Obama Care......Great, except for the exempt?

So, why do you suppose Congress and the president aren't signing up for Obama Care?  
By the way, have you tried to and found it easy or difficult, or?  Any stories to share?

By the way........the media's doing a darned good job of obfuscating from the truth that people are having a heck of a time getting into exchanges...  let's stop the bickering between parties and PAY ATTENTION TO HOW THIS IS NOT GOING TO WORK.   Let the product speak for itself, folks.

So what does a "federal government shutdown" REALLY mean?
The Military still works and social security checks will be on time. The Post office is still posting letters and the "intelligence" agencies will still be doing whatever it is that they do. They are going to close the parks and that's a shame but that seems to be the extent of it. They used to say "non essential" federal employees would be laid off but they use different terminology today because people were asking why they were hired in the first place if they aren't essential. Personally I think with the exceptions noted above the federal government should shut down for about four months every year and if it works well enough we can extend it to 6 months. Meanwhile the states can run the parks.

Although the asshats on the left will tell you differently, including the asshat above this post, It means that a few worthless federal employees will sit on their ass doing nothing at home, and draw a retroactive pay check; instead of sitting on their ass doing nothing at some bogus government agency.

Its like trimming the fat, except the fat comes right back... Yup. These Fed workers could disappear and no one would miss em.
AS for them getting payed?? They shouldn't get payed while furloughed. Who the hell pays people to sit home??
Oh wait. I forgot. It’s the Govt and they use our tax dollars to pay people to sit home and do nothing or sit in some Govt office doing nothing. If you’ve ever been to a VA office like I have, then you’ve seen that nobody does anything and that nothing goes on there anyway but a bunch of idiots wasting your time because they don’t know what the hell they are doing anyway... Just like at the Post Office.

The ACA law will work because it was written by Americans for Americans.

What kind of specious logic is THAT?

"Communism will work, because it was written by communists FOR communists!"

How long the impasse will continue is anyone’s guess, but the cause is the growing public concern over the Affordable Care Act otherwise known as Obamacare. It is so abundantly a disaster that the Democrats have decided to brazen their way toward its full implementation while the Republicans are reflecting the outcry from tens of thousands of telephone calls, email, and all other manner of communication.

In short, the Republicans are doing what is expected of politicians while the Democrats are expressing their contempt for the voters. It is the same contempt that led to the near-midnight, 2009 party line vote in the Senate that passed Obamacare. None of the Senators had read the huge bill that is filled with many new taxes and puts the government in charge of one sixth of the nation’s economy and, in effect, the entire healthcare system. Its impact is already being felt as large companies lay off more and more workers while smaller ones put them in a part-time status, reducing the number of hours with which they can earn a living.
“We had to pass it to find out what was in it,” said the then-Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. Significantly, no Republican in either the House or Senate voted for Obamacare.
The intransigence of Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV), the Majority Leader of the Senate, reflecting the same view as President Obama, is the reason why the shutdown has occurred. There is much more to this than just politics, though obviously both parties are rolling the dice as to the outcome of the 2014 midterm elections.
To their credit, I think the Republicans have the high ground!
Ultimately, it is the Tea Party movement that will get the credit for resisting Obamacare and it should surprise no one that the White House and Harry Reid keep calling them terrorists, anarchists, extortionists, and other names.

It will be interesting to watch President Obama say whatever he can, or whatever he has to. to affect the outcome of the shutdown. With nearly five years in office and with a thick volume of lies he told about Obamacare to get its passage, he is likely to suffer a significant injury to his power to influence events in the days and years ahead.

The shutdown is a good thing. Enjoy ...

I find it depressing to find that so many of our elected representatives display their ignorance on a daily basis. It is depressing to know that officials appointed to positions of great responsibility in our government see it only has an opportunity to impose some ideology or agenda that is disconnected from science or from any facts that support their machinations.
Let me say that I have long regarded Barack Obama as stupid. His incompetence manifests itself daily. He cannot speak without the assistance of a Tele-Prompter. He has zero experience with the way people make a living or run a business. He has zero experience regarding military affairs and appears to have no knowledge of history. His lack of knowledge about economics has left the nation with the highest debt and deficit in its history, and millions unemployed.

