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.
