Psh. As if!

MSNBC’s worked too hard to cultivate its lapdog status, and it’s not ready to throw that away. Not on Alex Wagner’s watch!

It’s working just fine! All is well!

She’d make a great Obama sidekick!

That’s a good little lapdog.

    • ObamaFail

      GOP fearmongering? How is it fearmongering when you just point out the facts about Obamacare? The libs just can’t stand when the facts about the negative things Obamacare is causing are mentioned by the right. When any of us mention the millions of people dropped from their coverage, or the millions dropped down to part-time, the libs start yelling “THEY ARE JUST FEARMONGERING!!!” It’s all they have, because they have prepared themselves for the Paradise they believed was coming October 1, and now that it’s turned out to be just another mess caused by Democrat incompetence, they just want to accuse us of fearmongering.

  • ObamaFail

    What happens when the first Obamacare enrollee goes to see a doctor and the doctor can’t bring up their insurance information because they’re getting errors? Or what if the doctor won’t take Obamacare patients (there are doctors in my town who won’t take Medicare patients, so it’s possible some doctors will protest Obamacare by not accepting people who get insurance through it)? Will the libs still defend it? Or will that be the moment they begin pushing the lie that the GOP passed it without reading it?

    • WhoDat

      They could refuse to accept it. It’s private insurance, and some already don’t accept certain insurance.

      • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

        and which carriers pray tell do Doctors often refuse?

        Ones like Molina, contracted to cover Medicaid patients in Ohio. Many physicians won’t take it, few eye doctors, a handful of low rent dental practices..

        Both sis in laws are on Medicaid, and finding a doctor can be a huge pain, because they don’t get fully reimbursed.

        regular private insurance like Blue Cross..

        everybody takes..

        Workers Comp Medicaid, Medicare, ANY government contracted insurance, you then have to hunt like Hell for a doctor who takes it.. we have exactly one…

        just one,

        MD general surgeon in a town of 70,000 who accepts Workers Comp claims cases.. Been seeing him, since my back was broken in 04, and seeing him takes 3-6hours, as workers walk in and your appointment is bumped for triage, understandable,.. but they discourage you at the county hospital from coming in the ER for job related injuries, they have.. “trouble” being paid by the state WC board.

        The government has made everything they touch regarding healthcare a joke.

    Unless the ACA was meant to cost jobs or lose employees hours, meant to create sky-high premiums, meant to cause people to lose their existing insurance, and meant to fiscal black hole, I would say that it has indeed failed.

        • US vs. Them

          The tone of political “debate” across the country – especially online – is not healthy. At all. I dont agree with everyone’s politics but I dont claim those same politics are “destroying America” BOTH sides are equally guilty. (And sites like this are pure gasoline – there’s no discourse, its just “We’re trying to save the country and anyone who has a difference of opinion is trying to destroy America”)

            you lie.
            The vicious attacks on the Republican women is shameful, but the left has no problems advocating that GOP’s minor aged daughter be raped – just all a big laugh for them….
            NO one on the left stood up for human decency then, now did they?

          • Malcolm Reynolds

            Not quite.
            There’s only one party rushing headlong into fundamental transformation (into what Mr President? into what you slack jawed leftists?) and destruction of the western way of life and the US const.
            And then there’s the GOP. Infected with the same progressive disease the democrat party has and at best is utterly incapable of fending off the leftist assault and at worst abets them.
            And then there’s that tiny ray of hope called the Tea Party that isn’t a party, and is being led by, as Chris Mathews called him ‘the greatest threat to progressivism in modern history’, Ted Cruz.
            And THAT is why he and others like him are called ‘bombs-strapped-to-chest-terrorists. There’s only one media side spewing venom and outright lies and it isn’t the one that gives the right a fair shake.

        Like they did to Sarah Palin?

        • Guest

          Actually Sarah Palin seems to do it to herself – lets read a transcript of interview with Fox and Friends THIS morning:

          “When Jesus celebrated Easter with his disciples there were no Easter bunnies or egg hunts. There were no Easter sales at department stores or parades in the street. Easter was a special time of prayer and Christian activism.

          “Jesus would gather all the townspeople around and would listen to their stories about the meaning of Easter in their lives. Then he would teach them how to love one another, how to protest Roman abortion clinics and how to properly convert homosexuals.

          You can’t even do things like that these days without getting called out by some wacko left-wing human rights group. Christians had more freedom under Roman rule than we do now in our own country! We need to return Easter back to the way it was when Jesus was alive.”

          Not even her biggest critic could make this up

          • http://a.disquscdn.com/uploads/mediaembed/images/1181/6595/original.jpg filter

            So does that justify late night hosts like that old buzzard – what’s his name…gaped tooth guy – just can’t recall it’s name… who advocated that a black baseball player rape her minor aged daughter?.

            Calling her a kunt, burning her image in effigy in public?

            Putting a target on her face?Asking for her to be gangraped?

            So what that those are her beliefs – better her than a MB sympathizer/supporter.

            Guy that obama supported in Egypt has far worse beliefs and yet Obama bows down to them and that’s ok…

            But she is right Christians are under attack – world wide.

    “The ACA site failed, but Obamacare didn’t”

    Except that the people running Obamacare made the website and claimed it was ready to launch. If they do badly botched a website, why should I trust them to run healthcare? For crying out loud, ten-year-olds can do a better job of making a website and for substantially less money.

    And of course, as liberals keep “forgetting” to take into account, the problems with Obamacare go much farther than the website. What about the pricing? Last I checked, it was supposed to be cheaper than the old way. Of course, you also were supposed to be able to keep your plan if you liked it and that obviously didn’t pan out for a lot of people.

  • WhoDat

    Had they not launched the website on Oct. 1, I wonder what fake outrage there would have been.
