I logged into the Obamacare website today and it showed me a ring and it said I was going to die in 7 days.

Thanks, Obama :(

Just call your doctor and ask them if they take ObamaCare.  Chances are they don't.

I can't tell if you are completely stupid, or utterly brilliant.

Brilliant of course, and of course you are utterly stupid.

Breaking character like that is going to cost him a few points from the judges. Let's see if he regains his composure.


Not too certain it's breaking character, as he is insulting me with a nice turnabout of my own phrasing. So if there's a penalty, I'd discount it a bit. Maybe one point.

Obamacare isn't an insurance plan. That's important to remember. Or in your case, to ignore.

Duhh!!!!   I am talking about any plan that is bought through the health care exchanges.  There is a big problem with any of these "plans" as far as what doctors will take those plans.  Same things goes with hospitals.  But then again you probably chose to ignore that.  My doctor won't take any plan from Aetna, but will take Cigna.  He also won't take any plan associated with ObamaCare as well.  How good is the insurance if few doctors or hospitals will accept it?  Wake up and smell the failure/

Playing along...

Why won't he take anything but Cigna? Did he sign an exclusivity agreement with them, or does he work solely with Cigna?


I didn't say that now did I.  My doctor takes lots of different insurances but does not accept Aetna because of the reimbursement rates.  Same thing goes for the ObamaCare related policies.

Your post wasn't in support of Obamacare nor was his retort an attack on same. He allowed himself to be distracted and I have a strong feeling that it will be reflected in the final scores.

Bob Dole: In 1996, while running for the Presidency, Dole openly bragged that he was one of 12 House members who voted against creating Medicare in 1965. "I was there, fighting the fight, voting against Medicare . . . because we knew it wouldn't work in 1965."

Going bankrupt?  I'm pretty sure that if your government is kiting bad checks against 17,000,000,000,000.00 in bad debt, whatever they're cutting checks for is pretty much already bankrupt.

I know I'm responding to a troll....

Doctors take any insurance for whichever network they belong. If you buy a plan on the exchange, from cigna, through their PPO network and your doctor is in that PPO network, then he will take "Obamacare Insurance". He'll never know.

In the next decade, Social Security will be start paying out more money than it has taken in in a big way.  You cannot tweek or make minor adjustments to fix that.  Did you know that when Social Security was originally passed people rarely lived passed the age of 65?  Now people are living well past that but the retirement has not changed.  Major changes will need to be made and it is not going to be pretty.  But by all means kick the can down the road and bury your head in the sand.  But let's get back to ObamaCare and not get distracted.

If you really think ObamaCare is an insurance policy that providers can accept or not, then, on a very fundamental level, you do not understand just what ObamaCare is.


Finding a doctor who works with your particular insurance company can be a pain in the ass sometimes.  Seems like low hanging fruit if they would just mandate that every doctor who takes insurance has to accept any ACA compliant insurance.  At that point, asking if they "take ObamaCare" might be a reasonable question.  (as opposed to a theoretical doctor who only accepts cash)

A 2.66% increase in payroll taxes and slowly raising the retirement age to 70 would completely fix SS.

Social Security is solvent for the next 20 years and can pay out 75% of benefits after that. It keeps 22 million Americans out of poverty, has never in its history missed a payment, consistently runs a surplus and is extremely popular to boot. It is the most successful social welfare program in the history of the country. Period. Major changes are not need. One change is needed. Lift the contribution cap. A one line piece of legislation. There, you can stop with the concern trolling. Next.

The value of our money is based on two things only.  We have the ability to blow the planet to smithereens while oil is traded in our currency and the tacit promise that our great great great grandkids will happily sweat like pigs to replace whatever gerrymandered wealth may have once been behind it.  Frankly, I wouldn't put a dime on that pony.  Evertying just keeps costing more and offering less opportunties to pay for it.  See Weimar republic.  The very notion that health care should generate 2,000% profit margins ANYWHERE on the chain is barbaric and contravenes it's very raison d' être.

Fwd: Fwd: Fwd: Fwd: I just got back from the doctor. The girl at the front desk looked at my insurance card, then asked if I used healthcare.gov to purchase my policy. When I told her, "yes" she hit a button under her desk. Shortly there after a man who identified himself as a "Homeland Security Agent" explained to me that Obamacare is actually a part of an elaborate Nigerian phishing scam and that my insurance was useless.

Forward this to any Real Patriot Americans that may need healthcare before it's too late.

Netrngr: Maybe there is something im not seeing but all I see is a shameless money grab based on a law that failed to put in place protections for the people it was intended to help.


Like a lot of federal laws (Clean Air and Clean Water Acts come to mind), the ACA empowers state governments to take care of shiat. South Carolina (from your profile) is bought and paid for by the insurance industry. Your beef is with SC, not the ACA. Like I said before, you could petition the HHS to look at the increase. They have (through provisions in the ACA) already overrode and cut some state's rate hikes.

