Bill Maher: I want to correct this one idea they have, that Americans donít like Obamacare, because I see this poll all the time. 54% of Americans are against Obamacare. Not really true, because 16% of that 54% want it to be more Left. They want single payer. So itís really only 38% of the people who are on your team (Tea Party Team).

Matt Kibbe: I donít think thatís right.

Bill Maher: No, that is right. Those are facts. We are not arguing opinion now. Those are the facts.

Rep. Alan Grayson: And these are people who recognize that there are fundamental, how should I put this, conflict of interest between you and your insurance company. Even if we switch to no government involvement at all, people would still get insurance and they would be in a situation where every time you needed care you would be taking money out of the pockets, the profit of your insurance company. And we havenít taken a step beyond that.

But Obamacare does do useful things.

Itís put 4 million people who are up to the age of 26 on the rolls by joining their parentsí plans.
Itís closed 3/4 of the donut hole so seniors donít have to choose between their medicines and pay their rent.
It has taken 35 million people including my wife by the way, 35 million people who couldnít get insurance because of pre-existing conditions, now they can.
And now, insurance companies if you have expensive care canít literally pull the plug on you when you are in a coma.


Those are all good things. And those are all things that the Tea Party is desperate to eliminate.

We will know way before then? Massachusetts published yesterday and they were one of the states that was most prepared. they just topped 100 people, and they are all 100% subsidized.

No paying customers yet!

Yep! they were set up and ready to roll, and they found 100 freeloaders? so it is likely that other states are not even having that rate of success?

Man this ACA is good for the country? Well if you are not working and have no intention of ever working anyway

You actually see that having 100 people sign up in a state that already had some form of the plan to begin with as a positive outcome?

Americans...
