Are they going to have to start over? CBS Bob Schieffer grills Dem governor over Obamacare
Daily Caller ^ | 2/23/14 | Brendan Bordelon

**SNIP**

“One of the things that does not appear to work, or has had a hard time even getting off the — off the floor, getting started, is the president’s healthcare plan,” Schieffer began. “There’s no other way to look at it: this roll out was a disaster. Where are you on that, and how much do you think that’s going to hurt Democrats?”

**SNIP**

The reporter later asked whether O’Malley thought many Democrats would ask President Barack Obama to campaign with them this election cycle. “I hear a lot of them don’t want him in their states now,” Schieffer noted, “because this thing is SO unpopular. I’m not saying it’s good or bad, I’m not saying we need it or don’t need it. I’m just saying that it is very unpopular among a lot of people across the country.”

The commie ‘RAT “Progs” are saying that they have enrolled “millions” in their ObamaCare scam. If the turds on Capitol Hill even try to bailout one insurance company or ask for more money for ObamaCare, every one of them should be arrested and thrown in prison. Obviously, there is fraud going on somewhere.

Bob’s worried that the Titanic and Hindenburg may be a little shaky, too.

I have to say I’m a bit shocked old Bob even said this.
He’s a 50-year member of Journ-0-list.

The reality is that the GOP needs to be working hard, really hard, right now, to develop workable solutions that preserve the free market in health care and that can be shown to absolutely reduce costs and address the issues of accessibility.

They should be putting together substantive working groups, including practicing physicians, patients, and all the groups that should have legitimately been represented but were shut out while Ezekiel Emmanuel quarterbacked legislation that will destroy the best in American medicine - unnecessarily.

If you have a great alternative to sell, it’s a lot easier to get people on your side.

President Obama is a lame duck president and this is all about keeping Hillary out of harm’s way. The media is obviously in the Dems corner but even they can’t cover up for the Obamacare trainwreck and they’re worried about the fallout against Democrats this November and also in 2016, especially as it pertains to Hillary’s presidential run.

The “ideological right” never claimed that the roll out was going to be the problem, OMalice. The problems they foresaw occurred later and forever. Schieff should have asked you why the well-connected official you had in charge suddenly found something she really had to do at home and resigned her job. But what Schieff really need to ask you was whether you think you’ll be indicted for the Baltimore City jail scandal, which is your own Abu ghraib.

The solution is quite simple. Make Obamacare optional. Offer as an option catastrophic only insurance, with a deductible of choice, up to $10,000 or so. Subsidize that catastrophic policy for those who choose to get it, with a $2000 or so deductible.

Then let the free market take over. It will sort out the mess, by letting people and companies decide what type policies suit them best and charge a price at which they can compete for business and still make a profit.

In my opinion, the crux of the problem is the charge by a hospital for a bandaid.

Give the doctor his due, but keep the bandaid down to a nickle.

Once the bandaids are down, the premiums can come down and the doctors don't lose any money.


'Course now, if the real time costs of medical care are not the issue in the first place (which it isn't ... not with lucifercare, anyway), all the logical bookkeeping in the world will be of no help.

The rollout is NOT the problem. The ‘LAW” is the disaster. And the more we find out, the worse it gets. I hear Dems are running on ‘fixing the problems’ in Obamacare. Can you say ‘lipstick on a pig’? I knew you could.

The high costs for hospital stuff are to recover the amounts not paid by the Entitlement Army.
Uninsured med bills are paid off typically about 3 to 7 percent.

With the birth of another grandchild last month I spent a bit of time for 2 days at one of the local maternity hospitals.
My conclusion: not many future Republicans being born and I’m paying for a lot of the future Democrats.

Paying for their birth is morally better than being forced to pay for them to be aborted.
