We often wonder just where the righties we know get the factual garbage they spew. Many are sincere, but the Republican noise machine and truth are mutually exclusive. The greatest violator of all is, of course, the Republican Reichsministry of Propaganda, Faux Noise. This is especially true where ObamaCare is concerned.

Does this sad dimwit know the meaning of the word 'rape'? She says she uses it in the meaning of the word to plunder or to steal I bet many many women the world over wished that they had merely had stuff stolen rather than being RAPED what an unbelievable moron where did she graduate from and in what? If you look at her body language it is very strange most hangdog and weird turn the sound off and look at her she is very strange indeed. I think more may emerge about her in the months to come.

Definition of evil (adj)
morally bad: profoundly immoral or wrong
harmful: deliberately causing great harm, pain, or upset
causing misfortune: characterized by, bringing, or signifying bad luck
Yup TC--meets all three definitions of evil.
Fox is a Rupert Murdoch mouthpiece and meets 'the standards' of his now defunct UK gossip rags (think of the historic reputation of The Enquirer for ethics and accuracy in journalism)

From someone with two college degrees one would expect more drive to get a good deal on the ACA, but drive seems to be what this woman is lacking in general. Perhaps that is one of the reasons she has not been able to find a job yet, something she probably blames on Obama too. The people invited to talk on Fox are so brainwashed that they only hear what fits their expectations, so as soon as she hears that her plan is going to cost her almost 300 dollars more, this peace falls in its allocated place and she neglects to find out what benefits she also might receive, because "benefit" and Obamacare can not cohabit in the same brain space. If the brain is set to prejudice against Obamacare, then nothing can entice the owner to have a look at what the market has to offer them, as Eric Stern soon found out.
Sadly, most if not all human beings are both prejudiced one way or another and not prone to make things difficult for themselves. So if Fox, GOP, TP or whatever entity has found the right button in their brain and it is set in anti-Obamacare mode, there is no reason or logic enough in the world to persuade people otherwise.

They know damn well they are lying. And if they don't know they are Stupid for not getting all of their facts straight. Seems like most of these hosts and guests on Faux News have fecal matter for brains.

"Unfortunately, someone forgot to mention to Ashley that her premiums were offset with subsidies, so she would really pay $223 per YEAR as well as receiving assistance with copayments. Oops."
So. It turns out that not only are Republicans really bad at remembering history (this is THEIR plan, after all, their alternative to Bill Clinton's plan) they also suck at math. There's quite a bit of difference between $319 a month and the less than $20 she will actually pay. And just because she is a woman, she does NOT get a free pass on using the word "rape" out of context. There is only ONE way a rape is committed and it is not financial, she ought be ashamed of cheapening what is a truly horrific female experience in such a tawdry way just to make her ridiculously incorrect comment about the ACA. I get a kick out of your comment, Chris, but the only time I ever hear any of Faux noise is on Rachel or Lawrence's shows. And even that bit is too much.

College??? She went to college???? And she can't figure out that if she gets really sick, or injured, she needs to have some kind of health insurance because the days of being able to afford a trip to the emergency room are gone (I paid for several, when my kids were young, out of pocket and it certainly didn't bust my budget). And it goes against her to get on Medicaid? Good for her. Now she needs to quit complaining about a law that won't affect her at all because, as she says, she is "poor" and the law, basically, exempts anyone who is "poor". She started off complaining about not being able to get a decent paying job. THAT is what she should be complaining about on Faux news. Any company that pays decent offers 40 hrs, because most are salaried positions. If she is complaining about part time work because of employers having to provide health insurance, she's way off base again. Only the companies who have over 50 employees must offer insurance. A company with over 50 employees isn't a small business. It's a corporation. And the problem isn't with poor business owners who can't afford to pay well and offer health benefits, it is with greedy corporations who refuse to share the profits with the people who are allowing for them to rake those profits in. And the reason all that is happening is because our Republican friends stripped regulations on how corporations can do business in this country. I get so tired of the stupidity. Does anyone "think for themselves" anymore? Enjoy your day, TC and thanks for the news here. I, personally, can't watch the orb games anymore. When I learned that each hit is like being hit by a car going 35 miles an hour, that was it for me.
One area of confusion is over the **10 Essential Health Benefits** Many of the super cheap premium health insurance plan options did not meet this criteria prior to the Affordable Healthcare Act, and/or required much higher out-of-pocket payments.
"A set of health care service categories that must be covered by certain plans, starting in 2014. The Affordable Care Act ensures health plans offered in the individual and small group markets, both inside and outside of the Health Insurance Marketplace, offer a comprehensive package of items and services, known as essential health benefits. Essential health benefits must include items and services within at least the following 10 categories: ambulatory patient services; emergency services; hospitalization; maternity and newborn care; mental health and substance use disorder services, including behavioral health treatment; prescription drugs; rehabilitative and habilitative services and devices; laboratory services; preventive and wellness services and chronic disease management; and pediatric services, including oral and vision care.
Insurance policies must cover these benefits in order to be certified and offered in the Health Insurance Marketplace. States expanding their Medicaid programs must provide these benefits to people newly eligible for Medicaid."

One could make a career out fact checking Faux noise. Geezzzzz, I'd almost do it for nothing and it would be so easy. If just use Faux noise's own criteria for truthfulness I'd just label everything a lie and be correct 90% of the time.

we have known for sometime that the fake snooze network and the right wing billionaires boy's club plants phoney stories and people play the roles they are paid to play the Reich ministry has no shame

"Overall, the conclusion has to be that it's not the ACA inflicting pain, it's the lies conservatives have sold as truth causing pain. Anyone with even a small crack in an otherwise closed mind will discover that the ACA is far less painful than what they've been spoon-fed by Murdoch's minions."
This sums it up nicely. Check out your position with the exchanges or with the government website. Don't listen to conservative pundits. Your healthcare is not their problem. They have their own agenda, and it isn't you, America.

spammer flagged but they just reappear tomorrow with a different name! concur with your faux facts premise but you really should realize that the radical left is just as full of BS as the radical right. I wish we were done with both. Unfortunately it is them and their supporters that give us perpetual gridlock.
