Kristi Anglen Our health insurance costs spiked because of this law. I understand the need for it, but now we're going to pay $100 more a month but we make too much money for a "break" via the bill. Makes no sense. Costs more for people who are already insured?
Carmen Gelinas please remember who pays for the health care when an uninsured goes to the ER for a cold? The Hospital must treat that individual which adds to the hospital 's costs. We the insured pay for it with increased heath care costs, including insurance, and taxes. Individuals who are on Medicare pay 100+ for medicare supplements since if you are only on Medicare you must pay of a medical bill as it is.
Cathy Eller Just found out our insurance will cost us 295. a month we can't afford that. Either will have to get divorced so that our income isn't together or stop working. Husband really upset, that's justs my insurance he's is VA. I only go to the doc twice a year for 120. the punishment for not getting it is 360 so I'm better off without it until 2016. The punishment for not conforming is higher then will have to save to pay the IRS.
Rick Gill You don't like it when your representatives vote for something just because it comes from a member of a particular party? Have you happened to notice the Obama Health Care Bill opponents in congress? They always include 100% of the republicans! It is the same thing for anything the president is in favor of.
Mel P I have been against the Affordable Care Act since before it was passed into law. I hope people are staying on top of their representatives to see what they are and are not voting for. Voting for someone because he gives a good speech or is with a particular political party is no way to vote. Be informed!
Kris Stowers I am not willing to force my children to pay for my healthcare. Anything that has to be shoved down our throats, blatantly lied about and still being pushed even after its been proven to be an expensive hot mess- no thanks.
Emily Jansen There is a lot of misleading information and confusion on this whole thing. If the children in politics could start and act like adults maybe they could get together and work out a program and make this work for this supposedly great country
Ginny Soules There has never been a president who has spent so much of the taxpayers dollars on commercials for a program that is financially sucking this country dry and helping so few. The ACA is a failure and it will only get worse.
Denise Glover Oh, don't even get me started with this. Obama is crazy for even starting this up. I was listening to Rush Limbaugh one morning, and he was telling all the things that Obama was trying to renig on and blaming others for HIS mistakes due to this Obamacare. I wished that I had a recording of that show, so that I can get it out to everyone. Obama is the worst crook there ever was elected.
Maria Nizzardo Durfee Any healthcare program that has to be FORCED on the people is wrong to start with. This LAW should be abolished.. cancer patients are being denied their previous covereage because of this law. its wrong and people will more than likely lose their insurance then gain some. open your eyes people. if ti was so damn good congress and the presdent would be on it too. Also, if people coldnt afford healthcare BEFORE the law, HOW on earth is it noe Possible for them to Magically afford it now becsue Obama made it a law? They cant and they wont. Disgusting
Tiffany Wood Ok seriously this topic is dang over rated! The only reason people are making such a huge deal about it is because it is Obama! Republican's made this bill, they wanted it, they proposed it, but it was unpopular in the house and did not get passed. But Obama got it passed. People seriously need to quit boo hooing over this and accept it. We are one of the only major countries that do not take care of our poor, sick, veteran's or elderly and it is just sad that people are making such a big fuss about people who work their arses off but still can't afford medical insurance and with this bill they can. This is just as ignorant as people against the new gun law that he is trying to pass. He's not taking anyones guns he's making it so a guy who just got dumped can't go buy a guns and shoot his girlfriendskids then her! Yeah that happened to my friend and if he had to of waited 6 months he wouldn't of done it. People need to open their eyes and see what Obama is trying to do. He is trying to make this country a better place in the future for our children. But people are against him and fighting him every inch of the way. Even the Republican's have said they will not pass anything he proposes regardless if it's good for the country! Seriously?? What has America come to? Is it so bad that a black Democrat is trying to make this country a better place? Cause when ever I hear anyone complain about him the biggest things are he is black or he is a Muslim terrorist that he isn't American. Really? That's just as bad as saying "Hey Germany the Jews are the reason we lost the war lets kill them". If anyone knew anything about him they would know his father was Muslim yes but he was not even raised by his father he was raised by his mother and grandmother in fricking Hawaii, sorry but if that makes him a terrorist some people are just complete idiots and need to go back to school and actually pay attention. Oh and yeah I am one of those filthy liberals everyone hates so go on and bash me and make yourself look like an idiot.
Christine Selvage Debbie you drive me crazy!!!! I am tired of I have been a nurse for 35 yrs!!! I have been in medical field for 20yrs and and you so don't your facts!! 1 .2 million signed up but 5 million lost their insurance!!! hmmmmm whats up with that?
