Just saw a TV ad for Mary Landrieu!
In it she states that President Obama should live up to his promise that if we liked our insurance policy, we could keep it.
But did she make the same promise before the vote for the ACA.
Doesn't that mean she also lied to us?
She is caught like a deer in the headlights. She is trying to crawfish away from obamadont care!!!That is so funny when they try to pretend like they careabout the people when in reality all she cares about is getting reelected so she can keep getting that big government check and her premium health care. Believe me she voted for us to have obamacare but she and the rest of the senators don't want it!!!What a joke!!!

Patient Protection Rights

All those against Obamacares, you really want to give up your new Patient Protection Rights? Want to risk being turned down, even higher premium rates because of your age and pre-existing conditions and maybe even bankruptcy; REALLY?

Insurance Cos. raised the premium rates and all money not used for claims and reserve (less 20% for Admin) will be returned to policy holders next year (over a billion was returned last year. You will see premiums go down and you will still have the best benefits you have ever had. Studies have shown that Obamacare did NOT cost as much as some would have you believe. It will help SAVE Medicare. How many of you are against this?

Why do you think the Insurance Cos. on Wall Street through Lobbyist through the GOP in Congress have spent SOOOOO much time and money trying to repeal it? As Obama said, stop trying to repeal it; fix what is wrong. Why are the Koch Bros. spending so much money? You say you don't want Gov't in your business, why allow dark money to enter the state? It will mean a bunch of misleading commercials!!

Keep in mind, healthcare in the free market has gotten us to this point. Obamacare should have gone as far as expanding Medicare. Healthcare should NOT be about profits for MBA's on Wall Street!!!

If you don't have your health, you have NOTHING!

How many of you wrote your GOP reps about gas prices doubling at the pump (which caused everything else to go up in price)? Did you vote any of them out? Keep in mind, they are the ones protecting the oil cos.' subsidies; are you in favor of this? Shouldn't that money go to repairing the USA infrastructure and new research? The longer we put off repairing he infrastructure, the more it will cost!

Mary Landrieu has worked on behalf of ALL the people of LA and did it with integrity. Unlike the GOP in Congress, she has tried to work with all members of the Senate. She is the ONLY one who spoke up about rate increases in Flood Insurance. Delay rate increases until the flood maps can be reviewed/corrected. If you did not choose to live in an area that has a high rate of flooding, then you should not pay like those that chose to, right?

Idiots like you think that Obamacare is an insurance policy. Insurance Cos. raised the rates. They are trying to scare people into repealing their own safety net. All those cancellations came from insurance cos. that changed those high profit policies; Obamacare does NOT allow them to continue increasing the rates without increasing the benefits! Isn't that what you wanted?

By the way, Obamacare is what Ronald Reagan promised the American people back in the 80's. He said that Corporate America would provide good jobs with living wages, healthcare and a retirement. We should not have had to wait so long! We are still paying the price of Reagan and W. Bush's time in office. That is really what you are angry about, right?

Allow me to set the record straight:

Obamacare is the Affordable Healthcare Act which includes Patient Protection Rights.

Everyone LOVES Medicare, well, Obamacare gives you the same rights as Medicare. So why NOT take Wall Street profits outs of healthcare and expand Medicare? Again, insurance is, by nature, a social program; not a mfg. plant with products. Are you really that easy to fool?

Those of you screaming about the rate increase in Flood Ins.; well keep you ears open to what the GOP wants to do in the House. They want to turn ALL policies over to the FOR PROFIT market. GOOD LUCK with that!!! They don't seem to want to delay increases until the Flood maps are reviewed/corrected. Again, why do we need insurance in the FOR PROFIT arena; why insurance premiums collected under a branch of FEMA. No huge salaries w/perks and No dividends to pay; just pay claims! Sounds good doesn't it?

Another thing you need to understand, the GOP wants to get rid of Regs and the EPA. They want to allow corporations to do as they please in YOUR neighborhood. You want that?

Should be: why NOT collect flood ins. premiums under a branch of FEMA".?

FEMA would put forth CLEAR policy rules, not pages of small print that will keep them from paying claims; as most experienced after Katrina, Rita and all the other hurricanes with for profit ins. policies.

If you choose to live in a flood prone area, you pay higher premiums. If you don't live n a flood prone area and there is a 50/100 year flood, you are covered. Premiums paid should mostly be for claims; not huge salaries, perks and dividends, right?

If you don't have your health, you have nothing. If you don't have your home, you are homeless. People like Karl R. and the Koch Bros. don't care about you, they only care about winning this little game they are playing! Seems to me that B. Jindal is one of their playmates.

Again, Mary Landrieu is the ONLY one that spoke up about he rate increases and put forth legislation to delay increases. Noticed how the GOP kept quiet?

you re deluded, true, if you cut your finger you may get prompt acceptable medical care, care which i can do better and more promptly at home with comparable results, if you come down with cancer or any other major malady and you are 60 years or close on you, you are a gross liability to the oligarchy, and near useless, you will be provided pain medication and set to die, the same was shown with the norwegien socialst system when working poor women were given sugar pill for breast cancer being they lacked social connection, of course they then found out the other medication really had no benefit to the others, but still, that is how your system will operate, can t operate any other way, human nature is no different, and will not change

So there you have it folks! The best the libtards have to offer... Nothing but a bunch of cut and paste garbage, cause they can't form an opinion of their own, only the ones borrowed from the current regime in the "white" house.. people like this visit forums like this ALL day long,`cause they don't work for a living; WE are the ones supporting them.
They have gotten their handouts for too many years now and they are scared shitless that it will come to an end.. Living for GENERATIONS in public housing doesn't exactly qualify them as experts on who should be elected..
How about getting off your dead asses and get a J O B ?

