Just spoke to someone I know, one-half of an elderly couple, and his premiums went up $3,000 for 2013. Same care, same coverage.
All due to Obamacare fears on the part of insurance companies. They're already passing on their costs to us, and they haven't even incurred those costs yet.
Just like I posted a link on Nov.14, indicating that those much more learned than I predicted this would happen. Good choice, that Obamacare. Cost of medical health benefits goes way up before it's even in effect. This was predicted even before the bill passed too, but did anybody listen? 50-point-miniscule percent of us didn't.
"THIS BILL DOES NOT CONTROL COSTS."
And as far as how Obamacare is supposed to get paid for, at all?
"The Senate Budget Committee Chairman said that this is a Ponzi scheme that would make Bernie Madoff proud."ObamaCare strips Medicare of a HALF-TRILLION dollars. That's $500,000,000,000.00.
20% of Medicare doctors will have to go out of business...
In the first 10 years, ObamaCare gives us a $460 Billion deficit, and in its second 10 years, it gives us--no, our kids and grandkids--a $1.4 TRILLION deficit.
Well, 50-point-miniscule percent of the American people didn't listen, not to any of those truths. Listening to all that would have meant you were racist, according to most liberals and their talking heads like Chris Matthews.
And while we're on the subject, did you know that almost $5 Million of your money and my money -- taxpayer dollars -- were siphoned off by the Obama administration to pay for TV and online ads so they could "convince" us that this was a good thing for all of us?
Oh, yeah. Read all about it. Did we get to say no to that? Were we even asked if we approved? No. Sure, it's another drop in the bucket, just like taxing the "wealthy" their so-called "fair share", but still, I didn't give Obama the green-light to use my paid taxes for his awful legislation.
