Oh, how I wish I had a source better than Breitbart on this but the story seems ligit.
How desperate is the Obama regime to ressurect the ACA that we are now seeing celebrities saying stuff like this:

"Obamacare already saved thousands, possibly millions, of lives..."

Have I just fallen into another dimension?
Is this Bizarro world?
What is going on?
Has Hollywierd just sn0rted that one line too many?

This is just so unbelievable but not as unbelievable as the notion that somewhere out there...right now...maybe even in your own home...there's someone who actually believes it.
This is just so surreal and it keeps gets stranger with each passing day.

Has Russell bumped his head?
What world exactly is Simmons talking about with all this saving going on in it?
Did I miss something?
I MUST have dozed off for a moment but millions?
That many people haven't even successfully signed up yet and even if millions somehow magically DID sign up...they all had near death experiences all just after signing up for the ACA?
I never thought I'd say this, but screw his record label.
If I have any music from this guys company on my drive, I'm blasting it to the recycling bin.
He's too stupid to have my money.
You can decide for yourself.

All you would have to do is look above Mr. Simmons and you would see Obama manipulating the strings...either that or Obamas hand is up Russell's ass making the puppet speak.

Where is the data on this?

If Simmons knows where to find the data, it should be available to us all, right?

Another well to do Hollywood type telling us regular folks how much we have been blessed with Obamacare. It makes me just a little queasy.

Well Obama did say the other day they were going to "remarket and rebrand"...

As problems pile up, President Obama said Tuesday his signature health-care reform law needs a full-blown rebranding effort.

“I am confident that the model we’ve built, which works off the existing private insurance system, is one that will succeed. We’re going to have to, A., fix the website so everybody feels confident about that. We’re obviously going to have to remarket and rebrand and that will be challenging in this political environment,” the president told leading CEOs at a gathering hosted by the Wall Street Journal in Washington.


and I wonder how many people has it killed so far ?

Just when ya' think the ca-ca couldn't get any deeper...

I hope it's NOT true that any fool said that, 'cause that is embarrassing as heck.

Old "Def Comedy Jam" Russell Simmons is telling jokes?

From the article (about the republicans):

Whatever President Obama stands for, they stand for the opposite.

Normally I'd never support the mainstream republicans anymore than I'd support the democrats but in this case, if Simmons is correct I'd have to say:
    "Go Republicans!"

Maybe his "Rush Card" venture didn't net enough so he has to look into other options to keep his fortune at peak level.

Actually, you don't have to take Brietbart's word for it. Simmons posted it on the Huffington Post.


Yes, we initially wanted single payer, and we had to compromise back in 2009 for the Affordable Care Act. But, it is a damn good piece of legislation that has already saved hundreds of thousands, if not millions of lives. So, let us not give up now.

So much for me ever giving a crap about what Russel Simmons has to say about anything political.

thats right, Millions have been saved, Millions, on a plan that has not even got off the ground as of yet, still sitting there burping smoke and not firing the engines. This is the standard moron mentality of the average lib. What gets me is the stupid sheep that hear this BS and say "look how just wonderful this ACA is, just wonderful" Makes me sick........

Thank you for that timely post sir/ma'am.
Outside of this, I don't use social media at all so I'd never have found that except by accident.
As for Russell?
Sounds like it's time for someone to check into Betty Ford...

From the depths of my soul I believe that every single human being deserves the right to healthcare and medical treatment when necessary....I truly do.

But, this whole ACA/Obamacare is becoming and manifesting into a complete joke!

Not only b/c it's not even allowing people to sign up... the costs are becoming out of reach for those that really need the help....

Now.... It is actually becoming a TRUE JOKE!

By actual comedians!

What a joke for Russell Simmons to spew false data....complete and utterly False info! How has O Care saved any lives...Really?????

All of my love to All

Having read most of the comments on this post I am encouraged that the rational thinkers among us can see through the the fog coming off this steaming pile of crap euphemistically called the Affordable Care Act. Now do yourself and this country proud at the polls and show these cynical socialists how you feel about having your health care and finances destroyed. Just remember in November 2014 how you have been deceived and made fools of by the clowns in this administration.

Don't mean to derail but...

Why on Earth is a public servant using the term 'rebrand' and/or 'remarket' when discussing a law???

Does this show the administration is a) getting direction from Madison Avenue rather than James Madison or b) actually aware of the thin ice it is on with the American public?

I guess I just don't mean the administration but the whole DC crew in general. If the law was just and served the public well, there would be no need to sell it. Instead it is snake oil and the salesmen are warming up the engines in case they need to get out of town quick.

Healthcare saves lives.

Obamacare is just a law that redistributes wealth, causes job loss, and creates uninsured among the middle class.

If Obama was a white man, then Russel Simmons would be denouncing Obamacare as a tool of the white man to keep the black man down.

Obama is black so he automatically gets support from the black community regardless of what he does in most cases.

I once had a black fellas tell me that Deep Blue Sea was a good movie. After i had watched it however, I had to wonder if he really thought it was a good movie or if he just liked it because Samuel jackson and LL cool J starred in it. Same premise here with Simmons and Obummer.

I usually stay out of the Obamacare debates but seriously, this has me laughing and crying at the same time. I'm baffled by this statement, as even a dumbass like myself who hasn't even read the bill knows this is steaming cat poo.

Just because my dog eats out of the cat box doesn't mean it tastes good, Russ, no matter what you say.
