Obamacare Slavery

That is what it is-slavery. We have no freedom to choose our healthcare any longer. Because of Obama care we are forced to take a silver, gold or bronze plan. The old plans that suited us just perfectly are gone; not available, adiós.

We are on a fixed income, early social security and one pension. My husband’s current insurance premium is $335.50 per month, barely affordable. The new Obama care plan which closely mirrors his old plan has a premium of $662.02, a 97 percent increase.

The catastrophic plan they offer has a $ 6500 deductible and its premium is $472 or a 40 percent increase. No, we are not eligible for the subsidy.

The argument in Congress is a valid one. Our president wants to hamstring the middle class and place everyone on equal status with the working class.  We were once working class but moved up with our careers to a secure and comfortable upper middle class status. The economy supported by this administration to provide subsidies and welfare programs has destroyed our well-being. Now we are where Obama wants us: dependant, subsidized, and in need of a powerful government to take care of us.

In 1776 the new American people established a moderate government because they no longer wanted to be ruled by a King and his personal agenda. Revolt! Do not succumb to this servitude!

We told our insurance provider that we could not afford either plan. We said good-bye and will seek quotes from other insurers.

Oh by the way be ready to stay on hold. We could not apply online for his new policy. Our Insurer’s website on October 1, 2013 continued to show the old plans like the advantage plan 2 for $310.00 a month which was perfect for us.

Affordable Care Act

The Congressional Budget Office estimates that 7 million Americans will lose their coverage because of Obamacare. North Carolina Congressman Pittenger reports that Blue Cross Blue Shield has announced a 284 % increase for some North Carolina insurance premiums due to Obamacare. Small business owners are concerned that costly Obamacare regulations will drive them out of business. So can someone explain the word affordable in Affordable Care Act?  

I am concerned for two reasons: first most of us can not afford a 284 percent increase on middle income or retirement income.  Secondly I do not want federal help.  I understand that if you make a certain amount of money you will be able to receive entitlements from the government to assist in paying these steep premiums. In my opinion, it is another way for the government to control us. The government takes more and more control of our lives each day. Our government tells us what we can eat, how we should protect ourselves, what kind of healthcare we are allowed to have, and even legislates our morality.

If healthcare for the uninsured is something we need, let’s start over with a plan that does not hurt more people than it helps. Please research the information on Obamacare and send your congressman an email or letter in support of the repeal of the Affordable Care Act.

I am concerned for two reasons: first most of us can not afford a 284 percent increase on middle income or retirement income.  Secondly I do not want federal help.  I understand that if you make a certain amount of money you will be able to receive funding from the government to assist  you in paying these steep premiums. In my opinion, it is another way for the government to control us. The government takes more and more control of our lives each day.

As an American, I do not want the federal supplement. I started working when I was thirteen. From the beginning I have been independent, working my way through college, starting a career at the bottom of the ladder and living in a small one bedroom apartment using the coffee table for dining.  Many people start out this way. I believe most Americans want an independent society not socialism.

In congress, a legislative bill is being prepared to repeal Obamacare. With all the negative and costly changes that Obamacare has brought us I think this is a good idea. 

If healthcare for the uninsured is something we need, let’s start over with a plan that does not hurt more people than it helps. Research the information on Obamacare and send your congressman an email or letter and support the repeal of the Affordable Care Act.
