    Link: Good News! ObamaCare Website Is Fixed! - By `fixed`? The White House means it`s still broken, has most features removed, crashes a lot and worse. Obama`s Legacy!

    Only in ObamaSpeak does `fixed` mean `doesn`t suck quite as much as when we rolled it out...and it only took 2 months and millions of tax dollars for it to suck (but not quite as much).`

    Oh look! @tedgp is moaning like a little girl, again.

    They`ve moved the goalposts, but still cannot score!
    It`s gone from:
    October 1: it WILL run perfectly! You`ll keep your policy, your doctor AND it will be cheaper!
    December 2: It WILL handle a tiny number per hour, MOST of the time! And all those spiffy features are GONE, only the skeleton remains. And it still if full of bugs & glitches. And you LOST your policy, your doctor AND it`s more expensive?

    You have until Jan 1 and then you`ll BE UNINSURED! Good News! That only applies to 5 million people.
    Better News: After March 31? You`ll have to pay the fee (TAX) if you haven`t signed up yet!

    Don`t Sign Up Yet! Says Gov`t!
    That`s one way to "fix it" = don`t use the site at all!

    Whose fault is it that ObamaCare doesn`t work?
    YOUR Fault America! If you`d stop complaining it would work perfectly!

    Lots Of Links Here! To various excuses being offered by the White House or the MSM.

    "It`s just like any other website" = Um, NO! Other sites don`t cost 5,000,000,000+ (over 5 BILLION dollars) and still fail to work after 60 days... (second video, at the bottom of the page)

    Some speculate it "might work" by 2017... GOOD NEWS EVERYONE!

    Obama`s "Mission Accomplished" moment? And Bush never even SAID those words...

    For cripes sake you idiots - Obamacare is NOT a website. The plan, such as it is in it`s infancy, is working well so far. You can enroll through your state and do not have to go to the federal site.

    How stupid must you be to think a bad website is Obama`s legacy? His legacy is going to be the first president to finally have the guts to implement some sort of health care plan! Without that jump, nothing ever gets done and we keep going broke trying to pay for healthcare.

    They should have just take that money and sent us all checks with a not that read "Here, go guy health insurance". At least then it would be mission accomplished.

    TechMistress-"is working well so far."

    Let`s see:
    -So far, ~500,000 people have signed up for ObamaCare.
    -So far, >16,000,000 will be losing their current insurance (some estimate up to 52,000,000)
    -Instead of the $2,500 annual savings promised by Obama..most will see drastic INCREASES in insurance costs.
    -The key promise of `If you like your health insurance plan, you can keep it. PERIOD.` turned out to be total bu||sh|t.

    You seem to have a strange definition of the word `well` or `working`.

    "Obama`s "Mission Accomplished" moment? And Bush never even SAID those words..."

    Bush said, "Major combat operations in Iraq have ended. In the Battle of Iraq, the United States and our allies have prevailed." This speech was May 1, 2003 aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln off the coast of her home port in San Diego, CA.

    So Operation Phantom Fury (2nd Battle of Fallujah), which I was part of, wasn`t a major combat operation? How about every other battle in Iraq since the time of his speech? Go ahead 5Cats, please tell me how they weren`t major battles. Seemed pretty f*cking major to me, but what the f*ck do I know? It`s not like I was there... oh wait... I was!

    But, 5Cats is correct. Bush never said those words.

    Those words appeared on a banner behind the President. The banner was, of course, referring to the USS Abraham Lincoln`s conclusion of a 10-month deployment.

    @MeGrendel - Sure, he never said those words but his speech and the giant banner certainly implied that. Like I said, he was full of sh*t considering the fact that the bloodiest battles of the war occurred after his publicity stunt. Saying major combat missions had ended, when they clearly had not, was the problem.

    Maybe I missed it but I don`t think there`s a "Mission Accomplished" banner on the White House or a "Mission Accomplished" header on the Healthcare.gov website.

    Oh, "of course." Except the banner was designed by the Bush White House and ordered by them from a private vendor. OF COURSE they never meant the banner they designed to appear for the television cameras over Bush`s shoulders during his "end of major combat operations" speech should refer to Bush`s Iraq venture. Of course.

    Your willingness to repeat the Republican`s attempt to rewrite history regarding that banner is positively Orwellian.

