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.

How many of the "they(s)" are bankrupt from trying "to do it"? Whose word are you accepting that their health care system is currently better than ours, because of "it". How are we sure that there's not a graduated system of care there, relegated according to class status (wealth) just the same as there is here?

Obamacare is much more than a web site: The Ohio State Medical Association estimates that UnitedHealthcare has canceled contracts with hundreds of Ohio doctors effective Jan. 1. The cancellations include most of the orthopedic surgeons in Dayton, the only hand specialty practice serving the Cincinnati area, a large gastroenterology practice with 2,500 patients that also provides most of the inpatient care at five Cincinnati-area hospitals, and the largest practice of retina specialists serving 600 UnitedHealthcare members, many with macular degeneration, in central and southern Ohio. In Connecticut, UnitedHealthcare is terminating about 2,250 physicians, including 810 specialists, Feb. 1, said Mark Thompson, executive director of the Fairfield County Medical Association, prompting the medical associations in Fairfield and Hartford counties to file a federal lawsuit to stop the cancelations. In New York City, UnitedHealthcare's contracts with about 2,100 physicians will be canceled In

As if the millions of Americans set to lose their existing health insurance coverage as a result of Obamacare was not bad enough, a recent survey by Watchdog**** has found that many top hospitals across the nation will no longer be accessible to the average person with a new “eligible” plan. In fact, many major hospitals are being excluded from Obamacare coverage altogether, which means that millions of previously covered individuals will have to settle for subpar care at other “in-network” facilities.

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.

Until the heading of WTF: Obamacare spporters are bing told to NOT SEND people to the heathcare.gov web site for fear it may crash.

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.

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

asknot, in my area a local group of doctors have been slowly but surely buying up the local hospitals and they currently operate under one umbrella. many regional hospitals are finding it hard to stay afloat for various reasons. one thing that many do not focus on is the high cost of higher education. the anwer is not another d*** government subsidy. the costs associated with becoming primary care physicians as well as the multitude specialists are astronomical. not to mention the costs that medical caregivers pay to join partnerships. that is another story unto itself. the insurance companies are the demons dejour, but soon enough under the ACA, you can bet your bottom dollar they will be just like Social Security...broke and bleeding money. the politicians are good at many things but unfortunately managing our country much less our healthcare system is not one of them. god help us.

asknot...thank you..i really enjoyed the video as well as the gentleman that presented it. the video is not for the slow mind. he flies through the information fairly quickly. he brings up some great points along with interesting statistics. as he said the "problem" is complex and there is no short answer. in the end the goal is to make it free for some, affodable for others and finally a drain on our government. i won;t even call the government taxpayers...we are more akin to borrowers than payers for the most part. the ACA does not address many of the problems that we face and should not even be considered a basis on which to build. the democrats think it is better than sliced bread and they are in charge so give me a slice and butter me up. at least i can eat.
