Evidently, the big supporters of the deceitful Obama care that is not keeping the doctor that one love or the private sector health plan than one loves are the GOP RINOs led by John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Mitch McConnell, Collins and Ayotte who never read the 32,000 pages of Obama socialistic regulation and wants to appease Obama with a bargain that will keep the disastrous health scam forced on the American people. It is time for the conservative and Tea party to create new political entity that will keep the spineless coward RINOs out with Obama. The Obama care was born with lies and deceit of the American people about their rights to keep their old health care of the private sector and with bribing with tax money liberals to get 50 votes with no GOP support. The Obama care is already scaring away the doctors and hospitals that are not getting paid for their medical treatment with more than nickel and dimes.

Yea, a health care time out. Tell those who have cancer we need a time out so they will have to wait for care. Those who are in the emergency room with life threatening events should just go home while the kind senator figures out if you should be allowed to live.

No problem, Senator. You want a time out; take a time out. The rest of us are signing up and pleased by what we see so far.

Yes. A time-out would be helpful.

Besides the web-site fiasco, someone needs to come out HONESTLY, to explain in what way Obamacare will be AFFORDABLE for EVERYONE (not just the ones getting a subsidy).

Also, there needs to be an explanation about the REQUIREMENT that people be insured for things they DON'T need. Why pay for insurance that covers maternity for a woman who has had a hysterectomy; or free mamograms for a woman who has had a mastectomy; or birth control pills for a woman who wants a baby.

Also, what part of FREE preventive testing is actually PREVENTATIVE?? Like calling lung cancer screening 'preventive testing'?? The PREVENTATIVE part would have been to NOT SMOKE.

All the PREVENTATIVE tests aren't preventative at all!! Checking for breast cancer doesn't PREVENT breast cancer. Checking for any other disease, DOESN'T PREVENT the disease.

Preventative health care costs NOTHING more than EDUCATION: Like, don't smoke, get exercize, eat healthy.

Obamacare is a health care professionals wet dream. All these tests, potential surgeries (needed or not, from false positive 'preventative' test). Dispensing drugs that would not have been necessary had doctors EDUCATED PEOPLE about PREVENTION, rather than practicing RE-ACTIONARY medicine resulting from searching for disease AFTER it IS a disease.(all these tests are NOT REALLY FREE; the cost in the monthly premium, which in no way is cheap)

Obamacare Costs Cancer Survivor Her Healthcare Plan

Edie Littlefield Sundby lives in San Diego, CA, supposedly one of the states with the “good” Obamacare exchanges. As of Dec 31, she has been told that her health plan will end. After searching on Covered California, the cancer survivor still hasn’t found a plan that allows her to obtain the kind of care that she had before Obamacare — care that has literally kept her alive for the past six years.

No. No time out. I want the American people to deal with Obamacare every day of their miserable lives until the next election when we will elect Republicans to reform Healthcare the right way. Was it only a couple weeks ago the Democrats were sitting on top of the world over the Republican Government shutdown? Now they are fretting, and biting their nails over possible problems in the off year election. Life is good.

Up until ten years ago, I was as healthy as one could want to be. Now, I have a heart condition and have had my premiums raised and cancelled so many times in the last ten years I never know what the future holds. It really sucks to no longer be 100%.

For the 40 years or so prior to my condition, I paid insurance premiums and cost the health care system nothing. I was - in busniness terms - pure profit. As soon as I got diagnosed and actually needed some medical care, a sort of satanic beastly attitude was taken by insurance companies with whom I had to deal. I was no more the PURE PROFIT machine I had been for 40 years. Uh, oh.

So, screw you nitwits who are freaking out over the ACA. As soon as the wrinkles are ironed out, I will finally get what I had already paid for but have been denied by those whom took my money for so long. What's that? Medical care and attention without being coerced and made to file bankruptcy after a lifetime of working hard and paying insurance premiums.

Hope you can AFFORD your monthly premiums AND the large deductible.

Good luck with that.

It is nice to have insurance. It is even nicer IF it were affordable.

Iraq doesn't justify Obama's bombing of the American healthcare system.

For the first time in 5 years I have heard people, mostly middle class, and independent talk about how wrong they were, and how far we must all go now to save the country, and return her to the center right. Democrats, especially the President, have lied about everything, and as much as they would like to forgive the lying, it has gone too far. The President is denying, he said we could keep our insurance, and Doctor, and we have him on video saying it 29 times. Either he is crazy, or he thinks we are.
