My issue with it from day 1; anyone that ever had any major deals with the fed should have no these guys and gals can't do anything with an ounce of horse sense.

It's not just obama's bill, the Democrats will be catching blame for this for probably 2 more election cycles... Doesn't matter if it's justified they let it be the center of the discussion for to long... And some of the gop's concern's coupled with some of obama's mistakes ( like your plan you can keep your plan) are going to make this an albatross around the necks of democrats.

Also remember, tptb are not going to suffer... John q public is screwed because of lack of leadership by democrats, and putting politics before the people by republicans.

Obama knew the ACA had no cost control measures but he still made his public pronouncement about how much it would save and that jazz. period!!!

I read somewhere they knew the ACA would not have passed had the truth regarding cost be known. They figured they could get it in place and then work on the cost control measures. Problem is the insurance companies are loving the profits so as usuall, we the people are getting screwed while the crony capitalist and our govt get all they wanted and more.

Ted Cruz doesn't look like such a right wing nut job know!

My fellow Americans, welcome to socialized medicine.

Fox News article



I agree like other posters that this is not socialism.
It is Corporate Fascism

A couple of points to prove the way:

The Insurance Industry wrote Obama Care
The Insurance and Big Pharma Industry sit at the top of the Lobbying and Contributions totem pole.
Executive and Shareholder Pay is the number one concern not citizen healthcare.
No Cost Controls
It is another stealth bailout for Corporations at everyone else expense.
But lets blame the poor and middle class that have no political, monetary or lobbying power and are the ones that are being forced to pay for it. The Mega Corporations will not be paying for it since they are in bed with the government. They will force small business and the little citizens to pay for it.

If you supported Citizens United and Money backed Lobbying is Freedom of Speech, give yourself a pat on the back for bringing Obama Care to fruition.

Ya cause I bet everyone would of been all over 'cost control'.

Cause it is up to the president how much things are allowed to cost right?
Or is that to big of government.

The same people that say the gov has no business in deciding how much things cost can not then turn around and complain about a lack of cost control in something

ACA, Obamacare, or whatever you want to call it isn't socialized healthcare.

It's fascist, without question, the state forcing the individual to purchase ANYTHING is fascist, the state paying for said purchase would be socialist. This is corporatist, and I can't wait for it to fail, because when it fails, single payer wont be far behind.


Exactly!

This is the Insurance and Pharma using government to hold a gun to my head to hand over my money to private for profit institutions.

Government does not own and control and write Obamacare. The Insurance and Healthcare Industry wrote it, own it, and profit from it and use the Big Government Stick to fork over my money.

But they sure as hell have a the right to say, "You lied"?

Find it odd that your defending this nonsense that was sold as a "better-cheaper health care plan"!

You seem to be working your ass off defending "crony capitalism" aren't ya?

I don't really want to hear it.

Every single person that signed up for the scam is responsible.

Every single person that was gullible enough to believe in the government is responsible.

I think it is down right hilarious.

My son broke his arm in gym class two years ago. The schools insurance said my insurance had to pay for it. My insurance fought it for two damn years. We were threatned with credit and courts. They finally paid.

Two damn years of harrasment.

I am a union worker, we don't have Obamacare, yet.

The point being,

It doesn't friggin matter what we think people.

We are the peons that get pissed on.

No just calling people out for complaining about something that if it existed, they would have complained about.

ACA sucks and should have never been implemented.

Barry is a liar, just like the next guy, and the next guy, and I would be willing to bet the guy after him.


The most that I have said in this thread is that it is not socialist health care, not sure that is defending it

Don't worry comrades, all is going as planned since Carl Marx started this agenda.

Our operatives in the White House are following the play book to the letter.

Well, your union insurance plan probably meets or exceeds the minimum standards of the ACA. My insurance that expires in 5.5 hours was union set and voted on. Nothing changed with the ACA. Not even premiums.

resident informed that Obamacare may not be affordable:


Do you suppose they'll continue calling it the "Affordable Care Act" now rather than the derisive "Obamacare"?"

Because I remember when they (liberals) blamed republicans for trying to mockingly call it Obamacare.

Ted Cruz always looks like a right wing nut job every time he opens his trap. One never needed Ted Cruz or his ilk to point out what an epic fail Obama-care was from the start. Having lived in countries with socialized medicine, I can honestly say Obama-care doesn't even live in the same ball park. Obama-care is nothing more than a federally mandated extortion racket by the medical industrial complex. It did not aim to make healthcare universal, but force people to buy something they couldn't afford in the first place.

Obamacare did nothing to address the real problems with healthcare in this country: ridiculously sky high costs beyond the reach of most people, the influence of big pharma and the over-medication of America, and the problem with the declining health in this country. You didn't need an idiot Like Ted Cruz to point this out.

The Only reason it made it past congress is because congress if full of out of touch morons getting paid by lobbyists to pass it.

Now this is probably crazy of me to say but:
Shouldn't Obama's health care advisor Jonathan Gruber have done all this research before obamacare was put in place?



Hay there were many right here at ATS talking about the unaffordability.

Unlikely, since the Templars and Venetians were playing the banking scam hundreds of years before Marks was an itch in his daddy's pants.

In fact, their banking prowess is much of what got the Templars wiped out.

Marx must have read about them.

Did the Templars have paper money they could counterfeit?

No, but the Chinese did hundreds of years before them:

Banknote

Modern banking with banknotes developed a couple hundred years before Marx was born. Marx invented nothing. He, like every other political hack, studied how banking practices already in place could further his agenda. A practice that predated him, and continues beyond him.

Every single boogeyman in the conspiracy world, whether it be Marxism, the Illuminati, the Jews, The Reptiles, the Masons, the Aliens, the Smurfs, whatever evil entity you want, all are commonly accused of starting banking, or running banking. However, the truth is,modern finance as we know it is a chimera that has evolved into what it is.
