Wonderliar, please explain to all of us: You bought your insurance on an exchange that has only existed for 30 days, AND yet you got a rebate for "Last YEAR"

How is that possible??

Oh Yeah, you are a PATHOLOGICAL LIAR!!!

Once again I see some peabrain talking about the outrageous profits of the insurance industry. Since these people will never actually do a shred of research to back up their claims, allow me. The biggies, like Cigna and Aetna, had profit margins of less than 5% the year obieCare was enacted, according to their annual reports. Remember, lying to the stockholders is a fine old time-honored tradition, but lying in the annual report to the SEC gets you into Levenworth, Atlanta or other Federal vacation spots.

Less than 5% is gouging?

Choker, sorry to hear your welfare and unemployment benefits finally ran out. I’ll see what I can do, but I don’t have a lot of hope for you. Very few of our “thunkers” use terms like “thems” and “gots.” The State Democrits won’t take you unless Cardinal Randall Reid Smith gives his blessing, and we both know that’s out. You might try the Libertarians.

Now, wonder, AGAIN, back to the topic. Are you more disappointed your Bamboozler in Chief LIED REPEATEDLY to the American People, or that he was CAUGHT in his MANY LIES, or that he LIED AGAIN in a pathetic attempt to walk back his original LIES, or that he was CAUGHT AGAIN in his NEW LIE about his OLD LIES?

Now watch wonderlib desperately change the subject AGAIN. "Capitalism," "rebate," what next? LOL

wonderwhy “Capitalism only works when it's GOP sponsored?”

No, capitalism only works when there isn’t Government favoritism (Obamascam) written into the law (by insurance company lobbyists) in exchange for kickbacks (insurance company campaign contributions to Barry Obamboozer and his DNC pirate crew). Educate before you bloviate, wonder. LOL

wonderwhy “I received a rebate last year”

I didn’t know rebates were part of Obamascam. Are you sure you even have Obamascam, wonder? In any case, you’re welcome, since I’m pretty sure I paid for your “rebate” one way or another.

wonderlie “This is because the insurance companies can only profit a certain amount and the rest goes back to the insured.”

Keep telling yourself that, wonderlie. You know who WROTE the Obamascam bill? Obama campaign-contributing insurance industry lobbyists. Do you actually believe they wrote a bill that would limit their profits? Those insurance industry execs and their lobbyists didn't get so much richer that you because they were so much dumber than you. LOL

Really tool? Then you should be 100% being this. Capitalism only works when it's GOP sponsored? Keep talking out of both sides of your mouth. Keeps the drool even. No wonderwhy............

Just one of the many that has been repeated to pass this debacle!

Wonderliar, still run my own business but a Fortune 500 NYSE company made me an offer I couldn't refuse to run a design group, so I went captive for a change.

So one job is to pay the bills and get a better deal on insurance, the other is just to pay the taxes on the first job!

Sure you do! That's why you live on the NR website! Talk about a legend in your own mind. No wonderwhy.

ex- poor wording. However, there are many instances, including mine, that premiums have gone down. This is because the insurance companies can only profit a certain amount and the rest goes back to the insured. You don't like it? I don't care. WTAE has been doing a few segments on how it has saved people money. The far right would rather have our country fail, because they cannot accept election results. Wonderwhy??

wonderliar you said your INSURANCE COMPANY lowered your price. That is not an EXCHANGE. Is THAT why you refused to tell anybody what company??????

The ONLY way you get a lower price under Obamacare is to take a chickenshat policy with a $6000 deductible on medical, $6000 deductible on drugs, and drive to Timbuktu to see a witch doctor!

total lie..........no wonderwhy

Gee, NR poll showed 80% feel Congress should pass a law allowing people to KEEP their policy.

That is surprisingly close the 76% a year ago who said THEY WERE HAPPY with their current insurance coverage.

But WHAT did THEY KNOW?? After all they are just the consumers of the product.

The almighty liberals know BETTER!

Obviously, health insurance premiums are going through the roof with all these federal mandates. Michael Tanner of the Cato Institute reports that health insurance premiums will be higher than before Obamacare in at least 45 states — an astronomical 256 percent higher in some cases. The Los Angeles Times says middle-income families in California will pay 30 percent more for health insurance, even with the subsidies.

Policies are being canceled because your old plan — the one you shopped for and liked — is now illegal. It doesn’t cover Sandra Fluke’s dental dams. Obama is blaming the insurance companies for discontinuing policies that he made illegal. (At least he isn’t blaming the cancellations on a guy who put a movie trailer on the Internet this time.)

Isn’t it your basic duty as a caring human being to buy an expensive health care plan you don’t really want? Because who knows better about the health care needs of 310 million Americans than a smug gender-feminist?

Ann Coulter:

"Under the law, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is to determine what every health insurance plan must cover — and any plans that don’t are illegal.

As a result, gay guys are now going to be forced to buy plans that cover maternity care. Mormons will have to buy plans that cover gambling addiction therapy. Elderly couples can buy only insurance that includes pediatric dental care. Catholic hospitals will be required to provide birth control and abortions.

Our federal overseers, led by the arrogant and smug gender-feminist Sebelius, know what’s best for us. (Which is so nice of her since, as she recently pointed out, she doesn’t work for us.) Her idea of flexibility is not requiring Catholic priests to perform abortions. Not yet, anyway. "

@wonder,

"The ACA is going to provide affordable health care for all Americans."

Tell us the date when the ACA will insure ALL Americans???

The ENTIRE population will NOT be covered under Obamacare!!! Wonder, you constantly rant about fact check this fact check that but yet YOU never do and repeat the same lies over and over!

So I'll make this easy! Search "Table 1. CBO's May 2013 Estimate of the Effects of the Affordable Care Act on Health Insurance Coverage" Top of the page - "(Millions of nonelderly people, by calendar year) Look at "change" and "Insurance Exchanges" That number in the year 2023 is 24 (milliion)

Now look at "Uninsured Under the Affordable Care Act" and "Number of Uninsured Nonelderly People" That number in the year 2023 is 31 (million)!

There will still be MORE uninsured people than insured in 10 years! So practice what you preach for a change and check facts!!
