    Heya Dan. Yeah but 6 million losing their coverage is a fact too.

    What do you call a program that is costing 2-3 times more than what was originally intended that breaks down, but isn't a failure or a success?

    After you buy a car and find that it keeps breaking down and costing you more money than what you can afford to put into it? Do you keep that car or do you buy a new one or find an alternative? In the end.....the result would be you got rid of what wasn't working, Right?

    Sorry, we get to characterize what a sign up actually is. Especially when the WH refuses to provide any relevant information that would qualify 6 million sign ups as Good or bad.

    And honestly, the fact that they refuse to provide any additional context doesn't look good for the Democrats. They're being vague NOT because they have positive data to add. They're being vague because any additional information would only further reinforce the Conservatives assertions that this law is a disaster.

    It's not hackish NOT to take the Presidents word for everything. Especially when you consider his track record when it comes to....well telling the truth.

    Being a Partisan Hack is starting a thread celebrating 6 million sign ups without any additional information. Sorry, people that typically oppose Obama's policies don't generally buy into platitudes.

    So...its idiotic to trumpet this as either a success OR failure. Got it...and I agree.

    Now...the fact that even if ALL paid for it, only 6 million actually enrolled in it...well...thats another embarrassing story altogether.

    It's far from over. If it for some reason works out halfway, after the Republicans have called it the "end of the world", they'll look foolish.

    All they have to do is remind everyone 1) The Obama lie 2) Supposed ACA saving money (another lie) 3.) ACA creating jobs (not happening) 4.) 48 million uninsured 5.) A fatal financial flaw in the law itself, and it will cost taxpayers or insured much more than they thought.

    Lastly, but certainly not least --- it's the Federal Government. Even if everything went 100% smooth there's still a 95% chance of failure because the Fed Gov has a horrid track record on running sweeping large programs. Sooner or later, it gets all screwed to hell.
    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.

    I will judge if the policy is working based on the upcoming elections. If the Democrats get stomped on we will have our answer.
