    ALL THIS #$%$ ABOUT "YOU CAN KEEP YOUR INSURANCE" IS A RED HERRING......

     

    Yes, did Obama misinform - yes he did.

    I will give him the benefit of the doubt like I did Bush 43 when he said we invaded Irag because of WMD. I don't think either Obama or Bush lied since they really believed what they said.

    But here's the big picture on Obamacare - 95% of folks with medical insurance WILL KEEP THEIR policies. All those with company or government policies will likely keep their coverage. I am one of them and there are no changes.

    But for the 5% of Americans who do buy their own individual coverage, 1/2 of these folks (which is millions) will have their policies cancelled.

    BUT FOR 15% OF AMERICANS WITHOUT HEALTH INSURANCE, OBAMACARE WILL BE A TREMENDOUS BOON.

    So intelligent folks out there will realize, that all this Republican wailing and gnashing of teeth for the few million who now have to buy better insurance and will likely get a subsidy, it is as William Shakespeare said "MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING".

      All he did was repeat what was on the teleprompter

      Wrong wrong wrong. Just wait until the employee mandate comes out and watch. Oh, our rates came out today. All deductibles have tripled.

      Good job O !

      • Your deductibles going up likely has nothing to do with Obamacare. Did you ask your provider why they did this? There has been 8% or more medical cost inflation that is killing all of us and the hope is that Obamacare will start to control this better, much like Medicare already does for folks over 65 yrs of age.

        What I said is you would not lose your policy if you had a company plan.....neither Obama or me said your insurance company would not make some changes year over year.

        All you crybabies over Obamacare need to face a reality - what we had was not working. That had been a bulding problem for all Americans for years. And another reality you need to face - no one before Obama was doing anything to fix it. The GOP can whine all they want now, but they DID NOTHING to fix the problem for Americans before Obamacare.

        Facts are stubborn things, as Ronald Reagan once said.

      • The same cancellation notices that are coming out for private plans now will be repeated for the company mandate that kicks in in 2015. Hey that is right before the election. LOL!
