Like the car salesman in National Lampoons Vacation (played by Eugene Levy) said: You think you hate it now, but wait til you drive it! The same applies to the Affordable Healthcare Act (aka, Obamacare).
Now UPS has announced that it is cutting 15,000 spouses from healthcare coverage. This is effectively another way that Obamacare raises the cost of healthcare. This, of course, is outrageous, the government telling companies what they can and cannot do for healthcare coverage.
Why will you hate Obamacare once you drive it?
1. Forced forced home inspections by govt agents: Under Obamacare, government agents can engage in home health visits for those in certain high-risk categories. Those categories include:
Families where mom is not yet 21; Families where someone is a tobacco user; Families where children have low student achievement, developmental delays, or disabilities, and Families with individuals who are serving or formerly served in the armed forces, including such families that have members of the armed forces who have had multiple deployments outside the United States.
2. Government will use honor system for Obamacare subsidies. In order to get as many young people addicted to Obamacare, despite its outrageous cost, the government will use the honor system to qualify.
Ordinarily, young males wouldnt touch Obamacare with a ten foot pole unless they are bribed by government subsidies into taking it.
3. Obamacare raises the cost of healthcare premiums while lowering benefits. When government takes control of healthcare, rationing is inevitable. Companies are starting to cut benefits to avoid Obamacare taxes.
4. Obamacare did not lower healthcare premiums as promised. In fact, healthcare premiums are skyrocketing. And you probably wont get to keep you doctor either. But to be fair to President Obama, if he told you what was really going to happen, he wouldnt have gotten reelected.
5. Obamacare is so complex (and contrived) that it is difficult to put into place. See the American Action Forum for this chart of what remains to be done to destroy what was once the greatest healthcare system in the world.
And as Forbes reports, an unpublished CRS Memo reveals that the Obama Administration has missed half of Obamacares legally imposed implementation deadlines.
6. Obamacare penalties for failure to purchase Obamacare are steep. And many people are exempted. Among those exempted include: undocumented immigrants and Native Americans. The uninsured can also file for hardship exemptions.
7. Why overnment should NEVER be allowed near healthcare (or housing finance) in one chart.

8. Obamacare results in spouses losing healthcare effectively raising the cost per household. In addition to punishing young males with skyrocketing Obamacare premiums, Obamcare is punishing spouses as well UPS to drop 15,000 spouses from insurance, cites Obamacare.
The list goes on and on. Suffice it to say that Obamacare is a disaster and gives the government and the IRS unprecedented powers to reduce your property rights and liberties. Not to mention your healthcare.
The American Action Forum has an excellent discussion page for Obamacare. Please read it.
Instead of the platinum insurance program, lets be honest and just call it the Metallic Pea program.
Again, as Eugene Levy said in Vacation, You think you hate it now, but wait til you drive it!
Ha! There is not a Democrat on this planet that knows how to write and enact a law that robs our freedoms while simultaneously keeping the lesser implemented rules and regulations true the original of the law. Their politics demand blind obedience, however, the cleverness of business will always find a way around their rules. Good going UPS..
I’d sooner see this whole damned government shut the hell down completely than to enact any more immigration laws (not a damned one!). Let’s let DC struggle with the hardships the rest of this country have had to deal with outside Obama’s circle of friends.
When they come to the home of this veteran, they better damn sure have a warrant.
That is to the idiots in actual brown shirts that voted for this moron.
Actually, per the Atlanta Biz Journal, it’s 150K
It has always been a dream of mine to throw up a roadblock around the DC beltway, not let anything in or out, and see how long it would take for them to understand that the rest of the country buttered their bread.
Amen Brother. They better bring one when they come to my door too.
Under Obama what doesn’t?.
Doesn’t UPS know what bh0 promised?
Only same-sex spouses need apply.
