The Obamacare Deception
California and Oregon both released proposed rates for health insurance through their state exchanges last week.
The left immediately started crowing and praising Obamacare, pointing and saying “see, we told you rates would be low!”
One person even commented on a friend’s Facebook page:
“Sort of makes you wonder (rhetorically) why the GOP tried 37 times to repeal the Affordable Healthcare Act.”
The man has either not been paying attention, or not reading this blog.
According to this, the cheapest plan I will be able to get is $195 a month. I put emphasis on the word proposed, because as we all know when dealing with anything where the government is concerned, there is a huge difference between what is proposed and what is reality.
At the end of the year, I will be unemployed again. My health insurance rates will go up 60% on the healthcare exchange, assuming I am eligible to do so, since my wife gets health insurance through her work. That’s just for barebones coverage. The amount I currently pay for better insurance is much less than the exchange rate.
A sixty percent increase for a law that was supposed to bring healthcare costs down.
The only thing this administration is good at is costing us, the citizens, more money.
However, Forbes magazine includes an analysis of California’s proposed rates, and they say that premiums will go up as much as 146%.
What it comes down to is the law was designed to force young people into the insurance market to subsidize seniors and illegal immigrants who should not have access to anything in this country, except the door to show them back out of the country.
By being unemployed again next year, and being reduced to a single income family, how are we supposed to survive when we have a government gun to our head saying that we will spend that money one way or another, either by purchasing insurance or paying the IRS, who will be in charge of enforcing Obamacare.
This country became what it was by the government staying out of our business and letting us live our lives. It is on the decline because government is all in our business about everything. Under the guise of keeping us healthy, they are taking more power for themselves and inserting themselves into our lives on the belief that we can’t take care of ourselves, though we’ve done very well for the past 200 years, thank you very much.
I am one of those individuals who falls in the hole. Not low income enough to have taxpayers pay my insurance for me, but not high income enough to pay for it.
What was that about you wanting a thriving Middle Class, Mr. Obama?
Part of this came about because people complained that those who went to the emergency room ended up causing their insurance rates to go up.
Now, their rates are going to go up to pay for insurance for those same people that they were complaining about.
Be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it.
