Of course the super rich, including many members of Congress and the Obama Administration, won’t be affected by Obamacare. They don’t need insurance because they can afford to pay cash for their medical care.

Congressional and Administration employees and staff members will receive subsidies YOU don’t get. So THEY’RE the real beneficiaries of the Obamascam tax.

We’re finally finding out what’s in it. What a deal, huh?

The “poor” may well be able to obtain taxpayer-subsidized health insurance policies, but they’ll be “bronze” policies with very high deductibles, so EVERY PENNY of their health care costs will be out of pocket. Just like it is now. And since they can’t afford to pay for health care now, nothing will change for them. Eventually they will figure out Obamascare was just another Government tax scam. A typical Democrit lie.

The “rich” – meaning the current middle class - will be able to afford silver or gold policies, but as we’ve already seen, Government requirements for unneeded coverage and extra layers of bureaucracy will increase the cost of premiums. So the middle class will also soon realize the Obamascam tax was just another Democrit lie.

A major concern for me is, when, and there will be a when, OC is repealed/abolished, can we get insurance premiums back down to the relatively lower prices of say Jan. 2013?

I wonder if all those Democrit voters will keep voting Democrit when they discover they’re unable to obtain that “free” health care they were promised? There’s going to be some serious sticker shock when those premium bills start coming in, and some REAL surprises when the medical bills that fall below the deductible come next. “WHAT? $6000 DEDUCTIBLE? I THOUGHT THIS SH** WAS SUPPOSED TO BE FREE!” Remember when Nancy Pelosi said we had to pass the bill to find out what’s in it? You get to find out soon, libbies. Enjoy.

What a joke! We will spend the next 2 years reading the bogus figures just like we did during the wonderful economic stimulus when individuals who exhausted unemployment benefits were counted as people who must have found jobs due to the stimulus. The jobs by stimulus was a game of political spin and so will "affordable health care plan".

boom you and everybody else under 30 who doesn't have insurance now.

Which is WHY Obamacare is doomed.

It is Ponzi scheme that depends on Massive young people PAYING into but not USING many services to cover the AIDS patients who consume a $Megabuck.

I have health coverage thankfully, but if I had to pay for it, I wouldn't get it. I would take the 99.00 fine at the end of the year. That's cheaper than getting insurance that I can't afford.

Busy working on 'Fudging' the numbers. The refusal to release the enrolled numbers at this time is a clear indication of such.

500,000? Seriously? LOL

At the current rate you won't get 500,000 EVER. Maybe a delay in the mandate you Government goons imposed on the American People but EXEMPTED YOURSELVES and your CRONY CORPORATE CAMPAIGN DONORS from would be in order?

No, "Forward!" is the war cry. Well, good luck with that 500,000 figure, Kathy. We'll be counting all those satisfied Obamascam customers when we hear of any. Let us know when we need to start counting on our toes, too... LOL

If the CEO of a company projected sales of 500,000 of a new product the first month and actual sales were 200,00 would he still have a job at the end of the fiscal year?

Of course not.

Obama is pathological liar, face it sycophants!

FAIL!

Iscreamed delirious as usual

Approximately 51,000 people completed Obamacare applications during healthcare.gov’s first week online, according to an exclusive report from The Daily Mail.

This may signal a serious problem. The Congressional Budget Office said it needs at least 7 million enrollees during the open enrollment period, which is slated to last six months, to keep the massive new health care law financially stable.

At this rate, and if the 51,000 figure is accurate, the total number of Americans who will have signed up by the end of the enrollment period will be roughly 1.32 million (this includes the state-run exchanges).

MASSIVE FAIL!

By the end of March, total enrollment through the markets was expected to surpass 7 million, so these 7 million will no longer be a drain on local hospitals, (causing many hospitals to close)for their health care... Furthermore, Insurance companies will boom, gaining 7million new customers...
