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.

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.

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

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

I know of several business owners who have been commanded to pay for abortions as part of their employee medical insurance plans. Believe me, they know all about the ObamaCare benefits!

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.
