Back in 2013 we conducted an experiment on our show. We went out on the street and asked people which was better: Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act. Obamacare is of course just a nickname for the Affordable Care Act. They're the same thing.

The Truth About Obamacare Will Shock You. This is a story worth hearing. ready okay i want to talk a little bit about what I'm hearing in the media and everything about the Affordable Care I better known as Obamacare and experience that I've had with our the insurance company over my lifetime at the beginning of I used to work for a corporation where the corporation subsidized insurance so i didn't have to worry about insurance that bad and so the other three jobs that i had they always carry insurance but with insurance if you ever got laid off then are you would end up with Cobra Cobra would double in size and and and in the cost of it and so you can't double the cost with you are laid off and there is the time when you're not making as much money so most people would end up losing their insurance and if something happened did if it was something bad then almost certain they would get up in bankruptcy and everything else because they couldn't afford to pay for these doctor bills are the Affordable Care I came along and so it actually helped make insurance more affordable for everybody which are if if you was employed through your employer and you retired or something like that or you worked at a place that didn't have insurance then if you was goin on the market to try to get insurance for yourself i experienced it was about twelve to sixteen hundred dollars are like a month for a individual to get insurance and most people cannot afford that and so you would end up going with God insurance and insurance was one of the biggest reason people file for bankruptcy in the middle class was because something happened didn't have insurance and then Affordable Care I came along which was a hard fight because you know uh Hillary try to get a health care bill through and we couldn't get anything done because like you say that the insurance companies and everything love the way it was because they was making all this money and and now they finally got something in there with Obamacare and people are saying that oh it's costing us are too much money and it's going to bankrupt the country but what do you think happens when all the certain people go to the hospital and they can't afford to pay for their insurance and they get subpar care and all the sudden who do you think pick up the tab for that when they can't afford to pay which is the government so the government it is gonna pay anyway and they trying to get ahead of this whole thing and trying to say okay uh let's do some preventative care and try to stop you know people from getting really sick where the government end up having to put all this money into it they said oh we want to insure everybody to unless you make sure that everybody have a little bit of uh uh uh uh money into this fight so if whatever you can pay we're going to try to make sure that you have insurance and I keep hearing all this stuff about a Affordable Care Act is the worst thing is you know that that that Obama ever did but like I say I'm on the Affordable Care I and i love it and I mean like you said is they talk about higher prices keep going up and this and that type of thing a lot of prices going up in states and stuff that did not go on the exchanges in different things like that and so there's a lot of our states that don't have that many of that much competition competition in it and so it's are pulling everything down for those states and and like you said is the Affordable Care can be all put made a lot better but it done got caught up into this politics stuff where they don't want obama to do anything positive so they don't want to refine it or to try to make it better or to work with it or to change it but like you said is I definitely don't want to go back to the way they used to be and Obamacare is the best thing that ever happened to us because one of the things is people used to have insurance and insurance that they had was subpar some of them had a top end limit where they are they thought they had good insurance and it was something big happens they end up and find out that they wasn't insured and that's why a lot of people couldn't understand why is when it was Obama said you can keep your your your same insurance but you're same insurance sometimes was subpar it didn't have all the things to protect you insurance and you know how sometimes we don't read the fine print of the insurance companies and so the insurance company make us think that we got good insurance and the next thing you know when something happened we find out we got nothing and so the biggest thing that Obamacare did was they made it where like you said is there's no top end limit you know where if all of a sudden you got into a a car wreck or something like that and Watch More Crochet Geek http://www.youtube.com/c/CrochetGeek TRICH VLOGS http://www.youtube.com/c/TRICHVLOGS

Hint: single-payer won’t fix America’s health care spending. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Americans don't drive up the price by consuming more health care. They don't visit the doctor more than other developed countries: http://international.commonwealthfund.org/stats/annual_physician_visits/ But the price we pay for that visit - for a procedure - it costs way more: http://static1.squarespace.com/static/518a3cfee4b0a77d03a62c98/t/57d3ca9529687f1a257e9e26/1473497751062/2015+Comparative+Price+Report+09.09.16.pdf The price you pay for the same procedure, at the same hospital, may vary enormously depending on what kind of health insurance you have in the US. That's because of bargaining power. Government programs, like Medicare and Medicaid, can ask for a lower price from health service providers because they have the numbers: the hospital has to comply or else risk losing the business of millions of Americans. There are dozens of private health insurance providers in the United States and they each need to bargain for prices with hospitals and doctors. The numbers of people private insurances represent are much less than the government programs. That means a higher price when you go to the doctor or fill a prescription. Uninsured individuals have the least bargaining power. Without any insurance, you will pay the highest price.

