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 do not care for mint-juleps...can't stand gin. anyway, your sterotyping of me is humourous and as you know...i like you fred. but seriously what points did i make that you have a problem with? maybe i can clear up my math and thinking. sound fair?

BobBarker, anyone whose plan did not meet the requirements were cancelled. perhaps you could research and give us the correct numbers of all that had to change policies due to the new law.

actually fred...you are correct about one thing. i and my family have an excellent insurance plan that we pay dearly for...as do our employees. our tax-exempt beneflex program was cut by about 50% which affects quite a few folks of all income levels. i assume you are familiar with the program....if not then i will fill you in.

fred...you ought to know that i only get the national enquirer because i don't believe all of the alien baby stories in others such as "The Globe".

full/subsidized price is unavailable for some strange reason(embarassment maybe???) either way i defy you to show where i mentioned race or gender as a negative in my discussions of Obamacare. if not then retract your last statement when you lumped me into your false claim.

do was pay their own childrens premiums instead of having everyone else pay for them. you do realize that the program is no where near filled with the target people in which to attempt to make it solvent. they are too smart to pay full price when they can get it on the cheap and on the backs of those that are paying full price now for their insurance. you also realize the tax-free health savings account was cut almost in half which affected many of the people you are claiming getting such a great benefit. fred...give me a little credit...things are not beyond me as much as you might think. other than signing up for your subsidized healthcare, you should have very little concern..whereas those of us that employ people have to know the less desirable aspects of the law...you do not and probably nor do you care. of those 9 million, 2/3 are eligible for medicaid with the balance signing up for private insurance. the information concerning whether they are simply paying the penalty or the

fred...seriously...are you really trying to tell me that all that have "chipped" in as you say have paid for the extensive care that they may recieve from any governemnt program. the insurance companies charge higher risk folks more as they should pay more. thats the rub with Obamacare. the healthy are expected to prop up the elderly and the unhealthy. i would venture to guess that one intricate surgery would wipe out the contributions that many have paid into any governemnt system. the ponzi scheme that is many of the assitance and support systems which you tout depend heavily on "so-called" tax support for its lenient contributors support. those such as yourself that have been fortunate or ornery enough to have lived as long as you have may wish to add up all that you have paid in and compare it at the end of your life. i have the suspicion that you will be in arrears. guess what fred...parents could insure their kids until they died beforehand. all they had to d

fred...the national enquirer gets it right more times than the slanted mainstream media. they have weathered many legal threats from those who have been embarassed by their publication. if you have the time...please feel free to investigate its accuracy...then comment.

BobBarker: Please don't forget to have yourself spayed or neutered as your namesake always reminded everyone. Stop the spread of Liberalism through abortion and birth control. Practice what you preach and doom yourselves to extinction. Without the illegal aliens being allowed to become citizens your party would self destruct within a few generations. Your party has used and abused the blacks for so long you have to incorporate new members with the pledge of Free Stuff. "Who is in the majority doofus ??? NOT YOU !!!!" Not you either.

BobBarker you have a very skewed view of compromise. why in the world do you expect the republicans to "fix" obamacare??? the democrats can't even do that. the President is dictating the changes that seemingly make a bad bit of legislation better...but unfortunately..even your-do-no wrong Obama can't fix the train wreck that your party shoved down the american peoples throat. btw...according to the national enquirer, queen michelle is planning her own Obama Presidency exit strategy. either way the law screwed the pooch right out of the gate and how you or anyone else can defend it is beyond me. if you personally paid for your own insurance you would see some of the subtle hardships that the law places on your everyday working person.

i agree...but when ones stands at a podium and repeatedly says "I" when stating a policy change or promise....one must be assigned the glory or the blame depending on the outcome of said proclamation. without a doubt he and the democratic leadership imposed upon the american people an inferior product. period.
