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.