Weeks after the House voted in favor of the American Health Care Act, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office revealed its scoring of the Obamacare replacement bill. Under the Republican plan, repealing the Affordable Care Act could result in 23 million people losing health care coverage over the next decade and older Americans would have to pay significantly more for insurance.

After debating into early hours of the morning, Senator McCain shocked his colleagues by voting "no" on the "skinny repeal" of Obamacare. CNN's Brooke Baldwin points out the various reactions across the room.

"Most physicians can't afford to accept Medicaid" patients, says Dr. Alieta Eck, a primary-care physician based in Piscataway, New Jersey. "If you're getting paid about $17 per visit, it won't be long before you can't pay your staff or pay your rent." Medicaid is the nation's health care system for the poor. It's funded jointly by the federal government and the states. Medicaid is either the first- or second-largest budget item in all 50 states and the program is slated for a massive expansion under President Obama's health-care reform law. Despite the program's huge and growing overall cost, reimbursements to medical providers are so low that many practices refuse to accept Medicaid patients, causing long waiting periods for treatment. Eck and her husband, Dr. John Eck, are the founders of Zarephath Health Center, a free health care clinic in Somerset, New Jersey, where they each volunteers six hours per week taking care of poor patients. While the Ecks don't accept Medicaid in their private practice, some of the patients that show up at their free clinic are Medicaid recipients who can't find a regular doctor. "The hardest thing for a Medicaid patient to do is get a doctor's appointment," says Avik Roy, who writes a health care blog at Forbes.com and is a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute. One consequence is that Medicaid recipients show up at emergency rooms at nearly double the rate of the privately insured, often with accute problems that could have been addressed earlier in a doctor's office. They're also more likely than both the privately insured and the uninsured to have late-stage cancer at first diagnosis. After they've been diagnosed, it's also difficult for Medicaid patients to find qualified surgeons who will treat them. A University of Virginia study found that Medicaid patients were about twice as likely as the privately insured to die in the hospital after surgery. Even the uninsured were more likely to make it out of the hospital alive than Medicaid patients. Despite the program's failings, in 2014 Obamacare will add millions of new patients to the program's rolls. "All too often, people who claim to care for the poor say, 'I'm going to give you a card that says you have health insurance and my work is done,'" says Roy. "But the hard part is making sure that person gets treated." Obamacare was designed to expand Medicaid by about 17 million enrollees by 2021, but it likely won't meet that goal because the Supreme Court ruled that states don't have to participate in this component of the law in order to keep current levels of funding. So far, the governors of 19 states have come out against expanding Medicaid in their states. So what's the best way to provide quality health care to the poor without spending more money that we don't have? Roy says the federal government should take the same money it spends on Medicaid and block grant it to the states so they can experiment with health care plans in which the patient is in control. "Let them spend it on the doctor of their choice," says Roy. "Let people take the money and get the bureaucrats out of the way, and you'll find there's suddenly a lot more efficiency in the way people actually get health care." Eck believes charity care could be a big part of the solution, if only the government made it easier for doctors to volunteer their time. She has worked with state Sen. Robert Singer (R-N.J.), who has co-sponsored a bill in New Jersey that would allow the state to cover physicians for malpractice in their private practices as a way of compensating them for volunteering. The bill is currently awaiting consideration by the state senate's health care committee. "Every doctor I talk to says, 'I would do that in a heartbeat,'" says Eck. In the meantime, when Obamacare takes full effect next year, charitable clinics like Eck's will be more essential than ever to pick up the slack for a social safety net that's already not working. "I've been doing this for nine years," says Eck, "and I can honestly say that I come away feeling good that I was able to make a difference." About 5 minutes.

