thegreek, to me the short answer is that although they cater to the victims of society, they themselves have perfected the role and claimed it as their own. no matter if the social policy has failed in the past, they will simply say that it did not work because it was not they who were implementing it and if given the chance it will surely work this time. silly rabbits. they really believe that the large square peg will fit in that under-sized round hole and vice-versa. given enough time, maybe even less actually, our great nation will resemble the country associated with your screen name.
LTS. Why is it that the dems can shirk all responsibility for this collosal lie and failure and waste of taxpayer money??? Seems they will survive unscathed in the opinion polls by continuing to blame others for their mess that they ALONE solely created !!! How can that be??? Not 1 republican voted yea for the ACA but they will be blamed!!!
the monkey has left the football, that is the Affordable Care Act, looking like a block of swiss cheese. this is a stunning example of the Democrats ineptness. for goodness sake put another bag of popcorn in the microwave. this show is just too good to miss!
oops.....sorry for the double post. twitchy mouse finger.
atlas2025, the left could have done a better job writing the original legislation. remember they did not want any help. they stumbled all over themselves just like a kid let loose in a candy store. they were so positively giddy to the point of salivation at the thought of creating another grand government scheme that they neglected their duty to write and pass a budget while in absolute power. the monkey and the football saying comes to mind.
Putin still has a Superbowl ring.
Is the Obamacare rollout going so well that there is just nothing to report?
beright- do you feel there will be lives lost because of the implementation of the aca, .... bankruptcies,..... lower profits for the insurance industry.... ?
Both sides, when reasonable, admit the the law itself has problems and they will fix it later. If we know what the problems are with the law now, why not fix it now?
As it stands right now I would like to see them hold off on it for a year to work the kinks out of it and have further debate etc on it.
The right could have taken a far better approach than what they did to achieve that.
Hey I dont like the ACA all that much. There are some good things in it but I feel its not really doing anything about the real reason why people dont get the health care they need.
Namely the costs associated with it.
All this is doing is forcing people on insurance.
I mean there have been people who had insurance and their health care bills have still bankrupted them.
Making health care truthfully affordable is what should be done.
I dont care for having a middle man in the works if you know what I mean.
The program will not fail because of the web site. It will fail because 60% of the American People are against it. BTW: why don't we hold off for a year like we are doing the employer mandate? And what about all the exemptions being issue? What is that all about?
Sorry but you think the website glitches are somehow only relegated to ACA site. But there are just a plethora of website crashes due to customer overload. It happens all the time. To big companies.
For you its just a nit picking point to bring up to say "hey looky here told you it would fail".
You sound like you want it to fail no surprise you'd latch on to anything that makes it look like you are right.
A nation that once sent men to the moon can't even now can't even bring up a web site for Obamacare.
As a serious suggestion, they should have contracted with Amazon to do their healthcare exchange web site not the nuckleheads that screwed up the current one.
The healthcare exchange fiasco is what happens when the Gov't awards contracts to the low bidder.
Is that the same as admitting "My law won't cause you to lose the doctor that you want to keep. The EFFECTS of MY law may cause you to lose the doctor you WANTED to keep?
I don't think Obama has EVER given to shakes about his "Legacy". His performance has been to turn this country into what he, and the people who influenced his life, wanted it to be all along.
Get used to it. Hillary is running and will use voter ID laws to get the minority vote. That will be onme of two issues she will run one. The other is I am woman hear me roar. She will win and Bill will be back in the Whitehouse. Better lockdown the interns and get a drycleaner on call to get stains from the dresses.

This is interesting. I can post this under both Clean Energy and Obama’s legacy. I would call the a twofer:
Indiana Michigan Power, an operating unit of American Electric Power , has announced it will retire the 500 MW Tanners Creek 4 generating unit along with the other three units at the plant. All four generating units at the plant will be retired by mid-2015.
The announcement of the retirement of Unit 4 brings the total of coal-fueled generation that will be retired by AEP to 7,176 MW by early 2016.
Obama quote 2009: My healthcare mandate is not a tax.
Supreme Court Decision 2012: Obamacare passed into law as a tax.
