anyone with a TV or Radio or Computer understands ALL of America is a loser because of Obamacare - the grand socialist experiment now burning and smoldering across the nation. To date 6 million have lost their insurance and have been left in limbo and that number grows by the month. Add to this the tidal wave of cancellations soon to come when the employer mandate kicks in and cancellations start there. Add to this the sorry and unnecessary mess millions find themselves in now having their work hours cut to part time. Add to this the millions who have LOST their jobs because of Obamacare. Remember the oft repeated LIE by Barack for the past 3 years "If you like your insurance you can keep it ...period". Yes how could we forget that lie. Nancy Pelosi says it wasn't a lie and she still to date has posted on her web site "If you like your insurance you can keep it". No surprise here. Conservatives warned 4 years ago this ugly day would come .... and we were correct. Sadly correct. Rush was right 4 years ago - "I hope his policies fail". If only we could rewind time.

With the employer mandate, if their old insurance gets dropped they're still going to have new insurance because of the mandate.

"Add to this the millions who have LOST their jobs because of Obamacare."

That's a lie.

re:atl134

Sorry man but again you need to pay more attention. First off when the employer mandate kicks in November 2014 employers WILL be faced with the wave of taxation, penalties and mandates of Obamacare that individuals are now facing - those that purchased insurance on the open market. That is a FACT. Already projections are in the tens of millions who will get cancellation letters (especially small business) or large business having to jack up their rates for insurance. You say people will still have insurance because of the mandate.. nope. Small business all over America has already signaled that they will NOT be able to afford the HUGE cost increases due to Obamacare and they will simply DROP employee coverage putting their employees in the same boat the nearly 6 million who have lost their insurance to date are in. They will be forced to go to the exchanges where they will find the same thing people today are finding...insurance 2-3 times higher. As far as job losses... it is a FACT that MANY business's reported in 2013 layoffs due to Obamacare not to mention the reduction in work hours. Your dem's are panicking!

The next wave to hit will be the thousands of doctors who have been told they can no longer participate in health care networks. This breaks Obama's 2nd promise about being able to keep your doctor if you like them, and it will make it much harder to receive health care.
