Hey, give obama a break, he is trying to do a good thing. Give him some time to make it better. Everything isnt perfect. It wasn't perfect before. The insurance companies had total control over everything, and insurance costs were still skyrocketing.

Personal loans, aka credit card limits, are up 30%. There is you improving GDP. The big banks borrow money off the FED at near 0% and ard giving credit cards to anybody witha pulse at a rate of 15, 20, even 30%. Thats your growth....more debt.

The unemployment numbers are created by NOT counting millions upon millions of unemployed americans by statistical trickery. If tjese people were still counted unemployment would be 14.9%

The housing market is a bubble being pumped up by 85 billion dollars of printed money every month. The FED is buying about 90% of all homes on the market.

Basically, we're screwed and its happened right in front of your face.

Obamacare is a sinister pc of legislation that is not going anywhere. You are owned becayse of the,debt that has been intentionally placed upon your,shoulders. Your voices, regardless of your approval or disapproval of govt have been,silenced by,that very govt. You've lost. You now need to exit the,system. You have one final chance to protect your personal economic sovreignty....bitcoin or precious metals.

Bitcoin is, by far, thebest asset class on the planet and the,future. All the big banks are going to fail soon. Bitcoin is now worth 800 per US Dollar. It sill eventually eclipse 50,000. Every investment and,hedgefund manager will have to move into it as the dollar dies.

All hail Obamajesus! Bwahahah.....

When talking about my health I would rather have better treatment. What good is some one saying I "am covered" if I can't get the procedure because of long waits, because no one that can perform it accepts Obamacare, I cant pay the deductible, less doctors, declining medical advancement.

Seriously you would truly have to have zero brains to trust government to salvage this mess after they created it.

The website and database are not even done! Get it bots? No gliches, it wasn't complete. They are reporting it was less than 2/3 complete when it launched. Who the*****does that???? After 3 years and 600 million dollars it is nowhere near running.

Sorry but based on what I have been saying for the last five years and what we are witnessing today it is an undeniable fact that blues, resist, a few others and I are infinitely more intelligent than Danieltard, Reallytard, Coaleater, Hankpank, featherbrain, (I will leave twizz out of this), oh and twerker, warrenproud, Jtoday.

The author of this piece obviously made half of it up! No one has Obamacare coverage so how are you saying it is better?? And what is your gauge on being better? To what standard are you holding it up to?

The medical treatment isn't better, We know that because it is reported that people will be losing their doctors and hospitals. Top tier hospitals and clinics will not be accepting 90% of Obamacare plans. So it eliminates choice.

So what is better??

We know that for hardworking contributors the costs will almost double. Democrats admit this for crying out loud.

So what is better???

Oh, free abortions, free birth control pills, maternity care for males, sex changes are all included now.

the writer is an idiot.

Resistalie: Sorry pal no fees for pap smears, mammograms, colan exams,

Let's hope you don't lose your house and bank account when the Bill collector shows up at your door and says pay up for your cancer treatment. If you would have had OBAMA CARE you would have been covered. That's why 60% of bankruptcies happen to people who cant pay their medical bills.

Well seems the patients are in charge of the asylum. "The objective was to take over your life." And then what happens???? "Jan 21 2016." Do the Republicans become the bad boys if they should win that presidential election? So we lose "CONTROL" till the Republicans win an election. what does "CONTROL" mean?????

So what happens in all those Republican Southern states when Obama care is placed in "CONTROL."

Lot of low information people trying to scare somebody .

AFRET1 WHAT HAPPENS IF THE REPUBS WIN THE PRESIDENCY?

Yes the coverage is better under obamacare, the problem unfolding around the country is nobody can afford the cadillac obamacare plan premiums, copays and deductibles that cover pap testing, mammograms, drug rehab etc. People are supposed to be able to select teh coverage they can afford, not be told by a big eared marxist what coverages they need to have in their plans. If the people dont revolt over this then there really is no hope, resist them at every turn push back. If i get dumped off my employer plan I will be paying cash at the doctor, if i get sick or in a car wreck they have to treat me anyway.

LibSerf, PMSDNC forced him to apologize for his comments. I guess that's the difference between using a slur directed at people who probably watch your network versus a disgusting misogynistic slam at a woman who doesn't watch your network. For one, you lose your job. For the other, you just need to apologize and all is forgiven.

I suppose a backhanded compliment is better than none. Thanks.

Explain this...Mitt Romney was the Republican nominee. He created healthcare in Mass. similar to Obamacare. His justification for being against Obamacare is 'It worked in Mass. but might not be right for the whole country'. I would believe that if Obamacare was actually a single program. It is not. One of the reasons the web site was not working properly was that the rules are different in each State. So it is not a national program.

Obama: "If you like your health-care plan, you will be able to keep your health-care plan. Period."

Groucho Marx: "Who you gonna believe? Me, or your own eyes?"

It was suspected, and now it's proved . Obama is a Marxist! LOL

Every single Dem who voted for this law shares in the responsibility. None of them read it before signing buts that's no excuse. They all had a hand in these individual cancellations and in the employer cancellation to come. This economic mudslide will hit the middle class the hardest so that folks like Mr Heltzel can get a subsidized (rigged marketplace) plan. What turns out to be better for you Mr Heltzel means your youthful neighbors pay the difference. It goes without saying that somebody somewhere is going to be on the receiving end of this redistribution law.

Why is it that Obama believes that he can unilaterally make changes to something that was passed into law? Why is it that whenever a Democrat politician is asked if they wil participate in Obamacare, they use the fall back that they already have insurance? How can you all support such a piece of legislation that is obviously flawed?

Well, Mr Heltzel, let's discuss a few things here. First of all, the "ACA" forces people into coverage that they don't need and in many cases don't want. To cover these things, it forces them into higher payments. It forces people who could not afford to buy insurance in the past into buying insurance that is more expensive than the policies that they could not afford in the past. President Obama and the rest of the Democrats who said it would not affect people who already had coverage lied about that "fact". When Republicans pointed out the lies of the Democrats, they were called racists in an effort to try to silence any debate. Last month, the GOP tried to force the administration to delay the individual mandate for 1 year. They were vilified for their efforts. Now, Obama wants to delay the individual mandate for a year. Why is it okay now, but was bad when the GOP tried it? Why is it that the administration's biggest supporters are all exempt from it?

" It ain't easy finding a good caring MD these days. "

And now we come to why the liberals are all so behind the ACA. They want to punish healthcare workers because they don't believe that they are "caring" enough. Add to that, in the opinion of most liberals, healthcare workers are overpaid. Funny how eople who are pushing for an increase in minimum wage are so against people who work hard for their money.

" It ain't easy finding a good caring MD these days. "

Yep, wait until the ACA tells you you can not see him or her anymore. Wait until your doctor tells you he will not take you. THEN lets hear your praises if that happen. But we know you will lie and not tell anyone the truth.

Funny, I was told it would not be until Jan. 14th. By HealthCare.gov. So, who is lying, you or the worker on the computer. We all know who it is.
