Maybe the Government shut down is not such a good idea. It's obvious B&C has not been getting his Government paid daily crazy pills.

"Poorest states rejected Medicaid expansion
The 26 states that have rejected the Medicaid expansion are home to about half of the country’s population, but about 68 percent of poor, uninsured blacks and single mothers. About 60 percent of the country’s uninsured working poor are in those states. Among those excluded are about 435,000 cashiers, 341,000 cooks and 253,000 nurses’ aides."

THat's a Republican Governors choice you dimwit!! Oh yeah, look over there, we refuse to accept Government programs THEN, blame someone else for the results!!!!

Only a braindead dimwit would believe this BS!

Obviously, in a nation as large as the United States, there will be plenty of anecdotal evidence to bolster just about every possible argument, but Sy Mukherjee talked to an Arkansas man yesterday who offered a perspective that ought to terrify Republicans.

Butch Matthews is a 61-year-old former small business owner from Little Rock, Arkansas who used to wake up every morning at 4 A.M. to deliver canned beverages to retailers before retiring in 2010. A lifelong Republican, he was heavily skeptical of the Affordable Care Act when it first passed. "I did not think that Obamacare was going to be a good plan, I did not think that it was going to help me at all," he told ThinkProgress over the phone.

But after doing a little research, Matthews eventually realized how much the law could help him. And on Tuesday, his local Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) provider confirmed that he would be able to buy a far better plan than his current policy while saving at least $13,000 per year through Arkansas' Obamacare marketplace.

Matthews assumed he wouldn't like the Affordable Care Act, but he also didn't like his current plan, the price of which kept climbing while covering fewer costs.

So he got the facts on his own, signed up through an exchange, and is poised to save an enormous amount of money.

Matthews told Mukherjee he would encourage other Obamacare skeptics to "learn more about it before they start talking bad about it." He added, "I still am a very strong Republican, but this ... I'm so happy that this came along....[T]his is going to be a great help for us."

It would appear, then, that Butch Matthews is the Republican Party's worst nightmare.

----------

Here's an older white Republican man in a "red" state who assumed the Affordable Care Act would be bad for him and his family. Then he got educated. Then he signed up. Now he's happy.

Why are Republicans furiously fighting to destroy the Affordable Care Act, especially right now? Because will be plenty of folks like Butch Matthews out there who'll have health care security and more money in their pockets as a result of the reform law.

And that's the exact opposite of the Republicans' partisan goals. The key is to kill Obamacare before Americans get to know and like it. People can argue about the merits of a movement predicated on the need for public ignorance, but it's clear that the better the public understands the Affordable Care Act, the worse it will be for the GOP.

Jonathan Cohn added today, "With every day, more and more people are discovering that Obamacare is a source of security -- and a way to get the heath care they have always needed. This is the reality Republicans have always feared. Confronted with the reality of Obamacare, rather than the right's distorted version of it, people will cherish it."

Yes, lets cherry pick the information without putting it into context.

Congratulations to Mr. Mathews for being one of the groups that won't be squashed by Obamacare. I am sincerely happy for him...meanwhile, many poor poeople cannot get access to coverage because the states in the above referenced link would have had to accept an expansion of Medicaid that economically would have killed them over time.

It is much the same with many other federal "unfunded" mandates that look great on the outside, but are awful once you agree to take the money. It is similar to the many school systems that told the federal government this year that they could keep their money for healthy school lunches because they were losing money "hand over fist" with the requirements for putting out food that the children were just throwing away.

The Feds should have looked more closely at the result from requiring these states to expand their Medicaid programs, and fund it correctly to actually help the poor, not just play lip service and pretend they were doing it correctly.

Just another example of the public only being given part of the facts to make Republicans look bad. If these states were to accept the money and then go broke trying to keep up the expanded system later, people would point at Republicans as being responsible for that too.

It should have been expected that the Democrats should have looked real closely at the states with the highest level of poor folks to see if their plan actually serves them with the requirements the states would have to live with...oh thats right...they didn't read the plan they voted on!!!

Pelosi said they would know whats in it AFTER they make it law.

OK let's boil it down Factless, first of all, it's a choice, the ones that are not accpeting it are Red States! THey may have all sorts of reasons or excuses but, truth is, cause they are Red States!

The States that have accepted it are affording it just fine!!!

But OK, your problem is the ACA, the ACA has nothing to do with keeping the Government open otherwise, the ACA goes on.

So, why shut down the Government by attaching a change to a law, that has nothing to do with the Budget?

Hostage Taking is what you're doing, side stepping the legislative process THAT YOU KNOW YOU CAN'T GET WHAT YOU WANT FROM. So it's EXTORTION TIME!!!

Excuses, really good excuses for causing real harm to the country!

Well, we should all expect that will be the case. It's just another example of take from those that have and give it to those that do not have...more Obama redistribution of wealth.

Massachusetts cheapest policy for people that will not receive any help for reduction in premiums is $ 1,000 per month. I guess it is an acceptable thing to continue to penalize anyone that makes something of themselves and tries to live well.

Stamos, you didn't teach your little toady 10%er here your famous "bwahaahaaabwabbba" or the dumbazz misspelled 'ha ha." If he's going to follow you on this board, you better teach him right.
10%er here just sees it as shutting down the Statue of Liberty. Stuck his head out his window and double-checked to see that the shit that rolled down the hill wouldn't affect him. The CDC working at half capacity and saying they may not be able to call up furloughed workers in time to help control an epidemic. "Muah ah ah ah ah..." WTF is that, 10%er? Happy that you're putting your nation's security in jeopardy? What militia do you belong to? Your always haranguing the candidate to answer questions, why can't you yourself?
