ManateeGag: So. What's based on lies again?

Two Dogs Farking: I wonder how much the Republican PACs are paying to DDOS healthcare.gov.
Cagey B: I can't wait for the anti-ACA shills to come in and start white-knighting her
mrshowrules: They really have to switch gears and start losing against Biden or Hillary.
UberDave: Ah. Ok. So she's an attention-whoring sack of shiat. Too harsh lady? Throwing out politically and/or attention-getting bullshiat isn't that big of a deal but there are plenty of people out there, many not very smart (admittedly), who need help but will shy away from investigating their own health insurance situation thanks to your assholery.
vpb: I'm still waiting for the first poll data on how many people even wanted to keep these crap plans.
factoryconnection: Yes, THAT Cookie Kwan, #1 on the East Side!
ox45tallboy: People seem to forget a key word that the President said: "If you *like* the plan you have, you get to keep it."
Deedeemarz: They need to stop believing the news and investigate for themselves!
James!: Another instance of the right crying wolf "i'm a dumbass".
haemaker: "My insurance got cancelled because Obamacare, not the whim of some insurance company."
Lost Thought 00: It doesn't matter. No one who believed her in the first place will be swayed by anything this reporter writes.
Vicar It's about this letter you sent me regarding my insurance claim.Devious Oh, yeah, yeah - well, you see, it's just that we're not...as yet...totally satisfied with the grounds of your claim.Vicar But it says something about filling my mouth in with cement.Devious Oh well, that's just insurance jargon, you know.Vicar But my car was hit by a lorry while standing in the garage and you refuse to pay my claim.Devious(rising and crossing to a filing cabinet) Oh well, reverend Morrison...in your policy...in your policy...(he open the drawer of the filing cabinet and takes out a shabby old sports jacket; he feels in the pocket and pulls out a crumbled dog-eared piece of paper then puts the coat back and shuts the filing cabinet)...here we are. It states quite clearly that no claim you make will be paid.Vicar Oh dear.Devious You see, you unfortunately plumped for our 'Neverpay' policy, which, you know, if you never claim is very worthwhile...but you had to claim, and, well, there it is.
Marcus Aurelius: And the reporters who interviewed her without getting all the facts produced inexcusably shoddy work -- from Maria Bartiromo on downMaria Bartiromo is a complete tool.
TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: Maria Barteromo isn't an intelligent news reporter who delves deep into issues and prepares meticulously for interviews?Imagine my shock.
Hobodeluxe: TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: Maria Barteromo isn't an intelligent news reporter who delves deep into issues and prepares meticulously for interviews?Imagine my shock.oh she does her job just fine. she's paid to defend the bottom line of the corporations.

Viewers of those programs aren't exactly fact-checking what's thrown their way, so to them she's just a local celebrity now with similar political views. A little name recognition, face recognition and before you know it she'll be challenging Cookie Kwan on the East Side.Yes, THAT Cookie Kwan, #1 on the East Side!vpb: I'm still waiting for the first poll data on how many people even wanted to keep these crap plans.I'm trying to think of an analogy, where the government stepped in and dramatically altered an industry like this. I think airbags in cars works... at first people thought they were expensive luxuries and yeah there were some growing pains. But now, even if you could, would you want to go without an airbag to save a few bucks? And just like health insurance, you're just one other dumb-f*ck driver away from needing it 10 ways to Tuesday no matter how careful you are.
Serious Black: There undeniably will be people in the individual market today who will come out losers. They will pay more for insurance that covers the same or less services with the same or more cost sharing. They will argue that they should not be paying for others' health care. If they want to argue that, I'd be happy to ask them if those who cannot afford to pay for their own health care should just die.
Lord_Baull: I, for one, am shocked that someone would be uninformed about ACA.
