    The only people that bought that were the suckers.

    “Zeke Emanuel: The individual market is going away.”

    Again, who didn’t see this coming?

    “Expect more of this: Virginia Democrat calls for forcing doctors to accept Medicare and Medicaid patients.”

    Yep, they always think that force will make it work. smh.

    • JD says:

      I guess they’ll start forcing people to become doctors too, since this will only disincentivize joining the profession.

      • Perry says:

        They’ll recruit all those folks that have been staying at Holiday Inn Express.

        Really though, a lot of docs are fed up now, just wait if they try something like this.

    So, in other words, it was a lie of omission.

    “Zeke Emanuel: The individual market is going away.”

    To be fair, he is quoted as saying “THAT” individual market, which is different than saying “the” individual market.

    “Expect more of this: Virginia Democrat calls for forcing doctors to accept Medicare and Medicaid patients.”

    Freedom in your own job? Not in Obama’s country.

    “Officials worried, though, that delving into details such as the small number of people who might lose insurance could be confusing and would clutter the president’s message.”

    …Well they were definitely right about one thing – telling the truth would certainly have cluttered his message.
