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.

Sorry for the repeat.

It could apply...but I was thinking more along the lines of "Superstition" and "Voodoo Healthcare" that the Democrats have so handily crafted but blame lack of participation by the Republicans for its disasterous roll-out and implementation. It's rewrite or ultimate demise should be a foregone conclusion but sometimes many confuse failure when advertised as success.

The U.S.’s biggest health insurer is considering pulling out of Obamacare, a month after saying it would expand its presence in the program. UnitedHealth Group Inc. is scaling back marketing efforts for plans it’s selling this year under the Affordable Care Act, and may quit the market entirely in 2017, because the business has proven to be more costly than expected. It’s an abrupt shift from October, when the health insurer said it was planning to sell coverage in 11 new markets next year, bringing its total to 34. The company also cut its 2015 earnings forecast.

A pull-back would deal a significant blow to President Barack Obama’s signature domestic policy achievement. While UnitedHealth has been slower than some of its rivals to sell Obamacare policies since new government-run marketplaces for the plans opened in late 2013, the announcement may indicate that other insurers are struggling also.

So when the Cadillac tax is repealed it will be the Dems passing a tax cut for the rich. LOL

The great thing about the Cadillac Tax is that in the Rush to get the Obamacare passed the Dems thought they had snuck in a clause to wack the rich again forgetting that the Unions has held their health care plan for ransom and had the biggest Cadillac plans ever. Whoops!

Exactly, "Obtuseone" misses the point. Unions are saying if we dont get special treatment, we will call for repeal. Talk about self centered greed and trying to avoid ones "fair share" of a law they championed

teh funny thing about taxes is that no one really wants to pay them. i love the giidyness of the democrats when they proclaim they have a program to solve all of your woes...but they will only tax the other folks and not you....well...when it is implemented...hands on face...oh no...you get socked with the tax. now it is time to scream that you will kick the sob's out of office if they don't remove you from those being taxed....i love the show...it is really more of a play than a show. we are the unwilling, some of us at least, participants. the exemptions began flying before the ink was even applied to the tax law. just remember the arrangement of all of the democrats as Obama signed that piece of crap into law. how much spent energy could we recoup from all of the energy the lawmakers have spent back-peddeling from this collossal failure.

so why won't the Unions follow the law and pay their fair share of their Caddilac Plan Tax? are they above the law? should they somehow not be required to fund those that need the help that the ACA promised? you should be lambasting them for their uppityness and not being willing to be patriotic...remember paying taxes is being patriotic...and don;t forget the ACA was passed as a "TAX" not an entitlement...hmmm..perhaps we should have had Hillary sign the law...we all know how much weight her signature carries...don;t we?

Or do you just want to keep your foot on the necks working americans ?

You have to confront power with power abby . And youre so fond of agreements , they apparently had one . And yes I support unions and every other worker who is getting shafted . Its proven that a union shop will raise the wages of workers who provide ancillary services to said shop . Higher wages are good for the workers and the economy !

OWO...be honest with yourself for once and admit that the Unions are simply looking after the Union Workers...it's ok to be truthful...thats why there are in the employment business...right???? the Unions were expecting a carve out of their responsibility within the guidelines of the ACA...which you have very vocally supported...why should they not pay for thir "Cadillac Plan"? are they special? they think so and will exert a threat to achieve their goal...not really surprised...they seem to be good at that.

And abby , contrary to your post ,in my union days I never saw anything other than wanting whats fair and just and supporting our union brothers . I believe some things were neccessary in order to throw off the criminal yoke and strangle hold some capitalist had on poor working people ! Again , depends on ones perspective , I's say if your family worked 80 hrs a week in a mine with little or no hope of ever bettering their lot you might not have the attitude you have !

MOT ???? How typical ! I dont think most care what a greedy ,ego centric republinut thinks because it always comes down to your me,me,me attitude . There are other people in this world and I hope you need their help some day !
