  • It runs about 2,000 pages, not 1,000 pages.  Then you have 6,000 pages of Govt regs on how to put it on the internet.  I had no problem in my current health ins system.  I have been very healthy and never bought health insurance.  I worked at jobs that paid me money.  So, if I needed to have a baby or take medicine, or go to the ER, I paid out of pocket, radical, right!  I also set up a health care savings account for myself when I was 18 years old.  I still have that account and have used about 10,000 dollars out of pocket for visits to MD’s, etc.  I spend multi thousands of  dollars on multi-vitamins and minerals.  That is why I am healthy and not sick all the time.

  • I can’t understand why there are some people don’t want having a healthcare. I mean: Nobody have to be sick because he/she can’t go to a doctor. Nobody have to die because he can’t pay the bill for medicine.
    I don’t understand why this healthcare and freedom don’t fits together
    In my opinion freedom means you can have a job like you like, go, where ever you want AND go to a doctor, when you would like to go
    This rule just don’t helps rich people getting more rich and making pore people more pore

  • I recommend those of you to check out Thomas Sowell’s book “Dismantling America” where he address the health care / medical care issue.

  • You may have noticed this pattern in government. Government will fabricate or exaggerate a problem, then present itself as the solution to that. Their applied solution will fail miserably, and without a doubt, they will announce that even more government is needed to adequately address the problem. Very few people in DC have been looking out for us. I think states need their power back, which will be the next battleground for Obama care. It is unconstitutional.

  • “no one is bargaining on our behalf” well the idea is we elect the politicians-they argue on our behalf…of course the problem with political parties is too often they pull the party line rather than what the people want.

    “This is unfortunately not true” not in USA (a private system) but it is in the rest of the 1st world (all public systems).

  • I do feel that Obama wants total control over us…. when he first came into office…. remember how our parents ssi and other benefits started disappearing slowly? The truth is… the government was hoping that people wouldn’t see, but ppl talk and Obama isn’t the greatest! he has made more of a mess since he has been in office than we have ever had before…. and because he doesn’t know how to clean up his own messes, we the people are going to pay dearly for it!

  • My health insurance improved dramatically after the ACA. I really hope it’s expanded so everyone can benefit as I have. Or, of course, single payer would also work fine, though I doubt we’ll ever be that blessed.

  • all you people bitching about the ACA need to quit watching the lies on Fox News! This is a wonderful thing that is helping so many people already. I see it every day.

  • Why young healthy people refuse to participate in obamacare? Because it will make them become slave bondage of government, under pretext taking care sick people. Young healthy people refusal to join Obamacare is our last gate to protect liberty

  • I expect the worst, therefore every policy is good, right? No, that’s not how it works lol. If you expected costs to go up more, but it only went up a little, that’s still bad; we need a new system.

  • I guess we’ll see, starting next year…if the costs end up higher (but i dont see how it could happen, if the pool is larger) then we can all be sure it’ll be very unpopular (and it will be dropped like a bag of dirt, sooner rather than later)…but i imagine it will be like when Medicaid/Medicare were brought in, the people were skeptical at 1st but now those programs are very popular.

  • There’s one reason and one reason only for all the problems in your healthcare system. Profits. Go single payer or government run system, and you’ll get better care for less money. This isn’t fucking hard America.

  • at 3:19 the video shows Uncle Sam taking money out of the insurance companies piggy bank and giving it to medicare beneficiaries to help close the drug coverage gap. Is this an accurate representation? Does the money actually come from the Insurance Co or the Federal govt?

  • WHY TAX THE TANNERS? NOW I’M GOING TO HAVE TO SPACE NY TREATMENT MORE TO KEEP THEM AFFORDABLE!! I WAS 10 MONTHS AWAY FROM LOOKING LIKE A CATCHER’S MITT!!!

  •   Read the latest Congressional Budget Office Report. Squashing out the working man, thanks to a thoughtless absent minded lawyer running the country. Great plan…kill off the middle class, make the rich richer, allow lawyers to decide your healthcare plan, exempt congress from the same plans.  I wanted healthcare reform…not this debacle. 

