Skip to comments.Sticker Shock: Californians suddenly discover why all the Republican shouting over #Obamacare.

Meet Tom Waschura, Californian, father of two oh, and right: Obama supporter. Just got a letter from his healthcare provider telling him that his private health insurance just went up by ten grand a year:
I was laughing at Boehner until the mail came today, Waschura said, referring to House Speaker John Boehner, who is leading the Republican charge to defund Obamacare.
I really dont like the Republican tactics, but at least now I can understand why they are so pissed about this. When you take $10,000 out of my familys pocket each year, thats otherwise disposable income or retirement savings that will not be going into our local economy.
Let me tell you a secret: we dont need people like Mr. Waschura to love us. We just need people like him to vote their class interests, to quote the Marxists who unaccountably confidently expect this rotating disaster of a health care rationing system to fuel public outcry for socialized medicine. They dont have to vote Republican forever, you know. Well be happy if they vote Republican just enough to allow the party to kill this thing. With that in mind, let me just be the first to assure Mr. Waschura that his hope that the rates will be adjusted down in a few years is only half-justified: left unchecked, they will be adjusted. Only upwards. The Democrats always expected and planned that Obamacare would be funded by raiding the incomes of as many people as possible; making the insurance companies the mechanism for jacking up premiums was the only way to get the insurance companies on-board.

The Marxocrat politicians don't care how many cockroach illegals flood our streets because they have limos and armed security and live in gated communities. It's all about building a permanentlt entrenched DEM majority at the EXPENSE of a decent, lawful society.
LIV's don't realize they are supporting politicians who are destroying their odds for survival in the streets of Mexifornia.
I really dont like the Republican tactics... Huh? What tactics dont you like? Rule of law? Honest disagreement? Oh, I see. You much prefer to be lied to 24/7 and convinced that the R party is full of evil, racists so you can feel morally superior. Just like the old Soviet Union. The leaders told the citizens that the west was a horrible, evil place, the people starving, etc. Just dont try to leave and dont forget, the KGB is always listening and watching.
Translation: I thought Republicans were lying until I got price shocked.
Obamacare does away with asset tests for Medicaid, so you would have gotten free medical coverage courtesy of the Federal budget (and eventually, your fellow taxpayers, as well as your own past contributions). However, Texas has chosen not expand Medicaid, so you’re not covered. There’s always AR or NM, though, which have expanded Medicaid. Still, Houston and San Antonio are boomtowns because of shale oil and gas, so maybe that’s the way to go.
From the comments:
“Well done Obama ! You have turned the tables on the rich who are used to living on the poor. Now , The poor is getting a chance to live on the rich. Till now, the rich we’re paying taxes at reduced rates nd the poor we’re made to pay taxes at higher rates on their smaller income. Now, when the rich are made to pay full and the poor on subsidized rates , the rich is going hyper and crying “ uncle”.”
I never “approved” of the tactics used by code pink either, and yet... now the whole world seems to have embraced the sodomites!
apparently, sometime tactics you don’t approve of work.
As P.J. O’Rourke put it, “If you think health care is expensive now, wait until it’s free”.
LIBs are insufferable asses. I really prefer not to communicate or socialize with them.
actually, the funniest line is when he said he doesn’t like republican tactics.
The problem is that all of the "working" families are too busy working to do anything about this (and before you say it, voting is useless anymore). The hired rent-a-mobs who will be getting the actual "free" healthcare (although they don't realize it yet, but "free" means take a pill or "put some ice on it") can be ginned up and bussed around to make it look like there is an actual public outcry for more Obamacare. Short of Mark Levin's proposal to return liberty to America, blood will have to be spilled to return us to a Constitutional Republic. With the masks coming off of the Communists in charge of our country right now, there is no way in heck that they will back down politically. They will have to be forced out. We are Egypt, and the Moslem Brotherhood is in charge.
“Just wait till the Illegal Mexicans start screaming for health care! International Health Care he we come!”
jokes today, become reality tomorrow.
“Of course, I want people to have health care,” Vinson said. “I just didn’t realize I would be the one who was going to pay for it personally.”
Reality really does hurt, but, most liberal socialist simply refuse to admit, liberalism is a FAILURE, no matter how, when, or where it is tried! these Obama mama supporters are now just starting to figure that out, not because it is as plain as the nose on their respective faces, but, because, liberalism is taking a bite out of their back pockets!
Mrs. Thatcher (Iron Lady), the last conservative Prime Minister of Great Britain once stated: “Socialist never tire of spending other people's money.”
Here’s the Obamacare Medicaid expansion map, if you’re interested:
The way the Medicaid expansion works is that adults with income amounting to less than 138% of the poverty threshold are eligible for Medicaid without an asset test (i.e. you don’t have to sell your car, your house, etc or draw down your bank balances).
If you decide to work at a retail job or at a fast food chain for minimum wage as a stopgap measure, and you make more than the 138% of poverty threshold, you can benefit from Obamacare even in states that don’t do the Medicaid expansion. For instance, someone who works two retail jobs and makes $16K a year will get insurance coverage for $45 a month. The true cost of the coverage is $7330 per year, but the federal budget pays for $6791 of that amount.
As with the Medicaid expansion, there is no asset test to be eligible for Obamacare, meaning you don’t have to sell or draw down any assets to qualify.
At this point I dont give a shi’ite how many 0bama supporters suffer.
He’ll be fine - he’s probably worth tens of millions.
“International Health Care”....
Oh that too is coming, without a doubt...and once that happens even your job will be farmed out to them...or they’ll get hired before you here...which of course is already happening.
Hitler’s supporters also had a big disappointment in their leader!!! But they also worshiped him prior to that!

