Hilarious. You offer nothing but an immature jumble of lies and wild guesses, then accuse others of whining and having nothing to offer?

"Judge its"? Really?

Here's a clue, Skippy. The "judge its" are for the children, trolls and lurkers. They mean nothing.

Oprah should shut up. Obama will be respected if and when he earns it. He's a proven liar. He's also a coward, afraid to take responsibility for ANYTHING negative. He's trusted only by sycophants like you.

Gee, you posted something interesting for a change.(Picture me flabbergasted).
From your article:
"Medicaid enrollees have by far the highest per person use of hospital emergency departments..." So, when Peter Cunningham speaks of the uninsured vs the insured, he's grouping those on Medicaid with those who are privately insured. It stands to reason that those would outnumber the uninsured.
My first thought was, "Oh, Oh, adding millions to Medicaid is going to make a mess of emergency rooms". Then, I reminded myself that the whole purpose of the ACA is to see that people get preventive treatment before their illnesses become acute. People on Medicaid are naturally sicker. Perhaps we won't see the positive effects on emergency rooms right away. People are too sick. But, it will happen.
Even Peter Cunningham believes that "shifting emergency department use for non-urgent health problems to primary care providers in the community to relieve crowded emergency departments, lower the costs of care and improve the quality of care" is a good idea for those on Medicaid as "the potential cost savings to the Medicaid program could be substantial." As Cunningham noted in your article, "Few emergency department visits are truly nonurgent."

Oh dear God but the Democrats have not done right by this woman.

OLYMPIA, Nov. 17.—Jessica Sanford, the Federal Way woman who got a shout-out from President Obama last month with her fan letter for the Affordable Care Act, got a rather rude awakening last week. Turns out she doesn’t qualify for a tax credit after all.

At least that’s what the letter said that she got from the state. Now she says her dream of affordable health insurance has gone poof. She can’t afford it. She’ll have to go without.“I’m really terribly embarrassed,” she says.“It has completely turned around on me. I mean, completely.”

The short version is that the vaunted Washington state exchange – you know, the one that had Democratic governor Jay Inslee bragging today about how great it is – first messed up Ms. Sanford’s subsidy calculation. Then the exchange misled her about what would happen if she signed her kid up for the Medicaid expansion (she’d lose the tax credit from having a kid). So then the state exchange told Ms. Sanford that she doesn’t actually qualify for a subsidy at all… which means that she went from a gold plan to a silver plan and now is looking at a bronze plan that is so pathetic that it’ll make more sense for her to eat the tax, instead… and even then she’ll have another surprise when it turns out that she’ll owe about $350, not $95*. Oh, and the state of Washington is possibly enrolling people on Medicaid that they have no business enrolling in the first case. It’s hard to say, given how bad the customer service is.

Yay, Obamacare.

Why would anyone desire to force nothing but chaos and mayhem, into peoples private lives, as this bunch of goons has done by shoving the tentacles of this frankenstienian octopus monstrosity into the American economy every where, where it did NOT need to be?

A. Because they're a bunch of out of control commies -
(and just for you Homer-defined:
communism
noun \&#712;km-y&#601;- &#716;ni-z&#601;m,-y- \

: a way of organizing a society in which the government owns the things that are used to make and transport products (such as land, oil, factories, ships, etc.) and there is no privately owned property
Full Definition of COMMUNISM
1
a : a theory advocating elimination of private property
b : a system in which goods are owned in common and are available to all as needed
2
capitalized
a : a doctrine based on revolutionary Marxian socialism and Marxism-Leninism that was the official ideology of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics
b : a totalitarian system of government in which a single authoritarian party controls state-owned means of production
c : a final stage of society in Marxist theory in which the state has withered away and economic goods are distributed equitably
d : communist systems collectively

