Obamacare Is Falling Apart Before Our Eyes

http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/obamacare-falling-apart-our-eyes_771566.html?page=1

But by conceding that the individual mandate can and should be delayed for one group, the administration has opened a major can of worms. For starters, this exemption is going to strike many Americans as blatantly unfair and arbitrary. It comes at the 11th hour, after millions of people, including those with canceled plans, have already made their choices based on the rules they thought would be in effect. The administration said for months that the mandate would not be waived for anyone, even those with canceled policies, and it vowed a veto of any delay legislation coming out of Congress. Now the rules have been changed, and some families who have committed to pay thousands of dollars in insurance premiums will feel very personally betrayed by an untrustworthy administration.

Obama has repealed it. All by himself.

Great thread, thanks for starting it.

LeftWingersRStupid - 21 Dec 2013 16:20:49 (#3 of 15703)

The really funny aspect is that Pinocchio could have avoided all of this! During the alleged govt shutdown the republicans pushed a one year delay in the individual mandate! I bet Pinocchio now regrets that he did not take that advice!

GROWLER - 21 Dec 2013 16:21:11 (#4 of 15703)

LOL. STUPID OBAMACARE!

SteveFrench - 21 Dec 2013 16:21:31 (#5 of 15703)

I don't believe I've ever heard of anything about this "Obamacare"?

MrNatural - 21 Dec 2013 17:34:10 (#6 of 15703)

Just in time for Christmas. Another Obamacare thread.

Little did the obstinate little narcissist understand that the Repubs were doing him (and the country) a favor.

At this point the Repubs should just sit back and allow the self-destruction to continue.

Geribaldi........

And self destructing it is! First obamacare enraged millions by way of the individual policy cancellations! Then came the sticker shock on the new policies! Now after so many followed the mandate and moved on to the more expensive policies, based on the rules in effect, those rules have been suspended! I can't wait until the 2014 midterms!

You should step outside of your rightwing buble for a little while.

There is huge numbers of people signing up with ACA as we speak and most of them will pay lower rates than they paid before.

Your pipedream that ACA is going away is not happening actually ever. You end up eventually making changes that make ACA better, but none of your repeal legislation dont make through.

GROWLER - 21 Dec 2013 19:13:19 (#11 of 15703)

STICKER SHOCK!

IQ76again - 21 Dec 2013 19:17:35 (#12 of 15703)

STICKER SHOCK!

What Sticker shock, when most of the people get subdisies in ACA exchanges?

IQ OF 76 - "There is huge numbers of people signing up with ACA as we speak and most of them will pay lower rates than they paid before."

LOL, you post such nonsense. Perhaps you ought to get out of your left wing bubble and stop repeating the lies of the Obama administration and their cheerleaders:

Further, the administration and the Dems are totally incompetent. They don't have the foggiest idea what they are doing or how things will turn out. If you haven't figured out that by now, you are dumb as a box of rocks.

You are a bot, there is no other explanation.

It must be at least a day since the last Obamacare thread was started. I assume in that time everyone has come up with a whole new bunch of original and cogent points to make. I'm really looking forward to how this thread progresses.

IQ76again - 21 Dec 2013 23:20:29 (#16 of 15703)

LOL, you post such nonsense. Perhaps you ought to get out of your left wing bubble and stop repeating the lies of the Obama administration and their cheerleaders:

My post make very much sense. Most of people getting coverage in healtcare exchanges are going to get subsidies and so making peoples coverage cheaper.

ACA will end up doing good to your insurance market, it just needs little time to make it effective.

AdrianNTierney - 21 Dec 2013 23:27:29 (#17 of 15703)

My post make very much sense.

No, dear, they really do NOT make very much sense!

Most of people getting coverage in healtcare exchanges are going to get subsidies and so making peoples coverage cheaper.

Since none of the statistics concerning just who's getting subsidies, their numbers, or the size of their subsidies, has yet been made public, iq, you're just blowing smoke.

I hope you're getting more 'good' out of that smoke than anyone else around here is getting!

When people in individual market are people getting normal US average income, then most of the people are going to get subsidies. This is not any higher math, just based on income people in US get.

AmericanWoman - 21 Dec 2013 23:49:32 (#19 of 15703)

Like a broken record.

IQ76again - 21 Dec 2013 23:57:52 (#20 of 15703)

Like a broken record.

That tells you same undisputed facts day after day.

I understand that is annoying to you.
