Hoping to ride law’s shortfalls into wins at 2014 midterms

October 21, 2013

The GOP is dismantaling itself with the Tea Party split within it. The voters will certainly side with supporters of a law intended to help the little guy regardless of how flawed the law is over the side that promotes hatred at almost every turn and has not done anything obvious for the little guy people like most of us.

Six voters in ten describe implementation of ObamaCare as “a joke,” and more voters than not say problems with the government’s health insurance website are so bad someone should be fired, according to a Fox News national poll.

The new poll, released Wednesday, also finds a majority continues to dislike President Obama’s signature achievement: 51 percent of voters use negative terms to describe the health care law, saying it is either “a step backward” or “disastrous.” That’s down two percentage points from 53 percent in August. On the other side, 44 percent describe ObamaCare positively, either as “wonderful” or “progress.” It was 43 percent two months ago

Croaker, I would be happy to engineer your * and your butt too since they are co-located.

How about engineering them into an Obama Happy Face? Your butt cheeks are a little smaller than Obama's ears, but I am very good with Solidworks.

And how about redoing the orifice so that it is an Obamaphone holder?

Then you can "tweet" 24-7!

Market Watch

"The Obama administration will delay enforcement of the Affordable Care Act’s health insurance mandate, extending how long Americans may go uninsured before facing a penalty under the law, MarketWatch has learned.

Also see: 10 things Obamacare won’t tell you

The health care law requires most people to have health insurance by Jan. 1, 2014 or face a penalty, but the Administration may postpone when those penalties will go into effect. The law allows for “short coverage gaps” of up to three months before imposing the penalty, which is $95 or 1% of an individual’s income (whichever is greater) next year. Under the current rules, someone would have to be covered by March 31, an official with the Department of Health and Human Services confirmed, which is the final day that people will be able to purchase health insurance on the public exchanges, or marketplaces, created by the ACA."

Wheeldog, perhaps John G. Taft’s Republican grandfather wasn’t facing $17 TRILLION in liberal-progressive policy-generated National Debt?

I’d bet Grandpa Al would be a Tea Partier today. And I bet Grandson John voted for the only Presidential Candidate to ever sign a $17 TRILLION taxing-spending bill that didn’t have one Republican vote.

Legislation that could wreck the best healthcare system in the world was passed using a legislative TRICK of DECEPTION that normally was used for odious PORK BARREL items.

I think any administration that pulled that trick on the most important and controversial "law" in the history of the 21st century is not worthy of any respect or praise."

The following is an excerpt from a NYT article by John G. Taft: "As I write, a photograph of my grandfather, Senator Robert Alphonso Taft, looks across at me from the wall of my office. He led the Republican Party in the United States Senate in the 1940s and early 1950s, ran for the Republican nomination for president three times and was known as “Mr. Republican.” If he were alive today, I can assure you he wouldn’t even recognize the modern Republican Party, which has repeatedly brought the United States of America to the edge of a fiscal cliff — seemingly with every intention of pushing us off the edge."

Mr. Taft feels that the traditional standard of stewardship of the Republican Party has been preempted by a radical faction that resembles the old McCarthy era of the1950's.

Obama likely calculated it to be much more difficult than it proved to be to get Obamacare in to law.

When the challenge went to the U.S. Supreme Court, Obama likely expected key elements of the law to get struck down. Obama isn't stupid, even he knows the law isn't Constitutional.

Anyway, it had to come as a complete shock to Obama when Chief Roberts handed him such a gift in the summer of 2012 by putting his stamp of approval on Obamacare by declaring it a tax & thus Constitutional(in spite of Obama declaring it wasn't a tax).

What are the odds? Has such action ever occurred on the nation's high court involving something as important, impacting people's personal liberty and health?

No wonder the Obamacare website is such a disaster. They never expected the law to hold up in court & so they slacked on the roll-out prep, plain & simple.

Further demonstrates just how stupid, gullible, and suckers the sheeple really are. Even more stupid than Barak estimated.

“A Republican think tank provided the details”? Name that “Republican” think tank, ButBushFamilyWhiner. Or is copy-dumping anti-Bush babble from others’ silly blogs all you do?

Reich had a third paragraph you could have copy-dumped here, ButBushFamilyWhiner, but we’d just laugh at your failed Third Reich, too. LOL

2. Had Democrats stuck to the original Democratic vision and built it on Social Security and Medicare, it would have been cheaper, simpler, and more widely accepted by the public. Maybe, someday, we'll get there. - Robert Reich

1. For those of us who have been arguing for years that the best way to provide comprehensive health insurance to Americans would be to graft it onto Social Security and Medicare, and pay for it through the payroll tax, Republican opposition to the Affordable Care Act has been deeply ironic. Republicans were the ones who initially demanded it be based instead on private insurance, and be paid for with a combination of subsidies for low-income purchasers and a requirement that the younger and healthier sign up. A Republican President (Richard Nixon) came close to enacting such a plan. A Republican think tank provided the details. A Republican governor (Mitt Romney) did a trial run (in Massachusetts). Yet now that the essential Republican plan for comprehensive health insurance is being implemented nationally, Republicans are apoplectic.

Carney Ducks Obamacare Questions, Walks Out of Press Briefing

Spokesman for “Most transparent administration in history” can’t answer basic Obamacare questions White House spokesman Jay Carney today abruptly walked out of the briefing room after struggling to answer questions related to Obamacare.

As he walks out, frustrated reporters can be heard asking questions, including:

“Have White House officials watched anyone without insurance go through the website, trying to help the situation?”

“Couldn’t we have a [HHS] rep just come to the press briefing?”

DENIERS!!! BBBBBBWAHAHAHAHAAH!

WSJ:

A federal judge on Tuesday refused to dismiss a lawsuit that seeks to block the Obama administration from offering subsidies to low- and middle-income individuals who buy health insurance though online exchanges run by the federal government.

U.S. District Judge Paul Friedman in Washington, in an oral ruling from the bench, rejected several Justice Department arguments on why the legal challenge should be tossed out of court.

The challengers, four individuals and three employers, argue that the insurance subsidies are barred by the actual language in President Barack Obama’s signature health-care law, the Affordable Care Act."

BBWHAHAHAHAH!

Kaiser Health News

Health plans are sending hundreds of thousands of cancellation letters to people who buy their own coverage, frustrating some consumers who want to keep what they have and forcing others to buy more costly policies.

The main reason insurers offer is that the policies fall short of what the Affordable Care Act requires starting Jan. 1. Most are ending policies sold after the law passed in March 2010. At least a few are cancelling plans sold to people with pre-existing medical conditions."

OBAMA LIED, HEALTH POLICIES DIED!
