Yup. All Ted Kennedy.

Wait, what?

You are suggesting that Congress was depending on the President's characterization of their bill to determine whether or not it was worthy of passage?

That's some pretty potato logic right there.

'You've got to pass it to see what's in it."


It also applies to stool.

Phinn: *** ATTENTION.  YOUR ATTENTION, PLEASE ***

The latest edition of the Newspeak Dictionary states that all anteObamaCare health plans shall be referred to as "Junk," or "Doubleplusjunk."

Referring to anteObamaCare plans as "better" or "desirable" in any way is doubleplusungood.

All Miniplenty Healthcare is bellyfeel good.

All statements regarding buying other healthcarewise plans is ungood ownlife behavior, and is thoughtcrime.

Sincerely yours,
Miniluv


Posting this multiple times in every ACA thread does not make it true.

Yep, this is a farking case study in goddam semantics.

Not really

Yes, really. He didn't quite phrase the shiat in a way that makes the mentally inferior happy. He didn't "lie", he didn't "twist the truth", he just phrased it in a way that lets people cream in their piss-stained panties. It's a semantic argument.

He never took anyone's insurance away.
Most of the policies canceled weren't actually "insurance" in any way.
The insurance companies have had 2 years to plan for this and change their plans accordingly.

This whole argument is being backed by a bunch of desperate morons without 2 brain cells to rub together, and it's one of the weakest arguments anyone has come up with yet.

It reminds me very much of the flap over "You didn't build that."


It shouldn't because that was a clear and obvious dishonest removal of context. This is nothing like that

ferretman: Jackson Herring: Seriously, just for a second escape your echo chamber and ask yourself how you'd react if the insurance companies had made these promises directly to consumers, and then revealed that they knew that for 5-10% of people, it was simply untrue.

and here is the big lie again

in reality, if you had a plan prior to 2010 that you liked, it was and still is grandfathered in even if it doesn't meet the standards of the ACA

the government has no control over whether your shiatty insurance company changed your farking plan so that it could no longer be grandfathered in

But due to the ACA, the insurance companies had no choice but to change their plans...leading to people being dropped from insurance.

This is all due to the implementation of Obamacare.


Obama lied! people got better health insurance with the help of subsidies! rolls right off the tongue...

"We got [Obamacare] done. Now, let's face it, a lot of us didn't realize that passing the law was the easy part."

LOLWUT? What the fark did you think would happen - you'd pass the law and the magical fairies of liberalism would take care of everything else?

He rightly understood he would face massive political challenges in the passage of the law, despite having unprecedented majorities in the Congress.  Once the law was passed, he expected most states would act rationally and take vast amounts of federal money to tailor the health care law to their states needs.

See if you can identify his mistake.

His mistake was thinking the magical fairies of liberalism would take care of everything, over the stiff and vigorous opposition of the opposing party?


Yup he failed to see that conservatives are petulant children.

Does anyone else find the Fark Politics tab most enjoyable when the Obama faithful are faced with making excuses for "their guy"?

So efficiently ruthless in cutting down the other guys, but when it's the home team, completely different story.

"Yeah, well doesn't matter...'cause those existing plans were crap anyway!"

"The author of that article and/or the organization that published it aren't credible!"

"At least we had a plan!"

So, so sweet.

yeah like what do you know math or something swaniefrmreddeer

i mean who are YOU to say that paying $54/month for $50 in coverage is not financially sound

who are YOU to say that those people are not meaningfully different than the uninsured, forcing significant financial burdens on the rest of the economy by creating costs that must be paid by others

if someone WANTS to leech off society, getting unearned benefits while also being scammed by an insurance company, that's what patriots like sam adams and jim beam died for
