May I ask what you are referring to by your statement of "Just wait until they file their state income tax return as a married couple."

I think I know where you are going but want to make sure.

Hope your day is starting out to be a good one!

Karen is a hater. She hates the hand she has been dealt in life and hates anyone she sees as having more than she or better than she has. It's a matter of her getting what she thinks she deserves. Obama has played to the low information voter and less intelligent in our society. Obama also uses race to leverage one part of our society against the other. Those who recognize him for what he is are completely against what he stands for. They see him as a power addicted egomaniac. He divides our country and is only representing liberal socialists not as the president of all America.
The end result of this socialism experiment is bad for America. Karen can't see the forest for the trees but she's giddy with delight over getting her health coverage (which none of us wanted her to do without in the first place)but wait until the 'death panel' decide her condition is progressive in nature so why pour more money into expensive meds and therapy when she's going to die earlier than the average healthy person. Just give her something to knock her out or better yet unplug the respirator altogether.
This new way of handling healthcare will come to bite her in the arse. What goes around come around.
My mother always said "be careful what you wish for". ACA is turning out to be a lot different than what I thought it would be. Never imagined it would be such a mess.

Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) is one of the Senate's true characters. On climate, he defaults to the almighty, asserting god would not allow his planet to deteriorate. Thus, he gives an inkling that he knows there really is a problem, but has a handy excuse for not doing anything about it. The health of the planet is left to the heavens.
For his own health, however, he is, curiously, not so cavalier about dismissing human intervention. Well, perhaps not so curiously.
Indeed, Inhofe not only wants human intervention, he wants it immediately. Apparently, they discovered he had severe blockage of his heart (coronary) arteries while he was having a screening colonoscopy, and performed Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG) the next day.
I wish Senator Inhofe a speedy and uneventful recovery.
As one of those determined not to allow his own voters such human intervention in their own illnesses, Inhofe is a virulent opponent of the Affordable Care Act, to the point where he would have crashed the entire world economy to prevent it.
Inhofe asserted with seeming certainty that, had he lived in another country with socialized medicine, he would not have had his surgery so quickly. He also claimed he might have died waiting. And, he concluded, this is what will happen (or is happening?) under the Affordable Care Act.
According to his website the good Senator is 78 years old. One can assume that his surgery was paid for by Medicare, i.e., by yours truly. Or, if Members of Congress do not live under the same laws that we do, that his Federal Employee Health Benefit Plan, also paid for by yours truly, covered his care.[Or, did the Kochs pay?].
Medicare actually is, almost, socialized medicine. The "almost" is that physicians and nurses are not employed and hospitals are not owned by Medicare. Instead, Medicare pays them for services rendered to Medicare patients. But, it's close enough to socialized medicine to deem it so.[By contrast, the Veterans Admininstration owns its hospitals and its entire staff is on salary, i.e., complete socialism].
So, what have we here? Same as when Rush Limbaugh had angina in Hawaii, where they have socialized medicine? He also received prompt and expert treatment, and he lauded it without knowing it was socialized medicine? Ignorance, or deliberate ignorance?*
Anyone treated under insurance arising under the Affordable Care Act ("ACA") will receive care that is much, much less socialism than Medicare. The ACA regulates the private insurance industry. It does not pay hospitals or physicians or personnel directly, it regulates the industry and subsidizes premiums to that industry. In Washington State, for example, we have the choice (under socialism, there is no choice, remember???) of 46 different plans. When Baskin-Robbins launched, they offered only 31 different flavors, and that was supposed to be a tasty example of the free market at work.
Indeed, the ACA establishes markets in the states for private insurance that was deliberately modeled after the Federal Employees Health Benefit Plan, the only other likely coverage for Senator Inhofe---unless, that is, the Kochs insisted upon paying.
In summary, then, Inhofe was either treated under a near-socialist system, Medicare, or the FEHBP that was the model for the ACA, aka, Obamacare.
What makes more sense to me is allowing insurance companies to sell products across state lines instead of allowing 46 (according to your post)in Washington state and only 1 or 2 in another state.
People have less choice with higher premiums, co-pay, deductibles
so high that many are stunned by the increase cost with ACA implementation.

Haven't you heard of the hundred of thousands who are loosing healthcare policies? One insurance company in Florida shit canned 300,000 but this phenomenon is happening all across America.

The State of Oklahoma doesn't recognize same sex marriage. So if they file as a married couple they would be breaking the law.

Insurance can sell across state lines already. Your premiums are according to your zip code. Even if you are buying here in Oklahoma rates are different for the same coverage depending to where you live. That goes for property, auto and health.

The computer software company told Obama it was behind schedule and not ready for opening.

The Republicans asked for one thing before the shutdown, delay the start of the ACA, because it's not ready.

But Obama played politics with the American people.

The shutdown was HIS fault, not Republicans.

Anyone who doesn't see this is a blind democrat or card carrying progressive liberal.

Obamacare 101 High Deductibles are very attractive to the dumbasses.
They make the monthly Premiums look affordable but provide little care.

And what Liberal retards don't understand it Kills Hospitals.
Reason is, most people do not have the $6350 to pay the Deductible.

In a sudden serious accident or illness an ER visit can easily exceed the $6350.
Which means if the Hospital doesn't get the deductable up front, it only gets an IOU.

Hospitals cannot function for long under these conditions, hence was the reason for ACA to start with... to stop the over usage of ER's.

Many folks can't afford to pay for healthcare so Uncle Sam sends them some money to pay for it.

Where in the hell do liberals think those po-folk can suddenly come up with the $6350 deductible?

Reminder to all again: Laws are made for Progressive Communist To Break so...

Federal judge green lights lawsuit against ACA - aka: Obamacare... to move ahead as planned.

The administration is doing anything they please with no regard to the checks and balances built into our system.

IRS and Obama are again ignoring laws like usual, like the subsidy aspect they say they will now ignore.

Talk about being asleep at the wheel...
but hey - go ahead and spy on every American for National Security...

Air Force officers entrusted with the launch keys to long-range nuclear missiles have been caught twice this year leaving open a blast door that is intended to help prevent a terrorist or other intruder from entering their underground command post, Air Force officials said.

Then why on health insurance through ACA are there so many choices in one state as compared to another? One earlier poster said Washington State had 46 to choose from?

BREAKING NEWS!
Emergency Backroom Meeting Called...

Something is up with Obama and Obamacare.

Closed door with Democrats Only... sharing the real problems.

Obama meeting with CEO's of Health Care Ins. Co. Look for some kind of delay they won't call a delay. Most likely an extension of enrollment. They cannot have this on the table in November 2014 as Democrats will be slaughtered.

We now return you to your regular postings...
ROTFLMAO @ the inept Obama Administration...

One more thing: No matter how you buy any type of insurance [from in state agent, Out of state agent or on line make sure the insurance company has a license in that state in which you live and being insured for. Not all insurance company are licensed in every state to sell with in that state.

Insurance company have the options to whether they want to sell with any state. If they think there are to many facts to make selling in a state high risk they have the option not to sell with in that state.
