Insurance investment in stock market may decline so another recession is likely.
Will have to borrow more money from China to pay the Medicare and Medicaid for millions whose employers will not pay for insurance.
All older workers are grandfathered into a position that they cannot use Obamacare.

So, all this can be done without raising premiums?

The more I hear and read about this new law the less I understand what all the fuss was about and why so many wanted to stop it from being passed.

While illegal immigrants may not officially be covered by ObamaCare (and subject to the penalty tax for failing to comply) , they ARE COVERED by a $28.8 million grant tucked away inside the monstrous Affordable Care Act.

The grant to 67 community health centers offering FREE care to migrant works (often illegal immigrants) was announced on Aug. 9, 2011, by the Department of Health and Human Services.

According to HHS spokeswoman Judy Andrews, as part of that grant “approximately $8.5 million will be used by 25 New Access point awardees to target services to migrant and seasonal farm workers.”

To all those that support Obamacare, careful what you wish for with this will bring Obama's bottom-up economics which IS socialism.

Read the article, folks & disregard the profoundly ignorant posts from the individuals who care more about money than people.

Obama & Co. got us the best deal they could with the bought members of Congress who strive to serve their corporate masters & make them richer. It's the uber-wealthy who have robbed us, not our neighbors in need !

Pamylle, the administration obviously doesn't care about our military retirees as they are the first traget of this badly flawed health care plan; Medicare for all would have been so much better and eliminated the insurance and medical lobbies. I've shared this in a few other messages on Obamacare but this screw job needs emphasis. MOAA is our counterpart of AARP.
The Office of Management and Budget has issued a "statement of Administration policy" threatening to veto the FY2013 Defense Appropriations Act (H.R. 5856) approved by the House Appropriations Committee for being out of line with the Administration's defense budget proposals.

Among other complaints, it says, "The Administration is disappointed that the Congress did not incorporate the requested TRICARE fee initiatives into either the appropriation or authorization legislation. The Administration asks the House to reconsider the TRICARE fee proposals, which are essential for DOD to successfully address rising personnel costs. The $1.8 billion in savings are part of a carefully balanced FY 2013 Budget request."

MOAA and House leaders, on the other hand, are disappointed that the Administration still insists that career service families who have sacrificed more for their country than any other Americans should be first in line to pony up a $1,000 to $2,000 annual "health care tax."

Our shared view is that Defense Department leaders' first budget priority should be to address their own financial oversight responsibilities rather than just shifting costs to beneficiaries because that's the easiest way to cut costs.

MOAA is pleased that the House-passed Defense Authorization Bill (H.R. 4310) would take a step in this direction by requiring the Pentagon to establish a unified medical command to put all of the currently fragmented and competing health care delivery systems under a single point of responsibility. Multiple government studies have recommended this for years as a way of saving billions in health costs over the long term. But defense leaders have resisted it at every turn.

This past week, the Supreme Court handed down its decision on "The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPCA)", also known as Obamacare.  For most part, the court ruled in favour of the constitutionality of this legislation fuelling more of the GOP and Tea-Party rhetoric.

Among other newsworthy topics of the week, Fred and Marg will be discussing the Court's ruling and the public reaction.

Join Fred and Marg on "Lies My Country Told Me", Saturday, June 30th at 2:00 pm Eastern Standard Time, 1:00 pm Central, 12:00 pm Mountain, 11:00 Pacific and last, but not least, 3:00 pm Atlantic. You can join us in the chatroom or call in and give your opinion to (346) 677-1814.

People with disabilities cannot be denied coverage. Children can remain on parents' coverage to age 26. Women cannot be charged more than men for same coverage. Coverage cannot be cancelled because you get sick. Every policy will cover basic preventative care that, when used, reduces future health care costs. Coverage can no longer have lifetime limits so if you have a major health event or condition you end without related coverage before your care need ends. If you are paying for your own insurance, you get a tax break as do many businesses. Medicare recipients close the 'donut hole' faster (seniors and the disabled). In combination, with just these benefits the vast majority of Americans receive a noticeable benefit...the so called harms remain speculative and projected...time will tell what the final cost-benefit balance turns out to be, but in the short term the benefits are already being experienced by millions.....
