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.
well, he did say that when he was elected, the sea would stop rising and the earth would begin to heal. We are the ones we've been waiting for, etc.....pretty bold talk, maybe he believes it too?

Some states like my own state of Washington have
done quite well in enrolling people in the
Affordable Care Act, 30 to 40 thousand.

The states having the most trouble are Republican
states where the governor and legislature are
enemies of the ACA and are making is as difficult
as possible for low wage citizens to join up..

Just another front on the constant war against
poor Americans (much to the satisfaction of
the tea party people), being waged by the GOP.

Not near as long as the criminality of Bush and Cheney.
There are thousands of dead Americans to prove it.

Never bet against Black; tea-baggers still haven’t learned this.
Pat, you are wrong. Romney Kare did not have the problems this clown created. No one lost their insurance in MA. The people that needed to buy insurance were able to buy insurance regardless of their medical condition. My son had one employee that he could not insure and he was able to buy a policy under Romney Kare that covered him because he had a rare blood disease. Oh yes, Romney Kare only had 75 pages compared to 2700 pages of Obummer Kare. People are required to buy insurance in MA or face a 2K fine. If you do not file a MA state tax form they do not know what insurance if any that you have. OH YES how is your insurance doing under Obummer Kare.

by 2007 the noose had been tighten around the throat of America with the Bush policies that continue to this day to drive American's debt. It began in 2001 with the first round of Tax cuts and in 2003 with the second round and that Medicare Part D program, add in the two wars and the massive expansion of the Federal Government and you have 15 to 20 years of fiscal obligations left by Bush and the Republicans after the largest tax cuts in history.

He was trying to destroy America with those policies and the fiscal outlook for years to come.

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.

Wow, you've got the rhetoric and hyperbole memorized! Good for you. Too bad you're full of crap. Just because the President, his administration and all the talking heads talk down to the American people like we're all drooling idiots, it doesn't mean we are.

Millions of Americans are self insured and many of them are highly edjumicated business owners, entrepreneurs and consultants. They surely know how to read the fine print.

If you're buying your own insurance and you're a fifty-two year old, single male...you don't need OB-GYN coverage, maternity, birth control and you probably don't go to a pediatric doctor. If you've got 20-20 vision, you don't need to see an eye doctor every year or carry coverage for prescription eye glasses. You won't need mammograms.

So, why should you have to pay for coverage you will never need or use?

If you're that same male and your state allows it (ours did), you get to decide how much coverage you want. If you're rather well off and decide you only want catastrophic coverage, you were free to get that.

This health care debacle is the biggest Ponzi scheme ever perpetrated on the American people. We're all going to have to pay for a whole lot of coverage that we will never, ever need...all to pay for those who won't be paying at all. And the more you earn, the more it's going to cost you. Leveling the playing field. That's all this is, so quit with the nonsense.

Washington, where four out of five who have enrolled are going on Medicaid. How are you guys going to pay for that?

Maryland, as of last Friday: 285,000 Medicaid, 3100 paying enrollees.

Here in our state, we got slammed with an avalanche of new taxes this year, after rather substantial increases last year because more than double the amount of people received Medicaid than was projected when they did last years budget, leaving the state $2 billion in the hole. That deficit is going to skyrocket. Guess how they're going to try and raise more revenue.

Where were you over the last 15 to 20 years as complaint were filing up about the abuses in the Health Care insurance industry. Premiums were eating up profits, keeping policies for employees consumed more and more fiscal resources of employer so much so that wage compensation could not be address and inflation typically outpaced wages.

Anyone that didn't notice the impact from run away and out of control Health Care Insurance cost were:

1. not employed,
2. didn't have comprehensive health care coverage they paid for.

If you're self insured, then paying the fine is cost efficient.

How is that an issue?

However if you're in a group pool and those services are part of the comprehensive coverage package offered to you, than you most definitely do have to accept those services you don't need in order to benefit from the pool pricing, that's how pool insurance works across the board.

That's not a new concept.

Now you can still purchase catastrophe coverage, it also now because of regulations the Insurer has to follow include 10 non negotiable essential services to qualify.

However, self insurance is still an option, and part of the cost is the penalty.

With the Republicans and Tea Bag Republican having a 22% approval rating it looks like America is on to YOU and 4 in 5 Americans thoroughly reject your idea, politics and course for America, so the flinging you feel is coming out of the right wing extremist.

Americans are on to your deceit and lies are frankly fed up with the Republicans in Congress, or maybe you also don't think the 22% approval is correct just as you didn't believe the polls leading to the Romney embarrassing defeat 10 months ago against President Obama.....

In any event wake up and step into reality.......... you've been rejected in America. Look at your collective Favorability rating.... Ignoring it doesn't change the realness of your situation. Close to 40/% is still double the favorability Rating of the Republicans and Tea Bags across America.

You just keep telling yourself that.

We the People, are on to you.

Obama and the Left aren't gonna be able to shovle your bullshit to the American public anymore. Obama has been proven to be the liar that we on the right told you he was from the beginning.

You keep trying to polish that turd.

Obamacare represents the final dying gasp of Progressivism.

Long Live the Republic.
