President Obama is beginning 2014 on the upswing as millions are signing up for the ACA, and his approval rating has increased by 5 points according to Gallup.
The Gallup Obama approval daily tracking poll reveals that the president’s approval rating has jumped five points since the days before Christmas from 39%-44%. Disapproval of the president has fallen from 54%-49%. President Obama’s approval numbers shift wildly based on the tone of the media coverage that he is receiving, but media’s negativity was hiding a convergence of positive things.
Now that the ACA website is repaired, and millions of Americans are signing up, the media’s endless drumbeat of negativity has temporarily stopped. Without the Republican fueled Obama bashing from the corporate media, the president’s approval rating has gone up, and his disapproval rating has gone down.
Republicans and the media have consistently failed to understand, and in many cases actively worked to undermine, the fact that President Obama remains basically popular. For the sixth year in a row, the president was named the most admired man in the world. For as much as Republicans try to project their hatred and contempt for this president on to the nation, the rest of the country has never shared their feelings.

Liberals need to be careful not to jump the gun too soon when it comes to interpreting the polls.
It's not like Obamacare was a success and is just going to get better. In fact, the opposite is proving to be true.
In other words, it's not like Obamacare is going to go away and be swept under the rug by the liberal media this time.
It's widely understood there will be more problems before it gets fixed - if and when it becomes a success.
A lot of people aren't going to be as patient when it comes to their health care as this administration seems to think.

Or the Teabaggers in Congress who demanded same sex marriage be prohibited.
If they had, they'd know the 14th Amendment makes their homophobe apttempts to outlaw same sex marriage is UnConstitutional.
Funny how you "Constitutionalists" have been losing on Constitutional issues, like DOMA.
The Supreme Court shot down your sides hatred for freedom.
Same Sex marriage now legal in 18 States, the rest are court rulings away.
Yes, Liberals wrote the Constitution, and they know it means freedom for all Americans, not just the favored few.
You lose again, Dweeb. But you're used to it.
Keep whining, we enjoy your pain.

The contractor building the financial management system for Healthcare.gov is being blamed by a Houston hospital for delayed Medicare reimbursements that have caused the hospital to miss payrolls for weeks. Novitas Solutions is the federal government's new Medicare payment processor for the south-central region of the country hired by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), a division of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS.) ABC-KTRK in Houston reports:

According to the CEO Jason Leday, more than 150 employees haven't been paid in nearly a month.

"I understand that they have children and a house payment, bills. Not getting paid is wow," nearby resident Theresa Gutierrez said.

The hospital is strapped for cash not because its not making money, but because Leday says a new Medicare payment facilitator named Novitas Solutions is taking too way long to pay out Medicare claims to the hospital.

Leday says he's owed nearly $3 million in payments from Medicare and can't make payroll...

The Texas Medical Association says they are familiar with complaints like this one regarding the medicare payment facilitator- and a representative told us smaller community hospitals like this one are in similar situations.

It was the Teabaggers who lost Rmoney the election.

Folks like you and Nobraina. Idiots.

Americans hate the Teabaggers more than Congress itself!!

There is still a wide margin of difference in all primary polls:

CNN - 41% approve, 56% disapprove.
ABC News/Washington Post - 43% approve, 55% disapprove, Associated Press - 42% approve, 58% disapprove.
NBC News/Wall Street Journal - 43% approve, 54% disapprove.
Quinnipiac - 38% approve, 57% disapprove.

It has been predicted a second wave of 50 million to 100 million insurance policy cancellations next fall before the mid-term elections.

Can Obama and Democrats fare if that's true? Will growing anxiety among Americans be enough just fearing that as a distinct possibility put this party in jeopardy? How low will the numbers have to go before Obama admits this law is defeated and we can start over again?

Just thinking ahead.

once again the democrat's aka liberals hero speaks. Michael Moore: He also laid into the law's affordability, saying it's akin to "a cruel joke" — using the example of a 60-year-old couple making $65,000 a year who'd be stuck with premiums of nearly $12,000 a year and a deductible of $12,600 a year.

