Now more than six weeks into the troubled launch of HealthCare.gov and other state-based exchanges, HHS announced Wednesday that 106,185 people had selected a plan as of Nov. 2.

And just 27,000 did so via the federal exchanges

A sexually suggestive advertising campaign in support of Colorado's health insurance exchange is taking heat, after the latest ad featured a woman boasting about her birth control while wondering how to get her man "between the covers."
The ad, by ProgressNow Colorado and the Colorado Consumer Health Initiative, is being hammered as demeaning to women. It follows a prior ad from the same campaign featuring young men doing keg stands, under the banner "Got Insurance?"
"It's degrading to women, and it says a lot about what they think of America's youth today," Rep. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., said of the latest ad.
The new ad shows a woman holding a packet of birth control pills, while a suave-looking young man stands next to her with his arm around her waist.
The caption reads: "OMG, he's hot! Let's hope he's as easy to get as this birth control. My health insurance covers the pill, which means all I have to worry about is getting him between the covers."
And the libs pretend to respect women. Yeah, ok.

So millions being forced to pay up to five times more for coverage they neither want or need so that others' can have it for free and the projected CBO's numbers of at least 30 million still being uninsured under Obamacare compensates for rationed care and subpar medical treatment with the IRS and big government making all of our health decisions for us?
You think that was the best solution?
Still the ignorant twit aren't you Carol? There's absolutely no evidence that anyone's going to pay up to five times more under the ACA. The exchanges set up under the ACA are fostering competition and actually lowering premiums for many. Prior to the ACA the insurance industry could raise premiums at will, now they have to justify any jumps of over 10%. My wife who recently retired from the school system went to a state exchange and we were able to get a plan that was comparable to her employer provided plan at the same price. Since she's a diabetic and was born with Spina Bifida she might very well have been excluded from getting insurance under the old system. And just how does anyone know that they're not going to need healthcare coverage nitwit? There are diseases that can creep up on you like leukemia as happened to a coworker of mine who was seemingly healthy right up to when they took him out on a stretcher because he couldn't breathe.
Those 30 million that are going to remain uninsured are in states where the Republican governors and legislatures have refused to expand Medicaid STUPID!
There is no rationed care or subpar treatment you damnable liar! The Value-Based Purchasing Program pays hospitals on the quality of care rather than quantity of services reducing preventable and expensive readmissions. The Partnership for Patients is aimed at reducing preventable disease and mortality associated with hospital stays.
And no LIAR, the government and the IRS aren't making our health decisions for us. Before the ACA those decisions were being made by pencil pushers in corporate headquarters based on whether your treatments were going to affect profits.
You're an idiot Carol!

"Commonsense"? OMG! YOU and your idol, Gleen Beck, have NEVER exhibited one iota of common sense.
BEWARE OF REPUBLICANS BEARING 'COMMON SENSE'.
"Common sense: It’s the folksy, kitchen-table, impossible-to-disagree-with rallying cry of the moment for conservative politicians seeking to undo the health-care law, remake Social Security, reduce taxes and slash government spending.....
And what political elites do in tough times is .&#8201;.&#8201;. invoke common sense. As a slogan, a style of address and an ideal, common sense has long played an outsize role in American politics, typically surging in times of exceptional fractiousness. And for all its homespun appeal, it has often been a vehicle for precisely the opposite of what it suggests: subjectivity, partisanship and demagoguery.....Common sense is supposed to represent the one set of ideas that all sensible people can agree upon, a collection of truths transcending politics."
http://articles.washingtonpost.com/2011-04-21...
Common sense....
Obama was indoctrinated in hatred of the United States his entire life. Any enemy of the United States is a friend to Obama. It is no surprise the current administration is completely staffed with communist ideologues and radical extremist muslims, both enemies of the United States.
The ObamaKare SNAFU was very predictable. There has never been a successful Marxist program in history. Communist indoctrination, instructs that there is no need to use people with experience because anything anyone has experience in won't be applicable to a communist system. Therefore, the people we paid to build a website completely failed, while there exists thousands and thousands of working websites that do the exact same thing. They were so incompetent, they couldn't even copy other's homework.
If you look at history, in every case where a country's government was infected with communism, the ruling elite paid themselves lavishly and performed poorly. In the case of ObamaKare, 93 million up front with a 680 million dollar cost overrun, while they stole the software instead of writing it, and it is so AFU the best thing to do is scrap everything and start over again.

The majority didn't think the cuts due to sequestration were enough.
The conservatives tried to get the Democrats to cut spending first before raising the debt ceiling yet again seeing that we're soon approaching a $20 million deficit - astronomically higher than ever before in our history.
But Democrats think there's a money tree growing in the Rose Garden. Either that or they think Americans don't mind bailing out big government's mismanagement of our money already.
Your precious Democrats refused to cut anything in the budget before raising the debt ceiling at this very crucial time. It was they who essentially shut down the government. Conservatives had no choice but to give them what they wanted even though they were still blamed for trying to protect us from potentially becoming a bankrupt nation sooner than later at this point.
It's because we're now the DDUSA. Thanks to people like you.
HEY STUPID! Name anyone who cut their way to prosperity in the history of civilization. We need to be investing in our infrastructure, education and research to make this a prosperous nation.

