Skip to comments.Wheels coming off... ObamaCare policies will cost more, cover far fewer than promised

The Affordable Care Act is looking less and less affordable.
Start with the IRSs 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.
The next surprise is for parents who thought their kids would be covered by an employer. Sloppy wording in the law left that unclear until last week, when the IRS ruled that kids wont be covered.
Starting in 2014, the law will require employers with 50 or more full-time employees to offer coverage or pay a penalty. Affordable coverage, that is meaning the employee cant be told to contribute more than 9.5 percent of his salary. For example, a worker earning $40,000 a year cannot be required to pay more than $3.800.
But the law doesnt specifically mandate family coverage and now the administration says that wont be required.

It doesn’t matter if ANYONE gets health care benefits or how many.... the people who launched this monstrosity will STILL stuff their pockets and we will still be virtual serfs to the ‘fed’... and that is all it’s been about anyway!
As I am typing this I am listening to a news story about Sandy victims seeing a huge new property tax increase.
There is going to be a revolt, I suspect. I’m so glad I moved out of the blue county and state.
Even a loyal Democrat would admit that this would happen.
It’s only that 25% of lunatics who continue to make excuses.
Yes, the media is included into that 25%.
There are going to be a LOT of 49 employee businesses out there, some of which are 55 or 59 employee companies now, if you get my drift. ;-)
Gawd this is going to get ugly.
The wheels won’t come off Obama Care. The wheels will come off the taxpayers.
We went through all this turmoil for that?
When libtards realize that obamacare is a failure, they will just switch to nationalized socialized medicine which is what they wanted in the first place.
So far things are going just as planned.
It was intended to fail.
The goal is single government payer for healthcare.
How can a ‘statutory law’ usurp the ‘supreme law of the land’???
google “Voluntary Compliance”.
That was so yesterday. It’s on to illegal aliens and a free ride to brokeville now/sarc. Besides, they were only off by what, 880 BILLION?
All part of the plan... Millions will lose coverage and the “solution” will be single payer system...completely by design.
But that will increase the deficit even more. Likely why Obama's been saying lately the deficit really isn't a problem.
It’s designed to fail.
That way they can replace it,
With something much worse.
Yeah, he’s got a bigger goal of crashing the country so it can be remade.
Did the a$$hole$ who voted democrat really think that there could be free health insurance for all and that no one would have to pay?
This monstrosity is obviously about giving “free” health insurance to the “poor” and “oppressed” and making those eeevvvvilll “oppressor” productive hard-working citizens pay for it.
What a mess.
Someone said he thought that 0 was trying to destroy the country. I said no. I just changed my mind.
What I can’t understand is why people seem to be having such a hard time seeing this. There’s no point in focussing on the details of who is covered, who isn’t, and what it really winds up costing, when the point of it was always to get us to nationalised healthcare a la Europe. The even bigger point of it, and other legislation, is wealth redistribution from the makers to the takers. It all ties together and then leads to that one thing. Disarming us is also part of that, to disable us from being able to protect ourselves and our property.
The even bigger picture, when you look at it from a distance, is one-world government.