B.Because they're inept AND a bunch of commies

or

C. Both A and B.

Need more clarification Homer? Lets say you cawr needs A tire. You bring it to you nearest commieTIC type garage for repair. They tell you you cannot have just A tire, you MUTT purchase four new tires, so the commie garage can cabbage MORE off YOUR back, to pay for the commie crony lunaTic in line behind you, who gets tires for fwee even though he license is suspended for stealing others hubcaps, for selling them for he own profit, and then pocketing it for heself-and he commieTic band of thieves like he (which includes the commie garage owner forcing you to buy four tires-three of which you do not need).
Oh yeah-and that's the ONLY way you can get A tire, because the garage down the road from the COMMIEtic one, is OUT OF BUSINESS, because someone has persistantly stole all they hubcaps AND they tires, and they had to raise prices so dramaTically, to be able to cover all they LOSSES, they had to CLOSE they NON commieTic doors.

Which is exactly the SAME scenario as is the current state of the american COMMUNIST act.

"You like your insurance, you can keep it".

ROTFLMAO!

This is the same Bimbo Obama gave a "shout-out" to just last month, yet now she is screwed after finding out the truth.

These idiots that supported Obama could and can't figure out Obama is not for the working middle class. He and the DemoRats are using these useful idiots.

They deserve what they are getting for being so stupid, just like the people of Germany did in 1945. They all supported a leader that misled and lied to them.

Don't look now, but there's another log in your eye. Please remove it before focusing on the splinter in mine.
We all want to help the poor. You seem to think you somehow have a monopoly on compassion just because you're a liberal and everything that entails.
As a liberal, you defend abortion on demand, voted for a man who has no qualms about denying a born alive botched abortion baby medical care, and supports laziness and slothfulness as a lifestyle at hardworking taxpayers' expense.
Being a conservative who is against abortion, who didn't vote for a man who has such a callousness towards life and the most vulnerable, and who believes human dignity trumps dependency on others does not make my any less of a Christian than you.
Pride goes before a fall. Watch your step.
Well Carol, you have a whole forest in both your eyes. Liberals are more capable of examining the complexities of an issue like abortion. We ask why women choose to terminate a pregnancy and what we can do to make this option unnecessary. We favor access to contraception, comprehensive sex education in schools and strengthening the social safety net to ease the economic burdens of having a child. Liberals like Laura Delauro have proposed legislation like Reducing the Need for Abortion and Supporting Parents Act which didn't have even a single Republican cosponsor. You and your ilk on the other hand just want to outlaw abortion which will force women to seek out back alley butchers like Kermit Gosnell. Before Roe v Wade made terminating a pregnancy legal and allowed women a safe medical option this happened all too frequently and women died as a result.
Your accusation that Obama as a state senator voted against protections for babies born alive due to botched abortions is a lie. There were already laws in place to cover that eventuality.. Illinois compiled statute 720 ILCS 510/6 states that physicians performing abortions when the fetus is viable must use the procedure most likely to preserve the fetus life; must be attended by another physician who can care for a born-alive infant; and must "exercise the same degree of professional skill, care and diligence to preserve the life and health of the child as would be required of a physician providing immediate medical care to a child born alive in the course of a pregnancy termination which was not an abortion." Failure to do any of the above is considered a felony. The legislation he voted against contained language that was intended to intimidate physicians performing what whether you like it or not is a legal and necessary procedure.
Taking care of the most vulnerable in our society doesn't equate to encouraging laziness you ignorant twit. You keep forgetting that the majority of those who receive government help are the working poor, families with children and those with disabilities. The only reason someone like you would give a dime to a poor person is so you can feel all smug and superior. As for liberals, and make no mistake about it Jesus was the ultimate liberal, we look to the words of the Gospels as in Matthew 25;
Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me. It makes no difference to us whether we do this directly as most of us do, or through our taxes. You just don't like not getting to pick and choose who to favor with your largess.
Don't talk to me about pride Carol, you're the one who claims that you'll just fly through the Gates to the Kingdom. That's presumption which goes hand in hand with the sin of pride.

