How is the Obama Health care going to effect people?

on welfare?? We tax payers support them now...so the government is going to figure out what they are going to pay, or get FREE once again on the money they get free from us tax payers??? There are so many drug addicts in our neighborhood....how will this effect them? FREE right? they walk in off the street, or are arrested by cops....wired for sound, they are taken care of by a lot of us that don't have medical, just for them to be released to load up again?? 17 doors were kicked in, around our neighborhood last week, know druggies caught on cameras...if and when they are arrested, and they broke in when people were gone...to steal anything attached to get money for their habit, some ending up in the hospital WE pay for, the home owner paid for their care...just for these pieces of crap to society to get turned loose again, to keep repeating break ins, trip to the hospital....??

    the affordable health care act will save the taxpayer money . the only people who hate it are the crooked doctors and greedy health insurance companies who would not be able to scam the system as bad as they are now .

    With the way the affordable care act is currently set, it leaves a lot to the states to control including the approach of the federal exchange where individuals will be able to buy health insurance. Those that are below the poverty level will get a tax credit to help them purchase insurance on the exchange. The exchange will be open for enrollment starting in October 2013, for an effective date of January 1, 2014 Those that are eligible for medicare and medicaid will still continue using that system. The Federal government has asked the state to expand their medicare amd medicaid system. They are covering 100% of the cost of the individuals picked up through the extension until 2016, after which they will only cover 90% of the cost.

    It depends on the state. Some states are refusing to except the increased medicaid load. Medicaid is run by the states not the federal government. When you apply for Medicaid you do it at your state welfare office. In the beginning the federal government is paying for the increased Medicaid load but the states are smart enough to know this won't last for ever. In time a greater and greater part of this money will have to come from the states budget. A number of states are already broke.

    It wont affect anyone who has Medicaid. It expands Medicaid for more people.
