o5iiawah: Just raise the top income tax rate, levy a tax on so-called 'Cadillac' health plans, levy a tax on medical devices, Raid the VA and tri-care budget, take money out of medicare and put all that into the offset of consumer costs. In other words,  Raise taxes and use it to subsidize costs.  Ooh! but look at all the money I save!

firefly212: The reality for these towns is that taxes should be slightly higher, high enough that civil servants and public employees can feed their families, pay their mortgage AND go to the doctors office when they are sick. These aren't wacky demands from some lazy welfare queens

So an able bodied man (A) owes a percentage of his wage to another able bodied man (B) how?  Please explain the origin of that debt.  What then does B owe to A upon A's request?  B willingly chose to purchase a home and start a family. Why is it fair to A that he has to labor not only for his own family but for B?


Oh, it's the guy who thinks civil servants and public employees don't pay taxes themselves and spend their money in an alternate dimension.

Mike Chewbacca: Well, the GOP IS the party of Lincoln.

Considering that the Cheetos-grubbing, racist, misogynyst rebs were not part of the Party of Lincoln when he was president, and only bolted from the Democratic party when they (the party, not the orange finger brigade) embraced equality for Blacks, you must be right.

Oh wait, we were talking about the southern strategy. Silly me.

What were you derping about again?

I got completely screwed by Obamacare.

My employer cut my hours down to part-time just a couple weeks before the insurance companies deadline to lock-in their new rates for next year. My bosses where so scared of rate increases that they cut everyone's hours down so they wouldn't have to cover insurance. I live in Washington state, and the insurance companies have already posted their new rates under the ACA.

Every major insurance company promised 50-70% rate increases..... but instead, every single one of them dropped their rates 10-15%.

/Unfortunately I still make half as much money now, and can't afford my bills :(
//And my bosses are not about to admit they screwed up and caused a bunch of people all the problems they caused just because they're crazy republicans.

JohnnyRebel88: Really?  My dad is laying in a care facility because of a car accident and the medicine that he was receiving was denied by medicare/medicad and was available to him before.  I wonder how they are cutting costs?  I didn't read TFA, however Obama should be cockpinched.  I say "pinched' because it's probably the size of a clit.


Oh you're adorable.  Bless your heart.

great_tigers: Tuna fingers,

My computer is messed up so I can't reply directly to your post. Three years ago I was with the same company, a dmepos. We are having reimbursements decline and claims denied so incredibly much. We went from one of the best companies to work for with many fringe benefits to one that has taken away every benefit but salary and insurance. Our insurance has gone through the roof, we are on pace to have half of our work force this December from one year ago. Please, tell me how I am full of shiat when I watch my wife struggle in pain every day with pain and knowing we could be foreclosed if we do not have a payment plan set up with the surgical site. The orthopedic surgeon that would do her surgery is a client of mine, he knows the struggle we have but is mandated by the hospital to charge the full amount.

Please, let me know how full of


Have you filed a claim for undue costs through the ACA website?  Don't buy into the surgeon's claims that it so bad bad bad.  They may have their own agenda and be full of shiat.  They are not the end-all as far as discourse.

js34603: So what specifically did the ACA implement that resulted in these lower costs?

It hasn't even been fully put into effect yet. So what part of what has been implemented led to lower costs?


Correlation, that's what.

Speaking of which, do your part and buy more mexican lemons, we can eliminate gun violence and somali pirates in one go.

Iron Felix: Try going to work for a great company with a great insurance plan.  Then you get laid off unexpectedly and cobra costs your family $1900/month.  Healthcare in the US is an absolute joke.


This I agree with.
The ACA isn't a health care reform, it was an insurance reform.
Baby steps.
The thing sucks, but it is a move in the right direction.
