I have another couple of friends, both independent contractors, one of whom is a Republican, whose monthly premiums have been slashed by 2/3 or even more thanks to Obamacare. Shall I pass along your regrets to them as well?
No, pass the regrets on to the taxpayers who will be paying for the subsidies for people such as these.

Get back to me if you find anyone under age 40 who was pretty healthy (which the vast majority of people are) who have gotten their premiums slashed who are are paying full price without subsidies.

I'll be waiting a very long time to hear a story about that.

I bet your "friend" is over age 50 or pretty poor or both.

The only ones foolish are the right wing sheep that believe the fabricated lies told to them by their propaganda masters.

Exactly what I mean. ObamaCult members like you deserve the lying rw. Your psychological problem in not being able to admit millions were hurt by Ocare amounts to following The Leader, lying.

Who are these "millions?" Exactly, you can't name anything because the radical right wing lemmings believe everything Beck and Limbaugh tells them without question.

I had my insurance dropped.
I now will have better coverage.
The ACA does not cause armageddon and gas chambers.

It's ok to think for yourself and not just do as you're told

You're good at tossing around OCult words like sheep, lemmings, Beck, Limbaugh, blahblahblah. Armageddon and gas chambers ?

AP poll---

"In the survey, nearly half of those with job-based or other private coverage say their policies will be changing next year - mostly for the worse. Nearly 4 in 5 (77 percent) blame the changes on the Affordable Care Act ."

For every story like yours, there are dozens who've had higher premiums, deductibles, copay. When the large employer mandate kicks-in, millions more will raise heck. Then we'll have the bailout of health insurers. Ugly.

Those of us who are non-partisan view hacks like you and hacks from the right as equally humorous and, if you believe what you write, pitiful.

Those stories are the exception, not the rule.

The millennials who put President Obama in the White House are dropping their support in droves because Obamacare has been outed as the Unaffordable Care Act.
