I guess no healthcare coverage is better in the GOP eyes. You see when we are all poor and helpless while the rich age richer and stronger they'll finally get the "Have all or have nothing" society minus middleclass that these jokers and the Koch Brothers have been working for. The statements made in this column is nothing but pure propaganda,"pied piper" politics. They get those of you who refuse to read the "affordable healthcare act" and those whose just listen to Fox news to follow them unaware that they are in for the biggest screwover of their lives.

Play, you said that right. No one checks things out for themselves they believe their favorite politican,news show,or buddy. Remember when "death panels" was the topic of the day until it was proven to be FALSE. The same people that brought us that are LIE are the ones that are scaring every body now.

Remember how Obama and Pelosi and all those crazy radical nuts in the democrat party screamed and threw fits of insanity when the PEOPLE read the obamacare bill online and SAW the death panels listed right there? Sarah Palin was MORE HONEST than any democrat. Truth came out and now one of the authors which is a democrat who helped write the stupid bill.......is claiming its a DISASTER waiting to happen. Democrats sure are stupid. Now they are degrading their own bill. Stupid is as stupid does. Dems--dumber than a box of rocks.

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!

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’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.

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.

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.

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; 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.

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.
