OBAMACARE UPHELD AND WHAT IT MEANS FOR YOU

by Philip DeFranco • 927,904 views

In today's show we talk about a dream I had, an update on the Miami Zombie, the JP Morgan being more in debt, a Candice Swanepoel gallery, and the passing of Obamacare this morning. Check out...

The right-wingers are always whining about how the left runs screaming and pouting to the courts to get what they want when the voters or Congress don't see things their way. So who's doing that now by trying to scrap the ACA? The right-wingers, that's who. This program doesn't even guarantee a Canadian-style system nor the socialist health care that Congress enjoys, but it helps the underclass offset the oppressive costs of insurance because the GOP's corporate butt buffers don't want to pay grown-up wages. The subsidies that really need to be overturned are the corporate tax breaks and giveaways like oil subsides. Someone challenge BillionaireCare and end it now!

Once upon a time common folk and lower lived in tyranny world wide. There were no opportunities, no freedom and in most countries people were forbidden to speak their minds openly. Then some people came up with a revolutionary notion: ".......that all men were created equally and have been endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, cheif among these are the rights to life, liberty and the PURSUIT of happiness." A.K.A. The maximum liberty of the individual. This was the foundation for what became the greatest nation to ever exist on Earth. America has, because of this principal, done more good for more people than any other nation in history. Now it may be coming to an end. Not because an enemy out side our nation has invaded us but we may be coming to an end becaus of the selfish ambitions and desires of a few. What did my children do to deserve this tyranny from you progressive/communist ba$tards? You've destroysd us. D▲m you all for your selfish arrogance. One day God will bring justice to this country, mark my words.

I don't think people remember that insurance companies are FOR PROFIT.  Why WOULD they take on terminal or preexisting patients when the costs are so gigantic? And that is assuming that the patients are bedridden or don't have jobs! If they did, the company would likely begrudgingly accept them... See, the entire system exists on the idea of the exchange of consideration. Where the insurer provides indemnity to the insured in the case of a covered loss. It wasn't made to be "fair" or "equal." It was made to profit on people's fear of getting hurt! The inflation year-to-year increase is going to be the thing that really nails us!

LOL love how when this guys talks about religion or anything semi conservative he's obviously very aggressive in saying its wrong an loves taking things out of context but when it comes to liberal things like this he makes sure to only state the positive.

The military budget is pretty bloated, I agree, but the war in Iraq is practically over, Afghanistan is winding down (albeit slowly), and we shouldn't see any other wars in the near-future. Besides, that's a pretty general argument. Obamacare won't be repealed because we'll have run out of money for it. Our government isn't incompetent. Questionable sometimes, sure, but not incompetent.

I knew right off you were a young person when I read your reply. This administration is a hand-me -out administration. The more they hand out the more dependent we are on the Gov. yes some people do need help but the majority that milk the system do not. Most of the what you call poor are people that never applied themselves and work the system. Obama is making it easier for people to be on the system. I could go on for hours about so many things he is doing to drag this country down.

What a dreamer. What you are going to get is unlimited waiting periods with this new program. How can there be the amount of services provided by fewer Drs. and heaps more patients. Common sense was not used here at all. We hear cost savings and 40 million more people provided the care. If you believe that then go offer you neighbors to buy them gas and see how much you save in gas this year. Let me know where you live so I can get some of that gas savings you are providing.

I'm so glad I live in Norway... Due to both in severe injuries and sickness my family would have been bankrupt a long time ago had we lived in America. The "as good as free" health care we have here in Norway is just awesome. Long waiting time sometimes because there are no competition is the only problem. When I broke my ankle and and to operate, we spent less than 2 dollars(10kr is the amount we spent) on some painkillers. Not a dime more!

That's just something that has to be done. Not saying that I agree with it but as far as the act is concerned and how it works, I understand it. Thoroughly understand it first b4 you make judgement. I wish people will stop using what other people think and start thinking for themselves.

that you didn't build that...namely the roads to get to your job, the water pipes that let you use the bathroom at your job, the cell towers that mean you can call people from your job or call your job from anywhere, the electrical wiring that means you can blast the a/c at your job in the summer. You didn't build any of that. The government did. Which is exactly what Obama was saying in that speech that you misquoted. He was saying YOU didn't build your business ALONE. Because the fed help

I only see a couple of problems with this act that can be fixed in the future. Requiring jobs over 50 employees will either make companies not hire more than 50 full time or like he said some people are going to part time positions. Second, The act itself will put a lot of strain on doctors and nurses (even though that's their jobs).The more people w insurance, the more patients will be coming in and the more demand for doctors increase as supply stays the same (or decrease)

It is a VIOLATION of the US Constitution for the 85% percent of middle and upper class citizens to be FORCED into paying thousands of dollars in extra fees, both blatant and obscure, in order to provide free healthcare to the 15% of us that are in an unfortunate predicament. With this new policy enacted many middle class families will be unable to procure these higher fees causing them to become part of the much forgotten lower class, essentially lowering societal positions on every level.

