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.

Please tell me about the people who had plans prior to Obamacare and had their insurance cost go down? You know, the people who work for a living.

You're right! I hear a lot of talk about the negative impact ‘Obamacare’ will have on the American people. Unfortunately, the Obama Administration's Affordable Care Act would cost American households about half of what they would pay under Mitt Romney's proposed [url=*******personalmoneynetwork****/moneyblog/2012/10/01/romney-healthcare-plan/]healthcare plan[/url]. That was the conclusion of a recent study.

Whats funny is you all were going to be paying through the nose for insurance anyway !Do you really think that your insurance was going to stay the same ? Costs are trending upwards at 15-20% and have been for years !

Republicans are said to want to repeal Obamacare. Supporters of Obamacare say fix it. The Democrats who say fix it need to admit that the Republicans were correct when they voted 100% against that flawed bill to begin with. 100% of Democrats voted for Obamacare without even first reading the bill. That alone should get them thrown out of office. Now they want to fix a bill that is beyond repair. Pre-existing condition coverage, kids staying on their parents policy until 27 are all well and good. It is the other 3000 pages of legislation that is the problem.

Thirty companies in the Standard & Poor’s 500, including United Parcel Service, General Electric and retailer Dollar General, have mentioned the Affordable Care Act during their conference calls since March 1 and all through the first-quarter earnings season. Most of the companies talking about the law did so negatively, pointing out how it either hurts demand for their business or causes costs to increase. “There are legitimate complaints,” says Kip Piper, an independent consultant that advises companies on health-care plans. “The ACA does impose costs and obligations that cost money.”

I wonder if all the people who now have health "coverage" will be willing to pay the deductables to get health "care".

Low flood insurnance rates are subsidized by tax payers. When an attempt yo pass the true cost of flood insurance on to those who buy it, there was howl heard throughout the land.

good morning to you moderation. i would venture to propose the site's owner, Mr. Hess, would be the "Po-Po". he has stated that he is very liberal in regards to the latitude in which he allows the posters to express their thoughts. considering the bunch over here it could be a "roadhouse" scenario!

tired-Do you think your career work should be considered more valuable in terms of medical health security than that of a municipal worker or an employee of a landscaping business?I already know you believe you are contributing your intellect at a gold standard level.

I am still amazed that people expect their neighbors to pay for their healthcare, flood insurance, etc.

Yeah Bob, thats fine, I work for my family too, the difference is I don't advocate for someone else to pay my bills because they have more than I do. I advocate for the liberals to stop taxing me to death to buy themselves power.

Actually, Tired, you did manage to stumble upon one correct assumption for a change. It IS all about "me me me" (I would however, include "and my family" in your blurt).

That is the reason I go to work every day, and pay my due to the IRS this time of year.
