‘Non-partisan’ group paid $1 million to produce positive Obamacare stories


With the roll out of Obamacare being as disastrous as possible for the Obama administration, one group was given a $1 million grant to help lead a rebranding effort with hopes of salvaging the law in the eyes of the American people.

Families USA (FUSA) — an organization that describes itself as a “national nonprofit, non-partisan organization dedicated to the achievement of high-quality, affordable health care for all Americans” — was given a $1.1 million grant by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation on October 4, 2013, to gather “success stories” of Americans dealing with Obamacare and distribute them to the media who often refer to them as an “independent” group. This is part of a greater upcoming effort to bolster the perception of the lowly health care law.

“The purpose is to bridge the information gap for people who can significantly benefit from the Affordable Care Act,” Ron Pollack, the Co-founder and Executive Director of Families USA, told TIME on October 25, 2013.

However, the organization is a far cry from “non-partisan” and is extremely close to the Obama Administration and Enroll America – the group leading the efforts to sign people up for Obamacare.

Philippe Villers, the president of Families USA,  serves as the Secretary and Treasurer of Board of a little-known group called the Herndon Alliance. The Herndon Alliance originated in Herndon, VA in 2005 and produced research the left used to sell the overhaul of the United States health care system and counteract opposition as the president was making a push for Obamacare.  As Lachlan Markay of the Washington Free Beacon noted, they are credited with crafting President Obama’s, “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it” message, and are even backed with money from George Soros’ Open Society Institute.

In 2009 Politico wrote, “When President Barack Obama says Americans can maintain their ‘choice’ of doctors and insurance plans, he is using a Herndon strategy for wringing fear out of a system overhaul.” They were also described as, “the most influential group in the health arena that the public has never heard of.”

Ron Pollack, the above mentioned co-founder and Executive Director of Families USA,  told the Washington Post in a 2010 interview after the passage of Obamacare that he was going to help found a group called Enroll America in order to raise millions of dollars to assist with enrollment.

“We’re actually helping to found a new organization to work on this. Its placeholder name is Enroll America, and it will involve all the different interest groups, from supporters of reform like consumers groups to community health centers and doctors and insurers,” Pollack told Ezra Klein during an interview. He continued, “And what we’ll do is raise tens of millions of dollars for state groups to work with the state to try to create the most effective systems to apply and enroll. You should be able to enroll with simple application forms at a doctor’s office or a pharmacy. You shouldn’t have to take the day off of work. That sort of thing.”

Pollack currently sits on the board of directors of Enroll America.

In fact, the grants given by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation show Families USA and Enroll America are in the exact same office building, in the exact same suite.

Anne Filipic, the person listed on the grant for Enroll America, formerly served as Deputy Director of the White House Office of Public Engagement. Before this, she was the Deputy Director of Intergovernmental Affairs for Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

As for the foundation that awarded the grants to Families USA and Enroll America — The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation– they are the largest philanthropy group in the United States devoted to health and health care. They, too, have close ties to the Obama Administration.

Their current president and CEO, Risa Lavizzo-Mourey, sits on President Obama’s Council on Fitness, Sports, and Nutrition.

Nancy-Ann DeParle, who sits on the Board of Trustees of the foundation, served as Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy in the Obama Administration from January 2011 until January 2013. Before this, she served as the president’s Health Care Czar and led the administrations effort to pass Obamacare. She is referred to as the administrations “point guard” for overhauling the American health care system.

This isn’t the first time the “non-partisan” Families USA will help the Obama administration rebuild the image of the law.

Every year, FUSA puts on the Health Care Action (HCA) conference. During the 15th HCA conference in January 2010 before the law passed, White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett told those in attendance that the fight for new legislation was not nearly over. “You have been out there in the trenches working with us every single day. On behalf of President Obama, I want to have the pleasure of thanking you. […] I want to reassure you he has not given up on this.”

Later that year,  FUSA partnered with the Obama administration with the goal of rebuilding the image of the unpopular health care bill.

Anita Dunn, former communications director for the administration, and Andrew Grossman, a top Democratic strategist who coordinated grassroots efforts in 2009 for health care reform, came up with a plan that would last until 2014 consisting of “road shows” with the intent of being “media-centric.”

“Those events are intended to be media-centric,” Pollack said of the nationwide public relations plan. “We devote a lot of time before and after to meet with editorial boards, to do radio and TV interviews and sit down with local reporters.”

In 2011, after the annual HCA conference convened, FUSA put together a document titled, “Messaging Cheat Sheet: Mastering the 30-Second Sound Byte.” The document contained ways to answer difficult questions being asked from reporters or the public.

1stcheatsheet

“At the Families USA Health Action 2011 Conference in January, we convened a plenary session that presented the findings of focus group and polling research about how to talk about the Affordable Care Act with the public. As part of this plenary, we asked the audience of state advocates from across the country to submit examples of questions that they have been asked by the public or reporters and that they struggle to answer; many more questions were submitted than our panelists had time to answer,” it states.

Within the 26-page document, there are questions dealing with addressing health care costs and premium increases, effects on the health insurance industry, business, and jobs. Also discussed are questions on provider concerns, repeal efforts, and coverage issues.

Here is a sample question from the document dealing with Republican opposition:

Question: One major concern raised by Republicans and other opponents of the law is that it busts the budget. Did Congress burden our children with the cost of health reform?

No. Prevention saves money. Controlling waste, fraud, and abuse in health care saves money. Controlling industry greed saves money. Patient-focused health care saves money. Efficient delivery of services saves money. Not depending on emergency rooms saves money. And all these improvements are part of the new law.

 

In truth, the Affordable Care Act reduces the deficit. Congress’s official scorekeeper—the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office—estimated that the Affordable Care Act would reduce the federal deficit over the next 10 years. And earlier this year, when Republicans in the House wanted to repeal the Affordable Care Act—the official scorekeeper estimated that repealing the law would actually increase the deficit.

 

Fixing health care will strengthen the economy by keeping more Americans healthy and by making coverage more affordable for families and for businesses. Healthier workers are more productive. American businesses will be more competitive in global markets.

Throughout 2011, the group was cited numerous times by mainstream news outlets as an unbiased source in showing immediate “positive signs’ emerging from the law without reference to their liberal bend.

For example, a report from CBS News hyped Medicaid and Medicare sob stories, while calling them “an advocacy group for health care consumers.” They were used again by CBS to play up Obamacare’s “early success” while referring to Ron Pollack as a “patients rights advocate” with no mention of his liberal agenda.

Now, they will try once again to do damage control for the White House and Democrats.

The media recently used them to show signs of life from the law amid a sea of bad news – as displayed by The Huffington Post and The Washington Post just last week. Both outlets touted a “study” from the group that supposedly shows positive signs from the law. The Washington Post even gave it the headline, “Want to debate Obamacare’s cancellations? You need to see this study first.”

Enroll America is sending emails with “success stories” of people signing up for Obamacare through the faulty healthcare.gov website– the purpose of the grant given to Families USA and a tactic they have used previously.

While the group doesn’t hide the fact they’re in favor of the law, they are used as an “independent” group when referenced by the media. This is the case despite being tied to Enroll America and their close proximity to the Obama administration.

    Don’t you just love how these commie hacks just throw around our money any way they please. Now trying to put lipstick on a pig, hey liar from kenya, it’s still a pig.

    • Engage Gray Matter

      That’s the first thing I thought of when I saw the article. The Office of Propaganda and Lies and has its work cut out for it. You beat me to the punch. Yep, you can put lipstick on Obama, but its still just Obama. You can’t dress up failure….. : ) Have a great Thanksgiving!

      • J Wolfe

        I love how the headline calls them a non-partisan group, then goes on show that they and their board members are ENTIRELY PARTISAN. Once again, our lying, pathetic, Pravda-media gets the pretzel award for bending the details to make Barry look like something other than a train wreck.

        If a revolution starts, the media heads will be the first to roll.

        • http://www.droiddoes.com/ Norm

          but they won’t. Wanna know why? President Obama and the ACA are what the people of this country want. It’s helped so many Americans already get the health care they deserve. I am very proud of my President and my country this thanksgiving.

            Norm hasn’t filled his prescriptions in some time, and eventually they do wear off, leaving the patient in a delusional state.

            There are quite a few Norms, actually, using the same ‘identity’ and most likely sharing the same meds.

          • Conservative4Ever

            26,000= “many Americans” who signed up for ACA.

            +5,500,000 = cancelled policies because of ACA

            Norm keep drinking koolaide. When the employer mandate hits next year at least 60 million Americans will get cancelled policies. ObamaCare is decimating America and ole Norm thinks this is a good thing.

          • http://www.droiddoes.com/ Norm

            the fact that the 1% has to pay their fair share is a bad thing??

          • justsaynotosocialism

            You liberals wouldn’t know ‘fairness’ if it hit you upside the head.

          • EdKulzer

            Justsayno, “Norm” is a very well known Left wingnut troll in the article blogs. He’s unemployed, but makes $1.50 and hour + $.50 a comment, so when he needs money, he’ll be posting his laughable drool all over the place.

            We all laugh it this dull-witted troll since he thinks he’s making a difference in people’s minds, but, whatever.

            He’s pathetic and his life serves no purpose, but, even dung beetles eventually find a job.

          • Rebas Thgil

            Soros is overpaying him; but if it puts him that much closer to the poor house then it’s fine.

            Maybe while he is at it, Norm could tell us what Soros’ fair share is.

            I think you mean their fair share plus yours.

          • dbt3481

            The top 1% pay 39% of all taxes, the top 50% pay 97% of all taxes.

            Don’t talk to me about fair. The problem in this nation is not taxes, it is spending.

            The Obama administration has written more regulations in 5 years than all other presidents combined.

            Is that fair? Go cash your EBT card.

          • alwalden

            The top 1% cleaned up by swindling the middle class with mortgage fraud.

            An April 23, 2013 study found that “the mean net worth of households in the upper 7% of the wealth distribution rose by an estimated 28%, while the mean net worth of households in the lower 93% dropped by 4%.”

          • DJM2142

            in other words you’ve followed the lure and swallowed the government media complex’s propaganda machine bait hook line and sinker

          • Freddie King

            Another progressive ignoramus heard from …..the “top 1%” didn’t swindle anyone. Bill Clinton and the democrats foisted the Community Reinvestment Act on the lenders who were FORCED to make bad loans to unqualified individuals.

          • Timothy_D

            The CRA started with Jimma Carter… Clinton just put it on steroids.

          • Freddie King

            Of course you are correct. I put more blame on Clinton, though as the program grew mightily under his corrupt administration.

            This guy Meeks is one of the dumbest parasites I have ever seen speak.

          • capoprimo

            In spite of his stupidity, this guy made several million in bonuses and that my friend came from the Taxpayers pockets because Freddie and Fannie were broke!

          • Mel Content

            Liberals LOVE dumb “representatives of color” such as Meeks, Cynthia McKinney and Sheila Jackson Lee, while at the same time showing fanatical hatred for brilliant, accomplished black folks like Condoleeza Rice, Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, and Dr. Ben Carson. They have no use for blacks who are independent and can think for themselves.

          • SeahorseKB

            Of course they hate any black citizen who is successful and makes something of themselves. They don’t want any of the welfare slaves to the Democrat plantation to see there is a way out of dependency by being educated and hard working. The Dems know the only way they can stay in power is to keep playing Santa Claus to the illiterate takers. Sad but true.

          • lessthantolerant

            Sadly this is true, but how sad they have been able to brainwash nearly an entire race to commit suicide by stupidity.

            Rich people own STOCK because it is tax efficient. Has NOTHING to do with mortgage fraud. I bet if you looked back at 2008, the top 1% LOST HUGE amounts of net worth.

          • Timothy_D

            That is exactly Obama’s plan. His friends (the uber-rich) get stronger, while the middle class gets pushed down, eventually heading to government assistance. Where do you think the $78 billion a month (that Bernanke is printing) of fiat money is going? It’s going to Obama’s bankster friends. That is what socialists do! They want at two class population, and feeding the rich is part of the plan. You stats are probably right on, but it’s completely part of Obama’s game plan!

          • lessthantolerant

            Great plan for a revolution. Let’s introduce them to the Louie hair cut!

          • Jonathan Miller

            You are right. And it was all enabled by Democrats and bankers. Notice the perpetual pumping of the stock markets from the buying of bonds by the Fed? How about Barney Frank saying that all was well in Freddie and Fannie when GWB said something was wrong? Who turned out to be right there? I love how Liberals and leftist blame the rich for theft when they are the party that is behind it all. Wall Street donations to Dems dwarfed that of Republicans. Wall Street and Rich Donors to Dems are given a license to steal. And they do.

