King Obama affordable health care

Reply
 
has anyone seen the cost of this affordable health care. My son is in college and for him to have coverage the cost would be $310 a month with $5000.00 deductible. That there is crazy. The name needs to be called Obama's unaffordable health care.

high prices
Wow that's crazy, when I got out of college for the same deductible mines was at $71 for the cheapest for just emergencies, every year it climbed nearly 20 a month and was soon 140 even though I never used it and got healthier each year,definitely could afford 310 when I was in college, I could hardly afford 71, darn system is wacked. My wife is a doctor and complains everyday about the new health laws which cost more and don't allow use of the most optimal medications in many cases, yes get cancer and you may not be able to get the stuff that works which used to be covered.

Where did he get the quote
I ask because if that came from the website the cost quoted is less than it would really be. They set up the system to under quote cost.

Insurance costs.
That still sounds like a deal to me. Currently I am 59 years old and insurance for me and my wife was 1425 per month and raising to 1650 per month come Dec. 1.

obama who?
NO ONE is paying my way. I'M the one who is footing the bill for the uninsured. I'm the one paying for this obamacare. I'm the one who pays very high taxes so these programs work.

That quote was from blue cross and blue shield
and that was the cheapest I could find. You have to go to one of the carriers to get a real quote not the gov web site.

Your son is also eligible for subsidies to pay for that insurance. If he is not employed it will cost him nothing. If he is employed the most he will have to pay is about 6.5% of his net income or something around there. The balance would be covered under tax credits or re-imbursments from the government. Thats what I am looking for. I am tired of paying very high taxes year after year only for the indigents to get free food,free housing,free medical, free everything.

Exactly so if you don't work you get your insurance paid for but if you get up every morning leave your family behind all day to make money and have to pay these ridiculous fees who you think is picking up the tab. I understand the guys son is in school and maybe can't work but there is some that just don't want to work. The government wants us all to quit working and depend on them. We can't let that happen who ever voted for that psychopath really didn't know what they were doing they wanted hope and change well I hope you are enjoying the change

hmmmmmmm
Every single politician needs to be fired and start alllllllll over again. They are running this country off a cliff.
Honestly, i wish they would give states the option of succeeding. Maybe i have not thought it all thru, but 20 years from now, i can't imagine succeeding being worse than where we will be.

Recall
The people in Colorado signed petitions and had a recall election had voted a couple of their politicians out of office….bet they didn't think that would happen. This needs to happen all over the country.

Hold on........
EVERY TIME someone gets to swipe their FREE healthcare card, someone else has to swipe their TIMECARD to pay for it.

Yes, this is nothing but another giant entitlement program again financed on the backs of those that work and pay taxes. Socialism is wonderful until you run out of other people's money!

Democrats own this!
Just a couple weeks ago the Republicans were terrorist,communist, evil and holding the country hostage etc. Now, the Democrats who crammed this bad law down Americans throat are saying we should delay Obamacare implementation until the bugs are worked out. Anyone with a brain can see its because they are up for election now and people will wake up when they go to get their Obamacare and see the price . Most Obama followers think is free. By the way insurance subsidies are going to be taxable. Ask the IRS.
Louisiana already had free health care at Charity hospital. They could have put a Charity hospital in every major city cheaper than Obamacare. Redistribution of wealth is evil. A very special thanks to Mary Landrieu and Cedric Richmond for their ignorance. So when you vote, remember the politicians who screwed the working people to give to the lazy.

Think of it this way. Once you pay your taxes it is no longer your money it belongs to the politicians it looks like we have no control of it anymore . have A lot more to say but would get in trouble.

Charles I agree with you. They spend spend spend cause its not their money, ITS OURS that they waste. I would say a lot but I won't. I've already been in trouble (but nothing came of it) when one of the ACORN workers (working census) came trespassing on my property at night and I stuck a 9mm in his face. His supervisor in DC wrote me a letter, I told him to bring his sorry butt down south but bring a deputy with a search warrant if he wanted on my property. It was NONE of the governments business what I had and who was in my house, how much we made. I've done my time for my country, but the country has been taken over by socialism and communism, the very things I took an oath to defend this country against. My oath doesn't include protecting a commie socialist dictator and his Brown Shirt Troopers. I also agree, that ALL politicians be evicted from office and start over with 1 TERM limits on EVERYBODY, can't run for re-election for the same position. Rescind all benefits for the free loading politicians. They will GET what we GET (albeit a smaller pay scale and no traveling expenses) and no more signing bills they DON'T READ. Evict the socialist judges too.

