LMAO!
Seriously??
What's the point??
I went and "enrolled"...
How does THIS sound to you??

$237 month....
$5300 deductible....

AND I am UNEMPLOYED...ZERO income..
And this is what I call it:

"The NOT so affordable healthcare act!"

What a JOKE!
Now I truly and totally understand EXACTLY why our douchebag government HID ALL THE DETAILS for nearly 2 years from the American public AND the national news!

Yes...our government apparently believes that you "can" get blood from a turnip. Actually...Obamacare's intention all along was to destroy the middle class, but it also has an added benefit of making the poor even poorer.

If you don't work.....why should we pay for you to have better insurance than us?$237 a month is cheaper than what you pay through an employer!

Our insurance rates are going way up and we work full time. People on medicaid can take take free ambulance rides yet I pay $200 an ER visit and $1500 a ride. Ridiculous...if you are laid off you can acquire unemployment, to help you find ANOTHER JOB!

Tired of working and paying more and more......

How are you paying for the insurance with zero income? You were not required to enroll. You might be able to get medicaid if you have less than $1000 in assets. Otherwise our state reps and senators took away the option for coverage for those trying to work their way out of poverty. Wish I could get their insurance.

The whole point is this....for the entire duration of 2 years, Obamacares details have been hidden from the public....and why??
What SERIOUSLY amazes me (and greatly concerns me) is that not even CNN nor FOX news knew NOTHING as well....
It's as if they were making sure we didn't know WTF it was all about!

And as a taxpayer you should ALL be asking this question!

Obamacare is basically the program Senator Blunt revealed as a republican plan back in 2010. However you are right in the secrecy to citizens. I can't help but wonder if media didn't do their job of informing that perhaps they were threatened with loss of revenue from corporate health care.

And even our locally elected representatives are completely out of touch with what people are experiencing. They say taxpayer paid health care is wrong, yet a good part of their health care insurance is funded by us taxpayers.

He really does need to be held accountable for Obamacare....
Who cares about the website! That will he fixed....that's ALL the new talks about...
I'm terribly worried about this economy. It's very very bad. And has been for 10 plus years.

FOX News may not have known all the details but they knew enough to warn us that is would not be good for out Country and have been doing that all along, why do you think Obama hates the FOX news network so bad? Obama's whole agenda since day one hasbeen to ruin our Country, and make us all dependent on the government eventually and at the rate he's going it will happen. Affordabe Care Act? Ayone I know who has had a policy canceled and looked into it will not only be paying more than they are now cause they have to take coverage they don't need but their deductable has gone sky high so they will be paying more out of pocket there too before the insurance kicks in. The whole program is stupid in my opinion, it sure is not affordable. Those of us that knew it warned our friends what a nightmare it would be but nobody wanted to listen, we were being paranoid. I just hope that those of you out there who voted him into office are real happy with what you have now! People are paying up to 30% and more higher rates than before with much large deductables. He is going to make it even harder for the middle class that was doing okay before all this came about, so now we will have more people toughing it financially and those that really can't afford to buy the new policy will also be without Insurance now where before at least they had it! He's always been out to screw the middle class to be blunt. Who would ever have dreamed our country would be in the position it is today, I sure never did. We used to be the Country everyone envied, and now we're going in the direction of all the other countries. When he said he would bring change without really saying what kind of change, that held a red flag for me, I was very wary of what that change would be and now we are seeing it for ourselves, but I'm afraid it may be too late for us to wake up now. Now we see why he didn't want to bargain with Boehner about the health care issue, when they asked him to put it off a year and re-think the plan cause they felt it would be a disaster. Obama wouldn't even discuss it and now we can see why, he just kept saying that it wasn't even an option.