          • capoprimo

            You blame everyone else for the poor mistakes people make. No on forced them to buy homes worth $400-500 thousands while their earning didn’t even qualify for a $20,000 cabin. It was their sheer greed and total mental incompetence that got them in financial mess. The Banks, thanks to the Government edicts, were powerless to deny them the loans for which normally they wouldn’t have qualified.

          • Sammie Jo

            No, no one forced them but they did ALLOW it, without the program, they would have never qualified.

            I’m with you on that one because I have seen it firsthand. I had people working for me who made $15/hour (because they weren’t worth a penny more) who lived and hour or two out of town so they could buy a three bedroom house they didn’t need instead of a 1 BR closer to work. The ironic part is that they never were able to work even an 8 hour day because they spent 2-4 hours per day commuting to the sticks. Despite my attempts to reason with them, they were all convinced that they were going to flip these houses a few years down the road and retire on the income. Stupidity knows no bounds, but the real problem is that the Dems created a moral hazard by buying shaky loans from the financial institutions, creating an incentive for more of the same irresponsible behavior all the way around.

            The top 1% cleaned up by swindling the middle class with mortgage fraud.

            Your ignorance is apparent. The only people who committed fraud were the people who deliberately lied and misrepresented their financial ability to pay back their loans on their mortgage applications. You seek to blame a small group of people for all the problems of others, when too many people being their own problems on themselves.

          • MWhite

            You mean the mortgage fraud perpetrated by Barney Frank and Chris Dood and their Freddie Mac-Fannie Mae screw-up.

          • creatorwest

            Hey Alwalden,
            Yep and that’s fairly simple to understand. This country has been STRANGLED for the last 5 years with socialism and massive over regulation such that the previous upward mobility of the lower and middle economic strata was and is paralyzed from capitalistic achievement and rising upward.
            You post real numbers but you have no understanding of them only misdirected myopic anger directed by your socialist leaders.
            Not really too difficult to understand.

          • Sammie Jo

            That’s right!

          • JJ

            fair share? you are delusional. You obviously have no knowledge of tax code. The 1% are able to reduce their taxes through long term investment and property. The only way to ensure everyone is paying their fair share is through a flat tax, with no loop holes. That one percent you imagine is acctually the 53% of American middle income eaners. When Obama says the 1% he actually means those Americans that work for a living, he can not touch the top 1%, they own him.

          • alwalden

            A so-called “fair tax” is regressive and will never get through Congress.

          • Hubie337

            Obviously, you have never read the book and don’t know how it works.

          • JJ

            Its flat….. not fair. A flat tax would save American billions as there would be no need for an IRS.

          • Derek Chapman

            Correct, JJ. It just baffles the mind how Middle America can’t see through the BS. Sadly, Middle America is waking up to the charade…. but, they’re late to the party and now we’re all being served…

          • David Clark

            And what is a “fair share”? A person works hard and smart to develop a profitable business, then you socialists demand they give up their EARNED dollars to support a mob of school drop outs of which society supports a million of them in prisons. Brood mares drop babies so they get more of OUR $$$. What we really need is forced sterilization if you collect welfare.

Thank you for pointing that out.

            You’re right David Clark, we should just eat and/or starve the poor.

            It’s the Christian way.

          • Timothy_D

            Able bodied citizens should be given a “hand up”, not a life long “hand out”. Obama and his friends want to give life long hand outs, to ensure democrat control of the government.
            .
            A democrat’s worst fear is a prosperous, self sufficient, well educated, responsible and well informed populace. Should that ever happen, who would be left to vote democrat?
            .
            The destruction of the economy is intentional. Get your ignorant head out of the sand and realize that democrats don’t give a crap about you. They only want your vote, and are willing to destroy the country in an effort to retain control.

          • SeahorseKB

            This is exactly why liberals despise Thomas Sowell, Condy Rice, Dr. Ben Carson, Allen West, and other successful blacks who made something of themselves. The Dems are threatened by them.

            The PPACA will NEVER be viable. It’s about controlling the system, nothing more. How blind can you be? It will destroy the private health care insurance industry, which will only leave the government option/single payer system. If you think that is an improvement, you are probably too ignorant to draw breath and blink at the same time.
            .
            I work in the health care industry and conduct training throughout North America and most of Europe. Sometimes for a few days, sometimes for a few weeks, at different hospitals. I have seen FIRST HAND, the failures of socialized medicine.
            .
            Tell me, Al… Just how many Canadian and European hospitals have you visited? How many doctors and nurses have you spoken with, from countries with socialized medicine? How many people have you spoken with, regarding their experiences (patient perspective) when being treated in Canada, England, Scotland, France, Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, Sweden???
            .
            Well… I have spoken to hundreds, if not thousands of these same people, and I have yet to hear about a SINGLE perfectly happy experience. I could write a book about the things I have seen, and it’s not pretty. Would you like to hear about the patient transfer protocols for radiological assessments at a hospital in Denmark? It’s nothing fancy… They put a blanket over you, and wheel (gurney or wheel chair, usually) you across the street to the radiology department, regardless of weather… Rain, snow, etc. No telemetry monitoring, no enclosed bridge, not even an umbrella… And yes, I have seen this first hand!

            Not for the 59 million Americans Reuters reported have NO health care.

            And France spends half as much on health care as we do and ranks #1 in the world in quality of care while we rank #37, just above Slovenia. I have extensive experience with French health care and can attest that it’s arrogant but excellent.

          • Freddie King

            You have zero clue about health care. You are spewing World Health Organization figures that are old and non-normalized. How about you going to any of the Third World shitholes – like France – for your open-heart surgery. Good luck. I hope you croak.

          • Timothy_D

            God, you are a simpleton. France does not have the same parasitic legal system that we do, where doctors are FORCED to practice defensive medicine, in an effort to stave off frivolous law suits. They don’t have the same malpractice insurance expenses that physicians and other health care providers do, in this country.
            .
            Get rid of frivolous law suits (strict looser pays) and you reduce defensive medicine substantially. This also reduces the costs of malpractice insurance, and reduces the costs of health care delivery.
            .
            The PPACA is not about health care delivery. It’s about control of the system, which is what all liberals/progressives/communists want. In the end, it always leads to failure, and we are heading in that direction, quickly.

          • Docfinder1

            @alwalden..Well you might have experience with the French system, but I have experience with these so called “facts” you are peddling. The problem with people like yourself, regardless of if your from the Right or Left, is that you find some little morsel of evidence and you sling it out there as if to say “SEE…I’m right!”. The problem is you have no idea how this information is gathered or how each Country gathers this information. You take it lock stock and barrel as the undeniable truth. Spend some time looking into these figures, you will quickly learn that these figures are flawed from gathering. Even the WHO study that states similar information on things like infant morality is flawed because of how America records infant deaths differently than other countries. Even if these information was accurate, they are treating a Citizen of Country X to be equal to a Citizen of Country Y, when we know that different ethnicity have different health issues, occurrence of cancer, heart disease, etc. To treat people as if they are of identical genetic makeup, with the same tendency for disease, etc. Lastly, America has an issue with obesity. We have a much bigger problem with obesity than any other country due to the nature of the quantity and style of food we eat. Look up America’s Obesity epidemic and realize exactly what part Americans play in their own health issues. Obesity effects every type of high mortality disease such as diabetes, cancer, heart disease, etc. In addition, treatment of such issues is incredibly expensive because the patients are still eating high fat diets and smoking most of the time. This leads to our high cost of healthcare. Lastly, Americans are non-compliant patients. We go to the doctor acting like we are the doctor, deciding what we need prescribed and how much. If we don’t get what we want, or if we hear something we don’t like, we go to the next doctor. Lastly, if you want to control healthcare costs, place patients in control of the cost decisions. Right now Americans dream of affordable healthcare but we just want to show up, flash our benefit card, and pay a small copay. This type of consumer makes costs go up because we do not care about the costs. If we had to make the decisions on where our money was spent, if those decisions effected us, then and only then will costs come down!

This isn’t about health care it’s about redictribution of wealth. There will be fewer doctors and hospitals and medicine will decline if this ever gets implemented. God forbid!

            Never in all the debate about “fair share’ has the Democratic Left defined the terms in hard numbers. If 48% never pay a dime in federal income taxes and the top 1% pay some 64%, then what is fair? 66%, 68%?? The Left wants more and more all under the guise of fair share.

            The people losing out big time are the same people that pay a bigger % of their income in taxes — they’re called the middle class. Obama is rewarding his donors, the 1%, with a rigged, manipulated market and they’re making out like bandits. They still won’t, and never will, pay what you want them to because they’re in Obama’s pocket. The middle class is suffering dearly because of the moronic idol you drool over. He’s killing this country. The 1% will still be at all he and his buddies fundraisers though.

            What makes no sense is that having an individual health plan does not make you part of the 1%.

            The EIC and social benefits you receive on what piddley little taxes you may pay were actually paid by the 1%, 10%, 15%, & top 25%. When they pay 39-68% (self-employment double tax) and you pay 0-15% income tax – who really isn’t paying their fair share? You!

          • Mel Content

            The 1% already pays a third of all individual state and federal income taxes. Of course, that doesn’t stop dimwits like you from parroting tired old comments and suggesting they are not paying enough. If ANYONE isn’t paying enough, it’s the 40% of grown adults who pay NO income taxes whatsoever. If I had the power to change ANYTHING in the US Constitution, it would be to restrict voting to taxpayers, in terms of a minimum tax payment per year or a minimum lifetime payment overall, as a consideration to retired people. That number doesn’t have too high, maybe $250 per year or $10,000 over one’s lifetime – and I wouldn’t have a problem with a low-income earner whose tax rate comes short, and is willing to pay the difference to be able to vote. The working poor who at least make SOME contribution should still have the opportunity to vote. However, those who have NO skin in the game whatsoever should not be using the power of the ballot box to make decisions that they ultimately will never pay for.

            I just love when the Progressive/Socialist/Marxists Attack successful capitalists like the Koch Brothers. When they are losing they try to change the subject. The Koch Brothers employ 50,000 people in the United States alone. How many people do you employ Norm?
            Yes, I’ve read all the propaganda from Soros and Media Matters. What a load of tripe

          • alwalden

            Only people who employ someone should express their opinions or be allowed to vote.

            Also, blacks should be 3/5 of a person and women should be property.

            Well at least you are making sense. My firm belief is that nobody on welfare should be allowed to vote. Further, if one does not have a net IRS 1040 form tax liability, NO VOTE!!!! It’s only fair that to vote one has skin in the game. Of course, that would eliminate a huge proportion of the Obama base…..

            That is great sarcasim!!!! The ACA has acutually reduced the amount of Americans recieving the insurance they deserve. But I guess deserve is a subjective term, so in liberal land only the elite and poor deserve health care the middle gets screwed becuase they can not afford the new price tag.

          • GSU__1987

            Norm is retarded; I followed his Discus link to the following post he made elsewhere:

            TOP 12 REASONS I VOTED FOR A DEMOCRAT
            1. I voted Democrat because I love the fact that I can now marry whatever I want.
            I’ve decided to marry my German Shepherd.
            2. I voted Democrat because I believe oil companies’ profits of 4% on a
            gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon of
            gas at 15% isn’t.
            3. I voted Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.
            4. I voted Democrat because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody Is offended by it.
            5. I voted Democrat because I’m way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I
            know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers
            and thieves.
            6. I voted Democrat because I believe that people who can’t tell us if It will rain on
            Friday can tell us that the polar ice caps will melt away in ten years if I don’t start driving a GM Chevy Volt.
            7. I voted Democrat because I’m not concerned about millions of babies
            being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive.
            8. I voted Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free
            health-care, education, and Social Security benefits, and we should take
            away the social security from those who paid into it.
            9. I voted Democrat because I believe that businesses should not be
            allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give
            the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrats see fit.
            10. I voted Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the
            Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would never
            get their agendas past the voters.
            11. I voted Democrat because I think that it’s better to pay billions for
            their oil to people who hate us, but not drill our own because it might
            upset some endangered beetle, gopher or fish.
            12. I voted Democrat because my head is so firmly planted up my ass it’s unlikely that I’ll ever have another point of view.

            It’s true. A lot of Americans DO deserve to get exactly the health care that ACA is helping them to get. They deserve it good and hard, to borrow from Mencken.

