    GE TOD, Congrats JB :) Thanks for providing audio of the teleconference, Chips!

    People losing their insurance is a bigger story, unfortunately, than people getting insurance for the first time.

    1. PEOPLE WITH THESE POLICIES FREQUENTLY DON’T LIKE THEM.
    2. PEOPLE WITH THESE POLICIES DON’T TYPICALLY HAVE THEM FOR VERY LONG.
    3. MANY, PROBABLY MOST PEOPLE WITH THESE POLICIES WILL FIND OBAMACARE POLICIES COST THEM LESS.
    4. THE PEOPLE GETTING WORSE DEALS TEND TO BE MORE AFFLUENT.
    5. PAYING MORE FOR INSURANCE MIGHT MEAN PAYING LESS FOR MEDICAL CARE.
    6. JUST BECAUSE YOU LIKED YOUR POLICY THIS YEAR, THAT DOESN’T MEAN YOU’D LIKE IT NEXT YEAR.

    ….It’s impossible to specify exactly how many people are going to be better off in the new system or how many will feel better off. Those two things are not the same. But both groups are probably the majority of people with non-group insurance—and quite probably a large majority. That would suggest relatively few people are like the ones we’re hearing and reading about so much in the media.

    That doesn’t mean the media or policymakers should ignore these people. Again, this is a very big country, which means even a very small percentage can number in the millions. But the media should give these stories the proper context—and put them in the proper perspective. Right now it isn’t.

      What can we do to help people sign up for Obamacare?

        Anniebella, if they have a computer and know how to use it, we can direct them to Healthcare.gov where they will probably be able to apply online. There is a link to every state from there. If they aren’t computer savvy, they can call 1-800-318-2596 and get help on the phone. The main thing is to ask your friends, relative, and neighbors if they have good health insurance and to explain why they may find a better deal on their state marketplace if they got cancelled or if they have no coverage. This does not apply to people old enough to be on Medicare. Look up barackobama.com/events and put in your zip code to see if a local OFA group is doing any leafletting or other educational events on Obamacare. Some states are.

    “Here in Washington state, we take education seriously. We’re home to world-class universities like the University of Washington and Washington State University. We’re taking innovative approaches to prepare our children for jobs of the future at places like Henrietta Lacks High School right here in Clark County. And our state’s Supreme Court ruled last year that we’re constitutionally obligated to fully fund a quality K-12 education system.

    But when it comes to early education and helping our children enter kindergarten ready to succeed, we have a long way to go. In Washington state, 91 percent of eligible 3-year-olds and 80 percent of eligible 4-year-olds don’t attend state- or federally funded preschool, and by the time they get to kindergarten, those children are far behind their peers on the path to success. It’s not fair to those kids, it’s not good for our state, and it’s time we did something about it. That’s why I joined a bipartisan group of my colleagues this week to introduce legislation that will give every child in Washington state and across the country access to high-quality early education.”

    I saw a tweet from OFA Md asking people to help them hand out ACA flyers. I thought that is something I could do here in IL.—–hand out flyers at the community college near me, and elsewhere. Now, does anyone know how I could get said flyers?

    Folks this why Don Lemon has been a Lemon for so many months now.

    He was pimping for a Gig. Now the gig is up

    http://www.mediaite.com/tv/cnns-don-lemon-getting-11-p-m-timeslot-mon-fri/

    Mediaite has learned through very reliable sources that CNN anchor Don Lemon will be getting his own program in the 11 P.M. hour at CNN. It will be a one-topic show tackling important issues of the day, either reported or vastly underreported, from Lemon’s unique perspective.

    We hear Lemon already informed his weekend staff of the change, and last weekend was his final weekend for CNN Newsroom. The show will be tested during the 11 P.M. hour in December, a timeslot currently occupied by reruns of AC360.

    Mediaite has also learned Lemon will be filling in for Erin Burnett on Outfront while she is on maternity leave.

    Health law helpers finding more luck on HealthCare.gov

    Source: Reuters

    NEW YORK (Reuters) – Healthcare workers assisting people to sign up for insurance on the HealthCare.gov marketplace on Monday told Reuters they had noticed improvement in the problem-plagued website.

    * * *
    “Saturday was the first day that I was actually able to get someone through the entire process on the website. That was pretty exciting. And I know on Saturday that wasn’t the case for everyone on my team, but more and more consistently we’re having success with it,” said Rachel Udow, program director for MHP, a community-based organization focused on migrant issues in Weslaco, Texas.

    If you want to stop abortions, it’s simple. Make sure everyone has health care, education and birth control. Not the exact opposite.

    Lift him up, Lift him up. Mr. President, we will always lift you up knowing that our lifting will enable you to lift up those who are not able for whatever reason to make the lift themselves. That is what a decent, caring, loving, thoughtful, and compassionate nation does.

    Thank you for continuing to inspire each of us to do our best to help you go to the Oval Office each day thinking about us, making decisions that will make life a little better for us, and doing it all in the face of forces of oppositional evils. But we will prevail because goodness of heart has the greater and more decent cause in our space. We will make it happen because it is the right thing to do. Saving a life is a great deposit to make in ones account of rightness for all. Just is the right thing to do. Just is good to be on the right side of history. Honored to be a part of your legacy, Mr. President. Thank you, Mr. President for caring and doing the right thing.

    Good night our beautiful Chips and TOD family. I love you all so dearly. We will make this happen.HZ
