Despite the panting sycophantic assurances from the fawning lapdog media that Obamacare is working out for everyone, some Americans are finding that health care unicorns and socialized rainbows aren’t what they’re cracked up to be.

How do some Americans hate Obamacare? Let us count the ways:

1) The cancellations!

2) The high deductibles!

3) The higher premiums!

4) The great website!

So what’s the diagnosis on the Obamacare rollout?

Exit question: Is there meta-Obamacare that Obamacare can sign up for and get some help!?

Full Twitchy coverage of the Obamacare debacle

  • Doc Farmer ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    And these political sphincters have the temerity to call this law the AFFORDABLE Care Act? It’s ObamaDoesn’tCare, and it’s Obama’s FAULT!

    • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (the true one)

      It is, and the fact is the left crammed it down our throat after midnight deals with members of their own party.

      Obama and the left own this lock, stock, and barrel.

      • Stephen Hafley

        Still lost in the recent discussion is how it was passed. They didn’t even vote on the ACA itself. They had to add it to a budget reconciliation bill (which had never been done before) to keep from being required 2/3 vote. AND passed that reconciliation bill late at night on Christmas Eve.

        • TexasMom2012

          All because Scott Brown won Ted Kennedy’s former seat because he pledged to vote against the ACA…

        • Yabetcha

          Reminds me of Jesus’ illegal trial, held at night!

        We need to remind everyone everyday the DEMOCRATS AND OBAMA own Obamacare.

        You are on target, ??SnowLeopard??, as usual.

        Here’s a pic showing the utter hypocrisy of ObummerCare:

    • jorskippy

      It is all about controlling the masses….and your income. Paying these mandated insurance premiums and deductibles, will financially destroy many hard working people….. but Washington does not care (except for a very few Conservative Congressmen)…..

      • TexasMom2012

        The high price of Obamacare is also going to cripple the economy because we will be forced to spend so much extra for insurance that we will not be able to spend in the economy for restuarants, clothing, movies etc. Obamacare puts the dagger in the middle class discretionary spending!

        • jorskippy

          Not just the Conservatives either…this effects all working Americans….Republican, Democrat and Independent. Probably the best thing to happen to Conservatives in this country….. NOV 2013 cannot come soon enough.

          • ObamaFail

            Nov. 2014 you mean.

          • FedUp

            Hell yes, I cannot wait…We will remember in November !!!!!

    • BeukendaalMason

      Not only is OCare failing in keeping premiums down (and in some cases deductibles) it is also the direct cause for INCREASING the number of people without health insurance. Government malfeasance at it worst.

      Subsidies mean nothing. You get nothing in return for paying a huge azzed tax. This is a crime

    • mercyonus

      it’s only affordable if you realize everyone has to pay for those who don’t pay and for all the extras in the law we don’t know about yet….gotta have that collective mindset. We are not individuals anymore.

    • Betsy Kerr

      I think the most important thing you say is, Obama doesn’t care. He doesn’t. No one really seems to understand this. Conservatives and republicans and conservative media talk about his “mistakes,” his inexperience, what he “should” do, and so forth, but all of this overlooks the fact that he makes no mistakes, he is doing exactly what he wants and intended to do, and doesn’t care a flying frig for anybody, not even those he might pretend to care for. He is a single-minded person with ONE goal. Because people think he’s just in over his head, and/or because he is black, they let it go and remain deaf, dumb and blind to his purpose. He acts mostly like a schoolyard bully, and a bully he is. He will get what he wants because of racism – black racism or white guilt, same thing. The evidence of buttkissing by certain Senators and Representatives and others like Jay Carney or Eric Holder and almost all media personnel and almost all of the celebrities is disgusting at best and evil at worst. In short, the prez NEVER thought he was doing good to create his health care reform law; he was creating further dependence on the federal government, more slaves; he was seeking complete control over the people. He almost has it.

      • NRPax

        I guess there is a reason Obamacare doesn’t cover ideological blindness.

      • Ronald

        The media doesn’t tell people how to think. You’ve consumed media for years no doubt and yet you are able to construct your own opinions. Why is that? It’s because people take in media, yet they interpret it in different ways.

        The real reason the Republicans are going to get the blame is because they are to blame. Nobody is blameless in this fiasco.

        However, Obama and the Dems are also taking a hit in their approval ratings. Nobody comes out smelling like roses.

        • http://lordfoggybottom.com Lord Foggybottom

          and how are the republicans to blame, genius? not ONE republican voted for this disaster.

          • Guest

            Damn Straight!!! Pretty sure there isn’t a Republican out there excited about Obamascam!!!!!!

        • http://lordfoggybottom.com/ BlahBlah

          This comment was probably a joke but I’ll imagine it was for real and respond.

          First how are the Republicans to blame for Obamacare when not a single Republican voted for it? Please explain where exactly would you like to put that blame.

