    The good thing is people will eventually be forced to notice since it effects their pocketbook.

    You won't notice, though, since you're so wealthy.

    The whole thing looks like it is going to collapse before it even gets started.

    Good clip! And such a shame the msm is clearly out to destroy the traditional America, yet, very few do anything about it. i.e., tuning them out. I'd rather watch a gardening channel, or something boring like that. At least I'd get the truth! The msm wouldn't know the truth if it was hanging from their asses.

    Good thing is they're slowly fizzling out. More and more people are getting their news elsewhere.
  5. The full impact of Obamacare won't begin to be felt until 2014. THEN we'll see (1) how many people lose their job, (2) how many employees lose their health insurance, and (3) when the din becomes so loud it can no longer be passed over, the MSM finally comes out and "calls a spade a spade". (Then again, maybe not. Could be the MSM will continue to hold to the attitude, "we ain't NEVER squealing on Odumbo, regardless".)

    Sebelius Tries To Blame GOP For Coming ObamaCare Failures

    Health Care: As Democrats grow increasingly worried that ObamaCare will explode on the launch pad just as midterm elections get going, the Obama administration seeks to pin blame on Republicans. Good luck with that.

    Earlier this week, Health and Human Services head Kathleen Sebelius admitted that she didn't realize how complicated getting ObamaCare off the ground would be.

    Sebelius complained that "no one fully anticipated" the difficulties involved in implementing ObamaCare, or how confusing it would be with the public.

    She wasn't talking about the massive and impossible task of imposing central planning on one-sixth of the nation's economy.

    Instead, she was trying to find a way to blame Republicans for ObamaCare's failures when the inevitable problems start emerging.
    Rather than say "let's get on board, let's make this work," recalcitrant Republicans have forced her to engage in "state-by-state political battles," Sebelius said at a Harvard School of Public Health forum. "The politics has been relentless."

    So let's see if we get this. Democrats shoved an unpopular, expensive, ill-conceived and poorly written law down the country's throat with no Republican support, and without bothering to see whether states would want to take on the thankless and costly task of helping the feds implement it.

    And now that many of these states are rebelling, it's the Republicans' fault?

    Sebelius' fellow Democrat, West Virginia Sen. Jay Rockefeller, had a more accurate take on the problem the administration faces: the law is "probably the most complicated piece of legislation ever passed by the United States Congress" and "if it isn't done right the first time, it will just simply get worse."

    Rockefeller, like a growing number of Democrats, realizes that ObamaCare is shaping up to be a political disaster for the party next November.
    The influential Cook Political Report noted earlier this month that almost all of the Democratic insiders they talked to "voiced concern about the potential for the issue to hurt Democrats in 2014."
    And just what could explain these concerns?

    Maybe it's because even Sebelius now admits that ObamaCare will force insurance claims up 32%.

    Or possibly it's because, despite endless assurances that the insurance exchanges would be ready on time, the administration had to delay for a year a key feature meant to give small business a choice of health plans.
    Or because neither Sebelius nor the states have provided evidence they can get the rest of the exchanges ready by Oct. 1, when ObamaCare's open enrollment begins.

    Or perhaps Democrats' fears stem from state insurance commissioners warning of a rate shock once ObamaCare's "community rating" rules and benefit mandates start. Or from rising evidence the law is hurting job growth as small businesses try to avoid its costs.
    None of this, mind you, has anything to do with Republicans. And if the GOP were smart, it'd be focused on making sure that, come next November, the public knows that, too.

    It's too bad no other advanced nations have been able to make national healthcare work. We could have done some modeling, steal some best practices, etc., and put something together for ourselves, maybe something along the lines of Romneycare.

    Or we could have simply taken notice of the fact that the healthcare system in every single country in the G7 is broke, or going broke, on top of all the massive problems with getting the care people are being taxed for, and also took notice that all of our own entitlement programs are broke, and made the logical decision that obamacare was a bad idea.

    "or going". There's always the caveat, "it's comin'!"
