I am grandfathered in which is good, a new policy for less coverage would be over $100/mth more. I do not understand why people cannot keep their own policies and get the benefits of Obamacare. That would make more sense. I thought that insurance would be cheaper with this new plan, not more expensive. I think that it is important for all people to be able to have coverage, however I do not think that Transgender operations should be included or anything that is not life threatening. That really bother me or anything similar since it has nothing to do with being ill or hurt like breaking a leg. I am not judging an person's right to have the operation. Individual policies with my provider go up annually 12-25% each year. That is a lot of money without income raises. I was really looking forward to some relief from the high premiums, but there is none.

He has to blame someone else always.....he sure never takes the responsibility for anything! I definitely will not put any of my information on a website that continues to fail. It failed and was down the whole time that Sebelius was testifying on Wednesday. Insurance is NOT getting cheaper with this healthcare 'stuff'. That was obvious to anyone who listened to the hearing on Wednesday, too. Those few states that are claiming the insurance is cheaper are the ones that accepted Obamacare and most of their people who have signed up have signed up for Medicaid, so who is going to be paying for those people? Of course...those people whose insurance rates have sky-rocketed on this new healthcare. I kept wondering how people who have families to take care of are going to afford the higher rates and still buy food and clothes for their children. Sebelius never even commented when anyone said anything about that. Bottom line is...she doesn't give a (blank) and neither does Obama.

One thing the democrats lack entirely, is honesty.

They blame Bush for stuff that Obama caused to go wrong. They blame Fox News. They single out and attack anyone who brings a story of their failed policies.

They heap false labels on anyone who disagrees with them, calling them extremist, anarchist, etc. Its like watching old films of Hitler rants from the 1930s. The liberals have the same brainwashed mentality as that.

They never admit their opponents points.

They never admit to a mistake or an error.

That dont mean that they are fooling anyone. It just means that they have extreme arrogance.

And honesty isnt important to them. They look at that as if it is the most useless and meaningless thing in the world.

It's called the Affordable healthcare act. Not the Affordable insurance act.

Let me explain this one more time to you corporate teabagger , Fox News puppets. I work for a huge corporation too. Went Wall Street few years ago. Benefits keep disappearing. Got a letter last week, insurance premiums are going up 5%( didn't say it but kind blamed it on Obamacare ( hey, give me an extra $5 million oer year and I'll blame it on Obamacare too ) here's what they said.

IN ALL THE POLLS THAT WEVE TAKEN THRU THE YEARS (.Been there several years, don't remember being polled a single time) they said your number one concern was the amount of premiums being taken from your payroll. So we haven't raised them for five years. Now we have had to raise the deductibles to do it, but we've managed to keep the rates the same.

SHEEPLE. WHAT THAT MEANS IS WE HAVE SLOWLY BEEN F'ED BY OUR OWN COMPANY AND THEIR SHAREHOLDER. THAT MONEY FOES INTO THEIR POCKETS. THEY DONT GIVE TWO HOOTS HOW MUCH YOU PAY, JUST HOW MUCH ENDS UP IN THEIR HANDS.

REMEMBER THIS : EVERY SINGLE SOLITARY DAY A GUY ON WALL STREET SITS AND ASS WITH A LAWYER AND TRIES RO FIGURE OUT HOW TO GIVE YOU LESS BY CHARGING YOU MORE. HE PURCHASES LITTLE RON RAMSEYS AT THE STATE LEVEL FOR $ 49? And that includes a blowjob. Then he purchases a federal rat like Phil Roe (voted against every program except those that benedit the wealthy) cries daily for the pipeline (Billionaiire Koch brothers owns this KOCHSUCKER) he's made $2 million since being a congressman. And he would throw any amount of money at military contractors.

So you stay there with you heads up your asses watching Fox News while every single asset that you own slowly goes from your hand into the hands of the already rich. In ten years it's castles and shacks in America ..... Thanks you, I'm a socialist, I'm a communist, I'm a LIBERLAl, I'm whatever the hell that you're NOT.

Sad part is, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are probably the most reliable news source out here. They admit that it is fake news, while the other news organizations lie every hour and claim to be legitimate.

Not sure how much FOX could contort this report. It seems only 6 people were able to sign up for ACA on its opening day. Now, that is quite a silly figure considering this is legislature that got shoved down Americas throat. They have been working on that bill for how long now? And they didn't even have it prepared fully by the time they enacted it. Socialism is coming to your doorsteps.

The policies being cancelled by insurance companies do not cover the minimum standards of care mandated by the A.C.A. I these policies are good for insurance companies in that they collect premiums, but when a policy holder has a medical issue the insurance company pets little or nothing. Those are the policies being cancelled. Since no one has a crystal ball, why can't there be a policy for everyone that covers you if you get sick or injured regardless of the illness or injury? What if you pick a policy that covers everything but cancer and you are diagnosed with cancer? Insurance is a racket, that's why they make billions! I do not understand the defense of them by people who could be adversely affected.

Obamacare is not about health care... it is all about power and control over the American people. Typical of all of Obama's tenure his so-called healthcare bill doesn't solve anything. Simply gives government significantly more control over your life.
Stupid liberal idiot squealing more bs, the people were lied to repeatedly by obama.