  • What they don’t tell you is the amount of money you have to pay in order to get those benefits started (deductibles). Ranging from $5k to $13k. I have to pay the full $500.00 to see a specialist? fuck that. i’m getting a private insurance to pay a $10 copay.

  • Medicaid did not expand in every State.   Georgia is a state Medicaid did not expand in for the people.   Hopefully, this will happen very soon. 

  • People have way to many opinions the health care companies have brainwashed you. That’s sad that we live in a countries were people don’t want our sick to be treated

  • “is more about control” no, it’s more about making care affordable and accessible to everyone…the idea is simple, if there’s more people contributing to the pool there’s more money for giving people care and yes even more profit for the unneeded middle-man insurance companies. If by ‘control’ you mean allowing these companies this needless profit, i can agree.

    “470,000 more people lost their current health coverage” even IF this is true there’s 20 plus million who will now get access to care

  • So I went over to market place checked my options. They want me to pay $150/mon and $6000 deductible/year before my insurance would even pay a single dollar. How the Hell does this thing make any sense to anyone??? In other words unless I pay $300/month for Top insurance plans I can’t see a doctor. 

  • Really interesting to watch. The style is pretty engaging. And when once can engage the viewers, then issue like health insurance also seems easy.

  • if costs were high due to insurance, why bother with it at all. Could Obama/dems have some vested interest in insurance *cough*? I’ve also read that hospitals raise prices for uninsured patients because of how little the make on the insured ones. Insurance companies have always used their clout to pay as little as they can negotiate, while no one has been negotiating for the uninsured. THAT is what should be done.

  • This video is clearly trying to hide all negatives about the so called Obamacare. It is actually funny they call it Obamacare, like Obama wrote 1000 pages himself, just two years after he was elected by the elite for the US president. My guess is that Obamacare was written by health insurence coporations, medical giants and banking sector. The sole purpose is to make money and not to help individuals.

  • Aburgheim, many of us are informed and recognize Obama’s a lying idiot. However, we’ve lost so much say in our government I don’t even believe the majority of us like him, and those who do are being fooled.

    The electoral college is no longer necessary and damages our county, it should be done away with, but small states won’t vote it out because it gives them more influence.

  • THIS MOVEMENT HAS JUST PUT OUT A COMMERCIAL ADVERTISEMENT ABOUT REMOVING ALL NUCLEAR WEAPONS ON EARTH. THIS DEAL TO BE SIGNED FOR THOSE THAT ARE BORN AGAIN BELIEVERS KNOW ABOUT THIS ALREADY BUT FOR THOSE THAT DON’T ALL I CAN SAY IS WATCH BEFORE YOUR EYES WHAT I SAY UNFOLD. SCOFF NOW BUT ULTIMATELY YOU WILL BE THE IDIOT FOR NOT BELIEVING-> STICKS N STONES WILL BREAK MY BONES. PPL LOVE TO ACT 3RD GRADE AND TALK TRASH BECAUSE THEY KNOW THEY CAN HIDE IN THE COMFORT OF THEIR BEDROOM. BUT AS I WAS SAYING THIS DEAL WILL IN FACT BE SIGNED AND THE ONE TO BRING IT ALL ABOUT WILL BE THE SON OF THE KING OF FECES HIMSELF THE UGLY BURNT TO A CRISP ON HIS DESCENCION CASTED OUT OF HEAVENTHE ONE YOU ALL KNOW AS THE DEVIL. PPL WE ARE NOW IN THE LAST DECADE OF LIFE HERE AS YOU KNOW IT. YES IT WILL CONTINUE BUT IN A DIFFERENT FORM & SO WITH THAT I ASK THAT YOU ASK THE MOST HIGH FOR FORGIVENESS AND ASK HIM TO COME IN YOUR HEART AS YOUR SAVIOR. GOD GAVE US A FREE GIFT A GIFT UNLIKE ANYTHING EVER WERE ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS BELIEVE JESUS(YESHUA) DIED ON A CROSS FOR YOUR & MY SINS & HE WAS RISIN FROM DEATH 3 DAYS LATER. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS BELIEVE SAY A SIMPLE PRAYER OF ASKING GOD TO FORGIVE YOU OF YOUR SINS N THAT YOU BELIEVE HE DIED IN THE CROSS FOR YOUR SINS SO THAT YOU COULD GO TO HEAVEN. THAT JESUS(YESHUA) CAME BACK TO EARTH 3 DAYS AFTER PLACED IN A TOMB IS ALIVE TODAY RIGHT NOW N FOREVER MORE THAT YOU DECLARE HIM SAVIOR IF YOUR LIFE AND BELIEVE. IF YOU TRULY BELIEVE WITH FAITH YOU WILL BE SAVED. I ENCOURAGE YOU TO PRAY, READ A BIBLE. BROTHERS N SISTERS OUR TIME HERE IN EARTH IS SHORT. LET’S MAKE IT COUNT. GOD BLESS