          In those able to think for themselves do you also count the crowd who doesn’t even know which party Obama belongs to but free birth control and also Obamaphones and he is black! Or the crowd that thought that Sarah Palin was running as his VP in 2008. Or the crowd that seriously think that we who disagree with Stompy are in fact racists because black. Or to use again the example of my good friend that I mentioned in another comment today – well educated, reasonably intelligent and a staunch liberal, lives in the middle of Manhattan, knows how to use the TV and the internet. At the height of the IRS scandal he had NO clue there was a scandal, never heard of Lois Lerner and thought I made it up because in his words “Obama would never do that”.

          Did you mean those people?

        • Nov-cubed

          Nobody is blameless in this fiasco.<–

        • tops116 ✓Quipper

          So Republicans are gonna get the blame for something they didn’t vote on, that has been referred to for years as Obama’s “signature piece of legislation” and that has been nicknamed “Obamacare”?

          I was wondering if anyone on the Left was so hopelessly deluded as to think Obamacare won’t be bad news for Democrats running next year. Thanks for the answer, Ronny.

          • Dennis Carr

            Bush did it.. Geez, you forget so easy..

          • Megan

            Bush did NONE of this.
            The era of that president is over, and the only one you or ANYONE can blame for the crap that’s going on right now is Obama. Hell, the new health care system has his NAME on it, and even more sickening, he LOVES the name ‘Obamacare’. Why? Because he’s hellbent on turning this country into exactly what he wants it to be no matter who he has to step on, deceive or brainwash to get there. I don’t care what president anyone’s liked or not liked or even what side they’re on… Obama’s implemented rules, regulations and so on that NO ONE should be doing in this country EVER.

          • Debra Levine

            Megan, Dennis Carr was being sarcastic because the Democrats still blame Bush for everything : ) But you are right on the money about Obama. Biggest mistake our country ever made and they did it twice! Of course with the rigged voting who knows if he ever really won?

        • ObamaFail

          How are the Republicans to blame for Obamacare? The thing was passed with only Democrat votes and no input from Republicans. How is the Dems passing Obamacare without reading it anyone’s fault but theirs? Typical liberal morons. Can’t stand for their Gods to take any blame for anything, especially for the things they were entirely behind.

        • Debra Levine

          The Republican Congress tried more than 50 times to defund this trainwreck and now you blame them? Are you in absolute denial this was introduced by Democrats, fought for tooth & nail by the Democrats and Democratic Senate just absolutely refused to change one word of it! Yet now that everyone sees the Republicans were right, they magically blame them. Seriously Democrats need therapy, they are unable to distinquish reality from the talking points on television!

        • Glorious_Cause

          “The real reason the Republicans are going to get the blame is because they are to blame.”

        And the masses will fall for it, anon, as they always do. You can’t fix stupid!

    • conservativechick

      We should be able to repeal Obamacare just for the lies told and the misrepresentations, never mind all the changes Obama has been allowed to make. I liked my insurance but I couldn’t keep it, because it doesn’t exist any longer!

      • NRPax

        When I was working, my premiums went up twice and the plan I was on had been canceled. But the siren song of “free everything from the government” was too strong for the majority of people in this country.

          We own a small business and have had the same insurance for decades. We liked it. We can’t keep it. That’s all I know except a comparable policy is now twice as much!

          • The Penguin, Don’t talk shit

            Same here. Almost all of my employees are part time now and I no longer offer health insurance as a benefit. This sucks!

    • rambler

      And all the stupid kids grow up to be politicians.

    • winlass

      No we can homeschool those kids. And we can forget about the Affordable Care Act & just pay cash. Until all the law suits & illegalities are over, the insurance companies completely out of business & the medical community of naturopaths etc are obvious choices rather than standard AMA death care. Why empty your bank accounts for a bunch of losers? We can weather this storm. Be adults, life without insurance is not that risky. Done it for years!! You have been sold protection by a band of hoodlums & now they are arm twisting/shakedown for an all-time pay off. They are thugs & cons like the old mobsters.

      • NRPax

        I’m starting to look at chatting with my doc about cash prices and I’m saving up for medical tourism if I need it.

        • conservativechick

          We have always had catastrophic ins with a high deductible for cheap, along with our HC savings acct. Docs charge you less for cash! We had that forever and now it’s not available any longer. We know from our Doctor friends to save our money! There is always a doctor available if you have cash to pay! You won’t have to leave the country. There will be plenty of great docs who will take cash only first. It’s the same in every country with Socialized HC. It’s a 2 tier HC system, the rich or those with cash and the poor who wait over 2 years just to be assigned a primary care doctor! It’ll be the same here. Elites don’t care. They shove us all into some gov’t program. They will always have the cash to buy good health care. I will have mine, too. Saving as much as we can now. :)

Ok i’ll stop before I get out of hand.

          • winlass

            This is a marketing ploy from the old racket run by the mob called “protection” and they are squeezing for more $$. That’s all insurance has ever been really, scaring people into buying protection. In the meantime they get rich, wipe out the competition just like the old mom & pop grocery stores, gas stations etc. The parts forced upon you are going to court. It will take YEARS to iron out. Meanwhile the big insurance companies get filthy rich, then go “bankrupt” once the government takes over the industry. We don’t have to buy into AMA standard medical death care. We will go to the naturopath, bowen therapist etc etc & be healthy —-or die at home.

