The Choice to make America a home to all is with the people's Referendum, and people must decide that enough is enough

Good People,

I think, these twisted heads need a little panel beating to face the truth (to have their heads straitened) from the the tweeter, facebooks, public network forums and TVs ...... because they must be reasonable and keep in the wavelengths of what people want……..instead, they are completely out of orders and they don’t seem get to get it…………..
They dont understand that President Obama is the President of United States of America and that they need to behave and put their requests and proposals in an organized manner. If they dont have any, they should go with what the people have a greed and accepted as "The Law"........ that their undoing is disrespectful and are against the law..........that, in principle, you cannot accuse anything that has not been put to work into practice atleast for more that one year before you can level criticism........What the heck are these people thinking..........???

Just like Chris Matthews, Bill Maher, Chris Hayes, Ed Schultz, Rev. Sharpton and Rachel Maddow put them squarely on fire; it is about time they must meet the wrath of people for destroying peoples peace and happiness in unity of purpose.......their behaviou is unacceptable........We are all sick and tired from noises that do not add value.......What is wrong and bad for human consuption is wrong in all ways you look at it and no amount of concocted theories will translate what is wrong to right.......or what is bad to good...........and a Twisted head remains crooked until it is streighten and this is what people must do...........

The Choice to make America a home to all is with the people's Referendum, and people must decide that enough is enough........So that, the President should engage in Service to the people without wasting any more time and stop the irresponsible behavior of having the President dragged into mud unnecessarily........AND, Speaker John Boehner should also stop crying like a baby...........he needs to man-up and take his job seriously...........If the Tea Party new comers put him in a bad corner, let him speak up and President Obama Graciously may send him help from the Tea Party, but crying and messing will not help solve his problems, instead will make them worse.
Cheers !!!

I so appreciate you giving a positive take on the importance of the Affordable Care Act. I understand those Dems who are afraid of their re-elections but it is so important that everyone stay unified in making certain this law works. This is not the time to cave in and begin chipping away at the law. Too many people need this coverage. Affordable health care is a right and should not be a privelege as it has been in the past. For Boehner to say that the old health care system was working means that he has no idea what is happening to Americans all across this country including many of his constituents. If he is that removed from the needs of the people, he has no business being Speaker of the House. To not be aware of the people who died because they were unable to get insurance means he is out of touch as are all of the GOP. People keep saying that people could use the emergency rooms but the emergency room will give minimal treatment, even if they hospitalize you, but you are sent home without a real path to getting well. This is what happened with my sister. I feel so strongly about this because of her death. She could not be insured because of a pre-existing condition. She subsequently died. This has happened to people all across this country.

$15 per hour is an annual salary of $31,200 per year before tax deductions. Almost impossible to live on. That should be the very least minimum wage.

Did Chris Hayes Really Connect Tea Party to the Klu Klux Klan Last Night?
Published on Oct 24, 2013
We've got an awful lot of reader emails practically begging us to take a look at a particular segment of Wednesday evening's All In on MSNBC. According to these Mediaite tipsters, Chris Hayes subtly implied a connection between the "tea party" element of the GOP and the Klu Klux Klan.

Showing Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Marco Rubio's faces plastered onto "King" playing cards, these readers suggested Hayes was spelling out "KKK" while discussing how potential GOP candidates such as these three will have to play to an "insatiable" base while appeasing the wealthier interests that run the party.

Our readers could be right that this is MSNBC having fun with subliminal messaging (perhaps getting a few laughs among graphics producers), but I'm skeptical. The left has created an often eyeroll-worthy cottage industry out of mining Fox News for subliminal messages, and so it's probably smart for conservatives not to make the same histrionic assumptions.

Yes, the KKK-tea party comparison has been in the news lately. Yes, an outspoken Democratic congressman made the comparison on MSNBC and then sent out a fundraising email riding on such over-the-top rhetoric.

But the actual Hayes segment doesn't touch on race at all. And if it had spoken of racial issues, we'd most certainly call the network out for poor judgement. Not to mention the fact that his guest was Ben Domenech, the conservative editor of The Federalist and someone who would undoubtedly have called out his host if he felt the segment was implying certain things about GOP leaders.

It seems as though the "king" was chosen because that's the male-centric high card. It might've been odd to call them "aces," and perhaps a bit too obvious (even for a liberal network) to call them "jokers." (Also, there are usually only two jokers in a deck. Am I reading way too far into this already?)

Anyway, have a look at the segment below and decide for yourself. But we're going to go with "No hidden meaning here":
Chris Hayes mixes it up with Michael Saltsman, a representative from the Employment Policies Institute, which is linked to a lobbyist known as “Dr. Evil.”

