America should demand that CA be amputated from the family of American States. Otherwise, every day will be worse than yesterday for America. Proof? Comrade Pelosi.

So the Whitehouse' Council of Economic Advisors puts out a report with a positive spin about Obamacare, and we're supposed to believe it?

Have you considered the source?

62% of personal bankruptcies in the US are the result of a medical problem.
>>Proponents of the health-cost-bankruptcy theory tend to cite a Harvard study that blames high medical bills for some 62 percent of American bankruptcies. The study's authors include Elizabeth Warren, a former Obama Administration official and current Democratic candidate for Senate from Massachusetts.

Researchers who are not on Team Obama have come to different conclusions.

A study published in the journal Health Affairs reviewed Justice Department data and discovered that among Americans who cited medical debt as a contributing factor in their bankruptcy filing, only 12 to 13 percent of their total debts were medical.

It's difficult to conclude that bankrupt folks are awash in healthcare debt when nearly 90 percent of their obligations are unrelated to health care.

The study also reviewed Warren's early research on medical bankruptcies and found that medical spending was a factor in no more than 17 percent of U.S. bankruptcies.

A detailed analysis by The Atlantic's Megan McArdle further discredited the link between bankruptcy and medical expense. She found that Warren's team
classified a filing as a medical bankruptcy whenever unpaid medical bills were resolved through bankruptcy proceedings -- even if other debts were far bigger contributors to insolvency.

<quoted text>You read that in the La times didn't you.
A fascinating number in Wednesday's CBS poll is that only 7% of the American public want ObamaCare "kept in place." A full 93% either believe that changes are needed to the law (48%) or want a full repeal (43%). This pits President Obama and Democrat lawmakers -- who thus far have refused to make any meaningful changes -- against 93% of the American people and 72% of Democrats.
Moreover, only 12% of Democrats want ObamaCare "kept as is." Another 12% want it repealed.
If only 12% of Democrats want nothing changed with ObamaCare, there is no question that Democrat lawmakers and the president are defying their own base with this ongoing refusal to make any real changes to the law. Furthermore, they are blocking proposed changes, including changes proposed by fellow Democrats.
The La times has been caught over and over again lying about how wonderful things are in Obozoland.Well the cbs poll does say 7% want it to stay the way it is.Could only be in Califorication.

OBAMA AND EXECUTIVE POWER: THEN AND NOW - Shot -Im going to choose to interpret it this way or that way. Thats not part of his power. This is part of the theory of George Bush, that he can make laws as he goes along. I disagree with that. I taught the Constitution for 10 years. I believe in the Constitution. I will obey the Constitution of the United States. Then-Sen. Barack Obama, campaigning in Billings, Mont., May 19,2008.
Yeah he's really stuck by that hasn't he?Just like if you like your plan your doctor your hospital,cost will go down for families by 2500.The website will be fully functional by Nov.30.Great job demonrats,destroy what's left.The man is a liar plain and simple but you libturds see it as acceptable,he's broke more laws than Bundy.But you go ahead worship him.

California is well ahead of the rest of the country in implementing the Affordable Care Act and has rejected President Obama's request to let insurers extend their current health policies, as it affects less than million Californians who have inferior coverage that doesn't comply with the requirements of the federal health law.

Brown had a 1.3 million vote margin in 2010. The opposition only has to swing 700,000 votes. If he loses 700K and the opposition gains 700K they win.

When friends and family hear about people being dropped OR their first bill comes in and wasn't what was promised that's even more votes. Business lose there extension next year, notices for 2015 will start rolling before the 2014 elections.
