    Kentuckians are not as ignorant as you may think. We want Obamacare no more than anywhere else. Shut Obamacare down.

    @ErnestPayne the evidence is that people were willing to listen to a three sentence sales pitch and accept free stuff based on that sales pitch. Just like when obamacare first hit the legislature, once people find out what is in it, it will change their minds...

    So... handing out FREE tote bags means Kentuckians like Obamacare but only under a different name... please. People like free stuff, not Obamacare.. nice try though.. trying to make the population of an entire state seem ignorant.

    It is the "Judging a Book by the Cover", equivalent. Give a book a cover people don't like and they won't buy the book. Give it a new cover that is more psychologically appealing, though the contents are the same as the original book with the different cover, and people will buy it. It's called marketing.

    @songbird Thank you so much for explaining that expression to me... sarcasm... this is not at all with this is. This is the author misleading people dumb enough not to read between the lines.

    They're just going to 'rename' it and low info voters won't know the difference. That's the Obama admin., he has to go through the 'back door'( no pun ) to get anything approved.
    Typical Chicago politician, eh???>

    So, they're telling people "no no, this isn't Obamacare." and then giving them some "pick and choose" sales pitch...that's pretty chknsht. And it's a fkn lie.

    @Slowmo I agree, it's like the old 'snake oil salesmen'. I think it's funny that people think Kentuckians are so stupid and backwoods. My sister-in-law was
    born there, only because my in-laws were living there due to a job transfer...
    She is a college graduate, was second chair in the Chicago Symphony, married
    into an old money family. lives in a huge home w/ acres of woods & a huge pond,
    and is the epitome of class...and yep, born in Kentucky. They have beautiful 'blue'
    grass and horses, and some highly intelligent people, just like any other state.

    @mimi57 well..that just isn't possible. Lol. Everyone knows liberals have a monopoly on moral superiority...as plainly showcased by this bait and switch car salesman tactic. And, instead of calling out the method as sneaky, underhanded, and dishonest, they champion the people who are doing it and call the citizens stupid. Disgusting.

    @Slowmo Yes, and do not, I repeat, DO NOT question the motives behind any of
    these 'scams'.'We The People', are fast becoming 'We The Peons'. Now sit down
    and shut-up, and KNOW YOUR SOCIETAL POSITION!!!( joking, but true in reality)

    There must be a mistake. Abraham Lincoln was way to smart to come from a state with people so dense in the head that can't figure out that it's exactly the same thing as Obamacare. Just listen to the woman's sales pitch.

    "Duhhh h¿¿ Which way did he go? Where is my lit - tle bun - ny wabbit?"

    But good for them for taking it anyway.

    @Laradian When the average person has no idea what obamacare is other than some vague notion of the boogeyman coming to jump out of their closet and get them in the middle of the night what do you expect?

    @frigginhell So, activists flat out lie to people..tell them "no no, this isn't Obamacare" and then cherry pick what they tell them abt and you call the citizens stupid instead of calling the group, who's doing this bait and switch, pieces of sht? Says a lot. More of that liberal "moral superiority"...

    @Slowmo Good call, its the Liberals fault that residents of Kentucky aren't educating themselves enough to know the old "bait and switch" gag.
    Defending complete ignorance, wow, what will come next?

    @Slowmo A rose called by any other name still smells just as sweet.. You only oppose it because the black man in the white house proposed it. When Geo Bush (41) proposed it, ya'll bought it hook, line and sinker. Just sayin'

    Hahaha! So they listened to a three sentence speech, then accepted free stuff, and that means they un approve?
    With obamacare, they rolled out the fraudulent benefits, but as people learned of the negative effects it lost tv support...
    So now they are renaming it, rolling out the fake benefots again, and hoping people dont notice. What do they think they are proving?
  • #34
    !
    All they proved is people are willing to listen to someone speak three sentences for a free tote bag. The fact the liberals think this is so great and people just don't like Obama just shows how truly ignorant they are.
  • #57
    !
    @YouSickenMe the whole thing is dishonest as hell. Obamacare is such a disaster that people are immediately interested in anything that will replace it...
    So they rename obamacare, propose it as a substitution for obamacare, say 3 sentences about it, and naturally people are interested in learning more...
    Then they use that interest as "evidence" that people actually support obamacare, as if they conveyed the whole law in 3 sentences....
  • #102

    @YouSickenMe "All they proved..." was that they'll say "no no, it's not Obamacare" and then cherry pick what they tell people in order to sell it. In other words..lie their asses off. More of that liberal moral superiority.

