This Act puts individuals, families and small business owners in control of their health care. It reduces premium costs for millions of working families and small businesses by providing hundreds of billions of dollars in tax relief – the largest middle class tax cut for health care in history. It also reduces what families will have to pay for health care by capping out-of-pocket expenses and requiring preventive care to be fully covered without any out-of-pocket expense. For Americans with insurance coverage who like what they have, they can keep it. Nothing in this act or anywhere in the bill forces anyone to change the insurance they have, period.

Americans without insurance coverage will be able to choose the insurance coverage that works best for them in a new open, competitive insurance market – the same insurance market that every member of Congress will be required to use for their insurance. The insurance exchange will pool buying power and give Americans new affordable choices of private insurance plans that have to compete for their business based on cost and quality. Small business owners will not only be able to choose insurance coverage through this exchange, but will receive a new tax credit to help offset the cost of covering their employees.

It keeps insurance companies honest by setting clear rules that rein in the worst insurance industry abuses. And it bans insurance companies from denying insurance coverage because of a person’s pre-existing medical conditions while giving consumers new power to appeal insurance company decisions that deny doctor ordered treatments covered by insurance.

The Secretary has the authority to implement many of these new provisions to help families and small business owners have the information they need to make the choices that work best for them.

This is the first four paragraphs of the Affordable Care Act. Anybody who reads this and doesn't realize what boondoggle this will become is nuts. There is no way the federal government can raise enough money to pay for it. Absolutely no way.

For non-emergency cases, show them to a chair and let them wait until there are zero valid paying customers to be treated.

You didn't tell me your opinion.
A fetus' heartbeat begins spontaneously in the very early stages of development - a medical and scientific fact. Do you think the beating of a human heart indicates life? Or not?
Galt has already stated his position that abortion should not be legal when the fetus is viable outside the womb, i.e."life".

Your clown Obana has his NSA snooping on Americans who do nothing wrong, has his IRS harassing citizens and denying them their rights, yet as Commander & Chief, his politically correct puppets allowed the Fort Hood Shooter access and now this:

The ex-Navy reservist who gunned down 12 at Washington Navy Yard had his federal security clearance renewed in July, despite having a record of violent behavior involving guns and a history of mental illness.

You are a bunch of clowns. Obama lies, people die.

I believe it is the law. Emergency rooms can not deny care to anyone. That is my understanding anyway.

More and more policies have emergency room co-pays and are increasing the amount every year, the reason being that emergency room costs are so high that insurers try to discourage their use for minor problems.

DaBammy, Kerry, US intel with an assist from France ran a game on Putin and the Assad brothers. Not sure it's worthy of a Nobel but you can bet that Putin got taken to school.
You are a fool.

Assad has a green light to exterminate the rebels, with Russian assistance, and will flood the media with photos of captured American weapons furnished to Al Qaeda.

But why pay $50 when you can go to the ER for free? That $50 might be needed to get your tongue pierced, your nails done, or get your up-graded cell phone.
ER copays under Covered California are as follows:

Exactly. Just like when more anger was shown by Obama at older Americans in the Tea Party than at Iran going nuclear.

<quoted text>again I ask? when does one ever pay their debt to society. Certainly you do not think that a person who committed a crime at 18 and leads a life contributing to society should still be considered a felon at age 40? I ask this question: How does one ever pay their debt to society? seems in liberal states like Illinois--it is never.
Their debt should be paid upon completion of their sentence. A person should be able to leave jail or prison a free person; free to get a job, a loan, an apartment.
And, vote.

Please stop, Galt. You're only confusing Lily more than she already is. When she starts taking your side, it's time to reassess the discussion.
I said the exact same thing you just did. The Democrats bring up the issue of abortion (implying to use against republican candidates) every election cycle. To a pro-lifer like myself, it's a way to use the killing life as a way to win.
Maybe you just didn't understand the implication.
Galt fully understands that many conservative women don't want fundamentalist preachers telling them what to do with their bodies.

Particularly the kind who speak in tongues and handle snakes.

No sicker that people like you who condone behavior that leads to mass abortions and makes such abortions free and convenient at taxpayer expense.
Carol is one extreme and you are the other.
It is obvious which of the posters here believe that irresponsibility should have no consequences. And that the government should control the outcome at the expense of the taxpayer.

Hold on there Galt; you were doing okay until you started going off into crazy land. No one promotes mass abortions, no one has ever said that he is pro abortion. People say they are pro choice. In a perfect world, all people would prevent pregnancy in the first place; but, humans aren't perfect.
Condoning what behavior? Sex? You want the government to decide what and where and how often people have sex? That's personal.
If a woman has a child and the child is placed in fostercare; the taxpayers pay for that child until he is 18. Isn't it better to provide the small cost of an abortion; to those women who want to terminate for whatever reason? Not everyone is made to be a parent; hence the half million kids in fostercare.

It doesn't matter how much it costs when you can't be denied even when you have no intention of paying.
