    *5 Reasons Obamacare Won’t Save You*
    The official enrollment period for the Affordable Care Act’s
    “transformative” health care reforms – aka Obamacare – goes into effect on
    Tuesday October 1.

    Here’s are the five biggest things you need to know.

    1. Obamacare won’t stop premiums from rising. Premiums were rising before
    the health law, and Obamacare isn’t going to change that. The law’s biggest
    effect will be in the individual market, where, for some people, plans are
    likely to be significantly more expensive than individual market plans were
    before the law — even, in some cases, after the application of
    taxpayer-funded subsidies.

    2. Employers will drop benefits and reduce hours. Obamacare’s rules forcing
    employers to cover employees working more than 30 hours a week will push
    some companies to trim hours and create more part-time staff. This is
    already happening, including one case where an Obamacare call center made
    sure its many of its workers were part-timers! It’s likely that several
    million people will transition from their current employer insurance to the
    exchanges. Some estimates say the numbers could be even higher, which would
    mean that taxpayers end up shelling out for more subsidies.

    3. Don’t expect the exchanges to work smoothly. The administration has
    failed to hit many of Obamacare’s implementation deadlines so far and its
    likely that the law’s insurance exchanges aren’t ready for primetime.
    Online enrollment is definitely being delayed in at least one state —
    Oregon. Reports are surfacing that the pricing mechanism isn’t working
    right in the federal exchanges that will be running in 34 states.

    4. Health care entitlements are still the nation’s biggest fiscal problem.
    Over the next 25 years, federal spending on “major health care programs” is
    expected to rise from about 4.6 percent of the economy to about 8 percent.
    About a quarter of that rise is specifically due to Obamacare. More than
    anything else, federal spending on programs such as Medicare – and now
    Obamacare – is why spending patterns are unsustainable.

    5. Don’t expect the law to be delayed or defunded. Republicans in Congress
    have been making a big fuss to defund or delay Obamacare. But congressional
    options for killing Obamacare are slim right now. There are still some
    legal challenges in the works that could impair the law but the smart money
    is that most of the law’s provisions go forward as scheduled.

    Question: Will Obamacare cover the cost of a 10 inch dido to shove up the
    ass of every fucktard that voted for him?

    You’re an idiot dude, your comments on this video perfectly demonstrate
    that. I’ll keep this in mind, just in case I decide to put you in Kook
    Central at some point.

    Everyone in this country needs health insurance, that’s a given. If private
    insurance could have done this job, the federal government would never have
    stepped in as it did. But private insurance did not do their jobs, that’s
    why we have Obamacare! Its really that simple! No smoke and mirrors folks!

    After reading your 3 comments, I totally agree. Their are 50 million people
    on food stamps, how are they going to be able to pay for Obamacare? Our
    government has created nothing but misery for most of the American people.

    03 People like Hillary Clinton and Obama. The same people who are exempt
    and can afford any level of healthcare they choose. Good luck squeezing
    fines from the uninsured poor. I hope all you privileged politicians enjoy
    the misery you have created.
