Take a look at just five of the ways the GOP/Tea Baggers would hurt millions of Americans if the Koch Brothers and Insurance Lobby get their way. Tea Baggers duped and Brainwashed by the lies of Fox “news” AFP and ALEC vote against their economic, social, environmental and Health care interests.
1.Millions of Americans could lose access to preventive services, including cancer screenings, blood pressure tests, and flu shots. [Source: HHS]
2.Insurance companies could continue to deny coverage to as many as 129 million people with a pre-existing condition if they try to buy insurance on their own. [Source: HealthCare.gov]
3.Young people could be kicked off their parents’ insurance when they turn 18 or graduate from college, instead of being covered until they are 26. [Source: HHS]
4.Americans who fall into the Medicare “doughnut hole” would lose crucial discounts on prescriptions. [Source: HHS]
5.Insurance companies could go back to spending as much as 40% of premiums on administrative overhead like CEO salaries and marketing. [Source: Healthcare.gov

Well Bob your interpretation of how Obamacare would affect us is possibly correct to some degree but for me I would like to add that this healthcare bill will impact our family as such-being that my husband has been on Medicare due to a long term illness for years now we learn that the Dear Pres is asking HHS to wait until after the election to send out notices to 2 million Senior Advantage patients telling them the program has been cancelled. My husband has been with his provider for 25 years and yes he belongs to an HMO. His carrier has saved his life over 5 times and now that we have learned the facts about Obamacare I like it even less than I did when I went to my first Tea Party rally. My husand and I worked all of our lives for a decent living and under no circumstance do we want to be kicked onto a Gosh Darn Medicaid program because of a program called the Affordable Care Act. First it’s not affordable-becuase my premiums went up immediately after the darn act was passed and I personally had to increase my deductible just to keep 80 percent coverage with a 5,000 deductible and still pay huge monthly ins payments. You are a troll!

Lets get this straight . . .
We’re going to be “gifted” with a health care
plan we are forced to purchase and
fined if we don’t,
Which purportedly covers at least
ten million more people,
without adding a single new doctor,
but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents,
written by a committee whose chairman
says he doesn’t understand it,
passed by a Congress that didn’t read it but
exempted themselves from it,
and signed by a Dumbo President who smokes,
with funding administered by a treasury chief who
didn’t pay his taxes,
for which we’ll be taxed for four years before any
benefits take effect,
by a government which has
already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare,
all to be overseen by a surgeon general
who is obese,
and financed by a country that’s broke!!!!! ‘What could possibly go wrong!

Neither could Michael, these are the words of Donald Trump.
Bob said on June 28, 2012
So you cite sources from the obama administration? Well, you really proved a point there!
Mark C. said on June 28, 2012
Not to mention that Obama HIMSELF cut 535 BILLION dollars from Medicare so he could count it TWICE as “savings”. As President Reagan said, “You’re entitled to make your own opinions, but not your own facts.”

We should hold these truths to be self-evident.
Health care should be a fundamental unalienable Right for all citizens.
The health of a nation should not be a commodity to be bought or sold.
Without health there can be no Life.
Without health there can be no Liberty.
Without health there can be no pursuit of happiness.
“When it shall be said in any country in the world my poor are happy; neither ignorance nor distress is to be found among them; my jails are empty of prisoners, my streets of beggars; the aged are not in want; the taxes are not oppressive; the rational world is my friend, because I am a friend of its happiness: When these things can be said, there may that country boast its Constitution and its Government”
― Thomas Paine, Rights Of Man
Corporations are not people.
Money is not free speech.

“unalienable Right for all citizens.” Problem is Jim, 11 million uninsured are NOT legal citizens…..

AS GOD IS MY WITNESS. . . I will never comply with ObamaCare, including the so-called individual mandate requiring most Americans to obtain health insurance starting in 2014.
Furthermore I will continually milk the health care system to the fullest of my ability under ObamaCare. I will not pay for anything while taking full advantage of using the system in acquiring every medical treatment and medication possible.
OUT WITH OBAMA AND THE DEMOCRAT PARTY IN 2012.

