Number of Kansans who signed up for insurance through marketplace exceeds government's expectations

The jury is still out on if this Obamacare will be a success. 8 million have signed up which would be considered a success. The contractor for Obamacare wants $121.00 million to fix the backend of the website. Much more money than planned. Also, Oregon took a lot of federal tax dollars to set up a state ran exchange that never enrolled anyone. Now, Oregon is planning to use the Federal exchange. Will Oregon have to pay back those federal dollars? Will doctors and hospitals have to take a hit on people they cover that hasn't kept up on premiums? I know people that benefit from this new health care law but I also know people that are hurt by this new law.
After, the first year how many will pay the fine? How many that signed up on the exchange will owe the IRS because the amount of tax subsidies they received was to much based on their income? The example I'm thinking of is the person gets a raise or better job that puts them into a higher income level.

White supremacist identified as suspect in fatal shootings at Jewish center, retirement complex

This is a gut wrenching story. I pray for all the families dealing with this tragedy and my Church family. Pastor Hamilton did let all Church members know about this act of evil. I heard Pastor Hamilton speak about love on the radio this morning KCMO. We lost two members that are with are heavenly Father. Praying for the family of the women/girl also.

Letter: Can’t keep up

The White House and HHS spent much of your money on ads promoting ObamaCare. The Washington Free Beacon article by Elizabeth Harrington indicated that $700 million was spent. President Obama indicted that he didn't, "hard sale" ObamaCare. I wonder if the Koch brothers enjoyed their tax dollars being spent by the President?

Letter: Obamacare benefits

The cost of this law at this point from my understanding is $80 million just on the web site. Don't think we America's can continue to spend when the Chinese call in the loan. Spending money we don't have becomes a problem at some point.

Obamacare is 'actuarially unsound,' Jenkins argues in Baldwin City

Obama quietly added another exemption according to Fox News. (14) You experienced another hardship in obtaining health insurance. Why would he veto Lynn Jenkins bill when he just did what her bill was suggesting.

Obamacare is 'actuarially unsound,' Jenkins argues in Baldwin City

The feds are looking into a second state ran exchange. Oregon and Maryland are being questioned about possible fraud allegations into their exchanges. How many tax dollars have been wasted on these roll outs? This isn't about the rich and poor but poor management.

Obamacare is 'actuarially unsound,' Jenkins argues in Baldwin City

The government say's 3 or 4 million have signed up. The government won't say 15% haven't even paid the first month's insurance premium. The line that it's the price of your cell phone bill was a lie in my case. All plans I looked at an the marketplace exchange was $300 to $400 a month. Twenty seven Democrats voted in favor of delaying the individual mandate in the house.
