Dem Voters Confused: “I Didn’t Realize I Would Be The One Who Was Going to Pay For It Personally”
DC Clothesline ^ | 10/8/2013 | Mac Slavo

Posted on 10/09/2013 2:55:47 PM PDT by IbJensen

Back in 2008, when then-candidate Obama promised Joe the Plumber and the rest of America that he intended to spread the wealth around, most democrat and liberal voters embraced the notion of wealth redistribution under the guise of equality. A universal health care plan, that would be free for all Americans, was the promise from the candidate of hope and change.

Tens of millions of Americans jumped on the bandwagon waving their flags, fainting at his appearances, and fawning over his every word.

None ever thought about where the money would come from for all this new found wealth he promised to bestow upon them.

But those who understand that socialism, communism and governance by the collective are failed experiments, warned where that money would come from. It would be taken by force from the toils of the middle class, and it’d impoverish them in the process.

Now the myrmidons who once vehemently supported the policies of President Barack Obama without question are coming to the realization that when Obama spoke about spreading the wealth he actually meant their wealth too!

Cindy Vinson is one such supporter. This month, like many Americans who have health insurance through their employer or private insurers, Vinson got an unwanted awakening to the reality of government sponsored wealth confiscation and redistribution:

Cindy Vinson and Tom Waschura are big believers in the Affordable Care Act. They vote independent and are proud to say they helped elect and re-elect President Barack Obama.

Yet, like many other Bay Area residents who pay for their own medical insurance, they were floored last week when they opened their bills: Their policies were being replaced with pricier plans that conform to all the requirements of the new health care law.

Vinson, of San Jose, will pay $1,800 more a year for an individual policy, while Waschura, of Portola Valley, will cough up almost $10,000 more for insurance for his family of four.

“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.”

Both Vinson and Waschura have adjusted gross incomes greater than four times the federal poverty level — the cutoff for a tax credit. And while both said they anticipated their rates would go up, they didn’t realize they would rise so much.

“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.”

Now that Ms. Vinson and Mr. Washcura know they are the ones footing the bill to provide free health care to the “less fortunate” out of their life savings and retirement accounts, they’re very quickly coming to the realization that they’ve been bamboozled by the very person who promised them hope, change, free housing, free gas, free phones, free medicine and a host of other government-issued services.

Socialism is an awesome idea, isn’t it?

Until it’s you who has to foot the bill.

Ms. Vinson wanted hard working Americans to feel the pain, to give up their life’s work for equal wealth distribution, and she voted to force these mandates on unwilling Americans at the barrel of a gun.

Who’s in front of the barrel now, Ms. Vinson?

You, and the rest of the 50 million people who elected Barack Obama to not one, but two terms, deserve the pain that’s coming.

You asked for it. Now bask in it.

“I Didn’t Realize I Would Be The One Who Was Going to Pay For It Personally”

Then you are clearly an ignorant *sshole.

And do you really think it’d be better if others - with families and financial responsibilities of their own to manage - paid your health bills for you???

Read the constitution, kid, and then GET A LIFE FOR CHRISTMAS!!!!

This is going to be thoroughly entertaining to watch.

Economics 101; A lesson for democrats/progressives.

The realization by 0bama zombies and their sycophants that economics is NOT about math, but a reflection of human nature and self interest.

This Zerocare “experiment” will leave them scratching their heads as their supporters “choose” to pay the penalty/tax since it is substantially less expensive than paying for someone else.

As the young idealists that are fundamentally selfish tout this “train-wreck” they themselves will act in their own interest.

I expect that very soon we will see ads from “everyday” people that are excited to pay for something they don’t want or need.

The next phase of propagandacare will be an attempt to guilt the young into signing up.

Cue Sally Struthers, and the sad sad stories.

“For the price of just one Starbucks coffee a day, you can provide care for this sad desperate crack addicted high school dropout single mother from a broken home of another sad desperate crack addicted high school dropout single mother from a broken home”

Guess what...Obama lied to you and doesn’t give a rat’s posterior about your predicament. Remember... if you like your insurance you can keep it...you can keep your doctor...Obamacare will save you $2500 per year...all lies. For Obama it’s all about political power and if you get screwed too bad.

What a sickening and unusual collection of weirdoes.

All the more reason to raise the voting age to 21 and require a I.Q. test before you vote, also include in that a class on econmics 101 before voting.

"Obamacare will save you $2500 per year"

My annual Care costs <<$2500.

I figured that after I saved $2500 with 0DontCare that I'd be $1,000s ahead.

Where's my money? (I already spent my savings - pay up Bammy)

You didn't hear the "Tax Professional" call into Glenn Yesterday did you...

As she noted, the Penalty is not $95, but comes from an elaborate formula, and may cost you thousands if you have a family and your income is like 100k.

The formula is something like your AGI X 1% X the number of exemptions on your return.

No matter how you slice it, they are gonna meet Ben, Ben Dover....

Well, son, you can take comfort from the fact that your betters in Congress and the Unions don't have to put up with that hardship. Feel better?

This has always bothered me, and I have some relatives (OK female ones) who consider themselves SO compasionate! SO on the right side and make it publically known that those who disagree with them (i.e. the ones who ACTUALLY pay the bill) are SO SELFISH! — and consider themselves SO NOBLE to vote for OTHER people to pay the bill. I am compassionate, I donate to charity. But I do NOT seek to use the FORCE OF LAW to make OTHER people foot the bill! Foot the bill yourself and you can claim charity for others (of course, according to Christ’s example, you are supposed to do it without seeking recognition). Using the force of the IRS to force OTHER people to pay for the compassion you take for yourself, as your excuse for voting for taxation on others, to make your own self feel so so good?!? Give me a break! It is time for that rooster to come to roost. YOU yourself (I mean not you the poster but the you-s who are now complaining about the cost to themselves for what they voted for) must compassionately give to others, not use the force of the government for OTHER people to have to pay the bill YOU voted for. Sorry this is so rambling but I think you get it. They want points for compassion, as long as someone ELSE is paying!

Now that Ms. Vinson and Mr. Washcura know they are the ones footing the bill to provide free health care to the “less fortunate”

For cripe sakes (no offense IbJensen, this is not specifically picking on you), can we at least make it clear in our discussions, that Obamacare is not health care, it is health insurance. I know the media and the politicians aren't being accurate, or truthful, in their discussions, but Freepers are more knowledgable than that.

BTW, when people get subsidized Obamacare insurance, aren't they still going to be subjected to high deductibles? Wait to the people who get their "free" Obamacare relaize they are still oing to have to pay for a big chunk of their health care.
