It's the same bill you just aren't familiar with the politics of Health Care in America as you think you are. The bill should be termed,

Heritage-care and Not Obamacare.

You living in Florida, should not be complaining being that there is a large portion of the residents in Florida that pay no income taxes on a federal level and make no contribution to ACA.

Your citizen in Florida stand only to gain from any measure designed to return tax money to residents, because you don't make a aggregate contribution to the US Treasury.

You and the residents in your state, most being senior citizens enjoying Government Health Care with medicare and their programs should not be in opposition one way or another.

You get a free ride when it's all calculated.

Totally different bill and you know it. It was dreamed up behind closed doors etc. Maybe a similar idea back then but nothing like this mess. Besides we still don't know all thats in it or what the true costs will be.
Why don't Democrats keeps their hands in their own pants and out of everyone elses. Talk about keeping government out of personal lives.!!!! Guess that only counts for what liberals want; they just want someone else to pay for it.

You keep going back to this calculated \ aggregate topic., You know you can take a premise and then generate stats to prove it and it will be factually correct but dumb as a bag of hammers.

Yes states with smaller or retiree populations may use more than contributed in a current year but I'll bet money-wise the larger population Blue states use a lot more money period for there freebies. So I could say that most of the National debt is due to the blue States and the larger populations centers. You know the ones that are going broke.
Now a lot of the larger Companies also have their main offices in said Blue States, and their Employees who probably make more than the 200K number, that Democrats keep screaming about, work there and pay the majority of the taxes you are bragging about.
Truth is most of the wage earners that pay more than they receive are mostly conservative by nature; they just get out voted by sheer numbers in the blue states due to the number of leeches.
Maybe we should see about getting them to move to some of the more conservative red states who think more like them; but the last time one wanted to move the Fed got after them.
So your stupid point about states etc have nothing to do with the federal level.

Where is your proof you wooden headed little liar? A liberal news media has reported it. Four sources deeply involved in the Affordable Care Act tell NBC NEWS that 50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a “cancellation” letter or the equivalent over the next year because their existing policies don’t meet the standards mandated by the new health care law. One expert predicts that number could reach as high as 80 percent. And all say that many of those forced to buy pricier new policies will experience “sticker shock.” Crawl back under your rock woody.

It's a shame the insurance industry can longer peddle those high profit, worthless-to-consumer 'insurance' policies. Their grifting days are over.

In the aggregate the Blue States fund America and should use portions of the funding they give to support themselves, if the Southern States including Florida functioned in the same manner there wouldn't be much to complain about and we would be free of debt as a Nation.

You are taking the common Free Loading Parasite approach to self sufficiency and justifying living off the sacrifices and sweat of your neighbors.

Those people who had policies enacted before March 2010 could have been grandfathered in those policies provide the Insurance companies continued those services, but the Insurance companies dropped those services and the policy holders to sell them more pricy policies that benefit the Insurance company bottom line, this is a practice that has gone on for 15 years, this is not a new phenomenon for anyone that has purchased insurance in the last 15 years whether in a group or individual policy.

Insurance companies dropping consumers is a losing argument in America it's a common practice and has been for decades as the Insurance companies were fleecing American Consumers.

Some of you have no understanding of the insurance market and it shows in your arguments over this topic.

These arguments presented that believe Insurance Companies are dropping policy holders because of the new ACA law are empty because it's been a standard operating procedure of the Insurance Companies over the last 15 year which has guaranteed their profits.

Those individuals who insist this is because of ACA are the very people who has never purchased insurance and are to embarrassed to say they could not afford insurance because if they had and had a actual claim they would have experienced being dropped by their carrier, denied coverage and definitely would have saw price increases annually whether they had services rendered and paid by their insurance company or not.

There has been no getting around price increases and the threats hovering over your head of being dropped if you had a claim from an illness or medical condition unless you didn't participate in teh Insurance market.

Without Odumbocare, the insurers would not have exercised this mass exodus from policies. As usual, you miss the connection woody. Stop stalking me, you're not my type. I like intelligent men with balls.

Not true, the retires are mostly from those same Blue states and retired here after working and paying taxes all those years. You can thank LBJ for taking the trust and making it part of the budget. They also paid the medicare taxes most of their working years. A lot are still pay taxes every year, its just their wages are lower.

your ego is making you look like almost as big of an ass as your posts do.

Republicans were claiming this was a Government Takeover of Health Care, you fell into that thinking.

the Government can't make the decision for an Insurance Company sell you a certain product the insurance company discontinues.

If their is a regulation that has to be adhered to, all the Government can ensure is those regulations are followed by the players in the market.

That's not a loophole. You want real government take over of health care and that is not what ACA does.

The Insurance companies have been doing these same policy cancellations for 15 years, none of this is new behavior this is consistent.

You know recognizing the standard operating practices of Insurance Companies selling Health Care policies shows that you were not active in the market.

None of this price increasing or policy cancellation is new.

If you took all the retirees out of florida you would be in a far worse condition economically than you are now. The wages in Florida are so low that the typical worker pays no income taxes on a federal level. That changes nothing, Retirees are the direct cause for development in Florida and only adds worth to an other wise worthless region of America. There's no economy in Florida if not for resorts, and those jobs making beds and dumping trash that drives the florida economy is not enough to produce enough revenue to manage that state.

Florida lives off of hotel taxes.
