Crazy Lee:
You do understand, don't you, that the Reagan Signed EMTAL of `86 (emergency room must treat regardless of ability to pay) has been adding ~$1000, for a family of 4, through increased private insurance premiums (somebody had to eat the cost of the most poorly implemented `socialized' medicine program EVER -

Oh oh, you must have missed the recent comedy wherein a prominent Republican outright said things along the lines of,  "We don't have a setting across this country where if you don't have insurance, we just say to you, 'Tough luck, you're going to die when you have your heart attack,"  No, you go to the hospital, you get treated, you get care, and it's paid for, either by charity, the government or by the hospital."

Thus meaning that the poor can either be charity cases, have their tabs picked up by the government (but ONLY for emergency rescue, no mention of preventative care or care for injuries that are crippling but not immediately life-threatening, so it's not socialism then, you see), or make private companies eat the cost whether they want to or not.

Which one?  Uh...Mitt Romney.  http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/10/11/1143096/-Romney-reiterates-c l aim-that-ER-is-health-care

Of  course they did.  The Affordable Care Act is its official name.  "Obamacare" is what Republicans call it so they can oppose it with a straight face.  Remember, if there's one thing that politicians are good at, it's naming their bills something that sounds good on the surface.

A republican governor cuts part-time state employees hours and blames it on Obamacare.  Have you considered the possibilities that he either didn't have to do that and just wanted something to bash Barack with, or that he's just trying to privatize some of their functions?

Much like Fail's insurance company, saying Obamacare made you do something don't necessarily make it so.

Yeah it was soo much better when people with pre-existing illness couldn't buy insurance at any price.

You friends who work part-time will now qualify for Medicaid unless their State's Governor is one of the few jack-holes who prefer to side with the Tea-Party than the American public (also assuming they are not very wealthy part-timers).

The best part about "Obama Care" is that is it moving us closer to single payer.  Lots of hurdles to overcome, but it's a start.

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.

Fail in Human Form: cameroncrazy1984: Fail in Human Form: Not a clue.  The HMO doesn't send me a letter explaining every detail of their business amazingly.

Well then how do you know they increased their rates because of the new law?

I got a letter saying so and a letter explaining the percent paid on premiums requirement.  Not a detailed list of why.


You're serious? Really? You got a letter explaining why your premiums went up from the HMO, and you believed them?

OK then.

Here's one plausible explanation. The accountants with your HMO did some calculations based on the profit limit in the affordable health care act, played with some costs, and then figured out the maximum you could be charged.

They then charge it.

Of course, rather than writing into their letter that they're all greedy SOBs, they'll just write and say - because ObummerCare.

Depending on where you live in Ohio, that will certainly deflect the blame and rile up the base for those pesky midterm elections.

And if you look at it from their slanted point of view, yes the affordable health care act caused your premiums to be raised. They saw a way to make more money in a constrained market (it's them or BC/BS), stay within the guidelines, and blame it on someone else.

Perfect.

Boo hoo.  If you have to pay more in premiums or co-pays so that two other Americans can have health insurance and not die of disease because they can't pay, I'm okay with that.  If a little discomfort for you saves someone else's life, I'm okay with that. You were not the target population for Obamacare.  It's not just about you.  Biatching about what you have to give up so that others can have something they need is Republicanism 101.

The horrors of the healthcare system prior to Obamacare were very, very real, even if they didn't effect you.  Having your insurance cancel you when you get sick.  Not being able to even get insurance because you had asthma as a child (pre-existing).  Services being denied and people literally left to die.   You may have had it great with your health insurance before Obamacare, but other people are dead because of it.  Again, it's not just about you.

My premiums didn't go up.  Doesn't sound like anyone else's did here either.

What was wrong?  He said "few" substantiated cases, not "none".  Besides, in Virginia, full-time is considered 32 or more hours, so a cut to 29 hours is at most a 2-hour per week cut. Not really the "severe reduction" to which he was responding.

A "House Republican" is like the "house wine" - sure, it's wine, but it's cheap, easily had, and leaves a bad aftertaste.

Soup4Bonnie: spend the thread discussing how awful Obamacare is with an obvious idiot rather than look at the steaming pile of shiat Ryan is again trying to warm up and serve to seniors.


Since they've already tried like 50 brazillion times to repeal it and lost seats in the ensuing election, I don't see why looking at Ryan's poop would be more illuminating that sharing stories about how our actual situations have gotten better. Mine has as well.

Yup, just like Sisyphus was doing work of great benefit.

cameroncrazy1984: The American public is so hungry to repeal Obamacare that the re-elected the guy who signed it.


that's basically what Chris Wallace said to Ryan. I haven't seen Wallace stop a guest so often to dispute them in some time.* Wallace was all over Ryan about the medicare vouchers. politely but firmly.

*not that i watch a lot of fox news sunday.

Fail in Human Form: A Dark Evil Omen: Fail in Human Form: 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.

Your name is accurate.

Everything I just said is from first hand experience.  Please tell me where I'm wrong.


Yeah none of those things have happened to you or anyone you know. You are a lying sack of shiat, begone from this place and bother decent folks no more.

I don't know, in reading his posts I don't think he is a liar, it sounds like someone he listens to is a derper and he isn't educated enough to know why that person is wrong/lying.

Instead of the guy who first implemented it at the state level.

jst3p: No way that Governor Bob Mcdonnell, the chairman of the Republican Governors Association, could be using this as a political stunt, right?


Certainly not the governor who declared Confederate History month! No, surely he wouldn't do anything like that.

/God I cannot wait for him to be out of office.

Intentionally including things they know will tank their bill... how Republican of them.
