Obamacare, aka the Affordable Care Act, works, contrary to what the billionaire Koch brothers say in all their TV ads run by "Americans for Prosperity." The Koch brothers are against any public interest program, be it Medicare or Social Security, or universal health care coverage such as Obamacare. They hate Obama, and they certainly can afford to promote their political goals. I'm sure they have great health care coverage, but do you think they'd help the 15 percent of Americans (45 million people) who have no health insurance with their health care costs?
The Affordable Care Act already has added nine million Americans, who previously had no coverage or had inadequate coverage, to the rolls of the insured, either by people buying lower cost individual coverage on the exchanges or by the expansion of Medicaid in those states that accepted the federal funding for the expansion. But many Republican-led states, like North Carolina, refused the expansion, despite the fact 100 percent of the added cost is covered by the feds for the first three years and 90 percent forever after. Many such state governments have done all they can to interfere with the implementation by making it difficult for people to get information and understand the new law.
But under Obamacare, no longer can insurance companies refuse coverage to someone with a pre-existing condition or drop people from coverage because they reached their maximum limit, and it bars insurance companies from denying coverage when people get sick. So, more and more people who had no coverage, or who had inadequate coverage, now are getting coverage because of Obamacare. And remember, much of Obamacare, that is, the Affordable Care Act, are things that Republicans in Congress required in order to be passed, and in fact, most of the program is the very same program that (Mitt) Romney introduced and which was approved by the legislature in Massachusetts, where it has proven to be very successful. It's just that Republicans didn't propose this; Democratic President Obama did.

Conservatives Shocked Obamacare Is Working Like It's Designed To
The most dangerous thing about Obamacare is the American people might like it.- Stephen Colbert
If Obamacare was REALLY so terrible, would every single conservative horror story and whining fit turn out to be made up and based on nothing? What kind of news consumer LIKES being lied to? They get fooled again and again and AGAIN by the same tricks. I don't understand what is wrong with these people. Is it just that they are old?
As you undoubtedly are aware, the very same strategy was part of Bush's Medicare Part D. It is designed so that companies don't have to overestimate their expenses. Those that do better than the average pay into the pot and those who do worse take out. It ends up with the government either paying very little or actually, as the article makes clear for people with normal reading comprehension, gaining from it.

Hello there, my name is Valtron. I am the IRS Storm-trooper that resides in your rotted out imagination. I came to tell that we now have captured your frail old mother. We originally thought that we were going to have the Cheney waterboarding on her to obtain some good data on you...yes we still use the Cheney board despite the controversy its still the most reliable model. Anyway it turns out that we didn't need the Cheney at all...because your mother is singing like a bird. In fact we can't shut her up and wow does she ever have a low opinion of you buddy...man she actually hates your guts and she telling us about your antisocial disorders and your general lack of empathy for fellow humans ...man she really throwing you under the bus. I will finish the interogation interview and then I will let you know how it turns out soon...

Barack Hussein Obama's hypocritical directive: Do as I say, not as I do.
Obama Plays Water-Guzzling Desert Golf Courses Amid California Drought
Feb. 17, 2014
After preaching shared sacrifice to assuage the California water shortage, Obama has played some of the country's thirstiest golf courses.
President Barack Obama traveled to California on Friday to highlight the state’s drought emergency at two events near Fresno, calling for shared sacrifice to help manage the state’s worst water shortage in decades.
He then spent the rest of the weekend enjoying the hospitality of some of the state’s top water hogs: desert golf courses.
#56064 Feb 22, 2014
It is certainly the sole fault and responsibility of Barrack H. Obama that:
1) Golf courses and cities were built in American deserts.
2) It hasn't rained much in California.
3)_________Fill in the blank for whatever else you can think of).
The cities in Arizona and Nevada consume huge quantities of water and electricity for no good reason - but somehow by playing golf Obama is now to blame for the weather too?
This experiment in greed and stupidity that we call America sure is funny.

The Obamacare lipstick is wearing off.
‘Are they going to have to start over?’ CBS’ Bob Schieffer grills Dem governor over Obamacare
CBS reporter Bob Schieffer lambasted Obamacare in an interview with Maryland Democratic Gov. Martin O’Malley on Sunday, saying the law “does not appear to work” and asking the governor if the Obama administration is “going to have to start over.”
O’Malley appeared on CBS’“Face the Nation” to discuss where his state stands on implementing Obamacare. But Schieffer seemed more interested in complaining about the healthcare law itself.
“One of the things that does not appear to work, or has had a hard time even getting off the — off the floor, getting started, is the president’s healthcare plan,” Schieffer began.“There’s no other way to look at it: this roll out was a disaster. Where are you on that, and how much do you think that’s going to hurt Democrats?”

