The GOP plan is not much different from the GOP-sponsored Welfare Reform Act signed by Bill Clinton which was very successful in eliminating waste and fraud in the system back then.
This plan only eliminates 4 million dollars yearly in waste and fraud over the next ten years.
The cuts will not affect SNAP recipients who need the assistance but only people who choose to abuse the system.
Hard-working middle-class Americans are paying for these people and stiffer work requirements for certain adults applying for SNAP funds eliminates the temptation for them to sit on their couch and expect the federal taxpayers to feed them.
Surely, even you don't like the idea of certain people just sitting on their couches and expecting you to feed them, do you?
Moronic but typical fox post.

"Some health economists peg the current cost of drug development at US$1.3 billion, others at US$1.7 billion."

So, your solution is less drug R & D.

Isn't it terrific that Obama has taken the steps necessary to see that the burden of increased care is transferred from the taxpayer to insurance companies? You should be applauding the Affordable Care Act. Taxpayers will no longer be picking up the tab for those hip replacements, pace makers and electric scooters.
"The Affordable Care Act has the potential to reduce insurance cost growth while improving financial protections. If efforts succeed in slowing annual premium growth by 1 percentage point, by 2020 employers and families together would save $2,161 annually for family coverage, compared with projected premiums at
historical rates of increase."
Something had to be done and it took President Obama to make it a reality. Naturally, premiums are going to continue to increase but, under the Affordable Care Act, we will not see the huge leaps that we have experienced in the past.
FACT: "Total premiums for family coverage increased 50 percent across states and employee annual share of premiums increased by 63 percent from 2003 to 2010. If premium trends continue at the rate prior to enactment of the Affordable Care Act, the average premium for family coverage will rise 72 percent by 2020, to nearly $24,000."
http://www.commonwealthfund.org/~/media/Files...
The taxpayers pick up the tab whether we have welfare deadbeats or ObamaKKKare. The only difference is that the bill will be much larger with ObamaKKKare.

Insurance companies are just middlemen, processing claims for a fee, and have no real interest in the services provided or the cost thereof. Many large corporations are self-insured.

Once again, under the Affordable Care Act, "no health plan can apply a deductible or any cost-sharing for certain preventive health services." That includes you.
In other words, deductibles and copays apply to everything else, including all real reasons anybody would visit a doctor.

You know you are a dumbass right,

Your buddy Galt claimed increases lately were due to Obamacare.

Perhaps you should direct all of your responses to Galt.

Unfortunately, Reslugs have been very successful in spreading lies about the Affordable Care Act and the majority of people are easily brainwashed and too ignorant to think for themselves. Their brains have been eroded by too many video games.
The recent creepy anti-Obamacare ad with Uncle Sam wearing a rubber glove as he performs a gynecological exam is even low for Reslugs. You should be ashamed.

The increase in preventative care will cut medical expenses in the long run.
There is absolutely no proof of that.

Just curious why you people keep saying "preventative" instead of the correct "preventive"?

What happens when people accustomed to "free" medical care are required to pay now that they have insurance?
Will welfare pay the deductibles and copays?
If you are on welfare you are likely covered by Medicaid & that will not change.

Galt is showing how uninformed he is.
