Now quit bringing referenced facts into the argument, the GOP hates that! Just use sound bites, slogans, and unattributed anecdotes.
I noticed that your 'study' is one of future events, that haven't taken place, obviously: to quote....
By 2017, the estimated increase would be 62 percent for California, about 80 percent for Ohio, more than 20 percent for Florida and 67 percent for Maryland. Much of the reason for the higher claims costs is that sicker people are expected to join the pool, the report said.
The actual costs, the one's people can sign up for in 24 days, are lower. Dramatically lower.
Once people sign up, and the costs are indeed less, the GOP lie machine will have to change gears.
Without ignorance and paranoia, the Right has no case.
Isn't there enough worthless, polluted hot air in Texas already? You don't need to add to it.
This blurb leaves out an important fact: the Obamacare compliant plans cover far more than cheap, worthless plans, that take your money and cover basically nothing.
That's an important feature: level playing field coverage.
All greedy companies fear one thing above all else: competition. Obamacare delivers competition, level playing field, costs stated up front competition.
No wonder the GOP hates it so much!
the Lenovo S5000 has a 7in 1280x800 resolution display with "full HD [and] wide viewing angles", which comes powered by a quad-core 1.2GHz Mediatek processor and runs Google's Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean mobile operating system.
the Lenovo Vibe X boasts a 5in full HD 1920x1080 resolution display, along with a quad-core Mediatek chip clocked at 1,5GHz and 2GB of RAM. Android 4.2.2 comes preinstalled as standard, but an update to Android 4.3 is likely to follow.
Note: both of these products boast considerable processing power.
If you search for 'hp smartphone" you get a support link, almost a year old, for the IPAQ.
Of all the idiotic positions the GOP and the hick faction of their rag-tag coalition take, being against good healthcare for all takes the prize.
I understand that the billionaires of the drug makers, medical devices, healthcare gangsters have an interest in collecting money and not giving it out. Also, the 'libertarian' wing of the GOP, which basically is 'no taxes for rich people' wing won't like it either.
I just don't see how providing good preventive and incident care for all is going to destroy the nation. It hasn't destroyed Japan, Germany, France, England, Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Iceland.. on and on.
Why don't we increase funding for welfare and food stamp audits? I don't see cutting the programs off completely, just because there are cheaters.
I don't see Las Vegas closing casinos because someone is counting cards, and getting away with it.
We should also look, with equal vigor, at corporate welfare: oil subsidies, energy dept research to benefit coal, nuclear, military give-aways, make-work jobs for battle tank suppliers, hundreds of billions for jets and guns the Pentagon doesn't want.
I'm with you on this ending welfare cheats, 100%.
And the Dem candidate is Terry McAuliffe, who has more baggage than Madonna and Lady GaGa combined. Then again, the GOP governor of VA is about to be indicted for Federal Election Fraud, among others.
The candidate for the GOP Cuccinelli has made 'no more oral sex' as the corner stone of his campaign. Obviously an unpopular idea in VA.
Rasmussen recently fired, you guessed it, Rasmussen from his own company.
Good thoughts. Liberals don't want to provide 'an overabundance of welfare'. Liberals want programs for the less fortunate, unfortunate, and helpless in our society.
Let's start with adequate nurtrition for all, especially children.
You are stating a naive position, at best.
There is not a perfect elasticity in costs or prices. Sellers cannot simply raise prices and expect to get the same volume of sales. Anyone who's run a business knows this.
Perhaps if McDonalds raises it's price from $4.35 to $4.75, for a 'happy meal', people just won't buy as many, so McDonalds now ends up paying more in salaries, and taking in less in sales, clearly a loser all around.
Meanwhile at Joe's Burgers, they hold the line on prices, and pick up the McDonalds lost volume: a clear winner.
We're not going to settle this here. There is a gigantic wing of academic study: Marketing and Economics that people devote a lifetime to understanding.
The 'corporations pass cost increases and tax increases directly to customers, so what's the use' is a falsehood. It's spread, no doubt, by corporations.
Did you notice, that the House of Representatives is Republican? We can't pass a jobs bill unless the GOP votes for it.
They've been too busy repealing Obamacare to do even elementary economic action to boost the economy.
Just 14 more months and they're out!
Just one of the positive moves his Syria vote strategy delivers.
As I've said, this 'Congress votes on Syria plan' moves the blame for inaction to Congress, a GOP Congress. When 10,000 people die in Syria at the next attack, Obama can stand on a stage, with pictures and names of the GOP 'no' votes, and cross dissolve to a picture of the carnage, hold twenty seconds, cross dissolve back to the GOP. Repeating this for the entire 30 minutes speech. It will go down in history.
I am resigned to the fact that a large part of my role on this board is education:
Strong August auto sales numbers revealed a problem last month that Ford, GM and Chrysler once would have begged for — not enough cars to sell.
Automakers sold 1.5 million vehicles last month, a 17% gain over the same month a year ago and one of the best showings since 2007, before the Great Recession set in, according to Autodata Corp.

You're not making any sense. Ford, Chrysler, and GM are doing great business. Toyota, with lower volume, has higher growth, so what?
Dude, what's your problem?
Again, the point is having cheaters shouldn't negate the idea assistance to the needy.
The GOP constantly harps that because someone is stealing, we should stop all welfare.
So, abortion is murder, but murder is not murder, and should be allowed to go on. Not too smart.
If you haven't watched "Game Change" on HBO, you should. It shows how periliously close the US came to having a complete idiot, Sarah Palin, as Vice-President.
How true is the story of Game Change? Steve Schmidt, McCain's campaign manager said, in public: "Game Change is 100% accurate." The character of Steve Schmidt was featured in more than half the scenes in the movie.
