The ravaging effects of Obamacare are already being felt even though its implementation is just in its earliest of stages. We doubt most people, even some of those vehemently opposed to the legislation, could have imagined its massive impact and costs to Americans so early in the transition. Millions of people have either lost their health insurance, canít obtain it because insurance companies can no longer offer them or the rates have skyrocketed up to 40% or more.
In order to minimize the deleterious impact of this forced government mandate, exemptions are being granted to certain companies or groups including the teacherís union. So much for equality and fairness. It is also a blatant grab for votes.
Obamacare should have never happened and it was rammed down the throats or essentially up our figurative rectums Ė ENTIRELY AGAINST OUR WILL AND BY CORRUPT AND DESPICABLE MEANS INCLUDING OVERT BRIBES, EXEMPTIONS AND THREATS.
Donít think it canít get worse, because under the Democratsí ill-thought-out plan, it will. Large pieces of ObamaCare that will make the system painfully expensive and increase federal intrusion still havenít become law.
The next Congress needs to get focused fast on stopping the march toward costly, substandard care.

You forgot to scream that it WAS PASSED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT!

Unless of course that isn't an approved talking point anymore..... Since that's when the House passed their first CR to defund the ACA.

Other than that, you did a wonderful job of copy and paste for the bagger argument as to how health insurance should put profits in front of lives.

Health Insurance is not a right........ You put in 6 grand a year for your family and you may only need to pay 4000 in medical bills....... I forgot, you went to CMU.....

Here is a thought lets just round off and say you pay $5000.00 in premiums for five years and you only use a thousand dollars worth of care or what ever you get the money back...

Did your education explain what happens when your 6k annual premium ends up covering your cancer illness that's going to cost in the hundreds of thousands of dollars?

Your 6 K premium doesn't cover that. Everybody else in the insurance pool covers your cancer illness that could have been prevented if you hadn't smoked 3 packs a day your whole damn life and when there's not enough money in the insurance pool to cover those treatments for the number of insured drawing on it, guess what happens? Yup...the rules of what's covered and what isn't, change and suddenly grandma is offered a suicide pill instead of chemo because....well....it's cheaper.

Bitch boi is too ignorant to consider nuances like that.

He and Lil Stinker ought to move in with each other and marry. They'd be a good match.

But, but, they "need" to be and "have a right" to be for-profit which is why so many folks are denied benifits...to increase the profit margin.
That's where the extra money goes...right into some CEO's pockets for his/her private jets and multiple homes, etc etc.

Individuals will have the choice to buy an insurance policy or pay a $95 fine. If youíre a low-wage worker, young and healthy, the penalty makes more sense than insurance. Even if youíre older and less healthy, you wonít be turned away at an emergency room should you need care. So why enroll?

Wow are you ever ignorant. T-bagger thinking at its finest. Look up the term Insurance or try to find something that explains what insurance is and what it does. Unbelievable how stupid you are.

Once again, Health Insurance is a product offered by the private sector...... If you can buy it the buy it...... It is not a right...... Health Care is also a private sector endeavor..... Let the govt open hospitals to serve the needy..... Heck, they have lots of social programs they are paying for by taking our money by gun point....... Plenty of money there...... Just look how the VA works..... What could possibly go wrong......
good luck

Good luck if you (or your wife) gets pregnant. Good luck if you get cancer. Good luck if you fall off a ladder and break your back and end up in the hospital for 3 months. Good luck if you break your ankle playing backyard football and end up with $15,000 in medical bills. And should you turn up at the emergency room without insurance you'll just pass the cost along to those of us who do have insurance. Good plan.
good luck

And it will continue to be offered through the private sector. Obamacare does not change that.

This isn't the VA. This is making medical insurance affordable to those who can't get it through their job. This is keeping insurance companies from telling you "No!" if you have a pre-existing condition. This makes everyone responsible and accountable for their own health and insurance and will limit the amount of freeloaders who use the emergency room as their primary care physician, which in turn, makes your rates go up. Aren't you sick of freeloaders? Aren't you sick of paying for some fat, overweight guy who smokes going to the emergency room every other week? What happened with you folks? I thought you were against socialism?

How does it "limit the amount of freeloaders who use the emergency room as their primary care physician"?

The way they got around the unconstitutional nature of forced consumption was to call it a tax. And so that makes it taxation without representation. It is a tax from which no tangible benefit can be tied back to me. Not better roads or schools or infrastructure. Itís just a tax because they can. Or at least they think they can. It will get away from them just like it always does. Donít willfully pay into their system. Make them collect the tax. Realize that the fewer real payers who buy their useless insurance, the higher the actual per person cost will be to the medical industry which is complicit with this scam. This is because Obama set a very high price for insurance but then put a bunch of ability to pay tests into the law so that poor people will get insurance very cheaply while those higher up on the scale pay very dearly for it. The dirty secret is that if the only ones in the plan are those looking for handouts and those who do not qualify for all the exemptions just pay the tax, the system will self destruct of its own corrupt weight as a flood of non-payers enter the system without an offsetting flood of forced consumers. So just pay the tax and keep fighting this crap. Donít join their system and it will collapse on its own. Join the system and it will just feed the bacterial parasite known as big government.

So you'd rather stay with a company that has the right to throw you under the bus the minute you get sick.......
