Question About ObamaCare

IF many US citizens are:

1. Having their existing health-insurance plans CANCELLED and replaced by “ObamaCare-compliant” plans that have HIGHER premiums, HIGHER deductibles, and narrower networks of doctors and hospitals

2. Being offered GOVERNMENT SUBSIDIES (paid by you, the average taxpayer) so they will be able to AFFORD the HIGH premiums

HOW CAN IT EVER BE CALLED THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT??

Reaching out to my followers…Obamacare stories?

Hello, everyone-
It’s my impression that many of you are young people. I have been reading over the past couple of weeks of sticker-shock experiences of many who are trying to sign up for health coverage (it’s no longer insurance, since it is mandated to cover routine expenses) on the new Obamacare exchanges; or are having their former individual policies cancelled by the carriers and replaced by higher-cost policies that cover more Obamacare-mandated services. [how many of you guys need maternity care or contraception?]
I would be honored if any of you who have had experiences with the exchanges or your own individual carriers would tell your stories here on my blog. I’d like the wider world to hear the truth about the effects the new health-care takeover by the federal government is having on American citizens. If you or people you know have been affected by Obamacare, let me know!
Thank you all very kindly.

The lightbulb wars begin…straitjacket?

Today, for the first time, two of the retail stores I visited (Target and Lowe’s), had NO incandescent light bulbs on their shelves. They did have fancy signs detailing which more-expensive light bulb varieties you will be permitted to purchase, now that your all-powerful Government in Washington, DC has determined that you, the citizen, are not competent enough to decide how to light your home. Welcome to the Brave New World of Government-Mandated Light Bulbs.  And, by the way, if you have lamps designed to work with three-way light bulbs, you can kiss them goodbye.  No three-way LED or CFL bulbs.

…and the Straitjacket continues to tighten…and your Liberty diminishes…

And my response?  NO, NO, 1,000 TIMES NO!
