My daughter just signed up, and it's $550 every two weeks.

How does Obama define affordable?

Obamacare, like far too many other programs, agencies, bureaucracies, operations and functions in general of the Federal government is a creaking, wasteful, bloated, inefficient and much too often completely ineffective **mess**!

It has gotten to the point where one is relieved and ecstatically surprised when some function of the government actually works as promised and for an amount of money that is even remotely justified.

We, the people, have some **serious** work to do in order to even start correcting the situation! But, there is no better place to start than by jettisoning Obamacare! If only to keep it from ruining whatever we have left of a country that some people (fewer every day) still still see as a beacon of freedom.

I just hope that everyone applying for this programs is aware that it is not an insurance policy at all, its an application for a personal loan from the state or federal insurance exchange for a loan from the state tax reserves. Insurance is a misnomer, its a scam targeting everyone inheritance assets to be "recovered" by the state tax commission on an undisclosed loan from the state government tax reserves.

You already have the insurance in payroll deductions to medicare and medicaid, this application is a loan document and power of attorney.

It nullifies and overturns all Wills, Estate Planning, Inheritance, Life Insurance, retirement investments as it all becomes the property of the state upon death or prosecution whenever the state decides to recovery paying for medicare and medicaid health care out of the state tax reserves. This application is a tax debt for all your life's accomplishments. It is an anti inheritance law that steals inheritance from family and beneficiaries.

Obama care is a 2 part program, it steals your medicare and medicaid deduction from the SSA and anything that can be left to inheritance.

@worf How old is your daughter, is she married and covering her husband also, and how many children does she have? That's not a bad premium for a policy that covers a high-income family. It may be more than what she has been paying, but it's better coverage when she needs it.

In any case, the rates are set by private insurance companies, which is what the conservative Heritage Foundation envisioned when they proposed it. It's the way they did it in Mitt Romney's Massachusetts. Liberals want a single-payer system like the VA and Medicare; don't blame us for the Obamacare compromise.

47 attempts to repeal healthcare reform.

47 failed attempts. Costing the US tax payer $50 million dollars.

Today, the GOP is trying for lucky 48.

Tell me, what is the alternative to the ACA? Does the GOP want to 'take America back' to this?

Some people are so misguided.

"Tell me, what is the alternative to the ACA?"

I see having NO ACA as a good alternative to having the ACA. Then we can get to work on fixing the healthcare system without ruining everything else in the process.

What we had before was not perfect. But it was a whole lot better and more affordable than the "Affordable" Care Act. When the big debates were happening, ALMOST EVERYONE agreed that the problem needed to be fixed, especially the part about pre-existing conditions. However, the liberal media and the Democrats would have everyone believe that the GOP never had an alternative, although the GOP did. Likewise, the liberal media and the Democrats would have everyone believe that anyone who opposed Obama WANTED people to NOT be covered.
