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.
