    You just can't make this stuff up! In order to help pay for Obamacare restrictions were place on health savings accounts to not cover over the counter products the thinking being this would raise revenue for the plan... so now people are going to their doctor to get prescriptions for aspirin and diaper rash cream! This raises the demand for doctor services at s time when many doctors are getting out of the business, denies Obamacare the expected revenue and raises the cost of care!!

    You see this is what happens when intellectual liberal know it alls impose their will upon society! I don't care if he went to harvard, he's an fn idiot!

          The reality is it IS A FAILURE! Hearings are being held today on why the democrats funded this for the next 8 years regardless of who is in congress or the WH! They buired theses provision throughout the 2700 pages which they didn't allow anyone to read until the last minute! Remeber what Pelosi said... we have to pass it to see what's in it... its fraud and it was shoved down our throats!

                O'k, I see. You don't want to comment about what you wrote. You got a right to be wrong. I'll leave you alone.

                Simple to you maybe but I have no idea what you're asking.

                  I'm asking you where were you when Bush push through bills unread. Were you writing somewhere else. Did you not notice the know it all conservatives imposeing their will on society and the world. It seems that the president is the commander and chief only if he is conservative and republican. I'm trying to get you to admit your bias. Lol

                    If you look at Bush's record and the votes on his bills you'll see there was bipartisan support. Obamacare was shoved through with the dems super majority. Obama even had to bribe members of his own party to pass that bill. That wasn't bad enough they had to amend the bill at the same time they passed it and then deem it passed! Say what you want about Bush but he never did anything like that! And meanwhile all the things Bush did that you on the left screamed about... Obama is doing them too and not a word out of you lefties! So don't pull the hypocrite BS on me it wont fly!

    It's not "unintended".

    Who wrote the damned bill? It sure as hell wasn't Obama.

      It was a concoction of some of his socialist friends and of course Lobbyists like insurance and big pharma.

        OH, don't worry, I knew already who had written the bill. I was pointing out that it is clear what it's intention is.

        Make insurance mandatory - demand goes up.

        The AMA still exists to choose how many people can become doctors - Supply won't change as fast.

        Prices have to go up.

      Lady Love: my comment, "Ok" was in resignation of rational diolog with you. Your list to prove your point, only showed how hopeless it is to try to relate with you. I owe you no apology. If I were to ask any rational person why was Obama still dealing with any issue on that list or all the issues they would consider partisan politics. Your answer would be...BS. So I say O'k

        Oh I see... its all Bush's fault! Bush did it first so that makes it ok for Obama to do it! Obama campaigned against all of those things! It certainly was in his power to change them... remember hope and CHANGE? That's such a cop out junko but I expected nothing more from you...your arguments are just drive bt attacks on me and my sources but when confronted with facts you cop out!! Lol dismissed!

    I am having no problem with the new health care plan. My expenses have gone down for prescriptions and medical care. I must be one of the few exceptions to this new plan. The plan has made things better for me instead of worse.

      Lol! It's nothing personal I just think his real calling is community organizer, he's just not cut out to be president.

        How could he be cut out for President when all he has ever done after being elected was spend the majority of his time running for the next highest office?

        Now he's President, there is no higher office, which means he has to actually do some work.  He does have a Messiah complex but unfortunately the office of God isn't up for grabs.

        The result is that he ends up like the fish in the plastic baggies at the end of FINDING NEMO, saying "Now what?"
