Obamacare is not "FREE" health care

People have finally realized that the word “free” is nowhere to be found in Obamacare’s “ Affordable Health Care Act”. Coverage under President Barack Obama's health care law won't be cheap. A study released Thursday by the nonprofit Kaiser Family Foundation found that government tax credits would lower the sticker price on a benchmark "silver" policy to a little over $190 a month for single people making about $29,000, regardless of their age. For uninsured people who are paying nothing today, this is still a big cost that they're expected to fit into their budgets.

The trend is bad. Young, healthy people are staying away, despite having to pay big penalties for going uninsured. Last year, a whopping 7.5 million paid the penalty, and millions more weaseled exemptions. More than half the uninsured eligible for ObamaCare chose not to sign up.

ObamaCare is on the ropes. Humana just became the third major insurer — following UnitedHealthcare and Cigna — to report huge losses selling ObamaCare plans. Industry experts say they’re likely to abandon ObamaCare altogether at the end of this year. Also, add Blue Cross Blue Shield to the list of panicked insurers. More bad news: Enrollment figures for 2016 aren’t looking good, with fewer young adults (profitable for insurance companies) signing up than in the past. ObamaCare is in what the insurance industry calls a “death spiral.” The Congressional Budget Office just reported that over the next 10 years, ObamaCare’s entitlements will cost $516 billion more than the law’s taxes and penalties will take in.

Oh so you think that these insurance companies wouldnt raise their prices after having price increases averaging between 15 %-20% a year ? Just imagine what the cost would have been if not for Obamacare !

Troubling signs about the Affordable Care Act and the state of health care in the U.S. have bubbled up in the last few weeks. The administration’s Obamacare enrollment projections for the coming year are down, the projected cost of premiums and out of pocket costs are up, nearly half of the insurance co-ops associated with the program are going out of business, and UnitedHealth Group, the nation’s largest health insurer, said it may withdraw from the government marketplaces in 2017. Hmmm…which party 100% voted for Obamacare without reading it?%

Obamacare will be repealed soon and the supreme court will get tarnished soon. Roberts was bought off.

It could apply...but I was thinking more along the lines of "Superstition" and "Voodoo Healthcare" that the Democrats have so handily crafted but blame lack of participation by the Republicans for its disasterous roll-out and implementation. It's rewrite or ultimate demise should be a foregone conclusion but sometimes many confuse failure when advertised as success.

The U.S.’s biggest health insurer is considering pulling out of Obamacare, a month after saying it would expand its presence in the program. UnitedHealth Group Inc. is scaling back marketing efforts for plans it’s selling this year under the Affordable Care Act, and may quit the market entirely in 2017, because the business has proven to be more costly than expected. It’s an abrupt shift from October, when the health insurer said it was planning to sell coverage in 11 new markets next year, bringing its total to 34. The company also cut its 2015 earnings forecast.

A pull-back would deal a significant blow to President Barack Obama’s signature domestic policy achievement. While UnitedHealth has been slower than some of its rivals to sell Obamacare policies since new government-run marketplaces for the plans opened in late 2013, the announcement may indicate that other insurers are struggling also.

So when the Cadillac tax is repealed it will be the Dems passing a tax cut for the rich. LOL

The great thing about the Cadillac Tax is that in the Rush to get the Obamacare passed the Dems thought they had snuck in a clause to wack the rich again forgetting that the Unions has held their health care plan for ransom and had the biggest Cadillac plans ever. Whoops!
