LIE: "A false statement made with deliberate intent to deceive; an intentional untruth; a falsehood."
I'm not convinced Obama had a deliberate intent to deceive. I am convinced that Palin, Romney and Bush did.
That's because you are still in denial. With ALL the research and "expert" testimony from his people, you are choosing to believe that not a single one of them ever "informed" him about the dubious consequences his unaffordable health care act might unleash upon the electorate? Something tells me you just might have a little "omission" to confess. LOL

Not due to the government.
Cancelling a policy when you get sick by an insurance company was one of the problems with insurance companies. That is just plain wrong and could have been addressed without screwing up the entire system. I suppose that has a lot to due with state contract laws.
Most policies are one year contracts.

I have to renew every year. Either the price goes up or they need to switch me to a different plan because the plan I had was no longer available (cancelled).

The only difference now sf you assh*les blaming it on the ACA.

What did you blame it on before then?

If you dipstick could think, you would understand that you need the mandate to get rid of pre-existing conditions. To have a mandate, you have to define what minimum coverage is.

Statistics show that regular health care visits lower the odds of the higher costs of bigger problems down the road Lowing the cost of healthcare. Policy minimums prove for low cost/no cost visits & preventative care.

When people like you have a fit about the ACA it proves you have no understanding of it.

I suspect Dave it's a lot that they don't want to know anything about the ACA as they are praying that it doesn't work, Kinda sad to see people so against something that is so good for so many.Sometime it seems like the Republicans are against anything that is good for fellow Americans.

I have a supplement and a little VA plan as well.
I remembered 68 because part of that unit was sent to I Corp near where my unit was located.
Advantage. You an get a supplement under Aetna if you want.

Where were you? We went to Dong Ha and later to Quang Tri. I left country after a couple of weeks in Quang Tri. If that unit had an Ace of Spades on the turret, that was us.

You don't read all of the posts, do you?

How many were cancelled due to government interference?

Responsibility for myself? If you only knew how ridiculous that sounded.

"V. Stiviano Trashes Black People on Tape (Video)
The Wrap
By Tim Kenneally 2 hours ago

Who says that irony is dead?

V. Stiviano, the woman at the center of the scandal surrounding L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling — who was banned from the NBA after he was caught on tape making racist comments to Stiviano — has now herself been captured making derogatory comments about black people, TMZ reports.

Also read: Donald Sterling Suing NBA for $1 Billion (Updated)

On the video, posted to TMZ, Stiviano comments,”I don't understand black people. You give them a little bit of money, they don't know what to do with it.”

She goes on to opine that black people “just act crazy … they're like,‘Yo, I wanna put extra rims on top of my rims. And my rims are gonna turn around. I'm gonna call them spinners.'”..."

Depends on who you ask.

Here in Florida our Governor Rick Scott said that over three hundred thousand lost their policies.

And then the insurance companies quickly stuck it right up his azz by publishing the facts__that nearly all of those policy holders were switched to conforming policies without any loss of coverage.

Yesterday, Barack Obama appeared to try to shift responsibility for the VA scandal to his predecessors, saying the problems “predated my presidency” and “I only found out from reporters”.

Yes, problems did predate his presidency, but things became exponentially worse while he was in charge. Under him came not just long waits, but clearly a rampant policy of lying and deception concerning those wait times. This involved reports lying to Congress about those times.

Before Obama entered office in 2009, his transition team was also briefed as to the wait time problem.

Did Obama sleep through those meetings, and sleep though last his six years in office? Or doesn’t he believe he has any obligation to execute the duties of his office?

Before he got into office, when he was campaigning, he also pontificated upon the issue, saying how something must be done.

Now, one more thing.

In case you weren’t aware of it, Barack Obama was also on the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee from 2005-2008. He’s had almost ten years where he has had a responsibility to address these issues. What was he doing then while our veterans waited?
