James Asbill Health care is not a right...As it stands it will never work and everything that demorats told you about it is a lie ... it will not make care more affordable..there are death panels..and you cannot keep your current insurance, you will be paying for coverage that it is medically impossible for you to ever need
Nancy Schmidt Humm so when this is all straightened out and people have cheap health ins and high deductions they go to the hospital get their bill and they just don't pay the difference? That's what's going on now anyway isn't it?
Nancy Schmidt Okay a lot of people sit it out on speeding tickets.. What if everyone who gets caught without Health Ins. just sits it out. The gov. could pay for our food and medical needs. When I get too old to do anything what do material things matter anyway..?
Jo Rebmann Have you all even READ what the ACA is about? There will be /topic/places">places you can get your /topic/insurance">insurance at a rate you CAN AFFORD! Do your research instead of listening to FAUX NEW! This is going to not only save YOU /topic/money">money, but it is going to save the /topic/government">GOVERNMENT /topic/money">money! They will catch things earlier- before they become a disabling feature on a person- and keep more people able to /topic/work">work and pay the /topic/taxes">taxes and such that are needed to run everything instead of a person waiting until something could be disabling or deadly to them.
And for those of you who have religious reasons to not do this- YOU CAN OPT OUT!
Sally Guenterberg Totally wish we had control over this. Well, we did at election time but enough completely uneducated voters and sheep disguised as elected officials voted for it. Case in point: someone posted on facebook a few weeks ago that Obamacare has done so much for the people. You idiot, it hasnt even gone into effect yet!
April Englehardt You also have to look at it this way, a lot of people are employed part-time even working 2 jobs. Yet they are not offered health care through their employers, it's too costly for most of them to purchase on their own even if they are young and healthy, and who supports all the people on medicaid? Something needs to be done, whether it is Obama or someone else the system needs to be reformed
Varnea Dickerson You know it is amazing to me how all these people have so much to say how this man is doing something for people who can not afford health care the same one who say it will kill jobs have them want about the senor citizen whom cant not afford after there medication and food,rent they have nothing left. Or the spouse of a vet.they are not covered thru VA and they have no choice but to find something to help them the little check they get once a month only cover the bills and they still have to eat want about them all of wanted something for nothing shut the heck up when it comes your turn you will find out when you have nothing you will glad the is there for you. I hate these people nothing this does is good enough for them thank you obama I love what your doing keep up the good work Your biggest fan.Varnea Dickerson.
Gary Salisbury .......from my good friend, Doug, who is in the know on this stuff:
MEDICAL EXCISE TAX ON RETAIL RECEIPTS
This is an image of a sales receipt from Cabela's, a popular sporting goods store.
The 2.3% Medical Excise Tax that began on January 1st is supposed to be hidden" from the consumer, but it's been brought to the public's attention by hunting and fishing store Cabela's who have refused to hide it and are showing it as a separate line item tax on their receipts.
I did some research and found directly from the IRS's website information that PROVES this to be true and an accurate portrayal of something hidden in Obamacare that I was not aware of!
Now being skeptical of this I went to the IRS website and found this!
Q1. What is the medical device excise tax?
A1. Section 4191 of the Internal Revenue Code imposes an excise tax on the sale of certain medical devices by the manufacturer or importer of the device.
Q2. When does the tax go into effect?
A2. The tax applies to sales of taxable medical devices after Dec. 31, 2012.
Q3. How much is the tax?
A3. The tax is 2.3 percent of the sale price of the taxable medical device. See Chapter 5 of IRS Publication 510, Excise Taxes, and Notice 2012-77 for additional information on the determination of sale price.
So being more curious I clicked on "Chapter 5 of IRS Publication 510."
And what do I find under "MEDICAL DEVICES" under "MANUFACTURERS TAXES"?
The following discussion of manufacturer’s taxes applies to the tax on:
• Sport fishing equipment;
• Fishing rods and fishing poles;
• Electric outboard motors;
• Fishing tackle boxes;
• Bows, quivers, broad heads, and points;
• Arrow shafts;
• Taxable tires;
• Gas guzzler automobiles; and
I think we have definitely been fooled, if we believe that the Affordable Care Act is all about health care. It truly does appear to be nothing more than a bill laden with a whole lot of taxes that we the people have yet to be aware of.
So Sport, how’s that for CHANGE? Not exactly what you voted for, was it?
Interestingly enough, it is what I voted against.
Nikki Madore Obama Health Care Bill will kill job, alot of doctor will laid off employee, insurance not paid like is use to be, they can't afford to keep all the employee. He remind me of communist forcing people to buy insurance or you will be penalize.
