i'll find right wing trolls at Huffpost and Kos, though over at Heritage they call them conservatives.

though maybe this is what you're talking about?

Obamacare will double my monthly premium (according to Kaiser)

comments...

The reason is, your policy did not have the minimum provisions required in Obamacare. Therefore, that particular policy will no longer exist under the new law.

You can't blame Obamacare because you selected substandard insurance. And remember, those who have no insurance at all will be getting a 100% premium increase. However, the vast majority of them are grateful they can finally get insurance.

You likely qualify for subsidies, if you're too stubborn to take them, that's on you.

........

So basically Kaiser raped you on renewal and tried to blame it on ACA. If this isn't proof that this whole industry needs reform nothing else is.

.........

I imagine our rates may see an increase due to Obamacare, but guess what...I'll pay it or I'll shop around for something competitive.

If it means coverage for all then I'll bite the bullet in the immediate future and wait for things to even out.

The insurance companies are trying to defend their turf but once this is in place I expect the market to get a lot busier.

.......

I am so tired of the ACA getting blamed for greedy insurance companies. wtf people? Go yell at your stupid insurance company that raises their rates whenever they please, and now have a perfect scapegoat for their bad behavior. And while you're at it go yell at the greedy corporations that don't want to pay for your healthcare, or give you a living wage, that are likewise using the ACA and the President as their excuse for being greedy aholes. Healthcare reform will take some time to get right. It seems a small miracle to me that we have made it this far. And please, start directing all that angst at the people and companies that deserve it.

"China's largest private-owned conglomerate which invests in commodities, properties and pharmaceuticals also known as "Shanghai's Hutchison Whampoa", announced in a statement filed just as quietly with the Hong Kong stock exchange, that it had purchased JPM's iconic former headquarters, the tower built by none other than David Rockefeller, at 1 Chase Manhattan Plaza for a measly $725 million."

Fact is, if he didn't bailout the auto industry, the costs would've been far more than $16.4B! More to the tune of $28.6 billion had all those workers lost their jobs &, therefore income tax contribution, UE benefits, asking with other gov't services to ease the blow. So one might say, we profited $12.2B!

Oh good.

Princess Hillary is declaring her intention to run for president in 2016.

The same woman that allowed her husband to humiliate her for decades, screwing around with any female that he could corner.

The same woman that lied about a "vast right-wing conspiracy" when he was being sued for sexual harassment in the workplace.

The same woman that wouldn't divorce him after he confessed to having his genitalia sucked and ejaculating in the face of a 20-year-old employee.

The same woman that DID NOTHING while the consulate in Benghazi begged for help for 8 hours, resulting in the death of 4 Americans.

That's the best the Socialist/Democrats can do for a presidential candidate.

Then again, ANYTHING would be better than Lord Obammy, right?

Ted Cruz’s claims on Obamacare focus on losers, not winners

First of all, the United States is a big country — nearly 315 million people, in fact. So when a politician tosses out the claim that “millions of Americans” are hurting, it’s time to take out a calculator. Even 10 million would be a relatively small percentage.

The Congressional Budget Office has calculated that by 2018, after the law is fully implemented, 7 million people will be dropped from their employer health plans and 5 million people will shift out of private plans. Put in terms of percentages, that means it would affect about 4 percent of people on employer health plans and 19 percent on people on private plans.

Meanwhile, the number of people without insurance will decrease by 25 million people, a cut of more than 45 percent. In other words, significantly more people will be helped by the law than those who face changes in health coverage. Moreover, the vast majority of people who now get their insurance from their employers likely will see little change.

Those are crucial details that Cruz somehow ignores when he speaks of the millions of victims. Indeed, Oregon announced this week that the state’s uninsured rate has already been cut by 10 percent since Oct. 1, when people were able to begin signing up for Obamacare.

.....In the specific example cited by Cruz of UPS —“15,000 UPS employees got a notification in the mail that they were losing spousal coverage”— he left out a crucial detail: The company’s policy change affects spouses who would qualify for health coverage at their own company — affecting approximately one in five workers, according to a company memo. Spouses who don’t have coverage or are not employed would still continue on the company plan.

The company memo makes clear this action is being taken because of the health-care law, but UPS is not leaving spouses without health coverage or forcing them to go to the Obamacare exchanges. Cruz does not quite say that, but he certainly leaves that impression when he says workers are “losing the health insurance that they wanted and they liked.”

The full impact of the health-care law will not be known for years, and there are bound to be winners and losers in any major change in social policy. By focusing just on the losers, in such stark terms, Cruz undercuts his ability to highlight what he considers the flaws in Obamacare.

Taken together, are these claims worth Two or Three Pinocchios? It’s a fine line, and there are days when we wish we awarded ½ Pinocchios. On balance, Cruz’s language tips ever so slightly in the direction of Two Pinocchios. It may well be that “millions” have faced higher premiums or fewer hours at work, giving his claims a measure of credibility. But he does not allow at all for the possibility that millions of people are benefiting from the law — and that quite likely the number of winners from the law is larger than the losers. That does a disservice to his listeners.