President Alinsky Threatens Americans once again!

Now we have a “You (Didn't) Shut That Government Down" Speech
Who the is Obama and or his leftist Socialist Cronies business, and none of the governments to judge who deserves their “OWN” wealth, and who doesn't?

If a person works hard and leaves a fortune for his descendants to use, its none of anyone else’s freaken business.
Tyrant Hussein Obama has no intention of allowing the US Congress to interfere with Obama’care, no matter what happens to the country’s economy

Obama will use his executive orders, and his military to “preserve, protect and defend” Obamacare in order to insure the complete financial destruction of The United States and thus fulfill his 1st Inaugural vow to “Fundamentally changing the United States of America! Typical liberal/progressive/communist tactics

The shutdown will cost $30 million a day, brought to you by the fiscally conservative teapublicans!
How soon you forgot how George Bush started two wars on the nation’s credit card and took a surplus from the Clinton administration and turned it into a mountain of debt. In addition, the great recession occurred under the Bush administration. Pres. Obama skillfully fought Republican obstructionism to get our economy back on the road to recovery – which includes jobs.
Obama has done an excellent job and any Democrat will do just as good or better, but only if we rid the Congress of the GOP and Tea Party members. You people who love the GOP and Tea Party are either rich, too old to know better, or are a little touched in the head and don’t know the difference. You all need to get on the American band wagon and support our President no matter which party is represented. One other thing, try and forget that Obama is black; he is a true American.

Just what does it mean to be "exempt"?
I means tat you have health insurance, probably through an employer, and the cot of that insurance is tax exempt.

Now, why would Congressional staffers want to surrender the same tax exemption for medical insurance premiums that most of you have?

When the right can finally see straight (I'm the eternal optimist) they will understand the issues here.
Medical insurers have a monopoly. They take a large portion of the health insurance dollar for doing NOTHING.
It will be tremendously difficult to dislodge them with friends like Diane Feinstein (D - Corporate pimp) and her Republican allies.

However, if the exchanges work then America might start on the path to less expensive single payer and the insurers won't like that.
The only people who can possibly support the American for profit health insurance disgrace are those who think Moses brought down a copy of "Atlas Shrugged" along with the tablets but they too can learn.

The shutdown will cost $30 million a day … or put another way, about the cost of one of the Obama family’s 4-annual vacations. Not sure how the math works with “shutting down government cost more money.” If I had my way, we would dismiss easily one-half of the government, retaining ONLY the enumerated powers as set forth in the US Constitution.

Robert Sinclair said...

It may be time to wonder why we have to pay for “non-essential” government services in the first place. What is more disturbing is the fact that the entire left side of our political equation thinks that this is just peachy. Groan.

Jack Whyte said...

Meanwhile, communist congressman Alan Grayson used the government shut down as an excuse to increase his net worth by soliciting campaign contributions on the evening of the shutdown. He tweeted, “We fight to win. Contribute $25 by tonight’s FEC deadline, and together we’ll keep winning.” His tweet featured an ad in which he called himself, “A Peace Champion.” One remembers that Alan Grayson, communist extraordinaire, once claimed that Republican health care consists of hoping that American die. He must have overlooked the Obama Care death panels, which appear to have been correctly identified by Sarah Palin.

Wait until people find out they have to pay something for obamacare, the riots will begin. Nothing makes the entitled madder than to ask them to pay for something. The next thing you know is they will be asked to get a job. Of course under the current administration the majority of jobs are part time.

The GOP has backed themselves into a corner trying to delay obamacare. Left alone it will implode under it's own weight. Maybe Putin will come to their aid and prevent them form being complete asses, he saved the incompetent incumbent so we know he can do it.

