    Of course not, for they spewed forth from the lying Obamanation. The truth is not in that creature.

    “My healthcare plan will save the average American family $2500 a year on their health insurance premiums”.
    LOL…….Just a complete lie to sucker in the low-info crowd.
    I guess it worked.

    You obviously don’t read Prof. Krugman’s columns. The ACA is a complete success. No one’s insurance was cancelled, but people with fraudulent plans that would have cheated them got legitimate plans for less than they were paying. All those who said their premiums increased have been proven to be liars, everyone had their premiums, deductibles, and co-pays reduced.


    And who can doubt Prof Krugman, a professor at one of the nation’s top universities and a Nobel Laureate?


    The fact that large numbers of liars have contradicted Prof Krugman just shows that the US is a nation of liars. Prof Krugman always tells the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, that’s how he got the Nobel Prize.


    (And Prof Simon got it when he proved that, by 1960, computers would have made human chess, human language translation, and human problem solving obsolete, all of which happened just as Prof Simon predicted. The Nobel committee never gives prizes except to those who deserve them. I could also give an example of a Peace Prize they gave, but it would just be repetitive, so I won’t.)

    Astonishing how a program that addresses the virtual genocide of 44,000 dying annually and 100,000 or so having to declare medical bankruptcy annually because they could not afford health insurance is attacked by so many. Why do so many accept so much death and human suffering as the best option? Is it the power of negative advertising? Is it ideology gone awry? Is it the lemming syndrome? Are there that many really, really stupid people in America?

    Nice little bit of satire! You should submit it to Saturday Night Live as a skit,

    Obamacare problems are completely fabricated. It’s worked perfectly, and I dare you to prove otherwise.

    Cost of copay for arthritis medication – doubled.

    Chiropractic maintenance coverage to manage the problem – canceled.

    Knee replacement is the only other option – $45,000 cost totally covered by medicare and supplemental.

    Only the government would think this is effective cost containment.

    This conservative opposes the ACA because it’s a HUGE unconstitutional government overreach. When the feds can run the government efficiently then maybe I’ll listen when they say they can improve the medical/insurance industry. Not to mention that the law as written is so complex that it’s unworkable. Then there’s the ugly fact that a program that was supposed to cut costs and provide coverage for those previously uninsured is actually doing the polar opposite. Want more reasons?

    Conservative-GOP-Republicans are not trying to overturn the ACA, they are trying to overturn Democrats and Moderates in the next election.

    Furthermore, why are more Republicans embracing ACA:

    And conservatives dropping their plans to repeal it: http://talkingpointsmemo.com/dc/gop-disappearing-promise-to-replace-obamacare

    “If you like your plan you can keep your plan.”

    Well I couldn’t and neither did anyone else where I work.First the premium went up from $120 to $420 a month.Then It got cancelled altogether.

    You on the other hand pay nothing and paid nothing before.So you got to keep yours. Except medicare got some significant cuts But the LWNJ news nerds don’t report that because it doesn’t further their story line “Obamacare is good.”

    “We have to pass it to find out whats in it.”

    Now anyone who is staying at a job they don’t like only to keep their health insurance can quit and still have insurance paid for by someone else that hates their job while the one who quit can go be an artist or some other drivel.

    The more we find out the more it seems that this was passed to buy votes from the no working ,lazy, worthless,and unemployable morons.Most folks that have signed up for Obamacare won’t be paying a dime.Someone that hates their job will be paying for them.

    “But, why do the conservatives hate the ACA law so much?”
    -
    let me count the ways——-
    1.Most Americans had healthcare insurance. The few who did not (including the young and healthy who CHOSE to go without insurance) could have been given government-paid insurance; person by person, without using the few uninsured of our 318 million population as the EXCUSE to seize control of healthcare insurance, healthcare providers, and dictate to patients, doctors, hospitals and pharmacy and equipment suppliers. Big Brother Multiplied. And totally un-necessary.
    2.Hello, 1984. PC-speak. PC-practice medicine (private doctors have taken shelter as employees of larger institutions); PC-government choosing who lives and who dies by rationing healthcare made more expensive by government control.
    3.Americans who are conservative and/or older (I am past age 80 and paid private insurance since age 16) do not want to be dependent on government. We know we lose our independence when Big Brother is in charge.

    My aunt has diabetes and for several years it kept her unemployed because it added significantly to the employer’s insurance to hire her. With Obamacare, she had her own plan and, as of March 1st— she has a job. My niece is in college and will be covered by her parent’s plan until she is 26— because of Obamacare. My brother was staying at a job he didn’t need except for the insurance that covered his wife who had chronic respiratory problems— now he’s retired and has insurance through Obamacare. I don’t know anyone who has lost a job because of Obamacare, unless you count my brother, and his job is now filled by a lady who did need it, so that’s actually a net gain too.

    The political pros in the Republican party fear and hate it because people will discover that they will like it. So they are trotting out disinformation and spew to desperately try to stop the tide of (oh, my God ) … Progress.

    Yeah right Before ACA.
    $434 for wife and myself, for a $5000/7500/50 plan.
    After:
    $1054 For a 5000/6000/50 plan.
    Which I have take because they made the plan I had “illegal”.

    Difference in plans?
    Same Insurer, and doctors and such, with Kaiser.
    My wife which is 55 can now has birth control and pregnancy coverage. (Hint she needs neither).
    The max for a year we will pay goes down for each of use is $6000 from $7500.
    For that we pay and extra $7440 a year.
    Not to mention since we are both health we have never spent more than $1000 or so more than our monthly payment.

    You in fact have no clue. The only people that are making out on this are the people that gets supplements from the government, and those come from tax payers or are borrowed.

    And as for your stupid Nobel prize, they are a bunch of political yes men, which try to influence the thinking of the world to their way.

    They gave Obama a prize for literally “What he might do in the future”. And BUZZ he didn’t even do those things they thought he would.
