Insurance Costs Under Obamacare - Page 15
No, they are still working on it.
I wonder if whatever administration dummy said "the best and the brightest" knows what that phrase connotates. Men who got the country into a trillion dollar war that we lost miserably and cost us 58,000 American lives. I hope Obamacare is not as successful in ruining the country.
They're playing it as real.
I watched some highlights of the healthcare.gov hearings and it's clear the "top men" they have running the programs are hopelessly technologically ignorant. There's a good article on it at Slate of all places -
I am opposed to Obamacare, but calling into their call centers and start asking these (probably minimum wage) call center people stupid questions on the radio to make some political point or just for entertainment seems just inane.
I just got news that my wife's boss is no longer offering insurance as of 2014 (small business with 15 employees). He used to cover my wife and two other members of his staff while the others had the option of buying in at a cheaper rate than was available elsewhere. She had GHI till now - $40 copays but I don't recall any large deductible. Even so that was a crappy plan. Went for blood test - $40 copay, ultrasound - $80 copay. I just went to browse some insurance sites (Emblem/Oxford/Blue Cross) and the most expensive plans had copays that were equal to or more than her current crappy plan besides the $2500 deductible. Unbelievable! And that lying pace of shit said I could keep my own plan. Not only can't I but it will cost even more. Plus, being that my wife is 4 months pregnant doesn't help - we need a plan where she can stay with her current OBGYN. I'm sure the fucken morons in the white house didn't even think how this ACA (aka redistribution of wealth) would affect millions of people with conditions and the like whose insurance plans cease to exist and are forced to move on to new plans with other docs. What a bunch of idiots!
That was always my take on the whole "Bush stole the election" trope
