The reality is this. July and August will come this year, with the new 2015 rates to be published. Everyone will get this in the mail, and go berserk because it’s another twenty to forty percent more than this year, and this year was already a hefty jump up. Most everyone thought the rates would stabilize and at least stay the same for two or three years.
By September....questions will arise by the public. The news media will be in a tight position. Bad news, pointed questions, and an election period in November. What can they say or avoid saying?
But here’s the kicker. You wake up in January of 2015, and realize that you are now paying around $950 a month for family insurance, and you still have a $6000 a year deductible. So it’s roughly eighteen thousand dollars that you need to lay out possibly for health costs. What idiot will accept that? You could buy a car every single year for that. In ten years, you could buy a decent property in most rural areas of America, with a shed, barn, and twenty acres.
If you ask me....it gets bad late in 2014, but really negative by the spring of 2015 as folks wake up and realize cost never stopped spiraling upward.
Go back and look at the Roosevelt era of the 1930s and all the mistakes he made. Things look awful familiar.
People will panic - Obama-Reid will step in and call for Single Payer [total government control].
Any calls by the GOP to repeal Obamacare [and use common sense solutions to right this ship] will be slammed in the state media as attacking American’s and leaving them without healthcare.
I’ve been paying on average $15k/year for the last 10 years, and it’s extremely difficult. And of course there are the deductibles you mentioned.
The regime has destabilized the health insurance industry, while sticking its finger in the eye of those who’ve paid dearly to support it.
Few can appreciate the reality of what you’re foretelling.
Mmmmmmm....sounds more like the mistakes by Nicolai and Elena Ceaușescu.
Or maybe Juan and Evita's screw-ups?
The sodomites with AIDS whose medication which costs millions will still be happy now though since the insurance companies are now forced to offer them coverage.
And make no mistake most of this was about getting the sodomites with AIDS insurance.
Here’s where I’m at. Insurance became unaffordable for me about 4 years ago when I was paying $300 a month for myself and my wife. $900 a month is impossible. My mortgage is $1250 wth!. The whole thing is just stupid.
I have done nothing whatever with respect to Obamacare. I guess they will put me in jail eventually.
To back up your statement re FDR, below is a political cartoon from the 1930's addressing the socialism that was rampant under FDR, his congress and $upremes. I put this cartoon on my home page shortly after Herr Obozo was elected or scammed in as POTUS.
Said brilliantly! !
We already ARE paying $900/m for insurance with a $12,500 deductible.
Obama is patterning himself after Roosevelt...even the rhetoric is the same.
Roosevelt wanted as many on the dole as possible to ensure votes...that’s why he stretched the depression out purposely. Obama is going for the same thing.
we have to somehow get ourselves exempt....that or get off the grid if we can and have little income...
or move...or die I guess...