Something i find really strange about the USA is that you are able to not have a health insurance (that's right isn't it?) i mean her (in germany) you have to have one or you get punished or not really get punished but u get one if you want it or not and you to pay all monthly financial contributions you would have paid until that day. And this system works pretty good because if you cannot pay the government pay's for you (with taxes of others).

"Fascism is a radical authoritarian nationalist political ideology. Fascists seek elevation of their nation." From my Classes on government and Int'l Relations, Fascism involves absolute power in 1 person. Yeah other countries have the same freedoms, but that is not what makes them Fascist or not, China has a Freedom of Speech and Religion in its constitution, but that can be overruled. The US is not Fascist. Also, Nationalism is involved in spurring any big change (e.g. bolshevik revolution)

another reason doctors don't like it is because it requires them to give tests to patients that they don't need, which is a burden on the patient. Also, when my Dad first became a doctor, he said that he was not allowed to know the cost of the treatment, if they needed it they got it, but now they're forced to think like "He needs it but can't afford it, maybe its better for him just to wait it out"

In Europe specifically UK doctors get about $96K & consultants about $193K. Why is it significantly lower in these countries? Medical students in europe graduate with an average debt of $70K where as the Americans graduate in debt of excess $165K! Bare in mind that they have to pay this huge debt back & American doctors work longer hours than European ones. If anything American doctors are underpaid. In America doctors work 60hrs per week in Europe 40hrs! Its the politicians that are greedy

So, if I'm not a "commie sympathizer" then I would have no qualms about those who do NOT make over $80,000 having to fend for themselves and not have any avenue for proper and immediate healthcare while those who are sitting comfortably in their subdivisions in which they worked so hard to buy and live--cue laughter from me--in as well be afforded all the medical aid that they need. All this act is saying is to pay a SMALL amount for something that will help YOU and others. Not rocket science.

Currently Medicare requires hospitals to do inpatient patient satisfaction surveys to determine (based on a series of questions with 4 response choices) what the rating is. The lower the rating the less money the hospital gets from Medicare. This should be similar to what's going to happen with doctors, just the questions will be altered to fit that situation. So doctors who overbook, have long wait times, are rude, will get deducted pts on surveys, and get lower income from the government.

We may not be what you call civilized. But I am proud to be an American. I don't need to live up to Europes standards to be happy.

It's the kind of government that we know and love, so therefore, you can understand why even the smallest threat to Democracy, will get such negative responses.

Consumer taxes is a given, I guess I should have spelled it out for you. The 1500 millionaires didn't pay taxes due to they earned it through capital gains. If it came from a different source then they had deductions to recoup that portion which all businesses have. You do know that it is legal to claim deductions right or should I spell that out for you too. Also, don't you think the IRS would have gone after those 1500 millionaires if it were illegal? Now that you know, your not as ignorant.

You didn't say Federal. In 2011 the IRS reported over 1500 millionaires payed no income taxes. In your comments you mention several taxes, all of which the consumers eventually pay through their purchasing. So your comment on half of the U.S. doesn't pay taxes is an allusion brought on by ignorance. It is ok though, because ignorance can be fixed. Let us hope you are not stupid. Stupid cannot be fixed.

Well it hurts me. I will be out an extra $13, 600 per year because I am over 50. I can't take that off my taxes, so I am going to have to come up with $14,000 per year more to break even with current income. If I take the public system, I will have to pay out $11,000 per year and will not get to use it for 4 years. So the government gets $44,000 and I get nothing. As for others carrying my burden, I have paid with my Credit card for years for all medical, thus paying it out myself.

A free market of competition is a great system in many cases, health care is not one of them. It is based entirely around profit. I don't know about you, but I would prefer a system that is based around giving optimal health care to as many people as possible rather than to those who can pay. What I would like to see would be an improvement of the system to encourage optimal care while limiting the waiting periods.
