To the average American, ObamaCare is part web site disaster, part shattered campaign promise writ very, very large.

Millions of Americans have already been forced out of their existing health care policies, a number that may skyrocket in the new year.

Russell Simmons sees it differently.

The hip-hop mogul says ObamaCare is already so successful it's saved thousands, if not millions of lives.

Yes, we initially wanted single payer, and we had to compromise back in 2009 for the Affordable Care Act. But, it is a damn good piece of legislation that has already saved hundreds of thousands, if not millions of lives. So, let us not give up now.

Simmons blasted the 39 house Democrats who voted in favor of tweaking ObamaCare, but he saved his harshest words for the GOP in toto.

I know where Republicans stand. They have voted 47 times to repeal the Affordable Care Act, so their stance is clear. If you get sick, you’re on your own. If you can’t pay for your medical expenses, declare bankruptcy. If you have a pre-existing condition, they’ll send you a get well card when you’re on your death-bed. Whatever President Obama stands for, they stand for the opposite. Even if it goes against every principle they have advocated for in the past, they would rather destroy our country, than see President Obama pass policy that is good for ALL Americans.

As for the millions who already lost their health care plan thanks to ObamaCare's arrival, Simmons says they should simply say, "good riddance." He simply knows better than you. Period.

And please don’t tell me this about people whose healthcare was canceled…because that healthcare is predatory and it is unconscionable that we would allow anyone in this country to own such policies.

WTH is he talking about? Try getting insurance from any source with a pre-existing condition. Carriers will suck your bank account dry or flat out deny coverage, unless it is group coverage provided by your employer. Mr Simmons is only kissing up to the king in chief.

If you weren't so filled with hate / Black Rage you would see that your own people are suffering most under Obama horrible policies. But you are all about revenge not rehabilitation or redemption.

Ignore Republican nihilism. Obamacare is already working

The media parrots GOP talking-points about ACA bugs, but the fact is it's cutting healthcare costs and expanding coverage
http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013...

First, it was the disastrous unveiling of Healthcare.gov , which was supposed to help Americans buy health insurance coverage, but instead, gave those who tried to navigate it either a splitting headache or rapidly rising blood pressure.

Now, this week, consumers are waking up to another reality of the law. Remember when President Obama said that under Obamacare, "if you like your healthcare coverage, you can keep it"? Not so much.

For example, if you bought your healthcare coverage on the individual market before Congress passed Obamacare – and that plan no longer adheres to the law's requirements – that plan will be cancelled. It's a wrinkle that millions of Americans are finding out in the form of cancellation letters from their health insurance companies.

But this particular element of Obamacare is not a bug of the law. It's a feature.

In fact, it's yet another reminder that, for all its hiccups, Obamacare is well on its way to transforming how Americans receive healthcare – and almost certainly for the better. For most Americans, Obamacare will mean little evident change. If, like the vast majority of Americans, you receive your insurance through your employer today … you will continue to receive it from them tomorrow. And you will do so with greater security and more flexibility if you leave your job.

The real change, however, is on the individual market, which before Obamacare was a godawful mess. The use of pre-existing conditions to deny coverage allowed companies to cherrypick healthy Americans. If you were "lucky" enough to get coverage in the market, you were likely forced to deal with high premiums, higher deductibles and huge co-insurance requirements. Benefit offerings were skimpy at best, which meant that if you had a health emergency, chances were the insurer would only cover a small part of the bill. Calling it insurance was an insult to the word itself.

Forcing insurance companies to offer better coverage – and a minimal set of benefits with no trapdoors for consumers – is an unqualified good.

Not surprisingly, Republicans, who have seized on every piece of bad news about Obamacare like a rabid dog, are behaving the worst. Blanket Republican opposition to Obamacare has become such an ingrained part of our nation's politics that few appreciate its unprecedented nature. As more than a few commentators have pointed out, when Medicare Part D was passed, in 2004, Democrats strongly opposed it. Two years later, when it went into effect, it was a disaster. Computer systems didn't work properly (sound familiar?), seniors couldn't get accurate information, and the situation was so bad that President George W Bush actually had to apologize in his state of the union speech for the lousy implementation.
==========

It appears that you only tout the stories which support your delusions. There's plenty good out therein the land of ACA stories, but of course you'll choose not to look at that..... or the REAL reasons behind the struggles..... you're an opportunist in the WORST regard

Health insurance is not a legitimate or a constitutional fedgov concern.

The state govs can cover it.

If you don't like the insurance scheme of your state of residence, move.

The ACA is designed primarily to service women, who use medical services at a much higher rate than men on average. The ACA scheme is designed to shift the burden of womens demand for extra medical services to everyone. Obama has publicly stated this womens benefit as a primary goal of ACA. There's no reason a stategov could not provide this subsidy-privilege for women.

ACA is just another vote-buying privilege for diversity people, in particular women and the disabled. Women are the largest subgroup of diversity, and the majority of voters, supporting a national victim cult political scheme. Disabled are victim cult too. Disabled military veterans receive privileges with generous disability payouts.
