There's A Bitterly Angry Uprising Against A California Obamacare Provider On Twitter
http://www.ijreview.com ^ | january 7, 2014

When the administration points to statistics counting Americans that have signed up for Obamacare, they inevitably depend on California’s exchange numbers – so far they have signed up the most of any state.

But while the media is beginning to remember how much they love Barack Obama and his signature healthcare law, Americans who are trying to sign up for healthcare are running into more and more obstacles. And they’re going online to voice their anger and frustration. Here are some complaints from customers to Blue Cross Anthem:

Wait until all these lefties have a medical emergency that doesn’t get treated right away. I’m sure it will be the Pubs fault.

They seem to think an insurance card means their medical bills are going to get paid .... wait ‘til they find out there is such a thing as a “deductible”.

Someone here, after the BO-care legislation was "passed," shared a news story or two about people who thought now that the vote was in, they were sitting pretty. There was a tale of one man who came into a clinic, sat down, stretched out, and said something along the lines of "Give me this and that medical treatment -- it's free now, I don't have to pay for it!"

Reading through that, I’d say about 80% of it appears to be caused by last minute signups and the short processing time created by the changes of deadline days, and the other 20% is Anthem just saying “okey doakey” when Obie changed the deadlines without gearing up to handle the inevitable crunch.

Assuming their internal IT is working okay, they need to put phone reps on o/t, have them just collect names and numbers for a rotating few hours during the day, and return calls at night. Nobody should go home until every promised return call is made. This kind of stuff can be handled by a management with some sense of urgency and flexibility.

Well, the guy who tweeted this "Need an MRI and meds for my injured knee but everywhere I turn I am told I have no health insurance" can look on the bright side .... by the time he gets through paying for his MRI, he'll have met his deductible for the year or close to it ... assuming they ever get him in the system.

A lot of the folks tweeting are trying to cancel their plans .... I find that quite interesting. More of that is going to happen when people realize how much a month they are paying for nothing, unless they have huge bills and can cough up the deductible first.

Most of you Californians voted for the guy so you sheep can just suck it up. I feel for those stuck in that left coast nightmare who didn’t vote for the commie.

An Email that is currently going around gives some historical perspective on the efforts of the current administration.

So during the 3-1/2 years of World War 2 that started with the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in December 1941 and ended with the Surrender of Germany and Japan in 1945, the U.S. produced 22 aircraft carriers, 8 battleships, 48 cruisers, 349 destroyers, 420 destroyer escorts, 203 submarines, 34 million tons of merchant ships, 100,000 fighter aircraft, 98,000 bombers, 24,000 transport aircraft, 58,000 training aircraft, 93,000 tanks, 257,000 artillery pieces, 105,000 mortars, 3,000,000 machine guns, and 2,500,000 military trucks.

We put 16.1 million men in uniform in the various armed services, invaded Africa, invaded Sicily and Italy, won the battle for the Atlantic, planned and executed D-Day, marched across the Pacific and Europe, developed the atomic bomb and ultimately conquered Japan and Germany.

It's worth noting, that during the almost exact amount of time, the Obama administration couldn't build a functioning web site.

They probably assumed it was simile to previous plans, if they had one, not the 6-24k deductibles under ObamaCare.

The fireworks will really start when one of these lefties does get the procedure they need and then find out they aren't covered and they have to pay the thousands of $$$ out of their own pocket!
