The Associated Press actually managed to report that the Affordable Care Act isn’t “affordable” and doesn’t even have much “care” without calling out the Dems who voted for it who now want to lead the charge to “fix” the law (read: throw a ton more money at it).

Rep. McDermott, who voted to pass the ACA, even admits that it’s deceptive:

After paying premiums, many low- and middle-income patients still face high costs when trying to use their coverage. There’s growing concern that the value of a health insurance card is being eaten away by rising deductibles, the amount of actual medical costs that patients pay each year before coverage kicks in.

“I think it’s going to be the next big problem,” said Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Wash., a congressional leader on health care.

“We’ve got some 17 million more people covered … but they can’t access the care they seem to be entitled to,” McDermott said. “It costs too much to use the care. That’s the deceptive part about it.”

Since virtually all U.S. residents are now required to have health insurance by President Barack Obama’s health care law, McDermott said Democrats have a responsibility to make sure coverage translates to meaningful benefits.

Short version: The Obamacare law doesn’t do any of what it was ostensibly supposed to do, so now we’ll have to throw another trillion dollars at it to make the law “work.” And by all means, let’s allow those who deceived us once to spend billions more to deceive us again (those paying attention weren’t deceived the first time but were unfortunately outnumbered by morons).

If this isn’t the best argument for full repeal, nothing is. Too bad the Associated Press reported it all with a straight face without pointing out the Jupiter-sized irony of it all.

    "Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Wash., a congressional leader on health care."

    First of all, the only thing Baghdad Jim is leading is the socialistic take-over of our Republic.

    Secondly, this is the definition of insanity at play. In this case we have the same group of people, the dems, claiming to want to "fix" the problem with health insurance that they created in the first place. I recently had to go to the doctor for a sinus infection. The same visit a few years ago cost me out of pocket roughly $20. Though I was one of the people who did not lose my plan, my plan still changed as my out of pocket expenses have risen. The same appointment that cost me $20 just a few years ago cost me over $80 now.

    Thirdly, if Baghdad Jim has admitted that this is deceptive then where is the DoJ to prosecute those that committed the deception? That is what they would do if it was any private business. The DoJ would have perp walked the CEO on down to the Janitor by now.

    And… unlike All Things Dimmocratic: Any ( and I do mean ANY ) allegations of wrongdoing are swiftly brought down on GOP supporters. In a state where its [former] Senate Majority (ha! ) 'Leader' misses his pomegranates and Cowboy Poets spooning under the stars…

    In truth this case has drug on for awhile, but as long as Dim-leaning judges know a race hustlin' AG's Got.Their.BACK, it's on with the show! ( Where's the CEO of Solyndra again? ) Yeah, what I THOUGHT.

    Cue it up: Now that it is apparent to anyone with even a few live, working brain cells that ACA is broke and rapidly crumbling under the weight of the paper used to create it (none of which appear to be read, BTW), the commie Jimmy McDermott wants to move to step two, their intent all along. That step two would be a universal pay system run by the feds who screwed up VA health care and gave us the corrupt criminal organization known as the IRS.

    I think that it has been the personal right of every person to chose by their self to whom they want to give a vote. I really like to be the part of this when someone is making discussion about it.
