    ObamaCare: HAMMERING the Middle Class with Skyrocketing Health Insurance Premiums

     

    Once you consider the higher deductable and higher annual out-of-pocket...

    ... Obama TRIPPLED the cost of my health insurance.

    Biggest Middle Class tax increase that I've had to absorb in my entire lifetime...

    ... and from a president who promised not to raise middle class taxes.

    Worst President in American History, this Obama guy. Absolutely the WORST!

    • I think you are exaggerating a little bit...no...a lot. The vast majority of Americans are unaffected and many are in the middle class....Mostly, the poorer are affected and the jury will be out as to how they fare. All people on medicare are not effected. Most folks that have a plan through their employer are also unaffected, and that is most who are working. Those who have plans with their employer that were bare basic plans might have their plan now cost more, because the ACA actually requires insurance companies to cover many of the basic things where before they weren't covered, so yes, those people will probably pay more. The uninsured and those who were denied insurance due to pre-existing conditions will pay more, because finally they will have insurance where before they had nothing, and those with pre- existing conditions were forced to pay for everything out of pocket. Young folks who didn't want to spend money on insurance will of course have to pay more, because before they were uninsured and didn't want insurance, opting for the emergency room and stiffing the taxpayer. The emergency rooms will be used far less by poorer people, because they will now be forced to go to a doctor instead of run up $1000 in an ER visit. I will be unaffected, but to say it is the biggest middle class tax increase in your lifetime is silly. Why not look and admit the truth. You are paying the lowest rate of income taxes in the US in 60 years. You have been over given tax breaks that old folks NEVER had. Get over it.

    • I don't think there was a thing you wrote that was true.
