Now that 40 House Democrats - we'll just round 39 up by one - have joined the other side - the side Obama and Reid called "traitors", "hostage takers", "racists", "anarchists", etc., etc., etc...

...wonder what Obama's next move is...after he's finished having a temper tantrum, I mean...and Jarrett manages to calm him down by reminding him he's still the king in her eyes and she'll figure out what he should do?

Tea Party loses in the end
This jaw-dropping Obammyism on ObammyCare is dedicated to you:

"The marketplace offers new options with better coverage and tax credits that might help you bring down the cost."

Key word: "Might."

Another major departure from the president's Obamacare sell job.

As Phil Klein pointed out yesterday, based on HHS' own numbers, only a fraction of those who've applied for Obamacare coverage so far have been deemed eligible for subsidies.

And presumably, only some of those eligible applicants would receive enough taxpayer money to lower their overall costs.

Obamacare's average premium hike nationwide is a 41 percent jump -- which does not include soaring out-of-pocket expenses caused by rising deductibles and copays.

But, but, but...isn't ObammyCare "free?"

Well, surprise, I disagree. The November 12th poll by Quinnipiac shows that 75% of Democrats approve of the way Obama is handling healthcare. 79% of Democrats approve of the way Obama is handling is job and 86% believe he is honest and trustworthy. The same number trust that Obama will do a better job handling healthcare than Republicans in Congress.
His low number is with his handling of immigration...only 66% of Democrats approve (probably because it is on the back burner at the moment).
Let's face it...we are a country divided down political lines like never before and, IMO, we have the obstructionist Republicans in congress to thank for it. You people are only cutting your own throats by continuing down this negative path.

"You disagree", and then post the Quinnipiac poll that has baruck down well below 40% approval?

Chimp, you have No clue, and NO say. You WILL be crushed in the midterms, and not even the 37 hypocrite dumocrats that tried to save their political bacon by crossing party lines o vote with Republicans today on the House baruck btch-slap will be spared.

You are either mentally-defective, or just a wishful dreamer. Either way, you're a failure....

Typical of you. You missed the point. People who can't afford to pay higher premiums go without (including drivers). They are left with no choice. Obamacare gives the uninsured a choice. I don't really care about the under insured. If they had taken more responsibility for their health needs, they wouldn't have a problem.
Yet here you sit all day; a wart hog ignoring her OWN mental health needs......

How many branches of government are there?
What are they?
What are their function according to the constitution?
First answer is 3.
Second answer is Legislative, Judicial, Executive and they each have a individual constitutional function which they must complete or be in breach of their individual oaths of office according to the constitution.
Third answer, is the Legislative Branch writes bills and must passed them through the House of Representatives and the Senate then the bill is either signed into law by the president or the bill is vetoed. The Judicial Branch prosecutes/enforce the laws that have been violated. Executive Branch enforces and crafts the policy, both foreign and domestic that follows our constitution to improve America and Americans ability to prosper and grow to their full potential as citizens. The Executive's most honored responsibility is to do NO HARM to the American People.
ACA has turned upside down the healthcare industry in our country. So far, over 5 million have lost their healthcare insurance some are these millions are in critical care facilities fighting for their lives. How many have gain healthcare under ACA? 106,000 get insurance and over 5 million lose their healthcare.
This is a travesty, debacle and is unlawful. You can't take away from one group that paid for healthcare to give it to another group there is no ethics, morals or constitutionality to that act.

This is where you and a diminishing numbers of liberals who also think like you miss the boat completely.

No one wants Obama to make choices for us.

His choices cost a lot more and force us to pay for things we neither want or need.

And he can't stop lying to us - about everything.

It's not that hard to understand really.

I really think this country is doomed when you see how Dems and Reps buy votes and the country is broke.
It makes no sense except for the politicians.

They are sooo comical!! After voting four dozen times to repeal Obamacare and shutting down the government, they just can't contain their glee.
