It’s not going to be pretty if you happen to be one of the nine million people that are using individual insurance coverage and get it through the exchange known as “Obamacare”. You’re about to receive a shock comparable to two paddles attached to your chest! Clear!
The rates for Obamacare are coming out now. It looks like out here in the desert (where the Desert Man is going to have to suffer through five years of individual coverage) the rates are going up more than 50%. And I’ve been told by someone in the industry that every single major carrier has pulled out of this state. There is only one small company who can’t afford to lose money that is going to be the only choice I have if I go that route!
So much for every household saving $2500 a year on insurance premiums. So much for “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor”. The closest doctor to me under this new plan is 2 ½ hours away. And yet, there isn’t anything that is available to my wife and I other than COBRA because she’s retiring in two weeks. We can only hope and pray that we both stay healthy for five years until Medicare kicks in.
That’s the problem. There isn’t anything there, and as I’ve said all along, it was planned to fail. By failing, the government can swoop in and rescue everybody with single-payer healthcare. And that is going to bankrupt the country quicker than Obamacare will. Doctors are retiring at an alarming rate…medical schools have openings for people who barely finished high school, much less were at the top of their class in college. And the cost to become a doctor continues to soar, with no hope in sight of every being able to get out of debt. That’s not really what someone looking to go into the medical profession wants to hear right about now.
Meanwhile, the Democrat running for president says that if we let Obamacare fail on its own (which it’s doing) we are going to leave “20 million people without healthcare”. Well, that’s another Hillary lie. It’s actually closer to 2 million. There are only 9 million people signed up for Obamacare. 7 million of them lost their individual coverage five years ago when Obamacare came into existence, so they really didn’t get healthcare for the first time through Obamacare. That leaves 2 million that actually were helped. And we’ve thrown away 1.6 TRILLION dollars on them. Anybody want to do the math as to what that cost us?
This was a terrible experiment that went south quickly. It makes Frankenstein look like the FDA should approve that re-generation surgery immediately. And in the end analysis, THIS will become Bobo Obama’s greatest legacy.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
