Insurance Premiums’ come a tumbling down. Individuals and families applying for 2014 Health Care are discovering their premiums at a 50% discount or more. N.Y. State as one example, of many states, has already approved the discounted premium cost. Citing an example of an individual that presently pays $1,000 per month will be able to obtain that same insurance coverage at a premium of $308 per month.
Obama’s administration followed up with their annalist of the CBO’s numbers, a bipartisan agency known as the Congressional Budget Office, did not take into account the sliding scale that is offered by the Health Care Bill. Adding a 10% to 18% greater premium savings to the individually insured, which will include additional discounts for incomes as high as $94,200 for a family of four.
Recent CBO report failure to project the accelerating decreasing debt provides credit to the Obama’s administrations Health Care cost projections. accuracy.
“Individual Mandates” written into the Health Care Bill is stimulating the insurance companies into a frenzy of competition. Factoring in, a wave of newly uninsured youthful clients.
Immediate reaction from the republicans extremist within their House is pushing their Bill to remove “Individual Mandate” from the Health Care Bill as it presently exist.
Fortunately democrats hold the Senate and Executive Branch and success of the republican extremist is not likely.
Individual Mandate’s value was demonstrated by N.Y. State. N.Y. State required that all applications for the 2014 Health Care Insurance be accepted. However they excluded the Individual Mandate clause. Needless to say the results were that the frail and sick of health applied as the youthful healthy citizens declined.
N.Y.’s experiment illuminates the value of the “Individual Mandate” clause. Republican’s House extremist seeking to sabotage, our Health Care, should be duly noted for what actions will be required by the voters of 2014.
The end is near.For Obamacare,that is!Let`s see if the six hundred million dollar ad campaign the administration is preparing to unleash will save it!

Truth is you are boringly ignorant. Southern whites you represent? LOL not me for sure. Think you will find Tex will be defiant to such representation by such a one as you and what you represent. Justsaying..
Here is an example of your ignorance. Immigrated 300 years ago. B.S.! What your saying your related to the Pilgrims? First Northern YANKEES. AND what does that matter as well. Is 300 years some magical number which makes everyone from that era acceptable? The little bit of Indian in me says no. For my forefathers have been here for over 30,000 years and you are still just another greenhorn immigrant. Far as I’m concerned if you were to go back from whence you came, some nomadic impoverished tribe assimilating the Neanderthal genes within your illusionary pure strain Anglo Saxon BS.
When one eludes to the bible, visions of bigotry washes over me.
. LOL we all come from Adam and Eve? Kind of like a big DUH there to any of your racist ideologies. Just where do they think their Anglo Saxon white bodies came from. Do they actually think Adam and Eve were Anglo Saxon. LOL.. They contained all the races ? Then after they propagated, their children had no recourse than to commit incest to propagate. Eventually they evolved enough to spit out the various races and Anglo Saxon being one. Hmm genetic evolution? Not even close to being the majority of the worlds population. Alas, which all have been derived from the INCEST of what Adam and Eve thrust upon our civilizations, as ordered by their god. Now with that said; raciest bigots that BELIEVE in this as being your source within creation are ancestors of incest.
AND when I encounter individuals that racist represent; I must admit that bigots are an excellent example that incest has had a role in their existence which produced such a host of lost souls. Whether or not that goes back to the original source I still question. There are those that exemplify intelligence sufficient enough to indicate we have evolved from different scenarios then what pea brains such as these “BELIEVE” in.

Let me answer it for you. Many people have no retirement fund because they don't make enough to save for retirement. A job is Just Over Broke and a
form of modern day slavery.

Housing and vehicles are way overpriced so that the average person pays at least four times more than what the real value is. Someone loses their job, then guess what?. The bank tells them to get out and walk.

After 4 1/2 years of Obamanomics fewer people are able to work and support themselves, never mind save for retirement.

