Newly Insured, Many Now
Face Learning Curve

New York Times, by Abby Goodnough

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/3/2014 1:17:51 AM

PHILADELPHIA — Advocates of the Affordable Care Act, focused until now on persuading people to buy health insurance, have moved to a crucial new phase: making sure the eight million Americans who did so understand their often complicated policies and use them properly. The political stakes are high, as support for the health care law will hinge at least partly on whether people have good experiences with their new coverage. Advocates of the law also say teaching the newly insured how to be smart health care consumers could advance the law’s central goal of keeping costs down, such as by

Not exactly. Some are too busy trying to find a doctor willing to take their insurance after paying for months. Now they are getting increases in the premium.

Many Now Face Learning Curve - Say WHAT ??

You mean they didn´t know what they were buying before they bought it? Something like, some moron saying that you have to pass it to know what´s in it ??

Now they get to find out that their Dr. isn´t on the list of approved Doctors - the facility they go to, near their home, is not on the approved list - so when the kid falls down they have to pay everything out of pocket - before the Doctor will see the kid.

Better yet, they find out the Dr. visit IS covered. But, the deductible is $7,000.00 before the insurance kicks in.

How do you pass a Health Care bill and not hire any Doctors? But, do hire, 11,000 new IRS agents? It may not be a Health Care bill...

These peoples problems are just beginning. Pennsylvania does not have a state health care exchange. That means that they will have to pay back the subsidies they got for the health care they didn´t get but have been paying for. Obamacare has just begun to cripple the health care industry. And it´s users!!

Nice try, Abby of the NY Slimes. No amount of pretty paper and bows is going to make BarryCare a success. It was rotten to the core to begin with and it rots more every day that it exists.

No, my fellow L-Dotters, you all have it WRONG. The problem is that Barky and Nancy didn´t ´SPLAIN it enough...it´s a MESSAGING problem.

Need I say, the preceding was a heapin´ helpin´ of sarcasm on a soggy Sunday morning. I only pray for some Republicans with some spines to stand up to this, and a Republican Senate starting Jan 2015 to take down this monster.

(Video) On Friday´s broadcast of MSNBC´s "Morning Joe," host Joe Scarborough took aim at Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) for his instance on attacking the billionaire Koch Brothers on a regular basis, but isn´t without fault himself. "[It is] sad and pathetic when somebody calls a person un-American especially when they are bigger offenders of the action he defines as un-American,” Scarborough said. Scarborough pointed to the fundraising prowess of Reid, whose so-called Senate Majority PAC dominates the charts on individual spending for the 2013-2014 with $32 million in expenditures, an $8 million advantage over the next closest competitor,

   

 



 
Obama’s useful reminder

President Obama is not popular at this point in his presidency, even in a blue state like Minnesota. Our own Senator Al Franken repeatedly bristled as GOP candidate Mike McFadden cited Franken’s 97 percent voting record in support of Obama at their debate in Duluth earlier this week. Franken mocked the statistic but didn’t offer a correction. That’s because the statistic is correct and because any purported correction would be even more damning if it came from Franken. The 97 percent figure is a good one to use. It doesn’t come from a partisan source; it comes from Congressional Quarterly.

The Associated Press’ Washington bureau chief is the latest journalist to criticize the Obama administration for failing to live up to its promise of transparency. “Bush was not fantastic,” Sally Buzbee recently told a meeting of journalists. “The [Obama] administration is significantly worse than previous administrations.” Buzbee detailed eight ways the Obama administration is restricting access to information at a joint meeting of the American Society of News Editors, the Associated Press Media Editors and the Associated Press Photo Managers.

Talking about “civility,” or what used to be called good manners until good manners disappeared, has become the rage in certain unlikely precincts in America. Talking about civility may be the next Big Thing. Both Democrats and Republicans have prescribed a dose of civility to restore amiability to Washington, but Harry Reid is nobody’s idea of a man a Republican would sit down to supper with without a squad of Marines to guard his back. Nevertheless, some unlikely suspects are trying to light a firecracker in the dark. The Station, a restaurant in Bernardsville, N.J., is paying people to be

GOP 2016: What about Bobby Jindal?

