Republicans have enjoyed themselves immensely during the Affordable Care Act’s bungled rollout, but most of the claims they’re making are preposterous
and phony. Since anyone able to take a longer view knows we’ll one day be well past Obamacare’s self-inflicted wounds, I’d like as a public service to catalog the GOP’s shabbiest arguments, so we’ll all have a handy reference once the worm fully turns.
The Affordable Care Act is popular here. Florida has the
second-highest rate of signups in the nation--only behind California. This is freaking amazing, considering that Rick Scott, the legislature, and our attorney general are working as hard as they can to make it as difficult as possible. People in this state are getting healthcare who never had it before.
The benefits of ACA for seniors are real: A $250M investment to fight fraud, the requirement that insurance companies offer free preventive care (like colorectal cancer) and the fact that the ACA finally CLOSES the medication donut hole!
After years of negative speculation on the part of the opponents of
Obamacare, hard data is finally coming in with respect to the anticipated
negative side-effects of the law.
While most all would agree that there are some repairs that need to be made to the Affordable Care Act, workable fixes designed to benefit the public and improve American healthcare cannot happen so long as politicians, pundits and special interests are devoted to lying about what Obamacare means and what it does not mean to the American public.
The results are guaranteed to both surprise and depress those who have built their narrative around the effort to destroy the Affordable Care Act.
Never before in American history have we seen a political party so completely dominated and controlled by its extremist wing; and never before have we seen a political party that brings together the attributes of nihilism, heartlessness, radicalism and naked partisanship quite like the modern GOP. In a two-party system like America’s, the result is unprecedented dysfunction.
Kids locked up in nursing homes. Leaky sewers. Mosquitoes unleashed. The Sunshine State has buyer’s remorse. Florida is where the rhetoric becomes the reality. It’s kind of the tea party on steroids. Support for Scott and the GOP is plummeting as Floridians see anti-government governance at work. But it may be too late for buyer’s remorse. After two years at the helm, the tea party’s legacy is likely to far outlast the movement. More
President Obama has announced his plan to better protect our children and our communities by reducing gun violence in America.
Take a look at the President’s plan to reduce gun violence, and stand with him in support:
Stand With The President
What can be said without equivocation is that Obama has proven himself morally, intellectually, temperamentally, and strategically. In our lifetime, or our parents’, he is easily the best president. On his own terms, and not merely as a contrast to an unacceptable alternative, he overwhelmingly deserves reelection... This is Why
Unions make the middle class strong by ensuring workers have a strong voice in both the market and in our democracy.
But as unions became weaker over the past four decades, they are less and less able to perform these functions–and the middle class withered.
When unions are strong they are able to ensure that workers are paid fair wages, receive the training they need to advance to the middle class, and are considered in corporate decision-making processes. Unions also promote political participation among all Americans, and help workers secure government policies that support the middle class, such as Social Security, family leave, and the minimum wage.