They dont have to vote Republican forever, you know. We'll be happy if they vote Republican just enough to allow the party to kill this thing.In California, we need them to be angry enough about their own gullibility and stupidity (because Obama's been very obvious in his many many lies, since day one) to recall the Demwit politicians, or better yet, rend them limb from limb at a town hall meeting and throw their carcasses in the carbon-credit dumpsters.
The majority of the GOP are part of the problem.
"When in times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act." - It's why Cornyn, McConell, McCain etc are pissed at Cruz.
The only reason Bonehead and Cantor haven't caved is they realize the people are royally p'od and they're trying to protect their phony baloney jobs.
Lets start that conversation by acknowledging we arent going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants... bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society. Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors. [but hes not in favor of amnesty, snicker, definition of is is]
...by softening its edge on some volatile social issues and altering its image as the party always seemingly "eager to go to war... We do need to expand the party and grow the party and that does mean that we don't always all agree on every issue" ... the party needs to become more welcoming to individuals who disagree with basic Republican doctrine on emotional social issues such as gay marriage... "We're going to have to be a little hands off on some of these issues ... and get people into the party," Paul said.
Ditto, ditto, and again ditto! You are 100% correct.
The income tax was a means for the Democrats to take some of the working man’s WAGES. Obamacare is a means for the Democrats to take a piece of the working man’s/woman’s BENEFITS. Who benefits from more government employees, Democrats or Republicans? The Democrats feel that they are entitled to some of everything that is yours.
Life’s tough.Its tougher when you’re stupid.This moron takes the prize.
We’ll tell us Mr. Kalifornia, just what tactics would you suggest we use against this sociopath? Suck it up and consider your increased healthcare premium a belated campaign donation to Obama/Biden, 2008 and 2012.
What did the californian say when somenone called him a ditznifornian?
He said, “Ditznifornian? I don’t get it.”
“When this thing starts stinging all of the working families and working Americans in a couple of years there is going to be such a scream that Democrat are going to have to go into hiding.”
I remember a comment by a Dem (I think) about Hillary care, something to the tune of “if we pass this, in a few years the people will be hunting Democrats with dogs.” They haven’t learned.
As a result, you have highly paid corporate execs who feel they are part of the Socialist Vanguard marching to the strain of “L’Internationale”, when intact, they are the class enemy Same with labor unionists.
Obama is turning on these people and they are beginning to understand that they are the enemies in his ultimate agenda
Okay now we will try the landline # 1-800-318-2596 listed above or 1-800-318-2596 = 1-800-FAU-CKYO.
The liberals I know, but no longer speak to, will bitch but will still write the checks. They’ll go without food and clothing to stay on obama’s sled to hell. And they’ll NEVER vote for a republican.
It would almost be worth talking to them just to laugh in their faces. Almost...
Yep. They’ll be just like the Japanese women throwing their children off cliffs rather than hand them over to the “American Devils”. They’ll die shouting “I hate republicans!” Or if they end up in FEMA camps they’ll be going around with a glass stare saying “This ain’t so bad.”
That was painful to read.
That doofus doesn’t realize his leftist buddies will be feeding him into the wood chipper one day, too.
If he didnt get the message, mug him again.
Yeah, but I bet you voted for Boxer, fine swine and probably Nancy pig lousy too. Remember how San Fran Nan said "We have to pass it to find out what's in it"? Suck on that sour lemon you douche bag. I hate the LIV in the liberal states and cities.
Obama supporters finding out that Obamacare isnt free..isnt karma a well, ya know..Commies only love Commiecare if others end up paying for it, once they realize it is THEM who has to pay for this disaster they wake up
His mugging, under Obamacare is just beginning. It will get worse.
Of course, I want people to have health care, Vinson said. I just didnt realize I would be the one who was going to pay for it personally.
The guy can’t really be all that surprised, can he? He was perfectly willing to finance the healthcare for the poor on the back of someone else, he just never realized that he would be that “someone else”
The Democrats will shortly be screaming for the Republicans to help them make major changes to Obamacare. Remember HillaryCare.......
My guess is this a$$#@!e was perfectly alright when he thought it was just going to be those nasty rich guys getting pounded....welcome to Obamas America...peasant .. shut up and pay!!
I have made it known to the few libs I know that their views are not appreciated in my house.....that pretty well stopped them from coming around. I haven’t gone to their houses for a long while. Don’t miss any of them!!!
If this is the Yutz, (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SyntheSys_Research) he can very probably afford it and I would triple his premium just for inflicting the amateur, probably twice, on the rest of us who can’t afford it.
Democrat/marxist family members should be ostracized from all conservative homes, especially at holiday time. If they are going to make our lives miserable; they are not welcome under our roof.
