You agreed with Paul that NPs keep the cost down. I was assuming you'd drink the rest of the koolaid and agree with his numbers.

The 16,000 new IRS employees will almost entirely be processing those sweet sweet tax credits, Congress not only did not exempt itself but actually required its members to purchase insurance on an exchange, the lag between new taxes and new benefits is much lower than 4 years (I think for the 0.9% surtax on high incomes, it's 1 year before the major part of the new benefits comes into play, although many of the benefits have already begun), and there's a big difference between "will become broke if nothing changes" and "is broke."

I cannot fathom where you learn your information from.

I will address one, just one, of the ignorant statement in this disaster of a post:

Quote :
"there's a big difference between "will become broke if nothing changes" and "is broke.""


First, broke means 'has no money'.
Second, United States has no money.
Third, United States is spending borrowed money.
A broke person who spends someone else's money is still 'broke'.

A person who spends all of someone else's money and cannot repay his debts is 'owned' and the only way out is if you fundamentally kill or slay your guarantor.

in which case, you're still broke.

If you'd like to debunk the other claims for yourself, please be my guest for I have already done that.

You haven't debunked the other claims.

The onus is on you since you're calling shenanigans. But, since you fail at proving any point, I'll do your work for you.

So I started to read H.R. 3952 for myself and realized it's impossible to read. Why? Because the text is very specific and just when you think you understand it, you come to the "revisions". Then you come to the "Amendments" . Then you come to the "Exceptions". Then it's says "revisions for I. So you have to scroll up to I and lose your place. Then revisions for II, then revisions for III, all the way through XVIII and they do this on purpose to confuse you because they could have easy put the revision INSIDE I, II, III... where it belongs. Now, when you read the text of I,II,III... you have no idea if there is a revision, amendment, or an exemption for it unless you read the whole document.

Fun facts:

<<<<14 pages>>>> length of The Constitution
<<<<1278 pages>>>> The length of H.R. 3590 - Obamacare

*Both MSWORD text, single spaced.

It is ridiculous to think that ANYONE IN THE GOVERNMENT will read, much less comprehend, all aspects of the Health Care Act when the government doesn't read, much less COMPREHEND, the simple text of the 14 page CONSTITUTION.


<<<<8,030>>>> words in the Constitution
<<<<379,891>>>> words in H.R. 3590

Exchanges are not themselves insurers, so they do not bear risk themselves.


The next paragraph after the one you copied and pasted as a reference:

(4) NO PENALTY FOR TRANSFERRING TO MINIMUM ESSENTIAL COVERAGE OUTSIDE EXCHANGE. An Exchange, or a qualified health plan offered through an Exchange, shall not impose any penalty or other fee on an individual who cancels enrollment in a plan because the individual becomes eligible for minimum essential coverage (as defined in section 5000A(f) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 without regard to paragraph (1) (C) or (D) thereof) or such coverage becomes affordable (within the meaning of section 36B (C) (2) (c) of such Code).(e)ENROLLMENT THROUGH AGENTS OR BRO- KERS. The Secretary shall establish procedures under which a State may allow agents or brokers

I'm following the fact that you apparently don't understand basic english.

"passed by a Congress that...exempted themselves from it."




You realize the shit you posted applies to EVERYONE. Everyone. That has nothing to do with Congress exempting itself.

Insurance provided by the government to members of Congress must come from the exchange. Yes, they can still buy their own insurance elsewhere...so can everyone else.

I'm actually trying to understand this shit. You are lmao'ing all over yourself for some asinine reason.

Not a single damn person on this website has read H.R. 3590. All you're doing is quoting quotes from second hand sources, but ignore that it's entirely possible, and completely plausible, for there to be two conflicting statements within the same document. The implications is that we're both right and we're both wrong at the same time which is EXACTLY the plan of the federal government.

You haven't refuted anything. What you posted states that you're more than welcome to buy other (not from the exchange) insurance on your own and that it must still meet the guidelines.

Guess what that means? They're not exempt. You're not exempt. You still must abide by the minimum guidelines.

Bottom line is that Congress has to follow the law just like everyone else. The government provided insurance they receive must come from the exchange.
