    just voted for Paul Ryan's Healthcare Plan.  Ryan wants to move 50 MILLION seniors from Medicare to a new federal exchange......the same exchange
    he's bellyaching about now.

    Nothing would please a 90 year old senior w/ several preexisting conditions happier than shuffling around on the federal exchange trying to find a plan & being forced off of Medicare under Ryan's plan.   NOT!

      Obama and the ACA will get killed on this issue in the media.  I've posted this around today because I'm frustrated at the crap press coverage and our cavalier attitude about it,  as if viewers and readers and reporters will do actual work and uncover the truth.  Like they did in 2004 with the Swift Boaters.

      They won't.  This is America.

      And this thing will tank ACA/Obama poll numbers within 2 weeks.  I will say I-told-you-so at that time, or gladly admit I was terribly wrong.

        the message.  And how successfully they can cut through the GOP noise machine and their constant braying over the system's failures.  Yes, I agree the site's producers should have worked out the kinks and delays of the website before releasing it to the public at large, but the constant whoop-de-dooing over the Obamacare fiasco is certainly not doing the administration any favors.

        The good news is that Obama and Sibelius at least know that there are things wrong with the site, and are looking for ways to fix this but goodness knows they have their work cut out for them in turning around the media's portrayal of the ACA.

        Mark Twain once said that "A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is still getting its boots on." This is the situation Obama and his staff now faces with the "Liberal" media. But I am will to see if they can fix the site and keep reminding the populace that this is actually a good thing.

        If they accomplish that by election day 2014, and the people realize that the sky hasn't fallen and their milk hasn't curdled, that could mean good news for the Dems this particular midterm.

        But we'll see what we shall see.
