Robert Reich on Obamacare: Its Working Despite Misinformation
Its Working Despite Misinformation
Robert Reich, the secretary of labor in the Clinton administration, is Chancellor's professor of public policy at the University of California, Berkeley and the co-creator of the film "Inequality for All."
Early indications are the Affordable Care Act is working. With less than two weeks remaining before the March 31 deadline for coverage this year, five million people have already signed up. After decades of rising percentages of Americans lacking health insurance, the uninsured rate has dropped to its lowest levels since 2008...health care costs have slowed dramatically. The new law may well be contributing to this slowdown by reducing Medicare overpayments to medical providers and private insurers, and creating incentives for hospitals and doctors to improve quality of care.
But a lot about the Affordable Care Act needs fixing especially the widespread confusion and misinformation that continues to surround it. For example, a majority of business owners with fewer than 50 workers still think theyre required to offer insurance or pay a penalty.(In fact, the law applies only to businesses with 50 or more employees who work more than 30 hours a week). And many companies with fewer than 25 workers still dont realize that if they offer plans they can qualify for subsidies in the form of tax credits.
Many individuals remain confused and frightened. Forty-one percent of Americans who are still uninsured say they plan to remain that way. They believe it will be cheaper to pay a penalty than buy insurance. Many of these people are unaware of the subsidies available to them. Signups have been particularly disappointing among Hispanics.
But even here, remedies could evolve. States might use their state-run exchanges to funnel so many applicants to a single, low-cost insurer that the insurer becomes, in effect, a single payer. Vermont is already moving in this direction, and California may be next. In this way, the Affordable Care Act could become a back door to a single-payer system every conservatives worst nightmare.
Yep, better and better every day and by November and 2016 Americans will see through the lies and love it just in time for HILLARY to tweak it to perfection. Voters won't forget. Watch for it.....

Here you go UNION HATER tn troll.
Richard Trumka Explains How Unions Close The Wage Gap For Women
From this Tuesday's The Economy Summit hosted by The Atlantic, AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka explains to Margaret Carlson how just belonging to a union closes the wage gap for women.
From The Atlantic's The Economy Summit 2014 which aired this Tuesday, the AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka was asked by Bloomberg's Margaret Carlson what labor unions were doing to "get parity for women and minorities on wages."
As Trumka explained, just belonging to a union takes care of that wage gap, because it doesn't exist, and women are paid the same as their male counterparts if they're working the same job. He also read off a list of statistics on the wage gaps for unionized and non-unionized workers which you can read more about here and here.
ANYONE who has a job unionized or not has the UNIONS to thank for fighting their battles for fair wages, safe working environment, safety gear, 40 hour week, overtime, etc. etc. etc.
Your welcome dumbass.
Send that VW plant to the union friend state of KENTUCKY. Sucker

Heard of it?? I've read the documentation of the experiments that were done. Oak Ridge did experiments also. The thing about both is that they are disclosed and documented. So these test subjects are the same as the conspiracy of mass killing Americans that no one can prove for the past 30 years?
As the man said to Dan Rather before his attack- What's the frequency !!!!!

Hey loser lemmings, looks like your heroes are tanking. Maybe they can get caribou Barbie palin to get them a show.
Happy, Happy, Happy! Duck Dynasty Ratings Fall To SIXTEEN-MONTH Low!
Its the beginning of the end for Phil Robertsons Bible-banging pretend Christian flock of fauxbilly! Ratings for the show have been falling steadily since Phil Robertson was fired and rehired following remarks that black people were happier under Jim Crow, and a number of incredibly homophobic remarks.
During Robertsons time away, which amounted to a holiday vacation, some digging caused a few more skeletons to fall from Duck Dads closet. Footage surfaced of Robertson uttering anti-LGBT vitriol at a Pennsylvania church. Shortly after, a video was discovered, in which Robertson suggested that men go out and grab themselves a wife when she is 15 or 16 years oldbefore she is an old maid at 20. Attempting to be all-inclusive, Robertson also very openly hates the Chinese and Muslims.
Regardless, the stupid part of America heard the word Jesus and thought of nothing else, as real Christians looked on in wonder at the hypocrisy and hatred displayed by those who elect to constantly embarrass them. In fact, apparently unbothered by their modern day Jesus hatred of the Chinese, the Real Murikans dumped boatloads of money into China just to show their support for their God-fearingChristian role model who is totally not racist or homophobic at all
As AATTP reported heavily on the disaster that was A&Es handling of the Robertson situation, we received quite a bit of hilarious backlash. One white trash online rag mag defended Phil Robertsons remarks regarding the proper marryin age men should consider when choosing a mate, claiming He is simply stating that when couples marry younger, they have a better chance of staying together.
A reader informed us just today that we have been directly connected to the Illuminati by some of the Alex Jones crowd, as well. One AATTP writer even received an incredibly stupid death threat from a guy who says Phil Robertson is just like [him].
Despite the enthusiastic support from fans because apparently the word Jesus makes you wonderful no matter what you do, Duck Dynasty is facing hard times.
For the first time in over a year, the show has dipped below 5 million viewers. Wednesdays show averaged 4.7 million, a 16 month low for the show. While some may note that this is still a lot of viewers, for comparisons sakelast summer, the show broke ratings records with 11.7 million viewers.
All-in-all it seems that public opinion is catching up with Duck Dad and crew.
I'm sure you suckers will still run out for their products and stock up on those dvd's. Guess he is a liability for ratings now and like chicken man should of watched where they displayed their racism and bigotry.

