Ah, just as ReTHUGS were wringing their hands in anticipation and smelling the scent of victory, they are, once again, SHOT DOWN. Couldn't happen to a more deserving group of morons.
(Reuters)- The website for Americans to buy insurance under President Barack Obama's healthcare law should be working smoothly for most users by the end of November, a White House official assigned to fix Healthcare.gov said on Friday.

Sebelie-to-us needs to be fired. There is no accountability in this Obama Regime. They are a bunch of thugs.
Obama has more scandals with high level officials than the last ten presidents combined. They are a bunch of crooks.
Holder - Fast & Furious s/b fired.
Lois Lerner - IRS denying Americans due process and civil rights.
Sebelie-to-us - incompetence & arrogance.
Hillary/Obama - Bengazigate - dead patriots - incompetence & coverup.
Obama makes Nixon look like a Girl Scout.
The list goes on and on.

Cutting $700 million from Medicare Advantage to finance ObamaCare has its consequences:
ObamaCare is making seniors sick.
Elderly New Yorkers are in a panic after getting notices that insurance companies are booting their doctors from the Medicare Advantage program as a result of the shifting medical landscape under ObamaCare.
That leaves patients with unenviable choices: keep the same insurance plan and find another doctor, pay out of pocket or look for another plan where their physician is a member.
New York State Medical Society President Sam Unterricht is demanding a congressional probe after learning that one health carrier alone, UnitedHealthcare, is terminating contracts with up to 2,100 doctors serving 8,000 Medicare Advantage patients in the New York metro region.
The are 2.6 million elderly New Yorkers who receive Medicare, the public heath-insurance program for the elderly.
But one in three patients nearly 900,000 are enrolled in Advantage, Medicare HMOs run by private insurers.
Dr. Jonathan Leibowitz, who serves 30 patients under Medicare Advantage at his Brooklyn practice, said he was blindsided by UnitedHealthcares decision to give him the boot.
A patient cant see his doctor? What are they doing! he asked.
UnitedHealthcare told Leibowitz that because of significant changes and pressures in the health-care environment, hed be getting the ax on Jan. 1.
Leibowitzs patients are furious. Alfred Gargiulio, who has cerebral palsy with a seizure disorder, has been seeing Leibowitz since 1993.Obama had said I could keep my doctor. Now theyre doing away with my doctor. They kicked him out! After 20 years, thats not right. We love Dr. Leibowitz, said Gargiulio.
Another patient, Wilma Streicher, 76, was equally baffled.Of course I want to keep Dr. Leibowitz. I dont see why they want to push him out, she said.
Patients of other doctors faced the same dire situation. Lung-cancer patient Jeannette Campregon, 79, received a letter from EmblemHealth saying that her internist, George Ruggiero, was terminated from her VIP High Option Medicare Advantage network.
Emblem notified her she could stay in her current plan and choose another doctor, pick a different plan to keep her doctor or call a customer-service rep for help.
Im going absolutely nuts, said Campregon, who got conflicting information from three different service reps.I dont want to change my doctor!

Obamacare Costs One Indiana School District $6 Million
But they opt to cut school workers' hours instead.
10:53 AM, Oct 25, 2013 By DANIEL HALPER
Obamacare is costing one Indiana school district $6 million, WTHI reports:
"In the past, we've told you about the new federal healthcare law and how small business and local governments have been hit," said the anchor. "The next area affected by the law could be education."
The reporter adds, "The affordable care act has had its proponents as much as it's had its opponents. In the last few months we've heard different stories from private and government employers on the cuts, they've had to make. However, in Vigo county some of those cuts will come at the cost of education."
"So what we had to do the other evening at the board meeting was to cut worker's hours to below 30 because we cannot afford to offer health care to every employee," says the superintendent
It would cost $6 million a year to provide health care to every employee who works more than 30 hours, says the superintendent.

