Few people understand how restrictive the "exchanges" are. In at least some states, the major group insurers are not participating and most of the coverage is through HMOs, which many people regard as substandard medical care. So, if you are forced into the exchange, and if your hospital and/or doctor are not part of one of the participating groups, you will be forced to change doctors (or pay higher out-of-group charges).
Wow, you're right. Changing doctors IS the end of civilization as we know it.

Nostradamus had it wrong all along, whaddya know?

I dunno, my inbox fills up with these benefit notices all the time. My portion of my insurance is about 0.3% of my income so its not worth the time to try to figure it out. Just fckn with Whatever. I tell ya, I'm still happier with the overseas coverage I had when self-employed.

Tenzing thinks just because he doesn't mind changing doctors everyone else should have the same mindset. Obviously changing doctors is a big deal to a lot of americans otherwise obama would not have made the promise. As false as it was.

Nobody and no program is limiting their access to care, just whether they have to pay for it or you and I do.
Obamacare sucks but its got to be better than the way we were being squeezed before by Medicare/Medicaid and the uninsured.
If it isn't i'm sure the single-payer option will be revisited and maybe that's been the D's plan all along.
What I do know for a fact is that if they did the right thing and privatized health care the ones screeching the loudest would be the teabaggers:
"Keep your gubmint hands off my Medicare!!!"
Tenzing is ok with a health care law that sucks as long as its a liberal plan. Can understand there might be something better. You know how libertarians are all about mandates.

Having the largest carbon footprint on the planet is hardly outstanding leadership.

So why donít blacks vote Republican? The answer is simple. Black people are not crazy. Being not crazy, they understand a simple truth about conservatives: They have never stood with, or up for, black people. Never.

Forget modern controversies like mass incarceration. Social conservatives, then based largely in the Democratic Party of the early to mid 20th century, opposed the Voting Rights Act. They opposed the Civil Rights Act. They opposed school integration. They opposed the Montgomery Bus Boycott. They opposed a law to crack down on lynching.

These are the people for whom African Americans are now supposed to vote? To make the argument is to betray a stunning contempt for the intelligence ó and memory ó of black voters.

Medicare premiums (government plus supplemental) are much higher than most people think, far more than the average person pays toward his employer insurance plan. So, when people retire and go on Medicare, they usually experience a significant increase in cost.

There is no free lunch.

If you were still married and told your wife that she needed to change her ob/gyn, you might get a different response.

Same with many other specialists.

so as long as we continue to suffer with the likes of FOXbot carol and her comrades, the background noise/what the FOXbots would rather not hear will continue unabated.
Great metaphor, FOX filters reality for these lemmings. The good news for progressives is that FOX has created a cult of politically dysfunctional illiterates.