. We really need single payer in the U.S. Get rid of the middleman skimming off the top known as insurance companies. There is no reason a family in the U.S. should ever go bankrupt over medical bills. Many with insurance go bankrupt over an injury or illness. The size of someone's bank account should not determine whether they have medical care. The President has done what he could with absolutely no help from the opposing party.

Amen, I love watching these guys. They do lean a bit to the left, however, they don't smoke screen it...you know you're watching a comedy show vs watching clowns on Fox/MSNBC try to pass off their BS as facts. It's too bad intelligent, honest guys like these won't run for office.

More than 175 pages of internal Obama administration memos, obtained by the House Oversight Committee, released Tuesday and reviewed by ABC News, present the most detailed account yet of the troubled rollout of the federal health insurance exchange, HealthCare.gov .
The documents make clear that the administration grossly lied and underestimated the scope of the website's technical problems; struggled to contain widespread confusion among insurers and applicants; and now faces a barrage of new challenges triggered by its emphasis on paper applications.

Who would trust a liar who repeatedly lies?

How about what did the O White House do in order to make sure things were developing properly. Play Golf? Attend Fund Raisers? Campaign how he is oposed to the policies coming out of the Government that he was in charge of? Why aren't these questions ever asked? Why is every problem severely underestimated? Complete failure after failure. Ignorant Sheep voters you deserve this, other do not.

We the people have not had leadership for over 5 years now! Don't be ignorant idiots or just stupid sheep to what the democrats have done to America now. You will be serfs for life defending corruption and lies.

I believe our representatives in Congress should work together to make the ACA work. We need this in our area. There are thousands of uninsured people here! Look at the turnout for the RAM clinics they have from time to time. Insurance companies are the real problem. The policies that are being cancelled (by the insurance companies, not the government) do not meet the minimum standards of coverage set forth in the ACA. They are "junk policies"! I hope this works for the sake of those without coverage. You should attempt to manifest a spirit of cooperation within yourself and try to make this work for those that do not have the ability to go to the doctor should they need to.

People would line up for bags of dog shit as long as it was free.

Take a look at the 'body art' and face metal on a lot of those RAM clinic folks and you might conclude they spend their money on what they want, then line up for freebie services.

Did anyone see see Fox news where they were asking people on the street witch one was better, the affordable care act or obamma care? People didn't know they were the same. Same dumba*#*# freebee ice cream voter that voted for him and think this is good.

On the news that a 44% of doctors polled in NY said they will NOT be providing services to Obamcare patients (i.e., they will not sign the contract to be in the Obamacare network). If I heard right, only 23% of NY doctors said they plan to join the Obamacare exchange network.

So, that means a bunch of people will have this new insurance but won't have many places to use it. Just like a Liberal program--underthought and half-baked.

Keep in mind that we're talking NY--one of the true-blue-Democrat states. What will the percentages of doctors opting out be in Conservative states?

Also, Kathleen Sibilius is being questioned about the Obamacare website debacle, and guess what she's doing? She's doing the same thing that Hillary did during Ben Ghahzi murders. She's telling Congress to hold her accountable instead of the President. How many fall guys does this President have to throw under the bus OR She is an old line democrap professional politician just as her father was. The first rule, thou shall not speak bad about another democrap. They stick together no matter how they may hate each another. After all she didn't write the law or vote on it she just got to take care of her bosses friends with huge contracts.

Don't forget obuma's promise that to get his obuma care will be as simple as buying an Airline ticket on line.
And to think the majority of the dimocrats are still making excuses. President Obama is making Nixon look like an Eagle Scout.

CNN reported that the White House is pressuring insurance companies not to criticize Obamacare publicly; meanwhile, the White House and other Democrats are dishonestly trying to blame recent premium hikes on the insurance companies, instead of admitting that the coverage changes required by Obamacare are the driving force behind the PREDICTED price hikes.

When are people in this country going to wake up and see that they elected a dictator who tramples freedom and justice wholesale?

How many scandals will we endure where even the LIBERAL press starts turning on the President and reporting his abuses, while the President's men take the fall for him and the White House refuses to turn over the evidence to Congress. On that note, the President's admin just did it AGAIN with Ben Ghazi (refused to turn over evidence to Congress).

Will one of the people who supported Obama for President please be a man and criticize the President as he deserves for breaking his promises? Just one? One? Anyone?

Is that crickets?

Horse hockey. In VA they Lunchburg Jerry Falwell HYPOCRITS wanted to tell me what my wife and I can and cannot do in bed.

Look. If you want to cram your heads full of horseshit, try to keep it to yourselves. There's others that have their heads if pull of shit. Let them meet at churches, KKK hate group meetings and coffee shops. Nobody else is buying what the wealthy are selling to gullible.

There's much more corporate welfare that welfare for people.

I go every day to the elderly who saved this country from Hitler. Now we have a REICHT wing a just like Hitler, who was a sexual deviant by the way.

They spew that same stupid cap over and over. Liberals hate Christmas (we love Christmas) we won't work (we work, we just don't want EVERYTHING we work for going to those who pretty much run GOX and own the Republican Party ( and food stamps ). I meet elderly every day who have to ration out their food.

Yes there's freeloaders.

Picture some fat worthless beer guzzling unemployed haired over 30 year old living with his baby momma in the projects. Now picture the six members of the Walton family. I would take away the food stamps for the freeloader, but I'd wish pancreatic cancer on the Walton family member.

No opologies . Enemies of Hod and mine ...
