“Yeah, yeah, yeah. We know he's a sellout. Now what? Hopefully he doesn't do any more damage before he leaves.
Honestly, this just says to me that corporations owns the Presidency. He's their lap dog. And they didn't even vote for him (corporations are people too...). Heck, they didn't even contribute to his campaign so WHY would he do this?”
“This seems to be a PR move by the insurance companies to discredit Obamacare. Like with all transactions people get receipts and confirmations that they've signed up for these programs. It doesn't matter if the insurance company "claims" they are receiving gobledygoop instead of insurer information. They're still going to have to cover these people.”

“Nope, they do not have to cover anyone who has not completed the enrollment. That includes payment of the first premium. And your argument has no teeth, the insurance companies that chose to stay with Obamacare seek to make a profit, a greedy, greedy, capitalist profit! So, for them to want it to fail is ridiculous.”

“The insurance companies also have a problem with Obamacare because it is going to affect the huge profits that they make off the backs of their insured. I believe that with anything new you have problems that have to be ironed out and at some point there may need to be adjustments made. There is no one size fits all and nothing is going to make everyone happy but I believe that Obamacare is a step in the right direction and is something that has needed to be done for a long time. I think Repubs are just upset that they didn't come up with it.”

“cover "these people" based on what? If they are not getting the info on who they are to cover??”

“oh yeah.....it's the insurance companies making things up to discredit the law that gives them millions.....that's it”
“"But insurance companies are still getting information on their would-be customers that is garbled and incomplete, and in some cases they are getting no information at all."
People in the Obama administration are trying to sabotage this website. They're hacking it. Making it not work. I am unanimous in this opinion. What's odd to me is why isn't the President breaking his foot off into some people's assets and firing them. He seems to be highly adverse to conflicts and would rather avoid it and let the problem fester than fire people and fix it.”

“He is too busy directing the packing for his trip to Hawaii in a couple weeks. Priorities, my dear.”
“again... she's working IN Walmart. Doesn't matter if she works for Walmart or an independent company. They HID her in Walmart for almost 8 years. Exactly the place you would put that person. I'm glad she has a job, but come on, you know why they have her at Walmart. And please don't tell me it's a southern Walmart (is it?). That would make even more sense. I get your argument but come on...”

“well, it was the only stores that this demo company had ANY employee in...they now have other grocery stores and she is now in Krogers...
We live in TX...and frankly, most women in the south are not awful looking...I have lived in the mid-west, and from europe and think if you look around at where you work, you can find plenty of folks who think you are not that hot as well as you thinking the same thing...
if looks guaranteed a person a job, Mitch McConnell would be living on the streets as well as Cruz and Louis Gohmert”
“Wow! Great pictures. Was it hard getting into the caves? Do you have to rappel?”
Katy Giorgio on Dec 5, 2013 at 12:27:34
“Thanks! It's not too hard if you know where you're going. People get lost all the time going there because the trail isn't very well defined in spots. You don't have to rappel in, but there's a big hole that has opened up that people rappel down into for fun. I have just walked into the cave.”
“You just proved her point. Low paying, workers right breaking, image challenged Walmart IS the company that hires people like her.”

“again...i should have written this better...the woman works for a company who does demos in walmart-she does not work for walmart...she works a 24 hour week and makes $15 per hour...not much, but a damn sight better than walmart pays their workers who only get 14 hours per week”
“What's going to be interesting is if he tries to cut Social Security benefits in his grand bargain. He can't possibly say he's concerned about income equality while simultaneously backing Chained CPI cuts on Social Security. And this is his dilemma. He says one thing and does the complete opposite two weeks later.”
“Anything this President says about income equality rings empty to me because he's had sooo many opportunities to address the issues. Now he's just paying lip service, I believe, because of Elizabeth Warren's repeated thrashing of the banks, the Pope's speech on income equality and a recent report addressing how I.E. is what's holding this country down.
It just makes him looks like an opportunist, again, rather than jumping ahead of the issue and taking it by the horns.”

“I'm afraid I have to agree with you on that score. The banality "too little, too late" applies here.”
“I thought Elan Gale was a woman from the start so that's how I perceived the story. I didn't think it was wrong when the female Elan Gale did it and I don't think it's wrong now that I know Elan is a man.
Matter of fact, I wouldn't have believed the story at all if I knew a guy tweeted it.”

“I know, right? I thought Elan was a woman at first due to him using descriptions and words more commonly used by women. Didn't bother me either way.
However, hearing it was made up makes me feel odd. Sorting through the feeling for its source... though it might simply have to do with being chumped. Nothing to do with sexism.”
