    Six million people signing up will make it more difficult for Republicans to repeal ACA.

    On this forum, most of your conservative lean doesn't appreciate that, though some will like it, saying very little for them.

    You don't get to use Goebbels and Obama, then try to squirm away saying I'm calling you 3rd grade names when that is exactly what you did.
    I will call you out every time you play the NAZI card, as I've done .
    And you'll be wrong every time.

    I watched the first 51 minutes of Morning Joe on MSNBC this morning. They covered:

    Chris Christie
    Jeb Bush
    Justin Bieber and breakfast menus
    An open letter to Gwyneth Paltrow in the NY Post
    Congressman Mike Rogers (R-MI) announcment that he won't run for re-election
    Eva Longorio being on the cover of this weekend's Parade Magazine
    Basketball playoffs
    Snow in the mountains of New England

    And other important stories. And except for 2 mentions by Mika (bouncing out of her chair) that 6 million have signed up, nothing else. In the first 51 minutes of the show, no coverage.

    Hmmm......sorry, Top Cat, but even your leaders at MSNBC don't find this noteworthy.

    Interesting. Obama's biggest media cheerleaders didn't make this their headline story. Eva Longorio is more important?

    Well, they finally devoted a whopping 60 seconds to the story at the 1 hour 6 minute mark! They had a panel of 5 on, including Chris Matthews, who was the only one who talked about it with Joe & Mika. And what was Matthews' take on it? I'm paraphrasing here because I didn't write down his exact words but you can see them on video later I'm sure.

    He said the problem is that the ACA was aimed at the "working poor" who he described as people with jobs who take the bus to work but can't afford to buy insurance. He said the "non-working poor" weren't the target of the ACA and their inclusion isn't going to be the basis for success. He went on to say that the "working poor" should be front & center, jumping up & down cheering about how great the ACA is and how it helped them - and they aren't.

    Even Chris Matthews knows what a joke this story is.

    Why exactly is that? How about a breakdown of those 6 million and how many exactly has paid the premium? How many are people who were dropped from their insurance, how many were eligible for Medicaid even before Obamacare, how many actually paid anything? With the claim of 40 million uninsured, do you really think this is stellar information?

    Funny enough, I wasn't asking either of you, so you responding to my question without the knowledge of why I asked was a waste of both of our times. Good job.

    But thank you for proving what I suspected, which is there are some people who will ALWAYS put the program down because it was a Democrat who passed it, no matter whether it is incredibly successful or not.

    Wrong, we put the program down because it is a failure, poorly created and poorly implemented. It isn't the role of the Federal Govt. to provide personal responsibility issues, that is the role of the state and local communities. How anyone can call 6 million a success is beyond comprehension and nothing more than partisan bs. There were a reported 40 million uninsured and the number enrolled is 6 million yet no one knows the make up of those 6 million. That indicate a success to you?
