They are PURE OBSTRUCTIONIST! This is 100% FACT as we seen during the entire Obama administration.
What I wish Obama had done is to allow the economy to fail so all you Republicans would have hurt financially. Republican Fire fighters and Police would have been laid off in the thousands. The stock market would of crashed into destruction. This is what I wish he allowed to happen.
But Obama didn't as he didn't want to see America suffering after the Bush financial collapse. FACT!!!!!
So, Yes in essence Obama assisted Republican voters as he borrowed Billions in order to stimulate the consumer spending in America which all Republican voters profited off in our nations worst recession!!!
How did they all repay Obama? By betraying him! They held onto over 3 Trillion dollars and wouldn't lend out a dime! The economy is now improving. We all knew that it would take many years to recover.
Your OBSTRUCTIONIST made it nearly impossible to recover. We need to vote Republicans out of office so we can bring America back to prosperity.
Both you and Just Facts financial portfolios have increased under Obama! How does this happen in the Nations worst recession in its entire history!
The Bush financial collapse was historic as it changed the world. It was a financial Sunami as Bush admits to! So what are you going to ignore Bushs admission?
LOL, typical double talking republican BS!
Hey Puke, you stated "The Republicans have not submitted not ONE Pro American jobs bill in the past ten year recession!!!!!"

That is an outright blatant LIE.... Get it, a LIE. Again, you are the very reason why the lie detector test is not admissible in our court system.

Oh, and your version of events that led up to the crisis is another BLATANT LIE.

Ok Stamos, here we go again. For your fisrt site.

"Although most House Democrats voted for the bill Thursday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)— who also voted for it — called the proposal “so meager” and much less effective than transportation funding bills being weighed in the House and Senate."

"Rep. Gary Peters (D-Mich.) introduced the amendment to shed more light, he said, on how many American jobs are being outsourced, as many multinational companies do not reveal where their employees are based. Yet data show that multinationals as a group reduced their domestic head counts by 2.9 million while adding 2.4 million jobs in other countries between 2000 and 2009."

That's right. So the Republicans DID "submit" a pro-jobs bill in the last 10 years and the Democrats in the Senate obstructed it. What part of that LIE do you not understand?

So the latest on the Obamacare debacle is that the payment system that is supposed to be incorporated into the website that will provide the government payments to insurers for the people that qualify for subsidizing isn't even done. The insurers are now questioning if they want to get involved because they fear their payments from the government will be held up or won't be paid at all. This is in addition to the website not having the security audit done yet because they're waiting for the website to be completed.

To summarize...your information is opened up for hackers to take and use at their discretion and insurers may start backing out because they fear they may not get paid.

AWESOME JOB DEMOCRATS!! You are only 3 years into this process for Obamacare!!

Its a damn good thing that Obama and the Democrats that controlled both houses during his first two years shoved Obamacare up everyone's ass...he has done a great thing by providing coverage for 12 million people...it doesn't matter what he's doing to the hundreds of thousands already having to look for new insurance and the 50 to 100 million that will be have to look for insurance next year.

Make sure you all contact your Democrats and let them know how much you appreciate them looking out for you.

I would suspect that you hold the title for being the least informed President this country has ever had. Since you never have any knowledge of anything material to our country, I would say that you really don't need the job you have and you should give it to someone that will take the time to become informed.

I think if it was a much more costly plan (Boehner makes 223K a year) and is a chain smoker, you would be hearing about it, you aren't!!!

What was supposed to be a stunt, proves factless.

"Thanks to provisions in the Affordable Care Act that Republicans demanded, members of Congress will have to sign up for health care coverage through exchange marketplaces. That’s not really the point of the exchanges – they’re largely intended for the uninsured and small businesses looking to cover their employees – but GOP lawmakers had a political point to make, and this is the result.



With that in mind, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) wrote a blog post yesterday, highlighting his own personal experience when he “sat down to try and enroll in the DC exchange.”


Like many Americans, my experience was pretty frustrating. After putting in my personal information, I received an error message. I was able to work past that, but when I went to actually sign up for coverage, I got this “internal server error” screen.[…]



Despite multiple attempts, I was unable to get past that point and sign up for a health plan. We’ve got a call into the help desk. Guess I’ll just have to keep trying…

As it turns out, his willingness to “keep trying” was a good idea. Boehner, who is not yet eligible for Medicare,“called the DC Health Link help line,” and a “few hours later,” the process was complete. He’d signed up for health insurance.



Oddly enough, the Republican House Speaker didn’t offer any details about his new health care plan. One would assume that if he’d experienced “sticker shock,” or been stuck choosing a plan that cost far more than his current coverage, Boehner would have mentioned it. Indeed, he would have been eager to mention it, since it would advance his larger political goals.



So why was Boehner silent on this point? Probably because he was able to save some money on an affordable plan – despite being a 64-year-old chain-smoker.



This was supposed to be a little p.r. stunt, intended to reinforce the Republican message. It’s almost certainly why the Speaker invited a photographer to document him going through the process. And while it’s a shame Boehner was one of many who ran into website trouble, I have to say his experience doesn’t sound that bad – he called a help line, signed up for insurance, and likely saved some money, all over the course of an afternoon.



Are Americans supposed to hear this and think,“Quick, repeal this monstrosity before it crushes another person’s dreams”?

About those cancelation notices...

"When pressed for specifics, the Affordable Care Act’s detractors tend to focus on two main areas of concern: the website and the cancelation notices. The website is obviously important and administration officials are doing what they can. Maybe it’ll be fixed quickly, maybe it won’t – we’ll find out soon enough.



