Is this proof that Obamacare is bad for the nation? From the outset, many people have stated that Obamacare will actually ruin the healthcare and insurance communities in the USA. Now this action has been taken, but it does not delay the tax that will burden the middle-class when the big businesses are not required to provide the health insurance for their workers. So, once again the politicians have placed the full burden on the hard working middle-class. Is it time to eliminate this unfair tax system?
sort by best latest
Yep-and the kinks are political pandering to buy votes.I have read the whole document and it provides exemptions to select groups.it is discrimination at the highest level. So much for fairness.
By the way, now the Health-Law Employer Mandate will be delayed by U.S. until 2015 - after the 2014 elections! Cynical? Sneaky/ You bet!
you are very correct in your analysis. politics at its worst. pass a damaging bill and then delay the damage until the corrupt ones can get reelected.
You need to do some more research.
The best way for USA to take care our own is to eliminate all subsidies for foreign support. Buy American and quit spending on foreign so we can create progress at home. This always works for the homeland.
faythef...you're correct the rates have already spiked in CA where it was implemented. And a number of insurers like Aetna have opted to no longer offer indiv policies in CA as a result of this mess, yet you're still required to by them. LOL
So that is why my healthcare insurance has trippled in cost since the law was passed without reading it.what a surprise to find there are still those who are willing to support the drain on the middle-class. Beware the next action to exempt business
so big corporations are exempt from fines but individual are not? That's crazy!
ta if that is true then in Oct shop the exchanges in your state and get a better price. This plan forces insurance companies to compete and puts many more people in the system - lowering prices
Folks-those who believe the exchanges are a good thing need to do some research. Most do not cover all that your prior insurance covered. So many special riders mean more costs. Plus under the exchange the accountant has more power to deny coverage
I think you are the one that needs to do some more research ta - the exchanges are a good thing - perfect? no, but claims are denied all the time now and Obamacare puts restrictions on the ability to deny care.
There are many reasons one's insurance costs go up. It's usually because of age, current health, and the likelihood of additional needs/care. You can always ask them to review the pricing once serious attention to your health shows improvement.
Yep - I did check with the agent and the increase was due to compliance with the afordable care act (obamacare). So I guess to make it affordable they must charge more from the hard working middle-class.
you are very correct. truth is that the law does not provide anything, because the health professionals will actually be providing less due to the loss of incentive. every citizen was covered in previous medical plan through self-seeking assistance
you are correct - anyone on medicare will soon find that their coverage has shrunk under the new law. and even with the expanded coverage for some illnesses, the overall coverage will cost the elderly more. and the tax on the middle-class to cover it
a glitch is a small hiccup, this is more of a "blue screen of death"
What it is nothing more than is politics. An earthquake of declining coverage and rising costs forced by Obamacare was only two months away. This punts the problem past the next federal election. That is its sole purpose.
then why does it cost more if it is such a glitch. the only hitch is that the dems who voted it in want to get reelected so they do not want the large corps to be funding their healthcare pork until the election is over.
Also mental evaluations for everybody. Already 70% are on Rx. Truly a "Brave New World" soma to pacify any protesters that are outside of "free speech cages". All I wonder is what USA Gulag is to be located. Maricopa's tent city of 120 degrees?
You are worse off with the obamacare plan because your choice of doctors has been reduced when using the exchange. The correct plan would have reduced insurance rates by creating more jobs not less jobs. read the book about surviving obamacare
My question is how do you create these jobs that are going to save us money. Governments spend millions on economic development and are cutting health care. I like to have more jobs, but at my age, one is not forthcoming. Obamacare will help me.
The way you create more jobs is to quit supporting low cost foreign ones. The fact is that the USA is the only nation that can exist by supporting itself. The political game is to keep the citizen in a slave mode to government. Big business is for it