            The Liberal media won’t report it so it is up to us to report over and over, this is what they said about ObamaCare…

            These are all direct quotes from Obama, and Senators about ObamaCare…

            The Obama on ObamaCare…
            Obama, Aug. 15, 2009: I just want to be completely clear about this; I keep on saying this but somehow folks aren’t listening, if you like your health care plan, you keep your health care plan. Nobody is going to force you to leave your health care plan.
            Obama, March 25, 2010: From this day forward, all of the cynics, all the naysayers, they’re going to have to confront the reality of what this reform is and what it isn’t.
            Obama, June 28, 2012: First, if you’re one of the more than 250 million Americans who already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance — this law will only make it more secure and more affordable.
            Sen. Landrieu (D-LA): “If you like the insurance that you have, you’ll be able to keep it.” (MSNBC’s Hardball, 12/16/09)
            Sen. Hagan (D-NC): “We need to support the private insurance industry so that people who have insurance they’re happy with can keep it (National Journal’s Congress Daily, 6/18/09)
            Sen. Begich (D-AK): “If you got a doctor now, you got a medical professional you want, you get to keep that”.
            Sen. Bennet (D-CO): “Start with the basic principle if you have coverage and you like it, you can keep it. If you have your doctor, and you like him or her, you should be able to keep them. We will not take that choice away from you.”
            Sen. Murry (D-WA): “Again, if you like what you have, you will be able to keep it. Let me say this again: If you like what you have, when our legislation is passed and signed by the President, you will be able to keep it.” (Congressional Record, S.6400, 6/10/09)
            Sen. Harkin (D-IA): “One of the things we put in the health care bill when we designed it was the protection for consumers to keep the plan they have if they like it”…we said, if you like a plan, you get to keep it, and you can grandfather it in.” (Congressional Record, S.7675-6, 9/29/10)
            Sen. Schumer (D-NY): “If you like your insurance, you keep it.” (U.S. Senate, Finance Committee, Bill Mark-Up, 9/24/09)
            Sen. Durbin (D-IL): “This bill before us on the Senate floor makes it clear that if you have an insurance policy that you like, you can keep it. If you like the doctor that you’re currently doing business with, you can continue to use that doctor.” (Teleconference, 12/4/09)
            Sen. Reid (D-NV):“In fact, one of our core principles is that if you like the health care you have, you can keep it.” (Congressional Record, S.8642, 8/3/09)
            Sen. Baucus (D-MT): “That is why one of the central promises of health care reform has been and is: If you like what you have, you can keep it. That is critically important. If a person has a plan, and he or she likes it, he or she can keep it.” (Congressional Record, S.7676, 9/29/10)
            Sen. Levin (D) Mi. April 6, 2012: And it is important to remember that for those who already have health insurance, the law allows you to keep your existing plan.
            Sen. Merkley (D) Or. Nov. 11, 2013: If you like your current health insurance, you will be able to keep it. And you will be able to continue seeing your current doctor.

            Lying is what Obama does best… Or stating foolish comments.
            1. I will have the most transparent administration.
            2. I have Shovel ready jobs.
            3. The IRS is not targeting anyone.
            4. If four Americans get killed, it is not optimal.
            5. There are going to be bumps in the road. (referring to Libya and Egypt protests/attacks).
            6. ObamaCare will be good for America.
            7. You can keep your family doctor.
            8. Premiums will be lowered by $2500
            9. You can keep your current healthcare plan
            10. Just shop around, for that healthcare I claimed you wouldn’t lose.
            11. I am sorry you lost your healthcare, (you know the health care you have to shop around for, ya the same health care I said you could keep, yup, that’s the one).

            One must wonder, especially seeing the lady in blue (behind the president’s left shoulder) shaking her head in agreement with the presidents statements as he is talking about how his plan doesn’t have mandates if she now would vote how she did (probably twice) in support of this president. She was simply lied to as were all Americans. Does she have buyer’s remorse? And yes, I am ASSUMING she voted for Obama.

          • Neal Avery

            She probably got what she probably voted for.

          • StraysAbound

            She voted for the Dictator-in-Chief and will vote for Hillary as well. She’ll vote any handout she can get.

            On a different note: “Messaging Cheat Sheet: Mastering the 30-Second Sound Byte.” The
            document contained ways to answer difficult questions being asked from reporters or the public.” — that has been the practice since sometime in the ’70s.

            Bill Ayers describes these pamphlets in his memoirs, which back then were called “fact sheets”. He recalls how he was sent to rallies where an organizer was handing out “fact sheets” that everyone was supposed to memorize and repeat in slogans, when asked questions, when making demands or putting together chants.

            Nothing has changed since the ’70s. All that has changed is that the damage has caused the methods and the agenda to come under scrutiny — at least from a few sectors of the population.

          • sandnomad

            Yes, Obama managed to instigate the approval of the ACA by both houses of Congress, and it became law. The Supreme Court then approved it as a tax (if you don’t purchase health insurance). Hillary is just waiting in the wings to “mandate” the ACA in order to “fix it”. And, the government is going to continue to borrow at record rates and is guiding the country toward insolvency. Things are only going to get worse, and we may have most probably already passed the point of no return, but this government doesn’t operate on mathematical probabilities, it operates on inane hypotheses in illogical equations that lead to disasterous results.

          • Constitutional Conservative

            Um, no… not one Republican voted for Obamacare; it was a straight party-line vote by Senate Democrats via “reconciliation” (a rule change that nullified the required 60 votes).

            Once again, not a single Republican voted for the Obamacare law. It actually makes me think of two quotes from Albert Einstein…

            “If most of us are ashamed of shabby clothes and shoddy furniture, let us be more ashamed of shabby ideas and shoddy philosophies… It would be a sad situation if the wrapper were better than the meat wrapped inside it.” -Albert Einstein

            “The world is a dangerous place. Not because of the people who are evil; but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.” -Albert Einstein

            It is time, “We the People” woke up and took our country back…

          • FRS

            Not one person earning less than $250k will see his taxes rise, but everyone will pay3.8% on cap gains and this tax bill called ObamaCare is a tax beginning @ $60,000. Next is rationed care or for those who do not understand DEATH PANELS

          • Loosgravel

            Just think, when the congressman called the liar a liar the liars acted so offended. They were even lying about that.

          • Will

            dont forget: bush is unpatriotic for running up 9 trillion in debt, I will stop unwarranted illegal taping of Americans, And the EVER so popular…….(drumroll)…. I didn’t hear about that till I turned on the news, like the rest of you!

          • JayHackett

            Bush came into office when the national debt was about 5.8 trillion, he left and Obama got a 10.6 trillion dollar debt. That is a difference of approximately 4.8 trillion, for those who are mathematically challenged.

            Obama inherited this 10.6 Trillion dollar debt, that the mainstream media lambasted as outrageous wasteful spending on an unwanted war, or two wars if you want to split hairs.

            Military action that is ongoing in neighboring countries are usually referred to as a single war like WWII which took place in two theatres, The Pacific Theatre and the European Theatre. (not to gloss over the other battles taking place in Asia-minor)

            Inside the European Theatre, there were major battles in Italy, France, Belgium, Poland, Hungary and many other countries.

            It is only expedient now for the Dem and progressive news media to split hairs and make this war on terrorism “SOUND” much worse for their own political agenda.

            Iraq, Afghanistan – it is all still ONE war on terrorism, it just depends on if you are an idiot lib out with a political agenda.

            Now about 5 years later the national debt is just over 17 Trillion dollars.

            Bush increased the national debt by 4.8 trillion in 8 years
            Obama increased the national debt by 6.4 Trillion in 5 years

            Argument is over, Obama wins as most careless spender of nations wealth and taxpayer money.

          • Will

            Argument is over? You mean you said your piece and don’t wanna hear anyone else. Maybe you should read the comment I was responding to before you open your lip. I responded to a person who listed many of obama’s lies…. I merely continued the list. Yes those were obama quotes. But since we are on the subject bush only narrowly lost the pissing on Americans contest. He is no conservative and has killed more people than Saddam ever dreamed of and for what? He tried to give this country to the illegals and he saw fit to give up essential liberties for a little temporary security. They are all garbage.

          • Phil

            What colossal waste of time that was. For 85%-90% that all above is actually true. For the other 8%-15% will see better coverage on the individual market than they did before “Obamacare”. For the other 3%-5% they will pay more because they can afford to do so. What you fail to mention is for the first time 30 MILLION more AMERICANS can now purchase healthcare. Jesus would not be proud of this lying, fear-mongering Republican Party, hell bent on preserving massive private health insurance profits at the expense of every single American in this country.

          • TripleA60

            Your numbers are out of whack but that is completely beside the point. You come right out and admit lying to American Citizens is fine with you as long as you get what you want… Yup, I’d size up the Democratic Party as exactly that.

            One would assume if you are correct, then millions would be signed up for Obamacare two months into the program. The web site isn’t the only way to enroll now is it (but you omitted that)? Me thinks thou protests too much…..It is a colossal failure and does not serve Jesus. And I’m a Catholic. This thing isn’t helping anyone. Face the truth, kill it, and then get to work creating a real reform of healthcare in this nation. But please spare us the WWJD. He would not sign up either. That’s what.

          • Gage Mulholland

            You are a complete fool, and certainly no Catholic. I suppose you back what Rush Limbaugh said today too. The GREY matter in your brain certainly doesn’t get much of a workout.

            LOL! That’s rich bud.

          • Gage Mulholland

            I love you don’t try to dispute the substance of what I said either. To say the law isn’t helping anyone shows your ignorance. Talking to folks as brainwashed as you is also, a colossal waste of time.

          • Hampton

            Stick around, you might learn something. Of course I highly doubt it.

          • EdTyler

            What substance? Your drivel carries none. All you utter is childish slander.
            You’ll just have to face circumstance here, maybe you already are since you’re so ready to throw slander around, Obama and his cohorts have and continue to lie to the country, lets not forget the NSA spying, IRS scandal or Benghazi deaths either. It is likely voters will remember that come 2014 and beyond. One thing is sure, “progressives” have shown themselves untrustworthy servants of the Republic.

          • Gage Mulholland

            You mean the NSA spying program that’s been going on for more than a decade? Or the IRS scandal that involved no tea party groups being denied, yet did yield left leaning denials? How bout the consulate in Benghazi being the worse 9/11 attack since when? OH YEAH, the ORIGINAL 9-11 attack, that killed some 3,000 Americans, and cost thousands more in wars as a response to it. On a Republican watch. You’re party does nothing but make government work exactly the way they campaign against it. My only question is, why do they crave the power to a Government that they say they’d like to drown in a bathtub? Oh yeah, power.

          • EdTyler

            I didn’t say he started it. I will say Obama has expanded it all, and that is indisputable.

          • jackejack

            That must be why they’re delaying the small employer mandate until after the midterm elections in 2014. If the BS you’re spouting were true,they’d move the mandate up,not back. And FYI,30 million people will still be uninsured after full implementation of this disaster. Put down the kool-aid.

          • John D

            You’re a fool. Most of that 30 million didn’t want to buy insurance. Look at how few have actually bought a policy under Obamacare. Not how many signed up, how may actually bought. Also remember that 5 million previously insured people have lost theirs because of the onerous requirements of Obamacare. The OMB has projected that the business mandate will cause another 80 to 90 million to have their insurance cancelled.
            Many businesses have put workers on a part time status or stopped hiring completely because they don’t want to be impacted by Obamacare. Others have stated they will no longer offer health insurance.
            Finally, the premiums and deductibles for even the “bronze” plans are outrageous.
            But you keep drinking that Obama Kool-Aid, you dummy. How much is the DNC paying you to troll these sites?

          • JayHackett

            About 10 million Americans have received cancellation notices on the insurance they DID HAVE.

            Right there you just RETROGRADED 30% of the number you said didn’t have insurance.

            From your own numbers now there are at least 40 million people who are uninsured.

            The 30 million you spoke of and the other 10 million who LOST their insurance BECAUSE of Obamacare.

            Are you going to pay them for their time and effort to REGAIN insurance?

            This is HOW the LIBS and idiot progressives RETROGRADE the country.

            HAHA have you even paid any attention to what it has done? Not only is the website a failure that cost us over 600 million dollars more people have lost insurance than have gained it.

