I talked with my Ins. agent this morning. The best choice for me was to go off OC and just go through the insurer. I didnt qualify for subsidies. I didnt expect to either. Anyone who owns a business is basically not gonna get a subsidy as they go by gross income meaning there is nothing you can deduct including the cost of goods sold.
The policies are a little cheaper off the exchange but not much. I did find out that some preventative is free, but not all. The only thing it covers for a male is a colonoscopy, but if that colonoscopy turns into a procedure its not covered. IOW if they find polops and remove them it goes from a free colonoscopy to a 5-8 thousand dollar procedure that goes toward your deductible.
No free doctor visits, no copays. I pay 100% until the deductible is met.$10,400 OOP costs.
I called the clinic to schedule an appointment for my physical they are booked until 2015. I can get in to see a PA in April or May, but i have to find out if they are in the network before I can even do that.
My agent said she had 200 group plans, and about 40 of them have called to cancel the insurance at the end of Dec. for their employees because they cant afford the policies.
When I talked with the hospital about appointments they were very little help as to whether or not the physical or any of the people I saw would be covered. They know very little about whats going on with the ACA and seemed to be about as confused about things as I was. They basically said schedule the appointment see the doctor or PA and turn it into insurance and see what they say. In other words 'punt'.........
I never thought it possible because of the type of person I am, but I am beginning to see and feel the hatred some people have for Bush that I now am beginning to develop for Obama.
It's easy to feel that way about Obama and his regime.

Far more worthy than dwelling on selfies. Significant thoughts.
His actions were miles above the joke of a man in our white house. I can't even begin to imagine how easy it would have been for Mandela to take a very different path and yet he proved to the world no matter how hard it is we can do better. He lived it. I for the life of me can't understand how now after years of seeing Obama knows how to speak but his words mean nothing why everyone doesn't speak out against this. I don't dwell on it Catcher its just sad to see this man is my President and to many people he is the United States of America. I've seen children in my church that better judgment.

<quoted text>Exactly, Catcher and don't you see that people are getting none of these things under Obama. He has not helped people get jobs, a method for getting all of those things. One of these days the money is going to run out and all those people will be without bread and water and salt and a roof over their heads and where will they be? You and I will try to help but it won't be enough. Jobs is the only answer and I haven't seen Obama do a thing about that. If I'm wrong clue me in and the fact that stocks are up is NOT the answer.
This might be one of the rare times I agree with Willie. I really don't think a President can do much on the economy. Imo the best he/she can do is set a good tone and find a balance. Never seen things more off balance and a President that is so driven by being a partisan that like in the sequestration and recent shutdown he does all he can to inflict pain as much as possible no matter what. So off balance that he says outright we will go around Congress cause I know best with ex orders. So off balance that often he speaks without all facts in hands to local issues that don't even concern the executive branch and takes a bad situation and makes it so much worse.

Thought for the day. New York is advertising for businesses to come there, offering ten years without taxes if they do so. Why can't democrats in general understand that the path to a better economy is lower taxes. More businesses = more workers = more taxes. It's so simple.

Why were the nations flags at half staff for Mandela? He was the President of South Africa, no?
Executive order by President Obama. American presidents have ordered flags lowered in honor of foreign citizens in the past. Clinton issued the same order when Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated in the 90s, and Lyndon Johnson, did it when Winston Churchill died in 1965. George W. lowered American flags in honor of Pope John Paul II, in 2005.

Did you see the interpreter for the deaf during Obama's speech? I don't know sign language but it looked goofy even to me.
I thought he was telling Obama to either bunt or steal second base.

Barack Obama was never a terrorist ..... ever so he would skip the 27 years in prison. Nelson Mandela went to prison for treason and terrorist activities. Obama has never been guilty of either.

<quoted text>Why did big government George W fly down with Barry O on Air Force One to the.Nelson Mandela funeral, while ole' Jimmy and Billy Boy had to find their own way down? Things that make you go Hmmmm....
One of the things I'm particularly fond of in this country is the civility we witness every 4 or 8 years when power is respectfully handed from one president to another, from one party to another, from one man to another. GW has gone to great lengths to not be critical of Obama and/or his policies even under the unrelenting blame Obama has assigned him the last five years. I admire that and if President Obama offered him and his wife a ride to South Africaon AF1 and GW graciously accepted, I admire that too. As far as Carter and Clinton arranging their own transportation, I wouldn't read too much into that. Those two do what they damn well want to do and it's unlikely anyones feelings were hurt. Besides, having four out of five of our living presidents on the same flight probably isn't recommended.
So anyway, their travel arrangments didn't make me go "Hmmm", shrug- my "Hmmm' is still tied up on why John Roberts from SCOTUS ruled the way he did on the ACA....but that's a whole separate issue.

Those weren't standing ovations. They thought his yakkin' was finally
over so they could go get something to eat. He just wouldn't put a cork in it.

<quoted text>Maybe but I don't believe money will solve everything. If there are not enough drs and hospitals, not to mention the younger demographic to make the ACA work, plus the sticker shocks that millions are now experiencing and that millions more will experience next year, the population will demand changes.

Already the tide is turning against this ill-prepared law, so much so that the mid-term elections are favoring Republican control of both houses. Yes November is a long way off, but the issues that matter most to those that usually don't care all that much about the day to day operations in Washington, are long-term effects. And that translates to changes at the polling booths.

Latest polls show 50% don't like this law, 34% are OK with it and 16% unsure. Not good for barry, especially when that 50% will likely go up substantially next year.
I see two options and two options only, to keep it or trash it.

Trashing it (repealing it) means flushing almost a billion down the drain. Not to mention the humiliation and ridicule the history books would invoke. Wanna be the one to pull that handle?

Keeping it, means it will have to be overhauled which, imo, the GOP will begin doing after they regain power and after their candidate is elected. Then they will, wait for it.......... take credit for it.

Oh I'd settle for option 2. I guess there are some good aspects to the bill, they just need to be reformed.

As for the humiliation & ridicule, that's just too bad. If barry
hadn't been in such a rush to ram it thru, it had the potential for being a 5-star winner. He brings any embarassment on himself and his regime.

The GOP will likely only take credit for the reformed sections of the bill if/when that takes place. I can't see them trying to own the whole enchilada.

Pretty sure the DOS XX guy says "stay thirsty my friend(s)"
