As long as the WH continues it's agenda towards socialism, we will experience growing poverty andRead More destruction of the middle class dream of home ownership. The problem is here to stay if democrats don't understand they need to change their attitude towards taking other peoples money. The President lies and is only interested in forcing his political agenda on U.S citizens. Before liar BO the most dangerous threat to America was Iran, now it's the WH.

How can you have a success with a program as badly designed, implemented & run as this debacleRead More is. No Privacy, No info security, double & triple premiums, triple & quadruple deductibles & far fewer participating providers is not an improvement. What ever happened to $2500 less & better coverage?
Dan Webster December 16, 2013 at 12:15 pm
My wife and I signed up for a new plan and not only got better coverage with same doctors, but we'reRead More also saving $650 a year in costs. Not everything starts off well, that doesn't mean they necessarily have to end badly though. I like our new coverage and don't want to go back to the plan we had before. Did you personally have the problems you speak of Dan?
Dan Pressler December 18, 2013 at 06:01 am
Mr Webster - yours is the ONLY positive story I have heard related to obamacare. Do you know ifRead More your plan is subsidized? Have there been any changes in your drug coverage? Hospital Access? how do your deductibles & co-pays compare to your old plan? It is not all about your premiums. I have insurance thru my company - i do not know how much the contribute - that i would like to keep because it is reasonably priced & covers what I need & want it to cover. I am afraid that when enrollment time for 2015 rolls around i will no longer have that option because my company will decide it is cheaper to pay a penalty for not providing any insurance that to risk paying the higher penalty for a desired, but non-Obamacare complaint, plan. There is much that could be done to improve insurance access with out 2700 (+/-) pages of legislation that almost no-one has read or 27,000 (+/-) pages of regulations that no-one can understand in their entirety because they are added to almost daily. Further parts of the law are unconstitutional (lack of religious exemption for persons & institutions of faith, etc). remember Obama said this was not a Tax yet the supreme court said it was constitutional ONLY because it was a tax

Remember child, sticks and stones. Oblunder lies…….period…… There is noRead More righteousness in lies no matter the agenda. Progressives didn't learn from their family. They bought into lies from the left, mostly from socialist teachers like Alinsky and Frank Davis. The other haters like Jesse, Barney Frank and Sharpton are self promoters with no ethics. Much like you. Liar…..period……...
Michael December 13, 2013 at 08:43 am
Looking in a mirror does not make you everyone. It's Friday 12/13/13 and Oblunder care is NOTRead More working. The whole administration is full of liars. Starting with BO and onto Reid, Pelosei and many more willing liars……….period…….. How many American lives does it take to implement your socialist agenda for control. "Limited Government" are not just words and the intent is to keep people in this administration from taking our rights. Rights that Ukrainians seem to be dying to have. BO wants this country to be impotent to protect it's citizens from foreign adventurers, that would take our rights in exchange for their terrorist control. BO lies and is responsible for what happens January 1, 2014. I hope it doesn't prove to be a very bad time for sick Americans. BO should be ashamed as well as all the people who have been lured by free bribes to compromise their integrity. Journalists are accomplices in this very dangerous power grab. This administration does not deserve our trust. (period).

Who is this lunatic that keeps posting these nonsensical posts that are not in context with thisRead More thread? Sounds like a obsessive demagogue and right wing nut-job with a lot of time and hate on his hands to me. Dude, after reading your threads, it sounds like you might need to get some mental health assistance.

HA! OMB, office of the President's. What makes anyone think what they say isn't a lie? Or at leastRead More twisted by POTUS. Their plan is to keep everyone in a constant state of turmoil and fear. How's that Obamacare working out for the majority? No need to reply, my eyes and ears don't lie to me.

