I just saw some poll results on the Drudge Report that indicate that 42% of Americans do not know that Obamacare (The Affordable Health Care Act) is the law of the land. Are we a nation of idiots?

My guess would be that most people won't realize we have it until it is all phased in, most parts aren't in yet so most people are still without healthcare. As always those that are on the public dole still get every type of care at the expense of the few that work & pay taxes. Sometimes you got to wonder which ones are the idiots. :oops: :mad:

I guess this has nothing to do with costs, don't forget all candidates from both parties in the past few decades have all promised to do something about the raising cost of health care but it's never been done, I wonder why? http://www.alternet.org/how-big-pharma- ... ng-country

You guys seemed to miss the point somewhere. My tax guy told me if I didn't spend at least a certain amount on health care I would be fined or taxed at years end by the affordable health care act. He showed me the numbers and at about this time last year I was $2000 under what the government "felt" I should be paying for health care. At the end of the year our health care provider comes out with a wooping increase of over $2000. I wonder where they came up with the number for their rate increase. I can no longer search for inexpensive health care plans for myself and my employees (Sorry guys you and your families are on your own). The government in one way or another fixed the rates, or at least the starting points. Because the insurance company knows the laws they knew they had room to raise their rate. Is it any wonder insurance companies helped support Obama care. But it gets better. The government was planning on funding the "Affordable health care act" buy taxing people like myself for not paying the certain amount for health care. Now that I am paying enough (because the insurance company knew the amount) the government can not tax me. So where does the money come from now??? :mad: We need to defund Obamacare now, it will never work. The only ones health care is going to be affordable for, are those not paying for it or the rich. The average working class gets screwed again. :no1:

Plumb, I think you may need a new tax guy, the thing your talking about doesn't even begin to start until 2014. I think there is more misinformation out there than real, I'm not saying by any means that this is a perfect plan but as with everything it's what was put in by both sides to get something passed & it can always be refined & changed I don't know why some want so much to protect the ones that have been ripping us off unless they themselves are in turn part of the problem.

This year or next year it doesn't matter the government set the mark and the insurance companys know how much to charge. You either pay them or the government. In both the House and the Senate the "affordable health care act" received only one,(1), uno, vote from the republicans. This was in no way the two party's getting together and coming up with something good for the public. This is a abomination the democrats passed to buy votes. :o

Seventeen of the nation's largest insurance companies are now reporting that insurance premiums are set to spike anywhere from 100 percent to 400 percent for many Americans in 2014. These insurance companies, including the likes of Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and the Kaiser Foundation ...

I really don't get this. My health insurance goes up every year, always has even before Obamacare. What pisses me off is how the healthcare industry charges different rates for people with and with out Insurance. Why would you charge different prices for the same care? Gotta suck out every penny so the doctor you rarely get to see and could give 2 shits makes his mid to upper 6 figure salary, lets not let the board of the hospital go without making their millions too. They after all are the ones who do the work right! :mad3:

Since you brought it up Anthony this might explain some of the costs, then if you couple this with the fact that hospitals have to treat regardless of ability to pay, believe it or not the taxpayer ends up paying their tab as well in higher taxes or increased care costs it all comes down to the lowly worker that is trying to do the right thing. http://work.chron.com/average-salary-ce ... -3693.html I might add that most of these CEOs & higher staffs have little to no medical background.

Who thinks insurance premiums would have spiked 100% to 400% in 2014 if Obamacare had never happened?

I think it's a given that they WOULD NOT have. Every month someone discovers more crap buried in that bohemoth of a bill. When it finally comes out in full force, it will ruin the healthcare industry as we know it. Just a big, giant scam to make you poorer and poorer, and make government fatter, and more bloated than ever in history.


Funny - this doctor scrapped insurance altogether, and guess what happened to his prices?

Oh, and for those not inclined ... when you see blue text, that means there's a link to the source of the information. :idea:
