Skip to comments.Obama: Most People Experiencing ACA Benefits, ĎEven if They Donít Know Ití
Posted on 04/30/2013 7:41:03 PM PDT by Nachum
President Obama said Tuesday that Americans who already have health insurance are already experiencing most of the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, even if they dont know it, responding to a question about what Sen. Max Baucus (D., Mt.) has dubbed the train wreck of implementing Obamacare:
OBAMA: The Affordable Care Act, Obamacare, has now been with us for three years. Its gone through Supreme Court tests. Its gone through efforts to repeal. A huge chunk of it has already been implemented and for the 85, 90 percent of Americans who already have health insurance, theyre already experiencing most of the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, even if they dont know it. Their insurance is more secure. Insurance companies cant drop them for bad reasons. Their kids are able to stay on their health insurance until theyre 26 years old. Theyre getting free preventive care. There are a whole host of benefits. For the average American out there, the 85, 90 percent of Americans who already have health insurance, this things already happened. And their only impact is their insurance is stronger, better, more secure than it was before.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I”m trying to figure out how Obama can cal rapidly skyrocketing costs, including premiums, is a “benefit”...
I guess it is somewhat akin to Microsoft labeling bugs as “features”...
I think he is right. It has hardly begun to be implemented, and pretty much any possible benefit we could have gotten we’ve already gotten. There are no more benefits.
Because of ACA my wife’s medication has increased over 300 percent and it was already vary expensive. Gee, thank you Obama.
We’re so stupid. Too dumb to comprehend how much King Putt is doing for us.
I’m still waiting for Obumbo to point out even one of vast quantity of lies he accused the NRA of telling during the recent gun-grab campaign.
I pay less but my copays went up 100%. whadda deal!
Eff ewe for saying that, Berry.
My son went from a 250 dollar deductible to a $2,000 dollar deductible, such a deal.
Experiencing Obamacare benefits? Indeed I am!
Most of my doctors have already quit private practice and sold themselves to big hospital conglomerates, my employer dropped my insurance plan, and I was forced to go onto a lesser plan.
And I know this is just a start. It’s only going to get worse. Much worse.
I was wondering if the only reason for Obama press conference today was Jason Collins and the rest was just filler
Well, those are benefits...for Dear Leader and his buddies.
I think the failure of the Nazi Gun Control thing sent Barry back to his dealer.
But what about all those people without insurance this law was supposed to help? Unless they qualified for and could afford PCIP they're STILL without coverage. But this bill was never about them anyway, so never mind.
I think I might have prenatal care covered now. I’m a guy, so I’ll never use it, but I guess that’s a new benefit. A benefit to go with my ever-increasing premiums.
He just pulls numbers out of his butt. Remember that “90% of Americans support tougher gun laws”?
Now there's an image I didn't need right after dinner ;)
My Mom’s Medicare supplemental insurance went up about 25% in the last two years. Thanks, 0bummer.
Yeppers. I’m paying more!
The benefits are just hidden really well.
We got to experience it...our daughter had reconstructive surgery on both feet. We had the surgeries done one foot at a time. One surgery in June 2012 and the next in February 2013. The one in February cost us twice what the first one did. The first surgery was longer with a longer convalescent time because the doctor did the worst foot first, yet it cost less. Notice though the 2nd was in 2013 when many more parts of ACA was put in place. Thankfully for now I have good insurance. But not surprisingly my deductible is going up in October by $200 when I am to recommit to the package.
Yes, a big part of this was forcing men to subsidize all of those “strong, independent” womyn and their bastard babies. “Julia” is a reality. My own insurance will be jumping 37% this year, on a high deductible HSA plan. Thanks, leftist vermin. I’m going to go out of my way to punish identifiable leftists from now on. Just grind them down, even if only by making their lives as unnecessarily stressful as I am able. Bastards!
kind of like how we’re seeing the benefits of the economic recovery and we just don’t know it. sarc.
Yes, higher premiums for insurance coverage you don’t want is a benefit like taxes are a contribution. It takes a liberal democrat to bring us this Orwellian language!
just had an echo cardiogram at a hospital that also has my doc’s clinic. All this electronic files shared between them stuff is horse sh&t. Their system has bugs because of implementing Federally mandated rules before they are capable.
They lost my test results in the ozone but still charged me $1500(because I have such a high deductible) and don’t want to refund it. Some how they were able to find my money.
ObamaCare will be the final cause of armed revolution when the masses wake up.
So less work hours for everyone in their current job starting soon. Yippee!!!!!
Thank you Zero.
Now people will have to get a second job to make the same amount they do with their current job.
I’m paying more, a lot more, for fewer choices and reduced availability. If these are the “benefits” I’d like a lot less “help” with my health insurance. A lot less.
O and his minions live on some other planet entirely
Talked with a guy this weekend who HATES liberals and got into a fight with one after he emailed out the photo of Obama kissing Chavez. He ended up telling the liberal he would taser him if necessary. LOL
He has a personally signed photo from Reagan addressed to him in his office.
just more of the usual total b.s. that foams from his mouth.
Thank you, Hussein.
Just the likelihood of your becoming president created a frozen economy that still hasn't recovered.
My retirement savings income supplementing Social Security lost 60%, AND your official "cost of living" does not include the basic necessities of life. And to add insult to injury, I am now supporting millions of additional indolent parasites.
. All the while your unbridled spending and printing of funny money now makes what little I had worth substantially less.
Thanks a lot!
Oh yeah, the wonderful benefits of YOUR "Affordable Care Act.
Oh yes, add to all of the above, you added billions of welfare $ and called in part of Social Security, except the recipients never contributed a cent, and don't even pay income taxes!
Thanks a lot!
Really enjoying the collective benefit of going broke.
Just call me an ingrate!
Yes, I can see liberal elites at their cocktail parties congratulating each other over the success of Obamacare and the economic recovery, as they eat their caviar and drink their expensive wine.
0bama: “I’m doing a great job - you people are just too stupid to realize it!”
Go PISS UP A ROPE Obunga!
I know huge numbers of people whose medical insurance rates have risen more than ever before. They also know about the ObamaCare benefits.
I know several people who are out of work and unable to find a job given the additional cost of hiring them. They think about ObaaCare's benefits daily as they look for something that is no longer there. ObamaCare is evil, which is no surprise given the nature of Obama, Pelosi, and Reid.
