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.

My deductibles went up dramatically. Some of my medications that were covered are no longer covered at the same level. My heart specialist is now out of network.

BTW - If you don't believe the story that I posted from Facebook, that puts you in league with ON-MY-WAY-OUT Harry Reid. He thinks they're all liars to that have been very negatively affected by the financials of ObummerCare.

"compromised"? How about, had nothing to do with? When you are completely shut out of the creation of legislation, by an unbending Democratic majority, they don't need your compromises. They just steamroll their way through. Which is what they did.

Why does it matter to you one way or another, ohwiseone? I thought you and your ilk was busting with pride over the completely unilateral creation of ObummerCare.

(CONT) "But Bob Beckle & his ilk sit & mock people like me because the sham that is Obamacare helps "underpriviledged". Huh - illegals & poor people already had access to free health care. Now, we're paying for more illegals & welfare recipients to get better health care for nothing. And people like my husband & I, who own our own business, are going to go bankrupt if I get sick again. Then again, maybe that's for the best. People on welfare have a better standard of living thanks to that *******."

THAT, FOLKS, SAYS ENOUGH ABOUT OBAMACARE!!

ohwiseone - interesting reading found on my Facebook page.

"I'm a stage 3C breast cancer survivor - 3 years out. I lost my excellent insurance to High Highness' "affordable" health care. We will now pay 3 times as much for less than 1/3 the benefits and a TWENTY THOUSAND DOLLAR deductible. So, insurance pays for nothing until after we've paid $20,000 - per year. Heaven forbid I get sick December 3rd - if I'm not out of the hospital before the New Year, we have to pay $40,000. To say I hate that man is an understatement."

CAUTION, BERIGHT! If you show ohwiseone from where "you got your info", his next standard tactic is to squeal like a pig about not "using your own words".

Why are more than 60% of Americans against Obamacare? And why did so many Democrats run away from it during the last election?

Why did all the Democrats vote for Obamacare before reading the legislation?

Why did at least 2 prominent Democrats ask for bribes before agreeing to vote for it?

NasCarNut: Do you think everything you describe in your last post will be free and the health care companies will just roll over and eat the costs? You must be one of the voters Gruber talked about.

Wait until the people find out about that box they have to check of on their tax form.

And here are a few numbers on how the GOP plan would impact consumers who are already benefiting from Obamacare:

Approximately 105 million Americans could pay more for preventive care, including nearly 47 million women.105 million Americans could be subject to lifetime caps.Up to 17 million children with pre-existing conditions could be denied coverage or charged more.More than 7.1 million seniors and people with disabilities who reached the donut hole would have to spend billions more on their prescription drugs.Up to 129 million Americans with pre-existing conditions could be charged more, or denied coverage, which is prohibited beginning in 2014. In total, an estimated 43 percent of people with individual market insurance have a pre-existing condition.

nder the GOP Healthcare Plan of repealing the Affordable Care Act, insurance companies would be put back in the driver’s seat, allowing them to:

Kick kids off their family healthcare plans;Drop consumers for having a pre-existing conditions;Refuse to cover preventive care for those with plans;Insurance companies could even overcharge consumers just to boost their profits;And so much more...

Republican leaders from Ted Cruz to John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and Marco Rubio have come together unanimously behind a single healthcare plan: repeal the Affordable Care Act and bring back the old system where insurance companies ran the show. That’s it — their entire plan for fixing the old broken healthcare system, is to go back to the old broken healthcare system.

I don't remember any Republicans voting for ACA. ACA is exactly as the Democrats and Jonathan Gruber wanted it. Are you one of the stupid voters Gruber refers to?

Sen. Chuck Schumer upbraided his own party Tuesday for pushing the Affordable Care Act through Congress in 2010.

While Schumer emphasized during a speech at the National Press Club that he supports the law and that its policies "are and will continue to be positive changes," he argued that the Democrats acted wrongly in using their new mandate after the 2008 election to focus on the issue rather than the economy at the height of a terrible recession.

"After passing the stimulus, Democrats should have continued to propose middle-class-oriented programs and built on the partial success of the stimulus, but unfortunately Democrats blew the opportunity the American people gave them," Schumer said. "We took their mandate and put all of our focus on the wrong problem—health care reform."

Well Chuck , it is still a problem!
