<quoted text> That's why a cretin like you would be mentioning Bush, Romney and Palin. Still waiting for you to admit Obama earned "Lie of the Year" for his untruthfulness about his unaffordable care act. Your still being in denial says it all, though. LOL
I will go so far as to say that once Obama became aware of the growing number of cancellations, he should have stopped quoting from the Affordable Care Act and added "unless your policy loses it's grandfather status" through policy changes. IMO, an omission is not a "lie". Romney lied. Palin lied. Bush lied. There is a difference.

Partially. Aetna Medicare Advantage. Just started this year. One would be foolish to depend on Medicare alone without private insurance. I don't go to any mills. I went to one once where I saw a waiting room full of coughing and snot slinging derelicts. The female manager was dressed like a hooker. I walked out.

You mean a supplement right? Hah__it's a Medicare supplement stooge, not private insurance. And if you wish you can wire up to Part D__I don't currently but can join later if the need arises.

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.

You and liberals hold a grudge - if it's not about the sins of the past which this generation had nothing to do with, it's about not winning an election that could have gone either way.
Conservatives, including me, have to keep reminding liberals like you that you're screwing things up. O'Reilly keeps telling you to wise up and Hannity gives you the whole scoop.
There's no grudge. Just disappointment in our fellow Americans.

If Fannie and Freddie did not purchase those toxic loans the government would never had been responsible to bail anyone out and they would have never sold them without that backing.
Grow up.
Fannie and Freddie didn't purchase all that many. When the housing market imploded only 20% of their portfolio was in subprime loans the rest were purchased by banks and investment houses. Let's not forget that ratings agencies aided and abetted this by rating these mortgage backed securities as AAA. Why? Because they were paid to.

The liberal protestors weren't worried about money. They didn't want to hear anything that would disrupt their liberal institution's brainwashing.
But don't you think banning free speech and any expression of thought that deviates from a one-party ideology is very Nazi/Stalin-like?.
And would you have a problem with rehabilitation camps to "redirect" conservatives' misguided thoughts as a form of punishment? Sadly enough, some liberals wouldn't.
Don't think it couldn't happen here.
On a more positive note .......

For months, critics of the Affordable Care Act boldly vowed to eradicate what they insisted was a failed health reform plan -- vows they repeated even as thousands, then tens of thousands and now hundreds of thousands of Kentuckians began accessing insurance and coverage via the health benefit exchange that we call "kynect."

Now comes Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell's amended election-year promise, delivered as he's fighting for his political life: To rid the state of the ACA even while keeping all the good that "kynect" does.

At best, of course, his promise represents a fundamental misunderstanding of the ironclad link between the ACA and "kynect." At worst, it's a blatant attempt to mislead Kentucky families for his political benefit.

While that is fun to ponder, the salient point is this: Even critics are acknowledging that the ACA is bringing health care to those who desperately need it. In short, it's working.

I see the ACA's positive impact first-hand in my home state, a place whose collective poor health has long been jeopardizing the lives and financial security of hard-working families who can't seem to get ahead.

Recently I was cornered by a Kentucky radio talk-show host with a large and rabid following. He didn't want to discuss politics or sports. Rather, he began telling me about a pre-existing health condition that for years had prevented him from obtaining health insurance. But thanks to "kynect," he now had coverage.

I wasn't surprised.

No matter where I go, I'm greeted by people who have used "kynect" to access good health, peace of mind and financial security.

A young, self-employed woman who, a month after getting coverage, was rushed to the hospital for an emergency appendectomy.
A widow with three children whose employer didn't offer insurance.
A woman with multiple health issues who had been going without medicine while caring for a disabled adult child and four grandchildren, all of whom had insurance but her.
And a diabetic who had been unable to afford the insurance his employer offered and thus couldn't treat or monitor his condition.
In fact, over 421,000 Kentuckians have signed up for health insurance through "kynect" -- about 75 percent of whom didn't previously have insurance and about 52 percent of whom were under age 35.

Your difference is: If Obama lies, it's an "omission"; if a Republican lies, it's a lie.
Wake up and smell the Obama snake oil, and then smell your own. No wonder you support Obama; you're BOTH liars, or as you would say, "omissionists".

Heard this explained very well last night. Advanced technology is already replacing humans in the workplace along with hiring cheap labor from illegal immigrants and outsourcing to cheap labor in other countries. ObamaCare's part-time incentive and raising the minimum wage will mean even fewer jobs.
We'd better come up with a very good solution quickly.

I'm not convinced Obama had a deliberate intent to deceive. I am convinced that Palin, Romney and Bush did.

Hmmm. Who was it that said the Obama administration was miscalculating by agreeing to negotiate with the Taliban in Afghanistan? Romney? McCain? Fox News? Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl should be thanking God that McCain and Romney lost their presidential bids.

If she'd been paying attention she would have heard about technology replacing people back during the fifties and sixties. Who can forget the key punch? If she'd been paying attention during Reagan she would know all about those who sneak in to the US through Mexico and elsewhere to do the menial labor and if she'd been paying attention during Clinton and Bush she'd already know about the millions of jobs that were outsourced.

But it took a TV show the other evening to get her to thinking?

That Carol sure has a lot to be modest about eh?

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

Yep she's the Queen Bee.

BTW the Queen Bee had no clue that there were mosques in Detroit's suburbs until Terry Jones went up there to protest.
