Reuters ^ | 6/7/13 | Caroline Humer and Deena Beasley

Posted on 06/07/2013 6:28:39 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

President Barack Obama will tell Americans they are getting a good deal out of healthcare reform during a trip to California on Friday, where an argument is raging over whether it is living up to its name as the Affordable Care Act.

Support for the reform in California, the nation's most populous state, is seen as crucial to the success of Obama's signature domestic policy when millions of uninsured Americans are able to choose health plans beginning on Oct. 1.

Shouldn’t Hollywood just pick up the bill and give everyone free healthcare?

Pray for America to Wake Up

More lies from the lying liar.

Simple poll question: “Do you believe anything that comes out of this president’s mouth?”

With all his scandals swirling about, Obama is shouting into a hurricane. Less are listening and even fewer are believing.

Someone polished Obama enough to get him elected - twice. I'm impressed with that accomplishment. Fortunately, they're seeing with ObamaCare just how hard it is to accomplish that miracle. Explaining to people who don't want to buy health insurance (or ObamaCare would not have had to make the purchase mandatory) why they have to pay more than health insurance is worth to them (or ObamaCare would not have counted on the young, healthy generation to pay for care for older and more expensive patients) is going to be a challenge, even for Obama.

I wish that were the case.

No but I seem to recall the apes down in the Wild Animal Park were pretty proficient at flinging it towards folks who dared to make eye contact with them.

Same ol’

To bad he didn’t pay this much attention to Benghazi. If it doesn’t affect the arrogant little tyrant directly then he doesn’t have to worry about it.

Another trip to Ca probably in front of another fund raiser so he can claim it is a necessary trip. Best case he makes it onto Mt Rushmore, at 8000 feet at 650MPH.

After all the corruption in this morons administration I have no doubt that he will try for a third term, or worse yet just declare himself president for life. He’s still campaigning. Wonder why....

Maybe so, but you can tell a libtard that it is chocolate and they'll gladly eat it and ask for more.

Actually, as proven on Mythbusters, you can indeed polish a turd.

We might need another metaphor.

All the idiots that voted for O’bastard thought they were going to get free healthcare unless they made $1,000,000 a year.

They will be outraged if they have to pay one dime for anything. Ditto if everything isn't covered. You have to remember they are stupid. Not just plain old not real bright, they are bucket of mud stupid.

Now add in the fact that this train wreck jumps the tracks Jan 1 2014, 11 months before the midterm election, and you have a perfect storm for demonrat political bloodbath.

It has to pounded into the voters heads that

100% of the votes for O’bastard-care were demonrats.

100% of the votes for O’bastard-care were demonrats.

100% of the votes for O’bastard-care were demonrats.

UnitedHealth, Aetna and Cigna opt out of California insurance exchange [Obamacare]…Los Angeles Times ^ | May 22, 2013 | Chad Terhune
Some prominent health insurers, including industry giant UnitedHealth Group Inc., are not participating in California's new state-run health insurance market, possibly limiting the number of choices for millions of consumers.

UnitedHealth, the nation's largest private insurer, Aetna Inc. and Cigna Corp. are sitting out the first year of Covered California, the state's insurance exchange and a key testing ground nationally for a massive coverage expansion under the federal healthcare law………..

Sheeple are eating the turd and asking,”May I have another.”I am deeply pessimistic about America ever recovering from the damage of Obama-ism.Obama is an evil genius who mastered Alinsky.Republicans do not have it in them to be as radical(unless it’s this BS gang of 8 garbage)Maybe true conservatives can rally and save what is left of the magnificent country our founding fathers gave us.

An unpolished turd between two slices of bread is the same sh#t sandwhich that sustains the Democrat Party, election after election.

"It's premature right now for people to be figuring out whether they can afford this," said Linda Blumberg, health economist at the Urban Institute.

so how could we have ever evaluated the merits of the plan in the first place?
