    Obama is doing this. He is saying one thing, but doing another......it's all one big lie. CWA-AFLCIO at this point has got to know they've been lied to and hopefully they will get this straightened out. ALL corporations will be hit next year....they have no choice, it was passed on Oct 17 and has absolutely NO intent on giving anybody a choice. The union MUST stand up on this one if they're ever going to stand up on anything. We are all about to get dumped onto a #$%$ plan with our premiums tripled.
    THIS is what unions were founded on and if they can't get on board on this and do something about this.......there will never be a use for any union again. This is just awful and I see Obama as an enemy in every sense of the word. We will either do without insurance and pay the fine or our union will "deliver a strong message" to this tyrannical dictator in the White House.I can march and protest, all I need is to get the call and I have together at least 50 Telephone Pioneers who have said they are ready as well, we're just waiting to get the call. Call us CWA--we're not new to picketing and this is definitey worth our time--we will be glad to help. At this point in our lives, we have less and less to live for and losing healthcare that is affordable and good insurance is the last straw. Old people are the best protestors because we have so little to lose. We will be good for the union.I'm putting this out here because they're not calling us and we're available for this cause.
    Sentiment: You'd be a fool not to hold right now because the federal reserve is easing 85 Billion dollars per MONTH into the stock market. The market should be at 40,000 instead of 15,000.Janet Yellen said if qe (quantative easing) were stopped right now, this country would fall apart (my interpretation of what she said). FYI-the US dollar is on the verge of collapse, in case you're not paying attention to Saudi Arabia, China,and Russia.The feds can't print money when the dollar is ousted.

    Sentiment: Hold

    Those of us who retired SBC/ATT should be fine as we still have our insurance from ATT. If you're on Medicare, your ATT is your secondary. We all should be fine. The others speaking here...I assume are not former or current employees of SBC/ATT. We already have good insurance thanks to our union, whether you're management or union, the union sets the standard. Most all of us are investors or at least own stock from our working days......I assume everyone else is not or never have been employed by SBC/ATT and are investors or curious. I am thankful for great insurance and I believe we have CWA to thank for standing up for retirees' benefits. I am sorry for everyone who feels they have no choice but Obamacare. I've read the law and I know what's in it and that it's something I am thankful I will not be forced to take. Retirees, if for some reason you dropped your insurance and thought your premium was too high, call benefits.....you might be surprised what they'd say to you, or not. Just call.Do not get yourself stuck with Obamacare insurance when you can do better.
    As for the stock market, during the last shut down, the market went up as it is doing now. I would not have more or less concern because of the shut down. The average person will never know it's shut down.

    Sentiment: Hold

    You don't have to wear that shoe for the rest of your life. We're talking about a lot more than a shoe here. You get what you pay for and if you pay very little, you'll get very little. It's too bad no one is actually talking about what's in the law and what is expected and what is set in stone. There is a reason for much dissent.........read the darn bill and see what you're signing on to......you will get something, but likely nothing what you're expecting. There is a good reason Congress WILL NOT sign onto Obamacare..........they don't want it......it's a last resort....not like a shoe, more like an aspirin.
    Doctors who are specialists will be paid as primary care doctors, according to the law.....so there goes your specialists over time, no specialization.So much more, do read the law.......it's truly unbelievable!

    pj

    Harry wants his Cadillac insurance plan and refuses to sign up for Obamacare, as all democrats know what it actually is about. BEWARE: Once you OPT in, you're in for life and you CANNOT get out. OK. You say, well, I just won't pay! OH YES you will because the IRS has the authority to go into your accounts and all assets and take them for Obamacare--WITHOUT A WARRANT-AND YOU CANNOT SUE THEM. That is all in the law in plain English. If it goes up from 250.00 to 500.00 next year, tough, you can't get out of it. There's much more in the law........it would behove anything signing up to read the bill...this law will not go to distance to take care of you, it is limited.......the death panels, committees kick in. If the IRS deem it will take too much money to save you, they will give you counseling to help you accept your situation and give you a pain pill and help you die. They will even help you fill out your will. --Do you see why Harry doesn't want to sign on to this?

    Sentiment: Hold