The reason why democrats created this mess we're in is because they voted for it on strict partisan lines behind closed doors bribing moderate democrats without even reading it and not bothering to convince one republican or the American people of its merits.
Ruining millions of lives was nothing more than a political ploy.
They were so afraid Republicans might have some kind of advantage if they told the truth, they deliberately made the decision to lie instead.
They've made their bed but instead of lying in it, many are saying "now it's time we all sat down together to fix it"...
"We"? Do they all have a mouse in their pockets?
Or did they just now figure out we've always been a two-party system and it wasn't all about them?
Really nitwit? How many lives were ruined before the ACA was enacted? How many patients who were undergoing long term chemotherapy or dialysis had their lives ruined or just terminated because their coverage was cutoff due to some arbitrary lifetime cap?
The Democrats had to go with a strictly partisan approach because the GOP took a blood oath to block and obstruct anything coming from the other side of the aisle.
Just how has the ACA ruined millions of lives you damned liar?

The Gettysburg Address
Gettysburg, Pennsylvania
November 19, 1863
On June 1, 1865, Senator Charles Sumner referred to the most famous speech ever given by President Abraham Lincoln. In his eulogy on the slain president, he called the Gettysburg Address a "monumental act." He said Lincoln was mistaken that "the world will little note, nor long remember what we say here." Rather, the Bostonian remarked, "The world noted at once what he said, and will never cease to remember it. The battle itself was less important than the speech."

There are five known copies of the speech in Lincoln's handwriting, each with a slightly different text, and named for the people who first received them: Nicolay, Hay, Everett, Bancroft and Bliss. Two copies apparently were written before delivering the speech; the remaining ones were produced months later for soldier benefit events. Despite widely-circulated stories to the contrary, the president did not dash off a copy aboard a train to Gettysburg. Lincoln carefully prepared his major speeches in advance; his steady, even script in every manuscript is consistent with a firm writing surface, not the notoriously bumpy Civil War-era trains. Additional versions of the speech appeared in newspapers of the era, feeding modern-day confusion about the authoritative text.

Nicolay Copy

Named for John G. Nicolay, President Lincoln's personal secretary, this is considered the "first draft" of the speech, begun in Washington on White house stationery. The second page is writen on different paper stock, indicating it was finished in Gettysburg before the cemetery dedication began. Lincoln gave this draft to Nicolay, who went to Gettysburg with Lincoln and witnessed the speech. The Library of Congress owns this manuscript.

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth, upon this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived, and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle field of that war. We come to dedicate a portion of it, as a final resting place for those who died here, that the nation might live. This we may, in all propriety do.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate we can not consecrate we can not hallow, this ground The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have hallowed it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here; while it can never forget what they did here.

It is rather for us, the living, we here be dedicated to the great task remaining before us that, from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here, gave the last full measure of devotion that we here highly resolve these dead shall not have died in vain; that the nation, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

As written on the teleprompter for Obama:

Five years ago the Communist Party USA brought forth, upon this government of the people, the last battle of the American communist rebellion, conceived in Marxism, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal, with the exception of the ruling elite, unions, and associated cronies.

Now we are engaged in the last battle, testing whether this nation, or any nation with limited government, and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met in the hidden corridors of government. We come to take control of it, as a final assault on individual freedom begins, that the nation might die and be replaced by a Marxist communist totalitarian dictatorship. This we may, in all propriety do.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate we can not consecrate we can not hallow, these corridors The Democrat communists, living and dead, who sabotaged the limited government here, have hallowed it, in preparation for us to take our place in history as conquerers. The world will forever note, and long remember what we say here; because saying is the same as doing.

It is rather for us, the current threat to limited government, we here be dedicated to the great task remaining before us that, from these honored past communist saboteurs we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here, gave the last full measure of devotion that we here highly resolve these communists that preceeded us shall not have lied in vain; that the nation, shall have a new birth of elite rulers, and that government over the people, ruling the people, lying to the people, shall not perish from the earth.
