It’ll Be Worse a Year From Now

November 16, 2013

About 8,800 West Virginians have learned during the past few weeks that President Barack Obama lied to them. But the number is peanuts compared to what’s going to happen about a year from now....

The Affordable Care Act requires insurance companies to take people with pre-existing conditions and bars them from dropping policies of people who become seriously ill. Republicans have never supported this. They apparently don't care about these people and don't want healthier and younger people to have to subsidize them. They prefer social Darwinism, survival of the fittest. - Robert Reich

Seems todays NR is brought to you by the health insurance industry. So many articles praising republican bill that says you "should" be able to keep your health insurance.

Funny how not one of the articles mentions that the insurance company can still cancel your junk insurance if they want.

Repubs sold out to the insurance companies and the morons are running around convincing the low information people that this is a good thing.

When you get sick and the insurance company cancels your policy, let us know how it works out when you say "Id like to keep my junk insurance".

So repubs want you to give up any rights you gained under Obamacare....brilliant.

Goosy, can we expect your Liar in Chief to start telling us “If your you like your employer-provided health plan, you can KEEP your employer-provided health plan, PERIOD,” or has the Obumbler learned his lesson about what happens to his poll numbers when he repeatedly LIES to the American people?

And define “junk.” Because apparently YOU loons think “junk” includes any policy that doesn’t cost three times your current rate to cover mammograms for men and pre-natal care for post-menopausal women. Derrrrr........

ButBushWhineFactory “The Affordable Care Act requires insurance companies to take people with pre-existing conditions”

... which is it’s obvious downfall. Why buy insurance when you can just pay a little “tax” and then sign up for insurance when you develop a major medical condition? But then the Unaffordable Care Tax Act never was intended to be the final solution now, was it, LYING libs. Obamascam was just another step down the road to single payer. Why can’t you libbies just admit that? Typical “end justifies the means” lying libs.

This is what the GOP wants to protect. They don't represent you:

In America today, the top 1 percent owns 38 percent of the financial wealth of America. The bottom 60 percent owns 2.3 percent.

In America today, one family, the Walton family of Wal-Mart, owns more wealth than the bottom 40 percent, and the top 400 individuals in this country have accrued more wealth than the bottom half of the nation – over 150 million people.

In terms of income, the top 1 percent earns more income than the bottom 50 percent, while the wealthiest 16,000 Americans, who make more than $10 million a year (the top 0.01 percent), saw their income increase by nearly a third from 2011 to 2012.

According to the most recent study, from 2009 to 2012, 95 percent of all new income went to the top 1 percent. Meanwhile, since 1999, median family income declined by more than $5,000 after adjusting for inflation. (cont.)

(cont.) Today, a record-breaking 46.5 million people live in poverty in the United States. At 21.8 percent, we have the highest rate of childhood poverty in the industrialized world. One out of four kids in this country now lives in a family that receives food stamps.

Poverty among seniors is growing. Over 9 percent of seniors lived in poverty last year, higher than in 2009. More American seniors were living in poverty last year than in 1972.

In recent years, while median family income has declined and poverty has increased, the number of millionaires and billionaires has grown at an extraordinary rate. In 1996, there were 121 billionaires in this country. Today, there are 442.

Do you believe that the rapid increase in wealth and income inequality in the United States is a moral issue? - Bernie Sanders

Keep voting GOP and this will continue.

@bushcrimefamily,

You state that "This is what the GOP wants to protect"

Then you post "from 2009 to 2012, 95 percent of all new income went to the top 1 percent."

You may want to consult Robert Reich on this but I'm pretty sure a Democrat has been President since 2009 and that Dem's controlled both the House & Senate in 2009/2010 and have controlled the Senate since then.

So who's really protecting the wealthy here? The wealthy, especially the Wall St elite have thrived off liberal policy. Maybe ask Reich how quantitative easing works?

bushcriminal, When your goberment (currently liberals) is giving 85 billion a month to wall street who do you think makes out? I'm not complaining much, 3 of my major stock holdings have increased 35%+ over the last 2 years. I'm not a 1%er. LOL

You do realize that only about 15% of the population owns stock? Do you suppose it's the top 15% or the bottom 15%?

You also might want to research the years the stock market increases the most and what party is in power more often during the increases! Being of the sheeple crowd does not change the facts! He Ha

@bcf,

"Republicans have never supported this."

I guess Reich hasn't read the Republican plan! From Bloomberg, "The Republican plan, by contrast, treats pre-existing conditions as a significant but discrete problem. It doesn’t try to redesign the entire insurance market around them. It offers subsidies and strengthens regulatory protections for them, but in a way that doesn’t pose the risk that Obamacare does of destroying that market." The plan sets up a $25 billion fund for people with pre-existing conditions.

Please tell Mr Reich to read Sec 301 Subtitle B—Ensuring Coverage for Individuals With Preexisting Conditions" of the ‘American Health Care Reform Act of 2013’!

bushcrimefamily,

Please refer to previous post about who's been in charge since 2009!

This is the result of voting for Democrats!! Thanks for making that point repeatedly!
