Forget about California... it's been widely reported that TENS of MILLIONS will LOSE their insurance due to Obamacare. Compare that to the hundred thousand that have (reportedly) signed up, and you're left with the FACT that under Obamacare, millions LESS people will be insured. Obamacare was supposed to INCREASE the number of insured people... and it seems to have done the exact opposite so far! Obamacare was supposed to DECREASE the cost of healthcare... and it seems to have done the exact opposite so far! Obamacare was supposed to let you keep your current plan and doctor if you liked them... and it seems to have done the exact opposite so far! The very premise that you could dump a huge federal bureaucracy on top of the existing healthcare system, and somehow make it run better, faster and cheaper... is like saying that you can put fat bureaucrats on the backs of marathon runners to make them run further and faster.

The name "Loyal Prog" tells me his comment wasn't intended as either sarcasm or satire. He drank the Kool-Aid and now he's making excuses for the failures of his socialist masters.

Programs "the people" wanted?!? Really?? - I think you mean programs DEMOCRATS wanted. For the past 50 years, Democrats have raided Social Security like it was their own personal piggy bank. It was raided to fund all manner of social programs (ie: bottomless pits into which we've dumped countless TRILLIONS of dollars). And it's not as if these raids were public knowledge. Most programs were pitched with nary a whisper about where the funds would come from. Democrats LOVE to pretend that all government funding is like magical pennies from heaven... appearing from nowhere and with no need for the people to actually pay for it. Dems speak of their programs as "investments", as if they will somehow pay dividends in some future fairy-land scenario. Face it... we've been LIED to, repeatedly and in the worst possible ways. There are many Democrats today that parrot the line (and actually believe) that Obama somehow "cut the deficit in half", and think that our outlook is rosy and sound. They have no idea that this administration has piled on the equivalent of a new mortgage worth of debt for every taxpaying American... and their children... and their children's children...
... and I ALSO remember when Clinton, Kerry, Gore, and all the other Democrats (who were privy to the EXACT same intelligence reports) said that Iraq had WMD. ...and I remember when Saddam gassed TENS OF THOUSANDS of Kurdish men, women and children to death in the most grisly fashion imaginable. ... and I remember when the huge stockpiles of sarin gas shells were discovered in Iraq. ...and I remember when yellowcake uranium was discovered there. ...and I remember when the Israelis bombed the Iraqi reactor that was under construction. Only liberal parrots like yourself continue to spout silly, childish rhymes like "Bush lied, people died". You're nothing but a "useful tool" of the left.
Well, that's nothing new. Democrats have spent the last hundred years as subversive and deceptive little Socialists. They've hidden behind words like "liberal" and "progressive". I've managed to get a few to finally admit they want "European style Socialism", but it took a LOT of debate and when finally cornered, they'll admit it. Those were just ordinary folks... good luck getting a slick and polished politician to admit their real agenda!
Liberals claimed government could make insurance CHEAPER... guess what... they LIED! Liberals claimed you'd be able to keep your own PLAN... guess what... they LIED! Liberals claimed you'd be able to keep your own DOCTOR... guess what... they LIED! Liberals claimed NO NEW TAXES on the middle class ... guess what... they LIED! Liberals claimed annual premium SAVINGS of $2,500 ... guess what... they LIED! Liberals claimed NO INCREASE in the deficit ... guess what... they LIED! Liberals claimed companies wouldn't dump their current health plans... guess what ... they LIED! Liberals claimed businesses would NOT cut peoples hours to avoid Obamacare regulations ... guess what ... they LIED! Liberals claimed the government wouldn't have access to personal info (health records, bank accounts, etc)... guess what ... they LIED! Liberals claimed the IRS wasn't going to grow in scope or power as a result of Obamacare ... guess what ... they LIED!

Not sure how you got the idea that there's a "single example". People all across the country are shocked at the premium increases and the astronomically high deductibles. They are being unceremoniously DUMPED from their current plans, and left with UNaffordable Obamacare. The middle class is in tough shape already and they're clinging to their homes by their fingernails. And now they're having to spend THOUSANDS more per year in healthcare?!? It'll be a decade before any middle class family believes a Democrat politician again. The 2014 midterms are coming... reap the whirlwind!
It's SO funny hearing my liberal cohorts crying about being dropped from company health plans, how their premiums are skyrocketing, and how their deductibles will now be astronomically high. They actually thought Obamacare was going to be cheap! Rather than delaying this debacle, Republicans should havve pushed to have implementation in Obama's FIRST term. Had that happened, we'd be done with him and his socialist healthcare system by now.
I've heard that about him. Maybe the TSA agents were women?
I recently saw a rather scary story of a suspected Muslim terrorist who has sailed through American security on NUMEROUS occasions. Despite a long and sordid history of association with foreign agents, convicted terrorists and a litany of anti-American operatives, he continues to ELUDE American security forces and checkpoints. This foreign operative has lived under at least a half dozen aliases and multiple Social Security numbers. His education was paid for by a Saudi agent who is a known financier of suspected terrorist agencies. This suspect has spent his whole life moving from place to place, country to country, and everywhere.... living under layers upon layers of forgeries and false identities. With all this sordid history, Barack Hussein Obama (AKA Harrison J. Bounel, AKA Barry Soetoro, AKA Barry Obama, AKA Barack Hussein), has repeatedly walked through TSA and homeland Security checkpoints with NO pat-downs, NO body searches, and NO scans of any kind!!!
