I doubt even nancy has gotten around to reading the 2500 pages of garbage she helped shepherd through the house.

Heck, the folks trying to write the regulations to implement this monstrosity do not even know what will be required, let alone provided when the law becomes effective. And, since they have been so slow to write the regulations, few of the companies expected to provide new insurance policies have been able to write the new policies and calculate the costs and premiums needed to make them work.

To most people, this is a horribly mismanaged fiasco which will decrease quality and quantity of health care available, as well as increase the cost to consumers, as well as taxpayers. But, to the Obama worshipers, it is a great thing, as it will make people unhappy with the existing (new) health care system, and more susceptible to accept the lure of "single payer" government health care.

If you think health care is expensive or hard to get now, just wait until Obamacare is fully implemented, and it is "free." We are already seeing doctors retiring and refusing to accept medicare patients as caring for them costs more than the government pays. No business can survive giving away their services, not even doctors or hospitals.

The Powers that be are making no effort to educate the public about the new law because people will freak out when they see that each family regardless of their income will have to pay $14,000.00 in insurance premiums annually or pay a fine of $350 that will be deducted from their income tax refund and they'll be denied any health care because these families couldn't cough up the $14,000 premiums.

Confusion and uncertainly reign....and the real disaster hasn't even begun!

Did **anyone** actually believe that a Federal government that has been incapable of even **passing** a budget for **four years**, much less one that comes close to balancing, could possibly administer a bureaucratic monstrosity like Obamacare **without** confusion and uncertainty??

My real fear is what comes after the thing is actually engaged and "operational".

We haven't yet begun to feel the real pain from this mess.

Kellie, I'll bet you $14,000 you are wrong on all accounts! But I'll take the $350 option. Sounds cheap, and I'll bet I can get treated!

Obama will soon come out with the "Navigators". Thousands of them.

The reality of Obama care is about to hit. Good luck folks.
