That’s nearly $21k per year. Nobody can afford the Affordable Care Act......................
Is this $ 1742.50 Premium due every month?
Elena K. official announcement neglected to mention that factoid.
No...that’s an annual premium. The article links to a PDF with monthly rates.
It clearly says it’s monthly.
Those are MONTHLY rates:
The letter clearly says it’s a monthly rate. $1742.50 for a family; $20910 per year.
That’s outright piracy!..............
Obamacare was set up to punish middle class citizens who make this country work. Problem is it’s so bad it’s going to hurt almost everyone except the most protected dem victim groups.
“Thats outright piracy!..............”
....or gangsterism. He is turning the Federal government into a gangster enterprise. I bet Bugsy Seegle(sp) and Al Capone are smiling in their graves.
I think Your Money is their top priority!
All the No-Info Voters assumed that they would not be involved if they had health insurance.
They bought in to the lie of “If you like your healthcare plan you can keep it.” and “if you like your doctor you can keep him.”
They assumed that the ACA would provide FREE healthcare to those who don’t have it, you know the famous “30 million without healthcare” lie.
Now, they are forced to live with the choices THEY made for everybody else.
The best way to defeat liberal ideology is to make liberals live under their own rules.................
What a relief!
For a moment there I thought that Obama was only pushing his Obamcare as a means to squeeze money out of everybody except for his exempted friends.
Paying a Mandatory Tribute of only $4.77 a day to Commie Tyrant Obama at 1600 Plantation Avenue is the very least that we can do to support Obama Socialized Health Insurance Tax, better known as OSHIT.
For one single employee, our small group premium went from $661 to $981 per month. We had to give her crap coverage for $552 a month because she couldn’t afford the increase and I refused to pay the additional premium.
Ok lets be real. we all know 90%of the population canot afford this. now what? what do they do when most if not all of americans can not pay.
this is the big picture.
We waited to see what Obamacare is, and now we know.
Millions of people have lost their insurance coverage.
Obamacare is unaffordable, costing more than many people can pay, and it continues to reveal hidden costs.
For those who can pay the increased premiums, the coverage is less than what they could get before Obamacare, and deductibles plus limits will cause financial ruin.
We are going to end up with more uninsured people than what we had before Obamacare, but the previous uninsured may or may not be covered by Medicaid, which is to say they will probably get the same kind of care they could get before Obamacare.
We can conclude that the politicians who brought Obamacare upon us, all Democrats, are hopelessly incompetent idiots. They obviously hate us, want to make us miserable, and for the sake of politics, they are willing to destroy us. It must be so because were it otherwise, they would get out of this while the gettn’ is good. Being too stupid to foresee what a colossal catastrophe Obamacare is is one degree of evil. Being too arrogant, politically ambitious and ideologically blinded to admit the mistake and correct it is evil multiplied exponentially.
If you factor in the high deductibles of our un-subsidized corporate plan, which we hit every year, our family is paying $18k/year now.
It’s killing us.
Just wait until everyone feels this.
Annual? How do you figure that?
It is an ANNUAL Tribute to Commie Tyrant Barry S.!
How were we led astray by the unanimous support of the Progressive, Ivy-League Educated, Democrat Politicians?
Can we ever trust Democrats again?
Oh me! Oh my!
The sky is falling!
Help! Help Help!
