The last three poster show you are a lying sum*****, blunderedlie.

YOU are the one who claimed your daughter could NOT get insurance coverage in your pathetic little business.

Then YOU claimed OBAMACARE to the rescue for her.

Then you denied you had a daughter.

YOU are just a CLUST**** of BS and hypocrisy.

Wonder, I don't make my living by shipping with FedEx. You make your living by using nonunion contractors. Remember saying that you pay for employee "value". The "value" you cherish is using nonunion contractors so that you may reap a larger profit. Your own words convict you my liberal hypocrite.

wondercrite bashes companies that don't provide health insurance for their employees or pay them a "living" wage, and then wondercrite hires those companies to increase her own profits because they charge lower rates.

Even loony leftists like wondercrite become bottom-line capitalists when their own bottom line is on the line. LOL

Oh Blackhack- If you hire someone to paint your home, do you consider them an employee? Doo you offer to pay their health insurance as their employor? Keep throwing your obvious non informed comments! Maybe you could join a comedy team.

Blackhack- Since you have absolutely no idea what I do, you can make your lies all you want. Shows your lack of knowledge. When you want to send a package Fed Ex, do you pay their health insurance? What a clown you are! no wonderwhy!

Yes, Wonder, you do receive the financial benefit by using nonunion, low wage, no benefit contractors. Don't try to shirk your responsibility onto a contractor. You have every ability to employ contractors who pay well and give benefits to their employees. Does playing the shell game make you feel vindicated and upright? You are actually guilty and pitiful. Do the right thing, Wonder, walk as you talk.

Americans who embrace blind ideology support hard-luck hard-working low wage Americans paying for the health care of even lower wage hard-luck hard-working Americans.

Today's liberals can't even get re-distribution right!

Americans who embraced torture of non-Christian captured soldiers oppose hard-luck hard-working low wage Americans having affordable coverage because they love the Lord so much.

wonderlie "Oh blackrock. I use contractors, not employees."

Do you use only contractors that provide health insurance benefits and pay minimum wages? Or do you just choose whatever contractor costs YOU the least because you don't like paying the higher cost of contractors who offer higher wages and health care benefits?

Oh yeah, you're a hypocrite. LOL

"Democrats currently hold two-thirds of all elected positions in West Virginia. This includes control of both chambers of the legislature, eight out of eleven statewide offices and three-fifths of the congressional delegation. Governor Earl Ray Tomblin has one of the highest approval ratings of any governor in the country. Democrats hold a voter registration advantage of 54 to 29 percent over Republicans, one of only five states in the country with more than a 50 percent Democratic majority."

wonder meet reality! I don't believe you two have met before!

"ACA healthcare for all Americans"

So why haven't all 46 million rushed to sign up?

And why does the CBO state that even after 10 years there will still be 31 million uninsured?

Doesn't seem to work for them!

Truly not much to LOL about with this debacle!

Another benefit of the ACA is that it restricts insurance companies on how much they can spend on things like advertising! Obviously it's better that taxpayers pick up the ad bill!

From the NY Times, "From January until the end of March, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which runs the HealthCare.gov site and administers the Affordable Care Act, will have spent $52 million on paid media"

Your tax dollars hard at work!!

wonderlie "Of course tool would suggest that everyone has to work for a highly subsidized big corporation that provides health care to their workers."

Nowhere have I ever suggested that everyone has to work for a big corporation, subsidized or not. And all your Obamessiah's favorite corporations - GE, GM, Solyndra, Goldman Sachs... - are heavily taxpayer subsidized. So you're a liar and a hypocrite, as usual, wonderlie. LOL

Don't argue with Clueless about numbers. He personally counted those 6 million happy Obamascam beneficiaries himself. Right, Clueless? Or are you just parroting left-wing lies again? LOL

And that is good news for those 1.6 million, but not so good for those just above them on the income scale. From Unite Here, "The Associated Press headline for a new Brookings Institution study says that the ACA will have a “Big Impact on Income Gap.” People in the bottom two tenths of the income distribution would see average gains of 5.3% and 7.2% from the ACA. But take a close look at Brookings’ graph. Families in the next lowest 20% (family income $20,000 to $38,000) would suffer significant income declines to achieve these gains."

I'm sure all those families bringing in between $20-38k/year are just thrilled to shoulder the burden for those less fortunate.

6 MILLION + AND COUNTING ENROLLED

We get it clue!

4.38 million who lost their insurance due to the ACA

1.62 million who were previously uninsured

1.2 million who haven't paid their first premium

40 million still uninsured

Certainly numbers to be proud of!!!

wunder, So WV is a red state? Funny stuff! Last I read WV has been D controlled since 1932. Do some searching and see what party controls the STATE politics not the fact that "red neck" states did not vote for nomomma! Presidential elections do not result in color of the state politics....LOL
