    Clinton just misunderstood Obama's words. He couldn't have known. Only 5% anyway. Junk insurance. Better in the marketplace. Etc.

    Hows he going to do it at this point? Assuming he decides to do so?

    By doing this in a public way, Bill is playing politics. He will take advantage of the disaster to make some positive political hay for Hillary. He's smart like that.

    The problem is, Obama was making promises on the behalf of others.

    Yeah I think this is exactly what he's doing. Let the distancing begin.

    He's just laying groundwork for Hilary. Being the first "first husband" must be high on his bucket list.

    Clinton is very savvy - he's looking like the concerned benefactor for the masses while keeping the Clinton-name at the forefront. It would be very, very, very difficult/next to impossible for insurance carriers to all of a sudden put the brakes on and say "Okay, folks, have it your way!" Creating, implementing and managing insurance products over a state or nation is not like being a short-order cook, as some in this administration have discovered.

    Clinton is distancing himself/his wife. FYI: Hillary was Secy of State when Obamacare was voted on by Congress; so, she did not vote on it.

    It's not being first husband - it's the perks that go with it. :joecool:

    obama is now a lame duck president. He has nothing going for him and has no creditability. He has no leverage to get anything accomplished and the country would be better off for him to resign. Clinton will turn all but a very few of the Dem against obama. Going to be fun to watch obama squirm and try to stick his nose higher in the air to say he is getting what he deserves is a understatement

    This will tear Hollywood apart. They love both Clinton and Obama. Whose side will they take? It will be interesting to see how this ignorant bunch responds. Will they still rip the reps for saying what Clinton has said?

    Obama may put a "stop payment" on the check his campaign wrote to clear Hillary's campaign debt if it has not cleared. Clinton better run that sumbitch to the bank and get a cashiers check...quick.

    It would be funnier if Hussein's check bounced and they could get him on 'writing bad checks' charge....lol.

    And the result would be similar to Al Capone---couldn't prosecute on legit charges so they got him on income tax evasion. Hussein--can't get him on anything else being Teflon and lying like he does, but a measly bad check charge would put him behind bars!!

    Would love it if possible....but it is fun to dream of such wonderful things now isn't it. :)

    Does he think he could sneak back into the Oval Office with an older, heavier Lewinsky?

    Clinton to Obama: Keep your promise, don't lie to the American people.

    Obama to Clinton: It depends on what is the definition of a "promise." Kind of a pot calling the kettle black.

    Oops, a racist remark. Ignore the last sentence.

    The only thing that makes sense is Bill wants the disaster because if Hillary becomes president she would look good comparatively. Not that it says much.

    Assuming your question is serious, adding a provision to the law that allows insurance plans that were in place prior to an existing date to be grandfathered into the new law would solve the problem. There is presently a bill, I think in the House, to do that....but don't quote me on that aspect. I'm going off of memory.

    I imagine it would have bipartisan support.

    Small Business and ObamaCare
    A new survey shows that employers will drop coverage and cut hours.

    Opinion Strategies survey of more than 400 business owners with between 40 and 500 employees conducted in September and October for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and International Franchise Association. Some 64% of small business franchise owners (such as owners of fast food and retail stores) believe the law will have a "negative impact" on their business, while only 5% expect a "positive impact." For non-franchise businesses the ratio was 53% negative and 12% positive. Only one in 12 agree with the President that the health-care law will "help" their business.

    Even more problematic is how businesses are already responding to the new law. The White House continues to deny any relationship between hiring and ObamaCare. The poll finds 27% of franchise businesses and 12% of non-franchises have already replaced full-time with part-time employees in anticipation of the law's employer mandate. ObamaCare defines a full-time employee as someone who works 30 hours or more a week.

    Hillary would travel a lot and Bill already knows the underground entrances to the WH.

    Mary Landrieu is the one who put forth the legislation. Here is the problem that this poses to Obamacare, it throws their numbers into a tailspin in regard to their calculated estimations. This policy is essentially on life support because of it's preexisting conditions.
