Reid: 'Obamacare Has Been Wonderful for America' Daniel Halper July 14, 2013 9:46 AM

Harry Reid said this morning that "Obamacare has been wonderful for America."

"Obamacare has been wonderful for America," said Reid on NBC. "Six million seniors get wellness checks now, 3.1 million young people now have insurance that insurers can't rip off people anymore. That's why people got millions of dollars of refunds last year. If you have a pre-existing disability, you're covered. They should just get real and understand this is a law that's important. and they need to work with us to improve it."

Two thousand pages to cover that one paragraph? So what's in the other 1,999.9 pages? The not so wonderful stuff perhaps?

What is not wonderful is government interfering in people’s private and personal business, like their health care choices.

The government stole $13.4T form Social Security and we owe somewhere about $150T for their spending. Obamacare was designed take even more form the sheeple.

‘The NHS’s medical director will spell out the failings of 14 trusts in England, which between them have been responsible for up to 13,000 ‘excess deaths’ since 2005. “

That's like saying Rattlesnakes are great for America.
It kept the Indian population in check since they lived in tents.

It's getting to the point where I'd be willing to support a law that demands each time a political representative is caught lying to the American people, a finger gets chopped off. It would be worth it to see all the politicians scrambling to jam their fingerless fists into their pockets every time they appear in public.

Reid credits Obamacare for millions in returns last year-—guess that explains how 4.3 million was sent to thousands at ONE address in a small town here in NC!

I’d vote for that. I am so sick of politicians blatantly lying and facing no consequences. We are supposed to accept our politicians lying; they are supposed to be our leaders- so to me it is not acceptable at all.

After premium uplifts in 2010 and 2011, my carrier raised me 16.2% in 2012 to over $5,000 per year despite no claims since the policy was placed in force in 2003 AND no traditional inflection point birthday like age 60.

WOO HOO: I got my Harry Reid + Nancy Pelosi refund check of $48 last month. The wild celebration lasted for...well...15 seconds.

Reid: 'Obamacare Has Been Wonderful for America'

If true Harry, then why is your boss ILLEGALLY postponing implementation for a year (or more)?

WHAT A MORON.

Everybody seems to be missing the main point here. The Dems are doubling down and sticking to their kenyancare game plan however ridiculous it may be. Damn the torpedos and full speed ahead type stuff.

This is a large part of why they win and a divided GOP is losing.

That doesn't even make sense grammatically.

If it’s so great, what aren’t THEY covered by it instead of the ‘Cadillac’ plans, again, thanks to the taxpayer?

What’s so good about:
- Premiums increasing (when they ‘supposed’ to drop)?
- Doctors leaving the profession?
- Covering illegal invaders, aliens...excuse me ‘undocumented Democrats’?

That's because it has not taken effect yet.

I don’t watch TV so I don’t know what the NBC host asked Reid. But certainly your question should have been asked.

With Obamacare millions of people have twelve extra hours of time to spend in their families and communities after they were reduced from 40 to 28 hours per week at work.

So...a wealth transfer to the wealthiest group of Americans? Sounds great.
