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.

Those drugs that received taxpayer subsidized research money, and are available at considerably less cost out of the USA ?

In the course of pushing millions of individuals off their old insurance plans, the Obama administration pointed out that new Obamacare plans would have more benefits such as free birth control. But that wasn't the whole story................. Even as birth control coverage became mandatory and the administration fights to the Supreme Court to force compliance, The Washington Post reports that insurers "have pared their drug benefits significantly." While your plan must always cover cheap birth control pills, you better read the fine print to make sure the plan covers expensive drugs for grave afflictions such as cancer, multiple sclerosis or HIV.

thegreek...surprisingly the story is not true. however, i would not have put it beyond possible. the following is true and sheds some light on why the city is going belly-up! "The city is hiring an armored car company to handle the daily collection of bus-fare revenue after officials discovered a disorganized cash-counting operation within the Department of Transportation, The Detroit News has learned." i can see the counting as follows: one coin for the city and 100 for me, 100 for you and 100 for your cousin vinny...now repeat.

and we think it's good public policy. People have to have gas in their cars to be able to go to the doctor.

As the battle over Obamacare rages in Washington, the White House is quietly using a little known provision of the law to roll out a nationwide network of free gas stations for minorities and the poor. According to a report in The Detroit News this morning, the administration is using its authority under the Affordable Care Act to "improve transportation routes to hospitals" to dispense gasoline free of cost in disadvantaged neighborhoods. The $2 billion-a-year program aims to distribute 40 million gallons of free gasoline each year through 70 new gas stations constructed in major metropolitan areas. The Department of Health and Human Services (DHS) will be responsible for operating the network, whose first station opened yesterday in Detroit. "It's not something we're publicizing very much, for obvious reasons," explains Dori Salcido, assistant DHS secretary for public affairs. "But under the law we are well within our rights to offer this service, and we thi

good late afternoon moderation. in your opinion which is preferable, the writing off of bad debt or the receivables from goods and/or services rendered and why? enjoying the lovely winter view from the WTAP cam.

asknot- with the ongoing corruption and extraction that exists in the 'business' world, it does make it difficult to convince the electorate that they are,often times, not voting in their best economic interest.However,I believe the extremes of the rights' choice of candidates for the national races have realigned and strengthened the lefts position.Maybe not as effectively and efficiently as some may wish, but, for sure, changed the cadance from the extreme right wing.

good afternoon moderation. to answer your question...yes it was. i was at the end of an all-nighter and popped on to catch the chirping of the early birds. it appears that write-up of your information appeared in the dailykos. i took the time to fact check the inofrmation and found that the site was set-up as an information site that many who recieved mailer regarding the ACA were asked to visit. it was not as costly or underhanded as our own presidents expenditures, lies, deceit and willful misrepresentation that we got for our hard-earned or easily-borrowed dollar....depending on the actual source of funding. by all means please continue to support and defend the charade that is this adminisration but be prepared for the promised end to not be worth the means. horrible mistakes like time are hard to undo. we should not allow the mistake to continue. now we can quibble about what is the mistake or shall i just wait til the new dailykos or jay carney spin?

perhaps it would do this administration well to visit the site. it seems they have a great deal of difficulty in revealing the truth about their signature law.
