Can somebody tell me where I can purchase health insurance for the same as I pay for my cell phone service? I know it must be so because the president said so.

Aren't you cute.

Are you living at or below poverty levels? Then look to your states or the federal exchange.

Must be another geezer on Medicare who doesn't know what healthcare cost. How soon will it be until these geezers pass on to their next life?

Well I know people who think $300 a month for their family's cell phone service is a good deal.

I pay $8.50 a month for my cell phone service so as far as I'm concerned, Obama is a liar.

Neither of those situations are indicative of the average americans, why do you purposefully lie ?

Making a point here cc & bk. The president made a stupidass statement that health insurance could be had for the cost of one's cell phone service. Well, apparently he is lying once again. My cell phone bill is less than $150 a month. Our last insurance bill was $1151 a month, up from $670 the month before. So, instead of being smartasses, tell me where to get this cheap health insurance, like your savior said was available.

No, you're playing cute.

The COST of insurance remains precisely the same, no matter whether you're rich or poor. It's just that if you're poor, the government has promised to make someone else pay for most or some of it.

Well to be fair he did not have the Teleprompter to read off.

If i had to get heath coverage it would be $215 a month with a 10k deductible. I would have to drop my car insurance and not eat food anymore then i can have heath care.

LOL, last month, the cost of my M-I-L's phone, daughter's phone, and MY phone together were... $35.

I can buy "health insurance" for that? What could it POSSIBLY cover?

It costs that much to buy insurance to cover NEWSPAPERS being hauled around in your car.

No, you then have INSURANCE.

And since the insurance has a big deductible, you still have to pay for EVERYTHING out of your pocket AND for the insurance.
