If you want to play the spelling NAZI, Dum Dum Dum, you should show care to check yours... especially in the very next sentence.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!
By the way I did not comment on your spelling.You did spell parent correctly. I commented on the fact that your sentance made no sense. I just wanted to know how does someone "parent" for insurance? LOL

You really know nothing about the ACA. How strange.
It has nothing to do with poor people. They already have Medicaid.It is for middle class people who fall through a loophole.
As for paying so people "can enjoy health treatments" you are already doing that. Every insurance policy has fees built in to pay for the uninsured. It is estimated that these extra charges amount to about $1000 per year for everybody. You are paying that now and are apparently quite happy to be doing it. Good for you.
You may be happy with that, but other people see that having millions of uninsured people and millions more people who are paying exorbitant amounts for insurance as a problem that increases costs for everybody.
YOU KNOW SO MUCH ABOUT IT, you must be getting a salary to sell it on here so you can get a tax deduction waiver. Is this not your messiah, the dictator's POLITICAL GAME?

You are right, I don't take it but I am sure you do.
If I am confuse oh wise one explain how you parent for insurance. Is this a new Obama program that gives you free insurance if you have a child?

I just correct the misinformation you spew. hink of it as a public service.

I do not get paid, but I will receive a $1500 a month reduction in my insurance premiums beginning in January. That is an extra $18,000 a year in spending money. I am thinking of getting a BMW with the savings.

That is one of the biggest problems with the plan. While it is true that those with preexisting conditions who could not get health insurance and do not qualify for Medicare and/or other government programs will sign up as well as those who lost their employer sponsored insurance because of Obama care will sign up those that are healthy and young will not.
The liberal leaning NYT did an analysis of the law and stated that 2/3 of the people that this was intended for will NOT get coverage.

Why should they? If you are healthy and have no assets there is little incentive to get insurance. If you are sick and have no assets there is no incentive to get insurance. Those that do buy insurance will either see skyrocketing premiums as they have for the last 20 years or the taxpayer will be subsidizing the insurance companies so that insurance stays affordable. After all the government has already through the ACA guaranteed insurance companies a set profit level. The problem is as long as only sick people have insurance the cost will remain high and somebody has to pay the true cost as well as providing a profit for the insurance industry and healthcare industry. This as we know is will be done through increased taxes. As usual our government is treating the symptom and not the disease.

19 hrs ago Obamacare State of the Union: Costs Skyrocketing, Customers Dropped

The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, is rocking the health insurance plans and premiums of Americans nationwide.
WSFA 12 News says Alabama Blue Cross Blue Shield is sending out cancellation letters to its customers and has announced it will have to cancel "the vast majority of its individual plans because they don't comply with the Affordable Care Act: for self-employed or small business insurance customers. "They are incredibly more expensive¬ódouble, sometimes triple, what customers are paying now, and the benefits don't seem to measure up," reported the Alabama news affiliate.

In New Mexico, Presbyterian Health plan customers will see an average 20% increase on its plans because of Obamacare. "Unfortunately, it sounds like almost everyone's wallet will take a hit," reports KOAT-NM.

In California, as many as 500,000 Californians could see their health insurance rates jump. "Not everybody ends up better off, unfortunately, under the Affordable Care Act," said UCLA School of Public Health Director Gerald Kominski.

In Hawaii, the Obamacare website's technical failures have resulted in zero Hawaiians signing up for the program in President Barack Obama's home state.

In Iowa, only five people have enrolled.

In Kentucky, one family's healthcare premiums tripled overnight because of Obamacare.

CBS News says the Obamacare launch has been "nothing short of disastrous."

A recent New York Times analysis found that the healthcare law "will leave out two-thirds of the poor blacks and single mothers and more than half of the low-wage workers who do not have insurance, the very kinds of people that the program was intended to help."

Obamacare will cost American taxpayers $2.6 trillion over the next 10 years, according to analysis by the U.S. Senate Budget Committee.

Point taken but wht would'nt they just expand medicaid for the uninsured instead of creating this monstrosity?
