Obama: Most People Will Be Better
Off, "They Don´t Necessarily Know
It Right Now"

Real Clear Politics, by Ian Schwartz

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/8/2013 1:06:11 PM

PRESIDENT OBAMA: You know, I regret very much that what we intended to do, which is to make sure that everybody is moving into better plans because they want ´em, as opposed to because they´re forced into it. That, you know, we weren´t as clear as we needed to be in terms of the changes that were taking place. And I want to do everything we can to make sure that people are finding themselves in a good position -- a better position than they were before this law happened. Keep in mind that most of the folks who are

Comments:
What is so absolutely shocking about this outrageous statement is that he will never, ever acknowledge that all of this was caused by him. He insults every American by acting like they are too stupid to realize this. What makes it worse is that Chuck Todd sat their like a lump and allows him go get away with this. It´s enough to make your head explode.

"Mr. President, in a hypothetical situation where this turns out to not be the case, what will you do then?"

If we had a functioning Press, which was something Jefferson was counting upon when he did so much to build what we know, that is a question which would be asked.

It´s funny - tragically strange-: These are almost the exact words Hitlers henchmen used to convince threatened and abused Jews to voluntarily be shipped off to "Relocation Camps" before the really nasty stuff started. They even made propaganda films, showing the jews in lovely cabins in the mountains, having pick-nicks and dances- thousands of Jews signed up for it.

Lies lead to more lies and then final solutions.

Obama´s idiocy apparently knows no bounds. Here I am with a policy I have to give up ~ because it no longer has useable hospitalization ~ and everything but my base copayment is fully paid by the federal government.

This one even had the sort of clinic system so beloved by Michelle Obama ~ with affiliated laboratory and pharmacy. Plus an eye center just for the retina.

It used local hospitals with world class facilities and many of the top specialists in the world had privileges there ~ even offices! Facilities were all convenient with plenty of parking!

This policy IS the gold plated federal government employee/retiree policy and ObamaKKKare trashed it like yesterday´s twinky wrapper.

Folks, it ain´t getting better, and there´s no conceivable single payer operation any government could ever create.

Whatever sort of conspiracy is afoot, it is inescapable that Obama and his crowd are CRAZY and should be locked up

Thank God for Obama. Before he showed up we didn´t know what to eat, how to choose an insurance plan, how to heat or cool our homes, what kind of car to buy. And on and on and....on. I had no idea how ignorant and helpless we were before Obama.

The Poser of US in public: "Most People Will Be Better Off, ´They Don´t Necessarily Know It Right Now´"

The Poser of US in private: "We no it´s not true, that´s why we exempted congress and their staff."

All joking aside, that should be the only response to anyone who defends 0bamacare, "If it´s so great, why the select exemptions?"

"THEY DON´T NECESSARILY KNOW IT RIGHT NOW?"

I am choking with rage, the veins in my neck are sticking out, and I feel like I´m going to have a coronary. I have never been so angry. This man is a stinking bold faced LIAR and his arrogance is so extreme that narcissism doesn´t come close to being descriptive. He and everyone kissing his bony arse beginning with the muslim traitor Valerie Jarrett are co-conspirators in the destruction of our country. To this add what Netanyahu has just said about Iran, Barry´s lifting of sanctions we never even knew about and what HIS plans now include... then add all the executive orders we don´t even know exist and all that´s done and can´t be undone...I don´t know where to even go with all that should be terrifying to anyone in the free world.

When, oh when, oh when will ANYONE in congress take this monster on and look him in the face, call him a STINKING LIAR? I feel as though I´m building the steps that lead to the scaffold where I´ll be hung for having done nothing.

I am sick of these expression! "Most, some, it is only, "
What do these statements say, they only confuse the issue! Take the 5% only 15 million, individual policies cancelled!, the true number is very much higher i . e. As each individual policy may include spouse, children or other dependents.
Smart people hiding facts from a population that does not know or care about reality!

President Jive.
Having outmanuevered F&F, Benghazi and IRS scandals he, and/or his handlers, believe they can just jive their way through this ObamaCare disaster. In fact it´s an ever growing cluster of disasters. When I was in the service they had a name for hopeless situations ill-conceived and riddled with problems... They called it a Cluster something or other.

Anything Obama says about Obamacare is total BS.
For him to say anything, he would have had to read it.
As lazy as he is I doubt he has read a single page.
No one could possibly read the complete law and be able to understand it completely. It is thousands of pages filled with conflicting rules.
When Obama speaks is is simply trying to sell something he knows almost nothing about.
The law was designed to fail down the road, so he and his minions could come out with a single payer system to "save the day".
The problem is that cant even pass a law that will work long enought to fail!
This has got to be a bad dream!

#11, whatever Congress and their staff got exempted from it didn´t help.

They mostly all sign up for Kaiser because there´s a Capitol Hill center, or a $2 cab ride away there´s Kaiser´s West End operation.

However, they live in Virginia, and that´s where their friends and families live and if they get hospitalized that´s going to be 75 miles away in Baltimore from now on.

Obamakkkare took away their insurance, their doctor and their hospital! So how is that being exempted from anything?

Seems to me Senator Grassley screwed all of them.

The Marxist Dictatorship of the Proletariat: a temporary measure whereby the enlightened revolutionary comrades take over and make decisions in the best interest of the workers until the latter are relieved of their False Consciousness which causes them to choose against their best interests. The revolutionary comrades know what is in the best interests of the workers and only desire to do good, unlike the capitalist exploiters and their tools in the bourgeoisie. The workers will thank them when they enjoy the fruits of the comrade´s labors. They always do, in every communist and socialist society that has succeeded in achieving social and economic justice.

#24, I don´t truly do not understand your point.

My point is that if we´ll be better off, why shouldn´t congress and their staffers be better off.

Millions of Americans have had their lives turned upside down by this disaster. Why should I, or anyone else care if they live and VA and no longer have hospitals in their area. Nobody gives a flying F if the great unwashed is screwed over.

The law should be applied to every citizen equally, no exceptions. Screw congress and their staff, they should have read it before passing it. Thanks to these dispecible people, I´m now paying 75% more for coverage I don´t need or want with an increase in deductible of $8500; oh and by the way, I can´t even keep my freaking doctor.

I know it now, I´ve been fed a big old crap sandwich and I´m furious.

Many huge corporations have already announced that they will drop health insurance for their employees when the waiver time is over. Currently, it costs more than $5,000 to insure an employee. The penalty for dropping said employee is $2,000. Of course, this was planned to fail.

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs.

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

A white driver taking Ohio Democratic Rep. Louis Stokes to his meeting was admitted without an ID-check. A staffer´s memo to Clinton a week later warned the president about the incident before a scheduled photo-op including Stokes and the mayor of a Cleveland suburb.

The Department of Health and Human Services is proposing a rule that would, if implemented, guarantee that even more Americans who like their health insurance plans cannot keep them. Fixed indemnity plans, which pay insured customers a set amount towards medical expenses and are often cost-effective relative to more comprehensive health insurance, are popular forms of coverage, and potentially becoming more popular in the wake of Obamacare. Health insurance industry representatives say that fixed indemnity plans have been attracting more interest as many Americans look for a

She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his
