    Writer factchecks Hannity. It's not pretty:

    Two others who complained on Hannity about rates going up had not bothered to check the exchanges. So the writer did and found policies for them that not only far less than they said they were going to have to pay, but less that they've been paying.

    exception? These are people who went on Fox in front of millions of people and grossly misrepresented how the ACA was affecting them. You don't think that should be pointed out?

    I'll bet that are tens of thousands of freeloaders and the like that will find ways to steal everything that can from this boondoggle tax.

    But how many people watching are seeking the straight scoop? I mean it's Hannity. He (and most others) have an agenda, and his viewers know it.

    IOW, I guess I don't find it too outrageous. If I am determined to hate ACA then I'll watch Hannity. If I'm determined to like it I'll watch Ed. And if I want to actually learn the details and form my own opinion, I'll sell my TV.

    Or watch John Stewart. I keeed! A little.

    I'd blow-it-up if I could too. Figuratively speaking only of course.

    One of our part time employees just approached me is week to help figure out their health insurance issues. Their other employer is dropping health insurance (not sure for how many but for them). Restaurant industry is what that job was in for one of the big chains/franchises. And you don't ink it has to do with obamacare?

    I am extremely worried about our new rates which I will get in a few weeks...

    Oh, Obama sent those people on Fox to pretend they were getting screwed over, hoping that someone would fact check it and find out they weren't being quite honest, is that it? Was Hannity in on it, too?

    How to mislead on ACA --

    - tell people they will save avg of $2500 on premiums instead of paying that much or more extra
    - tell them it won't mess then up keeping their current plans and doctors
    - tell them it won't involve rationing care

    And so on.

    my point is that you are so damned worried about how a couple of people may have duped hannity about how bad the ACA is going to affect them and yet you have no qualms about 1-how bad the aca is and how bad it is going to affect a lot of normal everyday Americans

    add to that you are so desperate to try and find something on Fox and yet you seem to have zero problems with a Prez who made decisions and moves during the slowdown that hurt everyday Americans- when that sort of thing bothers you then I might be more inclined to join in on someone duping Fox or Hannity-until then it is just more liberal bulla bulla

    Bill, you and other conservatives complain about the media here continually. Usually, it doesn't involve specifics, just the general complaint about the media picking on the poor ol' beleaguered right.
    But one post with specifics about Fox's phony stuff and you go off on this rant. Right, media criticism should only come from right.
    I mean, damn.

    Sure, point them out. And we will point out that of 496,000 who have put in applications for insurance through the exchanges only about 50,000 have actually applied for a policy and we don't know how many have actually paid the first month's premium.

    And we will also point out the "phony" applicants touted by the administration.

    Answer one question. Is the ACA roll out going well or badly?

    Now this a "specific" argument... No generalizations there.
