Obamacare Laid Bare

Posted by on Nov 01, 2013 at 9:04 am

So a law designed to cover the uninsured is now throwing far more people off their insurance than it can possibly be signing up on the nonfunctioning insurance exchanges. Indeed, most of the 19 million people with individual insurance will have to find new and likely more expensive coverage. And that doesn’t even include the additional millions who are sure to lose their employer-provided coverage. That’s a lot of people. That’s a pretty big lie.

But perhaps Obama didn’t know. Maybe the bystander president was as surprised by this as he claims to have been by the IRS scandal, the Associated Press and James Rosen phone logs, the failure of the Obamacare Web site, the premeditation of the Benghazi attacks, the tapping of Angela Merkel’s phone — i.e., the workings of the federal government of which he is the nominal head.

Full story.

One Response to “Obamacare Laid Bare”

    I have been on group health insurance since May of 2008, six months into my current job. At that time, my monthly premium was $49, and office visit co-pays were $10. Then,in 2009, when Obamacare was just being talked over in Congress and bragged about by the Leftist dogs at the top, my premium suddenly doubled. It increased again and again, at last hit $150 last year, my office visit copay went to $15, and for the first time, I had thousand-dollar deductibles. In 2011, I was actually without insurance for a month, I had reached the “annual limit” after having 2 skin cancer surgeries, but I was still paying the monthly premium. That was scary, I have some medical issues and need 4 prescriptions. Luckily, I am a Costco member, and they sold me my prescriptions dirt cheap since I was technically uninsured. Late last year, I was notified, along with everyone else in the agency, that my plan would not be available after January 1,2014, and I would have to choose between “these plans”. My husband is retiring, so I decided to go for the best coverage I could possibly afford, so I am now paying $192 per month, which is about 10% of my GROSS income, AND I have deductibles of $3,000 and $5,000. My husband is now retired, and I am no longer covered on his policy, effective the end of October. Obama was either lying, or stating what he THOUGHT was the case without bothering to consult with anyone who actually worked in or understood the workings of the medical insurance system. Was he dishonest, or mentally lazy and incompetent? He has displayed all of those qualities in his regime, but I would go with dishonest, he has SO much wanted to cram his Obama apathy down our throats “by any means necessary”, and of course lying is one of the “necessary means” to gull the low information segment of the voting population.
    I know I am darn lucky compared to the poor guys paying thousands a MONTH for insurance, but this is HARD with an income of around 20 grand a year.
