White House Unveils Obamacare Fix For Canceled Health Plans

White House Unveils Obamacare Fix For Canceled Health Plans

“Really that is your comment ? Take a little time from commenting and do some research on bush's 8 years. President Obama has done more for everyone, naysayers included while against total republican obstruction than bush did in 8. In a year or two when you or your friends realize that healthcare for everyone benefits everyone, wonder what you will say then. Healthy people pay taxes, sick people have to have support.”

“The problem is the ones NOT benefiting from ACA ARE the ones paying the taxes.  Other than finding a way to screw up our medical care, what have been his great accomplishments?”

“Wow now the cost is 600 million, funny how it changes with each Fox news memo. Guess you aren't for improving infrastructure or helping States that are ravaged by weather, progress will always cost, but the cost of doing nothing is more. Perhaps you would be happier returning to living in caves.”

“I always find you guys amusing, just throw money at it regardless if it works, Let's never look at a program to see if it works throw money at it, Let's never see if these laws even help anymore just throw money at it. let's just keep growing useless government bureaucracies just so liberals can say we're are doing something! and the funny thing is you guys believe that to be smart!”

“And how many lost their health insurance every year due to the raise of premiums ? Anyone ask that ? Nothing wrong with making Plans standardized. Supplement Plans are standardized, so you just have to compare prices, apples to apples. Could the ACA been better, sure, we already have plans why not just copy what is working and improve, certainly not throw it all out. The ACA as Social Security and Medicare are history making for the betterment of all Americans.”

“Excellent piece on Daily Kos, on ACA 529,447 signed up in 3 weeks, glitches an all. I think that is amazing. As for software failure, when you have thousands, trying this new program out, some just to see if it will work, websites will crash. Do not count this program out, we have alot of people needing help. Maybe if the just curious crowd would back off and let those who need it use the website it would run better.”

“It depends entirely on how many of those 500k that actually picked a plan and will be paying premiums after they signed up. They need at least 2.5 million young, healthy people alone before Feb 15th to make the math work.”

“Looking back at Social Security and Medicare and the same naysayers now probably had grandparents being doomsday sayers then. I do know when I checked the votes which party voted AGAINST any and all social programs and it wasn't the Democrats. Someday people need to learn who works for them and not big corporations.”

Of course, the President delayed the Obamacare mandates on big corporations but not on the little guy.

Yes, he works for the little guy.

“Wow first time ever a President trying to do something for everyone and so many jump on the wagon to discourage it. Yet these same ones were for spending money and lives in a made up war. Amazing ! Now as the the expense so spending $24 BILLION for nothing is ok, but millions for the good of all is so very wrong ? Explain that.”

“Unacceptable by whom ? We have a serious healthcare cost in this country which was getting worse every year. President Obama at least has tried to put a Plan in place to help. Exactly what Plan has the republicans EVER put in to help ? And open your mind, it is working in many places and once it is fully in operation you will be one to pretend you were for it .”

“Republicans took a surplus, spent that, ran the credit cards over the limits, caused massive economic losses, ignored failing infrastructure, healthcare costs out of control. Now we have to put the financial economy back on course and PAY our PAST debts. Republicans want us to believe they didn't create this disaster.

“How many times must President Obama ask for the republicans to work together to rebuild this country ? And the next day after costing $24 Billion (at least) the repubs are damning the whole ACA, not trying to make it better, but screaming about costing taxpayers money. Excuse me but isn't the 24 billion taxpayer's money as well ? And here again comes Benghazi.
Where was all the investigative committees over 911 over the lies invading Iraq, the deregulations causing massive recession ? Are republicans just too stupid to realize working together for progress will make them look better as Congress people ?”
