Obamacare is a snowjob, pure and simple.
And, yet, even most Republicans seem to like it...

"Overall, 73 percent of people who bought health plans and 87 percent of those who signed up for Medicaid said they were somewhat or very satisfied with their new health insurance. Seventy-four percent of newly insured Republicans liked their plans. Even 77 percent of people who had insurance before - including members of the much-publicized group whose plans got canceled last year - were happy with their new coverage."

Of course, people covered by employer-sponsored plans has been dropping for years. And the costs have been rising. That's why we needed something like Obamacare --- because more and more folks did not have health insurance.
Here's an article from 2010, describing the situation before Obamacare:
"The percentage of Americans younger than 65 who receive health insurance through their employer has fallen below 60% not only because of high unemployment. It's also because many of those who remained on the job saw their coverage eliminated or reduced, or dropped it themselves because their plan became too expensive."
"In 2009, 58.9% of Americans younger than 65 received health coverage through their employers -- down nearly 10 percentage points since the start of the decade and down three points since the previous year, according to an Economic Policy Institute report issued Nov. 16."
"The CDC said 40 million working-age adults -- 21.1% of that population -- were without insurance in 2009, up 2.9 million in a year."

Our healthcare system is broken, and the Republicans have done nothing to fix it. Obamacare is the same plan originally proposed by the Heritage Foundation, and implemented by Mitt Romney in Massachusetts. It's not the plan I would have preferred, but at least it attempts to deal with the problem.
Isn't it amazing how the right can propose this plan, force its implementation when the President wanted to do far more, and then blame him for the plan they created? I guess all it takes is gullible rubes like Indy and Taliban Ray for them to get away with it.

Not really. All it takes is your typical uninformed voter like yourself to not realize not one Republican voted for Commie Care, and then want to blame the problems with it on Republicans that once again, never voted for it.

Poor, poor gullible Ray. Never seen the numbers but believes everything the Boss Man tells him about why he couldn't help but screw you over. Aye carumba.
Nope, it's happening all over our state. In fact, I was discussing this issue with my nephew who stopped over for a visit tonight. He also works for a small company and his employee contributions are out of the world. His employer too cannot keep up with the steep increasing premium costs. They are burdening their employees with much of the increases.

He is discussing this serious issue with his new wife that secured a new job. He may have to drop his coverage to go on hers depending how the numbers work out.

It's just a real shame this Communist took over the White House and is placing all these problems on the American people when he could have left a sleeping dog lie. Before DumBama and Democrats leadership in both houses, we were able to figure out problems on our own.

We don't need a government that runs our businesses and our lives. That's not what our founders intent was.

The Senate originated ObamaCare by "trashing the whole bill" House Resolution (H.R.) 3590, titled the Service Members Home Ownership Tax Act of 2009. H.R. 3590 didn't regulate health insurance, and this bill granted tax credits to service members seeking their first homes and increased corporate estimated taxes for certain companies by 0.5%. It's unclear why the Senate picked H.R. 3590 to "amend" over other possible House bills. But surely one reason was because H.R. 3590, which would increase corporate estimated taxes, was a House bill for raising revenue.

The Senate's "amendment" on H.R. 3590 was a complete replacement of H.R. 3590's title and text with ObamaCare.

They didn't need to read it , they trashed the one the House approved and replaced the whole bill for Obamacare. not ONE Republican voted for it. The Democrats did it sleezy just like the sleezy no good people they are. How can they ever be trusted again? They try to keep this information hidden from the people and have done a good job of hiding it. An 8 page bill approved by the House was trashed for Obamacare's 2000 plus pages.

And who will we blame the success on? When it turns out that most folks like being able to purchase their own insurance, and not be dependent upon their employer?

Some were stuck in jobs they didn't want, but they needed the health insurance.(Especially those with pre-existing conditions. Many older workers have some kind of pre-existing condition. Getting insurance outside of your employer in that case is too expensive for most folks. That limits your ability to change jobs. Knowing that you are diabetic, I would think you might have had to dealt with this at some point.)

COBRA was the Reagan era solution to this problem. It allowed you to continue coverage in between jobs, but the individual rates were sky high versus the group plans. It was also limited to 18 months.

"Only 10% of Americans eligible for COBRA insurance in 2006 used it, many because they were unable to afford to pay the full premium after their job loss. While some employers may voluntarily help subsidize or fully cover the cost of COBRA insurance as part of a termination or exit package, it is more common for the ex-employee to cover the entire cost."