You can’t get anymore disgraceful than the vicious invectives that Mark Levin spews every day on hate radio. Citing his hard right Tea Party extremist cronies in Congress, Levin once again quoted the outrageous charges that the U.S. government had been “infiltrated” by the Muslim Brotherhood, then claimed President Obama was a Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer. Hopefully Obamacare covers verbal diarrhea, this pre existing condition exists with most Teapubs these days.

And thank you so much JonBerg for your lesson in political history. Would you like me to give you some undisputed facts about George W. Bush? I’d be more that happpy to if you’d like.

“A wise man can learn from another man’s experience; a fool cannot learn even from his own.”

The words of the Quran and teachings of our Prophet Muhammad guide us to a wealth of wisdom and knowledge
To the Republican Party that claims every life is precious, tell us how you justify denying hope to the adults and children whose last hope is with the NIH and these cancer trials. Tell us and them how you justify withdrawing their last chance at life, and why these living, breathing precious lives do not matter to the GOP.

And tell us why civilized people shouldn't look at the Republican Party as nothing more than a collection of mobsters using the pain and suffering of the American people to extract their ransome. And what would that ransome be? Delaying the implementation of a health care program that will enable Americans who do not have insurance to buy that insurance at state exchanges.

Crabby Old Man said...

Could that little pipsqueak Georgie Porgie, who has SO much to say please tell me where the current President has done such a great job, where do you live some other country? Where have you been for the past few months? He says that he inherited all of George Bush’s problems? Well he’s been saying that since the first day he came into office, but he made a promise to the American people to fix all those problems. We have the economy of a country in a depression, the alarming amount of part time employees should scare the crap out of everybody. He is as luxuriant at war as he is about everything else. – he has no problem sending other peoples children to die when he promised peace.
He promised transparency, he promised to keep us in the loop yet this administration has made just as many back room deals and behind the curtain decisions as any other administration and possibly more. He was against the Patriot Act and actually promised and even ran on a platform of repealing it, that changed. Not only that be he also quietly instituted policies that no one was even aware of. !

The only improvements to the job situation are part time and low pay jobs. The price of food, gas and electricity has skyrocketed under this administration and he has made more deals with special interest groups then any other administration, so please tell me how on earth he has done such a great job? After Bush I had hoped we would get better and since the man was quite a bit younger than most of his predecessors I had hoped that he would do great thing but we got more of the same! Some words explaining how he has done such a great job would help greatly and words that have nothing to do with race, political parties and other partisan crap.
Obamacare was PASSED BLINDLY! Even Pelosi said you will see whats in it once you pass it!
His administration is the administration of crooks, liars, tax cheats, inside traders using their power to broker deals for themselves and their friends in this industry or that. He has let that SOB Russian Putin shame us like we have never been shamed before!
Obama played Russian Roulette, and HE lost! American citizens suffer greatly like peons instead of the strong wealthy country that we once were. . Folks are tired of Obama, Pelosi, and Dingy Harry.
So tell me again why he is any better than the guy before him?

Obamacare is a terrible product, but since it is THE GOVERNMENT product, unlimited efforts will be expended to keep it alive. Indeed, the web site problems will soon be fixed, and the mechanical parts will soon become workable.

Well, it occurs to me that if 'they' can't refuse people with pre-existing conditions AND they can't charge those people any more, Why would I pay for insurance up front.

I'll just pay the fine, pay for the doctor checkups out of pocket, and if I get something serious, I'll go get my insurance and get fixed up, and cancel it when I'm back in the pink.

Another reason this is one POS bunch of nonsense.

This doesn't surprise me about him.

It sure doesn't stand for all of Congress, however...particularly those Republicans who've said they'd skip their salaries through the Shut down, etc.

One needn't be too bright to understand there's so much wrong with this bill and most Republicans have been 100% right in doing all they can to slow it down, to correct what needs correcting (much of which Dems agree with)..

but...we'll never really hear the truth; not with this media.

Oddly, it's the Conservative news venues that tell the truth; even against their own. We don't see that much from liberals, do we.

Dave, I wonder how you feel about the WWII memorial Obama's people spent money putting barricades around so the shut down would REALLY look bad :-)
Thankfully, the vets moved the barricades. The MLK, Jr. monument, too, was shut down...

