Barack Obama, our next President

There was no targeting of conservative groups moron. All that happened here is that groups applying to the IRS for special tax status were checked to see if they were engaged in political activity. They were checked, not targeted. Only one-third of the groups checked were conservative groups.
From the House hearings on this phony scandal;
Rep. Peter Roskam, R-IL: "How come only conservative groups got snagged?"
Outgoing acting IRS commissioner Steve Miller: "They didn't sir. Organizations of all walks and all persuasions were pulled in. That's shown by the fact that only 70 of the 300 organizations were tea party organizations, of the ones that were looked at by TIGTA [Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration]."
You're an idiot Frank!
Which is why mediamatters is registered as a 501(c)(3) charity...which these groups wouldn't have dared to apply for.
Also, learn the difference between simply being rejected for tax exempt status, and being harassed by the IRS and the FBI for simply applying.
Mediamatter's status alone destroys the legitimacy of Miller's statement and your pathetic "phoney scandals" regurgitation.
You inbred idiots should try harder on your own posts before you question the intelligence of someone else.

So, since Democrats are promoting a Marxist health insurance system, what idiot expects only Democrat moochers to use the freebie health care rations?
The problem with Marxist communism is it encourages the entire population to do the least they can get by with, relying on the government to distribute to them their share of what everyone else produces. This is why every Marxist communist system that has ever existed failed, and put their populations into poverty. We won't be the first exception to this rule.
Democrat dupes: doing the exact same thing and somehow expect something different to happen.
Democrats in government: know it will fail, but Marxist communist government will secure them in the position of being part of the ruling elite, and they get the first take from what everyone produces, and will distribute whatever is left after they get what they feel they deserve to everyone else.
We know ObammyCare was designed to fail with the ultimate goal of a progressive government "rescuing" the country from a healthcare crisis it created by offering a single-payer system or universal healthcare as millions lose their private insurance plans and doctors. This has been a long-time goal of big government liberals Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid, Kathleen Sebelius and Barack Obama.

And many Americans will discover too late (like after the next election) how intrusive ObammyCare will be:

ObammyCare puts the federal government between you and your doctor with an eye toward limiting your care. And in the coming months, millions of Americans are going to learn that the president’s assurances that “if you like your plan, you can keep it” is the lesser of two lies.

In 2013, the American people learned what whoppers the key promises of ObamaCare turned out to be. But the BIGGEST whopper about the Affordable Care Act is yet to be exposed: the tightening grip the federal government will have over your doctor — even if you’re paying with private insurance.

Like so many other parts of ObamaCare, the reality flies in the face of promises. In this case, it was the one where the president assured us that “you’re not going to have anybody getting in between you and your doctor in your decision making.”

If you think insurance companies were evil, just wait until politicians are dictating to your doctor to make your medical decisions.

Section 1311(h)(1)(B) of the health law gives the secretary of Health and Human Services blanket authority to dictate how doctors treat patients. Not just patients in government programs like Medicare and Medicaid, but patients with private plans they pay for themselves. On Dec. 2, 2013, we learned from the Federal Register that the rules are now being written. Starting in 2015, insurance companies will be barred from doing business with doctors who fail to comply. The rules will be offered in the name of ensuring “health-care quality,” which of course could mean anything.

“The powers given to the secretary are so broad, he or she could literally dictate how all physicians nationwide practice medicine,” warns Congressman Phil Gingrey (R. Georgia), himself a physician. Gingrey is sponsoring a bill to repeal Section 1311(h)(1)(B). Otherwise, he says, the HHS secretary — a Washington bureaucrat with no medical training — could, for example, bar doctors from doing routine mammogram screenings until female patients turn 50. In short, the federal government will be calling the shots on what patients get.

The rules have not been announced, but we have some hints from the president’s key health advisor when the Affordable Care Act was written, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel. Early on, he suggested that doctors take the Hippocratic Oath too seriously “as an imperative to do everything for the patient regardless of the cost or effects on others.”

