    Ah but is it AFFORDABLE coverage???? If you pay more than 9.5% of your pay for HC, then your plan is illegal and you
    can get better coverage on the exchanges...........

    Fat lot of good that did us. That's why we need to repeal and replace. Now.
    The rates went up becasue of CEO care. Obamcare is NOT LAW YET. Jan 1 -2014 it is.

    When you sign up for the ACA you will pay $30 to $100 month for insurance............

    Only thing needing replacement is all your lies.

    $30 to $100? Um, no. That's what you can get NOW for a high-deductible plan. The average rate now:

    The weighted average lowest monthly premiums for a 27-year-old in 36 states[14] will be (before tax credits): $129 for a catastrophic plan, $163 for a bronze plan, and $203 for a silver plan.

    aspe.hhs.gov/health/reports/2013/MarketplacePremiums/ib_marketplace_premiums.cfm

    Now these rates are lower than EXPECTED, but higher than what people pay now, and the savings came mainly from creating much smaller networks.

    Also, bad form to accuse another poster of lying. Even if you're positive of your facts vs. his, people generally don't go on posting boards to lie. What good does it do? We're not politicians, we're just people standing around a virtual water cooler discussing the issues of the day.

    Based on the pics, it doesn't look like they are doing so bad.

    Do you still get to call yourself a socialist after you turn 21 and are living off your rich parents,though? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Isn't that the definition of a socialist... somebody else pays for everything?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    My wife and I both have qualifying insurance through our jobs, so we don't intend to change anything.

    Re: What will you do now that the ACA sign up has started?

    I currently have no insurance and I will not be participating in the ACA nor paying my fine. I will pay my taxes just as I always have but will skip the additional ACA fine. I refuse to participate purely on principle and if they want to jail me for a small fine then that is their choice but I think it a foolish one. A few days in jail would cost the government much more then my measly fine would gain them.
