    Of course not, for they spewed forth from the lying Obamanation. The truth is not in that creature.

    “My healthcare plan will save the average American family $2500 a year on their health insurance premiums”.
    LOL…….Just a complete lie to sucker in the low-info crowd.
    I guess it worked.

    Astonishing how a program that addresses the virtual genocide of 44,000 dying annually and 100,000 or so having to declare medical bankruptcy annually because they could not afford health insurance is attacked by so many. Why do so many accept so much death and human suffering as the best option? Is it the power of negative advertising? Is it ideology gone awry? Is it the lemming syndrome? Are there that many really, really stupid people in America?

    Nice little bit of satire! You should submit it to Saturday Night Live as a skit,

    Obamacare problems are completely fabricated. It’s worked perfectly, and I dare you to prove otherwise.

    This conservative opposes the ACA because it’s a HUGE unconstitutional government overreach. When the feds can run the government efficiently then maybe I’ll listen when they say they can improve the medical/insurance industry. Not to mention that the law as written is so complex that it’s unworkable. Then there’s the ugly fact that a program that was supposed to cut costs and provide coverage for those previously uninsured is actually doing the polar opposite. Want more reasons?

    Conservative-GOP-Republicans are not trying to overturn the ACA, they are trying to overturn Democrats and Moderates in the next election.

    Furthermore, why are more Republicans embracing ACA:

    And conservatives dropping their plans to repeal it: http://talkingpointsmemo.com/dc/gop-disappearing-promise-to-replace-obamacare

    “But, why do the conservatives hate the ACA law so much?”
    -
    let me count the ways——-
    1.Most Americans had healthcare insurance. The few who did not (including the young and healthy who CHOSE to go without insurance) could have been given government-paid insurance; person by person, without using the few uninsured of our 318 million population as the EXCUSE to seize control of healthcare insurance, healthcare providers, and dictate to patients, doctors, hospitals and pharmacy and equipment suppliers. Big Brother Multiplied. And totally un-necessary.
    2.Hello, 1984. PC-speak. PC-practice medicine (private doctors have taken shelter as employees of larger institutions); PC-government choosing who lives and who dies by rationing healthcare made more expensive by government control.
    3.Americans who are conservative and/or older (I am past age 80 and paid private insurance since age 16) do not want to be dependent on government. We know we lose our independence when Big Brother is in charge.

    My aunt has diabetes and for several years it kept her unemployed because it added significantly to the employer’s insurance to hire her. With Obamacare, she had her own plan and, as of March 1st— she has a job. My niece is in college and will be covered by her parent’s plan until she is 26— because of Obamacare. My brother was staying at a job he didn’t need except for the insurance that covered his wife who had chronic respiratory problems— now he’s retired and has insurance through Obamacare. I don’t know anyone who has lost a job because of Obamacare, unless you count my brother, and his job is now filled by a lady who did need it, so that’s actually a net gain too.

    The political pros in the Republican party fear and hate it because people will discover that they will like it. So they are trotting out disinformation and spew to desperately try to stop the tide of (oh, my God ) … Progress.

    Yeah right Before ACA.
    $434 for wife and myself, for a $5000/7500/50 plan.
    After:
    $1054 For a 5000/6000/50 plan.
    Which I have take because they made the plan I had “illegal”.

    Difference in plans?
    Same Insurer, and doctors and such, with Kaiser.
    My wife which is 55 can now has birth control and pregnancy coverage. (Hint she needs neither).
    The max for a year we will pay goes down for each of use is $6000 from $7500.
    For that we pay and extra $7440 a year.
    Not to mention since we are both health we have never spent more than $1000 or so more than our monthly payment.

    You in fact have no clue. The only people that are making out on this are the people that gets supplements from the government, and those come from tax payers or are borrowed.

    And as for your stupid Nobel prize, they are a bunch of political yes men, which try to influence the thinking of the world to their way.

    They gave Obama a prize for literally “What he might do in the future”. And BUZZ he didn’t even do those things they thought he would.

    I still cannot get health insurance. First they wanted me to send them a piece of paper that says I’m not in jail (um, I called you. Did you hear an automated voice asking if you wanted to accept a call from an inmate?) Second the plan I went with knows my medical history since I had them when I was working, and they have been doing everything in their power to cancel my policy. They claimed I failed to make my first premium payment (no mail involved: electronic check that cleared the next day). Then I failed to return some form I never received in the mail (they have my email address). Do you honestly think insurance companies are going to insure chronically sick individuals? I’m sure my customer service will deliberately suffer until I go with another insurer. I wouldn’t mind this so much if it weren’t for the fact that I have the choice of 70 plans offered by 2 companies. It’s like choosing between the cable and phone companies for my internet service.

    You are jumping around a bit here, but I’ll take a stab at a few comments.
    First, not unlike voter certification when you vote, physical evidence of circumstance is probably required. Independent operators determining audibly if someone is / isn’t in jail probably doesn’t cut it.
    Also, if your first insurance company is biased against you, you are working at cross purposes to stay with them. It’s a marketplace. Get a competitive quote. Think American!
    I don’t know where you live, but I would contact your state legislature / executive branch to find out why you don’t have more options.
    Best of luck!

    Either 1) You don’t understand your aunt’s situation fully 2) you’re lying or 3) Your aunt should have found a good lawyer. Except in a few rare cases, a company cannot refuse to hire someone because of a health condition such as diabetes and those few cases where it is allowed are because the specifics of the job make it dangerious for the individual and/or others if the diabetic employee has a sudden spike or drop in blood sugar levels.
    My own quality of care has dropped because of the ACA – It has made the costs higher so I have to get cheaper but less effective medicines, I have less money I can set aside to pay for medical expenses pre-tax and so again, I have to get cheaper but less effective medicine. And when my insulin pump finally breaks down after years of faithful service, I will have to pay an addition 10% tax on it ($500+) which means I may not be able to afford as high of a quality of a model as I would have pre-ACA. I know others who are far worse off under the ACA than I am, including several people who have had their hours cut down significantly since their employers can’t afford to give them healthcare or pay the fines under the ACA.

    The ACA has made health care worse and more expensive for millions while improving it for maybe a few hundred thousand (and that number will drop when Obamacare enrollees find out what the high deductibles on the cheaper plans mean for them). Most people recognized that there needed to be some version of healthcare reform, and most people would be willing to pay a little more to help un-insured be able to obtain coverage, but the ACA does just about a bad a job as possible to do this, and it will be interesting in a year to see how many people are still uninsured.
