ObamaCare Damage

ObamaCare, So Successful That People Can’t Afford To Use It

  Hey Obamabots, what good is “affordable” health insurance if it costs you too much to use it? In a survey taken in the fall, The Commonwealth Fund, a private, independent health care research organization, found that about 40 percent of adults nationwide who had high-deductible private insurance plans reported delaying care because of the cost. In another, the Gallup Poll, which annually asks about health care cost and use every November, reported that the percentage of Americans who had insurance and chose not to go to a health care professional for a routine visit or a need because of […]

Epic: Phil Kerpen Pwns Gruber Saying, “Thanks For Helping Us Destroy Sh*tty Law You Passed”…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Ouch. Via Truth Revolt: Phil Kerpen, an author, syndicated columnist, and president of American Commitment, shook hands with Jonathan Gruber immediately following Tuesday’s House Oversight Committee hearing and said, “Thank you for helping us destroy the sh*tty law you passed.” Kerpen announced his pwnership via Twitter:   Right after hearing I shook Gruber’s hand, looked him in the eye, and said: “Thank you for helping us destroy the shitty law you passed.” — Phil Kerpen (@kerpen) December 9, 2014 And Kerpen seems intent on keeping Gruber honest. Gruber’s testimony today that the mandate is NOT a tax […]

ObamaCare Facing Slew of New Problems

  Hat/Tip to Sandy Fitzgerald at Newsmax. They say that a fine wine only gets better with age. Well, if that’s the case, then it is painfully obvious that ObamaCare contains zero percent alcohol. Because in contrast, it only gets worse with age. The winter months are bringing a fresh set of challenges for the second season of ObamaCare just as a new batch of potential customers are deciding whether to purchase their insurance through the nation’s healthcare exchanges. The enrollment period has gone much more smoothly this time around, after last year’s HealthCare.gov debacle left potential customers confused, dismayed, and […]

If You Like Your Plan, You Can Keep Your Plan – Just Fork Over More Money

Hat/Tip to Sandy Fitzgerald at Newsmax. Despite President Obama’s repeated assurances about the average family’s premiums going down by $2500 per year, on average, we’re finding that this just isn’t the case. If you liked the ObamaCare plan you bought last year, you can probably keep it, but it will likely cost you more this time around. According to data unveiled by the Obama administration on Friday night shortly before the health insurance marketplace opened enrollment for 2015, costs for some recipients could go up as much as 20 percent unless they switch to a lower-cost plan, reports The New […]

In 2014 Nancy Pelosi Doesn’t Know Jonathan Gruber: In 2009, She Mentions Him By Name During Presser

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. See the problem with the older politicians like Nancy Pelosi is that they forget that the internet exists. Or maybe they don’t understand how it works, I mean after all, that’s what staffers and interns are for, right? Well anyway, she either doesn’t know, or doesn’t care because she has done it again. That’s right. She’s lied. * GASP!! * And don’t expect this article to feature her lies down through the years the last two days. We just don’t have that kind of bandwidth! I mean, who do you think we are? WeaselZippers? But I digress. The […]

Third Gruber Video: Obama Is “Not Stupid,” Intentionally Misled American People About Nature Of ObamaCare…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers and Patrick Howley at The Daily Caller. When you’re on the Titanic and it’s going down, you don’t stop and call the icebergs stupid. But Jonathan Gruber may as well be doing just that. He is the principle architect of ObamaCare. The Titanic is the law itself, and the icebergs are the American voters. so what does he do? Well evidently he pops up in video after video in which he basically has been going around telling ANYONE who’ll listen to him how “stupid” the American voters are, and how great Barack Obama is and how it […]

Survey: Majority Of Last Year’s Obamacare Customers Won’t Return

Hat/Tip to Sarah Hurtubise at The Daily Caller. “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you like your plan, you can keep your plan. Period.” – Barack Obama, Ad Nauseum when he was pushing his “Signature Legislation” down the throats of the American public. Well we’ve since found out that, much like most everything else that comes out of his mouth, this was just another in a long string of lies. And it looks like even the Obama drones are waking up to that hard bit of reality, as well. A majority of last year’s Obamacare […]

Yay ObamaCare, NJ Businesses Again See Double-Digit Health Insurance Increases

  Nineteen times Barack Obama promised to lower our health insurance premiums by as much as $2500 per year. We’re still waiting. Small businesses continue to see double-digit increases in the cost of employee health care, according to a survey released by a major business group Thursday, which found 87 percent of those polled provide coverage. The survey by New Jersey Business and Industry Association found that health-care costs rose by 24 percent in the last year for businesses that have between one and 24 employees, and by 16 percent for those with between 25 and 49 workers. Employers on […]

ObamaCare ‘Bronze’ Plan Premiums Expected to Jump 14% in 2015

Hat/Tip to Kellan Howell at The Washington Times. If you like your plan, you can keep your plan – IF YOU CAN AFFORD TO. The latest in the national shame that is ObamaCare is that the “most affordable” Bronze plans are going up in price next year. In an analysis of expected rates for the biggest 15 cities in the nation, including Washington, D.C., Investor’s Business Daily reported Friday that the cost for the plan could increase by an average of 13.9 percent for 40-year-old non-smokers earning 225 percent of the poverty level. Some examples of this: Plan owners in […]

