  1. dennis bausch

    another reason to read a bill before voting on it.

    1. keep in mind that our congress is exempted from the laws
      the “we the people” are forced to live with.

  2. Obama can rot in Hell It’s none of his fricken business If I carry Healthcare Insurance or not He’s not more then a Socialist Dictator hell bent on destroying this country.

  3. Obamacare is a no brainer for many…..Pay the tax…pay for services out of pocket…when anything big comes up jump on the can’t be denied bandwagon! Stupid system built to implode…..creating the crisis for single payer!

    1. Todd, you are absolutely correct– this system was intended to fail, at the cost of many dollars and the dislocation of resources, in order to set the stage for complete government control of health care. The statists create the ‘solution’, then follow up with more ‘solutions’to the problems caused by the first one.

  4. “This won’t cost you one dime!”

    What a liar our *resident is!

    I’ve seen the returns Block has prepared…..the fees it charges could buy a lot of healthcare.

    1. Just shoot the messenger. You should be blaming this lousy healthcare plan

    I think this is awesome. 100 million taxpayers are going to be slapped in the face with this right before the 2014 election. Hahahaha!

    Not that it will help. We are doomed. Economic collapse is inevitable. http://www.aei-ideas.org/2012/06/the-7-scariest-facts-from-the-new-cbo-long-term-budget-forecast/

    Of course, I think this will happen way before then, because CBO didn’t assume that a socialist would be in the White House.

    I;m sorry, but if you all didn’t know what ‘Affordable’ meant, then who is the dummy here? It’s a great law, people will finally be able to afford insurance, MDs won’t have to cut staff because of too many patients with no care coming to their offices as well as the hospitals going bankrupt or not being able to keep up with modern equipment b/c they got too many patients going thru the ERs and then staying in a bed until well without insurance. Live with a disease, then lose your job and guess how many insurance companies will insure you with a pre-existing condition? NONE! Walk in those shoes and then see how you feel about this great law. I am amazed at how uncaring some Americans are now days and also who think they don’t need insurance and would rather save that money. Yep, until they get a disease or in an accident, they run up huge bills and then have to go bankrupt. Who pays for all of the aforementioned? Come on people, simple answer. We ALL do! Insurance and medical rates go up. Be smart and think it through, this is a good law. Time will teach you hopefully. I pray you don’t learn the hard way.

      Great law? Yes, that must be why Democrats did not read it before passing it.

      Great law? Yes, that must be why Big Corporations, Big Unions, Congressional staff and even IRS workers want to be exempted from it.

      Great law? Yes, that must be why Walgreens, who has $million legal department, decided to drop insurance for it’s 160,000 employees

      Great law? Yes, that is why it has grown to over 20,000+ pages of rules and regulations. You have to read the over 20,000+ pages to see, quote Nancy Pelosi, “All the good things in this bill”

      USA is not a mean country. We want healthcare for those who need it. We, mostly, are also not a stupid country. Every forecast, prediction and justification for Obamacare has been proven a lie. In exchange for these false promises and lies, we have a 20,000+ pages of new government regulations NOBODY can fully understand. What people can understand is this:
      The people will be more controlled and poorer. The government and lawyers will be richer and more powerfull.
