Skip to comments.Sticker Shock: Californians suddenly discover why all the Republican shouting over #Obamacare.
Posted on 10/06/2013 9:55:10 AM PDT by sheikdetailfeather
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 dont 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 familys pocket each year, thats otherwise disposable income or retirement savings that will not be going into our local economy.
Let me tell you a secret: we dont 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 dont have to vote Republican forever, you know. Well 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.”
If you’re surprised by the realities of BOzoCare you’re lazy, stupid or brainwashed and most likely a combination of all three.
A conservative is a liberal who has been mugged.
They will blame it on anything or anybody except their her0.
Probably not. Nancy, Harry, and Chucky will come out with another list of lies blaming the nasty 'ol repubs and the disgruntled mr. obummer supporter will be right back on the liberal plantation.
If Obama told him his policy went down $2500 while the $10k was held directly out of his check this idiot would say.....mmmm okay.
Well, the good news is; there are a lot more "non-union working and middle class people" than there are rich people.
You are soooooooooooooooo RIGHT!
The democrats just received a blistering in Colorado after pushing through “gun control” legislation, would not allow anyone to speak against it in the legislature, refused to listen to the American people in Colorado, so they recalled two (2) of the top Democrat liberal socialist who were the pushers behind the anti-gun legislation. Has that stopped the liberal socialist from pushing more anti-gun legislation or call for more anti-gun laws in Washington, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
For the conservative Tea Party to push for an end to Obama mama's socialized health-care is certainly not any where compared to the tactic currently being used by the loony leftist, socialist, democrats who hate this Country so much, they have opened the borders in order to change the demographic make up of its people in order to steer the American people into a fascist socialist (Nazi) utopia!
Stay strong my fellow Americans, the truth will always win the fight and reality cuts the quickest to the bone!!!!!
Of course the people of California’s insurance rates are going up ! that’s where most of the homo’s with AIDS live that are now all rushing out to get insurance that can no longer be denied to them.
Every hetrosexual person in California is now going to have to pay for the treatment of the millions of sodomites that live there
The Marxocrat politicians don't care how many cockroach illegals flood our streets because they have limos and armed security and live in gated communities. It's all about building a permanentlt entrenched DEM majority at the EXPENSE of a decent, lawful society.
LIV's don't realize they are supporting politicians who are destroying their odds for survival in the streets of Mexifornia.
I really dont like the Republican tactics... Huh? What tactics dont 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 dont try to leave and dont forget, the KGB is always listening and watching.
Translation: I thought Republicans were lying until I got price shocked.
Obamacare does away with asset tests for Medicaid, so you would have gotten free medical coverage courtesy of the Federal budget (and eventually, your fellow taxpayers, as well as your own past contributions). However, Texas has chosen not expand Medicaid, so you’re not covered. There’s always AR or NM, though, which have expanded Medicaid. Still, Houston and San Antonio are boomtowns because of shale oil and gas, so maybe that’s the way to go.
From the comments:
“Well done Obama ! You have turned the tables on the rich who are used to living on the poor. Now , The poor is getting a chance to live on the rich. Till now, the rich we’re paying taxes at reduced rates nd the poor we’re made to pay taxes at higher rates on their smaller income. Now, when the rich are made to pay full and the poor on subsidized rates , the rich is going hyper and crying “ uncle”.”
I never “approved” of the tactics used by code pink either, and yet... now the whole world seems to have embraced the sodomites!
apparently, sometime tactics you don’t approve of work.
As P.J. O’Rourke put it, “If you think health care is expensive now, wait until it’s free”.
LIBs are insufferable asses. I really prefer not to communicate or socialize with them.
