If Obamacare is so damn wonderful, then on October 1, I want to see Barry, Shelly, and the girls be the first ones to sign up for it.

Didn't need to. No more insured with or without Obamacare. Makes no difference except for the money taken by the federals.....not to mention the rights taken from normal Americans.

What about my rights to not have to pay higher insurance because of deadbeats like those who took Obamacare to the Supreme Court. One of those Republican deadbeats declared bankruptcy and screwed their doctor out of $4,000. That the Republican healthcare plan.

I live in NJ. A largely Deomcratic state. Most peopel here favored Obama care especially the mayors and heads of townships.

Now that it is comming to fruition. Many towns are cutting back the hours of township employees to avoid providing insurance required under the federal health care reform law.

Middletown as just one example has adjusted hours for part-time employees to make sure they work, on average, less than 30 hours per week, the threshold that the Affordable Care Act considers a full-time employee.

I warned this type of thing would happen in the private sector. But even I am surprised to see it happening in the heavly Democratic public sector.

None of this is a great deal. If it werew. Congress wouldnt push to be exempted from it. Not to mention nobody knows exactly whats in it because it is so big. nobody bothered to read the entire thing before voting on it

Did anyone expect any better? Everyone involved in drafting this law was an idiot. The republicans were not even allowed to sit in on it.

Worthless Pieces of Shit. WPS,,, Hey thats one of those Evil insurance Company's !

The fines and the high premiums will kick in after the 2014 elections for the first tier. The really high premiums will not occur until after the 2016 elections. These stall tactics are a form of self protection for the democrat party's elected people.

I think most of us know that. If this went into effect now the demo rats would be soundly defeated in the next few elections.

Community Organizers don't understand the law. They just try to work around it and turn it to their advantage. This is going down and fast. Obama 's setbacks are ours now. He really needs to go do what he does best............and it's not being the president. He's a rookie and he has hired rookies who manipulate. It'll never work. Defunding it would be the best thing. Start over.
Keep him away from any power or input. He's getting to look more and more like a huckster who's fraudulent.

Thanks Max. Us mature Heart Fixers know when someone's just not prepared. Multiple times Obama's shown he realy doesn't have enough experience. CV fellows think they know but find them after 5 years experience and even they will admit they were incompetent and scary. Obama's scary in his incompetence. It's gtting worse.

I just want to say: i can't afford insurance and I can't afford the penalty NOT to have insurance

Have you checked to see if you would qualify for subsidy? The subsidy would apply for incomes up to $45,960 for an individual or $94,200 for a family of four; consumers can choose to receive their tax credits in advance, and the exchange will send the money directly to the insurer every month. If you fall at or below those income and household parameters I suggest you check out your options at:

It would be good for Democracy if BOTH liberals and conservatives could agree to all clearly see Obama's dictator like attitudes. For example, regarding Obama care. Why was BOTH houses of Congress legally required to vote, in or out, Obamacare. But, once in place Obama makes apparently any changes he pleases simple with the stroke of his pen. People, right and left, that is how a dictator behaves. Who here can like that? If I am wrong, please tell me how. I want to know.

I'd like to tell him what he can do with his Obamacare.
12:10 AM on 08/29/2013
Agreed, but what makes you think he would understand. He would just tighten up his sphincter(sp)

He and his family should be forced to be on it. Or is it not good enough for someone who will be paid by our tax dollars form now on?

exactly, why should the tax payers pay for all these politicians to have golden plans when we are forced to be on this train wreck. is nancy pukelosi going to be on it?
11:44 PM on 08/28/2013
"...the Center for Responsive Politics ." That is a wonderful oxymoron; however, I do NOT think it is funny. When are people going to wake up and realize that Obama's ignorance of anything real (like what he did to jobs and unemployment; health care is already in the toilet and Obamacare hasn't even started; sequestration; the rich (the only group that has benefited from Obama's Presidency) get richer, the middle class gets killed; and lower earners suffer desperately.Yes, his tenure has seen a lot of talk and graft, but can ANYONE name ANYTHING good that has occurred??? I didn't think so.

Plan to open your pockets wide as the cost isnt cheap, maybe let the American People vote if they want Obamacare, 7 million dont have health insurance out of 318 million, let the states cover the people and the thing just might pass.

Obama's Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is expected to extend federally subsidized health coverage to an estimated 7 million uninsured Americans in 2014 through the marketplaces.
12:10 AM on 08/29/2013
Th e number of uninsured in the U.S. is actually between 45 and 50 MILLION. NOT 7 million.
12:18 AM on 08/29/2013
30 to 32 million tops.

Yes, there are a more uninsured but they are not denied healthcare anywhere I know of. Under ObamaCare we are seeing today $3.5 trillion dollars gobbling up an increasing share of a shrinking $15 trillion dollar economy. By the time it is fully implemented it has been projected to gobble up 24% of the entire economy, about 250% more than the next largest healthcare system in the world. ObamaCare is anything but affordable.