      • victor_whisky

        I hate to burst your bubble but it is done all over the place. This is the new world of Public Relations, you can buy phony Face Book likes for any web site, phony favorable tweets and plant phony stories in newspapers and magazines, it is nothing new, they are willing do anything as long as you have the money to pay them. Articles written in Forbes magazine for example were mostly what they call “native advertising” in other words stories paid for by the advertiser himself made to look like articles or editorials touting how great they were or how great they are doing. The PR agencies are even used to promote wars like Bush did with Iraq 2 with phony evidence of WMD and totally untrue stories about Saddam planted in the New York Times. And like his dad did with Iraq 1 when they claimed Iraqi troops were throwing babies out of Kuwaiti hospital windows so they could take the incubators back to Iraq. Total fabricated spin put out by a PR agency in New York. And the more recent stories they put out that Gaddafi was providing his troops with condoms and viagra so they could rape women on mass, another phony story made up by a PR agency in New York to get guys like you to approve the massive bombing of Libya, a country that did absolutely nothing to us.

        So I hate to bring it to you like this but you are living in a country full of bull including the illusion that you are living in a democracy. You most likely still believe that wrestling is real.

        I also hate to break it to you, but there is no real difference between democrats and republicans, no difference between Bush and Obama. As Jesse Ventura put it, they only difference and the only thing they argue about is who is going to keep the money from their corporate paymasters.

        As one sociologist put it, Americans love to lied to.

        • Engage Gray Matter

          Not sure how you came to all that from my post. You should write children’s books or fairytales or something. Now I don’t dispute that there is very little difference between Republicans and Democrats. But to somehow insinuate I supported bombing Libya? Really. Stretch Armstrong couldn’t make that reach. Maybe you work at MSNBC or something fetching coffee for Chris Matthews and fancy yourself an informed writer. Who knows what delusions of grandeur you have, but not my issue. Fact is Obama is a liar. Pure straightforward liar. Sad thing is that there are people out there that honestly believe him. As for Bush, I disagreed with invading Iraq so I have no idea how you made the leap to think I supported Obama bombing Libya. Noting in my posts suggest such drivel. I do believe though once we did invade Iraq, we should have leveled the place and demanded “unconditional surrender”. We only need three objectives in war. All were lacking:
          1. Complete destruction of the enemy’s ability to make war.
          2. Never commit to combat operations without a declaration of war from Congress, not an “authorization for use the of force” that some mealy mouthed politician can then later disavow themselves from it (John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton, et al ).; and then commence complete destruction of population centers, hospitals, etc. It is war right? Destroy the enemy’s will to fight including civilians. Hell we bombed Hiroshima, Dresden, and several other cities didn’t we? War is an ugly thing so it should be a last resort. But if we need to engage in combat with another nation, we need to make it such a terrible thing our enemies will think twice before embarking down that road.
          3.Demand unconditional surrender.
          But you have at it with your diatribes my friend.

          • victor_whisky

            I think you have delusions of living in a pristine world, a fairy tale world were all politicians and captains of industry wear a white hat except Obama of course. If you were objective at all and knew history, not high school or college history, but real and factual history, you would know all former presidents were major liars and so it goes for most politicians. Lying is the major attribute required to fit into both gangs that run Washington DC. If there is one thing these politicians fear the most, it is an honest politicians. Occasionally one gets in there by chance, but he doesn’t last as they make sure he is not appointed to any committee, not allowed to pass any bills, not allowed to bring any pork back to his community and eventually strutted out in vicious political ad campaigns as a do nothing politician. This tactic applies to both parties. So please get your head of your majestic sand kingdom and stop making believe one politicians is better than the other when in fact they are all working for the same purpose, making sure the 1% get to keep most of the national wealth even if they have to transfer trillions of taxpayer moneys to the few select flunkies on wall street who through their actions almost destroyed the entire national economy, the economy of nearly 200 million people.

            Please refrain from insulting people who have opinions, that is a certain sign of ignorance.

Final result, equal misery for everyone.

      Their 501C3 status probably “sailed” through the IRS assessment office…because they [ahem] “do good work.” They’re probably cleaning some of the “soil” from their pants after “communication” with Mr. Obama and Ms. Jarrett since:

      “…they are credited with crafting President Obama’s, “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it” message, and are even backed with money from George Soros’ Open Society Institute.”

      It’s really all about giving U.S. citizens the “mushroom treatment” that progressives believe everyone, including supporters of the objectives of the Democratic party, must have; to be “ruled by their betters”; those “in the know.”

The entire system has spun out of control, with the little guy at the bottom completely helpless, and now in many cases brainwashed by the culture, schools, and media into willing compliance.

        There appears to be a lot with this socialist agenda. One thing you better get ready for is a loss of confidence in the US dollar. The more the rest of the world sees our country in turmoil, the better the chances they will stop supporting the dollar as the reserve currency. We made Saudi Arabia angry, and they were supporting the dollar as payment for oil. That may change now. The Chinese want to deAmericanize the world, and they have spent years setting up direct agreements with other countries to accept their currencies as payment for trade instead of the dollar. It looks like the agenda appears to be to destabilize this country and the dollar, especially if George Soros is supporting the the O’Bamacare law. Yes, there is much more going on here.

The president of that country, Maduro, has just pushed through extra powers to execute actions in their country without the country’s representatives having any say. All you have to do is search, and you will be shocked….look at what that guy in Venezuela is doing. It appears that O’Bama is following their methods of getting and using powers to run around all others in any decisions. Why can’t people see this? Who is out there to stop this process? We need something out in the public eye trying to let the low information voters know that if they vote for Democrats,. they are dooming this country to failure. The next three years will be terrible as presidential powers are used to “end around” Congress and the courts. Mark my words.

      Because it was never about providing affordable healthcare. Healthcare is just the smoke screen for “legally” obtaining citizens most private information and control. Healthcare you say? Take two aspirin and call a doctor in the morning.

      People could destroy this thing dead if they worked directly with their doctors to pay cash for most services (check-ups, shots, prescriptions, physical/examinations, etc.).

  • Silly Liberals

    It must be tough to find the success stories. Once the ads are produced and airing, the people in those ads are finding out that they are getting the boot pr their premiums are skyrocketing.
    But, Obama made sure that the minions who supported and voted for this disaster are immune from their bad decisions and pushed their cost onto the the few remaining taxpayers.

  • Aleph Cheth

    At least when Nixon lied, it didn’t cost us our health care, huge increases in personal expenses, enormous deficits and higher taxes. POtuS Obama assaults us with lies while his totally corrupt regime destroys our country. Anyone who dares fight back is a “hater” or a “racist.” The rest of us live in fear of the IRS or the savage “sons” of the bastard, praying that the country is strong enough to outlast the next three Years of Darkness.

    It’s not going to work. I will under no circumstances allow gov to be involved with my healthcare and every single person I know says the exact same thing. They can fine me (good luck getting paid because I make sure there is no refund on my taxes) or anything they want but I won’t even look at any kind of plan they are involved with. If my company drops my insurance, I will go without.

    On the bright side, my family doctor and the other three doctors in that practice have a sighn on the door that they will no longer accept Medicaid or Medicare patients. He personally told me my costs will go down for visits because of that. Secondly, they are going to start a cash only coop after the first of the year which will supplement and in some cases, replace insurance.

    The welfare scum can die in the streets. My healthcare will be provided for byt me as always… I’m not paying for theirs!

    More BS propaganda. How is Obamacare going to lower our annual deficits when it’s projected to add approximately $200 Billion per year to spending? The only way to keep America healthy and strengthen the economy was to make it affordable, which it is not. Higher premiums and deductibles are going to discourage people from getting the care they need, even though they are paying more.

    More importantly, who will believe the stories? We’ve already seen two of those “success” stories fail. Let’s wait and see who actually got to keep their quoted rate without it changing by the time they have to make their first payment. That’s what I’ll be watching for.

  • FollowTheMoneyTrailDotCom

    Business as usual in our Nation’s Capitol. The problem isn’t the Democrats, particularly, it’s the entire system, that sets up the government to regulate corporate greed, with little to no regulation on government insider greed.

    The lefties are filled with indignation about the evils of big corporations, and completely clueless about how their own party behaves inside government – stories like this will never be reported on ThinkProgress or the Koz or the MSM.

    The ACA itself is the biggest pay to play money laundering scheme ever, but you never hear it reported that way.

    The right seems incapable of raising the same level of emotional fervor about greed in government, because they benefit from it too. They really need to learn to be as two faced as the Democrats are.

    A constitutional amendment seems to be the only answer here. Otherwise DC will follow the path of Detroit, and we as a nation will fall into disarray.

    I will reduce the deficit IF millions of young people join up when they refused to in the past when it cost hundreds less EACH month or pay a small fine, if reimbursements to doctors are slashed so millions with Medicare and Medicaid can’t find a doctor who will take those plans and if care the seriously ill is rationed and the taxes on medical devices and other Obamacare taxes are collected. Finally if the states have to agree to pick up the tab for all the new Medicaid patients when the government subsidies run out two years by passing huge state income and sales tax increases. All big ifs and no one seriously believes that any of those conditions will be met.

    The propaganda sounds too good to be true?

    No, it is indeed true because the meaning of words is in not in the words but in people.

    Fact: The Democrats have insisted on sending Grannies over the cliff by having single handedly ramming the ACA down our throats! They will reduce the cost by $2,500 per person. However, “Cost control” via the Death Panel (re-branded as IPAB aka IMAB in ACA) means government-imposed rationing of care to the elderly that will end up closing a lot of aging eyes — permanently.

    In the ACA more than 18 pages confer unlimited powers to the Death Panel. Much like the T 4 Aktion, the powers assigned cannot be touched by future legislation: INDEPENDENT MEDICARE ADVISORY BOARD (H. R. 3590—SEC. 3403, Pg 371-389 and Pg 831). With the agreed upon nuclear option the Democrats can put the board in place to effectively function as the death panel aka IMAB:

    Look, everybody knows that people that never had insurance in the first place, for whatever reason, will benefit under the ACA. Those with pre-existing conditions will definitely benefit. And some others. The administration is now chanting the misleading notion that we’re only talking about 5%. Ok. 5%. Why would anybody think that the entire healthcare system should be turned on it’s head for…..’just’ 5%. Since when does the MINORITY, and a small one at that, it’s JUST 5%, drive national policy?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Again, they’re JUST 5%. Just several million, that’s all. (sarc)

    But for the MAJORITY of citizens, it’s the first chapter, the first scene, of a very gory story!!! A nightmare has been cast upon our nation and it’s people!!! All ….for JUST 5%.

    And now we know with a dead certainty that they KNEW THAT IT WAS NOT GOING TO WORK. How insidious can they get?!!! That’s pure evil. If they had told the truth about the ACA and the consequences that would come, IT WOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN BOUGHT, their so called ‘good product’. Classic BAIT & SWITCH!!! The FTC has regulations governing bait & switch schemes! He sold the American people ONE BIG LIE AFTER ANOTHER, in his fraudulent campaign for reelection!!! Polling now tells us that had he been honest and told us that we WOULD lose our health insurance, approximately 30% of those that voted FOR ohbama, would NOT have voted for him and Gov Romney would have been our President!

    They’re from Chicago folks, where lies, corruption & chaos are the faire du jour, daily!

  • JeffreyPtr

    It doesn’t matter what the public perception of the law is. It’s success depends on the uninsured healthy looking at what they have to pay out of pocket for a premium and deciding that they are willing to pay it. It needs to convince people to buy something they don’t need. Personally I am not willing to pay the premium I’ve been offered and will opt out.

  • u1776s

    Now they are spending money to make up BS stories after collapsing the whole health care system and wasting trillions of dollars. It would be hard to calculate the actual amount wasted while considering the higher premiums we have already paid due to “Obama Care” restructuring of insurance policies.
    Also they are wanting to change the name of the law by using acronyms like AHC. They are trying to distance themselves from this train wreck while they let it run full speed right into their constituents.

    • sailordude

      Fox had two stories the last two days telling you how to enroll in Obamacare without using the government website. Not sure you can count on them.

    • Dan Austin

      The sad part is that with the help of the media, Obama will probably get away with it. Just like with the IRS, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, and many others, the lie that you can keep your current health plan and doctor will fade away and be forgotten.

      The trick will be in the subsidies. Once the voters with lower middle class and lesser incomes see that subsidies will pay for much or all of their health care premium, they will forget Obama’s lies. Obama never had much support among the rich wealth and job creators anyway, so it doesn’t matter if he angers them even more or takes more of their money.

