Obama – and “his care”


A big change in America’s health care system is coming at the beginning of next year.

The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, will go into full effect in 2014, giving millions of uninsured Americans access to health care.

However, there are still misconceptions about the law.

In today’s Just Explain It, we’ll tell you five things you might not know about Obamacare.

Number one… Contrary to what 42 percent of Americans think, Obamacare really is happening. In fact, people can start signing up for state-run health insurance on October 1st. That’s when states and the federal government will open marketplaces, called exchanges, to offer subsidized benefits to the nation’s 50 million uninsured.

Number two… Another survey found that a majority of Americans think the law cuts Medicare benefits and covers undocumented immigrants. It doesn’t.

Actually, the government expects the average Medicare recipient to save approximately $35,000 over the next ten years.

 Number three… Tax credits. Next year, health insurance for eligible individuals or families will be subsidized.

For example, someone making just under $23,000 a year wouldn’t have to spend more than 6.3 percent of their annual income on health insurance. Based on a $3,030 plan, their contribution would be $1,450. Under Obamacare, they’d receive a tax credit of $1,580 to put towards their coverage.

Number four The 80/20 rule. Insurers are now required to spend at least 80 percent of premium dollars on providing healthcare. The other 20 percent can be used on overhead expenses like excessive administrative costs and profits. In 2012, this provision saved Americans over two billion dollars.

If insurers don’t comply, they’re required to provide customers with a rebate. In 2011, over 13 million consumers received $1.1 billion in rebates – that’s around $150 per customer.

And finally… taxes. No matter what you’ve heard, your health benefits under Obamacare will not be taxed. The law does require that employers report the value of your annual coverage on your W-2, but the government says that’s just for workers’ information.

In the end, the Affordable Care Act is incredibly complex piece of legislation I AM SURE THAT THE PRESIDENT AND OTHER HIGH POWERED POLITICIANS WILL NOT HAVE OBAMACARE.

It enacts sweeping reforms that involve every state and millions of Americans. Do you think it will work for you? … Siggghhhh and Blaahhh

God – Politics – Kids – Opinions – Church

God indeed is everywhere and sees everything BEFORE things even occur. Nevertheless, I have often heard so many people say why God… where was God…..when God in reference to shootings on school grounds.

Well according to legislation that has been passed for some years now, ONE MOTHER did not like that her son had to take part in a prayer in school and she fought to have a right to say NO to prayer. She was so gun ho about her beliefs that a bill was created and prayer from ALL SCHOOLS WAS REMOVED!

Now please keep in mind that was the opinion of only ONE MOTHER – sad to say….there were no marches… no other parents showed a huge concern in disagreement with her, no one else went to Capital Hill to fight against what she wanted the lawmakers to do etc..etc..etc.. churches did not protest or even make the situation apart of their morning sermons like they usually do when there is a public issue –

People mostly felt that this bill would not pass due to it being her OWN OPINION of what she felt her daughter should not have to be doing. Sadly, a great deal of people do not understand that is REALLY WHAT POLITICS is – the opinions of people who feel that their way of life is best suited for most communities, cities, counties, states etc. and they vote on it and MAJORITY RULES!

Another sad thing is that this prayer has been done in schools from the beginning of time ( fourscore and seven years ago as President Abraham Lincoln would say ) and this prayer is DONE IN CONGRESS and they still bypassed that and passed legislation on the same GOD that is written all over our money, school houses, churches and even legislation!!!!

So back to the questions of where was God…why God…when God…
Well I would like to ask this question to the PEOPLE THAT BELIEVE IN PRAYER………. Where were YOU when you got wind that this legislation was brought before Congress?

Because, one lady asked for God to be removed from schools… the flood gates of people did not put up a huge fight for her legislation to be thrown out and some people ONLY talked / complained amongst themselves which meant – YOU DID NOTHING.

Doing nothing is the same as AGREEING –

God does not enter into a place / space where He is not asked to come…..where He is not welcomed into. For the record, God WAS KICKED OUT!!! He is a gentleman and will NOT bo-guard His way into our lives….let alone a situation.

One question, is this not an interesting dynamic! Gotta love America!
