Oh great, people arguing their definition of democracy is the only good one. Please continue, this is fascinating.

 

And what is your definition?

My definition won't change anyones's mind. It's far more complicated than that. How did you know I wasn't thrilled honestly to see the exchange?

Ha!   Weak.

 

I ask again, regardless of who's mind it will change:  what is your definition of democracy?  I'm personally curious.

THAT MEANS IT’S WORKING:

 

6.5 million Americans chose to pay the fine rather than sign up for insurance on the Obamacare exchanges.

 

Insurance so good, people won’t even buy it under penalty of law.

 

:doh:

That's it?  I never bothered to look at the numbers before this year, but I thought it would be much higher than that.  Is that a good barometer for the CBO to work off of for any future repeal efforts?

So what you're saying is that there will be an additional 6.5 million people without access to health insurance if Obamacare is repealed?!?

 

Well, according to CBO logic anyhow, who consistently failed to differentiate the people who don't want to buy insurance (but do anyhow because of the penalty tax) from those who might actually legitimately lose coverage they want to overpay for when scoring the GOP proposals.

Iceland is on pace to virtually eliminate Down syndrome through abortion. #CBSNOA learns more, tonight at 10pm ET/PT http://cbsn.ws/2uGMd5G 

 

 

 

 

Nearly 100% of women in Iceland whose unborn baby tests positive for Down syndrome are aborting them. From CBS News:

Since prenatal screening tests were introduced in Iceland in the early 2000s, the vast majority of women — close to 100 percent — who received a positive test for Down syndrome terminated their pregnancy.

While the tests are optional, the government states that all expectant mothers must be informed about availability of screening tests, which reveal the likelihood of a child being born with Down syndrome. Around 80 to 85 percent of pregnant women choose to take the prenatal screening test, according to Landspitali University Hospital in Reykjavik.

 

 

They act like it is the test that’s eliminating Down syndrome …

 

Iceland isn't actually eliminating Down Syndrome. They're just killing everybody that has it. Big difference. #Downsyndrome#abortion https://twitter.com/CBSNews/status/897254042178650113 

 

Gosh, what’s the word for killing people with a certain trait or disability – it’s on the tip of our tongue

That's always been my confusion with the CBO score.  Do they count that 6.5 million who pay the fine as people who will lose insurance?

What about those who do not want health insurance, or at least do not need it and do not want to be forced to have to buy it?

 

Like voluntary unemployment, they are out there in large droves.

Quick reminder while you are worrying about inanimate objects..................

 

 

Last Obamacare insurer in Iowa wants 57% rate hike next year

 

“The proposal is 13 percentage points higher than previously was estimated by Medica…”

 

 

 

Nothing to see here.