        • Chevypowered

          That is true nc but how many of them will blame their messiah?

    • ObamaFail

      Yeah, if the Dems keep the Senate and get the House next year, all that means is Obamacare will stay in place with no opposition. And we haven’t even scratched the surface of how bad Obamacare is yet. So far we’ve just seen the joke of a site and people’s premiums rising and their insurance coverage being dropped. What will be interesting is to hear the problems the first Obamacare patient has trying to see a doctor.

    • DutyFirst

      How many recall the big deal that was made about the free annual preventative medical visit that was going to drive down costs through early detection of medical problems, advice on lifestyle choices etc, etc. Well there it is, free once per year so long as it is with a doctor in the ‘network’. My providers nearest network doctor will be 100 mile away. Bye bye family doctor who knows you because you see him all year round. Go visit a complete stranger – about as effective as an army enlistment medical circa 1914 – two arms, two legs, not blind and breathing – you are good to go.

      • Joe Durnavich

        When I got my notice that annual preventative maintenance was free the next paragraph pretty much stated: oh, by the way, your rates are going up $200 a year too. In other words, I am now forced to pay for a free checkup (and then some) with no option of opting out for a year or dragging it out to once every 18 months to save a few bucks if I had to.

      • Stephen Hafley

        That one visit per year is in there but that footnote looms large. I live in the city within 10 miles of where 2 professional sports teams play but will still have to go about 40 miles to this preventative care Dr. who could be anyone depending on the day.

    • Michael Anderson (WB)

      And that deductible applies to both medications and services, that means if you’re on a life saving drug that used to be covered under a copay you’ve got to cough up $5K on your own to get it. Physicians and hospitals will generally bill you and accept payments, pharmacies do not.

      This transition will kill people in January, and I’m not speaking metaphorically. Someone is going to choose feeding their kids over buying their meds in the hopes that they can survive. And the MSM will blame conservatives* for it.

  • Michael Anderson (WB)

    For the average family this was supposed to target, there is no practical difference between a $12K deductible and no insurance at all. Well actually I guess there is, if you don’t have insurance and can’t afford it you qualify for help with medical costs. Those people will no longer qualify for that help.

    If the deductible didn’t apply to medications you could at least say it was doing something. This plan seems worse than catastrophic insurance.

    • AMSilver

      At least with catastrophic insurance, you had a lower premium. Now, since you’re paying full (or more) price for a catastrophic plan, all the money you could have been saving to pay the deductible in case you needed to use your healthcare is now going into premiums. That money could have been used to pay bills, to pay down debt (or keep from going into debt), to build a savings for education (which – theoretically – would help a person get a better job in the future with more money that would allow them to be financially secure through medical emergencies), starting a new business, or saving towards retirement. Those savings could also have been used for non-medical emergencies. The government is actively suppressing the middle class. They don’t want people to have social mobility in this country, and so they have to drain their capital to make sure they can’t improve themselves.

      • nc ✓s & balances

          Yes someone finally gets it. Just like with guns, it is not now nor was it ever about health care. It is about control.

    Crazy thing is that if your company offers insurance you basically have to take it because that is what the exchanges say according to co-worker. Well I work for a NFP/Tax-exempt HC facility that has invested tons of money on EHR regulatory compliance and all insurance related treatments are in-network so employees are basically customers so guess what? Our rates have doubled, my theory is that the expenses of the EHR costs are being dished upon the employees, as a customer I think that sucks,

    Everyone at the start knew the only ones who were going to benefit from this was the taker class.

      I’m not sure even the taker class will get much out of this deal.They are just too stupid to know it. Fewer and fewer doctors are taking Medicaid and I expect some of these 10 rate Obamacare plans aren’t going to be easily accepted. So while they have the illusion of coverage let them try to find a real doctor.

    When your deductible is so astronomical that you can never reach it, what does that make your premium, boys and girls?

    A tax.

    Sit back and light a cigarette, Obama voters, because you just got screwed. Your premiums are 100% paying for someone else’s insurance while you get to pay out-of-pocket.

    Don’t you feel good about yourselves now? Youre not racists, at least.

  • AmericanLass

    American people have been raped three times, once by obama, second by Congress, then by InJustice Roberts. But never fear I saw an article (a real article) that tells how to lower your cost of obamacare. It’s ingenious, all you have to do is lower your income. That way you can get subsidies, because all the middle class people will be poor. That was the agenda after all, to get rid of the middle class. There will be just the elites and the poor. Welcome to socialism folks !

  • RosiesSeeingRed

    Hey folks — hey Twitchy. How about we call Obama”Care” what it is.

    Every headline about the ACA should be ObamaTAX. This wouldn’t be law if not for SCOTUS making it a tax, so call it what it is.

    And anyway, Obama cares about our health about as much as he cares about the dog he ate. Why should that word be used on this legislation? It’s a lie, and we help spread the lie every time we use ObamaCare.

