The good news is piling up like chord wood:
[The young Americans the Obama administration so desperately needs to help make the Affordable Care Act function are the ones most likely to believe the law is endangered, suggesting that sustained House Republican efforts to repeal and undermine the law are bearing some fruit.
More than half of 18-to-29-year-olds who were surveyed in the most recent United Technologies/National Journal Congressional Connection Poll say it is likely the law will be repealed in 2014, even though the chances of that actually occurring are remote.
According to the poll, 18 percent of respondents in this age group said it was "very likely" Obamacare would be repealed by Congress next year, while 33 percent said it was "somewhat likely" the law would be done away with. The survey has an overall margin of error of plus or minus 3.6 percentage points.
That has real-world implications. The administration has relentlessly wooed these so-called young invincibles—young, healthy Americans—to sign up to purchase health insurance through online exchanges. Those consumers, who tend to use health care services less frequently, are needed to subsidize the cost of treating older, sicker ones. Without their participation in large numbers (the target for next year is 40 percent of all new enrollees), premium rates for consumers in the exchanges could rise.
The poll results also jibe with a survey released this week by the Harvard Institute of Politics which found that fewer than 30 percent of young Americans age 18-29 would or probably would sign up for health insurance and fewer than 40 percent of those surveyed approve of the law.
It also revealed widespread pessimism among African-Americans about the law's future. A staggering 70 percent of those surveyed (in all age groups) believe it is "somewhat likely" or "very likely" the law will be repealed next year.]
Me sooooo happy! Pilo happy?
LOL! Dimwit can't comprehend the notion that companies and individuals purchase insurance with an understanding of what it covered! And that insurance companies compete for business!
Hey Jimmy, you're real smart. Did you USE TO BE an executive? Are you still? If not, wht not? Does it have anything to do with posting nonsense on the MO board and not working all the live long day? Hmmm?
YUCK, YUCK, YUCK.
Me: ["Hey Jimmy, you stupid sh1t, do you deny that Obamacare will have an unelected panel to determine care/coverage in the exchanges?"]
Mental Case: [Boeidiot thinks everyone in the executive part of the government should be elected.]
While that is an interesting diversion from the discussion, I still don't want some appointed Democrat hack deciding what medical procedures will be covered. I actually would rather have an insurance company that has to compete for business decide.
Do you understand the point now stupid? OBTW, did you get your subsidized policy yet? Hmmmm, loser?
You are correct - he is hiding. If you answered his question correctly, then that does not allow him to declare "victory" cleanly. He has an almost infantile need to feel he "wins" all discussions. His fragile sheltered (from the real work world) ego won't allow for anything less. Anything less would reveal the reality - he is a loser message board troll. When he declares victory, he assumes the mantle of "bored scientist toying with rodents". Pretty sad really.
Of course his lot in life is still better than Pilo. Pilo is actually unable to recognize that he loses virtually all arguments he has here and is always wrong on the facts or lacking a point. He is really that stupid.
As an aside, it is not a good idea to engage in question/answer with Vermin. He will NEVER actually admit it when you get it right, and will declare "victory" anyways (as he will in response to this post). Therefore, there really is no point.
He really should go out and get a job. But I wouldn't hold my breath. He doesn't seem to play well with others.
Hey Jimmy, you stupid sh1t, do you deny that Obamacare will have an unelected panel to determine care/coverage in the exchanges? Is it possible they may decide that some types of treatment are not cost effective?
Hmmm little itsy bitsy Jimmy? Do you get cherry kool-aid if you deny the panels exist?
[this is where the frantic, panicked Jimmy will scream the insurance companies already do that - as if that diversion answers the question; note that Jimmy probably believes the lying liar's tale that the insurance companies denied his white commie mother's treatment on her death bed - a proven LIE that the n***** repeated over and over in his campaigns. Of course his verifiable LIE was not pointed out by the MSM. The MSM that Vermin has pointed out is against Democrats!]
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police are looking into another possible “knockout game” attack against a Hasidic Jewish man in Williamsburg on Sunday night.
As WCBS 880′s Jim Smith reported, police said a 26-year-old man was punched by a woman just before 11 p.m. at Bedford Avenue and Taylor Street.
