How much has Obamacare screwed up your life?

Just wondering if anyone has died or gone bankrupt or lost thier job or can no longer find medical care like all the republicans predicted a year ago today.

  • My sister has gone bankrupt . . . but it is because she had cancer and her premiums shot up . . . . her portion of the bill is also high. It is not due to Obamacare. It is due to our broken medical system and privatized helath plans.

  • My health benefits were going down while rates rose a year before the election. Obamacare has done nothing to change my situation.

  • No. My health care plan was not affected by this. I get Tricare or if I wanted to, I could go to the VA.

  • Considering it won't be fully implemented until 2014...it's kind of hard to tell!!!!

    How about we hold off on the "impact statements" until this crap comes to fruition. Of course I'm hoping the fiscal conservatives can defund it, and/or the SCOTUS rules it unconstitutional!!

  • LOL. Not at all.
    By the way.....
    It is called "Health Care"....not "Obamacare",even though Republicans (Conservatives) want to call it that,.
