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

“So the minimum plan for obamacare is 100 bucks a month I like you Obama but nigga I’m broke”
Can I steal that for a tagline, or is it racist to quote a racist?
Yep the price sucks but so does the coverage !
sorry pals..you own it now! I have no sympathy for anyone that voted for that punk.
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.
awwwwwwwwww poor Commies..must be upsetting to them knowing they actually have to PAY to get health care..they were hoping that the Govt goodies were free and that the “Mean mean” rich people would have to pay for it..karma, isnt it a thing of beauty
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?
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.
Funny how liberals don’t mind if SOMEONE else is paying for it. But when it hits THEIR pocket they go ballistic.
F U B O! and every liberal/marxist that voted for this POS!
“They’re paying for it!”
“You eat it!”
Sick, but apparently true.

“Funny how liberals dont mind if SOMEONE else is paying for it. But when it hits THEIR pocket they go ballistic.”
I’ve noticed that also, locally and online...LOL
EAT YOUR PEAS!
It is somewhat entertaining to watch nobama-supporters and their come-alongs squirm and complain. EAT IT, Dogs. Bwahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.
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*
I’m sticking with the toxoplasmosis theory.
It’s the only one that makes sense.
That’ s an EXCELLENT proposal!!!!
But I have an even better proposal. EVERYONE should be exempt from obamacare, and exempt from obama, too!!!
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.
It’s hard to believe people are so out of touch that they’re surprised about the penalty for not buying insurance.
Go ahead and post a citation for that...and not the Florida article which was retracted.
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.... Were simply trying to be able to spend our own money.
Im on your side, dont screw it up, okay? Dont screw it up, Reid (Nev.) told his fellow Democrat.
When was it retracted?
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.
Sorry chumps, it is the law of the land. Supreme court ruled it legal. /sarc
I’ve already read several threads about it.
Lets add something to your suggestion - give them an option; they either have to enroll in Bambicare or surrender their right to vote for 25 years.
ok...glad it;’s up...
I like that plan. Send that to your rep and senators.
Ping to me
I’m tired of these greedy, hate filled racists attacking the president!
Look-ee what I got!!!!!!
These are the prices and the Exchanges..listing states and Insurance companies...’without signing in’...
.... small and hard to find,...this is taken from a part of the Healthcare.gov site.
The link will take you ‘directly to the list’...
Ok....that one now is blocked...try this one which i saved...

Can you possibly post a screen shot? Something about that site creeps me out ;)
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.
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.
Of course they want it done by election.....but there’s no way..even with subsidies that people can afford this...no way.
There will be a huge ground swell against this....if not...then this nation people deserves all that will come from it.
r surrender their right to vote for 25 years.”””
Without strong voter ID laws, this is toothless.
>> Ain’t nobody got dime for that.
There’s many who aren’t even going to try and sign up...the link I gave lets you view without signing in....I wish i could print something and put it up here...but I tried and the copy breaks off and blurrs on top of each entry.
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!
Did you hear Selibus say that citizens have a year just like business to delay...then she said just pay the penalty and you have a years delay!....LOLOLOLOL
At this point I’m doing nothing about it.....gathering information and then get a medical lawyer to help...I don’t want to pay but better an attorney then one of those ‘three day trained’ navigators, who BTW have incentives to sign people up and know little about what they are doing.....who could easily be the ones from prison Obama has allowed to become Navigators.
Makes you wonder how many people will work with their employers to be paid under the table and bypass the entire government on everything!
HEck the people on disability constantly take wok under the table while they collect....had a couple across the street from me...both on disability yet both worked.
