BUSINESSES ARE ALREADY LAYING PEOPLE OFF OR REDUCING PEOPLES HOURS FROM FULL TIME TO PART TIME.
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.
You have wonder why if this is such a bad thing why are the repubs so against it. This would be a big feather in their cap. Unless having had the act studied they are worried it might work and make them look foolish and out of touch again. I mean look who they parade out to attack it. Pailin.Bachman the Canadian,Cuban son of a,communist Cruz the three biggest buffoons they have.
The numbers don't work, sorry. Show me how the numbers work, because it is not even close. The administration has not shown one credible piece of evidence that this will lower premiums--to the contrary, all indicators show the opposite.
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.
gdog, it makes ME wonder if this is such a good thing WHY are there exemptions and WHY isn't EVERYONE included in Obamacare? Why did Congress (mostly democrats) push to exempt themselves from this "great" benefit.
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.