House GOP getting its say on cancellations

WASHINGTON (AP) — First, President Barack Obama had his say on reversing millions of insurance cancellations issued under the health care program known by his name. Now House Republicans are taking their turn.
Associated Press
Are the Insurers lobbying for loopholes of more than 150% profit margin from consumers??? If they respect the law, they would have put their houses in order from defaulting, and they dont need excuses from kicking the can on the street to justify their non-compliance..........The Affordable Care Act is under Administrative Construction and Application Implementation and the hitch and delay of the website is not a good reason not to respect the law. Alternatives are provided just incase the roll-out does not go smooth as expected and a little delay shall be expected when formalization is in the process...........It is normal with any type of changes before the system becames fully operational..............No silver bullet should be put for cut-throat excellence............

House GOP getting its say on cancellations

Associated Press
By DAVID ESPO 2 hours ago
House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio listens to a reporter's question during a news conference in the U.S. Capitol in Washington, Thursday, Nov. 14, 2013. Speaking about the Affordable Care Act, Boehner insisted it was time to
WASHINGTON (AP) — Republicans renewed an assault on President Barack Obama's health care law and his own credibility on Friday as they pushed toward House passage of a measure to let insurers keep offering health coverage that falls short of the law's standards.
A day earlier, the president changed course in the face of a public uproar and said he would take administrative action — which doesn't need congressional approval — to let companies continue selling such plans for at least another year. Unlike the House GOP bill, he would permit such sales to insurers' existing customers only, not to new ones.
Obama's proposal drew derision from House Republicans, who have staged more than 40 votes aimed at repealing all or part of the 2010 law.
"Can we really trust the administration that wrote this disastrous missive in the first place and so mishandled the implementation, do we trust them now to fix it?" Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Texas, said Friday.
Burgess, a doctor, said that while the GOP measure wouldn't fix the law, "It is merely to stop the bleeding. It's an effort at triage."
Democrats said Republicans' only goal was to sabotage the entire law.
"I know you don't like the president," said Rep. James McGovern, D-Mass. "But get over it and do what's right for the American people."
McGovern said the GOP wanted to "undo all the protections that allow you to keep your kids on your insurance policy till they're 26" and forbid insurers from barring customers with pre-existing medical conditions.
An AP survey shows insurers have mailed at least 4.2 million cancellation notices to customers. But insurance companies and state commissioners are warning that premiums will rise if changes are made this close to the new year and insurers can keep selling substandard policies.
The impact of Obama's proposal was to shift responsibility for cancellations from the administration to state insurance regulators and the industry itself.

"What we want to do is to be able to say to these folks, you know what, the Affordable Care Act is not going to be the reason why insurers have to cancel your plan," Obama said Thursday of the millions who have received cancellation notices.
The president's shift also was designed to redeem his long-ago pledge that people who liked their coverage could keep it.
Republicans said they intended to push ahead with their plan to allow companies to continue to sell the plans to new customers as well as existing ones, and challenged Obama to work with them.
"If the president were sincere in his apology and serious about keeping his promise to the American people, he would work with Congress on bipartisan proposals," said Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich., the main supporter of the GOP measure.
While passage was expected in the GOP-controlled chamber, a combination of the president's announcement and an as-yet-undisclosed Democratic alternative measure seemed likely to make the vote a clearly partisan one. The White House said late Thursday the president would veto the GOP legislation.
Meanwhile, Obama was set to meet Friday with health insurance CEOs to discuss helping people enroll in new plans and ways to minimize disruptions as people switch to new plans, a White House official said. The official asked to speak anonymously because the person was not authorized to talk publicly about the meeting ahead of the session.
The maneuvering on many fronts came on an issue that has been a constant cause of controversy since Obama called for sweeping health care legislation in his first inaugural address nearly five years ago on the steps outside the Capitol.
His remarks on Wednesday marked a reversal with his personal and political credibility on the line, even though the impact on consumers is unclear.
Obama's approval ratings in polls are also ebbing, and he readily conceded that after recent events the public can legitimately "expect me to have to win back some credibility on this health care law in particular and on a whole range of these issues in general."
Shortly after Obama spoke, the major industry trade group, America's Health Insurance Plans, warned in a statement that prices might rise as a result of his new policy. "Changing the rules after health plans have already met the requirements of the law could destabilize the market and result in higher premiums for consumers," it said.
A few hours later, the head of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners added a fresh word of caution. Louisiana Insurance Commissioner Jim Donelon, president of the group, said Obama's proposal could lead to higher premiums and market disruptions next year and beyond.
"In addition, it is unclear how, as a practical matter, the changes proposed today by the president can be put into effect. In many states, cancellation notices have already gone out to policyholders, and rates and plans have already been approved for 2014," he added.
Until the president made his announcement, the administration had been assuming that individuals currently covered by plans marked for cancellation would switch to alternatives offered in government-established exchanges. If so, they would be joining millions of others who have lacked insurance in the past.
The people with current individual coverage are a known risk to insurers. But those without generally have had less access to medical services and are most costly to care for. The theory has been that moving people with current coverage into the new markets would help stabilize premiums.
Only last week, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told a Senate panel she doubted that retroactively permitting insurers to sell canceled policies after all "can work very well since companies are now in the market with an array of new plans. Many have actually added consumer protections in the last 3 1/2 years."

