Getting them to translate that into a willingness to spend hundreds of dollars a month on insurance they don't need in order to subsidize the old and sick?

The old and sick whose Social Security and Medicare they are already subsidizing (in the sense of paying more into it than they will ever get back), incidentally.

I don't know Mr. Maguire. The old truism "Ignorance can be cured, but stupid is forever." is particularly applicable to the Obama fans of this world.

They aren't that dumb? Isn't voting for Obama the textbook definition of 'as dumb as it gets'?

Somehow I missed this fact: "an estimated 27 percent of those who will be eligible for tax credits under the ACA do not have checking accounts. "

That's from an 11/8 WAPO story just full of horrifying back-end processing gore.

He did not want to be there neither did Moochelle. They disdain our exceptionalism and military. Never in the annals of our republic have we been led by such a person. He is a CINC who hates and has no use for anyone in a uniform of the armed service but relishes how they fly him and his family to every corner of the globe.

They don't have bank accounts but many of them have income. Most think it is because they don't have enough income to have a bank account. That is true with some but it is also cultural. They do not trust banks, do not want traceable bank accounts, do not pay personal property taxes, do not register to vote, use their mothers address for a drivers license who claims she doesn't know where they are, request to be paid in cash, and want the government to leave them alone. They have no clue who they are dealing with.

That on-topic NY Daily News piece by Michael Cohen is just too good not to re-link.

Behind Obama’s lie, our own immaturity

We can't handle the truth

In selling the health-care plan that bears his name, President Obama has, according to the fact-checking website Politifact, said at least 34 times that “if you like your health care plan, you can keep it.” That statement was not completely true, and it’s a lie that is today causing the President no end of political headaches.

Still, before we fully castigate the President for his rhetorical flights of fancy, it’s important to keep in mind that Obama was — to a large degree — telling Americans what they wanted to hear. In fact, he was giving them the type of comforting assurances they insist upon getting before backing any major policy change from Washington.

Or, as Ace put it, "You know you want it."

It’s always about lying to coverup the Marxist agenda of destroying the middle class, redistributing wealth, and putting big government in control of our every move. Why the lies? We were taught at Columbia that “It’s for the greater good” and “We know what’s best for those people” and ”The ends justify the means.”

Obama learned well.

But the key to it all is to “boil the frog slowly.” We learned at Columbia to set the fire low, so the frog wouldn’t complain. By the time he realized what was happening, he’d be cooked.

That’s why every Obama speech starts and ends with “I’m here to save the middle class,” while his actions are annihilating them. He’s boiling the frog slowly. By the time the middle class realizes he’s the killer, and they’re the prey, they’ll already be dead.

The root (excuse the pun) of every Obama policy, everything Obama does, and everything happening to the U.S. economy, all started at Columbia. The entire Obama agenda to overwhelm the system, wipe out the middle class, bankrupt small business, and destroy capitalism, was hatched at Columbia. Obama may not have attended class, but he learned well.

He should have received the Karl Marx Award for “Student Most Likely to Destroy America.”

I see the biggest obstacle to complete decimation of the ACA to be the fact that this is Obama's 2nd term. Lots of people assume he could only have been re-elected if he was indeed credible.

Miss Marple

The girl who does my hair doesn't have insurance. She's 26, healthy, and has paid cash for every doctor visit.

Her premium would be over $300 per month with a $5000 deductible. She never pays that much in any year.

So, her estimation is that they are going to ask her to continue to pay cash and hit her with a useless premium.

She is going with the penalty and not signing up.

I imagine there are a lot of young people doing the same thing.

Jane is right - very emotional - I battled to hold back tears as I am still at the office.

MarkO

If I understand the law, which I doubt, a 27 year old could simply refuse to sign up now but sign up if and when he or she became seriously ill.

Meanwhile, ER visits are free.

Did I get this right?

MM - I think I have told this story before (long time ago). My youngest daughter, done with school had just started a part-time job - no insurance. She was taken to the hospital one night in much pain, had with ruptured ovary and surgery. Hospital bill was in the thousands. She met with the hospital and they settled her bill at a few hundred, which she was able to pay off very quickly.

Yes. And people that age are going to do just that.

As I said, my beautician has made the decision to take the penalty. She's 26.

When the Obama administration releases health law enrollment figures later this week, though, it will use a more expansive definition. It will count people who have purchased a plan as well as those who have a plan sitting in their online shopping cart but have not yet paid.

If Amazon counted all the stuff sitting in people's carts as sales, they'd get prosecuted by the SEC for fraud.

