    Did you know that the act of signing up for Obamacare has personal and financial risks?

    Discussions about Obamacare sign-up dangers include several issues and dangers.  They include a high risk of identy theft through poorly secured databases, the use of unqualified personnel with inadequate background checks, and servers that are not operating properly.  There was also mention of costs of a policy for a 40 year old man being higher in one place than another for the same policy and coverage.   Higher costs include higher co-pays and deductibles for policy holders.  Insurance companies are also restricting doctors and hospitals to save money.  Costs much higher than a cell phone.

    1. your identity will always be in danger of theft as I found out when my information was stolen from a bank last year.

    2. Costs for a 40 year old man will always vary from place to place as it does for any insurance. This is not relevant to the Affordable care act.

    3. Health insurance companies always restrict hospitals and doctors to save money.

    4. Where are you getting your facts from? I am no fan of either side of this argument, but your argument is really pulled from thin air here.

    5. Who is to say the staff are less qualified than those you deal with at health insurance company, cable company, or any other company who deals with your private data?

    6. This is not actually a question. If you wish to write a hub on this issue, go ahead, but please research actual facts first, not opinions. I have my issues with the ACA but my issues are all based on fact.

      You forget that you are applying standards set now by competition and risk -- both those are gone under Obamacare. That is a huge fact.

      There are issues, but none of them are mentioned above. Any administrative worker could do the job. Flaco stated that the workers were "unqualified personnel with inadequate background checks". Sounds more like the majority of politicians to me big_smile

    Yes, of course, what terrifying risks. I am actually horrified that I might end up with health insurance. I am quivering in fear that I might have extra money in my pocket at the end of the day.

    These frickin' anti-government, anti-public services lunatics need to give it a rest. Most of us have brains. Telling us that we are somehow better off not having health insurance, or trying to scare us that it is dangerous, all in order to satisfy the brainwashing agenda of their corporate overlords is not going to work.

    If they are happy living as caveman with no government and using leaches as their most advanced medicine than be my guest. They should go ahead and crawl into their miserable little bunkers and fret to their dying days that the ghost of Marx is outside the door trying to get them and leave the rest of us who actually like civilization alone.

    Actually scratch that. What they really ought to do is find a way to network together the brains of everyone in the Tea Party movement. Maybe their brains, only acting as single synapses, could collectively function as a single human equivalent.
