"Obamacare will collapse under it's own weight".........Seventeen million people insured and the lowest amount of uninsured people in the country in over 50 years. Take your best shot at it! Florida will have to cave in soon or lose hundreds of millions of dollars. I hope your taxes don't go up too much. (not) Razz

Especially in Florida, where 800 thousand people languish without health insurance because of your stubborn governor. It is so nice of Governor Scott to deliver Florida to Hillary next year. Like almost all whiney Republicans he chooses to sue Obama on Medicaid funding, like we haven't seen the lawsuit playbook from the Republicans before! Rolling Eyes Good luck with that, Governor Scott!! elephant

Affordable Care Act Hasn’t Made Health Care Affordable, Study Finds


Despite its name, the primary goal of the Affordable Care Act was to expand health care coverage to millions of Americans who had been uninsured. And while it's done that - 15 million non-elderly adults have gained coverage - making that insurance "affordable" remains a significant challenge.

Government subsidies for enrollees with incomes below 400 percent of the federal poverty level were designed to help with that, but rising premiums and high deductibles mean that getting health care coverage and treatment remains a financial burden for many Americans. A new study from the Urban Institute shows just how high the toll can be.

The study found that the median single enrollee earning between $35,310 and $47,080, or a family of four earning between $72,750 and $97,000, will spend almost 15 percent of their income next year on Obamacare insurance premiums and out-of-pocket costs in 2016, even with federal government subsidies. The percentages increase for those with worsening health and those over age 45. And 10 percent of people in the income range the Urban Institute researchers looked at, between 200 percent and 500 percent of the federal poverty level, will spend more than 21 percent of their income on health care costs.

Although there's no objective standard for how much people should spend on health care, "a lot of people make the judgment that it's unaffordable and that makes a real impact," says Matthew Buetggens, a senior research associate at the Urban Institute and co-author of the study. A Kaiser Family Foundation survey found that cost is the main reason the uninsured give for why they lack coverage.

Of course, steeper health care costs aren't just limited to those covered by Obamacare - people with employer-based plans are also going to see larger premiums and out-of-pocket costs next year.

I thought the cost was going to go down with Obamacare...

Blinkered...

Post  News Hawk on Sat Jan 02, 2016 3:42 am

The term is also called "blinkered".


blink·ered1.

[ˈbliNGkərd]
ADJECTIVE

1.(of a horse) wearing blinders.

Or Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel's vacation to Cuba...


A liberal who jumps at the chance to vacation in a slave state-and thinks it's somehow adventurous or even brave to take your children to a place romanticized by left-wing utopians since it went Communist in 1959-is not only morally blinkered. He's banal. He's the sort of liberal for whom there is no difference between self-interest and the public interest-a trait Emanuel picked up from the Clintons. He rationalizes leaving the White House for an investment bank, using political connections to amass "$18 million in just two-and-a-half years," making six-figure fees from a board seat at Freddie Mac, and savaging anyone who dares question the priorities and self-righteousness and sanctimony of multimillionaires who "just want to make the world a better place." He joins the chorus in favor of criminal justice reform despite slow walking and obstructing an investigation into a police shooting for personal gain.
—Washington Free Beacon

There's Freddie Mac, again, Gov't making millionaires every year!

Evil or Very Mad

See Cuba before it leaves Marxism behind?
