    Did you expect all 48 million uninsured to get insured right away? How many GOP state's like Georgia have thrown up roadblocks to Medicaid Extension, even to prevent a possible new DEM governor from doing it? Should these 600,000 people in GA alone go uninsured, not to mention the loss of over 70,000 new jobs. You're a businessman--you know how many jobs would be created in Texas if ME was accepted .

    This is what GOP Sen. Barasso said on FOX yesterday, that the admin was cooking the books. Do you believe that? Where is your proof? Have you questioned previous GOP admins like this over numbers? Were the Dems a loyal opposition on Medicare Part D--yes or no ?

    Fox News will eventually post it once they figure out how to spin the 6 million number (difference between signups and paid enrollees, most likely).
    It is an impressive accomplishment considering how bad the enrollment went initially and how a lot of media reported on the problems. Oregon is still doing very poorly at signups and these numbers are highly suspect.

    But to me the bigger issue is why are we celebrating 6 million? We had 46.3 million uninsured in 2008 and that went up to 48.6 million in 2011. So, making the questionable assumptions that all of those 6 million were previously uninsured (and not people that were kicked off or cancelled their previous plan) and that all of the 6 million will actually pay, all year, for the insurance why do we celebrate STILL having 42.6 million uninsured and hardly better than 2008? And how much is this costing.

    Should be interesting. But I guess no one thinks that the ACA is some sort of universal health care anymore.

    Talk about spin.

    BTW, a lot of us would have been in favor of simply increasing the Medicaid limits and this turns out to be most of the increase.

    Bush isn't in office and has been out of office since January 21, 2009. Interesting how when you cannot respond to actual tough questions that you have to revert to Bush. Name for me one economic result that Obama has generated that is better than Bush's? You can't because BLS, BEA, and the Treasury data will not support you. Only leftwing rhetoric because that is what you want to believe. What is it about liberalism that creates people like you who ignore results and buy rhetoric?

    Facts confuse you. I understand.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    After three years and billions spent why are your standards so low? Roadblocks? You mean like States having to foot the bill for a Federal Mandate? You still think it is the Federal Govt's role to provide health insurance to individuals funded by those people who actually pay taxes? How did we ever get to this point? How easy it is for people like you to spend someone else's money as long as you believe it is spending in the name of compassion. How about some compassionate results and not a 17.3 trillion debt and rising?

    It is up to the people of Ga, not the Federal Govt. to handle insurance issues. You don't seem to understand the concept of Federal, state, and local responsibilities
