Agree!!
Obama thinks that the function of Congress is to do the King's bidding, to rubber-stamp whatever the girl wants.

Research has proven over and over again that there are only about 2% of recipients who abuse the system. That is a pittance. Heck, "4 million dollars over ten years" is laughable. One F-35 fighter jet costs $769 million. Reslugs should look to the military if they want to cut costs instead of trying to blame everything on the less fortunate.
Research has proven what?
How about a link liar? You just spew these lies out and everyone is supposed to believe it, what just because you say so?

Will Reid/President shutdown the Government?
The question is really, "Will Boehner and GOP lawmakers shutdown the Government?"

The ridiculousness of their recent budget bill certainly seems to indicate that they are headed in that direction. The Republican sequester will remain in place and the Republicans will lose in their attempt to undercut the Affordable Care Act.

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.
However, the Affordable Care Act does have an interest in the services provided and the cost thereof. Refreshing for a change.

This is like Russian Roulette will Reid/Obama shut down the Government?

In other words, deductibles and copays apply to everything else, including all real reasons anybody would visit a doctor.
Yes, other co-pays will still be in effect like they always have been. Even now, Medicaid recipients have co-pays. Difference is...people will be more inclined to see a doctor for preventative care rather than wait for an emergency. Early detection is the key to good health.

However, IMO, the most important provision of the Affordable Care Act is that, "starting in January, insurance companies will no longer be able to deny individuals coverage based on pre-existing conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure. What’s more, people with pre-existing conditions can’t be charged more based on their health status or issued a policy that excludes coverage for their particular condition, practices that remain common today." If it hadn't been for the stonewalling reslugs, this provision would have been implemented years ago. Reslugs should be ashamed of their party who cares more about warmongering than the welfare of our citizens.

Only Obama can shut down the government...his choice how to spend the money appropriated by Congress.

Unfortunately, this lame argument doesn't support the majority of Americans are against this version of health care reform. Sorry to have to be the one to tell you.
"Forty-four percent of respondents call the health-care law a bad idea while 31 percent believe it's a good idea -- virtually unchanged from July's NBC/WSJ survey.
"By a 45 percent to 23 percent margin, Americans say it will have a negative impact on the country's health-care system rather than a positive one."

But as even you must know by now, the people no longer matter. It's about Obama and the Democrats' power over us.

Conservatives are the source of America's economic freedom and opportunity.
Moochers like you, not so much.
Conservatives led us down a rabbit hole and it took a liberal to make things right again. Ask anyone if they are better off today than they were under the Bush administration and you will hear a resounding "YES". After years of insecurity brought by the Bush policies, people are actually feeling secure enough to begin investing in home ownership once again. It's great to watch the reslugs squirm as economic freedoms and opportunities rebound under the Obama presidency.

There is absolutely no proof of that.
Just curious why you people keep saying "preventative" instead of the correct "preventive"?
Of course there is proof.

Studies have proven that preventive care lowers hospitalization admissions as much as 72 percent and in one study published in the December issue of The Journal of Managed Care, hospital admissions dropped by 79 percent for medicare patients.

In one wellness plan (MDVIP), "the savings on hospital costs over one year amounted to more than $300 million and the longer the patients were MDVIP-practice members, the greater the reduction in hospitalizations."

It only takes common sense to realize that when doctors focus on disease prevention and wellness, they can "identify thousands of at-risk or higher-risk patients, preventing complications and even disease."
