    Yet another democrat lie. But what is different.
    Obama care "you will see what is in it when it is passed" Pelosi

    Obamacare is a disaster.

    Obama care with mandate cause millions of private insurance plans out.

    Premiums skyrocketed. Max out of pocket skyrocketed.

    "If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor" Obama

    Fact
    Millions could not keep their doctor.

    Business group plans sky rocketed
    Total max out of pocket at least tripled.

    Those adults who actually had the plans remember.

    DemocRATs are liars. All of them. Falsehoods and deceptions are the ONLY way to get people to vote for them. They are despicable.

    It digests a lot better if you would just believe the lies. The one + side is that my knee doc loves my insurance. I can go in most times and not pay for a visit or injection and he Bill's it all to insurance. He has a great staff apparently.

    My experience with obamacare was I went from a decent plan that I could barely afford the premium with an affordable deductible to a plan that the premiums were ridiculously low and a deductible I can not afford.

    I was one. Had to re-up with ACA and opted for the silver plan that was twice what I was paying before.
    Now I'm on a company sponsored "private" plan that is very affordable and great coverage.

    Yeah, Biden, you set your pants on fire with that lie.

    Well, what he said was technically correct. The problem wasn't that policies were cancelled. They simply expired. The old policy forms did not comply with new federal government requirements. Therefore, the deductions taken by individuals or companies for payment of premiums would be disallowed.

    Mr. Obama said you could keep your doctor. Sure, certainly. If the new policy was in a form approved by the government, you could keep your doctor, if he continued to agree to participate under a new policy arrangement. If you were in an HMO like myself (an HMO is not an insurance company, not regulated in my state by the insurance commissioner) AND the doctor continued to be employed by Kaiser, you could go to him.

    Mr. Obama and Mr. Biden simply left out the details which I have given you. But, to a general public that only sees blue skies and green lights when certain politicians speak, it was ok.

    Now for humor. A professor related that he was previously a high level insurance salesman and had to make an insurance presentation to a gas company. He didn't know what to say, so he read off the policy and the group started screaming. There was an exclusion for radioactivity. And, the gas company checked its lines using radioactive materials. The problem was corrected.

    Well, when you don't read materials and listen to politicians, you can be sure that their advisors have read everything and tailor representations to the best possible presentation.

    When ocare was put out I had to get off of my affordable insurance that covered pretty much everything and had to buy crappier more expensive insurance.

    Really helped me out. :upeyes:

    Summary

    Basically Obama lied. Lie by omission or deception.

    Note nobody could see the text until it was passed.

    Also the democrats were going to ram Obamacare through no matter what the voters calls were saying.

    For those too mentally challenged to think for themselves, he lives in an ivory tower. His job for the last, almost 50 years, has been to steal from the people who elected him. The rest of us are just collateral damage. His personal health insurance plan is secure. Obamacare cost him nothing.

    Government interference always drives cost up

    Imagine making our own medicine with no government regulations. No intellectual property law. No Patton law.

    Most people don't see that as government meddling because it is in our constitution.

    Dang I’m in the same boat you are. Just had a cortisone injection Thursday, had meniscus tear surgery in May, 48 therapy sessions and now going to try a gel injection soon. It’s not fun!

    Not one member of the media who has an audience with Biden will call him on his lies yet they give Trump a colorectal scope at every chance.

    A co-worker says the same thing. You seeing an Ortho? My Dr. Says Orthos hate him. He uses a scope, deadens the skin with a freeze spray, and then injects me with Uflexa. 3 shots over 3 weeks, wait a month and then an injection of some stem cell to stimulate growth. Mine is pretty painless but mine is not a meniscus injury. My Doc. Is uber cool. I have his cell # and we talk guns and shop when I lay on the table.