Wake Up America: How The GOP Became the White Supremacy Party!
Paul Ryan is still working on defending his racial comments with more failed attempts. At a town hall meeting in Wisconsin yesterday, Ryan stuttered his way through his comebacks as members of this so-called inner city laid into him. His statement today wasnt much better:
After reading the transcript of yesterday mornings interview, it is clear that I was inarticulate about the point I was trying to make. I was not implicating the culture of one communitybut of society as a whole.
So for Ryan, the culture problem doesnt only exist in Wisconsins inner cities but rather black communities that make up society as a whole. If this is to be taken as an apology, it lacks luster. The Republican Party upholds its standards based on the foundation of white supremacy. How could racism not be embedded in his statement on inner cities?
Republicans are using degrading phrases such as inner cities and the real culture problem to lead voters away from everything the Democratic Party stands for and supports (equal rights), and create hostility from the white voters toward the African American race.
Colorblind racist, a more modernized term for Paul Ryan than simply racist, is a way for white people to deny that racism is still a social issue in our country, rather blaming their limited opportunities on culture or laziness Ryan would say they genetically inherited.
Ryan is playing the victim here. He used racist terms, but since he never actually said,bad black culture or black people are lazy, he is actually getting people to believe that he is at no fault. This cannot be perceived as truth: white supremacy was built on privilege of white males over black males by using force, violence, and power. Sixty-one year-old, Alfonso Gardner was right when he told Ryan at the meeting,You meant what you said.
Educating Republicans: Why You Cant Spell KKK Without the Letters G-O-P
They know its bad to be a racist, and so they will deny the white hood while hiding under the deflection that Democrats wore it first way back in the late 1860s when it was founded by six veterans of the Confederate Army. Yes, Democrats were a big part of the original KKK over 150 years ago. But Democrats were on the other side in 1948 with the addition of civil rights as a campaign plank and on into the fights for Civil Rights in the 60s, losing Southern white voters to the Republican Party. But really, what matters when you are voting is where each party stands TODAY.(The KKK had a resurgence in the 20s by white protestants angry at industrialization and immigration and high on Prohibition and the Bible, and a third big incarnation in reaction to the Civil Rights movement.)
KKK still exists, and it aligns with the Republican party issues-wise, even if its membership is somewhat pathetic compared to its glory days. Well, it seems the two organizations have that in common as well. To put this in terms and using logic Republicans can understand, you cant spell KKK without the letters G-O-P.
GOP = racism

Ari, I posted something similar but AL posted one on Bill Gates today. I saw on the net NBC news : Weather Modification, report done few years ago.
Then I found out about WEATHER MODIFICATION BILL H.R. 2995 introduced June 20, 2005 (109th Congress)
Bill Gates invested 650 million in Global Warming Research, and he believes in chemtrails.
How people can't understand, that this people are fanatics thinking they're doing something good to help humanity and save us from the Global Warming Disaster.
BTW, research shows that, there are alot more barium and aluminum in California water.
Also people are sick with respiratory problems and in so many cases antibiotics don't help...
Thanks for the link Ari...

Former Obama Supporter Repents, Burns Obama Shirt on Video
When Carey Wedler was younger, she was a big Obama fan. The promise of change appealed to her. So she promoted Obama and voted for him.
But now that Carey is a little older and wiser, she doesnt feel the same. In fact, shes steaming mad that Obama has basically done the exact opposite of everything he promised.
So Carey recently made a video to address Obama directly. After running through some of the bad things Obama has done during his presidency, Carey says,Mr. Obama, you are the biggest fraud to ever be perpetrated on the American people.
Then she burns her old Obama t-shirt with Griegs Hall of the Mountain King playing in the background. Check out this epic video
She lost her hero. She showed 'em. lol.
Wake up dummies, you're losing the women.

Looks like Russia is pouring military aid in Iraq and afganistan and we are still there. Some of aid in military equipment is going north. Russia is starting to rebuild some of the factories they had left years ago. What a waste of our military lives and money. I would say they will not change the money in the county to rubles, because we still have truckloads of dollars over there somewhere. Lets get the hell home.

That bill did exist ...the point is government does know that something is going on.
The Global Warming groups are pushing something to be done...spraying in CA is going every day. Those groups believe that there is threat from global warming, like Al Gore, Bill Gates and so many others. People in CA don't have enough vitamin D because sun rays are blocked with chemical spraying.
There is investigation done by NBC news and chemtrails do exist and people in CA are sick with respiratory illness and so much aluminum and barium in water.
Believe it or not, but people in CA are sick.
There is also in KY, people posted pictures of chemtrails taken with cell phone cameras.
People in CA know difference between jets and this planes. We are not idiots. This is serious.
We know when we see one thin single line in the sky in so many direction. More than one plane is doing it. Believe what you want. Conspiracy is not what's in front of your eyes.
Government does experiment on their own people and wouldn't be the first or the last time.
