The bad news keeps right on coming for the Right Wing.

I can just hear the Republicans now:

"Yeah but we have all these stories about people having their health care plan taken away by their employers, their old health care insurers trying to upgrade them to a policy they don't need, and refusing to go on the website or asking for help, and now they have no health coverage. Obama sucks!"

Essentially what I see in the 2014 campaign cycle is a contest between the ignorant technology challenged older people complaining that Obama has destroyed this country, versus the younger, more technologically savvy, previously uninsured, shooting off fireworks and proclaiming Obamacare the best thing to happen to health care in this country since the invention of the Band-aid.

My only fear is that the younger newly insured people will be so happy about their new healthcare, and push to legalize marijuana, that they will forget to vote to protect this new America that they love so much.

    I would like to think we are gonna get Obama like voters out for the midterms. There are enough people totally pissed off about long lines, voter ID's and all the rest of the shit like abortion, gay marriage....the list is long. Just knowing all these states with decent governors that are taking Medicaid and actually promoting the ACA and the ones left out out of spite...that has to really piss you off. Just look at what is happening now....possibly 2 discharge petitions, OMG shoving minimum wage and immigration down their throats. The Dems must have found their balls in Maryland. They can force the vote which allows them to nail that NO to their heads like the scarlet letter...I love it. Long overdue. Just imagine turtleman and Boehner gone...heaven.

    The Fox and Limbaugh Medicare geriatrics (and other assorted right-wing dopes) are in denial. It will only get worse for them. Will Fox be able to deliver enough 'Obamacare Scandals' to keep their spirits up?

    I would like to point out this ONLY counts those that went through the government site. Those numbers no NOT include those that went directly to the insurance company of their choice since they would not be getting a subsidy.

  4. I was very sad to talk to my neighbors and find out that some of the negative stories are true. They went to the marketplace and were forced into policies that required things they will never use because of their ages (60). They are retired and their cost doubled. The biggest mistake POTUS made was to cave on single payer. As long as healthcare is for profit, people will continue to be screwed.

      Big thumbs up Whoa Baby. You are absolutely right. It is still healthcare for profit, and a lot of profit at that.

    I gotta ask, whats so wrong with being old and 'technology challenged'? I'm neither but if I could toss away every bit of technology from the last 30yrs and go back to rotary phones and vcrs I think I'd be a happier person living a simpler life.

    You hit the nail on the head with the Republican backlash. Earlier this week, I got the short end of the straw and had to fire a rabid rwnj, based only on his abysmal job performance, unwillingness to learn outside the job at our expense to help him advance. Come to find out, he applied for and got "Obummercare" as he lovingly calls it. I would never have known except that the information was included in his exit interview.
    We need to get the young folks to speak out on the added benefits of the marketplace of PRIVATE insurance companies.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
