Typical… the exact thing happened with Romneycare… next year OBAMACARE will be rolling along at full strength and then we’ll see the right crying about something else.

Never bet against Black; tea-baggers still haven’t learned this.

Obama needs 7,000,000 26-34 year olds to sign up to cover the cost of the elderly and the sick....NOW he just needs 7,000,000 MORE!

actually, he's lucky the site collapsed, or the media might have to report that you CAN'T keep the coverage you have, like Obama promised, pledged and vowed you could!

any of you die hard liberals finally getting the picture that YOU TOO will be screwed?

11/8/2005:

The rollout of the new Medicare drug benefit has been anything but smooth. At a news briefing yesterday, Mark B. McClellan, head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, provided a how-to demonstration of the much-awaited Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Finder, which he said would be available on www.medicare.gov by 3 p.m. It wasn’t.… Problem is, the Medicare folks have had some trouble getting the tool up and running. The original debut date was Oct. 13, but officials delayed it, citing the Jewish holiday Yom Kippur. Next it was promised on Oct. 17, but that day, too, came and went without personalized plan comparisons being available. Late in the month, McClellan told reporters that the feature definitely would be ready before Nov. 15, the date when seniors can begin signing up for the drug benefit. Yesterday [November 8], McClellan announced that the time had come.… But the tool itself appeared to be in need of fixing yesterday. Visitors to the site could not access it for most of the first two hours. When it finally did come up around 5 p.m., it operated awfully slowly.

...the teahadists weren't even born yet, so they don't remember the Part D debacle. Their ignorance is their bliss. LMAO.

The problem with liberals is that they really don't get it. I really do think that they believe that Obama is God because he can lie, lie, and lie and they will still support him. But what is the saying what goes around comes around.

How prophetic of you. teahadism has been based on lies since 2007. Now, as you stated, it has come around and teahadists are getting it handed back to them....

'28% of Americans who say they favor the Tea Party. 56% of Americans disapprove of the Tea Party.'

'rafael cruz...just 23% of Americans approve, 42% rate him unfavorable.'

'rafael’s takes hit amongst his own party: favorable ratings dropped 12 points among Republicans.'

'39% of Republicans approve of the job their congressional delegates.'

Yep...she's come around.

hahahahahahahahahaha

It's only possible that cancellations and price increases of Health Care Insurance premiums and policies are a new phenomenon if individuals making a huge deal now of what is transpiring had never been exposed to using and paying for a policy.

For the last 15 to 20 years American consumers in the Health Care market had been taken advantage of by paying for what they think is comprehensive coverage only to find out they were not covered for health catastrophes until after needing those services when coming down with a sever illness and had received some treatment.

That being the case in America caused a intellectual divide in the Health Care market among consumers.

Anyone complaining and ignorantly celebrating the difficulties of the rollout are demonstrating their inability to understand comprehensive coverage in the marketplace when it comes to health care policies, or what is best practices in prevention and care for themselves.

That's a bit overzealous being that there is a 22% approval rating for the party you support and zero approval for the ideas and alternatives that Republicans may present as an option to anything that President Obama proposes in America.

Your ideas and politics have and continued to be rejected and the butt of jokes in the minds of adults with the power of the vote in America.

The Health Care debate is no longer a debate but a clear demonstration of the intellectual divide in America between the supporters of two ideologies. The American Health Care Insurance system has been collapsed and dysfunctional for more than 2 decades. Only those who have been active in the market and are familiar with the practices and standards of the market are keenly aware, those of you who aren't were not exposed to the market because of the prohibitive cost associated with purchasing comprehensive coverage and receiving adequate care.

There can be no mistake about that diagnosis. It is impossible not to be familiar with cancellations and price increases for no justifiable reasons on an annual basis for decades, to the point it was not possible for individuals or employers to control their cost to cover themselves of their employees.

Some of you aren't bright enough to realize that over the last 12 years you were not receiving raises on your jobs that furnished access to group pools because the cost annually to your employer made it impossible to increase you compensations that were being eaten up by the cost of providing you health care.

They are disappointed that they can't brag how brilliant Obama is any more because he's well, just dumb, but they still haven's got it that Oturdacare isn't going to be free.
That's how far behind they are.
They are like stunned by all this talk about MORE money for Oturdocare.
It's got to sink in slowly with democrats.
The poor things aren't too swift.

George Bush and the Republicans lied endlessly, to you our allies and neighbors. The cost of those Bush Lies beginning with the invasion & occupation of Iraq cost America and her families more than 4500 Death in the pursuit for mythical weapons and some connection to the tragedy at the World Trade Center.

It's rather hypocritical to celebrate in your distorted way what you perceive to be lies of Obama, when you stood fast and supported the clear lies and justification of the Bush administration.

At the very least be consistent.

In your freaking dreams.

The Tea Party is just getting started.

You will fondley look back at the 2010 mid-terms and recall them as the good old days. Because in 2014 we will kick your Progressive asses again.

Progressivism is dying right in front of your eyes.

You're too blind to see it.

People are not "happy" with their current policy they are content with the their current price and doctor. They blindly throw money at things like health care, they might complain but assume there is nothing that can be done about it. This is part of the problem with health care COSTS. People do not realize how much it actually costs to buy insurance especially when they don't have to write the checks unlike someone getting payroll deductions at work. Nor do they worry about the cost of the provider bill since someone else will pay for it.

The new more comprehensive coverage does come with the price of higher premiums and taxes which will offset any benefit. Will an older adult who no longer has need for maternity benefits gain from someone else getting benefits or will their health decline due to problems stemming from financial stress.

Spot on, people aren't happy but their hands were tied and they never had a choice because of the cost of comprehensive coverages. I've been covered all my life with good group coverage and comprehensive coverage that I know I didn't need but there was to many other elements with a family and children I definitely needed.

That part of the pool coverage because stepping out into individual coverage is prohibitive, period.

The older you get the more expensive, so to balance out the pool there has to be younger subscribers, the women's care package up to now was more expensive because of the maternity care provisions contained in their policies, so now to balance out the pool cost those provision are just basic essential elements to all policies. That's just how risk pooling works.

It's nonsensical for individuals to be complaining about price increases and cancellations when that has been the operating standard of Health Care Insurers in America over the last 15 years consistently, whether you are in a group plan provided by your employer or some commercial association or on the individual market place, the premiums and drops was a way of life dropping older consumer in favor of signing up younger healthy subscribers, that's how the Insurers made their money.

People today in dissent are arguing against consumer protections that didn't exist prior to ACA, that's clear signaling those are individuals who had no insurance.

That's true but Bush's devastating policies are left behind in tact to haunt America for another 5 years.

George Bush left the contracted and signed fiscal obligations protected by Republicans hell bent on destroying and obstructing America.
