“Labor Department statistics say that government employment has decreased by 608,000 since February 2009.

Public-sector employment (i.e. federal, state, and local government jobs) declined in 10 of the past 12 months, in sharp contrast to 29 consecutive months of private-sector job growth.

If government employment had grown as fast under Obama as it did under Bush, we’d have a million and a half more people employed right now — directly.

...add in state and local government jobs, and the hard number for government employment dropped by around 600,000 after Bush left office.”

“Only in America do people with garbage health plans, that barely cover them, complain that a new law guaranteeing them much better coverage is horrible. They should be thankful their old garbage plan expired and have no choice but to protect themselves from financial ruin should they actually need that coverage.”

earlfordtruck1 on Nov 14, 2013 at 22:21:42

“It was their choice to buy what coverage they needed not have a Dictator tell them what they have to buy. Do you really think a 45 year old women needs obstetrics and paternity covered ? And other coverage's one might not need. Under Progressive control the American middle class is worse off yet you don't see it. This is not your country I served and took an oath to protect against foreign and domestic , To protect the constitution . Tell me what service have you given your country in a patriotic form. Progressives have no patriotism only a distain for Flag God and Family.”

“All I could afford was my "garbage" plan. It simply kept me from losing my home if I were critically ill. That's all I wanted! This new policy has more than doubled my cost. I will now have to drop out and just pay the fine! If something terrible comes up....guess who's going to pay my bill? YOU, and other tax payers. I was trying to be responsible. Now that is not possible.
Who are YOU to tell ME what plan I should have????”

“But many Americans "like" garbage plans, and the President said they could keep them . . .”

DaveP326 on Nov 14, 2013 at 22:12:24

“If they happen to like their "garbage" plans, who the hell is the US gov't. to tell them they have to give them up? We're talking about the gov't. TAKING OVER 1/6 of our entire economy. Another term is "nationalizing the health care insurance - and by extension, health care, itself. Ask people in the UK how that's working for them. This ACA requires that young, healthy people enroll and pay into gov't. insurance in order to pay for older, unhealthy Americans. Can't you see that this will eventually drive private insurers out of business? No private company can compete with the unlimited resources of the gov't. It's not THEIR money. If a private insurance company spent $600M and 3 years to roll out a completely new insurance program, and it flopped like the ACA is flopping, those responsible would be fired. That would be Sebelius and those computer geeks that set up a non-functioning website, and others. It would also include the CEO who repeatedly assured people that it would be cheaper and better, but if they liked what they had they could keep what they had, all of which is untrue. In the real world, you can't screw up and lie, like these people did, and keep your job. This is not the function of government. What they should've done, I think, would be to mandate to the industry minimum standards for health insurance. The companies could offer the minimum, an higher, but not less than the minimum.”

ddoddr9623 on Nov 14, 2013 at 22:11:32

“Young people are choosing more and more to opt for paying the penalty over expensive plans, hence no health plans at all. The ACA plan is not working and is in a death sprial. The ACA cannot pay for itself as promised.”

aabmhbetty on Nov 14, 2013 at 22:11:27

“Have you seen their health care plans? If not, then shut up, you don't know what you're talking about. This was Obama's plan all along. He knew these millions of people were going to lose their insurance. He knew it would force them to sign up for Obamacare. I hope it all backfires on them. This is American, we are a free country and no one should be forced into buying anything they do not want. This is not some little 3rd world country, although it seems that's what Obama would like us to be.”

“these are the same people that bemoaned what would happen if we ended up with "socialized medicine" like canada or europe. they don't want their taxes to go up to cover it, but are more than willing to pony up hundreds and thousands of dollars each month for coverage that may drop them if they have the audacity to get sick. what kind of stupid pill are people taking?”
