Doors opening for Obamacare displaying some of what is about to be seen. Ted Cruz and his like sit in a corner with their “Bah Humbug” demeanor. As usual their tactic for governing is simply “Our Way Or The Highway” Shutdown, shutdown.. Callow , callow….
What a difference with an intelligent leadership. President Obama open a small preview of things to come.“I can tell you right now that in many states across the country, if you’re, say, a 27-year-old young woman, don’t have health insurance, you get on that exchange, you’re going to be able to purchase high-quality health insurance for less than the cost of your cellphone bill,” Mr. Obama said Tuesday.
For a benchmark plan — the second-lowest-cost “silver plan,” covering 70 percent of projected medical costs for a typical consumer — the average premium nationally will be $328 a month for individuals.
Yes, yes I know what about the 30% remaining. Keep in mind Medicare that many already enjoy. They could use it as a supplement as I use Medicare as a supplement to my VFW medical benefits.
This is for those approaching Medicare and cannot afford health insurance at all. Once you reach fifty and you lose a job good luck getting another one. Out to pasture to graze on your laurels will more likely be the case. Minim income if any and NO health insurance. That’s where the Previous republican behemoth monopolized Health Insurance Companies started to hit these individuals with huge increases in premiums and less coverage, with higher co pays. Its going to take a few years to fix that corruptive hole that republicans created with their dysfunctional Health Care Insurance plans.
For a family of “FOUR” with an annual income of $50,000, the administration said, monthly premiums for the second-cheapest plan will vary widely, averaging $600 in Arizona,$800 in Georgia,$961 in Indiana,$1,069 in Mississippi,$859 in New Hampshire,$943 in New Jersey and $656 in Utah.
OF course this is our first steps unto the road of someday Universal Care as the rest of our civilized world already enjoys at far less cost than our start up cost. There will be higher cost for those states that obstructs and or require the Federal to actively set up the program for them. Catering service charges, that the taxpayers of those states will be paying, for voting in a dysfunctional leadership. 2014 coming. Rectify that problem or additional obstructions will cost more to remove charged to the taxpayers insurance plan.

When you refer to 'poor' health coverage you mean that a 60 year old man is required to carry maternity insurance or have a policy that pays for contraceptives,drug and alcohol programs,and dozens of additional mandates that he can never use of never needs? How does that make a health insurance policy inferior?

Every single member of Congress that voted for ObamaKare should be voted out of office during their next election. Already, eighty of them are no longer in office.

So Po Socialist Boy who made Po decisions in life. Let me get this straight. It's good that government makes sure everyone has a Mercedes Benz for health insurance and you think it's the liberals right to enforce that, regardless of if they are happy with their Chevy?

You actually think 27 year olds should be paying for your Mercedes, because you are a scum sucking zero. Sorry to hit you with the truth. Azzwhoola.
