‘I like you Obama, but I’m broke’: Americans upset that Obamacare costs money
The Daily Caller ^ | October 8, 2013 | Katie Howland and Whitney Waters

Posted on 10/09/2013 2:31:23 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Obamacare’s been stumbling along at quasi-full force for over a week now, and for some Americans, the Affordable Care Act is not all it was cracked up to be:

I checked out an Obamacare exchange and it impressed me.. Until I saw the lowest premium for me was 3x what I am paying now

Can I steal that for a tagline, or is it racist to quote a racist?

Obama's Dirty Laundry.....

To the tune of Don Henley's Dirty Laundry.


I make my living off the Evening News ( I didn't know about it until I heard it on the news )
Just give me something-something I can abuse.
Obama loves it when you lose,
Obama gives us dirty laundry


Well, I coulda been an actor, but I wound up here ( Spitehouse )
I just have to look good, I don't have to be clear Come and whisper in my ear.
Obama Gives us dirty laundry.


Kick'em while they are up,
kick'em while they are down.

Kick'em vet's to the curb,
kick'em while they grive.


Yeah we love inflicting pain... Obama's dirty laundry.

Obama's got another surprise coming for you. The rates you are shocked by now will go up astronomically when 30 million illegals are amnestied onto the program. Enjoy.

Sorry, Folks.

From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.

Just consider yourselves lucky that our govermnent Masters, the Marxists of America, allow you to keep anything at all. After all, their salaries, perks, privileges, posh homes and summer dachas don’t come cheap.

What’s that? Thought you were living in a Republic governend by a constitution and the principles of democracy?

Hahahahahahaha....

Welcome to the political right.

Here’s my plan-if you voted for Obama, you have to enroll in ObamaCare. Those of us who didn’t , are exempt. That’ll teach you to always be wanting someone else to pay your way through life.

Horizontal inequity between two hypothetical low-income individuals; ....

....one who purchases insurance ‘via an exchange’ receives a substantial direct federal subsidy.
...one who receives ‘employer-provided insurance’ does not.

This could well lead either to moving into the health exchanges ...(thus increasing participation rates)... or to the federal government expanding low-income subsidies to those with employee insurance coverage.(increasing costs).”

Seriously concerned about what will happen to my premiums come January 1, 2014.

My employer has been VERY generous. I currently pay $90/month for my VERY good insurance, and I throw another $50 a month into my Flex Plan. My employer GIVES me $1,300.00/year into that same plan - I use it for dental cleanings, a crown once in a while, and glasses.

They’ve changed the rules on what you can buy OTC with your flex plan $$$ to the point where there is NOTHING I use that qualifies. Pretty silly, actually. I’m healthy as a horse, but who knows what tomorrow will bring?

So, I’m in hunker down mode. As soon as I can, I’m stopping my contribution to the Flex Plan and throwing that into my 401K/Profit Sharing Plan, instead.

And then we’ll see how long before he shutters the business over all of this. He’s said on numerous occasions that he wishes he could legally FIRE anyone that voted for 0bama.

I love that guy! White, Wealthy, Hard-working, EVIL Capitalist who provides HUNDREDS of jobs in our area...someone who MUST BE PUNISHED in 0bamaWorld. *SPIT*

Their information will also go to law enforcement.....and if they have bad credit...the insurance exchanges can refuse them.

Wait til they go through the list of exchanges and no one will insure them...and in the skid row sections they will be numerous.....and so oooooooo oooooo what the Gov. excempt certain areas from the fee for not having insurance...and or “Pay” it for them entirely.

Breaking:......Want to put this up 2nd Division..go ahead if you want...

Mayor Vincent C. Gray “crashed a news conference” held by Senate Democrats and asked Majority Leader Harry Reid to exempt the city from the ongoing shutdown.

“Sir, we are not a department of the government,” Gray told Reid moments after the mayor concluded his own press event about 50 yards from where Reid held one.... “We’re simply trying to be able to spend our own money.”

“I’m on your side, don’t screw it up, okay? Don’t screw it up,” Reid (Nev.) told his fellow Democrat.

This, i.e. Stein’s words,should be plastered all over the USA. Perhaps there are patriots that have access to bill boards. Perhaps there are congresspersons like McClintock of California or Cruz of Texas who can take the message to the people. Steins comparison is one of the best if not the best description of what is going on. And don’t tell me the illegals don’t also know this. For any people to knowingly want to go to another peoples country to literally steal the goodness earned by sweat and death of others does not make for true citizenship.

Today Rush said that the dems want to get this all out and going NOW so that by election season next everyone will have forgotten about it. I have never felt convinced that the crippling cost of obozocare will be forgotten as has the million and one issues that have come and gone before it.

No..Any copy I made splits..I already tried that....even copying to my own e-mail won't work..it breaks all up...

And of course it would be so..it's Government programming etc!!

What I did was just keep the window up and just pressed each left margin number...which gives you the costs..I hand wrote mine down...

There are basically only two in my area(surprise surprise) but they're offering several...however...easy to see they aren't at all competitive as Obama said...Being single the lowest..and that's for catastrophic coverage...is about $200 monthly....everything else is over $400 monthly upwards.

It's a sad commentary on everything Obama said...and is exactly what we've said all along...it's a scam to generate revenue to the gov. and that's all it is...not to mention the insurance companies taking their cut!

So much for paying all the deadbeats healthcare!

It's a disaster no matter how you look at it...and it will fail pushing us all into one payer government system when this is done!!!

How many homeless are sleeping in parks & under bridges? And they are supposed to sign up on a computer?

I have a very old computer & am on a land line. I cannot keep on hold for an undetermined amount of time. The ISP provider shuts me off.

I don’t intend to even try, anyway.

You forgot that most of those under bridges have mental health major issues and or drug addicts. I doubt they even know or care. Probably will be deemed another “Exempt group!
