Menendez: O-Care will help Dems in 2014 (Hussencare 21.2 cures 'greatest evils' of old system)
The Hill ^ | 12/01/13 | Kate Tummarello

Obamacare will help, not hurt, Democratic senators in the 2014 elections, despite the website’s troubled rollout, Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) said during Sunday’s episode of “Face the Nation” on CBS.

“I think that senators are going to be in a great position” to highlight the benefits of Obamacare, he said.

Senators running for reelection can point to the fact that President Obama’s healthcare plan helps to “eliminate some of the greatest evils” of the country’s previous healthcare system, he said.

The fact that so many people are trying to access the healthcare shopping website shows that the “underlying product … is critically important,” Menendez added.

Menendez compared the Obamacare website problems to a surge of shoppers, eager to purchase a product, struggling to all fit in a store’s front door.

After recent improvements, it “sounds like the front door has been opened successfully,” he said.

Sen. Bob Corker, also a guest on Sunday’s “Face the Nation,” was critical of the President’s healthcare plan, calling it “just an amalgamation of legislation.”

The overall system, like the website’s rollout, is “chaotic,” he said.

“I don’t know how you fix a program that was put together this way.”

Corker said he receives calls from concerned constituents who are worried about losing their health insurance without having access to new plans.

“As people enroll, I think there’s going to be a lot of negative surprises,” he said, including about the availability of healthcare plans.

If the Dems can pull off enough voter fraud to win in 2014, they’ll declare it a validation of Obamacare.

It takes a delusional liar to defend a delusional liar.

So far the only Republican health care plan I’ve see is Romneycare in Mass.

I tried since Oct 1 to help our son find a new policy. He doesn’t need birth control pills, mammograms - he is a dude. He can’t use pediatric vision and dental - he is over 18. But the new ACA individual policies MUST contain all that plus maternity care. On an Individual Policy he cannot use that! And they jacked up the price and the deductible.

There is no amount of smoke they can blow up the public ass, there is no amount of protection from the MSM can cover for their precious Marxist party, that is gonna save them. People are feeling the impact in the real world, and no lies can make the reality go away.

The website is the least of what is wrong with Obamacare, and it is a false narrative to suggest that fixing the website will at all be a fix for Obamacare.

cures 'greatest evils' of old system

And what were those? Higher capacity to care for patients that this law is causing to disappear? People not losing their health insurance plans by the millions (which were better quality and lower cost than the ones offered by Obamacare)? Etc.?

How many socialist insurance plans do you expect the Republicans to come up with?

Yes...and the Dems’ argument for that is embarrassingly stupid - saying that they need him to pay for that stuff to be part of the “risk pool” - a risk pool he has no part of because he has no risk of those things. Their argument makes as much sense as saying people who aren’t getting married should be forced to purchase wedding insurance for the same reason.

I think this this Sen. Menendez was the same one who said the White House was "fear mongering" on Iran the other day.

THE SCENT OF HOT SAUCE WAFTED OVER THE AIRWAVES Menendez manned-up-—he’s been tapped as Obama’s message boy. Dims are colluding to set the stage for massive 2014 voter fraud. Illegal votes play a big role.

Menendez is providing the cover story-—to shield voter fraud from media scrutiny (hah). 2014 Dim wins, if any will be attributed to the (gag) “wonders of Obamacare.”

Now if only the electorate will go along w/ the scheme. They got taken before-—remains to be seen if they get taken again.

George Will explained it well: “its OK for politicians to be clever-—but they cannot ‘appear’ to be clever. B/c voters equate cleverness w/ deviousness.”

I hope none. That should be left up to the Insurance Companies. They don’t need outsiders telling them what they can and cannot do.

Menendez must have discovered that Obamacide covers underage prostitutes.

Well, getting caught patronizing underage hookers didn’t prevent my fellow New Jerseyans from electing him. Why wouldn’t he think supporting Obamanation Care is a good idea?

True, but they will try! This device is now standard issue to all Democrat operatives nationwide:

This treatment now mandatory under Obamacare.
