LOLOLOLOL.

They spent one paragraph talking about the grant, then five talking about website delays that have absolutely nothing to do with the story.

If I got a 1.1 million dollar grant to give success stories of Obama care, I would consider that one of it's success stories.

Is this similar to his predecessor hiring some guy to shill for 'No Child Left Behind'? Because that would be bad. Or something.

...and lest anyone is tempted to label us libs as hypocrites because we're not outraged about this but we're critical of "social welfare" organizations with hidden donors trying to influence elections, you're as dumb as mister taxpayer money upthread. This isn't an election. And, once again, it's private foundation money. Obama isn't disbursing any funds, here.

Better not. They'll only have to post prominent retractions when they've discovered they got the story all wrong, and then they'll feel guilty and won't be able to sleep well at night.

No money needs to be spent to propagandize something that punches millions of people in the face every day, with the prospect of scores of millions in the near future. People are having their lives turned upside down because of this, and the Democrats have it hung around their necks, so naturally you're going to biatch that it's all a plot by sinister forces, because the alternative is being honest about your mistake.

Well nearly a million have signed up for Medicare due to the ACA. That's nearly a million who didn't have insurance prior. They are all getting punched in the face every day. It's part of their health plan.

Leave the farktards alone for now.  I submit the majority of them don't have to worry about having health insurance because they are covered by mommy or daddy's until they reach 27 years of age.  And there's the flaw in the plan that nobody wants to discuss.  The success of the ACA is predicated on young, healthy people signing up, while at the same time allowing young, healthy people to remain part of their parent's plan until they reach the age of 27.   At 27, most people are still under the impression they are indestructible and will pay the TAX, rather than enroll.  Now, since we can't let them die, WHERE will the money come from to treat them?  That's easy.  From the middle-class in the form of more taxes.

Why do you assume the Middle Class? Aren't we all already paying for uninsured people through the indirect tax of higher costs and less service?

Yes. But your and my 'contribution' toward that is going to go up.  Mine already has, to the tune of $600 this past year alone, and I've already been alerted by my employer that it's gonna rise again in the new year.  I make about 65K/year.  THAT ain't exactly rich, so that's why I said "middle-class".

Thanks for proving my point. You don't know what socialism is, therefore we are not going to get the true healthcare reforms that are economically beneficial for our country. A single payer healthcare system has been working in every major industrialized country. Also, before the ACA healthcare costs were increasing at a higher pace each year so I don't know why you are convolutiong your recent increases and it.

Willful ignorance an fear. It's all you have.

Citation needed.

The report, Covering Young Adults Under the Affordable Care Act: The Importance of Outreach and Medicaid Expansion, dispels the notion that young adults don't think they need health insurance. The survey of adults ages 19 to 29 found that when offered health insurance benefits through an employer, two-thirds (67%) took the coverage. For those who did not enroll in an employer health plan, the chief reasons given were that they were covered by a parent, spouse, or partner (54%) or that they couldn't afford the premiums (22%). Only 5 percent turned down coverage because they felt they didn't need insurance.


That's just one. There are 3 more out there even more specific to the ACA and those under 27 wanting health insurance.

It's pretty farking telling that you call for a citation, because you've willfully ignored facts.

Islamascam has failed resoundingly in every possible respect.  There will be no "success stories" to put on this site because it is not possible for any success to be associated with Islamascam.  Anyone who is still attempting to defend this turdsicle should be deeply ashamed of themselves.  The sooner it is repealed entirely and replaced with nothing, the better off we all will be.
