My vote is he is just a dumb mental case. He is too stupid for anyone to pay him. He is overjoyed because he personally will get the welfare case subsidy, but too stupid to understand everyone else is getting screwed to pay for his useless lard.
He may have a BIG surprise when he seeks Medical care after Jan 1st-as usual nothing the Obama admin promises is usually delivered.
Many who THINK they have insurance or getting Medicaid will have a surprise as this info is not getting transferred correctly.

Ezekiel Emanuel, former health adviser to Obama and one of the architects of ObamaCare, argues that the reason young people are not signing up in droves for coverage under the law is the administration has not promoted it.

You can lie all you want lowlife, bottom line is if the 27 year old needs to use the insurance it could cost $8000 which is likely a WHOPPING 25% of net income.
That is your socialist "affordable" insurance?
Baawwaahhhh!!!!
If I was 27 years would, I would pass on your o-Commie-Care.
Read the law!!! If you make 400% of the poverty level ($45,960 for a single person), the cost for the Silver plan can't exceed 9.5% of your income, or $4,368 a year. That is a FACT.

Here's a rundown of the percentages for each income level, with the calculations for a single person:

400% of FPL ($45,960)- pay no more than 9.5% of income (or $4,366).
250% of FPL ($28,725)- pay no more than 8.05% of income (or $2,312).
200% of FPL ($22,980)- pay no more than 6.3% of income (or $1,448).
150% of FPL ($17,235)- pay no more than 4% of income (or $689).
133% of FPL ($15,282)- pay no more than 2% of income (or $306). That's only if you don't qualify for Medicare in your state.

So where do we draw the line? Where does it stop? When do we start reining in the spending to prevent going through this horse and pony show every couple of months?
We start by eliminating the debt ceiling altogether. Congress doesn't pay any attention to it. Conservatives have never been concerned about debt accumulation...until now. At least that will end the "horse and pony show".

The modis operandi of Congress has been to spending more, tax less and sweep the consequences under the rug. In actuality, the debt ceiling should have been part of the legislative process from the beginning..not a separate issue dealt with after the fact. Force members of congress to address the issue of the debt ceiling every time they pass legislation will go a long way toward debt reduction.

The max tax someone can be forced to pay is 4% of their income if they decline insurance making it cheaper to pay the tax for many people.

It is Medicaid; not Medicare-idiot! Which anyone below 138% qualifies for so removed bottom bracket.

How dirt poor does IDIOT have to be to claim to spend only $51 a month?

Oh by the way, today is the last day to qualify for these for 2014. Good job with that website disaster-Obama admin. You guaranteed the government will save major bucks by not having to pay these and I guess it is so sorry; too bad with those you "lost".

really, show me one politician, conservative or liberal, who is willing to discuss raising the retirement age of social security just 2 years much less 5 to where it should be (70)
Fact is, by 2033, the number of older Americans will increase from 45.1 million today to 77.4 million while the number of workers for each Social Security beneficiary will decrease from 2.8 to 2.1. In 20 years, if nothing is done, benefits would have to be reduced to 25%. It's not an emergency but deficits have grown about 40% over the last decade. Now is the time to act.

You don't have to raise the retirement age. Already, 1 out of 8 people do not live to collect their benefits. It might be better to just gradually increase the Social Security payroll tax over the next fifty or so.

I went into the actual Connecticut Obamacare website. That is what the premium and out of pocket is. You can get a lower out of pocket, but the premiums go substantially.

Go see for yourself at https://www.accesshealthct.com/AHCT/LandingPa...

$8000 is not affordable, no way you spin it for a 27 year old making 40k per year. It is about 25% of net income.

It is not cheap like you mental cases keep lying about.

The idiot says $51, maybe for a welfare case but not for others, which is why kids are not signing up.

There are those who will go without insurance because they have no choice. The rules of the Affordable Care Act waived the penalty for those who find themselves in that boat (Texas poor comes to mind). Of course, there are always those who will opt to decline insurance because they are just plain stupid. No accounting for ignorance.

That is why there is so many charities making up the difference for what the VA covers?
