At this point, Obamacare has only resulted in creating millions new uninsured people.
Well of course 6 million is next to nothing but 1 million is amazingly big and wonderful. Goes right along with my $1800 deductible and 80% benefits being lousy and abusive, while my shiny new ObamaCrap policy with its $5,000 deductible and 50% benefits above that is supposedly terrific.

Getting totally hosed is like going on a picnic, and outlawing the quaint practice of just paying out of pocket for minor routine preventive care makes sense. Down is up, black is white, and new ObamaCrap policyholders are going to love the experience of learning about "deductibles" and "coinsurance" whether they are subsidized or not.

Another right-winger with a horror story. Literally every one of you has seen an insane increase in their premiums. What a coincidence. You forgot to mention that your coverage is way worse now too! You and every other conservative.

Anyway, the December surge will look like child's play next to the one that precedes the March 31st deadline. It'll be a photo finish to that 7 million CBO projection. Don't you shills wish it were mid-October again?

Apparently statistics aren't your strong point. So, 47 million (or whatever the made up number is now) don't have insurance and Obama is going to ave his hand and give it to them. Question for you is how many have to see sharp increases to make that happen?

In the words of Ron White. "I don't know how many it would have taken to kick me out by I know how many they had."

The number of people seeing sharp increase in every part of their healthcare is growing and the number of people receiving "freebies" is no where near the number the master planners were hoping for. You'll be luck to keep democratic seats in the most liberal of places after people feel the full ramifications the abomination know as Obamacare. The best part about it all, the idiots trying to distance themselves from having supported it have no clue how to get those pesky bumper stickers off their cars (and buses).

Sheesh. Did you know that a $5,000 deductible is worse than an $1800 deductible? Do you understand that a 50% coinsurance requirement out of pocket is not as good as a 20% coinsurance requirement? You are pretty free with your stereotypes about rightwingers, but you are not evidently very good at arithmetic.

You accuse me of being a conservative and a rightwinger. Try this on for size: Obamacare only ends up covering HALF of the uninsured. Many of the paycheck-to-paycheck crowd that gets subsidized policies will still not be able to afford actual health care, with Obamacrap's high deductibles and high coinsurance. I believe that every citizen should have basic care, regardless of whether or not they can carry their own weight. ObamaCrap is a huge fail as far as this objective goes.

There is only one shill here, and it is the one that is defending the amazing program that took a screwed up health care system and somehow, against all odds, MADE IT WORSE! Congratulations to you.

So who buys your health insurance? You obviously are not a participant in the individual market, which has basically been dismantled and taxed to oblivion by ObamaCrap.

Oh boy! Just wait until the 7 million learns the meaning of "deductible" and "coinsurance" and "out of pocket." They'll all be very, very happy....until they have a claim. Then they will be very angry at the people who oversold Obamacare.

Default Last Minute Decision by Sotomayor

Catholic organizations made a last-minute effort Tuesday to get the Supreme Court to block portions of President Obama's health care law that will force them to provide health insurance for students and employees that includes birth control.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor halts Birth control mandate for Catholic group

This is getting more and more interesting.
