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.

Well abby , I wont dispute the info but when looking into this "story" every source was of a conservative view point ! So lets just say that maybe omissions were made or certain things were embellished and leave it at that !

$376 million and exceeded the projected worst-case-scenario losses outlined in their loan applications by more than $260 million in 2014. They lost an additional billion dollars in 2015, according to the report.

“Once the co-ops got going in 2014, things went south in a hurry—both in terms of financial losses and enrollment figures that wildly deviated from the co-ops’ projections,” Portman’s statement says. “Despite getting regular reports that the co-ops were hemorrhaging cash, HHS [the Department of Health and Human Services] took no corrective action for over a year.”

the gift that keeps giving. the Doctors and Hospitals as well as those that bother to pay their premiums can easily absorb the abortion that is the ACA. i can't wait to see the behemouth grow and will continue to collapse under it's own weight.

The dozen failed ObamaCare cooperatives have not repaid any of the $1.2 billion in federal loans they received and still owe more than a $1 billion in additional liabilities, according to recent financial statements to be cited Thursday at a congressional hearing.

In prepared remarks for his opening statement at the hearing, Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, chairman of the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, says, “In some states, those losses will be absorbed by other insurance companies—which means, by the policyholders of other insurance companies who have to pay increased premiums.

The report cited in Portman’s statement also claims that from 2014–2015, the administration lent an additional $848 million to the failed cooperatives, as they lost more than $1.4 billion.

It claims the most recent balance sheets provided to the subcommittee show the failed cooperatives owe more than $700 million to doctors and hospitals for plan year 2015.

Your fantasy world must be a nice place pervert troll ! I see youre still in your denial zone ! Yeah we were just about in a severe depression and look for yourself , 99% of economist agree with that assessment ! The rest is your usual mularky except for the debt thing ! No denial here that the debt has increased but paying for Dubya's 2 wars is exspensive !Like I said , we will live with the Bush legacy for years to come !

The trend is bad. Young, healthy people are staying away, despite having to pay big penalties for going uninsured. Last year, a whopping 7.5 million paid the penalty, and millions more weaseled exemptions. More than half the uninsured eligible for ObamaCare chose not to sign up.

ObamaCare is on the ropes. Humana just became the third major insurer — following UnitedHealthcare and Cigna — to report huge losses selling ObamaCare plans. Industry experts say they’re likely to abandon ObamaCare altogether at the end of this year. Also, add Blue Cross Blue Shield to the list of panicked insurers. More bad news: Enrollment figures for 2016 aren’t looking good, with fewer young adults (profitable for insurance companies) signing up than in the past. ObamaCare is in what the insurance industry calls a “death spiral.” The Congressional Budget Office just reported that over the next 10 years, ObamaCare’s entitlements will cost $516 billion more than the law’s taxes and penalties will take in.

So who is paying for it ?

Posted 222 days ago.

Oh so you think that these insurance companies wouldnt raise their prices after having price increases averaging between 15 %-20% a year ? Just imagine what the cost would have been if not for Obamacare !

Troubling signs about the Affordable Care Act and the state of health care in the U.S. have bubbled up in the last few weeks. The administration’s Obamacare enrollment projections for the coming year are down, the projected cost of premiums and out of pocket costs are up, nearly half of the insurance co-ops associated with the program are going out of business, and UnitedHealth Group, the nation’s largest health insurer, said it may withdraw from the government marketplaces in 2017. Hmmm…which party 100% voted for Obamacare without reading it?%

Moderation...the double post was due to my phone not indicating proper transmission of post...therefore i tapped again. it was not intended to reinterate or drive home a point.

Obamacare will be repealed soon and the supreme court will get tarnished soon. Roberts was bought off.
