Where is the "grant" money coming from? The push of course is to get as many signed up as possible so you can't end the program.

The boondoggle has just begun and in grand fashion handing out $750,000 just to help people sing up for benefits in 2013. I can't wait to see how much we hand out in "grants" for 2014.

"Free up $750,000" Where do these people think this money comes from? They decided to spend my money and tax me to replace it.

Proof positive that these Obamacare grants are simply a slush fund for Democrat Party interest groups.

What everybody should know the that Health & Human Services won't verify income levels from applicants because of "operational barriers" between HHS and the IRS until 2015. I can see a large amount of fraud in the very near future.

Its not enough that their health insurance will be highly subsidized or free, but we better make sure there is no inconvenience in having to do something to secure the handout. You can't make this stuff up fast enough!

Let me see... We're spending money to advertise a program we have no choice in joining and we can be fined if not participating. On top of that we are advertising harder with the people that are getting subsudies and will probably pay nothing.

The United States ranks 38th on health care, according to the World Health Organization. Right between Costa Rica and Slovinia. That's largely because we have so many uninsured. It's a disgrace, particularly for such a wealthy country.

"Free Healthcare" -- Oxymoron. The only problem is fewer and fewer of us actually will pay for more and more people to get "free" healthcare.
