Dems Have Meltdown as ObamaCare Premiums Spike by 53%

5

Democrats are in total control of the federal government and about 13 million Obamacare recipients are about to receive notice of a 53 percent premium price increase.

The only thing that will stop reality from hitting these 13 million is if Congress acts to extend the subsidies, which will cost the American taxpayer $70 billion over three years.

Hey, remember when Obama and his media fact-checkers told us Obamacare would DECREASE the deficit?

Good times, good times…

The premium increases would be substantial if Congress does not act, with an average rise of around 53 percent, affecting roughly 13 million people, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.

Middle class people making more than 400 percent of the federal poverty line would be especially hard hit, given that they would go back to not being eligible for any financial assistance and have to pay the full cost of their premiums.

“Right before the election, people would get notices of big premium increases, and that will certainly not reflect well on Democrats,” said Larry Levitt, a health policy expert at the Kaiser Family Foundation.

You see, this is what happens when you do business with the government. You are constantly a victim of the whims of an unaccountable bureaucracy and mercenary politicians.

These Obamacare recipients are trapped. They have no place to go. No competition to turn to. And no upstart will come along to try and make everything work better and cheaper. You can’t compete with a rigged system as powerful as the federal government.

Look at the movie Joker. What turned the Joker into Joker was losing his government-subsidized mental health care. His whole life went to shit because the government made him dependent and then pulled the rug out from under him.

Look at all the veterans who died because they could only use the Veteran’s Administration.

It is utterly idiotic to give the government total say over something as vital as healthcare. There’s no competition, which means you are totally reliant on a single entity, which makes you extremely vulnerable and removes all the control and power a free market offers — a free market where you can always do business with the other guy down the road.

So what’s holding up this $70 billion subsidy from being passed? The same old BS. Right now, it’s part of a much bigger package. In other words, it’s attached to an expensive piece of emotional blackmail that has nothing to do with lowering premiums.

The hope is that a clean bill can be proposed and passed, but they are running out of time. August is the deadline, and even then, “waiting to the last minute to extend the subsidies would pose operational difficulties,” for the “Affordable Care Act marketplaces need time to set up their systems before the enrollment period[.]”

Hahahahaha: they’re still calling it the Affordable Care Act.

    If your plan is to depend on the government. You need a new plan. Government is unreliable unaccountable and undepependable. I will never understand why people would choose to give away their rights to decide for themselves for the promise of undeliverable political campaign lies. Never does government deliver on campaign promises made by shady corrupt politicians. If government ever delivers on these promises it’s always a watered down version that invariably costs the taxpayers billions due to waste red tape and corruption. While everyone was so excited about recieving pandemic handouts very few were concerned about inflationary spending and yet here we are, again. When will you people learn that nothing is free? There’s a price to pay for everything. The Biden administration has done absolutely nothing for the people it claimed to support. We have massive inflationary coats on everything. We have shortages after shortages. We have war mongering leadership. We have as much if not more division. We have escalating crime and violence. We have indoctrination of our children. We have gained absolutely nothing for these costs we have had imposed upon us and it’s one hundred percent intentional. If you still support the socialist leftists and the democratic party you are either delusional or just plain stupid. The democratic party is not the party of my grandparents or my parents. They have lost their collective minds. Understand that from this point forward if you vote for these idiots you are personally responsible for the pain of your fellow citizens. Let that sink in because this only gets worse if they hold on to power. Ask yourself what if anything you have gained from the democratic house senate and presidency. Unless you live under a rock the answer is clearly nothing.

    How can they have a meltdown — they all voted for it without knowing what was in it — total FOOLS !!!! “We have to pass it to know what’s in it” — apparently they didn’t read it.