  • I think the issue should be focused on $150 or more for a freakin Tylenol? A hospital once charged me $158.00 for a diaper when my daughter was getting checked out, that was in 1990

  • “forced to buy…cover things they don’t need” if youre getting what YOU need AND youre paying less, why would that matter? Who cares? Under a public system you’d pay for any and all needed care, no matter who it is that needs it…that’s the way a pool works, it covers everyone.

    Define “good investments” sir! Dont we need healthy workers?.these companies find ways to keep from paying for care people NEED, to keep up profits…whats the role of healthcare, to make profit or heal the sick?

  • I am from europe and i tell you right now that obama is a liar!! socialized healthcare means automatic AND indiscriminate healthcare based on an amount that is taken out of your wages like taxes. You people will still have to pay for some stupid plan that might not even cover what could happen to you. Your so called plan is nothing but an agreement with a private sector entity and some greedy insurance. Remember obama promised to have all those new healthcare agreements in open debate on cspan?? Do you remember?? It never happened!! In fact cspan even offered to install more cameras and you know what happened?? It all took place behind closed doors with the same players, the same insurance companies and health care providers!! Nothing changed!!! Obama is a new world order fascist just like bush, clinton and all the other corporate bought idiots you people voted for with out proof…. yeah thats an other thing about your joke of a democracy!!! You people vote without proof/receipt/documentation and then the tv tells you who is president. You are brainwashed and fucked!! But hey you either still dream about the 60 or you dream about looking like justin bieber or britney spears. While you idiots discussed homosexuality and birth control issues the corps took your production lines overseas,killed your jobs and now all you got left is either to wake up and take america back or keep on drinking and taking prozac and of course pray to some old guy in the sky that made the world in 6 days 4000 years ago……. Oh so sorry you are all good people and i insulted your feelings. Maybe i am not european but “american” native or from Vietnam or Japan or maybe from Iraq or Afghanistan or some other country you destroyed so you can dream your american nightmare. Do i sound angry?? Is that a problem for you? OOOHHHHH toooo baaaaaad, you see a long time ago when you were young and still had feelings and emotions “they” domesticated you and actually made you hate and distrust yourself and your emotions and feelings! Got to be nice you see? Dont raise your voice you see? Got to be proper you see? Boy oh boy i think you dear america and all your good people are truly lost!!

  • “Stop encouraging medical expenditures” that says it all. You don’t want people to use their health insurance. Which is why you group all of the healthy young people together. Leaving old sick Americans to die in the street. Nice.

  • America isn’t Europe people, remember who we are. We were a small group of people who left a large oppressive govnt, then when they came to take this country we fought their well established military with farmers and villagers. We ran the monarchy out of our country and gave them the finger. That’s a historical fairytale. We do things our own way and we are fighters. We rose to super power status, leading the world……not trying to be like anyone else. Think about that before you suggest we be more like others.

  • One problem with this discussion is that people are confusing insurance with health care. They are two different things, and one doesn’t guarantee the other.

  • This video is a huge load of horse$%#.  Anybody with even a marginal grasp of economics would know that there’s no way this works without gouging the middle class.

