one person makes a nation? and what kind of sucky insurance did she have that the ACA has done away with?
some will pay more. MOST will pay less. but hey, if you want one person to indicate failure for the many i have one name for you....Mitt Romney
This bill is historic for so many reasons. Nothing this stupid has ever been foisted on the American People, and the more we discover about it the less likely it will ever get off the ground. It is partially extended until March, and when it is still in trouble it will be a year, and then 2 years, and gone. Either the writers were high on something unlawful, or drunk on something, but it doesn't make any sense. The Democrats are embarrassed. The President looks stupid. The party is losing voters that will either vote Republican or stay home which is just as bad, as Republicans learned in 2012. And on top of that bit of information: O'bama admits he knows nothing about anything.

<quoted text>CBS News has confirmed that in Washington, of the more than 35,000 people newly enrolled, 87% signed up for Medicaid. In Kentucky, out of 26,000 new enrollments, 82% are in Medicaid. And in New York, of 37,000 enrollments, Medicaid accounts for 64%. And there are similar stories across the country in nearly 1/2 of the states that run their own exchanges.
Gail Wilensky, a former Medicaid director, said the numbers are causing concern in the insurance industry, which needs healthy adults to buy private insurance in large numbers for the system to work.
"Either the private insurance enrollments come up somewhere around the expected amount or there's going to be a problem.... You need a volume & you need a mix of people that are healthy as well as high users in private insurance, in order to have it be sustainable," she said.
The Obama administration says they expected these high enrollment numbers in Medicaid because the law expands the number of low-income people who can get Medicaid, CBS News' Jan Crawford reported on "CBS This Morning." Supporters say this shows demand. But industry sources say that if we do not see some real turnaround soon, there could be big problems for the entire system.

Many Obamacare Shoppers Aren’t Actually Buying -
Medicaid, not private insurance, is getting the bulk of early state enrollments
It’s not clear how many Americans have secured new health insurance through Obamacare — the federal government won’t disclose initial figures until November. But some states have released preliminary numbers and a look at the early statistics shows that the vast majority of people who have managed to navigate the sign-up process in some states have enrolled in Medicaid, not private health plans.
The Affordable Care Act allowed states to expand eligibility for Medicaid, and about half have done so, meaning millions more Americans now qualify for the public insurance program. It’s also likely that many people who previously qualified but never signed up for Medicaid may be enrolling amid the Obamacare publicity blitz.

so how many of those will get new coverage? at a lower price as long as you don't live in a redstate that decided to screw the poor. we still have folks in those states who will still have to go without insurance. so maybe we should be seeing headlines like this....
Millions of Americans still won't have insurance because GOP Governors hate Obama for no reason any sane person can fathom.
The good thing is that GOP governors are starting to realize the stupidity of their decision not to expand Medicaid given the Federal government's offer to pay a minimum of 90% of the cost as opposed to the traditional 90%. With the exception of Texas, I expect more and more Republican governors to realize the stupidity of their decision.

Ah, the Saudis' are upset because Obama isn't their hand puppet get "embroiled in the sectarian rivalries of the Middle East. Too bad, so sad. Obama is doing exactly what he was elected to do....follow a course of negotiation and end our military involvement in the "centuries-old rivalries" that exist in the Middle East.
The "spying" on our allies is overblown and a non-issue. Bush is no longer president. It certainly was no secret that under his espionage tactics, no one....including American citizens...had any expectation of privacy.
Funny to watch Republicans trying to calm the waters since realizing that the spying is a Bush issue.
Marco Rubio:“Everyone spies on everybody. These leaders are responding to domestic pressures. None of them are truly shocked about any of this.”
It’s a good thing that Barack Obama watches so much news. Otherwise, how else would he know what his administration is doing?

Why is Obammy hiding Joe Biden, the only non-partisan in his administration?
Actually, Biden does whatever his boss tells him to. He might well be thinking that loyal-lapdog status will earn him Obama’s endorsement in 2016.
And the report in Politico that Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid told the president to keep Biden away from Congress during the shutdown is credible.“None of the deals Biden has struck have aged well from the perspective of the Democratic Caucus,” a Senate Democratic official told Politico.
Which means that, at a notably divisive moment in national politics, the country is being run by Harry Reid.
President Obama has silenced the one player on his team with a proven record of working the middle and instead chosen to go for all-out partisan warfare.
Okey-dokey. Except that doesn’t work when you have a Republican House.
Obama may still think he can go over the heads of his opponents on Capitol Hill and fire up the American people, who in turn will pressure their congressmen to the do the White House’s bidding.
But if so, he’s the only one who thinks that.
Only guessing, but Biden's presence may be a painful reminder of his most embarrassing gaffe when he promised us quite emphatically, "Obama has a big stick!"

Or the painful reminder of being overheard about the passage of Obamacare and it being a "big f--ing deal."

Either/or. Both are now quite embarrassing.

That is a recurring observation in the media these days...they keep ignoring the subsidy credits. Once the website is up and running correctly, people will be able to see for themselves the truth behind the lies.

geez how long did you have to search for that article from September? in case you can't keep up with your small brain, it is October--and Republican governors are thankful they didn't expand medicaid. Put up an article before the debacle of the O'bamacare rolled out and look stupid. It is liberalism at its finest. Way to go.

"A year after Romney loss, GOP woes run even deeper
Associated Press
By CHARLES BABINGTON 43 minutes ago

WASHINGTON (AP)— A year after losing a presidential race many Republicans thought was winnable, the party arguably is in worse shape than before. The GOP is struggling to control tensions between its tea party and establishment wings and watching approval ratings sink to record lows.

It's almost quaint to recall that soon after Mitt Romney lost to President Barack Obama, the Republican National Committee recommended only one policy change: endorsing an immigration overhaul, in hopes of attracting Hispanic voters.

That immigration bill is now struggling for life and attention in the Republican-run House. The bigger worry for many party leaders is the growing rift between business-oriented Republicans and the GOP's more ideological wing. Each accuses the other of bungling the debt ceiling and government shutdown dramas, widely seen as a major Republican embarrassment.

The problems don't end there.

Polls show the GOP nominee trailing in a Virginia governor's race that history says a Republican should win. At the national level, it's hard to recall when Republicans seemed so leaderless. Romney has returned to private life. Potential rising stars have stumbled, as Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida did when he angered conservative activists by pushing the immigration measure through the Senate.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is preoccupied with his Kentucky re-election bid, squeezed between a tea party GOP challenger on the right and a well-regarded Democrat on the left. In the House, Speaker John Boehner of Ohio cemented his support among Republican colleagues only by letting them vote heavily against a bipartisan plan to avert an unprecedented default on U.S. obligations.

The legislation, which also reopened the government, passed mostly with Democratic votes. That's hardly the type of victory a Republican speaker hangs on his wall.

Eyeing this troubling landscape, many Republican campaign veterans hope conservative die-hards will narrow their differences with the party's more pragmatic members before next year's elections and the 2016 presidential campaign.

"If we don't find common ground and stand on the same side of the line, we're going to have a very ugly and rough couple of years," said Sara Taylor Fagen, who directed political affairs in President George W. Bush's White House...."
