I like this assessment of Obamacare:

You know, hypothetically, to make it seem like you’ll be getting a certain product (which doesn’t really exist), because what they’re really offering isn’t what you want and doesn’t even work.

So fooling you, by lying about what the situation is, will at least get you to buy into the scheme. That’s weird, but that sounds like something Mr. Obama would do.

One guy ruined the plan after he purchased health insurance on the California exchange and then had the gall to call doctors to set up an appointment. His temerity drove him to call every doctor listed as in-network, and none of them were.

In the normal world, this would be called “fraud.” In Obama’s America, it’s called a “snag,” and on a national scale, the Obama regime labels it “Shut up, Fox News!”

Democrats have only a 1 to 2 point lead in most but CBS/New York Times has Republicans ahead by 3 points.
Wait until we learn more about Obamacare and sign ups.
The White House says 4 million have signed up since it was launched in October. But a leading official at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said it was impossible to keep data on how many of those were previously uninsured.
Figures released by this government often show an inflated view of Obamacare because they include people who have enrolled and not paid their first premium.
That first premium is a doozy. Wait until more people figure this out.
Yep, yelling at the clouds. A new Pew Research Center survey out Friday showed that half of America's young adults, ages 18 to 33, consider themselves political independents, identifying with neither party. But asked which way they lean politically, half of the so-called millennials say they lean toward the Democratic Party, the highest share for any age group over the last decade.

You and you're party are fading into the sunset. Your goose is, as they say, cooked. Hang all your hopes and dreams on Obamacare, it's all you've got. Keep sticking with that Fox News! That's the ticket. Romney in a landslide.

That is nothing new. It's been like that since the 60's!!! Then when they get a little older and start to accumulate some net worth most will change.

Can't get medical care without forking over that first premium.

Imagine a lot of surprised people over the next few months.

But single payer is the goal. Obama doesn't really care about much else. He and Reid are just waiting for people to surrender.

The power hungry control freaks spearheading this fundamental transformation will have complete control over the media, over our health care and, thus, over us.

Don't at least some of you on the left really get this?

According to the CBO, the president's proposal to use the "chained CPI" to calculate cost of living increases would save the government $127 billion over 10 years by cutting Social Security and $36 billion over 10 years by cutting "programs affecting veterans and the poorest elderly and disabled." That's a grand total of $163 billion over ten years from hitting seniors, veterans, and the disabled.
President Barack Obama’s $3.901 trillion budget seeks $651 billion in new revenue from the rich, would formalize in the tax code a rule named for billionaire investor Warren Buffett, cuts the size and pay of the military, and expands or creates a series of social programs the president has long touted.
It would close military bases and reduce the size of the Army to about 440,000 troops — down 23 percent from the Iraq War peak of about 570,000. For the third year in a row, the Pentagon is asking Congress to close some military bases in 2017, to give troops a smaller pay increase and to cut the costs of their salary, benefits and health care.
http://www.politico.com/story/2014/03/obama-b...
Republicans tried to compromise but, thankfully, both sides are now backing away from the veterans' cuts.
Reducing the size of the military when the wars are over. Only a f*cking idiot would think that was bad.

Who say's their refusing to work moron? A great many work at low paying jobs like at Wal-Mart where they don't earn enough to make ends meet without some kind of public assistance. 76% of SNAP households included a child, an elderly person, or a disabled person. Another group that receives snap benefits is returning veterans. According to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP),“in any given month, a total of 900,000 veterans nationwide lived in households that relied on SNAP [Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program] to provide food for their families in 2011, a previous analysis of Census data estimated.” It's okay to send them off in harm's way but to hell with them when they return right?

Young Americans are turning against Barack Obama and Obamacare, according to a new survey of millennials, people between the ages of 18 and 29 who are vital to the fortunes of the president and his signature health care law.

The most startling finding of Harvard University's Institute of Politics: A majority of Americans under age 25--the youngest millennials--would favor throwing Obama out of office.

When asked if they would want to recall various elected officials, 45 percent of millennials said they would oust their member of Congress; 52 percent replied "all members of Congress" should go; and 47 percent said they would recall Obama. The recall-Obama figure was even higher among the youngest millennials, ages 18 to 24, at 52 percent.