New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind said a pattern has emerged but stopped short of saying the Jewish community is being targeted in these types of attacks.
“It seems clear that overwhelmingly here in New York the victims have been Jewish, there’s no question about that,” Hikind told Smith. “You have New Yorkers who are afraid to walk the streets, afraid to let their kids walk the in streets because you don’t know who the next victim is going to be.”
It thrills me when roving bands of feral Democrats are punching other Democrats in the face trying to knock them out. This, as the Democrat media denies it is happening.
You know, the Democrat media that stupid Vermin says is "conservative" and favors the GOP? Hey Vermin, have any trips up to visit Rhena scheduled? Perhaps they can knock some sense into that thick noggin of yours.
Agents associated with the National Association of Health Underwriters were contacted in 16 cites across the country.
The agents were all certified by state insurance regulators to sell health insurance policies within and without the Obamacare exchanges.
Their responses provide an alarming picture of the profound changes Obamacare is forcing on patients and health care providers.
In parts of California, for example, low reimbursement rates have resulted in a doctor rebellion, as nearly seven out of 10 doctors refuse to participate in the exchanges.
San Diego broker Neil Crosby told the Examiner that "65 to 70 percent of the providers have declined the reimbursement schedules the carriers are offering. They will not be providers in the exchange marketplace.”
Similarly, agent David Fear in Sacramento said, "Roughly a third of the doctors are going to be accepted in the networks. I’m finding very few specialists in either the Anthem or Blue Shield networks.”
Larry Harrison, an agent in Las Vegas, said the “lion’s share” of doctors there are staying away from the exchanges.
On the other side of the country, broker Carol Taylor of Roanoke, Va., estimated that participating doctor networks there are shrinking by 70 percent in the exchange plans.
Meanwhile, nationally known health insurance providers like United Healthcare, Aetna, Cigna and Coventry are staying out of the Obamacare exchange marketplaces.
I agree with the gargoyle Wasserman-Schultz; Democrats should run on this law. It really is just a perception problem where the media hasn't covered the good news stories. Right stupid?
Editors note: stupid, in this case could be Gerard, Jimmy, or carci.
I am fascinated by people who are stupid but think they are smart.
I also think your website would make a good bit for a comedy show like "The Colbert Report", or the "Daily Show".
It is so stupid, it is very funny!
[Ohio has fully embraced Obamacare]
Yes, the 35% approval of GSNC in Ohio is proof. You are without a doubt, the most brilliant senile old man ever.
President Obama’s poll numbers are at record lows. The health care law that serves as the cornerstone of his domestic policy legacy is even more unpopular. And there are few chances to change the conversation among a skeptical public that isn’t happy with Washington.
Sound familiar? It should: The national political climate today is starting to resemble 2010, when Republicans won control of the House of Representatives by riding a wave of voter anger.
Historically, Democrats have held an advantage of at least a few points on the generic ballot, even when election results are a wash: Democrats held a six-point edge just before Election Day 2000 and picked up a grand total of one seat. Democrats led Republicans by one point on the generic ballot just before the 2010 elections, when Republicans rode to a sweeping victory.
And there’s no sign that Obama will become more popular. Presidents who see their approval ratings dip so dramatically in the second term rarely see their numbers improve. Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon’s approval ratings never recovered after the Vietnam War and the Watergate scandal (Nixon, of course, didn’t stick around to see just how far his ratings could fall). George W. Bush’s approval rating sank in the spring of 2005, and continued falling through the end of his term. Obama’s numbers are starting to resemble Bush’s trend lines.
For much of Obama’s tenure, even voters who say they disapproved of his job performance still retained a favorable impression of the president. That’s increasingly not the case: In the latest Washington Post/ABC News survey, conducted earlier this month, Obama’s unfavorable rating, 52 percent, tops his favorable rating, 46 percent. It’s only the second time the number of unfavorable impressions outweighed the favorable ones.
The GOP is currently up 2 points generic congressional poll.
