    Obama's health promises backfire

    Health insurers will terminate coverage for up to 250,000 Pennsylvanians as Obamacare unfolds with a troubled website that has prevented many from enrolling in plans online, the state Insurance commissioner said.

    “It's a Kafkaesque nightmare,” said Michael Consedine, the state's chief insurance regulator.


    Such cancellations are occurring nationwide, despite “promises that were made” by President Obama that people could keep plans rather than change them, Consedine said.

    Obama's aides would not speak to the Trib with their names used for this story.


    “I'm hearing prices are going up, and benefits are going down,” said Loussedes of the national agents' group.

    Obama's aids would not speak with the Trib (because they wanted to ask some questions), instead the got an email titled "To Team Pravda" and the content goes like this:

    Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay...
    My, oh my what a wonderful day!
    It's the truth, it's actch'll
    Ev'rything is satisfactch'll
    Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay
    Wonderful feeling, wonderful day!

    when you have NO MORAL COMPASS.

    Liberals - Punish the Successful, Reward the Unsuccessful
    Liberals - Tax, Borrow, Spend, and Give Free Stuff
    Obama's legacy - President Donald Trump

    Yes, just like the GOP was eliminated in 2006. No, liberalism won't be going away. No, we won't be putting gays back in the closet. No, we won't be eliminating the min wage and having children back in factories working. No, we won't be taking blacks and women's right to vote away. Sorry, but liberalism is not going anywhere and neither is conservatism. BOTH are needed in various degrees for a successful society to exist.

    As much as I have seen and hated some liberal big government ideas (gun control, New York's insane bans, ACA), I have seen conservatives just as interested in using big government for THEIR needs as well. Morality control with the FCC, flag burning bans, and anti-gay marriage bans.

    A defeat for liberalism is putting Gays back in the closet, children back in factories, etc? It seems you aren't to aware of the political history of Black Rights either, or women's rights.National Federation of Republican Women

    If that's the left's lopsided idea idea of conservatism then maybe it explains their election of someone like Barrack Obama.

    And you are making the mistake of equating Repulbicans with Conservatives and Dems with Liberals. We are talking about liberalism and conservatism not parties. Both parties have switched ideologies before and no ONE party contains ALL conservatives or ALL liberals.
