EDITOR:

What’s all the panicked screaming and running in the other direction about? It’s people finding out the truth about what’s in Obamacare. It has more tentacles than an octopus that can reach into your personal life in more ways than you can ever imagine. It has bigger teeth than GodzilIa.

The “teeth” of enforcement of Obamacare is none other than the most feared governmental office, the IRS. Yes, that’s who is going to steal your funds when you don’t buy the mandatory Obamacare. Further, for those of you planning on “free” or “affordable” healthcare, you will note those words have magically disappeared from the healthcare.com Website, if you can actually get on it. Why are they telling us how many hits there are to the site and not how many actually bought Obamacare?

Call your federal legislators and clearly tell them to support defunding this monster. I realize for the likes of the Democratic members that is a wasted call, but the Republicans need to know how solidly 68 to 70 percent of us are behind them. Don’t let this monster out of its cage.

    Can you imagine being debited for this liberal failure on your return? Remember the IRS has been collecting bank acct. info on returns for years now and will not hesitate to debit your money. Once they take the money, good luck ever seeing it again even if by mistake. This will be on top of the new 50% to 300% increases in premiums with huge new deductibles and no "out of network" coverage. This is a failed liberal program already upon the failed rollout. Vote accordingly in 2014.

    Let's see.... I should call my Legislator to say "Take away my granddaughter's health care coverage, because she's now covered for her 'eczema' but I don't want her covered anymore".......... I should say, "I don't want my 25 year old College student to have access to health care."....... I should say "I don't want the $45 REDUCTION in my health care coverage."............ Because we all know Mr. McClintock has worked so hard to present Bills for some kind of REPLACEMENT ......... Is that right Eileen? We need to UNDO all that and McClintock will jump right in with something else???? Really??? .......... Shouldn't you be asking..... "Why is it so WRONG for people to have health care?"....... Why is that scaring you people so much?...... You haven't lost one single DIME ........ and you are fighting because Insurance companies can't block sick people from getting coverage????

    Are you serious Dink? You think the government can run healthcare better than the private markets? The government regulates insurance companies! I thought the liberals wanted the government out of their bedrooms? Now we all have the government all up in our bodies, our data, our bank accounts and IRS forms! And have you not noticed that more people are losing insurance than getting it? What happened to liberals compassion? Why would Americans be against this socialized health care scheme and economic takeover of 20% of our economy? Why indeed. Wake the hell up, Dink!

    Dink, if your car needed windshield wipers would you push it off a cliff? I have told you before, addressing the issues you speak of with 11.5 million words of new regulations is like using a hydrogen bomb as a flyswatter. Pre-existing conditions was used to bait the hook for people only know what they are told to believe. Have you ever noticed how no public sector union healthcare has any such thing as pre-existing conditions? Have you ever asked why? It sort of suggests that if the government didn't allow pre-existing denials they wouldn't exist would they? Being a useful idiot is a choice.

    "Congressional Democrats have reportedly given the president 72 hours, until Friday, to do something significant about the disastrous health care roll-out. Otherwise, they claim they are ready to join Congressional Republicans on an Obamacare fix." - HERE

    Cookie... Yup, I saw the video you posted and I had seen other videos like it of the "knockout game" before....It has increased 10 fold in popularity over the last several years...Women with babies, homeless, the elderly, disabled, are the most desired targets, but everybody's' fair game now....

    How does the government run Medicare? Pretty darn good. The ACA is socialized health care? No, that would be VA health care (they own the doctors and the hospitals and the clinics). Again, ACA socialized health care? No, it's Health Insurance Corporation Health care. A massive giveaway to them.

    Medicare fraud and abuse costs the taxpayers 10's of Billions (with a "B") every year. The same is true for Medicaid and the states. So it sounds like the government runs it like they run everything else. Other peoples money has very little value to those who buy votes with it. James did you see anything about the new staircase budgeted for Mule Creek? $30,000 per step. If you need me to I'll look it up and post it for you.

    Agreed, Eileen - I believe that the advent of Obamacare is what gave birth to the "Tea Party" movement. Concerned citizens voiced their opposition at town hall meetings everywhere, yet this nightmare was still forced down our throats. For the record, as the truth continues to emerge, Obamacare is clearly NOT about providing lower-cost medical coverage and healthcare. It's about establishing the maximum amount of govenrment control possible, over the American populace. This entire failed scheme is intentionally engineered to ultimately lead to single payer, government controlled health care. Any questions?

    One of the occomycare architects says "genetic lottery winners have been paying an artificially low price." Apply this dynamic logic to virtually anything and see where it leads you. This is the lie of leftism, government in all its wisdom can make life fair.

    Cookie, yes, there is fraud in Medicare (bad doctors and their ilk) and they are constantly being prosecuted. But, the question is efficiency. When I turned 62, a single visit to the local Social Security Office and that was it. Check has arrived like clockwork every month since then. I assume Phil had the same experience. Evelyn, of course, is only 25 but she will have the same no problem experience when she qualifies for Social Security. So, yes, the government is running this program with great efficiency. I know that irritates you, but you cannot be happy all the time. Ilk, Ilk, Ilk.

    ADDED: And, the same for Medicare which was even easier. On my 65th birthday my card arrived with absolutely no action on my part. Go to any doctor/specialist and I have certainly done that with zero problems over the years. Medicare and Social Security are efficiently run programs and a tribute to how it can be done by government.
