    Yep, we’re living in an extra-constitutional America now.

    I usually skip this silly ACA strips anymore, kinda like arguing about climate change.
    It was fun for awhile but now we have passed the point in science where the information level has replaced opinion with facts.

    On to the next important question, will Ima tie Hillary to this toon?

    “That’s right, the White House said that it surpassed its goal for people enrolled in ObamaCare. It’s amazing what you can achieve when you make something mandatory and fine people if they don’t do it and then keep extending the deadline for months. It’s like a Cinderella story. It’s just a beautiful thing. You make everyone do it. Isn’t it great how many people do it? But if you still haven’t enrolled, you might have to pay a penalty called the individual shared responsibility payment, which is 1% of your salary. Then Americans said, “Man, good thing I don’t have a job.”

    The woman in the cartoon claims the ACA forced her insurance company to cancel the plan she liked. My understanding is the ACA exempted existing policies from the new guidelines. If the ACA didn’t apply to her preexisting policy, how did it force said policy to be canceled.?

    Any policy that got cancelled under the ACA was junk insurance.

    Before the ACA I couldn’t afford insurance. Now I have a bronze plan for $5.98 a month (that’s right, 19 cents a day), and my insurer has sent me a test for colon cancer.

    Viva Obamacare!

    Methinks the last manifestation (“If my words”) has been banned. We’ll have to wait and watch for his next attempt.

    As for the ACA, the Republicans and their shills will only get more vicious by inverse proportion to the ACA’s success.

    There were certain low-premium policies that didn’t cover anything and have been outlawed by the ACA, including some that only covered office visits so that the holders thought they had a good policy until they actually needed it for something expensive. Some of those were still grandfathered in — which is funny because the insurance lobby shills whine over extended deadlines, but they don’t whine over allowing the companies to rip people off for another year.

    But most of the cancellations are the same cancellations that happen every year as companies make adjustments. It’s just that, in other years, people cursed the insurance company or their employer, not the Marxist from Kenya who is obviously to blame for everything.

    Was reading an article on how cash strapped states are enrolling their prison population on the medicaid expansion due to a ACA loop hole.

    Get over it, dude. Seven million people have health insurance who did not have it before the ACA. For every complaint there are 100,000 thankful people. This snowball is taking us into the ranks of the civilized world. Thank you, Obama and Romney.

    @DGF999

    Wow, that’s some ignorance! The Preamble says that one of the purposes of the Constitution is to “promote the general Welfare.” Article I, Section 8 specifically grants the Congress the “Power” to provide for the “general Welfare” of the United States. Sounds constitutional to me! This is nothing more than the people pooling their resources to promote the general welfare, just as they pool their resources to build highways, defend the country, &c.

    As of mid-March — that is, BEFORE the final enrollment surge — the Affordable Care Act had already produced a net gain of 9.3 million insured adults. Hello? Potato Famine Kelley? Reality is on the line.
