Cindy Vinson and Tom Waschura are big believers in the Affordable Care Act. They vote independent and are proud to say they helped elect and re-elect President Barack Obama.

Yet, like many other Bay Area residents who pay for their own medical insurance, they were floored last week when they opened their bills: Their policies were being replaced with pricier plans that conform to all the requirements of the new health care law.

Vinson, of San Jose, will pay $1,800 more a year for an individual policy, while Waschura, of Portola Valley, will cough up almost $10,000 more for insurance for his family of four.

"I was laughing at Boehner -- until the mail came today,"
Waschura said, referring to House Speaker John Boehner, who is leading the Republican charge to defund Obamacare.

"I really don't like the Republican tactics, but at least now I can understand why they are so pissed about this. When you take $10,000 out of my family's pocket each year, that's otherwise disposable income or retirement savings that will not be going into our local economy."

Half? Bay Area IT drones scraping by on $100k (think $35k in Ohio) are being dumped for drones in Mumbai making $15k...and no health insurance to cover.

Communism failed under Stalin, Mao and Karl Marx and it will fail under Obama. In the end, someone must pay the bills and the vast number of people are not rich.

Obama lied, health care died.

I have to admit, I am still running the numbers but it doesn't look good for me for next year after just receiving my 2014 details. It's no wonder Reader has left the building after all that xxxx she gave to me about this. If I end up uninsured I will expect her to be the first to offer to pick up my medical bills - and there are lots of them.

Yesterday, I spoke with 3 others who are in the same boat. All older, all with health conditions, all previously insured - until 2014. But I guess I should be glad that someone's birth control is free for them, right?

BTW, none of these folks will qualify for Obamacare.

So in order to get a certain few insured, we will be dumping many previously insured. And this makes sense how?

I just saw a poll were 59% of the people blame Republicans for government shutdown.

That translates in this poll's case, as 41% of Democrats blame Obama.

When 100% of the people polled were Obama voters, the shock of the pollsters to realize what a small fringe is hanging on for hope and change.

What do they do now..........blame Bush?

The national debt next year will have doubled since Bush left office. It is a trillion short of double now.

Obama has added debt in 6 years, what took 43 prior presidents 230 years.

Remember the days the USA dollar was worth more than a Canadian Dollar?

Dumbocrats are usually greatly oversampled in polls. But there are also plenty of RINOs who still listen to Karl Rove.
