rethugs have been pushing this tax break crap for years! Unless consumers are allowed to deduct the entire amount of their premiums the proposal will not work.

'Individuals with pre-existing conditions who already have coverage would generally be permitted to shift existing insurance without fear of losing it.'

Same crapola that rugby was pushing.... Your pre-existing condition is covered, if you had previous coverage covering your pre-existing condition. LMFAO

Obamacare: no qualifiers for covering a pre-existing condition.

teabagging cons continue to fail.

Already, doctors are leaving the profession, nurses are losing their jobs, hospitals are cutting other staff. Millions of people worldwide will suffer, because doctors will start having to watch their own pockets instead of taking their staffs to foreign countries for free eye and other reparative surgeries. Charities worldwide will suffer. How is any of this repercussion a positive thing?

The Democrat Communists are fooling their voters. The real idea churning under the surface of Obamacare is hooking all the underground economy into the system for its additional revenue. Actually, the thieves and dopers in the underground economy deserve whatever they get, but disallowing this damaging expansion of Federal bureaucracy is more important than punishing freeloaders of the citizen type. These creepy Commies are going to ask you sex and drug questions and you'll be linked into yearly oversight of your cheating. Ha ha ha. You're stupid.

There go the republicans, trying to eliminate our ability to sue large corporations for damages. No matter how much damage the corporations do, they want immunity, and they are willing to buy congress to get it.

Interesting to note that our waiting with baited breath for this republicant alternative, it has the following:

No overall cost estimates for the bill were available.

Officials said the legislation contains no provision to assure insurance coverage for millions of lower-income Americans who are scheduled under current law to be enrolled in Medicaid, a state-federal health care program for the poor.

Nor are there replacements for several of the requirements the current law imposes on insurance companies, including one that requires them to retain children up to the age of 26 on their parents' coverage plan and another barring lifetime limits on coverage.

Democrat doper Communists are such liars. Conservative elements in the nation have had many ideas about how to fix certain aspects of health care. However, we have had a workable system and no one, no one went without necessary medical care. Now, however, doctors are leaving the profession, nurses are losing their jobs, hospitals are cutting back on other staff. How is that going to help the problems? Communist Democrats are destructive. All they really want is to invade your privacy, hook all of you into a reporting system so they can increase revenue and expand bureaucracy. How is that going to help you?

Walgreens is directing their employees to exchanges, where WALGREENS will match the same amount for employees exchange insurance as they would otherwise have paid through the company run plan. Employees can now tailor coverage to their needs. If more than the original Walgreen's coverage, the employee pays the difference. If less, net savings on insurance costs for Walgreen's.

So tragic you don't understand.

Yep, the conservatives had the idea first. But you morons all suffer from the same teabag frightwing loss of memory.

The original Heritage plan from 1989 had all the features of Obamacare. And Romnycare before that.

As a teabagger, you should know who and what the Heritage Foundation is.

The majority of people do not want obamacare and altho it hasn't even been fully implemented yet, it is already hurting them. But hold on, do not pity those who actually thought obamacare was going to be free and something wonderful because when it does finally hit them, you could say their ignorance really WAS bliss because they never saw it coming.
