They will also discover that just because you have health insurance, a doctor doesn't have to accept them as patients. Even with insurance, many family practitioners have waiting lists for new patients. Especially the good ones.
Good luck finding a doctor who will see you. You can show up and beg but they can refuse to see you and suggest you go to the ER if it is so urgent.
Even if you are on the doctors patient list, you may have to wait several days for an appointment to see the doctor.
Once Obamacare is fully implemented, the people who blindly supported it's passage will discover that health insurance doesn't mean health care.
True even I had to be on a waiting list for 6 weeks to establish a primary care doc when I moved up here.. Then my advantage plan went bankrupt and had to get another.. The second time around I named my cardiologist as my primary care doc since I was already one of his patients and got rid of that co-pay as well..

Tell me are they going to start closing down the free health clinics now??

Showdown Shutdown: Kanye vs Kimmel - House vs Senate
http://communities.washingtontimes.com/neighb...
Congress has resolved each fabricated “crisis” by adopting a Continuing Resolution (“CR”). A CR is a type of appropriations legislation that allows Congress to fund government agencies if a formal appropriations bill has not been signed into law by the end of the Congressional fiscal year, which ends at midnight on September 30.
This isn’t a new phenomenon. In fact, Congress has only passed a timely budget six times in the last 39 years. Essentially, the abuse of CRs allows the parties to play political games rather than behave in a conscientious manner.
Has the political self-flagellation ever gone too far? Yes.
Our federal Government has been shut down on 17 occasions. However, this one might be different.
And the Senate, despite legal requirements, hasn't passed a budget in at least 5 years. Harry Reid should be impeached for obstruction of worst kind.

Bullsh*t. The Democrat-controlled Senate refused to work over the entire weekend, pointedly showing up at 2 PM one day. They're acting like a bunch of spoiled children.
The radicals are in the White House and the Senate. Obama has long been a far-left radical. The press had shown no interest in exposing his past socialist connections or his mentoring by avowed communist. The Senate is mostly a bunch of tired, old hippies from the 60's. Between Obama and the Dems there hasn't been an original thought since 1972.
This is an attempt to hold the nation hostage and force a deeply unpopular bill down our throats. The election of 2010 removed Obama's "mandate". The election of 2012 reaffirmed that removal. That's why he no longer has a majority in the House. The only reason that idiot is still in office is that he lied about how he'd "work with" his opponents. Plus he got the brainless vote of the left and many others due to his race.
Now Obama's true radicalism has been exposed at the IRS, which his minions turned into a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Democrat party. They used the awesome powers of the IRS to stifle free speech and help re-elect Obama. That's the same agency that has the key role in enforcing ObamaCare! And it's totally 100% corrupt! One of its key leaders took the fifth to avoid prison!
Your views are colored by your gay rights issues. I understand and sympathize. But Obama is, and always has been, a far-left socialist and anti-western radical. Just read his damn book!
This is just another Alinsky-like radical move: cause pain and destruction, then rebuild it to your liking in the ashes of what you wrecked.
Yeah, right.

Can you explain to me why the tea party House refused to even allow a vote on a clean CR?

A faction of the republican base has decided that everyone else has to do things their way or they'll burn the house down.

It's not going to work that way and when this is all said and done their influence both within the party and on the national stage is going to be greatly diminished.

Personally, I think at this point the dems should refuse to even discuss the issue until and unless the House allows a vote on the clean version of the CR.

It is the American way to aspire to be the best of anything one chooses to be and not what some knucklehead wants them to be by mislabeling them.
It is the freedom of choice at work. Not what others "choose" to be their feeedoms. Or to mislabel others' choices like you did.

Senate for fourth time rejects House anti-Obamacare provisions
http://www.cnn.com/2013/10/01/politics/govern...
Second or third or fourth verse, same as the first.

A stalemate in Congress that caused a government shutdown on Tuesday continued with Senate Democrats voting for a fourth time to reject a spending plan by House Republicans that sought to undermine Obamacare.

