    When everybody can just log on to a website and see all of the options themselves.

    I expect this will succeed in whipping some poor/unemployed teabaggers into a frenzy to stay uninsured, but all of our core demographics will love it, and the electoral payoff should be significant.

    •  The GOP base won't believe the options are real. (4+ / 0-)

      They don't believe fact checking sites.  They don't believe anything except what Fox/Rush tells them.  If Fox tells them not to log onto the exchanges, they won't.  It is not hard to mislead the GOP base, they are completely mislead already and stand firm in their ignorance.

        A whole bunch of them are collecting SS and Medicare and constantly vote for those who would abolish those programs.

        We just need a strong majority behind it. Let the fringe whine.

      •  "misled" (0+ / 0-)

        The past tense of "lead" is "led," and that of "mislead" is "misled."
        I apologise; it's an occupational hazard.  I'm a teacher, and I can't turn it off even when I want to.

      •  Then if they become sick or injured (1+ / 0-)

        their families can always put together fund-raising dinners, bake sales and golf tournaments to help cover medical expenses.  I see ads, articles and emails for these almost every week.  The difference is  - most of these patients have health insurance and need help just to make their co-pay.

        This month we are helping an under-30 young man whose co-pay for this round of chemo is over $20,000.

        The truth always matters.

      Most of them are probably on Medicare or disability.

      Just because the government keeps a record of real property transfers, it doesn't mean that the government wants to confiscate your home.

      that's where their attacks on Net Neutrality come into play. Make logging onto government sites (or wherever) hard/impossible, and you get all the best parts of Republicanism working against you completely!
