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 you like it you can keep it: President Barack Obama tried this month to defuse a political crisis over his health-care overhaul with an eleventh-hour offer to let people keep their noncompliant health policies an extra year — if insurers agreed. But that offer likely will mean little for Ohioans upset with the notices they received in recent months telling them that those policies were being discontinued. Medical Mutual of Ohio, one of the state’s largest sellers of health insurance to individuals, said yesterday that it will not extend its plans that do not comply with the Affordable Care Act for an extra year.

Welcome to Obamaland.

Until the heading of WTF: Obamacare spporters are bing told to NOT SEND people to the heathcare.gov web site for fear it may crash.

I forgot to push the Times Spell Check button: ACA was and is not about health care it is about health insurance. The ACA will ruin Health Care for millions when they lose their doctor and the policies they like.

Leno said that people are getting so frustrated with all of the Obamacare problems, that they are returning to Mexico.

Here in lies the problem in that the "trainwreck" was seen coming, predicted and everyone involved wrote the people saying that as "chicken littles". What if they pull this with something actually devastatingly catastrophic ?????

One thing a wise person needs to learn early in life is dont mess with or work on anything that is above your training or knowledge of. In my case it is electricity and anything beyond checking fuses, breakers, loose connections etc. The people that were responsible for setting up the ACA were obviously WAY in over their heads and thought they understood everything there is/was to know about health care and website construction which is obviously not true and everyone predicted it to NO avail...

exactly what you have said should not be done. he practically begged to go back to square-one. initially he expected the insurance companies to accomplish in 31 days what our supposedly tech-savvy and hip young government workers could not do in over 3 years...and that is to even put together a fully funtioning web site. this should have its own entry in the dictionary under the word boondoggle and it's many synonyms. time for more coffee.....hey wheres my sweet roll????

asknot, they yapping has continued for many other government deemed problems and programs. just look at the list of carrer politcal-fixers that keep cozying themselves up to the government trough at the taxpayer expense. in our mis-guided and infantile way we have been allowing them to screw up for so long that it has become the norm. our elected officials have insulated themselves so well within the bubble, that is the "Government", that they are never held to task. take this administration, you blatantly lie... no worries we'll transfer you with a raise in pay. tell lies and take one for the team, no problem time to start your campaign for the presidency, be the Mac-Daddy of lies and finish your lame duck session only to collect your bennies for the rest of your natural life while leaving your blunders to the suffering of the American people. btw, in case you have not noticed...other than continuing to fix the massive screw-up which is "heathcare.gov", they did

asknot, in my area a local group of doctors have been slowly but surely buying up the local hospitals and they currently operate under one umbrella. many regional hospitals are finding it hard to stay afloat for various reasons. one thing that many do not focus on is the high cost of higher education. the anwer is not another d*** government subsidy. the costs associated with becoming primary care physicians as well as the multitude specialists are astronomical. not to mention the costs that medical caregivers pay to join partnerships. that is another story unto itself. the insurance companies are the demons dejour, but soon enough under the ACA, you can bet your bottom dollar they will be just like Social Security...broke and bleeding money. the politicians are good at many things but unfortunately managing our country much less our healthcare system is not one of them. god help us.
