Roughly half of uninsured Floridians should be able to buy health insurance coverage for about $100 a month when they start signing up for Obamacare next month, a new federal report says.
There are an estimated 3.5 million uninsured Floridians, and most of them will be required to buy coverage through the federal health-insurance marketplace created by the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare. About 3.2 million of them are eligible for income-based federal subsidies to help them buy policies.
Failure to purchase insurance will result in a first-year tax of $95, which will go up in later years. The marketplace opens Oct. 1, and people must enroll in a health insurance plan by Dec. 15 to be eligible for coverage by the Jan. 1 deadline.
The HHS report projects that in the 26 states (including Florida) that do not plan to expand their Medicaid programs, approximately 35 percent of the currently uninsured residents should be able to buy a Silver plan for $100 or less a month, and another 18 percent would be able to get a Bronze plan for that amount.
"About 3.2 million of them are eligible for income-based federal subsidies to help them buy policies."

How much are these subsidies costing the taxpayer?

Carol said: "The latest CBO report said Obamacare will bankrupt the country. "
This is a blatant lie.
My God, Carol. Can you ever quit lying??
We're on the verge of bankruptcy now - if we aren't bankrupt already and it's a secret to avoid panic.

How much higher do you think the deficit can go before we reach the point of no return? Seems to me we've already passed that point at $16 trillion.

Adding all the unknown costs of Obamacare is going to fix it?

<quoted text> Well I looked it up. There is roughly 55 million families that will be eligible for a $10,000 subsidy. Most of those will also be eligible to have their out of pocket premium paid for. That's around another $250. They will also be eligible to have their co-pays, deductibles, and coinsurance. Far as I'm concerned this will cost the US taxpayer about $900 million a year and I think that will be low. Anybody here think the taxes in this bill will raise that much in a year? Some of the taxes have already been set aside with more on the chopping block. It is just another wealth redistribution scam.
Did you mean $900 million or $900 billion?

$900 million is way, way too low...

Obamacare Will Increase Health Spending By $7,450 For A Typical Family of Four
Really? Do you ever read the article or just the headline? Claiming that the cost of Obamacare (estimated at $621 billion in your article) averages out to an increase in spending by $7,450 for a family of four is absolutely assine. How misguided can you get?

How your article says he arrived at the $7,450 figure:

"Most readers will find it easier to think about how this number translates to a typical American family—the very family candidate Obama promised would see $2,500 in annual savings as far as the eye could see. So I have taken the latest year-by-year projections,(estimated cost of Obamacare) divided by the projected U.S. population to determine the added amount per person and multiplied the result by 4."

Study: Half in Individual Market Will Qualify for ACA Subsidies in 2014
Wednesday, August 14, 2013
Nearly half of all U.S. residents who currently purchase their own health insurance will be eligible for federal subsidies to offset the cost of buying coverage through the Affordable Care Act's health insurance exchanges in 2014, according to a study released Wednesday by the Kaiser Family Foundation, Kaiser Health News' "Capsules" reports (Appleby, "Capsules," Kaiser Health News, 8/14).
Under the ACA, U.S. residents with annual incomes between 100% and 400% of the federal poverty level -- between $11,500 and $46,000 for an individual and $23,550 and $94,200 for a family of four -- are eligible for federal subsidies to help offset the cost of purchasing coverage on the exchanges (Alonso-Zaldivar, AP/Sacramento Bee, 8/14). Subsidies will not be available to those offered affordable and comprehensive coverage through their employers or those on government health programs, such as Medicaid ("Capsules," Kaiser Health News, 8/14).
Can you tell us what the deductibles will be for Obamacare?

Don't know why no one will answer this simple question?

Where's your source? I haven't seen anything from the CBO that says the ACA will "increase the debt".
Since the day it became law, the CBO has projected that the ACA's insurance coverage provisions would cost the federal government $759 billion during fiscal years 2014 through 2019.(Their newest projections indicate that those provisions will cost $710 billion over that same period.) However, the CBO has also said, "Taking the coverage provisions and other provisions together, the ACA will reduce deficits over the next 10 years and in the subsequent decade."

yes, we can blame Bush for the 3 disillusioned Americans who took part in that attack.
but but Clinton: When faced with anarchy, and sabotage of the mission by Moslesm who were killing UN peacekeepers, Clinton decided to hunt down the principal culprit, Mohammad Aidid. Yet Clinton committed insufficient armed forces to the operation. When Aidid fought back, killing 18 Americans and dozens of other UN soldiers, Clinton decided to cut and run - reaping dreadful consequences. We now know that Osama bin Laden's al-Qa'ida had trained and fought with Aidid's forces. Bin Laden, recalling the US retreat was convinced by Somali events that the US retreated under fire. Blame the muzzie Keith Ellison for supporting terrorism in his own state.

How many people in this country are even savvy or stay up-to-date with current events and statistics such as this?
The number of people who simply have no clue what to do or what to expect with Obamacare is staggering.
When is someone going to grab a bullhorn and lead the charge that a president CANNOT revise or change any law on a whim?
Under the Constitution that in itself is an impeachable offense. If impeachment would be too hard on the country, the Constitution clearly allows Congress to deny and rein in any spending that involves a president overreaching his power.
Doesn't Obama claim to be a Constitutional lawyer himself?
that's what they say.
