OK guys, anyone who lost their coverage, it's all good now. Just got this on a CNN breaking news email:
He's sorry. Story's over.President Barack Obama apologized that some people are losing their health coverage under the Affordable Care Act despite his promises that Americans could keep their insurance plans if they liked them.
"I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me," he told NBC News in an exclusive interview.
I mean, if Victoria's Secret and Coca-Cola can't get it right, who's the US Govt to think they can, amirite?
You are right.
If you want to build a house in a neighborhood where all of your neighbors don't want it and those neighbors constantly complain, drag you to court, who then are the same neighbors who complain it took you too long to build and hate the color of the home as well.
So I am in benefits open enrollment with my consulting agency right now. I am a W-2 consultant so I have to pay for my benefits myself but I get the advantage of being in their group. If I were to buy the same exact policy as last year (which is available) I would pay an extra $110.02/month a 7.65% increase. All in all not horrible but still a bump and more dollar-wise than the OP pays with his premium doubling. Don't know how much if any of that is because of Obamacare. By way of comparison it went up $65.85/month between 2012 and 2013, a 4.94% increase. As you can see by the $ and % increases I already pay WAY too much for health insurance for a family of 4. It is what it is I guess.
By the way, this nonsense around the dropping of plans only affecting a small portion of the population... we haven't even seen the employer mandates go into effect yet. The CBO reports another 20 million people with employer supplied plans will lose coverage when that happens. Some studies put it at over 90 million.
I say leave it be and let it crumble this nation as intended. The people get what they deserve.
Its really a shame the Republican shutdown is hogging all the media attention, and there are lights shining on the train wreck that is ObuttocksCare.
Oh wait, that's not true.
It looks really bad right now. Any liberal saying otherwise is full of it.
The law is not working as intended, neither is the website and we have (liberals) argued for most of six years for something that is far more complicated and convoluted than implementing socialized medicine.
Definitely a big mistake. Don't really know the next step yet...
Yea Obama couldn't change a roll of toilet paper with out a toilet paper Czar!
