The Weekly Standard ^ | January 30, 2014 | DANIEL HALPER

A local news station brings viewers inside one Pennsylvania company as the employees their learn about their new health care plans under Obamacare:

"Look at the numbers," says the reporter of two employees. "Jeff and Dave used to have a $1,250 deductible. Since Obamacare went into effect, it's now jumped 60 percent to $2,000. That's nothing compared to Brian, Kristi, and Judy who have kids. They are going to pay twice that, four grand." The reporter adds that co-pays are being increased, too.

Excellent video series, with one exception - I can’t help but think that, given all of the cameras in the room filming them, the employees were already briefed on the changes before filming.

Would be interesting to see how many of these folks voted for Obama.

Come on now, he didn’t get in office on his own.

I would be curious; how many of those employees voted for Hussein only to now realize they did this to themselves.

Will they learn from it, that’s the question.

So instead of the GOP focusing on ObamaCare like a laser, they are going to piss us off with an unwanted immigration bill.

FU Ryan, Boehner, and Cantor.

we can't afford this, we can't afford to pay these co-pays, to pay these deductibles on what we're making," says one of the workers.

Suck it up, bud. You didn't have a problem voting for Obama when you thought *I* was going to pay your co-pays and deductibles for you. How does it feel having "some skin in the game"?

That may well be true, but does it change anything?
