Hey two years ago when we were all saying these things we were the liars. Now that title goes to those that were saying those words. I find it hard to believe that some people believed all those lies and bought into the plan, well nobody is really buying the plan but you know what I meant. Next up, the tax man...

Your 2014 tax return will ask if you had insurance coverage or qualified for an exemption. If not, you may owe a shared responsibility payment when you file in 2015. In “The Individual Shared Responsibility Payment- An Overview” the agency warns Americans they must prove they were covered each and every month of the year: For any month in 2014 that you or any of your dependents don’t maintain coverage and don’t qualify for an exemption, you will need to make an individual shared responsibility payment with your 2014 tax return filed in 2015.

No, TOT, we were considered "racist". The first lie was Obama politicing on the premise that we would have 48 hours to review a bill before it was voted on.

What disgusting game of morality this President is playing. He firmly believes anyone's moral ledger can be held in the Red if all the Black ink is ignored. The same is expected of us..embrace and applaud Government Programs while ignoring all the damage they create. As Brutus was to Caesar, Obama is to America.. an enemy, not an ally.

Isn't this a cut in the funding for subsidies for the purchase of Medicare Advantage programs? Don't the insurance companies (who provide the Medicare Advantage plans) dictate their premiums?

Read the Title of the Article these cuts are to the insurance companies who were being paid a premium to push Medicare Advantage programs. These are not cuts to benefits or services.

You are always crying that the government gives away too much, now the tears are because benefits will be cut. Make up your mind.

Americans without health insurance have never seen Obamacare is such a negative light.

Kaiser Family Foundation’s monthly health tracking poll found that in February, 56 percent of the uninsured view the Affordable Care Act unfavorably.

The percentage of uninsured with a positive view reached its lowest point since Kaiser began tracking reactions in March 2010 when Obamacare was passed into law. Just 22 percent of uninsured Americans have a generally favorable opinion about the law.

Over 6 million people lost the insurance that they could keep, period... but those that tell their stories are the liars! With enrollment numbers very low there is still a large decline in insured Americans due directly to the ACA. So tell me the benefit from raising medical costs, higher premiums, higher deductibles and medicare cuts to our seniors?
