Ohioans can now enroll in Obama’s health care plan

Ohioans can now start shopping for health insurance that’s a key piece of the Obama administration’s Affordable Care Act.

The new law requires almost everyone to have health insurance. With Tuesday’s launch, consumers are able to search for health coverage options.

Ohio is leaving it up to the federal government to run the state’s health insurance exchange where people can buy coverage.

Health care providers and other organizations that serve the poor will be out promoting “Obamacare” to 1.5 million uninsured Ohioans. But some groups in the state that received federal dollars to hire people to walk applicants through the process say it will be weeks before they’re ready.

Consumers have until mid-December to sign up if they want coverage by the first of the year.

we won't need healthcare when we might not have jobs tomorrow, or food to eat. the government is closing. get your supplies stocked now.

Don't you like it when the Cons blow something up and act like they didn't do it. Like little kids caught it the act but still say I didn't do it, wahhhhhhhh.

I think little kids behave better than these cons. At least mine did! They just cannot accept DEFEAT!

Re: "They just cannot accept DEFEAT!"

Why can you?

And the Progressives just cannot accept forcing ALL Americans into their authoritarian-totalitarian ideology.

Not to worry Bambie, your SSDI and Medicaid benefits are OK for now.

Millions are trying to access the site. Hopefully all those who need insurance will be able to get it. Those living from paycheck to paycheck may find it easier to pay low premiums then to pay for office visits or to miss work due to illness because they can't afford a doctor visit.

Re: "can't afford a doctor visit."

One of the MAJOR fallacies of Obama☭are:

Having health insurance does not automatically guarantee access to quality care.

tk

You aren't automatically guaranteed access to quality care no matter what insurance you have. You get what the insurance company says you can have. I meant what I said about can't afford a doctor visit. I have a local doctor and my visits are a minimum of $175. Most are over $200. Without insurance I could certainly not afford them.

Re: "Without insurance I could certainly not afford them"

Just expect your insurance premiums to rise with Obama☭are.

Don't you ever get tired of spreading these lies? I understand you get paid pretty well by FreedomWorks for it, but still it must be tiring. And it is cute how they taught you to put the hammer and sickle in there!

Re: "hammer and sickle"

Like it huh? Came up with it myself.

So Obama☭are ain't the beginning of socialized health care?

If it's such great sh*t, why do the Democrat *ssclowns need to force everyone to get insurance or they penalize 'em?

Did you sign up on the exchanges?

shucks

Re: "hammer and sickle"

@ Judge-Mental:

What??? you wanna see me naked? Well, it ain't gonna happen.

shucks

LOL !

Come on, show him a little.
He failed with his attempt to impress with an intellectual "sounding" put- down.

deertracker

No he does not get tired of spreading lies. He is a miserable doom and gloom kind of guy! Has to be a terrible way to live on a daily basis!

I don't have any premiums. I have insurance through a union. Bet you like that, don't you?

Contango

Re: "I have insurance through a union."

Lucky you. Public or private?

So why do think that Obama☭are is so great if you're not affected by it?

BTW: It WILL affect your health benefits eventually.

tk

So why do think that Obama☭are is so great if you're not affected by it?

Because I know people who are uninsured and I care for them. I am not so selfish that if it doesn't affect me, I don't care. I care much for those less fortunate then me. They are not lazy worthless people. Maybe you haven't noticed from your elevated position, but poor people do the dirtiest, hardest jobs out there.

Contango

Re: "Because I know people who are uninsured and I care for them."

Good for you.

So you think that they'll be able to afford those "affordable" health ins. exchange premiums with little-to-no disposable income?

Again: Public or private union?

Dirty, hot and sweaty; know it well. Worked in factories and elsewhere to help pay for college.

The Big Dog's back

pooh, sounds like you want to raise the minimum wage. Good for you.

deertracker

For the LAST time pooh, the ACA was passed in the HOUSE and SENATE, signed into law by our President then upheld by SCOTUS! THEN our President Barack Hussein Obama campaigned for reelection highlighting this particular issue and WON! What's the problem LOSER? You need rehab immediately and stay the course this time!
