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.

"And NO he did not call me stupid ! I voted correctly !" LOL

I wish Joseph Stalin was still arrive so he could join in about the ultimate disposition of those that profess ultimate 'reward' for having supported the causes they believed in. LOL (again)

That is a reference to calling you stupid.

Since you are unsure who Gruber is, I did a search for you: Jonathan Holmes Gruber is an American professor of economics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he has taught since 1992. He is also the director of the Health Care Program at the National Bureau of Economic Research, where he is a research associate. An associate editor of both the Journal of Public Economics and the Journal of Health Economics, Gruber has been heavily involved in crafting public health policy.

He was a key architect of both the 2006 Massachusetts health care reform, sometimes referred to as "Romneycare", and the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, sometimes referred to as the "ACA" and "Obamacare".[1] He became the focus of a media and political firestorm in late 2014 when videos surfaced in which he made controversial statements about the legislative process, marketing strategies and public perception surrounding the passage of the ACA. That is

"screwed the pooch"? That's an old Fred Oneill phrase! Can we get a "jumped the shark" out of you for old time's sake?

With Obama remaining as the most powerful man on Earth for (at least) two more years, being bruised politically and willfully running roughshod over the US Constitution, you can't swear that "when the wheel turns I'll be there"...a bit more than I can.

I'll tell you what, though. I CAN quarentee that we ARE about to move into interesting times.

Don't worry about Mary Landrieu, she can always go back to selling Real Estate.

It pays better then being a community organizer.

Mary Landrieu bites the dust in Louisiana senatorial runoff election!

How's that "Louisiana Purchase" involving her support of ObamaCare's passage working out for her?

I'll wait for ohwiseone's call as to whether she lost by "a landslide". LOL

Senator Schumer's admission that the big problem with Obamamcare is that they passed a bill that did not help their voting block so that is why they lost big in the midterms.

So according to Chuck, Obamacare was about getting votes and keeping their job not about helping people. Well, he was honest.

Even Deep Throat Nancy Pelosi couldn't swallow that one.

"GOP shut out of Dem-only Obamacare briefing" 10/22/13 5:46 PM EDT

“Far too much information about Obamacare’s rollout is being concealed from the public,” said Brendan Buck, a spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner, who chided Democrats for not including Republicans."

I don't think Boehner may have known about the three videos of Obama's HCR strategist Jonathan Gruber having called the American people (voters) "stupid", at that time. Now, we all know.

My deductibles went up dramatically. Some of my medications that were covered are no longer covered at the same level. My heart specialist is now out of network.

BTW - If you don't believe the story that I posted from Facebook, that puts you in league with ON-MY-WAY-OUT Harry Reid. He thinks they're all liars to that have been very negatively affected by the financials of ObummerCare.

"compromised"? How about, had nothing to do with? When you are completely shut out of the creation of legislation, by an unbending Democratic majority, they don't need your compromises. They just steamroll their way through. Which is what they did.

Why does it matter to you one way or another, ohwiseone? I thought you and your ilk was busting with pride over the completely unilateral creation of ObummerCare.

(CONT) "But Bob Beckle & his ilk sit & mock people like me because the sham that is Obamacare helps "underpriviledged". Huh - illegals & poor people already had access to free health care. Now, we're paying for more illegals & welfare recipients to get better health care for nothing. And people like my husband & I, who own our own business, are going to go bankrupt if I get sick again. Then again, maybe that's for the best. People on welfare have a better standard of living thanks to that *******."

THAT, FOLKS, SAYS ENOUGH ABOUT OBAMACARE!!

ohwiseone - interesting reading found on my Facebook page.

"I'm a stage 3C breast cancer survivor - 3 years out. I lost my excellent insurance to High Highness' "affordable" health care. We will now pay 3 times as much for less than 1/3 the benefits and a TWENTY THOUSAND DOLLAR deductible. So, insurance pays for nothing until after we've paid $20,000 - per year. Heaven forbid I get sick December 3rd - if I'm not out of the hospital before the New Year, we have to pay $40,000. To say I hate that man is an understatement."

CAUTION, BERIGHT! If you show ohwiseone from where "you got your info", his next standard tactic is to squeal like a pig about not "using your own words".

Why are more than 60% of Americans against Obamacare? And why did so many Democrats run away from it during the last election?

Why did all the Democrats vote for Obamacare before reading the legislation?

Why did at least 2 prominent Democrats ask for bribes before agreeing to vote for it?