Wake up Louisiana
Like I posted before Mary is the problem in Louisiana and she will get reelected because people don't get out and vote or work against her. Understand google is now going to fix it another billion I am sure. With all the billions being spent to fix and put in service we could have given the 20percent free health insurance. Don't understand how Obama can spend billions like this to fix a problem we already spent billions on.

care
I voted against Obama. but that being said I do believe there are a lot of people who are legitimately poor and need help from us. not everyone can have the high paying jobs, someone has to bag your groceries and clean the bathrooms, ect. but there is a lot of abuse of the system from those who choose not to work, I agree. people who work 40hrs a week and still qualify from low income or who are legitamatly disabled I have no problem with them having the help, my heart goes out to these people. what we need is someone to check up on if these people really need assistance, and some piss test you fail your on your own.

Queen Mary?
Not sure how Ms Landrieu fits in here in Louisiana unless of course you are in her 'Free Stuff for Your Vote' parade. Correct me if i am wrong, but didn't she voted For ObamaCare, against Gun owners rights, and supports taxing Online purchases? Her reason for the latter is that she boasts that it will 'raise revenue for Louisiana'. Duh! In the same way it will raise revenue for any state that I make an online purchase from. A tax is a tax no matter how much you sugar coat it. Can't wait for the 'No Mary Landrieu' signs to become available. If I am wrong about this, please set me right.

obama care
Wait for early next year and 96 million people get kicked off there insurance and they get sticker shock from having to get obama care. I'm waiting for some relatives to see their costs. Also, great job with the sign up. Only 6 people in the US signed up the first day.

plan to fail
i read a report that stated this whole AHC act is deemed to fail so the government can take over the whole system, major doctors are already planning there early retirement out west, they know the future, it might take a year or 2 but it will fail and when that happens, were all $CrEwEd.

early retirement?
You know, I tired of hearing all the older guys at my work complain about having to wait until they turn 62/65 to retire, because they can't afford healthcare. My solution. I'm gonna work hard for a few more years. Pay off most of my bills. Sell the house for the equity. Buy a cheap unrestricted lot near Toledo Bend. Build a small but livable place for my family, that has a minimal property tax. Quit my great paying full time job for a part time job. Combine that income with my investment income, which is not considered an earned income. Get on my FREE!!! heath care plan. Then fish and hunt until my judgement day. I'm gonna let the fools who willfully contribute to the trash heap our government keeps piling on top of us. Keep contributing please!!! Life doesn't have to be hard if you learn to live simple. The ACA gives me a wonderful reason to retire before I'm 40. I don't particularly like working shift work anyway.

'investment income, which is not considered an earned income'

Well investment income means you are rich. How long do you really think it will be before the 'it isn't earned income', will fly! The communist/baby killer party are going to close that loop hole.

not rich
Mike, I'm not rich by any means. My post was a bit of sarcasm. My point was this. I worked for a union shop for a few years. I used to hear union members complain about the union day in and day out. But, each and every one continued to pay dues. They wouldn't attend a single union meeting, send a letter to the national union, nothing. Only complain. People in the U.S. do the same when it comes to politics and policy. The politicians can do what ever they want, as long as people blindly contribute. I'm thinking it's time to stop the contributions.

all I know is obamacare and Obama is trash!!! why do some of you think there will be another presidential election at the end of his term??? correct me if I am wrong, but I think the law says, if there is a major war we are in at the time of a presidential election, there will be no election and the sitting president will stay president? call me crazy that's ok!!! look at what he's stirring up across. he has a plan to be king and I am afraid he will succeed! how many times has he broke constitutional law so far and what happened to him, nothing!!! what can we do vote that's it! we tried that and it didn't work??? GOD help us!!!
