    What will you do now that the ACA sign up has started?[W:44]

    As of today, Oct 1st, the Affordable Healthcare Act signup starts via the web at healthcare.gov.

    What are you planning to do? Take the poll. Note: If you pick "Other" please explain your general circumstance that doesn't fit in the 4 choices provided.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I will not participate in a train wreck that will destroy this great nation. I will pay out of pocket.
    all this train wreck will do is put us on the same path that is bankrupting all those socialist nations.
    I will refuse to pay the fine/tax and hope to be the first to get thrown in jail refusing to do so

    I have Insurance and I am keeping it and here is the notice my company sent out.

    "Under the Affordable Care Act (Healthcare Reform), XXXXXXXX is required by the U.S. Department of Labor to provide all employees with the enclosed notice. As you read the notice, keep in mind that any individual who has access to “affordable coverage” (as defined by the regulations) is not eligible for subsidized coverage through a state health insurance marketplace. XXXXXXX’s health plan meets the definition of “affordable coverage”, and therefore any XXXXXXX employee who is eligible to participate in our health plan would not qualify for subsidized coverage through the exchange.

    XXXXXXXX employees who are not eligible for our health coverage (for example due to part-time status) may want to explore individual health insurance options available through a public exchange as they may qualify for federal subsidies described in the notice.
    Contact information about each state’s health insurance marketplace can be found online at: www.healthcare.gov.

    The Healthcare Exchange (marketplace) plans will become effective January 1, 2014 and information about the exchange plan options will be available online starting October 1, 2013 at www.healthcare.gov."


    So theres nothing for me to do. My company was already offering good insurance, well, at lease insurance that qualifies. Personally every insurance i have had for the last 15 years as progressively got worse, some in small steps, some in large steps.

    This is why healthcare was broke and needed fixing. Will this be the fix? im sure it wont, it will need tweaked and parts of it redone as we go but its a start and Id much rather do this than nothing.

    As of today, nothing. My wife and I have insurance through employment. I haven't even read up on how it works.

    Should our situation change, then we'll have to do a crash course and make a choice.
    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.

    Maggie I am so sorry to hear you have fallen for the lies of Obama care. Remember what Pelosi said, pass the bill and read it later.
