Here is the thing. Ive never had a problem with temporary assistance at all. We are a civilized country who can help. But, Its those who have made it a convenient lifestyle which leads to generational dependence. And I refuse to believe 50% of Americans are truthfully dependent in sone sort of way. For many, it’s gravy.

Get well ok.

It it too late for the insurance companies to change back, no matter what Muhummad Al-Obama says!

It’s hard to know what will happen. I understand that yesterday Boeing talked to the governor of Utah about putting work in that state.

The machinists are just so foolish and selfish

I think Obama already told them, “If you like your nuclear weapons you can keep your nuclear weapons.”

“Will killing sick kids and elderly cancer patients finally be enough American bloodshed for people to awaken from their apathy about who and what Obama and the Democrats really are???”

Don't think so. Yes, I've become very disillusioned.

Plus we have some of the best plans in the country. Thanks to Group Health for making the costs stay low here. It’s a fact.

My plan is to get myself fixed up, start to get healthy, and search for a good, long-term job soon after so I can drop Medicaid and get on insurance through work. I have no wish for this to be a long-term thing, but I’ve felt bad for so long, and it’s difficult for me to stay cognizant at a job, so I need to do something to correct it. People that have endocrine issues will understand.

Washington state Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler says those changes will not be allowed in our state.

Uh-oh. SOMEbody just painted a huge target on his own back. Just how long does it take for a drone to get from Camp Pendleton to Warshington State?

Ain't democracy mob rule great? The people spoke "truth to power," and wanted "hope and change."

This is what the truth of unobstructed power looks like. A lot of things changed and what's left is diminishing hope.

Everything is great for Paul when you rob Peter to pay Paul...it's not so great when Paul realizes Peter AND Paul are getting robbed to pay for Jose, Miguel, Pedro, Maria, Anna, Mohamed, Abdullah, Omar, and......

Detroit, is the progressive version of the shining city on a hill.

There's reasons why we were meant to be a constitutional republic.

0care is one of more than 17,000,000,000,000 reasons.

You mean Kaiser. Well, that is not exactly the kind of socialized medicine that limits the level of care that you receive, base on where you live. Is it? Living in Whatcom County, we had all the benefits and none of the draw backs, since we didn’t have a Kaiser hospital anywhere near here. It wasn’t until Obama took office that the doctors were persuaded to “follow the government guidelines” in order to receive bonuses.

I seem to remember that there was a scandal about that type of bonus at Kaiser in CA. Maybe it was everywhere, but I lived in CA at the time.

What the insurance commissioner is saying is that with or without the feds, WA is going forward with the plans for socialized medicine.

I agree with you, that is what he is saying as a hard-core socialist demoCRAP. However based on the sign-up numbers, so far only 106,000 in the entire USA have signed up for 0dumb0Care, 27,000 in the Fed website debacle and only 79,000 in 15 state exhanges, which includes WA state. So demoCRAP WA insurance commissioner, it does not look like residents of your own WA state are flocking to 0dumb0Care either.

Let's see 106,000 signups, only 300 million left to go. /s

Obama can’t simply decree outside the confines of legislation..

I disagree. He can do any thing he wants for as long as he wants.

But 0dumb0 still needs the state insurance commissioners to approve this for their states, and most important is that he needs the insurance companies to re-write their policies. So far I am not aware of a single state or insurance company that has agreed to do this.

I think 0dumb0 naively thought that his decree would fix everything and instead even the demoCRAPs are realizing that he can't do this or force the states & insurance companies to do this.

Thanks Zakeet. Probably doesn’t go far enough toward carbon emission reduction, reparations, and gun confiscation to suit ‘em.

D.C. names insurance commissioner (to replace the one fired for criticizing Obama...)

WA State claims to have signed up almost 8 thousand for Obamacare and another 48 thousand put on expanded medicaid. That might be the highest percentage of medicaid sign ups in the country. How do you think the state is going to pay for them when the federal subsidy drops out?

That is what I am thinking. I did look at that chart again, though and realized that the 48,000 figure is how many WA has eligible for medicaid, not how many have been signed up.

The other thing is that WA State had a problem with its exchange also. The problem was that the software was over estimating the amount of subsidy the insured would receive by $100 per month. So, each and every application that was filled out must be redone by the applicant. No numbers have been announced about how the redo effort is going.

Something else that I have been thinking about is Inslee’s remarks about revisiting the idea of putting all state workers on Obamacare. That could apply to teachers in WA as well because the teachers decided to reject the WEA self insurance plan because it would mean forcing out all other school workers that are currently insured under the same plans as the teachers.

Self-insurance is an exemption under Obamacare.

So true. And 8,000 sign-ups for 0dumb0Care in WA state? Sounds like they (the libturds in WA state) have only another 5 million or so sign-ups to occur. Piece of cake according deranged libturds!