  • Amen! I agree… besides this whole Obama care thing has me beyond nervous! Another money tacit…. and again we are the one’s they come after…. because America is so broke!
    I truly believe that this whole thing will smell like a rose at first, but like everything…. it will change for the worst.

  • As a foreigner: why wouldn’t government reduce the size of healthcare infrastructure and make it low quality and free?
    That would reduce the spendings
    Provide healthcare to any one in case of emergency.
    Would make insurances optional and useful only for private clinics, thus creating a free self regulating market.
    Isn’t American dream based on idea of voting with your money?

  • You say you reap these types of benefits for “free” So you’re telling me that the doctors in in the UK pay money to go to medical school so they can work for free merely to help sick / injured people? If this is truly the case, there are only two options here 1.) You pay an outrageous amount of annual taxes, which are used to fund this so-called “free” care. 2.) You are lying. Which one is it?

  • If it was about making care affordable it completely failed. I think we are actually in very much agreement about using health insurance as the medium to provide affordable health care, and that is where my biggest problem with this plan is. We are now paying insurance companies (dem estimate) 90% more than before(less affordable), getting higher deductibles (less affordable) and paying higher copays (less affordable). They should attack costs(the issue), not force us all to pay more.

  • it doesnt matter whether the republicans said one thing or the democrats something. pull your head out of the politics of it and focus on what is really at stake, the lives of the american people. Those who focus on the political party titles are suffering from extreme ignorance. This bill has many good points and a good intention, but there are many holes in the body of the text. Because of the strife between the power war being waged between the two parties, it is not possible for this bill (or any other law or plan that is formulated) to be as helpful as it could be. we have lost what washington first intended for this country and have drifted toward what our founders feared. I am 17 years old and I hope my generation will turn this country around or the generation in office right now will edit this good-will intention and work together to better the lives of the american people

  • btw Britain and Switzerland both have the BEST healthcare systems in the world. and they provide “FREE” health care. Obviously taxes involved but with private i would have more than half my wages gone when i put myself and my whole family on. Instead i have a very small fraction taking by tax and i can visit doctors as many times as i want and my children can, my granmother! and i dont need to check if my insurance covers it and dont have to fill forms. I just know that i go there and il get it

  • Sorry we pay more for less coverage than we used to have. We lost our family doctor which we loved. 0bamacare sucks. Thanks democrats and thanks 0bama.

  • Higher Deductible, which means we pay UP FRONT with OUR OWN money before insurance kicks in, while we pay “Premiums” with OUR OWN money, and premiums ain’t cheap sweetheart… I would love to pay but I want fair prices, it’s only fair, and if u believe life ain’t fair, you’ve been sold on bullshit, sorry Love. Life is supposed to be good and joyful! Prosperous and abundant! Pain only happens so we can learn and evolve b.c only in empathy may we extend our hands our hearts and our minds if they are to serve to help others and ourselves. There’s plenty of money for this to ALL work out! Quit creating patheticbeneath-us wars! Its a new platform and the war that we must fight now is one of good ideas and better ideas to come! Love and compassion will Lead the way through wisdom and painful experiences we’ve collectively experienced. Trust Good things are happening! God Bless!

  • I think forcing everyone to buy overpriced insurance, and then subsidizing the low income folks, is probably worse than doing nothing. As it stands now, Obamacare has taken more people off insurance(far more) than it has insured due to the bizarre legislation, that basically refuses to grandfather in all the plans they claimed would be. Bait and switches at every turn, I don’t know how people can still have faith in this scam. That is not even the best part.

  • Ppl say that Obama is a liar but who ever said that Politicians tell the truth. Maybe socialism is near, maybe Aliens probe politicians, or maybe we’re all in for a surprise…. who knows? but this vid wuz cute.

  • ‘Obama care is actually Repubs idea’ is one of the biggest lies told, and irrelevant. I would be just as irate, if not more, if this came out of a rpublican. It seems when politicians ‘compromise’, again, no one is bargaining on our behalf. “hospitals ALWAYS get paid the same for a procedure” This is unfortunately not true. Hospitals have a ‘sticker price’ and usually work with people who can’t afford it. Insurance companies pay a fraction of that, medicaid pays the least possible(by law).