"If both become seriously ill, they might have to pay almost $25,000 in a single year," he wrote.

"Now let's see that text"

You're the Constitutionalist. Funny you need others to explain the Constitution to you. You didn't even know there was a 14th Amendment!!

But then, it's easy to prove you a fraud.

A Federal Court ruled Utah was in violation of the 14th Amendment. Take it up with them, you moron. It's obvious you know as little about the Constitution as you do about the oil industry.

New York’s small-business owners, seniors and doctors are among the big losers as President Obama’s prescription for health-insurance reform takes effect.

The National Federation of Independent Businesses, an organization that represents nearly 11,000 entrepreneurs across the state, says it has yet to find a single member whose health-care costs are going down under the ObamaCare program, whose plans took effect New Year’s Day.

Meanwhile, an “overwhelming majority” of businesses canvassed by the group has reported increases in their insurance premiums, said Mike Durant, the NFIB’s New York director.

That's just assuming you and science are all-knowing about life and everything in the universe. Which you and science aren't.

Was there a poll asking if ape-like men living in caves to ancient civilizations of invention and philosophers and advanced technology was because of ET intervention with the human race?

That' something even scientists can't figure out. That darn missing link. It's still missing.

The only thing you "buy" is Obama's lies and liquor. Did you tell your republican "friend" you were coming on the forum to talk about her "crock" that you're not "buying"? Why would you choose to believe someone who actually won "Lie of the Year", instead? Oh, yeah... I know why... Bwhahahaha...

Nice job.
Would you be talking about muslim terrorist organizations in policy making positions in Obama's White House?
Or, would you be talking about Obama lying for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the US in Benghazi?
Or, would you be talking about Hillary lying to Congress?
Or, would you be talking about Eric Holder lying to Congress?
Or, would you be talking about the NSA unconstitutionally spying on Americans?
Or, would you be talking about the IRS consulting with the White House over a hundred times to target TEA Party organizations?
Or, would you be talking about Moochelle's old classmate from Princeton who owns a foreign company getting a contract for 93 million dollars to build the ObamaKare website disaster and stole the software for instead of writing it like we paid her to do, ultimately costing us a billion dollars for a website that would have cost less then 50 million dollars to build in the private economy that still doesn't work, after she demonstrated her complete incompetence when she got a contract from the Canadian government to build a gun registry that never worked even after a hundred million dollar cost overrun?
Or, would you be talking about Obama being indoctrinated in hatred of the United States his entire life?
Or, would you be talking about Obama being an ignorant buffoon propped up to make it look like someone's actually president while Vallerie Jarrett is the actual president?
Or, would you be talking about Obama being a dropout from Occidental College and followed his boyfriend, who actually did transfer from Occidental to Columbia, to New York where nobody in the entire student body or faculty ever met him?
Or, would you be talking about Obama not being a US citizen when he traveled to Pakistan while it was on the US State Department's "no travel" list in 1981?
Or, would you be talking about when Obama lied about being born in Kenya?
Or, would you be talking about when Obama lied about being born in Hawaii?

... and on, and on, and on.

Here's a couple of questions you never answered:

Did Obama lie when he said he was born in Kenya, or did Obama lie when he said he was born in Hawaii?

Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Banghazi?

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

How long do you think before New York City slides backwards to the David Dinkins high crime, grafiti era with its new liberal Mayor who got elected cause his kid has an afro and he promised "equality" and "fairness"?

During yesterday's inauguration, numerous libs knocked former Mayor Bloomberg's policies. Meanwhile, Bloomberg was a successful businessman who followed Guiliani, a successful prosecutor. Their leadership brought NYC back from being another lib run cesspool.

In true lib fashion, an empty suit politician was elected by the lowest voter turnout in years. We might as well have Al Sharpton sitting in Gracie mansion.

Detroit, here we come.

Sit back and watch the decline. Squeegee men and thugs are rejoicing.