    @TechMistress: What planet are YOU from?
    "Obamacare is NOT a website."
    >The website is the ONLY way to access the ACA`s functions.
    "The plan, such as it is in it`s infancy, is working well so far."
    >Infancy? It`s been LAW for years now, the full provisions have been put off and delayed but it`s HARDLY working by ANY measure.
    "You can enroll through your state and do not have to go to the federal site."
    >The State sites link TO THE FEDERAL site to function. They do bypass SOME of the critical errors of the Fed site, but they cost over $4.5 BILLION bucks...

    Obama`s Legacy:
    You can keep your plan, PERIOD!
    Anyone who says otherwise is a racist and a LIAR! PERIOD!
    Your costs will DROP! PERIOD!
    You can keep your doctor! PERIOD!

    I`d say if anyone`s this is the Republicans` legacy. They`re the ones who`ve made it what it is. And no, Andrew, I will take the time to explain how, in a Dem-controlled House and Senate, that`s the case. It`s so well-documented as to be a complete and utter waste of time unless you`re so hopelessly biased as to just ignore reality.

    @WhoDat: Watch or read the WHOLE speech: he clearly says "the battle continues" for hearts & minds against the various insurgency movements.

    Full Speech And Transcript Here

    Stop screaming at strawmen dude, it makes you look silly. Bush CLEARLY refers only to the Combat Operation: BY NAME: Iraqi Freedom. You claim to "be a Marine" but cannot tell the difference between a "battle" (operation) and a "war" (conflict)???? ????

    "Is this Obama`s "Battle Of Waterloo"? Is that better for you @WhoDat?

    YES: It Was An Unfortunate Mistake But it remains a fact: He NEVER said "mission accomplished".

    Little early for legacy talk.
    @SmagBoy1: Shall I link ALL the times the MSM, Democrats and EVEN OBAMA HIMSELF has called it his "Legacy Legislation"? That`s a LOT of links!

    WHO says it`s his Legacy? OBAMA says so! That`s who.

    I`d say if anyone`s this is the Republicans` legacy. They`re the ones who`ve made it what it is.
    You keep repeating those lies, but never once back them up with little things like "facts" or "reality"...

    Actually, 5Cats, I have backed them up. The Dems wanted Universal Care. The Senate Repubs threatened filibuster. Time and again. Several dozen times. Then, when the act was finally so watered down that it was basically worthless, none voted for it anyway, making it APPEAR partisan and DEM-only, which is utter bullpoo.

    As for the legacy, it WILL be his legacy, but, you may want to check your giddiness, as this isn`t over. Not by a long shot. He`s got three more years in office. Do you recall what people thought of, said about and bitched about regarding MEDICARE? Same, exact things. It WILL be his legacy, but not this site of those stupid quotes. But, like I say, please, keep celebrating a battler and not the war. I encourage it.

    Okay, so no Republican voted for it, no Republican had any input in it and no Republican had any influence over it, and yet you say it`s the Republicans` legacy?

    You`re a special kind of stupid, arent you?

    So based on your `logic` , a mechannic tells you your car`s brakes are bad and the accelerator is stuck and the stearing doesn`t work, warns you it`s too dangerous to drive, tries to keep you from driving it, but you ignore him, drive the care anyway and crash it. You`re going to claim the mechanic triekd to make your car crash? Seriously?

    @SmagBoy1: That`s because he was on a military aircraft. You cannot fly in one of those things without the proper gear, correct? He actually DID serve, you do remember that?
    He could "wear a uniform" with honor...

    Again @SmagBoy1: 1 single non-vote was all it would take to have a 100% filibuster-proof Senate.
    Obama "The Bi-Partisan President"
    Obama "Nobel Peace Prize"
    Obama and Pelosi and Reid couldn`t get ONE SINGLE RHINO to support them? WHOSE fault is THAT?
    How did every PotUS do it up until then? They REACHED ACROSS and got some opposition to vote for them!
    #2 The Bill was UNREAD!
    #3 The Bill is SO BAD it`s beyond imagination.

    WHO wrote this bad, unread Bill? THAT is who`s 100% responsible for it.

    Next you`ll blame The Pope for ObamaCare`s shortcomings...

    Tell us again your "logic" here:
    Repubs are at fault because they threatened to, but never actually DID, change one word of a Bad Bill...

    So that makes it their fault.

    Not the Dems who wrote it (in secret) voted for it (without reading it) and continue to enforce it...
    NOT their fault!

