    Why don't the media please tell the people the truth? Is Joe Madison and Chris Matthews, Ed Shultz the only ones that not afraid to tell us what they need to know? How please tell people that LBJ,BC tried to pass this bill but no one like those presidents either. This is not about Obama healthcare.
    This is called Affordable HealthCare Act not Obama. He just got the bill pass while he is in office. Please, Please explain this true to the mass people, I'm
    begging you please so that they will know that some of us have been using this for the late five years. It's just like Social Security, Medicare etc. Inform the people please.
    Thanks

    I agree with you Nanababies5, this is a tool for so many people who don't have medical coverage get a chance to go to hospitals without fear of not being seen without insurance or paying out your eyeballs to get help. Most people only know about the Affordable Health Care Act through the media and depending on what station you watch, you may have recieved bogus information. I came from a state (Massachusettes) that had the same policies that a lot of states still have in terms of pre-existing conditions and no insurance, no service. But through their new health care programs, they have the highest percentage of people covered medically in the nation and they haven't missed a beat. Their small businesses havent gone out of business because of it, hospitals haven't closed because of it and Insurance companies are still making money inspite of it. Well the Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare) is some people so painfully like to call it, is a carbon copy of this same Health care system just on a broader scale. So people please listen to me and Nana babies5, please enroll, don't let other people negativity cheat you out the health care you desereve as an american.

    The problem is that the Act won't stand by itself unless everyone enrolls, the exemptions granted by this Administration is not helping their cause about this Act being fair, and without the younger people of this Nation signing up, the program will collapse under its own weight. The idea of everyone having healthcare was a great idea but as with everything else that Washington gets its hands on, they screw it up and then start to point fingers at whom to blame without looking in the mirror.

    Hey every one.

    Did you know that Canada does not have free health care? Nothing comes free. Did you know most of Canada hospitals are for non profit. Did you know US hospitals are for profit. To make health care work in the US, First hospitals for non profit have to open. Your liquor would have to take and increase.Liquor stores and beer stores are run by the government. Not food store chains. And business people. They are run kinda of like a post office would be. Such a job security. So would gas, cigs , Did you know canada trys hard to get the welfare people off off welfare. They supply child care for single mothers so they can work. Did you also know they have casinos for non profit through out Canada. You see all canadians pay for health care. I really is not free. Did you every province is different. In Ontario as I last remember. All employers had to pay a certain percent of wall wages paid out to employees to the feds to make sure everyone was covered , because there are lazy people every where whom think the world owes them a living. Most hospitals have ward rooms , semi Private and private. and or suite. Depending on the extra insurance you recieve from your employer would let you know which room you would stay in. There are no deductibles. The hospitals are not fancy like US. Canadian Hospitals use their space well.. They charge an arm and a leg for parking.

    So in the US what do you want to give up for health insurance . Health insurance is not free.. I feel your president is going about this the wrong way.

    I find here in the US the majority of people are prejudice. Weather it is skin color , political beliefs, lower class versus middle and upper class. There is a way to get along with the different parties getting along we listen to everyone's ideas. Think about it and put the most common components together.. I really feel like the insurance company's are like a lawyer between two people having a divorce , helping the two people to hate each other more than when they met they're lawyers.

    nanababies and rookie -- Welcome. You're new to this website, and as you might notice, we have been having lively discussions about the Affordable Care Act and the Bananarepublicans effort to shutdown the government. But on your points of discussion regarding the ACA, I agree with both of you. There are some on this website that think gloom and doom about the ACA, but I'm the opposite. I believe that people who take the time to educate themselves on the aspects of the ACA that affect them, will get on board. There are many anecdotal examples out there of people rejoicing about getting affordable healthcare for the first time in many cases.

    Here's a link that I have offered up to many that will help you sell the ACA to your friends and relatives.
