Enrollment for 2018 Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) starts on November 1 and ends on December 15. The current administration has cut the funds to announce when people can enroll. Please reblog and #Resist

they have also scheduled some 12-hour “maintenance sessions” to occur on sundays during the enrollment period so be aware of those as well.

Also there’s one scheduled for the first night so be aware of that.

They’re basically doing everything in their power to make it as difficult as possible so young and healthy people don’t bother signing up in an effort to kill the program that way. Please don’t let that happen spread this around and sign up.

I’m reblogging this every single Fucking time I see it


these people have had all fucking year to do maintenance and they decide to do it several times precisely during the enrollment period. un-fucking-believable. as someone who works in IT (programmer), this is the biggest load of shit in the history of ever. don’t be fooled.

Bernie Sanders’ single-payer bill is one of the most ambitious programs in modern American history

On Wednesday, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) finally rolled out his plan to fundamentally change the American health care system. Though Sanders has proposed different universal health care proposals in the past, this new proposal will enjoy support from a wide swath of his Democratic Senate colleagues.What’s more, according to the proposal, details of which leaked late Tuesday night, Sanders’ intentions for the program are far more ambitious than what most close observers expected.

When you need to one-up your American Hero status.

McCain did the right thing. The republicans don’t have a bill… Don’t have a plan. They wanted to vote yes on something that they KNEW wouldn’t work…that they KNEW would be a disaster.. With a promise to fix it “later”.

If this whole thing has been a football game the start of the session is the kickoff. The GOP has been limping this thing down the field by chance with no plan… No idea what will happen next.

They’re at the two yard line and they’re saying, “we have no plan, but if you vote yes to get it in the end zone THEN we’ll figure it out. We haven’t been able to come up with anything that will help people but NOW we’ll solve the problem… Just vote yes on a bad bill and we’ll make a good one. Pinky swear.”

It’s a bad idea. It’s not realistic. And it’s not how the United States Senate should be conducting business.

McCain stood up to his party today in favor of Americans and in favor of working in a fair, bipartisan way.

I am relieved and thankful for him.

Revised version of Senate health care plan would still lead to 22 million more uninsured

  • A revised version of Senate Republicans’ Better Care Reconciliation Act did nothing to increase the number of people with health insurance, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said Thursday. The plan would still leave 22 million more people uninsured over the next decade.
  • Senate GOP leadership amended the BCRA after a revolt from Republican senators.
  • But the CBO said the revised version of the bill did little to change the underlying problem: The bill would lead people to lose their health care coverage and increase costs for certain subsets of the population. Read more (7/20/17 2 PM)
