don't worry though, it's not O's fault, even though the legislation was his signature accomplishment:

I read where there are unions complaining that costs are getting too high for them to continue offering insurance.

They have found out that the claim that if you like your current insurance you can keep it might not have been very accurate.

For the record, I support the idea of everyone being covered in some sort but Obamacare is an utter mess.

So the people that could not afford insurance before Obamacare still can't afford insurance after Obamacare.
And these were the very people that the bill was supposed to help.

I can only shake my head. Nothing our government does anymore surprises me.

I believe every American should have access to the same plan Congressmen enjoy at the same cost. Why should employees have better benefits than their employers?

And it's the unions that have those "cadillac plans" that will face a 40% excise tax under Obamacare.

This is going to turn into "Everybody into the POOL, insurance pool that is"

Well on another thread we are exploring the possibility that we can kill people if we can't afford them.

But this would mean The One wasn't being truthful.

Didn't you read though, it's not his fault? It's Congress' fault, and Congress has really low approval numbers.

And there never seems to be glitches with the pork or new taxes in these bills.
They go off without a hitch. Only the taxpayer benefits get screwed up.

Nancy was wrong. They should have read the bill before they passed it and fixed the wrongs within it.

Actually it's the fault of DEMOCRATIC Congressmen/women. Not a single Republican signed on to this piece of junk.
