I just got the bombshell letter from my insurance carrier last friday. It was HORRIBLE!
Although my actual premium is rising by 150%, from $203 per month last year to $509 next january (it's high deductable)...
... the $509 is what I pay for a "bronze" policy that significantly increases both my deductable AND my annual out-of-pocket.
Once you compare apples to apples, Obama is trippling my costs... and I'm middle-class (obviously, he doesn't CARE about us middle-class americans).
This is RIDICULOUS. The crisis here ISN'T whether the government shuts down tomorrow...
... the "crisis" is Obamacare!
Its a law though, and it was done through the proper channels of legislation. If the republicans had any real support or power they could have tried to stop this but they didn't and they don't. And the best part of this shutdown is that it guarantees more seats for the democrats come mid term elections. The republicans and teabaggers look like sore losers and they will pay dearly for there mistakes.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
you selfish rich you know what,you were suppose to ante up,you didnt earn it after all,this was the greatest transfer of wealth since the russian revolution,if you voted for obama you got what you deserve.just kidding on the first sentence.lol
I am guessing you mean "tripling?" Not a surprise. This is good for a very small # of folks and bad news for the rest of us. The uninformed have made our bed, Now we get to sleep in it. Fortunately, I can afford good sheets and don't rely on the economy or a regular job for $$$. Otherwise, I'd be in for a long tough slog.
Excluding subsidies, a comparison of the premiums to the Congressional Budget Office’s earlier projections of $392 per month for the second-cheapest silver plan (on which government subsidies are based) shows that on average plans are costing 16% less.
maybe your employer's subsidy of your health care has changed - your employer may be trying to push you out of their plan to reduce cost and push you into the exchanges - you should benefit with lower costs - ck again for apples to apples - something you are overlooking has changed. Our premiums are lower across the board. GL