You guy's like to ask questions. How about full disclosure from you BO bot loons. What SEIU thugRead More union hall do you work for? Hmmmmmm, like Oblunder's rational one sided progressive socialist hogwash discussion. You guy's lie just like your mentor Bashir or is it Zeke or BO? They all lie anyway. 12/9/13 and Oblunder care is still not running. What doctor can you have? You guy's trying out for the death panels? If you like your plan you can keep it. Pass it to see what's in it. Where's the budget wizards? You proud of BO's record of voting (present) lies and manipulation? Why can't you guy's admit you hate America. I'm sure you would feel better, if you just let it all out. Whacko's.............period............ Bliss your misquided adolescent minds and evil hearts.
Michael December 9, 2013 at 03:21 pm
Repeal and replace Oblunder care......................period..........
Ian G December 10, 2013 at 12:18 pm

Well Dan, you've certainly done the Dems proud! Forget the issues, just point fingers and callRead More names. Thank God for political masterminds and leaders like you.
Graham B November 2, 2013 at 02:42 pm
Also, I'm sure you don't realize how ridiculous it is to suggest The Daily Show as a viable sourceRead More for political fact. However, that does explain a lot.
Scooter Dave November 3, 2013 at 07:47 pm
The republican party, starting at the very top with their spokesman Sarah Palin, ridiculeRead More and deride the corporate media for having a political agenda hidden within the wrappings of legitamate news presentations. The Daily Show holds politicians and media up for mockery, often with self-deprecating humor, in a tone and tempo that only the young understand and sppreciate. You are free to mock those that use Stewart as a barometer, but you would do your own reputation well to do it quietly, unless your audience is old, white, and conservative.

An unexpected way to look at the ACA. My experience with private insurers was always as an employee,Read More where a FULL-TIME HR person investigated, negotiated, prepared, explained, monitored, and then throughout the year answered any questions about unusual circumstances. I'll say again, FULL-TIME person to manage health insurance.

It's great. The only people who don't understand that default will hurt all Americans are theRead More uneducated. The well educated congress understand this, but think that the public will blame the democrats.
Kevin Carney October 12, 2013 at 06:19 pm
This is a good step in the right direction. Now, here's something to think about. If we voted theseRead More senators and congress people into office. Why can't We fire them! They No longer serve a purpose. We need New, Intelligent thinking people. To take their places. They are All Millionaires. They have become, used to being where they are.
Kevin Carney October 12, 2013 at 06:23 pm
Mr. Schultz, Have you changed Your mind. On Supporting Our troops. I know you say, your companyRead More doesn't support the war. Not to many of us do. But, we Do support our Troops. How about you start sending some of that good STARBUCKS Coffee. To Our troops... 2013/12/10
Gary Moos October 11, 2013 at 10:13 am
The only two alternatives are default, or prioritized payments (partial default ). In both of theseRead More scenarios everyone takes a hit. And the markets will lose trillions. It could send a ripple effect around the world and credit will become too expensive for the average family. The housing market and American industry would grind to a halt. It is a lose, lose situation. If we lower spending to bring the debt under control it needs to be even handed. More is spent in corporate entitlements than on individuals and families.
humongus October 12, 2013 at 11:21 am
We need to take a measured balanced approach which reduces the deficit and debt through cuts andRead More increased revenues through cutting tax loopholes that allow companies like Verizon to make $40 billion a year in profit and pay no taxes. The current crybaby rethuglican philosophy of slashing and burning, like Sherman's cruel epic march to the sea, will have a devastating effect on our economy and cause a ripple effect globally. Where have all the adults gone in that party. Unfortunately, the teabaggers are in charge of the lunatic asylum and the facility is completely out of Thorazine. Stop playing games with the lives of real people and our country, you a-holes!
Pops Neyrey October 12, 2013 at 05:44 pm
Two things: Raise the debt limit only enough to pay existing bonds, tells investors we're seriousRead More about our bonds. Second, we lose $250 billion/yr. from fraud and waste, correct. Of course, Obamacare has to go.

Young waxed nostalgic about serving as a junior congressman on various committees with AbrahamRead More Lincoln.
