<quoted text>the subsidies don't last forever--O'bama and democrats don't care. They don't care if the American people have insurance and less people will have insurance under the O'bamacare TAX-now let's get on to the cash system. Doctors are not signing up to take O'bamacare TAX patients either, why you ask? because the O'bama administration will not tell them how much they are going to be paid for services. It's the old Nancy Liberal policy: sign up and then we will tell you. This is the biggest screw job foisted on the American people. I feel sorry for the sick -really I do, but no one is going to end up paying for them.
the networks are small not just because the doctors don't want to be stuck with lower fees....the insurers want the networks to be small because that creates rationing...doctors can see only so many patients and hospitals have only so many beds, regardless of demand from new ObamaKKKare patients....so when you try to get knee surgery, the first date may be six months in the future...the same way the Canadian system "works"...

ObamaKKKare is the second (or third) tier of medical care in the US....make no mistake that it is the same as that for real customers...

Hello rightwing morans and normal people. How is everyone today?

Homer just has a quick 5-10 min break for lunch so get your hellos/comments/aspersions in early and often.

President still relatively popular, Tea Baggers still vilified by the American public?

Gallup poll -

Americans' approval of the Affordable Care Act rose to 45% in October from 41% in August.

I expect it will be at or near 60% this time next year.

Now they're kicking themselves in the butt. And why Obama's approval ratings are dropping.
Obama succeeded in his "divide and conquer" strategy in 2012. All those invisible wars seemed to just disappear after the election.
It's because they were never there to begin with.
so do you think that if Obama hits the record low in the polls that Bush set that we're just going to fire him?

doesn't matter how low it goes. he's not going anywhere until Hillary moves into the WH.

and the whole 'Obama divide and conquer' bs doesn't stand up to scrutiny.

Since Barack Obama became president, the extremists who have taken over the Republican Party have escalated their demands every time he’s caved, using the entire government of the United States as their bargaining chit.

In 2010 he agreed to extend all of the Bush tax cuts through the end of 2012. Were they satisfied? Of course not.

In the summer of 2011, goaded by an influx of Tea Partiers, they demanded huge spending cuts in return for raising the debt ceiling. In response, the President offered an overly-generous $4 trillion “Grand Bargain,” including cuts in Social Security and Medicare and whopping cuts in domestic spending (bringing it to its lowest level as a share of gross domestic product in over half a century).

Were Republicans content? No. When they demanded more, Obama agreed to a Super Committee to find bigger cuts, and if the Super Committee failed, a “sequester” that would automatically and indiscriminately slice everything in the federal budget except Social Security and Medicare.

Not even Obama’s re-election put a damper on their increasing demands. By the end of 2012, they insisted that the Bush tax cuts be permanently extended or the nation would go over the “fiscal cliff.” Once again, Obama caved, agreeing to permanently extend the Bush tax cuts for incomes up to $400,000.

Early this year, after the sequester went into effect, Republicans demanded even bigger spending cuts. Obama offered more cuts in Medicare and a “chained CPI” to reduce Social Security payments, in exchange for Republican concessions on taxes.

Refusing the offer, and seemingly delirious with their power to hold the nation hostage, they demanded that the Affordable Care Act be repealed as a condition for funding the government and again raising the debt ceiling.

This time, though, Obama didn’t cave.

We both know you don't use sources liberals cite, you demonize them as lies. Step out of the closet, you've been running a "conspiracy" right under our noses for months. I've suspected it for quite a while but now I'm sure. By constantly pointing out phony conspiracies on the left no one would think you are running one yourself. Nice try.
Hey its a good gig, you should be proud to get paid for herding these right wing sheep. Actually I'll bet in reality your political leanings are left. Nice work. wink. wink.

According to the Desmoines Register, Voss and his wife are paying $100 per month more now than for their previous policy cost of $1,300 per month but now have a premium plan with lower deductibles and no holes in the coverage. The two qualify for a $500 subsidy.

The Republicans allowed Obama to slip through the fence and never directly challenged him on every issue. They thought they'd win over an indoctrinated population by appearing to be the nice guy battling a political gangster.
It did work. It took Christi sabotaging the Republicans, a freak storm, and programming voting machines on a large scale to steal votes for Obama to remain as the sitting president.

Mike Lee’s Utah Problem

It is a common assumption that leading supporters of the GOP’s defunding/shutdown strategy are so politically secure back home that they can afford to ignore the national political backlash against their tactics. While that may be true in many places, that isn’t the case in Utah, where Mike Lee may even be in danger of being challenged under a new system that would make his re-election less likely.

....I don’t think any purpose would be served by a primary challenge against Lee, and it would be a shame for the prospects of conservative policy reform if Republicans voted Lee out. Nonetheless, this discontent is something that he should be taking seriously, and I’m not sure that he is. This isn’t just the usual griping from centrist Republicans, which Lee might easily dismiss. It represents broader dissatisfaction with how Lee has been doing his job. It would be one thing if Lee could defend the shutdown as an unfortunate necessity that yielded important benefits for his constituents, but all that his constituents received was a drop in their business. Like many other Western states, Utah depends on national parks for a significant part of its economy, so there was no way that even a brief shutdown wouldn’t have adversely affected the state.

Some Utah Republicans think that the voters will change their minds over time:

“You are going to have people angry at you whenever you take on a really tough issue,” said Utah GOP chairman James Evans.“But over time, people will come around to Mike’s views as he continues to articulate them.”

This misses that most Utahns aren’t upset with Lee because he “took on” a tough issue, but because he took it on in a way that wasn’t going to work and ended up costing them money. One of the biggest mistakes any incumbent can make is to assume that the voters back home will eventually “come around” to his view when he has positioned himself squarely on the wrong side of public opinion. Incumbents that think this way very soon become ex-incumbents.

Impressive that someone would try more than 100 times, must be a very popular program.

lol! Awwww.... lookie here....

The t-p reich wing nuts trying to make a CONSTITUTIONAL amendment again!

Typical cons. Always trying to rework one of our most cherished documents to their benefit!

SOP!!!

"Rand Paul constitutional amendment on Congress: Does it miss its mark?
Sen. Rand Paul (R) wants a constitutional amendment to prevent Congress from exempting themselves, and other top US officials, from laws that apply to ordinary Americans. He may be thinking about Obamacare here, but his idea is getting trounced from left and right.
Christian Science Monitor
By Peter Grier 1 hour ago

Sen. Rand Paul (R) of Kentucky has introduced a constitutional amendment that he says would prevent members of Congress from voting into law special treatment for themselves or for pretty much any other top US federal official.

Why is he doing this? It seems clear he’s aiming at Obamacare provisions that some Republicans say give preferential status to members of Congress and their staffs. There was a lot of talk about that during the recent unpleasantness of the government shutdown and debt-ceiling struggle, if you remember.

The amendment’s language, released Monday on Senator Paul’s official website, seems straightforward. Its first section says,“Congress shall make no law applicable to a citizen of the United States that is not equally applicable to Congress.”

Further sections say similarly that laws have to be equally applicable to the president, vice president, ambassadors, other public US officials, the US Supreme Court, the chief justice, and other federal judges.

That’s about it. Simple, right?

Well, yes and no. The words may be concise, but in this case their effects would be wide-ranging and unpredictable. And in terms of Obamacare, it’s possible that this amendment, if adopted, would have the exact opposite effect of what Paul evidently intends.

That’s why it has drawn some harsh criticism from both ends of the political spectrum...."