    Saying ‘I told you so’ at this point is cold comfort. I did however, tell you so. When will people realize the government doesn’t give a flip about saving us, the people who work any money? They are never satisfied and always wanting more of what we earn. When they can’t take more of what we earn they’ll simply make us work longer to increase their coffers. We are taxed from our first breath and beyond the grave. Dear Lord, save us from politicians and their greedy malcontent.

  • Stephen Hafley

    The prices are insane and deductible unreachable. The funnel in to it is small, so few will even see what’s there, deliberately, until the media goes to cover something else. Massive numbers of people finding out for themselves how disastrous this is personally is the stuff that provokes riots. I will be financially ruined by this.

    Did anyone ever think that this might be a set up? I mean we already know that the NSA knows everything we blog, email, post on FB, say on our cell phones….etc. So, how hard would it be for the Obummercare website to filter your information and send you to “lala land” instead of allowing you to see the plans? I think this is a planned project to be able to tax and fine the people in America that are not on the left in order to be able to pay for the healthcare of the ones that are on the left. You know the money for everyone getting subsidies has to come from somewhere, right? Just my humble opinion.

    Just to check, I checked into Obama care. When you do it shifts you to Covered California. I think gang rape is a polite term to use. Seriously WTF?! I pay about, (roughly, I will not give exact numbers, but they are in the ball park) $400 a month now plus a deductable $700 per person, and E.R. $100 and I am middle class.

    Obama care;
    Bronze; $643- $720
    Silver; $721- $947
    Gold; $997- $1175
    Platinum; $1199- $1357

    Deductible $…4000- $6350 depending on plan per person.
    E.R. $150- $250 Depending on plan.

    Oh, and as of right now my doctor is not on my list. I could not work at my job and pay for health care if my company decided to drop me. I would not have the money to pay for gas or car maintenance to get there. I hope you all are happy.

    So let’s do a scenario, God forbid happens, but is possible; If my family and I get into a wreck and we each need medical attention we have to shell out $16,000 dollars before the insurance even kicks in. Since health saving accounts are limited to $2500. This means we would still have to come up with $13,500 and that’s going by the cheapest route using the Platinum plan. With the Bronze we would have to shell out $25,400 before insurance kicks in.

    This too is before all the taxes from Obama care.

    Tell me what is so affordable about that?

  • Susan

    There was an article on the website for one of the local news channels last night, that said health insurance for teachers in our state could go up fifty percent. Our state legislature is trying to shift funds around to help cover some of the cost increase for them. This infuriates me because an overwhelming majority of teachers in the public schools here vote democrat. So as far as I am concerned they voted for O-care and they should not get help out of the mess than none of the rest of us will get. But again they vote democrat and are unionized so they feel like they can not let this stand when it comes to them! If you watch this clip and don’t get really angry you must be a dem or a teacher or both!

    FAIR? How is Obamacare “fair”?

That means people will be fined heavily as time goes on, because they can’t afford the premiums and deductibles, but most live paycheck to paycheck, now, and have a hard time affording health care! So, HOW CAN THEY AFFORD HEALTH CARE THAT’S DOUBLE TO TRIPLE of what they had before?

    • Artfuldgr

      you guys voted to redefine fair

      fair USED to mean that everyone putin equally without regard to their station in life…

      you redefined fair to mean that a poor person can order more than they could pitch in equally, as it was fair for the wealthy to make up the difference.

      ie. when the wealthy saw you would keep targeting them unfairly
      they decided to make all of you into prisoners so they dont have to deal with you trying t kill, rob, and take things from them just cause you have numbers.

            The crudeness of your statement, associating liberals with mocking the retarded, that very crudeness condemned when done by liberals against the Tea Party members, is simply offensive.

            I got his point, in fact, I agreed with it. My remark is what, in polite circles, is called humour, you may be unfamiliar with the concept, as it was not on that crude and vulgar level to which you seem so familiar.

            Perhaps, in the future, you ought to avoid the employment of those big words like “deflection” and “obfuscation” as you apparently do not understand their meaning.

            Faux intellectuals are so much fun. Your indignance and sensitivity are charming although superficial. If indeed your statement was meant to be humor then you may want to work on being a bit less covert; even satire tends to be a tad more obvious. Having said that, now that the secret is out your quip does deserve a chuckle.
            As for your citation of Locke, perhaps you should double check your spelling if you wish to come across as a true intellectual; the word is ‘intelligi’.

    Politics and politicians have failed this nation. Americans have been too casual with our constitution, and have allowed it to be murdered by 1,000,000 cuts over decades. Now politics has ultimately failed.

    The solution will not be found politically. We’ve lost that window of opportunity. The cliff of insolvency and collapse looms. Disdain for the very existence of this country and its founding principles and traditions is now demonstrated openly by our president and his party. Their only opposition lacks the resolve to combat them.

    I lament for my country, and the squandering of liberty and opportunity that we have imposed upon our children and grandchildren.

