Ridicule is usually where you go when you can't win on the facts. This is not productive.
It does not influence people to examine their views. Bill Maher is the Rush Limbaugh of the left. Both suck.
This is about facts... or rather the denial of facts.
There comes a point where this denial of truth becomes so ludicrous that all one can do make fun of it and laugh... there is no more arguing of point's when one side completely ignores the facts and instead makes up their own ...which time and time again fact checkers prove wrong.
As I requested yesterday, let's see the facts. Lets see the % of "droves" that are actually signed up and paying for this.
Hells fuckie, I'll even accept those who don't qualify and have been pushed into Medicaid. With the stats yesterday, it's still at an abysmal 0.12% sign up rate. You disputed that yet never gave me your stats which justified you using the term "droves"
Let's have some real numbers with real sources my friend.
Are you still using those unreasonable calculations you posted yesterday? Did you miss my response?

Really Jay... try to be at least somewhat fair when doing the math.
I expect more from you then these GOP bubble heads.
...what I was basing my "droves" comment on is that I heard on CNN a comment made about just the other day 60,000 signing up. I was referring to the increased rate of sign ups not the total... This boom however was likely due to the deadline for those wanting insurance by jan 1st. I will keep digging but the new numbers from this month are still coming in.
