I don't have to worry about the ACA. I have what they call "federal VIP benefits." Perks for working for the government.
So, basically, I don't care if it works or not. At least not unless it affects me in some way. Horribly selfish, but I've grown tired of this argument.

Oh be careful, on this board, that's socialism, and all socialism in any form is bad.
i wonder why you never hear neocons bitch about the military. that's ALL socialist. Think about it, food, living space, gear, transportation, healthcare. All paid by taxpayers. Sounds like socialism.
If YOU like YOUR Obamacare ... YOU can keep it.
But don't try to push it on the rest of us. We know better.
I get 100% government run healthcare at the VA, and I love it. I prepaid all my premiums (two hitches) and no one's out to fleece me every time I have to get something looked at. You kids should be so lucky, but I respect your desire to get f*cked over by multi-billion dollar corporations. I just wish that you could get your wish and be dumped out from the ACA program. I'd love to watch you fight your insurance HMO for tests and treatment, and spend months trying to convince them that your cancer isn't a preexisting condition. Hell, I'd pay to watch that.

Just ask The American People if ObamaCare is working...They'll tell you the Truth.
Well, liberal vs. Conservative aside... Our family of 5 had a family doctor we trusted for more than 20 years. She announced her retirement 4 years ago citing the coming Federal red tape. I don't blame her given the changes and we have yet to find a comparable replacement GP.
I've been a CWA 3204 union member for 14 years. The best contract they could negotiate costs almost 3 times as our previous contact. Higher premium, higher deductible and higher Co pay. I suspect we'll all be dumped onto a public exchange next time.
It isn't working for me or a lot of other folks. It will be a major consideration in my votes this fall.
