How many times did you hear obama and his flock of parrots say that? Well it was a lie every time they said it and they knew it. I have had Carefirst Health Insurance for many years. We were one of 76,000 families in Maryland, Virginia and DC with Carefirst who got the notice that our policy would no longer be offered. That's just one company in one area. It's estimated that 16 million familes got similar notices from their insurer throughout the country.

And what am I offered to replace it with? A plan that is $400.00 more per month ($4,800.00 more per year) than I pay now AND it has a $6,000.00 deductible. Then they only cover 70%. But it's not all bad. They will cover birth control, prenatal care and artifical insemenation. That should come in real handy as I look forward to my 62nd birthday.

So to deal with 15% of the population who were chronically uninsured, (about 30 milllion) half of whom choose not to buy insurance although they can afford to do so, the democrats have to decided to mess with everyones insurance. Way more people have been notified they are losing their insurance than have signed up for obamacare.

In addition to promising that you can keep your plan and your doctor if you like them, we were also told it would be about $2,500.00 less per year on average. Off by about $7,300.00 in my case. And no, we have no pre-existing conditons.

Let's not even get into the fact that the website that the gov't had 3 years to launch and have spent $634 million on to date is a disaster. I've heard very credible estimates that this website could have been done in half the time for about $20 million. Gives you a lot of confidence that a govt. that lied about the plan and can't even get a website off the ground is going to be competent enough to manage obamacare. We are so screwed.

Even my wife who I love very much but has been a liberal dem her whole life is now pissed. I know it's a small example but I think it may be a trend. If the stupid party (yes the republicans) can just find a candidate who has broader appeal than McCain, Romney, (name the loser candidate that we've seen in the last few elections), the next election should be ours. Even more important the mid terms are a chance to gain ground in congress. Otherwise I think we will be too far down the drain to come back up. It's a very sad state of affairs.

I view it as a Financial Tragedy for one responsible Family at a time. Sadly,the Country voted for this Communist twice. Those of us that still care to do it the old fashioned way-earn it,will struggle on. However,a tide is turning where Folks are shelving their morals and standards and are chosing to use the present Communist Hunta in Washington and are now going on the dole to avoid losing everything they've worked for. I don't blame them. Use the Scum to strengthen yourself,then defeat them with their own aid.......Sound familiar ? :gee:

I am thinking it might be better if my wife quit her job of 15 yrs. We get divorced and just date again. I will let her rent the upstairs and go on welfare so her and my daughter will have ins, and pay me rent.
This is just the tip of the *censored* pile. Wait till the Drs start making claims and the system doesn't work to send the payments. I wonder how many of these college kids that voted for Obama will put their money where their vote is and sign up for Ocare. The system is heavily dependent on young healthy people paying in. Hopefully 2014 will be ours.

The government running healthcare? What a joke! Hey maybe we can get the same people who run the Postal Service to help out!

http://blog.heritage.org/2013/10/01/postal-service-wont-shut-down-but-will-default-on-its-debt/

A perfect way to gain control of the unwashed masses....control their healthcare.

I have been thinking that we do not know the half of it yet.Sign it and then read it ,well I don't believe we have begun to get thru the first few chapters of it yet.The rest will play out as we visit the medical care providers and learn the grimy, money leeching aspects designed to corner us and fleece us.On my recent doctor visit I was told that the government will be providing 30 percent less dollars for medicare patients in 2014 than in 2013.Can we blame the doctors for early retirements and going into research? Keep up with your health,strengthen the immune system,and watch that diet. We are on our own folks. Mike

“Obviously we didn’t do a good enough job in terms of how we crafted the law," Obama said


And I say no *censored* Sherlock... LOL

http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/11 ... erage?lite

President Obama said Thursday that he is "sorry" that some Americans are losing their current health insurance plans as a result of the Affordable Care Act, despite his promise that no one would have to give up a health plan they liked.

"I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me," he told NBC News in an exclusive interview at the White House.
