Barack Obama, our next President

Yes, but their premiums will be "lower by as much as 25% by limiting the number of doctors and hospitals in the network." It will all work out.
unproven on rates, but if so because the exchange deletes all the best doctors and hospitals...so, Bangladesh medicine at premium prices...

Uh...excuse me for having to tell you what everyone already knows. Democrats were in control of Congress two years prior to Obama being elected and two years after Obama was elected.
They had two years after the 2008 election to single-handedly turn the economy around. They had control of both Congress and the Executive Branch.
But a good crisis couldn't go to waste, remember? So we got Obamacare instead.
Pick your avalanches carefully. You picked the wrong one.
LMAO. News Flash!!! It takes 60 members of the Senate to break a filibuster. In 2007 & 2008, the Democrats only had 49 seats plus two independents. Do you know how many times the Republicans snarled the legislative process during that time by filibustering a bill? 112 times!(The most the filibuster has been used when Democrats were in the minority was 58 times in the 106th Congress of 1999-2000.) So, don't give me that BULL about democrats being in control. It's a LIE.

Republicans announced that they would obstruct every single thing President Obama wanted to accomplish and they did. It's disgusting and shameful.

Former Senate Minority Whip Trent in 2007,“The strategy of being obstructionist can work or fail… So far it’s working for us.”

Republicans block bills then blame Obama and the Democrats for not getting things passed. Geez, you really need to stop listening to FOX and Breitbart.

So lower premiums if preferable over quality doctors.
BTW, I googled your quote, here are the results
No results found for "lower by as much as 25% by limiting the number of doctors and hospitals in the network."

<quoted text>Correct but it's the chief or main reason. C'mon we're talking about a fluctuation of 3% and it's likely to get worse.
The only reason we're discussing labor force rates is because it's popular on FOX and on conservative sites which conceal the actual data.
Granted that it's not good news__but it was predicted long ago and has zero to do with the current administration policies__or the previous one for that matter.
More baby boomers are retiring early than would have otherwise because of layoffs and inability to find new jobs. Many in their late 50s or early 60s who had planned to work until age 65 or longer find themselves out of work and unemployable. And many of them have good educations.

The Obama Depression destroyed their lives.

Clueless Fools

A precedent was established by the SCOTUS, one that says the government can force us to purchase a product. In law, precedent is everything. Why? Because it then becomes PRACTICE.

Why, after the democrats have gone this far, stop at health insurance? Does anyone think the government, no matter which side is in power, will stop with health insurance? Ask yourselves this - has the gov't ever once, having expanded its authority, not expanded upon that authority?

So, what's next, life insurance? Solar panels for your home? Electric cars?

You folks who wanted the Supreme Court to side with Obama have no idea as to the can of worms you've opened and dumped down an already slippery slope.

Thanks a lot, clueless fools.

There's NO GUARANTEE that doctors and hospitals won't be stiffed for the bill the a loser does pay. Lower premiums mean HIGHER DEDUCTIBLES for all.

A liberal who doesn't want to pay $2,000 deductible (or doesn't have it) isn't going to pay the bill when their health INSURANCE doesn't pay. So much for a bad credit risk...

Bureaucrats run the government, not politicians.
Appointed and anointed by the elected bureaucrats.

Small town mayors earning $7K hand out $100K jobs to city managers/economic development managers/ the popo and fire chiefs__shall we go on???

So__I had a piece of land once that the city wanted to buy for a good deal of money, make that a great deal of money, so they bought it from me and just after closing but before the check was cut it was learned that the grant money had never even been applied for and the city couldn't complete the transaction.

I retained the land along with a handsome legal settlement.

Ya gotta love city hall__and the higher the elected, appointed and anointed go the more distracted they get__until they're totally worthless.

The United States and Israel are not one Nation--but we share the same G-d given values as two separate countries. You liberals hate G-d...why are you propagating your love for G-d now?
Tick tock, tick tock. Just because you are an American born citizen who isn't required to take an oath of allegiance to the United States does not mean you shouldn't. Let's hear it.....where does your allegiance lie...with the United States or Israel? It's a pretty straight forward, simple question.

I'll make it even easier: You can answer with a Yes or no. Do you pledge your allegiance SOLELY to the United States of America?
