Democrats finding Obamacare bad

Published 9:40 am Wednesday, October 30, 2013

We are now learning that hundreds of thousands have been dropped from individual and employer health plans and are getting sticker shock over their new plans. Businesses are cutting hours and even dropping employees. This is no childish trick or treat; it’s definitely scary for lots of folks.

Sue Klinkhamer worked for Congressman Bill Foster, D-Ill., and defended Obamacare. “I have now learned that I was wrong. Very wrong,” she said. She was paying $291 a month with a $3,500 deductible as of Sept. 1. The Chicago Sun-Times reported Klinkhamer received a letter from her insurance company, as many are. “Blue Cross also tells me that if I don’t pick one of the options, they will just assume I want the one for $647 … Someone please tell me why my premium in January will be $356 more than in December?” she added.

“Cindy Vinson and Tom Waschura are big believers in the Affordable Care Act. They vote Independent and are proud to say they helped elect and re-elect President Barack Obama … Vinson, of San Jose, will pay $1,800 more a year for an individual policy, while Waschura, of Portola Valley, will cough up almost $10,000 more for insurance for his family of four. Waschura said; ‘I was laughing at Boehner — until the mail came today.”

“I really don’t like the Republican tactics, but at least now I can understand why they are so (ticked) about this. When you take $10,000 out of my family’s pocket each year, that’s otherwise disposable income or retirement savings.”

In an Sept. 30 AP article Calvin Woodward stated, “McCarthy (Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif.) is correct, Obama said exactly that. It was an empty promise, made repeatedly. Sebelius picks her words more carefully but still offers misleading assurances.”

From NBC News (Oct 28): “Four sources deeply involved in the Affordable Care Act tell NBC News that 50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a ‘cancellation’ letter. … One expert predicts that number could reach as high as 80 percent. And all say that many of those forced to buy pricier new policies will experience ‘sticker shock.’”

A 2010 IRS document states similar findings.

On several occasions (2009 to 2012) Obama has stated you could keep your insurance. In 2009: “If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan. Period.” Barack Hussein Obama is a socialist (at best), deceiver and liar. Period.
