Because we all know that Obamacare can only be saved if Obama gives a lot more speeches about it, the new rebranding is on. Obama gave a White House speech yesterday, pointing to the people props behind him, telling us how these people have benefited from this wonderful ObamaCare law. Strange thing is the White House would not release the names and circumstances of the people props he is using to tell us the Obamacare is the best thing since sliced peanut butter. So, as Reagan commanded, Trust by Verify. Remember, many of the wonderful stories about Obamacare successes have proved to be false during these last few months. The President has proven beyond a doubt that he is willing to lie about Obamacare.

Pres. Obama just pardoned the Thanksgiving turkeys. One was named Obamacare and the other was named Website!

What a truthful Obama is saying to Iran – If you like your centrifuges, you can keep your centrifuges!

Gosh, I sure hope Obama can get his second Nobel Peace Prize before Iran nukes Israel!

King Obama has issued an edict. Delay the cancellation notices. Put them off until next year, just like the employee mandate. They cause pain for the Democrats that supported the bill and rammed it down our throats. He snaps his finger and changes the bill. It is the law of the land, but Obama can change it with the snap of his fingers. When Republicans wanted change, there were house burners and arsonists. But Obama is doing badly, so just change it to suit him.
In Venezuela, Pres. Chavez took over the oil fields. The current Hugo Chavez II has taken over several other industries as the state of the Venezuelan economy continues its tailspin. Earlier this year, they took over the toilet paper companies. Now, Obama tells the insurance companies to stop canceling policies his law require be cancelled. He wants to stop the unpleasant effects of Obamacare, just like with the delay of the employer mandate. What will delaying these parts of the law do? Most of the unpleasant parts of Obamacare must be delayed, so the Dems don’t lose in November. Meanwhile, back in the real world, the costs of Obamacare are mounting, the numbers are collapsing the fallacy that medical care can be free if I pay a whole lot more for what I get.

We have been notified that our current insurance will go up by about $120 per month. This is an increase of $1440 per year. So now, our two person policy will cost over $11,000 per year. So, another Obama promise has reached its expiration date. Remember when he said we will save money on our premiums. A family would save $2500 per year. So we should have saved about $1250 per year. Instead, we are paying $1440 more a year. That means that we will be losing $2690 per year on insurance.
Our insurance will have all the minimums that Obama says I have to have. I will have maternity care for the new undocumented immigrant who lives down the street. I will have unlimited rehab for my cousin Percy the addict. I will have dental and vision for all the 12 and unders who live in the nation. It is a one size fits all version of what healthcare the government thinks you should have. Obama has decided that we need all these things and it should be “free”. But it isn’t free. I will be paying for all this stuff I do not need.
I really resent that we get to pay for all this free stuff for others. Meanwhile, that artistic couple with little income is getting our tax dollars as a subsidy to buy some insurance of their own. They are doing what they love, making little money, but thats ok. My husband and I will help them pay for it.

If you like your plan, you can keep your plan. Period.
It was a lie. That is the best take on it. They lied to get the bill passed on a party line vote. They lied to the public to win reelection. They lied and counted on a compliant, worshipping press to go along with it.
Otherwise, they are ignorant.
Someone ask Obama how it was going to cost nothing to cover millions more people? Ask why they delayed the employer mandate to cover employees? That was strictly political. They didn’t want higher premiums, massive cancellation, and shorter work weeks to help Republicans in 2014. Obamacare is “pie in the sky liberal make it so policy” that will not lower costs. It will take money from Medicare and spread it to the young poor. It will cover illegal aliens. It will continue to shift costs from the poor to the middle class.
It will not lower our premiums by $1200 just because Obama likes to promise that. Instead of doing healthcare reform in a limited and smart manner, they will create problems for most to cover just a few.

Early this morning, I was finally able to navigate through the healthcare.gov website onto the actual offerings for my age, my county, and my state. I wasn’t easy. It really is not a friendly website. You try clicking on lots of different things hoping to get somewhere. So, ten days past the account setup, I was able to go into see what is really available.
A few weeks ago, the Obamacare website put a button on that would allow us to view the policy prices available in the exchange without an account. The “shop and browse” feature looked pretty good. All the prices (39 different options) were under our current rate. I began to think that there might be some options in Obamacare. But I just couldn’t quite believe it. It was strangely comforting to think that if our current insurance goes up because of the minimum care standards that require I at 56 be covered for maternity benefits, there would be a fallback on the exchange. Score one for Obamacare.
But, the “shop and browse” feature was a lie. On that part of the website, all 39 were affordable. But when I actually got into the marketplace, only two options out of 39 were affordable. A comparable policy with comparable deductibles will double our costs. So there is no backup for us. We will have to pay whatever the increase will be. Praying that the increase is affordable, but know that sooner or later it won’t be.
This website is engaging in bait and switch tactics that would be illegal if the local Walmart did it. Obama needs to answer to all the lies used to pass this law into existence. Please remember that no Republicans voted for this law. Please remember that the Republicans have tried and tried to repeal, defund, and delay the law and all it onerous consequences. The law was “designed” to give nearly free healthcare to the poor at the expense of all the middle class. Remember this when you pay more for coverage you do not need.

Hillary Clinton for her part in Benghazi…
Kathleen Sebelius for Obamacare roll-out…
Eric Holder for Fast and Furious cover-up or Fox News James Rosen indictment lies…
Energy Secretary Chu for Solyndra and other green energy debacles…
Nah, non of those people. But if you snark on twitter about Valerie Jarrett (Obama’s brain), Hillary, or John Kerry, you are outta there! No matter the same guy snarked about Dana Perino, Darryl Issa, and a bunch of others on the other side. The problem was snarking about Dems. If the guy had only snarked about Republicans, he would still be employed.
So incensed about the twitter snark, they White House spent a few years tracking him down. They did a sophisticated sting by feeding him bad info to see if he would reveal himself. Amazing. Do not twitter about the emperor and his lack of clothes. Obama has a twitter account and many other administration officials have twitter accounts. Is that a firing offense? Throughout the shutdown, lots of snarky twitters about Republicans were seen from the White House. But if a staffer denigrates those around Obama on twitter, full-scale investigation all the way to firing! If the guy had only snarked on Republicans, he would still have his job.

This morning I went on healthcare.gov to check on my account. I was able to get an account last Saturday, 4 days ago. It is still “in progress” and so I cannot see what is available beyond it. There is also some kind of message it says is there concerning marketplace eligibility, but I cannot see it or read it. So I am stuck. Went to chat to see what was going on. Talked with someone called Raven. Is that name made up?
She said that sometimes the pop-up blocker causes issues. Not cookies, but the pop-up blocker. I went and took off the blocker. Why would a computer program want you to disable a security feature. According to eHow, a pop-up blocker is a security measure.
Pop up blockers can help prevent your computer from receiving unwanted spyware or ads that could possibly harm your system. By allowing it to block ads, you can control the type of windows that are allowed to be viewed on your computer. It can help you from clicking on links that could possibly spread a virus, adware or spyware on your computer.
I will try to go back on tomorrow if my computer hasn’t gotten infected with a virus because I took down the pop-up blocker.
When I asked Raven how long it takes to go from “in process” to done, she couldn’t help me and told me to try back every few days to check on it. Great answer. Keep trying. OK.