      Obama has been recently repeating the lie that the people want Obamacare, and shouldn’t be prevented from having it. Obama fully knows he’s lying. He is just well aware that repeating a lie often enough can make people believe it. Lies are a tool with which to manipulate the public. It is a cold, calculated political strategy to lie.

      You’d have to agree that the lies have worked so far. They’ll eventually work for Obamacare, too.
      In the 2014 elections, expect that angry republicans will vote in larger numbers than happy democrats with their health care subsidies. But expect Hillary Clinton, with massive help from the MSM, to be elected president in 2016.

    My mother in law just lost her doctor that she’s had for years and can’t find another one who will take her obamacare insurance!
    This thing is national disaster and no amount of spin can change that.
    Even if healthy people sign up in droves the death panels are real and rationing will be on it’s way if we don’t uproot every part of this law.

Five hundred so far and the residents are taking to the internet to complain and ridicule them for their disingenuous attempts to shift the blame. Progressives sure think alike.

    • Conspiracy_Fax

      • eLucidive

        No, I was only about 10. Yes Reagan was an actor. I guess that’s why Obama can only come up with that totally lame “I didn’t know what was happening until I saw it on TV” shtick and repeat it ad nauseum. He’s as talent less at acting as he is at leading.

    This is nothing. It will be interesting to see how they ” massage” the upcoming additional MILLIONS who will lose their employee insurance coverage next year. ALSO known by this President, the Democrats and the HHS while spewing their ” You can keep your……….”. Obama supporters can ignore the failings in foreign policy, the IRS targeting of non-profits, Benghazi, Fast and Furious and the multitude of other Obama scandals, known and unknown. Let’s see them ignore the loss of personal health coverage, the doubled premiums if they keep it or get new, the tripled deductibles and helping those who don’t have coverage pay for their “acupuncture coverage”……it’s all a scam to redistribute the wealth. What they have spent on this Law would have covered just the uninsured if that is all they claim they wanted to do. Was never about those people. It was about controlling the wealth and making their progressive Utopia realized……no one stands out, every one on the same playing field, winners and losers = Social Justice. My question is: Why do ” I ” have to lose so someone else can win???? He needs to be impeached for fraud and lying to the American people. At least Nixon had the balls to resign. This guy will have to be forced out, even in 2016 I’m sure. He will give himself another 4 with the swoop of a pen.

    • rightside100

      Oh they will probably forbid the insurance companies and businesses from notifying consumers that their health insurance policy is being cancelled until AFTER the midterm elections.

    One thing is clearer now than ever….the loudest voices in the media, academia, the Arts etc for ObamaCare are the great grandsons of eastern European atheist Bolshevik intellectuals who have abandoned the Torah of Judaism and now embrace the Torah of Leftism.

They are trying to mix a socialist program with free market delivery of it……will never work they are not compatible….this freak we have in the WH and all his demonic minions can try as they might to spin it, duct tape it…whatever…it’s doomed, it’s done, it’s over….just sit back and enjoy this fraud squirming and lying more and more….he looks more the fool for it.

    The media push won’t matter because Obamacare is going to negatively impact so many people. If a person’s insurance premiums double or he/she gets dumped by his/her insurance, it won’t matter how many “warm and fuzzy” stories the media portrays. That person is still going to be angry.

    • Dan Austin

      Lower income voters will get subsidies. That will make them forget about Obama’s lies. They will not care about the impact of Obamacare on jobs, the economy, massive debt, or ultimately the quality of health care.
      Those concerns will all come later, when there are no good alternatives.

        • http://www.droiddoes.com/ Norm

          Thats simply not true. The ACA makes it a right for all Americans to get care beyond just ER visits. DEAL WITH THAT!

          • Scotty G.

            No Norman, the ACA does not “get” you healthcare, it requires you purchase insurance, which has now doubled and tripled in price. Nobody “gets” healthcare, you still have to pay for it. Adding some stupid phrase in all caps does not change that. Seriously, dude.

          • dabba

            The ACA is unconstitutional. John Roberts took it upon himself to define it as a tax because it is unconstitutional to force an individual to buy a product under the Commerce Clause by charging them with a fine. The Obama administration still to this day will not call it a tax. You accept this because losers like you think you’re getting something for nothing.

    By the time we find out how much this new law cost, it’ll be too late. Most assuredly it’s going to be a game changing amount that adds to the cost of Government. If we continue to expect “savings” for a more efficient system and healthier Americans requiring less care, we deserve the misery coming. We face stiff headwinds with the combination of a crushing national debt service payment, hugh planned budget deficits as far as the eye can see, no annual budget to prioritise spending, automatic 10% annual increases in spending on present Government functions and 20 years of the baby-boom generation applying pressure to S.S and Mdeicare, now being “pilfered” to mask increases in Medicaid and the ACA. Add the Democrats continuing effort to glorify and increase all welfare usage. After 15 years of FDR programs it took WWII to get our nose back to the grindstone. What will it take now?

    • http://www.droiddoes.com/ Norm

      tl;dr, but the ACA will finally fix the problem of the 1% controlling health care. I am glad the President finally stood up to the tea nuts and gave health care to those in need. It was the right thing to do that racist fools like Bush would never have done.

      • ProfGeotech

        Fool. You would rather collapse the entire system and drag everybody down rather than allow the healthy to have affordable healthcare.

        Here’s news for you, Utopian Troll: healthcare is not a right, nor is it an entitlement. Under a free market, traditional insurance system, more people have access to better healthcare because the system is run like a service, not an entitlement. What’s next? Automobile insurance becomes a constitutional right? And then owning an automobile? Where does it stop? It doesn’t, and that is how you turn America into a communist state.

      • lbeacham

        Now that the “1%” are out of power, who is in control now? As for health care, is it correct to say Obama has “given” healthcare away. With the exception of several million more on Medicare, new healthcare insurance come with a monthly payment and thousands of dollars in co-pays and out-of-pocket expense before insurance is applied. Of course, thats the way it has always worked for those of us that have maintained insurance all of or lives. I am concerned that the expectatation for affordable medical care is not going to be met. If dissatisfaction from those that will be paying more combine with those that thought the deal was going to be near “free”, what will happen?

      • Travln Texan

        I have yet to read of “one” individual that now has healthcare that didn’t have it before. (and I’m not talking about being shoved into Medicare.) You would think that the Obama adoring media would be all over that person….yet I haven’t read one article.

      The U.S. government’s mammoth broadcasting arm has begun the “unleashing of thousands of hours per week of government-funded radio and TV programs for domestic U.S. consumption,” John Hudson of Foreign Policy reported on Sunday.

      The content arrives with the enactment of the Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012, sponsored by Rep. Mac Thornberry (R- Texas) and Rep. Adam Smith (D- Wash.), which was inserted into the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

      The reform effectively nullifies the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948, which was amended in 1985 specifically to prohibit U.S. organizations from using information “to influence public opinion in the United States.”

      The new law enables U.S. government programming such as Voice of America (VoA) — an outlet created in 1942 to promote a positive understanding of the U.S. abroad — t0 broadcast directly to domestic audiences for the first time.

      VoA and other programs are now produced by the Broadcasting Board of Governors, which shares a “strategic communications budget” with the State Department and has an annual budget of more than $700 million.

  • WildTurk

    Seems to me that instead of bemoaning how the Democrats and Obama administration have developed a strong PR mechanism for pushing their agenda (of course FUSA — or any other group supporting Obamacare — is going to be close to the administration) Republicans should be figuring out how to do the same thing. Not long ago, Republicans were complaining about 501(c)4 groups and how the unions got a jump on an election. Now they have some of the biggest 501(c)4 groups pushing conservatives up in polls and races around the country. The answer is simple: Develop a team, pick a PR strategy by topic, stop reacting to news cycles and instead start controlling them, stop attacking one another publicly, and reap the rewards a good PR campaign can bring. Lee Atwater understood this stuff. Let’s not let his lessons be buried in his grave!

After all, media feasts on negative; we should be so far out in front on Obamacare that all of their PR efforts would fall on deaf ears in media circles. But once again, we’ve left gaping holes for Obama’s folks to fill as they please. A savvy PR bunch conservatives aren’t!

    Mancow Muller, Chicago DJ, appeared on an interview where he claimed he was offered a $3-4 million contract if he promised to say positive things concerning Obama. This was back in the first term. Muller said that he understands this has been very typically in the industry of radio/TV. Muller flatly refused the bribe.

    The whole idea of the First Amendment is to encourage the media to keep a critical eye on the government. Yet, so much the media now fall all over themselves to get access to government officials. Of what use is a kept media to the people?

    • WildTurk

      It’s real easy, Walter. Stop watching it. Stop reading it. Their numbers go down and more of those liberal media outlets have to keep cutting back. Look at what has happened in the newspaper industry over the past 10 years. Liberal talk radio hosts routinely go off the air within a year of launching a new show. We can accomplish the same thing with TV media, but people just have to STOP watching.

    Not going to work. This has a too direct negative impact on people to make it seem good or someone else’s fault. Unlike other disasters, like raising the minimum wage which crushes low skilled workers. People don’t realize their misfortune is the direct result of bad policy. When a law directly picks your pocket, deflecting blame, or pretending it is good doesn’t work.

    Propaganda is now totally legal in the USA.
    Remember when the Zimmerman Show was going on.
    Well, while the public was freaking out about a criminal who was shot committing a crime……………

    The U.S. government’s mammoth broadcasting arm has begun the “unleashing of thousands of hours per week of government-funded radio and TV programs for domestic U.S. consumption,” John Hudson of Foreign Policy reported on Sunday.

    The content arrives with the enactment of the Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012, sponsored by Rep. Mac Thornberry (R- Texas) and Rep. Adam Smith (D- Wash.), which was inserted into the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

    The reform effectively nullifies the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948, which was amended in 1985 specifically to prohibit U.S. organizations from using information “to influence public opinion in the United States.”

    The new law enables U.S. government programming such as Voice of America (VoA) — an outlet created in 1942 to promote a positive understanding of the U.S. abroad — t0 broadcast directly to domestic audiences for the first time.

  • Trav

    Non partisan my azz…these type of organizations are nothing but shills for obama..

    Lying and saying oh yea we non partisan yet supporting a bill that was passed on Christmas Eve night, with no

    GOP support after no one read the dam thing…..on top of that the o-train went around selling the country on a lie that you could

    keep your plan and doctor.

    Friend of mine went to BCBS and signed up to look at plans and qualified for subsidies. She said soon as she entered her info

    she was transferred to healthcare.guv site where they already knew the credit cards she had from years ago, previous addresses, and employers….etc…ALL SHE WANTED WAS QUOTE

    On the first page it says group total plan is 250 deductible, 500 out of pocket max…but she never went to summary benefits page where the deductible is 1,500 and out of pocket is 5,200(those who don’t look at the fine print will be sad later, but she did not, I looked at it for her and she cancelled plan)…i think it was blue advantage 2501 cost share I……..the plan cost 302 a month but she had like 190 in subsidies which brought the cost to her to 112 a month or so…the tricky part she said was finding a plan that had her specific doctors in the network…she said one plan was 34 a month after subsidies (in network only, out of network not covered) but 0 doctors were in the network for our county, and our county has 108,000 population, why offer a plan with no doctors in the network, someone signs up for this plan I have no idea how it benefits them as they co-pay, co-insurance is not applicable to out of network.

    One crazy part she told me is part of a letter from healthcare marketplace in London KY she got after signing up..
    I knew this already…

    Question: What if information from my application changes during the year?

    “Changes can affect your eligibility for coverage through the Marketplace and tax credits. If you are eligible for

    a tax credit and you don’t report a change that may affect your eligibility, you may have to pay back some or

    all of your tax credit when you file your taxes. If information from your application changes during the year,

    you should report the change within 30 days.

    If you’re eligible for coverage through the Marketplace, contact the Marketplace at the phone number below

    to report changes that may affect your eligibility

    If you’re eligible for Healthy Connections or Healthy Connections (<there typo, not mine) contact the state agency at the phone

    number below to report changes."

    Think about it, if you are making 23,000 a year at your current job, get healthcare subsidized for 80-100 a month, why would you want to better your place in life when you are penalized? You make more incrementally, you pay more in healthcare costs, you stay stuck in the same path no fault of your own……if you are married, I read about a couple who made little over the subsidized limit…these people are incentivized to earn less. They made just over the 62,000 threshold, were told there o-care coverage not as good as old plan would cost 15,000 a year (old plan cost them 5,600, this story is on pro-publica I think) yet if one made a 1,000 less or so they would save 10,000 on that plan……..why are we being told don't worry, earn less, just stay happy where you are at in life, don't get up early and work late for that extra money or to get that raise, we are gonna suck it back out of you sorry little taxpayers.

