    I lost my brother Tom to liver disease in 2013, age 62, pre ACA. Over his last two years, I cannot tell you how difficult it was for him to get healthcare, basic, adequate, timely, affordable, reliable healthcare.

    I would not wish Tom’s demise on anybody, but the RepubliCons do.

    Sorry about your brother. I hope that your story makes people stop and realize that the US did not have “the finest healthcare system in the world” as many right wingers have insisted to me. Something had to change. The ACA may not be perfect (I would prefer a single-payer system myself), but the Republicans have offered no plan whatsoever.

    Be sure to see the video that Signe is referring to. It is quite funny as well as effective in getting the word out about healthcare.gov (I apologize that I do not know how to embed the video into my post, though I know it is possible to do)

    It got the word out alright, It got the kids to look at it, but not even the head lady can tell you how many looked at it, signed up, and paided.
    Obamacare is still a failure by their own numbers. 7 million have not signed up, 2.7 are not young and healthy.
    Obama has changed and delayed it 27 times. Why? It is a failure he did not want other Democrats to deal with during elections.
    Then there is Pets2.com the Obama health care addition. That is a failure no matter how many cute animals you have rapping.
    Obama should have stuck with Richard Simmons and giving out free birth control. That line might as well be for a night club that is handing out free condoms.

    @wmconelly

    And Obamacare fixes that how? Your “brother” would be still as dead. Just ask those in NY who no longer have health care as a direct result of Obamacare. And as a kicker, speak out against it and you might get the IRS give you it’s own examination.

    @Endovelicus

    You mean they have a magical cure for what ever ails his brother? While you are at it see if they have those magical green jobs Obama promised Detroit.

    Yes, he set a new standard for boorish behavior and worthless interviews by a President. Future Presidents will have to work very hard to lower the standard further.

    This is the kind of thing that gives conservative PACs heartburn. They spend millions and the President does something like this and has a huge impact with the younger generation. Who says he isn’t smart.

    Obamacare was a failure before it was even passed. I am amazed you still fall for his LIES! Obama is a LIAR! Obamacare is a LIE! Numbers do not lie. More are losing and have lost health care coverage as a direct result of Obama and his mandates. Obama knew this would happen! You can NOT keep it if it does not meet his standards. That is the truth, Obamacare is a LIE! They set the standard of 7 million. Now that lady is saying oh it is a success because millions have signed up. How many was that again? oh millions? as in what 4 million have looked at it? only how many have paid into it? How many? The facts are you NEED 7 million to make the financial obligations, 2.7 paying way to much to get get way to little and be way to young to have the coverage you are asking them to carry. But now that that is a FAILURE move the goal post again. And YOU can not tell me how many signed up, how can you when the head lady can not tell Congress how many.
    FAILURE!

    During the debates Obama said it would cost 800 million. Tell me who said it would cost 2.3 TRILLION? And it is now costing upwards of 3 TRILLION!
    Obamacare is a FAILURE from the start. This strip is just another in a long line of FAILURES. Kids are lining up to see what the fool is selling. But I have put many an Ipad in my cart, only to leave it there or redo it. Let us see how any of those young and hip sign up for it when they realize Obamacare does not get you laid by proving free birth control.

    If Obamacare worked then Obama and his administration wouldn’t continually push back the dates to start portions of it mandated by law. The employer mandate has been pushed back now until Obama is out of office. He knows full well that its implementation will be a disaster many times the magnitude of the individual mandate.
    It isn’t the crappy website that is the fundamental problem with this law, it is the law itself. It was badly written, includes numerous high cost provisions (like the pre-existing condition mandate, or the one-size-fits-all style of coverage), job killing items (like the 30 hour number on what workers have to be covered), and economic disincentives like taxes on medical devices.
    .
    It is a bad law written by idiots and fosited on the American people by morons.

    The GOP loves its failed solutions. More tax cuts! More show votes to repeal health care! More grandstanding!

    The GOP itself is a failed solution, as its core gets more ancient, more senile, and more dead.

    I expect the Kochs have contingency plans and are investing in Democratic politicians to cover their bets for the long run. Lucky us.

    @Kip W

    The GOP loves its failed solutions"
    If that was true they would support the biggest failure Obamacare.. or as you call it ACA. "
    I expect the Kochs"
    oh no an evil rich guy, run away run away, they have no clue, they evil rich guy, why Obamacare is failing because Obama failed to take as much as he could from them and give to those pre existing conditions of stupidity….