    “If you like your freedom, you can keep it. That’s a promise.” – Barack Obama

    Not a real quote, but just as truthful as the real one.

    • HJD

      One of the best comments I’ve ever read.

  • Jimni27

    Anyone know what the rhyme or reason is for who can keep their healthcare/ gets higher premiums? I have BC/BS ( private) and got a letter saying there will be no change, but it seems like a lot of BC/BS people are affected. Is it because mine is not through my employer? Just curious.

    • HJD

      how high is your deductible now?

      • Jimni27

        I believe it’s about a $1500 family deductible.

        • HJD

          I guess I’ve been wondering if they’re going to leave high deductible plans in place (HSA-types), even though they had said they wanted to get rid of them…

          • NCgirl

            we have an HSA now and in the letter it said that 2 of the bronze plans will offer the HSA option. I do not know if there is rhyme of reason to the increase – we also have BCBS private and were told it was terminated on 1/1/14 because it does not offer maternity coverage… rates up and deductible up.

          • Jimni27

            Had to correct my previous post to you- we have a $1500 pp/ $3000 family deductible. And being private insurance our premium is so high I don’t even want to admit what it is. I didn’t even know it increased two years ago. I don’t know if it was due to Obamacare .

          • HJD

            Thank you, it might be interesting to ask your insurance why your premium escalated two years ago, doubtful you’ll get a straight answer. Where there’s smoke, there’s usually fire! Good luck!

          • Jimni27

            I doubt it too.

  • Whizbang

    left-wing media is jumping ship. It must be bad. Democrats will be destroyed this coming election. Soon as Obama care passed and my medicare premiums went up, mu deductibles went up,, my cost of of living increase was hardly an increase, I moved out of the country.

    We can only hope that the unACA hurts lib voters deeply and painfully. I look forward with joy to the stories of ‘unfairness’ and feigned ignorance (‘I didn’t know…’ or ‘I didn’t realize…’). As Marie Antoinette is reputed to having said, “Let them eat cake.:” LOLOLOL. MWWAAAHHHAHAHAHAH…. Sadly, though, this will also hurt the intelligent public as well, conservatives and democrats who knew better and opposed this folly. But as long as the damned libs foisted this on us, may it hurt deeply.

  • Beng911

    This is ALL Bush’s fault! >snarky eye roll< Our insurance notified us LAST year our great plan was going away. Now I can pay out the nose for $600 per person deductibles or get it "cheap" for $3000 deductibles.. decisions decisions.

  • Bob Barker

    Come on, you all are smarter than this. You know why it’s happening! Once people have no option but “greedy” insurance companies that are raising their rates, they will beg someone to fix the problem. The choices will be “Return to the time when your pre-existing conditions weren’t covered and greedy insurance companies stole your money, or have a single payer system that is 100% government controlled and taken as a part of your taxes.” This is the end game goal, and has been the push since day 1. If you think different, you are stupid.

    • SkepticalQuery

      I dunno. It looks to me like the policies under the ACA rape the insured much better than existing policies ever could. I suspect those “‘greedy’ insurance companies” could learn a thing or two from our government. When a commodity becomes mandatory, you can charge whatever you wish and people will have to pay it.

      • Bob Barker

        Exactly. That’s why people will cry out for a change, and that change will be floated as back to how it was or “progressing” to single payer. We WILL have single payer healthcare in the next 20 years, can count on it.

      • lokelani

        The ACA has limited the amount an insurance company can take as profit. Therefore, it is not the insurance companies at fault. It is the outlandish benefits promised under the ACA, instead of getting a realistic, (bare bones but covers the real stuff ) policy.

    • Artfuldgr

      insurance companies are not allowed to raise rates when they like.

      they get rules, which tell them the break even point, they then add on their costs for employees and advertising etc.

      the FEDERAL government has been setting rates for over 30 years
      maybe thats why you bozos voted for this…

      you dont even know what or how it actually works!!

    My husband was told yesterday that his company will be dropping their ppo for a lesser coverage higher deductible insurance (still cheaper than obamacare) because of the aca…..he is asthmatic, has been all his life and has to take meds on a daily basis….well with the new insurance he will have to go out of pocket for his main asthma medicine (advair) that cost as much as a car payment for a thirty day supply because it’s not on the list of meds they cover. It’s the only one that works for him or he would change to a cheaper med. This man has busted his ass for this company for 24 years and has never paid more than 150 a month for insurance….it’s a sad sad thing what the liberals doing to the hard working taxpayer and our country!!!!

