Skip to comments.Obamacare Facebook Erupts with Citizen Sticker Shock
Posted on 10/04/2013 11:40:30 AM PDT by grundle
On Thursday, the government's official Obamacare Facebook page was riddled with people expressing sticker shock over the government's high cost premiums after struggling for hours to wade through the technical failures vexing Obamacare exchanges all across the country.
"I am so disappointed," wrote one woman. "These prices are outrageous and there are huge deductibles. No one can afford this!" The comment received 169 "likes."
"There is NO WAY I can afford it," said one commenter after using the Kaiser Subsidy Calculator. "Heck right now I couldn't afford an extra 10$ [sic] a month...and oh apparently I make to [sic] much at 8.55/hour to get subsidies."

Told ya'll so!!!!!!..................
I’ll bet 99.99% of these people voted for the lying POS.
We told you so.
It’s like the realization some of my Soak the Rich friends have they finally figure out that the people they voted for think that my friends are part of the Rich. Median income isn’t a very high figure, and most make more than that. (Maybe not more than mean income, which is a bit higher)
Keep voting Dim and we will force your neighbor to pay for your healthcare.
That’s fair, right? You want what they work for. Vote Dim and we’ll take it from them by force.
I have no sympathy for these people who vote to rob their neighbor.
Ustoopidsunzabeeches thought it was gonna be free, didn’t ya...
"When Bush rammed this Affordable Healthcare law through, I argued against it. Now, we must all stand together to pass a new bill that will fix these things I inherited."
Their tears taste so delicious!
I feel the same way as you. Not only do they vote to rob their neighbor, they call you selfish, greedy and radical for not loving it when you are robbed!
Well, we tried to tell ya. Enjoy your "free" government healthcare . . . . . . . . . . morons!!
And the sheeperals would all say “yaaaa, Bush is Baa aaa aaa d”.
To all those affected who voted LIB/DIM/RINO... Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am sure they all were for Obamacare...who else would 'like' that page on Facebook?

They must have a few hundred interns in the WH PURGING these from the site.
But, since we all like our moments, I would like one to congratulate Sarah Palin on the naming of the "death panels". She was excoriated; but, it only took a couple of days before the Senate Majority Leader is asking why he should care about a child with cancer. Think about that folks, a couple of days and already a child with cancer is subject to the whims of the political theater.
People will keep voting Dim as long is the oposition is the likes of McCain and Romney. Blame the RINO globalist elitists, not “the people”.
The GOP should keep repeating what Obama said. Obama said if you like your doctor and health plan you could keep it. Obama also said that healthcare premiums would drop $2500 for an average family.
As Obamacare takes root, many will see that this is a costly bureaucratic system, and a system which does not benefit them. Against this backdrop, Obama is decreeing Congress and other favored parties get waivers. Only the average citizen has to foot the bill.
The cost is too high! The only option is single payer health insurance, but it will cost the same. And, since no good jobs are around and you are totally dependent on the government, we are opening government housing for the masses. Walls will enclose the housing complexes, but citizens will be free to roam within the walls. Everyone will be happy with their daily ration of “soma” and soylent green. How could anyone reject such a wonderful future? Of course we in the government will make sacrifices and live outside the compounds, existing only on natural foods and the hard work of subjects - I mean fellow citizens.
And you know what? hussein doesn’t give a damn.
Dear Leslie: elections have consequences, you nitwit.
And there won't be any doctors to treat you. They're all going to move to Costa Rica.
1. I sign on to either a state or federal exchange on December 31st, 2013 and hopefully before New Years Eve is over, I have successfully enrolled in Obamacare.
2. Beginning in January, 2014 I will send in a monthly premium determined by the type of plan I have selected ..anywhere from $195.00 to $1400.00.
3. Then, every time I receive healthcare I will pay an out of pocket expense (a deductible) up to between $3000.00 and $8,000.00 each year.
4. Once I reach the deductible for that year, I only have to make a copay amount that could be between $10.00 and 200.00.
5. Now the good news. Lets assume I am eligible for some subsidies. To receive those subsidies I will only have to wait until I file my federal or state income tax during the first three months of 2015.
Please feel free to add to or correct this process if you feel dont have it quite right. My only disclaimer is the dollar amounts are for illustrative purposes only and the real amounts will vary based on the type of plan you select and individual demographic factors.
If you know what your numbers will be, you might want to post on it FR along with some of your demographics and then send it to your 2 senators and representative.