Evidence casts doubt on ex-CIA leaders’ claims on Benghazi mortar attack
Catherine Herridge
By Catherine Herridge, Pamela BrownePublished March 08, 2014FoxNews.com Facebook2 Twitter11 Gplus0
If former CIA Director David Petraeus and his ex-deputy Michael Morell are recalled to testify on Benghazi, they can expect hard questions about the mortar attack on the CIA annex which killed two former Navy SEALs.
Republican Mike Rogers, chairman of the powerful House Intelligence Committee, is weighing whether to recall one or both of those officials over their Benghazi congressional testimony.
Rogers said the evidence suggests a highly skilled team carried out the mortar strike. Fox News has confirmed five rounds were fired in under a minute, with three hitting the annex roof -- a target roughly the size of two convenience stores.
"This was exceptionally good shooting. It was clearly accurate. They adjusted their fire, which is a term a mortar crew might use, so they went a little long and a little short and they fired for effect," Rogers said. "When you fire for effect and you have three rounds hit exactly where they were intended that ended up taking the lives of our American heroes there, that tells me that they knew exactly what they were doing. So that was either significantly preplanned, or it was a mortar crew that was exceptionally good."
In addition to Rogers’ assessment, military experts say the mortar strike on the CIA base was evidence of a planned terror attack, and because it forced the evacuation of the annex, it must have been known immediately in Washington. But in a letter to the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee in January 2013,Morell said “the nature of the attacks suggested they did not involve significant pre-planning."
Mortar crews have specialized training to prepare rounds for launch which includes calculations for distance, direction and altitude. Mortars are called “indirect fire” because in most cases, especially urban environments like Benghazi, the crew can't see the target.
A U.S. official familiar with the investigation said an early lead on the mortar site, a field a half -mile southeast of the annex, did not pan out in part because a forensic review showed the mortars were fired from a greater distance.
Given the accuracy, and the fact the rounds were fired in darkness, five military officers, including retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, concluded the terrorists pre-set the location.
"F..........
Separately, Morell is accused by Republicans on the Senate Intelligence Committee of misleading lawmakers over the White House's role in the so-called Benghazi talking points by stating the text was provided to the administration for their awareness, not for their input. Emails later released by the administration showed otherwise. Morell, who excised half of the talking points text, previously told Fox News that "neither the Agency, the analysts, nor I cooked the books in any way."
When pressed on the sophistication of the mortar attack, two sources familiar with Petraeus' statements to Congress said he also seemed to downplay the necessary planning and skill, stating the mortars could have been fired from the back of a truck with the same accuracy.
None of the five military officers contacted by Fox News said the truck explanation was plausible.
What Fox News & your dumbass right whiners forget is that Libya just completed a civil war. There were automatic weapons & mortars & those experience using them everywhere.

But hey, you f*cking losers keep bringing up Benghazi when the majority of voters think you dipsticks are pathetic to use the deaths of 4 Americans as political fodder.

The chart shows that for the past 40 years voting patterns haven't differed much by age. In fact, there's virtually no difference between generations at all until you get to the George Bush era. At that point, young voters suddenly leave the Republican Party en masse. Millennials may be far less likely than older generations to say there's a big difference between Republicans and Democrats, but their actual voting record belies that.

Whatever it was that Karl Rove and George Bush did—and there are plenty of possibilities, ranging from Iraq to gays to religion—they massively alienated an entire generation of voters. Sure, they managed to squeak out a couple of presidential victories, but they did it at the cost of losing millions of voters who will probably never fully return. This chart is their legacy in a nutshell.

Sorry. The Republican goose is cooked. Get along now.

Last month, Organizing for Action (previously Obama for America) promoted the "success story" of Chad Henderson, a supposedly random young person who miraculously enrolled in Obamacare while everyone else in America experienced major tech meltdowns and sticker shock. Turned out Lying Chad was actually an OFA volunteer who hadn't really enrolled in Obamacare yet because he was "joking."

Obama cited his mom's deathbed fight with her insurer several times over the years to support the Obamacare ban on pre-existing condition exclusions by insurers. During a 2008 debate, he shared her plight: "For my mother to die of cancer at the age of 53 and have to spend the last months of her life in the hospital room arguing with insurance companies because they're saying that this may be a pre-existing condition and they don't have to pay her treatment, there's something fundamentally wrong about that."

But New York Times reporter Janny Scott discovered that Dunham's health insurer had in fact reimbursed her medical expenses with nary an objection. The actual coverage dispute centered on a separate disability insurance policy.
