Skip to comments.Schadenfreude: MSNBC Anchor Sees His Health Insurance Premiums Skyrocket Under ObamaCare

Thnx Mr. President!
Thats what former MSNBC anchor Dylan Ratigan had to say to President Obama in a tweet earlier today.
He was saying it sarcastically. You know, like when you say thanks a lot! to someone who bumps into you in the hallway, causing you to spill your coffee all over your clothes.
But Mr. Ratigan experienced something far worse than a coffee spill. His health insurance premiums are skyrocketing thanks to the hilariously named Affordable Care Act.
What happened? Well, for starters, Ratigan had catastrophic health insurance coverage. That means that he sees himself as pretty healthy and is willing to pay out-of-pocket for routine medical expenses. However, if he gets hit by the proverbial beer truck and ends up with tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills, hes covered.
That was under his old plan, which cost him $170 per month.
His old plan, of course, wasnt good enough for President Obama. Yes, this is the same President Obama who promised everyone with a straight face that they could their existing health insurance under his new health care law.
Ratigan found out, much like millions of others are finding out, that the President lied when he made that promise.
Now, Ratigans new health insurance premium is $600 per month.
Thnx Mr. President!
We might almost feel sorry for the guy if he wasnt a former MSNBC host who used to berate Republican guests.
Now, he is learning the hard way that those Republicans were promoting ideas that would save him, and millions of other Americans, a lot of money.
Hey, some people learn the hard way.
He used to be on CNBC. He seems all over the lot politically.
I can’t for the life of me figure out why so many people didn’t know from day one that this program would increase the cost of coverage by a LOT.
I LOVE it when an idiot lib has to bend over and take the same suppository he has been pushing on us peasants!
Deceived by Obama and dumped by MSNBC. Is this "As Good As It Gets ?
Me either, but I don’t get any TV “news channels”.
I have a dream that one day, all TV people, movie people, all of the various media hirelings will say...
“Why was it I supported Obama and the Democrats? I cannot remember.”
Hoist by his own Barack.
Ratigan used to host “Fast Money” on CNBC before Melissa Lee. He wanted to go the the ‘Big Show’ on PMSNBC where he could broaden his horizons.
Just a thought, since this was argued in the Supreme Court as a tax, will everyone be able to deduct the cost of the insurance premium from their income tax like we do our federal and state tax bill, Medicare and Social Security taxes?
Just curious, haven’t heard anyone discuss this.
And the answer will be easy - “because conservatives and Christians opposed him and them”
bookmarking for an answer to your question.
Every lib that gets burned reminds me of the closing days of World War II when german civilians were forced to tour the death camps that their beloved fuhrer gave them.
They dismissed everyone that was telling them that this would be the result because they automatically assume our intentions are evil, because their intentions are self-defined as “good”.
“Hey, some people learn the hard way.”
I’ll bet he hasn’t learned anything. At least not anything that would turn him away from the Rats.
The fine was argued to be a tax, not the premiums.
Dumbass would turn around and vote dem again too. These guys are the absolute dumbest bunch of dumbass asses to ever walk the face of the earth.
Hoisted on his own retard...................
Tip to MSM: the Affordable Healthcare Act / Obamacare never was about healthcare. It was about enrolling suckers into what will become an international citizen registry and really sticking it to you later if you don’t obey...
Took it the barack-side.
