    Actually according to the news, until mid December this is just like getting your name on the list and a person won't be considered enrolled until the government receives their check which no one can start paying until that mid December date what ever it is. Even though your name maybe on the list, you are no officially enrolled until the government receives you money and that doesn't start until then.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Obama is no where near the liberal you think he is, which is pretty amusing concept to the rest of the world.
    That's for sure, if he was liberal he would have pushed for single payer health insurance (like Medicare for all) rather than depending on profit making insurance companies.

    When I first heard of ACA and it included a single payor option I was excited to be able to have an alternative to the expensive privatized insurance companies; and then they GOP lobbies killed that section of the bill suddenly I realized just how far away the US from an actual liberal country in terms of caring for its people.

    Oh, Obama IS a supporter of...and has pushed for...single payer health insurance. Here, watch this:




    Now...is Obama willing to not get single payer if it suits his agenda? Sure he is. The only reason he went along with Obamacare is because his own Party wasn't ready to move ahead with single payer.

    So, yes...Obama is a liberal.

    The GOP didn't kill it...they really had no say in the matter. It was Democrats who killed single payer.

    GOP did kill it, just because he has a D in his name doesn't make him not a conservative.

    Also, good quote.

    Oh...so you blame the GOP because a Democrat killed single payer. Isn't that kind of like saying it's all Obama's fault that the GOP keep trying to kill Obamacare?

    And, only 30 thosand people have been able to get their names on the list. There are 9 or 10 weeks to put 29 millionpeople's names on the list, or theyget smacked by the IRS.

    That too is being talked about.
