About an hour after Boehner’s office claimed the House Speaker couldn’t sign up for the Affordable Care Act coverage on the D.C. exchange, his office confirmed that he had officially enrolled.
This just in - As a result of John Boehner's new insurance coverage, he got his first rectal exam. They found his head!

Not only has Obama lied repeatedly, he is now trying to manipulate the various dates until after the elections. This President has violated his oath of office by lying to the American People had his pledge that we would be able to keep our doctors is nothing less than outright fraud.

We need to impeach this imposter, usurper and criminal.

Sick people wouldn't pay exhorbitant insurance premium if they started buying their health insurance before they got seriously sick. Normal people buy catastrophic health insurance before they get seriously sick; stupid and irresponsible people wait until it happens. When stupid and irresponsible sick people get the insurance bill, they squeal and write their congressman demanding a bailout by responsible taxpayers.

Nobody else but a government bureaucrat rewards such stupid and irresponsible behavior. A psycho bureaucrat makes it a national policy.

Stupid and irresponsible people already receive Medicaid and SSI government programs to take care of them. Adding another gov program like ACA is a vote buying scheme.

Obama has publicly stated his ACA is primarly a targeted benefit for women, to shift the cost of womens demand for more medical services to everyone. Although millions don't need the mandated coverage, ACA rules require everyones insurance plan to cover typical womens medical services such as maternity, Ob/Gyn, mental health, auto-immune disease, and c-sections.

The ACA also forces all insurance plans to cover elective abortion, yet another female-only and peculiar medical procedure.

This fact has attracted more media attention than the ACA enforced general subsidy of all women's health care cost.

The moral principle that says if you consume it you are expected to pay for it is thrown out the window with ACA. The larger picture is the female vote buying that is implicit in the ACA scheme.

They're projecting 100 million people will be cancelled from the insurance they prefer to keep.

I guess he did say: "if you like your healthcare insurance cancellation notice, YOU CAN KEEP IT!"

Yes, of course.

All 2-party system politicians including Romney are national socialist ideologues.

However, RomneyCare is not national socialism, as already stated.

RomneyCare is state socialism.

If Romney were elected to US president, he probably would have implemented some other national medical services benefit scheme for women, but called it something else such as the Womens Supplemental Medicaid.

And if not cancelled, more than they've ever paid before. I'm still wondering why nobody is pointing out the fact that the "affordable" premiums + deductible + OOP expenses = several months' worth of take-home pay for the lower wages ($12-17/hour).

Huff Post aka Puff Post

By Susan Heavey

WASHINGTON, Nov 25 (Reuters)- A growing number of Americans doubt President Barack Obama's ability to manage the nation, according to a CNN/ORC poll released on Monday that reflects the possible larger impact of his administration's fumbled rollout of its healthcare law.

The poll also found that 53 percent of those polled said Obama is not honest or trustworthy, marking the first time that the CNN/ORC polling found a clear majority questioning the president's integrity, CNN said.

Forty percent of the 843 U.S. adults surveyed in the telephone poll early last week said Obama can manage the government effectively, down 12 percentage points from June.

The poll was conducted Nov. 18-20 amid ongoing problems plaguing the president's signature domestic policy achievement, the healthcare law widely known as Obamacare.

Barack Obama Approval Rating Now Lower Than Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's
PolicyMic 11/25/13
The news: President Barack Obama now has a lower job approval rating than Toronto Mayor Rob Ford. Yes, crack-smoking Rob “I’ve got more than enough to eat at home” Ford now has greater support among his constituents than the president of the United States has among his own.
According to a CBS poll from November 20, Obama’s approval rating has sunk to just 37%, the lowest ever in CBS polls. Meanwhile, Ford enjoys a comparatively lofty approval rating of 42%.
The backstory: Most of Obama’s recent dip in the polls can be attributed to the plummeting approval for the Affordable Care Act. The same CBS poll that found Obama at 37% cites support for the ACA at a paltry 31%. The troubled rollout of Obamacare – to which the president has tied much of his legacy – is dragging him down, prompting the 57% disapproval rating. Since October, when the ACA launched, Obama has seen a 9% drop in approval.
Meanwhile, Rob Ford’s current approval ratings are actually higher than they were before he admitted to smoking crack. Before the crack scandal, Ford was sitting at 39%(close to Obama’s ratings now), and though he’s dropped 2% in two weeks, Ford still finds himself above 40%.
Why this matters: In reality, it’s kind of silly to compare Obama and Ford’s numbers. Their approval ratings are for two wildly different jobs, and taken among vastly different constituent bodies. Plus, the driving issues behind each right now couldn’t be more different – Obama’s is based on technical policy issues with a real consequence for his constituents, while the focus on Ford has to do with what he does during his “drunken stupors.” Though, apparently, Ford isn’t doing so well on real policy matters, either.
But the comparison between Obama and Ford’s numbers does provide a striking snapshot of just how troubled these recent weeks have been for the president. Passage of the Affordable Care Act was one of the hallmarks of Obama’s first term, and now its botched launch is threatening to become the defining moment of his second term. Obama is the captain, and if the ACA ship goes down, he’s going down with it. As trivial as it is, maybe there’s something behind Obama’s place on GQ’s least influential list. Even Congressional Democrats are trying to distance themselves from the president.
Obama really needed a win, and he may have just got one. But if that doesn’t boost his approval ratings, there’s always taking a page from Rob Ford’s playbook.
