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.

You have to be careful about over taxing the rich... Because.... they are rich..... they can afford to move and live anywhere in the world...... that has a lower tax rate.....you libtards cannot figure that one out. The new president of France figured it out a few yrs ago. He threatened to double their taxes and the rich informed him that about 80 percent of them were moving to Sweden !!! Tax increase cancelled...

NasCarNut: Do you think everything you describe in your last post will be free and the health care companies will just roll over and eat the costs? You must be one of the voters Gruber talked about.

Wait until the people find out about that box they have to check of on their tax form.

It was described as a tax cut for the rich. No universal coverage at all. Which is sorely needed.

Nutsie. If you are talking about the Ed Gillespie plan, I searched it and read the Wash Post and USA Today version. I did NOT see anything about senior GOP members backing this plan though. Yes - it appears to be a weak attempt to change the law as was his failed congressional run was a failure. I didn't say they ALL were great leaders.

And here are a few numbers on how the GOP plan would impact consumers who are already benefiting from Obamacare:

Approximately 105 million Americans could pay more for preventive care, including nearly 47 million women.105 million Americans could be subject to lifetime caps.Up to 17 million children with pre-existing conditions could be denied coverage or charged more.More than 7.1 million seniors and people with disabilities who reached the donut hole would have to spend billions more on their prescription drugs.Up to 129 million Americans with pre-existing conditions could be charged more, or denied coverage, which is prohibited beginning in 2014. In total, an estimated 43 percent of people with individual market insurance have a pre-existing condition.

nder the GOP Healthcare Plan of repealing the Affordable Care Act, insurance companies would be put back in the driver’s seat, allowing them to:

Kick kids off their family healthcare plans;Drop consumers for having a pre-existing conditions;Refuse to cover preventive care for those with plans;Insurance companies could even overcharge consumers just to boost their profits;And so much more...

Republican leaders from Ted Cruz to John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and Marco Rubio have come together unanimously behind a single healthcare plan: repeal the Affordable Care Act and bring back the old system where insurance companies ran the show. That’s it — their entire plan for fixing the old broken healthcare system, is to go back to the old broken healthcare system.

What ? you don't recall when the president had the republican leaders to the white house and tried to get their input ? That was the first thing they had to change ! I think because they were afraid it would work !

I don't remember any Republicans voting for ACA. ACA is exactly as the Democrats and Jonathan Gruber wanted it. Are you one of the stupid voters Gruber refers to?

Some states they have gone down , some have gone up ! It was on the news the other day and frankly I didn't pay that close attention ! Whats sad is we could have had the same insurance that senators and other government employees had but the republicans said no ( then it might have worked better) !

Health insurance rates have not gone done. What proof do you have that it is working?

To bad for you , but it seems that Obamacare is starting to work ! Evidenced by the fact that the right-wing talking heads don't want to talk about it anymore !

Got to pass it to know what is in it! LOL.

Maybe he should have read it before he voted for it.

Sen. Chuck Schumer upbraided his own party Tuesday for pushing the Affordable Care Act through Congress in 2010.

While Schumer emphasized during a speech at the National Press Club that he supports the law and that its policies "are and will continue to be positive changes," he argued that the Democrats acted wrongly in using their new mandate after the 2008 election to focus on the issue rather than the economy at the height of a terrible recession.

"After passing the stimulus, Democrats should have continued to propose middle-class-oriented programs and built on the partial success of the stimulus, but unfortunately Democrats blew the opportunity the American people gave them," Schumer said. "We took their mandate and put all of our focus on the wrong problem—health care reform."

Well Chuck , it is still a problem!
