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.

Kendall I expect very little from you yet you always seem to lower the standard even further.

Looks like all that's left here is the socialist lefties, I suppose they don't have things like work to keep them from posting.

BTW.. If the threat of Ted Strickland's brand of socialism terrifies you sufficiently, I can provide a comprehensive list of countries that may provide an appropriate amount of anti-liberal conservatism for you to consider emulating. As a teaser: number one on the list is North Korea, number two is Afghanistan. If you need more, just ask.

Tiredofit: The unmitigated gall you display by invoking the memory of the servicemen and women who have fought for our country, as a kind of misguided justification for your attitude, is appalling. There are many of them who have, and do, disagree with you.

@Bigfoot- it is a sad thing when people like Tired would put our nation high on a pedestal of bones and not even realize it.

The US is a great nation, but it is also a great fluke of history and we are lucky for it. So many historical moments converged together with the right people and with the right concepts to create us. Our glory is that we have adapted with the times. Only a fool would think that the Founding Fathers would approve or recognize our nation the way it is now.

In all that bluster you never say why Socialism is evil. You incorrectly call it theft when it is not. You will not find any legitimate definition of Socialism that includes theft except from those that do not understand it.

There are no good or evil forms of govt, only how we humans use them to govern ourselves.

Of course there are some forms of govt that works better with human nature. Wisely, our nation has incorporated aspects of democracy, republicanism and even socialism to make us a great nation. I am sorry you do not see that Tired. I pity you.

Tired, you are ignorant because I have a "decent job" and pay my taxes.

You are a twit because I am one of those that served my country. You can save your drama for someone who cares.

Wow Tired, you are a pompous, ignorant little twit aren't you?

"You are far to young and inexperienced to understand that."

I lived when the USSR was still in existence. I studied the origins of Socialism, Republicanism and other forms of govt. This is why you are pompous to assume otherwise.

But hey. Karma right?

Tiredofit? What would you call coming into a foreign land and taking said land from the people living on it?

That was theft wasn't it?

This country was born out of an act of theft.

From whence you came so thou shalt return!

It sure is a lot worse than saying socialism isn't evil. Completely ignoring that we are allied with countries that are socialistic in nature.

Correction.

Tell me something. Those who fought for this country? Those who fought and died for the freedom we enjoy? You say that Kendall sullies their sacrifice?

What about those who wish to limit the freedom in this country that others are trying to attain for themselves?

There's a whole bunch of people in this country who act as if this country is theirs and theirs alone...everyone else unlike them is an imposter...even though most of them were born and raised American citizens.

Just for being different. Have no religion? Oh! You're evil! Love someone of the same sex? You're plotting to destroy this country...and you're evil.

Can you guess which voting block those limiters of freedom come from?

If that aint taking a huge dump on the sacrifices those who fought and died for ALL OF US...then I don't know what is.

It sure is a lot worse than calling socialism evil. Completely ignoring that we are allied with countries that are socialistic in nature.

You*****on the graves of those that fought for this country by saying Socialism is ok. I don't expect too much from you but even with that said, I am amazed by that

Tiredofit

I don't expect you to understand. You wouldn't. But if you ever get a decent job and start to be robbed by Liberal politicians so they can buy themselves power, perhaps you will see it, however I doubt it.

Tiredofit

Oh but that is where you are WRONG, there IS something EVIL about socialism, its called THEFT. You are far to young and inexperienced to understand that. Stealing from one to give to another is a romantic notion to those that are on the receiving end, however, its evil to steal.

Which came first? The dependents or the dependency?

What should have the govt done back during the Great Depression? Let those that couldn't survive die off? Or perhaps instead of a little controlled socialism, perhaps a little anarchy would have been better for those who had no where to go?

There is nothing evil in socialism, no more than there is righteous in republicanism.

the fact that people WILL become dependent on handouts like the bears in Yellowstone is not an indicator that its the RIGHT thing to do.

Posted 21 days ago.

Tiredofit

So? We have caused people to be dependent on Government YAH for socialism the fact that they are dependent on some things, well that's just a fine excuse to make them even MORE dependent. Nice logic

Posted 21 days ago.

Kendall78

I don't know about that, some socialistic type programs got started quickly and we wouldn't know what to do without them today.

Tiredofit

Those penalties will be around 10% in a short while, just watch

Tiredofit

Yeah, socialism takes time, be patient
