This insurance reform is going to keep the unemployed jobless and make those that are employed quit their jobs and sit on their asses too. Why would you work when you can get free housing(section 8) free food ( food stamps) free childcare, free tuition for college, and now free health insurance! God bless America! You're an idiot to work and pay for everyone else's free way of living!! I've worked at the same corporation for 22 years and I'm college educated. I cannot afford to take the only plan that offers doctor visit copays and prescription copays, I had to go to the next best plan, which is still costing me over 200$ a month. I have to pay for all of my doctor visits and prescriptions as though I don't have insurance. What the hell is the sense in having insurance if you got to pay up front?? I will never go to the doctor or will I be able to take my kids when they are sick because of this ridiculousness! But the 45 year old dipshit living in his mama's basement that sit around drinking beer and smoking pot all day while I'm at work can go have that back surgery for free that he's been needing! What's wrong with this picture people?

Dear brothers and sisters, join the revolution on may 22nd! We are taking back this country and returning it to its former glory! Death to the war pigs that spread their hate like a plague, and the worthless politicians that bicker and argue like school children while getting nothing done, playing with peoples lives like its chess! Death to the corporations that seek to enslave you! 86 people own half of the worlds wealth (110 trillion), The NSA spying was unconstitutional, and this socialist health program forcing people (with a job) to get health insurance or you get fined every year you don't have it!!!

Before obamacare, anybody could get affordable health insurance. You could get a private policy through Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield. We already had the solution for all the poor people, and that's Medicaid and the Medicaid Managed Care Organizations like Wellcare and Coventry Cares. All these people signing up are getting their policies paid for. Don't let the obamites fool you. This system is going to cave in.....just wait and see.

Is there a like button??? Of course it's going to cave, who is going to pay for l these unemployed people that are now covered for FREE, while the employed's health insurance coverage drops dramatically?? Taxpayers, my friends!!! The 36 year old that's never worked a day in his life can go
have that knee surgery he's been needing so he can go play basketball with all his boys, but the 42 year old
single mother of 3 who has carried insurance on herself and her children her entire career can't cough up the $1500 its going to take to remove the cancerous mole from her back because she hasn't met her 2500$ deductible yet. Not to mention,$230 is coming out of her check to cover the premium for this 'wonderful' insurance that doesn't cover anything! This system is beyond flawed, to say the least!
