Well, just in case the diva is finished with his pity party and just in case anyone is interested in some real political news, here's a slice of reality for you to consider...

CNN Poll: 75% say most Republicans in Congress don't deserve re-election

In a sign of the political hangover congressional Republicans are suffering in the wake of the government shutdown, three-quarters of Americans in a new national poll say that most GOP members of Congress don't deserve to be re-elected.

A CNN/ORC International survey released Monday also found a majority saying that the Republicans' policies are too extreme...

This entire mess it going to take at least 5 years to work out.. Really what was wrong with delaying the ind. mandate a year??
"Coverage starts January 1st, enrollment goes on for a long time after that before the penalty kicks in."
What 3 months?? Have you ever really dealt with IRS?? They don't give you a 3 month credit.. You owe and owe with interest combined..
"Do you think that just because I prefer to use facts when discussing this that means I support the ACA?"
I have no idea what you support.. You haven't given any facts regarding your healthcare or insurance plans or how they will effect your family members..

You don't need to know the details of my families financial or insurance planning to understand that I never supported the ACA.

Universal health care yes, but the ACA is another beast altogether and I've said so from day one.

The thing is, we're stuck with it now. Pretending otherwise does no good.

As far as the individual mandate, I don't have a problem with delaying it. What in the world makes you think that just because I thought the way the repubs went about it was stupid means that I support the mandate?

Nope! The penalty starts if you don't have insurance by Jan. 2014.

Yep, so there are five months left for people to get coverage before there are any penalties.

I simply stated a fact.

If DiP wants to pretend he's got it all figured out he should get his facts straight.
Do you think that just because I prefer to use facts when discussing this that means I support the ACA?
45 days isn't "a long time after that" jackasson. You are wrong and you know it and so does any one with a forth grade level of math skills. Obama told us there are 48 million americans without health insurance and that we can't wait to start penalizing them because that is how he plans on funding it. Enjoy!

Wrong.

It's March 31st.
----------

There are 3 key dates you'll want to mark on your calendar:

October 1, 2013: Marketplace open enrollment started

January 1, 2014: Health coverage can start

March 31, 2014: Open enrollment ends

https://www.healthcare.gov/what-key-dates-do-...

---------

Coverage starts January 1st for those already enrolled in the government plan.

Everyone is required to have coverage of some sort by March 31st, 2014. Anyone not covered by that date faces a penalty.

Sorry freebird, but you're wrong.

It's really not that hard to look it up and I am getting tired of arguing about facts.

We all have our opinion, but we share the same facts.

Nope, not interested in your personal information at all.

You said you were published. I simply asked for a link to your published material.

A simple "No" would have sufficed, but then you're known for being an azzhole, a braggart and an extremely insecure little pendejo.

March 31st is a lot longer than 45 days away from January first DiP.

So much for your math skills huh?

Enrollment started October 1st

Coverage starts January 1st

Open enrollment ends March 31st and there are no penalties until then.

You can insist otherwise, but you're still wrong...as usual.

75% of the American population couldn't pass an enlistment exam let alone understand the US government budget process. The american main stream media is as politically divided as the american public. The only news we get is either on one extreme of the issue or another. It's so bad that none of it is credible. CNN is owned and operated by the corporate world. So to is the FOX news and MSNBC. If you get your news from corporate owned media then you fall into the new world order where the rich get richer, the poor become more dependent and the middle class gets destroyed. Enjoy!

.....In 2014 the fee for uninsured children is $47.50 per child. The most a family would have to pay in 2014 is $285.

It's important to remember that someone who pays the fee won't get any health insurance coverage. They still will be responsible for 100% of the cost of their medical care.

After open enrollment ends on March 31, 2014, they won't be able to get health coverage through the Marketplace until the next annual enrollment period, unless they have a qualifying life event.
Minimum essential coverage

To avoid the fee in 2014 you need insurance that qualifies as minimum essential coverage. If you're covered by any of the following in 2014, you're considered covered and don't have to pay a penalty:

Any Marketplace plan, or any individual insurance plan you already have
Any employer plan (including COBRA), with or without “grandfathered” status. This includes retiree plans.....

REWBA trusted y'all and look at how you treated it. You and your socks encouraged REWBA to go after Ralff and his socks for the way Ralff was treating Rose and NTR. Next thing ya know ole REWBA is banned for saying American, except replacing "an" with "unt", but it wasn't the people REWBA was saying it to who reported it. It was Rico and X and NTR and Rose that made those reports. NTR and Rose even acknowledged that they had reported "some" of REWBA's posts. Then there was REWBA II and how long did that last? Who made the reports? OK. I already know who. Then REWBA III, IV and V ... all bit the bullet. But not for any profanity or rudeness but because Y'all pointed out to the moderator that REWBA was snubbing it's nose in her face. It had nothing to do with the moderator. It was X MAN who didn't like it that REWBA was a better poet and RICO who didn't like it that REWBA was more likable. REWBA VI was created and got a message from a certain someone who explained what certain posters were doing so REWBA VI turned into Don't Panic before it's first post. That didn't stop y'all from crying to the moderator about it though. I know how many times y'all did it. Jealous much? How y'all like me now?
It seems I encouraged Rewba to debate with Ralff once LOL. I agreed with some of both of their points of view..
