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.

Blather from the left Robert Reich: The other day I heard a young man say he’d rather pay a penalty than buy health insurance under the Act because, in his words, “why should I pay for the sick and the old?” The answer is he has a responsibility to do so, as a member the same society they inhabit.

The Act also depends on richer people paying higher taxes to finance health insurance for lower-income people. We are becoming a vastly unequal society in which most of the economic gains are going to the top. It’s only just that those with higher incomes bear some responsibility for maintaining the health of Americans who are less fortunate.

But there would be no reason to reform and extend health insurance to begin with if we did not have moral obligations to one another as members of the same society.

Can you spell Income Redistribution?

If you like it you can keep it: President Barack Obama tried this month to defuse a political crisis over his health-care overhaul with an eleventh-hour offer to let people keep their noncompliant health policies an extra year — if insurers agreed. But that offer likely will mean little for Ohioans upset with the notices they received in recent months telling them that those policies were being discontinued. Medical Mutual of Ohio, one of the state’s largest sellers of health insurance to individuals, said yesterday that it will not extend its plans that do not comply with the Affordable Care Act for an extra year.

Welcome to Obamaland.

I forgot to push the Times Spell Check button: ACA was and is not about health care it is about health insurance. The ACA will ruin Health Care for millions when they lose their doctor and the policies they like.

Here in lies the problem in that the "trainwreck" was seen coming, predicted and everyone involved wrote the people saying that as "chicken littles". What if they pull this with something actually devastatingly catastrophic ?????

One thing a wise person needs to learn early in life is dont mess with or work on anything that is above your training or knowledge of. In my case it is electricity and anything beyond checking fuses, breakers, loose connections etc. The people that were responsible for setting up the ACA were obviously WAY in over their heads and thought they understood everything there is/was to know about health care and website construction which is obviously not true and everyone predicted it to NO avail...

exactly what you have said should not be done. he practically begged to go back to square-one. initially he expected the insurance companies to accomplish in 31 days what our supposedly tech-savvy and hip young government workers could not do in over 3 years...and that is to even put together a fully funtioning web site. this should have its own entry in the dictionary under the word boondoggle and it's many synonyms. time for more coffee.....hey wheres my sweet roll????

asknot, they yapping has continued for many other government deemed problems and programs. just look at the list of carrer politcal-fixers that keep cozying themselves up to the government trough at the taxpayer expense. in our mis-guided and infantile way we have been allowing them to screw up for so long that it has become the norm. our elected officials have insulated themselves so well within the bubble, that is the "Government", that they are never held to task. take this administration, you blatantly lie... no worries we'll transfer you with a raise in pay. tell lies and take one for the team, no problem time to start your campaign for the presidency, be the Mac-Daddy of lies and finish your lame duck session only to collect your bennies for the rest of your natural life while leaving your blunders to the suffering of the American people. btw, in case you have not noticed...other than continuing to fix the massive screw-up which is "heathcare.gov", they did
