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.

It seems I also remember that program getting "a little help from the right" in the form of the funds, that we had involuntarily paid into Medicare over the years being pillaged as seed money for ObamaCare.

Stillhere - I was looking at it from the standpoint that science and medical technology will, very soon, extend the lives for those that are able to afford the techniques, but only for those the techniques will be afforded to.

The political controlling forces around this planet are well aware of the ramifications of a 30% increase in productive (enjoyable) longevity. Why not come up with a program ahead of that time that insures the benefit would be 'managed'?

If that program could be disguised as a governmentally operated magnanimous effort (ObamaCare turned Single Payer, et al), when it's really anything but, all the better for the manipulators.

Ever considered the possible ulterior motives of ObamaCare? By this I mean even going beyond the "redistribution of wealth" theory for it's creation.

How about if it's already known, by some upper levels of power and influence, that we stand on the cusp of major disease elimination and revolutionary means of life extension? Muffy, Biff and the twins might have to share the world's beaches and a diminishing world food supply with more and more Joe ******** and his brats.

The well-heeled snobs can't have that and one way to prevent it is by having the government (which always answers to Muffy and Biff) takeover the healthcare system.

Ironically, Muffy and Biff had their bought-and-paid-for representative in the WH and the gang of crooks with which he surrounds himself, convince Joe ******* to demand, by voting, that such a system be brought to fruition.

Be careful what you wish for! They may kill you with it.

A recent study from the Commonwealth Fund found that more people with health insurance still can’t afford to seek treatment—mainly because they’re enrolled in higher deductible policies.

According to the study, about 23 percent of Americans with coverage are considered underinsured—up from 12 percent in 2003. That means roughly 31 million Americans who bought health insurance still have trouble affording treatment under their policies.

Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Health insurance premiums for plans sold on Obamacare’s health exchanges are about to get higher next year, according to a glimpse of rate proposals—some with double-digit increases—that the White House made public this week. Under the Affordable Care Act, insurers are required to make public any rate proposals that increase by at least 10 percent on the federal government’s website. Though premium rates vary significantly depending on the region, major carriers including UnitedHealthcare, Athena and Blue Cross Blue Shield have proposed rate increases for next year between 10 and 30 percent in a handful of states.

Some are even higher. For example, Blue Cross Blue Shield in Alabama proposes to raise its platinum plan (the highest tiered plan) by 71 percent next year. Obamacare has already taken heat for not yet making coverage more affordable.

They are souring under their own lack of merit and forethought. Perhaps if your side would listen in the first place instead of posturing, promising and then under delivering, your programs would stand a chance of working...so far it hasn't without casualties of those you claim to champion.

if i am not mistaken....who is gonna pony up that steep deductable as well as the unpaid premiums, fines and penalties that your loving democrats are heaping on your unforunate 40 million that are incapable of providing their own means without the nanny-state government pretending to hold them accountable. the unappreciative people that can't even show up on time to get their free cheese(healthcare insurance) are clamoring for the democrats to have pity and relieve them of one of the basic requirements of the law in which to somehow defray some of the enormous costs coming down the pike for americans that do the reponsible thing.... but the democrats already knew it would happen. they are not as economically stupid as their supporters. do the math OWO and get back to me. in the meantime why not help a brother out and share some those nifty things that you recently bragged about "working" for with some of those 40 million....i'll pass you by in the free soup line on my way to

OWO...it is not my "faux". you are barking up the wrong tree there fido. those numbers i quoated come from you and the U.S. Census bureau. so is you "faux" or is you real? as i have said before....it's all good til you gotta pay.

news outlets. but then again the hype is hardly ever worth the cost.

OWO....hate is such a strong word coming from your weak attack. prior to this law, which in fact hurts the middle class,(you know the one your party supposedly champions) most in the middle class were quite satisfied with what they either worked or directly paid for out of pocket. frankly the only ones that were falling down dead in streets were the gang members, hapless victims of crime and drug addicts. as i have stated before the only thing that changed with the law is the flow of money and the loss of benefits that many of the middle-calss and lower income folks enjoyed. based upon 2010 census numbers there were a little over 194 million americans between the working ages of 18 to 64 minus your claim of 40 million which i am certain contains ages outside of my quoted age span that are adversly affected by this law. hopefully you have been bright enough to be following the unfolding calamity that is your parties law. it is there in digital black and white as well as on many varied

Besides your dumbocrats were positively giddy over their handiwork. At the signing they reminded me of a proud child as they peered into the toilet bowl at their first successful poo-poo. Don't you remember that?