"Supposedly you can't sign up after March"

You can purchase a policy whenever you choose to. You face the tax if you wait past March, unless it's due to a "change of circumstance". I'm hazy on how pre-conditions are handled if you choose to purchase a plan outside of the standard enrollment period.

I believe everyone in the United States should follow President Barack Hussein Obama's example of truthfulness in dealing with the government and their lapdog insurers until he leaves office.

It would only be fair.

Before I go outside on the terrace to read my book I am going to make a prediciton: 404Care will fail by year's end - not 2014 but 2013, I suspect that the WH is now working quietly with the Congress to find a way to either repeal or amend the law to make it more politically acceptable.

I also predict the Jacksonville jaguars will win the Super Bowl.

Old Lurker,

The only thing I can think of is to pass something that says everyone is back to where they were in August of this year. Uncancel the policies, go back to the previous rates, etc.

Then have ANOTHER fight about what should be done. The GOP would have more clout after this fiasco, but whether the dems would go along with it I don't know.

And Obama wouldn't sign it. They would have to pass it with a veto-proof majority.

Hey DoT, how are you feeling?

minorjb@aol.com

Reading all of the comments on The Booman site reveals that 404Care has its cheerleaders--people solidly invested in the miracle of our government's takeover of healthcare.

They'll never convince me it won't be anything but a mess.

When we hear that the IRS is so incompetent that it has sent hundreds of tax refunds to one address in Serbia or some other sh*thole and, if one of us failed to pay our taxes or were late in doing so or figured our payment wrong, we'd be subject to paying interest, continued harassment or worse, as well as subject to fines or tax liens on our real estate, it sort of makes me cynical about the beauty of the government's new insurance.

This post is garbled grammatically, as well as intellectually, but liberals who love obamacare and our government continue to leave me pissed off and unable to articulate my thoughts correctly.

Bastards.

Miss Marple

IRS story:

I have to pay our taxes, both state and federal, quarterly. Our accountant gives us envelopes to mail with the checks.

So, when I filed this spring Indiana was supposed to refund $450, but I only got $50.

So I went to look for checks cashed in my bank account. I was getting ready to fuss at Indiana until I saw the copy of my check which had stamped across the front "US Treasury."

Apparently I had sent the Indiana check in the same envelope as the IRS check.

And they didn't return it, or send it to Indiana, or send me a notice. They just cashed it and kept that money for an entire year!

I would like to point out that if I received a check made out to someone else and cashed it and held the money for a year, I would be sitting in the penitentiary. It's called conversion.

OL,

Just a gut feeling. Two things: 1) Issa on the march calling the CIO of the Wh and the WH saying he is too importatnt fixing the thng. and 2) the abandonment by the democrat Senators who are up for election in2014 plus a few others. Now here 2+2 doesn't equal 4 but it does give pause as to why ask the question to begin with if we all know the answer?

If they do not have a plan B, then they are betting the farm on Jeffrey Zients. Would you? No, I woiuld have a plan B and it better be more than a delay. It better ameliorate those who have been cancelled or raised premiums or increased co=pay or larger deducts because money talks and apologies walk.

Just my simple opinion. Hope I am wrong and Obama is stupid enough to stick with his trick monkey.

Hydrocodone is glorified aspirin. Oxycodone, as in Percocet, should never be wasted by taking it only with water. A good merlot or a Martini will restore the soul and lift the DOOM.

There is no way to go back. If you are sick, have a policy that has been cancelled, you can't pay an insurance company enough to reinstate that policy. Why would they? I don't think even Obama can dictate tat.

I think we are all in a helluva fix. I read somewhere today (while at work), that while BOzo and gang were royally effing up their computer systems, the insurance companies were not.

They were quite efficiently rewriting to meet BOzocare regulations and state regulations every state is different), reprogramming all their software, generating cancellation notices and new policies.

Doesn't seem ANYONE can just snap their fingers (BOzo or Congress) and put the genie back into the bottle the way it was - at least not anytime soon.

JiB,

I believe verification is the same whether a parasite does a DIY or has Ms Jeantel as a guide. The fascist enablers at BlueGovIns will scream like banshees if verification is waived because they are on the hook for two months worth of insurance when Debbie Deadbeat skips paying but continues to use.

In fact, waiving verification would be justification for the fascists to withdraw.

Well, perhaps I am in the minority, but the emotional porn shown on special report is not for me, perhaps an acquired taste.
I receive it as a bit of voyeurism into a particularly special moment in a family's life, a moment that is personal to the participants. I have to look away.
