You seem to be very, very confused about the purpose of the exchanges.
They are intended for low-wage workers and people with pre-existing conditions who haven't been able to afford care. These people don't give a damn whether or not they can get care at UCLA or Cedars-Sinai. People who go to the exchanges do so knowing that the US government can't afford to subsidize care at top rated research hospitals and, they don't care. They are just happy to be able to get medical attention...anywhere.
If someone like you wants to access UCLA or Cedars-Sinai, a plan from the exchange is not for you. Period.
My experience after three days of preparation is that Obamacare is not ready for prime time and it is not affordable. My preparation included calls with my financial adviser, tax adviser, current provider and exploring Colorado’s health exchange website. I found:

1. The income number is adjusted gross income (no deductions).

2. My rates are higher — 250 to 350 percent higher. I was paying $550 per month for a family of three compared to bronze policy rates of $1,400 and $1,800 per month. This is not affordable for my family.

3. Subsidies will not make up the difference. Post-subsidy, I face a net 30 percent to 50 percent increase.

4. The sites are not ready. It took seven attempts to create a user ID. Some PPO policies were missing. And the subsidy calculator was unavailable.

John Maynard Keynes was characterized as a liberal, an atheist and a statistician as well as a sodomite.

Keynes admitted that by "a continuous process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens. By this method, they not only confiscate, but confiscate arbitrarily: and while the process impoverishes many, it actually enriches some. The process engages all of the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner that not one man in a million can diagnose."

When Larry Summers, head of President Obama's National Economic Council and former president of Harvard University, was asked by Charlie Rose "what idea, what person has most influenced your thinking on how to deal with this financial mess?" without hesitation answered "Keynes."

Tea party calling someone else ignorant, then in the next breath call yourself a patriot. That is the clown act right there. It's bad enough for Republicans to have sent the world broke in 2008 now the Tea party want to do it again. So it would be safe to say your fan club is shrinking all the time, even the Chinese are becoming antzy about Tea Party stupidity.

Keynesian economics ended the depression and was the foundation of our economics for the entire post WWII economic boom.

It was only after Raygun's voodoo/supply side economics that The middle class began to shrink and debt and deficits exploded.

Only an idiot would think that wealth will trickle down to the middle class when you cut taxes on the rich. You seem to enjoy having the rich piss on you and tell you its raining.

What % of these taxes are on the middle class, Bradley.
You do the math.
The poor won't pay a single dime,and the wealthy that Oblamer loves to hate for the media will pass it on in the form of higher costs and limited goods and services.

Since Oblamer took office 96% of the new wealth have gone to the top 1% of wage earners,and,last year 77% of all the new jobs created were part time.

This is a three-ring political circus.
Actually carol individual veterans groups are being given access to the WWII Memorial. The park service made provisions Wednesday to allow veterans groups into the memorial during the government shutdown. Spokeswoman Carol Johnson said the Honor Flight Network, which brings World War II veterans to Washington, is being granted access to conduct First Amendment activities at the memorial.

Your socialist punk Obama knew he had to do that numbnuts. But everyone else is being kept out such as the children of the veterans, etc. Meanwhile, they opened up the National Mall so Nancy Pelosi & a bunch of "Illegal" Aliens could have a rally.

You forgot to mention that, Zombie Reichtard.

Wow Bradley. You're an idiot.

What wealthy people do you buy products from? I buy stuff made by companies.

I get it, Bradley. You think if the CEO of Lowes pays a higher rate on his personal income tax that he will raise lumber prices.

I have news, Bradley, the wealthy has been grabbing the majority of growth in this country for decades. Its called redistribution of wealth.

This is what Obama was talking about. Changing that so the middle class gets a bigger slice.. And you f*cking morons ran screaming thru the streets " OMG OMG Obama is Stealing our money & giving it to others"

You just listed a plethora of tax increases, most on the middle class seeing how nearly half of the population pays no income tax.
BTW, your number one states "...cost the Federal government now picks up...".
The government "picks up" nothing. We, the taxpayers do.

Obama is not only arming Al Qaeda through two Al Qaeda terrorist training bases in Libya, the Armed Forces of the United States are actually operating an Al Qaeda terrorist training base in Jordan.

... another Marxist dupe.

It is obvious (to anyone who actually gets off their lazy indoctrinated ass and looks) that wealth in more educated countries is more evenly distributed than in less educated countries.
The real world fact that will never, ever change is, wealth has never been, is not now, and never will be evenly distributed. There is no case in the history of civilization where wealth was evenly distributed. It is a ludicrous pipe dream.
If you want wealth to be more evenly distributed, fix the education system here.
Our education system has been on a 40+ year decline without a single year of improvement. Today, we have the most expensive education system in the world that generates the most ignorant workforce in the industrialized world.
An idiot can tell you that will cause the wealth to increasingly migrate to a smaller percentage of the population.

What these so-called "poor" communities need is a community organizer that can lead them to individually make themselves more educated and capable, and escape the institutionalized poverty the Democrats need them to be in.
Offhand, I can't think of anyone like that. Can you?

Face it, dumbass. You dont' even know what a "subsidy" is. This discussion was just another example where you discovered how ignorant and indoctrinated you are.

There are no subsidies paid to oil companies. Subsidies to oil companies is an urban legend. They don't exist. There is no such thing as a subsidy to any oil company in the United States.

"Marshals: Gunman fires at US courthouse in W.Va.

WHEELING, W.Va.(AP)- The U.S. Marshals Service says a man with an assault-type rifle fired 15 to 20 shots at the federal courthouse in Wheeling. W.Va., before security officers returned fire, critically wounding the man.
Chief deputy Mike Claxton of the Marshals Service in northern West Virginia says one officer was hurt by shattered glass inside the courthouse during Wednesday's shooting but no other injuries were reported.
Claxton says the gunman was in a parking lot across from the courthouse downtown. He says officials are attempting to determine a motive."
An ex-cop. Don't remember if retired or not. Wheeling is up there between Ohio and the other Pennsylvania.

Europe devolving into war and using the manufacturing capability of the United States ended the Depression, you ignorant moron.

The rest of the world recovered from the economic collapse in the early 30s. It was only the United States in the world that stayed mired in an economic stagnation and depression. If Europe had not decided to start a collosal war, the United States would have remained mired in the Depression untill FDR died and the Democrats were thrown out of power.

Definition of 'Subsidy'
A benefit given by the government to groups or individuals usually in the form of a cash payment or tax reduction. The subsidy is usually given to remove some type of burden and is often considered to be in the interest of the public.
You & dumbwaiter are dumber than sh*t.
You want to how GD dumb you two are?
You run around b*tching about subsidies to help people buy health insurance. Does the government give these people cash?
Yes it is. Although the money is not going directly to them they are recieving the benefit of that money. If they understate their income to get a bigger subsidy they, not the insurance company, will have to repay the money. Only a loony libtard thinks allowing people to keep their own money is giving them money. Friggin' libtards are SO stupid!!!!
