Furthermore, if you buy decent insurance with good coverage as an individual then it is very likely you will save significant money on the exchanges.
All of this whining from the right is just plain stupid.
Ifall that "whining" is so "stupid" Duh A Vey-then why is (at least SOME of them anyway) APOLOGIZNG to the American public-for the NOT READY FOR PRIME TIME roll out of this current aca of frankenstienien debauchery-Againt working class America, rather then FOR it?

You'd better visit Times Square while it is safe and clean, because De Blasio can't wait for the squeegee men to terrorize motorists and the panhandlers to harrass the tourists. His reaction to the beating of a couple with a toddler in their car a few weeks ago by a mob of violent thug motorcyclists was the police should go out in the community and talk to motorcycle groups.

Like Obammy, he is culturally popular with zero substance, divisive and making promises that even Democrats admit aren't possible. He parades out his biracial afro headed teenagers as props so of course that makes him qualified to be Mayor of NYC.

New York's decline has already started with liberal judges handcuffing the police and the department will slide back to reacting to a crime scene instead of preventing one.

Moving vans will benefit most as they relocate rich libs who are likely to foolishly vote for the David Dinkins clone.

U.S. Departments of Health and Human Services, Labor, and Treasury Issue Regulation on “Grandfathered” Health Plans under the Affordable Care Act
Most of the 133 million Americans with employer-sponsored health insurance through large employers will maintain the coverage they have today. Additionally, large employer-based plans already offer most of the comprehensive benefits and consumer protections that the Affordable Care Act will provide to all Americans this year – such as preventing rescission of coverage.
The roughly 42 million people insured through small businesses will likely transition from their current plan to one with the new Affordable Care Act protections over the next few years. Small plans tend to make substantial changes to cost sharing, employer contributions, and health insurance issuers more frequently than large plans. To help small businesses afford employee coverage, the Affordable Care Act includes a tax credit for up to 35% of their premium contributions.
The 17 million people who are covered in the individual health insurance market, where switching of plans and substantial changes in coverage are common, will receive the new protections of the Affordable Care Act sooner rather than later. Roughly 40 percent to two-thirds of people in individual market policies normally change plans within a year. In the short run, individuals whose plan changes and is no longer grandfathered will gain access to free preventive services, protections against restricted annual limits, and patient protections such as improved access to emergency rooms.

Fox News clears up CBS News story about perils of Obamacare
After appearing on CBS News yesterday morning in a segment on her rising health-care costs under Obamacare, 56-year-old Florida resident Dianne Barrette received calls from producers at Fox News, the better to repeat her critical tale on TV’s No. 1 outlet for Obamacare opposition. Presumably the network was interested in how Barrette’s insurance premiums were set to go from around $50 to nearly $600, as she explained yesterday on CBS News.
The story, however, wasn’t as straightforward as the CBS News account suggested. As pointed out here and here, Barrette’s $50 insurance plan was shot through with holes, particularly with respect to hospitalization. The Obamacare-compliant plan that she was offered in its place must comply with a set of basic standards, including hospitalization.
Following all the ruckus, Fox News host Greta Van Susteren interviewed Barrette on last night’s edition of her program “On the Record.” The deficiencies of Barrette’s longtime plan got plenty of attention from Van Susteren:
VAN SUSTEREN: I must say though that your policy is like, you know, if you are walking across the street and someone runs a red light, you are in deep trouble under your existing policy.
BARRETTE: That is true.
Now there’s something: Fox News, clearing up the distorted and negative impressions left by the mainstream media on Obamacare.
Following her chat with Van Susteren, Barrette got word from a network producer that her appointment to appear this morning on Fox News was cancelled, she tells the Erik Wemple Blog.
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/erik-wemp...
that will teach you nutjobs not to use a MSM source.
let us all not forget...they are all selling something.

As it was in the days of Noah

When Jesus said,“As it was in the days of Noah,” what was He telling us? Clearly, He was revealing something about the time of His Second Coming. He was also describing how the people of the world would be at that time. However, we must not lose sight of His primary goal which is to prepare His Church.

Read these next passages and carefully observe the activities of the believers (Noah and Lot) in contrast with those of the unbelieving world (Jesus refers to the world as: people, they and them).

As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left. "Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come (Matthew 24:37-42).

The following is an excerpt from Genesis in which Noah’s activities are described.

Noah did everything just as God commanded him. The LORD then said to Noah, "Go into the ark, you and your whole family, because I have found you righteous in this generation.… Pairs of all creatures that have the breath of life in them came to Noah and entered the ark.… Then the LORD shut him in.… Every living thing on the face of the earth was wiped out; men and animals … Only Noah was left, and those with him in the ark. The waters flooded the earth for a hundred and fifty days (Genesis 6:22-7:23).

So it was in the days of Lot

For the Son of Man in his day will be like the lightning, which flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other. But first he must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation. "Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all. "It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all. "It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed. On that day no one who is on the roof of his house, with his goods inside, should go down to get them. Likewise, no one in the field should go back for anything. Remember Lot's wife! Whoever tries to keep his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it. I tell you, on that night two people will be in one bed; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding grain together; one will be taken and the other left" (Luke 17:24-35).

The unbelieving world did not know that judgment was coming and it surprised them. In contrast, Noah and Lot did know and they took action as directed by the Lord. Noah was prepared and entered the ark, so he and his family were protected. Lot left Sodom, and he and his daughters were protected.

Obama admin. knew millions could not keep their health insurance

Four sources deeply involved in the Affordable Care Act tell NBC NEWS that 50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a “cancellation” letter or the equivalent over the next year because their existing policies don’t meet the standards mandated by the new health care law.

One expert predicts that number could reach as high as 80 percent. And all say that many of those forced to buy pricier new policies will experience “sticker shock.”

President Obama repeatedly assured Americans that after the Affordable Care Act became law, people who liked their health insurance would be able to keep it. But millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare, say experts, and the Obama administration has known that for at least three years.

Name the liar anyone?

It's the culture...
