A devastating new McKinsey & Co. report finds that Obamacare's purported purpose providing coverage for the previously uninsured has failed.

The report concludes that 74% of Obamacare enrollees at the end of the first open enrollment period already had insurance; just 26% reported being previously uninsured. Of those who were previously uninsured, the figure drops to only 22% when considered alongside whether the individual has activated his plan by paying his first month's premium.

We American-99% need another subprime-mortgage-crisis.
We American-99% had a chance to change when subprime-mortgage-crisis (bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers) occured in 2008.
But, we American-99% had wasted the chance.

Another subprime-mortgage-crisis will solve all the problems which the U.S. now has.

I love the U.S.
I love American-99%!

yes, you heard me right. I heard this from a democrat, mind you.
the guy was bragging about how all you need is a mailing address in the usa. that's it. no more. no less.
you don't even need ID. hell. the application form lists a social security number. but one is not required to provide it.
when you go to the hospital to get service, you only need to show your obamacare card to get it. NO ID required.
do you know why no ID is required? because some idiots on capitol hill said that is considered racial profiling or because not everybody has IDs.
do you know how insane this is?
since nobody checks to see if people are using pill boxes for their address, someone who is a foreigner could apply for this healthcare. and get it for FREE if they say they are not working.
do you know how many foreigners there are in the world? around 6+ BILLION.
obamacare will bankrupt the futures of our children.
don't believe me? wait when the bills start piling up. and then ask yourself.. what the heck is this? it's not obamacare. it's obamakill.

I love the "It's not WERRRKKKING 'cause they aint PAAAAAIDDDDDD yet!" BS that the Right keeps pumping out.

Utterly false and ridiculous, but it keeps them believing, which is all they really want to do.

Eighthdung, you think that by making things up you will snare a few mouthbreathers. But be assured, the rest of us see through your transparent fact-free fakery. But even as comedy relief, you have become a bore, and we must seek a new jester. Applications are welcome.

I saw the card with my own eyes. it said on the top of the card, "affordable care".

the Asian American guy that showed it to me got it from some place in Hawaii. the guy was raving about how easy it was to get it.

next time I see him, I will take a picture of it with my cell phone.

I think most voters know what the Democrats are for. But I believe they are far less aware of what the Republicans are against. I think the emphasis should be in pointing out the glaring heartlessness of Republican ideology.

We need loud emphasis on such issues as :
-Republican opposition to raising the minimum wage
-Republican opposition to extending unemployment benefits
-Republican attempts to kill the Affordable Health Care Act, without offering an alternative
-Republican obstruction of the jobs bill provided by the administration
-Republican attempts to cut assistance for the poor and needy
-Republican efforts to obstruct the civil rights of various minority segments of society

This, in my opinion, is the type of campaign the Democrats should run. The Republican palette is one of rejection of the American idea of fairness and compassion for all. Their strategy is one of opposing Obama at every turn, even at the cost of hurting our people. Our strategy must be one of making certain every American knows it.
