Where are these millions of people who have gotten insurance. I like how you try to pretend people are going to be able to afford anything on the exchange. You hang on to those lies as long as you can reality is going to set in with time.
"The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services last year estimated that between 50 million and 129 million Americans (19 to 50 percent) live with a chronic condition insurers might consider “pre-existing,” such as diabetes, heart disease, asthma or cancer. Last month, 57 percent of Americans surveyed in a Kaiser Family Foundation Health Tracking Poll said at least one member of their family has such a condition."

ALL OF THEM, because of the ACA, can NEVER BE DENIED insurance again, ever. Nevermind the 84 million Americans who could get insurance but couldn't afford it, which, your party STILL has no plan to help and doesn't give a shit about.

When you have a plan (which we all know won't happen for anything), then you can criticize the one passed by your elected representatives.

Look at the CBS poll dipwad. Yeah America does not like it and I do believe the government works for the people. Only sheeple like you need decisions made for them by the government.

Republicans who even mention polls are stupid. Use them when you're winning, not losing. But you've been losing every one of them for the past decade.

And stop pretending that a drop in Obama's poll numbers equate to an increase in acceptance of the idiot tea bagger-controlled GOP principle. The American people HAVE NOT WAVERED a drop when it comes to the fights they've chosen OVER improving the country and it's economy - abortion, gay marriage and cutting help for military members' families, the poor and education - they've been at between 9 and 27 percent approval since they started their obstructionism of improvement. But they still bitch about a lack of improvement, which is where the term "tea bag logic" came from.

What about the 84 million people who face bankruptcy EVERY DAY because of healthcare costs? F_ck them, right? Yeah, just like you did to the 900,000 US TROOPS whose ability to buy food you just cut.

Have you signed up yet, Duh? Or do you just want to keep giving your money to the insurance companies instead of covering your family for free?

WASHINGTON (Reuters)- President Barack Obama, who has portrayed himself as surprised by technical problems with the government's new health care website, was briefed earlier this year on a consultant's report that warned of possible widespread site failures, the White House said on Tuesday.

There have been weeks of questions about whether Obama understood the depth of the site's problems and let it open anyway, or simply "did not have enough awareness" of them, as the president stated at a November 14 news conference.

While the government says it is improving the portal's performance every day, security experts told a Republican sponsored congressional hearing Tuesday that in their opinions, it is still not sufficiently secure to be used confidently by consumers.

Yesterday, the House Homeland Security Committee published a video on their Youtube page highlighting a portion of the committee questioning Roberta Stempfley, acting assistant secretary of the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Cyber-security and Communications, who confirmed at least 16 attacks on the Affordable Care Act’s portal Healthcare.gov website in 2013.

Roberta Stempfley highlighted one successful attack that is designed to deny access to the website called a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack. A DDoS attack is designed to make a network unavailable to intended users, generally through a concerted effort to disrupt service such as repeatedly accessing the servers, saturating them with more traffic than the website is designed to handle.

Right wingers have been distributing the link to the necessary tools to perform the attacks on the Healthcare.gov website through social networking, as pointed out by Information Week, and other websites .

WASHINGTON (AP)— After they get the website fixed, then what? Keeping your doctors and hospitals may be the next vexing challenge for Americans in the new health plans created by President Barack Obama's law.

Obama promised people could keep their doctors. But in many states the new plans appear to offer a narrow choice of hospitals and doctors. Overall, it's shaping up as less choice than what people get through Medicare or employer-based coverage. Also, it can get complicated tracking down which medical providers are in what plans.

"The next shoe is going to drop sometime after Jan. 1, when people actually start using their plans," said health economist Gail Wilensky, who ran Medicare for President George H.W. Bush. "Whether or not they can keep their doctor is going to depend on whether their doctor was chosen — or wanted to be — part of a plan on the (insurance) exchange."

Concerns are already being raised from New Hampshire to Kentucky, and Chicago to New York.

Narrow networks are part of the economic trade-off for keeping premiums under control in Obama's health insurance markets, the new gateway to coverage for people who don't have job-based plans. Technical problems with the website HealthCare.gov have dampened initial signups, but 7 million people are expected to participate in the insurance exchanges next year. Some of those people already have coverage through individual plans.

Exchange plans are required to take all applicants, cover broad benefits and provide robust financial protection against catastrophic illness. In return for that, something else has to give. The result: limited choices and significant out-of-pocket costs through deductibles and copayments.

AFTER they drug test politicians they can talk about testing food stamps recipients. We all know they will never agree to drug test themselves, NEVER.

George, you have to start posting the link to your pastes. You always add and delete stuff from them to suit, but no one can tell what you've added and what you've deleted. Post the link. Otheriwise it's just more bs.

Afghanistan is a tough situation. First, anyone who thought there would be no troops there doesn't know history. The US never leaves. We have troops in Japan and Germany from WWII still.
Second, the moment we leave, Karzai loses power. It must be understood that Karzai is a Shell Oil executive, not a leader. He knows damn well that he was put in power by the US military and was kept in power by the US military. When that support ends, he's gone, and the country slips instantly back into a Taliban-controlled terrorist hotbed.
But the war was started by a war criminal and wasn't planned at all, seemingly by anyone, anywhere. We have LOST every war we've ever fought with a Republican-controlled House since the civil war. We achieved no strategic objectives, with the exception of Obama's raid on OBL in Pakistan.
Should we let that happen? I say YES. Let it go. Let the chips fall where they may. We have a president that isn't afraid to go anywhere to blow up a terrorist (unlike the GOP, who stated they WOULD NOT have went into Pakistan). We can launch drones from stand-off range off carrier-based planes to blow them up.
This was just a proposal by Karzai to the president. No decision has been made by the president.
the drone war is out of hand. they're killing innocent civilians. Obama also promised to bring our troops home, the war has continued on just as it would had if Bush had stayed in office, Obama has made no difference.

The drone war isn't even close to being out of hand. Out of hand is an INVASION. There WILL BE collateral damage, but only at a FRACTION of a FRACTION of what the GOP's anti-terror tactics are, literally from TOO HIGH TO COUNT (a million inocents dead) to TOO FEW TO COUNT.

Obama is a great at killing America's enemies. He's a stone-cold killer, and make no mistake about it. And have no doubt that we have enemies that force us to choose - either we blow them up or they blow us up. Obama's made the right choice.

This graph is from MIT's Jon Gruber. Maybe it will help idiots like Leighla understand how Obamacare is affecting the people of the US. So conerned about the 3 percent, no concern for the 97. Sounds like their economic policies.
