To mark the fourth anniversary of Obamacare, which was Sunday, I thought I’d share with you a story sent to me a few days ago by one of our readers. He won’t be celebrating, because if he makes himself sick with booze and has to go to the hospital, it will cost him more than before.
I’ve withheld his name and that of the insurer.
I have a family plan through XXXX, a small business plan. Keep in mind, I’m in the business.
My plan was a family plan, $1401 per month, no meds, no dental, no eyecare….but a decent doc group and no deductible.
My new plan, under ACA, same carrier is $1848 per month, I do get meds, but now we have a $600 deductible per person…. X4 = $2400 deductible.
In the past, I had options. We could buy what we wanted, self insure for the rest. We have lost that option. And our premium is up 32% plus the deductible, out of pocket increase is $7764 or +46%.
Here is another way to look at it.
You buy a brand new $30,000 car, cash, no lease, no loan.
You are a bit of a risk taker and decide you will not insure for collision, saving you a bundle, but you personally risk the loss.
If Obamacare takes over auto insurance, you will be FORCED to buy full coverage on your car, regardless of your means, desire, or capability.
Personal liberty is disintegrating before our eyes.
Keep the faith, it may be all we have left.
I fully understand that this is a lie sponsored by the Koch brothers, because Harry Reid said so a few weeks back. “There’s plenty of horror stories being told,” Reid said. “All of them are untrue.”
Nevertheless, I decided to run this, you know, just in case Harry DOESN’T KNOW WHAT THE HELL HE’S TALKING ABOUT.