The botched rollout of Barack Obama's signature health care law continues to take a political toll on the president. The latest evidence is a Quinnipiac University survey released Wednesday morning showing the president's approval rating hitting a record low of 34 percent in Ohio. Obama's disapproval rating has jumped to an all-time high of 61 percent. This represents a significant decline from Quinnipiac's last poll in Ohio on June 26, when Obama recorded a 40 percent approval rating and a 57 percent disapproval rating.
The president's personal credibility has also taken a serious hit, thanks to his broken pledge that Americans would be able to keep their health care plans. Only 39 percent of Ohioans now believe the president is "honest and trustworthy," a new low, while 57 percent believe he is not "honest and trustworthy," a new high.
The law itself has also suffered in the eyes of the public. Only 35 percent of Ohioans currently support Obamacare, while 59 percent are opposed.
And the bumpy rollout of Obamacare appears to have shaken the public's faith in the government's ability to manage and deliver health care services. Only 16 percent of those surveyed expressed the belief that the quality of health care they would receive one year from now would be better because of Obamacare.
At risk of being repetitive: ME SO HAPPY.
BTW Vermin, you get your GSNC yet?
Can you tell me why, with a law so helpful to the American public, that the president continues to delay it's implementation, lie about it features, hide information on it's enrollment, and prevent the public from transparently understanding it's true cost?
March lemmings! March on to the utopia of GSNC! We shall NEVER turn back! Soon we can stop for a drink, but not until after we vanquish the evil GOP in the mid-terms! Then we can all drink deeply the delicious Kool-Aid!
Obama's woes are not limited to honesty and his managerial skills. Fifty-six percent say he is not a person they admire, and an equal number say he does not agree with them on important issues. Fifty-six percent also say he does not inspire confidence, and 53% don't view him as a strong and decisive leader. All of those figures are all-time records for Obama in CNN polling.
The mental giants, like Vermin, who predict a comeback for the foul mouthed race baiter might have it a bit wrong. See, the difference this time is that before when his job performance numbers fell, his personal approval numbers were still high. Now, people are onto him - they hate him, as they should.
Me so happy!
Washington (CNN) - Only four out of 10 Americans believe President Barack Obama can manage the federal government effectively, according to a new national poll.
And a CNN/ORC International survey released Monday morning also indicates that 53% of Americans now believe that Obama is not honest and trustworthy, the first time that a clear majority in CNN polling has felt that way.
LOL, things are going very well for the party of government!
P.S. Idiot, most here actually WATCHED the video I posted of the F-35 vertical landing on the aircraft carrier, so all you are doing is embarrassing yourself champ. Since I can't post links anymore, just search it, you can find it.
It is pretty much a sure thing now that you are totally senile if you don't recall my posting that link. After all, it WAS VERY EMBARASSING FOR YOU.
P.P.S. Idiot, the F-35 will be eligible to enter combat service soon. The flight testing has gone well. Too bad for haters like you.
Question for STUPID Gerard:
Would the Democrats have done this if they thought they were going to retain control of the senate?
This idiot is not even able to see what this means. It means they have given up on 2014! And of course the stupid Democrats think stacking the DC appeals court will allow them to legislate by executive order. As if the SCOTUS doesn't exist! LOL!
They really are THAT stupid.
Like the latest delay in GSNC to "after the elction". As if the premium hikes for 2015 aren't going to get leaked as soon as the 2014 exchange demographics are known!
I'm giddy over their stupid desperation. It is actually comical!
Jimmy is absolutely melting down over the current news headlines.
Is something in the news bothering you Jimmy?
Do you think it will work when GSNC collapses and the same clowns who authored it claim they know how to fix it?
So Jimmy, are you a big GSNC (ACA) fan?
Do you think it has been a brilliant stroke of "good government"? From the party that claims to be good at government?
If 52% say you are not "honest and trustworthy", is that good?
Do the Democrats have a "permanent majority of minorities", when 70% of voters are white?
Hmmm? Pilo, you out there?
Are the Dimwits going to win back the House "guaranteed!!!!"?
P.S. If you have some "minor difficulties" with the glorious website, you can call the help line and get help from the highly qualified former ACORN employees manning the phones. They are technical supernovas.
Trust us, they are.
The Democrat Party.