Netrngr: Witty_Retort:
/i saved only $2,200 per year, so Obama is a big fat poopyhead liar.

How the hell did you do that? What were you paying a month before? Like I said mine doubled.


My 'payments' went up a few bucks a month, but I went from a 'hope I don't get sick, and if I do, die quick so I don't bankrupt my family' crap plan to a mildly OK one. Subsidies are saving me 2g a year.

Also, look into a Healthcare Savings Account. If you have preexisting conditions and know you'll probably hit the yearly deductible, saving money in the HSA could lower your Gross Pay to something that provides subsidies. A buddy of mine is doing that. His baby girl is bad sick and knows that he'll hit the $7,500 family cap each year. So he structured it so that he'll put 8k away each year (that he knows he'll pay out), and that will lower his gross so that he will get about 14k in subsidies.

If you are saying that is a minor tweek or adjustment, then why haven't they done that already?  Do you think people are going to want to wait five more years to retire?  Do you think people are going to take that 2.66% paycut?

2.  Never try and learn anything from anybody who is dripping with certitude about anything.  They have stopped paying attention and are working with a very narrow scope.

3.  Never try and learn anything from anybody whose ostensibly unimpeachable knowledge is derived from things other people have asserted.  They are working within a template.

I thought that day happened last week when CNN ran an article against Obamacare. At least that's what you said before it was pointed out to you that Mitch McConnell was the author of the article and you fled the thread.

You are farking retarded. You know that, right? You use the "Obamacare" website to sign up for a health insurance plan. If you would like to cancel that policy, you should call the insurer you signed up with. If you knew literally anything about the situation you're talking about, you would know that.

WiredMann: Just wait a few months and we will start hearing horror stories about people who have bought this wonderful insurance and then when they have something besides preventative care, such as a broken arm, they will be horrified when the insurance won't pay for anything until those high deductibles have been reached.  All those people who could not pay for a monthly premium without a subsidy are going to expect the government to bail them out, right?  The hospitals are going to have to write off those losses when those bills aren't paid and so fewer and fewer hospitals will take Obamacare in the following years.  The epic fail continues...

Netrngr: jonnya: I successfully enrolled in a silver Blue Cross plan via the ACA sight last Thursday. The site was fine, but I've yet to receive any type  of confirmation or payment instructions. A littleoff-putting  but I'm figuring they're being bombarded right now. Nonetheless, the Blue Cross has made me a criminal! Don't they want my money?

Blue cross is who we have here and while its fine insurance , don't get me wrong it really kicks ass, our premiums doubled and its on par with that the exchange has so how do you explain a shiat ton of cash rolling in causing costs to double? Really?? Maybe there is something im not seeing but all I see is a shameless money grab based on a law that failed to put in place protections for the people it was intended to help.


I have to admit, as an ACA supporter, that I was shocked to see that my total BCBS policy rate through my employer damn near doubled this year too with no significant enhancements to my "Gold Level" plan that I could see. My employer absorbed all but something like $1.34 a month, if I recall correctly, but it seems damned strange.

I got a ~$11 rebate check last year, from the same insurer, so I can only assume that A) The HR person in charge of negotiation for my 1,200+ employee company needs to be fired (quite possible, from my experience with the department in general), or B) BCBS is hedging against some sort of voodoo by which it's worth paying my employer back most of the excess balance at the end of next year. Maybe someone more familiar with the industry can elucidate.

That said, I've never had any issue with insurance payments for either routine or emergency care.

Show me one.


Since you're clearly too much of a mental midget to understand how Google works, here's your requested one:

You are farking retarded. You know that, right? You use the "Obamacare" website to sign up for a health insurance plan. If you would like to cancel that policy, you should call the insurer you signed up with. If you knew literally anything about the situation you're talking about, you would know that.


You're so cute when you act like you know what you're talking about.

Born_Again_Bavarian: dok9874: thurstonxhowell: dok9874: Ah yes, the premiums that are paid by automatic draft from your bank account. You going to just switch bank accounts? And that's not "unsigning up", that's welching on the contract where you agreed to pay the premiums. I'm talking a legitimate way to cancel the policy.

Did you ever think about calling them up and cancelling the policy? What the fark went wrong in your brain that made you forget that option?

Unlike you, I'm smart enough not to have an Obamacare card.  My momma and daddy always told me not to buy the first rollout of anything (they were talking cars back in the day, but I'm going to go ahead and expand their philosophy).  You all enjoy your Obamacare "Have Zero Expectation of Privacy of Anything in Your Application or Your Use of This *Wonderful* Policy That Won't Let You See Your Regular Doctor or Use the Hospital Closest to You or the Major Medical Centers Across the US Because They Aren't Accepting Obamacare Insurance".
