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.

The Democrats (the undeniable 'parents' of ACA) are looking for solutions for their offspring after it immediately upon birth turned into a Serial Killer.

Their present startegy, ask others to help them cover their ***.

I am just surprised that so many people are surprised. The Republicans were telling all who would listen that all this stuff was going to happen. Only now is the media outraged. If they did their homework and read the law they would have known but since no one read the law, including every Democrat who voted for it, they feel betrayed. I figure they figured that Obama must have read the law since what he was saying was in his teleprompter.

If I needed a car really bad I would not go buy a junker and keep throwing money at it and trying to drive it. I would get a new one. But here we have a new one that is running like a piece of crap and people keep trying to get you to keep it when most of us want a replacement because this one is gonna be junk as long as we own it.

Free is a relative term. Is it free if it causes a financial collapse of the US monetary system??

Well over 30 million will be left uninsured even after Obamacare is FULLY implemented. What the………………….?

Oh yeah, did you hear the President lied about that little thing about keeping your insurance if you like it?

"Carney said that the president's repeated guarantee that “if you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it" was in reference to the "broader promise of the Affordable Care Act."

Oh, REALLY?

I don't remember any 'ands', 'ors', or 'buts' following that "can keep it, PERIOD" crap!

Millions losing the coverage that THEY PURCHASED, have been with and were promised that they "can keep, PERIOD". The necessary backbone support group to keep DemoCare alive, the young and healthy, having little desire to buy into it. Many of those that are credited with already purchasing it are actually signing up for Medicare. IDENTITY THEFT about to run rampant because of the digitized exchange of personal information. WOW!!!

Whom to blame? Whom to blame? Can't punish Obama. He's done politically. SAY!! Many of those loyal, unquestioning, "useful idiot" Democrats that paraded their accomplishment through the halls of Congress in 2009, are up for reelection in 2014. Whom to blame?

Oh, it'll be a hot time in the old town, tonight (come Tuesday, November 4, 2014).

A "fix" is coming, the only one Obamanite sycophants will willing tolerate and you'll have nothing to say about.

A Single-Payer health care system is headed to a theater near you.

It's NOT my Republican Party! Some of them chose to give the flawed implementation of DemoCare just the right cover, at just at the right time.

I can't explain it, but Hurricane Sandy seemed to give the Obama reelection campaign the "Kiss of Life" at just the right moment.

(cont) If Republicans win a majority in the senate and retain such in the house, you are not going to change DemoCare. Obama knows he has given a free gift to those that would rather burn US cities to the ground than ever WORK for what they need.

AND, you'll and your offspring (if you've raised them half-way right) will be paying for it ad infinitum.

Asknot - When you express; "Instead of just whining about ACA and posting titles of books/websites that anyone can google and find to justify their own beliefs. Let's hear a thought on what we should do INSTEAD of ACA." I HAVE A QUESTION.

Why did the Obamanites roll into the WH, with both houses of congress under their arms, and immediately act like the country was burning down for lack of 15% (A DISTINCT MINORITY) of the people not having health care coverage? THEN, while crafting their witch's brew to take control of 18% of our national economy, they unabashedly blocked ANY republican input on the subject.

Now, sore winners (such as yourself) make laudatory statements like, "Let's hear a thought on what we should do INSTEAD of ACA." I've got news for you, Bud. It's too late. You've done the damage.

All good points.

Asknot. I agree with Beright. Something so important as a health care law should have NEVER been passed like a knee jerk reaction to right something and for darn sure with none of the people voting for it even understanding what is in it !!! That is a breeding ground for corruption and miserable failure. Just because the old system sucked in your opinion, which I dont think so, if you wanted money and healthcare, you got .... a... ah....JOB TO PAY FOR IT.. It wasn't given to you !!!

If you want to talk about SNAP and EBT, start your own Forum Topic. We are trashing Obmamacare on this one.

The Snap cuts for the working poor was Obama’s fault since the benefits that Libs call "cuts" were only temporary to begin as asked for by Obama and the Democrats. So the correct explanation or better explanation of what happened this week would be something like the “temporary SNAP benefits buried in the Stimulus bill ran out this week since the Democrats and the Obama administration thought that their Stimulus Bill would have the economy turned around by now and the temporary SNAP benefits would no longer be needed”. Too bad the Stimulus bill failed like a Jimmy Carter administration.

Um, some lose their talking points about subsidizing the poor when scenerios happen like this week, 5 billion in snap benefits were cut from the working poor, yet, JP Morgan did not lose 1 of the 200 million dollars they are paid to oversee the program, those big agco subsides were not cut either...

There is a problem with a law when 100% of the Democrats vote for a law before reading it and then once they do read it they work 100% to exempt themselves from that same law. This is what we have in ACA. We hear speeches all the about something had to be done to bring down the cost of health care. This is about insurance policies and forcing people to buy something they do not need. Young people are being force to buy more insurance then they need to generate money to pay for people who will get subsidized policies. Health care costs are not going down. The losers are going to be the middle class and young people who are going to be asked to subsidize those considered poor. A noble but costly proposition to those who will pay the price.
