Again? Hasn't the House already repealed it like 5 times? Let it go man, it's gone.

They tried 33 times or something like that last session.  And the first bill of this Congress was to repeal Obamacare.

"Our budget does promote repealing ObamaCare," said Ryan, who was not clear whether his 2014 budget is based on a full repeal...... "I've very confident this is the way to go,"

"Here's my plan.  We want to repeal Obamacare.  I know we tried like 35 times when we had more Republicans in the HoR, and more Republicans in the Senate, and it failed every time.  This time will be different and is in no way just a waste of time in which I'm trying to distract you from the fact that I got nuthin'.  I'm not sure if this thing I'm proposing gets rid of all of it, but I know it's the right thing to do, even though I'm not sure exactly what it does."

47% of you voted for this dumbshiat to be the VPOTUS.

What a shock, the Republicans pass another poison pill piece of legislation that they know will never get passed just so they can say that they're doing something and the Senate needs to get of their asses. I'm surprised it doesn't defund Planned Parenthood, NPR, and PBS.

You know what, I bought into the promise of "Obama Care".  I was wrong.  All I've seen are premiums go up, my friends who work part time get their hours severely reduced so the companies don't have to offer them care, the co-pay on everything double, and impending fines.  The status quo before wasn't sustainable... but this farking sucks.

Remember folks, $600 billion per year to enable us to blow up sand into more sand and does nothing back home except give us wounded vets to take care of(which the GOP doesn't seem to care about either) and line the pockets of defense contractors is a good use of tax dollars, but $100 billion per year to take care of Americans is the worst socialism to ever socialize.

They've got one more year to try and get rid of it.  2014 is when most of the big stuff swings into action.

Premiums went up slightly, but it was the smallest increase I've seen in years percentage wise (only 1%), plus my benefits expanded to cover vaccinations and improved what they cover for preventative care.

Ah. Wheras I got money back from the insurance company, saw my rates go down, and no longer had to worry about how in gods name I'd ever get health insurance for my fiance, since she had a stroke (due to a generic of Yaz, which she was taking for medical reasons) about 3 years ago at the age of 23.

My premiums went up 500% because of Obamacare and my employer fired me because Obama taxed the rich.  Also, my Papa Johns pizza is way too expensive and I can no longer afford to eat.  Luckily, I don't have to worry about any of this because a death panel has already sentenced me to execution.

My rates stayed the same this year because Obamacare capped the amount of profit that my insurance company was allowed to take from my premium.
The rebate from last year was applied to my account this year.

First time my rates haven't increased in decades.

If history is any guide, it works like this:
Wounded vet comes back and says,
"I sacrificed for this country, send more guys to finish what I couldn't, ooo-rah, Merica!", then the GOP loves him.
Wounded vet comes back and says,
"So, uh, losing my legs here wasn't part of the deal...I got medical insurance for this shiat, right?  And college assistance so I can learn a desk job?", then the GOP could give a fark less.
Wounded vet comes back and says,
"Okay, that sucked and there's no good reason to send more American boys into that suck.  I am now against war, in fact I'm turning Democrat.", then not only does the GOP not care, they'll go out of their way to trivialize it and make up outright slander about it.

I don't know what state you live in, but here in CA, once our state starts its insurance exchange, my family of 4 can get coverage for $124/month at my current income level. This will also be the first time my wife will have had insurance in more than 10 years do to a pre-existing condition.

So yeah, Obamacare is pretty f'ing great from my POV. Would I prefer true single payer? You bet. But this is certainly an improvement.

I love the right wing dipsh*t brigade who had it their way for 20 years on health care, and health care costs have only gone up since the 1990s. Meanwhile insurance company profits are through the roof.

So finally enough said enough and we get a smidgen of reform. No single payer option, no canadian-style.. but at least we got something.

Now you effing asswits who screamed against doing any reform, despite things having sucked for 20 years, are back in force saying zomg o noes everything is going to hell and its all OBAMA's FAULT.

Its like the war debt. None of it mattered to the blithering right wing idiot class until 1-20-2009. Then suddenly zomg debt debt debt libs libs libs.

Like your causing the Iraq war had nothing to do with it, like the Bush Tax Cuts had nothing to do with it.

Seriously, right wingers, you're the reason America's broke and you're the reason health care reform was barely implemented after a year of screaming by your side. Nobody wants your side in power, yet you keep screaming. The few of you thats left.
