ST. PAUL, Minn. — When Jennifer Slafter first ran the numbers, she thought the new federal health care law would cost her family an extra $171 a month for an insurance plan with a higher deductible. So the 40-year-old stay-home mom from southeastern Minnesota felt compelled to go public with her frustration.

There may be a small percentage of people who benefit from this OBAMACARE, but the fact is that MILLIONS OF AMERICANS will get screwed financially, will NOT BE ABLE TO KEEP THEIR PLANS AND DOCTORS AS PROMISED BY OBAMA over and over, and the number of doctors that will no longer provide services for minimal payments will rise and those are FACTS. Oh and Obama and his fight against success? Defend 85% of the tax revenue for his signature legislation coming from 5% of Americans. Real fair, right deep thinkers?

Well, let's review: Millions have lost and more will lose their current plans due to Obamacare requirements. Millions more are finding out that they will be paying much higher premiums AND getting much higher deductibles due to Obamacare. Next year when the employer mandate kicks in, millions more will see their employers cancel their coverage, and be thrown onto the exchanges. This is not to mention that millions of Americans will lose their current doctors and have to change due to Obamacare. And the author of this story thinks this all this is 'spin'?? Give me a break.

"Slafter and her husband, a plumber, plan to shift their 7- and 14-year-old daughters onto Medicaid, rather than keeping the whole family on one coverage plan. ....."

How the HELL does this happen! A family can sign up for healthcare but push their minor age kids to Medicare? Star Trib please expand on this??

The liberal spin on a terrible website, etc. The fact is I may get some better coverage but I am paying 80 more then I was before and this is not affordable whatsoever for me. I am spending a good 10 percent of my salary on this. But the liberal media will always spin it as great. This will bankrupt the country.
