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.

A federal health care official told Congress on Tuesday that 700,000 people had submitted applications through the federal and state health insurance marketplaces. But Sebelius said Wednesday that the administration has no “reliable data” for how many have successfully enrolled.

President Obama repeatedly assured Americans that after the Affordable Care Act became law, people who liked their health insurance would be able to keep it. But millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare, say experts, and the Obama administration has known that for at least three years.

Four sources deeply involved in the Affordable Care Act tell NBC News that 50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a “cancellation” letter.

BeRight the goal was FREE care for everyone that couldnt afford it or was too old to be covered under their parents coverage and no refusal of coverage for pre existing conditions !!! The utopia of health care!!

I guess I forgot: What was the goal of the Affordable Care Act?

So if one of the people paying nothing now goes to a doctor and gets a $500 out of pocket bill, do you believe they will be pleased?

This is a cut and paste comment from a health care shopper: can get a bronze policy (the cheapest one) for about 250 bucks a month. Okay, so I'm in the hole 3000 bucks a year. But that means I'm insured, right? Welllll, I have to meet a $6300.00 deductible before I'm even eligible for any payment from that plan. Okay, so I'm now $9300,00 in the hole. Now I'm all set, though I just paid 28% of my net income. Let's say I need surgery now, and that surgery costs $10,000 (not unusual). At least it's paid for, right! Well yeah, but only at 60% which means I'm another $4000,00 in the hole. I've now paid 36% of my total net income for the year SOLELY on healthcare."

Out of pocket costs for a family of four will be 12,700 dollars per year plus the monthly premiums of 300 dollars. Wow how can a family making 30,000 year pass up that good deal? This fiasco will fall apart and die the miserable death it deserves. Just another Liberal knee jerk law with

1200 bucks a year in premiums with the subsidy, and then another 6200 in deductibles if you need to use the insurance. So if you are going to need a lot more than 7500 dollars a year for medical expenses it could benefit you, if not you are just throwing away your premiums each month on a gamble. They might as well force everyone to play the lottery as well!

Beright. Look for the you tube videos that the group of reporters took Obamas policies and told them they were Romneys to the people exiting the polls that admitted to voting for Obama/Biden. They were upset that Romney came up with these policies and then they told them they were in fact Obamas. (drone killing Americans etc) Talk about jaws dropping open. This will wake you up on who voted for him !!! It is funny at first then it gets sickening how stupid they were. At one point the reporters convinced them to ban WATER for petes sake.

We deserve whatever comes out of Washington. American Voters are Stupid. A recent CNBC poll found more Americans oppose ObamaCare than oppose the Affordable Care Act. But………….. more Americans support ObamaCare than the Affordable Care Act.

Confused? That would be understandable given that these are two names for the same law.

When Oneill starts that scatter gun type of arguing and crucifying the republicans in general then I would say you guys made a valid point. Typical liberal tactic. Draw attention away from proven facts.

Well Fred I know that they vary from state to state but your statement in your letter seems all inclusive as you summarized by saying "a marked drop".

I wonder if this will be covered: A surgeon in China says he has constructed an extra nose out of a man's rib cartilage and implanted it under the skin of his forehead to prepare for a transplant in probably the first operation of its kind.

In lightly-regulated states, such as Ohio and Florida, premiums will likely soar since insurers here will no longer be able to exclude the sick and will have to offer more comprehensive policies.

But hey, were all in this together. LOL

Go ahead and Google “insurance premiums going down”

In Fred’s letter to the editor this morning he states “there has been a marked drop in insurance premiums since the implementation of the early stages of the Affordable Healthcare Act”. Where in the world is he getting this information from? The administration is able to point to the rates that are lower than they were expected to be by the Congressional Budget Office. But But But……………………………. But the bad news is that those rates they are bragging about are much higher than what people are currently paying! What a bunch of hooey.

In a break with many congressional Democrats and President Barack Obama, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) said Wednesday he would back a one-year delay of the individual mandate in the stopgap spending bill.

"There’s no way I could not vote for it,” he said at a Bloomberg Government breakfast. “It’s very reasonable and sensible."
