It is interesting to note, the latest story on the page for NBC News Investigations is now a story about the U.S. killing terrorists linked to the Westgate Mall Tragedy.

FACT: Nothing in #Obamacare forces people out of their health plans. No change is required unless insurance companies change existing plans.
Valerie Jarrett’s Ridiculously Awful Spin On People Losing Their Health Insurance Because of Obamacare…
A family member of mine is a chef at the Italian restaurant chain BRAVO! Cucina Italiana....He has had health insurance for the entire 4 years he has worked there...his check docked $175 a month for it.
Last week the entire staff was called to a meeting where they were told that Bravos was cancelling all of their insurance plans, and that they would all now be responsible for their own health insurance.
What else is the government going to ram down our throats whether we like it or not?
I heard on the radio tonight that some states are kicking around the idea of forcing citizens to place a device in every registered vehicle that will count every mile that the vehicle moves and then report it back to the state so that we can start paying a tax on every mile driven. Supposedly, this idea was thought up by some genius as a way of compensating for the fact that Americans are purchasing less gas, which equates to less taxes gathered via the gas tax. (I wouldn't be surprised if this little device has a gps locator in it as well either)
u go to emergency care you have no insurance it's illegal not to have insurance then what's gonna happen to you?

I hear you on all that. Add to that, of course, the millions upon millions and yet more millions of formerly Middle Class who got slammed in one form or another since 2007 for losing their homes, careers or both.
Bad credit.. Job issues. Car issues. many many millions facing that together and from events Uncle says were another leader's fault, not those who got squashed by events. Yet... as you note... it does nothing to change the Catch-22 it's so easy to fall into.
Heck.. I seem to be unemployable in anything conventional because at this point, I've been out of work too long, I'm told. Oh yipee... 2 years full time college means nothing, and I've been told that straight out. College isn't work ..can't help me. Arg!
So... guess how insured I am? Oh.. yeah.. in a state where the Medi- catch all programs aren't expanding (as planned by this whole concept) to catch those with no way to pay the ungodly rates of the exchanges. The only good thing a friend recently reminded me of? It's still illegal (for now) to refuse to treat someone at an Emergency room for a legitimate emergency. So at least we won't die from major trauma or some other terminal issue for lack of an insurance card.

I'm not sure what's more shocking... The Fact Obama lied to the American People or the fact NBC actually ran the story discussing it.
Hopefully this will be the final nail in the impeachment coffin for Obama.
