    Yep, health care, just like all the other civilized and industrialized first world countries of the world. Except that it is not really single payer, and so really is not directly paid for by the government. As such as yourself so incorrectly state, both the individual and the health care maintenance organizations will be paying, with the back up of the government in those cases where this is a true hardship on the American people, just as such programs have always been!! If you do not like that, then there is always the ultra conservative paradise of Somalia!!

    The World would really be quite happy if the USA caught up to supplying the basic social provisions as done in nearly every country in the world for decades.

    Not free. Or haven’t you noticed? That’s why this was a REPUBLICAN plan, thought up at the Heritage Foundation and implemented first by Romney in Massachusetts.

    What do you mean “free”??? They still have to pay premiums.

    Pretty much.
    I make so little that just to even get on a “bronze” plan that I’ll be looking at paying 50% – 80% of my annual salary just to cover the premiums. I’m too poor to qualify for a subsidy, and so unless I come into a large sum of money or find a high-paying job overnight I’m in major financial trouble.

    I’m sure veterans everywhere are just thrilled the Democrats voted overwhelmingly against the VA…

    Yes, stock up some more. Of course you are planning on sharing your stored food with the “less fortune” if there is a need. God bless you..

    still perplexes me that the gop thinks any socialized medicine is the worst thing in the world. that if a person gets cancer, god’s will. that if a veteran needs rehab for a lost leg, that the veteran is weak. that elderly and orphans should fend for themselves without any help. and, what is the gop’s constant war mongering with anyone, even against our allies?

    “Welfare Healthcare has arrived.”

    True: Corporate Welfare for insurance companies. Everyone has to buy their product, so a windfall of premiums are coming their way. And next, using the Premium-Increase Dartboard to determine how much a captive audience must pay them. 100% more? 200% more? Even easier to raise rates, since so many people have told us that the rates will rise….a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    You’ll have to forgive ConserveGov.. He’s been using “free stuff” as shorthand for “people I hate getting things I say they don’t deserve” for so long that they’ve basically become one and the same to him.

    What? That Obamacare is not free? C’mon, this isn’t difficult. You pay insurance premiums or you pay a penalty. What’s so hard about that? Anyone who says otherwise is the liar, not me.

    Um, no, BOEHNER refuses to put the budget in front of Congress. There are ALREADY enough votes to pass it right now. Get it right.

    Understood. However, the insurance industry is loaded with creative accountants, and I have suspicions that much of their non-care spending will be carefully hidden. I do not give them any credit for honesty or altruism, as they have shown me no reason to do so.

    The Kaiser Family Foundation quoted me an average of $2,400 / year for an “acceptable” bronze-level policy.
    I only made $2000 last year from all sources.
    I’m on the clock for less than 10 hours a week at my part-time job (down from 15), sales at my store have tanked as the recession has reared its head again, and the weather has been such that I haven’t had as many good days of late to do scrap metal.
    I’ve only gotten one interview for a new job in the past calendar year despite handing in about 2 – 3 dozen job applications. There are simply that many people per job opening.
    About the only hope I have of getting decent work involves scrounging up enough to get a better vehicle so that I can travel to an area where the economy’s healthier.
