The plan is to ask the GOP what they want done, then do it and watch the GOP turn on itself again.

Oh, crap, here we go.... the first Band-Aid for their boo-boo. Then a crutch for the messes the Band-aids cause, then a splint for the messes the crutches cause, then Ver 4.2, which also fails, followed by more ad hoc, ersatz, on-the-fly repairs, fixes, revisions, rewrites and restarts.

In other words, a typical government program. Except that it affects almost 1/6th or our economy and screws up our health care system too.

This, folks, is what you get when you elect a clueless "community organizer" who has never had a real job in his entire life.

55,000 people have signed up in Washington State.

So, what's the big deal?

If the state of Washington can do it, why can't
the others?

The GOP had noting to do with OBAMACARE. The GOP want to negotiate with Obama on extending the effective date for the people like he did for the business but Obama SHUT DOWN THE GOVERNMENT and now he is has a program that does not work and he LIED TO THE PEOPLE OVER AND OVER AGAIN ON "IF YOU HAVE INSURANCE YOU CAN KEEP IT". Biggest LIAR the United States ever had as a president. All the countries are laughing at him.

Is this the part where our insurance costs go down $2500 or is this where we find out how we can keep our current policy if we want? Exciting times.

When Bush was President he got all the information he could get and had numerous meetings with both the DEMS and GOP - he got blamed because he got bad information on WMD, Obama states he has NO knowledge or any problems/information (IRS, NSA, BENGHAZI, FAST AND FURIOUS, OBAMACARE and the list goes on) that pertains to the functions of the government so he can state nothing can be his fault including his OBAMACARE that of which he LIED TO THE POEPLE OVER AND OVER and it has been proven he did know about it. He was brief on the problem but ignored it.

Hillary has promised to fix it. Bill will personally attend to the details, and Chelsea will help out where she can. Then in 2024 Chelsea will be ready to run, and the fiefdom will be complete.

but if you remember correctly, which i do, bush stated very clearly he had "proof" of WMDs in iraq. he did not.

he didn't say he had good intel, he said he had proof. that would mean he knows exactly where they were. he did not.

that was an open and bald faced lie.

seems you only see what you want to see.

perhaps you should go back to trying to figure out how they kept the world from knowing there were survivors of the Benghazi attack for months and months! sheesh, what a tool!

the plans that would have been grandfathered through were clearly noted.

if your insurance company decides to cancel those plans, as they have been doing in the past for years and years, that is your issue with you private insurer.

So if I like my insurance plan but obamcare doesn't, I can't keep it. I suppose my rates won't go down either. Sounds like the old bait & switch.

When President Obama said, and I quote:

“If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what.”

I'm guessing Obama didn't understand it either. Evidently he had to sign it to know what's in it.

he should have put the qualifier on it that "if the insurance company you use agrees to that.

it is the insurance companies dropping people's old plans for new ones. even plans that were grandfathered through. again, your beef is with your private insurer, not the ACA.

again, this was all clearly laid out. most citizens that care enough to know about their country knew this, why don't you?
