Hand Out Hungry Obama Voters The Looters are Restless.: "Where Do We Get the Free ObamaCare?"
Two weeks after President Barack Obama signed the big health care overhaul into law, Americans are struggling to understand how — and when — the sweeping measure will affect them.
Questions reflecting confusion have flooded insurance companies, doctors' offices, human resources departments and business groups.
"They're saying, 'Where do we get the free Obama care, and how do I sign up for that?' " said Carrie McLean, a licensed agent for eHealthInsurance.com. The California-based company sells coverage from 185 health insurance carriers in 50 states.McLean said the call center had been inundated by uninsured consumers who were hoping that the overhaul would translate into instant, affordable coverage. That widespread misconception may have originated in part from distorted rhetoric about the legislation bubbling up from the hyper-partisan debate about it in Washington and some media outlets, such as when opponents denounced it as socialism.
"We tell them it's not free, that there are going to be things in place that help people who are low-income, but that ultimately most of that is not going to be taking place until 2014," McLean said.
Wild Thing's comment........
These people aren’t just stupid, they’re weapons grade stupid. This is what happens when one’s base is intellectually and morally flatline.
When these creeps call up asking about their obamacare, they should tell them......“I have no idea—you’d better call the White House.”
On the other side, the people that LOVE our country.....
Even with Minnesota and Wisconsin’s Democratic Attorneys General opting to side with the feds rather than defend state sovereignty, the decision to fight ObamaCare in the courts over federal encroachment has become popular. With the addition of five states today, the count has now reached 18 states that will demand action in court to stop the enforcement of the individual mandate, among other matters: The joint lawsuit led by Florida and now grouping 18 states was filed on March 23. It claims the sweeping reform of the $2.5 trillion healthcare system violates state-government rights in the U.S. Constitution and will force massive new spending on hard-pressed state governments.
South Carolina, Nebraska, Texas, Utah, Louisiana, Alabama, Colorado, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Washington, Idaho, and South Dakota had previously joined Florida’s lawsuit.
“We welcome the partnership of Indiana, North Dakota, Mississippi, Nevada and Arizona as we continue fighting to protect the constitutional rights of American citizens and the sovereignty of our states,” Bill McCollum said.

These are the kind of people who could care less about this nation. All they want is free stuff and government handouts.

I remember hearing the leftie looney media saying that this would all be free. So, where's my free insurance card? Now, my leftie friends are saying Fox News made that all up and that it isn't going to be free after all. So what good is it then? They are such hypocrites.

Two Amendments the Tea Party needs to concentrate on. The Second and the Tenth. I expext several other states including Oklahoma will join the states sovereignty lawsuit.
As for free obamacare, dream on. The dummies that think they now have free and immediate healthcare are being shocked that it is not so. For those that do work, the tax bill is coming sooner than the "free" obumacare.

or, as Peggy Joseph put it,
"I won't have to worry about putting gas in my car, I won't have to worry about paying my mortgage, you know, if I help him, he's gonna help me."
They're going to be mad when the find out the Tooth Fairy isn't real either.

These people are living in a fantasy world. Regardless who they are there is no free lunch. They won't have to pay for it directly but in the end they will pay. Whether it be with money or their Liberty but they will pay.
In a conversation with my Sister-in-law, something was said about Workmans Compensation, the first words out of her mouth, " why can't the government do something about it." And this is the whole problem. This mind set that somebody else should have to pay for it. But when all is said and done, we all pay for it. The government is not some isolated 'Rich' entity, the government exist because every American pays taxes. They seem to think the government has its own money, We are that part of the government.
