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.

Asknot - When you express; "Instead of just whining about ACA and posting titles of books/websites that anyone can google and find to justify their own beliefs. Let's hear a thought on what we should do INSTEAD of ACA." I HAVE A QUESTION.

Why did the Obamanites roll into the WH, with both houses of congress under their arms, and immediately act like the country was burning down for lack of 15% (A DISTINCT MINORITY) of the people not having health care coverage? THEN, while crafting their witch's brew to take control of 18% of our national economy, they unabashedly blocked ANY republican input on the subject.

Now, sore winners (such as yourself) make laudatory statements like, "Let's hear a thought on what we should do INSTEAD of ACA." I've got news for you, Bud. It's too late. You've done the damage.

If you want to talk about SNAP and EBT, start your own Forum Topic. We are trashing Obmamacare on this one.

The Snap cuts for the working poor was Obama’s fault since the benefits that Libs call "cuts" were only temporary to begin as asked for by Obama and the Democrats. So the correct explanation or better explanation of what happened this week would be something like the “temporary SNAP benefits buried in the Stimulus bill ran out this week since the Democrats and the Obama administration thought that their Stimulus Bill would have the economy turned around by now and the temporary SNAP benefits would no longer be needed”. Too bad the Stimulus bill failed like a Jimmy Carter administration.

Um, some lose their talking points about subsidizing the poor when scenerios happen like this week, 5 billion in snap benefits were cut from the working poor, yet, JP Morgan did not lose 1 of the 200 million dollars they are paid to oversee the program, those big agco subsides were not cut either...

There is a problem with a law when 100% of the Democrats vote for a law before reading it and then once they do read it they work 100% to exempt themselves from that same law. This is what we have in ACA. We hear speeches all the about something had to be done to bring down the cost of health care. This is about insurance policies and forcing people to buy something they do not need. Young people are being force to buy more insurance then they need to generate money to pay for people who will get subsidized policies. Health care costs are not going down. The losers are going to be the middle class and young people who are going to be asked to subsidize those considered poor. A noble but costly proposition to those who will pay the price.

Asknot - As you follow Obama down the path to ruin, you're going to have "options".

Those options will be called a Single Payer health care program...and you're NOT going to like it.

I am impressed the Oniel has a firm grasp of the ACA even though those in the media don't get it. Is is also amazing that Harry Reid refuses to put his staff into the exchanges at the same time he promotes the exchnages. More waivers are granted daily for friends of Obmama but he tells us that the exchanges are the best thing since sliced watermellon.

and six people have already signed up.

1. Premiums will go up for many people. WHY? First, Obamacare requires all health insurance plans to meet certain standards. They call these standards “Essential Benefits.” While some view this as protecting consumers, the protection comes at a price. Second, the policies don’t have any spending caps. While there may be good policy reasons for this rule, it comes at a significant cost Third, health insurance companies can’t charge more if you have a pre-existing condition. While such a rule helps those who previously were uninsurable, it also comes with a cost

2. Many people will lose their current insurance

3. You don't have to buy through the exchanges

4. Obamacare is immensely complicated. Most who voted for it never read it.

5. The exchanges offer limited choice of doctors. Many people will lose contact with their family physicians.

What is interestging about the last post is that you have to fill out an application before you can look at health policy pricing.

So someone just looking for information is now included in this "great rush" to sign up.

I think we are bending the facts just a little to put lipstick on a pig.

A federal health care official told Congress on Tuesday that 700,000 people had submitted applications through the federal and state health insurance marketplaces. But Sebelius said Wednesday that the administration has no “reliable data” for how many have successfully enrolled.

President Obama repeatedly assured Americans that after the Affordable Care Act became law, people who liked their health insurance would be able to keep it. But millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare, say experts, and the Obama administration has known that for at least three years.

Four sources deeply involved in the Affordable Care Act tell NBC News that 50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a “cancellation” letter.

So if one of the people paying nothing now goes to a doctor and gets a $500 out of pocket bill, do you believe they will be pleased?

This is a cut and paste comment from a health care shopper: can get a bronze policy (the cheapest one) for about 250 bucks a month. Okay, so I'm in the hole 3000 bucks a year. But that means I'm insured, right? Welllll, I have to meet a $6300.00 deductible before I'm even eligible for any payment from that plan. Okay, so I'm now $9300,00 in the hole. Now I'm all set, though I just paid 28% of my net income. Let's say I need surgery now, and that surgery costs $10,000 (not unusual). At least it's paid for, right! Well yeah, but only at 60% which means I'm another $4000,00 in the hole. I've now paid 36% of my total net income for the year SOLELY on healthcare."

Out of pocket costs for a family of four will be 12,700 dollars per year plus the monthly premiums of 300 dollars. Wow how can a family making 30,000 year pass up that good deal? This fiasco will fall apart and die the miserable death it deserves. Just another Liberal knee jerk law with

1200 bucks a year in premiums with the subsidy, and then another 6200 in deductibles if you need to use the insurance. So if you are going to need a lot more than 7500 dollars a year for medical expenses it could benefit you, if not you are just throwing away your premiums each month on a gamble. They might as well force everyone to play the lottery as well!
