    ObamaCare: HAMMERING The Middle Class With Skyrocketing Insurance Rates

    Mr. Obama promised he wouldn't raise taxes on Middle Class Americans.

    I guess that because he decided to hammer us with huge increases in our health insurance instead, that that doesn't technically qualify as a "lie", but the result is the same....

    .... my huge increases in health insurance premiums are the biggest, middle class tax increase I've ever sustained in my lifetime... by far.

    My premiums went from $2,340 a year in late 2009, before ObamaCare first started impacting the cost of health insurance, to $6,300 beginning in january under the "individual mandate" of Obamacare.

    When you figure that my deductable and annual out-of-pocket are also increasing, that means that my premiums are TRIPPLING!!... and that's for the "bronze" package.

    Meanwhile, my brother, who quit his job last December, will get a much superior "gold" policy for barely 1/3 what I am paying. IS THAT FAIR???!!!

    We live in a society now where ALL the benefits go to the idle, and when you work your buns off at 2 jobs as a "productive" american, you get punished and slammed all over the place by these uber-liberal politicians and their socialist programs.

    I hear that Obama is hiring 16,000 new IRS agents to force me to comply, and I'm told that they KNOW where we LIVE.

    George Orwell, if only you KNEW... but, then, you DID know... you were just 29 years to EARLY with your pronostication!

    • Wrong but it is ok you think so. Middle class who buy individual insurance is 5% of the universe Most people save, get better insurance with lower future risks. higher income individual buyers pay more but have the knowledge no one can deny them in the future
