That includes me. My insurance premiums are TRIPPLING for an Obamacare "bronze" policy that comes "close" to the provisions of my current policy... but with a higher deductable AND a higher annual, out-of-pocket.
A friend of mine (still) who does not have a job (by choice... I have 2 jobs) is signing up for an Obamacare "gold" policy for 1/3 the premium that I'll have to pay for my "un-subsidized" bronze policy.
There are so many reasons for Americans to just quit working and suck on the government teit nowadays, that it's any wonder that anybody has an incentive to be productive any more... and Obamacare is just another reason.
Recall the University of Southern California study last year of an un-employed, New Jersey Mother of 2 who was collecting $46,000 worth of Government benefits. The study determined that if she went out and started working for an income, that for every Dollar she earned, she would lose approximately 80 cents in benefits...
... she was effectively in an 80% tax bracket! Why would she EVER choose to work.
ObamaCare represents the largest, Middle Class Tax Increase in Modern History, a"nd no middle class tax increase" is yet ANOTHER promise that Barack Obama made to us.
We are doing EXACTLY what Greece has been doing for the past 20 years, people. It's insanity... absolute INSANITY!!!
