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.

Covered California has serious network problems...far too few doctors for the anticipated enrollment.

<quoted text> President Obama is forcing Insurance companies to have to compete and they are doing just that-- the Healthcare exchanges will be offering so many more options that all of us are going to be much better off . This October Americans are going to learn the truth about Obamacare...and the right knows it. Update http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/09/20/1240... via @dailykos
The ObamaKKKare exchanges are the insurance company Dollar Store plans.

Cheap crap at low cost.

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.
Unlike medical care, national defense is authorized by the US Constitution.

The following ObamaKKKare requirements all add to the premium cost:
coverage of pre-existing conditions
coverage of adult slacker children
free wellness checkups
removal of lifetime caps
free birth control
free abortions

Keeping adult children on your policy was never free. I have no copay now for check ups. There are no free abortions under the exchanges. With the Fluke tizzy fit you dipsticks had, insurance companies had offer to include contraception without copay at no extra cost - let me know if you figure out why.

The example given did not involve operation of a motor vehicle.

Given the severity of drunk driving laws, most attorneys advise refusing a blood test if you know you are over the limit, even if that means loss of your license.

You'd have to understand her(his?)personal history. Leospamdra's Father committed suicide by driving his truck purposely into a tree (in order to get away from him/her).

Understandable, right?
