Oh, man did I laugh my ass of when I read this article on Obamacare and read about all the Bay Area pussies now angry that they have to pay for other people’s healthcare. The money quote from the article:
“I was laughing at Boehner — until the mail came today,” “I really don’t like the Republican tactics, but at least now I can understand why they are so pissed about this. When you take $10,000 out of my family’s pocket each year, that’s otherwise disposable income or retirement savings that will not be going into our local economy.”
Both Vinson and Waschura have adjusted gross incomes greater than four times the federal poverty level — the cutoff for a tax credit. And while both said they anticipated their rates would go up, they didn’t realize they would rise so much. “Of course, I want people to have health care,” Vinson said. “I just didn’t realize I would be the one who was going to pay for it personally.”
Fuck, it is absolutely priceless to watch these bigoted progressive idiots get it shafted up their ass and now act all butt hurt. Progressive idiots like this guy and this woman loved the stupid idea of letting the leftists politicians use other people’s money to buy votes, while giving government control of healthcare dollars, decisions, access, and availability. That was because they were stupid enough to think someone else would be paying for it. Now that they are realizing that they will be paying for it, suddenly its not only a bad deal, but they can empathize with those of us that pointed out that we would all be paying for it,and paying for it through the nose.
A frustrated Vinson went on the Covered California site to see what she would pay for the same policy if she lived in Los Angeles or Sacramento. She discovered she would save at least $100 monthly. According to data compiled by ValuePenguin, Santa Clara County, San Mateo County, San Francisco as well as Santa Cruz, Monterey and San Benito counties have some of the highest health insurance rates in the state. Covered California officials say that in addition to the higher cost of living here, more hospitals in the Bay Area are owned by hospital groups that can demand higher rates because of the lack of competition.
You know why they are paying less in shithole cities and you more lady? Because the bureaucrats figured there where more idiots to fleece where you live. Even the feds know you rob the bank because that’s where the money is. Have no fear though, the LSM comes to the rescue of Obamacare!
Not all of the sticker shock can be blamed on Obamacare. Health care inflation costs routinely increase at least 4 percent annually, said Ken Wood, a senior adviser for Covered California. Those increases, he noted, are due to an aging population and the rising costs of new medical technology and drugs, among other factors.
Yeah right. And the fact that said inflationary numbers have tripled since Obamacare became the law of the land is also the fault of the evil profit making private korporashuns!
But Wood, Wu and others also said premiums will rise as a result of people getting better insurance under the new law, which requires most Americans, with few exceptions, to buy health insurance no later than March 31, or pay a minimum $95 annual penalty.
Yeah, sure. By better insurance, they mean stupid plans that include benefits most of us would pass on – we won’t need them or use them – but now will be paying for. That’s like saying that while a minivan is an awesome family vehicle and not bad at $500 a month, a school bus is a better deal since it is bigger, even if you now are paying $3000 a month for it. Stupid is as stupid does. And the stupid gets better:
“I’m not against Obamacare,” Waschura said. “It’s just the initial shock. I’m holding out hope that there will be a correction over a handful of years.”
There will be a correction all right you progressive idiots. The costs will go up even faster. And that will be at the same time as access, quality, and availability go down. And that comes with an economy that grinds to a halt and an employment field that will be part time for most everyone because of this idiotic law. Don’t worry! Since you are progressive twits, you might be lucky enough to get the bureaucrats on power trips that make the life & death decisions to not shaft you as hard as he might want to shaft the people they really hate. Morons.