    This is exactly why Cruz and friends was saying and was trying to do something. If they managed to delay this for a year..hopefully there would have been a change in the Senate…thereby, able to fix this problem. Tea Party motto: smaller government, less regulations, less taxes, constitution…the media and both parties demonize this concept…why?…money/power. Now, the U.S. citizens will see and experience worst. More businesses will dropped insurances, work hours, more part-time (less than 30 hours)..for those who don’t know…30 hours is considered full time..(Obamacare law) …your hours will drop. And if you don’t get insurance you will be fined ($95 or 1% of income what ever is highest Each adult in your household and a fine for Each child in your home). And since the IRS is in charge of this…there goes your tax refund (if you owe). Do your research. Having the internet..there is NO excuse for being ignorant. Check your sources, graphs, voting past records, watch C-span to find out personally what each Representative is saying and voting. Don’t depend on sound bites by both parties. Don’t take the word of both parties….this is about your life, your families, your neighbors, your future and your children, your money that you worked hard for ($$$), your health (do you really think that Obamacare will pay for expensive surgeries for an individual that is past his/her prime…can’t work to pay taxes?..it is All about money).

    I’m still stuck wondering if my state’s Blue Cross Blue Shield “Bronze Plan” which they have told me I’ll automatically be signed up for if I do nothing is going to cost. The customer service rep told me ” We don’t know, frankly we know very little, as of yet”. They do know my plan doesn’t meet Obamacare standards, and it’ll be cancelled though. My Senators? They haven’t responded as to why I can’t keep my plan and my Dr. as we were promised. And I’m left wondering do I really want to put my info into an Obamacare exchange, that’s probably not secure at all.

Next you will be telling us that many private companies are desperately reducing benefits for their health plans so they won’t get socked with the 40% “Cadillac plan” surtax, while millions of Americans will have their hours cut to 29 1/2 per week so their employers can avoid this trainwreck.

        It’s heading off the cliff already. Yep, it was designed to work because they counted on young, healthy people signing up in droves and with MUCH enthusiasm, and they need the young folks to offset the costs of folks who actually use insurance because of medical conditions. And it’s falling flat on its face. Here in CA, the cheapest plan, (the Bronze Plan pictured above) costs $235 without a subsidy. If a person makes over $35,000/year, they do not qualify for a subsidy. I can’t think of a single person making $35,000 gross/year who can afford a $235 insurance payment for a plan that doesn’t really offer anything until they’ve spent $5,000. But ya, Dems had to pass it before folks could see what’s in it. Hi! This is what’s in it! Surprise!

    This is only the tip of the iceberg. I used to work in a medical office. The front staff is going to have to collect payment up front, because most people will not have met their deductable. That is a simple task for routine visits. But once you are accepted by a physician in his practice, he has to treat you even if you dont have payment, or you can sue the physician for patient abandonment. A physician can lose his license that way. The physician is forced to see the patient under this fear if the patient has an emergent condition, and not get paid. For this reason alone, I am willing to bet most physicians will not want to accept Obamacare patients. The practice that I worked for has gotten burned by patients not paying their deductable, but we had to see them anyway.

    So the healthcare.gov site was designed to allow 55,000 people a day. Multiply that by 180 days for the 6 month enrollment and end up with a maximum of 9 million people that could possibly become enrolled. Per the last census update, an estimated 46 million people in America do not have health insurance. Are you starting to understand how this plan was designed to fail? Those that do sign up will be raped with ridiculous premiums and outlandish deductibles. What’s worse is that people confuse universal health care with mandatory health insurance. This whole act is a fraud on the American people.

    My $400 a month policy is getting cancelled and I have two choices, I can either pay the same for worse coverage or pay $200-250 more a month for basically what I have now. Income just high enough that I don’t get any subsidy.

    Since I do not know how far down the rabbit hole this is going to go, I have already decided that my consumer and charity spending is pretty much on hold for the foreseeable future. I am a small business owner and have donated thousands of dollars to charities over the years. That is now been cut off, as well as most of my personal spending other than for essentials. As for hiring, forget it. We desperately needed health care reform in this country but this isn’t it. The ACA is a giveaway to insurance companies and a huge taxpayer paid boost for states who took the Medicaid expansion, which is an unfunded liablility. And, 30 million people will STILL be uninsured (their own estimates) whose health care will have to be paid for somehow.

    I warned and warned and warned till my fingers hurt but nobody would listen and when I told what my insurance would be I got called a liar. “PRE EXISTING CONDITION” Yup, you have to be accepted BUT you will pay big big bucks. So, if you could not afford insurance before, how are you going to pay for this insurance which is 2-3X more than what you could not afford to begin with. Oh, and the subsidy? HAHA! Oklahoma is suing because the LAW says that only exchanges set up by the state get to give subsidies. 36 states have exchanges set up by the feds so they don’t give subsidies. This is what happens when you don’t read the law! My favorite line in ACA is ” This tax is not a tax for tax purposes”. But I thought SCOTUS said it was a TAX! It is funny what happens when you actually read the law for yourself.

Just think how good it will be everything free and no more greed and racism. And if there is not enough to go around that’s good because we consume too much and maybe if 95% starve that’s good because there are too many people. Maybe we shouldn’t be so quick to criticize I think Obama has our ideas in mind.

    And, yet, analysis shows, it will be impossible to fulfill the mandated requirements of the bill without rationing healthcare. If I have to pay $300 to get in the emergency room, I will not go. But I have had a long life.

    I don’t understand why people are still saying this bill is good for them. I would want to hear a specific instance of that.

