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.

i think it has been proven that mandated pay scales may work well in government classified positions where the government can unilaterally increase its revenue by taxation or borrowing whether directly or indirectly. private businesses as you know do not have the same ability. our governemnt through its monetary policies could reduce inflation to the point where all americans could rise above the inlated poverty level. there iare a few things needed that you can't currently legislate and that is motivation, initiative, and personal responsibility. even with the ACA which was sold as a means of having all pay for health insurance, we see that those that draw assistance now will still get free health care. that kind of defeats the purpose, don't you think? also, we are still going to pay those that we pay for now. it's just a realignment of the revenue stream. different day...same B.S.

asknot, good evening. regarding wal-mart, please consider this. in 2010 wal-mart corporation paid $7.1 billion(32.4% tax rate) in income taxes. using 2013 store numbers of 4,135 times your democratic leaning figure of $1,000,000.00 per store in cost to the taxpayer equals $4.135 billion. thereby netting the government approx. $3 billion in revenue plus the savings of unemployment benefits as well as full welfare benefits. consider that G.G paid zero taxes on % billion in U.S. profits. this was all due to a huge write-off loss from the G.E. Capitol branch of the corporation. wal-mart employs 1.4 million americans at a salary rate above even California's most liberal minimum wage. quite franky it could be said that these 1.4 million workers could or would find other jobs if their current employment situation is that unbearable. in addition, consider the magnitude of the problems that we currently have if those 1.4 million folks were not working and paying taxes into the system. i think

Thank you, and good morning to you,lts. it seems you are quoted when one chooses not to, or cannot 'voice' ones' own thought for whatever reason.kinda like a surrogate for emotional expression.(; If you have a resource for a behavioral explanation,you may find it interesting.this will be part of the new aca application of coverage, by the way.

moderation, good morning. to answer your question, yes i do. it is easy enough for me to recall much of what i post but for someone to either remember, store or even take the time to peruse through past posts in all of the topics would be in my opinion remarkable.

asknot, i agree that sometimes it would be nice for him to be more forthcoming, but then again most of us control to different degrees the information we xhare about ourselves. he and i have had very few extended conversations but he has always provided verifiable information. in that he is guiltless. i am saddened that you did not fully appreciate the comedy classic that is Malibus Most Wanted. it is a deliciously decadent movie treat that we enjoy along with Dumb and Dumber (the original), Young Frankenstein (pronounced frankensteen), Blazing Saddles, Tommy Boy and Animal House. sometimes, actually amny times, complete lunacy is the ultimate escape from the sometimes dreary state of affairs we find ourselves exposed too in this day and time.

asknot, prompt and prod as you might but as B-Rad said in Malibus Most Wanted..." I y'am's what I y'am's"...and so shall R1KRA8 be.

All along the conservatives said this Obamacare would raise the price of insurance coverage. The Libs said it would not. The conservatives said you can’t offer a rainbow of new services and keep the costs the same. Well, people are finding out that when their old coverage gets cancelled, as predicted, their costs are going up.

What a pack of hooey by the libs.

And the Administration continues to grant more waivers and considers many more.

When you consider the numbers in the groups that were already granted waivers, that number is larger than the numbers who are expected to sign up. LOL

Thank God Obama didn't actually say, "There will be no Death Panels, PERIOD."

That way, when it's shown that there are, he won't have to say that we just "misunderstood" or, because of the Sequester, we now can't afford NOT TO have them.

Isn't he a 'Sweetie'?

Too bad we don't have Michelle Malkin serving as our UN Ambassador (at least).

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.

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).
