Sticker Shock: Californians suddenly discover why all the Republican shouting over #Obamacare.

Meet Tom Waschura, Californian, father of two – oh, and right: Obama supporter. Just got a letter from his healthcare provider telling him that his private health insurance just went up by ten grand a year:

“I was laughing at Boehner — until the mail came today,” Waschura said, referring to House Speaker John Boehner, who is leading the Republican charge to defund Obamacare.

“I really don’t like the Republican tactics, but at least now I can understand why they are so pissed about this. When you take $10,000 out of my family’s pocket each year, that’s otherwise disposable income or retirement savings that will not be going into our local economy.”

Let me tell you a secret: we don’t need people like Mr. Waschura to love us. We just need people like him to vote their class interests, to quote the Marxists who unaccountably confidently expect this rotating disaster of a health care rationing system to fuel public outcry for socialized medicine. They don’t have to vote Republican forever, you know. We’ll be happy if they vote Republican just enough to allow the party to kill this thing. With that in mind, let me just be the first to assure Mr. Waschura that his hope that the rates will be adjusted down in a few years is only half-justified: left unchecked, they will be adjusted. Only upwards. The Democrats always expected and planned that Obamacare would be funded by raiding the incomes of as many people as possible; making the insurance companies the mechanism for jacking up premiums was the only way to get the insurance companies on-board.

"Of course, I want people to have health care," Vinson said. "I just didn't realize I would be the one who was going to pay for it personally."

Well, now you do, much too late of course. You're now stuck with it until the collapse.

Too late for this wealthy political retard.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SyntheSys_Research

The rich morons making a big stink over the GOP shut down make me laugh. The spiking premiums for high-income people are the tip of the iceberg. When this is all over, they’ll be paying 50% of their income in Federal income taxes. In fact, anyone making over $100K will eventually vote in lockstep for the GOP due to crushing income tax rates. However, by then, it will be too late. Because the new programs introduced will benefit so many sub-$100K income households that they can neither be repealed nor reduced in size, and an overwhelming majority of the electorate will be voting Democratic. And all because Democratic and GOP tycoons couldn’t stomach the idea of being aligned with social conservatives who are opposed to gay marriage and abortion, but whose religious views also oppose income redistribution due to their adherence to the commandment that “Thou shalt not steal”, even if the government does it for you. Ultimately, arrogant political retards with more money than sense, and a need to feel superior to some other group (social conservatives) against which it is politically-correct* to feel superior, brought it on themselves.

* Can’t feel superior to blacks without a twinge of racial guilt, so Bible-thumping social conservatives will have to do.

“I really don’t like the Republican tactics...”

Huh? What tactics don’t you like? Rule of law? Honest disagreement?

Oh, I see. You much prefer to be lied to 24/7 and convinced that the R party is full of evil, racists so you can feel morally superior. Just like the old Soviet Union. The leaders told the citizens that the west was a horrible, evil place, the people starving, etc. Just don’t try to leave and don’t forget, the KGB is always listening and watching.

Folks, if any of us think that Tom Waschura or Cindy Vinson or any of the low information Obamabots are going to vote for a (gasp) Republican in the near future, we are delusional enough to buy a bridge in Brooklyn or prime beachfront property in southern Arizona.
Once the administration comes up with a story to convince them that this thing ain't FUBAR and this is not just a normal government SNAFU, but the quotes are a Republican plot of some kind, they will be even more in love with The Won and back on the plantation.

what a moronic comment, of many, i keep hearing from the left and obama supporters... at least this goon considers the extra $10k a year on his premium as, “disposable” income... many of us will bite the same bullet and we have no such income to dispose of! thanks a lot you ignorant lamus!
if you are not part of the elite, it will also all go downhill for you dumbo. welcome to the road to serfdom in America!
i don’t put a lot of thought into my posts anymore... just express my disdain and anger for these left turds. the new normal sucks and the real common sense is considered extreme... and it all came upon us so quickly and many lamuses are still clueless. sad.

ROTFL.
obamacare is inherently unworkable and there's no fix for it.

Shame on this individual for believing the Marxist in the first place.

Not long after that happens, it will become obvious that a country can chose to have generous social welfare programs, or it can chose to have open borders. It cannot have both.

They’ll just blame it on the Pubbies, greedy Drs, medical and pharma, and insurance companies. Most can’t see beyond their wart-covered noses, due to White liberal guilt and blind allegiance to 0bummer&Co. They’ll get the tax subsidies, and claim victory. Some things never change.

Assuming that you get coverage through your employer, are your premiums going up substantially?

This is why Obama will not back down on the budget "crisis".

Could you imagine the sticker shock of tens of millions of Obama voters when they get their health insurance premiums jacked up 200% or so five weeks before the 2014 elections? Think about it. Millions of morons getting the wake up call of a lifetime five weeks before an election.

It would be a purge of the democrates in the house and senate.

He'll be fine. My guess is that he's worth tens of millions, minimum.

Bronco Bama is in for a real wild ride as he puts forth his healthcare disaster all designed to tick people off and make it easier to segue into a socialized, single-payer system.

The GOP needs rich people to vote their class interests and working and middle class people to vote their religious principles. In practice, we can get most non-union working and middle class people to vote those principles, but the rich has its collective nose too high up in the air to want to be associated with the hoi polloi right.

No, no, no.

Business Insider found one old Republican in Arkansas who found one plan that saves him a little bit of money. See? That is proof positive Hussein’s Death Panels are awesome.

i was recently laid off and don’t have insurance. i know the deductibles will be outrageous and the quality of care in general will be diminished. that is the natural course of socialized medicine, at a time when i have zero disposable income. oh, btw... jobs, or at least gainful employment, i have noticed are harder to come by. not surprising, eh?
