I am not going to reply to all of Anton's lies but the one that says there will be 16,000 is definitely not true. Where did Anton get his information from? This falsehood is being espoused by the tea parties and the insurance and big pharma industries. It is simply not true.

To all of you that dislike the government, why not just eliminate the federal government entirely? That way each state could have their own "federal government" and have and make their own laws and constitution. No military at the federal level, the National Guard of each state could handle military matters. Look at the money you'd save with our present federal government gone. Each state would be a government by themselves and they and they alone would be responsible for everything that our present federal government now takes care of. Oh yes each state would have to issue passports and take care of all purchasing that is presently done by the federal government and they'd have to supply ambassadors to all the other "countries," Of course when emergencies arose there might be some problems but so be it, rightt?

You are taking things from the ridiculous to the complete absurd chuckpitboss. (I hope you're not really a pitboss after displaying such a low IQ).

What Republicans want is less government in our private lives, not out of our lives altogether. Although with the current crop of politicians, that may not be such a bad idea.

Obama says that my insurance and medications are going down, BULL ****!!! I am on a limited monthly budget and I have to live in a low in-come apart, sure it is nice but it could be better, and as it is, I have to pay outrages medical fees for specialist. As it is now, I am being harassed by an out of state collection ageny for a $400.00 to a local hospital which I am unable to pay. And now I have to pay for his stupid over priced insurance????

The ILLEGALS have it made because they are mis-represented by the legal firms for the poor looking to gain noteriety in saying hey look at me, I am for the poor but end up sticking it to everyone else with high fees and such and the big loosers are people like myself and the people who ae trying to open new job oppertunities but get forced out because of stupid federal and stated regulations.

You need to calm down and actually look at your options. Did it ever occur to you that you might not have had the $400 bill if you had real insurance? Did you check to see what your actual out-of-pocket will be under the ACA (you will probably pay next to nothing for a good plan once the tax credits are applied). Don't get all your news from Faux, they are the biggest liars on the planet.

The direction we are going is like: we need to pass this Health Bill to know what it has, you can keep your insurance and your doctor if you want, and What else? Results: Health Insurance Co. #1, The people: #0.

I am a retired federal employee. I kept My health insurance from my employer. However, every year the premiums are increased and I end up with less money every month to meet my needs. The 1.5 increase does not even cover the $77.00 increase in monthly premiums plus the higher co pays for specialty medication i need to stay alive after liver transplant. The insurance companies get richer and we have to die because we can not afford our medical care. We either eat or visit doctors and buy medication AND PAY THE OUTRAGEOUS INSURANCE PREMIUMS AND CO PAYS. What do we do? Whats next?

You should have saved money while you worked. Social Security was never expected to be the only spending money of the retired.

Hey Stupids! Every major civilized country has health care provided for their citizens except the USA. That is because the insurance companies and medical industries don't want it because it will limit the amount to be paid by individuals. We do not have the best health care in the world at all...
Countries like Switzerland and the Scandinavian countries do have it. Meanwhile millions of US citizens have to go to the emergency rooms for their health care. Keep the Affordable Care Act in place and keep making it better and better over years. Socialized medicine is where it's at!!!!
