Survey after survey shows the public to be confused, anxious and misinformed about what health care reform does and how it will affect them.

Fewer than half of Americans think they know enough about the law to understand how it affects them, according to poll findings the Kaiser Family Foundation published last month. More than a third believe they'll be worse off, 23 percent think they'll be better off and 37 percent say it won't make much difference.

When Congress wrote the law known as the Affordable Care Act, their idea was to maintain Americans' current health coverage as much as possible, to boost consumer protections in the health insurance market for individuals, and to cover the uninsured.

That doesn't mean all workers will keep what they have. The Congressional Budget Office predicts that 7 million fewer people will get their health insurance through work by 2023, although jobs will remain the most common source of health coverage for Americans. People who work part-time, have low-wage jobs or are employed by smaller companies are most likely to lose their job-based benefits and to use the exchanges instead.

There's already been a steady drumbeat of news stories about companies changing health benefits, like Trader Joe's and Home Depot dropping part-time workers from their health plans.

While this phenomenon is real and disruptive to those workers, the outliers shouldn't be cause for concern for most people who have job-based health benefits, said Helen Darling, the president and CEO of the National Business Group on Health, a Washington-based association of large employers.
"Nothing has to change for you if you have employer-sponsored coverage," Darling said.

A survey of U.S. employers found that 93.5 percent of companies definitely or very likely will continue to offer health benefits to workers, compared to 1 percent that definitely won't or are very likely not to, according to a report the International Federation of Health Benefit Plans, a London-based trade group, issued in May.
Employers provide health benefits both as a means of attracting and retaining employees and because they aren't taxed like wages (so they're cheaper than raises). "No one is going to say,'Whoops, we just decided that we're not going to give you health benefits because we don't think they're that important.' It just isn't going to happen," Darling said. And experts don't expect large employers to make more changes or raise premiums much more than if the health law hadn't been enacted, she said.

But anecdotes about individual companies are causing some worry among workers -- worry fomented by Obamacare opponents and the media, Darling said.
"It's more the press that is drumming up attention in a negative way, much of it being driven by people who want to make it a negative experience," Darling said.

Likewise, the debate over whether Obamacare will cause health insurance premiums to soar on the exchanges -- so-called rate shock -- needlessly confuses people who have coverage from work, Levitt said.

"They see these headlines that premiums may skyrocket and they think that's them," he said. It's not; it's about insurance people buy directly.

In fact, a survey of employers the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Health Research and Educational Trust published last month showed job-based health insurance prices rose an average of just 5 percent for single people this year. "There's no reason to think that's going to change dramatically," Levitt said.

On the individual market for health insurance, some people, especially those who are younger and healthier, may see higher premiums, not counting the available tax credits. Others will pay less than today. That's largely due to new rules, such as requiring better benefits than commonly available on the individual market today, guaranteeing coverage to people with pre-existing conditions and limiting how much more older people can be charged than younger consumers.

Medicare beneficiaries have even less cause for concern, Quincy said, even though a Kaiser Family Foundation poll found that older Americans disapprove of the Affordable Care Act at higher rates than younger people.

Express Scripts, which manages prescription drug benefits for health insurance plans, surveyed Medicare enrollees and discovered many misperceptions -- including 17 percent who think they have to buy coverage on the exchanges. In reality, it's illegal for a health insurer to sell a plan through the exchange to someone on Medicare.

People on Medicare don't need to do anything different this year than they have in the past, Quincy said. "The main message is: Nothing has changed for you. You're good to go."

Fox News Brands U.S. Citizens With Undocumented Parents As 'Children Of The Corn'

This probably isn't the best way to reach Latino viewers.

In a segment titled "The Grapevine," Fox News referred to undocumented youth as "children of the corn" in a graphic prominently displayed in the top right corner of the screen.

Chris Wallace guest-hosted the Sept. 19 edition of Fox News "Special Report," according to Media Matters, where he summarized a recent analysis by Los Angeles County estimating that undocumented parents would receive $650 million in government assistance this year. The report neglects to mention that the parents are receiving the government benefits to assist their U.S. citizen children.

While Wallace speaks, a graphic appears with the title "Children of the Corn" -- the title of a horror story by Stephen King that has been adapted to film. It's not clear why the producers chose that title, though corn is traditionally an important element of the Mexican diet.

