<quoted text>and most of that increase came before the ACA was just a glimmer in Obama's eye, didn't it?
in fact, premium increases have dropped dramatically since the implementation of the ACA.
The 5 million people who had their policies cancelled because of ObamaKare and had to purchase new policies say you're lying.

But, we're going to get a lot more data to use when the employer mandate is enforced. Corporations are going to just pay the penalty and dump all their employees onto ObamaKare because it's cheaper for them to do that. You're going to see at least 50 million people lose their insurance, and maybe as many as 100 million.(This is why Obama is unconstitutionally rewriting the ObamaKare law to suit political whim, and delay this disaster until after the next presidential election.)
Then, all those people will have to purchase a more expensive policy with a higher deductible from those same insurance companies.

The next time you are watching a real news program, take some notes. You're looking like an ignorant buffoon here.

After the Katrina disaster, I did some research and found:
- The Governor is the only person who can ask the President to make a major disaster declaration.
- Bush had called Governor Kathleen Blanco ( and Mayor Ray Nagin ) on more then two occasions asking her to start the paperwork on The Declaration Process so he could release FEMA.
- Though New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin was also contacted by NOAA and The National Weather Service, told to immediately call for evacuation, Nagin ignored their warning and waited until the 11th hour and then only called for a partial evacuation.
His failing to implement a proper evacuation plan caused much more devastation to The People, many lives ...
And now the truth is all coming out ...
Bush declared New Orleans a disaster area two full days before the storm hit, which released all federal assets for disaster to the authority of Governor Kathleen Blanco.
The Nagin city government of New Orleans collapsed the day before Katrina hit.
The Blanco state government collapsed when the storm came ashore.

Bush did not have to wait for permission to act as he should have. yes, the gov and mayors screwed up also...

no they don't...their policy increases were still lower than the increases prior to the ACA.

again, you are in a total disconnect with reality and the facts.....

don't you get tired of having everything you post proven to be bullshit?

But "we're" discussing why the delay in FEMA. Why the delay in Evacuation Plan.

Those weren't Bush errors.

But both of those delays caused many deaths, much destruction and why Ray Nagin is facing charges.

And Bush is exonerated. Fault him for the flaws in deeds he IS/WAS guilty of.
Not another's ...

Low IQ voters....

2003, NPR, Kaiser, and Kennedy School of Government survey...

'Half of Americans (50%) donít know that in the past two years there has been a cut in federal income taxes.'

BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT PAYING ANY.....?????

'57 percent of Americans think that high income earners DO NOT pay their fair share of taxes...'

"More that six out of 10 (63%) think that low-income or middle-income people pay the highest percentage of their income in federal taxes."

'Only a quarter (25%) know that upper-income people actually pay the highest percentage.'

I didn't understand when I was reading that there was some wrangling within The White House with The President, Officials over The Law regarding did The Federal Government
( by Law, as written within The Law ) have the authority to release FEMA without the request of The Governor ... Obviously Bush was trying to do the right thing by New Orleans, Louisiana and The Law ... While those 2 blockheads were running around like chickens.

Explain ...
