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 i am not mistaken....who is gonna pony up that steep deductable as well as the unpaid premiums, fines and penalties that your loving democrats are heaping on your unforunate 40 million that are incapable of providing their own means without the nanny-state government pretending to hold them accountable. the unappreciative people that can't even show up on time to get their free cheese(healthcare insurance) are clamoring for the democrats to have pity and relieve them of one of the basic requirements of the law in which to somehow defray some of the enormous costs coming down the pike for americans that do the reponsible thing.... but the democrats already knew it would happen. they are not as economically stupid as their supporters. do the math OWO and get back to me. in the meantime why not help a brother out and share some those nifty things that you recently bragged about "working" for with some of those 40 million....i'll pass you by in the free soup line on my way to

OWO...it is not my "faux". you are barking up the wrong tree there fido. those numbers i quoated come from you and the U.S. Census bureau. so is you "faux" or is you real? as i have said before....it's all good til you gotta pay.

Also what youre not taking into account is the 20% rise for this year ! That's what this is all about !

Well you have to take the middle ground between what your Faux says and what comes from the government ! So it isn't quite as bad as your republiduds say it is , and not as good as the government says. But if it helps half of the forty million then that still is a lot !

OWO....hate is such a strong word coming from your weak attack. prior to this law, which in fact hurts the middle class,(you know the one your party supposedly champions) most in the middle class were quite satisfied with what they either worked or directly paid for out of pocket. frankly the only ones that were falling down dead in streets were the gang members, hapless victims of crime and drug addicts. as i have stated before the only thing that changed with the law is the flow of money and the loss of benefits that many of the middle-calss and lower income folks enjoyed. based upon 2010 census numbers there were a little over 194 million americans between the working ages of 18 to 64 minus your claim of 40 million which i am certain contains ages outside of my quoted age span that are adversly affected by this law. hopefully you have been bright enough to be following the unfolding calamity that is your parties law. it is there in digital black and white as well as on many varied

Why do republicans hate the 40 million people who now can get health care ? Do they really dislike the poor and needy that much ?

Besides your dumbocrats were positively giddy over their handiwork. At the signing they reminded me of a proud child as they peered into the toilet bowl at their first successful poo-poo. Don't you remember that?

Just imagine if they had not screwed the pooch from the get-go.

Just imagine what we would have had if only we had just a little help from the obstructionists !

OWO..things were working for the Challenger for a short period of time. Perhaps we would all have a better sense of how well the law would work if it were fully implemented. Would you not agree? I mean most everybody enjoys the product until the payment is due.

"So simple the republicans cant do it themselves !" comments such as that OWO are what i am referring too. i believe you are capable of more than that. now...the Ithaca post is an example of the lumacy that is occuring. the students have their own insurance outside of the university but are still having to pay for a service that they will not use. it is insane. unfortunately that same logic is found within many of our current social programs. good or bad they are there.

Now back to the point ! Its always about the money , Who is making it and how much ? We all know doctors make a pretty good living and equipment is always being upgraded but where does this end ?The Ceo's and upper officers of health ins. companies make obscene amounts of money , are they worth it?Whats the point of having the latest and greatest hospital if no one can afford to go there ?

" same ol' diarrhea that you post "? I do believe that the same can be said about the right-wing claptrap you post !

over the past years. “The fee was a slap in the face,” Ferrer said of students already reeling from rising tuition costs. Cornell responded to the backlash on Thursday by acknowledging student discontent but stood firm that the fee is necessary to create a sustainable health model and increase access to health care." the piper must be paid. freebies can only last so long.
