So far Obamacare has cost about 40 times more people their insurance than have obtained insurance through the program. “Mission Accomplished” … if you were trying to speed up the stampede to “single payer,” which will be an exponentially larger failure:


It’s amazing when you consider that the pitch for this piece of shit law was to “cover those who don’t have insurance.” Well, those who don’t have insurance are trickling onto the Medicare roles, and the number of people who had health insurance who are losing it is now in the millions.

Side observation: Nancy Pelosi is repugnant — but you knew that.

Unrelated: Tuesday and most of Wednesday I’ll be in South Carolina on “business” (tell y’all about it later when I’m able), so my posts here and at Michelle’s may slow down a bit unless they have wi-fi on the plane or in any of the restaurants in which I’ll be searching for the perfect steak.

    Great summation on the hits that keep on coming. Still, I'm unsure what rank & file Dimmocrats knew let alone when? I'm sure some more than others. But isn't that a big part of the reason that for the 30+ years Progs have had to polish/deliver this monstrosity..? It wasn't until getting back to the hotel room they found out their 'pickup' was not only a lady of the evening but also as it turns out, was no lady..!

    What we may find in the course of this fallout was the B.O.G's they were sold had more to do about "not having to ever worry about a re-election AGAIN!" or similar politically pragmatic panderings.

    If you want to see something interesting, take a look at this 2012 election map then switch back to the above map showing cancelations. Reaping what they sowed.

    Sorry Marshall_Will to many democrats have come out and inadvertently admitted that they knew all along for me to accept that any of them were fooled.

    More Obamanation Administration dishonesty.

    [...] Obamacare sign-ups vs. cancellation notices in one simple chart: Doug Powers Their Credibility Is Shot: Jeffrey Carter, P&F DC to Obamacare Dissenters: Keep Quiet or Get Fired: Walter Russell Mead [...]

    Yeah, I remember our collective eye roll at the down-the-stretch 'Employment' numbers… Like, really!? ( Does he have to make it that obvious? )

    No, what I was alluding to, after having been in both the military & the private sector.., No one is ever told any more than is absolutely essential to pull off and perpetrate The Scam.

    The dimmest of bulbs, boy scouts ( read honest folks ) and those w/ loose tongues are typically viewed as "security risks". Hopeless idealists that "just don't get it". Debbie Wasserman-Schultz fills the bill, amply.

    Savvy operators like Schumer and Reid were likely tipped off to mount the counter offensive for the inevitable fallout. But again, no more sensitive/potentially damaging info than necessary. Even though everyone is experiencing the same revelations in real time, their learning curves and responses vary accordingly. Much as we saw w/ Solyndra, Benghazi etc.

  7. Marshall_Will on November 20th, 2013 12:38 am

    Oh, to wit; like any good caper/heist; lookouts, pigeons, stoolies etc. are only told/paid to alert if the cops, security or anyone suspicious turns up. Think the Lufthansa Heist in Goodfellas.

    Even Henry Hill wasn't given the full scoop from Jimmy. It's the way things are meant to be, the only way they'll work. And true to form, a lot of the tools that enabled O'Scare are going to get [their careers] whacked. All the while claiming they were "just the driver" when things go bad. Didn't help Stax.

    As I've often pointed out, 80% of the financial fallout from the Housing Boom all came from twenty (20!) zip codes. Almost exclusively from Deep Blue metropolitan areas.

    Solidly, with 10 of those Top 20 coming from CA. The other stinkers were Miami ( jeez the fraud ) Vegas ( I thought what happened in..? ) with the only real Red State Standout being PHX.

    In many of the cases we documented it was standard practice for Cali's to take half a mil. out against their primary residence in Cali and put down payments on tract homes in LV, PHX and even Austin, TX. Yet notice how it became 'all' our problem?

    And think about the amount of taxpayer $$$ shelled out for this POS! And they have not even built the payment system yet!!! How stunningly stupid – we could have insured those 15 million without health insurance and saved a LOT of money. And more stunningly stupid – they insist that this POS move forward. 2014 cannot come soon enough! Remember the old owning a boat analogy? Fits perfect here. Obamacare – throwing money down a never ending black hole.

    And now we find out that the website was not even finished when it launched. It sounds like it is only about 30-70% complete to date )depending on whether you take the testimony of the chief IT guy before Congress who said it was only 30-40% complete or you take a spox at HHS who said what Cho meant to say is that there is only 30-40% left to build) and one of the biggest parts is not even up and running yet…the payment part.

  12. Truesoldier__ on November 20th, 2013 12:07 pm

    Ad to that there was a story yesterday or the day before that HHS and people within the WH new back in April that the website was going to be a disaster.

    And more on Benghazi CIA employees who testified before Congress and totally blow away the administrations bs:

    And last but not least, it looks like Dear Leader may be writing a letter of apology to the Afghan people (at the request of the Afghan govt) to say that America is sorry for "mistakes" during the war on terror. Talk about a slap in the face to every servicemember who served, lost limb or life while serving their country.
