The SC disagrees, they said that states can opt out and their Medicaid funds from the Feds can't be cut. Taxpayers will pay the increased taxes and increased insurance premiums and have to schedule doctor's visits years in advance. The public disapproves of Obama Care by 42 percent to 35 percent.. These folks are voters.
ok, that is fine. Whether you like Obamacare or not, it is still the Law. Vote Romney in, than you get Romney care. Regardless, you will be mandatory required to pay for insurance or the Government will take your money and pay for it anyway. And this is regardless of what SC voters want.
A good Law!

I have no idea, but I do find it amusing, again, that conservatives who believe things that have been disproven (by fossil records, for instance) have little room to ridicule those who speculate on the possibility of the existence of other life forms in our vast universe.
Why wouldn't Republicans agree in life on other worlds? They plan on voting for Romney, who believes that God is on another planet! He also believes that he too will become a God in the afterlife and live on his own planet. So, there you are Republicans..........proof that there is life on other planets. lol

Well, Obamacare is cast in stone. So how does it affect you? Well. If you don’t have heath insurance, better start looking. On the other hand, you continue to not have insurance, but you can kiss your IRS refund good bye.

To see what effect this is going to have on you and your family, click here for a neat Obamacare Calculator:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/special/... #

Here’s an example:

A married family of 2 over 26, that currently doesn’t have insurance:

Right now:
If you have been unable to obtain health insurance as a result of a pre-existing medical condition, you may be able to buy it through one of the “high risk pools” the law has set up in each state through the end of 2013. But the premiums in the pools vary and can be high.

Starting in 2014:
You will have the option of buying a health plan through your state's exchange with federal assistance. Based on your income, your annual premiums for that plan would be no more than $3,623 to $4,275. Your maximum out-of-pocket costs for deductibles and co-payments would be capped at 30 percent of the total cost.

Insurers can’t discriminate against you for having a pre-existing condition, and can only vary rates within a narrow range.

If you do not obtain insurance coverage by 2014 you will be assessed a tax penalty. The penalty becomes progressively greater from 2014 through 2016, when it reaches full strength. At that point, assuming your current income remains the same and your household consists of 2 uninsured adults, your family would be subject to a penalty of about $1,390. You are exempt from the penalty if the least expensive plan option in your area exceeds eight percent of your income.

So you’re looking at paying $300-400 per month more than you spend now, and if you chose not to insure, your refund is up in smoke. If your normal IRS refund is $700, you’ll now have to PAY the IRS another $690.

Good deal, huh?

I don't like it and the fat lady hasn't sung yet. Romney will repeal it and the new health care law won't resemble this one.I already pay for my insurance, I just don't want to pay for yours.
Holder is about to be held in contempt.
I don't blame you on not wanting to pay for my health care. Just like I don't want to pay for yours either. And that is my point. This law will make each person pay for their own.
People saw insurance premiums increase here. But, when the insurance company saw people jump to Romney care, the insurance companies were forced to compete and that brought the premiums back down drastically. Do some research.
No law is without glitches, but once they are worked out .. Americans always have and always will come together on the final outcome. This is a good law.

Forget it dude. We'd not only need Romney in the White House, but we'd need 60 votes in the Senate. That ain't gonna happen.

Now, how do you know that, when Romney won't put forth a "Plan" on anything...he won't even say what he advocates on ANYTHING, Healthcare or anything else. So, you have NO way of knowing that! And don't even try to tell us that Romney "has your ear"...even you can't lie well enough to pull that off, Vet!

It will only take 51 votes in the Senate, I heard that today. New president, 51 Republicans in the Senate.

Limbaugh has already called on Republicans to "defeat these bastards" and "wipe them out!"

The little bullies don't play well with others. It's there way or nothing at all.
They yell about the constitution and when there own chief justice says ObamaCare is constitutional, they call him names too. The Republican Party is screwed up!

finally a good law wrote:
This is a good law. When people get critically sick they seek medical treatment. A heart attack approx 2 million in costs. They get treated, file bankruptcy and the tax payers foot the bill.
Medicaid is a Fed program, they should call the shots since they pay for it. The states that opt out should be forced to foot their own bills.
Regardless, this law will provide healthcare for all children, in spite of irresponsible parents. If they don't buy insurance, slap their stupid head, take their money and buy it for them ... hurray!
Finally, our country is waking up.
Good law? Are you out of your fkin mind?

Do you realize that now, if you do not pay your medical bills they will TAKE YOUR HOME and PROPERTY.

In 2014. That's when everyone will either have to get insurance or pay a tax. The fact that the U.S. Supreme Court has now ruled the federal government has the power to tax Americans into mandatory purchases of private industry products means an end to economic freedom in America.

It hands the federal government the power to force the American people to buy anything the government wants or face tax penalties for refusing to do so.

In sections 440 and 1904 on page 838 of the House bill, government aggregates unto itself the right to invade the home of any citizen with minor children in order to institute “home visitation programs for families with young children and families expecting children.” The supposed goal is to “help” train parents in the government approved style of child rearing.

Now, you do understand what this means, don’t you? This means that if the government perfunctory that enters the home decides in her wisdom that the children in the home are not being raised in the government approved way, why then the Department of Children and Family Services will be called in to remove the children from the home.

You better go back and rethink this.
