a reduction in your health insurance costs? President Obama stated "for 85 percent of Americans who already have health insurance through your employer or Medicare or Medicaid, you don't need to sign up for coverage through a website at all -- you've already got coverage." Then he said "because of the Affordable Care Act, preventive care, like mammograms and birth control, are free through your employers. Wow, at 70 years of age, I sure need that don't you? For 70 years I paid my own way and now I am forced to pay for those who won't pay for themselves. Is this fair? Don't you just love it?

That comment about men and Medicaid hit home. My grandfather is dying of pancreatic cancer. Every six months for the past 2 years he had to go for a stent replacement at the cost of $27,000. He had to pay thousands out of pocket.
As usual, the ridiculous quote "go off in a corner and die" jargon to emit emotional duress. If the pretenders would take the proactive approach, they would soon learn that the poor can get surgery and other healthcare without government theft.
Enlighten me, what is the proactive approach?
a proactive approach is a community where local healthcare is provided by local individuals caring for each other.

In my state medical is not offered under state programs unless you are pregnant or under 21, per my answer above, men never get it until retirement or unless collecting disability. I don't think the majority of people against obamacare realize this.

Do they still have planned parenthood? I remember them talking about de-funding that a while back but didn't follow the outcome. I always thought they did a good job, especially with teens.
I'm glad it worked for you. For those of us self-employed with pre-existing conditions it didn't work so well. You are obviously not familiar with clinics - most aren't free.We needed reforms desperately to our healthcare system
Obamacare is a disaster. It steals from the hard working in a pretense to provide for the poor. However, it does not increase the resources within the medical community. And, study of the law indicates it will actually reduce the medical profession.
