Isn't it terrific that Obama has taken the steps necessary to see that the burden of increased care is transferred from the taxpayer to insurance companies? You should be applauding the Affordable Care Act. Taxpayers will no longer be picking up the tab for those hip replacements, pace makers and electric scooters.

"The Affordable Care Act has the potential to reduce insurance cost growth while improving financial protections. If efforts succeed in slowing annual premium growth by 1 percentage point, by 2020 employers and families together would save $2,161 annually for family coverage, compared with projected premiums at
historical rates of increase."

Something had to be done and it took President Obama to make it a reality. Naturally, premiums are going to continue to increase but, under the Affordable Care Act, we will not see the huge leaps that we have experienced in the past.

FACT: "Total premiums for family coverage increased 50 percent across states and employee annual share of premiums increased by 63 percent from 2003 to 2010. If premium trends continue at the rate prior to enactment of the Affordable Care Act, the average premium for family coverage will rise 72 percent by 2020, to nearly $24,000."

Those receiving welfare should understand that they are receiving welfare and should beg politely for whatever crumbs the producers decide to give them.
They are not entitled to the same treatment as paying customers.
A large red "W" on their foreheads would be appropriate if they want the goodies without paying.
And people like you should have a large red "C" on your head for "cretin".

What happens when people accustomed to "free" medical care are required to pay now that they have insurance?
Will welfare pay the deductibles and copays?
Once again, under the Affordable Care Act, "no health plan can apply a deductible or any cost-sharing for certain preventive health services." That includes you.

WASHINGTON (AP)— A little more than 24 hours after an IT contractor shot dozen workers at the Washington Navy Yard, the company's CEO told the Navy secretary he had the experience to help improve military security.

The email from The Experts chief Thomas Hoshko, which included descriptions of his background and expertise, stunned some Navy leaders in the wake of the shootings Monday that left 13 people dead, including the gunman, former Navy reservist Aaron Alexis.

The correspondence also fueled concern about what defense officials believe may have been failures by the company to alert the military about Alexis' apparent mental health problems.

In the email, which The Associated Press obtained, Hoshko said he was "dramatically" affected by the shootings and wrote that "my heart and prayers go out to the families and friends of those innocent victims."

But the email quickly moves on, with Hoshko laying out his work experience and offering his services. He wrote that he was "confident that I can provide valuable input and solutions to the process that will provide better security for the military, contractors and civilians."

Navy officials confirmed that email was sent to Secretary Ray Mabus. They declined to characterize its contents.

Florida-based The Experts declined comment.

Revelation of the email comes as the Navy and the Defense Department review Alexis' Navy service history, the Pentagon's security clearance procedures, safety at defense installations around the world and the responsibilities that contractors have in reviewing their workers and notifying the military about potential problems...."

Little Red Riding Hood:
Little Red Riding Hood is skipping down the road when she sees the Big Bad Wolf crounched down behind a log.
"My what big eyes you have, Mr. Wolf," says Little Red Riding Hood.
The surprised Wolf jumps up and runs away!
Farther down the road, Little Red Riding Hood sees the Wolf again-this-time he is crounched behind a tree stump.
"My what big ears you have Mr. Wolf," says Little Red Riding Hood.
Again the foiled Wolf jumps up and runs away!
About two miles down the road, Little Red Riding Hood sees the Wolf again, this time crounched down behind a road sign.
"My what big teeth you have Mr. Wolf," taunts Little Red Riding Hood.
With that, the Big Bad Wolf jumps up and screams, "Will you get lost?
I'm trying to take a sh*t.
