    So you, like most people, ar already covered, yet taxpayers are going to see a 2 TRILLION DOLLAR bill.
    Oh and many others who were fine, are now seeing heir hours being cut down to part-time status so they will have to get the government plan.

    Btw I just talked to a guy this weekend who tried to sign up. He’s only 28 and healthy so his monthly premium was only about $200 a month for the Bronze plan.
    BUT there’s a 6k deductible he Must pay before his insurance will cover a thing.
    Then, the only doctor in his “plan” is over 80 miles away and can’t see anybody for over 6 months.
    So of course he said no thanks.

    I smell talking points!

    The ACA will increase spending by about $1.3 billion over ten years, but it is intended to pay for itself. The ACA has no effect on the deficit. Repealing it, along with the Medicare savings the ACA enforces, would increase the deficit.

    Me too. I heard from a hard core conservative friend who is self employed. He has high blood pressure & could not get affordable insurance. Now he can.

    I suppose your friend would rather take his chances on $100,000+ in hospital bills if he actually gets sick or injured. If the only doctor in the plan is 80 miles away, I’m going to go out on a limb & guess there aren’t more then a few doctors in a 50 mile radius of where your friend lives.

    ConserveGov gave numbers. You didn’t. The New York Times and CNN say ConserveGov’s numbers are lies, the real costs to those who have to use the ACA will be, as you said, ‘affordable’. But what are those costs? What does your friend mean by ‘affordable’.


    I see the $2 and $3 trillion a year claims by the Tea Party types, which clearly bear no resemblance to reality.


    Meanwhile, you, the New York Times and CNN say the ACA is very affordable (with no actual numbers) and President Obama said, ‘less than $100 a month.’


    I’d like to see some real data.

    “Recent data shows that Americans will pay an average monthly premium of $328 for mid-tier or “silver plan” health insurance. The online exchanges under the Affordable Care Act open next week on Oct. 1.

    Most Americans will qualify for government subsidies to lower that price."

    The quote is from http://www.nbcwashington.com/news/health/NATL-ACA-328-Average-Monthly-Health-Insurance-Cost-Under-the-Affordable-Care-Act—225324422.html

    The $100 figure would appear to be the subsidized cost, while the $328 is the real cost. That is actually less than I pay now for my wife and myself on an employer plan.

    I have survived lung cancer and thank God I had insurance when I was diagnosed. $300,000 in medical claims. Now, 7 years later, I am (until Obamacare) uninsurable. Sign me up! You just never known if you need insurance, but when you do, it can mean life or death if you have it or not.

    Yep! And it will end up working just like this gem of a failure of a government insurance program:
    .
    Ready Reserve Mobilization Income Insurance Program.
    .
    It existed from about 1996 to 1998…

    What a selfish woman in that last panel. Doesn’t she know it’s better to die in terrible agony than suckle at the government’s teat? FREEDOM ABOVE ALL ELSE (except for me, but I DESERVE every last penny it would cost to keep me alive, because I’m a REAL American).

    “How many people could have been GIVEN free healthcare for the cost of the software?”

    How many people could have been given free healthcare for what we have spent for the “Star Wars” missile defense system? Much more return on investment if we had.

    I’m in Panel 4 and am pretty sure the artist doesn’t know what an “actual economic disaster” is.

    Yes, Medicare was doing pretty well – until Bush decided to “provide” the Drug Benefit…totally UN-competitive for pricing (the Drug Conglomerates needed the $$$) and un-funded – on the American Express Card of the citizenry – a real responsible fiscally-conservative move,eh ?

    -
    How many could have been given health care with the $24 billion pissed away by the Republicans with their government shutdown?
    -
    I know, I know.
    IT’S OKAY IF A REPUBLICAN DOES IT!
