President-elect Donald Trump revealed in an interview with The Washington Post that he’s almost finished with a plan to replace ObamaCare and vowed to have “insurance for everybody.”
Screw Obamacare. How the hell can one collect a “tax”, when one isn’t working? Over half the country don’t have jobs. More scare tactics by one “dictator in chief”. Americans will see their bank accounts shrink if they don’t sign up for Obamacare in its second enrollment season.
The elections in November, will soon be here. Democrats have a new worry that may be difficult to spin: Where did the promised $2,500 savings in health insurance premiums go? While campaigning for president in 2008, Obama repeatedly said his healthcare plan would reduce the typical family’s annual premiums by up to $2,500 per year. Often, he did not include the caveat “up to,” simply saying the “typical” family would save about $2,500 a year on premiums.
These families can now thank Obummer for totally screwing up their lives. In New Jersey, there are about 1,800 families that have just received notice informing them their children would be losing their health coverage because the Affordable Care Act effectively eliminated a state program for low-income residents. Obamacare’s new mandated requirements forced the closure of New Jersey’s low-cost children’s insurance coverage plan, FamilyCare Advantage.
There’s a chain of Florida restaurants are making customers pick up the tab for the company’s mandatory participation in the Affordable Care Act — with a surcharge to every bill to help cover the cost of providing healthcare to their employees. Eight Gator’s Dockside restaurants have started putting an “ACA Surchar” on every customer’s bill. The new charge adds one percent to the total check, which would mean 15 cents for an average $15 lunch.
She is sure trying to hoodwink the American people. This law was designed to destroy private insurance, force us into a single payer plan, and destroy jobs. HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on Monday called the idea that the Affordable Care Act will lead to fewer jobs in the United States a “popular myth.”
U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann says congress should pass the anti-bailout bills currently in Congress to prevent health insurance companies from profiting at the expense of taxpayers. Bachmann, R-Minn., said Americans don’t want to see “bailout fever” in Washington. Bills by Rep. Mike Coffman, R-Colo., and Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fl., call for the government not to aid the insurance industry in the event that its profits fall below projections because too few young, healthy people sign up for heath coverage.
Vermont wants to create a government-run alternative know as a “single-payer” system — and it’s starting to attract more attention from liberals frustrated with the Affordable Care Act’s implementation. Democrats no longer have any faith in Obamacare, and have lost faith in the exchanges and don’t care for the fact that they were lied to when they were told that premiums would be low.
There are 11 state Attorneys General that are slamming the Obama administration for making repeated changes to ObamaCare without consulting congressional lawmakers, which they say is illegal. HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius received a letter in which the group specifically criticizes the administration’s decision to allow insurance companies to sell policies that would otherwise be out of compliance with the Affordable Care Act for another year.
In order to control costs of new individual health policies has led two of Washington’s biggest insurance companies to exclude Eastern Washington’s largest hospital, and many of its physicians, from their networks of preferred providers. Those that have been hit by the exclusions are Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center, Providence Holy Family Hospital and about 500 Spokane-area physicians that Providence has added to its network over the past few years.