What a d*ck. Actual hardworking, American HUMAN beings have horrible and incurable illnesses that can’t get health insurance because of “pre-existing conditions,” and YOU’RE planning on taking away time doctors could be using to help them, and thousands of OTHER hardworking Americans, to prove a point? These are human BEINGS, you %ssholes. You’re disgusting. All of you.
Eric Pearson said on June 29, 2012
So your answer is to implement a progressive agenda health care system based on a Marxist form of socialized government.
As for yourself, I’ve come to the conclusion Socialist Liberalism is a mental disorder, it affects the brains ability to rationalize, deal with facts, or carry on civilized debates. Apparently we have no cure for Socialist Liberalism.
For myself, the United States will never solve its fiscal or societal dilemmas until its citizens, led by principled leaders unafraid to tell the truth, understand what “rights” are and that life is inherently inequitable and difficult. Government, which is made up of fallible human beings, cannot make life fair and guarantee equal outcomes; it can only provide a framework to enable the individual to pursue those goal. History has shown that to do otherwise condemns that nation to an inevitable collapse.
awesome eric, loved the comment..
just wanted to add a small notation. i live in massachusetts and since romney care has been implimented at the end of our state arsenal, middle class people who actually pay for health insurance, they’re premiums have grown thirty percent..
but i guess if you want to look at the up side, if all obama care goes through we wont have to worry about those canucks coming down and stealing our health care, they’ll have to wait in line just like everyone else..

Marx and Lenin would be jumping for joy at this outcome. Its part of the foundation of their from of government. Doubt it?? Look up the mandates of the communist party regarding taking control of a nation. It is in the writings of some famous people. Bill Ayers and Hillary Clinton to name a few. The idea of central government is fundamental in the success of communism. Obama promised change, now you have it. Just one step in taking away what freedom we have left.
God bless you all and God save this country.
I can hardly recognize this country anymore. You can’t call yourself an American if you’re not outraged. This is a fight we should all be ready and willing to have.

lived for 30 years in England before coming to the USA 20 years ago.
I had 3 brothers and 2 sisters, I had asthma as a kid. My mother is 82 and still living in England. My mum is still receiving excellent Healthcare and recently had and operation on her eyes to improve her vision. When I was a kid I frequently went to the doctor and sometimes the hospital for asthmah. The healthcare system in England has it’s problems but it is the best thing about the Country. I work for a large corporation in the US and have good health insurance. It does not compare to the system in England. If I go to the doctor I, which I never do unless I’m really sick I receive a letter saying this is not a bill, then about 3 months later I get the same letter saying I owe the money. England spends just less than half on each person that the US spends and has far better service. I phone Shawn Hannity twice when Obamas law was first proposed and both times they hung up.
John… let me clarify the 2 documents…. A co-pay is a co-pay…. The first letter tells you what the doctor submitted…. this is when you review the detail… If it is wrong you call the doctor, but many times most do not. Even I am guilty of not paying attention, but most do not take that look and read what the document really is pointing out. Then they are surprised when they receive the bill for their portion of the office/hospital visit.
If you have not noticed, since the HC bill was passed, our premiums went up, our deductibles have gone up, and anyone who owns a home will have to pay another 3.28% premium when they sell to send to OCare Inc. Plus, there are hooks in it to get to everyones 401k should the OCare need to. This bill is a fraud. The people who put it together are frauds, and those who voted for it are in a word…. idiots. But I digress… So John, I ask the simple question, if healthcare is the best thing about England, then why are there so many people coming to the USA to get healthcare and many are not from England too?
Joe S said on June 29, 2012
Don’t try to use reason, common sense, and fact John. That stuff doesn’t work here.
the problem john is you no longer live in england, if you want they’re health system: GO BACK..
I have a close friend who is from england and he made a similar comment you made, i asked him: why did you come to america, he replied he wanted to start a business but he thought the goverment over there takes too much out succesive people … there is your answer right there america and england are diferrent countries with different values. again if you think they’re system is sooo great why did you leave!!!! from what i understand people die in english hospital hallways and canidians have two year waiting lists for common surguries..this country is a country of choice at the end of the week, with my own hard earned money. i would like to have heart attack at the hospital of my choice..you wanker!!!
john williams said on June 30, 2012
Thanks for insults. I came to the US for a female. I now have 2 kids, if it wasn’t for my wife I would consider moving back to the UK.
The mandate was proposed by Newt Gingrich and the Heritage Foundation about 10 years ago. This was taken up by Obama and passed. I think the real reason that you are so mad is that Obama got it passed. If this had been proposed by a Republican, “we should stop people with no insurance freeloading on the rest of us” you would be all for it.
Fred said on July 19, 2012
Just reading some of your comments here. Wow, you people are really stupid. And the frightening part is…you don’t even know how stupid you are! You have no facts to support any of your criticisms of the Affordable Care Act. But why let facts and a logical thought process get in the way. Rant away, knuckleheads!
