Gas also used to be less than $1 a gallon and a can of coke was 25 cents

You people are hilarious. It was designed to fail. To be too expensive for non-takers. And all for a very specific reason which I’d be shocked if you were honest enough to admit.

My plan implemented all the Obama care requirements the first year. Premiums and co pays immediately went up approximately $2800 a year. No other increases for the first two years of Obama care but since then moderate increases in premiums deductibles and co pays every year.

Nah just putting stuff into context. Ppl are talking about what they use to pay 10-20yrs ago. We’re a long way from that.

You’re high if you think Obamacare didn’t drastically negatively affect working people’s health insurance costs - both out of pocket and premium.

Did I say that? I agreed that it failed. You just want to argue.

When you go to the doctor (other than the most routine things that stay routine during the visit), you have no idea what you are going to have to pay for and how much it will be. Until we address this we will all pay too much



Trump administration announced new rules like a week ago that will require almost all insurers to list their contracted prices with providers for 500 services by 2022 and all services by 2023.

Once ACA came out, they had to pay higher rates to medical providers; therefore, increasing our premiums and forcing smaller companies out.


Really? Not to doctors or pharmacies. We've seen nothing but cuts and bull shite that drives overhead up.

Health insurance cost had been trending up for well over a decade. I mean that was the entire reason so much focus was on Health insurance in the first place.

That's funny because I had health insurance through my employer for 10 years prior to Obamacare and never changed my coverage (I was always single at this point).....the amount never increased enough for me to notice it in my paycheck. Also, my employer never complained about healthcare costs like all companies do now in communications to all during Open Enrollment.

The argument on healthcare costs increasing exponentially prior to Obamacare doesn't hold water to me....they started increasing exponentially after Obamacare.

re: What was health insurance like pre Obama care?
I’ve had the same employee provided health insurance for 41 years. The annual premiums either saw no increase or increased slightly until the year after Obozocare became effective and then BOOM! the premium/deductible skyrocketed by $3,500 annually. I imagine the insurance companies and people getting free/cheap health insurance at my expense are pretty happy. I’ll be on Medicare/supplemental ins in 2 years and look forward to joining the rest of the moochers.

Premiums were much lower, deductibles were much lower.

Democrats took a situation where people thought healthcare was to expensive and managed to make it much more expensive to everyone who was paying for it.

re: What was health insurance like pre Obama care?
My family plan went from about $280 a month to almost $800 a month and for shittier insurance. For this reason Obama is the worst president of my lifetime. Laughable to think he swore up and down that premiums would go down not up. I am sure he gets a good chuckle over that one every now and then.

re: What was health insurance like pre Obama care?
Imagine if you will, if you had the ability to buy full comprehensive car insurance AFTER you totaled your car, and that the insurance would pay to fix it for you. Now guess what that would do to your car insurance premiums.

My insurance premiums have gone up over 400% with obamacare. It was ACTUALLY affordable before, and company policies I was offered always covered pre-existing conditions after an initial wait (anywhere from 3 months to a year).