    Puh-leez.

    So the Navy requests the sign to celebrate the work of the ship`s sailors--and yet it makes no mention of "sailors," "crew," "deployment"--or even the name of the ship?

    And this sign that you say the Navy requested: How again is it that the White House had to wind up placing the order with the sign vendor? Seems to me the Navy just might know one or two people who could make banners for ships.

    That have literally nothing to do with the issue. Literally. Nothing.

    The "threatened filibuster" did not change ONE thing: you cannot deny this. Furthermore you can never prove it did change something, because the negotiations were held IN SECRET. Not "live on C-Span" like Obama promised! Without ONE Republican invited.

    That`s because he landed in this:



    Now I realize you`re not familiar with `Military stuff`, but it`s pretty common to wear a flight suit when you`re flying on a military aircraft. (wierd, huh?).

    And he was not exactly a stranger to flightsuits...as he used to fly this:

    @5Cats - "END OF MAJOR COMBAT OPERATIONS"

    I would say, "You can`t really be that f*cking stupid and so set in your little fantasy world" but apparently you are that f*cking stupid and firmly planted in your little fantasy world.

    Here`s my favorite part of the article Squrlz4Sale linked:

    "In addition, Pentagon officials told the Washington Post that after the president`s speech, the Lincoln waited offshore for hours while he slept rather than heading into port after its 10-month voyage."

    Those sailors had been at sea for 10 months, wanting nothing to put their feet on solid ground, and had to wait because Bush wanted to take a f*cking nap!

    Yes, he landed in a fighter jet. Most non-fighter pilots don`t do that, though, although that`s all irrelevant. The question was what he was wearing when he landed, not why he was wearing it. So, that`s fine, he wore a flight suit when flying in a fighter jet. I got no beef with that. But, he WAS wearing a fighter suit when he landed. Your post of him in a suit, and your argument, indicated that he didn`t.

    Megrendel, I`m not going to google for you all of the times that Republican Senators obstructed the ACA with BS filibuster tactics. It`s not difficult and I`ve already done it too many times to be ignored again and again. And that`s fine. Like I say, celebrate the battle. The website roll-out was a suck job. It was terrible. Yay for Republicans! More people with no health insurance! Yay! The ONLY major political party in the entire civilized world that isn`t for guaranteed healthcare for citizens. Amazing.

    Yeah, he trained to be a pilot in the National Guard to avoid being sent to Vietnam.

    What kind of silly theatrics necessitated flying in on a jet anyway? Guess Obama should have repelled down from a helicopter to announce Bin Laden being killed!

    "...it`s pretty common to wear a flight suit when you`re flying on a military aircraft."

    The arrested landing in the S-3 was totally unnecessary. They initially said the carrier was out of helo range, which turned out to be a lie. Dubya wanted it to be more dramatic so he insisted on using a fixed wing aircraft instead of a helo.

    5Cats, the Dems couldn`t even get it voted on without changing it because of the veto threats.

    So @SmagBoy1: #1 How did they GET it voted on in the end? Since not one single Repub DID vote for it? HOW did they avoid it being blocked?
    (answer: the filibuster threat was empty)

    #2 LINK one single thing that was changed BY THE REPUBLICANS. Before the vote, obviously! And how would anyone have known there were changes? NO ONE READ THE BILL!

    Those are facts: no changes, no reading. Refute them.

    @WhoDat: Changing the topic now? Weaksauce...

    @Lauriloo: They got civilian flight suits for those sorts of aircraft? What options did he have?

    Continue to show yoru ignorance. Strangely enough, Fighter Jet identifications start with the letter `F`, just as Cargo start with `C` and Bombers start with the letter `B`. (see the pattern here?).

    The Lockhead S-3 is a Anti-Submarine aircraft, not a fighter.

    SmagBoy1-"he WAS wearing a fighter suit"

    The correct term is `Flight` suit.

    SmagBoy1-"The website roll-out was a suck job. It was terrible. Yay for Republicans!"

    Again, it was a web-design company that were beholding to the Obama`s that was given the job...and you STILL blame Republicans?

    whodat6484-"Dubya wanted it to be more dramatic so he insisted on using a fixed wing aircraft instead of a helo."

    Hey, if I had a change to do a carrier landing, I would. I`ve worked on the catapult accumulators before, and would love to experience it during a takeoff.

