Advocates of the Affordable Care Act, focused until now on persuading people to buy health insurance, have moved to a crucial new phase: making sure the eight million Americans who did so understand their often complicated policies and use them properly.

Wouldn’t it be much easier if we just went to some sort of ‘Single Payer’ Government-run Healthcare system?
We is well on da way! All by design, Comrades. All. By. Design.
Where’s my free s—t? Obama promised us free s—t.
So people “smart” enough to sign up for Commicare aren’t smart enough to use it? If true, the herd is a bit thick.
Obamacare is Fake , your Policy is Fake , But thanks for the Money
As you Diana, ObamaCare was NEVER about health insurance - it was about control.
Government databases, government control of our lives. If the government can control your very life through health care, it has us completely.
Don't know for sure but often lower-income people will have a friend who is a former beautician do their hair for very little. My family does this.
Is this lady with epilepsy not supposed to have her hair done so you can make fun of that, too?
America is destroying itself for the benefit of 13% of the population. A group of people who contribute nothing to society.
‘Free’ healthcare worked for Hitler! That was one of the very first thing his ‘party’ implemented; in fact he CAMPAIGNED on it!
Funny how we never seem to LEARN from History...though who is actually educated in American/World History these days?
Does she have a smart phone? Does she have big screen tv with cable/satellite? Does she have a job?
“Advocates of the Affordable Care Act, focused until now on persuading people to buy health insurance, have moved to a crucial new phase: making sure the eight million Americans who did so understand their often complicated policies and use them properly.”
This is the closest we will get to an acknowledgment of the fact that the people enrolled in the ACA are a bunch of dummies. Not to worry though. They will still have their votes counted.
But here is what all the Liberals who just loved ObamaCare don't realize.
If you signed up for ObamaCare, and told the counselor your financial information, the counselors are trained to coach you into guiding your answers so that you qualify for the largest "subsidy" you can in order to reduce your premiums and co-pays.
Guess what? The IRS now has the ability to go back and put you through the proverbial financial garlic press.
If there was ANY discrepancy between your answers and your tax returns, you are SCREWED!!!
Just as when the loyal Nazis were AMAZED when the Gestapo turned on them, so will the Liberals be when the Obama Regime turns on them. It is already happening.
Look at these low information gibsmedats. What do you mean it wasn't FREE? Give me my free health care!!!
>> the eight million Americans
With the false implication being the net nationwide coverage increased by 8 million. Prolly just a few million at “draconian” costs and loss of liberty.
You can buy those by the dozen.
8 Million haven’t signed up. 2 Million signed up since 6 Million lost their Coverage and had to get new Policies.
Now, we have had Obamacare in place for three years. We were told that there are 40 Million People that were Uninsured.
Where are those missing 38 Million? I thought Obamacare was Mandatory.
All the way to the last paragraph to get to this ...... she got Obamacare, she couldn't understand Obamacare, but now that she finally DOES understand her Obamacare plan (mostly why it isn't paying for everything & she has to pony up $60 co-pays), she's losing her plan. Only in "Obama's World" .... with "Obama Voters" .....
Don't know for sure but often lower-income people will blow their multiple entitlements on drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, gambling, fatty foods, and porn.
My answer (couched in speculation) makes as much sense as yours.
Moreover, to the point of all of this, we have the ObamaCare takers now ticked off that everything in life is not handed to them on a silver platter.
Our government spends TRILLIONS on Medicare, Medicaid, and now ObamaCare.
It is not as if the tax payers are "heartless" to someone with a medical condition.
Or Emergency Rooms don't turn away anyone, and now ERs all of the country are closing or have closed because of illegals showing up for routine care, and millions of Americans who have abused the system that pays their way.
ObamaCare is the final nail in the coffin. It will lead to the outlawing of any private insurance.
