    It’s hilarious that this trainwreck has already crashed before the engine has even started.
    Wait until this garbage actually kicks in next year.

    About 95% of Americans will be totally unaffected by the ACA, so they’ll just read about what the ACA is doing to the 5%.


    Obamabots will believe what the Obamabot media tell them; Tea types will believe Fox. Neither will have any idea what the truth is, nor will they care.


    Obama’s cunning plan is that more will believe the Obamabot media than will believe the Fox-type media, because of the shutdown, the ‘$5,000 penalty for everyone who hasn’t signed up by December 15, and then Death Panels for everyone who has a job and gets sick (but free stuff for everyone who is on AFDC).’ Since the overwhelming majority know those are bald-faced lies, it’s easy to disbelieve the Tea-media in the unlikely event that they ever tell the truth. So Obama is betting the majority of voters will believe the Obamabot media (affordable healthcare for all, paid for by forcing deadbeats who didn’t have insurance and who got full treatment for free at our expense to pay their fair share) and vote accordingly in ’14 and ’16.

    Obama did not lie, he says it like it should be and becuase it should be he makes it so, so he could not have lied about it. And if that does not work you re define the problem so that your solution is the only right solution. So you see before an election it is al right to tell everyone it will only effect 15% of you not the 85% you say will keep it Period, You will keep your Doctor period, You will keep your payments period,
    And now that the site is back up and running know one should talk about how it costed about a billion in running, fixing, down time, up time, nope. Talk about the security holes, nope. Obama has declared that it is working therefore it shall be! No worries that he said 7 million need to sign up noooo 2.7 need to be young and healthy nooo. Obama now says that it is working and it is a success.

    5% of 300,000,000 is 15,000,000 people. So, saying that it is “only 5%” still makes it a lot of people. Also, it will end up being all of us.

    Liberals always try to make things better for a few by ruining things for all of us.

    “About 95% of Americans will be totally unaffected by the ACA, so they’ll just read about what the ACA is doing to the 5%”. -——————————————————
    Do you think just repeating that lie will make it true or do you just like misinforming people?
    25 million people received cancelation notices in the mail. I’d say that affects them.
    Another 150 million would’ve had their policies cancelled if parts Obamacare wasn’t delayed.
    10’s of millions of people have seen their health insurance premium go up 50-100% WITH an even higher out-of-pocket deductible.
    Those that either can’t afford the higher rates or simply don’t want health insurance will see an ever-increasing portion of their tax return confiscated by Obamacare.

    Ask all these people if they’ve been “affected” by Obamacare!

    25 million is about 7%, which isn’t THAT inconsistent with ‘about 5%’. For now, Medicare recipients are not affected. Those with employer insurance are mostly not affected.


    AFTER the ’16 election, the heavy ACA tax on employer insurance starts, but I only went as far as ’16.


    And if the cunning plan works, Billary will veto any attempt to repeal the ACA.

    The reverenced Wright proved he was a bigot and Obama gave a speech,
    says green company is great and fails a year later and Obama gives a speech,
    pulls out of Iraq with no clear victory over insurgent forces, and Obama gives a speech,
    the interface failed and Obama gave a speech,
    the back office failed and Obama gave a speech
    the security failed and Obama gave a speech.
    It is clear President Obama talks to much.

    You’re being a bit disingenuous there, MICHAEL. You must remember that about 6 months ago, the buzz was all about small businesses laying off employees to get below the 50 employee mandate, how hours were being cut, how 75% of new job creation was part time, and how employers were dropping coverage for their employees. This went on for months, and affected millions of people (beyond the current 5% of policies that you’re discussing). Obama’s response was to postpone this portion of his mandate until after the election in 2014 and -Poof! – the stories went away.

    Now there are stories that Obama has internal memos that 80 to 85 million policies (and BTW, these are policies, not people. On most policies, more than a single person is covered) would be cancelled by businesses with more than 50 employees before the 2014 election, so Obama cancelled another part of the employer mandate until after the election. We’re not talking about 5% here, MICHAEL. (Oh, BTW, Obama’s worrying about the 2014 election, not 2016.)

    @ReasonsVentriloquist

    My mistake. Reports that say that the current loss of coverage of 5 million people is inaccurate, in that it is 5 million policies. As there are more than a single person on a policy, it is an underestimate..

    OTOH my post claiming 85 million cancelled policies is wrong, in that it is 85 million people. This is from the Federal Register.
    Sorry for the confusion.

    Section 1251 of the Affordable Care Act contains what’s called a “grandfather” provision that, in theory, allows people to keep their existing plans if they like them. But subsequent regulations from the Obama administration interpreted that provision so narrowly as to prevent most plans from gaining this protection.

    “The Departments’ mid-range estimate is that 66 percent of small employer plans and 45 percent of large employer plans will relinquish their grandfather status by the end of 2013,” wrote the administration on page 34,552 of the Register. All in all, more than half of employer-sponsored plans will lose their “grandfather status” and become illegal. According to the Congressional Budget Office, 156 million Americans—more than half the population—was covered by employer-sponsored insurance in 2013.

    Another 25 million people, according to the CBO, have “nongroup and other” forms of insurance; that is to say, they participate in the market for individually-purchased insurance. In this market, the administration projected that “40 to 67 percent” of individually-purchased plans would lose their Obamacare-sanctioned “grandfather status” and become illegal, solely due to the fact that there is a high turnover of participants and insurance arrangements in this market. (Plans purchased after March 23, 2010 do not benefit from the “grandfather” clause.) The real turnover rate would be higher, because plans can lose their grandfather status for a number of other reasons.

    How many people are exposed to these problems? 60 percent of Americans have private-sector health insurance—precisely the number that Jay Carney dismissed. As to the number of people facing cancellations, 51 percent of the employer-based market plus 53.5 percent of the non-group market (the middle of the administration’s range) amounts to 93 million Americans.

    The rest of my post stands as is.

    It’s called “personal responsibility”. I remember when republicans used to believe in that. When the Heritage Foundation and rmoney believed in that. Now you’re socialists – “Let someone else pay for my healthcare.”