At long last a leadership that dares to declare publicly of the travesties of the ever increasing inequality of our USA. Something that will surely offend the supporters of Austerity.
Republicans for near on century have been ambitious to increase inequality through various deregulated polices they insisted upon. Twice the severity of those deregulated measures rewarded the USA with the republican 1929 Great Depression and the republican 2008 Great Recession.
In both circumstances inequality flexed its Austerity authority to siphon as much wealth from the impoverished as possible. Boldly audaciously wearing their majestic desires for an aristocratic sovereignty.
Obama’s estimate of 20 30 years in the growth of the inequality is a tad off. The direct attack for Austerity by republicans can be traced back to 1933. That is when they were first publicly recognized. Prior they operated covertly for years.
Slower growth, Obama recognizes, as being associated to the strength of inequality and its link to abnormalities that cause the failure of our financial institutions. Allowing superior growth to the Aristocratic Austerity desires of republicans, via the siphoning of the Laborers’ productivity and the wealth it produces, to their coffers treasurers. Laborer’s are not relevant at this stage and will be herded for future forays into their wealth producing laborers’ productivity.
Intellectuals within the herded will lead to demonstrate of the inequality suppression demanding more Jobs without addressing the underlying currents that continuously recycles finical failures along the way. An Example; F.D.R. and Eccles set up the Glass Steagall act, regulating banks investment policies. Immediately breaking the constant bust boon of banks, as this was the norm of banks prior. Republicans continuously sought to water down the Steagall Act since day one back in 1933. By the 1980’s they had sufficiently pulled enough protective measures from the Glass Steagall Act, to produce the “Savings and Loans” debacle. First hint of the error of deregulating. Republicans continue seek to further deregulate Steagall Act and by 1999 only a ghost of it remained and was soon dispatched. Immediate consequences appeared, with the uncontrollable roller coaster rides on the stock markets of the Bush administration. Starting in 2007 the inevitable collapse of the USA’s financial institutions. Emulating eerily similar financial components failures, of the 1929 debacle. Siphoning of the wealth from the improvised with every republican obstruction’s to F.D.R.’s / Eccles ideologies of financial regulation and or laborers productivity wealth distributions.
Social anxiety manifest in fear, insecurity, cultural diversity. Vulnerable to further republican Austerity manipulative forces. Chaos of direction is exhibited to the sovereignties by the populace. Decision will eventually be made, as to how and where to coral the laborers productivity, to ease the means to exploit them, sometime in the future, once again.

This is a first, a lucid reply without name calling or attacks. Now a reply in kind.

Unless you have only been working 4.5 years or less you cannot blame Obama or his policies for your predicament. Place the blame where is belongs however. Your state, Texas is a right to work state which is incomplete. Is should be called right to work (for less). Because you state makes unionism and workers rights more difficult businesses can get by paying workers a substandard wage that is not keeping up with inflation and offering very little in benefits like a 401k or similar retirement plan. I don't know your age but I am willing to bet either your father, or grandfather depending on your age worked their entire career at one or maybe 2 business and retired with a guaranteed pension. Back then workers rights were stronger and Businesses had more ethics than present time.

You want to make Obama and his administration the scapegoat for all your troubles but you turn a blind eye to the real reasons you are in the situation you describe.

I only view Obama and his administration as an add on and not a solution to the problem that has been festering for over 30 years. Nothing will ever change until the people in this country stand up to the greed and corruption going on with big business and our puppet government.

Big business just tries to survive in the blood sucking country. Big business pays for everything. Think about the 50 million taking some type of welfare assistance. Another 25 million suck off the tax dollar tit. It does not leave many producers left. Perry has allowed taxes to increase every year to build a 50 million dollar school in every school district in Texas. What a fool!
Big business accounts for more welfare assistance than the Citizens of this country do.

My brother is the tax manager of a major oil company with 135 accountants in the tax department. The majority of the work is for tax compliance. Pay what we owe and no more!
Try $146 million a quarter.
How is that related to BIG business?
After all those taxes you are upset about you also have multiple tax breaks credits and deductions that joe citizen is not entitled to take or get.
