congressional reports say Obamacare will cause skyrocketing premiums


quote:

An exhaustive study by three congressional committees delivers startling news about the dire effects of Obamacare: President Barack Obama’s signature legislation could increase health insurance premiums by over 200 percent and render insurance coverage unaffordable for millions of Americans.

Broadly, the new report declares that Obamacare “breaks its core promise” to make healthcare coverage affordable.

The report, “The Price of Obamacare’s Broken Promises,” was prepared by the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, Majority Staff; Senate Committee on Finance, Minority Staff; and Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, Minority Staff.

“Studies and analyses from the Congressional Budget Office, independent actuaries, state insurance commissioners, health plans, benefit consultants, and others have reached the same conclusion: Obamacare will significantly increase premiums,” the congressional report states.

“Some estimates show some Americans facing startling premium increases of 203 percent because of the law.

“Higher healthcare premiums are the last thing single young adults and working families can afford. Yet contrary to what the president promised, that is exactly what Obamacare is projected to do.”

When Obamacare’s most costly requirements go into effect in 2014, households earning as little as $46,000 a year will receive no premium assistance, yet will be forced to accept “unaffordable” premium increases, according to the report

He lied, we know. The left will give him a pass, as they know what he has to do to get single payer.

I don't think anyone didn't know that. Ask any medical professional and they will tell you that, and have been since before it was law.

It was the plan the entire time: make insurance unaffordable and push everyone to a single payer system.

Obamacare


frick this partisan piece of shite.

It got passed on the backs of a democrat majority and not a single republican voted for it. Is it any wonder why they rushed the frick up to get this passed before the 2010 midterms?

I still can't believe how they pushed this down our throats.

And frick John Roberts for not nuking this POS when he had the chance.

This more than anything else posted in this thread. It should have died last year with the Supreme Court.

re: congressional reports say Obamacare will cause skyrocketing premiums


Healthcare in the United States was broken before Obamacare. It's a delicate issue; healthcare needs to be affordable and accessible to everyone. It also needs to generate enough money for jobs in the healthcare industry to be worth seeking out.

You can say what you like about charity and private organizations serving the public and ensuring that people are taken care of; if that had happened, no one would have sought healthcare reform.

I think most people supported healthcare reform in some way or another, but this wasn't the way to do it and will lead to further problems.

I would support the repeal of Obamacare if and only if we could be assured that another solution would be passed within six months of its repeal. We all know that won't happen.

I wonder about this, though: Will premiums stay that high indefinitely, or will they begin to steadily decrease as more people receive preventative care, all medical bills are paid and the overall health of the nation improves?

It's a question, not a hypothesis. Someone with more insight should reply.

He just didn't have the balls to do it.

He basically gave the gov't damn near unlimted powers.

And once you give the gov't those powers, they will never ever give it up.

F-U-C-K Y-O-U

The primary reasons for skyrocketing healthcare costs are government intervention:

1) FDR's wage freeze and deductible employer insurance
2) Nonsensical Medicare reimbursement rate
3) The expansion of Disability Coverage
4) Underpayments of Medicaid

And now, like progressives do, you walk into system THAT WAS frickED UP BY GOVERNMENT, and demand that government take control of the system.

But it was a Republican idea that Democrats later embraced. Obama was tricked into this by Romney and the Rs.

This a pipe dream. Right now, every pregnant woman in the country is eligible for prenatal (i.e. preventative) care through government care. would you care to guess the percentage of government insured/uninsured women who take advantage of this government benefit?

Less than 10%

Irresponsible, dysfunction people aren't going to magically become responsible and functional because Congress passes a bill.

People should have seen when Obama said a family's insurance premium would go DOWN $2300 his FIRST term, but went UP $2500 during that time that the guy was FOS. But, the MSM didn't report it, so...

He never should have veered from the single payer angle. Take it off the backs of employers and reform medicare and medicade.