His point was that so long as doctors are in charge, cost control would not be possible.“Vague promises of savings from cutting waste, enhancing prevention and wellness, installing electronic medical records and improving quality of care are merely lipstick cost control,” he said,“more for show and public relations than true change.” In contrast, ObamaCare empowers the HHS secretary to limit care by imposing top-down regulations directly on doctors and hospitals.

Stunning new report undermines central GOP Obamacare claim

A crucial GOP line of attack against the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is that millions of people will supposedly lose coverage thanks to shifting requirements on the health insurance exchanges — a flagrant violation of President Obama’s infamous “if you like your plan, you can keep it” proclamation. The truth has always been more complicated, of course. Republicans are constantly blurring the line between people who lose a plan and people who lose coverage. That is, many people might lose a particular insurance plan but immediately be presented with other options.

Now, a new report from the minority staff of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce has destroyed the foundation of that particular GOP claim. It projects that only 10,000 people will lose coverage because of the ACA and be unable to regain it — or in other words, 0.2 percent of the oft-cited 5 million cancellations statistic.

The report starts with an assumption that 4.7 million will receive cancellation notices about their 2013 plan.(Notably it doesn’t endorse that figure, just takes it on for the sake of argument.) But of those, who will get a new plan?

According to the report, half of the 4.7 million will have the option to renew their 2013 plans, thanks to an administrative fix this year.
Of the remaining 2.35 million individuals, 1.4 million should be eligible for tax credits through the marketplaces or Medicaid, according to the report.
Of the remaining 950,000 individuals, fewer than 10,000 people in 18 counties will lack access to an affordable catastrophic plan.

“This new report shows that people will get the health insurance coverage they need, contrary to the dire predictions of Republicans,” said Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), the ranking committee member.“Millions of American families are already benefiting from the law.”

The report is somewhat speculative, of course, since there is no central repository of data on the individual health insurance market. But the methods are clear, and the onus is now on Republicans to explain why it isn’t true.

As we’ve noted, Republicans have had an awful hard time finding people who completely lost coverage because of the ACA.(Think of the man who starred in Americans for Prosperity ads last week and whose story still hasn’t been fully explained.) Perhaps it’s because there just aren’t that many of them.

Of course, there’s no doubt that for those 10,000 people, the health-care law left them worse off than before. And by no means is the rocky political ride over for Democrats — back-end problems still present a serious threat to implementation. But as is sadly too often the case, the arguments made by Republicans simply lack a firm factual basis — and deserve much more scrutiny that they’ve received in many sectors of the mainstream press.

GOP claim? GOP guess.

so who's going to cite the guess? or find the 5 FOX dupes who lost their insurance who's story didn't change after a 6 year old fact checked it?

fat chance.

How much longer do you idiots think people will be fooled into thinking conservatives are the radicals for daring to oppose absolute totalitarianism via the "living document" BS?
There is no "Claim".

You buddy said that Republicans wanted to ban states from setting regulation on health insurance policies.

Where is your outrage Mr. States Rights?

Just as I thought. You f*cking whiners only cry State's rights when you want to ban same sex marriage & trample some groups civil rights.

The bill from Sutter General Hospital in Sacramento, Calif., said the total charges were $55,029.31 but that the patient owed only $11,119.23 because his insurance had covered the rest.
In my state, using Obamacare and selecting the first plan listed for a 30 year old making $40,000 a year (Anthem Bronze DirectAccess w/HSA) the max out of pocket is $6,350 so Obamacare is not solving the problem either, you moron!!!
You Obama voters are idiots!
Only a total idiot would think being hit with a $6350 bill is worse than a %55,000 bill.

My policy last year had a $5000 max & I guaranteed I paid a lot more in premiums that that plan had.

The other aspect you dumbsh*ts don't get is that without any insurance, the providers would take a huge loss but at least they were guaranteed payment of $44K.

You people are so desperate to find something wrong with the ACA that you are making total asses of yourselves.
