Skip to comments.Five reasons Americans already love ObamaCare.....(opinion from FOX News)
Posted on 10/02/2013 9:42:56 AM PDT by Beave Meister
Theres a reason Republicans have been rushing to try and defund the Affordable Care Act before October 1, when major sections of the law take effect.
Republicans know what polls show that most Americans dont know whats in ObamaCare, but when told what the law actually includes, a strong majority support the law.
Once state health insurance exchanges take effect, and premiums for all Americans go down, Republicans know the law will only become more popular and harder to repeal.
As Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said, It's a lot harder to undo something than it is to stop it in the first place.

Poll after poll shows that people oppose it.
Don’t kid yourself... fox is progressive today.
Bizarre, because there’s been no mass outpouring of support for this law, and most people - both doctors and patients - are shocked by the new costs.
Loving OBayMeCare is like loving the Holocaust, IMO; same ole; same ole. Great until they come for you, wanna bet?
1. I like paying more for less insurance coverage and higher co-pays.
2. I love big brother.
3. I love dealing with government bureaucrats and mountains of rules and regulations.
4. I like government being both the supplier AND decider of what health care I get.
5. I like stealth plans that will one way or another force everyone into single payer, government-only healthcare.
I gotta believe that’s why these people like this socialist bullsh1t. I mean what socialist program that’s been rammed through by the left the last 85 years hasn’t been a monumental success?
look up SUPERCILIOUS in the dictionary and see Sally’s picture.
If OBAMACARE SUBSIDY HEALTH INSURANCE TAX,” aka OSHIT, is so popular, then why isn’t Mr. Michelle Obama enrolled?
I have to point out once again: Just like a tweaker who has been given meth. They will love it and scream if you try to take it away from them, even they know that it is bad for them in the long run. FDR pushed social security over tremendous public rejection. But today, show me one person who is willing to give up their social security, even though everyone recognizes that it is a Ponzi scheme doomed to failure. We were hooked. The ACA will get us hooked too; costs be damned.
It is in their Opinion page. Meanwhile, other stories on the website detail the continuing problems and negative reactions to ObummerCare.
Sally Kohn is a “Fox News Contributor.”
Of course everyone knows that every one of us has a pre existing condition.
And once I sprout wings I can fly to the moon.
Because just like Republicans railed against Social Security and Medicaid and Medicare when they were first proposed, those programs are now highly effective and broadly popular parts of our social safety net
Highly effective? Compared to what? The article is written like it's not supposed the be satire, but seriously. The entire thing is drivel.
Sally Kohn is a freak of nature.
Social Security and Medicaid and Medicare when they were first proposed, those programs are now highly effective ...Hmmmm... Broke, broker and brokest. How’s that working out?
Oh, wait. They mean that when low info voters are told...
1) Your healthcare will be free
2) They have to GIVE you health insurance even if you have pre-existing conditions.
3) Everybody in America will get this free insurance
4) Your health care expenses will go down.
5) The cost of health care will go down for everybody
..... then they are for it? That’s what they approve of huh?
Now ask them if they are for it after telling them the truth...
1) If you get to keep your employer provided insurance, your premium will go up about 25 to 50%. Otherwise you premium is going up 100%
2) If you have a pre-existing condition, you can still buy insurance, but good luck covering that $15K annual premium.
3) This program is so good, congress passed a law exempting themselves from it.
4) If you decide you can’t afford insurance under the new “Affordable Care Act” then you have to pay a fine (or tax per the supreme court)
5) About 30 million people will still be uninsured under Obamacare (about the same as before obamacare)
6) The cost of healthcare to our country is increasing by over a trillion dollars.
Does anyone really think premiums are going to go down? They won’t go down for people who have never had insurance, and never paid a premium at the emergency room. They won’t go down for the people from middle income up, who will be paying for those with middle incomes down. Coverage will go down, while out of pocket pays will soar. How cool is that?
Lets say, for example, a family of three pays $10,000 a year in premiums from a $50,000 a year income. A member of the family goes into the hospital for a colon resection, and the insurance pays $30,000, leaving $80,000 to be paid by the family. How realistic is that? For a family of three making $50,000 a year in today’s economy, the difference between $80,000 and $110,000 means nothing, when it is impossible to pay off either one.
BS BS BS
Do you have any credible sources for this, and can you point me to this law? I thought Grassley's amendment remains in tact.
The number one reason here for loving ACA is that children can be covered on their parents insurance plan until they are 26. Will parents be obligated to cover their adult children?
Where have you been. Congressional employees are getting subsidies to offset the added costs to their insurance. This came from a different branch of government. Then they tried to have a vote not allowing that. Dems shut that down with threats. Now it sounds like they will be able to keep their existing plan, which goes directly against the Grassley amendment.
And she hasn't got a clue.
Okay. I consider the subsidy issue to be separate from participation altogether. I agree it is not fair to have congress treated separately by way of a subsidy in excess of what the average American may enjoy, but your wording above suggests they exempted themselves from Obamacare completely. Have they?
However, forcing the young healthy people to buy insurance that never gets used may drive the costs down. However, all of the other free stuff will probably offset the savings.
On the other hand, they have to buy the insurance and get into the system versus paying the penalty. At least intitially, the penalty will cost way less than the insurance. And like Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid, there have to many many more people paying into the system than are taking from it. The demographics are changing in the US — fewer young workers as baby boomers retire.
No doubt... anyone that knows anything about it... hates it.
But that's only part of the story. The Democrats aren't stupid. These changes in the system are lowering premiums for some people also. And the Democrats, political animals that they are, know that the people who benefit are greater in number than the people who will suffer. And the beneficiaries aren't generally moochers either, but desperate people who will be caught in the expanding net of government reliance in the manner as Temujinshordes states in post number ten.
The Republicans great error was a decade ago when could have lowered the burden for everybody by market-based competition increasing reforms that could have lowered the health burden for everybody and the appeal of socialism
There. . .fixed it.
“Sally Kohn....enough said. I wonder what she had to do to get this BS published by Fox News? ...........”
My sentiments exactly. Why on earth does Fox News have her on their payroll? She is so leftwing and anti-Christian. The only way to understand this headline which includes FoxNews, is to look at the author.
It is not worth reading, and I have actually wasted several minutes of my time already on this idiot.
Is this article a record-breaker in terms of number of lies squeezed onto one page . . . ?
That’s a man, baby.
