....and next year will be even less, since I have had to get new health insurance with almost twice the current cost, $5000 per year higher deductibles, less prescription coverage, etc., and our own state legislators increasing the cost of gas and drivers fees. Can't wait for the increases in property taxes.

CarlHiller: Ask the people in New York, Wisconsin,Kentucky or even California who have their own "exchanges" set up (all have Democratic governors)if their unhappy with the "ACA". Maybe you should move and get away from a state that is run by the "redcoats"?

Mercury- It is failing in every way, just own up to that fact. I have healthcare and prefer that the govt stay out of my healthcare, it is none of the govts business and they are incompetent. Sebelius, Reid, Pelosi, Obama must go.

If you have a healthcare plan and want to keep it you can, if you have a doctor and want to keep him you can. LIES Mercury, ALL Lies. He is a lier, face up to it. He is also an amature at with foreign policy.

Mercury- You can call Cruz and Rand anything you want but you have to defend Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, have fun with that task. Cruz was wrong in his approach but correct about the ACA.

MECURY2,

Stupid response?

"leaningright: So,you would rather have a great gift for Christmas, like a "Bobblehead" of Ted Cruz or Rand Paul instead of health insurance? I guess we all have different priorities in life"

That's a stupid response. You, nor I or anyone else knows anything about this passed law outside of the realities that are surfacing. People, millions have lost their insurances, millions more can't log onto a site without further confusion, lies upon lies from this administration (that's nothing new) companies laying off full time employees in lieu of paying insurance, and hello? Did you take note the results of this poll? And, this is from a local perspective? Stupidity is not facing reality, that's what stupidity is.

First, leaningright complains."The ACA hurts everybody and the economy, Period." Next leaningright says " I have healthcare and prefer that the govt stay out of my healthcare". This is apparently supported by " I have had to get new health insurance with almost twice the current cost, $5000 per year higher deductibles, less prescription coverage...". This is apparently a private policy. I personally do not know 1 person who lost their insurance. I do know insurance premiums increased annually before the AHCA and continue to do so. Too many posts rely on politically oriented "information". I need to hear first-hand from someone who has lost a viable policy. I am also unsure as to why the conservatives complain about their financial state. The conservatives claim to have knowledge re: money management. Why did you not plan for the future? Why did you think the employer provided healthcare and Cobra plans would continue forever? I am a moderate who

Why did you not plan for the future? Spike 2

Really this is what you came up with? So the people that are making a living and barely getting by are irresponsible because other people do not have health care and now it is their responsibility to pay for it. You are right they should have planned ahead

rmiller: leaningright statement was that people won't have money to buy gift because they are being FORCED to buy healthcare. This statement was made on a previous poll I believe the Sun had before. And your other lamea** comment let me put it into something simple to understand, "if people don't have healthcare they will now but, if everyone already had healthcare there wouldn't be an "ACA".Now what is your party's plan for healthcare if the "ACA" is bad?

rmiller: Your comment, "stupid response" why not send this to all the people of this great country who don't have healthcare, it will put a smile on their face. I guess you just want to kill the messenger. Next time you go into a McD's or Pappy John's ask them how they like their healthcare plan making 7-8 bucks an hour! Let me know how you make out and by the way tell them you are trying your hardest to stop them from getting it. Thanks for being a fellow American!

Mercury, so if we have liar in office we should all just pipe down until they leave lest the rest of the world laugh at us. Is that the best ya got? They are laughing at us because O is such a dud not because we call him the liar he is. What flavor is the Kool-Ade today? As for the question, kids are all but gone and have other needs than gifts under a tree and the Mrs. and I took a nice trip this summer to cover all gifts for all events for a year. The memories are better than wrapping paper.

nobud74: Hey, I tried to be fair and not mention your old bud G.W.but, facts are facts so I guess I'll call Bush a liar too so now we're even. If I told you something that wasn't true and you told all your friend and they found out it wasn't true, would you be a liar? The President depends on people in his administration to give him correct information, so let's say your the President and you told everyone that everything was correct in what you told the people but, later we find out it wasn't correct then you as the President is a liar or you were given the wrong information. So, this is your point,right? Why would the President get in front of all America and lie? Need a reason "nobud74"? I live in a world of "commonsense",sorry!

nobud74: The reason the world is laughing is because we have a Congress with a 10% approval rating and a President who can't get anything done because of this "nut group" of Tea Party members! If someone used the bathroom in the White House and it was out of toliet paper, IT'S THE PRESIDENT WHO SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS AND DIDN'T REFILL THE T.P.! Stupid comment needs a stupid reply! Please come join us in the world of "commonsense", you'll sleep better. Stop thinking the American people are blind to what the Tea Party is doing to this great country we live in! Just think in three years you will be taking shots at HILLARY.

Spending about 90% less this year.

When does the Affordable part of the ACA kick in? And, what right does the government have under the law to have my medical records and Dr's visit sent to them? If I want the government to know I have 3 nuts I'd tell them.

Mercury, if you want to call GW a liar, that is fine with me. I believe the facts are that the intelligence agencies from many countries made the same claims. But, that is another matter. You are entitled to your opinion. (BTW, I don't believe we should have gone, stayed nor given up our rights/privacy via the Patriot Act.) But, where I am able to see past the rhetoric with respect to "my" official, you are blinded and in lock step with "your" official. That, my friend, is the problem. And, the world is laughing at O. I believe you would be hard pressed to find someone in another country who could name any members of our legislature, let alone describe why they are so inept. They have their own problems with inept and corrupt pols and the target always falls on the guy at the top--just like sports.

nobud74:Yes, I will call G.W.Bush a lair (Weapons of Mass Destruction)not because I want to, I respect all presidents this great country has had, I just wanted to compare your definition of "liar" as you call OUR President! The way I understand your comment is that only democrats "lie",ie:President Obama.You "Redcoats" believe what you want to and throw the rest away,ie: G.W.Bush. As far as the rest of your comment, I'm not wasting my time. I'm done!
