    The Liar-In-Chief outdid himself with his salesman job on pushing Obamacare down our throats. How many times did he push that $2500 per year savings bullshit? What is painfully obvious now is the Affordable Care Act was NEVER intended to do anything to make health care affordable, or even try to reduce costs. It was PURELY to expand healthcare to the neediest Americans and illegal immigrants. And don't think for a minute that illegals are refused healthcare. Medicaid plays all kinds of games with the states to get them covered.

    So if you are one of those retirees who get to go back to work because your healthcare costs are eating up your pensions, just remember who lied to you in order to get government control of your healthcare. That would be Barrack Hussein Obama, the most damaging President in American history.

    Wait a second. If you are over 65 you are on Medicare, so the cost of health insurance is VERY REASONABLE. If you are under 65, then who said you could retire early? Somebody else?

    Bullshit.

    People go back to work for a lot of reasons, but the high cost of health insurance ain't one of them.

    Not if you are on a low fixed income. We have a 91 year old lady and we have been helping her with her medical costs for over 6 years now. She can't work, obviously, so the only way she could stay in her home is if we helped pay her medical costs. Otherwise Medicare places her in a group home and sells off all of her assets to pay for it.

    Why does most of the World pay less for healthcare with their government spending, and all of the World pays less in totals of out of pocket + government spending?

    The rabble of Brits who liter the U.S.A obviously aren't very logical, they're actually being screwed overall.

    They still have access to healthcare? Trump's not doing his job then.

    All the retirees I know that have unwillingly returned to work have done so because their adult children have been reinfantilized and gone home to be supported by elderly parents.

    Medicare doesn't place anyone in a group home. Maybe Medicaid does but not Medicare.
