Opponents Spend $235 Million To Stop Medical Care For Everyone In US

The Election Is Tomorrow, and Americans Still Don't Understand Obamacare

If the president loses the election, this could be a key factor.

Posted in Mother Jones

The passage of health care reform has been President Obama's biggest legislative achievement—but also his biggest political liability. Republicans have spent hundreds of millions of dollars attacking the law, claiming, variously, that it will raise taxes, harm Medicare, and place government bureaucrats in charge of health care decisions. The Obama administration and its allies, meanwhile, have been woefully unable to cut through the noise and clearly articulate to Americans how Obamacare will benefit them. If Obama loses the election on Tuesday, their failure to do so could be a factor in his electoral downfall.

Between 2010, when the law passed, and mid-June, when the Supreme Court was poised to decide its fate, Obamacare opponents dumped a combined $235 million into ads attacking the law. Supporters only spent $69 million, according to the New York Times. Of that, the Obama campaign spent a measly $700,000 defending the president's signature accomplishment. Read more...

I know that with Obamacare I won't get booted off my insurance plan if I get sick for vague 'pre-existing conditions'

I know my college kid can stay on my insurance because God knows he can't afford it himself.

I know if me or a family member get very sick, half-way through treatment they won't get cut off the plan for reaching a coverage limit or annual cap.

Seniors get more money to cover the doughnut hole in their prescription drug plan.

Seniors will also get a free visit with primary care doc to plan their prevention services... and no copays for those prevention services.

Small businesses get 50% of premium costs as a tax credit if they offer health insurance to workers.


So, if you're curious you can read the above.

Poster # 1 nice democratic talking points! No one understands obama care! Not even the government! All they see is more money coming in from it! And yes like the supreme court ruled it is a TAX!

Well 1:59, I hate to tell you, but this is the actual legislation.

See, talking points are something corporate news channels crank out over and over and over while flashing *NEWS ALERT* on the screen. They are typically opinions or half truths.

See, these are facts. These are things that are written down in the legislature that the Congress of the United States passed and the President signed.

I pity you if you can't understand the difference between facts and talking points. But this is typical of people living inside the bubble.

Just because you don't understand the law, and people on tv continue to yell at you "No one UNDERSTANDS IT!" ... doesn't make it so.

Funny you didn't mention any costs or new taxes or even much higher insurance premiums! But most like yourself don't want to talk about that part! Wait till 2014 when the all costs come due!

Well it is 2400 pages long for a reason. Because he knows you wont read it...So we are stealing money from social security and medicare and raising taxes to pay for it...So at least I know when I am 65 and social security is gone and I am MANDATED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT to carry insurance, though I dont have any income I can at least be fined repeatedly untill I sell the family farm for money so I can buy insurance. Thank you Obummer. You did good... You will be labeled a criminal if you make your own decision about insurance. Change you can believe in....

Only a fool would vote for keeping Obama Care. They paint a pretty picture, but in the end you will be disappointed...I guarantee it. If you ever had to deal with military medicine or the VA you know what I am talking about. If you have never had the misfortune of dealing with it consider yourself lucky. If your vote goes to keep BHO Care in place you will see what I am speaking of...Please don't whine when you have to come to the ER because you can't get an appointment with a doctor... You think Health Care is expensive now....Just wait until it's FREE.....

My husband had been dealing with the VA for years and it is not any different now than way back. Stop touting all of these lies.
Vote for Willard you suckers. He only cares about himself and his other rich cronies. What makes you wanna-bes think he will help your sorry asses? The rich want to squash us underdogs and be done with us. And ever so slowly, it is happening......

remember that 4 years from now when the country is bankrupt, or when your kids have nothing, because it is all gone, but don't worry, your welfare check is safe for another 4 years, that's all that matters...........
