    Even Hillary abandoned that Titanic months ago.

    For 16 days, no one really noticed any problems with the ACA website, thanks to the shutdown (or slimdown, for Fox vewers).


    Now, the New York Times is saying that the glitches are minor, they’ll be fixed soon, and the US desperately needs affordable healthcare for everyone, and the ACA MUST deliver it, since that’s its name.


    NICHOLAS D. KRISTOF has a moving column about friends who died of treatable cancer because they couldn’t afford treatment.


    Meanwhile, Ted Rall says the quotes he’s seeing for an ACA policy are more than the policy he had to cancel because he couldn’t afford it. Rall, so far, is the only reliable critic I’ve seen, all the others have been discredited as liars by the MSM.


    On ‘Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me’ yesterday morning, one of the panellists said he had coverage from his employer, but he tried the ACA website, got on the first time he tried, and saw that it provided better coverage for less out-of-pocket than his current employer-provided plan, so he sighed up. True? Joke?


    The critics claim death panels, $5,000 penalty, and a deadline of 15 December to sign up, all obviously false to anyone who can read.


    So are the real premiums just as Obama said on 1 Oct, less than $100 a month out-of-pocket for brain tumours? Or still more than most uninsured persons can afford? No one seems to have any believable data.

    Would help if you knew the difference between a premium and a co-pay, but that’s fairly common — most of the “ohmygoditcostsmore” has been from people who have been listening to the 70 or 80 percent of the press who aren’t, in Glenn’s expert analysis “mainstream.” It’s from anecdotes of people who lost their coverage not because of the law but because their insurance companies didn’t want to sell policies that actually covered anything, or because their employers saw it as a chance to screw them out of yet another benefit, and who haven’t bothered to actually look into their choices. But, yes, Glenn, the flood of “ohmygod” coverage has not happened and you’re right. Keep illustrating those lunatic fringe talking points and stay tuned to Fox so you don’t become confused by reality.

    ^Blind partisan rhetoric.
    You’re submitting that the only good element in this context is government. People are too stupid to know the difference between premiums and deductibles, insurance companies just want to screw their customers and employers don’t care about their employees. The only moral agent in our lives that we can trust is the federal government.
    Your stance is blatantly un American. This country was founded on the principle that government must never be trusted, that it is a necessary evil of civilization.
    Your post proves how it divides people, I must hate those that serve me(insurance company that I choose to spend my money on), I must hate my employer for he cares nothing about me other than enslaving me, and I must mistrust myself for I’m too stupid to make these decisions on my own, thus dividing my own self.
    You are harming people with this philosophy in so many ways. You are not compassionate, you are hateful. You don’t care about the less fortunate you enable them to remain so. This philosophy and false sense of moral superiority harms you most if all.
    I’m sorry for you and those that share your hateful beliefs.

    There’s plenty of the Press who’ve had a field day ragging on Obamacare – Megan McArdle at Bloomberg doesn’t let a day go by without a commentary on the screw up.

    Ah, when the dictatorship of the proletariat fails, there is always the state-controlled media to support the movement!

    I wonder why? It is cheap for certain wage earners because our tax dollars support it. It is expensive for middle income workers because they don’t qualify for subsidies.

    You know the Captain of the Titanic in the last minutes just before going down, went back to his cabin and laid down.

    Why yes, she saw how much it was like Hillarycare. She does not want her name with yet another FAILED health care attempt.
