    Why do politicians like Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Debbi Wasserman Schultz and those of the

    Administration continue to deny the damages resulting from the ACA (obamacare).  My cost for healthcare has gone up 400% and my neighbor just informed me his went up 500% and now requires a $12,000 deductible out-of-pocket cost.  Prior to obamacare, my insurance was $5,400 and my neighbors was $5,700 yearly.  Now, mine is $21,600 and my neighbors is $28,500.  We both have a $12,000 deductible and now our medicines are not covered.  So, our out of pocket costs actually will exceed our insurance premiums.  Do you have a similar circumstance?

    What do politicians and ACA have to do with the plan and deductible we choose. Isn't cost dependent on the Insurance providers?

      So your point is insurance companies are to blame for the law that the Democrats passed with no support from Republicans or the majotiy of the public? The law they promised would reduce your premiums and allow you to keep your plan and doctor? LlIES

      The states used to regulate - now Obamacare regulates (failure-care) and the cost is dependent upon the new taxation clauses placed upon the medical practitioners and insurance companies. No one can figure out a law being managed by tyrant rule

    No, there's been no change in my insurance that I get from my employer.

      Well, 1,231 companies have been given a waiver & won't have to deal with it until next year. Is your co. one?  One would ask one's employer what they plan on doing next year and how Obamacare might affect your insurance if it proceeds as planned.

      my employer already has made the change because they did not receive a waiver.  and now I must purchase my own policy.  it is very expensive to get the same coverage that I had last year.

    Why? Because they are all LIARS. They have gotten to where they are by lying and the only thing they know how to do when caught in a lie is to lie about lying. To be a leader in the Democrat party the main requirement is to, lie, lie, lie, until poeple are so numb to the lies they don't know the truth when they see it and frankly expect lies to be the norm. Liberals are not skilled at telling a lie but they are skilled using lies whenever and wherever they can, even when there is no reason to (remember Hil liar y and the sniper fire lie, or the vast right wing conspiracy lie about lying).Everyone knows Shultz is recorded lying about lying (google it if you don't)."Slick Willie" could  look the entire American public in the eye on nationwide TV and lie through his teeth, Pelosi sees dead people, Obama - well he's never spoken anywhere without lying repeatedly and often like with "you can keep your plan" lying that that wasn't what he said (and that's an apology?), lying about lying = the Democrat trademark. of course the word LIBERAL is just an acronym for their playbook:

    L ie

    I nnuendo

    B elittle

    E vade the question

    R aise a straw man

    A ssert superiority

    L ie some more (lie about lying if you have to)

    S peak to dead people (optional Pelosi tactic https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=p … 2W_TTcizWI)

    Racketeering is the practice, by a structured group, of operating an illegal, dishonest and fraudulent scheme or business (a racket). The practice is closely associated with organized crime, since both are conducted by groups. Although racketeering exists in America today an even more insidious and repugnant "racket" has rapidly evolved in American politics from it's infancy of simply making promises (that won't be kept) to get elected into carefully planned and orchestrated LIES by candidates for office, elected officials and their appointees who are operating as a structured group (the Democrat Party). And who would you think deserves the credit for taking dishonest and fraudulent political practices and policies to levels never before imagined?
    Why credit has to go to our Nobel Peace Prize winner, first black (well half black) American president, divider in chief and Messiah to the masses, Barack Hussein Obama, the first but not only Baracketeer of the 21st century. Baracketeer-a candidate for office, elected official and/or their appointees who engage in dishonest and fraudulent political practices and policies, enter Democrat Party!

    The cost of insurance for me and my wife actually went down. They also cover more basic care options than before. If yours went up by such a significant amount, you should check the exchange to see if you can get a better rate.

      I checked the exchange and because of my income, I cannot get assistance.  It appears that I am paying for your reduction.

      Well if that is true Dremer I'd suggest you contact the press - they are only reporting horror stories by liars according to Reid and Carney although I haven't seen anyone on the news claiming what you do.

      My wife and I both work and pay taxes, so if anything, we're paying for our own reduction. And there are other stories like mine, but the media doesn't focus on them as much because they don't have that sensational quality that revs people up.

      Sorry M.T. Dremer, but your story just does not add up.  According to the investigators, Obamacare has increased all insurance costs when taking into account the deductibles for the new basic care options. And 30 million are still uninsured.

      You can disbelieve my story all you want, it doesn't mean you're right. Most of the people who complain about rate hikes are the same people who refuse to sign up on healthcare.gov. And the uninsured are choosing to pay the penalty.

      What penalty? Didn't you hear? All you have to do is sign a hardship form, no proof of hardship required& you are exempt from the mandate for two years. Dems shut down the gvmnt because they wouldn't let republicans waive the mandate,now they hav

      M.T.Dremer - Thanks for suggesting that I continue to search.  I now have free insurance due to the latest exemption created by the President.  So, you and others are now paying for my insurance with your tax dollars.  And, I can bank my $20 grand.

      Congress shut down the government because a few tea-party extremists had the republicans by the balls. They knew that if Obamacare reached the public, people would start to like it and their years of propaganda would be for nothing.

      tb, really you should limit comments to people from this planet...don't you think?

      M.T.Dremer-you obviously seek false entity. One that is currently being challenged by the righteous who see the truth. Obamacare is recognized as a failure since it has expanded the uninsured.  The TEA Party knows the truth-you should seek it too.
