Yep totally worth it.

Totally worth those who've been dropped from their insurance and those who are going to lose their employee insurance. Totally worth being told "If you like your plan you can keep your plan" even though it wasn't true. Totally worth the impending doctor shortage it is creating. Totally worth those who've seen increases upwards of 30% in premiums. Totally worth the continued inefficiency of the gov't website. Totally worth the insurance company bailout. Totally worth the holes in the website where hackers could steal private information.

Yep. I guess there is one question to ask. Who would be against obamacare at this point? It's totally worth it!

Apparently not all Democrats are in favor of Obamacare despite what HMDI would want you to believe. If this program is so good why does the administration continue to delay portions of it? And where does that authority come from? Once a law is passed isn't it the law unless changed by congress or the courts?

Any statement I make is the opinion of me exercising my first amendment right to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and is generally permitted.

What mr independant always leaves out is that he has been exempted out of obumacare like the rest of US UAW workers and retirees.

The skeptical Ohio family turns out to not be skeptical. Nor objective. That they actually believed that health plans after Obamacare was enacted, didn't cover pre-existing conditions, indicates they were one of the most ignorant citizens in the nation. And that they may now feel Obamacare is better, is very selfish, and continues their family tradition of stunning ignorance.

We can always anticipate that anyone with a serious medical condition and lower income will come to like Obamacare. Welfare recipients like welfare; that's not surprising.

Obviously you feel that medical care should only be available to the rich.

No, only expensive medical care should be for the rich. That's called "reality".

My readings about the history of medical care show that Americans became more and more entitled about medical care, but that care always came at ever greater cost. I call it the Medical Bubble. Eventually, it had to burst.

Now Americans have to stare at hospitals filled with hyperexpensive care procedures that they can't make use of, since there's no money available to do so. Tough shit, I say. There's nothing in the structure of reality itself that says you're entitled to run through $2-5 million in medical care in your life when your lifetime wages only come out to a million or so.

In other words, there's a lot of healthcare that's expensive because of being highly technical and making use of esoteric pharmaceuticals, and yet for some bizarre reason you believe that you're entitled to it. Unscrew your head. And get back to reality: You're mortal and you're going to fucking DIE. A friend of mine is totally right when she observed that Americans have been sold on this faux immortality shit. That didn't surprise me since Americans are the most delusional people on Earth.

Anyone who NOW has a pre-existing condition, or suddenly becomes sick [& frankly, lots of them are smokers, drinkers & overeaters who do this to themselves] is going to want an insurance policy paid for by others under the unaffordable care act. Of course. This story, along with others bobo has put forth from time to time, is "anecdotal". It does not make a case for Obamacare. It just doesn't. For one thing, we have taken care of patients like this before, with our pre-stupid-care system. Another story for another time.

Bottom line is that the liberal media will try to spin this right down to the November elections. BUT... liberal dem politicians who feel that they deserve their cushy jobs just as much as bobo thinks he deserves his - are going to desert him in droves. The liberal media is now trying to spin the numbers of voters signing up for the unaffordable care forced insurance deal. They are lying about the numbers. They are going to announce "7 million" any day now. It won't be true. The only ones buying it either have pre-existing conditions OR they qualify under the expanded Medicare in their state. I was thinking Mexican illegals, too... but no, their illegal status guarantees them medical treatment BECAUSE they are not U.S. citizens. The relatively young and un-sick U.S. citizens are not buying policies. The liberal media deliberately don't report this. They just pretend that's not happening.

And I think that ANYONE who is in one of the many many many many EXEMPTED groups of this crappola so-called law, is NOT qualified to comment upon a law that a lawless president has seen to it won't affect them to begin with.

You ought to be glad Obama Care covers mental illness.
