Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

35 days? They didn't even bother to do end to end testing jax. Come on, they had 2 1/2 years to get this done. This is ridiculous.

It's all the republican's fault, right?

They had an evil plot to convince the contractors to NOT FOLLOW BASIC PROCEDURES.

I swear, it just does not get any better than this.

And once again, thank a Republican Michigan did not set up an exchange. If they had, you would have 15 companies competing for Fact-Free instead of 2.

So,

Commerce clause.....NOPE, (it wasn't a tax before it was a tax).

It will only cost 900 billion.... Missed that by a cool trillion.

If you like your plan, you can keep your plan,,, wink wink

If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, (he or she just can't keep you).

We need to cover the 30 million people not covered today,,,, CBO says 20 million will still not have insurance.

Can anyone possibly believe that this is not some joke? It seems to me that the administration and democrats said anything, literally anything, it took to get the bill passed.

It will be worked out. It will take more than 35 days. Obviously you have never in your life implemented anything. In the Real World, implementations often are not smooth and take more than 35 days. That is what tells me you are shielded from the Real World, your naivte. Toot your own horn, unless you open the door we won't hear it from your living room.

"We have to pass it to see what's in it."

Isn't that the definition of a stool sample?

The Medicaid subsidy reduces to 90% by 2020 and stays there.

FACT FREE Strikes again!

Give it more than 35 days, loser. Republicans have obstructed since day one and it still is going to succeed. But that is your fear. Rooting against America is a loser's way to go.

Fast forward to the functional future of the website / data hub / heart and lungs of the beast.

There are increasing numbers of people signing up for ACA plans, they are getting "good deals" based upon the metric of "subsidies". Most of those people are going to be those that actually use their insurance, not the "young healthies" that are REQUIRED to sign up to make the whole mess support itself for a few years.

Imagine jax's horrified face when they say F-U and just pay the $95.00 per year fine and wait until they get sick to actually buy into the system. Hmmm. You really think that's going to happen Freeman? YYYUUUUUPPPP!!!! I have a crystal ball, remember.

jax - "Michigan was wise enough to allow the Medicaid expansion,.."

What happens when the federal "free money" stops in 2 years? Who is going to pay for the expansion in Michigan then? YUUUUUUUUPPPPPP!!! That would be you and me.

I can't believe how absolutely clueless you are.

jax - "Your view of the Real World from your living room is so far from reality you will never, ever be right about anything that takes place out here..."

There you go again talking out of your backside.

Where is "out here"? I've seen more "out here" than you will ever know jaxie. You're just mad that the republicans NAILED the flaws in this "legislative abortion" and the democrats missed them so completely.

FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE. Start analyzing the metrics on this one. Do yourself a favor.

Really jax? When was Social Security rolled out? It was a bipartisan legislative success that included all parties at the table.

Good grief, talking point, excuse, misstatement and misdirection.

The idea that because you identify problems with a policy means it's all or nothing is as infantile as you can get.

Pull your head out of your backside and consider the actual facts.

If young healthy citizens don't sign up, the system will crash. It will not take long, (it's already over twice what proponents said it would cost).

The policy is bad. The mechanisms are flawed and the implementation is a disaster.

Even the phone and paper mail in sign ups RELY on the data hub that they are trying to fix.

Good grief, good grief. Time to stop bailing the boat and start plugging the whole.

Free, if you were ever right about anything I would admit it. Your view of the Real World from your living room is so far from reality you will never, ever be right about anything that takes place out here.

Dumbbell Freeman, it has only been 35 days. I repeat it because it hasn't sunk in to you yet. Mostly Medicaid has signed up because that is mostly what the system is allowing to sign up. When the website is functional it will allow the non-Medicaid participants to sign up. Michigan was wise enough to allow the Medicaid expansion, most of the southern states passed on it and are leaving millions of their enemies, the poor, without insurance.

Republicans, after trying to destroy the economy with their shut down, call something the destroy the economy act? The irony is astounding.

Posted 302 days ago.

I know you guys, would have given up on Social Security after 35 days. Virtually nothing was in place when Medicare was expanded. You would have given it up after 35 days. You guys said FMLA would fail. You guys said ADA would fail. Your track record of predictions after the Romney fiasco is nil. Make it about me, deflection is all you have.

I mean, geesh, this just can't get any worse for the democrats and the country as a whole.

Hey geniuses, take a look at your auto policy some time. Evaluate the risk involved and ask yourself if government regulation regarding state monopolies in the health insurance market aren't the real problem.

You just can't go through life without thinking things through.

Almost feel sorry for you. (Not you amos, could care less).

jax - "It has been in place 35 days. There are already amendments being proposed. This is a field day for Chicken Littles, to be sure..."

Sen. Enzie identified the problem with the "grandfathered" plans in 2010 after HHS wrote the regulation and authored a bill to fix it. OOPS - wrong again jax-hole.

Now Sen. Mary Landrieau has magically identified the same problem 3 years later and is authoring a bill to fix it with, I might add, a couple of democratic co-sponsors.

Why don't you just admit that the republicans were spot on regarding the RUSH IT THROUGH ON CHRISTMAS EVE AND DESTROY THE U.S. ECONOMY ACT.

It's hilarious to see these people yabba-noba-dabba around the issues and resort to tired talking points to justify this mess.

Time to wake up, put your adult pants on and go back to the drawing board.

Posted 302 days ago.

You know, once again, the left is completely missing the point on this issue.

The model is broken, it has flaws that will not be fixable without stinging mandatory penalties for young people and drastically penalizing healthcare providers, eg. doctors and hospitals.

Posted 302 days ago.

Freeman

We are now helping millions, (no where near that number even signed up for Medicaid), to get the worst healthcare policy in the industrialized world. Medicaid is pitiful and many doctors and hospitals won't even accept medicaid patients.

Wow, out of the pan and into the fire. "Just calling it insurance doesn't mean it's insurance"

Posted 302 days ago.

Freeman

Jax better look at who is signing up for ACA, overwhelmingly Medicaid qualifiers.

Talk about sub-standard policies, jax, if you were to pay attention and speak from a basis grounded in fact, you'd "cipher" the problem we have here.

Of course you would never do that because you'd then have to admit that I was right from the beginning.

And, by the way, to all you "believers" that keep pushing the "phone access", you do understand that it relies on the same data hub that is "not working as well as [we'd] hoped".

Just quit defending the indefensible. Admit that the model was rushed, poorly thought out and implemented with the deft that only the federal government could muster.

Please, whining? Grow a pair jaxspeepee. <-Period
