Obamacare is not "FREE" health care

People have finally realized that the word “free” is nowhere to be found in Obamacare’s “ Affordable Health Care Act”. Coverage under President Barack Obama's health care law won't be cheap. A study released Thursday by the nonprofit Kaiser Family Foundation found that government tax credits would lower the sticker price on a benchmark "silver" policy to a little over $190 a month for single people making about $29,000, regardless of their age. For uninsured people who are paying nothing today, this is still a big cost that they're expected to fit into their budgets.

There is just so much negative buzz about Obamacare, it's hard to find the positive stories. Here is a happy look at how the ACA is affecting REAL people who REALLY need it: ***********uwmedicinepulse****/the-affordable-care-act/. Nothing ever comes easily- just give it some time!

Yeah, from what it sounds like...they won't be getting close to those numbers anytime soon. Not unless the penalties start encouraging more uninsured people to join.

Kendall78, if the question you posted was not person sensitive then i would like to post what i found...all subject to correction of course. the KFF report found that 40% of the 18-34 age group and 37% of the 35-54 age group would need to participate according to CBO figures as costs for the A.C.A. Naturally that assumes that the other age groups attain their percentage requirement and all pay their preiums as required. the above information was taken from a Dec. 2013 KFF report.

Let the free speech and message of Liberty continue, even if on on these pages.

At what percentage must the previously uninsured be for Obamacare to be feasible financially?

I assume the uninsured they are looking for are mostly working class people under the age of 40.

fred...with the march 31st deadline approaching, it would not be surprising to see activity increase at the ACA website. looking without buying is still just looking. i am not certain that your claim of what each of the (questionable) 5 million discovered could be construed as accurate. even Judge Judy does not affirm speculation or hearsay. neither do i. lets chat when they sign-up and pay their premiums....i wonder if they happened to also reasearch the projection of the increase in premiums as a result of marketplace fluctuations and the costs of the A.C.A. requirements themselves.

No. Not all politicians lie. Not like that. They also ignored the wishes of the people and allowed Pelosi, Reid and Barry to sway them into voting for something that will get them the boot !

This is not discussion, it's ridiculous. Why can people get away with mentioning different articles and pass it off as meaningful, it's not. I can quote the cat ad and the hat, cause that what Ted Cruz did , but do I somehow rationalize it has to do with the topic Obama care? It doesn't, you're both right what the diff and ask not Ss dd

lying Senators about ObamaCare. Sen. Baucus (D-MT): “That is why one of the central promises of health care reform has been and is: If you like what you have, you can keep it.

BobBarker: you posted..."Another idiotic opinion from another rightwing whacko nutjob." based on a report by "Unite Here": "A national union that represents 300,000 low-wage hospitality workers charges in a new report that Obamacare will slam wages, cut hours, limit access to health insurance and worsen the very “income equality” President Obama says he is campaigning to fix. “Only in Washington could asking the bottom of the middle class to finance health care for the poorest families be seen as reducing inequality,” said the report from Unite Here. “Without smart fixes, the ACA threatens the middle class with higher premiums, loss of hours, and a shift to part-time work and less comprehensive coverage,” said the report, titled, “The Irony of Obamacare: Making Inequality Worse.” your own personal prejudice and whacko is shining through.

People who make it their business to take other people's money without their express permission are thieves. You people who support Obamacare as it jacks up your neighbor's insurance premiums and deductibles, increases taxes to float the "subsidies", and removes their effective doctors & hospitals & medications from their policies of coverage? You are thieves, accomplices in a major national theft ring!

People who want to be in the business of meddling with others' private affairs were once derided as "Busybodies". You Obamacare cheerleaders are "busybodies".
