So far I have talked to 3 people who can tolerate their Unaffordable Healthcare, and many who either won't sign up, or tried to sign up, and failed, or who are disgusted with the whole idea. We have laws in America, and I have never ever heard of a law we so hate being implemented.

Catboy, Obamacare is the law, we wanted to sign up, we tried to sign up, we did not fail to sign up and we are NOT disgusted with our new insurance plan.

This implementation is NOT hated in our family, our bank account likes the implementation and we keep our doctor.

I know Dear, that is why your posts of great success is so difficult to believe. There are millions of others that find Obamascam a complete disaster.

I guess if you are going to lie, lie big. Only 4,000,000 have signed up, not 13,000,000. But hey, since when does the truth get in the way of a Democrat.

Catboy, whether you believe success or not is of no importance to me. The important issue is that our family have better health care, less than $2700 per month with the old blue shield plan and we keep our doctor too.

So yes, boy, it is a great success and not difficult to believe if you folks were less about hate and more about success.

A state with a Republican governor & legislature
will make it as hard as possible for citizens to
sign up for the ACA no matter how much they want it
or how badly they need it..

If you include all the kids who will be covered
by their parent's health insurance plan up to their
age of 26, it's a lot more than 4 million
signed up so far.

Then the answer is simple. If you are right about the health care system we enacted, then come November of 2014 the progressive Democratic party should win in landslide with numbers comparable to the the 2008 election. A senate near 60 seats and a house with a massive majority.

ObamaCare is to health what rot is to leprosy.

That is right. If you like your Obamacare vote Democrat. If you think it is a failed piece of legislation vote Republican. So far the political strategists are betting on a big Republican win in both the House, and the Senate, and yes they are naming Obmacare as the primary reason Americans are so angry. Even Democrats are complaining about the destruction of our Healthcare system. See ya at the polls.

True conservatives have been saying much the same things
about Social Security for the last 80 years. It's no good.
Of course, of course, and the South won the Civil War.

If you think S S keeps anyone out of poverty you are sadly mistaken. If you haven't saved a great deal of money. made successful investments you can look forward to your food stamps, and your Obama phone.

Once again, so happy that it has worked out to your advantage, but in the majority of states, this is not the typical outcome. A lot of folks in New York state are pretty happy about it, too, but they haven't read the fine print of what's going to happen with those lower rates in coming years.

Here in Ct., over half who've signed up found that they're eligible for Medicaid. Sounds just ducky, doesn't it? They're going to get bounced into a system that was already overwhelmed before this bill went into affect and there's a night and day difference in the treatment and services you get. Just ask anyone who ever went through the 'clinics' while expecting a child, or the difference concerning cancer treatments or a multitude of different scenarios. I feel terrible for these folks. They don't have doctors to keep or lose, they get whoever is on duty when they show up. And if it's not an emergency, they wait weeks or longer for appointments.

So keep crowing about how great it has worked out for you. As long as you got yours, everyone else can pound sand, right? You sound like a swell American (not).

The law has passed....it will not be repealed. Rich people, even though they claim to be Christians, don't want to help poor people get health insurance. They should be ashamed of themselves.

Like 12:
33 Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will never fail, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.
