Bush was smart in leaving alone our nations healthcare policy where 85% of the nation had coverage and most were happy with their plans. Can you just imagine the hatred that would have been directed at W if he would have forced the exact same plan as BO down our throughts like the democrats and called it Bushcare, then lied about it for 3 years like BO. So far BO has gotten off easy with Obamacare just like everything else he has lied about.
"They are finding that a good many of the details, as they called them, and the glorious promised benefits of the plan are being found to be false."
Yep, the very things those on this MB of a more stable mindset warned them about all along.
Like the BP disaster BO played golf, waited around and did nothing while the environmental impact of BP became worse each day instead of reacting immediately and accepting the help that was offered. Then when BO finally decided to get around to seeing what could be done protect the US gulf coast it was too late to prevent the damage so BO began shouting who will pay for this when he could have prevented it. In the same way Republicans and the Tea Party tried to delay and change Obamacare before it became the disaster it is now. Millions of Americans will be harmed by Obamacare far more than harm caused by the BP incident and the harm will impact the health of Americans in a way that pales in comparison to BP. In the same spirit of the BO shake down BP, Americans need to demand damages for this awful plan called Obamacare that threatens the health and financial well being of all Americans. this awful plan called Obamacare that threatens the health and financial well being of all Americans.
that is what HHS head Sebelius has to say when being pressed but Republicans to enroll in Obamacare during yesterday's testimony. She tried to claim she was not eligible and after it was shown it she was eligible she wanted not part of it instead she said "don't do this to me". She knows how bad the plan is and wants nothing to do with it just like BO.
There is nothing wrong with profit taking that is how investors make money, sorry you missed out
For many months we have put up with the Obamacare Pumpers on this MB who have told us over and over again how great Obamacare is, yet not a single one of them has any intention of signing up for it through the exchanges. They have joined the leaders of this disaster Obama and HHS Sebelius by siding with the Tea Party and not having anything to do with this awful healthcare plan.
Have you signed up for Obamacare or are you siding with the tea party and Republicans by choosing not to participate?
What is funny is none of you BO pumpers want no part of Obamacare instead you choose to stand with Ted Cruz, the Tea Party and Republicans and turn your back on BOs flagship program
So are you admitting the system we had was much better than Obamacare and therefore you are choosing not to participate? What is up with all you Obamacare pumpers, you elected BO for Obamacare now that it is here you want no part of it , what hypocrites
You didn't answer the question, I fully expect Obamacare supporters like you to embrace the program and enroll through the exchanges. Have you enrolled yet? If not when do you plan to enroll?
How many millions did Obama pay his supposed tech savvy cronies to develop this debacle? What an embarrassment
Please don't tell me you have given up on the non-functioning Obamacare sign up process. I expect you idiots to spend all your time trying to sign up for the worst roll out of a product in the history of mankind. We all know who is responsible for this disaster since it is named after him.
Come on older folks need your money to pay for their medical costs. You don't want to get fined do you for not having insurance even though you still won't have any under Obamacare you just get to pay a premium every month.
Hello, I know you morons must be chomping at the bit to get in on that Bronze plan where you can pay a monthly premium and get nothing for it. You still pay out of pocket for your care.
You idiots tout Obamacare at every opportunity have you signed up yet? Or are you like BO who thinks everyone except his own people should have it.
"From another board, this was posted in 2009"
BS what MB keep their posts for 4 years, and who would wade through 4yrs of post to find this, what a bunch of #$%$. So a financial analysts cancels his insurance after retiring and now has no insurance at a point in his life when he is most likely to need it., yeah right. You liberals are so gullible you will believe anything Obama or the liberal press tells you.
"Over the last 10 years, the average health care premium has increased four times faster than wage growth and three times faster than inflation."
Welcome to Obamacare. Huge increases came after Obamacare was implemented and had the greatest influence on the 10 year average. More increases on the way. Since you canceled your policy you need to enroll in Obamacare or be fined. Please keep us updated on your Obamacare policy compared to your old policy be honest about your out of pocket expenses (premiums and deductibles). Not a single republican voted for Obamacare the pain you feel is totally because of democrats
Congress is made up of the Senate and the house of representatives so a 5% approval for congress is not surprising since it is controlled by mostly democrats.
Most Americans disapprove of the way Obama is handling his job, latest polls show only 37 percent of Americans approve of the job he doing. His approval rating is much lower than W's was at this point in his presidency.
