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.

For your buddy to get a 0 payment, someone else is paying far more than they should. It ain't right.

I will say this, his plan is NOT 0 dollars a month, I am paying for part of his plan. This is the redistribution part of the socialist program

Lots of peopel are signing up but......What the administration is withholding here are the demographics—age, distribution, and more,You have to wonder why they are keeping that a secret. If these numbers were telling a good story, they would publish them and make them widely available.

What’s more, it’s unclear how many of these 1.1 million people have actually paid for their plans, which is the standard insurance industry definition of enrollment. HHS is counting people as enrolled even if they have not necessarily paid for their first month’s premiums.

Reports on TV today say that of all the people reported to have "signed up" for Obamacare, only 15 % have actually paid their first month premium which means come Jan 1 they will still be without health insurance.

Yeah beright. And you are forced to buy ******s whether or not you need them or not. Even if you are 75, you have to have birth control. I don't know. I am being facetious. Those people from Woodstock have been running the EPA and other high levels of gov for a few years now. That is part of the problem. Could you imagine the decisions that would be made if they legalized marijuana? Did you see where Susan Sarandon admitted to never attending an awards show without being stoned? And she has like 8 emmys or grammys.

finally an explantion for the aberration known as Obamacare from Mainstreet dot com: HEADLINE

Now We Know What Happened to Those Who Took Bad Acid at Woodstock

The Healthcare.gov website is a disaster, more insured are becoming uninsured than vice versa, more are paying higher premiums rather than less, there is less access to physicians instead of greater access and reports are that officials are concerned some will not pay their premiums when due. Yet, Congressional Democrats and the Obama administration insist the Affordable Care Act program is sailing smoothly.

Now we know what happened to the people who took the bad acid at Woodstock.

Are codoms considered birth control and covered under Obamacare?

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

BeRight

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