How Healthcare.gov Can Become Exactly Like The Iraq War In 12 Easy Steps
So, how can this objectively false equivalence achieve, over time, a little more truthiness? For Healthcare.gov to become more like the Iraq War, here are the 12 things that will have to happen as the efforts to fix Healthcare.gov proceed.
In short order, the Healthcare.gov website will pull down a statue of "millions of Americans cannot afford basic health care coverage." It will be initially reported as something of an emotional turning point, but later it will come to light that it was all blown out of proportion.
Sometime next week, and in spite of the fact that the hard work of fixing the website has only just begun, a "Mission Accomplished" banner will be affixed to the Department of Health and Human Services. The president will stand in front of HHS, extolling the work that hasn't been completed.
Somehow, the ongoing work on Healthcare.gov will result in the Smithsonian being looted of hundreds of priceless antiquities.
Referring to federal IT contractors and phone-bound customer service professionals, Kathleen Sebelius says, "As you know, you go to war with the Army you have. Theyre not the Army you might want or wish to have at a later time."
Approximately $12 billion, shrink-wrapped and shipped to Healthcare.gov on pallets, will just up and disappear for no good reason.
Healthcare.gov will be referred to by President Barack Obama as a "catastrophic success."
Photos will be released depicting, among other things, a group of naked and humiliated contractors from website creator, CGI Federal, stacked atop one another in a pyramid.
Obama will bring an inedible turkey to Heathcare.gov for Thanksgiving.
Eventually, the problem that precipitated the need for the Affordable Care Act in the first place -- the fact that millions of Americans cannot afford basic health care coverage -- will be discovered, hiding in a spider hole in a remote location. "Millions of Americans cannot afford basic health care coverage" will be subsequently deloused, imprisoned, tried, and eventually hanged by masked goons, who chant "Muqtada," for what I am sure is some perfectly rational reason that you probably shouldn't worry about.
Finally, after a long, hard slog, a nominally functioning Healthcare.gov website will come online, and by all appearances work reasonably well. The one weird thing is that Healthcare.gov will be more closely tied, and sympathetic to, the Iranian regime than anyone expected.
In a final analysis, repairing the glitches in the Healthcare.gov website will be found to have caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands.
Eventually, the GOP presidential contender most closely associated with opposing the Affordable Care Act -- Ted Cruz, I guess -- will become the Republican nominee and get swept into office on Election Night. That's when Obama will suffer "Bush's fate." I guess that means neither the president or anyone in his administration or party will ever be held accountable for any of this, and the president himself will retire and become a wealthy celebrity who paints dogs and wants for nothing. When you think about it, that's a good reason to hope that Healthcare.gov becomes exactly like the Iraq War. I mean, I'm ready to start a dumb war or build a glitchy website in exchange for some of that la dolce vita right now!
Should all of these things happen, I feel confident that we will be on totally safe ground, comparing the Healthcare.gov website to the Iraq War. Though to be honest, we will only know for sure that the analogy is apt, when President Cruz starts a pointless, costly war and everyone in the media says that it's totally like that time somebody built a website to help people buy health insurance.

Oh gee! The document obtained from Edward Snowden and cited by the Guardian Newspaper as proving that the NSA monitored phone conversations of 35 world leaders is from 2006. Repeat, 2006. Does anyone remember who was president in 2006?

I am glad to see that you right whiners want to make people get permission from the government to have children.
If you don't like the number of people on Food Stamps & unemployment, then I would suggest you quit electing Republicans who threw millions out of their jobs when they created this recession.
Ever you ever wondered how many people who you say abuse the health care system were healthy in the years prior to their medical conditions?
How the f*ck do you morons justify the need for minimum wage jobs in order for businesses to survive & then call these same job holders lazy?
This is how GD dumb you are.

100% funded by the feds for a couple years then changing to 90% funded.
Yep those states will suffer from all those federal dollars flowing into their economies. Those federal dollars will lead to increases in state revenues their income taxes & sales taxes of those benefiting from those federal dollars.
You people are dumber than sh*t.

Obfuscation and insinuation from a typical DemoPuke like you.
Gee, why didn't you point out this was also in the article:
"None of the monitored world leaders is identified."
Meaning back in 2006, the NSA could have been monitoring unfriendly nations like they should be doing.
You are an unbelievably moronic DemoPuke.
