What is not being considered in this FASCIST takeover of the Health-Care System is that HEALTH CARE Money that ends up in the hand of the Government CAN GO ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD.

Look at the TRILLIONS that US Citizens put in the Social Security Program. Now it is not there.

NOPE, its been re-directed to some other purpose.

It is NOT a HEALTHCARE law.
It is a health INSURANCE law.
And there is NOTHING affordable about it unless you have extra cash to BUY the INSURANCE OR you are poor enough to have the TAXPAYERS supplement your PURCHASE of INSURANCE.
There is NO GUARANTEE that doctors and hospitals won't be stiffed for the bill. Lower premiums mean HIGHER DEDUCTIBLES. Someone who doesn't want to pay $2,000 deductible (or doesn't have it) isn't going to pay the bill when their health INSURANCE doesn't pay.
That sums it up. The Affordable CARE Act aka Obama Care is a health INSURANCE bill/law.

What do premiums, deductibles, co pays, taxes & fines have to do with physical CARE.

Too many problems with health CARE COSTS. This law is a WHO will pay for it rather than HOW MUCH and WHAT is being paid for law.

Now here is the voice of a reasonable Democrat, who makes my case for me.
http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/democrati...
U.S. Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia broke ranks with fellow Democrats and said he’d support a stopgap spending plan that delays the individual mandate in President Barack Obama’s health-care law.
“There’s no way I could not vote for it,” Manchin said at a Bloomberg Government breakfast today.“It’s very reasonable and sensible.”[...]
“Don’t put the mandate on the American public right now,” Manchin said.“Give them at least a year. If you know you couldn’t bring the corporate sector, you gave them a year, don’t you think it’d be fair?”
----------
The LOGIC is impeccable for delaying the mandate----Corporate America gets a pass from Obama BUT the aveerage citizen does not???
DELAY THE MANDATE & Fund the Government.
That's not all the republicans want buddy. EPA regulations gutted / Keystone / oil drilling in protected wildlife areas / the list goes on. You guys don't want to negotiate - you want all or nothing! I wouldn't talk to azzholes like that either!

Exactly, Clinton's "welfare reform" placed welfare recipients on SSD and SSI during his tenure. They never paid in but receive bennies from SS. Foreigners with a work history of 10 Years in their home countries only have to work here 18 months and they qualify for life even if they return to their homelands. That is why SS insists on direct deposit.

Certainly a businesses are entitled to make profits.
The problem I have is the government MANDATING that people give their money to a particular industry.
It would be like if the government MANDATED that people purchase computers and make payments to an internet service company on a monthly basis.
People have the right to choose how and when to spend their resources.
The government's ability to tax is totally different than mandating the purchase of products/services from a particular industry/group.
This is where the crux of the case is...
when is it legitimate for the gov't to intervene in your affairs

What difference is there between a computer and internet service and Health care coverage.

A)(my understanding\opinion) It is legit for the gov't to intervene and mandate a solution to a problem when.
Failure to act endangers the security, health, or the gov't solvency.
OR..Failure to act imposes a financial burden on taxpayers

B) Heath care coverage v. computer and internet service comparison.
Someone with no Health care coverage imposes his bills on the citizens, business's and gov't agencies that play by the rules. Those freeloaders bloat the cost of your coverage. They cause hospitals ect. to raise prices ...which in turn stresses Gov't programs , Medicaid ..Medicare...Someone not connected to the internet...no effect
Someone without heath care coverage stresses the finances of the gov't the increases in the cost of "entitlements" is a force that threatens tax increases\ budget cut... if you have no internet no effect

Anyone receiving healthcare through their employer is exempt. Employers usually stick their employees with one plan. Where's the teabagging con freedom for choice? The ACA takes care of that. Any of those employees can opt-out and go the ACA route for a better deal, if they find one tailored to their individual needs.
Yeah,, I just got the notice on my option to waive insurance a go with the UACA. Seems you would not get the employers contribution and the premiums are not considered pre-tax like the employer plan. Good deal there,,,,, what next charging anything spent on you for the UACA as income like the energy initiative.

Once again, how has the ACA helped make healthcare better in the US? Private enterprise has already made us a leader in medical technology. All those medical device manufacturers aren't government owned and operated. In fact, they are getting higher taxation with Odumbocare. The pharm companies are privately owned with stock options. They do the research on medications and submit them to the FDA for approval, once again, not gubmint. So, I ask you, what is the "improvement" to healthcare? Making it more affordable, not bloody likely. With deductibles, doctor and facility acceptance, and waiting lists and evaluations, what is the pro. Ahhhhh yes, investors racking it in through investments in the insurance companies. Got it. The problem has never been the quality of helathcare in this country, it's always been AFFORDABILITY. Obamacare has done NOTHING to change that for the better for the working class.

And this is exactly why they should've focused on COSTs and not WHO will pay. The ACA aka Obama Care is a WHO is going to pay for it bill/law and not a HOW MUCH or WHAT you are paying for.

The corporate INSURANCE industry has already been acting as a pseudo government getting most of what they want from patients and providers. The patients and providers seem to get less out the INSURANCE industry than they get out of them. At the same time the patients or providers seem to have no problem making INSURANCE which is voluntary & optional the preferred form of payment. It is not mandatory that health CARE be paid with INSURANCE.

Corporate health CARE providers also contribute with production line CYA medicine. Patients also add to US health CARE costs by expecting their INSURANCE to cover routine maintenance including the sniffles and boo boos. But that's the problem, someone else is paying for their problems and services.

Looks like your employer screwed you. How is it that Walgreens IS covering their contributions up to the level of their current insurance plan? If an employee chooses an ACA plan that costs less, Walgreens is paying it and saving money. While if it's more, the employees know that they'll pick up the difference.

All insurance plans are not created equal. It's not all about $'s, it's also about what afflictions are covered. Why do you continue this blatant exhaltation of an obviously flawed law, crap. Is it something in the water over there?
