" Without the young and healthy, the exchanges will enter a "death spiral" where only the older and sicker participate and price of insurance premiums will increase precipitously."

Obamacare doomed for failure??

Well lookee here.......

"Considered the climate Bible by governments around the world, the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report is meant to be a scientific analysis of the most authoritative research.

Instead, it references literature generated by Greenpeace – an organization known more for headline-grabbing publicity stunts than sober-minded analysis.(Eight IPCC-cited Greenpeace publications are listed at the bottom of this post.)"

In the last two years we have averaged a mass shooting every 3 1/2 weeks.

Imagine, what used to occur one in a decade, now happens every few weeks.

We have had dozens of children massacred at school, dozens massacred at colleges, dozens massacred at work places, and even on military bases.

Forget terrorists, they hardly count. Americans regularly massacre Americans at a rate that makes any potential threat from terrorists a far, far, far, distant and remote concern.

Despite this wholesale slaughter, any attempt to address the problem, by anyone, Right, Left, or Center, is beaten back.

Is this the new "normal" in America ?

Are we willing to accept the slaughter of our children and and friends as the "price to be paid" for a society where tens of millions are completely disenfranchised,(economically, politically, and socially), and given easy access to weapons an African or Asian Warlord could only dream about.

Just wondering.

It’s a requirement, when the Supremes say it’s a choice. Which do I believe?? The Supremes of course, since they are the ones who usurped the Constitutional Authority of the House to set the Budget.

Many will choose not to buy the insurance and the FEDs can’t do a dam thing about it.

While negative views on the law continue to outpace positive ones this month, a majority of the public says they disapprove of cutting off funding as a way to stop the law’s implementation. The most commonly chosen reason for opposition to defunding the ACA is that “using the budget process to stop a law is not the way our government should work,” followed by a belief that “without funding the law will be crippled and won’t work as planned,” and feeling that the law will be “a good thing for the country.”

And those who continually cite that "US healthcare isn't even in the top 20" always seem to fail to mention that nationalization/socialization of the various nations' healthcare systems is one of the main criteria in determining how "good" each individual nation's system is considered. If the system isn't nationalized/socialized that alone drops its ranking dramatically. Makes the use of those "surveys" both self-serving and disingenuous.

How about answering the following question. What does it tell you about Obamacare knowing that Congress demanded that they and their staffs be exempted? Of course, Obama will NEVER have to worry about having to deal with his crappy law. Seriously, what do you think about that?
What it tells me is that Right Wing Whackos believe ever unsubstantiated rumor that comes down the pipe, read it and weep....

Congress and an Exemption from ‘Obamacare’?
Posted on May 3, 2013 | Updated on Aug. 7, 2013
http://www.factcheck.org/2013/05/congress-and...

...But there is no bill in Congress calling for an exemption from the health care law. In fact, members of Congress and their staffs face additional requirements that most Americans don’t have to meet.

Under the health care law, their insurance coverage will have to switch from the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, the group of private insurance plans that cover 8 million federal employees and retirees, to the exchanges created by the law.

...So, why is the false “exempt” claim making the Facebook rounds? There is reportedly concern on Capitol Hill that the Office of Personnel Management, which administers the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, won’t be able to smoothly transition members and their staffs into an exchange. The concern, as a Roll Call story explained, was that the government wouldn’t be able to make contributions toward the federal employees’ premiums, at least at the beginning of 2014. That would mean employees would pick up the whole tab for their insurance policies. Right now, the government pays 72 percent of premiums on average.

The “exempt” claims were sparked by a Politico report on April 24 that said secret talks were being held by lawmakers to change the requirement to get insurance through the exchanges because of this concern. The headline on the story said “Lawmakers, aides may get Obamacare exemption.”

...We contacted the Office of Personnel Management and received this statement from an administration official:“Members of Congress will not receive anything that is not available to the public. The law doesn’t allow them to get insurance from FEHB, they are going to get insurance on the market place, just like uninsured individuals and small businesses.”

We can’t say what did or didn’t happen in any secret meetings. But we can say that no bill has been introduced to exempt members of Congress from the Affordable Care Act — and they were never exempt in the first place. Even if, hypothetically, Congress were to nullify the provision requiring members and their staffs to get insurance on the exchanges, it still wouldn’t amount to an exemption from the law. Lawmakers and staffers would be subject to the mandate to have health insurance or pay a fine, just as everyone else is.

Let me understand correctly; you are quoting a poll...
The poll is a measure of those who were polled, it does tend to confirm that Right Wing Whackos represent a teeny-tiny minority of the population.

Opinion On ACA Continues To Tilt Negative, But Majority Disapproves Of Defunding

Public opinion on the ACA as a whole continues to tilt negative this month, with 37 percent saying they have a favorable view of the law and 42 percent expressing an unfavorable view, shares that have held relatively steady since February of this year.

Still, a majority of Americans (57 percent) say they disapprove of the idea of cutting off funding as a way to stop the law from being implemented, a finding that has been consistent in Kaiser Health Tracking Polls since January 2011. Republicans and those with an unfavorable view of the law overall are more likely to approve of attempts to defund the ACA, but even among these groups, about a third (34 percent and 33 percent, respectively) say they disapprove.

The most commonly chosen reason for opposition to defunding the ACA is that “using the budget process to stop a law is not the way our government should work,”(named as a major reason by 69 percent in this group), followed by a belief that “without funding the law will be crippled and won’t work as planned,”(56 percent) and feeling that the law will be “a good thing for the country”(49 percent). Fewer (35 percent) say their main reason for opposing defunding efforts is that they’ve “heard enough about the health care law and it’s time to move on to something else.”

You will also notice in that poll,or maybe another one with similar numbers in the favor and oppose columns, that most are not in favor of killing the law, but making it better. Most people who aren't on Medicare realize something has to be fixed, and this law can be fixed.

You people fear or hate things you don't understand, Muslims, Gays, Catholic's and the health care law to name a few of a very
long list.

Learning about those things might be easier on your heart than the pure hate route.
Well stated.

Darn, that's strange. All the people I know had no problem getting work in the seventies. But they were honest, reliable and trained to DO something. You are so out of touch, I feel sorry for you.
