Ok, a question.  Is America starting to stir out of their iPad slumber to actually stop our death march to Socialism or are we too far down the “gimme free shit road” to come back?

From a Zero Hedge reader:

My company, based in California, employs 600. We used to insure about 250 of our employees. The rest opted out. The company paid 50% of their premiums for about $750,000/yr.  Under obamacare, none can opt out without penalty, and the rates are double or triple, depending upon the plan. Our 750k for 250 employees is going to $2 million per year for 600 employees.  By mandate, we have to pay 91.5% of the premium or more up from the 50% we used to pay.  Our employees share of the premium goes from $7/week for the cheapest plan to $30/week. 95% of my employees were on that plan. Remember, we used to pay 50% now we pay 91.5% and the premiums still go up that much!!

The cheapest plan now has a deductible of $6350! Before it was $150. Employees making $9 to $10/hr, have to pay $30/wk and have a $6350 deductible!!! What!!!!  They can’t afford that to be sure. Obamacare will kill their propensity to seek medical care. More money for less care? How does that help them?

Here is the craziest part. Employees who qualify for mediCAL (the California version of Medicare), which is most of my employees, will automatically be enrolled in the Federal SNAP program. They cannot opt out. They cannot decline. They will be automatically enrolled in the Federal food stamp program based upon their level of Obamacare qualification. Remember, these people work full time, living in a small town in California. They are not seeking assistance. It all seems like a joke. How can this be the new system?

Pelosi, pass the bill to find out what’s in it? Surprise! You’ve annihilated the working class.

You’re right, it is per plan. I will not comply, and may the good lord have mercy on your soul if you try (p.s., you will get to ask him directly, up close and personal to his face after trying to make me comply).

Question. What are the odds Pelosi faces a primary opponent?
:em03:
If this happens, what are the odds she loses to that opponent?

Is there a way we can put a phony Libtard into the Dem primary against her, one who pushes all the Libtard buttons, and once in office, switches party and becomes a Tea Party Conservative?

I am a health insurance broker and I can tell you that the American people are starting to wake up. When we started warning people about what was coming, many of these folks out of an old fashioned loyalty to a President didn’t want to believe us because that would mean the President purposefully lied. Many folks didn’t want to believe that and instead it was easier to just insult Obama’s opponents. Many folks had said that people will believe us when THEIR wallets are effected and sure enough…lose your health plan and all of a sudden Obama becomes the… Read more »

Massively off topic, but I don’t see a fresh open thread type place and thought yall might enjoy this. Apologies for the link to the HuffPo. This just came across my twitter timeline.

A new and independent analysis of ObamaCare warns of a ticking time bomb, predicting a second wave of 50 million to 100 million insurance policy cancellations next fall — right before the mid-term elections. The next round of cancellations and premium hikes is expected to hit employees, particularly of small businesses. While the administration has tried to downplay the cancellation notices hitting policyholders on the individual market by noting they represent a relatively small fraction of the population, the swath of people who will be affected by the shakeup in employer-sponsored coverage will be much broader. An analysis by the… Read more »

Folks, I have no faith in the electorate. Frankly, they’re all angry now, but this will only last until the next bright, shiny object gets their attention. Nothing will change. They will continue humping Marx’s dried up carcass as they sing praises of their jugeared fuckbatted leader. I’m so done with these people!

What a moving, wonderful story! Maybe, though, this link would be better (as are the comments below, with Lots of Navy folks and patriots chiming in with their own stories):

Re OBAMAcare the clusterfuck: Misha, you are underestimating us Americans. It’s not JUST the wallet — it’s the realization that we’re being herded like sheep to be shorn, then shot in the head: it’s the loss of our autonomy, our freedom, that bites the deepest. I have Never, in My Life, felt the visceral hatred, the utter alienation, from “my” government, which I no longer recognize as anything but a gang of Leftwing thugs, that I felt when I was FORCED to log onto Obamacare’s website. AGAINST OUR WILL. Title of a book about rape. Well, this will cheer all… Read more »

Emperor Misha I says: This one is different, sestrichka, and whereas I’m not popping the champagne yet, I haven’t even bought it, it could very well have some very serious consequences for the socialist pig in chief and his disgusting party. I can only hope, bratik moy, but like you, I’m just not holding my breath. For one, even if this ends up with some serious consequences for <0 and his party, the majority of the leeches in Congress will still be reelected – maybe not in the same incumbency numbers as before, but they'll still retain their seats.

Don’t forget socialism’s golden rule: The solution to every problem brought about by socialism is more socialism.