A few months ago, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal traveled to Washington to introduce a new national health care proposal. While there, he arranged to meet privately with a small group of conservative journalists and policy experts at the offices of the Ethics and Public Policy Center think tank. Some of the experts engaged Jindal in debate about one of the plan´s more arcane provisions. The back-and-forth between Jindal and his questioners went deep into the proposal´s details, and it was soon clear that Jindal could dive as far into the health care policy weeds as any of the wonkiest wonks.

GOLDEN, Colo. -- A suburban Denver school board refused to back off a proposed review of the Advanced Placement U.S. history course on Thursday despite waves of protest from dozens of students, parents and residents who accused the board´s new conservative majority of trying to influence children with their political views. Instead, the Jefferson County board voted 3-2 to expand the membership on two existing curriculum review committees to include students, parents and administrators.

President Obama was interrupted Thursday evening during a speech to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute gala by a protester heckling him to move sooner on immigration. As Obama attempted to reassure frustrated Latinos that he would take up executive action on immigration reform this year, an undocumented activist named Blanca Hernandez cut him off twice, yelling, "We need relief now!" “If anybody wants to know where my heart is, or whether I want to have this fight, let me put those questions to rest right now: I am not going to give up this fight until it gets done,” Obama

With embattled Democrats already doing everything they can to make November´s election not about Barack Obama - given his terrible poll numbers - the Democrat-in-Chief´s ego appears to have gotten the best of him during an address at Northwestern University. "I am not on the ballot this fall. Michelle´s pretty happy about that. But make no mistake: these policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them," said Obama. As Cole Avery, of NOLA.com and The Times-Picayune points out, "The president´s position can´t be welcomed news to Democratic candidates around the nation, including Louisiana´s Mary Landrieu, who are fighting

On Thursday evening, President Barack Obama promised Hispanic leaders executive amnesty and vowed that he will not give up his fight for permanent amnesty for illegal immigrants. However, he also conceded that more work needed to be done to win public support because the American people do not support such legislation. Speaking at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Dinner, Obama said he would enact his executive amnesty between the November elections and the end of this year and reiterated that it "was not a question of if but when." But he asked Latinos to convince more Americans to back a more

My last article for American Thinker was too long. And too short. Too long because the gurus tell us articles should be about 600 words. My story about the president talking to the black caucus about white people inflicting constant racial injustice on black people came in at 1500 words. I was just getting warmed up. I thought it strange that at the same time the president was trying to persuade us that black people are relentless victims, black people were committing acts of racial violence in places like Seattle, Miami, Indianapolis, Bronx, Ferguson, Kansas City, Providence, Minneapolis and 18 miles from where

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

President Obama this week committed professional suicide. Let me explain. There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished. The reason being that by creating so many enemies ‘outside the tent’, the tent itself becomes too deluged with poisonous bile to avoid sinking into a quagmire of back-stabbing ignominy. Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people. He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus

Count House Speaker John Boehner as a fan of Jeb Bush for president. He also hasn´t spoken to Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in two years. The driving issue of the 2016 election will be “competence,” and if former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush runs, “he’s got a real shot” at winning, the Ohio Republican told the Cincinnati Enquirer on Tuesday. Boehner applauded Bush’s ability to “talk about Republican issues better than most anybody that we’ve got out there,” approving of his “real record of reform” as Florida’s governor from 1999 to 2007. He also called potential candidates Ohio Gov. John

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

HOUSTON, Texas -- Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay was found not guilty today by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. This is the highest appellate court in Texas for criminal cases and thus brings DeLay’s political persecution to an end. The court upheld the ruling last year from the Texas 3rd Court of Appeals. That decision tossed out the convictions on money laundering and conspiracy charges. At that time Justice Melissa Goodwin wrote “The fundamental problem with the state´s case was its failure to prove proceeds of criminal activity,” according to a September 19th report on Breitbart News.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) talks to a lot of people in the course of doing his job, but for some reason, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) isn’t one of them, how very curious. “I’ve not talked to him since he’s been elected,” Boehner revealed in an interview with the Cincinnati Enquirer, and left it at that. Cruz was elected in 2012 and played a major role in recent events that threatened to derail Boehner’s agenda, like the times Cruz attempted to hijack down the federal government over Obamacare, the debt ceiling, border patrol, etc. Boehner didn’t elaborate further, according to
