Punishing Millions For A Proofreading Error
The two Republicans’ decision rests on a glorified typo in the Affordable Care Act itself. Obamacare gives states a choice. They can either run their own health insurance exchange where their residents may buy health insurance, and receive subsidies to help them pay for that insurance if they qualify, or they can allow the federal government to run that exchange for them. Yet the plaintiffs’ in this case uncovered a drafting error in the statute where it appears to limit the subsidies to individuals who obtain insurance through “an Exchange established by the State.” Randolph and Griffith’s opinion concludes that this drafting error is the only thing that matters. In their words,“a federal Exchange is not an ‘Exchange established by the State,’” and that’s it. The upshot of this opinion is that 6.5 million Americans will lose their ability to afford health insurance, according to one estimate.
Democrats major fear in 2014 mid terms was not energizing the Democratic base to vote.
Republican blunders, court decisions and the birth control issues my lessen this problem.
Democrats have done well defending women from the "War on Women" in the past.

Time to change the record. It's stuck.

We should blame all of our problems on the propagandists and the Federal Reserve System.

Israel wants to wipe the Palestinians off the map; they are being rocketed every day; they have no water or food and no way to escape the onslaught.

They continually depict Israel as the aggressors and Palestinians as the victims...not unintentionally.
34% of those polled also believe Fox News is "bad" even when they admit they never watch it despite its being rated as the most trusted news cable channel on television (according to the most recent Public Policy Polling survey) and O'Reilly still topping the list of the most trusted news commentator.
Thirty-five percent of those polled trust Fox more than any other news outlet with PBS in a distant second place at 14 percent and ABC News third at 11 percent.
(Just thought I'd give them another plug.)
Back to the 21st century?.

How is your evangelical wing of the repub. party going to run in 2014 and 2016.
Stay home, ban birth control, oppose food stamps, keep middle class from having health insurance......... etc?

Sorry crybaby but I don't pay rent to no one, and I'm lily white loser.Unlike you I have my beliefs and standards based on the actions of others..I don't like that either because I know they have only one agenda and that is their father land. Plain and simple. That also is one of the biggest problems in the political world today taking money. It all should be eliminated.

Quit you GD lying & I won't have to correct your posts.
So much for the money you thought you saved on Obamacare, libtard!

IN A MAJOR BLOW to ObamaCare, a federal appeals court rules against the legality of some subsidies issued to people through the Affordable Care Act exchanges.

ROTFLMAO!!!!

Can't wait until you get your notice!

Surprise!

We need to pass the bill before we read it!

All Hamas has to do is stop firing the missiles and get rid of them. Israel will stop when there is no longer a threat. What part of this can you not understand.
