The most corrupt union in the USA is the congress, senate and governors included. They take your money. By force if needed. if you don't pay they take your property as well. They have great and wonder full health care that we pay the bill for. yet we struggle to get a decent plan that actually works with out robbing you. The worse part is we can't even say we don't want to be in the union anymore. So every time you here a politician say their goal is to get government out of your lives just remember. You are looking at a big fat LIAR!!!!!

It is just a TAX and an illegally passed one at that.

Unlike most Obama lies, THIS one is well known and hit the pocketbook of virtually every voter so the liars get their reward on 11/4/2014.

Predicting elections again. GOLD! LOL!!!!!!!

"get out your dictionary and look up "lie"."

According to the Washington Post Fact Checker Obama did just that! Again!

"Obama’s claim that 7 million got ‘access to health care for the first time’ because of his Medicaid expansion"

From the article, "that number is nowhere close to 7 million. It could be as low as 1.1 million (Avalere) or as high as 2.6 million (Gaba.) If one wanted to be generous, one could include people coming out of the woodwork, even though they would have been covered under the old law, but no one is really sure what that figure is. In any case, no matter how you slice it, it does not add up to 7 million. It is dismaying that given all of the attention to this issue, the president apparently does not realize that the administration’s data are woefully inadequate for boastful assertions of this type.

calrants, look up LIE OF THE YEAR in your favorite fact checker website, Politifact. They have your LIAR OF THE YEAR Barry "You Can Keep It, PERIOD" Obamboozler's picture there.

Now the Demorat Party thinks they can redefine the word "lie." Not surprised, since they've succeeded in redefining the words "free," "job," "arms, "tax," "choice," "up," "down," and "keep."

"lie" can be found in the progressive dictionary immediately following the word "it".

I guess we are all to cheer, as Progressives would have us all believe that the ACA is a done deal, and that the bureaucrats are acting in OUR best interests to once again save us from ourselves.

Why are more people NOT questioning the motives of lawmakesr that would exempt themselves from the very laws that they feel the citizenry needs.

Could it be that they have no idea what they are doing, that they know that it is a bad bill, or that they are so fatalistic that they do not want to enjoy the benefits that they are bestowing on their constitutes?

"The light's suddenly come on. People are signing up and liking it."

From the Kaiser January survey, "Among the uninsured – a key group for outreach under the law – unfavorable views now outnumber favorable views by roughly a 2-to-1 margin (47 percent versus 24 percent). This is a change from last month when 43 percent of the uninsured had an unfavorable view and 36 percent were favorable. More of those without coverage say the law has made the uninsured as a group worse off (39 percent) than better off (26 percent)."

So the unfavorable view of Obamacare has INCREASED among the target group!

It seems some posters prefer swallowing the kool aid of disillusionment rather than the bitter pill that is reality.

truthless "People are signing up and liking it."

More people - approaching 7 MILLION people now - are LOSING the health insurance they LIKED, thanks to Barry Obamboozler's LIE OF THE YEAR, and I can assure you they are NOT liking it.

But I'm glad your colonoscopy went smoothly. Did they happen to find your head for you?

Also should have been that Medicare paid 14% of the hospital bill. Sorry, it's Monday.

In the post below,that should be, "They just DON'T want the President to get the credit."

The light's suddenly come on. People are signing up and liking it. The formerly uninsurable are getting insurance. Here's a good example why it is important to have coverage: I recently had a procedure that good health management suggests be performed at least every 10 years beginning at age 50 unless family history shows it should be done more frequently. It could save your life. I'm on Medicare, you know, one of those awful government insurance programs. Got the EOB. Wheeling Hosp. billed for about 30 min. OR time almost $5000! 14%. That's what you'd pay if no insurance. Medicare approved $700 of it. I'm sure a private carrier would have greatly negotiated a significant reduction also. So available insurance is not so bad of an idea after all. Repubs are wrongheaded about this issue. They just want the President to get the credit.

The elected "leaders" point of view is not "if it ain't broke don't fix it." It is lets break it, so we can take credit for the fix. Don't matter none if the fix doesn't work. Ifin it don't work we just blame the other party, an we gets all the money.

How about work together and actually fix something instead of being negative. The tax paying citizens of this country deserve some kind of decent option for health care besides being robbed by the health insurance industry and employer provided. It's easy for politicians to say we don't need it because they aren't we and we are paying for theirs for life.
