The Insiders: Democrats are trying to suppress the confusion and hide the cost of ObamaCare


I don’t know if Members of Congress will be hearing about it in town hall gatherings and other meetings back home over the Fourth of July recess, but the rolling thunder of the approaching ObamaCare train can be heard in the distance.  Smart Democrats are beginning to get frantic about the need to suppress the confusion and hide the cost of ObamaCare between now and the 2014 midterm elections.  We are just three months away from the October 1st enrollment start date and so far, nothing about the ObamaCare implementation process should be politically encouraging for Democrats.  In fact, the more people learn about ObamaCare, the more frightened they become.

You asked for Obamamerica, now you are going to get it.  Stand by for suck or as Pelosi says, "Embrace the suck".

My mother in law, is scared to death about all this.

why?

I, and be repealed soon....Luckily, Texas Is not participating....

no and no. I have repeatedly reminded you that even if a state does not setup an exchange THE FEDERAL GOVERMENT WILL. Which of course puts the Federal government in charge. If that's what you want....

My mother in law, spent an hour and forty minutes, on the phone line, with the IRS! She told them, What are people gonna do when Obamacare kicks in, and they die waiting on the phone, wondering if they can or should go to the doctor!

I hope you are being sarcastic here because that's just about the craziest thing I've heard yet. The ACA is mostly about insurance. What does the government care if you can or should go to the doctor?

In fact the opposite is true. The first exchanges setup and information shared shows that rates will be less than current for those that need to participate in the exchanges.

From a liberal pov and from the sales pitches cast upon it this is absolutely supposed to be because the government does care and they are making the right move towards a healthier and more productive society. And why would you as a liberal support a bill that is simply all about making insurance companies richer?

I guess the law is bad enough to worry your party to the point that they delay a key part until AFTER the 2014elections.  Why?  If ACA is so great why keep putting the most important parts off?

Obama Administration Delays Health Care Law Employer Penalty Until 2015

Read more: http://swampland.tim.../#ixzz2XwvTfB5c


The Obama Administration announced on Tuesday that it is delaying implementing a key component of the Affordable Care Act for a year following complaints from the private sector about reporting requirements.
The so-called employer mandate, which penalizes employers with more than 50 employees if they fail to provide a minimum standard of affordable health insurance, was set to kick in in 2014, but now will take effect in 2015, the Treasury Department announced in a blog post first reported by Bloomberg News. The delay not only allows the Administration time to alleviate concerns among business owners, but also takes a controversial component of the law off the table before the midterm elections.

Love to hear how keeping such wonderful legislation from taking effect until after the 2014 elections means it is a GOOD thing.  LMAO.

If Obamacare was so great we wouldn't be seeing people trying to exempt themselves, we wouldn't be seeing it get delayed for another year because of the burdens it creates. If it was so great people would be clamoring to get started and lamenting why it didn't start a year early.  Like everything else big government does, it's a bloated mess of paperwork and lost productivity.  The bane of economic health countrywide.

Remember how the Obama campaign tried to blame Romney because some guy's wife died of cancer after he lost his health insurance?

I wonder how many people are going to die during this year delay.....

You're far to logical.  LOL.  Seems simple doesn't it?   We have the glad-handers running around telling us the wonders of Obamacare while teh politicians who will win or lose from it keep pushing the thing back so they can get one more term before the bottom falls out.   The difference is the glad-handers here believe the propaganda and the politicians know the truth.

HA HA... My Father-In-Law was a true Obama-Liberal-CoolAid drinker last year... when he was unemployed and was not paying taxes and was collecting his free money. Now that he has a job with a Religious Conservative Retirement facility, he's turned into a Neo-con, and is telling everyone how Obamacare is going to Ruin him and how he shouldn't have to pay for all these freeloaders...

He cracks me up sometimes.

She's not the only one scared about it either. I talked to a friend of mine today, whose also worried sick about Obamacare. The plain, and simple truth is most people just can't afford health insurance. Their barely making ends meet right now.It's called "The Affordable Healthcare Act" Ha ha, yeah right....
