    Obama Care reports coming in - HORROR STORIES

    Facebook comments on Obama Care experiences:

    The following are 21 of the best comments that have been posted on the official Healthcare.gov Facebook page so far…

    Needless to say, there are a whole lot of very frustrated and very disappointed people out there right now.

    21. “I am so disappointed. These prices are outrageous and there are huge deductibles. No one can afford this!”

    20. “Good grief. Day three of trying and still can’t get on this website. The government KNEW about this thing going live for two years. TWO YEARS! And this is the best they could do? I shudder to think what’s going to happen once they are in control of my healthcare. They can’t even get their website functioning properly. If my business had rolled out a piece of crap that worked like this I’d be out of business.”

    19. “How is it that Facebook, which is a non-essential social networking web site, can reliably handle BILLIONS of electronic interactions per second, but the Healthcare.gov site, which is literally the very heart of the Obamacare program wasn’t ready for the obvious millions of visitors that you had to know it would be receiving?”

    18. “i’m just going to stop even bothering for a couple weeks or so… once the fervor dies down, hopefully i’ll be able to actually create an account!”

    17. “The Federal Gov’t has ruined everything it has gotten involved in, does anybody really expect this healthcare disaster to be any different? Sorry, I’ll take the asinine fine.”

    16. “And yet another day and several tries I once again keep getting nothing but a completely blank page after I log in. The top tab says ‘Successful URL’. Oh how ironic.”

    15. “Didn’t these Feds ever have mothers that told them not to lie? Maybe they were raised in the wild. This system is trash. I can’t verify my identity or upload documents. Also what’s with Experian verifying ID’s? Don’t care for that at all.”

    14. “I am a single mother of two, in school and working full time, living 75% below the poverty level and I DO NOT qualify for a healthcare subsidy”

    13. “the website can’t verify my identity…the people at the experian verification number can’t verify my identity either….i tried to upload a scan of my driver’s license, and that won’t work either……very annoying process…….i’ve wasted 3 days on this junk.”

    12. “if you’re stupid enough to put all your banking information in to the federal governments computers you are definitely part of the problem”

    11. “Where the HELL am I supposed to get $3,000 more a year to pay for this “bronze” health insurance plan!?!??? And I DO NOT EVEN WANT INSURANCE to begin with!! This is frightening.”

    10. “I have one question. What happens if I can’t afford the Affordable Health Care that you are cramming down my throat? I just ran your calculator, and if it is even close to accurate, I will have a choice…..I can pay my rent and buy groceries, or I can pay the health care premiums, move out into the streets and live under a bridge some where, and go hungry! Can I please get one of those exemption things that the President and Congress got?”

    9. “I’ve been stuck at the security questions since 9am on October 1st”

    8. “Death Panels. Yes. The red plan. It’s affordable. And painless!”

    7. “Here in Austin, TX have gotten to login screen three times today, wait is getting shorter, but am still getting
    a blank screen after getting a quick ‘authenticating, please wait’ message at top left of screen, then nothing but a blank white page and no indication that the browser is waiting for the server to do anything. Attempts to refresh the screen sends me back to the please wait screen.”

    6. “I finally got past the security question problem, got my account, my verification email, and when I went to log in, it said the information was invalid.”

    5. “I want to know how I am expected to pay $300+ for this and still pay my bills when the only income is $710 a month from my husband’s SSI? Am i supposed to lose my home and water and electricity or go to jail because I can’t afford this?”

    4. “Government forces people to pay a new tax. People click on website to see how much this new tax will cost them. Website crashes in the first hour. Government calls it a huge success.”

    3. “I work a minimum wage job…how the heck can I afford health insurance and if the company doesn’t give full time? I am so angry right now…. I share housing with others because I can’t afford my own place… how do you expect people to afford obamacare if they barely get by from paycheck to paycheck????? I can’t afford a fine either! I think you are obligated to give the American people an answer and an explanation!”

    2. “Y’all can kiss my butt. You got that? You want my bank account? I’ll close it. You put a lien on my house? Take it…and the mortgage too. Some things are worth fighting for, and freedom is one of them! I am sick and tired of the redistribution strategies of this socialist country and having my wages STOLEN to pay for them!”

    The best comment was posted by a man named Will Sheehan with type 1 diabetes who was initially very excited to sign up for Obamacare. But what he discovered while trying to sign up was absolutely horrifying…
    I actually made it through this morning at 8:00 A.M. I have a preexisting condition (Type 1 Diabetes) and my income base was 45K-55K annually I chose tier 2 “Silver Plan” and my monthly premiums came out to $597.00 with $13,988 yearly deductible!!! There is NO POSSIBLE way that I can afford this so I “opt-out” and chose to continue along with no insurance.
    I received an email tonight at 5:00 P.M. informing me that my fine would be $4,037 and could be attached to my yearly income tax return. Then you make it to the “REPERCUSSIONS PORTION” for “non-payment” of yearly fine. First, your drivers license will be suspended until paid, and if you go 24 consecutive months with “Non-Payment” and you happen to be a home owner, you will have a federal tax lien placed on your home. You can agree to give your bank information so that they can easy “Automatically withdraw” your “penalties” weekly, bi-weekly or monthly! This by no means is “Free” or even “Affordable.”
    You can see a screenshot of his comment below…

    Don't look at me. I take care of my health, and frankly, I didn't vote for Obama. Not that I am a racist or anything...

