Skip to comments.Powers: ObamaCare forces me to pay more for insurance, too

Last night, Powers managed to work her way through the Washington DC exchange to find that she couldnt keep the plan she liked, either. In order to keep the same deductible in place, her monthly premiums will almost double, from $160 to $300:
That is an additional $1,680 a year, which doesnt actually get her better coverage, and which Powers will have to pay out regardless of how much she accesses the health-care system. As a younger and healthier consumer, Powers shouldnt be paying more; she should be paying less in a properly-managed risk pool. Thanks to the mandates of the ACA, though, Powers will now subsidize higher-risk members of the pool.
Its not included in the clip, but Powers noted that she wouldnt have minded a slight premium increase to make that work, but not on this scale and now has considerable skepticism that the scheme will work at all:

He is right - about Samantha Powers. Occasionally she will admit that the Democrats are wrong. It is rare, but never-the-less worth remarking upon.
Ofcourse, she probably spends that in coffee a week so it's chump change to her. To a young, working family it could very well mean less food.
I think the article is about Kirsten Powers, who could see the light one day. No hope for Obamabot Samantha Powers - she is completely indoctrinated in the Regime.
It’s Kirsten Powers on Fox not Samantha
Maybe Kirsten would like to pass on some more of her paycheck to the Federal Government. I’m other people will be helped by that.
Yet the markup was only $140 and she is complaining? SMH
Whether she says some things we might agree with, she is just another Obama Voting Useful Idiot.
A stopped Clock is right twice a day, but fortunately for us it can’t Vote.
She should pay more. She has an AWFUL pre existing condition:
Aggrevated Weiner Insertions
Kirsten, if someone intentionally lies to you and you're then beaten by reality, shouldn't you rethink things? Nope. Even when mugged by reality, Liberals deny reality and embrace denial.
Think of it this way Ms. Powers.
You are now paying a little more than half of what Sandy the Slut Fluke needs just for her birth control every year.
Kirsten, if you need a physical, I’m your man.
I WISH Kelly had asked Powers this question: we all know that the Left really wants Single Payer/Socialized Medicine. To pay for that, are you prepared to send in an extra 10% of your gross income to the Federal Government?
Kirsten will tell the truth, but doesn’t feel comfortable taking bottom line stands on most things.
She is the perfect example of “ go along to get along”
HA!!! It’s not the way the Democrats “sold it” despite the Republicans saying this was going to happen.
I hope she enjoys paying the extra premium costs.
