March 1, 2013

Calls for repeal of “Obamacare,” the president’s health care program, seemed to fade away after President Barack Obama was re-elected in November....

RS, I can only hope that when this thing really comes to a head all you supports are hit the hardest.

You might already know about the twenty new or higher taxes in Obamacare. What you might not know is that the non-partisan Government Accountability Office (GAO) says that the IRS has 47 new taxes and regulations to administer in overseeing Obamacare.

notgood, there are no doctors' names in that letter because that would be a legal issue with the Leader-Herald regarding liability. Those letters are opinions; not fact.

I can't believe you need that explained to you.

"Disapointed by Doctor". First, if a doctor does not participate with your insurance, find one that does. This would have saved $150 plus cost of labs. Second, if an employer MANDATES a physical and lab for employment it is a reimburseable expense. Third, in regard to the 2 non-covered visits due to pre-existing condition, it is NOT the physician office's responsibility to know the terms and restrictions of your insurance coverage. Advise, before making an appointment with a doctor find out if they participate with your insurance and review the terms of your coverage, what's covered and what's not. If a test is ordered contact your insurance and ask for a predetermination of benefits. Educate yourself, know the facts to avoid blaming others for what you weren't "aware" of.

Obama has run out of the money that he borrowed from the Chinese for preexisting conditions. I guess it is more expensive than democrats thought. Likely why the insurance companies refused to take them. They went through life and never had insurance then when they get sick they want to stick others with the bill. Just like Obamacare does!

The lies from the left just keep rolling along!! Big Sis must not have gotten the memo that the sky is not falling? The impending sequester did not prevent the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) from acting in late February to seal a $50-million deal to purchase new uniforms for its agents--uniforms that will be partly manufactured in Mexico.

Soon after this new investment in TSA uniforms, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano warned Americans that the lines are already lengthening at airports due to the sequester.

"We are already seeing the effect on the ports of entry, the big airports for example," Napolitano told Politico on Monday. "Some of them had very long lines this weekend."

Its just another way for the tax payers and hard working people to keep paying for the people who refuse to get off their arses and work to take care of all their spawn.

When the Supreme Court upheld the health care law in June, it ruled that states could opt out of the expansion. - Because this portion of Obamacare was found unconstitutional. Oklahoma is the latest state to reject two key elements of President Barack Obama's health care reform plan to extend health coverage to poor and middle-class Americans, Gov. Mary Fallin (R) announced Monday.

Oklahoma won't participate in Obamacare's expansion of Medicaid to the state's poorest residents, or create a health insurance exchange, Fallin said in a press release and a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

The sequester threatens to impact domestic programs and US employment. Meanwhile, from the NY Times, "The aid announced Sunday consists of two parts. One is a $190 million infusion for Egypt’s budget intended to address what Mr. Kerry said was the country’s “extreme needs.” That assistance has already been approved by Congress. Mr. Kerry also pledged $60 million for the creation of a fund to support small businesses, which will provide “direct support to key engines of democratic change in Egypt, including Egypt’s entrepreneurs and its young people.” Do you think that Egypt's proximity to Israel has anything to do with this effort.

Everyone who complains that they are forced to pay for this should be allowed to opt out.and if they do..They would NOT take dime one from the government(OUR TAX DOLLARS) when you get sick or have some sickness that requires testing or expensive operations or drugs...There will never be a good time for this Act..Typical wacky Republican stonewalling..Why a poor area of the state like Fulton County would be filled with Republicans is beyond me..There should be a majority of Independent registered voters..Guess you can't fix stupid.

I'd rather have Obamacare than being lied int combat situations that we have no business getting into, like Vietnam in 1965 or Iraq in 2002.

taxtired - you're not giving them enough credit. The gov't has been working against us for only a bit over 100 years. But they have really picked up the pace in the last 75

Amazing. It only took the government a little over 200 years to run this once great country into the ground.

Yes, this plan allows ADULT children to remain on their parent's health plan until they are 24. Sure great idea for the ADULT child who can't get health insurance, but a huge financial burden for the employers and companies who now have to insure their employee's children longer. How will they afford to do it? Many employers won't be able to and as a result they will stop offering family plans and insure their employees only. The bill doesn't prevent them from doing it either. In regard to the pre-existing condition insurance plan, another great idea. The program planned to insure 350,000 people, after 100,000 applicants they stopped taking applications in February until further notice. Why? The funds aren't there to back up their idea. This should give everyone an idea of what Obamacare is going to turn into. A financial disaster!

As for the blood suckers comment, Not saying I support greed. Last I looked a business was in buiness to make money, if they don't make money they can pay their employees or invest in the future. It's time to stop blaming the other guy as our government has done for far to long and do the the right thing!

Gvill-the real cost should have been expalined to us before signed. I wouldn't buy something unless I knew the price, Why is that? because if I can't afford it I wouldn't get it. From what I have felt in my wallet already this isn't a good thing.

All I know is for the last couple weeks Michelle Obama has been on just about every talk show at the grammy's. Who paid for that? Then you have Boehner saying the sky isn't falling and Obama telling us it is. It's now Sunday two days after the big day and sky hasn't fallen. So who is being totally honest with us?

We ALL pay when an uninsured person goes to the ER instead of a local practioner.. This Bill not only protects pre-existing conditions, also allow children to be covered to age 24..Allows working poor to get insurance instead of flooding the ER's..Also preventative care is a fraction of the cost of waiting till you have to go to the ER.. Why aren't you repubs going after the real blood suckers?? (drug companies and insurance companies?) Anyway how about you wait to complain until you actually see the bills increase and have an chance to compare the new choices? You all must be psychic
