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.

if i am not mistaken....who is gonna pony up that steep deductable as well as the unpaid premiums, fines and penalties that your loving democrats are heaping on your unforunate 40 million that are incapable of providing their own means without the nanny-state government pretending to hold them accountable. the unappreciative people that can't even show up on time to get their free cheese(healthcare insurance) are clamoring for the democrats to have pity and relieve them of one of the basic requirements of the law in which to somehow defray some of the enormous costs coming down the pike for americans that do the reponsible thing.... but the democrats already knew it would happen. they are not as economically stupid as their supporters. do the math OWO and get back to me. in the meantime why not help a brother out and share some those nifty things that you recently bragged about "working" for with some of those 40 million....i'll pass you by in the free soup line on my way to

OWO...it is not my "faux". you are barking up the wrong tree there fido. those numbers i quoated come from you and the U.S. Census bureau. so is you "faux" or is you real? as i have said before....it's all good til you gotta pay.

news outlets. but then again the hype is hardly ever worth the cost.

OWO....hate is such a strong word coming from your weak attack. prior to this law, which in fact hurts the middle class,(you know the one your party supposedly champions) most in the middle class were quite satisfied with what they either worked or directly paid for out of pocket. frankly the only ones that were falling down dead in streets were the gang members, hapless victims of crime and drug addicts. as i have stated before the only thing that changed with the law is the flow of money and the loss of benefits that many of the middle-calss and lower income folks enjoyed. based upon 2010 census numbers there were a little over 194 million americans between the working ages of 18 to 64 minus your claim of 40 million which i am certain contains ages outside of my quoted age span that are adversly affected by this law. hopefully you have been bright enough to be following the unfolding calamity that is your parties law. it is there in digital black and white as well as on many varied

Besides your dumbocrats were positively giddy over their handiwork. At the signing they reminded me of a proud child as they peered into the toilet bowl at their first successful poo-poo. Don't you remember that?

OWO..things were working for the Challenger for a short period of time. Perhaps we would all have a better sense of how well the law would work if it were fully implemented. Would you not agree? I mean most everybody enjoys the product until the payment is due.

Latest report: increase in healthcare costs lowest in 50 years, repubs probably say that's bad...

"So simple the republicans cant do it themselves !" comments such as that OWO are what i am referring too. i believe you are capable of more than that. now...the Ithaca post is an example of the lumacy that is occuring. the students have their own insurance outside of the university but are still having to pay for a service that they will not use. it is insane. unfortunately that same logic is found within many of our current social programs. good or bad they are there.

over the past years. “The fee was a slap in the face,” Ferrer said of students already reeling from rising tuition costs. Cornell responded to the backlash on Thursday by acknowledging student discontent but stood firm that the fee is necessary to create a sustainable health model and increase access to health care." the piper must be paid. freebies can only last so long.

from the Ithaca Journal. "ITHACA – A planned health fee charged to Cornell University students caused an uproar among the student community even as the university argues that the fee is needed to pay off debts and forestall cuts in services. More than 100 Cornell students organized outside President David Skorton’s office in Day Hall on Monday in response to the $350 fee to be charged in the fall to students not enrolled in the Cornell Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP). Students camped outside administrative offices and started a social media firestorm under the Twitter hashtag #FightTheFee during the daylong protest Michael Ferrer, a Cornell junior and one of the protest leaders, said the students reacted to what he termed the administration’s lack of transparency. Ferrer said students weren’t properly involved prior to the decision, and that in their announcement Cornell tried to hide the fact that $75 of the fee would be used to pay off debts incurred by the heath service o

your previous post was reasonable and i am impressed. so study it and repeat it. it gives you much more credibility in your points than the same ol' diarrhea that you post. let me think on your points.

administrative costs. … In fact, nine of the co-ops (including CoOportunity Health) reported a MLR [i.e., medical loss ratio; the claims compared to premiums] of 100% or more through September 2014.” The backstory is that leftists think health insurance and health care—and pretty much anything else, for that matter—would be available and affordable if only we took the profits out and let altruistic bureaucrats run the system.

It's simple math folks!!!!!!!

Forbes: When Democrats were ramming Obamacare down Americans’ throats, many of them wanted a “public option” that was supposed to demonstrate just how efficient and affordable government-run health insurance could be. What they settled for was something called “co-ops”—which stands for Consumer Oriented and Operated Plans. As the Washington Post explains, “The co-ops differ from traditional insurers in their nonprofit status, consumer focus and organizational structure; they will be governed by boards controlled by policyholders.” In other words, the co-ops would get rid of those greedy, self-interested actuaries and insurers who were profiteering on the backs of the sick. Not full-blown socialized medicine, but a good start. S&P writes: “All but one of the [23] co-ops included in our study reported negative net income through the first three quarters of 2014. … Most co-ops’ weak operating performance is a result of high medical claims trend and not enough scale to offset administ

Those concerns should be addressed as well. Voting integrity is a must for any side.

Some 200,000 Obamacare enrollees are about to be kicked off their insurance policies after they failed to confirm that they are legally living in the United States administration officials announced Thursday. Under the health law, people enrolled in exchange policies must be able to prove legal status.

Last summer, the administration announced that there were significant discrepancies in hundreds of thousands of Obamacare applications—specifically dealing with citizenship. Health officials sent out letters in August to about 300,000 enrollees with application discrepancies asking them to send in relevant documents to confirm their legal status and resolve the issue.
