Skip to comments.Daring to Complain About Obamacare
Posted on 11/11/2013 6:28:05 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
THE Anthem Blue Cross representative who answered my call told me that there was a silver lining in the cancellation of my individual P.P.O. policy and the $5,400 annual increase that I would have to pay for the Affordable Care Act-compliant option: now if I have Stage 4 cancer or need a sex-change operation, Id be covered regardless of pre-existing conditions. Never mind that the new provider network would eliminate coverage for my and my sons long-term doctors and hospitals.
The Anthem rep cheerily explained that despite the companys I paraphrase draconian rates and limited network, my benefits, which also include maternity coverage (handy for a 46-year-old), would be actually much richer.
I, of course, would be actually much poorer. And it was this aspect of the bum deal that, to my surprise, turned out to be a very unpopular thing to gripe about.
Obamacare or Kafkacare? I posted on Facebook as soon as I hung up with Anthem....

AGH LOL ROFL That’s as good as lol cats hazzing cheezbergers “I’m Saden ur Freude”
If you have a rotten apple stuck in your shell you are covered for that.
Sorry, no hits for the Slimes.
Gee, Lori experiences the same lone voice in the wilderness I experience when I provide vetted citations to info I’ve avowed on FB. More people are invested in their ideology than being honest, forthright and real.
He is kidding about paying for a sex change operation isn’t he???
Our New, Happy Lives!
Comrades! cried the press secretary’s eager youthful voice. Attention, comrades! We have glorious news for you. We have won the battle for affordable health care!
Returns now completed of the output of all classes of medical goods and services show that the quality and quantity has risen by no less than twenty percent over the past year, and the cost therefor has plummeted by thirty percent!
All over Amerika this morning there were irrepressible spontaneous demonstrations when workers marched out of factories and offices and paraded through the streets with banners voicing their gratitude to Comrades Obama and Sebelius for the new, happy life which their wise leadership has bestowed upon us.
Here are some of the completed figures. Head transplants and exclamation marks
No, that is a benefit.
Michelle may undergo the first Wookie to Woman transformation, also covered under obamacare.
Her 'smug' friends might not nbe so smug in the future... Obama's going after company plans too... wait and see.
Insanity, Total insanity.
I have decided to not get sick.
Let me see if I'm following this correctly.
Under ObamaCare, if a male wants a sex-change operation, being a male is now a "pre-existing condition?"
...so now that this woman has discovered that she’s the “rich” who will be shelling out more for the “poor”, she’s opposed to it?
You'll be fined by 'dear leader' ... you know that, right?
It's all horrible...
Obama's going after medicare advantage too - old people have limited places to go... and might need medical care. You're in my prayers Foundahardheadedwoman - you, me and all of us.
That Kool Aid stain is gonna last a while.
-— the smug insureds friends who were covered through their own or spouses employers or who were grandfathered into their plans asked why I didnt just switch all of our long-term doctors, suck it up and pay an extra $200 a month for a restrictive network on the exchange -—
Their time will come... Soon.
Meanwhile, speaking of Kafkaesque, every Freeper should watch Orson Welles’ version of “The Trial.” It’s a truly terrifying, surrealistic depiction of the totalitarian State. It’s in my all-time top ten.