    The cost analysis done afterward revealed the shorter time in air by the S-3 resulted in basically the same cost of flying him by Marine 1.

    Seriously? The Iraq War was a terrible mistake started on outrageous premises (if not outright lies), but comparing it to ObamaCare, is ridiculous. Nevermind the latter really was started on outright lies, nevertheless both policies were epic disasters in their own arenas.

    @Cajun247: I think you`ve missed the point:
    #1 Both Dems and Repubs supported BOTH Iraq Wars. Bush II followed ALL US Constitutional requirements.
    Meanwhile: ObamaCare is 100% partisan: only Dems support it, and fewer of those every day!

    #2 The rest of the world (with a FEW exceptions) supported the Gulf War II as well.

    It`s a completely different issue: international diplomacy VS domestic laws.

    The "Lies" told before the Gulf War were believed to be true at the time.
    The lies told by Obama and the Dems were KNOWN to be lies before they were spoken.

    One party`s wrongs DO NOT JUSTIFY "equivalent" wrongs by the other party!!!!

    It`s impossible to change the Gulf War now.

    There`s still time to prevent the WORST PARTS of ObamaCare: The Employer Mandate, which could put 90 MILLION AMERICANS out of their insurance. (White House`s own numbers!)

    5Cats: "YES: It Was An Unfortunate Mistake"

    Oh, it was an "unfortunate mistake" now... hahaha! Ok, whatever you say my crazy Canadian friend, whatever you say...

    @MeGrendel - I`m having a hard time finding this "cost analysis" you speak of. In fact, from what I`ve read, they refused to release details of the cost analysis to the public and all they said was that there was a "minimal difference" in the cost between landing on the carrier via Marine 1 or the S-3. That tells me it cost more, but they don`t want to say how much more.

    Yes @WhoDat: Having a banner unrelated to the President`s speech in the background is a MISTAKE.

    Telling the US Public 36+ times "You can keep your policy" is a LIE. Because the WH`s own reports said tens of millions would LOSE their policies, like them or not!
    Or keep your doctor.
    Or it will be cheaper.
    Or the website will be up & running on Oct.1

    AND ANYONE who says otherwise is a liar (Obama said this) or a racist (the MSM repeatedly said this).

    What part of this is so difficult for you to understand? It`s a "mole-hill" on one side and a MOUNTAIN on the other. They`re not the same.

    A one-time mistake VS hundreds of deliberate lies.

    Actually 5Cats I think we need to stop getting side tracked by Iraq War comparisons. I like to bring them up as a short quip, but in this case liberals are doing it to deny the serious systemic failings of ObamaCare or at least avoid talking about them.

    Long, Fact-Filled Blog Article About what exactly went wrong with ObamaCare.

    Gems of wisdom like:
    "Success is the eye of the beholder [i.e., the US public"> not the architect [i.e., Obama">."

    and:
    "A complex system designed from scratch never works and cannot be made to work. You have to start over, beginning with a working simple system."

    That is one of the biggest whoppers ever. Most people already know their insurance bills are increasing, many have doubled in cost.

    flying_ltj - The mods cater to this guy for some reason. I`ve tried before, and what I`ve learned...

    Pointing out the FACT that a canadian is posting his gripes on American healthcare doesn`t compute with the mods.

    Pointing out the FACT that he uses his entitlement program (canadian healthcare paid for by the canadian taxpayers) to stay unemployed is, for some reason, a personal attack. (according to the mentally disabled entitlement abuser)

    It`s fair game. It is along the exact topic that he is submitting. If someone rally`s against healthcare (that doesn`t affect him at all) while abusing the same programs, it`s not a personal attack, it`s the obvious TRUTH.

    Watch them call me a liberal. I hate obama and the ACA the way it is written, but the only comment our disabled friend can conjure is to call me a liberal and say the ACA and Obama suck, as if that was my point.

    Can`t reason with crazy.(the free money is just too good!)

    You know, I`m really beginning to think this web site failure isn`t accidental. Obama wants to see any and all private insurance go the way of the Dodo. So what better way than to create a crisis that only Washington can solve.

    So in the not so distant future I fully expect John Carney to address the press w/ something like this...

    "we tried the old way and it`s not working....our experts have concluded at this time it`s simply not feasible to get everybody who needs to be signed up accomodated. And that`s so VERY important as soooo many are struggling...... So we`re going to form a blus ribbon expert govt. thing-a-ma-jig that will automatically place you on the plan that`s just right for you.

