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.

NasCarNut: Do you think everything you describe in your last post will be free and the health care companies will just roll over and eat the costs? You must be one of the voters Gruber talked about.

Wait until the people find out about that box they have to check of on their tax form.

And here are a few numbers on how the GOP plan would impact consumers who are already benefiting from Obamacare:

Approximately 105 million Americans could pay more for preventive care, including nearly 47 million women.105 million Americans could be subject to lifetime caps.Up to 17 million children with pre-existing conditions could be denied coverage or charged more.More than 7.1 million seniors and people with disabilities who reached the donut hole would have to spend billions more on their prescription drugs.Up to 129 million Americans with pre-existing conditions could be charged more, or denied coverage, which is prohibited beginning in 2014. In total, an estimated 43 percent of people with individual market insurance have a pre-existing condition.

nder the GOP Healthcare Plan of repealing the Affordable Care Act, insurance companies would be put back in the driver’s seat, allowing them to:

Kick kids off their family healthcare plans;Drop consumers for having a pre-existing conditions;Refuse to cover preventive care for those with plans;Insurance companies could even overcharge consumers just to boost their profits;And so much more...

Republican leaders from Ted Cruz to John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and Marco Rubio have come together unanimously behind a single healthcare plan: repeal the Affordable Care Act and bring back the old system where insurance companies ran the show. That’s it — their entire plan for fixing the old broken healthcare system, is to go back to the old broken healthcare system.

I don't remember any Republicans voting for ACA. ACA is exactly as the Democrats and Jonathan Gruber wanted it. Are you one of the stupid voters Gruber refers to?

Sen. Chuck Schumer upbraided his own party Tuesday for pushing the Affordable Care Act through Congress in 2010.

While Schumer emphasized during a speech at the National Press Club that he supports the law and that its policies "are and will continue to be positive changes," he argued that the Democrats acted wrongly in using their new mandate after the 2008 election to focus on the issue rather than the economy at the height of a terrible recession.

"After passing the stimulus, Democrats should have continued to propose middle-class-oriented programs and built on the partial success of the stimulus, but unfortunately Democrats blew the opportunity the American people gave them," Schumer said. "We took their mandate and put all of our focus on the wrong problem—health care reform."

Well Chuck , it is still a problem!

ohwiseone and the truth? (HA!) Two diametrically opposed propositions there be.

ohwiseone - Here's Jon Voight's opinion on "the truth" as it relates to Obama's designs. From the year 2009, but just as relevant today.

"Jon Voight tells the truth about Obama. Wake up America."

health ins. determines what type of health care you get ? You just said we have lousy healthcare. Having all the insurance, according to you, still leaves you being treated in the 37th worst place to be?

Are you reading the stuff you are posting or just cut and pasting?

So maybe The Democrats should have focused on Healthcare not health insurance?

We already have the best healthcare in the world. You are out of touch as to what Obmamcare is. Google it. Obamacare is health insurance, not health care.

Pay attention.

The Department of Health and Human Services said Thursday it made a mistake in how it calculated enrollments under the Affordable Care Act, including 380,000 dental plans in its figures for medical plans.

Those stand-alone dental plans allowed the Obama administration to claim more than 7 million paid enrollments — the "magic number" that would allow the new health insurance exchanges to be sustainable.
