Republicans and Tea Party alike warned of all the pitfalls. They were shouted
down as liars. here is just another example.Politicians know this
stinks and are doing anything they can to not be subjected to it. They get the
choice and we don't. Great.Liberalism will be the
downfall of this country.
What else did you expect from Obama.....he thinks someone making $50000 is rich
and should shoulder the healthcare cost of someone who wont work and is on the
public dole! Thatcher rest her sole said it best "the trouble with
communism is the run out of other peoples money"......America is
just waking up to this foolishness.....and will vote this Obamacare mess out in
2014! and Render Obama the lame duck that he is!
These are the same ones who wanted ten years of Romney's tax records.
Obama paid 18% in taxes, compared to 35% for Mitt.Now exemption from
No sense in actually READING the article before commenting.Not when
the title is enough to incite the desired result.Bottom line,
Grassly put in some wording to stop the Govt from subsidizing its employee
healthcare.Now their healthcare costs will go up significantly. (just
like yours would if your employer stopped contributing)Because of
Obamacare? Nope, Because of political games by GOP Senator Chuck Grassley.But, don't bother to read the facts. The headlines are good
Sen. Grassley did not realize that the Democrats would resort to the idea that
it has to be passed in order to find out what is in it. Some Senators did not
realize that there were a lot of controversial clauses as well as all of the
pork that was used to entice a few to vote in favor of this catastrophe. Now the
bad parts are being revealed as we get closer to full implementation and people
in both Houses of Congress are scrambling to correct anything that will
adversely affect them without repealing it altogether. The rest of us will just
have to live with the parts that adversely affect us.
Mitt Romney was right!
Thank You Joe, your absolutely correct. Just more "I hate Obama" hubris
from the right.
@Happy And what is not to hate?
JoeBlow,No, from the article, “Grassley's amendment was
intended as a "poison pill," meant to embarrass Democratic lawmakers,
not actually become part of the law.” The bottom line is
Grassley put the amendment in in an effort to stop this monstrosity, but dems
wanted it, warts and all. I guess you missed that. Dems didn’t even bother
to read it before they passed it!There is NO WAY repubs can be
blamed for ANY of this monstrosity! NONE!!Happy Valley, I
guess you neglected to read the article as well. And you don't EVER
evidence hate in ANY of your acrid comments? hubris indeed!
Yeah, talk about reading the article, I'd have preferred that the
politicians who voted for it have had time to read the bill! Remember Pelosis
famous, we have to pass it to know what is in it.? She should have been kicked
out of Congress for such an irresponsible position when dealing with 1/6 of the
The thing that galls me about Congress, is they already "exempt"
themselves from the Social Security program that they insist we all who are not
government employees pay into. If SS is so good they why don't they live
with it too? Or, if their program is so much better, which I'm sure it is,
then why don't they give regular people the ability to have something else
too? It should be a "choice" not a force.
"No sense in actually READING the article before commenting.Not

the healthcare bill was passed? "We have to pass it to find out what's
One word for Senator Grassley and the Good Old Boys's club. KARMA!
Obamacare is a poison pill.
HS Fan,you mean the Good Old Boys' Club of ALL the senate and house
dems (especially nancy pelosi who didn't bother to read it) who voted for
this monstrosity? Is that who you mean?Or are you just throwing
ill-aimed barbs at those repubs you hate and who did not vote for it (except for
the one or two RINOs needed for passage)?
Just like a republican to slip a ruffie in someones drink and then blame them
for not knowing.orReminds me of the scorpion riding
across the river on the frog.
@Lost in DCThe Good Old Boys club is full of Republicans and Democrats.
Good on them that their staff would have to live by the same rules as the
general public. The analogy of the scorpion and the frog is an excellent one.
But, we have to comment on it to know what's in it! Why read it?
The question you have not made clear is who is represented by the scorpion and
by the frog?I can tell you this though, the Republicans have been the frog
a whole lot when dealing with Democrats and their false promises of cutting
budgets and securing borders in order to pass bills. Obama was quite a scorpion
when he said that "if you have a doctor or health care plan that you like,
you can keep it." And remember, Obamacare was and is a 100% Democrat plan.
And was not then or now popular with the majority of people.

anybody's doctor or healthcare, please cite something cause that's
news to me as nothing has changed in my health insurance. Thanks for
giving Obama 100% Credit but to be honest they got the plan from folks like the
Heritage Foundation and Mitt Romney's Mass. Plan.The Majority
of people like many aspects of Obamacare, but most have been fooled by those
scorpions into believing it's all bad. When asked about the individual
parts most agree with them. When asked in general without detail, the radio fans
HVH,you are really showing ignorance asking who is losing their health
care thanks to Obamacare since companies across the country are dropping their
plans because the fine is cheaper, and doctors are dropping out like flies
because they can no longer cover their costs thanks to Obamacare. Just because
you are able to keep your medicaid does not mean productive folk are not losing
their coverage.Scorpions? yep, BO and the dems.Ostrich
with the head in the sand - BO apologists who refuse to recognize the ill that
is coming from this ill-conceived monstrosity.