    The law is good for the people but because of it's name they despised it. Man, our hearts are that cold.?

    Looks like it. Comes down to being forced on you even tho it may be a good thing. ie - seatbelt law. Some are more hype susceptible than others.

    @ErnestPayne Yeah but who wouldn't love the name "Bushcare"? OR how about if it was named after a certain NY congressman? "Weinercare". LOL
  • #43

    @ErnestPayne Idiotic response! Do you work for a living? Pay the costs of family healthcare? You know who will paying that 40% tax for subsidized healthcare? Working people. Seems Obamacare is unpopular here because Kentuckians are smart enough to have figured that out, along with 55 million illegal to legal immigrants this admin wants to take out of your check to pay for.

    Everyone loves Obamacare.... as long as you only talk about the benefits. Once you sit down and look beyond the gloss you see cost, government expansion, business opting out, unions opting out, cut hours, doctors closing shop, projected longer wait times, and people losing their current coverage. I could sell anything to anyone if only one side of the story was used.

    I wans me sum dat free gubment monies cuz da Obama tolds me Ise coulds havs it!

    Who doesn't love free stuff?
  • #99

    @DrNickels ...me, I don't believe in it. I've never had it, and never want it. There's even a saying about women who marry for 'money'.
    I did ( once )... " If you marry for money, you'll earn every cent of it".
    I did, and to believe ANYTHING is free, is stupid, I don't care where
    you live.

    I remember a physiology professor of mine always said "ain't no such thing as a free lunch" and it's true whether it be chemical reactions or government services.

    @DrNickels ...never was, never will be, and the cost of lives is worth so much more than any material thing. If we get into this, it will not be good. We can
    not afford it. We can't afford Obamacare either, the government can't do anything efficiently...it's too broad and bloated to do anything on an individual
    level. It will hurt far more than it will help.

    It's reminds me of my cat! If his dry food sits in the dish more that half a day, he won't eat it. But if I dump the bowl back in the big bag and then back into the bowl, he thinks it's fresh and eats it!
    Okay, Daniel Boon was from Kentucky; I can respect that!

    Lol, well he was from Virginia but opened up the Wilderness Trail. When Ky. got too crowded, he moved westward.

    Lol, My cat is the same way.

    If I want to package shit in a nice decorated container and market it as incredible tofu does it make it any more edible than if it were floating in a stool? I think not.

    So they give them 3 sentences to sum up what is it 1800+ pages of crap and that somehow means they like it. Theres to much negative, there was a chance for a good piece of legislation but that was blown by pushing it through without actually writing a good bill.
  • #44

    Yep, exactly what I expect from the Obama administration: more lies and misdirection.
    I wonder how much all the re-branding, advertising, and professionally-staged photos (like pictured in the article) cost tax payers.

    Our past makes us an easy target. Just like all Brits have bad teeth and all French smell funky. Water off a duck's back by now.

    @songbird been that way since he's been here, there's no starting about it, he only thinks he's above the comparison because he comes from the other end of the political spectrum.

    It just shows that they hate "Obamacare" because they hate the President and the fact he is black. If a white Republican had devised the law they would be 110% behind it!

    Of course we have a democrat admin in Kentucky, and democrats will never be straight up about anything. Gov. Understands people hate o'care, and since he is taking all the taxpayers money to set up the "exchanges", he was smart enough to call the program kynect! All you bashers out there who take delight in putting Ky people down, just keep it up, but do it from a distance as we like you up or out there, and we will stay here!

    I suppose that's why in nations that actually have socialized medicine, any politician who tries to abolish it will see their career end within days due to voter outrage.
