GOPstructionist Filibastards Fear ObamaCare

Look at the south, the bastion of the GOPster's base. What if all those poor uninsured folks suddenly realized that they could get access to affordable healthcare for themselves and their families, thanks to President Obama and the Democrats? 

What if they then woke up from their FuxSnooze and realized that it was the Republicon Party and their Teabagger faction that fought tooth and nail to deny that necessity for a decent quality of life for them and their families? 

That's got to scare the livin' crap out of the Greedy Oligarch's Party!
"The real issue is not the size of government, the issue is who the government is working for." - Robert Reich. When people see what the Affordable Care Act does for them the Republicons will have to throw the term they invented out of irrational scorn and derision, "Obamacare" Down the Memory Hole, lest the American People be reminded of who actually worked to better their interests.

Now look below at the most common occupations among the uninsured, cooks, wait staff, clerks, nursing aides, maids, you know all the people that are subsidizing your middle class lifestyle through serving you cheap stuff by foregoing the "luxury" of healthcare and a living wage! 

And don't get me started on the GOPocrisy of the Crisis Conservatives, who repeatedly proclaim that Compromise is a Dirty Word, are now crying for "Negotiation"!

Wait a tick, what are the TPs putting on the table? NOTHING! How about reasonable immigration reform? NOPE! Raise the minimum wage? NOPE, NADA! Yeah it's dirty a word for them in their starched white shirts, but we're supposed to be the ones who stir up the dirt.

What you, sean, and the left don't seem to understand is the way economics effects behavior. The AHCA will have a large chunk of the American people buying insurance only when they are sick (remember, you can get insurance now no matter what pre-existing condition you have). The penalties for not buying insurance are much less than coverage even at "Bronze" levels, so why would any fool buy insurance when they are not yet sick? The AHCA, providing uninsurance for Americans for 5 days now. Heh.

Sorry Nemo, looks like you've swallowed another brew of FuxSnooze swill, you can't just sign up when you or a family member get sick. The period when you can sign up for 2014 is 6 months long, and in future years will be just over two months. Below is the info right off the ACA website. Read it and weep.

Open Enrollment Period: The period of time during which individuals who are eligible to enroll in a Qualified Health Plan can enroll in a plan in the Marketplace. For 2014, the Open Enrollment Period is October 1, 2013–March 31, 2014. For 2015 and later years, the Open Enrollment Period is October 15 to December 7 of the previous year.

Only stupid deluded people like you will refuse to take Personal Responsibility and put themselves and their family at risk, pay for the privilege to do so and get nothing in return for their money.

Right sean, nobody will sign up for the ACA, get a checkup to make sure they are all good, then drop out only to repeat the process in a year. In the meantime I'm loving the health insurance sticker shock stories from Obama voters. Heh.

Only dishonest fools who want to gamble with the health and finances of themselves and their families.

You dishonest fool you.
