“Sounds like Obama still has a lot to learn. Five years in office, and he still is more naive than your average citizen about the Middle East. He needs to continue to be schooled by Netanyahu.”

“Of course this report has to be false. The President said everything is working just fine.

Everyone is covered. Everyone is going to save money. Obama wouldn't continue to lie about this, would he?”

“Always happy to educate. The US tax rate has already caused lots of movement overseas . . . http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10000872396390444230504577615232602107536. Did you know that the US corporate tax rate is the 2nd highest in the world (behind the UAE)? And ACA is very different from social security. One is not fined if you don't make enough money to contribute to social security.
Hope this helps”

kabegg on Dec 5, 2013 at 11:45:05

“We could have a zero corporate tax rate and corporations would still offshore, because of cheaper labor. Let's be honest, if many of our corporations could legally figure out a way to make us pay them for the pleasure of a job, they would.
Also, one isn't given the opportunity to opt out of Social Security and pay a fine. If one has a job they pay.”

“Subsidize the unproductive and you get more of it.

Tax the productive and you get less of it.

Put an inexperienced, naive noob in office and you get hugh deficits, unemployment, misspent dollars, programs that don't work, and even more inequality. What was Obama thinking to tax the young to pay for their elder's insurance?”

kabegg on Dec 5, 2013 at 10:25:52

“Who exactly do you know that would rather live off of welfare than actually make enough money to pay taxes? Honestly, do you really think that someone who makes 1 million+ a year is going to decide to quit their job to go on welfare if they were taxed at even 50%? It's a ridiculous talking point. Furthermore, I'm going to assume you don't intend to or currently collect Social Security. It's the exact same premise as the ACA.”

“This is a very telling comment.

A person sees a fictional Hollywood movie and uses it as a reference on the insurance industry. It speaks volumes about how uneducated the public is.”

jambrozio on Dec 2, 2013 at 15:21:18

“Geesh. I just said it was enlightening. Ironically, it said in there that medical costs keep rising there will be an attempt for the government to take over health insurance. I don't know when the book was written, but the movie was from 1997. Also showed what we all know. There is no money in insurance if the have to pay out. BTW. I remember when hand held communicators in movies were fiction.”

rrdlt on Dec 2, 2013 at 15:19:08

“Of course it's a mess - that's why the administration delayed the small business mandate.

However, wait until after next year's midterm elections when the public will see the price increases coming from ObamaCaresLess. At that point, it will be a very expensive mess.”

“umm . . . Obama and the Democrats didn't exactly exit the government shutdown at the top of their game. In fact, Obama has already agreed to delaying the small business mandate which was one of the main reasons for the shutdown.

HuffPo can try to change history, but look it up. The small business mandate has been delayed. Obama preferred shutting down the government rather than negotiate this. Eventually, he saw he was wrong and delayed the mandate.

Hardly the top of their game”

Nonpartay on Nov 29, 2013 at 15:53:42

“Oh please. Republicans hate the government though they claim to love the Constitution that established it, go figure, and they elect people who get in there and just try to wreck the whole thing. People like Cruz among others had actually run on shutting down the government. And people actually voted for them to do that. That put almost a million people out of work not to mention all the businesses that suffered losses because of the lack of economic activity, and you're going to try to use this against the Democrats? Are you kidding me?”

“The small businessmen simply won't be able to access it online...they will have to use the insurance directories to buy the insurance for their companies. I believe the mandate to have it is still there....”

icewomancometh on Nov 29, 2013 at 14:09:53

“The small business mandate was the REASON? Such a reasonable request. Has it been delayed now, or is it just not accessible online? I think you're hearing what you want to.”

“Are you a state worker of New Jersey? A little secret...what you read in the paper is not always what happens....it is spinned to make it appear you are getting more than you actually are. You will either pay a state worker..or a for profit company for the services the worker provides. The private company starts with a small bid to do the job...but because of their profit margin...can't continue to operate at a loss I'm sure you are happy that the governor vetoed the raise in tax revenue from millionaires and corporations...and the corporations are still cutting jobs in NJ! How about funding millions of dollars...taxpayer dollars... to the Revel casino...and it still went bankrupt! How about you work in New York because jobs are scarce in NJ and you have to pay $65 dollars a week in bridge tolls...that doesn't include gas! Any way you have to get to work...the fares increased. The state worker is not the issue in NJ. Money was borrowed from the state workers pension fund and never repaid! Those people have continued to pay into the pension system...NJ government has not repaid their part...all so that people like you could get..a rebate...so you should thank the state worker. Nobody wanted those jobs before. Send your wife/husband into the prison system and hope they come home everyday...in one piece! Tired of reading that same ole sh_t!”
