I will not participate in a train wreck that will destroy this great nation. I will pay out of pocket.
all this train wreck will do is put us on the same path that is bankrupting all those socialist nations.
I will refuse to pay the fine/tax and hope to be the first to get thrown in jail refusing to do so

I have Insurance and I am keeping it and here is the notice my company sent out.

"Under the Affordable Care Act (Healthcare Reform), XXXXXXXX is required by the U.S. Department of Labor to provide all employees with the enclosed notice. As you read the notice, keep in mind that any individual who has access to “affordable coverage” (as defined by the regulations) is not eligible for subsidized coverage through a state health insurance marketplace. XXXXXXX’s health plan meets the definition of “affordable coverage”, and therefore any XXXXXXX employee who is eligible to participate in our health plan would not qualify for subsidized coverage through the exchange.

XXXXXXXX employees who are not eligible for our health coverage (for example due to part-time status) may want to explore individual health insurance options available through a public exchange as they may qualify for federal subsidies described in the notice.
Contact information about each state’s health insurance marketplace can be found online at: www.healthcare.gov.

The Healthcare Exchange (marketplace) plans will become effective January 1, 2014 and information about the exchange plan options will be available online starting October 1, 2013 at www.healthcare.gov."


So theres nothing for me to do. My company was already offering good insurance, well, at lease insurance that qualifies. Personally every insurance i have had for the last 15 years as progressively got worse, some in small steps, some in large steps.

This is why healthcare was broke and needed fixing. Will this be the fix? im sure it wont, it will need tweaked and parts of it redone as we go but its a start and Id much rather do this than nothing.

As of today, nothing. My wife and I have insurance through employment. I haven't even read up on how it works.

Should our situation change, then we'll have to do a crash course and make a choice.

Maggie I am so sorry to hear you have fallen for the lies of Obama care. Remember what Pelosi said, pass the bill and read it later.

weird, can you quote where i said i knew all about it?
oh that right i didnt say that, its just another made up lie you posted. Yep that is funny indeed.

To be fair, even if no such thing as the ACA or Obamacare existed, he'd most likely still be covered under his parents insurance until he's 24 (still in school). That's not unusual at all. That Obamacare increases it until 26 is actually one of the better things in the otherwise seriously flawed bill.
 
Re: What will you do now that the ACA sign up has started?

What?????? Boy, do YOU have a misconception about Obamacare.

are not premiums going up? why do you think is the cause? it is because of freeloader that will be getting theirs off the backs of someone else you most think things are free that you can give people health care and no one will have to pay for it don't you. I thought you was smarter then that Maggie I expected that out of agent j not you

Allowing some one to stay on the parents plan longer the 18 cost the insurance companies more then they calculate. because they calculate the risk up to the age of 18 not 26 the longer someone is on a plan the higher the risk to require expansive treatment so when that happens that lost money is added to every one else's plan. its you that doesn't understand how it works not me

Your poll is fatally flawed. You do not "switch to ACA", you have the option of going to an exchange of shopping for insurance from insurance companies. When your whole poll is premised on a lie, that is kinda sad.

once again you just further proved how sverly uneducated and or dishonest you are about this topic. THANK YOU
why? because many Insurance companies allow coverage past 18 due to many reasons especially if they were a student.

keep talking though and tell people like maggie you thought they were smarter than that, it just further exposes how little you actually know about this topic because the only one proving that they arent smart on this topic is you and you did it TWICE now..

now make another post full of but but but buts, even though you were 100% wrong with your first post and now, you just further proved how little you know by doubling down on the severely topical uneducated post you made.

Cant wait to read your next one.

Maybe you can point out what part of her post is based on a lie. Bet you can't.

So don't participate, problem solved.

Doesn't it make more sense to point out and correct lies? I think it does.

and neither of them have employee provided health insurance? or did there company or firm they work for dropped their coverage or there private insurance was dropped like thousand of other Americans and forced onto the exchanges , I know they must have had insurance before Obama care so what happened

As always, depends how you do it and if they really are lies. Starting off by calling them lies is the first mistake. Point out with source the way it really works and go from there.

mabye you should ask my parents, because i have not spontaneously asked them what their insurance plans are.

My dad's health care coverage is linked to the company he works with, and i currently have coverage under CIGNA.
 
Re: What will you do now that the ACA sign up has started?

Well I am under 26 and a student, so yeah.
