But we have to pass the [health care] bill so that you can find out whats in it....
So promised Nancy Pelousi and now that the KOmmies have had a chance to finally see what is in ObamaCare, they are in a state of shock since they have FINALLY discovered that ObamaCare STINKS bigtime as you can see in this THREAD, "Obama and Dems may have jost lost their most stalwart supporter with this Obamacare ruling." Gee! And you are only just NOW finding out how horrible ObamaCare is? Don't worry, I'm sure you can find a way to blame the Republicans for foisting ObamaCare upon you. So let us now watch the KOmmies moan and groan about the ObamaCare they used to ardently desire in Bolshevik Red, while the commentary of your humble correspondent, wondering if ObamaCare will cover Pelousi's botox treatments, in in the [barackets]:
Obama and Dems may have jost lost their most stalwart supporter with this Obamacare ruling
[Too bad the fine print was at the bottom of page 1724 of the 2000+ page ObamaCare bill.]
I was a stalwart all through the past four years plus, never wavering when others jumped on and off the bandwagon. But this NYT article just crushed me like a grape:
[A crushed grape and now you "wine" about ObamaCare.]
The Obama administration adopted a strict definition of affordable health insurance on Wednesday that will deny federal financial assistance to millions of Americans with modest incomes who cannot afford family coverage offered by employers.
In deciding whether an employers health plan is affordable, the Internal Revenue Service said it would look at the cost of coverage only for an individual employee, not for a family. Family coverage might be prohibitively expensive, but federal subsidies would not be available to help buy insurance for children in the family.
The policy decision came in a final regulation interpreting ambiguous language in the 2010 health care law.
[SURPRISE!!! There is no "affordable" in the Affordable Care Act.]
I had been banking on being able to finally get health care starting January 1, 2014. Three days over the past few years have been especially meaningful (after, of course, Election Night '08 and the January 2009 inauguration): the day the PPACA law passed, the day the SCOTUS mostly upheld it, and this past Election Day (which seemed to seal its prospects against ever being repealed, though at the moment I'm less sure of that).
[You forgot to include the meaningful day when you suffered ObamaCare sticker shock.]
My wife works as a primary school special ed teacher. Her job provides decent insurance for her with no premium. To add me and our kids to the policy, though, would cost $577 a month out of a paycheck that right now is only $2400 a month, take home, and does not stretch super far as it is. This is just plain unaffordable for us. Yet the news is, we are shit out of luck.
[Welcome to the UNAFFORDABLE Care Act.]
Almost insulting are the paltry breadcrumbs found in the "silver lining":
Under the law, people who go without insurance will generally be subject to tax penalties. In a separate proposed regulation issued on Wednesday, the Internal Revenue Service said that the uninsured children and spouse of an employee would be exempt from the penalties if the cost of coverage for the entire family under an employers plan was more than 8 percent of household income.
So rather than helping me get my family covered, you just won't punish us because we can't afford it? Thank you Obama.
[Yup! You sure are sh*t out of luck.]
Democrats had better be careful. It looks like the Pubs might be right on what a clusterf*ck this will be.
[Remember, NOT ONE "Pub" voted for ObamaCare.]
Indeed. I am beyond livid here...despairing, really. How can this be happening?!?
[It is happening because like your fellow socialists, you are a naive IDIOT KOmmie SlackerInc. And now to the other disillusioned KOmmies...]
That ruling just plain sucks and the 'silver lining' ain't that silvery either.
[The ruling sucks? How about the ENTIRE ObamaCare law?]
My wife has not been too crazy about Obamacare and I have defended it to the death. I hope this thing is not going down the toilet like the Republicans predicted.
[It IS going down the toilet just like the Republicans predicted.]
The way its going it will end up as zero change other than mandating health insurance - not only did we not get Single/payer public option but those of us that don't want to hand over chunks of cash to the health insurance will be penalized. The sad thing is that this was all very predictable.
[The sad thing is that the DEMOCRATS passed ObamaCare without even reading it.]
But if you can't afford insurance you still end up paying the fine, subsidizing someone else's insurance while getting none of your own. How is that even remotely fair or right? It makes things actually WORSE for a lot of people.
[But we have to pass the [health care] bill so that you can find out whats in it....]
[And a death panel has ruled that you are already brain dead.]
Where is the "Affordable" in the Affordable Care Act?
[Gone With the Wind.]
F*CK WHOEVER TOOK THIS DECISION AND I HOPE THEY GET SOME DAMN VIRUS UP THEIR ASS THAT MAKES THEM PUKE AND POOP NON STOP FOR A WEEK
[Oh, and you have to pay big bucks for mental health coverage under ObamaCare.]
But but ObamaCare is Freeeeeeee!
When the whole thing collapses, the DUmmies may even wake up and join forces with us against the real enemy- the greedy global elite and the corrupt governments they own.
Notice how NOT ONE state ObamaCare exchange has been set up or is even close to being set up?
I’m not counting on the DUmmies much. As soon as the administration comes up with a snazzy slogan and a means of blaming the mess on republicans, the idiots will fall in line.
I can’t get to the DU link.
With all of the people who voted for and passed this law, you'd think that one of them would have read the damn thing. This was a very big deal. wouldn't at least one of them want to make sure that for once they got something right?
Gee! And I thought all those complaints about the Democrats not reading their own bill before voting for it was nothing but a bunch of "rightwing" talking points. Now you are finding out what is wrong with voting for a bill "in order to find out what's in it."
Stalwarts, planters warts -- ya ain't covered!
Typical retarded liberal. Health CARE is easy to get for everyone at anytime. It's illegal to deny health CARE to anyone based on the ability to pay.
It's INSURANCE we are talking about.
You can’t fix stupid and you can’t fix deeply, depressingly disillusioned....
BTW you really do need to look into getting a twitter feed for the FUnnies. Your readership will explode.
This is absolutely hysterical! I love it! Best fun I’ve had all day.
And guess what DUmmies? Your president and his grifter wife are FRAUDS!
How’s that for insult to injury?
So when the working Left see their costs go up, coverage decrease all in the name of taking care of free loaders and illegals, the fur should really start to fly.
and the Care part of Obamacare hasn't even started
I’m torn between intense schadenfreude over these fools finding out the truth, and being truly gobsmacked that they really were, no kidding, that stupid to believe that the PPACA was going to work. Unbelievable.
Oh and my good plan was dropped, replaced with a cr@ppy plan that is $180 more a month... and add in the payroll tax increase...
What happens if neither the states nor the federal government are able to set up state ObamaCare exchanges? I don’t see any states close to setting this up because of the complexity and the feds would have the same trouble too.
