Another Obamacare success story about a woman who finally got through the website, but was then hit with sticker shock and says can’t afford Obamacare insurance plans for her husband with a preexisting condition:

Obama’s answer? “Get a new husband!”
Or just give him a pill and hope he gets better
The monetary version of death panels.
Interesting perspective. I believe another such design are the cuts to Medicare which will result is unseen denial of treatment and early termination.
People on Medicare and Medicaid are already dying sooner and unnecessarily. It will not be noticed except by a few. It will be reported by no one.
I’m sure I’ve said this before, but I’ve always looked at this gov’t controlled insurance scheme to control/deny coverage thereby reducing the “unfunded liabilities” of both SS & Medicare. It isn’t just old people who receive SS benefits, but the most fragile among us.
I agree with you. Also, the death tax rose to 55% in ObamaCare including family farms (control of food supply)
I actually saw something the other day, 50% higher mortality but I can’t find the link at the moment.
It doesn’t sound far off the mark. Speaking for myself, I will go without medical treatment for a life threatening disease before I participate in this atrocious scheme done absolutely without the consent of the governed. I wrote both my senators about it when I read the initial details in the stimulus bill and I’ve not changed my mind.
which one? red or blue?
How is that ‘hopey-changey’ working for you now?
The gestapo is in over drive trying to “rebrand” this fiasco, and that too is on our dime.
Get ready for another recession/depression because of Obamascare.
People don’t have spare money now… Something has to be done to stop this monstrosity!
Excellent observation; I think the market is topping out and expect a significant correction that might be the beginning of the next recession or even worse a worldwide depression.
About a year ago, I did a long term analysis of market trends and the result was when the S&P hit 1800, the market would crash. At that time the S&P was about 1550 as I recall. If the S&P rallies from here and closes above 1830, then I’m WRONG.
However, when you have stocks like Twitter which sold as high as $44 per share on it’s IPO, that’s a sign similar to the warnings of the Stock Market Crash in 1929 which began the Great Depression.
Twitter has never earned a penny since it was founded in 2006. It has lost money every year since it open its doors and people are buying it over $40 a share.
That’s ludicrous. In fact, the only thing driving the market up is the Federal Reserve’s quantitative easing’ (buying $80+ billion of US bonds/month) which has kept interest rates artificially low while America’s continue to print worthless dollars.
And Obamacare will bankrupt millions of middle-class Americans who had health insurance and most likely will lose it next year.
Thank you. I guess bottom line the goal is to eliminate the Middle Class, and start a dictatorship.
At the rate the gov’t is printing money to prop up the stock market and a Communist as the new Mayor of NYC, where the financial markets are located, along with the terrorists Obama is sneaking in, the time may well be near. He desperately needs martial law and the only way that will happen is an attack on US soil…..
Did you vote for the “miracle” maker/s?
Even with the cold hard truth, there was still plenty of spin in that piece.
And exactly who is this “affordable” for, besides illegal aliens?
I think all his groupies and OFA people are going to be provided subsidies and smaller deductibles. And of course the subsidies are increased premiums paid by the working stiffs.
He did wave his magic wand and redistributed the union per member fee to non-union people to pay. Just another unconstitutional action.
I read that anyone who earns more than $35,000 will be paying some part of an indigent’s premium. If people can’t recognize this is a hidden income tax …
It is a very low level of earnings. Funny thing (okay not so funny) the people subsidized aren’t indigent. It’s based on income not assets so they could have a million dollar house and not working yet receive a subsidy. Food stamps, welfare, child support, public housing also omitted from the “income” equation.
Income/assets was something I did not know. Incredible isn’t it. But they will tax unemployment while someone is trying to find a job. It’s all a big scheme to take all the fruits from our baskets isn’t it. A big game to the criminals in DC. Sick crapweasels.
I’m not feeling really good today so please forgive my acerbic comments. They’re true but not in any way refined.
I hope you feel better soon.
