    Another Missed Deadline Ahead For Obamacare

    more delays, more failures, more broken promises

    the biggie was april 1 when the white house announced that it must put off for a year the establishment of market-oriented health care exchanges for small business, thus confining those put upon enterprises to a choice of exactly one product

    ObamaCare in Trouble? Exchange provision delayed, as lawmakers push to repeal another | Fox News

    Obamacare Incompetence | TIME.com

    did you know that the obamacare exchanges for individual buyers are prescribed by law to be up and running october 1?

    they're not even moving on em

    it's certainly not politic to talk about em, it's certainly not wise to be seen implementing em

    these and many more are the worries and woes so many distinguished dems are distressing over in public these days

    the very author of obamacare, retiring chair of senate finance max baucus, calls the rollout not a train wreck but a HUGE train wreck

    the chair of his subcommittee on health, also retiring, uber lib jay rockefeller, calls the bill "beyond comprehension"

    nyt did a story last week---"dem senators worry"

    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/26/us...out.html?_r=1&

    ben cardin from maryland, the bluest demographics outside the northeast, is scared cuz carefirst (which covers 70% of terrapins) announced a 25% premium hike the day before

    maryland is especially bellwether cuz it's one of the few states fully in cooperation with obamacare

    jean shaheen up north agitates for those small business denied their much promised shop, also the fact that employers around her state are cutting hours to less than 30 per week to avoid the mandates

    tom harkin (retiring, IA), chair of powerful appropriations' subcommittee on health, says he is "beyond upset" that the white house would raid public health and prevention to pay for education and outreach, he's even put a hold on obama's nominee at m&m services, marilyn tavener

    last nite in south carolina, the sister of comedian steven colbert, elizabeth colbert busch, in a debate with former governor sanford (they're running in a special election for SC1 to replace tim scott) called obamacare "extremely problematic"

    Democrats fret over Obamacare as 2014 looms - POLITICO

    not just problematic but extremely problematic

    exactly why would she and the ny times and obamacare author max baucus say such things?

    are they lying to you?

    kaiser today published a poll---obamacare is at an all time low, just 35% favorable

    do you wonder why?

    at his i-have-a-pulse press conference today, to celebrate his 100 days, obama conceded certain "glitches and bumps" in implementation

    just bumps in the road---like benghazi

    dems demand he get out and sell---he says he'll do it in the summer

    what do you think is the real reason he's not talking about it today?

    in march 79 senators voted to kill one of the law's central taxes

    Senate passes bill to repeal medical device tax - Boston.com

    and why do congressmen and women want out?

    Lawmakers, aides may get Obamacare exemption - POLITICO

    bumps in the road or huge train wreck?

    today, another deadline deferred:

    Under President Obama’s 2010 health law, the government officials in charge of keeping Medicaid afloat have until Tuesday to report whether costs for the fiscally foundering program will exceed expectations.

    But they won’t have anywhere to send their report.

    That’s because the Independent Payment Advisory Board – perhaps the most controversial entity created under Obama’s law – still doesn’t exist.

    This 15-member board, denounced by critics as a “death panel,” is tasked under the law with determining which patients ought to receive which treatments and whether taxes ought to be raised to finance the program.

    can you imagine senate confirmation of even one of the 15 members of ipab?

    Baucus authored the damn bill, and now offers up criticism on its implementation.

    What a jack ass.

    It was never implementable, and was always going to do far more destruction than good.

    just ditch it and give us UHC. that's what's going to happen eventually anyway. let's just skip the slow failure and try something that might actually work.

    Re: Another Missed Deadline Ahead For Obamacare

    This "law" is doing exactly what it was designed to do... screw things up so bad that the public will demand that politicians solve the problem.

    Of course, we already know what the "solution" to the problem will be. Single payer. By the way things are scheduled to be implemented, I'm guessing that by the summer of 2014 the pressure will start ratcheting up for the government to do "something" to fix things and since single payer is already primed and waiting, the go ahead to launch it will happen sometime in early 2015. At this point it is the easiest "fix". It's basically that or a repeal of Obamacare and I hate to break it to you but Obamacare ain't getting repealed. That boat sailed the day John Roberts decided that it was a tax and basically came right out and said that the American people could decide for themselves what the fate of Obamacare would be during the 2012 election. Guess what? The people chose.

    Right or wrong this is where we're headed.

    that's my opinion. the PPACA will bring out the worst in insurance companies. they'll sell cut rate safe auto-type policies that don't really cover anything, and employers will start balking at providing coverage. eventually we'll tire of being the only first world country in which it's possible to go bankrupt just because you got sick. medicare for all will start looking a lot better at that point.

    Instant UHC for 350 million people plus illegals when wer'e currently having to borrow money from our own Central Bank to pay for a current rising dependent class ?

    It would be the nail in the coffin of a economy that currently is on life support BECAUSE of ObamaCare and the tax increases and mandates within.

    I would venture that our economy would devolve down into some central american banana republic underground type of affair.

    Tijuana on steroids.

    This Countries gone to hell in a handbasket under Obama.