Captain Obvious Report: ObamaCare Makes Being Healthy Unaffordable

Hat/Tip to Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar and Jennifer Agiesta of the Associated Press. Most Americans knew when Barack Obama began preaching his Hope and Change, that something was up. His professed desire to “fundamentally transform the United States of America” seems to be one campaign promise he is keeping. And his signature legislation, the hysterically named “Affordable Care Act” is bleeding the bank accounts of Americans dry. We’ve already covered his broken promises on keeping your doctor and your plan, and his oft-repeated promise to save the average family $2,500 on their premiums each year. Now a new poll from The Associated […]

Sorry, You Can’t Find Out The Cost Of ObamaCare Until After the 2014 Mid-Term Elections

The Obamacare website is hiding 2015 premium increases until November 15th. Because if you know what it’ll cost, you won’t vote to re-elect Democrats. Those planning to purchase health insurance on the Obamacare exchange will soon find out how much rates have increased – after the Nov. 4 election. Enrollment on the Healthcare.gov website begins Nov. 15, or 11 days after the midterm vote, and critics who worry about rising premium hikes in 2015 say that’s no coincidence. Last year’s inaugural enrollment period on the health-care exchange began Oct. 1. “This is more than just a glitch,” said Tim Phillips, […]

ObamaCare To Force Thousands Out of Health Care Plans With New Cancellations

  If I had the time to do so, I could point you to countless posts, both on this blog and on others, warning Americans of the “unintended” consequences of the monstrosity known as ObamaCare. The biggest consequence came in direct contradiction of the lie repeated, ad nauseam, by President Obama that if you liked your health care plan or your doctor, you could keep your health care plan and doctor. That has already been proven to be false, but as I write this post, there are plans to make it even more so. Thirteen states and the District of […]

Here’s Why ObamaCare Cost 30,000 Wal-Mart Part-Timers Their Health Insurance Coverage

Hat/Tip to Jason Pye at Freedom Works. Looks like the rising costs of ObamaCare are once again, taking their toll on the average American who works for a weekly paycheck, trying to support their family. Wal-Mart has joined the ranks of employers that have been forced to drop health insurance for some 30,000 part-time workers, according to a report from the Associated Press. The big box retailer — which has struggled with sales and recently lowered its profit forecast for the year — made the move to adjust to rising healthcare costs under ObamaCare: The announcement comes after Wal-Mart said […]

Another Obamacare Success Story: Businesses Cutting Jobs Ahead of the Employer Mandate

. On the plus side, you’ll have (allegedly) cheap health insurance, and more time to play golf. Because, thanks to Obamacare, your job just went poof! Businesses are cutting jobs due to ObamaCare, according to surveys by several regional Federal Reserve Banks. Health economist John Goodman noted that “three Federal Reserve Banks in Philadelphia, New York and Atlanta have surveyed the folks in their area and roughly one fifth of the employers are saying they cut back on employment.” “Roughly one fifth are saying they’re moving from full time to part time,” Goodman added. “More than one in ten are […]

“If you like your plan, you can keep it” …250,000 Virginians to Lose Their Plans

ObamaCare damage is still happening.  This fall, 250,000 Virginians are going to learn that voting for Obama means losing their plan, and paying more for less coverage.    Of course, liberals will say that they were crappy plans.  After all, their old plans didn’t force men to have maternity coverage!   And, those same liberals will say that the people that are losing their plans are too stupid to realize that they really wanted to pay a lot more-for less coverage!

ObamaCare May Not Raise Enough Money To Pay For Itself

Again this morning, I want to pivot away from Israel, Hamas, and the rest of the world that is in turmoil because of Islamic terrorists. Instead, I want to focus on another of President Obama’s prime achievements. According to him, that is. I would be speaking about ObamaCare. It is the monstrous legislation that only exists because the Democrats rammed it down our throats and Chief Justice John Roberts changed Webster’s Dictionary so he could vote to uphold the tax/penalty. I believe there is ample proof that the bill is a disaster. Nothing in it has worked as designed. From […]

SEIU Supports ObamaCare: SEIU Rank and File Loses Jobs-Due to ObamaCare

Ready for a extra thick piece of irony cake?  As we all know, union bosses were big supporters of ObamaCare, funneling millions into democrat coffers.  However, as usual, the boss’s support of democrat causes the people they are supposed to “represent” to lose their jobs.  The SEIU is no exception. And, SEIU represented staff at East Niagara Hospital are being so well “represented” by the SEIU, they they don’t have to go to work-ever again! From Labor Union Report: SEIU-Backed ObamaCare Helps Cause SEIU-Represented Hospital To Cut 10% Of Full-Time Staff With ex-SEIU boss Andy Stern having taken credit for the passage […]

Top insurers say Obamacare exchange enrollment is shrinking fast

After people signed up, would they pay? That was the Big Question lurking in the shadows as the White House trumpted 8 million enrollees in Obamacare. “Trust us,” said the Obamabots, “they’ll pay.” Except, as you might have guessed by now, the checks got lost in the mail. ObamaCare exchange statistics should clear up any doubt as to why the Obama Administration has been tight-lipped about enrollment since celebrating 8 million sign-ups in mid-April. Reality, evidence suggests, could require quite a come-down from those lofty claims. The nation’s third-largest health insurer had 720,000 people sign up for exchange coverage as […]
