My Grandfather, Who Has Hated President Obama, Just Called...

He asked if I was watching the President speak on television today....

I said "I am, and I am agreeing with him 100% (I like to rib him a little bit )

He said, "Wait, let me finish...I can't believe I'm going to say this, but I am agreeing with him too....these Republicans who won't raise the debt ceiling are assholes!"

He then went on to say how he found out today that under Obamacare, he and my grandmother are going to save $63 a month on their premiums!

We may be at a turning point here!

22. As far as I know

our Medicare supplement isn't as far as I know. Ours changes in June.

Our Part D is going to cost us a whole lot more. Trying to find something cheaper but the Medicare.gov site makes mention that due to the government shut down might not be up to date. This gets to be a nightmare. I don't know how someone a lot older and more feeble manage figuring out these plans unless they have some great help.

36. Just goes to show ya...

SOME health care insurance companies, including those that provide Medicare supplemental insurance, were still ripping off their customers before the 80% law in the ACA took effect.

For my part, my choice for Medicare supplemental insurance apparently was a little more honest and patient/client oriented. I got a letter from them last year informing me that their standards for % of premiums paid being applied to health care exceeded the standards required under the new health care law, thus they were happy to point out that they didn't have to reimburse me.

And that's a GOOD thing.

47. You just tapped into something I think isn't discussed enough.

The "gambling" nature of so many Americans. They want extra money to play the lottery, or on-line poker (where there is a huge business) as well as gambling with their healthcare as my younger sister does with her husband and son. No health insurance. I don't even know if they'll look into the ACA. I should drop an email her way. I'm waiting for a few more kinks to be ironed out.

But as for us here in PA, I am very optimistic about our chances of getting Corbett out as Governor and picking up some seats, especially here in Western PA in the 12th district currently held by Tea Party right-winger to the max, Keith Rothfus. I've heard that Republicans in Westmoreland County (a big GOP county) are not happy with him regarding federal funding for flood damaged areas.

33. I actually wanted Mark Singel to run

since he is known state-wide and had once been Lt. Governor.... but would probably go with Schwartz mainly because there's a possibility that Bill Clinton might throw his weight behind her like he did Kathleen Kane. He has an ability to talk to a certain demographic that's needed to put someone like Schwartz over the top - especially in a time when alot of the Central PA GOP voters hate Corbett because of the Sandusky mess. Also the person running for Schwartz's seat is Chelsea's mother-in-law...

If a Democrat does get in in 2014, that would break a 50 year precedent here in PA where each governor since ~1961 has been elected to 2 terms (although not all served them out though).

I am only familiar with the name and the fact he is from Johnstown, but I would have loved to see him run!

And you are right about Central PA voters. Like I said, I'm in Cambria, kind of the border between where Western PA ends and Central PA begins, and there is not a lot of love for Corbett, even in GOP areas. Because of both the Sandusky mess and his cuts to education which have hurt a lot of rural schools.

Being in Philly, the schools are in horrible financial shape thanks to Corbett but if the rest of the state was tossed under the bus too and are complaining, then hopefully that will seal it... Hoping they sit home and let Democrats take back over!

I'm thinking that even a lot of hard core Republicans are going to have a tough time supporting Corbett. His approval is usually in the 20s, so there is a big number of self described "conservatives" that don't approve of the job he is doing.

Most Teabaggers/Republicans/Faux Addicts refuse to listen to the President at all. I figure it's because they're so invested in their hate, they can't allow themselves to agree with anything he says, ever, under any circumstances. So, they make sure they never actually hear him say anything.

Glad your grandfather isn't like that.

37. Your grandfather's $63 savings is why the Republicans are extorting Obama...

Obamacare will give people access to great healthcare, and in many cases, they will save money.

The sky won't fall.

The country won't implode.

The United States won't crumble into the ocean.

America will love it. Just like Massachusetts loves Romneycare. The latest poll shows that 85 percent of Mass citizens LOVE Romneycare.

That's what the Republicans are afraid of. They know that Obamacare will succeed. They know that people like your grandfather will save money.

The Republican party will be revealed as chicken-little liars and fear mongers, and they'll also be the party who tried to rob people ofa access to quality, affordable healthcare--if Obamacare is fully implemented.

They can't have that. This is why all of these Boehner tantrums are happening.

61. Ain't it sad that it's always $$$ that changes people's minds.

The Montgomery bus boycott didn't end because the white bus owners started liking Black folks, they folded because they were losing money.
As you can well see, they NEVER got around to liking Black folks.

66. My sons' six kids call me "grandpa".

...and I feel the same as yours.

They all know this and have been coached not to get grandpa's fucking blood pressure up. I can be quite cantakerous, and I swear.

68. SCOTUS needs to make a ruling.

When Congress voted to spend the money, this is when it was authorized. Any subsequent votes to raise an arbitrary debt ceiling is unnecessary.
