Um... where are all those valiant defenders of ObamaCare that were here a year ago? Totally flaming anyone who dared to have any doubts about how Democrat promises square with reality.
Just some of the adjectives applied to the roll out by radical Tea Party news outlets like the Washington Post and the New York Times, CBS and NBC.

I beg to differ...I just looked up my family....my monthly payout would be from $1,300.00 per month to $3,000.00 per month with a $4,000.00 deductible to get close to the coverage offered through my husbands insurance. I am ill....I am disabled...I don't qualify for "assistance" with my premium (if I needed it)...we "make too much money".
For the gold it is the same premiums with a $10,000.00 deductible.
For silver its a $15,000.00 deductible!!!
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
A rant from me the other day.....
Then you sign a disclaimer that you have no expectation of privacy??? REALLY?? The government is NOT excluded from HIPAA.
The POTUS stated...If you like your health care..you can keep it.... That is not true.
"You won't have to change doctors" another lie.
The system is fractured..... but the cure is not developing another branch of government to oversee. The poor have free care they have medicaid...that doesn't change. The use and abuse of the system continues because they don't run it like the HMO and PPO will continue changing nothing The government will not use the ACA so it doesn't affect them...it affects again the middle class....the part that is the working poor. The hump their butts at 3 jobs just to make ends meet...they don't qualify for welfare because they actually do work...their jobs offer no insurance....so now they hump their ass waiting table at 3 restaurants to live paycheck to paycheck...only to find themselves now being required to carry insurance...insurance they cannot afford....certainly not to the tune of a thousand dollars a month.
HOW is the helping them? It isn't...it doesn't ....however it does help the government gain money in penalties to line their corrupt pockets...it helps the insurance companies widen their profit margins as the public is forced to buy insurance...helping no one but themselves and their million dollar salaries and yearly bonuses.
I am disabled...I thankfully have insurance through my husbands work. Over night I became unable to work. When you are busting your behind to put food on the table....keep a roof over your head ....ANY EXPENSE is devastating.
You want to help me????? You want to help the WORKING POOR???? The very people who bust their behind with 3 jobs at barely above minimum wage....to still never have enough money payday to pay day.....people who don't take public assistance...and don't qualify by the way because they work....and MAKE THEM...MANDATE THEM to come up with ANY AMOUNT OF MONEY or they will be penalized and fined for MORE MONEY THAT THEY DON"T HAVE...WHO exactly is that benefiting????? That hard working family that lives on the edge of homelessness and HUNGER??? I THINK NOT!
With a $13,000.00 deductible...how is having healthcare insurance benefit them....they are STILL paying out of pocket for healthcare until they have a catastrophic event...$13,000.00 deductible??? How is that benefiting any one??? EXCEPT the insurance company for the monthly bill they expect you to pay and the government for the penalty they impose? tell me how does that help the little guy already struggling to rub two pennies together.....certainly NOT the little guy.