All insurance, by nature, are social programs. Stop believing the BS from the MBA's marketing plans! Not mfg. and certainly NO products.

Obamacare is not an insurance policy, but Patient Protection Rights. Rights you have not seen in 30 years.

Fight to repeal Obamacare, is about PROFIT! Insurance industry raised premiums, but will have to return money not used in accordance with Obamacare rules. Over a $1 billion was returned last year.

Obamacare is about ongoing wellness; not saving people who chose to slowly kill themselves by smoking, overeating/drinking...

Obamacare is NOT about keeping people alive until age 100 without a quality of life. That is just CRAZY! People need to go to their reward, right?

Your time would be better spent fighting for the creation of good jobs with living wages and health/retirement benefits. That is the way for more people to pay taxes and get off of welfare. More money circulating/improving the economy. Why should so much money be in foreign banks and investments?

New Rx commercials have a "cancer" warning, or haven't you noticed. MBA way to do away with "class action lawsuits". You will now have to pay full price for the Rx's and be part of the clinical trials; you know guinea pigs. OK with that?

No one here has put forth a workable/cheaper way to fix the healthcare system. Obamacare, with it faults, is close to Medicare. The next step in my opinion, expand Medicare. Get rid of the small confusing print on policies. Continuity of healthcare is the best route to take. Save Medicare.

I don't know one person who would give up their new PPR's or would allow Medicare to change over to a voucher plan at the mercy of the For Profit insurance industry. Do you?

As far as treatment, if you have a moron for a doctor, you will not receive good treatment; no matter how much money you throw at them. On the other hand, there are good doctors out their that put their patients first.

If the medical office is more concern with their marketing plans (commercials) than their patients; run in the other direction. It is better to be referred by a patient than a paid marketing company, right?

Medicine is a job.

When was the last time you got a money back guarantee for the treatment you were given. When was the last time you got a wrong diagnosis?

@ Chris, you cited what is going on in other countries.

Americans pay way more for healthcare and are way less healthier and don't live a long. FACT.

By the way, America is the "greatest" country on Earth! I know we can do a better job if we just take "GREED" out of the equation, don't you think?

Are you REALLY in favor of turning the whole thing back over to the Insurance Industry (Wall Street)?

We have come too far to tuck our tails and run scared. GOP in Congress is just plan out of luck! Shouldn't they be fighting for Affordable Healthcare and Living wages to pay for t? Paul Ryan's plan used Obamacare savings - No Obamacare, No savings; Duh!

You really don't get it, GREED is represented by 1% of the US population. Profits should come after living wages and healthcare/retirement benefits are paid. The wealthiest people on Earth got their money from the underpaid hard working poor (here and abroad). Read an article the other day, 85 people hold the equivalent wealth of 1/2 of the people on Earth (3.5 billion). Ann Romney said Mitt got his money legally. Warren Buffet said the same and then said "change the law". Ronald Reagan made it more attractive NOT to pay a living wage w/benefits when he reduced the "unearned" tax rate. Before, corporations would rather pay the workers before paying the tax.

Reagan and W. Bush campaigned on REDUCING the size of Gov't and Reagan tripled the national debt (brought us into the trillions) and W. Bush doubled the national debt (after Clinton Admin. balanced the budget with a surplus to reduce the National Debt in the foreseeable future).

Gov't in the right hands is GOOD (not perfect, nothing is perfect). At present, Congress is ruled by WallStreet by way of K Street. That is the real issue here.

Want to get rid of Welfare, pay living wages with healthcare/retirement benefits! No handouts!!!

Again, Medicine is a JOB. Not everyone should be in the medical field; just like everyone should be engineers, lawyers, accountants, teachers...

Medicine took a wrong turn with "marketing" and out of control insurance industry greed. Medical commercials are disturbing to me, are they that greedy or not doing enough business to pay the bills. Medicine is one area where "word of mouth" counts 100%! It would make more sense to post audit results about their business online; you know a third party reporting their findings; representative of the taxpayers.

Take profits out of the insurance and regulate medicine. Good doctors should be paid a fair rate and bad doctors, like bad teachers, should be fired/jailed whichever is applicable. Affordable healthcare should NOT be a luxury.

Give me one good reason the Insurance Industry should still exist as is. Those that enroll people and process claims would still have jobs along with those that invest some of the reserve; if they are competent. The MBA's would have to go into the luxury car/construction arena. We would no longer require people who create BS to increase premiums and take away benefits. See, there is a place for everyone. If you want premiums to go down, this is a step in that direction.

Are you willing to give up your Patient Protection Rights and Medicare as it is today? I am really curious. My posts are about fixing and going forward; not going back to the way that we know does not work for the majority of people.