    Rusty,
    Graycat,
    That doesn't matter. You don't have a choice. You MUST buy Obama Care or else pay substantial fine to the IRS!
    This is the first example we've received of a person who opted out ! ! !

    Yeah my rates nearly tripled and my deductible went up by a couple grand. Out of curiosity, if I made half my income I'd get a subsidy that would bring my premium back to my current rate. We also now have only two insurers writing policies in my state, so basically a monopoly because one of the two really is not a big player.

    I did get a letter from my current insurer that they would have additional policies off exchange available but that my current policy was not grandfathered. You know the one I'm happy with, that I thought I'd be able to keep. That they said I'd be able to keep. Because...I was happy with it.

    I have opted out of the "healthcare" system long time ago. There's no way I'd participate in this legalized organized crime debacle again. I dare them to make me.

    There are plenty of stories of people who were FINALLY able to get care they needed after being kept out of the health care system because of pre-existing conditions.

    If you consider it a horror story that someone couldn't get on a website for a couple of days or that someone is disappointed by the price of the insurance, you should try living your live in horrible pain because an insurance company has deemed you not worthy of coverage.

    It's too soon to say what the end result will be of this, but I do know that hysterical rhetoric put forth with the clear intent of biasing people is never going to result in any type of progress.

    There are a significant number of people in jails in this country who went there purposely. They committed crimes to get in because they get a roof over their heads and hot meals and it is better to live in jail, warm and dry with food, than cold, wet and starving on the street. We live in a country of over 300 million people - there are BOUND to be success stories due to law of averages alone - and just because there are a handful of people out there that somehow benefited from it doesn't discount the fact that almost everyone else will suffer substantially. That's like saying because 0.5% of people in prison want to be there, the rest of us should go.

    And that's what the total morons in this country do - sacrifice the well-being of people that contribute to society to give people that have never contributed a damn thing more free shit at the expense of the economy and job market. Idiots.
    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    Chaco,
    You got that right, my friend.

    The liberals have made EVERYTHING illegal.
    See this SHOCKING Video by John Stossel.
    It is illegal for some poor guy to start a business without a license.
    It is illegal to drive without car insurance.
    It is now illegal to live without EXPENSIVE health insurance
    It is illegal to drive through a shortened yellow light with Cameras GETTING us.
    Rocketing taxes are forcing people to move & dump their homes on the banks. Look at Detroit, almost a Ghost town of abandoned buildings. Other towns are following in bankruptcy.
    When we left Florida, it was even made illegal to have a yard sale ! They actually had the police pull down yard sale signs & fine the people posting the signs !!!!
    So what are people doing? Going UNDERGROUND to try an make a living. Even that is illegal !
    We used to have flea markets in Florida, but they all shut down because of stupid new laws by the liberals.
    I'm sure we could fill pages of text with everything that is ILLEGAL.

    I once started a small business and found out the HORRORS of the IRS making it impossible to start without a battery of lawyers to wade through all the red tape. When they called me in for an audit over some Chicken Sh*T minor infraction, I saw there was NO WAY to get my business off the ground without a suffocating mass of red tape, so I shut it down & took a loss.

    Freedom in this country is LONG GONE, replaced by insane rules & regulations from every level of government imaginable. That is why jobs are disappearing left & right. It is impossible for a small business to grow. And now ObamaCare has just raised the bar again, and forcing small business to put underpaid employees on part time, or gut their healthcare, forcing them into the EXPENSIVE ObamaCare exchanges. This is an even greater train wreck for Americans. IMO, the USA is into terminal decline with no way out of insanely big government. Maybe all of us will end up in jail, and the only ones left out of jail will be the mass government workers running all the jails. Latest news, the Obamacare Exchanges are forcing insurance companies out of business, sending more workers to look for a job. Even doctors are in a panic over the renewed red tape to survive in business.

    Will Your Doctor Quit? Obamacare Foretells Mass Exodus From Patient Care

    A recent survey by the Doctor Patient Medical Association Foundation reveals that 83 percent of physicians surveyed are thinking of quitting because of Obamacare, and 90 percent feel that the U.S. health care system is now heading in the wrong direction.

    This result is not a surprise; patients everywhere need to be concerned that Obamacare is putting an enormous new weight on the back of doctors who were already over-burdened. More:

    For certain, doctors who are retirement age are likely to call it quits at a time when millions of new people will be getting health insurance, demanding health care. (Assuming they can even get the buggy healthcare.gov working.

    So far I still get very cheap insurance from my employer. It's less than $100 a month because my employer is huge and can negotiate. I agree the affordable care act is not affordable. If I'm ever forced into this system I do not know what I will do. The ACA should have been a single payer-system or nothing at all.
