Obama Care (again)

This week The Stu Pitt Award goes to ...

Obama Care

Obama Care is coming. Duck.

From the Wall Street Journal, September 25, 2013 ...

"U.S. officials for the first time disclosed insurance prices that will be offered through new federally run health-care exchanges starting Oct. 1, showing that young, healthy buyers likely will pay more than they do currently while older, sicker consumers should get a break.

The plans, offered under the health-care overhaul to people who don't get insurance through an employer or government program, in many cases provide broader coverage than current policies.

Costs will vary widely from state to state and for different types of consumers. Government subsidies will cut costs for some lower-income consumers.

... But for some buyers, prices will rise from today's less-comprehensive policies. In Nashville, Tenn., a 27-year-old male nonsmoker could pay as little as $41 a month now for a bare-bones policy, but would pay $114 a month for the lowest-cost bronze option in the new federal health exchanges. OMG, that's a monthly premium increase of 178%!

Likewise, the least-expensive bronze policy would rise to $195 a month in Philadelphia for that same 27-year-old, from $73 today. OMG, that's a monthly premium increase of 167%!

In Cheyenne, Wyo., the lowest-cost option would be $271 a month, up from $82 today." OMG, that's a monthly premium increase of over 230%!

And, to add insult to injury
"One potential drawback of the plans on the exchanges: They often feature narrower networks of doctors and hospitals, meaning people might not be able to see the doctor of their choice."

Obama Care. A MANDATORY socialistic government program where people pay more and get less. And maybe DON'T get to go to the doctor they have now.

Obama Care. Another brilliant idea ... that doesn't work.

Congratulations Obama Care, for doubling many people's health care premiums, you deservedly earned this week's Stu Pitt Award!
