My insurance went from a $10 co-pay to a $30 co-pay last week! Thanks Obama for the "reduced cost" of Obamacare! I can hardly wait for the tax on my "Cadillac plan".

Agree. It would not surprise me if there was another engineered collapse of the markets around the November time frame. Just like there was in Sept of 08. Nobody still knows where the $587b disappeared to on 15 Sep 08 when there was a run on the money market accounts. The $587b was lost in the matter of a couple of hours.

This talk of the recession being over is complete bullsh!t. The officials are just trying to build confidence again in order to crash the markets a 2nd time.

According to the HHS report withheld until now, after the bill became law, our medical bills will increase, and our premiums will go up. Senior services will be rationed, so all you young people who wanted this for us bear in mind you are are getting any younger. We need to purge the Government in November of any, and all politicians who are not acting in our best interests.

The problem with Obama's policies is sooner or later he will run out of taxpayers money.

Cost? I thought it was going to be free. They told us the savings alone will pay for the additional coverage. And the O'bots beleive them.

The rest of us would say, "I was born at night, just not last night."

Report says Obama's Health care will Cost more

Ricardo Alonso-zaldivar, Associated Press
Apr 23, 2010

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama's health care overhaul law is getting a mixed verdict in the first comprehensive look by neutral experts: More Americans will be covered, but costs are also going up.

Economic experts at the Health and Human Services Department concluded in a report issued Thursday that the health care remake falls short of the president's twin goal of controlling runaway costs, raising projected spending by about 1 percent over 10 years. That increase could get bigger, since Medicare cuts in the law may be unrealistic and unsustainable, the report warned.

It's a worrisome assessment for Democrats.

In particular, concerns about Medicare could become a major political liability in the midterm elections. The report projected that Medicare cuts could drive about 15 percent of hospitals and other institutional providers into the red, "possibly jeopardizing access" to care for seniors.

The report from Medicare's Office of the Actuary carried a disclaimer saying it does not represent the official position of the Obama administration.

The report acknowledged that some of the cost-control measures in the bill — Medicare cuts, a tax on high-cost insurance and a commission to seek ongoing Medicare savings — could help reduce the rate of cost increases beyond 2020. But it held out little hope for progress in the first decade.

"During 2010-2019, however, these effects would be outweighed by the increased costs associated with the expansions of health insurance coverage," wrote Richard S. Foster, Medicare's chief actuary. "Also, the longer-term viability of the Medicare ... reductions is doubtful." Foster's office is responsible for long-range costs estimates.

Blagojevich Defense Team Moves To Subpoena Obama

Apr 22, 2010
Defense Says Obama's Story Is Different From Likely Prosecution Witnesses

CHICAGO (CBS) ― The defense team for deposed Gov. Rod Blagojevich has moved to subpoena President Barack Obama to testify at Blagojevich's corruption trial.

Blagojevich has pleaded not guilty to charges that accuse him of scheming to sell or trade the Senate seat left vacant by Obama's election as president.

The motion filed Thursday says Obama was interviewed for two hours by prosecutors and FBI agents regarding the Blagojevich case, and the defense filed a motion asking for all transcripts, notes and reports from that interview. But the defense never received the documents, the motion said.

Read The Motion

The motion also claims that prosecutors say Blagojevich met a labor union official whom he believed to be in contact with President Obama, and told the official he would appoint a certain candidate to the vacant Senate seat. In exchange, Blagojevich expected to be named secretary of Health and Human Services, the motion says prosecutors claim.

But Obama has said he was "confident that no representatives of mine would have any part of any deals related to this seat," the motion says.

"President Obama has direct knowledge to allegations made in the indictment. In addition, President Obama's public statements contradict other witness statements, specifically those made by labor union official and Senate Candidate B," the motion said.

Obumbler will be gone in 2012, and the Kevorkian H C law isn't implimented until 2014, so a Republican President, and House, and Senate will no doubt take the bill to the S C for Judicial review.

Did you see where 2 State Reps in Illinois want the Illinois National Guard to come keep the peace in 9% of the Chicago neighborhoods that are in turmoil. They just happen to be the area Obumbler was the Neighborhood Rabble Rouser. 113 people have been killed in that area since January. That just happens to be the same amount of killed in Afghanistan, and Iraq combined in the same time period. Some people, black, or white cannot be civilized.

There will be NO STOPPING to the C-O-S-T of HEALTH CONTROL. Doctors will LEAVE their practices, there will be a shortage of doctors EVERYWHERE. There WILL be DEATH PANELS or whatever you want to call them. There will be a TOTAL BREAKDOWN of the Health Control system.

IDIOTS.....this means YOU TOO. Health Control WILL NOT BE FREE, nor AFFORDABLE.

Obama is a COMMUNIST.
