In the meantime, those nutcases who decide to express their displeasure with the ACA and Obama by refusing to carry health insurance can gamble with their health. No body really cares what happens to them anyways.
Thanks for admitting what we already knew from the beginning.

The fact that your president claimed that "Obamacare" was an appropriate name for the ACA because "I do care" is perhaps the biggest lie he's told to this point.

No one can STILL have their head that far up Obama's azz after everything that's transpired over the past 2 months without being one of the two.

Yes Carol, when you propagate racist myths you are a racist.
According to a 2010 report released by the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the average family receiving TANF benefits has 1.8 children, which is about the same as the national average. Half of the families receiving TANF benefits only have one child. In fact, the average size of families receiving welfare benefits has declined from 4.0 in 1969 to 2.4 in 2010. Also, some states, such as Delaware and Georgia, make it clear to those who sign up for TANF benefits that their benefits will not increase if they have additional children. Taken from the Delaware Department of Health and Human Services website:
You will get information on family planning. Your check will not increase if you have a baby 10 months or more after you sign up for this program.
Filthy, racist, violent, criminal ghetto scumbags like you and your relatives are the racists.

Unfortunately, it's actually Realtime who rarely gets anything correct.
Fannie and Freddie were pressured to take on risk to be profitable but knew they wouldn't suffer the consequences if things turned south. The government set them up this way to allow them to buy qualified mortgages, insure them and resell them to investors, thus freeing up funds for banks to make new mortgages.
In this way, they were traditionally involved in at least half of all new mortgages made each year. By December 2007, when banks began to constrict their lending, Fannie and Freddie were really the only lender still operating, responsible for 90% of all mortgages.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were victims, not culprits
Posted by: Aaron Pressman on September 26, 2008
There’s a dangerous — and misleading — argument making the rounds about the causes of our current credit crisis. It’s emanating from Washington where politicians are engaging in the usual blame game but this time the stakes are so high that we can’t afford to fall victim to political doublespeak. In this fact-free zone, government sponsored mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac caused the real estate bubble and subprime meltdown. It’s completely false. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were victims of the credit crisis, not culprits.
Start with the most basic fact of all: virtually none of the $1.5 trillion of cratering subprime mortgages were backed by Fannie or Freddie. That’s right — most subprime mortgages did not meet Fannie or Freddie’s strict lending standards. All those no money down, no interest for a year, low teaser rate loans? All the loans made without checking a borrower’s income or employment history? All made in the private sector, without any support from Fannie and Freddie.
Look at the numbers. While the credit bubble was peaking from 2003 to 2006, the amount of loans originated by Fannie and Freddie dropped from $2.7 trillion to $1 trillion. Meanwhile, in the private sector, the amount of subprime loans originated jumped to $600 billion from $335 billion and Alt-A loans hit $400 billion from $85 billion in 2003. Fannie and Freddie, which wouldn’t accept crazy floating rate loans, which required income verification and minimum down payments, were left out of the insanity.

The study identifies five causes of the subprime meltdown:
-Convoluted loan products that consumers didn’t understand.
-Credit ratings that didn’t do a good job highlighting the risks contained in subprime-backed securities.
-Lack of incentives for institutional investors to do their own research (they just relied on the credit ratings).
-Predatory lending and borrowing (which I think means fraud perpetrated by borrowers).
-Significant errors in the models used by credit rating agencies to assess subprime-backed securities.
You’ll note in the Fed’s five causes that there’s some culpability for lenders, borrowers, investors and credit raters. There’s no blame for Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae which had little or nothing to do with the entire situation.
It’s certainly fair to criticize Fannie and Freddie over real issues that contributed to their downfall. The companies had numerous accounting problems and inadequate safeguards covering their own investment portfolios. Those weaknesses came home to roost when the real estate market cratered. Fannie and Freddie purchased billions of dollars of subprime-backed securities for their own investment portfolios and got hit just like every other investor. But it’s some kind of crazy, politically inspired CYA to blame for the mess we’re in.
(For a more fair and balanced — and detailed — recounting of Fannie and Freddie’s subprime investing forays, see this post from the excellent Calculated Risk blog.)

Republicans Blame Obamacare for Alabama’s Iron Bowl Loss To Auburn

Republicans will literally blame Obamacare for anything. This includes blaming an Obamacare sign for Alabama’s loss to Auburn in the Iron Bowl.

Here is the final play where Auburn returned a missed 57 yard Alabama field goal attempt for the touchdown that won the game.

You might be thinking that Alabama lost the game because head coach Nick Saban decided to go for a difficult 57 yard field goal instead of heading to overtime, or maybe you think that it was just bad luck that Auburn won another game with a miracle ending.

But if you are a Republican you know that the real reason why soon to be former #1 team in the country lost the game.

Alabama lost because of this sign: Saban Loves Obamacare

Michelle Malkin’s Twitchy was loaded with Republicans who thought that the Saban sign was the best insult ever, but leave it Sen. Ted Cruz’s speechwriter to proclaim that the sign doomed Nick Saban’s Crimson Tide.

It is difficult to wrap your mind around the idea that a law that gives people access to affordable health care is somehow a great slur and insult. What is absolutely unfathomable is how deep the Obamacare Derangement Syndrome runs in the Republican Party.

These people will literally blame the Affordable Care Act, or a sign referencing the law, for anything. If Alabama would have made the final field goal, would that have meant that Saban’s supposed love of Obamacare powered the ball through the uprights?

Of course not, but Republicans have completely lost their minds because the health insurance market will have to adhere to free market principles.

This polluted thinking is what makes Republicans think that they can run against the ACA and take back the Senate in 2014. This serious level of derangement has them convinced that running against the ACA will lead them back to the White House in 2016.

The power of Obama hate did not cost Alabama the game, but to the Obama haters a magic sign did defending champs in.

For the record we don’t know how Nick Saban really feels about Obamacare, but I’ll bet he wishes that he could have that decision to try a 57 yard field goal back.
