The vast majority of people signing up for this are people who qualify for Medicaid and not those who will actually be paying for their healthcare. This is a disaster waiting to happen. Who's going to pay for it? You like the health insurance you have now? Did you know you will be penalized starting in 2014 if you don't sign up for Obamacare? Wait and see........

If you don't have a type of health ins, yes you'll be penalized. It's like 90something dollars if you don't have any in 2014 & then up to 600something if you don't have it in 2015...:/

Should be illegal for Obama to force people to sign up for his socialized medicine. And that exactly what he wants to do. He needs working people to sign up to pay for his POS plan.

Lets all thank those Obama voters.
You all got him in office, now what?
There were signs of all of this but yet some of the fools votes for him a second time around.
Now we are all going to pay. I really don't want to hear 1 single Obama voter to complain because you brought it on yourself.

I didn't vote for that maniac, and I still can't believe he is in his second term. I don't know about you, but I don't know one single person who voted for him, do you? I realize that this region is in no way a good representation of our country as a whole. Still, I just don't believe he won......really won.

Ask Breshear where the money is coming from to pay for this mess after the 100% federal money winds down. He just set Kentucky up for bankruptcy in the future, that will be his legacy.
