Why is -- good people in the media have they fascination. With failure. They will take a number and they won't make the negative story out of it. The mainstream media I believe once Obama care to fail. They look for every negative number they can find they're afraid to do positive story because they're afraid that. Somebody might not watch. The media is just chariots and I'm afraid of that stuff around there. Repeating them over every moment of the many watchers they're making stuff up. Barely making stuff up. This is just newspaper stock. You know. These people -- these people posting on the message boards here in Massachusetts about now. If you have to name's Daniel Pearl last name you can't get on -- you have to say yes sure and partial or later you get cut off -- -- newspaper reporters putting that those faults woods.

Not what we did local officials. Did a horrible job during Katrina and look at the end of the day George W. Bush still appropriately. More than responsibilities. Are part of the the failure I don't know anybody is not taking responsibility well for the White House is trying to not take responsibility here now they're just. Pointing out that everyone's making it difficult it's not just their own botched rollout which they take responsibility for the real -- every step of the way every step of the way. The Republicans have tried to undermine this from top to bottom. And do many things they probably were part of the problem. Let's get that in response to that. That's absolutely true which makes it even more important to make us is an excellent work. That's right how good though -- want that to have so up. There are concerned that if you wait six months that the party that's been trying to undermine this every step of the way we'll we'll dig their fingernails backhand I think that and they have said they have a deadline and it will work and -- fifty Hudson I'm going to from myself off I mean it just happened with.

Addressing the legislation are you can -- by the president. Their planned use them. -- -- practice in front of -- games. Democratic sponsors. Because if he does he. The wrong approach to solve the problem of those who got transition -- But I would tell you is that the Upton bill allows insurers to sell 2013 plants in 2014. To any. It does not just continued when he thirteen plans and when he fourteenth for people -- -- -- plans. It's the problem that I just describing creates all sorts of problems for insurers who are trying to sell plans that meet the basic standards. And you know and it allows those insurers who would sell this when he thirteen plants that either. Charge you double or. Put caps on. Benefits or discharge any number of things that make doesn't know what's charges. -- the only insufficient when it comes to basic. Coverage and and basically sell them to any takers and obviously it's that coverage is substandard they would at least potentially be able to under sell those plans and and undermine. The basic premise of the Affordable Care Act which is to provide. Basic benefits. Affordable for affordable quality health insurance program. He would be the case for the senate I don't wanna I don't have the details on now I would -- that broadly speaking. That applies to the -- legislation broadly speaking that we do not see that as fixing a problem we see that is throwing media. In a baby out with the outlook. What.

She's she's the Obama voter and she she -- believe what your leaders on her. Beginning sometime in October. Actually had just gotten rate in all four line curry and my premiums had gone to tune in 87 month. The deductible of 2700. Dollars was still the same. The out of pocket maximum expenses of 3200. Was still the same. But my premiums had just gone up you know little -- and a couple weeks later I got another letter from -- first telling me that that policy. Did not qualify. Under the Affordable Care Act and that by next October at the time my renewal. That policy was going to be canceled I nearly fell off the change.

It's a real hardship right now my husband is 67 years old I'm 58. We are desperately trying to save for retirement. As I said we are both. Self employed so we don't have a pension from some company and 5000. Dollars more a year is not pocket change. You know what's really going to affect us and now what makes no difference that we tried to cut back on other expenses because it's all going to be absorbed. By the new health care policy. -- you know. If she had voted for Romney or even McCain is this terrible he was I would have some sympathy but. You know I'm reminded of Oscar -- expression it would it would take -- from a couple of mean she. She thought she was getting something for nothing she believed this guy. How -- you about three.
