ALL Dems are accomplices in the government take over of health insurance.
There should be a national ad revealing ALL the accomplices, they should ALL be completely EXPOSED. They are trying to run and hide and pull the wool over the eyes of many.

Its Fannie and Freddie all over again.

Obamacare guarantees that the Insurance Companies will be subsidized by the US Treasury, already in HORRIFIC DEBT, if those Insurance Companies lose money on their policies issued under Obamacare.

More FASCIST LUNACY!

Not only does the website still not function properly, it's core coding will never allow it to. Some lower income families are being forced to give up their jobs and go on welfare and medicaid to survive, they can not afford the plans or the fines. When the Employer mandate hits, we will really see a major problem.

And the EMPLOYER Mandate has been delayed until after the 2014 elections by the LIAR-in-chief.

The website cost is approaching a billion dollars. With a billion dollars, I could create dozens of websites able to handle millions of visitors/enrollees, and still have plenty of money left over for hookers and cocaine. :)

What's this? Just the other day Obama was saying Look! We the web site upgrade is a success! When that turned out to be another lie, he now wants to move on?

C'mon Mr. President. For 5 years we couldn't keep you from talking about Obamacare. Now, you want to move on? Does this mean that you won't be defending your edict that abortion must be funded, even if it runs against an organization's religious beliefs?
That's dozens of cases, Mr. President, and the Supreme Court has agreed to hear two of them: Hobby Lobby and the other from Conestoga Wood Specialties.

Funny that those who fought tooth and nail to get this through are now backing off near election time. Wonder how many of their supports still lap up the shyt they throw out to them and get re-elected.

If going in with a close-minded, non-compromising, non-negotiable mindset is your idea of "fighting", then yes, I'm sure you will fight for the rest of your presidency.

And people wonder why this president can't get Congress to work together. My favorite part is when he told Republicans to give him an alternative, and then said he would fight it tooth and bone, because he would not consider an alternative. Convoluted thinking at its finest. Did a good job of alienating his fellow politicians though. Worst leader in U.S. history...

You forget how unconstitutional and shortsighted our Supreme Court has become. They called a blatant penalty for not engaging in commerce a tax and neglected that that same (apparently, now a revenue) bill did not originate in The House, which Article I, Section 7 states "All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives."

Ah, but he can't get beyond the failures attached to his pipe dream that will eventually crumble of it's own destructive nature!

The narcissistic "empty suit" that came from nowhere, with no experience in anything is now an expert in everything! Lets take a look---

Most Americans have never been exposed to schemes such as this, nor do they have any idea of how gubment run health care really functions in the real world. Simple fact of the matter is, efficiency, quality and cost containment never comes from government running anything!

The following is a precursor of what will happen when this scam of controlling our lives and one sixth of our economy is allowed to continue in completing the destruction of America as we know it.

Note: The following examples are countries that have embraced a "single payer" system that this president and his surrogates are directing their efforts towards:

the second benefit of this debacle is the noticed absence of the legion of left wing loons on topix...
moron-core pattie, crapola, responsibility, larry wolf wall st gov et al have been BLISSFULLY silent!
so, as we watch the left wing progressive inepts totally dismantle the democrat party, we're not annoyed with the idiocy of their few remaining die-hards!

a win win!

Well the rancid useless idiot left-its on topix in all fairness have their hands tied for the time being. They can't parrot their damage control lies and misinformation on the unaffordablecare obamanation cluster until one of their leftist masters gets his azz down from over his head and comes up with some new desperation lies.

When you have a dumbed down electorate that have been exposed for years to Socialist indoctrination through a dumbed down "progressive" PubEd system devoid of History, Civics and Constitutional studies. Our Founders were diametrically opposed to any philosophy that challenged our liberties and FREEDOM to choose for ourselves and what's best for our families. The founding fathers would be turning in their graves if they could see what's happened to their dream that has been the envy of the world for over 200 years!

The Constitution only gives people the right to pursue happiness. You have to
catch it yourself." - Benjamin Franklin

A government big enough to give you everything you want,is strong
enough to take everything you have..Thomas Jefferson (1743 -1826

I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government
from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of
them.-Thomas Jefferson

My reading of history convinces me that most bad
government results from too much government.- Thomas Jefferson

I go on the principle that a public debt is a public curse, and in a Republican
Government a greater curse than any other - James Madison

When you run in debt; you give to another power over your liberty- Benjamin Franklin

I think, myself, that we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too
many parasites living on the labor of the industrious. I believe it might be
much simplified to the relief of those who maintain it." - Thomas Jefferson

Nothing is so well calculated to produce a death-like torpor in the
country as an extended system of taxation and a great national debt.- William
Cobbett

And so it tiz!

The down side to getting the web site up and running is people can now see what insurance is really going to cost them compared to the insurance they thought they could keep.