    This law is telling everyone, we are rewarding mediocrity, we are instilling in people that making 25-35k a year is perfect, you should not wanna make 75k a year because you have to pay an absurd amount for healthcare because you are doing GOOD…t

    I am 34, SC, prices are from valuepenguin…i am non smoker and these plans are crap 3,500 DEDUCTS……these are examples for me

    If i make 32,000 a year I pay 233-358 a month with 6 bucks in subsidies
    If I make 32,500 a year I pay 239-364 a month with no subsidies ( that is 2,868-4,368 a year) 29,632-28,132 left over 8%-13% of income

    This White House is TRULY bordering on a totalitarian regime… that would even make 3rd world dictators blush.

    They have no problem using the power of the presidency to spy on people (i.e. NSA spying ), using government agencies to punish political opponents (i.e. IRS investigating, harassing, releasing private information, and now apparently dis allowing CONSERVATIVE non profit organizations… while apparently having no problem with Soros, and other Liberal non profits), deciding which laws they will enforce and which they won’t (i.e an entire list of laws the DOJ has decided NOT to enforce)… the president LIES to get his programs passed (i.e. “if you like your insurance and doctor you can keep them”, “the average family will save up to $2500 with Obamacare”, and “there are no such thing as death panels”) which we are finding out were ALL lies.

    If this was a business and these practices would be employed… wouldn’t that business be prosecuted for “invasion of privacy”, “UN-ethical business practices”, and “bait & switch”? OH, but this is the GOVERNMENT.

    THIS is why the government should be the “impartial protector of the people AGAINST these practices”, and NOT being the one CAUSING the injustice… and why the Government has no place picking winners and loses in the marketplace.

    Non partisan my azz…these type of organizations are nothing but shills for obama..

    Lying and saying oh yea we are non partisan yet supporting a bill that was passed on Christmas Eve night, with no bi-partisan
    support after no one read the dam thing after poll after poll said the American people were opposed to it…..on top of that the o-train went around selling the country on a lie after the fact that you could keep your plan and doctor.

    Friend of mine went to BCBS and signed up to look at plans and qualified for subsidies. She said soon as she entered her info
    she was transferred to healthcare.guv site where they already knew the credit cards she had from years ago, previous addresses, and employers….etc…ALL SHE WANTED WAS QUOTE

    On the first page on guvmint site it says group total plan is 250 deductible, 500 out of pocket max (she was like wow this is nice)..BUT…… she never went to summary benefits page where the deductible is 1,500 and out of pocket is 5,200(those who don’t look at the fine print will be sad later, but she did not, I looked at it for her and she cancelled plan)…i think it was blue advantage 2501 cost share I……..the plan cost 302 a month but she had like 190 in subsidies which brought the cost to her to 112 a month or so…the tricky part she said was finding a plan that had her doctors in the network…she said one plan was 34 a month after subsidies (in network only, out of network not covered) but 0 doctors were in the network for our county, and our county has 108,000 population, why offer a plan with no doctors in the network, someone signs up for this plan I have no idea how it benefits them as they co-pay, co-insurance is not applicable to out of network.

    One crazy part she told me is part of a letter from healthcare marketplace in London KY she got after signing up..
    I knew this already…

    Question: What if information from my application changes during the year?

    “Changes can affect your eligibility for coverage through the Marketplace and tax credits. If you are eligible for

    a tax credit and you don’t report a change that may affect your eligibility, you may have to pay back some or

    all of your tax credit when you file your taxes. If information from your application changes during the year,

    you should report the change within 30 days.

    If you’re eligible for coverage through the Marketplace, contact the Marketplace at the phone number below

    to report changes that may affect your eligibility

    If you’re eligible for Healthy Connections or Healthy Connections contact the state agency at the phone

    number below to report changes.”

    Think about it, if you are making 23,000 a year at your current job, get healthcare subsidized for 80-100 a month, why would you want to better your place in life when you are penalized? You make more incrementally, you pay more in healthcare costs, you stay stuck in the same path no fault of your own, you make more, you pay more, it cancels out basically……if you are married, I read about a couple who made little over the subsidized limit…these people are incentivized to earn less. They made just over the 62,000 threshold, were told there o-care coverage not as good as old plan would cost 15,000 a year (old plan cost them 5,600, this story is on pro-publica I think) yet if one made a 1,000 less or so they would save 10,000 on that plan……..why are we being told don’t worry, earn less, just stay happy where you are at in life, don’t get up early and work late for that extra money or to get that raise, we are gonna suck it back out of you sorry little taxpayers.

    It is not about providing affordable care, better care, it is about income redistribution. The people who did not want/need healthcare before will still go without.

    Those to poor to afford private insurance before will be on medicaid now still under this law, thus making this law unnecessary. Say the person is just above qualifying for medicaid..in SC, they make 12,000 a year and pay 0 premium at 34 yrs old non smoker…….the deductible is 6,300….the subsidy however costs taxpayers 8,500 a year…if they are to poor to pay a premium how can they afford the deductible? who pays the deductible on say a 1,500 procedure? makes no sense…

  • newtiffen

  • alioh61

    Wow. All the positive stories won’t mean a thing to those who will and have lost their current health care plan. It won’t mean squat to those who find that they have less coverage at a higher cost with a higher deductible. Those who will end up on Medicaid will find it is virtually impossible to find doctors, clinics and hospitals who accept it. It won’t mean anything to those who will lose their doctors. Their will be some positive stories, but many will evaporate when people finally figure out the exorbitant cost of their shiny new health care plan. There is a reason this lawless administration is doing everything they can to hide the true cost of people’s new plan until after the 2014 election. And, I don’t know about everybody else, but I’m tired of our hard earned money going to groups that are trying to put lipstick on this pig.

    Ex-Democrat supporter here. As an indie since the 1990s who finally supported the Democrats because I was sick of Republican arrogance, hypocrisy and dishonesty, I have to say that I’m terribly disappointed in the way I chose to vote because at least with Republicans we knew where we stood.

    To my liberal friends, I’m sorry. I helped you with gay rights, marijuana legalization, timber reform in Oregon, lots of things, but, in exchange you gave me a representative who tried to pass a law saying a state agency could come into our homes without a warrant to search for guns, and you gave us, well, this giant epic abortion. Worse, every time I question authority, I get called a Republican, or an NRA member… I’m sick of being insulted by the people who raised me to Question Authority when I do just that. So I will no longer be supporting liberals because they continue to betray us while blaming the other people for the same behavior.

      The sad thing is you believe these stories about the Republicans that are totally false. I guess the machine is working churning out lies about Republicans while at the same time overlooking the truth about the party that is truly corrupt, the Democrats. If you look at who has really come to the aid of their fellow citizens it is always the Republicans who finally get it done. That includes the environment, civil rights, women’s vote and hundreds of other things that the Democrats take credit for. We hold ourselves accountable when someone does step out of line unlike Democrats who never hold anyone accountable for anything. Don’t get me wrong, we have some losers as nothing is ever 100 percent perfect, far from it but the Republican party does not deserve the viciousness it receives from the left and the media who is completely in the bag for Democrats. They have the key tool to distort and cover up and blame. It’s not fair but that’s the way it is and we are doing the best we can. Honestly, I don’t see how anyone could be a Democrat anymore. I say this as a former Democrat but mostly I am a citizen who cares about my country more than party politics.

    • Wild Hog

      All you have to do to know that liberals are far from their claim of tolerance and compassion is observe their behavior when you disagree with them. They can be very vicious and cruel with no remorse. When they have no substantive reply or answer they go right to their mantra of name calling and vitriol. They are only for free speech as long as it is in line with their core beliefs. When is the last time you have ever seen a violent right wing protest? Never. Riots and hate speech is owned by the left.

      “Norman Mattoon Thomas (November 20, 1884 – December 19, 1968) was a leading American socialist, pacifist, and six-time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America. He was ordained as a Presbyterian minister in 1911. He was also active in setting up the American Civil Liberties Union. As a candidate for President of the U. S. , Norman Thomas said, in a 1944 epoch speech:

      “The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of “liberalism,” they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation,
      without knowing how it happened.”

      He went on to say:

      “I no longer need to run as a Presidential candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.””

    • ExPat_in_Krakow

      You’re absolutely correct!

      The abject failure of the website, which should have been the easy part – positive!

      Millions of people losing their insurance policies on the individual market, now seeing President Obama as the duplicitous, divisive prevaricator and outright liar that he has always been – positive!

      Tens of millions more people losing their employer-provided insurance next year, also seeing Obama as the Liar in Chief – positive!

      Millions of people losing their doctors, also experiencing Obama’s lies first-hand – positive!

      Tens of millions of people seeing their insurance premiums and deductibles increase, while seeing the benefits and coverage they want decrease, when also being charged for coverage they don’t need – positive!

      The Democrats in the Senate running for cover, and those in the House completely powerless, or exemplifying their utter cluelessness like Nancy Pelosi – positive!

      All in all, it has been a great roll-out, and I anticipate the returns to be even far more positive in 2014. I couldn’t have possibly imagined it going so well, really. Obamacare = utter positivity!

      • John Brown

        You have got those Republican talking points down.

        There is no evidence that large numbers of employers will drop coverage
        rather than comply with the law. The jury is out as to whether employee
        premiums and cost-sharing will rise more quickly as a result of full
        implementation, though overall healthcare inflation has actually been
        slowing for several years

        Since you know what is going to happen in the future.How about giving me some numbers to play the lottery.

        • ExPat_in_Krakow

          They’re not Republican talking points. The numbers come from the June 17, 2010 issue of the Federal Register, Part 2 which covers the Departments of Treasury (IRS), Labor (EBSA) and Health and Human Services. In other words, the estimates come from the Obama Administration. I’m quite surprised that you didn’t know this already.

          Specifically, taken from page 34,552, last paragraph (only a federal government document could have 35K+ pages, it’s the best way to ensure nobody reads it – at least, we all know that Nancy Pelosi didn’t read it):

          “Under this assumption, the Departments’ mid-range estimate is that 66 percent of small employer plans and 45 percent of large employer plans will relinquish their grandfather status by the end of 2013. The low-end estimates are for 49 percent and 34 percent of small and large employer plans, respectively, to have relinquished grandfather status, and the high-end estimates are 80 percent and 64 percent, respectively.”

          Here is the link for you to educate yourself:
          https://webapps.dol.gov/federalregister/PdfDisplay.aspx?DocId=23967

          In other words, Obama was telling a bold-faced, bald-faced, barefaced lie every time he said that “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan, period.” And he knew it. There are your lottery numbers, right there: 49, 66, 80 (low-, mid-, high-end estimates of the percentage of small-employer plans that will be cancelled), and 34, 45, 64 (low-, mid-, high-end estimates of percentage of large-employer plans that will be cancelled).

          And don’t even try to claim that it’s those dirty, dastardly insurance companies that are cancelling plans, not the Obama Administration nor Obamacare itself. The law made those plans illegal after any minor or administrative change to them, and therefore insurance companies can no longer sell them, or they would be violating the law.

          Really – did you not know this already? Or are you simply avoiding the truth? Or am I a racist for quoting Obama Administration estimates?

    • John Brown

      Ignore these people.
      Those that have no health insurance can sign up with the Republican health care plan.
      You right wingers should volunteer to pick up the tab for people who go to the ER for health care and can’t pay.
      That way the rest of us want have to pick up the tab.

      • ExPat_in_Krakow

        You’ll be picking up the tab for them anyway, Einstein.

        Millions more people have lost their insurance than have signed up for Obamacare, and the numbers won’t get any better in 2014. And the vast majority of those who have been signing up on the exchanges are either signing up for Medicare, or already have preexisting conditions.

        Those tens of millions of people who didn’t have insurance? Guess what? They still don’t. Why would anyone sign up for Obamacare, when they can pay much less out-of-pocket for routine expenses, pay a small fine to the IRS (if they have any taxes withheld in the first place), and can sign up at any time because insurance companies now cannot turn away people with preexisting conditions? It’s a voluntary tax, and nobody is paying it.

        Those people who didn’t have insurance weren’t participating in the medical insurance market because they chose not to, and they will still choose not to. You will still be on the hook to pay for their emergency room visits. But now you’ll also be on the hook to pay for subsidies for millions more old, infirm and sick people, while the healthy youngsters choose not to participate.

