When Obamacare really starts to hurt people, I hope they remember this awful plan was rammed through by democrats only who were in total control with zero republican support. Not only that, the democrat party had to pay off it's own members to get enough support for it. It looks like democrat Nancy Pelosi was wrong when she said we need to pass Obamacare so we can find out what's in it, we should have waited.
The insurance industry faces an annual fee that starts at $8 billion in its first year, 2014 *********** Now who do you think is really going to pay for the 8 billion dollars the insurance industry is facing? Can you say lets raise the customers insurance rates?
There is no way any logical person would have voted to re-elect this moron.
You people have no idea what you've done.
Remember when Obama said it's not a tax? How could people be so naive. This is clearly the largest tax ever introduced, and it was right there for all to see. The best part about this is the tax revenue isn't even designated to health care. It can go anywhere team Obama see's fit. It's simple amazing to me that some people voted once for this unqualified fool, but those who voted to re-elect him after his first term are beyond hope.

thankbho: When you have nothing substantive to say, just post it three times! It would appear that a clear majority of the electorate firmly disagrees with your opinion, BTW. We do believe in his leadership, his vision, and his skills to get the job done or he wouldn't have swept the electoral college and finished with 4.5 million more popular votes than the aristocrat your side fronted. All of this could've been avoided had the obstructionist wing nuts accepted the reality that ONLY single-payer makes sense and is 3 decades overdue. Time we join virtually every other developed nation in treating health care as a right rather than a privilege - perhaps ACA is just the first step in that direction?
The Republicans never would have imposed taxes to pay for the reform of health care. They would have done what they did with the drug plan they tacked onto Medicare; don't pay for it. I am glad that there were major efforts made to cover reform costs and not tack all this onto the debt.
And this is just a "PARTIAL" list of new taxes and fees...This is just another fine example why the uninformed should not be allowed to vote! The only good thing about this BS...those taxes and fees are going to hit all those voters that believed obama and thought it was only going to affect the "rich!"