Thanks. Me too, though if I don’t at least I still have good insurance and a good doctor … for the moment
She thought this was the “miracle?” Oh yes, government as Santa Claus delivering a bag full of Christmas miracles to every home on the same day with a mere signature.
The cost to the individual is akin to indentured servitude. Forcing people to work themselves to death to pay for a mandated, over priced insurance so that the state can redistribute those funds to others they feel are more in need..
Remember that in order to qualify for subsidies, you have to make a certain income! If you take a second job, you could risk losing that subsidy. And,,,,,,you will be TAXED more! It’s the catch 22 of this ginormous CRAPSANDWICH!!!
all of the horror stories of people being financially destroyed by oblamercare need to be asked who they voted for president, house and senate. they need to know its their fault if they voted for those imposing obamacare and they are to be blamed.
just like this twit….”I thought this was going to be the miracle for us….but its not”
she would have been fine with it if she was the one stealing from others, but when its stolen from her, shes butthurt. cry me a freaking river.
“Who did you vote for in 2008 and 2012 for Prez?” is the 1st question I ask anyone belly-aching about their cancelled health insurance
I ask Obama voters why I should care about them if they couldn’t be bothered to do some research before they voted.
who they vote for in the house and senate is important too. lockstep among the dems.
Well the GOP funded Obamacare for years through continuing resolutions so they are also to blame.
Not only do we need voter id’s but an iq test as well. If she thought this was going to be a good deal she should not be allowed to vote. Lord knows what else she believes if she she thought government was going to make things better for her.
Boys using girl’s bathrooms, pedophilia is a sexual preference….just tossing a couple out there from a west coast state…..
While Obamacare is destroying people’s lives and with the horrible rollout and all those darn glitches at Healthcare.gov, Obama is hitting the road to campaign once again on the marvels of the un-Affordable Care Act.
“…President Obama and the White House are restarting their campaign (again) to sell the health-care law to get uninsured Americans to enroll in health plans. Beginning today and lasting through Dec. 23 — the deadline to enroll to get insurance beginning on Jan. 1 — the administration will hold an event per day to promote the law…”
Only someone suffering from clinical narcissism combined with being a pathological liar would have the audacity to hit the campaign trail and tout Obamacare NOW.
It’s no longer “Obamacare”, didn’t you get the memo? He now touts it as the Affordable Care Act. Of course we all know it’s anything but affordable, just waiting for the sheeple to catch on.
Indeed; I’ve been referring to it as the un-Affordable Care Act going back to August.
We are now living in a world of carefully controlled news/entertainment/socialmedia propaganda peddled to 2 generations of a population whose minds are a product of government schools and universities.
What Obama is doing fits that model well.
When sufficient wealth has been transferred to Hussein’s patrons and sufficient numbers of illegal aliens are in place to work for them, America will wake up to an ugly reality that will make Obamacare seem inconsequential.
How sad, yet so true; Obama has fundamentally destroyed our nation and will still waiting for these mule-heads to wake up -fracking unbelievable.
Take a look at this from today.
I’m sorry for the dealy in replying – I lost acess to internet for much of the day.
When ultra leftist George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley, testifies “there could be an “uber-presidency,” which he said would endanger individual liberty,” then WORRY. He went on to state, “the president is required to faithfully execute the laws. He’s not required to enforce all laws equally or commit the same resources to them,” he said. “But I believe the president has crossed the constitutional line.”
If Obama loses the far-left loons like Turley, then Obama and more important, American’s are in far greater danger than wee thought.
Thank you for your reply! Put this together with the Iran deal and Obama throwing Israel under the bus again. The world should be worried.
She voted to add a one trillion dollar government regulatory bureaucracy on top of a 1 trillion dollar industry and she expected costs to go down?
No, she just expected costs to go down for HER.
Yessirree. On top of that she expected a miracle from a government program!!!
1000+ votes! People are learning life the hard way it seems.
