    Great song. How do you get it air time. That one should go viral. They really left out so much though. I guess a half hour song wouldn't get a big audience. I am worried about whether I will be covered by my insurance after Obama care. The talking heads that are Obama's propaganda arm were trying to push grandma of the bridge saying that we need to decide who to cover and who not to cover. I am not a democrat. I am a libertarian. It seems we are headed toward were the lite and those whose opinions they agree with are the only ones who are covered. When the government starts to decide whether you meet their criterion for medical treatment we are toast. That slippery slope is what we all feared with Obamacare. Obama's cronies are already talking about not covering the elderly and the sickly. They are the ones that need the coverage. The healthy can afford to pay for the minimal health care they need.

    Default Is Obamacare DOA?

    Is Obamacare DOA?
    Last week, I explained that the federal government was working overtime to hide the ineffectiveness of the Obamacare insurance exchanges. But the truth is getting out.

    Lately, some have taken to calling the program “glitchcare,” in light of its myriad technological problems. The situation is so bad that even the most damning reports haven’t captured the severity of the health exchange problems.

    And now that reporting has begun, we see that Americans aren’t embracing Obamacare as the president envisioned. It’s hard to argue with the facts, and the exchange websites simply aren’t converting visitors into enrollments. Just look at Maryland, where the exchange site has seen 170,000 unique visitors…and recorded only 326 enrollments.

    Yet that’s not even the worst of it. You see, there’s a dire situation that the administration is dutifully ignoring: The possibility that thousands of Americans think they’ve signed up for insurance through the online exchange…but in fact haven’t, because the botched system failed to collect enough information to underwrite the policy.
    CNBC has reported that, “As few as 1 in 100 applications on the federal exchange contain enough information to enroll the applicant in a plan.” That’s just 1%!

    This is a disaster in the making for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). There’s a chance that all healthcare applicants will have to be contacted to manually verify their information…and HHS doesn’t have the manpower, expertise or infrastructure for such a process.

    Default Obamacare is the final nail in the coffin for middle class

    Obamacare is the final nail in the coffin for the disappearing American middle class

    (NaturalNews) If you are still fortunate enough to call yourself "middle class," enjoy it while you can, because thanks to the ravages of Obamacare, you're liable to lose that status at some point in the future.

    Since Oct. 1, when the individual mandate kicked in and health insurance plans were required to include minimal coverage standards, millions of Americans have lost their insurance or will be losing it soon when policies come up for renewal, because their plans do not meet the mandates of the imperial ruling class.

    Now granted, the middle class has been shrinking for some time. The damage to the middle class has truly been bipartisan; middle class families have been disappearing under both Republican and Democratic administrations. But this is mostly due to the fact that the massive federal bureaucracy is infested with career statists who impose rules and regulations on the American public and American industry relentlessly (these are increasing at a massive pace under Obama). And each of these rules carries a price for compliance - a price which must be paid by us.

    Economic life support

    The number of working-age Americans who either can't find a job or are underemployed has increased by millions. U.S. median household income has fallen consistently for years. The poverty rate is increasing. And while crony corporations and Wall Street are hopping in bed with the leviathan federal government, the rest of us are taking it in the shorts, working harder and longer to make ends meet.

    And now, we've just been slapped with Obamacare, a horrible law that has already begun chipping away at what's left of the middle class. As I said, millions have lost their health plans - plans that President Obama promised repeatedly that they could keep.

    The law is also causing dramatic rises in premiums for many people (even though Obama promised plans for American families would fall by $2,500 under Obamacare). The reason for this is simple: Obamacare's minimum coverage mandates much more than most Americans had otherwise chosen (and these requirements include ridiculous coverage mandates like forcing young men to buy maternity coverage). So, as coverage requirements grow, so do premiums.

    Default Under Obamacare, states can seize assets to recoup Medicaid expenses

    Obamacare is just full of surprises, as more Americans are beginning to realize now that the law has been fully implemented.
    Read the fine-print.

    If you've followed news about the Affordable Care Act, you know that the law dramatically expands Medicaid coverage by raising the qualifying income level to include tens of millions of Americans who, before Obamacare, made too much money to qualify; this is part of the massive wealth-transfer aspect of the law.

    It turns out that there is much more wealth transfer taking place than previously believed, as reported by Fox News:

    Tom Gialanella, 56, was shocked to find out he qualified for Medicaid under ObamaCare. The Bothell, Wash., resident had been able to retire early years ago, owns his home outright in a pricey Seattle suburb and is living off his investments.
    He wanted no part of the government's so-called free health care. "It's supposed to be a safety net program. It's not supposed to be for someone who has assets who can pay the bill," he said.

    And after reading the fine print, Gialanella had another reason to flee Medicaid -- the potential death debt.

    The roll-out is a nightmare. The cost is expensive. Now they report that there is a hardship clause that would allow someone not to buy a health care plan without penalty. Why wouldn't thousands of people opt for the hardship exemption rather then pay the high prices? The only reason would be if people felt the price was worth it. Many people might just trust their luck, and others might choose to self-insure. The Supreme Court says it is a tax. History shows that people will only put up with so much tax. Then they revolt. I don't know what form it would take. If the administration pushes too hard, they may get more than they bargained.
