What arrogance! When asked if 'everyone' is wrong; Obama answers "yes." What a moron. Yeah only a liberal thinks they're right and the whole world is wrong. That's why they still think loser Al Gore should have won the presidency even though he didn't get the majority of votes. Liberals can't win anything without cheating or using intimidation or worse.

Old Blue; typical foul-mouthed, deceitful, pathetic, irate, unsympathetic, intolerant, radical, extremist liberal bully! Expects others to be tolerant but they don't have to be. Yet scream about 'equality' and fairness. HA! Funny. We're not seeing any equality or fairness from this administration full of common thieves.

Democrats and Obama won't say how many citizens 'signed up' for their pathetic taxation called Obamacare. It's because majority DID NOT!!!

Even WDTV's poll asking will you sign up showed 81 percent stating NO! LOL.

Old Blue, you put way too much trust in pajama bloggers and the Huff. you need to expand your research sources. The ones you're using are lying (Obama is the liar in chief), and all you're doing is repeating them. Shame on you.

Tell me seeker what isn't true . All we hear from you and magix is those lazy ,welfare liberals. Hence,I got mine. F*ck the country. The other posts are straight from Bloomberg so maybe it is you that needs the psychological exam since you can't remember your own rants and don't believe any thing that is printed unless it is in line with your way of thinking.

The web ads come from a group called Generation Opportunity, also backed by the Koch brothers. While the group hasn’t bought any television time, it plans to spend $750,000 to promote the ads and on a national tour in the next couple of months, according to David Pasch, its communications director. Under the law, the individual mandate to purchase insurance applies to almost everyone, so it isn’t possible to opt out.

In one ad, an oversized Uncle Sam pops up at the foot of the examination table of a woman with her legs in stirrups. “Don’t let government play doctor,” the announcer says as the woman screams. Then Uncle Sam waves and cranks a speculum.

Another features a young man lying on his side with a bare back as Uncle Sam appears snapping blue plastic surgical gloves.

What’s turned people off is probably more likely the residue of hundreds of millions of dollars of negative advertising and negative opinion and business press, practically unanswered until just recently,”

In the meantime, a number of outside groups, including Americans for Prosperity, a nonprofit co-founded by the billionaire industrialist Koch brothers, have been buying air time to advertise against the law.

One ad, which the group began running in Ohio and Virginia on July 9, features a mother named Julie whose son suffers from seizures. She asks “if we can’t pick our own doctor, how do I know my family’s going to get the care they need?” The law doesn’t prevent people from choosing their own doctors, though there may be out-of-network costs and individuals may be limited in their choice of plans by their budgets.

A 40 percent plurality doesn’t know enough about the law to say what effect it will have on them. That’s after critics have outspent supporters by as much as 5 to 1, according to CMAG, which estimates $500 million has been spent on political and advocacy ads related to the law in the past three years.

What is an "outsider" to this area. These "outsiders" are the ones TRYING to cause chaos and discord in our beautiful state. Too bad all they're doing is causing all the dems in WV to change their party and vote more conservatives in office. Notice how republicans increased in govt in WV since these dem-wits arrived?? They can't see it. Please keep your angry, immoral selves public WHAT.....it's working ..... for the conservative party. Priceless!

From Forbes today, regarding the impact of Obamacare:

Between 2014 and 2022, the increase in national health spending (which the Medicare actuaries specifically attribute to the law) amounts to $7,450 per family of 4.

This from Bloomberg today:

The increase in newly insured patients arrives at a time when the nation has 15,230 fewer primary-care doctors than it needs, according to an Aug. 28 assessment by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. And emergency rooms report being strained with visits that have risen at twice the rate of population growth.

“It’s like we’re handing out bus tickets and the bus is already full,” said Perry Pugno, vice president for medical education at the American Academy of Family Physicians, by telephone. “The shortfall of primary-care access is not an insignificant problem, and it’s going to get worse.”

what, the only thing that's "nonsense" is your comment.

The GOP suggested a lot of changes to Obamacare, and none were adopted. Not one Republican voted for it, and the only way Obama and Reid could get it passed is to sweeten the pot (bribery)for Democrats in Congress.

The Supreme Court case did not address the law in general; it was specific, and the ruling was 5-4, thanks to Roberts saying the penalty for not signing up was really a "tax." The legislative history showed it was not a "tax," so Roberts was dead wrong.

Republicans have passed a continuing resolution that funds government, minus Obamacare, so if the Democrats reject the resolution, they, and they alone, will be shutting down government.

Now, address points made by Mr. Moore. Obamacare is a disaster, and you haven't offered anything to refute that.

Your support of Obama and Obamacare is irrational, which is typical of most of your posts.

The idea that "if Democrats balk, they could cause a government shutdown" is nonsense. The ACA was passed and cleared by the Supreme Court. Hijacking the economy as a last ditch effort to undo it is*******near treason. The Republicans should look to what happened to Newt Gingrich's political career the last time the government's function was held hostage or maybe not. The Teaparty could go the same way he did and good riddance.

The ACA needs to be fine tuned not dumped. Much of what is wrong with it is there because the Republicans wouldn't let it pass in its original form. Now they want to complain. They should have gone with the Public Option.

play and old blue, did you read Mr. Moore's column? Care to respond to any of his points?

I thought the cutting back at the Cleveland Clinic was the clincher. If you have a serious illness and you are cared for at the clinic, chances are the quality of the care you're going to receive will diminish.

Medicare compensation to health care providers is going to drop. That's one of the reasons why do a lot of doctors are going to retire early.

You are both so invested in the Obama that you can't tell the truth, let alone acknowledge it.

Your class envy is appalling. At one time in this country, kids worked hard in school and after graduation in order to advance their economic status. It was called the work ethic. Today, you want equal results regardless of whether someone has earned what they make. In your eyes, a brain surgeon should make as much as an auto mechanic.

You both are exhibit A of what's wrong in the nation today.
