Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Obamacare loooooooong, Obamacare baaaaaaaaaaaaaad.

Crying baby
Some actor you've never heard of apparently isn't busy enough with his 'acting' and 'directing' and 'producing' career and will be spending his time tweeting out every single word of the 906 page PPACA, aka "Obamacare".
Actor and director Jake McClain has taken on the monumental task of tweeting every single word of the 906-page "Obamacare" health reform law in hopes of drawing attention to the bill's content, which he argues is detrimental to the nation's fiscal health.
Because obviously, if something is long, it must be bad.
"Folks ... this will probably take a long time to do, but I decided I will read every page, word by word, of Obamacare, and tweet every word," he tweeted on March 22.
Obviously "actor" Jake McClain doesn't have enough going on in his 'acting', 'directing' and 'producing' career if he has the time to undertake this Herculean task.

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Actor and director Jake McClain has taken on the monumental task of tweeting out every single word of the 906-page "Obamacare" health reform law in hopes of drawing attention to the bill's content.
And, drawing attention to Obamacare is an extremely novel idea. There has not been a Supreme Court decision rendering in constitutional, or anything like that. No "Lie of the Year 2009", "Lie of the Year 2010", or anything like that either.

Yep, maybe we can get some Senators to hit this thing up. Never mind that the House has unsuccessfully voted to repeal 'this thing' over three dozen times.  His obliviousness, while cringeworthily embarrassing, is typical for his ilk.

"Thing is that this is for everyone ... A scant few read this sucker. If numbers read it, the story changes," he tweeted Monday night, adding later: "And if we keep reading and tweeting these pages, we can get enough people to hit their senators up on this thing."
And what do you know, Obamacare used to be a horrific, "longer than the Bible (the standard literary yardstick)" 2,000 page monstrosity. Somehow by some miracle of modern medicine,  it has been suddenly reduced by half to only 906 pages.  

This has the "severe" potential to backfire and blow up in famous-actor Jake's face. Flaw in his logic - people could find out what's in this bill and find out they actually like having health insurance.

Since his acting career isn't gaining him fame and fortune, maybe this stunt will work. And would you be surprised to find this quote on his IMDB page:

Personal Quote: There are 99 percenters and there are 1 percenters. Guess which ones tend to make a difference?
Yeah. 99%'ers have never made a difference. Asshole.

And never mind supporting his claim that it will negatively impact the nation's fiscal health, he won't be tweeting that part. Let's get your objection straight Jake McClain, it reduces the deficit. Maybe it's your miniscule increase in taxes and your 'fiscal health' that you're objecting to?
