    You are paying the health insurance bills for 97% of Obama’s “newly insured.”

    And if Governor Bentley gets his way, you’ll be paying for even more.

    ObamaCare stooges swore their scheme would bring prices down, since “everyone would have to pay something in.”

    But only 3% of the “newly insured” are actually paying into this boondoggle.

    According to Heritage Foundation, 97% of last year’s “newly insured” citizens are on ObamaCare’s expanded Medicaid scheme.

    As is usually the case, bureaucrats grossly underestimated the number of people that would apply for Medicaid in states that expanded their programs under ObamaCare.

    In fact, in some states, the number of enrollees was almost three times what was expected.

    When the bills come due, a lot of states are going to be crying about how stupid they were to fall for the Obama administration's lies. Then, they're going to want the states that weren't stupid to bail them out.

    Because, thank goodness, we are a nation where the majority care about others.

    There is a net gain by far. Your criticism is simply another conservative attempt to hide the truth.

    From http://www.factcheck.org/2014/04/millions-lost-insurance/

    Critics of the law now say millions lost their health insurance. But that’s misleading. Those individual market plans were discontinued, but policyholders weren’t denied coverage. And the question is, how many millions of insured Americans had plans canceled, and how does that compare with the millions of uninsured Americans who gained coverage under the law.

    There is evidence that far more have gained coverage than had their policies canceled.
    -----------------------------
    Millions more are expected to gain insurance because of the law nationwide in the coming years. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimates that there will be 25 million fewer uninsured due to the ACA as early as 2016.

    Only a fool would not expect the number of insured to increase when the cost is zero to them.

    Obamacare, as a whole , is a complete failure. Free insurance could have been provided with a one page bill and without disrupting the insurance programs of millions of others. The cost has always been the problem and Obama lied about that from the very beginning. A lot of states will one day be squealing for help because they believed the liar-in-chief.

    No no its fact. People lost their coverage and was forced into extremely more expensive polcies that included services they did not need with deductibles so high they no longer had the same health care coverage they once had. What was once covered for them now must come out of pocket even with these "new policies".

    What is misleading is to say that millions have received health care coverage that did not have it. Their so called coverage has deductibles so high that they to must "still" pay costs out of their pockets the same as they did before. What people are getting now is nothing more than catastrophic coverage. It is wrong and it is evil.

    To add insult to injury people are having their work hours cut back or flat out fired because of obamacare. It is hurting health care, it is hurting jobs, and it is hurting the economy.

    Yup.

    Need proof? Watch "Undercover Boss" and take note of how many employees are stating how their hours have been cut; and how one of the "bonuses" being given out this season is "we're promoting you to full-time."

    If it wasn't for The Affordable Health Care Act a friend of mine would be dead right now.
    I don't understand why so many christian republicans are against poor people getting
    access to health care. I am for a single payer system but there is know way congress
    would let that happen.

    So after years of scandal in the Dept of Veterans Affairs hospitals, you want the government running healthcare nationwide?

    Hey, the big G keeps Amtrak on schedule, doesn't it? And its postal service is so efficient that useless ads make up 2/3 or more of its delivery AISI.
