Hey at least I'm putting up numbers an facts where as all u can do is revert back to name calling, your the one who sounds like a six year old. So you don't like money?? You don't like keeping the money you work for??? Your definitely not a saint who doesn't have a need to possess things of value, because we're already heard your Antireligious rants. And I talk about money because we're talking about the ACA which in definition is about money and it's affordability

Capricorn1: "Mercury, I feel sorry for you,I think (another hypothetical word) in the coming years you are going to be very disappointed when you finally wake up and see where this country is headed." I'm completely awake, you're the one in a "coma"! In the world of commonsense things are a hellva lot better than they were back in the 2007-2008 years but, in the negative thinking world everything is wrong. How's that 401k working for you? The Koch brothers are loving it!

There's ways to get out of paying hospital bills without filing for bankruptcy, and with high deductibles and monthly payments your gona see more and more people filing for bankruptcy. The poor can't even afford their groceries for a month, how r they going to afford these hospital bills, they pay 6500 in year one then next year get another 6500 then the next year another 6500 then the next year another 6500 it's just gonna keep building up and building up. Or if it makes you feel better we can make it 3500 each year and don't forget the monthly payments. A hospital visit for anything serious with be the is 10s or 20 thousands of dollars. Minor Er visits are still thousands of dollars, a ride in an ambulance is about 4 grand. These bills are goin to build up and then were gonna get taxed to make up for people not paying the bills

There may be deductibles lower than 4500 but once I saw payments of 180/ month and higher with outrageous deductibles I didn't care to look anymore because 200 a month for insurance is out of my price range, especially because I'm very healthy have never had any health problems. All I need is a physical every so many years. I don't get flu shots, And I don't get antibiotics when I have a cold. In fact in 2013 I didn't have one hospital visit

I was young and ignorant during the first election, and had no recollection of what the real world was gonna be like after getting out of school. Now I've wised up and realized what's going on. What's your excuse

And 3500 is still a huge deductible. A 1000 dollar deductible is high I keep my cars at 500, because I can't come up with that kind of extra cash.

I'm not afraid to admit that I voted democrat the whole way down on Obamas first election. Yes!! I'm am partly responsible for what is happening now. However I became a republican on the second election. I have no affiliation with everyone else on this site just on here stating facts that I've pulled right off the Aca's website.

I don't need think you've been to the website. Whatever reads on this supposing bill may say what it says, but I've been on the website looking at the policy's. The cheapest monthly payment which is what most young people and people making less than 30,000 would choose, is a 80 some dollar payment a month with a deductible if 6500, no copayment a after deductible is paid.

I was on the website looking at the policy's mercury. I haven't listened to anyone on here. The max deductible is not 3000. The lowest deductible I saw was 4500 with a 180/ month payment

Mercury, I feel sorry for you... I think in the coming years you are going to be very disappointed when you finally wake up and see where this country is heading. And yes, Obamacare will fail, but not before it bankrupts this country even more and brings down the middle class even further. Our country can no longer sustain all of these social programs and now with Obamacare, over half the country relies on them. What does that say for this country when half the population relies on some type of government handout? VERY sad indeed.

Meldan27: By your comment on the copay being $6500, it's actually $3500 max. I don't even think you read anything at all on the "ACA" by your comment. One of the biggest reason to have the "ACA" is to help people not to go into bankruptcy. The way it was if you went to the hospital and your bill was $100,000 you would be responsible for 20% (that's $20,000 copay). Why don't you quit listening to this group of nuts (Tea Party)and read the damm thing?

leaningright: First off I wouldn't smoke crack before you write a comment,it makes no sense at all. Now for the headline, we can write all the comments and replies about "Obamacare" as it's called in your world and we can talk about unemployment, foodstamps,the President doesn't know how to salute, his socks don't match his suit and one of the more crazier statements, the Southwest airplane that landed at the wrong airport was President Obama's fault because he closed down a lot of small airport because of very little traffic,farout huh? Now if I was on the show Family feud and the question was,"why doesn't the Tea Party like President Obama",the number one answer would be, "HE IS BLACK"! As I said earlier we can talk all around the bush (not George)but,here's the funny part,"he ain't going to get any whiter"! "God bless America and President Obama"!

Capricorn1:Number one,if you have healthcare I wouldn't worry about but, to answer your question,it's only been running for four months and we both know the problems that was incurred in getting it (website) running the way it was suppose to work. Number two, if the lame a** republican run states would have setup a state website like New York, Calif. Kentucky and more which are run by the democrats and working just fine and number three, the party of nuts (Tea Party) doing everything possible to destroy it! Now, smart people know all this and I believe you are a smart person,right? Keep throwing crap against the wall, something might stick someday but, not today.

USABorn: Man, you are one hatefull person! I see you thought a lot on that new name, "Dumbamacare"? You can call it anything you want (don't you just love the USA)it still going to be "The Affordable Care Act" in the sane world! I guess you have a crystal ball you go by having all these numbers. If you get a chance can you find out what the "power ball" numbers are going to be on the next drawing? If you give them to me I will give you 99.9% of the winnings but, I won't quit my day job if I were you!

"Love you too mr. John Zook. What is your plan for the 48 million uninsured Americans?"

Prior to passage of Dumbamacare, the 48 million uninsured was made up of young people, illegals, and other uninsured. At the time, the actual NUMBER OF legitimate uninsured was around 10 million. That is the number that has caused the destruction of healthcare for all the MANY millions that have LOST their healthcare as a result of Dumbamacare. And just think of the millions and millions who will be losing their insurance as companies downsize to get under the magic number of 50 employees, cut back on hours worked, etc. Think of the millions who will lose their jobs!!!!

Mercury, if this legislation is so great, why are the uninsured not signing up? We constantly hear about the tens of millions that have no insurance, yet the enrollment numbers don't even reflect a fraction of that. Why aren't they signing up? Why aren't the young and healthy signing up if this is such an affordable program to take advantage of?

meldan27- You tell him (mercury). The ACA stinks.Put it out there. Period. He wont listen and he will tell you that you are some far right Obama hater (he, Obama said yesterday that we must not like having a black President) or Shaman will say you are a t-bagger. Tell them the truth anyways, the truth hurts.

It's called the affordable health care act idiot so why shouldn't it be affordable. Obviously in my comments I'm the only person on here liberal or republican that gave an explanation in plain old English as to why it isn't affordable

Nothing in my comments was pulled off of Fox News mercury. And what I said is it would be cheaper to pay the fine than to take obamacare, I am insured right now and before obamacare I went to the Er paid my copay of 59 bucks and later got a 150 dollar bill very reasonable. I got all my mess relatively cheap maybe 15 bucks. Now under obamacare if I go with a 6500 dollar deductible I'd be paying the full bill. Make sense to u now. I'll be losing my insurance in May, and have to decide what it is I'm gonna do about insurance. And unlike you liberal scumbags I don't want your handout or money drive
