Let's inundate the NYT with reality. Forward this link to everyone you know too.
I do advise not to give out a phone number or your real name. You can also choose to use a throw-away email.
The information I contributed was that my wife was unable to create an account on the Colorado obamacare site, but she WAS able to get plan prices. Bronze price for her was $650.00/month and $6,500.00 annual out-of-pocket with no subsidies because my employer offers me insurance but not her. She would have to divorce me to get subsidies under that circumstance. She's elected to pay the fine and forgo insurance because, financially, that's her only viable choice. Thanks a lot, Obama.
I seriously doubt they are going to publish my story. My cost is up over 10k a year thru obamadeathcare.
If I assume correctly....no FReeper in their right mind would go NEAR that horrid excuse for a webpage. In order to get a price for a plan, you have to give them information that is CHECKED...and it’s a LOT of information that you might not want others to know. I hear tell it has the security of a sieve.
Translation: We will publish the 3 success stories, ignore the 10,000 failure stories and call it “hard-hitting journalism”
Won't matter. Leftism is a religion to these people. No amount of Reality can penetrate the consciousness of the true believers. Not even people dying in the streets is going to shake their faith in Big Brother, who is their god.
[ I STRONGLY urge everyone with an Obamacare horror story to follow this link and contribute their information to the New York Times poll. Let these leftists see what’s going on for real. Don’t just let people with “positive” obamacare experiences skew the information the NYT is gathering. ]
Just because the Obamacare Database doesn’t work BY DESIGN, doesn’t mean their other more sinister databases don’t work...

Colorado did their own website, not healthcare.gov, and you could get accurate pricing information without giving anything but zip and age.

For sure they’ll do that if they get only “success” stories.
Why doesn’t your employer insure her?
“Why doesnt your employer insure her?”
Employers are cutting back insurance especially now that dependent childre are covered until they’re 26.
We’ll insure your kid but not your spouse!
IIRC, they recently modified it so you don’t need a account to view prices.
Same in CT, though they ask if you are pregnant.
They’re fishing for good stories.
It’s the NYT - you really expect them to report anything bad about Obama or his healthcare plan?
“Its the NYT - you really expect them to report anything bad about Obama or his healthcare plan?”
They can’t publish any bad ones if they don’t get them.
“Why doesnt your employer insure her?”
They never have. Do they need a reason?
VA, Affordable Care Act and You
What is the Affordable Care Act?
The Affordable Care Act, also known as the health care law, was created to expand access to coverage, control health care costs and improve health care quality and care coordination. The health care law does not change VA health benefits or Veterans out-of-pocket costs.
Three things you should know:
1 VA wants all Veterans to receive health care that improves their health and well-being.
2 If you are enrolled in VA health care, you dont need to take additional steps to meet the health care law coverage standards. The health care law does not change VA health benefits or Veterans out-of-pocket costs.
3 If you are not enrolled in VA health care, you can apply at any time.
