    Number of uninsured has gone up! Those that have a Obamacare tin plated plan, it is worthless! Obama also has this Hey you poor here is a plan plan, In that the only way a person could save 2,500 a year is for a tax payer to supplement the plan. And how many could keep the plan they once had? About as many as Obama signed up for sub par plans that cost more and cover less! You mean that kind of coverage? And where is the doctor we were promised we could keep? GONE!!!!
    So to sum up, Obama might have a number that is higher then when he started. But that in that number the Obama lies about what it is. No you can not keep your doctor, no you can not keep the plan you once had and it will not cost you 2,500 less unless you get another tax payer to pick up the bill.

    I think one of the other commentators might have a point. Calling everyone insured under the ACA ‘uninsured’ so the hockey stick’s blade is pointing in the wrong direction may not necessarily be completely wrong.


    A friend had to sign up for the ACA AFTER he found he had cancer. Being poor, he got a Platinum Plan HMO for $2,500 a month. But the chemo he got did absolutely nothing, since his HMO only used drugs they could acquire at a price that didn’t hurt profits, and those drugs were not the most effective agents for chemo (they said that radiation therapy was not available), The surgery provided by his HMO left him in bad shape, since it was also done as cheaply as possible.


    A single data point does not a good study make, but finding a legitimate study by someone with absolutely no axes to grind is something I haven’t been able to get my search engines to find. So I only have my single data point, which fits with what another comment is saying.

    It would not make the slightest bit of difference just what president Obama does or does not do, Harley and the other ultra conservatives on this site will cry like stepped on bugs! Heck, he could come out for the traditional American Apple Pie and Motherhood, and these guys would then proclaim motherhood to be somehow unconstitutional, and Apple Pie to be a Communist Plot against the America they claim to be so in love with!!


    And, of course, they would never let facts, or even reason and common sense, or even courtesy get in their way!!


    I can easily see why such truly even handed and excellent posters as RT almost never post here anymore!!

    How’s about a shout out to Romney ‘Care’ in Massachusetts, eh? It’s the progenitor of all these ‘problems’ and ‘failures’ and ‘black is the white’ issues with Obama’s insurance program. Mitt must have known something, something special about the DOOM of a politician expanding healthcare coverage. What was, what IS, that something??
    -
    Oh, right, properly administered the program works.

    All I can say is, “Huh?”

    You seem to admit that people who didn’t have insurance before now have insurance. But you say it’s “tin plated”.

    I guess you’re unfamiliar with the super high deductible, low cap plans employers have been dubbing “insurance” for the last couple of decades.

    The reality is that the ACA has barely started to make a dent in solving the problem of preventing health care from gobbling up our GDP. It shouldn’t matter whether your employer or the government pays for your health care. But we were on a trajectory that was utterly unsustainable.

    Oddly enough I’ve not heard this, I’ve heard the ACA is less popular (which would seem to contradict this cartoon). Like Michael, I’d like to see something from someone that doesn’t have an axe to grind.

    You didn’t only drink the kool-aid, you are helping make it. Not only are premiums waaaaaay up but deductibles are in the tens of thousands. If I was on welfare, food stamps, etc. It is a good deal, but not for those of us who work.

    “I was in hospital 2 weeks and surgery I had to pay $15.00 on leaving [note 5.00 was for 2 sunday papers] // I did not get a cap or a hat”

    Consider yourself extremely lucky to have amazing insurance. Your personal experience isn’t really a rebuttal of the facts.

    What are these libs crowing about? The Unaffordable Care Act was supposed to insure 40-50 million people without insurance. The last figure we’ve heard from the administration was that 9 million had signed up, but half of them previously had insurance before the Unaffordable
    Care Act rolled out. And they had no idea how many had paid a premium.

    Then there’s this hot off the presses in the last few days:

    Canada Free Press, Aetna: Actual ObamaCare enrollment turning out way lower than the White House said

    Aetna, Cigna report falling enrollment in ACA plans: If the numbers translate to other insurers, Obama administration predictions could be off 30%

    All this with 40 illegal postponements of provisions in the ACA until after the election. You people are delusional. It’s as if the only news you get are from White House Press Briefings and DNC statements.

    Why shouldn’t he? They don’t have a dog in this fight, if anything since it’s more socialized than our old system if they had any bias, it should be pro ACA, not against.

    @echoraven

    echo, old friend, please read the banner a little more closely.
    “Canada Free Press: Because without America, there is no free world.”


    Do you REALLY think any Canadian publication would start out that way? Do you REALLY think Canada has no free press beyond this drivel?

    “Canada Free Press” is entirely a Right-Wing American production that has expropriated the name “Canada” for either a financial or agenda driven benefit, or to fool Right Wing Americans into thinking that others in the REAL free world share their absurd world views.

    @echoraven

    It has, apparently, fooled both you and Churchy into thinking it is legitimate.
