    It is just the beginning.

  2. Gamecock says:

    ACA has been one of the dampers on the economy for YEARS.

  3. Jeffk says:

    Employer pools stem from 1947 Taft-Hartley Act, and that practice should be repealed. Employer healthcare pools artificially encourage workers to stay in jobs they hate, just for medical insurance. This is one reason why unions today are opposed to Obamacare: it’s one more example of how onetime exclusive labor union perks become nationalized to benefit everybody, including unemployed. It reduces the demand to organize labor unions or further paying membership dues.

    So why are Republicans risking so much with this Government shutdown? If it is so bad, won’t Republicans reap the harvest in 2014 and 2016? This strategy seems much more risky, given the beating the Republicans are taking in the media. Let it fly, then crash and burn.

    • Gamecock says:

      Republican twits like Boehner have been losing the base. Romney got fewer votes than McCain, even against the known quality of Obama. Fighting tooth and nail for what is right will energize their base, which they are at risk of losing.

    • Mike D says:

      Risking what? Which voters are going to say, oh I’m not voting Republican because of that shut down over a year ago? The last budget fight, Obama got his tax increases and gave none of the cuts he was to do later. No one remembers that, and it was less than a year ago.

      As Gamecock notes, the base has to turn out to have a chance at all, and if the Republicans are just lap dogs for the Democrats, why bother voting at all?

      Obamcare will roll out and since it is nothing close to what was promised, there’s going to be issues next election. But the Democrats, having taken an unified stance now, can’t dodge the responsibility for it. I have to say I had expected that the plans available on the exchanges would be ok plans.

      But they are worse than what is available from the same providers, but outside the exchange. While my plan has almost doubled in price, I can save a tiny bit and get a much worse plan on the exchange, or pay about the same and get a worse plan. Going directly to the provider’s website I can get a cheaper plan that beats the exchange plans. That’s surprising, and it means even those who have their premiums covered 100% are going to be disappointed by their coverage.

  5. Mike D says:

    If you look at the labor reports, Obama delayed the employer mandate right after a spike in part time employment. So even he knows what the effect has been.

  6. ralphcramdo says:

    Why would Obama supporters support the Democrats in the upcoming elections if obamacare is a total disaster?

  7. John W. Barber says:

    Why are our lawmakers allowed to do exactly what the Taft-Hartley Act of 1947 was designed to prevent?
