Obamacare will be broke before it ever begins.

"Tens of thousands of health care professionals, union workers and community activists hired as "navigators" to help Americans choose Obamacare options starting Oct. 1 could earn $20 an hour or more, according to new regulations issued Wednesday."

"It is still not clear how many navigators will be required. California, however, provides a hint. It wants 21,000.

That could be an expensive proposition. The proposed rules, now open for public comment, suggest an estimated pay of $20-$48 an hour."

Looks like it will take appox 500,000 navigators for all States. At Average of $25-30 an hour that come out to $14 million an hour.

Now everyone knows that group will milk the taxpayer for everthing it can so we'll looking at maybe $800 million.

Government is incompetent, can't close the borders and can't get Obamacare up and running after 3 years.


The law calls for a new insurance marketplace specifically for small businesses, starting next year. But in most states, employers will not be able to get what Congress intended: the option to provide workers with a choice of health plans. They will instead be limited to a single plan.

This choice option, already available to many big businesses, was supposed to become available to small employers in January. But administration officials said they would delay it to 2015 in the 33 states where the federal government will be running insurance markets known as exchanges. And they will delay the requirement for other states as well.…

The administration cited “operational challenges” as a reason for the delay. As a result, it said, most small employers buying insurance through an exchange will offer just a single health plan to their workers next year.…

D. Michael Roach, who owns a women’s clothing store in Portland, Ore., said the delay was “a real mistake.”

“It will limit the attractiveness of exchanges to small business,” Mr. Roach said.“We would like to see different insurance carriers available to each of our 12 employees, who range in age from 21 to 62. You would have more competition, more downward pressure on rates, and employees would be more likely to get exactly what they wanted.”


“operational challenges”== Incompetent, a deadly disease of government workers.

It don't matter whether the right wingers are right or wrong at this point because Obama ran for office and was ELECTED AGAIN by the people of the United States. So your constant bikering everyday trying to disgrace him and his staff is getting you no where. So if he won, which he did, why can't you sit back and enjoy the ride. Things will go his way because he has the power to change things. That' what most of Americans wanted. Change from the fleecing of working class Americans by the wealthy that now owns the Majority of Congress. If you notice they really can't do anything without Obama signing their bills into law. Obama is a powerful man, most powerful man in the World in fact. Going on everyday with these scary little articals every day...day in day out in just rediculaus. Like the micro chip scare on the 23rd of March.....didn't happen and never will. Obama taking our guns?....didn't happen and never will. I'm telling you that you all are coming off as a bunch of fools. No one believes the right wing any more. You never know what the next lie or distrotion will be....but it's fun to watch. You all are like Charlie Brown waiting in the pumpkin patch for the great pumpkin. Yeah you can google and sound educated....You may have more education than I doo.....but I can teach you a lot of things you don't even know and have never heard of in your books.
I'm sorry, Doo, but your post is a perfect example of HOW Obama got reelected - even accounting for the fact you didn't vote. Too many people are as sadly uniformed or illinformed as you are. "sit back and enjoy the ride" -???- How do we sit back and watch this man and his policies tank our economy and destroy our healthcare system. The ACA is a disaster and more and more people are waking up to it. Over 1,200 companies have received waivers from ACA requirements and almost half of the states have refused to set up the exchanges necessary to implement the ACA. And let's not forget the housing crisis that the Left loves to try to blame on Bush but that actually can be traced all the way to Democrats at every step of the way starting with Carter to the Clinton Justice Dept to Christopher Dodd and Barney Frank with their sweet heart deals and campaign contributions that led them to deny the Bush administrations efforts to increase regulation on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. And now, guess what, Obama wants to relax requirements for people to qualify for refinancing of their home loans by including provisions that would, among other things, "eliminate employment and income verification requirements". THAT is more of the IDIOCY that got us into the housing crisis in the first place.

But you just keep on thinking that Republicans are all that is evil in the world and Democrats are all sweetness and light and just care SO much more about people. This has probably been a complete waste of time anyway, you aren't interested in the truth and the facts.
Democrats - Good Republicans - Bad That's all you think you need to know.

Your Republican President Bush depleated this Country out of it's wealth by giving the wealthy tax breaks and starting two wars. Don't blame Obama. You see you aren't even iterested in the truth are you? I see Republicans as the party of crooks that work for the wealthy. The are liars and distorters of the real facts....just like you! While you are worrying, I will be enjoying the ride.

You never felt that way until Obama started preaching his hate in order to divide and conquer. You can deny it, but you aren't being honest. Obama, by design, has divided the parties, classes and races. You are getting a big pay off, so you can't even see it. Your pay off is he makes you feel better about yourself and the choices you've made. Your statement about "....enjoying the ride" proves what most of us have been posting. You want what you can GET from our country. TAKER.

<quoted text>LMAO...The wealth envy-itis shows it's ugly head AGAIN...

"Yea; it is so unfair to ask Right Wingers to pay their share."

Right wingers pay the same tax rates as the clueless and uneducated, don't they? Use the same forms and tax tables, don't they? Or, are you saying right wingers use different forms and tables?

