Wheels coming off Obama Care

Well, you knew it was coming, that is, if you weren’t foolish enough to vote for this guy. Insurance benefits are growing through the roof and this coming January millions of Americans are going to have their benefits dropped by there employers and will have to go to the public exchange. What does that mean? That means some unelected, faceless bureaucrats are going to tell you to crawl into a hole and die and that there is nothing wrong with you in order to save money (see this post for how they’ll do it).

So, when January of 2014 hits get ready, there’s a good chance you’re going to get kicked to the curb by your company. Who can blame them? I’d rather just pay the fine too if I was a company owner and drop my employee’s coverage rather than get entangled in the Obama Care nightmare. That is, after all, what Obama Care was designed to do (eliminate private insurance). Once you’re on government health care trust me, you are no longer free, you are owned. Your health records will be used against you not to mention that you will be weighed in a “cost / benefit” approach as to whether you’re worth saving or not. Plus, there is a bonus paid to hospitals in the Obama Health Care plan if they keep their costs low. You don’t have to be a genius to figure out what that means.

Make no doubt about it, insurance premiums are going through the roof and millions are going to lose their current coverage and be dumped onto the government exchange. And I have even more news for you, all estimates now point to this government plan costing around 20,000 per year for a family of five, and you have no choice, it’s a law, you HAVE to buy it.

So, it’s starting already.

Companies planning to drop spouses from coverage due to Obama Care Impact:
Why your boss is dumping your wife ( <== click me)

By denying coverage to spouses, employers not only save the annual premiums, but also the new fees that went into effect as part of the Affordable Care Act. This year, companies have to pay $1 or $2 “per life” covered on their plans, a sum that jumps to $65 in 2014. And health law guidelines proposed recently mandate coverage of employees’ dependent children (up to age 26), but husbands and wives are optional.

ObamaCare policies will cost more, cover far fewer than promised:
Wheels coming off ( <== click me)

The central parts of ObamaCare don’t roll out until 2014, but the wheels are already falling off this clunker. The latest news from four federal agencies is that

1) Insurance will be a lot less affordable than Americans were led to expect,
2) Fewer people than promised will get insurance and
3) Millions of people who have coverage through a job now will lose it, thanks to the president’s “reforms.” Oh, and children are the biggest victims.

The Affordable Care Act is looking less and less affordable.

Start with the IRS’s new estimate for what the cheapest family plan will cost by 2016: $20,000 a year to cover two adults and three kids. And that will only cover 60 percent of medical bills, so add hefty out-of-pocket costs, too.

Nor will these parents be penalized for not insuring their children — the IRS will kindly consider the kids exempt from the mandate.

So, this may be rather un-Christian of me but I’m going to say it anyway. We’re all going to suffer, become wards of the state, and be introduced to the biggest, most costly, worst performing health care system in the world, and I am going to take a certain pleasure watching all these idiots who voted for this man masquerading as a leader suffer as well. I knew from the get-go what he was up to, even my wife didn’t believe me, but now she does without a doubt. And so do more and more people every day. But wait until 2014 kicks in, that’s when the fun starts. If you’re offended by me calling Obama voters idiots you’re going to have to turn the other cheek on this one, you’ll get no sympathy from me.

    I wonder how many people will leave this country ,I mean the people who are able to leave will leave . Maybe he read the BOOK!! How to destroy the USA , This latest tax hike that was only for the rich has cost my other half 367$ a month extra in her check. She has calculated the gas hike and the tax hike will cost close to 6000$ extra a year. We can afford a hit like that but what about a family with kids. How much can we take … Sometimes I wish I had some rose colored glasses and that 1/2 full glass to help me through the day.

  2. Good for you, Mr Common Sense, I have been on this soap box for months now. We are in very serious trouble when it comes to healthcare. Having insurance does not guarantee you health care now. I have a $ 7500.00 per yr deductible and a $ 325.00 monthy premium. I cannot afford to go to the Dr, have no co-pay for the Dr or RX. Add to that they refuse to recognize Morgellons so what is the use.
    This president we have is running this country in the ground.

  3. Paranoia at it’s finest! I bet you believed that their were weapons of mass destruction too!

      If you don’t believe me maybe you’ll believe Obama’s health care Architect from MIT, who has changed his mind and says in fact, premiums are going to go up by 39% or more, in some cases 100%. But you’ll find out in 2014 so believe what you want now, you can hold onto that myth for 10 more months before reality sets in.

      In 2009, during the height of the debate over Obamacare, the law’s architect, MIT economist Jonathan Gruber, was all over the op-ed pages, talking about how the bill would reduce the cost of health insurance. “What we know for sure,” he told Ezra Klein, “is that [the bill] will lower the cost of buying non-group health insurance.”

      Before the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act became law, Gruber published a widely-cited analysis, using his Gruber Microsimulation Model, in which he asserted that in 2016, young people would save 13 percent, and older people 31 percent, on their insurance premiums.

      Gruber now: Obamacare will increase premiums by 19-30 percent

      As states began the process of considering whether or not to set up the insurance exchanges mandated by the new health law, several retained Gruber as a consultant. In at least three cases—Wisconsin in August 2011, Minnesota in November 2011, and Colorado in January 2012 — Gruber reported that premiums in the individual market would increase, not decrease, as a result of Obamacare.

      In Wisconsin, Gruber reported that people purchasing insurance for themselves on the individual market would see, on average, premium increases of 30 percent by 2016, relative to what would have happened in the absence of Obamacare. In Minnesota, the law would increase premiums by 29 percent over the same period. Colorado was the least worst off, with premiums under the law rising by only 19 percent.

      THE GUY THAT WROTE THE DAMN LAW AN SAID WE “KNOW FOR SURE“, NOW HE SAYS THEY’RE GOING TO GO UP AND UP …

      So we were promised 31% reduction in cost, but now in some cases it’s going to rise 39%, so, hey, it’s only a minor 80% difference right, and I have 80% of my income to throw away on government run health care, you’re in for a rude awaking and when the outcries come, and oh they are coming, I’m going to sit back and smile at those who thought government was going to make their lives better, oh it’s going to be painful in 2014, trust me.
