Obama Care

According to the latest number there are forty four million Americans without health care coverage. This is due to the cost or to the availability of health insurance. It was with this in mind that President Obama passed the Affordable Care Act notably known as Obama Care. This is supposed to provide every American with health insurance. While Obama Care is highly controversial it is designed to make the lives of Americans better. The question most Americans have is how all of this affects them. This is a hard question to answer because the Obama Care is over one thousand pages long and it seems that no one has read them all.

The Problems

When you have a document with over one thousand pages, not everything in Obama Care works for everyone. There are things within Obama Care that simply do not make sense. The first is that every American must have insurance or pay a penalty. This is the biggest item of contention. First, this goes against everything that being an American stands for. We are supposed to be the home of the free and yet the government is now telling Americans what to do with their money.

Another problem is that no one really understands what this program is all about. In order to purchase your affordable health insurance you go to a website called the Marketplace. You can visit this web site by going to www.healthcare.gov. This website is supposed to answer all of your questions. They even have a number that you can call in order to talk to a live person. The problem is that if you call and talk to two different people you may get two different answers to the same question.

The Benefits of Obama Care

The biggest thing that Obama Care does is that if you work for a company that does not offer health care insurance, you can now get it. This is great for those that do not have health insurance available. It also has different options for those that fall into the low income demographic. So how many benefits Obama Care offers depends on your circumstances.

As conservatives wait for January 2015 with baited breath, so that they can have yet another swing at repealing the Affordable Care Act, there is one key fact that citizens of the United States must become aware of: Obamacare is working.

The Affordable Care Act is lowering the annual increases in health-related spending. A recent announcement by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services indicates that healthcare spending in the United...Continue reading

Obamacare Keeping Medicare Costs Low in Alabama

Affordability and access: those are the two main focuses of the Affordable Care Act. One year into its establishment, critics and champions of the ACA continue to judge the legislation based on these two factors – most recently in the state of Alabama, where Obamacare has kept Medicare affordable and accessible to over 800,000 recipients. Secretary of Health and Human Services Sylvia Burwell has released a statement saying that Medicare Part B premiums and deductibles will not change in the year 2015. Both will remain at the same level they were in 2013 and 2014, which means that premiums will...Continue reading

State Healthcare Exchanges Flush $474 Million Down the Drain

Posted on September 17, 2014 by adminadmin
Gambling is risky business. Ultimately, it’s all a game of luck. Tax dollars should not be associated with either. They shouldn’t be gambled. Luck should never enter the equation. When it comes to the cash earned under the sweat of the American brow, every cent should be spent wisely, invested wisely. Unfortunately for the taxpayers of Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada and Oregon, that wasn’t the case. The funds used to make the Affordable Care Act accessible – aka the nation’s tax dollars – were funneled into two sites. The first was the federal exchange, Healthcare.gov. The second was comprised of state-specific...Continue reading
