Watch the costs of the premiums double or triple or more next year.


Thats what has been going on for the last decade.

Welcome back to reality, How was your trip?


What trip? I was stating fact. You have a problem with that because why? What's the friggin name of this act "Affordable"? It won't be.

Do ya get me now? Or are you too busy trolling your head in the sand?


On what do you base this argument?


I don't need obama to take care of me I have been doing good on my own


You've been doing well. Superman does good.

It is the second worst social program only behind a welfare system that rewards not working and penalizes that that work.


Its nothing more than a Ponzi scheme that was sold with lie after lie. All it has done is redistribute wealth which is what this fraud president intended all along.

In my opinon

People hated Government programs such as Social Security and Medicare when they were implemented letting seniors stay in their homes and having help with the medical. Everyone should be entitled to an affordable health care system in this country without caps, pre-existing condition exclusions, and reasonable priced prescriptions. I am going to copy and paste all the comments on this topic and repost them in a couple years when it is up and running smoothly. I have paid ridiculously high premiums for years with an extremely high deduct able and no prescription drug coverage and I am willing to see where it goes, I am saving money, So go at it.

believe it

And I am going to copy and paste your comment in a couple years when this country is in even more shambles and insurance costs continue to go up and everyone pissed off about Obamacare.


Please do, At least you will have some sort of substance to add as opposed to offering no facts at all/.

One of the major issues with these programs is there is no oversight or accountability. These programs are abused by people that know how to work this system. I personally know someone who is doing this.


Social security was meant for working people to PAY into so they could retire comfortably. Our government has systematically ran that whole operation into the ground by giving away that money to people who didn't pay a single dime into it! The biggest Ponzi scheme ever assembled, and it's our American Government! Go Figure...(this has been going on way before Obama happened)


Where is the check box for "Too early to tell"?


Finally! tired of having these free loading moochers abusing the medical system. The reason everyone is mad is because they have to pay for said services instead of taxpayers footing the bill.

You may have a few less dollars for Wal-Mart but Im glad you are finally paying for yourselves.


does the word subsidies mean anything? We are still footing the bill for freeloaders. Money don't grow on trees.

believe it

Exactly. Everyone must think these subsidies just come magically. All it is is another tax on the upper and middle class. Everyone needs to be equal...socialism at its finest.

You, my friend, are exactly right. EXACTLY. Another tax and more socialism. The Obama administration is a complete and utter joke. Your 'celebrity' president and his fine, oblivious cabinet. A total joke. and it makes me sicker to KNOW that next will be Hillary. You think this is bad? Just wait.


Bingo, I couldn't agree more with your comment David.


Is it really such a bad thing that there are people out there that want everyone to have access to potentially life-saving medicine? I mean what horrible people, that have empathy for others. Who are they to care about people they don't know!?


Feel free to pay my share


You really don't want to help people that much? I guess what's in your mind differs greatly from your username. Last time I checked, we were a first-world civilized country. But I guess there are people out there that value their money more than the well-being of others.

I now have insurance thanks to Obamacare, how dare you call me a free loading moocher! I have paid my taxes for over 30 years and never took anything. Now, do to some circumstances, I am out of work and it has enabled me to see a doctor and try to do my best to keep myself healthy. How dare you judge everyone!!!!

believe it

If you don't mind sharing, how much are you paying per month?


Obama is an A**hole and the "Affordable Care Act" is anything but affordable.


I hope it was just a April fools joke , but read michelle obama was wanting to run for prez and have obama run for vice prez .....Rumors are heating up that Michelle Obama will edge out Hillary Clinton for the Democrat nomination for president in the upcoming 2016 race for the White House. How’s that for scary, eh?


If they want to revamp the health care system why don't they go with what they can charge for a over all procedure... hospital stay... ect.


Obama destroys the healthcare system for just a couple million people. 30+ million were supposedly uninsured. And he celebrates about 7.1 mil? I wanna see how many paid, how many HAD insurance before, how many YOUNG which is whats supposed to keep this law afloat signed up, how many illegals and how many medicaid. But we seem to not get a straight answer on these questions.

believe it

I read a stat that said out of the 7.1 million who signed up that 23% didn't have insurance before that, so 77% of the people already had insurance. That's a pretty telling stat right there.

David Deerest.

Not to mention all of us 'old men' who are paying for 'birth control'. BECAUSE WE NEED IT...
