So someone looking to buy a new plan will pay 4x what someone who is grandfathered in pays.

Sounds sustainable/s

it’s only for 1 year...enough for the elections of 2014.

The cancellation notices will have to go out before the 2014 election.

Just as Hitler,Stalin or Mussolini, Obama/Soetoro is now issuing dictates from his mouth.

Didn`t King George once say, ‘ The law is whatever comes out of my mouth’. ?

Ditto, lie thread is right.

Hmm, doesn’t matter what Congress does, he’s expected to fix it? Some Constitutional lawyer there who doesn’t know that the three branches are EQUAL.

Such an AHole.

If your current policy is not in compliance with obamacare, the insurance companies have no alternative but drop you.

The American people get stupider every day, which is a politician's wet dream.

A few examples: These evil/greedy insurance companies. If you think they are evil and greedy, don't buy their product: Insurance policies

The evil/ greedy doctors. If you think they are evil/ greedy, don't go to them for treatment when you are sick.

Big oil i.e., evil/ greedy oil companies. If you think that they are evil/greedy, don't buy their products: Oil and gas.

I could go on and on what purpose would it serve? The Nation, particularly the young and "enlightened" have a terminal case of stupidity for which there is no known cure. The only hope is to inoculate the remainder of the population with knowledge so they can carry on after the disease has run its course in its hosts.

Why has Boehner not objected to this? WHy has Mitchell not objected to this. They don’t even speak out saying this is not a presidential power. I heard Boehner say they should repeal Obamacare today, but nothing about the ability of a President to amend or modify or waive a law duly passed by Congress.

Is there other Republican leadership I’m missing? Where’s McCain? Where’s Lindsey Graham?

Is anyone SCREAMING at the TV like me? What audacity this man has. I would like to try and take apart all of what he is saying...but it is so full of half-truths, outright lies, fake humility, fluff and stuff...that it is hard to tear it down. It is exasperating, infuriating and frustrating. The man is a master at double talk.

From your keyboard to God's ears.

There was no excuse for him to be over a half hour late. What was he doing during that time? It wasn't going over his speech since that was written days ago and he has TOTUS. So, just what was he doing? Or was it his ego to make then entire world await his presense?

So 4 times more people signed up for Medicaid than Obamacare. Maybe we should call it ‘Obamacaid’.

It’s the Law of the Democrats, not the Law of the Land.

The ACA is a snowball rolling downhill and gaining weight and speed.

It is totally a political stunt. I believe the president needs not only legislative authorization but doesn’t each insurance company have to go and get state by state approval on the plans that were terminated ? Then each insurance company, with approval, must renegotiate with all doctors and hospitals.

Speak up? The insurance co CEOs were co conspirators in this fiasco.

BTW, I guess news finally reached the whitehut there was a typhone in the Pacific. I guess His Excellency did not follow the national news but was relying upon inside the Beltway broadcasts for his intelligence updates lately. Now he is leading the charge to help the Phillipeans. I am happy he is but what the hell took so long for him to recognize the situation there was such a calamity.

This doesn't change a damn thing - if I'm an incumbent DEM up for election, I'm pissed.

This is NO different than hooking up a terminal patient to a ventilator with a one-year battery supply.

If I'm a DEM, how do I defend AGAINST the charge that the healthcare plans will be terminated just AFTER the election?

ALSO, its NOT JUST going to be 15 million cancelled at that point.

DON'T FORGET, the EMPLOYER exemption runs out next year too.

Employers are going to CUT employees to under 50, CUT employee hours to 29.5, CUT their health plans all together - or some combination thereof.

If I'm an incumbent DEM today, I'm asking Obama:

"Can I get a hit off that crack pipe yer smokin' ..."

“I don’t see within the law how they can do this administratively,” said Speaker John Boehner in a press conference on Capitol Hill. “No one can identify anything the president could do administratively to keep his pledge that would be both legal and effective.”

I found Bonehead....

From Breitbart...

Boehner then said the House would act on the bill proposed by Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI) that would allow Americans to keep their health insurance plans. He added that President Obama would not be able to solve any of the Obamacare problems administratively: “No one can identify anything the president could do to keep his pledge that would be both legal and effective. Promise after promise from this administration has turned out to be untrue.” He added, “The only way to fully protect the American people is to scrap this law, once and for all. There is no way to fix this.”

Then, do it Bonher!! Do it, Pubbies!! We're ALL watching and waiting.

The man is a master at double talk. Now, suddenly, he tells the insurance companies that not only can they offer the original policies to people that were canceled - but they can offer them to others who were not previously policy holders. What???

How can the companies offer something that NO LONGER EXISTS? Obamacare made sure those policies had to be changed. It took years to do that. Now, suddenly, insurance companies are supposed to change it back, overnight? The man is delusional. But...he knows this cannot be done, in reality.

What he will do next is...he will blame the insurance companies for not reinstating people. Just watch and wait. It will all be the fault of the big bad insurance companies.

I agree on every point. Any Dem up for reelection in 2014 had best pull out the old resume. They will not get reelected and they know it. O is throwing them and his party under the bus all so he can have a “legacy”.

And who is going to compensate the companies for all of the time and paper involved in this fiasco?

If the insurance companies don’t comply, they’ll surely be blamed for everything.

And just how long is the extension? Until the 2014 elections are over and nobody has to worry?

I just screamed at the TV as I walked through my break room at work. This entire press conference is all about how this affects Obama. It has nothing at all to do with how this affects the average American.

I was especially galled when I heard him say that there are some Americans out there who need to have their hand held as they go through this process of signing up. In other words, it is our fault that we aren't able to navigate their broken website. What an ASSHAT!
