive retirement and disability program is projected to run dry in 2033. At that point, Social Security would only collect enough taxes to pay about three-fourths of benefits. If Congress doesn't act, benefits automatically would be cut by about 25 percent.

http://news.msn.com/us/poll-older-americans-n...

Now let's see...who keeps saying Social Security is a great government-run program and doesn't need reform? And accused their opposition of wanting to kill grandma for suggesting it?

And who keeps saying it must be reformed to be sustained?

Why do most liberals willfully ignore the obvious?
Yeah