Are right wingers the ONLY ones that make a lot of money? Are you whining about what Buffet or certain movies stars pay in taxes?

"able to pay only 15% or less tax rate on that 89.5 BILLION dollar family fortune."

Income taxes are on income (duh), not wealth. Their fortune has already been taxed. Duh.

"15% or less tax rate"

Oh, you mean the capital gains rate that is available to ALL tax payers? BTW, how do you know what an individual's tax rate is, it's not public information, although corporate tax rates can be easily found.

"Might have to pay taxes at the same rate we working people do."

They do. They use the same forms and tax table the rest of us do.

Your anti-wealth fury is targeted at people that are doing things legally and within the rules. You don't like the rules, probably because you don't understand them and the rationale for them...
What an imbecilic statement - the capital gains rate is available to all taxpayers - is it possible to make a statement more transparently disingenuous than that ?

Here's another transparently stupid statement you must agree with.

Hey, the opportunity to get special tax treatment by investing in a hedge fund is available to all taxpayers.

Just prove your net worth exceeds $1,000,000.00 and you annual income exceeds $200,000.00 each of the last 2 years and will exceed $200,000.00 the current and future year.

So you see - All Americans can take advantage of lower tax rates for hedge fund investors.

God help us - these Right Wing folks actually believe they make sense.

Solving the Healthcare Crisis the Old-Fashioned Way
by wbramh Oct 02, 2011 8:03pm PDT

Back in 1996, one of America’s lower-paid healthcare company executives was Allen Wise, a VP at United Healthcare. His annual salary was a paltry $2,697,751.

That was then - or “the lean years” as they’re remembered in executive board rooms.

Just nine years later (in 2005), the same Dr. McGuire (still stuck at stingy United Healthcare)“earned”$124,80 0,000 in salary alone.

Unfortunately for McGuire, 1996 was to be his last year milking the system due to his standout felonious role in a major stock options scandal (see "Legal Issues").

The SEC fined McGuire $468 million, which I assume came off the top of his parting gift from UH, a $1.1 BILLION (with a capital “B”) golden parachute. It was (at the time) the largest parting gift ever awarded any corporate chief executive in the history of mankind; in fact, probably the largest since the Cretaceous Period, but accurate corporate record-keeping suffered even back then.

Here's another source ;

McGuire's payday is a shame, if not a crime.
Article by: Neal St. Anthony , Star Tribune

Updated: April 21, 2006 - 11:08 PM

You could view the conciliatory gesture last week by UnitedHealth Group CEO Bill McGuire to voluntarily forgo any more millions in option grants as a first try at a low-cost settlement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

It may take a lot more than that.

The company told the Star Tribune this week that the board of directors had to approve the selected dates and that the practice was halted in 2005.

"Dollar Bill" has made lots of news with cash-and-stock paydays that have topped $100 million in recent years -- and he's still sitting atop stock options valued at $1.6 BILLION.

Still, ISS said, it's concerned that the board's compensation committee has failed in its duty to "provide oversight to the executive pay practices and administered a flawed employment contract. The over $1 BILLION that Dr. McGuire currently holds in stock grants.

McGuire and his executive crew have set new standards for wealth that have drawn envy as well as ire from country clubs and executive suites nationally.

"Even if there's nothing illegal at United, this is the extreme of obscenity in corporate governance," said Brother Louis DeThomasis, the chancellor of St. Mary's University, a onetime successful entrepreneur and a veteran board member who writes and lectures about business ethics. "We must reward excellence in performance. But handing people eternal paradise ...$1.6 BILLION worth of options is a bit much."

You voted for Obama, you own him.
Are you smarter than a 5th grader?
How many poor folks are going to be able to complete this form?
"Applying for benefits under President Barack Obama's health care overhaul could be as daunting as doing your taxes.
The government's draft application runs 15 pages for a three-person family. An outline of the online version has 21 steps, some with additional questions.
Seven months before the Oct. 1 start of enrollment season for millions of uninsured Americans, the idea that getting health insurance could be as easy as shopping online at Amazon or Travelocity is starting to look like wishful thinking.
At least three major federal agencies, including the IRS, will scrutinize your application. Checking your identity, income and citizenship is supposed to happen in real time, if you apply online.
That's just the first part of the process, which lets you know if you qualify for financial help. The government asks to see what you're making because Obama's Affordable Care Act is means-tested, with lower-income people getting the most generous help to pay premiums.
Once you're finished with the money part, actually picking a health plan will require additional steps, plus a basic understanding of insurance jargon.
And it's a mandate, not a suggestion."
http://www.turnto23.com/lifestyle/health/appl...
Well that's just ridiculous! I didn't know THAT about the Affordable Care Act. I'm about to change my mind entirely on the whole affair! This makes me MAD!!

You mean we might have to fill out a form???!!
And we might actually have to know what our health insurance policy covers?!!???

Do they REALLY expect people to give a crap about their health and to actually pay attention to what they are spending their money on?!!

The NERVE of Obama! That's just un-American.
