Obama has done nothing except try to become a dictator.   Bush put to much power in th hands of the government with the patriat act, and obama took what buh started and put the government in charge of your health.
He didn't exactly quickly reverse any of the extra powers Bush put into place now did he?

Go to a broken website that couldn't work after three years and $650 whatever million was dumped into it, usually to find out how the penalties work and how to avoid them, realize you qualify for Medicaid, and then that you don't have to pay any Obamacare premiums after all! What a deal!   It's "free", and as every good statist knows, "free" means affordable!  
When I was playing with the website, it had no problems sending me to the Medicare site to sign up. I was using a family of 4 with about a $50K income, and it sent me to Medicare. I never thought of 50K as Poverty??

both incorrect. The contracts were doled out last year. The dollars above are for 10 years.

As long as you define "not affected" as meaning that their Premiums, Deductables, Choice of Plans available, might all change (But then they might have changed anyway...), and that the new CadillacTax will be charged to them.

This year I had fewer Company offered plans (Basically only High Deductable Plans anymore), partly due to standards changing so that previous plans no longer exist. That affected me.

Tens of millions of Union workers, and other highly paid workers, with good insurance are going to be affected when there is a 40% tax placed on the value of their insurance.

That's Medicare bro, not Medicaid.   But the family of four and the $50k number got me thinking...could that be considered poverty in Portland?  I understand that prices there are much higher than average.

What?  Do you have a source for the start of Obamacare you can share?  

I do.
http://www.whitehous...thcare-overview

Since March 23, 2010.  It's time to start calling it four years, not three.

And they contracted out for 10 years with a bloated, inoperable and vulnerable website.  How intelligent is that?

And that's another thing, why isn't a lot of this programming open source code?

Most of the code is open source.  The contractors are being hit with copyright violations because they did not cite the company in the "notes" of the code...the only stipulation to use it for free.

Whose premiums are going to go up to help pay for all those people whom the insurance companies can't say no to anymore.  As I said it affects everyone.
