Medical worker finally gets insurance on Obamacare website



Remember how many times I have said the issue ad writes itself? Here we have a woman who got health insurance, really cheap, and who had to overcome a deliberate GOP obstacle to get it:



The people are not going to forget who tried to stop them from getting insurance.
So, are you saying the insurance companies have already approved these policies and payments have been paid, received and finalized. I'd be interested in seeing the links, otherwise, it's just wishful hopeful dreamland with broken hearts to follow.
That's the spirit! Keep wishing it away.

You are a classic case of someone going through the five stages of grief. The first stage being denial.
I suspect you are an expert on denial, being a Democrat and all..

Sooo no link I guess...

Is that happening?
Not exactly, fracking coal fields reduces miner deathrates from gas explosions while turning a profit so not speculation, just a way of reducing liabilities.

2014 Should be a good year for the GOP. Do the math.

Gerrymandered Congressional Districts will assure that the status-quo remains. 90+% of all incumbents will keep their seats regardless of Party or supposed outrage of the masses. The House stays Republican.

In the Senate, far more Democratic seats are up for election than Republican seats. The GOP should be able to clam a few of them. It's a toss-up if it's enough to sway the Senate one way or the other however. I predict the GOP takes over the Senate.

I think that has to be a possibility. I've heard Limbaugh and Levin both rail against any kind of a plan, and certainly they have a lot of influence. They're both fans of the Tea Party, and so their listeners would scream bloody murder if a real plan were pushed.

The top priority of the partisan blabbers is not party or country, it's ratings.

.
No offense, Mac, but ANYBODY who listens to Rush Limbaugh has got to be nuts.

Stephanie Lincoln, 60, of Lansdowne, Pa., also had quick success with the exchange — after a frustrating experience trying to submit an application online in October and November. With the help of a navigator, Caroline Picher, working at the local library, Ms. Lincoln signed up in just one hour on Friday for a policy that will cost $113 a month, with no deductible.

I am one of the people whose plans were canceled,” Ms. Lincoln said. “It was just the easiest thing in the world.”
One of the people whose plan was canceled. And now she's happy!




Medical worker finally gets insurance on Obamacare website





Quote:
It took two months, weekly visits to the jammed-up federal website and a half-dozen phone calls, but JoAnn Smith finally got health insurance Monday. It'll only cost her $3.19 a month to cover herself and her husband.

"I just instantly burst into tears," she says.
Remember how many times I have said the issue ad writes itself? Here we have a woman who got health insurance, really cheap, and who had to overcome a deliberate GOP obstacle to get it:

Quote:
Smith, a 60-year-old medical transcriptionist in Clearwater, Fla., must use the federal website to buy health insurance because Florida opted not to run its own.
The people are not going to forget who tried to stop them from getting insurance.
This from the NYT? Gee, what a surprise. Bias much?? Pffft.

1. Cons will predict that they will win in 2014, with the same results as 2012.
2. Cons will blame the debt on the poor, the elderly and healthcare, like they did last time.
3. Cons will campaign on more tax cuts for the rich
4. The electorate will remember the con shut down that wasted $26 billion
5. The electorate will remember the cons throwing the unemployed out in the street, cutting off benefits
6. The electorate will know that if cons win they will throw grandma out in the street too, destroying SS
7. The electorate will hold the cons responsible for destroying food stamps to the hungry
8. The debt ceiling fight will be fresh in the electorates minds
9. The electorate will remember the obstructionism of the cons
10. The electorate will still hold cons responsible for the economic collapse of 2007, and the loss of millions of jobs

What a crock of shit trollish thread. PLease, it belongs in the Rubber Room, not the Politics Forum.


Adults? You couldn't act like an adult if your life depended upon it, let alone recognize what it takes to be an adult

Here's another prediction that is worth every penny you are paying for it.

Rent seeking doctors will head to where they get the highest net fees creating a massive over supply of doctors in some states and massive shortages in other states.

Rent seeking subsidy eligible patients will create other distinct areas of oversupply and shortages of physicians.

1-2 states will get physician shortages and oversupply of patients and start heading for default pre-election. Obama will let the government shutdown in an attempt to avoid such defaults or at least blame the GOP. This time it won't work well enough to do him any good.

After the 2014 election and business exchange roll out he will have lost effective control of the senate as at least half of the D class 2016 will defect on critical votes.

2014 will be easy

Republucans will hold their gerrymandered house
Dems will hold the Senate
Republicans will lose a couple of governorships

TeaTards will continue to bully Republicans into doing nothing

Republicans will lose the Senate, Whitehouse and House in 2016