    No need to bother yourself with all the
    wait/hassle etc. WE WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU and mail you your marching orders...ummm I mean instructions."

    Cowardice is the Liberal`s hallmark.

    Just a thought.

    How the `eff do they expect to have people insured up by 1/1/14 if the deadline to sign up is 12/23/13? I mean it took well over two weeks for Hartford Insurance to issue me a check for my car damage after being rear-ended by one of their policy holders.

    Then again only a few will actually manage to get that far by year end so perhaps I`m concerned over nothing.

    This is not a rational conversation, and the reason for stopping it is because you are ANNOYING everyone.

    "It`s perfectly OK to denigrate women if it`s for "the greater liberal good"!"

    Nobody`s insulting these women by posting the pictures. Nobody`s saying they`re ugly or unattractive.

    You`re basing your opinions on their intentions on the assumptions formed in your corrupted little brain, rather than on the words that they actually say/type.

    Draculya I am sure that the 90+ comments don`t constitute "success" to IAB. Most of the comments on this thread are from 5cats himself, so how does that equal "success" when most come from the OP?

    At this moment this link would be considered a "success" to the website. 20,000+ views trumps 90+ comments with only 2900+ views any day of the week when you are talking making money on the site. Unless you have some strange formula for figuring out "success"

    Once: I never said any such thing about Jews.

    Unlike the LOVE PEACE and HARMONY which has been directed AT ME? That`s A-OK with you?

    You`re strangely silent about things they`ve said... I wonder why?

    @5Cats

    Don`t misquote me, you downright liar:

    "He seriously does act like you-know-who when it comes to talking about the Jews...sorry, I mean Liberals."

    If you didn`t know what I was trying to say there, you`re more of a lost cause than I thought.

    "Unlike the LOVE PEACE and HARMONY which has been directed AT ME? That`s A-OK with you?"

    Generally not from me. But that`s passed now, thanks to this.

    PS: And how the holy hell did you think they were Jew "jokes"?

    It was a serious comment that the way you talk about liberals makes you sound like Hitler talking about the Jews.

    How the **** did you think I was making a joke with that?

    I`m done with you. All you get is fat girls now. Congratulations.

    "You`re strangely silent about things they`ve said... I wonder why?"

    Because you`re being an annoying prat spewing your mental illness at us all, and they`re RIGHT to call you out on it.

    Also, since when do I have to call them out on anything? Just because I don`t criticise them, doesn`t mean you get immunity from criticism. I`m allowed to call you an ass without first having to call every other ass on the planet an ass for "fairness".

    You`re an ass, 5Cats. They`re asses too. There, does that make you feel better about being an ass? Does it make you any less of an ass? No, it bloody well does not.

    Incidentally, I have never voted on a submission before...but now you`re getting a 1 every time from me.

    Be clear. It`s not because I`m "liberal" (though, no doubt that`s what your corrupted and unhinged mind will blame it on), or because you`re a conservative. It`s because you`re an ASS and I am finally sick of dealing with you.

    @Musuko42: So you have one rule for one group, and a different rule for others? You freely admit this?

    You also wish to sabotage IAB because you dislike the political opinions others are allowed to express?

    How very... liberal of you!

    @1234: You`ll be equally happy when a pro-Obama thread gets spam-stopped? Or pro-liberal (in general) thread? I think... NOT!

    You don`t get it. This isn`t in support of obama.
    IT`S ABOUT YOU.

    NO one here is arguing FOR OBAMA.
    JUST AGAINST YOU!

    everyone is tired of you and your posts! HAAHAHHHAHA! You know it`s true!

    I called it in my last post. You are so pathetic you would resort to calling me a liberal. I am absolutely not, and you damn well know it. You are a Canadian. Also, you are a moron.

    In a brain-washed, disabled head like yours...If I don`t like you, I must a liberal, even though I agree with what you say.

    No, I do not.

    Just because you don`t catch me criticising someone else for doing something, doesn`t mean I don`t get to criticise you when you do it.

    You don`t get a pass for being an ass just because others are getting away with being one. Accept some damn personal responsibility.

    A big ask, I know, of someone who`s living on benefits. Tell me; if you`re able to sit at a computer and post post post...why aren`t you able to sit at a computer and WORK WORK WORK?