Shutting them down was as ridiculous and obvious as Obama's ever been. Almost as ridiculous as closing the White House for affect.

Hey Georgie, take two Valiums and come back in the morning, you have been reading to many Progressive blogs.
You are defending a guy who got down on his hands and knees and kissed Vladimir Putin's ass while also giving away Americas secrets and vital interests at the same time. Remember when he told Dimitri, to "tell Vladimir to wait until after the election when I can be more flexible" who steadfastly refuses to negotiate with his fellow Americans over something most Americans resolutely do not want. Its no longer any secret whom Barack Obama considers his real enemy and its not the folks who conspire, plan, threaten or carry out acts to kill Americans and destroy their rights and property. For Americans today its like having Joe Stalin, Nikita Kruschev, Mao Tse Tung, Ho Chi Minh, Bashar Assad, Ayatollah Khomeini, Osama bin Laden, Ayman al Zawahiri, and Kim il Jong all rolled into one as president.

As for your reading the progressive blogs, have fun with that... But don't get to close, you might catch a disease.

Z, if Boehner would allow a straight vote, this would all be over. Those 40 or so Repubs that you mention are effectively defying the will of the American people who support a clean vote on the CR.

I've seen many times here a view that Obama is not respecting the will of the American people. But clearly on this case he is and the fact that Boehner will not even allow a vote shows that he knows his party will support a clean CR.

I've heard many times that conservatives have changed on Obamacare and only want to delay it so as to get it right and make sure the role out will be smooth...

Is that true? Do the "true conservatives" really want to do that, or is it just a tactic to eventually repeal the law?

We used to hear the phrase repeal and replace. I am not hearing that anymore. Do conservatives believe that insurance companies should be allowed to disinsure, or not cover people because of pre existing conditions?

I know that conservatives do not want people to die from lack of quality health care. Anybody who says otherwise is just wrong. I am just trying to understand what conservatives are proposing to put in place of a national health care plan.

I don't think saying get a job, as Sen Cruz did recently is the answer. I know many working people who simply do not make enough cash to afford to buy insurance at the prices we are seeing today.

As for the monument... I don;t really have an opinion on that as I've not watched many of the conservative, or liberal stories in support of their positions.

Z said...

Dave, you're so much smarter than that.
To suggest that Republicans don't want to work on some way of insuring people with preexisting conditions is beneath you.
Republicans didn't write the laws that said insurance companies didn't have to!

There are many things the R's want to fix, and , honestly, even my liberal friends are scared to death of what they're learning about this program.

Four years ago, my husband's doctor, VERY liberal, told my husband how wonderful Obama soon as Dr Kaplan learned a little about Obamacare, he told my husband the next time he came in "WHY did people VOTE FOR HIM?"
My husband couldn't resist.."Ask YOURSELF! I warned you"

no, please don't act like the R's just want to throw out good ideas with all the's just plain not TRUE.

Dave Miller said...

Z, I never said that... my question was whether the GOP believes government has a role in making, or forcing insurance companies to cover people with pre-existing conditions.

And if they don't, which I can accept as a legit philosophy supporting free markets, how then should we make sure people in those circumstances can in fact get reasonably priced coverage?

I'll turn the tables a little on you... certainly I'm a lib... but you should know I am not of the type that thinks all conservatives are bad any more than I believe all libs are wonderful.

Kid said...

Z, Absolutely right. The R's didn't break it. Frankly the Lawyers who are almost democrat to a man, broke the health care system. They've sued it out of existence.

Sure, there is fraud. Sure there is profiteering by doctors and hospitals. But the main problem with health care are the damage suit lawyers. Scum of the Earth. Hospitals don't charge 15 bucks for an aspirin for kicks. They do it because of the vampire lawyers who have sucked the system dry.

And isn't it Damn interesting that not a single politician has pointed that out? Ever.

When hospitals, drug companies and doctors have to shovel massive amounts of money into reserve funds in case they get sued by the vampires, We are where that money comes from.
