Why did they all of a sudden change their minds? The Obamacare that they are bashing now is the same Obamacare that they supported for five years. Why are they now, all of a sudden, changing their minds about it?
They have to pay for it.
I remember the story of the woman out in San Francisco who was all in favor of obammacare until she found out she had to pay for it. What a loony!
They didn’t change their minds about one thing: it’s all the fault of Republicans. I’m not kidding.
No more loony than her congresswoman, Nancy Pelosi.
They found out what was in it.
They are deep in the denial phase, they're blaming this on the GOP.
I was all for Obamacare until I found out I was paying for it
I should have said “Nancy Pelosi, multi-millionaire, exempt.”
“Pam Kehaly, president of Anthem Blue Cross in California, said she received a recent letter from a young woman complaining about a 50% rate hike related to the healthcare law.
She said, I was all for Obamacare until I found out I was paying for it, Kehaly said.
They thought that it was going to be “free”.
DU first two letters of DUMB.
Also known as Transference. You know, when you hit your thumb with your hammer you blame the hammer.
"This "glitch" only exists because of the GOP positions on the ACA
Don't turn in your Liberal card yet! What we need is more "Liberal", not less.
I'm expecting that it will be addressed through various proposed bills in Congress and we have to fight the GOP to get them passed.
If there are no Liberals fighting for this, it won't get addressed.
I'm so sorry that this has affected your family so badly and I'm going to keep fighting to get these issues addressed for you and all the others who are hurt by them. "
“They didnt change their minds about one thing: its all the fault of Republicans. Im not kidding....”
No, you are not kidding. They have convinced themselves that the bill was so watered down, compromised, and, convoluted because the Dems were trying oh so very hard to get GOP support for it. They believe that irregardless of the fact that it had no chance at all of GOP support and the GOP was never consulted on the particulars of the bill.
To the full-bore socialists over at DU we would be experiencing perfect Utopian single-payer care right now lest for the compromising of a too “conservative” Obama and a the “conservative” Dems in Congress.
Those democrat drama queens all want “subsidies”. Basically, they want someone else to pay for them as always.
They are still blaming the parts of the bill that hurt on Republicans who didn’t cast a single vote in support of the bill.
I love the one that blames it all on the Koch brothers!!
There’s hope for one DUmmie:
I am so sick of everyone but us getting help that I’m about to turn in my liberal card.
“...yet bending over backwards to help those who lost worthless policies. It makes no sense to me. Since so many Democrats are low income Americans, isn’t it in the best interests of our party to focus on fixing the family glitch instead of keeping worthless insurance policies active? I sure would like to ask President Obama that question...”
Democrats are low INFO, not income, Americans.
Of course, North Carolina was Koched in 2012, and we now have republican house, senate and governor for the first time in over 100 years, so we are 100% screwed.
And that's why Obamacare is so bad ...
“I’ve just had it. I was so hopeful that things would finally get better for us when we could get subsidies for our insurance that we can’t afford to use. My kids will not have anything under the tree this Christmas — not even a chocolate Santa. I don’t even have enough groceries to make it to payday on the 31st. One of my kids is on the autism spectrum and we still can’t get any help. I am so sick of everyone but us getting help that I’m about to turn in my liberal card. I probably shouldn’t be spending the money for gas to go vote anyway.” HAHAHAHA!!!
I read a story somewhere the other day that stated that a HUGE % of the kiddies, (21-35 or so age group), didn’t know what the 5000-10,000 deductible meant or how they worked regarding Obamacare!!!!!! (As in I gotta pay ALL OF THAT $$$$$ that before Obamacare pays for me? WTF!!!!!). You are right, reading the DUmper’s melt downs as this plays out is flat out hilarious. I love it! I never miss a day and it is gonna get even more funny over there in the months to come.
Funniest thing is they are blaming the Koch brothers and the GOP.
Dummieland is a mental disorder.
It’s early yet. The really hardcore ones (they travel in packs) are probably still at brunch or nursing hangovers (or into their third bong of the day)
There are actually quite a few lefties who express dissent about ZeroCare. It’s tempting to have hope for some of them, but highly unlikely they’ll ever change.
But the DUmmie has the interweebs.
Lolz. That one twisted my head around.
Koch brothers..... all purpose bogeymen for the stupid left
That's the system we *HAD* you friggin' idiot! That's what you just destroyed! You're "great idea" is to kill Obamacare!!
LOLZ! Would it be wrong to take bullhorn and yell this in his ear?
Used the wrong ‘your’ dammit. I can’t believe I just did that.
note to self*
They’re still blaming Republicans for this Fustercluck....
Yup! They have to have someone to blame for the mess they're making out of their own lives. Bush is no longer in office, and the federal government is now run by their people, so they have to go to the private sector to find their scapegoats.
Just FYI, “irregardless” isn’t actually a word.
‘Don’t turn in your Liberal card yet! What we need is more “Liberal”, not less.’
The ship is taking on water, captain!
She found that not only did she have to pay for her coverage — but someone else’s! That really galled her.
The GOP has absolutely nothing to do with this boondoggle.
Libs own it, Period.
“You know, when you hit your thumb with your hammer you blame the hammer.”
Then you throw it through a window or the drywall.
That's odd. Even Obama is blaming himself for the way he pushed it out before it was ready. He calls it his biggest mistake. He didn't blame the GOP for his biggest mistake.
Hi, DU! Welcome to FR. Yes, we are talking about your thread. You asked for it, you got it. Screwed. But it's still the greatest thing going, right?
One of you was talking about personal responsibility. At least someone there has some sense.
And you know what? When it's all over, there will STILL be tens of millions of uncovered people since obama hasn't been able you get his base, young people, to join. Smart kids.
Exactly. They were all for it until they discovered it applies to them as well. Especially the paying for it part.