If Obamacare Is So Bad, Why Can’t The Right Wingers Find Real Losers Under Obamacare?
Republicans have trying to scare voters with stories about people who are losers under the Affordable Care Act. They mention them in speeches, run ads about them, and put them on Fox. Each and every time this has happened reporters checking into the facts found that rather than being losers the people turned out to actually be benefiting from Obamacare. Each and every time. Considering how hard they are trying to show that Obamacare is terrible, you would think that if there are actual losers out there they would find some.
The latest case, which is quite typical of all the others, is put out by Americans For Prosperity in Michigan and makes these claims:
“I was diagnosed with leukemia. I found out I only have a 20 percent chance of surviving. I found this wonderful doctor and a great health care plan. I was doing fairly well fighting the cancer, fighting the leukemia, and then I received a letter. My insurance was canceled because of Obamacare. Now, the out-of-pocket costs are so high, it’s unaffordable. If I do not receive my medication, I will die. I believed the president. I believed I could keep my health insurance plan. I feel lied to. It’s heartbreaking for me. Congressman Peters, your decision to vote Obamacare jeopardized my health.”
Glenn Kessler looked into the facts. Once again it turned out that the claims were false. The Republicans are lying yet again.
The patient was able to obtain a plan which her doctor participated in. Her premiums are significantly lower, offsetting the higher out of pocket expenses. She also could have purchased a plan with higher premiums and lower out of pocket expenses. Compared with her previous plan, the new plan not only has lower premiums and an out-of-pocket maximum, it has better coverage for chemotherapy.
With the right wing groups repeatedly having to lie to make claims that people are being hurt under Obamacare, it has come to the point where Kevin Drum writes he is “beginning to think there’s not actually a single person in America who’s been harmed by Obamacare.” If there were, you would think that the right wing groups would be able to come up with real examples.

Even Democratic supporter Sen. John McCain laughs at serial liar Susan Rice's denials of Obama administration Benghazi fabrications.
Is anyone in the Obama administration NOT a shameless liar?
‘I’m almost speechless’: McCain laughs at Susan Rice’s ‘embarrassing’ Benghazi denial
Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain scoffed at National Security Adviser Susan Rice’s Sunday statement that she regrets nothing about her misleading Benghazi talking points, saying he was “almost speechless” and that her continued deflection is “a little embarrassing, to tell you the truth.”
McCain appeared on CBS’“Face the Nation” Sunday to discuss the apparent revolution in Ukraine. But host Bob Schieffer also asked the senator about Rice’s assertion that any claim of a deliberate misrepresentation of the attack — by her or others in the administration — was “patently false.”
“I’m almost speechless,” a laughing McCain responded.“because it’s patently obvious, first of all, that Susan Rice had no reason to be on the program. She had no involvement in it. Second of all, she read talking points — that we are now beginning to believe came from the White House — which were absolutely false. We now know that the CIA station chief on the ground sent a message immediately saying,‘Not — NOT — a spontaneous demonstration.’”
“And of course the information was totally misleading, totally false,” McCain added.“And for Susan Rice to say such a thing — I think it’s a little embarrassing, to tell you the truth.”

1.Benghazi... You're kidding right? There's been umpteen investigations including those by Darrell Issa and we've got no evidence of a deliberate cover-up or lie. In fact we've got the exact opposite from an in depth investigation by the New York Times!
2.ObamaCare... if the greatest lie is simply that the president didn't tell those with junk insurance that they won't be able to keep their plans then I for one am willing to live with that... and compared to actual self-serving lies told by Presidents before Obama I'm sure that the healthcare thing won't rate a blip in history..
3.Inability to forge consensus with Republicans? You're not even remotely serious. The Republicans need to forge a consensus with themselves first. They have to arrive at a mature adult consensus within their own ranks. In case you haven't noticed the Republican have decided to do nothing for the rest of the year (it's only February and the Repubs are done for the year) because they cannot agree on anything. The most do-nothing congress in the history of the republic... they couldn't even pass a farm bill! Laughable.
4. No Budget... The speaker ran away from a grand bargain. The poor guy couldn't get his side to agree to a deal that Democrats absolutely hated...
5. On Syria... you're just clutching at straws. The Chemical weapons are being destroyed as we speak without a single American missile being fired or American live lost. Some failure.
For the rest... you've got nothing. All the figures you quote are down to GW Bush's rank incompetence in starting an expensive war, cutting taxes, implement a big medicare plan that wasn't paid for and then crashing the economy. When the President took over we were shedding jobs like no man's business, the banking system was about to crash, the housing market was pretty much dead... all have been turned around without an ounce of help from the Republicans... in fact by implementing sequestration at the time of still fragile recovery they made things worse! That's before we factor in the government closure!!
All I can say is WOW!

What FOX NEWS didn't want to tell this story when it happened, now they focus on Benghazi.....
Updated 3/2/2006 9:30:23 PM ET
KARACHI, Pakistan — A suicide attacker rammed a car packed with explosives into a vehicle carrying an American diplomat in Pakistan’s largest city, killing four people — including the diplomat — ahead of President Bush’s visit to Pakistan.
Bush condemned the attack near the U.S. Consulate and a luxury hotel in Karachi, and said “terrorists and killers” would not prevent him from going to Pakistan on the final leg of his tour of South Asia.
“We have lost at least one U.S. citizen in the bombing, a foreign service officer, and I send our country’s deepest condolences to that person’s loved ones and family,” Bush said at a news conference in neighboring India , without naming the diplomat.
The American was identified by Pakistan officials as David Foy, Reuters reported. His driver, a Pakistani working for the consulate, and a Pakistani paramilitary trooper in the attack were also killed. A fourth body has not been identified, but police suspect it to be that of a suicide bomber.
Now back to FOXED news with Sean Hannity and the Benghazi scandal..........take it away Sean !
#56076 Feb 24, 2014
But yet there was no money wasted on hearings , this was swept under the rug. The GOP was fine with killing a US diplomat David Foy.

Obama’s ‘attack’ on Medicare Part D
The Obama administration is launching an “attack” on the Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D programs as part of Obamacare that will result in higher costs and fewer health care options for seniors, according to a U.S. House subcommittee.
The administration is quietly introducing “policies that would undermine the integrity and success of the Medicare Part D program” according to the subcommittee. President Bush signed Medicare Part D into law in 2003 to subsidize prescription drug costs for Medicare beneficiaries.
