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.

fred, i m more of a numbers person than an emotional person...with the exception of children and the elderly. maybe that is why i extend patience with you more than i normally would. where in my post did i say it should be scrapped? i stated that the exemptions along with the sign-up statistics would not allow the law to realize its stated goal. you may choose to read more into my post...but it is simply not there. all people enjoy instant gratification....i won't even go there on that topic.

The public will believe anything, so long as it is not founded on truth. - Edith Sitwell

AND dont you find it ironic that they give us heck for citing Fox news and call Rush Limbaugh a liar when their own Liar in Chief Barry has set the record for lies ???? That is pretty f@cked up !!

BobBarker, your explanation of the reason he received the award kind of degrades its significance.

actually fred, if you can get past your obvious blindness of the facts, you will find that what i posted was gleaned from several non-fox sources and combined into my objectionable post. while reading my posts may be a struggle, i find great glee in having you take the time to read them. i think you will find the facts that i provided to be accurate and since you do seem to read my post with prejudice, you may find that i was dismayed that the actual mandates that would make this law successful were being dismantled by it's namesake. everyday is nice and thank you.

your doctor." even though he neglected to add that he also stated empirically that you can keep your doctor. is he really not satified with only having ONE "Lie of the Year" award???? greedy...ain't he!

for some... no pain and all gain. the President is slowly but surely removing the teeth(personal responsiblility) from the law by suggestion and then vote. the exemptions i believe will keep the law from its intended purpose in several respects. this law has the unfolding potential to become another unfunded mandate which will need to be funded. it has been shown that the people will not fully fund the law through personal responsibility and therefore the balance will need to be provided....but how? the hardship exemption along with the many others as well as the less than stellar performance so far is further bewildering when one hears the president say that the law is fully funded by its participants that have signed up so far. his statement and the numbers do not balance. is this just another anticipated success like his Nobel Peace prize??? is optimism to be blindly deemed as success? it appears so...by the way in the same interview he conceded that "you may have to change yo

Obama said/promised you wont lose your doctor but that aint true. People are also having less choice on what doctors to go to. Not too hard to comprehend is it??

I have already chosen the side of truth and reason. The politicians of the past made the same mistake your ilk has in assuming the American people are stupid and short sighted. This I am sure will be rectified in Nov but for now people are so SICK of talking about politics that they are putting it off. If the repubs don't control everything the end of this year it will be because people gave up and dint vote out of exasperation !!!

Asknot - you obviously do not have a serious medical problem or you wouldn't say that !! So it is ALL ABOUT YOU !!

Did the Fla gov vote for the health care act? I didnt know they did that LOL. You guys can't handle the truth can you ??

The world of politics is nothing if not cynical and hypocritical. One-time allies can turn on you in an instant, if the polling data says it's a good idea to turn. Alliances are a mile wide and an inch deep. And so it is with the Democrats who voted for Obamacare and are now scrambling for an escape hatch.

A dozen or so Democratic senators up for re-election next year are beginning to panic, as the president's signature legislation continues to break promises, under-deliver and, quite literally, imperil the lives of Americans who are losing health insurance plans - many of them chronically ill.

I see your point but not the problem. A win is a win as you said.

My words - It is only March. The races will heat up more as people start thinking about it closer to November.!! Hows that??

The race has been considered an early test of President Barack Obama's signature health care reform law as an election issue going into the 2014 midterms.
