Look at the fallout this Obama seduction has already had. Employees, barely making it now, will have their hours reduced. Many will be forced to take second jobs and there goes the family. Americans too busy trying to survive to be able to protect the freedoms Obama wants to take away.

I think one of the money/power people's hope is that with the fall out from Obama's poisoned bait, we will all be too busy trying to survive we won't have time to defend our freedoms.

From the White House: "If you want tangible evidence of the way that the new health care law is already helping ordinary people, it's worth having a conversation with one of the 8.5 million Americans who received rebates from their insurance companies this summer. Just ask the folks who got checks in the mail.

Because of the Affordable Care Act, insurers are required to spend at least 80 percent of premium dollars on medical care, instead of overhead like salaries or advertising. And if an insurance company doesn't meet that standard, it has to provide a rebate to its customers. "

My feeling is that most people are still buying into the Fox News type hype - This is not a perfect plan but there is a lot of good to it.

Once Obama puts this into full force, it remains to be seen.

In spite of the Rebubs. a lot of Americans are being helped by some of his policies.

No rebate check here. The company that "provides" health insurance is "self-insured" even though it comes out of the paycheck. Medicare For All!
