And the greatest lie of all…
I always love when a Liberal says he going to decrease the rate of increase as a “savings”. If you’re going up by 4% a year and you cut the rate of increase by less than 4% IT’S STILL AN INCREASE!
Remember, Sequestration, that great evil , was only about cutting 2% of a proposed increase and the Democrats were forecasting Armageddon!
But that’s the game you play with people you think are too stupid to understand that (and many of them are, but many got the cold reality bitch slapped into them).
HE DID BUILD THAT.
Looks like we need an update. Except it’s not Paul Ryan doing the Granny-Cliff-Throwing, it’s Obama and the Democrats who gave us Obamacare. To the surprise of no one, of course.
According to this, Obamacare premiums are so high, that people with chronic illnesses are opting to not even go to the doctor or get medication, because they just can’t afford it. The sourcelink cites the example of 61-year-old Michelle Harris, who has arthritis in both shoulders. But she refuses to go see a doctor because she just doesn’t have that kind of money. –
Michelle Harris is one of those people. Harris, a 61-year-old retired waitress in northwest Montana, has arthritis in both shoulders but is doing everything she can to avoid seeing a doctor due to the $4,500 deductible and $338 a month in premiums under her Blue Cross Blue Shield plan.
“It hurts, but we don’t have that kind of money,” Harris said to Bloomberg Politics. “So I deal with it.”
Wait… wasn’t the big argument for implementing Obamacare that people avoided going to the doctor because it was too expensive? That the EEEEEEEEEVIL insurance companies were profiting off the pain and suffering of sick Americans, so the Glorious and Benevolent Big Daddy Federal Government had to come in and put a stop to it? Pass the bill so you can find out what’s in it!
Well, looks like we found out what’s in it. And it’s just more of the same, only with gasoline poured on the dumpster fire.
The article goes on to say that even the people who have the Wonderful Sainted Obamacare still don’t know whether they can afford to go to the doctor, if they needed to –
Even though the uninsured rate in America is at a record low, a study from the Commonwealth Fund found that four out of 10 adults in Obamacare plans aren’t confident that they can pay their medical bills if they got sick, Bloomberg Politics reported.
“A lot of people are still one catastrophic illness away from really feeling the financial impact of this,” said Jonathan Oberlander, a health policy professor at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. “They’re underinsured, and that means they’re not going to get all the services that they want or that they need.”
So, what’s the freaking point of having health insurance, if you’re paying hundreds of dollars every month and it’s not even doing jack squat for you? That’s like making a car payment each month, but you don’t get to drive the car because it’s not even put together yet!
Of course, the answer to all this is We Freaking Told You So. Conservatives KNEW and warned people that this was going to fall apart. That it was not sustainable, let alone “affordable.” And yet, it was pushed through anyway.
Whatever Barack Obama’s precious “legacy” ends up being, this Obamacare mess definitely lands on his shoulders. If your insurance premiums have gone so high that you can’t even afford a simple checkup at the doctor’s office, blame him. (Chicks on the Right)
But like all Democrats, he won’t take it. He thinks he did right by you and you’re just a stupid, ungrateful, hateful Neanderthal. End of Story.
