Really again slaps these tea-baggers around…

Just think back to the glee that was met by these tea-baggers on here to the news of the bad rollout of the Affordable Care Act; how they proclaimed the end to OBAMACARE and how people wouldn’t enroll… and now with the great news of over 10 million people signing up and that number climbing every day the right is now desperately pushing lies and misinformation about people losing their insurance…

But hey, it’s our turn to celebrate with glee… kind of like we did in 2008… in 2012… when OBAMACARE passed the Senate… and the House… when the Supreme Court ruled it Constitutional… when Romney lost all 3 debates… when Obama got Osama… when the Stock Market hit record highs… when unemployment dropped below 7%...

LOL, you get the point.

Obviously it does as the article clearly points out. But im guessing you chose not to read it? Do you even know what the conclusion of the article came to regarding the question?

Here, let me yet again help you slow people whom choose to reply to articles you clearly did not read.

Some points from the article:

"Indeed, the number of people who thus far have signed up to receive insurance through the exchanges (2.1 million) is merely a subset of the number of people whose plans were canceled (4.7 million); it makes little sense to compare them because the number of people on exchanges will be a smaller number than the number of people whose plans were not compliant with the law.(At this point, it’s unclear who never had insurance in the first place.) It’s kind of like saying the number of people who only eat apples is smaller than the number of people who only eat apples, oranges or bananas."

"Of these three statements, Barrasso gets the closest to framing it correctly. But it is still a question of apples and oranges because listeners might still be left with the mistaken impression that most people with canceled policies ended up with no health insurance."

Also note that they ranked this as 2 Pinocchios. You'll have to do your own research regarding their pinocchio rating scale.

You people sometimes...

No, it doesn't because it's common knowledge that over five million Americans and counting have had their insurance cancelled under that incredibly stupid, dog and pony show joke of a law.

Trying for the last two weeks to cancel my old insurance with Blue Shield - two more emails sent today and again no reply.

Why should it be so difficult to cancel Blue Shield for a better insurance deal where we save $1800 per month in 2014?

Perhaps Blue Shield will answer that question.

Only a blithering idiot would send two e-mails, then sit around waiting for a reply when all it takes is one phone call. Try harder, fool.

The bots try so hard to create doubt and be witty. They are half successful. They create doubt about believing liberals.

The USA should follow an example the USSR and to make health care completely free.
Paid health care it is very bad, it violates the declaration of human rights of the UN guaranteeing to people access in treatment, moreover at paid medicine doctors aren't interested in treatment of patients that even worse often happens that doctors treat healthy people and even do them operations.
