Was a great play

its sad that Obamacare killed it.

I used the calculator

I used the calculator tool...

http://kff.org/interactive/subsidy-calculator/

looks like my family policy with a 14k deductible would be around 10K a year...and I'd still be responsible for 30% of all costs. So I pay 100% of the first 14K, 10K in yearly premiums, and then still pay 30% of all medical bills over 14K?

Time to get rid of all health insurance.

John C. is right. Insurance is the problem, not the solution.

Jun 13, 2013 -..a physician compensation report by WebMD site Medscape found 6% of doctors had a concierge or cash-only practice this year.

That's for me. I was paying $1550 per month at age 57 no smoking.

Gives you an idea of costs without having to give all your personal identifying data to the feds.

Obama is going to make a lot of converts to the revolution.

Have you seen this facebook post from one guy's experience with Obamacare?

Guys opts out so gets email warning of $4,037 fine, followed by suspension of drivers license, followed by lien on property.

As is usual with government, drop your pants, bend over, grab your ankles.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

This man sounds scared.

By just inquiring, they now have all his personal information and are threating him? People will wake up and be very afraid.

Enough of these stories might be thread worthy

taken together. Thoughts?

I heard one of the owners on the radio today

Said no way they can afford the Obamacare mandate

"The money is just not there"

It's too bad, a lot of people now going to be jobless.
