You are obviously arrogant and too dumb to understand the underlying wisdom of your leaders.

Also f'd up is that b/c you spent all that time in school and found a way to earn a decent living, you won't qualify for the subsidies.

They passed a law that will make healthcare more expensive and less available for everyone but the poor, who already got free healthcare when they needed it.

Get ready to join the "marketplace", where income redistribution will be in full effect.

It's really amazing they were able to get away with this with very little negative political effects.

re: The Government thinks I'm stupid and I make bad health care choices


quote:

During World War II, the ethos was “use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.” But the 21st-century rallying cry among the young is “We are the 99 percent.” This recession’s emphasis was never on making do with little; for many millennials, it has seemed more about wondering why they had to make do with so little when so few had so much. This sentiment was captured in recent exit polls that found that nearly two-thirds of presidential voters 29 and younger thought the American economic system favored the wealthy.


The problem is all of these middle class kids are realizing their lives will not likely be as comfortable as their parents lives were, and they're looking for someone to blame. Obama comes along speaking their language and promising to soak the rich, and they eat it up.
Never mind that he wants to destroy the system that enabled their parents to live the high life in the first place.

I've got a family policy (4 ) where we pay 935 a month with a 3800 family deductible and I recived a letter this past weeked stating the plan may not be available in 2014 due to the affordable care act. In doing so they invited me to meet with my agent to discuss my options. Obviously the new comparable plan will undoubtily cost more, from my own investigation my existing plan will turn into a 20-22k a year comparable plan..


Do people really pay rates this high? Goodness.

I pay about $90/month through work for a great plan for just myself.

That's not what they're telling you. They're telling you a bunch of other people make bad decisions and the only way to help them is to screw you. That's the way our one size fits all government works. It's why the education system is so fricked.

i currently have a high deductible plan. even though my monthly rate has increased over 30% since Obamacare was voted on, it is still reasonable at $125 (i think) per month. my plan will become illegal under Obama (and my insurance company has already notified me that the underwriter will discontinue my plan after this year, so i have to hope they find a new underwriter or get a new policy)


Hold up. WTF is this shit?

quote:

Ms. Sebelius added that those customers currently pay more for their health care if their plans have high out-of-pocket costs, high deductibles or exclude particular types of coverage, such as mental health treatment.


And what in the motherfrick is this nonsense about paying more with a high deductible plan??

I have a high deductible plan. I am fully covered after a $2k or $2.5k deductible. I dunno which it is. Haven't been to a doctor in a decade.

I think I pay $15 a month for my plan.

And someone is saying I can't keep my high deductible plan? Or that I pay MORE for my healthcare right now??? $15 a month is MORE???

WTF? Somebody's arse is gonna get kicked if I can't have a high deductible plan anymore and have to pay for some bull shite I haven't used in a decade and only have for an emergency catastrophic situation.

Now you must have a Gold, Silver or Bronze plan.

Prepare your anus....oh wait, should we just bump your posts extolling the virtues of obamacare instead?

How you defended this shit, despite what people told you?

Nah, you wouldn;t have been so stupid as to have not even looked at the realities of the situation...

I have mostly said I do not know much about it and really don't care.

I'm going to get pissed if I can't have a high deductible plan though. That is all I have ever had and have been very happy saving thousands over the last decade because I work out, hit the gym and don't need it.

maybe you should have thought about that before casting your vote in November. Your plan is gone dude. It is now illegal to even offer such a plan.

You know...actually became INFORMED on the issues at hand. Nah, it's easier to just trust Obama is cool, right?

My plan is not going away.

I have decided I do not believe this jibberish and I will keep my high deductible plan.

I also have a HD plan and carefully scrutinize bills. My doctor was shocked when I pointed out to him that two of the blood workups he'd ordered had significant overlap and the tests were about 2/3 the cost if done individually. He honestly had no idea b/c nobody had looked at it.

That's the worst kind of liberal...the one who only finds problems with overbearing legislation when it directly affects them. Until then, he supported it because he was told to by his party, but didn't really care.
