Wow - Aimee sure paints a rosy picture of the monstrosity called Obamacare, Failing to mention the fines to businesses and individuals that opt out, the fact that the IRS runs it, the fact that many states won't implement it, the fact that now the government will be making your health care decisions, etc., etc......Blah, blah, blah, She needs to crawl out from under the president's desk and take a breather.

OOOhh.... I know...How about an economy killing trend...and medical care for those that choose NOT to be sensible and live life in a healthy manner because others will pay for it!!   I mean...why be accountable?  our LYING failure of a president certainly isn't accountable.

"What's in it for you".  Wow.  Very telling.  It's clear that this author assumed --wrongly--that people who are against this are selfish.  We're against it because we're more concerned for what's right for our country's Constitution and the well being of the freedoms of our country's people than we are about "what's in it for me?"  We're are able to be against it because we are able to put others, including future generations, before what's in our own personal interests.


Nice try, but you can't just buy people off with a what's-in-it-for-me pitch.  We're not in kindergarten and we can see what you're doing.  Stop it.

if you're nancy pelosi's husband, all your companies have a waiver/odd since she never read the legislation? if you are hussein obama, you get the best HC in the world. if you are a taxPAYER you are paying for another bloated incompetent gubment entitlement. if you are a welfare rat, baby birdie, ACORN, or a textbook loser who doesn't pay your medical bills you are GOLDEN!

It will cost me more money for less coverage.

Market it all you want, but Obama has done nothing for America and a complex insurance scam isn't going to replace anything. I'm confident this will roll-out like a flaming hot rod in a fireworks factory.

And don't forget the best part muslims are exempt from penalties for opting out or not having any insurance that's convenient must be nice to have that much hate for Americans and so many privileges in our country. Now that should piss you off.

What's in it for you ?    * P A I N * !

yep, hussein obama said "keep your own insurance if you like". well? who's going to pay for the welfare rats then? i thought taxPAYERS premiums would be reduced by $2500? then again, this from the "community organizer" who said he would reduce the deficit by a half his first term.

I just wish that Mr. Reid and Palosi had the same health insurance they are smiling now, but wait until the eggs start flying.

I can tell you Obama Care is going to cost people more. hospitals and doctors are already changing and the cost is more. If you can afford to pay your self then I would. We get nearly a 50% discount for paying ourselves over insurance. So if insurance are paying nearly another 50% on top of what one would pay by not having insurance how does anyone think insurance premiums will be cheaper?

I have to leave my wife's insurance and go on my own. And the reason we were on my wife's is I didn't want to change primary care physicians. My Doctor is not a approved provider on my half way across  the state health plan. Therefor because I must change in October and the President never considered a predicament such as mine, He effin lied and he shoulda shut his pie hole about his grand scheme that was half fast baked and served on a toilet bowl lid. No wonder most people feel that government is most likely to get it all wrong when they touch it.

So it costs more to insure women, and they should pay less...why?

If the benefits that "Obamacare" provide are so great then tell me why Obama and his family are not taking part in it?  Same with Pelosi and all the rest of them.  What about all the "exemptions"? 1400 and counting in Pelosi's district alone. How do I apply for my personal "exemption"?  Ooopsie sorry, Mr. Taxpayer you can't get an exemption because without the ability to fleece you the whole thing can't be funded. Typical scenario, the taxpayer who is "unconnected" or who doesn't fit into the correct voting block gets screwed!!! 

The article mentions what is in it for me.  None of the above helps me out as I already have health insurance which costs me dearly. Now in addition to paying that I will be taxed upon the benefits that I am already have to purchase so that "others" can get free or reduced health care insurance.  There are millions of us out there in this situation. If this isn't income re-distribution I don know what is? Socialism through and through. It was never really about health care it was all about control, redistributing wealth,  Classic Obama!!

if you think health care is expensive now... wait until it's free!!!  prepare for the economy to make another "correction". WORST PRESIDENT EVER
