Remember law's other problems

November 12, 2013

In a way, the train wreck that is the Obamacare website has been a godsend to the White House. It has distracted attention away from the national health care law’s many other flaws....

"loco, banghazi a non story? no way you kept a straight face when you typed that"

Honestly, chad, I c/p'd the little gem about benghazi, first posted courtesy of Legend who believes it's a non-story and that only Fox viewers believe it.

Yes, I did type that with a straight face...

it appears this "progressive" experiment is really starting to die off now. It takes far more money than this country has to sustain this progressive movement. looks like it's finally coming home to roost. And talk about giving the tea party a booster shot lol

"Obama let us down no doubt. on the bright side it got fox off the bengazi non-story."

Another partisan post...

Back to the dictionary, NT4M...

partisan, noun

"A fervent, sometimes militant supporter or proponent of a party, cause, faction, person, or idea."

You've been posting much in the line of causes, persons and ideas, haven't you?

That makes you a partisan.

Come together means have coffee with us for three times what it is worth. a cup of $3 joe every day costs more than many of the plans on the exchanges. You can pay $28 or $68 for paint with the same rating in Consumer Reports . If the masses buy the lower cost higher performance plans--the cost of medical care will go down. The ACA is all about making it affordable for everyone by exposing overpriced plans.

Our health insurance coverage and price changes every year. Why were policies cancelled rather than changed? Remember the large price increase a few years ago (b4 the ACA) from BC/BS? Remember their planned trips to luxury vacation spots? Obama let us down no doubt. on the bright side it got fox off the bengazi non-story. The court of public opinion does not hold ins. companies in high regard. The same court does favor those (Obama) who take the hits to correct flaws in our industries. in the end far more people are helped than hurt by the ACA--and this is a democracy not fascism.

"So that should give you a hint as to just how much I loath and despise the GOP."

Boy, it takes guts to say something like this and then deny being a partisan.

You see Obama is no one without his Democrats backing him.. They have figured it out tho.. Obamacare was a Fad that died off rather quickly.. they are ditching obama now and trying to save their own hides..

The Dems talked a big story as they marched behind Obama.. he lied they lied and now they all got caught..

Gonna be like shooting fish in a barrel next election..

Especially when all this stuff hits the fan again next summer with Small business, Big business and those who will get their policy cancelled again if they are able to get one in place now..

The president set it right?

How?

He dumped it back on the insurance companies..

As usual the ywllowbelly crawled out from under his rock and then slithered back under it today..

He did nothing.. Just stood and told more lies..

Guess tomorrow we will see if the Dems believed him.. If they think he solved the problem then they won't vote on the bill to reinstate insurance. If they vote yes on the bill then that tells Obama they don't trust him.

He can't put the jennie back in the bottle no more then he can put a baby back in the womb..

He wrote it, he signed it and now he owns it..

Harshness has found equal time:

NT4M's "right wing vermin" and "caver-in-chief"

Just one big bundle of joy, that one...

NT4M, if Obamacare was sooo fabulous, you'd have been first in line to promote it. We know you prefer single-payer, but nobody is promoting that yet, not so soon after this debacle.

Y'know, I'm surprised your support for the president seems to have been compromised by what you called his "caving" on the law of the land. Aren't you a true believer?

Calling Pres. Obama the "caver-in-chief" is a bit harsh, even if you seem to prefer Democrats over Republicans--the party of Satan, I think you said.

According to The National Report another thus far unpublicized mandate, buried deep inside the law’s more than 2,000 pages, is a provision that gun ownership along with the ‘zealous’ support of the Second Amendment, be classified as mental illnesses, suggesting that only non gun owners would be emotionally and psychologically qualified to possess firearms. Calls from The National Report to the NRA have yet to be returned.

The "new" talking point from "progressives" you people are stupid for buying "substandard" health insurance. So today oblamer unilaterally changes the health care law once again to try to stem the stampede of democrats away from him and his "healthcare" law. So entertaining watching "progressives" and their sycophants trying to spin this disaster while denying what videotapes show them saying repeatedly for the last 3 years. Substance of oblamer "fix" today, "It's not my fault those terrible insurance companies compiled with my law and cancelled those policies."

The big "takers" in our society are the folks who sell the high priced cup of coffee and the low performance health ins. plans. There is much money to be made on coffee at the Mac D's low price--it is good coffee and i question the reason for ever paying more. my money came too hard to support high prices.

Another favored rant by the right is the increase in food stamp recipients. Todays news in ND is how much our food stamp numbers are down. This is how jobs impact fed spending. we need a jobs bill to help correct the Bush 2 trainwreck. there would be fewer on food stamps,welfare and unemployment. there would be more tax revenue coming in to the fed. we Need the ACA because people who go bankrupt from healthcare costs may become food stamp recipients or welfare cases. reports are coming in from ND people who bought lower cost, higher coverage health ins. on the Fed exchanges.

my dear friend loco....I am just trying to further the Starbucks campaign of "Come Together".....I just would feel bad if they ceased that campaign.

And no...I am not 'scary'...that is a term we Democrat Party people use to refer to Republicans and their agendas....even if they're not....I hope this did not sound 'scary'...

No Tea 4 me. My son just figured out the Obama Plan. He doesn't know if he can keep his insurance or not. For his wife and his Child. That is what Obama put on top of buying their homes and every other bill. Guess what, my care is Grandfathered in. I will pay for his heathcare, minus Obama care. Until these United States can be truthful. You are a taker.

Whenever we refer to President Obama, it must be in glowing terms only.

Like warm sunshine...

Like soft, gentle rain...

Like cotton candy...

Like transforming America...