        BRILLIANT!! :-D

        • John Brown

          80 percent will not be affected by the ACA
          They have insurance through work or the federal Government.

          Sure there will be about 15 million left out because of Republican Governors who refuse to do the medicaid expansion.

          Millions more people have lost their insurance than have signed up for Obamacare, and the numbers won’t get any better in 2014.
          Right there let me know you don’t know what you are talking about.
          How about those lottery numbers seen you can see in the future.

          • ExPat_in_Krakow

            Oh, really?

            So please tell me, Carnac the Magnificent:
            1. How many people have already had insurance policies cancelled?, and
            2. How many people have completed enrollments and have successfully signed up with an insurance company for an insurance policy to be billed to them via Obamacare (none of this “Hey they put one in their shopping cart” B.S.)?

            If you can’t answer specifically, it’s you who doesn’t know what you’re talking about. And I’m not quoting any talking points about 2014, I’m quoting Obama Administration estimates on the employer mandate, which would’ve kicked in this year (2013), but were postponed until next year. Please see my link below, to the Federal Register of June 17, 2010, published by the Obama Administration, which shows the estimates of how many employer-based plans will be cancelled due to Obamacare. All those employer-based cancellations, and premium increases for those who won’t be cancelled, will be in the mail in late summer and early autumn, just in time for the 2014 midterms. BRILLIANT! :-D

            There will be far more than “15 million left out because of Republican Governors who refuse to do the medicaid expansion”. There will be at least twice that who choose not to participate. It’s a voluntary tax. It’s written into the law that no criminal charges nor liens can be applied for failure to pay for Obamacare. That means that one only has to decrease their withholdings to match the federal income tax that they must pay, and there will be no tax return for the IRS to take the Obamacare penalty tax from. BRILLIANT! :-D

            Hey – you broke it, you bought it, you own it. It’s all there in the law. Too bad that they had to pass it for you to know what was in it! BRILLIANT!!! :-D :-D :-D

And with Hillary on deck, it’s nice to see the return of the vast Right Wing Conspiracy. All of this, of course, rides on the definition of “nobody” as delusional liberals.

      • ShinTayloNY

        Nobody has lost their insurance because of this law. The ACA has reduced costs dramatically for most Americans. Millions of Americans are getting their first access to medical care.

        • Rick Caird

          LOL, you go from bad to worse. Lots of people have lost their insurance because ObamaCare decreed their plan was a “bad apple”. Now they are forced to to the exchanges to get overpriced under performing insurance with huge deductibles and co pays. They are also stuck in limited networks which may not include their doctors or the first rate hospitals. Without ObamaCare they would have kept all they had.

          You are also much confused by equating health insurance with health care. First of all, everybody in this country gets health care. Lack of insurance does not mean lack of care. However all these newly insured now face the task of finding a doctor that takes their new health insurance. If it is Medicaid that could be a huge problem.

          If you don’t understand these things, shin, it is useless debate with you. It will be like debating a rock with a tape recorder hidden inside.

        • Navigator#34

          Yes, thank you. In fact we’ve made good money off of the Obamacare rollout. As we here at ACORN like to say, sign up early and sign up often! When the website gets back up.
          Sign up your children, your pets, and any deceased relatives too, they make wonderful absentee voters as well. As far as the millions of Americans who have lost their insurance, well you’ve got to break a few eggs to make an omelet.
          As far as your information getting into the wrong hands, don’t worry, it’s safe with us here at ACORN headquarters and we promise to keep it safe from everyone and won’t release it to anyone. Another advantage is if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor and if you like your health care plan you can keep your health care plan, period.
          Thanks for your support and we promise not to release your credit card info.

        • Rick Caird

          Disqus ,lost my reply to you yesterday. I basically pointed out the argument that no one lost their insurance because of ObamaCare is absurd. Everyone of those people who lost their insurance lost it because of ObamaCare because ObamaCare determined their policies were not acceptable. There is no way to argue against that except by engaging in self deception. Not a single person who lost their insurance thinks it is the insurance companies fault.

          Many more people have lost their insurance than those who have gotten insurance they previously could not have. Sure, preexisting, but that is a very small number. You also make the mistake of confusing health care with health insurance. Many of those people who now have insurance will not be able to find a doctor or will not be able to pay the o pay.

          My bet is is we continue with ObamaCare, the number of people actually insured with access to health care will be less than before ObamaCare. In other words, it is an expensive way of losing ground.

    • Navigator#34

      That notice you got from your insurance company telling you you’re no longer going to be covered is just a renewal notice so pay no attention.

    I wonder how they plan to spend the money? There do not seem to be any positive aspects of the Affordable Care Tax so far. And wait till January when the real impact starts to become a reality. MILLIONS of Americans are going to lose their health care policies currently in effect because they don’t meet the all encompassing criteria that the interns who wrote this law decided was a good thing. The law of unintended consequences is roaring down the health care highway. I hope you can get out of the way.

    “Prevention saves money.”

    Ha! That’s exactly how they sold Britain its Stalinist system back in 1948. Brits were told that universal healthcare would result in better health, and thus less money spent. By the early ’50s, public spending had spiralled back to wartime levels. Britain recieved more Marshall aid than the rest of Europe put together, and spent it all in the first four years of the NHS.

    So parts of it – primarily no-charge prescriptions (since reintroduced in Scotland… we’ll see how well that works out, in time) – had to be diluted. They “made it work”, and we’ve been stuck with the damn thing for nearly 70 years. We’re even proud of it. For some reason. Britain has the worst death rates from heart disease and survivable cancers in the western world.

    Now, okay, Obamacare is not the NHS. Indeed, proposals for something like it are looked on by British politicians of all parties as dangerously free-market (which shows how bad things are in the Old Country). However our experience should serve as a warning: prevention might well save money, but socialized healthcare isn’t prevention. You in America are more obsessed with preventative medicine and healthy lifestyles than any other country in the world. Why? Because you know that falling ill will not only be unpleasant and potentially dangerous, but it’ll hit you in the wallet too. “Free”, or artificially cheap, healthcare is a little like the banks being told they’re “too big to fail”: they know near-failure will be problematic, but not nearly as problematic as it would be without the government watching their backs, so they take greater risks. Similarly, why look after your eyesight when spectacles are “free” (they’re not now, but were before those early reforms)? Why eat carefully when you can get a “free” supply of Zantac for life or “free” bypass surgery? State socialization of healthcare leads to worse health, and greater costs. Don’t fall for it.

  • Hank Seiter

    Lying fascist pigs all. And we also know the shamestream national socialist media has whored itself to Obama and the Democratic socialist who shoved this legislative garbage of ObozoCare down the throats of the American people. And keep in mind, website troubles are the very minimum of what’s wrong with this leftist healthcare fiasco. The lying filth Obama not only promised we could keep our present policies and doctors if we liked them … (PERIOD!), he also promised ObozoCare would be self-funding. And we KNOW that won’t be true.

    And Obama/Pelosi/Reid also promised there would be no death panel but we have found out after reading the darn thing that there is indeed a bureaucratic panel that will essentially function as such, particularly in regard to the elderly who might be running up too much costs according to the bean counters. You see, under the necessarily limited funding base of ObozoCare, the bean counters will have to make decisions like, “Okay, we have this old geezer who needs a $200,000 operation to prolong his life another three months, but you know, we can vaccinate 50,000 children or give organs to five other people for the same cost.” YOU KNOW THAT IS WHAT WILL HAPPEN UNDER OBOZOCARE.

    I don’t even think the Democratic socialists (including Obama) really care if ObamaCare tanks because the national socialist media will blame it on the Tea Party, Republicans and conservatives in general and then start trumpeting the need for an even more radical government-run single-payer system. I really don’t think under the present disaster ObamaCare is going to find enough healthy young people to fund those in the system who are chronically ill or having end-of-life health issues or who have pre-existing conditions that will diminish the quality and coverage of healthcare to those who normally aren’t a drain on the public resources.

    I also resent having to pay two or three times more to cover my own healthcare and that of my family’s (something I’ve been doing for the last 35 years with great success) as well as subsidizing the healthcare of those engaging in or living high-risk lifestyles. Bunch of commies.

    Look, the bottom line is this, if you believe Marx’s line “from each according to their ability, to each according to their need” and that government is a means to that end, YOU’RE A MARXIST. Whatever form of government you wrap around that kind of statist redistributionism is mere windowdressing and we’ve seen exactly that with the shredding of the U.S. Constitution by Democrat socialist and commies the last fifty years.

  • Dmacwired

    Boiling it all down to the salts what we are about to be treated to is the administration will pay for good press about the ACA – whether they admit it or not they will be paying for it one way or another – and then someone will have to pay people to lie about how good it is – and I expect that will be the administration as well which means the US Tax payer will be paying to be lied to in a really polished and professional fashion.

    Remember this:

    Bottom Line from now on, assuming some have just now caught on, is:
    Our current president lies habitually therefore you can’t trust him.

    For the simple minded who really think this president cares about you because he said so and promises hope – you need to repeat ten times every morning when you wake up, again at noon just before lunch, then at dinner time and right after your head hits the pillow – this: “Barack Obama lies therefore I cannot trust him”

    For those who are not as simple minded but still hold on to hope add this to the mantra.

    “If he lies to the nation what makes me think he isn’t lying to me?
    Who am I that I mean anything to him and should expect to receive free gifts from a liar?
    Could I simply be a pawn in his game?”

    For those that work for a living and hang on to hope as promised by your president add those thoughts to your commute and consider history’s lesson.

    The poor disenfranchised disaffected, and oppressed have always been used by tyrants to over throw political systems. Once the tyrant takes complete control the dictator in the tyrant comes out and life gets worse not better and the poor are forgotten because they are no longer needed and lets face it they were a burden when resources were plentiful so how much more so will they be dead weight when the economic engine that was is idled by a corrupt government.

    That means those who hope in the promises of this president are prisoners of hope soon to become fools with out any hope of ever changing their lives. In this country you truly have the hope of opportunity of making a difference in your life. That is true if you are willing to do what it takes to wok for what you want. If you think anyone is going to just hand it to you on a silver platter because you deserve it and somehow the stars aligned to make this happen then you are deluded and ripe for being used by people who laugh behind closed doors at your stupidity.
    That’s the world we live in and that’s how it’s been for all of recorded history.

    America has made provision to care of the poor and we have spent billions doing so it’s not for lack of caring or trying. The problem is that takers always take.

    Since they are in it to win they are going to tell lies till they exhaust the possibilities of twisting the truth.
    What really sickening me is how this president is so transparent in his lies with a record of deceit and premeditated at that but the powers in this nation who have the muscle to expose the man for the fraud he is go out of their way to white wash the lies and become the president’s defender.

    We are being dragged kicking and screaming into austerity with no hope of ever returning to the lives we knew and loved.

    “To attract people, to win over people to that which I have realized as being true, that is called propaganda. In the beginning there is the understanding, this understanding uses propaganda as a tool to find those men, that shall turn understanding into politics. Success is the important thing. Propaganda is not a matter for average minds, but rather a matter for practitioners. It is not supposed to be lovely or theoretically correct. I do not care if I give wonderful, aesthetically elegant speeches, or speak so that women cry. The point of a political speech is to persuade people of what we think right. I speak differently in the provinces than I do in Berlin, and when I speak in Bayreuth, I say different things than I say in the Pharus Hall. That is a matter of practice, not of theory. We do not want to be a movement of a few straw brains, but rather a movement that can conquer the broad masses. Propaganda should be popular, not intellectually pleasing. It is not the task of propaganda to discover intellectual truths. Those are found in other circumstances, I find them when thinking at my desk, but not in the meeting hall.”

Just consider: “The government will neatly sidestep the mess they’ve set up on purpose, will be able to demonize the providers (who end up not getting paid), and can step in to “save the day.” And saving the day means taking over the now-bankrupt assets of the provider side of the health care delivery system.

    You want “positive”?…

    Obamacare will positively:

    Financially handicap the youth of today.
    Remain a disaster and suppress Freedom.

    The ‘worst is yet to come’ for Obamacare.
    The Obamacare ‘Employer Mandate’ was delayed
    until 2015, a one-year delay of a major
    Obamacare component. A tidal wave of people
    will have their Health Insurance cancelled
    and forced onto the Obamacare websites
    HealthCare and CuidadoDeSalud.

