And what do these plans COVER? You may have to drive an hour or more to find a doctor in the "plan".

If you need to see a specialist, you may pay THOUSANDS out of your pocket because it is NOT covered.

Ask Canad how that government health care is working out for them? Same kind of problems only worse.

Wreck the economy, wreck the healthcare, and wreck US foreign relations, the Muslim Manchurian candidate has destroyed America.

We won't have to speculate much longer with the exchanges opening next week. We will be able to view the plans, their networks, their costs. So the doom and gloom preachers can continue jumping up and down ranting and screaming "the sky is falling! The sky is falling!" The extremists can then focus on their next speculative rant as they always do.

Bloomberg:Americans Turn on Washington, 68% Say Wrong Track in Poll.

"As Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) prepares for his filibuster of the Obamacare defunding bill that passed the House, the Urban Institute noted that delaying the individual mandate could actually "unravel" the entire Affordable Care Act.

Analysis by the non-partisan think tank shows that delaying the individual mandate would "cause serious disruption to the health-care system and make it difficult for President Obama's health-care overhaul to get back on track if the mandate were later put back in place."

The paper cites a Congressional Budget Office estimate that the delay would save the federal budget $35.4 billion over the next ten years."

BBWHAHAHAHAHAH!

Hoopie is right, finally America will realize how BADLY they are getting *****ed!

"FORBES today:

For months now, we’ve been waiting to hear how much Obamacare will drive up the cost of health insurance for people who purchase coverage on their own. Last night, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services finally began to provide some data on how Americans will fare on Obamacare’s federally-sponsored insurance exchanges. HHS’ press release is full of happy talk about how premiums will be “lower than originally expected.” But the reality is starkly different.

Based on a Manhattan Institute analysis of the HHS numbers, OBAMACARE WILL INCREASE UNDERLYING INSURANCE RATES FOR YOUNGER MEN BY AN AVERAGE OF 97 TO 99 PERCENT, AND FOR YOUNGER WOMEN BY AN AVERAGE OF 55 TO 62 PERCENT. WORST OFF IS NORTH CAROLINA, WHICH WILL SEE INDIVIDUAL-MARKET RATES TRIPLE FOR WOMEN, AND QUADRUPLE FOR MEN."

WHAT EFFin' SAVINGS???

In addition to many Union groups, state and local gov'ts, you can now add the NY Times to the group of gloom and doom preachers!

Lower Health Insurance Premiums to Come at Cost of Fewer Choices By ROBERT PEAR Published: September 22, 2013 "WASHINGTON — Federal officials often say that health insurance will cost consumers less than expected under President Obama’s health care law. But they rarely mention one big reason: many insurers are significantly limiting the choices of doctors and hospitals available to consumers."

Just how long will it take for Americans to wake up and find out how much we have been bitten by this regime? All they can think of is to give to those who do nothing or very, very little. This country was founded on every one doing their share. Look at where we are now.

Has any one read what the out of pocket costs are for a family of four with the Bronze Plan?......$12,700 plus the co-pays. Does any person reading this paper have a plan with O O P costs that high? Mine is only $4,200. These low monthly premiums are clearly a 'teaser' rate, just like the home mortgage rates were.

So we consider the premiums "less" because someone (tax payer) else is paying them! I would guess that my mortgage payment would be "less" if my fellow tax payers were chipping-in!

The stupid here is just unbelievable. People complaining about co-pays? Those people now have no health coverage, a co-pay is preferable to going bankrupt from medical bills. If you get insurance from you employer or medicare you keep it. The only thing that changes is now if you don't have health insurance you can sign up for Obamacare. If you do already have insurance they can't drop you when you get sick, insurance companies have to spend 80% of their premiums on actual health care instead of bloated CEO salaries. Oh you say you can't see the doctor you chose, well I have to stay in network already and besides that the people on Obamacare have no doctor period now.

duh rat, You moron GWB left office with a deficit of over 1 1/2 TRILLION DOLLARS, WE WERE LOSING 800,000 JOBS PER MONTH. GWB did everything but s--- on the Oval Office floor before he slithered out of DC. He brought democracy to Iraq! That is a joke, right? He led 4000 Americans and 100000 Iraqi civilians to their death. All he accomplished was building Iran up in the region.

If you think the premiums are expensive, try getting sick or injured with NO insurance. Go ahead,see what happens.

We have been reduced to a nation of crybabies. We used to be made of sterner stuff. Now, most folks can't do without their daily glass of whine.

That's in the evening. In the morning, apparently most folks are still enjoying their daily bowl of stupid.

Ohiodumass, when Obama took office the debt was $10.6 Trillion. Today it i0s $16.95 TRILLION which is WHY the limit of $17 trillion needs to be raised.

Do the math, you retard: $6.3 TRILLION increase under Obama, more than any President in Hisotry and MORE THAN the COMBINED total from the last 42 presidents.

That is more money spent than government in the history of the world, all on Obama's watch.

By the time he leaves office it will exceeded the total COMBINED amount spent by every president from George Washington to George W. Bush. COMBINED!!!!!!

The Bush 2007 Deficit of $161 billion has been exceeded in several different MONTHS in the Obama Disaster Administration.

He DOUBLED the number of people on food stamps.

By ANY metric, the Obama Administration is a complete friggen DISASTER.

When the Democrats were pushing Obamacare, they kept telling the nation that it would only cost about $900 billion over the next ten years but is that true?

They discovered that the shortfall between all of the new Obamacare tax revenue and spending is approximately $17 trillion dollars. This is five times the current federal annual budget and over three times the amount that the Obama administration has already borrowed in just three years.

When the GOP staffers extended the shortfall out over the next 75 years, it totaled up to a whopping $82 trillion.

Congressional Budget Office (CBO) officials project the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will cost American taxpayers double what the Obama administration had projected. Health care spending will double from $838 billion in 2012 to $1.837 trillion a year in 2022.

Simply stated, that means that the cost of government health care will pass discretionary spending in 2016,

The CBO estimates that 11-12 million uninsured Americans will be subjected to the mandate; the agency expects more than half of them to pay the fine instead of buying insurance. But wait, there’s more: “as more people pay the ‘tax penalty’ instead of buying insurance, premiums for everyone else will go up, potentially triggering a death spiral in the private insurance market,” Forbes said in response to the CBO report.
