    Re: Obamacare enrollment hits 7 million

    It is my understanding the main reason for the ACA was to help curve the rising costs of healthcare while making healthcare more accessible to the uninsured.
    When it comes to matters of reproduce health, Politicians and the religious dogma of another faith should never interfere with religious liberty of an individual or her faith.

    Why do you believe anything this Administration tells you? What ACA has done is force people off their health insurance, cause them to lose their doctors, raise their deductibles, and not attract the numbers of young people necessary to make this program feasible. It is a typical govt. social program that costs more than intended, doing less than intended, and not solving the problem.

    Jay Carney referred to the 6 million people who were notified that their insurance was being cancelled as a "small sliver of the population". Anyone who doesn't see the irony of 1 million more people (out of over 300 million) all of a sudden changing that "small sliver" to a large number are either wearing their partisan blinkers too tight, or they don't understand the meaning of the word "irony". Or, more likely, a combination of both of the above.

    Fewer than a million people who had health plans in 2013 are now uninsured because their plans were canceled

    Carney: Obamacare enrollment hits 7 million - CNN.com
    Here's a breakdown of those seven million:

    • People who have pre-existing conditions and are paying exorbitant rates for their "old policy."
    • People who had NO insurance because they couldn't buy it due to pre-existing conditions exclusions.
    • People who are getting part or all of their premium paid for by the government...or finding out they qualify for Medicaid instead.
    • People who are incarcerated. Part of the intake procedure for many prisons today is to meet with a representative and sign up for Obamacare, subsidized, of course.


    Woot!! Success!!

    Okay debate just now on the Ed Schultz--
    haven't seen/heard Con radio host Heidi Harris for quite a while--background view in Vegas gets the juices flowin.

    Heidi din't interrupt the punkish John Fuglesang, who seemend like coffee on steroids.
    As she pointed out, show me the exact numbers on all sorts of statistics as to how many have paid for instance.
    I agree in a rushed anount of time to shut every body up.

    Not only that, I want numbers of EVERY Stat imaginable in the Health Industry and then a coordinated plan from both Parties moving forth .

    Where do you get your information? You seem to know what the Administration cannot tell us and provide actual links to the information. Seems to me this is what you want to believe so how about filling in the rest of the blanks as to how many of those 7 million were actually uninsured or not eligible for Medicaid?

    That's nice. Thank you for sharing that. I'm sure someone here wants to talk about how many of the 6 million got to actually keep those cancelled plans for another year or whatever extension Obama granted them. Sadly, I'm not interested in that talk tonight. And it isn't relevant to my post about slivers of the population.

    Have a great night sangha.
