No matter how many die, the progressive agenda must continue. Folks, the death panels are here. They are not being reported as we get used to them of course.

I have often wondered myself why, if ObamaScam is so great why aren't we seeing stories about how great it is. Other then a half dozen or so people on Topix there are only horror stories even in the liberal press. If you talk to your neighbors they say they won't even sign up. The will pay the fee, and pay as they go for their medical care.
Because you don't read Cnutlips - you parrot what you're told.

"My favorite ACA success story is of an Ohio Republican woman profiled in Time. Republicans could say she was forced to cancel her coverage and is now paying more. But the real story is that her canceled coverage did not pay for the life-saving cancer care her husband needed. Overcoming “a lot of talk that this is a bad law,” she enrolled through and is paying a little more now for health coverage that is actually covering her husband’s cancer care. She went from “I don’t want anything to do with it [Obamacare]” to saying it is “a godsend.”

"The Obamacare success stories you haven't been hearing about"

"MIAMI (AP)— Florida's Republican leaders have fought the Affordable Care Act at every turn, banning navigators from county health departments, offering no state dollars to boost outreach efforts to 3.5 million uninsured and leading the fight to repeal the law. Yet the state has emerged as a tale of what went right with President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.

More than 440,000 Florida residents had been enrolled through the federal marketplace through the end of February, putting Florida on pace to exceed the federal government's initial projections by the time enrollment closes March 31."

Need more Cnutlips? There are a ton of success stories out there - just because YOU refuse to listen to them DOES NOT MEAN THEY DON'T EXIST!

A half dozen anonymous people.. who all supported Obamacare since it's inception.
And almost 20 million covered to date numbnuts!

Just because they're not on this site for your entertainment does not mean they don't exist.

you guys are so desperate it's pathetic.

First, the GOP said it would never get approved - it did.

Then, the same GOP nuts claimed it was unconstitutional.

SCOTUS said it was / STRIKE TWO!

Next line of the GOP attack - they'll never get the 7 million required / they did, and then some - with one month down due to a faulty web site, still the goal was accomplished.

But you GOP nuts don't even play ball fairly, so you've given yourself another strike at the ball - this time, the numbers are skewed, they're fabricated.

Well, time for strike four moron;

"The Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association, which represents the nation’s Blue Cross and Blue Shield plans, says “80-85&#8243; percent of newly enrolled individuals buying plans under the Affordable Care Act are paying their premiums.

The figure was confirmed by Forbes this morning and is slated to be announced later today by the Chicago-based trade association for the nation’s Blue Cross and Blue Shield plans. The results, which confirm from a survey of most Blue Cross participating on exchanges, are as of Feb. 1."

"Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said Monday that insurance companies estimate between 80 and 90 percent of the 6 million people who have signed up for Obamacare have actually paid a premium.

"What we know from insurance companies ... tell(s) us that, for their initial customers, it's somewhere between 80, 85, some say as high as 90 percent, have paid so far," Sebelius said on KWTV-TV. "Lots of companies have different timetables for when their new customers have to send their first payment."

But wait!!! You guys said the ACA was killing over 2 million jobs, right?


"No, CBO did not say Obamacare will kill 2 million jobs"

"Conservative critics of the Affordable Care Act have immediately and fervently latched onto one line from the Congressional Budget Office’s new 182-page report regarding the economic impact of Obamacare:“The reduction in CBO’s projections of hours worked represents a decline in the number of full-time-equivalent workers of about 2.0 million in 2017, rising to about 2.5 million in 2024.” But what exactly does that mean?

Washington Post fact checker Glenn Kessler has given “Three Pinocchio's” to anyone claiming that means Obamacare will “kill” 2.5 million jobs over the next 10 years, as numerous commentators and writers have done so far Tuesday. "

If there were in fact a death panel, you're late for your appointment.

Would you like me to reschedule you now?
