  • It looks like a cluster fuck to me. I know a lot of people think Obamacare will be their salvation, but I see a bad moon on the rise.

  • I can't wait until January first when I can go health insurance shopping and not be denied by every company I apply to!

  • Used their calculator to double check something. Everyone who earns less than the poverty level, but lives in a state that refuses to expand medicaid to spite Obama, will be required to pay up to 100% of their income for mandatory insurance coverage, receive 0 subsidy from the federal program because they don't earn enough to qualify, and will be penalized on taxes if they refuse (as well as still not having any insurance).

    Who exactly was this supposed to help again?