Not to mention all of the additional REQUIRED services the majority of us don’t need and don’t want. That will absolutely lower costs in the mind of a LIV.
She should just say it — it’s another case of “Obama LIED and people DIED !!”
…just another Maobama low information Voter being taken to the cleaners by the CRIMINALS who inhabit the halls of power in Washington D.C. !”
She should be warned that she is going to audited by the IRSS.
I make very little money every year and those peter puffers just sent me a bill for an additional $169. I figure, screw them. I’m not paying until they refund our $900 million for the Maobamacare abortion and just ask Hippy what happens to feds on my property. I don’t care if they wear vests. I shoot for the face.
Those death panels are changing the grid work on a daily bases. Seems Obama’s memo was receive load and clear….. take the pill .
Very sad for this lady and her ill husband but now she says “get a second job”, with so many people looking for jobs plus Vets, and then says the word pray (oh a Christian) then she is a hard working tax paying conservative, and then on top of all that baggage, by law you can only work 29 hours a week, that’s the ultimate exercise in positive thinking.
The tears for this lady her family and many other Americans is just beginning to fall, the worse is yet to come.
At some point maybe more Americans will listen, learn and see:
Respectfully Obama and The DC Wild Bunch needs to be, well we get the picture.
Who’s the special guest on Oprah today? (SARCAS)…you know… just in case.
Elections do indeed have consequences and she is learning that the hard way.
Guess she discovered her promised free health care is actually quite expensive. Just wait until the ObamaCare death panel says no to her husband’s treatment in order to collect the 55% death tax contained within the law, something Obama will likely increase given another distraction.
What still stuns me to this day is how many of my fellow Americans fell for the pie in sky notion of ‘free health care’ and refused to listen to the realities of the bill. A lot of people are crying over the taxes on equipment but at the time liberals claimed it was no big deal. Next time a Democrat says to you they are for the little guy laugh and point out that tax because it hits the ‘little guy’ the most.
Just saw this! http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/12/03/Young-People-Rejecting-Obamacare

I saw that this morning. Republicans are so busy laughing at Democrats they aren’t going to see the truck that is going to hit them.
This may well hit them along with the truck.
Yeah when I watched that yesterday the first thing I thought of was illegal immigration.
The entire point of ObumaNOcare/DemonicRats extortion racket (UN-ACA) is to steal as much as possible of the American Middle Class’ wealth–spelled private property/freedom–rendering the Middle Class unable to mount a defense against the DC Progressive Government Hell hole. Its also why the DemonicRats always want to confiscate out guns too.
He did it for Julia, remember? Oh yeah, Julia isn’t real.
feel bad for this woman that her husband is ill. but, if she voted for obama, even once, she can give herself a pat on the back for the havoc this is causing for most people. i can’t afford obamacare, either; according to bc/bs, my premiums are a smidge lower, but the deductible is twice my current one. thank my lucky stars every single day that my (self-employment) plan was not changed over the last few years and that my plan is still grandfathered. i wouldn’t attempt to sign up if it could save me 2K a year. it’s identity theft, waiting to happen.
The government does not provide miracles! What is it going to take to wake these mindless anti-free market critics up. It is amazing how America has lost its way. I can’t say anymore–I’m going to say something I’ll regret.
So when will Congress repeal Obamacare and put us back to what we had… which is a hell of a lot better than this slow moving disaster. Oh, of course the Democrats really don’t want Obamacare… so they will let the disaster happen so they can replace it with their dream of a “single-payer” healthcare system. Heck China’s going to have a better healthcare system by the time Obamacare gets fully implemented. (What we had was better than theirs… but what we are going to is worse than theirs.)
All the problems we are now seeing have nothing to do with actual “CARE.” God only knows what kind of gems we’ll find in the 20,000 pages of regulations and what “CARE” will be, if there really is “CARE” that is affordable and doable.
Well, if you can’t afford it, you don’t have to worry about the identity thieves lurking about the site, right? Ugh, right?
