    The elephants are having a psychotic breakdown now and are even calling each other crazy.

    Good interpretation of the “interpreter” indeed. But while the guy in South Africa claims to be diagnosed as crazy, maybe even treatable with medications, the elephants and the people buying their line, like dittoheads, are just well, nuts.

    I think that is sign language for “Our health insurance and pharmaceutical company stock investments could take a serious hit.” I am guessing the Pachyderm is recommending the Death Panel Option.

    As I understood the articles, it wasn’t just that the signer claimed to be diagnosed as crazy, medical experts also said he was mad as a hatter.

    I hope you haven’t shorted any health insurance or pharmaceutical stocks. But I guess not, or you wouldn’t be able to afford your Internet bills.

    Obamacare is already resulting in improved health outcomes. It will be interesting to see when the GOP starts complaining that Obama isn’t doing enough negotiating with Iran and calling for immigration reform to distract from Obamacare’s successes.

    Maybe it’s because the republicans and people like you are determined, with your lies, to make it fail instead of trying to help implement it.

    @Debt Free “If it’s such a ‘great program’ why aren’t people flocking to sign up?”
    If it is such a failure as a program why are people paying good money on commercials to prevent people from signing up? I live in NC where an anti healthcare commercial comes on at least twice an hour.

    Why has the GOP made fake websites to keep people from getting through? Why are they so anxious to shoot it now instead of waiting for it to fail on its own? Why aren’t they helping to make it a success, like the Dems did with Part D? Why is scoring political points more important to them than all those lives?

    Actually, that interpetation is 100% correct.

    ‘Obamacare is making sure you can’t keep the doctor you like who has been keeping you alive, and you can no longer afford the medicine that has been keeping you alive. How is this an improvement?’
    If you are on Medicare (and you are), you will have no substantive changes to your health insurance.

    Harley, Respectful Troll asked you, very respectfully, what you were for, as an alternative to Obamacare.
    You seem to have no response. If that’s the case, I think you should admit as much.

    Hmmm, maybe the elephant is really using sign language to lay out the Republican alternative health care plan.

    Over a million have signed up. So maybe you are the hallucinating one or you are ignoring news in favor of think tank propaganda.

    About a month ago, the Obama administration released its enrollment totals for the Affordable Care Act, offering data that covered just the first month of the open-enrollment period. Given the systemic problems with, the figures were expected to fall far short of projections, and they did – 106,185 consumers signed up for health insurance through an exchange in October, and only about a quarter of that total signed up by way of the federal marketplace.

    The totals were vastly improved in November. Sarah Kliff reports this morning:

    Just about 1.2 million people have gained health coverage through Obamacare, according to new federal data released Wednesday morning.Approximately 365,000 of those people have purchased private insurance and 803,000 have been determined to be eligible for the public Medicaid program. These numbers count data from both October and November, and show an especially quick growth in enrollment…. Enrollment through the federal exchange grew from about 27,000 people in October to 137,000 through the end of November. […]In the 14 states running their own exchanges, sign-ups went from 79,000 in the first month up to 227,000 for the two months together.
