BUSINESSES ARE ALREADY LAYING PEOPLE OFF OR REDUCING PEOPLES HOURS FROM FULL TIME TO PART TIME.
Band-Aids and Aspirin! Get used to it.
the affordable care act will be the holy trinity of the middle class with social security and medicare. and that's why repubs hate it. they fight for big corporations and big pharma because they stuff their pockets with cash. they're scared to death that people will love this because they'll lose the house in the midterms and any chance of taking the senate. and people will love it. they never say, "well how about we change this or that to make it even better." they're not interested in making it better, then just want to get rid of it. Obama was re-elected after enacting it so quit with the lies about people don't want it. they want to deny 40 million people health care. they don't want people with pre-existing conditions to be able to get healthcare. the congressional budget office has already said it will save one trillion dollars over ten years. they're doing this for another reason. they want history to say that president barrack Obama was a failure. in my opinion there's one word that describes them perfectly (and one word I can print here), they are despicable.
That is pure BS. Obumacare is just another thing that is going to sink the american taxpayer. Obumacare is going to takeaway coverage that we have and he has already told two lies one being we can keep our doctor the other was we don't have to give up our current insurance. On top of that you can be fined if you don't have insurance. Whats that going to do to someone who already down and out and can't afford the insurance or pay the fine? Let the insurance staya the way it is and let businesses do what they do. You or anyone else can show me where the govt involvement has made a profit. You have to look at the stimulus money thats been wasted to feed bankrupt companies that will have to be paid for by many generations to come. Some people still have their heads shoved up their butts and can't see that this liar and imposter posing as a president. What happened to open and honest govt he said we would have when the first thing he did was seal his records?
Most people are against it because once a government program is enacted, it is usually here forever. Just like the telephone tax from the Pony Express days. Most hard-working Americans are happy with their medical care. Most low-information deadbeats who suck from the government teet want anything free that they can get. Going to the doctor will be like going to the license branch and the welfare office. Standing in line with every scab in town waiting for a freebie whether they need it or not. (kinda like the days of the FREE gub'mint cheese!)
If I wasn't already receiving VA and Medicaid, this would be the first opportunity Id have in years to get Health Insurance with out being turned down for Pre Existing Conditions.
I will never give that up for my self or others who have been denied healthcare too long.
Long Live Obamacare!
If pre-existing condition limitations were the only reason people could not buy health insurance, why did we not simply implement a law that requires insurance companies to insure regardless of pre-x? Even if government would have to subsidize premiums for those individuals, we'd be far better off than this massive government subsidy they are creating.
Can someone please explain what part of the ACA is affordable? Premiums have skyrocketed for everyone. Employers are laying off and reducing hours and shifting insurance costs to employees. Individual plans have deductibles that are now obscene.
The fact that US health care costs are twice the cost of any other country is where we needed to focus. Making the cost of health care affordable should be first and foremost to making everyone pay the cost of health care.
If you think the government can better manage our health care through socialized medicine I'd suggest you look at the fraud, waste and mismanagement of the current government agencies.
Again, it's to place a huge chunk of the U S economy under government control. Instead of fixing a thing or two that needed fixing, ODumbo and his slow-witted followers prefer to destroy the greatest healthcare system in the history of the world in order to play "Santa Claus " to the lazy leeches of this country. If this is a demonstration of his "genius".
in order to make this work young healthy people have got to get on board and sign up. they're contributing to social security which they won't receive for decades but that's what funds social security. it's the same with the affordable care act. and sooner or later, we all get sick. no one gets out alive. people of all ages get cancer, diabetes, and many other afflictions. so it's very important that we all, everyone, have healthcare. and the young buying into the aca will help make it affordable by keeping costs down. once this is going strong and people love it, you will never again hear a repub call it obamacare. no one should go bankrupt and lose their homes because they get sick.
Commoncitizen, how did they exempt themselves?
I hear this argument all the time, but I have yet to get a decent response.
btw, I know the answer to this, and I know what the legislation was that the Glenn Beck-types are referring to. And, it's not an exemption in any sense of the word. But, I'd be interested to hear what Commoncitizn thinks it is.
It seems like the republicans have forgotten how much health insurance has increased over the last fifteen years,pre " Obama care". I know mine has increased nearly 300% in this time span. This is by letting insurance companies do whatever they want with no regulation. Despite all the complaining by the republicans and their supporters where is their great plan to help us with these costs?
FIRE THEM ALL! IF THEY ARE AN INCUMBANT, VOTE FOR WHOMEVER IS RUNNING AGAINST THEM. IF YOU DON'T, THEN YOU ARE THE FOOL.
