Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

The few good things in Obamacare - pre-existing conditions being one of them - could have been legislated separately without Obama and the IRS taking over our lives and telling us what insurance coverage we HAVE to buy whether we want it or need it or not.
And causing a major upheaval in everyone's lives when only 15% of Americans weren't happy before.
We needed changes - but not giving up our individual rights to make our own choices.
Do you not see what's wrong with that?
I don't disagree. I was not one of those who supported the ACA. I thought it was too all-encompassing but, once it became law, I got behind it to make sure that it succeeds in helping Americans that need medical help. That is what Americans do. We don't sit in a corner, whine, cry and stomp our feet when things don't go our way. We get up and do all we can to support our system of government and it's laws. Something you obviously haven't learned yet.

FACT: Every poor choice has an impact on our society. Some people need to be protected from themselves. Their "rights" shouldn't trump the "rights" of others.

IMO, insurance companies shouldn't be allowed to offer dysfunctional insurance products in the first place and they certainly did not have the right to yank coverage when someone actually got sick.

The ACA is the law of the land and people should be doing all they can to see that it is successful.

And.... the improvements are on the way!
A look at claimed improvement to health website
Email this Story
Dec 1, 12:43 PM (ET)
By The Associated Press
(AP) This photo of part of the HealthCare.gov website is photographed in Washington, on Nov. 29, 2013....
Full Image
Highlights of the Obama administration's update Sunday on the status of HealthCare.gov , the website that people in 36 states were supposed to use beginning on Oct. 1 to sign up for new health insurance coverage. After much work on the troubled site, the government claimed in a new report:
System: Site supports 50,000 concurrent users; users spend an average of 20 minutes to 30 minutes on the site; based on usage trends, the site will support more than 800,000 consumer visits per day.
Site capacity: "Stable at its intended level."
Performance: Activity levels show the site is "working for consumers."
Response time: Average system response time is lower than a second.
Error rate: Consistently below 1 percent, down from 6 percent earlier this fall.
System stability: Hardware upgrades and software fixes to keep the website up and running more than 90 percent of the time.
Rapid response team: 24/7 monitoring and operations center and team in place to watch system performance and to respond to glitches and unplanned downtimes.
Software fixes: More than 400 bug fixes and software improvements have been made.
Hardware upgrades: Improvements increased some capabilities fivefold.
Dong, you slanty-eyed chinaman tub of goo!! Were you able to successfully sign up for ochimpocare at your weight?? If you drop under 400 lbs, you might get a discount!!

We have already discussed the 30 million uninsured. Don't you remember? The system was not designed to provide insurance fro everyone. It doesn't cover illegals or those who do not qualify for medicaid and can't afford coverage even with a subsidy. We knew that from the beginning.(Of course, we didn't know that so many Republican governors would refuse to expand Medicaid).
As far as people having "a much more difficult time getting prompt health care", that's conjecture...another conspiracy theory. Wait and see.
LMAO at your propoganda-spreading azz, aunt jemimah!! Who's "we"; do you have a negro-colored turd in your apron pocket? How's the minimum wage disinformation campaign coming along? Not getting any converts, huh?

In 2008 when we were all researching Obama Care, you had diligently researched and found many problems within its draft stage(s). We all did, but you took a fined tooth comb and posted its many flaws and problems that would be created by and arise from this debacle. You were opposed to many of its policies; disagreed with many of its mandates.
You had a keen insight and took an analytical bi-partisan approach
which I respected.
Regardless of what The Supreme Court determined, it is only spin after all; it just depends on what side the top stops.
The ( Liberal ) Court manipulated The Clause to fit its agenda.
Many of The Insurance Market reforms The Republicans wanted to introduce into the Health Care legislation The Democrats ignored. So, WHAT " ...because insurance market reforms couldn't function effectively without it" is being refered to?
In short, Private Business >> The Insurance Markets could not function effectively without "it" << **Government Instrusion,Taxation & Massive Regulation**.
Because that is what you are agreeing with.
Though Government has done nothing about The Medicaid and Medicare fraud and corruption that continues to this day. Can't even oversee and manage those programs, let alone the whole Health Care Industry!
But in the words of Hilary Rodham Clinton:
"What difference does it make (now)"?
Don't think she's the best candidate to quote regarding:
"I think that you can disagree with people and debate over their positions with issues without engaging in the politics of personal destruction."
Though I agree with the concept ...
And:
It was Hilary Rodham Clinton who started that damn Birther Movement that just won't seem to go away.
All that said: Nice to debate with you as well.
"In 2008 when we were all researching ObamaCare."

Do you see anything wrong with that statement?

Just looking at Biden's and Obama's tax returns the first time around, the charity part seemed to be pretty skimpy.
The Pilgrims figured out communal living didn't work for the same reasons it doesn't work today.
People back then didn't mind watching other people work either as long as they got the same stuff. The Pilgrims ditched communal living rather quickly and were actually the first capitalists - dividing up the land and saying 'do it yourself or don't eat.'
Bush and Clinton went to Haiti to help there!

When you think about it, it's pretty odd that the banks would give as much money as they did to Senators like Kerry, Dodd and Obama. Because they were not the majority party.

As to which of the two parties is more permissive of corporate scams, take a wild guess.

Defense rests.
Yeah

Obama Care? Oh, I put a space between the Obama and the Care?

OH, YES! The Name!
It sure as shyzer can't be ObamaCare - It Isn't & He Doesn't .. Same with Affordable Care Act - It 'Aint' & He 'Don't'!

So, it must be the word research(ing) that's got you stymied.

Didn't do YOUR research, didja?