Wallace opens the segment by saying the figures amount to more "proof of the economic impact of the immigration debate." Despite the framing of the report, economists generally agree that immigration fosters economic growth, though it can have negative impacts on some workers who compete directly with undocumented workers.

Watch the video of Fox News referring to U.S. citizens as "children of the corn" above and let us know what you think of the word choice in the comments below.

Not even fauxbox has a story on it. bobbysocks doesn't even post a link while he is crying about my long posts. I read ALL news (minus the conspiracy and jihad sites haha) and will continue to post like I have since I was defending Jack Conway against the GRANDrand.

If you go to the US Politic site to get to this thread you will see the long list of threads. Believe me, most are temporary, have the same thing posted, or is just a hate, gloom and doom thread with worse BS than on this one the clowns and their socks spin. You can watch them bounce back and forth to them. I pop in the President bashing one from time to time to watch arisocks play his game there and the loon reposting everything she does here as well as watch them recruit to this site like they have done here. I will stick with the KENTUCKY forum where I live and the election coming up really matters for this POOR RED STATE. I hope to help change it BLUE. If just one vote changes due to my input I have won. So I try to expose our CONgressmen AND truly believe it is time to DITCH MITCH. Then GRANDrand and turn this into a prospering BLUE state. It is time. Great things will come to Kentucky.

Have a good day. I am out in again as soon as I have my little lunch break. I am decorating for the fall and getting out the Halloween decorations. My yard looks wonderful. All manicured and looking good. I love it. So nice out. Enjoy. I will.

I hope to see you later.

THEY CALL THEMSELVES THE REPUBLICAN PARTY! But in fact if it weren’t for GOP homophobes fear pundits, Fox lies and propaganda, disenfranchising minority and the poor, religious and women bigotry, race-baiting, fraud-based claims, disingenuous racist hoax, plus gerrymandering to support their "white only" southern strategy - they wouldn't garner enough votes to be called a Republican party.

Two seventh-grade students in Virginia Beach, Va., were handed long-term suspensions Tuesday that will last until the end of the school year for playing with an airsoft gun in one of their front yards while waiting for the school bus.

WAVY-TV reports that 13-year-old Khalid Caraballo and Aidan Clark will face an additional hearing in January to determine if they will be expelled for "possession, handling and use of a firearm" because the guns were fired at two others playing in Caraballo's yard.

A neighbor saw Khalid shooting the airsoft gun in his yard and called 911, telling the dispatcher, "He is pointing the gun, and it looks like there's a target in a tree in his front yard," the station reported.

Khalid claims he never took the toy gun to the designated bus stop or Larkspur Middle School, according to the report. Two other students who fired guns were also suspended.

In a letter obtained by WAVY.com , school principal Matthew Delaney found that the "children were firing pellet guns at each other, and at people near the bus stop." Delaney states in the letter that one child "was only 10 feet from the bus stop, and ran from the shots being fired, but was still hit."

The school's so-called "zero-tolerance" policy on guns extends to private property, according to the report.

Khalid's mother, Solangel Caraballo, said it's ridiculous that her son and his friends were suspended because they were firing the airsoft gun on private property.

"My son is my private property. He does not become the school's property until he goes to the bus stop, gets on the bus, and goes to school," Caraballo told the station.

Khalid told WAVY-TV he thinks the punishment is unfair and may hurt his chances of getting into a good college after graduating from high school.

"It's on your school record. The school said I had possession of a firearm. They aren't going to ask me any questions. They are going to think it was a real gun, and I was trying to hurt someone," he said.

That's exactly what the Repubs said about Medicare when it started. What is the Repub healthcare plan for America? They don't want ObamaCare and they tried to get rid of Medicare. Exactly what is the plan for those that can't pay for a $100K dollar heart attack or a $200K dollar cancer out of their pocket?

By the way halfwit, one person developing a theory requires them to first form a hypothesis, then try to disprove said hypothesis via scientific testing methods using dependent and independent variables; and if unsuccessful, compare it to many other tested hypothesis’s, then, and only then can a ‘theory’ be formed; of course you do not have the intelligence to understand that!

You are pretty much spot on with the meaning of a scientific theory, but in this context it would be a political theory, which has a much broader scope.

A theory is never an opinion of one person, it is the most commonly misused word of people with little education, except for pacific instead of 'specific' perhaps. Let's leave this be now.
