So it's back to the number of uninsured it was when Obama came into office and you think people are dumb enough to think that is a good thing? WOW!!! You do so I guess that puts you right up there with the intelligence of plant life.

You want to look at polls....look at the one that shows how many American's DO NOT WANT Obamacare.

And yet they still can't tell us how many have actually PAID for their insurance so therefor actually HAVE coverage.

Let us know when the number gets above the number of those that have already had the insurance they already had canceled because of the ACA!!!!

Those junk polices are being shoved back down the throats of the insurance company grifters that pawned them off. Let us know how many idiots actually kept them. LMAO.

The article I read said the uninsured still aren't interested in insurance. This whole debacle is held together by sick older people who have been cancelled by their real insurance companies. Anyone who can read. and has looked at the Government scam is running to an alternate company. The young know Obama excused them from penalty so they aren't interested in the government scam either. The Obamascam people are lying in their teeth about how many people are signed up, and they have no numbers on who might have paid. This is probably the dumbest venture any American has ever heard about.

Who is Obama to tell us our policies are junk? Our policy is excellent and we have not once had a problem with them paying their share of a claim even when they owed 100% of the claim. We love our insurance but don't know if we'll be caught in the cancellations that Obama knows would ruin Dems chances in 2014 so he pushed back the cancellations to 2015. He knows what he is selling is crap but then that is what he planned all along. When ACA fails, and it will, then we'll get the real story of what he was after all along.....single payer government controlled insurance. He could have saved a lot of time and money by having the balls to just push that to begin with. Of course he knew it would fail.....just like ACA will. If what he is selling is so much better than why does he have to cancel what we have and fine people for not getting it after they lose the insurance they have and want? Why if it's so great are people not signing up in groves and why are the people not jumping on board with the government's great plan? If it is so great answer one question.....why is it NOT working?

It is working. Turn off fux and rusty limbot. Policies are cancelled, by the INSURERS, because they don't meet the minimum standards of the ACA.....as in junk policies. LMAO.

Oh, please. The information about this scam is everywhere. Even a dolt like yourself can find it without any help from me. Even Democrats are retiring, and running from their Obamascam vote. So funny,

I wouldn't know. We are exempt. I can only go by the stories I hear, and I hear way more bad stories about Obamascam then good ones. We don't have to cover employees, but they have always been so loyal we would hate to see them stuck in limbo so we cover them. The Government has never bothered us. Don't want to make waves. I think you have to employ more people then we do.

Standards that suggest everyone should have to pay for everything even if you have absolutely NO need for it. All that does is raise the cost. It makes NO SENSE AT ALL for someone my age to be paying for birth control, maternity, or anything else that has to do with having a baby. I already did that and it can't possible happen again so why should I have to pay increased cost to cover it under my own policy??? Can you answer that one? My policy is not junk, it covers everything I need and always pays like it is suppose to. I save money NOT paying for junk I don't need and never will need. The fact that I am not paying or being charged for maternity needs hardly makes it a junk policy, in fact, it makes my policy fit my needs and that is all I should pay for......NOT someone else's needs but my needs. It should be personalized to fit the person buying the policy and paying for it. And you and the president can try to tell people that their policies were junk all you want....but people aren't stupid and they know what they have, or had, and if it worked for them or not.

Every single person that did NOT have health care insurance before Obama Care that signs up does lower the rate of uninsured for the original 50 million estimate.

BUT that 50 million number of uninsured Americans will/is is getting bigger by the day with dropped patients & customers. So what is the percentage of UNinsured is Obama Care really helping again?

To top it off a large percentage of Obama Care enrollees are qualifying for Medicaid/Medicare which is government subsidized health care. It is not private market insurance. Actual INSURANCE is still UNaffordable for many.

Obama Care is nothing but a back door into universal health care. If you want an example of how universal health care would be paid for just look at DemocRAT Aguilar's proposal for universal health care in Colorado which includes a 9, repeat NINE percent TAX to pay for it. Is an additional nine percent tax affordable?

What is the vital need of a Health Care insurer in disbursing medical care for their 4 to 20% commission? How is it they assist the physician or patient?

The previously uninsured are still mostly uninsured. They never did think they needed insurance. Even if they needed Insurance isn't it unfortunate that they are too stupid to choose their own, and need Government guidance?

4-20% is the cost of doing business in a FREE MARKET although I must admit the market is rigged because lack of intra state competition. Why have a profit on any service or product then.

The INSURANCE companies have become pseudo or contracted administrators for the providers and patients. BUT the patients don't seem to mind when they get that 300 dollar office visit for free just to renew a prescription. The provider doesn't seem to mind that the for profit insurance company is paying them for less than 5 minutes work.

The problem with Obama Care is that the focus and effort should have stayed strictly on optionS for the UNINSURED and not restructuring medical care and insurance for every single provider, insurer and patient in America.

A one time tax or premium surcharge would've been cheaper and less hassle to provide care for the then UNINSURED.

Maybe you did not understand the question.

I'll try again, this time slower.
