'OBAMACARE: FEWER OPTIONS FOR MANY
Oct 29, 2013
(CNN)-- Some of Thomas Harte's New Hampshire neighbors are frustrated by the Affordable Care Act's insurance marketplaces but not for the reasons you might expect.
Harte is an insurance broker. He still has his share of frustrations with the marketplace websites, but the growing number of complaints he hears come from clients and fellow brokers who have seen the policies these marketplaces offer.
Nationally the marketplaces offer tens of thousands of different policies with a wide variety of coverage, but Harte has noticed many have one thing in common: THEY COVER A NARROW NETWORK OF DOCTORS AND HOSPITALS.
CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?
Obamacare sign-up more than a phone call away
That narrower network comes as particularly bad news for the residents of Concord, New Hampshire.
Concord's one hospital won't accept any policies offered by the marketplaces. To see a doctor, specialist or primary care provider affiliated with the hospital, patients on these Obamacare plans will have to pay out of their own pocket. The closest in-network hospital is in Manchester.
"Can you imagine having to go 25 miles away to Manchester to get access to a health care provider that is covered by your insurance?" Harte asked. "Right now, Concord is one big black hole of health care for people buying these plans."
HealthCaregov: What works, what doesn't
And it's not just Concord. Nationally, consumers are learning a number of WELL-KNOWN HOSPITALS WON'T ACCEPT INSURANCE OFFERED THROUGH THE MARKETPLACES.
CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?
In New York, NYU will accept only a minority of the plans.
In Los Angeles, UCLA medical centers will accept a couple.
In Atlanta, Emory has limited the number of plans it will take. Academic medical centers are often pricier because they tackle the more complex cases.
Obamacare is expected to increase patient demand for medical services. Combine that with a worsening shortage of doctors, and next year you may have to wait a little longer to get a doctor's appointment. And the crowded emergency room may become even more so.
CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW? IF A TREE FELL IN A FOREST AND NO ONE WAS THERE TO HEAR, WOULD OBAMA STILL BE A LIAR?

All it will take is one unvetted affirmative action hire ObammyCare Navigator to sell your personal information.
Unvetted, hmmm where have I heard that term used before?
Oh yeah, in 2008.
And they were right.

Note to Homer:
Saying is not the same as doing.(I know that's a very difficult concept for you to grasp.)
Tell us when health care costs are going to go down. When has the cost of anything controlled by the government every gone down?
And, give us a break. We don't even have a space program anymore. All we have is more hot air from a pathological liar of a president. That doesn't mean that we're not wasting money on something we're being told is a space program... like the money we spent on the ObamaKare website for someone to write the program, and they took our money and stole the program instead.
The only way for the cost of health care to go down with the government in control is for there to just not be anymore money to pay for it, something the Democrats are very close to achieving now. By the time Obama leaves office, what will the debt be?
How big is the part of the economy that pays for everything?
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

Another Obama worshipper chooses to display its vulgar lowlife ghetto mouth on the forum...no wonder vagrants, such as you, do not realize how gross you are and how you will probably forever remain so.
#1018084 Nov 4, 2013
Damn, even a little faerie like Patrick figured out the plan...
#1018085 Nov 4, 2013
Lol, not likely that Flacko will ever be right. Unleaded reg at WaWa , Sunoco, RaceTrac and else where in this area $3.07.9 while some areas are already seeing under $3.00.
Markets remain positive in spite of all the political shenanigans__beer prices holding steady. It's all roses!!!
As a plus it's national sandwich day.
#1018086 Nov 4, 2013
It would also be easy to write a program to have phone bots flooding the lines with calls to tie up the phone system.
Rightwingers are pure evil.
If you ever meet one face to face or happen to befriend one out of pity, watch your back, as they will stab you in the back or gut you where you lay if there is any money in it for them.

Look who the LIAR is again: Just consider this another example of Barack Obama misspeaking. In the middle of last month’s Healthcare.gov rollout, Obama insisted that Americans had other ways of signing up for the totally awesome product in his Rose Garden pep rally. Americans soon discovered otherwise, though, as operators standing by actually couldn’t enroll them in plans, which consumers couldn’t browse and had no way of calculating their subsidies without the website.
ABC News reports today that the White House knew that well before Barack Obama’s Rose Garden speech.
I think they should call this whole debacle O'bamaliarcare. That makes more sense.

The problem is, we paid Obama to write the software, and he stole our money and stole the software we paid him to write. Then, when he tried to hide the evidence he stole the software, he set off all the software bombs every company programs into their software to protect themselves from people like Obama who will steal it.
"If Obama wins the election, we will see a horde of thieves descend upon Washington that will exceed any previous administration in the history of the United States." - Me, the day after Super Tuesday 2008.
It's unarguable Obama stole the software from SpryMedia for the ObamaKare site. And, it's unarguable they tried to destroy the evidence proving they stole the software.
I've got a question. How did programmers who were so ignorant they didn't even know software developers design their programs to protect themselves against thieves like Obama even get hired to write the software they stole?
That would take a conspiracy, dumbass.

Bill Cosby delivered the keynote address at this weekend’s Tuskegee University Homecoming and Charter Day Convocation, using James Brown’s hit song “Get Up” as a rallying cry for his audience. And according to a press release sent our way this morning, he also encouraged the audience to steer clear of being the “perpetual victim who blames a ‘mythical white man’ for their inaction.”
He said black American culture is under attack by people who wish to make money off of it. He said the culture has become riddled with negative images and activities, which are in opposition to its foundation of hard work, pride and determination. He also encouraged having respect for black women and rejecting obscenity.

The problem is Obama stole the software, and everyone involved was so ignorant they didn't even know software developers design their software to protect themselves from thieves like Obama.
That's the problem. That's the only problem. If Obama didn't steal the money we paid him to write the software, and then steal the software, and then delete the references to the copyright, everything would work fine, just like the thousands of other websites using that same goddam software... only, they didn't steal it.

The right wing conspiracy was to hire the Occupy Wallstreeters to Occupy the phone lines since they are not productive, have the time and were stabbing and stealing from each other in the parks last year. Once they figure out how to sexually assault each other by phone, they'll be more committed.
#1018093 Nov 4, 2013
Moochelle has more personal assistants than people have signed up for ObammyCare. Maybe if Moochelle gave the pink slip to 200 of her "staff" it would pay for ObammyCare for some.

The website should have been able to handle phone bots with over 300 million possibly trying to sign up the first week.
Calling Republicans pure evil is a bit of stretch, Homer. Especially when Republicans anticipated this was going to happen from the beginning and were just waiting for it to happen.
This administration needed no help from anyone to screw up this debacle from its inception. And it hasn't even started yet.
Hope you can handle it.
