“Bush let the bankers take the profits, Obama took that business back from the banks and now the tax payers are making the profits. Other wise nothing has changed. if we are giving loans out secured by the feds why would the feds not make this money? plus the money back is going towards deficient and yes more school program. This article is rather lame.”

“Really? My youngest daughter's loan documents (she has one semester of undergrad left before starting her MS) all say "Bank of America" on them. She doesn't qualify for subsidized loans because apparently she is rich. (Funny how the schools and banks won't talk to parents because the "kids" are adults and have privacy rights, yet they will base the child's ability to pay on the parents' income).”

“Its very simple, the insurance companies now see a chance to push all the people off there coverage that cost them money into the exchange to help try to kill the exchanges. Trust me these insurance companies have computers finely tuned to each person and how much money you make them. As a form of protest we need ( healthy people ) quit our insurance and move over to he exchanges to counter this greedy grab to kill the exchanges. I for on am trying to push my company this way of 20 people all young.”

MarvinM on Oct 30, 2013 at 09:07:23

“Anybody who currently buys their own insurance and got a new plan with a rate increase, whether they are eligible for a subsidy or not, should go to their exchange and see if they can get something comparable (or better) there.

And dump their old company.

Definitely encourage the young people to check it out. A 29-year-old making $25,000/yr is expected to pay $1730/yr towards their healthcare (about $144/month). But depending on what state and county you're in, your benchmark SIlver plan may be more than that, and if it is, you get more in a subsidy, so don't let the 'sticker prices' daunt you if you are eligible for a subsidy.

This webpage explains how the subsidy is calculated very well, scroll to the bottom.

It's also a great portal for more information about ACA.”

“This whole thing is so funny, you have cali and NY who pay taxes and all of these southern states that get more money then they give ( welfare states ) complaining about taking more money from NY and CA the only two states that pay most the bills. If you strip away all the federal money spent in the south they would be a third world country who make nothing and do nothing. They love to complain about the liberal north, i say its about time all states get the funds they pay to the feds. Then lets see who is left in the south. Stop the southern welfare. They like to complain about who is giving it to them so let cut the money flow off.”

dlturp on Oct 18, 2013 at 17:23:30

“I don't see anyone claiming they are going to move north when they retire, now do they? Your complaint against the South is without substance or proof. Without the South the entire Eastern seaboard would lack the energy to sustain itself for the winter months. Your jealousy reeks of personal hatred for a region of our country that has contributed more than it's share of assistance in more ways than is needed to be mentioned. Hate is a blind character reference.”

“i do not think you know how bad Brazil is. The slums are so bad. This is just like the US in the 1920s and trust me the police did shoot on people in the US in the 1920s and the country got more mad and a revolution almost started if not for the New Deal. Chance are if you lives in the us in the 1920 you would be joining as most people were poor. Brazil is like this. A few own everything why the poor are really poor. Moral of the story do not let the poor get this poor. It will come back to bite you.”
