only 22% of uninsured Americans intend to buy insurance through the ObamaCare exchanges.
They were uninsured beforehand. Why would they want to spend money now?

re: More Bad Obamacare News


this thing will go down as a failure of EPIC proportions.

This may get so bad Obama could have a breakdown.

re: More Bad Obamacare News


Here is the deal...these people were getting health coverage for free (in a lot of cases)...why would they pay $300-1000 per month for something that would not even kick in until they meet their high deductible? Moreover, many did not have insurance because they could not afford it.

If Obama had dignity and care for the public, he would send an order to Reid to draft legislation to repeal it before it crashed the entire system.

He would have to give a shite.

If he does not work to repeal it, he should voluntarily step down from office IMO.

He does...in his little "apology" last night, he said "I got burned by the website"

A narcissist like him can only take so many blows to the ego before it is no longer able to rationalize the dissonance between his hubris and reality.

If it goes straight belly-up and his approval continues to flounder...he could break.

Is that even a remote possibility? I'm as anti-ACA as the next guy, but damn - there will be flurry of new signups in March to avoid the penalty (not to mention people just actually wanting insurance).

There are going to be so many lawsuits on this

Probably not.

I don't think there will be...it is one thing to sign up...another totally to continue to pay premiums...moreover, there are rumors that the penalty is going to be pushed back until after the midterms.

Wanting and being able to afford are two completely separate and, many times, mutually exclusive things.

That we can agree upon

THis is amazing. So 78% of the 15% (45/310 M) who were uninsured want nothing to do with this.

Meanwhile 17% (52/310) will be losing what coverage they did have.

Many of the remaining 68% face higher premiums, less raises bc of absorbed costs (my employer for example).

So basically, we blew up the entire system for what looks like 3% of the population. (10/310).



Let's not forget those who now work less, hire less overall, in addition to losing company sponsored health care bc of the 50 employee rule.

re: More Bad Obamacare News


I wonder if anyone polled these people BEFORE we did all this.

If they did, I bet the polls were "Do you want health insurance?" and the obvious answer was "Yes."

After that, they packed up their shite and went to Washington with the good news.

Around the time the big number I remember seeing was that roughly half of the 45 mill uninsured had access to it if they wanted. That was the rule of thumb used by the health care industry.

Why should thay pay money for something that they don't pay for now?

Does Obama really think the illegal Mexicans are going to sign up? Talk to one of them they will tell you as they have me they are not here for the long haul. They use the system to get 35K and go home and live like millionaires. Now that Obama gave them all large EIC tax refunds because they have 27 children. They went back to Mexico with no replacement to scam our system because they are hitting the jackpot.

If they need health care they use ER's. MEDAC"s if they have handy cash. Or they use the free health clinics Obama set up for them to get their vote.

This was either this BIGGEST legislative blunder in United States history, or the most devious, calculated attempt to destroy the system and assert government control in United States history. There is no other reasonable explanation. Obama, Pelosi and Reid should all resign if the former...if the later, I suppose in 50 years they will be hailed as heroes by the Communist Party of America.
