    Based on the link and requested information, their calculation is that our premiums will triple compared to what we are paying now through employer. So much for that.

    Nothing should change in my family. Neither of us have to mess with Medicare paperwork.

    I worry about the death panels, when I'm 65 and need a kidney transplant. I guess I will be just a useless eater, better to get rid of us old folk. Remember it is a business and no room for compassion, anyway the country would also save thousands on the numerous Social Security checks that would have been sent to me. Thanks Adolph!

    I worry about the current death panels...the accountants at my insurance company who decide keeping me alive would cut into their CEO's annual bonus. Kudos to SCOTUS and particularly to Chief Justice Roberts on upholding the Constitutionality of Obamacare!

    Yep; kudos to them for identifying what it really is: a tax. So now, let's find out just how much we're going to be taxed.

    The link said, as is well known, an insurance must add "kids" under 26 (I wonder if that would include married children) any annual limits will be phased out by 2014, cannot deny based on pre-existing conditions - ect...

    What do you think that will do to insurance rates?

    Then if the govt will set limit on rates - ... lets see the insurance company goes out of business - then the govt will end up being the only "insurance company" in the country - whats left of it.

    Will the South PLEASE rise again

    Very generic questionnaire with scant results. Nothing changes for me except my premiums will go up $50 a month, which is about what they would have done without ObamaCare.

    I worry about government death panels and not having a choice to go somewhere else. And this is the end goal of this legislation.

    And of course no mention was made at the OP site about the inevitable increase in insurance premium costs for all for these wonderful improvements that they are touting.

    And no mention is made about the inevitable rationing of healthcare due to the influx of new "insureds" such as millions and millions of illegal immigrants.

    The OP website is nothing more than a propoganda piece for Obama.

    I still cannot get insurance under the plan at this time because of pre-existing and costs. It will be 2014 until I can at which time the annual costs will be between 450 and 750 dollars. Because of the law it will be cheaper for me to pay the fine for not taking the insurance starting in 2014 and if I get sick and need insurance then take it out since they cannot deny me coverage for pre-existing. The problem is my neighbor will be paying for the large portion of the bill which I hold as unconstitutional. This is socialism.

    There are no death panels. That was some of the lies that the conservitives spread to strike fear in the populas. It is false.

    So then you think that it will be an endless wealth of expensive medical proceedures for all?

    No one will be denied any procedure, medicine or treatment for any reason?

    Really? :rolleyes:

    [SIZE=+0]No I did not say that. I am against this law as it not only is unconstitutional but it cannot be funded and it will lower the standard of care not enhance it. I was simply addressing a lie that some conservatives have levied. There are not death squads in the bill.
