"Around the country, progressive bullies have attacked Christians for daring to put their faith ahead of the pet causes of those who feign compassion while destroying life-giving liberties. What we are seeing is a scorched-earth, take-no-prisoners approach as the wildfire burns across our land. It is not enough that Christians be quiet. Christians must be silenced and punished. Their faith cannot be respected. Legislation that ensures people are free to live and work according to their faith without fear of being punished by government must be stopped and decried as discrimination...There is one key reason that those on the Left must force their beliefs on the rest of us: if they didn't force their craziness on us, we would never embrace it." ~Erick Erickson
http://healthcare.gov to allow small businesses to enroll for coverage on 1/1/2014. So, yes, this is a minor delay but that is why they had a three month ramp up. Still on 10/1, small businesses can use http://healthcare.gov to find out their health care purchasing options. Then they have two more months to purchase said insurance before the 1/1/2014 go-live of Obamacare.
No big deal. Don't try to make it a big deal.
Are you going to miss being excluded because of preexisting conditions? Discrimination? No cap? Insecurity?
If the ACA were really concerned about the poor person with no insurance, they would have forced all the health insurance companies to go not-for-profit and limited their overhead and executive pay... but the reality is that the ACA is a huge handout to the larger insurance companies that can handle the huge amount of increased paperwork.
The biggest tell tail sign that this law is a stinker is that the government has had to hire 'navigators' to educate and help people through they myriad of new regulations.
You do realize that Obama and most democrats want a single payer insurance like the UK has. We have the ACA thanks to Republicans and insurance and big pharma lobbyists right?
The pain comes from knowing that we have never been safe, and therefore will never be safe again. It comes from knowing we can never be so ignorant again. It comes from knowing we can never be children again. Losing innocence. Remembering heaven. That was the essence of hell. -John Jakes
Not to mention that the Canadian and UK health systems are having real issues right now.... the German one seems the best and has been around the longest and is still in good shape... not to mention it absorbed all of east Germany and still is in the black.
As to the navigators, there is a great deal of *misinformation and fear mongering* being spread by Right Wingnut propagandists that needs to be combated and as with anything new, some education. This is to ensure its *success* in reaching the uninsured and helping them get insured. Sorry you think it should be "automatic"... that's not the way things work. There are a good many volunteers who want to help people, but you're free to gripe from the sidelines and be useless.
You Dems set yourself up for this.. you deserve it.
As far as single payer.. if its like the German system, I am all for it. If its like the Canadian or British system we should be very afraid.
