What exactly do you have against Americans being pissed off after finding out Obama is forcing them to pay twice as much - up to five times as much in some states - for pediatric and maternal coverage who have no children, who plan to have no children and aging Americans who were perfectly happy with their cheaper and chosen plans that were cancelled?
Only 15% of Americans claimed to be unhappy with their health care insurance.
So 85% of Americans now have to pay more for coverage they don't want or need for the other 15%?
Wasn't there a much more practical and common sense approach than a big government and IRS takeover?
They could have addresses what makes healthcare so expensive.

Wrong again, the people who HAD insurance that they liked may be able to get it back, if the ins company wants to offer it, and who knows if it will be offered at the same price that they were paying. Obama tried for damage control and failed.
What is the Republicant plan for providing health care coverage to Americans?

Is it better for those struggling or out of work to receive Medicaid and Medicare? Should a person who can afford healthcare insurance but cannot find a policy due to pre-existing conditions merely suck off the public aid teat?

Could the NSA use Microsoft's Xbox One to spy on you?

Skype swore wiretaps weren't possible before recent reports. Is Kinect next?

You close a laptop when you're not using it. Your phone faces the inside of a pocket, a purse, or lies flat on a table. But the Microsoft Kinect, a camera that will come connected to every new Xbox One game console, gets a perfect view of your living room. It's always listening for voice commands, even when you turn the Xbox off. It can even read your heartbeat with the right software.

And if we had an ideal situation and could have built the product in, you know, a five year period of time, we probably would have taken five years. But we didn’t have five years. And certainly Americans who rely on health coverage didn’t have five years for us to wait. We wanted to make sure we made good on this final implementation of the law."

The Texas ANG at Ellington had both versions of the supersonic interceptors and used them to patrol the Gulf of Mexico. The 111th FIS Texas ANG actually managed to lose a few of the dangerous jets along with the pilots. How dangerous were the F102's and F106's? In a word "very" with incident ratings over three times as high as the modern fleet of supersonic military aircraft.
Bush completed about 600 hours of flight time while at the Texas ANG with 278 hours on the F102-TF102.
Bush eventually lost his flight status due to missed physicals.
...but working as a community organizer in a war zone like Chicago would be much more dangerous than flying a "very dangerous" military fighter jet...

Wait John, let's give credit where credit is due, there have been a lot of good paying, full time jobs turned into even more minimum wage, part time jobs since Obamacare was passed. Job creation is in the eye of the beholder.

Three 20-year-old programmers build a working Obamacare website in just days (which is more than the government can do)
By DAILY MAIL REPORTER

PUBLISHED: 11:47 EST, 10 November 2013 | UPDATED: 11:47 EST, 10 November 2013

While the Obamacare website still remains broken, three 20-year-old programmers have shown the government how it should be done.

Ning Liang, George Kalogeropoulos and Michael Wasser developed a site in matter of days - and it does things the expensive and faltering healthcare.gov can't do.

From a San Francisco office the men have built HealthSherpa.com , which presents the Affordable Health Care Act data in a much simpler way to the government website.

Problem solving: The three 20-year-old programmers developed a site in matter of days that does things the expensive and faltering healthcare.gov just can't do.

Easy: The site, designed by Ning Liang, George Kalogeropoulos and Michael Wasser, allows a user to simply input their zip code and view all the health plans available to them Easy: The site, designed by Ning Liang, George Kalogeropoulos and Michael Wasser, allows a user to simply input their zip code and view all the health plans available to them

'They got it completely backwards in terms of what people want up front,' Liang told CBS News. The programmer continued:'They want prices and benefits, so that they could make the decision.'

HealthSherpa.com , which is just two weeks old, allows a user to simply input their zip code and view all the health plans available to them.

The programmers are also adding features to the site, such as a section on tax subsidies. But the three 20-year-olds say they worked on the project as a service rather than to make money.

If the president is ridiculed, it is the president that is doing that himself. The entire world is laughing at him because they hear so many constant lies from him. Zimbabwe has more credibility in the world than the United States.
Now, let's get back to the question you continually run away from.
Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi?
We can get to questions about Obama sabotaging Afghanistan later, like when he ordered all combat cease and all US forces to retreat to the population centers, dumbass.
I wonder if ChaunceyGardiner was saying the same thing when people were ridiculing Bush???
