I guess you haven't heard. There will still be at least 20 million uninsured with the implementation of obamacare. You should do a little research before you post next time.

The affordable health care act will be affordable to those that won't buy it. Immigration 'reform', again we will provide for illegals, encourage more to come here and pretend we want to secure the border. The exact same thing we've done for the past 20 years. We have to wind down in Afghanistan so we can get into Syria and Iran. The economy is back for everyone with a stock portfolio, not necessarily for those that spend their money on clothes, food and gas. I will agree that congressmen and federal employees are doing great, salaries are up and work loads are down. The IRS employees getting $70,000,000 in bonuses for doing such a great job is the leading indicator of the wonderful progressive morning.

It'll be affordable for those being gouged by employers too lazy to shop around for the best rates and deductables for their employees. The exchanges will allow them to drop their employers plan and sign-up with one tailored to their needs. It will be a god-send for those going without any coverages, who wish they were being gouged by an employer.

It will suck for those that get cut back to 30 hours a week so their employer doesn't have to provide insurance any longer.

It will suck for those employees and employers who have to pay more for reduced coverage. Even the progressive mathematicians are struggling with the spin of adding 30 million more people to the system and how to tell you your costs will go DOWN.

It will suck for those that still can't afford insurance and now have to pay a fine, I mean a tax, and still use the ER.

We've all seen our health insurance costs drop, well OK, not drop, well actually go way up. But that's beside the point. So we have to pay 30-50% more, it will be worth it. We just have to trust the federal government to take care of the taxpayers.

Tell us again how those people who don't want or can't afford insurance will magically buy it now. They must buy it you say? If they don't, they will be 'taxed'$62.50 a month and the magic elves will then pick up their tab.
Agreed, we ARE underspending. MUCH more spending was necessary to really stimulate the economy and push us in the right direction, and that wasn't done.

I don't support the mandate, FWIW, but making insurance more afforadable and widely used will save us money in the long run. Unless you think those 'magic elves' pick up the tab when uninsured people go to the emergency room?

It sucks that corporate America plays games with employees' lives, I agree.

Adding more people, especially those who are young and not using insurance, will indeed help control costs. Are you a moron, or just a programmed Rightie droid?

More of a realist. Health insurance costs are going up, that is a fact. Those people that don't want or can't afford health insurance won't buy it whether you fine them or not. Adding a massive bureaucracy into the mix and expecting it to save money is, well, it's progressive. If more government spending is saving the economy, as you suggest, why not just have the federal government pay everyone's health insurance bill, we can save a fortune.

Thirty million will still not have the health care they were promised. The other thirty million can't afford it just like the pre-existing patients. Only 10% could afford the presidents ploy to hand this boondoggle around the necks of America.

The $2500 extra a year will make it where the middle class can no afford it and the poor will get it for free.

Ah, that imaginary massive bureaucracy. Takes a few people to roll it out, therefore it's a bureaucracy, therefore it's bad. What about the plethora of insurance companies conspiring with corporate medicine and Big Pharma to keep costs high? That's the REAL reason health costs are so high. They cheat the government, take money out of your and my wallets...shouldn't you be condemning THAT?

I do agree the Feds should pay everyone's health care bill, if by that you mean single payer. Of course it's not that simple, it would be a health PLAN you paid into, which operated at different care levels, and which had deductables, but yes, that's very much what I want. That WOULD save money, serious money.

Idiot. Most of the middle class will keep the work-based plans they ALREADY have. Obamacare is all about insuring the UNinsured, not the already-insured.

Please, tell me you're not this stupid?