    And the indirect result of Obama being allowed to circumvent the law of our founding fathers will ruin what is left of “America”. You cannot fine people for refusing to “make a purchase”. If it is not a purchase then it is a tax.

    • Fungi2bewith

      And if it is a tax (Thanks, Chief Justice Roberts), the bill is illegal. All revenue bill MUST originate in the House. Obamacare came from the Senate! A challenge filed by the Pacific Legal Foundation contends that the Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional because the bill originated in the Senate, not the House. An appeal of a dismissal was pending as of 8/2013.

    • nc ✓s & balances

      The $300 is just to get you into the emergency room. It does not cover the doctor bills, tests, supplies or any other charges. These will run a couple thousand dollars minimum. And you will be responsible for all of it until you meet your deductible.

Be happy and pay YOUR fair share now….so I have to ask…is it as much fun spending your own money as it was spending other peoples? I am actually pretty content yet…my company insurance is still only $17 a week for my son and I…now we do have a $2500 ded but the company puts $1000 into a HSA account for us each year to help cover that cost so not so bad really…plus I have the VA to use as well…so I must say I really am getting a lot of joy every time I read some liberal post and cry about his increased cost…just a suggestion…next time think about what you vote for…not what is popular at the moment. Now shut up and pay your fair share.

      Leave it to the Germans to have a word for that feeling: Schadenfreude: It is pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others. One of life’s guilty pleasures!

      • dslodge

        lol always nice to learn a new word…even if I can’t pronounce it…but yes I love it when people cry over getting what they ask for…if you didn’t want it you should not have asked for it to begin with…and it is not from their misfortunes…if they voted for it how is it a misfortune to get what you asked for?And yes if you did not vote then that is the same as voting for it…that little excuse don’t get you off the hook like so many try.

        Now I do feel bad for everyone who knew better and voted against this in the last election…it is a shame they will have to suffer as well.

    If your child is a college student, chances are your new Obamacare policy won’t meet the criteria for acceptance at schools that require coverage for all students. That means buying the school’s policy (very likely a United Healthcare policy they shill) at a cost of $1,600.00 per school year minimum. Thanks, Barack!

  • debket

    Do you people live in caves? How can you not know or understand that Obamacare isn’t about providing affordable healthcare, it’s about control!! Wake up folks! And for you low-info voters who put the tyrant-in-chief in power….how ya like him now?? Your ignorance is responsible for the demise of our nation!

    Stupidity has a price. With Obamacare, a very high price.

    Isn’t it strange that Obama is exempt from his own policy, why? Has anyone on the left even cared to ask their leader why he does not have what he is pushing on the rest of America? America we need to cancel his life time retirement and not pay another dime for his care treat him like he treats us. That goes for those bastard in the Senate and house. Every union worker, we will stop buying the product you make and buy over sea. Fair game is fair game! You want to support Obama, go down with him.

  • Fungi2bewith

    All Night, everyone on MSNBC’s “All In” kept calling everyone who agreed with Ted Cruz “Crazy”, “The Stupid Wing of the Republican Party” and “dumb” “Southerners”.

    This is as designed. Bloodthirsty leftwingwackos want you to be bankrupt and poor, that way you are required to depend on the government (enslaved)

  • AmericanMom

    Obama, Pelosi, Sebellius and all are counting on their compliant voting base to sign up and then pay their penalties (because they won’t be able to afford the premiums) and increase Obama’s stash to the max. Count on the alphabet TV news anchors to suck up to Obama glorifying Obamacare in the months ahead. They should all be forced to sign up for it themselves but we all know that’s never gonna happen.

    People need to start paying a little attention to politics. Everyone thought that Obamacare was going to give them something for free. Well, nothing is free people, not even death. Just do the math. If insurance companies now have to charge the same rate to sick people than they do to the healthy people, then the healthy people’s insurance will naturally go up. It’s not a political issue, it’s a math issue. Obamacare is not about affordable health care, it’s about redistribution of wealth, similar to welfare, food stamps, etc. The gov. cannot do anything right but now it’s in charge of this nation’s health care. Well, you people voted for it. You were warned, but no one listened. Now, deal with it. It’s the law of the land. Not only is the ACA not affordable, it also creates another big bureaucracy. Have fun!

  • Invictus_Lux

    Eventually people are going to figure out that Obamacare is nothing but a program to force normal people of average to good health to subsidize and underwrite the unhealthy and the deviant life styles of Obama’s base – the LGBTs (HIV/AIDS care), boob jobs for the prostitutes and trannies, abortions/contraception/STD testing/ sterilization for the redneck and minority single moms and hookers, mental health/anger management/drug rehabfor the liberal Occupy anarchists types and gender reassignment surgery again for the LGBT. The whole program is a social tax on existence. When are the idiots ever going to learn that there is no free lunch? The age demographics of the country are inverted where all the youth are being aborted and the massive number of over 50 crowd is going to be counting on them to pay for their 20 med subscrptions per day and he Frankenstein organ donations when they die from getting drunk on the bars and on drugs and doing dumb stuff.

