Later today, King FUBO gets to defile Cleveland and do a fundraiser in Philadelphia on the taxpayer’s dime (though the official schedule shows that only as “delivering remarks”).

It’s good to be the king.

“Today is likely the result of the democrats that went whining to their master about the election beatings they are getting ready for.”

WE HAVE A WINNER, FOLKS...
Campaign’s for 2014 are being set-up. right now. This is surely weighing heavily on Democrats deciding to run for offices on all levels in 2014, and that is ALL they give a damn about.

An administrative fix means that the Secretary shall deem whatever she feels like deeming, because the law says that she can.

Of course, she will deem whatever Jarrett tells her to deem.

Yep. The Dems and special interest lobbyists wrote this 2700 page monstrosity that transferred an immense amount of power from the legislative branch to the executive branch. The Dems plan on holding the Presidency for generations.

So sorry... can’t attend. Since my vacuum cleaner broke, I have to pick the doggie hairs out of my carpet by hand, so i will be otherwise engaged.

I have to go sort my compost pile.

“House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that President Barack Obama will offer a fix to Obamacare problems as soon as today.

“I think it can be done administratively. The president will offer a proposal today, is my understanding,””

Translation:

THE GOD-KING OBAMA will urinate upon his loyal sycophants in the Media that the Individual Mandate will be delayed until after the 2014 elections, by Imperial Decree.

Anyone that thinks this isn’t a fix, but rather a delay, is a racist, and likely even worse, A CHRISTIAN...

The 2,700 pages that which needed to be passed to see what's in it was only the "Contents" of the law. That $hit heap has grown to over 20,000 pages since the "Rule Writers" under the HHS Secretary have imposed their orders.

Dana Bash reports Obama will let people keep their insurance for one year. ADMINISTRATIVELY.

So he just admitted Ocare is a complete mess.

It’s curious that Obama never goes on television and soberly addresses the nation from the Oval Office like most other Presidents do on important matters. He always wants a staged scene that shows him commanding the room of people. Has he ever done a speech from the Oval??

Someone just posted this on the articles, worth mentionin,g Obama cannot do this......

1- What Obama is proposing is illegal. It goes against the Affordable care act.
This must go through Congress & senate.
2- What Obama is proposing will be impossible for Health insurance companies to comply with. It takes a min of 3 months to set up Eligibility, benefits and new member ID cards. States regulate insurance programs and need (for the most part) sign off to offer such plans.
3- Plan will not be able to offer and won’t offer people their old plans. This will blow up their risk pools.
This is all an attempt to deflect blame from Obama/Democrats to “evil insurance companies.”
Democrats need to vote for the Upton Bill and codify this into law and not just for 2014.

Interesting.
Will certainly be a scramble for the insurance carriers to re-boot everything.

But the good news is we’ll get all the millions of new medicaid and $50/month after subsidy folks safely into the Democrat voter registration system.

I already cleaned all my g-ns today, so the house has the sweet aroma of bore cleaner. Now, as I manually “clean” the carpet, I can occupy my mind by singing the Pythagorian modes, ascending and descending, replenish the carpet’s earlier texture by grooming the dog, go out and dirty up the g-ns again, and teach my guitar students how to play “Money” by Pink Floyd cuz I like playin’ bass on that one, Water my plants, answer my pings, collect the mail, sell stuff on eBay, call my Mom, Pray For America, Practice my (3) instruments, and schedule a rehearsal for the Band for Sunday Service, after compiling the music program for Sunday. oh yeah...and eat something.

I don’t have a compost pile, but if i did, it would definitely be time to sort it. hahaha

He’ll follow the example of Joliet Jake Blues: “I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn’t have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn’t come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake. A terrible flood. Locusts! IT WASN’T MY FAULT, I SWEAR TO GOD!”

I've always wondered how they spelled "period" on Sir Teleprompter. Is it "." or did they go full on with ".... Period!"

Maybe he thought the speeches were about menstrual cycles. Obamacare, after all, is geared towards women's health. Again, we peasants just misunderstood him.

Obama cannot wave a magic wand and grandfather anyone for anything when it comes to cancelled insurance policies. These are the problems(to name only three).

1.Ins companies need to renegotiate with doctors and providers. This takes a long time.
2.To allow people to own plans with that do not comply with Obamacare negates the law he has passed.
3.A cancelled plan is a cancelled plan. These insurance companies have moved on.

Wow ... and right before RUSH starts, too.
Whatever 0 says, it's not going to turn out well for him. He's going to piss off one or the other or both sides of the ACA problem.

The lawyers are preparing the lawsuits even now. I wish someone would start preparing the impeachment papers.

If it weren't so tragic at this point, I'd be enjoying some freshly popped corn and a beer while watching him squirm. But people's lives are on the line here, and I have zero confidence that this situation can be fixed without going through even more pain and suffering.
