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 $46,000 worth of Government benefits. The study determined that if she went out and started working for an income, that for every Dollar she earned, she would lose approximately 80 cents in benefits...
... she was effectively in an 80% tax bracket! Why would she EVER choose to work.
Now, Obamacare is tranferring even MORE wealth from productive, middle-class citizens to people so dis-incentivized to be productive in any way.
We are doing EXACTLY what Greece has been doing for the past 20 years, people. It's insanity... absolute INSANITY!!!
Say "no" to the greedy insurance company and shop on the exchange. Some insurance companies are scaring people and some say it's to get people to sign up for high premiums when the same coverage is available for far less money on the insurance exchange. You'll also have choices of coverage, as long as the coverage has an unlimited ceiling, etc.. Note to those who don't need maternity care and are required to include it. People who need maternity coverage will be paying for your costs, even if it's prostate cancer or treatment for heart disease. How much do you think former vice pres. #$%$ Cheney's heart transplant, but contraptions before that, cost as compared to maternity coverage.
