WaPo-

Will young adults face 'rate shock' because of the health-care law?

Many young, healthy Americans could soon see a jump in their health insurance costs, and insurance companies are saying: It's not our fault.

The rate shock will be nothing compared to the shock of discovering that there aren't enough qualified medical personnel.

Demand for medical care has been increased dramatically.

Supply of qualified medical personnel remains static.

In California they are already considering reducing required qualifications.

End result: poorer health care for all.

well well well, I'm so glad you brought that up, cuz here is who paid for that,
multiple companies cut back the hours of part time employees from 35 to 25 hrs per week because of oblamer care, I know one personally with 4 children and going to school on loans trying to make a career for her family, however, now with a reduction of 10 hours per week food is almost a luxury and family are helping out as much as they can to feed and house them, and because of low income and even more of an income reduction - they cannot afford a home, honest hard working people pulling together because a federal mandate designed to 'spread the wealth around' cut the income of a family trying so hard to make it,
I'm very glad about your nephew but don't you think that the family could have kicked in more or done fund raisers or sold their possessions to fund those treatments? or should millions of part time employees have more of their income cut for socialist philosophical reasons? tragedy strikes us all, the only difference is how we deal with it, oblamer took that choice away from millions of part time workers trying to make it in the worst economy since the depression - and took away the family involvement in a personal matter,
oblamer cares for no one and nobody on this or any other forum can honestly argue otherwise, the entire premise of the democrap party is to farm and breed dependency
I guess my brothers 40years in the coal mines and his wifes 30 something years as a nurse, paying taxes and health insurance don't matter to you and selling some cup-cakes well just go the Cancer-clinic and ask the people lined up around the walls if they could wait till all the money comes pouring in from the fund raisers! And just wait one day you'll be sick and you'll find out how many friends you really have!
As far as I'm concerned I've spent more time in cancer clinics than I care to recall!
Just for you I'll tell you what it is!
A room full of dying people, looking at you and wishing they were healthy and you can feel their eyes, and you know exactly what they are thinking! WHY ME?
Yep, he is in remission, could it come back? Yes it can! So that health care extension that helped him and his parents, am I grateful?
Yes I am! Now he's working pays for his own insurance and guess what next year, God forbidding if his cancer comes back, his treatments will be covered, know why? because Insurance companies can't discriminate against people with pre-existing illness.
So he might again have a chance at survival thanks to reasonable,rational,law!
BTW...THEY WOULD HAVE SOLD EVERYTHING THEY HAD, TO HELP HIM LIVE!

I don't know how you arrived at your philosophy of life, but you could use a lot of self-reflection, my friend.
Not one side, nor one person has all the answers, sometimes we must put our heads together, no matter how much it hurts!

Iím going to take you deep into the rabbitís hole. This is NOT for the unaware, i.e., the sheep who are still asleep. It may even go over the heads of some of those who are awake. As always, donít take my word for it: Do your own research and draw conclusions that make logical sense to you.

There is a tremendous amount of debate over firearms rights, and proposed legislation for what advocates call ďgun control.Ē Iím not trying to repeat whatís already going on in the echo chamber. There are plenty of unawakened people who are well enough informed to successfully fight that battle. Nor will I analyze the serious psy-op being conducted in the aftermath of the school shooting in Connecticut.
Just one MORE::)

In my ever-continuing quest to enlighten as many people as possible to use their own mind to think for themselves, I am offering here an opposite consciousness analysis of whatís really going on in a larger sense.

The system absolutely must not permit you to think outside of their controlled argument. Itís always been framed in the confines of Democrat vs. Republican and their associated value systems.

Please let us in on all these stories about people who were left to die in the streets because they couldn't get medical help because insurance companies turned them down. You can claim all kinds of fairy tales to make your story sound better but when people actually research the facts they find your fairy tales to be silly.

Does that go for the illegals that have 4 or more kids that we are now required to raise from cradle to grave because you liberals believe it's the right thing to do? I watched a friend that worked 46 years of her life and has been trying for 5 years to get disability which she rightly needs and deserves. She paid into the system for 46 years and now has to beg for help to the system she paid into but is getting nowhere fast. How many billions were spent on illegal aliens and their kids last year via medicaid and medicare? BILLIONS!!!! Yet an American citizen that has worked all of her life and qualifies for help must go to the back of the line behind the illegal criminals and suffer through years of government red tape.

Why don't you liberal idiots sponser an illegal family, go back to wherever with them and make the world a better place. Now that's a cause I will contribute heavily to! Bye-bye!

Nine Bucks an Hour? A Call for a Living Wage at $10.50 or More
By Ralph Nader / February 16, 2013 / http://tinyurl.com/cuskgkt
How could Barack Obama say, in his State of the Union speech,ďletís declare that in the wealthiest nation on earth no one who works full-time should have to live in poverty, and raise the federal minimum wage to $9.00 an hourĒ?

Back in 2008, Obama campaigned to have a $9.50 per hour minimum wage by 2011. Now heís settling for $9.00 by 2015! Going backward into the future is the price that poverty groups and labor unions are paying by giving Mr. Obama a free ride last year on this moral imperative. How can leaders of poverty groups and unions accept this back-of-the-hand response to the plight of thirty million workers who make less today than what workers made 45 years ago in 1968, inflation adjusted?

It didnít matter that the U.S. had the lowest minimum wage of any major western country (Australia is over $15, France over $11, and the province of Ontario in Canada is $10.25 Ė all of these countries also have health insurance for all).

All it takes is a little hard work. Isn't it republicans who go on and on about how if you work hard you can become one of the 1%??

She just needs to work a little harder and yes.... Pick up 10 more hours somewhere else.

At least she's working and not sucking the government teet like you and the other not so bright Repubs here.

Quit crying and grow a pair.

You're going to make republicans stroke out and die with raising minimum wage.

I think the 10 to 12 hour minimum wage with come with Hillary in 2016 with a New New Deal. Sweeping changes in taxes and unions and such. With Obama and Hillary the country will get closer to back on track.

$15.00 an hour? Take a look at a JOBS posting from Sydney (there are only 8 in the "Labor" category:

http://sydney.craigslist.com.au/lab/359455093...

now take a look at Houston, Tx (General Labor):

http://houston.craigslist.org/lab/

How difficult is it to get a job when thousands compete for 8?
That minimum wage is a dumbass idea, it just another way to artificially inflate a workers value.
A quality worker demands what they are worth, been there done that!
Skill, experience, education are things that make you stand out from the crowd... THAT will earn you more money!
