Dissecting the Truth of Obamacare: AGAIN.
The New York Times has reported that: “The Obama administration said last week that over the first 12 days of open enrollment, plan selections in the states that use the federal marketplace were up by about 5 percent compared with the same period last year. Some of the states that run their own marketplaces have reported brisker business: In Colorado, sign-ups are running 30 percent higher than they were at this point in the last open enrollment period, according to Kevin Patterson, the chief executive of the state’s marketplace.”
What that really means…
In Colorado, we lost a number of insurers and within Obamacare plans were eliminated causing a huge influx of panicking citizens trying and find an alternative healthcare plan given theirs was cancelled. United and Human both fled the individual market. And for example, my son was given exactly three choices for a self insured plan. Not three insurers – but three plan choices. Period. They all were on the Obamacare exchange, because many of the insurers will no longer insure individuals – and thus there is no competition, they all offered the same option, the same cost. HELLO???
The fact that the New York Times failed miserably to investigate what they were reporting is only more fodder for the ‘Fake News Conspiracy’ perpetrated by our established media, including; Washington Post, New York times, The Economist, The New Yorker and most other Liberal news sights who prefer to post massive articles deriding Trump than they do reporting on ‘NEWS’.
The people that support Obamacare include the government officials who have private plans outside of the system, and those whose income allows them massive subsidies to the point that they pay – next to nothing. And of course, the rest of us are required to foot the bill.
As in – moi.
The other little detail that hasn’t been discussed is the great additive that allows children to be on their parent’s plan until they turn 26. Sound good? Well, it ain’t free! The cost to me for each son is about $350 each per month and the additional out-of-pocket skyrockets from $4000 to $10,600. This means if I have a surgical procedure, my individual out-of-pocket is the maximum family amount. Not my individual amount.
So. New York Times. Washington Post. I suggest next time when you make rampant accusations about media propaganda and tag other countries, you might consider the false- FAKE news you participate in on a daily basis without even attempting to research – THE TRUTH.
Perhaps that is because their own healthcare is paid for completely. Or perhaps it is because they have no dignity or ethic. In this, I take great exception as I am required to pay astronomical premiums and astronomical out of pocket costs in order to provide the government their private insurance, and in order to provide free healthcare for everyone else.
What ever happened to ‘equality’?
Cause it sure doesn’t feel equal to me. New York Times… New York Times… Anyone… Anyone… Ferris? Are you there?
