And now back to the real topic... why yes unequivocally I do! That was long enough lets go back to the much more intensive talk about Obama and his total failure to stop al Qaeda forcing the most powerful country to retreat after claiming that they were soundly defeated... fail!

This is still all speculation. I'm waiting for Sept. when the House votes on the next Continuing Resolution. If all goes well, the House will fund everything EXCEPT anything related to obamacare funding. Then it becomes the Dems. problem to either accept the CR as is or shut down the Govt over obamacare. Either way, Dems still own obamacare.

The White House has approved a deal that will create a regulatory fix for members of Congress and their staff related to some of the provisions of the Affordable Care Act, according to media reports. Under the law, popularly referred to as Obamacare, lawmakers and their aides were required to source health insurance "created" by the law or offered through one of its exchanges; and without the subsidies they currently have, the members of Congress would have faced thousands of dollars in additional premium payments each year, the reports said. However, the Office of Personnel Management now plans to rule that the government can continue to make a contribution to the health-care premiums of the lawmakers and their staff, according to unnamed congressional sources and a White House official.

I fully agree with those that disagree, it is purely disgusting how the Obama regime has rolled over our constitution and flattened our economy! JOBS, FULL time jobs are what would make the USA right this sinking ship. Let the blame and the lies from Obama continue... 3 years till we elect the Benghazi murderess Clinton to the white house! Sweet? NOT!

Obama said he will delay the employer mandate, even though he does not have the authority to change the law at will. It takes an act of congress. And then there are those people who were counting on the mandated insurance form their employer. Seems the personal mandate should also be delayed by an act of congress.

If obamacare is so great then why are Congressional staffers crying a river that it will be too expensive and begging for waivers or they'll have to quit their jobs?....Because THEY read the **** Bill, that, and knowing they will never find a comparable job in the 'booming' private sector puts them in the same toilet where everybody else is that's why. In my opinion these complaints from staffers, unions and exemptions for big business but not for the individual mandate is a ruse to get to Obamas real goal of a single payer pizz-poor system like England.

"Mr. Werfel, last week your employees who are a member of the National Treasury Employee's Union sent a form letter for union members to send in to ask they be exempt from the exchanges," a congressman asked. "Why are your employees trying to exempt themselves from the very law that you're tasked to enforce?"

“Count the head of the IRS among the growing list of folks that includes Big Labor and the law’s chief architect who are deeply skeptical of the President’s signature achievement and don’t want any part of it.

The problems with Obamacare are plentiful and the only difference now is DEMOCRATS that were on board fully with this law have had a few years to READ IT and now say it is not going to work. You cannot mandate how a person eats, thinks or drinks. Just ask a progressive!

Monthly premium for individual ranged from a high of $902.13 (HIPIC) to a low of $397.25 (Freelancers). I guess we will have to check the fine print on this one. Those were the Platimum rates. The numbers were similar throughout the tiers. The real proof will be in the following years as companies re-evaluate whether to stay go or change rates. My feeling is that it will go up as the experience ratings check in. Family plans are 2.85 times the individual rates.

I know a lot of over weight people that choose to not do anything about it. And when I see the population with so many overweight people, and very few thin people, its hard to even make a comparison anymore. So fat is the normal weight. Very sad.

Go on the DOH website and look at the monthly healthcare premiums through the exchange that starts next year. DRASTCALLY lower than previously. Just shows how much the Insurance companies were screwing individuals up until this point. How come with government intervention, my premiums now will go WAY down. It's about time, so TOT and Druggie, keep saying that premiums will go up and maybe you'll talk yourself into believing that, no matter how untrue it is?
