It's sad to see where this conversation has progressed. The AFA is a good idea if it had been developed in a bi-partisan effort and thought out to implementation. The democrats where like kids in a candy store when they voted on this. We have to vote on this bill to see what's in it. Are you kidding me. We all need to be patient, I just hope I live long enough to realize Obamanation's legacy.

Another example of Stupid coming from PJ14.. I can walk into the hospital ER tonight and get treatment.. I won't need Obama or the likes of you to hold my hand..

Your so misinfomred.. Like all liberal fools..

ER is open to anyone Has been for many years and Obamacare will not close it down..

But like all dumbcoff liberals your so think between the ears you will never ever catch on to what is law and what is STILL law!!!!

How Fubareed is this adminstration??

The White House has repeatedly maintained that ObamaCare expands options, a mantra that White House Press Secretary Jay Carney repeated on Friday. "They'll have choices they didn't have in the past, including a range of options when it comes to levels of coverage," he said.

But those options don't apply to the millions who will be directed to Medicaid, many of them hardly impoverished.

"The system will automatically sign them up for Medicaid, even if they don't want to be on Medicaid.

How can any of you lefty liberal support the incompetence of Obama????

I bet if I met any of you on the street you would look like death warmed over.. How can you follow a blatent liar.. A stupid fool.. Reminds me of Jimmy Jones and you guys are willing to follow the lying cheat ..

Yes here is what the brilliant guy built.. Shows he is oine dumb stupid idiot..This is the bill he signed.. he doesnt know his toot from his mouth..

An enrollee

The father owns a $5 million house - entirely paid for. His kids attend expensive private schools. He owns three cars, but because he has earned his fortune and has stopped working , and his wife's new start-up business has yet to produce an income stream, he is considered by the Healthcare.gov website to have no income.

The website put him on Medicaid.

There is the prime example of why this guy should never have been elected.. Put a dunce cap on him and put in in the cloths closet.. hes too dumb to be in the room...

I hear those "terrible nasty" insurance companies should have sent out "upgrades to your policy" instead of cancellation letter. Oh poor Burrock Insane Oblamer crying to his sycophants yesterday at a closed meeting. All he does anymore is lying and crying

Had a old friend from years ago swing by today.. Asked him if he signed up for Obamacare.. he said are you kidding? He voted for Obama but he says this is highway robbery..

Hummm had to laugh at how he got stabbed in the back by the guy he voted for..

Hes shipping out for overseas to take a job teaching in a foreign land..

Says the US Gov will have to find him to fine him..

How many more folks who voted for Obama now feel the same way??

Obama came to play football but he doesnt have enough padding in the whole world to protect his backside now..

Shoulda learned the game before he stepped onto the field..

It seems strong language, from those who disagree with the left, doesn't suit the left.

Go figure

the word fascist is intended to mean "oppressive", "intolerant", "chauvinist", "genocidal", "dictatorial", "racist", or "aggressive

So tell me Garr which one of these definitions doesnt describe Obama???

Harry Reid invoked the nuclear option today.

I want all libs to mark this on their calander and remeber it from this day forth.. Because once they have made it law it is available to the Repubicans too.

Obama is cheering from the peanut section.. He thinks this will make Obamacare a back pade item..when ijn fact it will make Obama and the Democrats even less trusted in 2014.

Hate to wish my life away but I would be happy if tomorrow was 2014 election

Supposedly those who disagree with PJinfinity politically had "free stuff" coming to them and are now encouraged to pay their "own stinking bills."

How about those who self-insured, which meant paying their own stinking bills? Obamacare FORCES them to buy something they chose not to buy before. So much for PJ's free stuff...

Presumably, the more who buy into the exchanges will make the prices go down. Unfortunately, the prices ARE higher right now - they can be documented with anecdotal evidence as well as industry projections - and many are not thrilled about buying now.

Looks like all Americans will no longer be getting free stuff and all will be paying their own (higher) stinking bills. Nobody will be exempt from this law's long arm.

Congrats on a one-size-fits-all post, PJinfinity, though it might not have been what was intended...

Jack You must remember NoT says he doesnt support Obamacare.. Hes in favor of the Government paying his hospital bills..

he also is in favor of the Government (farm bill) buying his food..

He IS NOT in favor of being responsible for his own being here on earth..

The fact he was shoved onto this awful place by his mother and has to find a way to feed and cloth himself is downright "wrong".

Its his mothers fault he is on this earth but he chooses to BLAME it all on the Republicans..

When you are a failure in life BLAME the Republicans..

Its Obamas Battle Cry ..ITs the Republicans fault.

Everytime I see him whining and crying on TV it makes me vomit!!

EMTALA, enacted by the federal government in 1986, requires that hospital emergency departments treat emergency conditions of all patients regardless of their ability to pay and is considered a critical element in the "safety net" for the uninsured, but established no direct payment mechanism for such care. Indirect payments and reimbursements through federal and state government programs have never fully compensated public and private hospitals for the full cost of care mandated by EMTALA. More than half of all emergency care in the U.S. now goes uncompensated. According to some analyses, EMTALA is an unfunded mandate that has contributed to financial pressures on hospitals in the last 20 years, causing them to consolidate and close facilities, and contributing to emergency room overcrowding. According to the Institute of Medicine, between 1993 and 2003, emergency room visits in the U.S. grew by 26%, while in the same period, the number of emergency departments declined by

Problem with selling Obamacare is that it's not free. People on the take, need to take, not pay to take. Government is far too big to function. Government is great at taking problems and making more problems for them to justify throwing money at the original problem and the problems created by trying to fix the original problem.

If we learn one thing from this debacle I hope it's that we need to include a new requirement to become president. In order to be president you have to have managed at least a lemonade stand sometime in your life.
