Seems to me just reading over these last few posts, that you, mr. Barney, are the dead horse that's being beaten.
What's more apparent is that everyone here enjoys beating you like a dead horse. Maybe it's time for you to just stay down, since, from what I've read, you're wrong about everything you defend.

Just cannot understand how the idea of social welfare comes at much less of a cost to the public, than what the cost to the people would be without one.
Perhaps you can understand this- rather liberal idea..........
Utah is going against the tide. In eight years, Utah has reduced homelessness by 78 percent and is on an arc to eliminating homelessness within the state by 2015. Utah has accomplished this by doing the obvious, giving homeless people homes.
In 2005, Utah did the math and determined that the yearly costs of emergency room visits and jail for homeless people was $16,670 per person. The cost of providing each homeless person with an apartment and social work came to $11,000. So, with no strings attached, the state started giving away apartments.
The program, Housing First, also provides a caseworker to each homeless person to aid them in becoming self sufficient. The program has become so successful that other states are looking for similar results by starting programs modeled after Utah’s.
Perhaps you can understand the concept of getting off of your lazy ass and getting a job! There are high paying jobs in this country and employers begging for people to come and work for them.

The insurance companies are now saying that the low Obamacare enrollment numbers are going to drive them out of business. Exactly what Obama wants. He and his administration have lobbied for single payer since the beginning and they are now working towards just that. The website debacle wasn't an accident but rather by design to give the insurance companies flawed data. This way the insurance companies can't accurately quote anyone making it look like they have no idea what they are doing. I'm not sure the low enrollment numbers are not by design either but that won't be known until the single payer system gets in place. If, when we are forced to switch to single payer, and the number of enrollees skyrocket we will know that the low initial sign-ups were by design.
I don't think you will need to worry about that low sign up thing any longer.

(Reuters)- The number of people enrolled in private health insurance under Obamacare has soared by more than one-third in recent weeks to around 3 million, according to government data released on Friday.

Marilyn Tavenner, administrator of the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), announced the preliminary tally in a blog posting. She forecast that enrollment through new federal and state health insurance marketplaces would continue to grow in coming weeks as a public outreach campaign accelerates.

The new data adds to evidence that President Barack Obama's administration has turned the corner on enrollment after a botched October 1 launch. It also shows that officials might still reach their initial goal of signing up 7 million people for private coverage by the time enrollment ends on March 31.

800,000 people have signed up in the few weeks between late December and January 15. This surge in enrollment means that the administration is only 300,000 behind their original target of 3.3 million enrollees. Once the full numbers for January are released, it is expected that the ACA will not only be on target, but may be ahead of schedule.

Yet if you like your health care plan you can keep your plan period!..

Oh the problematic irony. The Democrat Party, from President Obama on down, repeatedly lectured us that passing their big government health care law was the only way to reduce the number of uninsured.

Then again maybe it was not.

Workers Opting For Employer Coverage Over ObamaCare
98 comments, 10 called-out Comment Now
Follow Comments
Employers are seeing an increase in the number of full-time workers taking advantage of company health benefit offerings even as a parade of companies like Target Corp.(TGT) end health benefits for part-time workers.

Because the Affordable Care Act requires Americans to obtain coverage or face a penalty, employers this year are experiencing an influx of workers who hadn’t previously taken advantage of company-sponsored health benefit plans.

The wave signing up for employer coverage could be large given the number that turned such benefits down in the past. A survey by health benefits consultancy Mercer in November said 22 percent of an employer’s eligible workers “waive coverage for themselves either because they are covered under another plan or because they choose to go without.”

Here is the reason that 2.2 million signed up.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/01/24/3-...

Notice that the Obama Administration had to include those who have yet to make their first payment in order to get to the 2.2 million mark. As you probably know, insurance companies require a person to pay for the policy first before issuing coverage. The article also says that "Devon Herrick, senior analyst at the National Center for Policy Analysis, says the report continues to leave out two key statistics: premium payments and demographics". If the numbers were so great and everyone was paying, then the Obama administration would be shouting from the rooftops. But they're not. It should tell you something but I'm sure it won't. But hey, if you like the numbers then have yourself a little party. Just remember the huge drop in unemployment right before the 2012 election that turned out to be a lie. I think we are looking at a very similar situation here.

How many are paying and how much? You can't tell me because your leader won't release those numbers. If enough people are paying premiums to support this disaster, don't you think the numbers would be released and every liberal media outlet would be constantly talking about it? But they're not. Why is that? I think you know but don't want to say.

Old Barneys reply should be rich ! He's practicing the double talk. He's scouring his cut and pastes. He's looking at his list of diversion topics.
Whatever he comes back with, you can be sure it won't be specific, and you can be sure it will be ridiculous! And chances are really high that he will manage to talk about how smart he is, how he has put us in our place, or maybe both.
Poor old fool and his fuzzy math!