Boehner Predicts Obamacare Will ‘Never’ Work

Nov 13, 2013 1:11pm
As Republicans prepare to vote on a measure that capitalizes on what they say is President Obama’s “broken” promise that Americans could keep their current health plan under the Affordable Care Act, House Speaker John Boehner predicted the president’s signature health care law would never work and that there was no way for Congress to fix it.
“When you step back and look at the totality of this, I don’t think it’s ever going to work,” Boehner, R-Ohio, said in a news conference on Capitol Hill today. “There are all types of health insurance policies out there based on your financial circumstances and how much risk you’re willing to take, and so the idea that the federal government should come in and create a one size fits all for the entire country never was going to work.”
The House is expected to vote Friday on the Keep Your Health Plan Act, which would allow people to keep their current health insurance plans in 2014 without penalties.
“You know, the president promised the American people that if you like your health care plan, you can keep it,” Boehner said. “The president has an opportunity over the next couple of weeks to keep his promise.”
Boehner said he was encouraged by “momentum” in the Senate, where a similar bill introduced by Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., is picking up a handful of Democratic co-sponsors, including Sens. Dianne Feinstein, Joe Manchin, Mark Pryor, Kay Hagan and Jeff Merkley.
“This is not about politics,” Boehner said. “These are about real people in our districts that are being harmed by Obamacare. It’s time to fix this law.”
Asked whether Republicans aim to fix the health care law or address problems as they emerge in the coming months, Boehner emphasized his responsibility “is to protect the American people” from a law Republicans believe is harmful.
“When you look at Obamacare, frankly, I don’t think there’s a way to fix it,” Boehner said. “There’s a way to help people along the way when we encounter problems, but when you look at the government taking control of our entire health care insurance market and, for that matter, the delivery market, I don’t think this is ever going to work, and [it's] certainly unaffordable.”
Tea people prefer to break up the country while they fraudulently pass as patriots. They call people in need "bums and lazy", but they have no problem saying we shouldn't pay taxes and that even though doing good for people is bad to them "corporate welfare" to help those struggling billionaires is so needed. Idiots and traitors who are nothing for people or this country.

Benny Baby.. to get you point across maybe you respect the President by his first name instead of calling him Barry. I stopped reading after your first sentence. Name calling such elementary school.

I agree...No sense of respect anymore, is there?

All In with Chris Hayes / Democrats / Economy

Mira Furman (C) joins with fast food workers to protest the minimum wage in New York on Aug. 29, 2013.
Raising the federal minimum wage is a top priority for the White House, Labor Secretary Thomas Perez said Friday.
“Unfinished business starts with increasing the minimum wage, and that’s something which is job one for this administration,” he said during a speech commemmorating the 75th birthday of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
Rumblings of a renewed push to increase the federal minimum wage began last week when a White House official official reportedly told the New York Times that the president supports legislation which would set the wage at $10.10 per hour and tie future hikes to increases in the Consumer Price Index. The current federal minimum wage is $7.25.
The administration has avoided going on the record in support of the proposed law, and Perez was no exception. He applauded recent minimum wage hikes around the country on the local and state level but avoided endorsing any specific proposal for raising the national wage. President Obama’s previous wage hike proposal would have set the minimum wage at $9 per hour.
Perez singled out Gov. Jerry Brown of California for particular praise, noting that Brown signed a law in September that will eventually bring the state’s minimum wage to $10 per hour, up from $8. Perez also celebrated a New Jersey referendum, passed earlier this month, which raised that state’s minimum wage from the national minimum up to $8.25.
“Over 60% of the voters in this most recent election passed a referendum increasing the minimum wage in that state,” Perez said, holding up the measure’s success as evidence that such hikes can enjoy bipartisan support. A recent poll found that 76% of Americans support raising the federal minimum wage to $9 per hour.
Activists across the country have increasingly been agitating for a significantly higher minimum wage hike of $15 per hour. A referendum bringing the wage up to that level in the small town of SeaTac, Wash., passed earlier this month. On Monday, the New York Times editorial board applauded SeaTac’s new law.
Over the last half-century, American workers have achieved productivity gains that can easily support a $15-an-hour minimum wage,” the editorial board wrote. “In fact, if the minimum wage had kept pace over time with the average growth in productivity, it would be about $17 an hour. The problem is that the benefits of that growth have flowed increasingly to profits, shareholders and executives, not workers.”
