Obama: Most People Experiencing ACA Benefits, ĎEven if They Donít Know Ití
Free Beacon ^ | 4/30/13 | staff

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 don’t 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. It’s gone through Supreme Court tests. It’s 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, they’re already experiencing most of the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, even if they don’t know it. Their insurance is more secure. Insurance companies can’t drop them for bad reasons. Their kids are able to stay on their health insurance until they’re 26 years old. They’re 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 thing’s already happened. And their only impact is their insurance is stronger, better, more secure than it was before.

Paying more for your health insurance lately? Well, that's part of your 'ACA benefits'.

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.

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.

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

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”?

My Mom’s Medicare supplemental insurance went up about 25% in the last two years. Thanks, 0bummer.
