Everything the Democrats told us and are telling us about Obamacare is a pack of
lies! They lied and bribed congress (the Louisiana purchase, etc) to us to get
it passed, lied to us about what was in it ("If you like your healthcare you
can keep it") they are lying about how many people signed up (sign says 9
million, its actually less than one third that number, by their own numbers but
they are hiding the data about who signed up and we don't know how many
signed into Medicaid). They lied and are still lying about higher deductibles,
higher co-pays and higher premiums for 6 millions Americans, soon to be 40
million! Lie after lie after lie! And they think they are helping America with
their lies! Someone needs to finally tell the TRUTH!
Watching the continued plays by the GOP to dismantle Obamacare reminds me of
those old Wiley E. Coyote acts to catch the Road Runner. Just as he never
suceeded we all got a good laugh at his latest, ludicrous traps that went awry.
Do the republicans have any ideas that could improve America, or have the simply
adopted the talk radio platform of attack attack attack. I think they would
have a better chance of winning if they put forward real ideas, real solutions
to problems, rather than simply attack the other side.
47 attempts to repeal the Affordable care act. 47 failures. Cost to
the tax payer? $50 million dollars. 400 Republican filibusters in
the Senate. Least productive congress in history. 82
judicial blocks under Obama. 86 for every other President in
American history. Republicans failed to meet with Democrats x18
times before… the government shutdown. Costing American tax
payers another $24 billion dollars. But hey! Let's try to stop
the ACA again! What could go wrong? (Sarcasm) Is it any wonder
America is watching the Republican party with disdain? When 1) They have no
alternatives. 2) They only want what they want and no compromise. And the not
only fail to offer working policies, but continue failed ones.
Mountanman uses the word 'lie' x9 times. And yet we have
4,000+ American troops who died on the fields of Iraq over weapons..
that never existed. The GOP healthcare plan seems pretty obvious. Die quickly.
Still amazing that there is no Republican alternative.Want to see about an
alternative tax plan/budget? Look up "Paul Ryan Plan"Why is there
no "Boehner Health Plan" or a "McConnell Medical Plan"?Why
is there no leadership on the Republican side?
Ah yes... liberals are here trying to blame the Republicans. What do you have
against these two bills? You guys complain that Republicans aren't trying
to do anything to fix the bill. So here we are, a story where the Republicans
are trying to mandate that if someone steals your credit information, the
government should tell you that you've been hacked.You liberals
clearly disagree, right? The government can hide all the security issues,
right? Letting people know their credit card number was stolen is a bad idea,
right?Hey, guess what? After Obama and company assured us that it
was all fixed, the website is working perfectly hunky dory, and we all need to
sign up NOW!!!--they fired the company in charge of the website, CGI Federal.
Because, they said, CGI was too incompetent to fix the site. Tell me, if the
site was totally fixed, or even MOSTLY fixed, why did we just fire the company
to spend another 90 million at least on a new one? Could it be that Obama
was--gasp!--lying to us when he said the problems were over?
Remember the Hippocratic oath--first, do no harm? Obama has violated that at
every turn. The patient is complaining about a small cut on his
foot. We must do something, say the Democrats. Obama's plan? If we put
the patient in a tourniquet, he won't feel the cut in his foot. Now, the
patient is complaining that his entire leg either hurts or is swelling up.
Republicans say, "Take off the tourniquet!" Obama and the Dems say,
"That's your plan? Idiots! How is that helping his foot?! But you
are right, it's not optimal! This was never our plan in the first place,
but we read a republican study that mentioned bandaids once, so the current pain
is all your fault, Republicans!!! Our plan, and what we really wanted to do,
was put a noose around his neck--then he will never have to worry about the foot
problem ever again! Single Hanger, baby! "And that's true,
the person quickly would not worry about his foot. But maybe the Republicans
are right--wouldn't you rather just deal with the cut in your foot instead
of Obama's "Cure?"
The GOP have a plan. Look it up. It involves increasing competition among
insurance companies, tort reform, requiring insurance companies to accept all
pre-existing conditions (as it stands in Obamacare), helping people take
advantage of HSAs, etc. There are a number of proposals. Just look
it up. The media aren't inclined to help Republicans, so you actually have
to seek and study the Republican proposals, instead of just getting your info
from cable news.
"Just look it up. "Help me find it David. Show me where
they have penned actual legislation and put it up for a vote. Not just drive by
ideas. Actual legislation on paper.I will wait...
@JoeBlowYou can find the H.R. 3121 Bill Text, titled The American
Health Care Reform Act on the Republican Study Committee website.
Republicans refused to help with this necessary reform -- probably, they could
have contributed a lot of good ideas.No new legislation to help
AmericaNo plans to stimulate the economyNo immigration reformJUST OBSTRUCTIONISM.All one has to do is watch TV news-- the
commercials are mostly from pill pushing companies making billions, and paying
millions per day to stop Congress from cutting down on their lucrative racket.
only in the republican sound chamber can going from nearly 40 million people
without insurance to 5 million people not having access to insurance (or even if
we by their numbers of 9 million) be seen as a failure. 5 or 9 million is still
to many and needs to be resolved but its hardly a failure.
LOL. YOu mean this one? H. R. 3121"To repeal the
Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and related reconciliation
provisions, to promote patient-centered health care, and for other
purposes"It was introduced in the GOP house in September. No
votes, not much has happened.Another bill to repeal the ACA Same ole GOP songThats it? Thats the GOP plan?
I can't get over what some one posted once; to be a part of a family you
need some responsibility's. Ain't these guys sapostta be the fathers
of the country.
"The goal of the Affordable Care Act is to expand coverage to tens of
millions of Americans who lack insurance, to lower health care costs, to
increase access to preventive services and to eliminate some of the pre-existing
condition requirements that insurance companies have used to deny
coverage."What's wrong with that?
If the Dems think the website is safe why are they against the bill. --- All
they have to do is say it's safe and everyone will believe them -- ie:
"If you like your plan you can keep it and if you like your doctor you can
keep your doctor period" .