But the cancelation notices are a different kind of concern. As we’ve discussed, we’re talking about a very small percentage of the population that has coverage through the individual, non-group market and are now finding that their plans are being scrapped. When the House Republican “playbook” looks for people saying,“Because of Obamacare, I lost my insurance,” these are the folks they’re talking about.



But the story about these “victims” of reform is coming into sharper focus all the time.


Only a small sliver of the Americans who buy their own health insurance plans and may be seeing them canceled under Obamacare will pay higher premiums, according to an analysis released Thursday.



More than seven in 10 Americans who purchase health plans directly will get subsidies to help pay for coverage under the Affordable Care Act, according to the report by Families USA, a Washington-based organization that supports the health care reform law.

“It is important to keep a perspective about the small portion of the population that might be adversely affected,” said Ron Pollack, executive director of Families USA.“That number is a tiny fraction of the 65 million non-elderly people with pre-existing health conditions who will gain new protections through the Affordable Care Act. It is also a small fraction of the tens of millions of uninsured Americans who can also get help.”



Let’s put this another way. A tiny percentage of consumers will receive cancelation notices, and of them, more than 70% will get new, more secure coverage that ends up costing them less.



They’re not, in other words, victims. They’re beneficiaries.



In fairness, many of them won’t know this for a while because they can’t yet go to healthcare.gov and see how much they’ll benefit, but we’re talking about the health care system itself – for all the talk about the cancelations, by a 2-to-1 margin, these folks are going to be better off, including receiving subsidies through the Affordable Care Act.



In reference to the remaining folks who’ll pay more, Pollack told the Huffington Post,“That’s approximately 1.5 million people, and that’s not trivial and I don’t in any way suggest that we shouldn’t be concerned about that group. But … the number of people at risk of this becoming a problem is considerably smaller than the tens of millions of people who are going to get substantial help.”



And here’s the larger question: if the evidence had pointed in the other direction, and 71% of these folks were poised to pay more, not less, would the story have gotten more attention? Would the coverage be dominated by “More bad news for Obamacare”?



This week, after years in which Obamacare critics said the law would fail to control costs, we saw remarkable evidence that the law is succeeding in controlling costs. Didn’t hear much about that? Neither did I.



I’m starting to get the sense that there’s an approved narrative – the Affordable Care Act is failing and is in deep trouble – and developments that point in the opposite direction are filtered out, while developments that reinforce the thesis are trumpeted.



The debate is often confusing enough, but this isn’t helping."

Keep up the whining over some 1.5% of the population and ignore the 36 Million who will soon be covered!!

Cause, when it's all said and done, it's going to work and more people will have coverage and protection from abusive insurance companies!!!

Really sux huh!

About the costs, you just keep this thread on top cause one day, you're not going to want to call it Obamacare anymore!!!!

"The slowing growth in health care costs isn’t just a fluke or a remnant of the recession, the White House asserted in a report released Wednesday, but rather a result of reforms in Obamacare.

The White House report is an attempt to shape the debate over how much credit should be given to the Affordable Care Act for the growth in health care spending dropping to its lowest levels since the 1960s.

"During the debate on health care, even before the Affordable Care Act passed, there were widespread demands that officials do something about escalating costs. If “Obamacare” was to be a long-term success, it would have to help reduce health care spending.



It looks like the law’s many detractors will have to cross another complaint off their list.


Health care spending since the 2010 passage of the Affordable Care Act has risen by 1.3% a year, the lowest rate ever recorded, and health care inflation is the lowest it has been in 50 years, a report released Wednesday by the White House shows.



An economy hobbled by the recession and 2008 economic crisis played a role in some of the reduced spending growth, officials said, but the report cited “structural change” caused, in part, by the law.

How good are the number figures? According to a new report published by Jason Furman, chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, over the last three years – the period since “Obamacare” became the law of the land – per capita health care spending has grown at a rate of 1.3%.“This is the lowest rate on record for any three-year period and less than one-third the long-term historical average stretching back to 1965,” Furman noted.



Moreover, thanks to health care reform, inflation for health care goods and services is “currently running at just 1 percent on a year-over-year basis, the lowest level since January 1962.”



How do we know the Affordable Care Act deserves credit, and this isn’t just a cyclical shift, or a reduction resulting from weak economic growth?


“The fact that the health cost slowdown has persisted so long even as the economy is recovering, the fact that it is reflected in health care prices – not just utilization or coverage, and the fact that it has also shown up in Medicare – which is more insulated from economic trends, all imply that the current slowdown is the result of more than just the recession and its aftermath,” the report stated.“Rather, the slowdown appears to reflect ‘structural’ changes in the United States health care system, a conclusion consistent with a substantial body of recent research.”



The ACA is a contributing factor because it includes reductions in Medicare overpayment to private insurers and medical providers, and incentives for hospitals and doctors to improve their quality of care, the report stated.



“Recent research implies that reforms to Medicare will have ‘spillover effects’ that reduce costs and improve quality system-wide,” the report stated.“Accounting for ‘spillovers’ implies that the ACA’s effect on health care price inflation may be much larger than previously understood.”

In terms of the real-world impact, this means more affordable care for consumers and more savings in government spending.



In other words, it’s the sort of thing Republicans should be pretty happy about – which generally means they’ll ignore the news and/or issue a press release declaring the opposite, assuming no one will know the difference.