  • The thing is everyone is being forced to buy plans that cover things they don’t need-Like elderly men paying for birth control. Why? Well at the end of the year The administration is going to look over the payouts made and collect any excess earnings the insurance companies in the exchanges make.This is where the money magically vanishes. Insurance companies used to make good investments in hopes to expand earnings.Now they will make ‘bad investments'(waste/fraud) to avoid paying back anything.

  • I didn’t hear anything about how my Grandparent’s premium went up.  Or that Americans are paying for the “free” healthcare.  Look up PJTV Obamacare, to get all that stuff.

  • “Obama/dems have some vested interest in insurance” if i’m not mistaken they wanted to do an actual true public system like the rest of the 1st world nations have, but the Reps wouldn’t allow it (the med insurance lobby is tight with the Reps) and obamacare was the resulting compromise.

    “because of how little the make on the insured ones” well under a true public system this never happens, the hospitals ALWAYS get paid the same for a procedure, no matter the income of the patient.

  • Especially when people start going to prison for not paying, yes they will do just the same as not paying your tax bill, that is why they put it in the IRS control

  • Big surprise folks. Insurance companies area businesses after all with investors in the background. If you were a stockholder/investor and knew that they were not screening people with pre existing conditions what would you do with the money you invested in X Insurance Co? Companies would lose money/investors hand over fist. Capitalism at its best. Just a thought.

  • yes, definitely! But this is the same type of fraud perpetrated by our government, so you can’t expect them to do anything to improve it.

  • U Americans can be total idiots, im from the UK i dont pay anything apart from yearly taxes which are annoying but way more acceptable than private healthcare and insurance. I dont have insurance so when iv got a cold i just call the doctors make and appointment, get looked and leave WITHOUT paying. If i break my arm just go to the hospital they put a cast or whatever and i leave WITHOUT paying! WITHOUT signing any forms. my son my mother everyone can have their lives saved! Thats amazing!

  • Just signed up.  I have a better policy (no deductible) and I’m paying $70.00 less per month with the very same insurance company I was using previously.  I guess they are forced to compete now.  This is WITHOUT any subsidy.

  • The Federalist papers were a lobbying tool never discussed by the Continental Congress. Some of the papers were sponsored commentary. Private interests payed for some of the letters to be published. That makes them poisonous fruit and good reason for the papers to never be discussed as a basses for constitutional law in ANY court. 
    The papers were never voted on or signed by the Continental Congress and never should be discussed as legal doctrine.  
    Anthony Scalia will be remembered as another political hack for RW profiteers.

  • I truly believe that we all…. are ending up punished!
    Look at the way Obama spends money…. do you think that we will ever recover?

  • Have you ever been to China, do you wonder why they all want to come to the US? Your user name is Mo Money, under socialism you will be called Less money

  • “it completely failed” i dont know how you could possibly say that, considering most of the act doesnt start til 2014.

    “that is where my biggest problem with this plan is” 100% agree.

    “They should attack costs” costs are high because of insurance profits and care to the uncovered (hospitals raise prices to compensate this ‘free’ care, which raises premiums)…Obamacare will greatly reduce said ‘free care’ at least, but there’s still the insurance profits.

  • The reason health insurance companies are pulling out of health exchanges is because they have LOST MILLIONS its not because they “cant make a lot of money” its cause they cant make ANY money.

  • So far this law is expected to cost the US at least $1 trillion, and if you go to healthcare.gov, you will see that they won’t tell you the prices very easily. Instead they will not give you an estimate even close to what you really will be spending. Furthermore, people who can’t afford it will still not be able to afford it, and premiums for people who do have healthcare are going up, meaning more people will not be able to afford it.

  • “Here are all these data backed solutions but our politicians are too idiotic and too busy bickering to implement them” That’s depressing.

  • you’re mistaken, Nancy Pelosi said “you have to pass the bill before you can read the bil” and sellout REPubicants bought that line of crap

  • Repealing the ACA and returning to the status quo wouldn’t help. But repealing the ACA and opening up those state borders to competition WOULD.

