getting facts from an obama fanboy news org, yeaaa okies.... How about this. The majority of people who signed up are made up of the 65+ crowd and going directly into medicare, I believe the last quote I saw was around 65-70%. While the younger people, upon whom this plan relies on to actually work, are avoiding it like the plague. ObamaCare (aka I know whats better for you than you do) will self implode. Facts I took the time myself to research from the HHS, instead of being spoon-fed 'facts' from a non-bipartisan news org and believing everything they say.

Last week a major story broke about Sean Hannity interviewing three couples who claimed to have been harmed by the Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare). However, an aide to the former governor of Montana contacted these alleged victims and published his account on Salon.com . What he discovered was that not a single one of them had even bothered to look at the insurance exchange to ascertain whether or not they would be helped or harmed. The entire episode of Hannityís program was a lie.

DC-THE DAILY CALLER
It is was on this basis that The DC concluded that ObamaCare has failed. But their own numbers tell a different story. The DC cites an analysis by Millward Brown Digital, a private marketing firm, who estimate that 36,000 people enrolled in a new health care plan on the federal exchange in the first week. And according to an article in The Atlantic, an additional 115,000 enrolled via the the state exchanges. Thatís about 150,000 enrollees in the first week, despite the software glitches. Extrapolate that number out for 50 more weeks, or one full year, and you get 7.5 million. The Department of Health and Human Services estimated that they would enroll seven million people the first year. Therefore, these numbers suggest that they will exceed their estimates.
Seriously folks' you can't make this stuff up.

There were businesses that got a year exclusion. What is going to happen when the year is up and those employee's premiums rise?
Do you agree that government employees should be excluded?

LOL, taking that much time and trouble to "research from the HHS", you should have known those people you spoke of are going into Medicaid, not Medicare, big difference, besides that they were referring to just a few states.

<quoted text>Have you been able to sign up to Obama Care yet?
Sure did , have you not read about my story?

61-year-old lifelong Republican, Butch Matthews, who was heavily skeptical of the Affordable Care Act when it first passed. A former small business owner in Little Rock, Arkansas, Matthews used to get up every morning before dawn to deliver canned beverages to retailers before he retired three years ago. Medical care is his familyís biggest expense, since his home and vehicle are paid for. So he was pleased to discover his local Blue Cross Blue Shield would cover him under Arkansasí Obamacare marketplace for less money than he had been paying, and with more benefits.

The source for this information is a site with over 50 articles, all pro Obama, anti truth. Use a real source next time and you might get some credibility
SO, if had used a source that contained over 50 articles all pro conservative, that would lend somecredibility to my post?

Fox News, Beck, Limbaugh type credibility?

The point is that you can never find a non biased source to support your position.

Again, browse through the Daily Beast articles, fin gone that is not pro liberal. Barney you need to read the news, not Pravda. Your sources remind me of China's photoshopped pictures. Think for yourself.

My point is that if a site has only pro or con articles on issues, it is biased, there is few things in the world that is that clear cut. I don't care if it is MSNBCor Fox News.

I have to agree, however facts are facts.

To say all articles are either pro or con on the subject, particularly stories reprinted in other publications as the case here, by reason of where you read it is pure subjective spin.

The article was from Salon.com and reprinted in the Daily Beast.

You see that bias source you say I used was not the source of the article at all.

Guess you would have to had read the article to figure that out.

Again, facts are facts, a magazine reports the truth that conservative do not want to hear, PRESTO, it becomes a anti Conservative publication.(pure subjective spin)

Once again, shoot the messenger and call him a Liberal because you cannot Handel the truth.

It is easy to "Handel" the truth, even the President is apologizing for parts of his great plan. He is finally admitting to problems that he and you have been denying for the past five weeks. You eventually shoot the messenger that gives you misleading information.
