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.

Republican David Jolly has won the special election to fill the empty congressional seat in Florida's 13th congressional district, the Associated Press reports, defeating Democratic rival Alex Sink.

The election was held Tuesday to fill the seat left vacant by longtime Rep. Bill Young (R-Fla.), who died last year. 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.

Below, more from the Associated Press:

Republican David Jolly defeated Democrat Alex Sink on Tuesday in a Tampa-area House district where President Barack Obama's health care overhaul got its first test ahead of November's midterm elections and Democrats and Republicans spent millions of dollars auditioning national strategies for the rest of the year.

Do younot remember the town hall meetings where the people were so mad because the congresspeople were pretty much telling them that they were voting it in no matter what they thought and how they almost had riots at them?? I am just telling you that the dems that voted for the ACA sealed their own fates and all indications indicate they are history !!

BobB. I am not gooan argue with you. We willd just see what happens this November. In reading about it, there seems little chance that the dems wont pay with their jobs for voting in the ACA. There are still people out there that vote that dont appreciate elected officials running roughshod over them and betraying them..

I know people on Medicaid who are working people and yes they pay taxes, just like you do .

Sold have clarified free for those who need it, to qualify for Medicaid you need to be pretty poor. If you are single, you can have very little in possessions,must work a minimum wage job or close to it. They have always been poor people and unfortunately they have gotten themselves into a situation where this is the only way they can be treated for illness. Medicaid is not a new program.

Those that passed it to see what was in it (meaning democrats) are gonna find out what was in it.. The UNEMPLOYMENT LINE was in it for them because they are gonna be booted out of Congress for IGNORING their constituents and listening to Obama who bailed OUT on them all and left them in a cloud of dust!!!

BobBarker...the A.C.A. sabotaged itself. it did not need any help at accomplishing that feat. it looks like according to the president, lack of implementation is the fix and thusly it should just be called what it actually is....a failure.

BobBarker, you are one up on me since i do not listen to Rush unless i am in the car. i thought your number seemed a little high even from an optimistic standpoint, so i had to look further. speaking of the radio, i wish i could stay up and listen to the coast-to-coast broadcasts. they seem to have some pretty interesting characters on that show. anyway, i do hope you are well and in good health so you do not need to sweat this heathcare debacle that the democrats forced upon all of us.

BobBarker, according to CNBC, the actual number that signed up was 943,000. bringing the total to 4.2 million that have signed up so far. that is about 2 million beneath the goal of the administration. the targeted demographic that would keep this law financially afloat has stayed at an average sign-up rate of only 27%. nearly 20% of the 4.2 million that have signed up have yet to make a single payment as required by the law. the zeal of the sign-up is lost when actually having to pay. it is not surprising to see the number of sign-ups when you consider that the large majority of them are already on a government subsidized medical program. shifting from one taxpayer funded program to another is hardly anything to crow about...but you do. as usual you are a "Chirpee"...i used to think that a chirpee was what you would call a disease if a bird had herpes...but i was wrong.