Do you qualify for Obamacare? Under the Affordable Care Act—Obamacare--if you want to enroll in a health plan outside of the annual Open Enrollment Period, you must have what's called a qualifying event -- which is sometimes also referred to as a qualifying life event. An example of a qualifying event would be: 1. Permanently moving to a new city or state 2. Certain changes in your income 3. Changes in your family due to marriage, divorce, birth of a child, or loss of a loved-one 4. Loss of existing health coverage because of a job change or job loss 5. Loss of eligibility for Medicaid or CHIP, 6. Or, expiration of your COBRA benefits If you have a qualifying event, in most cases that triggers a 60-day Special Enrollment Period when you can change your existing coverage or apply for a new plan. If you have a qualifying event that triggers a special enrollment period, eHealth recommends that you have documentation of your qualifying life event with you when you apply for new coverage -- whether you apply online or offline. In some instances, documentation forms may not be necessary, but it's better to have them in case your new insurance company needs them. You should also be aware that you're not likely to qualify for a Special Enrollment Period if you voluntarily cancel your coverage or lose it because you didn't pay your bills. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Follow eHealth at: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/eHealth Twitter: https://twitter.com/eHealth _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Get quotes and compare plans now at: https://www.ehealth.com

06/14/2010 - http://www.RonPaul.com Obamacare Is Bad For Your Health by Ron Paul The administration's terrible health care reform bill is now law. But the debate over how and whether the federal government should be involved in providing health care services is not over. It is not too late for America to correct its course and stop the march toward a government-run single-payer health care system. Polls show that a large majority of Americans don't want Obamacare. Congress should seize the opportunity to repeal the very worst aspect of this new legislation, namely the mandate that forces every American either to purchase health insurance or face an IRS penalty. This mandate represents nothing more than an unconstitutional, historically unprecedented gift to the insurance industry. I introduced the End the Mandate Act, HR 4995, expressly to prevent the administration from ever putting this provision into effect. Instead of mandating the same failed entitlement health care schemes that are bankrupting Europe, Congress should fundamentally reexamine the case for free-market health care. Our current model, based on employer-provided health insurance, did not arise based on market preferences. On the contrary, it makes no sense to couple health insurance with employment. But federal wage and price controls instituted during World War II left employers with no alternative to attract workers in a tight labor market other than offering extra benefits such as health insurance and pensions. Over time these non-wage benefits became the norm, especially since employers could deduct the cost of health insurance premiums from their income taxes while individuals could not. The perverse consequence is that employees lose both their paychecks and their health insurance when they lose their job. As reliance on third party health insurance grew, patients became detached from the true cost of their doctor visits. In the 1970s the Nixon administration, along with the late Senator Edward Kennedy, championed the cause of health maintenance organizations. Congress accepted the faulty premise that HMOs would reduce the cost through centralized management of patients, when in fact the opposite was true. More bureaucracy would only lead to higher cost, less accountability, and worse patient care. In recent years Congress has only intensified the problem with more laws and more regulation, especially with the disastrous Medicare prescription drug benefit. The drug benefit was another example of naked patronage to a politically connected industry and it exponentially worsened the federal government's balance sheet. Obamacare will be the last nail in the coffin of our bankrupt entitlement system. More laws are not the answer. Instead, we need to allow a market system to operate that reflects consumer choices while rationally pricing services. In a market system patients likely would pay cash for basic services while maintaining relatively high deductible catastrophic insurance for serious illnesses and accidents. The cost of most routine medical care would drop if the patient paid the bill on the spot, especially as doctors no longer needed to employ large staffs solely to deal with insurance and billing. Let me repeat: we need a system where patients pay cash for basic services and carry insurance only for serious illnesses and accidents. Health maintenance is the responsibility of each of us individually. We cannot continue to collectivize the cost of health care and expect things to get better. Authoritarianism is bad for your health. Congress should end the Obamacare mandate and allow market-based medicine to flourish. -- Ron Paul is America's leading voice for limited, constitutional government, low taxes, free markets, and a return to sound monetary policies.

