some hospitals are not going to take any people covered by exchange plans. so much for the best medical care in the world. it will only go downward in the future.

Looks to me like this entire program is a colossal failure.

Obama has been in over his head since the day he took the oath of office.

I am embarrassed for my black friends as his legacy will be not very pretty I fear.

Hopefully the result will cause some entrenched members of congress to be given the boot next year.

Otherwise I'm afraid that the future is pretty dim for our grandchildren.

The program was designed to fail, because it was based upon wealth redistribution from the middle class; its authors failed to take into account its devastating effect on health care jobs, the health care industry, and the U.S. economy as a whole; and it relied upon the blind loyalty of enough Americans who would allow it to be enacted in the face of its "massive flaws" based upon partisan politics.

People blame John Roberts for casting the deciding vote to affirm the constitutionality of the legislation. I applaud him for having the insight to allow ObamaCare to fail on its own. If he would have ruled the other way, it would have given the Democrats a tremendous issue and talking points for as far as the eye could see in the upcoming elections. Now, the shoe is obviously on the other foot and it is the Democrats who will pay for "passing the law before they knew what was in it." (This will be Nancy Pelosi's "read my lips" catchphrase legacy.)

This issue will continue to boil until the taxpayers most negatively affected can say so at the 2014 ballot box. Insurance companies who jack up their rates and cancel health care plans because of ObamaCare will not be blamed FOR ObamaCare. Doctors and hospitals who won't see ObamaCare patients because of ObamaCare won't be blamed FOR ObamaCare. The Republicans will not be blamed for ObamaCare. The Tea Party will not be blamed for Obamacare.

The President and his party will get the blame. And now we know that they knew what would happen all along. See:

Just read this and thought I would share.

"If you like your plan, you can keep it"
fourhkUnless you're one of the estimated 400,000 in Georgia alone who will lose existing healthcare plans because of ObamaCare. That's the estimate by Georgia Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens. Presumably, that's one of the effects of ObamaCare that Hudgens was trying to help Georgia families avoid when he said he was resisting ObamaCare.

But it's okay, President Obama says you can "just shop around" on a website that doesn't work for coverage you may not be able to afford.

When you are already scrimping and saving to make ends meet, and they either jack up your rates or make you buy a different plan which costs more and contains features you don't want or need - that's not "affordable" health care.

The only plan that I know we have here in Georgia is Blue Cross & Blue Shield... Do you know of any others in Georgia?

sebekm commented on Friday, Nov 01, 2013 at 19:01 PM

When I was helping my daughter look for insurance, the ones we considered were BCBSGA and Humana. According to a usnews.com web site:

"(S)ix insurance carriers will offer individual health plans through the Health Insurance Marketplace. They are: Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, Alliant Health Plans, Ambetter from Peach State Health Plan, Humana Employers Health Plan of Georgia, Humana Insurance Company, and Kaiser Foundation Health Plan of Georgia."

See: http://health.usnews.com/health-insur...

Here is the main page for this site. Looks like it contains some very helpful info:

Thanks for sharing! I will check on it, I'm not going to hold my breath!

Yes - this is the problem. In addition to your link, THIS ONE goes into the issue in excruciating detail. I have always liked and respected Larry Kudlow. He has a show on CNBC at 7 p.m weekdays that I occasionally watch. It's the only show I watch on CNBC, and it comes on after the only show I sometimes watch on FNC - Bret Baier from 6-7 p.m. In additional to business information, Kudlow has guests which discuss the impact of politics on large and small businesses and the economy.

Anyway - in this article, Kudlow discusses the issue of CHOICE (or lack thereof) in ObamaCare. From its title, you can tell Kudlow does not subscribe to the philosophy of the left.

In fact - I just read Kudlow's article again. It is so good - so clearly states the issues and the facts - that I think I'll build a new blog around it.
