Sep 23, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Reuters

if you can't afford $2000 a year, less than $200 a month in deductibles for a silver plan chances are you can't afford the silver plan.

However, if $2000 is a financial burden most likely that individual and their family will qualify for medicaid buy in.

Also, out of pocket expense for medical coverage has always been tax deductible when it consumes a specific amount relative to your adjusted gross income.

So chances are you'll get that money out of pocket back when and if that individual files their income taxes.

With current information the cheapest or cheaper plan is the bronze plan but that plan only covers 60% of services AND you must hit a $3200 a year deductible. And there are exclusions to what is covered by insurance payments.
So one or two procedures a non insured patient might have done without could cost them at least 5000 dollars.$5000 is a lot of routine bills that could be paid for stuff needed for daily existence like utilities, car, house repairs, rent, mortgage etc. For many those few thousand dollars a year are the difference between bankruptcy, trashed credit rating, foreclosure, eviction and/or flatout poverty & welfare. I know people who staved off bankruptcy for years by not carrying health insurance.
Even the silver plan has a $2000 a year deductible. Two thousand dollars again are a lot of routine bill payments needed for daily existence.

If as you say a majority oppose the law, Romney would be president today. Romney ran on a platform to repeal the law, and Obama ran on a platform to improve the law.
It's not as if the Election was a close matter. The counting was over before 10:30 pm Eastern Standard Time. And Obama won by a large margin.
59% of the American public wants the law to go into effect, 33% desire the law to be defunded or repealed.
Again the Republicans come up short in the count of Americans. Your politics and choices in the direction of the country have thoroughly been rejected by the majority of citizens in America.
The same lies repeated often will never be true. Romney lost because he wasn't a good candidate, and Øbama had a machine in place to get the job done. The House picked up seats for conservatives and the Senate lost a couple. Your 59% is still a lie and the 33% are the number that say defund it even if it shuts down government. That number increases when asked if they want it defunded if it will not shut down government.

“Yeah, but...”

In a democratic republic 59% is the majority of Americans. What majority do you represent because it's obviously not in America.
That was proven in the 2012 elections. Romney clearly ran on a platform to repeal Obamacare, seems you guys in opposition conveniently forgot the smack down of Romney, it's not as if the election was close and easy to forget.
You, your sense of fair play and justice by the standards established in our society is mildly distorted.

Got any facts to support your ridiculous statements?

According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll:
"Just 42 percent of those polled support the law while 52 percent disapprove. Dig into those numbers and a clear passion gap presents itself; 26 percent strongly support the law while 39 percent strongly oppose it. But, wait, there’s more. Thirty six percent believe the law has made the health care system worse while 19 percent think it’s made it better.(Among independents, just 16 percent think it has made things better while 35 percent say it has made things worse.) Just nine percent of people said that the law had made their family’s health care costs better while 33 percent said it had made them worse.(Among independents, that was 10 percent better/34 percent worse.)"

Other polls show even more disapproval for the law, and for various reasons. Most Americans want to eliminate Obamacare, actually.

There is no chance in defunding it and it not shutting down Government...... Do you think the American people are fools to go for that....... ROFLMAO

59% want the ACA Enacted, there is no support for Republican policies in large numbers, and those politics have been rejected as demonstrated in the 2012 Elections where Romney ran on a platform to Repeal or Replace the ACA.

ROFLMAO.......... Republicans and polls...... you would have thought you guys had enough of those fraud polls you spout after proven liars not more than 11 months ago.

Only poll number regarding Republicans that matter is the 18% approval rating of Republicans in Congress, which is higher than the 13% for Republican in Obama's first Term.

you republicans have some never to flash polls AGAIN........ ROFLMAO

Sound eerily like the false polls claiming Romney was close in contesting President Obama in the 2012 Presidential Campaign......

If there was any truth in the polls you guys claim, Mitt Romney would be president after swearing to repeal ACA if he were President.

The Election was not close........ ROFLMAO

There's no way you could have mistaken the results of the Election as Americans being indecisive and favoring or seeing anything positive in Republican concerns, politics or their agenda to continue delaying, stalling and obstructing Government or the ACA

60% of the population believe the Republicans to be Anti American and the vanguard for the Oligarch.

Miracle on Ice
The "Miracle on Ice" is the name in American popular culture for a medal-round men's ice hockey game during the 1980 Winter Olympics at Lake Placid, New York, on Friday, February 22. The United States team, made up of amateur and collegiate players and led by coach Herb Brooks, defeated the Soviet team, who had won nearly every world championship and Olympic tournament since 1954.

Rocky IV
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rocky_IV
Plot
In 1985, Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren), a highly intimidating 6-foot 5, 261-pound Soviet boxer, arrives in the United States with his wife Ludmilla (Brigitte Nielsen), and a team of trainers from the USSR and Cuba.

To prepare for the fight, Drago uses very high-tech equipment and a team of trainers and doctors monitoring him every moment.
Rocky, on the other hand, throws heavy logs, chops down trees, pulls an overloaded snow sleigh, jogs in heavy snow and treacherous icy conditions and climbs a mountain.

And, I hate Japan.
I am NEVER a Japanese.
I will be an American.

Of course, the U.S. must have Universal-Health-Care only in the U.S. only among Americans.
The U.S. must revive Labor-Unions only in the U.S. only among Americans.
The U.S. must revive antitrust-law only in the U.S. only for Americans.

If your a young adult in good health do not buy into Obama care, the penalty is only 95 dollars for the first year and the premiums you would have paid is out of your reach.don't do it, your throwing away your money.

And for other healthy people It's the same, wait and pay the first few doctor visits out of your own pocket,(much cheaper)than paying your premium. If a condition is diagnosed, pregnantcy, bad back, ect, ect, then and only then sign up for Obama care, the date on your application will be the date of coverage if your accepted .
See the savings your going to have, 95 v what ever your premium
would be.

If you break a leg, arm, or anything
else while not covered, simply do what you do now, go to the emergency room and receive treatment. When the hospital sends you the bill , once again do as you do now......throw it in the trash .

Remember, you cannot be denied because of preconditions.

What a joke........I smell another tax on the middle class.

This system was not thought out very well and will break the back of
the working middleclass.

Wanna bet me.....place your bet and post back in 5 years.
