    Obama care is going to need enrollment in the tens of millions by Dec 15 or it will be a bust. more then half of those tens of millions will need to be young and healthy to keep the premiums where they are at, or the price will have to be raised even higher then they already are
    Surprise surprise... Guess those polls about the American people not wanting ACA were pretty accurate.

    I heard a doctor on the radio the other day giving options to a patient and when they found out they would actually have to pay a premium for ACA they said I'll just keep going to the ER....

    Frankly it is just as convincing as the enrollment numbers the Administration has released but it is quite premature to assess the Acts success/failure...time will tell.

    I like how the article references a supposed 260% increase in premiums. It does this by comparing the cheapest insurance that exists today to the cheapest insurance available on the exchange.

    If you're a conservative and don't understand why that's a ridiculous comparison to make, you don't know enough about the law to have such a strong opinion on it.

    That is not juvenile. Its constitutional.

    By the way, I am actually not Republican in leaning. But, whether we like it or not, we are going to have to cut government spending rather dramatically and the Affordable Care Act is set to increase spending. If that were not enough, we are on the brink of recession and changes of the size of this Act are disruptive on a scale, that could easily tip us into depression. I hope that does not happen. But waiting a few years would probably be a very good idea.

    You cannot vote by not voting and you cannot count votes that were never made because boehner is too chicken to have a vote because he knows he will be outvoted again. I love how you somehow got votes from no votes, that is a pretty good peice of logic perversion.

Shows BO's lack of experience in a real, read: business-like, world...the need to work out most the kinks or risk pissing off your potential clientele. Now, being the government [at least most of it, were it not for those pesky rep reps ], he does kinda have us bent over the proverbial barrel. Thank god the Republicans are showing even the tiniest bit of moxie, if the bumbler bumbles too much his namesake will stumble, tumble, fall out of favor, which it never really has properly achieved anyhow.


    You play the game to win for your side, fellow citizen. Our team, just like your team, uses any advantage, any strength it may have or may create legally. Its the way the game is played...and the way Dems are squeaking squawking and bleating--- shows its working.

    You got Obama willing to talk with hostile criminal regimes, regimes who have assisted in sending IEDs to kill fellow Americans, have potentially chem-warred its own citizens... yet won't negotiate with fellow Americans on what could plausibly be the biggest move he will ever have to make to keep this country safe and sound, at least fiscally/economically.

    I think the way that the prez has mishandled this can easily be characterized as being adolescent even, perhaps also tilting towards belief in his own cult of personality, this refusal to even negotiate, of denigrating the opposition, so risking it all, all or nothing, that reveals the self centered, egocentric policy decision-making pursued by this president. History will judge him the bad and the inept guy, the guy that tried to impose more government, much more government, upon a free people... doing so in this president's own inimitably maladroit manner.

    I hope it will be a story of how the system rose up to oppose this imposition, that the people still have a good bit of that original oomph in them to stay free and individual. An Andrew Jackson beating back of the National Bank kinda story.
    One problem, your side keeps losing when it goes to the public.

    Only because your side with its biased media does not tell the American public the truth. People, if they knew the truth, would want to kick his ineptness-in-chief in his big donkey...send him a-packing. He is by far the most worthless yet harmful politician I have witnessed in my lifetime. I thought Jimmy Carter was the bottom of the bucket...but look--- there is a hole in that bucket---- guess what dropped out?

    HealthSource RI spokeswoman Dara Chadwick told WPRI.com 2,089 people have created accounts on the agency's insurance-buying portal, and 366 of them successfully completed an application. Those 366 individuals either already paid or have a payment pending.


    HealthSource RI Obamacare sign-ups totals 366 on marketplace's first two days
    ...and that's just little ol' RI - kinda blows your single digit 'fact' out of the water.

    It's early yet for a victory dance. They have until Dec. 15th to get coverage for Jan. 1 and until the end of March during this open enrollment period.
