    If you signed up for Obamacare, what is your experience?   What can you share with your fellow curiosity-seekers?

      I was wondering if anyone would answer.

      I didn't sign up.  I have healthcare through my husband's work right now.
      But I did go to the site just out of curiosity, didn't try to sign up, just looked around a bit.    It let me give a bit of info and brought the conclusion that I might be eligible for a "subsidy".........?   
      From what I could gather,  the prices are pretty high.    I didn't get very far, just enough to see a few general quotes on pricing, and they looked high to me.

      I did not sign up for Obamacare but it was the straw that broke the camels back for my business. I just could not afford another tax on my business so I folded it and went to work for somebody else that offered a company plan. The cost of doing business in this country has become unbearable.

        But man, don't you just get all fuzzed up at the thought that about 3 people now have health insurance?

      But we all signed up for Obamacare. You just have to wait a few years or so to get the full effect. Remember if the socialism isn't working it's because we aren't implementing enough of it. We'll just keep pumping more and more of other people's money into it until we finally get the healthcare we deserve.
      Like Russia...

        You're right.
        More to the point, we were all forced to "buy into it", to accept it.

          What's even more disturbing is the fact that like most dictators, Obama will never admit the flaws, and outright lies about his brain child that will be the abysmal failure that it is. Just keep moving forward with the great Obama, take your great leap forward like Mao, lean forward with MSNBC, until we end up with LBJ's vision of a great society. Despite the fact that the "war on poverty" has cost American tax payers trillions upon trillions of dollars and the poverty level remains the same, if not worse.

    Yes, the rates are high.   In many cases where people had a high deductible plan and were happy with it now they have to pay double what they were paying to get the same thing.

    Rhamson-I am a small business advisor for 32 years.   That plan is so complicated and I tried to read it and I am afraid to advise.   I will not advise on it.   It is too complex.   

    It is made to take away our freedoms.   It is made for the small business person to be either fined or non-compliant because it is so purposefiully complex.
