Many Americans unaware of
health-care law changes

Washington Post, by Sarah Kliff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/21/2012 9:14:51 AM

After surviving a Supreme Court decision and a presidential election, the Obama administration’s health-care law faces another challenge: a public largely unaware of major changes that will roll out in the coming months. States are rushing to decide whether to build their own health exchanges and the administration is readying final regulations, but a growing body of research suggests that most low-income Americans who will become eligible for subsidized insurance have no idea what is coming.Part of the problem, experts say, is that people who will be affected do not realize the urgency, because the subsidies will not

"Low enrollment will drive up premiums". Translation: When Obamacare ruins the healthcare industry, we can blame a stupid, uninformed public for its failure."

Where were the Super PACS and Romney ads during the campaign (and earlier as the Idiot Chief InJustice Roberts was coming up with his novel it´s a tax ´cause I think that´s what it shoulda been even tho the Congress didn´t wanna call it a tax) ...

with ads mentioning EACH and EVERY one of these new Obama taxes, coming to you in January 2013.

´Cause once the stupid sheep start realizing (1) folks in the healthcare industry are laying off folks in hospitals, medical practices and device manufacturers due to reduced reimbursements and higher taxes -- all good paying jobs, by the way and (2) you´re gonna pay those taxes and extra costs in insurance premiums, there might be a complaint or two ... "we didn´t know about that..."

Part of the real problem facing America

"He said he lost welfare benefits in his early 20s, after he gained a full-time job, and the drug and alcohol treatment those benefits covered."

Most people get a job in their early twenties. The vast majority of them never "lost" welfare because of it. Most would find the tone of this statement depressing. Getting a job was apparently a bad thing here.

The public at large will certainly learn about Obamacare when they begin filling out their 1040 tax return for Year 2014.

We had a heated arguement recently over obamacare with my husband´s liberal relatives. The younger ones honestly believe that they will be able to simply sign-up for "obamacare", which is free health insurance according to these Obama voters. They refuse to believe otherwise, said we were just parroting Fox News when we tried to explain that one must BUY an insurance plan.

It is simple math. If you are fortunate enough to have private insurance by the time the ACA is fully implemented, it will cost you 3-6 times as much for far less coverage. You will be paying for everyone who does not pay.

#9, you are both right. You will both "buy" health insurance, however, anyone who qualifies will be given generous subsidies to use to "buy" their insurance. You both might end up with roughly the same plan/same coverage, but one of you might pay $500 per month, while the other pays $50 or nothing at all.

BTW, the true irony is that when it is all said and done, there will still be between 15-20 MILLION UNINSURED for the exact same reasons they are uninsured today.

My best advice to anyone and everyone:

If you smoke or use smokeless tobacco-quit, there will be surcharges and reduced benefits.

If you don´t exercise-start.

If you are overweight--lost the weight, there will be surcharges and reduced benefits.

Oh, and be very nice to that super surly clerk at the DMV, he or she may be he person at HHS deciding your fate.

An elderly acquaintence of mine who changed her Plan D prescription insurance and got a better deal on it, (because she is low income) said, "Boy, (I guess it´s a good thing Obama got elected"). Seriously thinking he helped her. I just shook my head.

Perhaps the punishment for killing 54 million unborn babies is to have Obama as President.

Beginning Jan. 1 I will be without health insurance in over 40 years. My premiums more than doubled and I simply cannot afford it on my salary anymore. As a support staff employee at a local school I am considered a second class employee and not deemed worthy of health insurance (but the teachers are). Instead of making the premium payments equitable the school decided to put it all on the backs of support staff. My premium would have been $800 a month while a teacher who had the exact same policy pays only 8 cents a month. The thought of obamacare should scare everyone but obviously America is now ruled by fools and the idiots who vote them into office.

Man held on $1 million bail

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S. May St., checking to see if his recycling bin was full when Jones approached the man and fired at him. The victim began running away and fell to the ground, said Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Naheda

Obamas attend Easter services at
Nineteenth Street Baptist Church

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

Clearwater doctor unveils secrets of Shroud

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men. It’s the Proustian madeleine of cars, stirring old dreams and new. Guys sometimes follow in the American beauty’s

   

 



 
California Unemployment Holds
Steady at Dismal 8.1%
Breitbart California, by William Bigelow    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/20/2014 5:14:55 AM     Post Reply
California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees. The field of finance

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
