The disappearance of the plane last week reminded me of the plane the Egyptian Pilot took to the Ocean off the coast of Florida praising Allah all the while, killing all on board, and not a word about his Muslim background. It happened while the Hillbilly *hore Hopper was President.

In our family we have one policy it covers the 5 of us, that is not considered 5 sign ons. The Government admits 20%of all their enrollees have not paid. If we didn't pay we would not have one sign on. Got it?

He's dead now, and so is the Republican party of which he was such a great leader. All that's left of it, are the rabid religious nuts, the corporatists, and those who refuse to vote for either of them, but still claim to be 'Republicans'. There hasn't been a Centrist politician elected to High Public Office in almost a Century.

There was an interview today about Obamascam, and the Doctor said according to the W H there is 6,000,000 enrollees, and that 80% have paid into their premium. Let's assume that is true. It didn't come from anyone in the Obama Administration so they had no reason to lie. That still leaves over 300,000,000 people not signed up. Now there is no way of knowing how many are exempt, and no way of knowing if Obamascam will ever pay for itself. Most of the young people who hang out with my children will not sign up. Two are Union Journeymen so they are exempt. One is going into the military so they are exempt, but what of the rest? Well, they are entry level people so they will pay the fine. Who is going to pay for this scam? We are. Everyone who works will pay taxes, and at some point the taxpayer will be called on to pick up the tab.
Good lord.... Have you read the law that you hate so much....300 million haven't signed up? What kind of education did you get that you don't even understand plain English as it is written?

If you have health insurance, you do not have to sign up for ACA's health exchanges, it would be a smart consumer habit to at least look up the prices and compare and see if you can save but you aren't required to sign up.

Please read up before you make a fool out of yourself further. It makes real conservatives look bad when you open your mouth like this.

You seem to be unaware of all the waivers. Now if you are the smart one, tell us exactly how many people have been granted waivers by Obama.

Since when could the 85% of people satisfied with their insurance keep their Doctor and policy?

Is there a rational reason we have to spend $ 2 Trillion to help a handful of people?

"WASHINGTON -- More than 7 million people have signed up for health care coverage through federal and state exchanges created under President Obama's signature health care law, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi confirmed Tuesday

With the announcement that came hours after the March 31 deadline to sign up for coverage, the Obama administration has cleared the initial projection for enrollees set by the Congressional Budget Office --a goal that had seemed out of reach after a rocky launch to the online federal marketplace last fall.

After meeting with President Obama at the White House on Tuesday, Pelosi said that "over 7 million people" have signed up for health care.

"Many more people now have affordable, quality health care," Pelosi said.

Obama is set to deliver remarks at 4:15 p.m. in Rose Garden about the Affordable Care Act.

After a surge of last-minute enrollment on Monday -- the technical deadline to sign up for health care or face a penalty -- administration officials began expressing confidence that they would meet or exceed the 7 million mark for signups.

The announcement was embraced as hopeful news by Democrats facing reelection in November, who had been feeling the weight of Obama's low popularity numbers and Republican attacks on the law.

But Mo Elleithee, the Democratic National Committee communications director, noted that public opinion over the health care law has slowly been turning in favor of Democrats. On Monday, an ABC News/Washington Post poll found that support for the law hit a record high at 49%.

"For years, Republicans have been jumping up and down, breathlessly screaming that the Affordable Care Act would be a 'disaster,' " Elleithee wrote in an e-mail to reporters "Guess what? APRIL FOOL'S! The joke is on them."

Pelosi predicted health care won't hurt Democrats at the polls."

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2...

"(CNN)– Affordable Care Act enrollment is now on track to hit the White House's original target of 7 million people.

This after a surge in sign-ups on enrollment deadline day.

A senior administration official says healthcare.gov saw more than 4.8 million visits and 2 million calls were made to the call center Monday, raising optimism the goal would be met.

The administration is still waiting for final numbers."

http://www.tucsonnewsnow.com/story/25128134/a...

Unless you have sources debunking the numbers, I will wait as well for final confirmation, but everything looks as if the numbers are going to surpass projected goals. Since everyone's eyes are fixed on the numbers, I would highly doubt the final tally will be less than stated.

I'm confident that overall, the program is a success.
If your GOP candidates feel otherwise - they are welcome to run with that.
It would only underscore the fact that they have no positive ideas of their own to run on - but then the voters are pretty accustomed to that from the GOP by now.
On what basis are you making that claim?

Wet dreams?
