are you confused about somthing?
prove it....

besides, premium increases cannot be directly compared because coverage is much less, with higher deductibles and copays, as a result of ObamaKKKare.....

unless you think $100 worth of "free" birth control pills is a fair trade for a $2000 increase in deductible....

Now well get to see Republicans try to beat down America again with the debt ceiling bullsh*t.
They just passed spending that they knew would create more debt that would exceed the debt ceiling.
But now they will run in circles waving their arms about "OMG OMG the debt the debt" totally forgetting most of them were there under George W Bush voting "yes" "yes" "yes" on the policies & spendings that created the worst recession in 80 years that brought about the very debt they now blame on others.
When will the Republican Party decide to help America???
When will Mr. Potato head?

Hospital Forced to Deny Treatment for Kids With Severe Medical Conditions Sues Obamacare

Thanks to Obamacare, the quality of many Americans’ current healthcare is gradually declining. A story that made national news described how children “are being denied specialty treatment by insurance providers on the Washington Health Benefits Network.”

Administrators at Seattle Children’s Hospital said in January they predicted this would happen, and it’s even worse than they expected. Patients being denied specialty treatment at the hospital by insurance providers on the Washington health benefits exchange. Children’s filed request on behalf of 125 of their sickchild3patients. Of those, they say they got only 20 responses, eight of which were denials.

Keep swilling the Obama ade.

Remember this?
One in seven Americans are on food stamps, but the government is pushing to enroll more — in many instances working to overcome Americans’“pride,” self-reliance or failure to see a need.
The USDA has adopted a range of strategies and programs designed to bring more people to SNAP, including taking on “pride.” A 2011 Hunger Champions Award document reveals that local assistance offices have been rewarded for “counteracting” pride and pushing more people to sign up for benefits.

There is no lie. Your beloved administration is pandering to the moochers, the lazy, those who want to ride on the backs of hard working Americans. Period. Case closed.

Food stamps are a tool used by democrats to increase government dependency.
You really are quite the shill.
The USDA has conducted a massive campaign to increase the number of food stamp recipients, even hiring recruiters who must fulfill enrollment quotas. The USDA in its “Community Partner Outreach Toolkit” webpage gives ideas of how to spread awareness and increase enrollment. Ideas have been implemented such as SNAP-based bingo games for the elderly, food-stamp parties, and fliers that that read,”Be a patriot. Bring your food stamp money home.”
But it doesn’t stop here; the U.S. and Mexico began a partnership in 2004 to “provide information on eligibility criteria for Food and Nutrition Service programs,” and that includes disseminating a Spanish language flyer that tells undocumented immigrants,“You need not divulge information regarding your immigration status in seeking this benefit [food stamps] for your children.”
The U.S. also supplies 1/3 of the Puerto Rican population with food stamps, costing U.S. taxpayers roughly $2 billion annually. Clearly, food stamp programs have become more and more about numbers, instead of need.
Dump Puerto Rico now, they do us absolutely no good. They whine and snivel until we close our naval base and we give the moochers billions.

WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) released the following statement after the administration announced that the president has again unilaterally altered the implementation of ObamaCare.

“Once again, the president is giving a break to corporations while individuals and families are still stuck under the mandates of his health care law. And, once again, the president is rewriting law on a whim. If the administration doesn’t believe employers can manage the burden of the law, how can struggling families be expected to? This continued manipulation by the president breeds confusion and erodes Americans’ confidence in him and his health care law. We need fairness for all, with relief from ObamaCare for every American.”

More rabid rightwing propaganda at work

If you were to design the Platonic Ideal of a right-wing meme in the Obama era, it might go something like this:“The Obama administration has entered into an agreement with the government of Mexico to give food stamps to Mexican immigrants … the second you arrive here from Mexico.”

Food stamps! For immigrants — possibly illegal ones!— from Mexico! It’s a veritable orchestra of dog whistles. That was Daily Caller founder Tucker Carlson speaking with Laura Ingraham Tuesday, but he’s hardly alone. Oklahoma Republican Sen. Jim Inhofe told NewsMax this week of undocumented immigrants,“As long as we supply their demand here in this country, they’re going to figure out a way to get through. And I’m talking about with the food stamps.”

“In Mexico, there is no welfare. No food stamps. Now, a lot of them — Mexicans — want to come here,” Fox News host Bill O’Reilly said Monday.(Mexico actually has an expansive welfare state, including universal healthcare rights, social security and food assistance programs, though actual access is substantially lower than what’s technically on the books.)

Brian Kilmeade brought the outrage early one morning last month to Fox and Friends, noting that “while the sequester has hit and furloughs are going to happen, the USDA is promoting food stamps in Mexico.” Co-host Steve Doocy chimed in:“What a good reason to come to the United States — they get food stamps.”

So is the Obama administration luring immigrants to the U.S. with the promise of a cushy $33.35 a week in food assistance? The short answer is no. The long answer is that the program was actually started by Bush and that one has to be in the country legally for five years before even qualifying for food stamps.

The Farm bill should properly be called the Food stamp bill, 80% of it goes to food stamps.
