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.

They like to decide how much of anything someone "needs" and if its more than they have, its too much. That is unless the party is question sings from the socialist hymnal like Soros, Algore Michael Jabba the hut Moore etc.

You see Absolem there is a jealousy that is at the heart of the left wing socialists that frequent this place. They want other people to do what they claim needs done.

Republicans in Congress are moving toward a plan to use a special budgetary process to repeal ObamaCare, after the Supreme Court ruled for a second time to uphold the controversial law.

Of course I was being facetious. Politics should have nothing to do with Supreme Court decisions.

But it obviously does. This case follows the pattern of many others. Republican appointees vote the Republican Party line and Democratic appointees vote the Democratic Party line.

In case after case, the courts don’t decide on the basis of right and wrong. They decide on the basis of party affiliation. That makes them political tools, and their opinions should be judged in that light.

BTW: Scalia follows the party line as much as anybody. Judge his dissent accordingly

Scalia criticized the court's interpretation, which he said "means nullifying the term 'by the State' not just once, but again and again."

He called the decision "interpretive jiggery-pokery," a "defense of the indefensible" and "pure applesauce."

And he wrote about the "somersaults of statutory interpretation" the court performed and said that "words no longer have meaning if an Exchange that is not established by a State is 'established by the State.'"

The financial news reports that the biggest winners in the SCOTUS decision are the hospitals.

They will make tons more money.

The biggest losers are the newly insured who think they will get care from a system that is already stretched.

Obamacare is not about health care, it is about insurance.

Harry is pretending again i see. Party line has nothing to do with scotus or at least it shouldnt. Adherence to the constitution and the letter of the law is all that is required. If the law is poorly written, strike it down and make congress rewrite it in accordance with the constitution if they wish to try again. Divining intent is not the job of the scotus

the extra and unexpected word at the end was a tx-exempt freebie and not required to be reported as the value falls well below the 1/100 cent valuse of most printed coupons.
