Skip to comments.New York Times: Health Enrollment Numbers Lift Democratic Hopes
Posted on 04/03/2014 9:03:08 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
WASHINGTON After months of pummeling by Republicans and with a grim election season approaching, Democrats on Tuesday had a rare bright day. President Obamas announcement that the new health care plan had enrolled 7.1 million Americans coincided with the release by Representative Paul D. Ryan of a new Republican budget that proposes changes in Medicare and deep cuts in spending.
Its far too early to say a political turnaround is at hand, but for the first time this election year, Democrats are evincing some confidence that they have at least stanched the bleeding.
Its changing. If youve been around awhile, and Ive been around awhile, you can sense it, said Senator Richard J. Durbin of Illinois, the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate. Youre not going to turn away seven or 10 million people from insurance coverage doesnt work anymore. And then comes Ryan. Thank you, thank you Congressman Paul Ryan, for reminding us what Republicans would do if they had control.

They’re pushing for what they usually do - get enough people on the new entitlement that any attempt to repeal the entitlement can be used to show how “heartless” their opponents are.
What about the 7 to 10 million people that
LOST THEIR INSURANCE
because of Obamacare?
They don’t consider that “heartless”, now, do they?
This will not lift the despair encountered by the people who are being tortured by the Obamacare monstrosity. Let’s hope that they remember who voted for their torture when it comes time to vote in the mid-term elections.
This would be like if the Twins giving away 80% of their baseball tickets WITH vouchers for free beer,filling up HALF the stadium , and then bragging theyve sold out AND set a new attendance record.
To refine your analogy, the attendees were escorted to the stadium at gunpoint.
Sheeperals refuse to acknowledge the FORCE aspect of everything they do, and they must be made to acknowledge it in every conversation.
Obama lies and The Media swear to it...
Goebels would have been so proud!
Doesn’t matter how many people sign up in a program they are forced to at the point of a gun,the point is this is the United States of America,the Government should have nothing to do with my relationship with my doctor,as Obama says PERIOD
I’m all in favor of lifting Democrat hopes, because the schadenfreude will be even sweeter when they’re dashed on the rocks come November.
BTW, I’m trying to remember the last time when New York Times headlined a similar “news” story about lifting Republican hopes. Still trying...
Exactly right,that IS the point,sadly the moron Republicans only complain about the freakin website,who cares about the website,its about time somebody started talking about the Independent Payment Advisory Board,that should be talked about everytime a candidate goes before a camera,that IS THE DEATH PANEL
If I were in Congress, I would call for an independent audit to confirm the numbers.
We’re having a serious family dispute that boils down to a liberal relative and his acceptance of the system and it’s experts versus me and my proclivity to think outside the conventional boxes.
When it’s a matter of life and death it amazes me that the liberal mind set is to accept “the studied opinions of experts” even in the face of evidence that there are alternate paths that might be useful.
To me this extrapolates to people on a very large scale - most would rather accept what their betters lay down for them and not expend the energy to think and take responsibility for themselves.
translation, fake number provides cover for massive voter fraud ala NC with over 150k double voting.
Doesn’t really matter what the numbers are MOST of the enrollees were
booted off of insurance coverage THEY WERE happy with!!! They can spin this anyway they like this law has TRULEY affected families pocketbooks and healthcare! Most NO LONGER HAVE THEIR DRS. or
HOSPITALS!!! So SPIN away, my biggest fear is VOTER FRAUD I do not
believe in our elections any longer!!!!
Ha! Keep polishing that turd for your saviour NYT. Your bias is not even questionable anymore.
Mentioning that would be racist.
“We are all willing slaves now”... see, it is racist to mention the word slave....
There has been slavery ever since the dawn of mankind.
(Ancient Egypt, Akkadian Empire, too many to list)
But somehow the only slavery that matters is the one that happened with the Americas. Every time the word ‘slavery’ comes up, people somehow automatically associate it with black people living in the US.
This bunch makes the old Soviet government and their state controlled Pravda outfit look pikers they way they lie out right and the so-called “journalist” lap this crap up like hungry dogs and regurgitate it and lap it up again.
Family members who reject a message of truth and logic from fellow family members and wholly accept the lies being dished out from "experts" they don't even know.
This is a HARD trial.
yes, very hard.
Doctors don’t know everything...and in fact their predictions are now null and void. Who knows how long this will last - none of us. I just don’t believe in destroying hope.
Please ‘Rats, double down on stupid.
The Democrats are throwing millions of people off their insurance!
So all the Democrats who have run away from Obama and his monster will now turn around and jump on the stage with the Kenyan faker? I don’t think so!
