Skip to comments.The Coming Obamacare Shock for 170 Million Americans
Posted on 04/04/2014 1:42:41 AM PDT by kingattax
Barack Obama declared victory this week as the deadline to avoid the penalty for the individual mandate to carry health insurance passed on Monday.
The Affordable Care Act is here to stay, the President insisted as he announced that 7.1 million people had enrolled in private insurance through Obamacare. The debate over repealing this law is over.
Consider that presidential wish casting in a midterm cycle in which Democrats will have to constantly defend their support for the unpopular law.
As Jimmy Fallon pointed out later the same evening, the numbers were neither impressive nor reliable. Its amazing what you can achieve when you make something mandatory, Fallon told his laughing audience, fine people if they dont do it and keep extending the deadline for months.

Or another infrastructure stimulus.
Or gun control.
Hey GOP establishment - exactly how many people’s finances need to be ruined before you declare it “imploded” and actually do something?
Hey Ted Cruz, et al. - you are the only Republicans who actually tried to do what you were elected to do.
- You the American pay millions of dollars per year to pay for the medical care of temporary resident Barack Hussien Obama-Soetero-Obama Junior and his family
- American taxpayer pay many billions per year to pay for the Obama’s lifestyle and their $100M for their “Back To Afreaka” vacas
-The whole British royal family only is financed by a dinky $185M per year
- as radical commie Cass Sunstein says : Obama is “Nudger-Rich”
“Obama is Nudger-Rich.
Is you spell check not working? (sarc)
ReaganGeneration2:" Hey Ted Cruz, et al. - you are the only Republicans who actually tried to do what you were elected to do."
The TIME BOMB for the remaining 170 million goes off AFTER the 2014 elections ,
.. and still no alarm or warning from the GOPe ??
Nobody can be that obtuse and ignorant , unless it is purposely obtuse and ignorant !!
What’s amazing is that we believe Jimmy Fallon, a freaken comedian more than we believe this insane magic negro and his henchmen.
Please no responses about the problem of people getting too used to handouts. I'm only addressing the absurdity of his statement.
Amazing. Yahoo News usually puts out shallow liberal garbage. I can’t believe this article made it past their censors.
Watching Freepers refer to this squatter in the White House as ‘President’ is almost as annoying as Freepers referring to sodomites as ‘gay’...
Bingo...they are working TOGETHER! Quit fooling yourselves.
“Is you spell check not working?”
Spell czech is knot yore friend!
None of the above.
Someone’s getting a pink slip at the end of the day....
As we get nearer to the election and things start looking very bleak for the Rats, there will be either 1) another delay in the employer mandate and/or 2) a push by Rats to entirely repeal the employer mandate. Robert Gibbs signaled his support for 2) a few days ago.
Anything to avoid a complete slaughter in the election will be done.
Actually the next big time bomb, as I understand it, will start to go off this Summer, as 2015 open enrollment approaches. It’ll go critical in October, when companies either put out their 2015 health benefits packages, or reveal that they’re dropping coverage completely and dumping people out onto the exchanges to fend for themselves.
The question is, what happens if Obama delays the Employer Mandate again? Does the public stay blissfully ignorant of what’s going on, or do they see the partisan electoral gamesmanship for what it is?
The truth is that there won’t be a repeal of just the employer mandate with a GOP House. They’ll load up any bill with all sorts of poison pills that will destroy any chance of the Dem Senate from passing it.
Barack Obama declared victory with the stimulus deal and the GM bail out...............
Same story new title what a loser.
“Either way, the ACA imposes massive costs on employers, whether those come in the form of fines, higher premiums, red tape, or a combination of all three. Businesses that have new and massive costs imposed on them by regulatory changes no longer can use that capital for investment, risk-taking, and expansion. That means fewer new jobs for Americans, and fewer opportunities to move up the economic ladder as well.”
“Now, perhaps this would make sense if the program that plans to impose all these costs actually did what Democrats promised it would do insure the uninsured. However, the numbers offered up by Obama on Tuesday fall very far short of the numbers his administration used to argue that a systemic overhaul was needed to address the fierce urgency of now with the uninsured, which the LA Times recalls as between 45-48 million.”
You mean, the administration is misleading us??? They lied?? I can’t believe it.
