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.

fred, i took the liberty of looking into my claim about paying less than what many fortunate folks will take out of not only S.S. and Medicare. this is what i found to substantiate my claim. the following assumes a starting working age of 22 until the then current retirement age of 65. this also assumes continous employment at a steady rate of income. " According to the institute’s data, a two-earner couple receiving an average wage — $44,600 per spouse in 2012 dollars — and turning 65 in 2010 would have paid $722,000 into Social Security and Medicare and can be expected to take out $966,000 in benefits. So, this couple will be paid about one-third more in benefits than they paid in taxes." "the Social Security shortfall will be more than evened out by the extra dollars the couple gets back from Medicare. The couple will have paid $122,000 in Medicare taxes but will receive $387,000 in benefits — more than three times what they paid in." "past and current gene

If ACA is "the law of the Land", how is it being changed and modified so many times but not by Congress who makes and amends laws? How can a law be constitutional that allows administrators the power to change it at will without consulting Congress, especially if those changes affect the amount of money it will cost? Just a few random questions to help get this back on track.

This will be amusing because so many pages of copy/psate will disappear by this time tomorrow.

I was glad that they suspended the penalty for this year. It will give many people a better chance to get coverage.

As I said Fred, you have a habit of trying to make your opponent fit your argument rather than the other way around. That's why you use straw men wild accusation and associations that don't exist as you lack the ability to tailor your arugument, you just spew it.

Good lord Fred you brought a whole army of straw men with you. I have noticed something about you Fred. You are not clever in a debate. You have to try to frame someone to fit your argument rather than fit your argument to the topic. It just shows you just not very clever or just getting a little slow perhaps. I suppose that is why you make so many false accusations and false associations.
