to enroll in Obamacare

CNN, by Jen Christensen

Original Article

Posted By:BuckeyeRon, 10/12/2013 8:02:25 PM

Jeff Jones started shopping for health insurance as soon as the Obamacare insurance marketplaces opened on October 1. The Kentucky resident is like a lot LGBT citizens who have not had access to affordable health insurance in the past. (Snip) As a whole the LGBT community has less experience with insurance than the general population. A survey done by the Center for American Progress found that about a third of respondents were uninsured. It´s estimated some 16.3% of the general population is uninsured. In honor of National Coming Out Day on Friday, Out2Enroll´s "Be Out. Be Healthy. Get Covered" campaign

So the truth comes out. The real name for the ACA is the AQCA. I resent paying for health care for any queer, male or female. And the high incidence of AIDS among them is just the type of thing that is going to drive the prices for the rest of us through the roof.

FTA: Before the Affordable Care Act, people with pre-existing conditions often couldn´t get coverage.

They could get insurance, they´d just have to pay higher premiums. Thanks to obama, all of us will be paying for the unhealthy lifestyle choices of others.

Gay marriage started as a movement so gays could get their partners on their health insurance to pay for their AIDS treatments. Just another way to stick it to the straight community.

If every gay in the country signs up we´ll finally learn how many there really are, which is likely well under 5% of the population.

I will take #10s point further.

All we hear about is that the "gay community" is very much employed, above-average in pay, typically highly-skilled workforce. And you better not anger them because they have incredible buying power!

But many of them don´t have any health insurance.

How does that work.

I always ask this question. I have worked full time since 16, and had all my own insurance since 18.

Why is that fine for me but not for everyone else? I got no special breaks. Oh, wait a minute, I worked by butt off....so that´s not FAIR is it?

Is there a line on the form for "sexual orientation"?

I understand that along with birthday, one´s SS#, name, address are required, necessarily.

ALL of this information and ALL of their health information will be accessible on-line... there´s no way that the security issues will be corrected any time soon.

Frankly, most people would not want to read about the nature of the kind and parts of the body afflicted with STDs.

Another consequence of HIV/AIDS is medications which destroy the liver, ultimately requiring transplant.

Will there be accurate numbers of sign-ups reported? We know the regime has lied and has been caught in the lies about the big roll out. Exposed!

# 6 Is correct. You and I are now paying for their HIV/AIDS treatment and have been for some time now as municipalities go PC and add gay partners on employee coverage.

All Zippy had to do was mandate guaranteed issue for all health insurance and let the insurance companies apply it. Instead, yet another industry has been annihilated under his watch.

Why aren´t straight unmarried couples living together suing for discrimination ?

BTW-SNL just did a skit on Zippycare that wasn´t kind.

The federal law on health insurance and privacy eliminated preexisting conditions
on employer provided health plans.
So there is some smoke being blown by barack, who puffed up the numbers to justify this trainwreck.

I know a little something about building websites since I have built about 400 websites of all stripes.

If the asshat gave $600 million to a Canadian company to build this website, then $599,550,000.00 of it came back here in brown envelopes as payoffs to asshat´s buddies.

Chances are if they already have AIDS,they´re on disability and medicaid.Years aho there was an article called "The bug Chaser" that said gays shop for strange men and the possibily of catching a serious disease was part of the thrill. The article was yanked within a couple days.

They probably have a big part in the spike of disability claims.

Insurance products are no longer being offered. Insurance deals with risk but risk considerations have been politically removed from much of the ObamaCare offerings and the risk is spread for all of us to pay.
E.G. An insurance product would charge more for gays because of their increased risk for HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, etc. Instead we are all paying for that risk and many other similarly ´´shared´´ risks under ObamaCare, i.e. This is not insurance.

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I´ve gotta tell, another little thing about Nelson Mandela. Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of

The U.S. federal health insurance website HealthCare.gov, which has had technology problems since its October 1 launch, is now experiencing errors in transmitting applications about 10 percent of the time, a government spokeswoman said on Friday. The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites. "We believe nine of 10 transactions are being successfully transmitted," the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, spokeswoman Julie Bataille said at a news briefing.

He said the Justice Department should prosecute Clapper for giving false testimony during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in March. During that hearing, Sen.

To fully appreciate what former South African president Nelson Mandela was able to accomplish, it is necessary to hearken back to the South Africa he found when he emerged from prison in 1990, and what the country was like in those critical four years between his release and his election to the presidency in 1994. Put simply, South Africa was a violent, dangerous and heavily-armed place teetering precariously on the edge of an all-out race war. And in the early 1990s, it was entirely unclear which way the country would go. On one side, embittered white rejectionists were refusing to

Nelson Mandela was the most famous black man in history. He transcended race barriers to become an exemplar of human generosity of spirit. His towering personality made possible the peaceful transfer of power in South Africa from white minority to black majority rule. If he was less effective as president of his country than he had been as the symbol of resistance to apartheid, he demonstrated statesmanship unmatched in Africa. He inspired love as much as respect, and became regarded by hundreds of millions of people as a secular saint. More was asked of him, and sometimes claimed for him,

Former South African President Nelson Mandela has died at age 95 of complications from a recurring lung infection. The anti-apartheid leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate was a beloved figure around the world, a symbol of reconciliation from a country with a brutal history of racism. Mandela was released from prison in 1990 after nearly 30 years for plotting to overthrow South Africa´s apartheid government. In 1994, in a historic election, he became the nation´s first black leader. Mandela stepped down in 1999 after a single term and retired from political and public life.

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

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics.
