        He certainly has stamina and endurance and like President Obama, he is in this for the long haul. I admire that. Loyal he is. I also believe President Obama is loyal to him. I like the way he surrounds himself with smart, diligent, intelligent people.

    The Bridge to healthcare for the working poor. THIS is the news that should be shouted from the rooftops. …and the true Obamacare CRIME is the number of GOP Governors willing to deny the working poor of their state access to healthcare.

    At Least 1.5 Million People Enrolled In Medicaid Since Obamacare Launch

    Dylan Scott – December 3, 2013, 12:01 PM EST

    Nearly 1.5 million Americans have enrolled in Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program since the state Obamacare marketplaces went live on Oct. 1, according to a new report released Tuesday.

    The report from the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is the most comprehensive look yet at how the low-income public insurance programs are faring under the health care reform law. It covers the month of October, and CMS said that more reports would be released on a monthly basis.

    The total includes both those who are newly eligible for Medicaid in states that expanded the program and those in all states who were already eligible. They were funneled to the program both through the state-based insurance marketplaces that have opened under Obamacare and other sources (applying through local government offices, etc.).

    Coverage for those newly eligible under the Medicaid expansion starts on Jan. 1, 2014.

    It does not, however, include those deemed eligible through HealthCare.gov, which is serving 36 states. According to CMS, the automatic transfer of applications from the federal website to state Medicaid agencies is not yet fully functional, so those numbers haven’t been finalized. In the administration’s last enrollment report, it said that 183,000 people in states using HealthCare.gov had been found eligible for Medicaid.

      It’s not in the corporate-owned media’s best interest to report any positive news about disadvantaged Americans, and particularly POC. It’s thugs, rogues, hoes, pimps, and welfare queens!

    Lauren Silverman: An Obamacare Success Story: From The High Risk Pool To The Marketplace For A Lot Less

    More than 20,000 people rely on the state run Texas Health Insurance Pool. The pool insures folks with pre-existing health conditions who can’t find coverage elsewhere. In a few months, that risk pool will no longer exist. And at least one North Texas family is celebrating. Right after he retired a decade ago, Bob Flood learned he had cancer and a kidney would have to be removed. Just one month after he lost his kidney, he lost his health insurance. “The only place I could get health insurance was through the Texas health risk pool. And that is 200 to 400 percent above what the average person pays,”

    Flood says. Flood’s family policy was more than three thousand a month. His wife Amy says they tried to write the check once a year to avoid seeing the bill so often. “That was a sizeable chunk of change,” Amy Flood says. “And frankly I would have rather given it to other needy people rather than just to an insurance consortium.” But the Floods wanted to be responsible, so they agreed to grin and bear it. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, they don’t have to anymore. “Now we have a policy which covers the three of us for less than a thousand dollars a month.”

      Thanks for this. It’s stories like the Flood’s that has the GOP, some insurance companies media hacks scrambling and continuing to beat the” OBAMACARE ain’t shit” drum.

  8. Ametia says:

    Jay: ” First of all it’s not called Obamacare, it’s private health insurance.” the media folks are willfully IGNORANT

  9. Ametia says:

    Jay Carney is bitch-slapping the press today. They’ll be nice and butt-hurt by the time POTUS gives his statement.