WaPo: CBS Ran Misleading Story On HealthCare.gov Security Issues

CBS News aired a misleading report on Monday about security issues concerning the federal health insurance exchange website based on leaked partial transcripts of a health care official's testimony, according to the Washington Post.

CBS reported that Henry Chao, lead project manager of Healthcare.gov at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, had been unaware of two major security holes in the website that could lead to identity theft.

"CBS News has learned that the project manager in charge of building the federal health care website was apparently kept in the dark about serious failures in the website's security," the CBS report reads. "Those failures could lead to identity theft among buying insurance."

When questioned by Rep. Gerald Connolly (D-VA) Wednesday at a House Oversight and Government Reform committee hearing, it became apparent that the security flaws that the CBS report discussed could not actually lead to identity theft.

According to Chao, the two modules the CBS report referenced are not currently active on the exchange website and that neither module used peronally identifiable information.

Connolly, while questioning Chao on Wednesday, implied that the partial leaked transcript came from Republican committee staff.

“So when CBS Evening News ran its report based on a leak, presumably from the [Republican] staff, but we don't know — of a partial transcript — excerpts from a partial transcript — they said the security issues raised in the document, and I quote,'could lead to identity theft among buying insurance,' that cannot be true based on what we established in our back and forth. Is that correct?” Connolly asked during the hearing, as quoted by the Washington Post.

Chao responded that Connolly was correct.

No evidence everyone will have to pay 5 times as much for insurance. Evidence of something that will happen requires use of a time machine. If you're looking for evidence that insurance premiums are skyrocketing now, put your hand on your mouse, move it and click so you get a google page up, type in "Obama Care insurance premiums" and just start reading, moron.

Your entire post is nothing more than false propaganda spam. I'll just go to your last paragraph....

If you read the ObamaKare law, you will see over and over "The Secretary will determine..." everything. This is simply a medieval Machiavellian system where some noble elite subjectively makes all determinations based on whatever subjective motivation they have, and the peasant serfs bound to the land have no recourse. The payment on the "quality of care" has no basis for judgment other than "The Secretary will determine" what constitutes quality, and what constitutes "care", without any standard for determination "The Secretary" can be held to and sent to prison if they violate.
And, to make it even more dispicable, they want to write a different law concerning bribes and kickbacks for ObamaKare than all other government programs in the entire monstrous government contracts procurement system is held to. They actually want the elitists working in the ObamaKare program to be legally able to take bribes and kickbacks.
Do you really think there won't be a lot, meaning a huge number of Americans that will object to this? You live in a dream world.

No Carol, you're the one who doesn't know what the hell you're talking about. The ACA doesn't even come close to being socialized medicine stupid. Socialized medicine is where the Government owns the hospitals and the doctors, nurses and other health employees are government employees. The ACA relies on the private sector insurance industry, hospitals and doctors to provide coverage and care. Even a single payer system like Medicare uses private sector physicians and hospitals. The only example of socialized medicine we have in this country is the VA medical system and I can say from personal experience that it works just fine.

"Name anyone who cut their way to prosperity in the history of civilization." ROFLMAOUISMFTO (Rolling On Floor Laughing My Ass Off Until I Spit My Taco Out).
I reference what we refer to as the "Roaring Twenties". Cuts in government spending freed up capital so the economic boom of the 20s was possible. If the government consumed all that capital, there would not be any capital to make the Roaring 20s happen. Every dollar the government spends has to be taken out of the economy, dumbass.

Spend more money on education? Just how stupid are you? We already have the most expensive education system in the entire world, and that grossly expensive education system generates the most ignorant workforce in the industrialized world. More money isn't what's needed, idiot. What is needed is to change it back to what it was when it was the finest education system in the history of civilization. That would be before the so-called "progressives" took it over and began a 40+ year decline without a single year of improvement. You are what's wrong with the education system. To fix it, we need to get rid of everyone like you. A good start would be to get rid of the Department of Education and send the money directly to the states, and let them make their own determination as to what an education system is. Obviously, the federal government doesn't have a clue, and they are nothing more than a cancer to education.
Invest in infrastructure? We've spent enough money on rebuilding the infrastructure to completely rebuild the entire infrastructure of the entire country. What did we get for all that money? Nothing. After spending all that money, you want more money? Just how stupid do you think everyone is?

You're an idiot, and an ignorant dupe.

On another note:

Voters say they trust congressional Republicans over Obama on handling four of these issues — immigration, the budget, health care, and the economy.
