So atoddh, you actually believe insurance companies created the exchanges to INCREASE competition? Seriously? LOL

Insurance companies created the exchanges to force Americans to do business with them alone. Competition was NOT their motivation for participating. Only a leftist ideologue with absolutely NO experience in private business could make such an idiotic statement.

folk: by arranging networks insurers can create competition ;negotiate the best rates. This is already being done by HMOs. Nothing new. Something has to be done about escalating provider fees.

You got that right, oldman. Your Choomer in Chief and his Congressional cronies confiscate my taxes to support the military-industrial complex THEY appropriate and approve. The FACT that YOU are unable to realize YOUR own Party has controlled the Department of Defense budget for the last FIVE YEARS is hilarious. LOL

oldman, I can understand how you would be angry that all those American nukes deterred your Soviet brethren from bringing America into the Warsaw Pact. Better luck next time at conquering, subjugating, and destroying this nation, comrade.

Righties, to*****with making life better for American citizens; lets keep spending more on defense than the next 10 biggest spending nations combined and don't forget we have enough nuclear weapons to destroy the planet several times over. That was money well spent.

My insurance has already been playing the game of approving drs then removing from approved list for a couple years. Same with prescriptions. This is private insurance. For those of you that have not had this experience and the consequences of medications changes, it can be very frustrating and time consuming.

Not to worry, Hoopie, or was it Wonder, (different name, same fame) has the name of an insurance company that will sell health insurance covering pre-existing conditions at a savings over whatever you had before.

However, in true Progressive Compassion, that company will not be revealed at this time.

Right Hoopie.

A fascinating number in Wednesday's CBS poll is that only 7% of the American public want ObamaCare "kept in place." A full 93% either believe that changes are needed to the law (48%) or want a full repeal (43%). This pits President Obama and Democrat lawmakers -- who thus far have refused to make any meaningful changes -- against 93% of the American people and 72% of Democrats.

Moreover, only 12% of Democrats want ObamaCare "kept as is." Another 12% want it repealed.

If only 12% of Democrats want nothing changed with ObamaCare, there is no question that Democrat lawmakers and the president are defying their own base with this ongoing refusal to make any real changes to the law. Furthermore, they are blocking proposed changes, including changes proposed by fellow Democrats.

@BushCrimeFamily:Sounds like you don't care about abortion just like Obozo doesn't. Anyway you look at it, it is murder Corporate Servitude??? Get sick and die? People die everyday and will continue to pass on. Do you think a person should live forever? What would we do with all the people if they lived forever? Sounds like you are not very stable.

The dem desertions are beginning:

By Jim Galloway

U.S. Rep. John Barrow, D-Augusta, today became the first Democrat in the House to demand a suspension of the Affordable Care Act requiring individuals to purchase health insurance.

U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., endorsed a delay earlier this week.

Barrow's move shouldn't be that much of a surprise. Before the shutdown, he was for a continuing resolution that would have delayed the individual mandate.

During the Obamacare debates most people supported it or opposed it based on being eaten up with partisan politics. But some officials were putting out valid questions as to how it would work but rational people were not listening. It doesn't work and why would be expect it to work. What model of success does the Fed Gov have in running large issues? The military budgets, education, Congress,prisons, the post office? It doesn't work and we should not be surprised. But it was about political cultists yelling and not thinking. Example? Scroll down to the first comment made by someone called BushCRimeFamily and read that. Do ya think that guy was even thinking about health care or just magpie partisan politics and slogans? Its why gov doesn't work anymore.

Don't worry, when our/your Doctor opts out of Obamacare, thousands of non English speaking Doctors from all over the world will be brought into America to care for you.

Poor RancerousReputation can't keep track of the lies about the lies about the lies.

Yo homes, your Liemaster in Chief NOW wants the insurance companies to KEEP their alleged "junk" policies in effect now.

So does that NOW make them "wonderful" policies since his Highness, the high Lord Barackus of Obama hath decreed it???

Sorry, can't keep track of the lies without a program here.
