it was already new world order-it means wars and massacres everywhere and now it will be new health care order- it will be probably more and more deaths.Why are such people, who are laways damned to failure instead of all lunatic ideas? It would be better if they would have common reason and use brains in their lives.

I do not care, because I am setup under foreign corporations and do not pay much taxes if any to this government. Let the parasites mooch off of Chinese banks, because I am anchored in tax havens.

So, this was a good article and if you all haven't yet read it, then do so.

It says that in private exchanges, employers pay a
set amount to that exchange, and then the retiree or employee then cough up the rest.

The Affordable part ---then--- is for only companies!

The UNaffordable part is for the individual.

AND the individual voted for this...remember??????

Obama and gang were elected TWO TIMES!!! DAH!

So how's it gonna go in 2014? The same stupidity?

And here's another bit of info for all you voters out there:

10% is the schedule! And this is 10% INFLATION
per year.

The national debt is going to be reduced by devaluing it.
BUT the down side is this....ALL things get more expensive and your income pretty much stays the same.

So, are YOU gonna be able to AFFORD ANY health care
in five years...after 50% inflation has attacked it?

Original plan of the Democrats was to allow people to buy into Medicare as an option to buying private insurance. When the bill was in the Senate, Lieberman flipflopped and withdrew his support of this approach. The Democrats increased the federal subsidies to help people afford buy private plans on state exchanges as part of the mandate. The insurance companies said that they had to accept people with preexisiting conditions, they couldn't make premiums affordable unless the healthy bought policies as well. We shall see if everyone buying in actually changes costs in any significant way. In the law is a requirement that insurance plans spend 80% they collect through premiums on actual medical care.

There is a short article in this month's Prevention magazine that offers some useful information.
