Reid: More funding needed to prevent ObamaCare from becoming 'train wreck' (Mo Money!) |
The Hill ^ | 05/01/13 | Alexander Bolton

Posted on 05/02/2013 7:12:11 AM PDT by AngelesCrestHighway

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says he shares colleagues’ concerns that the Affordable Care Act could become a “train wreck” if it’s not implemented properly.

Reid warned that people will not be able to choose health insurance plans on government health exchanges if federal authorities lack the resources to set them up and educate the public.

Hey Harry!

Just use all of the money that Obamacare “saved”, to pay for the remaining implementation......

Yup no federal money for exchanges and some stupid GOP governor and legislators set up the state exchanges, which are in reality, controlled by the federal government..

My only wish is that the train runs over Harry before it wrecks and I hope that Obama and his claque of leftist cretins are standing right by him.

Of course. I mean, duh. Virtually everything we “haters” said would transpire is transpiring before our eyes. But they will keep forging on. Because that is what they do.

Wasn't it supposed to save gobs and gobs of money and make insurance available and affordable to everyone?
No? Was that just the sales pitch?
We're left with an extremely expensive and complicated product that just won't work and no amount of repair will ever make it worth while.
Only government can screw up this bad and this big.
We need a lemon law for legislations. And legislators.

Obamacare is a bottomless money pit that is the coup de grace to finish off America. Unfortunately, the Crapweasels in Congress seem to have dropped “no” (in word & deed) from their lexicon.

o late Hairy!...The train wreck occured the day your Boy was elected...

I remember very distinctly political writers and analysts saying that Obamacare would cost much more than the sales price of "LESS THAN $ ONE TRILLION DOLLARS" which is what Hussein told Congress in order to get it passed. The public was told "Hey the CBO can only use the numbers given to them, and cannot take into account other assumptions". (wish I could find some of those 2009 articles, but you heard it also I am sure).

ObamaCare heading north at full speed and Amnesty heading south at full speed on the same track. This is going to get ugly.

Barry: “The healthcare bill will save money.”

Harry: “We need more money for the healthcare bill.”

Makes sense to me.

I think he’s trying to wreck America so badly that it can never recover and that’s intentional. He’s like an abusive husband with a wife (all the 0 supporters) that won’t leave him. They believe everything he tells them. The left has a bad case of Stockholm Syndrome.

The train wreak has happened. I have been in and out of the hospitals with my mother the last two years, she is 80 years old and it is a mess.

The hospital has “house” doctors and that is who you see. A house doctor told me, they go to a group of doctors to discuss your health and then another group of doctors, all these doctors decide what to do with you. We never see our regular doctors.

Maybe he can dip into his obscene personal fortune, money collected above and beyond his salary as a Senator, to help the train wreck.

Yep, even though this nearly 3,000 page bill has already generated over 20,000 pages of regulations and added nearly 200 new taxes the expected disaster isn’t the fault of the Mastermind. Instead, it is because someone else isn’t capable of proper implementation and if they do implement it properly, then it is your fault for not paying enough in taxes!

No matter the result of centralized, top down, iron fisted control, the Mastermind will ALWAYS deflect blame. If at all possible, the Mastermind will direct that blame to their opponents. Heck, we would have utopia if we just didn’t have opponents standing in the way of progress! If the commoner doesn’t like being controlled, then we simply need to “educate” them until they do like it. What has history shown us as the methodology to “educate” those that do not bend their will to the Mastermind’s dictates?

federal authorities lack the resources to...educate the public.

Does that just sound Orwellian enough?

When will the “No Balls” in Congress stand up to this? For Gods sake It’s our country going down the shitter here!!! Hello, Anyone home?????

The GOP-e Leadership - so called - in the US House will be the first to tell all us that they have voted to repeal Obamacare at least (fill in blank) times, but "Oh whoa is us - you rubes only gave us control of 1/2 of 1/3 of the Corruption District, so we cannot make it happen!!"

But what did they do when
1) multiple Continuing Resolutions,
2) multiple Debt Ceiling negotiations,
3) sequestration 4) extending the "Bush" tax cuts.

And what was the GOP-e Leadership's Position when they held a Royal Flush in their hands?

Boehner: House Will Fund Obamacare in CR; Won't Risk 'Shutting Down the Government'

I personally am way past supporting anyone in the GOP at the national level.

And don’t all spending bills originate in the House? So they could...ya know....cut off the money if they wanted to?

I ask the question because I’m not up on all the bits of the Constitution that we selectively ignore nowadays.

ABSOLUTELY!!! That is the point I have been trying to make for 2+ years. The GOP runs the House - when those four items come up on the calendar, they are sitting in the cat bird seat. ALL CONTROL OVER WHETHER TO FUND OR NOT RESIDES WITH BONER. HE IS GUTLESS AND WILL NOT DEFUND ANYTHING OF SIGNIFICANCE. And then comes out and hold press congerences bragging about how THEY cur spending!!! What bullsh$%.

Not really a prediction. If I said the Sun was going to rise next Tuesday is that a prediction?

We have two choices: (1) the punishingly expensive train wreck currently scheduled, or (2) an even more expensive train wreck with an added cost equal to whatever we dump into that terrible program but no compensatory benefits. I wish I could be confident on where Speaker Boehner would stand.
