Sean Hannity has been fact-checked, and the results aren't pretty.

"In an article posted on Salon on Friday, Eric Stern 're-reported' a recent episode of Fox News' 'Hannity' during which host Sean Hannity invited six guests to tell their Obamacare "horror stories."

According to Stern, there was a lot more to each of the guests' stories than Hannity led on. Stern decided to conduct his own investigation by separately interviewing each guest, and what he said he found was not that the guests were cheated by Obamacare, but rather that they had tried very little, if at all, to participate in the ACA."

I have a nephew with 2 children who makes just under 30K a year. His wife makes half of that. He is complaining that he now has to pay $90 a month for insurance; he had none before. I asked him what did he do when he had his appendix out a few years ago. He said he pays them a little bit any time he can. (Do you see the problem yet?). Oh, and he and his wife both have smart phones which I would guess cost a bit more than $90 a month. Oh, and they have cable with all of the extras too. Oh, and their cars are newer than mine. I could go on, but I won't. People need to step up and take responsibility for themselves and their families. Hopefully, this will be a start.
ITT/Gould's requires their employees to purchase health insurance. They also pay enough so people don't have to choose between health care and groceries. If only all large corporations operated like that. Employers need to step up and stop being so greedy so the workers of to country can at least have health, home, and nutrition out of their day's labor.

As a fellow Democrat, I thank you for your comment. Republicans think they are the only people that think this way.

Just heard on CBS news that 17 million people have visited the Healthcare.gov website, but only 20,000 have enrolled (and some of that 20,000 is actually duplicates because people enrolled, then unenrolled, then re-enrolled, because of problems with the system).

Another fine example of government's ability to run an efficient program.

Then you heard wrong. The number is around one half million as of a few days ago.

There's another fine example of conservatives willingness to say anything they want in order to take down a Black, Democratic President, regardless of the fact that what they're saying is total BS.

"Administration officials say more than 476,000 health insurance applications have been filed through federal and state exchanges. The figures mark the most detailed measure yet of the problem-plagued rollout of the insurance market place.

However, the officials continue to refuse to say how many people have actually enrolled in the insurance markets.
"

There's another fine example of Liberals willingness to say anything they want in order to take down the truth, regardless of the fact that what they're saying is total BS.

Or maybe some people just can't read the article THEY posted \:D \:D \:D

It is certainly possible that it was REPORTED wrong, but I assure you, I did not HEAR it wrong.

You are not wrong. Some people can't read. See my post above. You clearly spoke about the number of people ENROLLED. Some brain dead Liberal hack tried to use the number of APPLICATIONS.

Brain dead Liberal hack in 3,2,1

Their intentions are not the issue.

Greymane clearly stated, "only 20,000 have enrolled".

You incorrectly stated, "The number is around one half million as of a few days ago."

As proof, you posted a article which clearly states, "Administration officials say more than 476,000 health insurance applications have been filed... officials continue to refuse to say how many people have actually enrolled in the insurance markets."

No doubt a result of making the same mistake as Greymane by NOT seeking out readily available information. But then again, you do have a certain proclivity for speaking before familiarizing yourself with the facts. So, no surprise there.
