There is no system left to break. It's all gone down the tubes as far as I'm concerned. The left has been buying votes with entitlements for so many generations in urban America that this portion of the American population now are slaves to the US government. When the Chinese decide to collect on their T-Bills as the US defaults they will be slaves to the Chinese government. Obamacare will fail, as will social security, medicare, foodstamps, the list goes on.

the only thing affordable in the ACA is if you are unemployed and living solely on those of us paying taxes, at some point isn't enough enough?

We had a chance to stop this when Mitt Romney ran...A million voters decided not to vote because they had to choose between Obama and a Mormon! Can you believe any American would throw the election to Obama because of religious preference?? It has cost us dearly!!

The ACA is the 1st step in improving health care for all citizens.

You are delusional. America had the best health care system in the world until the socialists got control of the government. George Washington is rolling over in his grave at how the country has forsaken the principals that built this once great nation! You are the problem!

Don't defund Obamacare, REPEAL it. Why are they taking away and canceling insurance from the people that are paying the kind they can afford and signing up everybody else onto Medicaid?????

Obamacare is NOT ABOUT HEALTHCARE PEOPLE! Wake up! It's a tool to destroy the system in order to run the capitalist insurance companies out of business so that you will have to be dependant on the single payer (government exchanges) system. In order to FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE AMERICA they must destroy capitalism! For America's sake, PLEASE WAKE UP AND VOTE!

After yesterdays news I am afraid that our affordable Anthem Blue Cross might be cancelled. A few months ago Blue Cross said not to worry as plans from before 2010 were grandfathered in. But I now worry that the plan we had for about 20 years will be cancelled.

Do you REALLY think OBAMA CARES ABOUT AFFORDABILITY? He has DOUBLED in TRILLIONS the national debt during his term in office. TWICE as much debt as ALL THE PREVIOUS PRESIDENTS COMBINED! COMBINED PEOPLE! You and I and our children's children will be able to pay off this debt. This is not mis management..This is on purpose!!!!!

America's debt would have increased under ANY president. Is that not clear to everyone? With the interest on it increasing as we speak, no president could have entered office, be thwarted in his efforts by Congress, and hoped to reduce the debt at all. Congress working against the President (any president) has prevented a lot of good laws and good efforts which could have helped Americans. The government stalls itself while the debt just gets bigger. And yes, China is waiting.

My BC/BS went up significantly with less coverage. "Don't worry I am from the Government and I am here to help you" When did that ever make you comfortable?

I agree with all the comments above. Socialized medicine will not work. Plus, when all of us that can afford it decide we will not continue to pay for those who won't pay for it themselves, then what will happen? There are already too many people taking handouts in this country.

What will happen is YOU will be TAXED more to provide for those who will not work. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO decide TO NOT PAY. We have always agreed that those who CANNOT provide for themselves should be helped until they CAN provide for themselves. Socialism guarantees we that we will provide for all...including the undeserving!! Wake up Silent Majority!

The really funny part will be when we're all "paying" top dollar for health insurance but have zero access to health care. That'll be in about 2015-16.

I had a policy I liked and insurance company agreed to provide it for me. We agreed on a price Obamacare says it doesn't fit their modile so I can't buy that policy anymore. Is this the role of government. 90 million people are going to loose the health care they have (congressanal record found today). This was always the plan. Destroy health insurance companies so we would be force to have socialized medicine. Does the shut down to stop Obamacare look like such a bad idea now?

I have friends that have had their Health care cancelled due to Oboma Bin Laden's health care. It will severely hurt the majority of health care customers and providers.

Our Blue Cross/Blue Shield policy has been canceled due to Obamacare. My cousin has her quote after the cancelation and it is 334 percent higher. This is unaffordable socialilzed medicine. As a Montanan we know how effective socialized medicine is; we watch the Canadians travel to Montana for elective surferies that they cannot wait for.