You are most certainly welcome...
I just love the way how they would claim, they can agree to disagree and have differing opinions and remain friends and respectful to one another... It proves once again, NO THEY CAN'T!
Jax last night basically gave you an ultimatum as well as giving him and his friends a sense of superiority over you...(LOL, as if)... A few years back, NTR and her friends who support the welfare system, the lazy poor and their own unique personal agendas pulled the same crap with me, when they suggested that I re-think my position and who and what I support... Needless to say, they had no more weight (influence or control) over my beliefs, my principles or my stance on the issues any more than they do with you... Welcome to the trenches as no doubt you are aware you will be labeled a drunk, a sot, a pot smoker, a homophobe, a racist and my personal favorite, a misogynist amongst other defaming labels... LMAO
I agree with you.. Not a single person on topic will be affected by this govt shut down.. The govt is not completely shutting down where it would have any real effects on anyone personally per se.. Those who will be furloughed will get back pay when the govt goes back into operation..
Some may report for work and receive rubber checks (IOU's) and majority banks will cash them. It's good business, afterall they will then be able to charge the govt an interest for covering the IOU's...
Same sh*t happened here when Gov Pete Wilson did not give a cost of living increase, pay raises for "some state" employees for the 8 years he held office.. But the legislature sure did get their increases where the rest of us had to take 3-5 percent cut in pay and work furlough days Anyhow, the banks cashed those IOU's and were paid 3 percent interest when our State govt went back to full operation.
You are absolutely right... No one here is affected other than those liberals who actually believed they could brow beat the republican party.. I just hope, when they do go back into operation, the republicans will remain steadfast with having the dems and obama buy the obamacare and give no exemptions to anyone... I do not think that is going to happen as the republicans don't care about the people anymore than the dems do...
You are also absolutely right.. The house republicans did pass everything the senate wanted to go thru.. It is the senate that believes they are so special and deserve better than obamacare...
The thing is, those fckr's can afford health insurance and funding their own retirement whereas others cannot...
"...Jax last night basically gave you an ultimatum..."

I got this far and gave up.

I don't care what a persons political beliefs are, everyone is entitled to their own opinions, so what I said had nothing to do with any of that.

It's just that after several days of that jerk calling me a f*a*g, attacking other people that have always shown him respect and posting more of his racist crap about anyone that's not white...I decided DP was a lost cause.

You can support his "monkey race" theory if you want, but the man has lost his mind and I don't feel like playing nice about it.

Plain and simple, I can discuss any issue with anyone as long as they can maintain some semblance of reason, but start with the racism, the homophobic slurs and all the rest and we're through talking.

BTW...Don't forget to pat him on the head once in a while, his ego needs it and if he feels neglected he'll turn on you too.

Just curious as to your opinion why it would so dastardly an act to delay the implementation of the ACA for one year since Obama has already delayed (unconstitutionally and illegally) the implementation of the corporate mandate for a year. Also, why is it so bad to require that federal workers from the President on down should also participate in the ACA with no subsidy to help them pay for it. The vast majority of them can afford it all by themselves, except for Debbie Wasserman Schultz who's in hock for over 1million dollars.

Poll: GOP hits a new low
That’s the finding from a new Quinnipiac University poll.
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-poli...
From Post Politics:
Republicans in Congress have hit a new low in the minds of Americans and now face a steep deficit when matched up against congressional Democrats, according to a new poll.
The Quinnipiac University survey shows that Americans disapprove of the job Republicans in Congress are doing by 74 percent to 17 percent. The 17 percent who approve of how Republicans are doing their job is the lowest number on record in Quinnipiac’s polling.
Also bad news for the GOP is how far they’ve fallen behind in the so-called generic congressional ballot — a choice between a generic Democrat and a generic Republican.
When given that choice, voters now favor the Democrat by a nine-point margin, 43 percent to 34 percent. That is also a new low for the GOP in Quinnipiac’s polling.(cont.)

All that proves is that maybe, for now, the lies of Obama and the Dems are working. They're holding a gun to the head of our economy and saying "let us enact another gargantuan free sh*t program, or else".

You are supporting left-wing radicals who are using Saul Alinsky tactics to wreck the country, hoping they can rebuild into the "workers paradise" they've always dreamed of.

Shame on you, you selfish, ungrateful, ignorant person!

The polls also say the ObamaCare is deeply unpopular and that Obama is not trusted, especially after Benghazi, the IRS, the NSA and Syria.

But those polls the Democrats don't want to discuss.

Because it was another Democrat trick, pure and simple. The children in the Democrat-controlled Senate think so little of the public they went home for most of the weekend. They are acting like they own the country, not like they work for us. They are pond scum.