Harry Reid is a one man Death Panel and he looks the part.
I think you are allowed to estimate your pay and therefore subsidy each month because one of the warnings was that if your pay increased during the year (and therefore subsidy dropped) you would be expected to repay the difference with your taxes.
“Pound away at the: deductibles & out-of-pocket...”
And, dental and vision.
Many current plans have provisions for those. Usually not much, but every little bit helps with teeth and eyes.
That's the plan!
Once enough people complain about the cost/deductible, the Dems will try to force through Congress a bill to subsidize the whole thing ("It's for the children!!").
Standard Dem modus operandi: start something, claim a low price cost to implement it, make it an entitlement (no can touch!), then force the gub'mint to pay for the whole thing (or as much as they can force through at a time).
It was never about the turnips. It was always about their blood.
I will never forgive people that voted for this punk. NEVER!
I would assume if anyone still has a job it will be automatically deducted from their paycheck.
How can it be *we* knew about it, and none of them did? Are they that willfully ignorant?
Yearly deductibles of around $5000 before any coverage kicks in, and co-pays from 10% - 40% after that for covered services.
The lowest priced plan, bronze, has a $5000 deductible and co-pays of 40%!
It might only cost a 27 yr old $130 a month, but they couldn’t afford to use it!
What would it cost that person for a $10,000 broken leg?
$130 x 12 months = $1560
yearly deductible $5000
But you can’t forget the 40% co-pay on your share of the remaining $5000 on the bill after you paid your $5000 yearly deductible.
That is another $2000 for a grand total of $8560 on that $10,000 doctor bill.
Since chances are you won’t be breaking a leg every year, one would have to be a dimwit to buy that insurance.
We told you so!
If it is going to be automatically deducted it will have less impact than having to write a check. I hope employers itemize it in bold caps on the pay stub.
You could be right. More chance of fraud. But what does obama or the democrats care.
Ahhhh ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!!!
Which low info voters thought that the GOVERNMENT could anything run well or cheaper?!?!
That site is a riot. Free market works. Soviet style socialism, NOT SO MUCH!!
First of all, the people can’t get into the website, still. It’s been three days. Just to see what their premiums would be! They can’t even get in!! If that doesn’t tell you how things are going to look when you are on your couch watching Jon Stewart and suddenly have excruciating chest pains and need to call the ObamaCare wagon, nothing else ever will!! THIS IS YUR FIRST CLUE, LIBS!
Then, they are moaning at how their employer’s plan is half the cost! ObamaCare is going to be prohibitively expensive. If they earned just a little less, they could get it for free! Hmmm. Why work so hard??????
Looks like we’re going to party like it’s 1979! In Soviet Russia!
How many people do you think will write that check? The feds will have to confiscate it, I mean deduct it, if they want the money.
Life has consequences. If you can’t afford basic necessities, get another job, get married or find other family or friends to help you. Those people are able to have you do something for them in return for the help they give you. It’s not the taxpayer’s job to foot your bills while we get nothing in return.
“Kaiser Subsidy Calculator”
I smell something fishy?
he he he.....two full election cycles, and all any of ‘em heard was “free”.
Reap the whirlwind, Barry!
Love your breakdown!
And remember that doctors, themselves, as well as the labs and even the hospitals, will all “deal.” They hate going to collection. All of them will deal.
So you take your broken leg example (read his post, anyone, if you missed it) of a total $10k bill for the broken leg. Lets break that into
For simplicity’s sake $6k for hospital, $3k for doc, $1k for lab.
You go to the hospital billing, find someone High up enough to make decisions, and say, I have $3k in cash right now. Will you take it? I can’t pay more than that, and if it goes to collections yu won’t get more than $1.5k if that. No billing hassles, just close out my account for this cash? They most likely will. Maybe you haggle a little. But it works. D the same with the doc, he doesn’t earn much (docs lose money a LOT), so I’d pay him for the brilliant setting of your leg, $2k. He then has far less paperwork for his expensive staff. Ok, then the lab, who might drop your MRI bill to $600. Your total spent on the broken leg would be — no obamaCare in sight — $5600. With obamaCare you spent $8000.
Free market, baby!! Win, win, baby! No middle men!
I would be willing to bet that there will be hundreds of scam front operations that will look like real websites that just want your personal info, bank account numbers, ss numbers, etc. and will empty your accounts to Nigeria before you get off the computer................
They are not ‘willfully ignorant’ but they are ignorant just the same. They believed.................