They will call this monumental cash grab anything but the disaster that it is. And of course they’re “rewriting” the law (again, illegal) so businesses will hold off implementing the ocare mess until November 2014 AFTER the mid-term elections. Yeah, I guess nobody will notice any of this until after the elections. That’s what O & his scummy pals are counting on. He’s counting on the brain-dead people that voted for him twice. I hope everyone that has been SCREWED by this “compassionate” law will be voting OUT all of the self-serving idiots who sentenced us to this fiasco.

        Of course the repubs have some of these front groups as well. The difference though is the MSM will typically identify them as a repub friendly group, while they will not challenge the “non-partisan” designation for the dem friendly ones.

    The Democrat Party is supporting and practicing

  • Honest John

    How did it EVER become “acceptable” and “reasonable” to use government money (taxes and the new monopoly money) to fund “government news” (aka propaganda by anyone who has not drunk the Kool-Aid)? Consider the MILLIONS (surely billions by now) spent to fund PBS/NPR – the ultimate propaganda organ for “big government” which essentially means the Obamacrat Party BUT regardless of which political party is the greater demagogue.

    This government funding of propaganda outlets is little more than a re-election campaign for the incumbents.

        Privatize everything
        Science is not
        More oil addiction
        More guns solves everything
        remove the minimum wage
        Serve Pharma
        MORE Corp $ in elections

        Whose agenda is THAT?

        I bet have to tell you – the ELITE agenda.

        Brainwashed and no one will be able to help you see it. No one, although it THAT damn OBVIOUS!

        • Msan

          let me correct you on a few things:
          Republicans want to lower EVERYONE”S taxes, including yours.
          Regulations have benefits and they also have costs. Are you willing to pay more costs?
          Privatizing saves tax dollars. Do you want to pay higher taxes?
          Please name a Republican who is against hydraulic fracturing. Many Conservatives are SKEPTICAL about global warming. Is it wrong to be skeptical? Is global warming your new religion?
          How about more natural gas addiction? (we have 200 years worth)
          Yes, more guns in the hands of responsible citizens reduces crime. Putting dangerous crazy people behind bars also reduces crime.
          If you remove the minimum wage more teenagers will be employed.
          Pharma has saved and lengthened many millions of lives.
          The Supreme Court decision that allowed more political speech for corporations also allowed more political speech for unions. Are you against that?

          I’m not rich. I just want more liberty.

          • HopeForpeaceNow

            Sorry. You responded with exactly the trained answer I accuse the right of. did you not notice that?

            “Republicans want to lower EVERYONE”S taxes, including yours.”
            Google any of these articles:
            “High Taxes? Actually, They’re at a 60-Year Low”
            “Taxes are lower on families than they’ve been probably in the last 50 years.””
            “CBO: Fed tax rates hit historic low – Tim Mak – POLITICO.com”
            “Tax bills in 2009 at lowest level since 1950 – USATODAY.com”
            “Lowest income tax rates in nearly 60 years – Department of Taxation”

            The real goal of the right is to shrink gov small enough you can drown it in a bathtub (Norquist). They lie to you.

            The cost of non-regulation as tallied by the FCIC report = $11 trillion lost in the meltdown (which yes, CONS have trained you happened BECAUSE of regulation … again, read 700 hours of first source under oath testimony in the FCIC report – you are being lied to.

            If more regulation was hurting industry, profits would be down … are they?? Or do the Kochs just want to pollute more … so they have AFP train you to vote for their pollution so they can profit more??/ Do YOU know? I do.

            Perfect … then you claim adding a profit margin makes anything cheaper. Think often??

            Who runs at lower op costs – medicare or Humana??? Know?? Did adding in private contractors to do the work of the military make the Iraq war cheaper? do you know???

            And then you call science a religion, as trained and promote the idea that we should keep burning more carbon, just as I said. Do you think science is no longer? Is science “over”? Have they all sold out? NASA scientists are frauds and liars??? Wow – look what a fool they turn you into.

            CONS want to light the fuse in the carbon bomb …. so a few can profit now. As I said.
            American Energy Policy in which we have 200 more years of “cheap”
            energy underground WILL KILL OFF THE HUMAN species … not that CONs
            care. You are a patsy for the Kochs .. you don;t even know it … and no one could help you see it.

            If more guns made America safer, we’d be the safest nation in the world.

            We rank #1 in guns per capita … nearly twice the rate of #2 & #3 – Serbia and Yemin. Are THEY safer for having more guns? See you are trained like a tool of the industry. As I said. More trickle up + more poverty + more guns = ?? MORE STABILITY ???

            Can you not do that equation????

            oHH YESSS REMOVE THE MINIMUM WAGE IN A DOWN EMPLOYMENT MARKET – HOW THEY TRAIN YOU TO HOPE FOR $4 AN HOUR! STUPEFYING! Once you make $4 an hour, they’ll have you still blaming the poor for it somehow.

            And you cant see then, how you serve Pharma, the gun lobby, Corps who want to own our politicians, the elite and their corps who want less rules in the markets they built, own and run, billionaires who want to pay lower taxes than teachers do … and how dumb do you have to be to fall for “greed regulates itself”??

        It would have never passed had the American people been told the truth.

        Which is the reason the Obama administration needs to spend millions trying to convince the American public that it’s a great idea. Lefty apologists for the malfeasance and incompetence of this administration apparently have no sense of personal embarrassment or shame.

      And of course, I note that you do not comment on the fact that THIS PIECE OF CRAP WILL NOT WORK. You can pretend that this law is like other laws – discussed and vetted and worked on and passed in a bipartisan way – but that would be a lie. This is the problem with you guys approach to this. You had no interest in actually working out a solution to our nation’s healthcare issues – you just wanted to force through your proposal, which you did. So lets not pretend that this is acceptable to the nation – call a spade, a spade, and recognize for once that you guys forced it through, you used coersion in fact, and you own it. It is partisan, it has always been partisan, and it will always be partisan.
      But I know that it goes right along with you leftists philosophy – which is that coersion is a necessary part of governing. You are the anti-liberty party. I will be really happy when this thing collapses.

    Just give our taxes to those with no healthcare, it would be far less expensive; or enroll them in Canada’s scheme after deporting them, they should get along just splendidly.

      Yes, obama does resemble a steaming turd…apologies to steaming turds.

    If the Liar in Chief actually HAD a positive story, he wouldn’t need the left wing media to prop up his BULL SHlT.

    We’ve already heard him tell us how ‘everything is going to be alright. . . you can keep your doctor if you want to keep your doctor . . . and you can keep your insurance plan if you want to . . . . . . . . . . . . . . and ALL that turned out to be BULL SHlT.

    Try telling a family whose insurance premiums are skyrocketing January 1 what a wonderful F’ing story it is. Try telling an elderly couple that their insurance is doubling or tripling in cost with extreme high deductible that that is a wonderful F’ing story.

    Obama needs to go. Time to IMPEACH him. I’m tired of his lies and false promises.

    How many millions have the Koch Brothers and other right wing groups funnelled into trying to destroy the ACA?

    • Todd Clemmer

      Not enough. They need to invest more. Scumbag.

    • strongmind

      how many hundreds of millions did left wing groups…. who stand to gain in political gain and financial reward….. spend to create obamacare?

    • Mel Content

      The ACA is self-destructing on its own with no help from the Koch Brothers or any of your other favorite bogeymen, you pathetic troll.

      Obviously NOT ENOUGH!

    Non Partisan group (with ties to the Obama Administration) Families USA, can they get any more pathetic? You read this article and your stomach turns. Are these the people Families USA that want to turn the Thanksgiving dinner table into confrontation between young and old. Maybe the parents or family members who ever want to start something can download the 26 pages of propaganda dealing with the Obamacare (ACA). Want to know why i’m staying home this Thanksgiving look no further than this article. If Christmas is anything like Thanksgiving I’m staying home for that as well.

    And his lackeys don’t want him labeled “President Food Stamps”?

    Here, a couple more ‘positive stories’ direct to Obama that I heard on my way to the Political Zoo that is modern day American Politics.

    From Wendy

    Hey Obammsi, I just got my first abortion today. It was like so cool and everything and didnt even hurt at all. Can you believe that Obammsi!? Like thank the tax payer for me sweetie as Im now free to continue to pursue my current lifestyle of free love!

    Thanks Obammy!

    From Juan Pedro Sanchez Castro Gutierrez the 3rd

    Hola Hermano,

    just crossed the Rio today and like WOW, free health care for the senoritas and me little ninos! All 9 of them! Me gustas tu Obama! We sure to vote Democrat soon, once you give us that quick Amnesty!

    Well, my amigo, time for me to go, the border guards are coming and we are not in a sanctuary city yet!

    Adios!

    Well, just two wonderful stories for the Media to share.

  • CareerPolitician

    Just how attractive is ObamaCare ? … imagine if there was no law mandating you buy it ? … how many people would sign up ?

    • Tina Delgado

      Some would who would get the premium for free.

      • CareerPolitician

        … I should have asked how many people would “purchase” it ?

        • Tina Delgado

          Four to five maybe . The whole thing is unnecessary!

      • Morgan Norris

        No body, not even the poorest gets it for free. There is always a co-payment, and a deductible, and the value added taxes you pay on everything you purchase, for all the so-called provided by govt. benefits. Wake up libs. Everything costs money, and the government has NONE! They take it from us in hundreds of ways to give to the lazy. I want to help the poor and those that cannot help themselves. However 87.5% of the people on OUR tax dollars are scofflaws encouraged to cheat by our govt. social service entities. That is why there is baseline budgeting. To grow the dependency state, and it has worked very well for the commie left. The poor in this country no longer have any hope for their own future thanks to the evil liberal democRATS.

  • knighttemplar01

    They really do believe their own press (the msm propaganda wing of the obama administration) only groups in the tank with him would write lies spinning this disaster positively. Do they know that 60 % of the site isn’t even written yet, and the 40% doesn’t work (5million+ lines of code=40% of site content) and never will. And when all is said and done, the dust settled close to 200 million Americans that used to have decent affordable health care WON’T!

  • Marykay Smith

    This is illegal, and a conflict of interest. (Whats new with this DICKtater, liar and chief?) This a-s-ho-le and chief, and his regime needs to be thrown in jail. Not just out of office.

    • RogerW

      Very true. This is not the first instance. It’s repetitive illegal behavior that has become the ‘policy’ of this administration. They should be behind bars – like any other common criminal.

    • Honest John

      If it isn’t “illegal” then what the heck is considered “illegal”? What else could he do? I’m perplexed as well.

  • Symone

    It’s been established that Obama has been paying blogs millions to give him good print. As an independent, I see the propaganda on the left and right and Obama is no different than any other egotistical politician that needs to believe good press about himself.

      Oh my God how mind-dead can anyone be? Another , “Blinded by the dope” Choomgamger.

    • RogerW

      He’s ‘no different than any other egotistical politician.’ Really? Please point the link out showing how George Bush tried to manipulate the media by paying a ‘non-partisan’ media outlet money to manufacture ‘positive spin’ propaganda on his policies. Or Bill Clinton. Or any of the other Presidents before him. This is outrageous behavior for a ‘commander in chief,’ and equating him to other politicians with the same ‘they all do it’ spin is a) blatantly false and b) does not excuse him from this behavior.

      • Honest John

        You must have forgotten that GW is “the role model” for every conceivable form of corruption and malfeasance – just ask any leftist liberal. Yes, he suffered from being a decent responsible adult, and that just don’t fly no mo’.

      Wait a sec here… Obama has been using YOUR and MY taxes (and the new monopoly money they are printing) to fund these propaganda outlets. I WISH that he, Obama, was paying these folk, but… it’s you and me and the Tooth Fairy paying the bills. Criminal? Hmm…

  • LeQuin Johnson

    Numerous reports are coming out estimating 10’s of millions will lose their employer paid health insurance in 2014. Most of those people are the middle class, who will now have to pay more for insurance. How is charging the middle class more, taking away any spending income they have left, to pay for other people’s insurance going to help the economy? It isn’t! This is the largest redistribution of wealth ever, and the sheeple are letting it happen. It’s not the rich paying for the poor, it’s the middle class paying for the poor, making the middle class the poor also! All of this could have been avoided by expanding medicare and raising taxes marginally across the board, and tort reform! But no, no tort reform and let’s continue to have frivolous medical lawsuits where the lawyers make millions. That’s the largest cost in health care right now. But the lawyers support the dems, so that couldn’t happen. This law doesn’t lower the cost of health care one bit. It’s an INSURANCE law, and all it does is charge the people wor
