musclmed saidWell we do not pass laws to explore them. If the law is being implemented incorrectly then its no ones fault but the Obama Admin and Sibelius.
The law is being implemented eagerly in states like California, Oregon, Maryland, Massachusetts and New York. That's a whole lot of people who will experience first hand the benefits of this program.
How do you know what I know? You seem to completely ignore the cost of the bill , the potential economic disaster and damage to the medical system, just to "explore".
You forgot to mention the damage to the insurance industry. I'm sure they appreciate the obfuscation and fear mongering of your sources. Did you hear that insurers in Oregon which had initially come in with high premium bids are now asking to resubmit with cheaper offerings in the face of competition? And you still haven't backed up your claim that the CBO did not account for the cost of implementation.
Baucus was scolding her and clearly pointing out if he cant get answers how can the people and how can throwing money at it accomplish it? Its not a funding problem if he cant get the answers. THEY DONT HAVE ANSWERS.
He was clearly pointing out that small businesses don't know about signups, exchanges, affordability rules, penalties. In other words, small businesses in his state don't know their role in implementation. You kinda made up the part about Baucus not knowing the answers.
I am going to go out on the limb your completely fixated on exploring , and not at all worried about the consequences.
I'm worried about the consequences for residents of states like Texas, Florida, and Alabama that are dragging their heels on implementation. And since a very large share of uninsured Americans live in those red states, this will be a real tragedy for the country
You mentioned its a trick for anyone to have reservations about this law, just the reservations and response by Sibelius is proof alone its not a "trick". Clearly debunked in its ballooning budget and fraudulent inaccurate CBO score given the requests by the administration and delays in implementation.
If you have access to Sibelius' response, why didn't you share it? Or did you make that up too?
(Now I'm going back to bed. This is crazy.)