  • I love how they don’t mention the outrageous deductibles that go with the cheaper plans that most of the newly insured will have to buy. The deductibles are so high that the vast majority of newly insured will either never exceed them in a given year (so the insurance companies pay nothing) or they simply won’t be able to afford to pay them.

  • I thought the entire point of the ACA WAS to bring healthier individuals (young people who can’t afford insurance) into the risk pool.

  • OK, I started to look up this subject because I constantly hear people talking about it and I like to be informed, regardless that I live across an ocean, in a different country. What motivates me is to learn from other people/countries, in hopes of enlightening my own.

    What I get from this video is that the program attempts to temper money grabbing insurance companies attitudes, make medical care more efficient, but the drawback is everyone has to buy health insurance. Even those who don’t need it. In a recession economy or recovery.

    One thing that video kinda fails to mention is the price of these new health insurance policies, or maybe I missed it. But it sounds they will be more expensive, at least in the beginning.

    Is there a way to level the play-field, maintain these good changes but not make medical insurance mandatory? In my view at least, yeah its a bit unconstitutional to make me purchase something I don’t want/need.

  • Health care is not an ordinary market, idiots. When you’re sick you don’t have either the mind or the leisure to go shopping around for the best deal.
    Also, can you remind me how your hands-off approach is going to keep the pharma companies from gouging us to their heart’s content?
    Libertarianism = adolescenthood of political thought.

  • Ya goofy your a moron. Nobody is ever denied treatment. But under the ACA they can be. Someone please explain to me why a 65 yr old single man should have to have insurance that covers pregnancy and pediatric dental?this would be like the federal government dictates that every new car sold has to have under coating moon roof, and leather seats whether you want them or not. Then wonder why the car costs more and the govt says its because they’re greedy. And you call us brainwashed. Drone.

  • Claiming “studies show” without citing any studies at all regarding a politically sensitive topic is bad form in general, it is especially bad form for a channel that has built it’s brand by citing it’s research. Considering I can hop over to the Cato blog and get a half dozen reputable studies that demonstrate the medicaid expansion has the opposite affects of what you claim I have to question how impartial you are being on the topic of insurance.

  • Just returned to the states after 6 years in Japan. Missing the great national insurance, PPO-style openness, and spending less than $100 on an MRI. Looking forward to voting for a similar system in the U.S. at every opportunity possible.

  • Health INSURANCE companies do not CARE for patients, they mitigate cost risks. You put your money in their pool, and if you end up needing some money to cover costs they pre-negotiate lower rates with hospitals and cover costs (after copays and deductibles). They make money by #1 charging more overall than they pay out, and #2 investing the money to get a bigger return. Now that government is going to take back their profits, they will simply hide their earnings in ‘bad investments.’

  • One thing seems to be a lack of health individuals. My understanding is that there is a disproportionate number of people with existing health problems getting their insurance from the exchanges as opposed to an employer. Would it be likely to improve the options in the exchange if a greater segment of the population had to use the exchanges instead of getting insurance through their employer?

  • I truly believe…. that CARE will never be affordable!
    It’s a Hocus Pocus!
    The governments job… is to make a piece of shit look great!

  • Dr. Carroll pointed out some fixes that would improve the ACA. He also pointed out that the current political system is incapable of acting to pass these fixes. We have an election in a few weeks. Please consider voting for the candidates that would help improve the current health care system and bring wider coverage to the public.

  • and also I barely notice the taxes cause they are a part of life! I grew up paying them from the beginning so it doesnt affect me cause it’s just always been there! I honestly don’t think its alot. Think about you’re kids, nephews, nieces and stop being selfish! Money over life? We argue about Bankers not caring yet you would choose keeping a small tax over peoples lives???

  • Yeah, we need to turn healthcare over to the very industries that drove up the cost to begin with. Libertarians are like three year olds on an intellectual level. These idiots like to pretend we never had affordable healthcare after the big bad government got involved. It’s really pathetic. Tell me why there are government healthcare programs in Europe that are over 50 years old and more successful than The United States healthcare system. That’s right, you can’t. Before you start spewing some bullshit about population, tell me what the per capita cost is.