    America can’t survive Obamacare – it will be totally disobeyed and not subscribed to (until actually ill) or it must be utterly tossed out as insane..

  • rssllue

    Why does the left hate Americans so much?

  • heta

    I know I shouldn’t find this hilarious but I do. What did Americans expect? I mean, seriously. Did everyone think they’d get easy affordable quality government insurance? There will be more uninsured people than ever before because most can’t afford it. They’ll opt to pay the fine and go uninsured. I hope every left-wing voter feels the pain of this to teach them a very valuable lesson about Democrats and Socialism. Enjoy your redistribution of wealth, liberal geniuses! But, no one can say they were not warned about the damage Obamacare will do.

    • Berto

      Heta, a spot on comment. Americans who voted for the Obumbler expected free health insurance, free cell phones, EBT to last a lifetime, and those nasty people who hold jobs and make money were supposed to pay for all of it because they are selfish, greedy and mean. LOL. Don’t you just love the product of our nationalized school system? They cannot read, do math, or think critically. Funny how the grand plans of liberalism, when left to run their courses, work together in synergistic destruction of all things good. Libs; gotta love em!

        OBAMA! HE GIVE ME A PHONE!

  • CynthiaSpeaks

    ObamaScare PSA: Don’t despair friends! Pretty soon Obama will roll out his new Entitlement Program–Obama Premium Care–that will assist you with those pesky high premiums! Just as soon as the Republicans approve an unlimited debt ceiling you will receive your shiny new RED (!) EBT card. Just swipe, swipe, swipe and watch those unaffordable co-pays disappear! And by registering on the Obama Premium Care website as a “Red Card User” you not only tell everyone you are a Socialist of The Highest Order, but you are automatically registered for our Annual Unlimited Benefits Day where you can spend, spend, spend just like your closest EBT friends & Walmart shoppers!

    I’m only half-kidding.

    I’m sure glad this is President Obama’s and the Dems baby. I would hate to have this albatross hovering above the conservative GOP’s head! Just think, most Government programs start out good but get worse over time.

  • John

    YOU voted for CHANGE, YOU wanted free money, YOU wanted the government to take care of you. YOU wanted free food. NOW you are paying the bill SO QUIT BITCHING> THIS is what you voted for!

  • Mach1Duck

    Come on folks, what did you expect…It is a government run program.

  • jhsif

    Who’s da bigot now Amerika?! Remember how only racist bigoted bullys did not want Obama almighty for president?! WHO’S DA BIGOT NOW?! Sign up for Obamascare or get audited! Report EVERY Obama-WORSHIPPER that refused to sign up for Obamscare to the IRS immediatly! Perhaps the public service people can make this as popular as report every drunk driver immediately! (except for Ted Kennedy of course! Only a liberal democrapic senator has the right to drink and drive laws don;t apply to them!)

  • dwstick

    To all of you out there who voted for Obama (twice), and voted for all the Dem Senators and Representatives who rammed this fiasco of a law down our throats without permitting any time to study or debate the matter, and who are now finding themselves being forced to pay double, triple, or more for lower-quality healthcare, I say this: You own it! No Republican voted for this! Republicans fought to defund it!
    Despite all the taxpayer $$$ pouring into this bottomless pit, it is unworkable and cannot be sustained. But it is the law. It is the law YOU wanted.
    Having trouble logging on? Establishing an account? Sticker shock? Upset that so many people have gotten waivers and exemptions, but not you? Angry that Congressional staffers and other government employees have been given a subsidy (at taxpayer expense) equal to 75% of the cost of their health insurance, but not you?
    Then contact the LOCAL office (office nearest where you live) of your US Senator and Representative and inform him/her of your extreme displeasure. Contact him/her even if she’s a Democrat. ESPECIALLY if he/she’s a Democrat!

    The Bible: Work or Don’t Eat

    One thing I love about the Bible is that it takes a hard stand on people who try to just “get by” and feed off others without doing a lick of work themselves. Here’s my favorite verse on this topic:

    For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “If a man will not work, he shall not eat.” 2 Thessalonians 3:10

    Yep, don’t work, don’t eat. I think that says it all.

    Notice that it doesn’t say that those who CAN NOT work should not eat. No, we should have compassion on and help out those people. But if someone can work, yet WILL NOT work, then he’s left to the consequences of his actions (or inactions in this case).

    Here are a couple other verses on this same line of thinking:

    Lazy hands make a man poor, but diligent hands bring wealth. Proverbs 10:4

    How long will you lie there, you sluggard? When will you get up from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest — and poverty will come on you like a bandit and scarcity like an armed man. Proverbs 6:9-11

    So get out there and work! Or find a way to survive without eating. 😉

    I get good health care in Costa Rica for $40 per month. Covers everything 100% no deductible. There best plan is $1,100 per person and you choose your own doctor. When you visit Costa Rica and say you have a broken leg or need stitches, it’s free. Move to Costa Rica. No one talks about politics there. There is a better place to live then here. Banks pay great !