(10 Sep 2009) 1. Close up as US President Barack Obama is announced to chamber 2. Various shots of Obama shaking hands with Congressmen and Senators 3. Wide of Obama at podium 4. SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, President of the United States: "I am not the first President to take up this cause, but I am determined to be the last." 5. Cutaway of applause in chamber 6. Wide of chamber 7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, President of the United States: "It has now been nearly a century since Theodore Roosevelt first called for health care reform. And ever since, nearly every President and Congress, whether Democrat or Republican, has attempted to meet this challenge in some way. A bill for comprehensive health reform was first introduced by John Dingell Senior in 1943. Sixty-five years later, his son continues to introduce that same bill at the beginning of each session." 7. Close up of Senator John Dingell 8. Wide of people applauding Dingell 9. Wide of Obama at podium 10. SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, President of the United States: "We are the only Democracy, the only advanced Democracy on earth, the only wealthy nation that allows such hardship for millions of its people. There are now more than 30 (m) million American citizens who cannot get coverage. In just a two year period one in every three Americans goes without healthcare coverage at some point and every day 14,000 Americans loose their coverage, in other words it can happen to anyone." 11. Cutaway of applause 12. SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, President of the United States: "But what we have also seen in these last months is the same partisan spectacle that only hardens the disdain many Americans have towards their own government. Instead of honest debate, we have seen scare tactics. Some have dug into unyielding ideological camps that offer no hope of compromise. Too many have used this as an opportunity to score short-term political points, even if it robs the country of our opportunity to solve a long-term challenge. And out of this blizzard of charges and counter-charges, confusion has reigned. Well the time for bickering is over. The time for games has passed. Now is the season for action." 13. Cutaway of chamber 14. SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, President of the United States: "And while there remains some significant details to be ironed out, I believe a broad consensus exists for the aspects of the plan I just outlined, consumer protections for those with insurance, an exchange that allows individuals and small businesses to purchase affordable coverage and a requirement that people who can afford insurance, get insurance and I have no doubt these reforms will greatly benefit Americans from all walks of life and as well as the economy as a whole." 15. Wide of Obama being applauded 16. SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, President of the United States: "I understand how difficult this healthcare debate has been, I know many in this country are deeply skeptical that government is looking out for them. I understand the politically safe move would be to kick the can further down the road, to defer reform one more year, or one more election, or one more term, but that is not what this moment calls for, that is not what we came here to do. We did not come to fear the future, we came here to shape it, I still believe we can act, even when its hard." 17. Wide of Obama at end of speech 18. Various of Obama shaking hands after speech STORYLINE: US President Barack Obama urged Congress to enact sweeping health care legislation on Wednesday night, declaring the "time for bickering is over" and the moment had arrived to help millions who have insurance and many more without it.

In which John discusses the complicated reasons why the United States spends so much more on health care than any other country in the world, and along the way reveals some surprising information, including that Americans spend more of their tax dollars on public health care than people in Canada, the UK, or Australia. Who's at fault? Insurance companies? Drug companies? Malpractice lawyers? Hospitals? Or is it more complicated than a simple blame game? (Hint: It's that one.)

Former President Bill Clinton is trying to avoid muddling his message again after he told voters President Barack Obama's signature health care law as "the craziest thing in the world," when he was in OHIO. CLinton stated "You've got this crazy system where all the sudden 25 million more people have health care and then the people are out there busting it, sometimes 60 hours a week, wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half," He insisted his wife, Hillary CLinton, would bring solutions as president. He told students at Ohio State that Hillary Clinton supports a so-called "public option," http://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Bill-Clinton-treads-carefully-on-health-care-9684074.php http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

The President makes clear that as Congress works through health care reform legislation, it must include fundamental changes that lower costs, ensure Americans have choices, and establish access to quality, affordable health care for all Americans. But what we cant welcome, the President says, is reform that just invests more money in the status quo reform that throws good money after bad habits. (public domain)
