Progtards are finally managing to get through to the price list on 404Care’s website, and it doesn’t look like they much care for the price of “free healthcare.”
Cindy Vinson and Tom Waschura are big believers in the Affordable Care Act.
Don’t stop belieeeeeeevin’…
Those retards really need to keep their faith out of the public square.
They vote independent and are proud to say they helped elect and re-elect President Barack Obama.
“Independent” lockstep socialists. That sounds like “White Hispanics.”
Yet, like many other Bay Area residents who pay for their own medical insurance, they were floored last week when they opened their bills:
You suckers, you BELIEVED in him!
Their policies were being replaced with pricier plans that conform to all the requirements of the new health care law.
Vinson, of San Jose, will pay $1,800 more a year for an individual policy, while Waschura, of Portola Valley, will cough up almost $10,000 more for insurance for his family of four.
Oh Sweet Jove, our Schadenboner could cut through diamonds right now!
So how does that vote feel now, Progtards, jammed as it is so far up your arses that it tickles your tonsils? Huh? How does it feeeeeeel?
“Welcome to the club,” said Robert Laszewksi, a prominent health care consultant and president of Health Policy and Strategy Associates in Virginia.
What? Are you, by any chance, yet another functionally illiterate Progtard Belieeeeber stuck with sticker shock too?
For years, the nation has been embroiled in the political rhetoric of “Obamacare,” but this past week the reality of the new law sank in as millions of Americans had their first good look at how the 3? 1/2-year-old legislation will affect their pocketbooks.
Actually, for 99% of them, their “first good look” only told them that due to a 404 error, the webpage they were trying to view could not be shown. Because the Internet is racist or something.
How the everloving Hades did they manage to spend 3 1/2 years failing to set up a website? Did they go with AOL? Did president Stompy Foot find one of their old CDs that he’d been using as a beer coaster for all these years? The world may never know. The only thing that you can rest assured of is that this monumental clusterfuck cost us, the taxpayers, hundreds of millions, if not billions, of dollars.
We can’t wait until government takes care of our treatments and surgeries as well.
This much quickly became clear: As state- and federal-run health insurance exchanges debuted across the country offering a range of prices for different tiers of insurance coverage, the new online marketplaces — which represent the centerpiece of Obamacare — could greatly benefit more than 40 million Americans who now lack coverage.
Sure it could. If they could afford it. Which they can’t. Which is why they didn’t have healthcare insurance to begin with. Or, for some, mostly young, healthy people, they didn’t have it because they didn’t need it, being of good health. But now they have to get it, all of them. It’s The Law. Just listen to Harry Screed and the ObamaMedia. And if you insist on not buying healthcare that you don’t need with money that you don’t have, then you’ll be fined money that you also don’t have.
Welcome to ObamaTopia of Next Tuesday!™
But an additional 16 million — who buy individual health insurance policies on the open market — are finding out that their plans may not comply with the new law, which requires 10 essential benefits such as maternity care, mental health care and prescription drug coverage.
Even if you are, say, a sane, male, unmedicated individual. You still “need” to purchase insurance to cover shrink visits you won’t be having, pills you won’t be buying and childbirths you won’t be going through unless biology is shut down by the Spite House as well.
In California, 1.9 million people buy plans on the open market, according to officials with Covered California, the state’s new health insurance exchange. And many of them are steaming mad.
And most of them probably voted straight D since they were old enough to vote. For them, we have the following:
If you listen closely, you can hear the saddest song ever played.
“There’s going to be a number of people surprised” by their bills, said Jonathan Wu, a co-founder of ValuePenguin, a consumer finance website.
The same kind of surprise experienced by people who, having spent every dime they owned and could borrow on a nice gentleman in Nigeria, can’t fathom why they haven’t yet seen a dime of the $27,000,000 (TWENTY SEVEN MILLION DOLLARS) that they were promised. And for the very same reason: An IQ around the average June temperature. In Greenland. In other words: Progtardianism.
“The upper-middle class are the people who are essentially being asked to foot the bill, and that’s true across the country.”
Asked? ASKED???? And no, it’s not the “upper middle class”, unless the money fairy suddenly dumped a shitload of funds in our back yard that we haven’t found yet. It’s everybody who has the nerve and good fortune to still have a halfway decently paying job in Obama’s Utopia.
Covered California spokesman Dana Howard maintained that in public presentations the exchange has always made clear that there will be winners and losers under Obamacare.
“Some people will see an increase who are already on the individual market purchasing insurance,” he said, “but most people will not.”
Bovine excrement of the most fetid kind. Everybody, everybody, were told by the douchebag-in-chief and his fawning acolytes in the media that they’d get to keep the plans they had if they liked them AND at a lower price. EVERYBODY. That’s how it was sold. And, as is the case with every single other promise oozing its way out of a Progtard’s festering face scar, it was a blatant, massive lie.
Covered California officials note that at least 570,000 of the 1.9 million people who buy their own insurance should be eligible for subsidies that will reduce their premiums.
For the exact same plans? Oh, and we’re sure that, if that’s even true (which it’s not since it was uttered by a Progtard) it will come as a great comfort to the 2/3 that are being gang raped by president cockfluffer and his merry gang of jackboots that the other 1/3 are getting a good deal out of it.
Even those who don’t qualify for the tax subsidies could see their rates drop because Obamacare doesn’t allow insurers to charge people more if they have pre-existing conditions such as diabetes and cancer, he said.
Good for them. So you’re telling those of us who are getting robbed to within an inch of our lives that it’s really all our own fault? That if we’d only pick up cancer or diabetes, this would actually be a good deal for us? Why, that’s perfectly reasonable! We’ll go stick a plutonium rod up our arsehole right away and start counting the days until we get a tumor and save a few bucks on health insurance!
But people with no pre-existing conditions like Vinson, a 60-year-old retired teacher, and Waschura, a 52-year-old self-employed engineer, are making up the difference.
Ah, back to the “big belieber” in the Unaffordable Nocare Act.
“I was laughing at Boehner — until the mail came today,”
Reality came disguised in an envelope today. And slugged you right in your self-righteous, ignorant face. Dammit, our Schadenboner is getting all tumescent again. Like a titanium alloy murder-spike.
Waschura said, referring to House Speaker John Boehner, who is leading the Republican charge to defund Obamacare.
“I really don’t like the Republican tactics, but at least now I can understand why they are so pissed about this. When you take $10,000 out of my family’s pocket each year, that’s otherwise disposable income or retirement savings that will not be going into our local economy.”
Isn’t it cute when Progtards start experiencing the first faint glimmers of awareness of reality?”
Of course, I want people to have health care,” Vinson said. “I just didn’t realize I would be the one who was going to pay for it personally.”
No, you fully expected it to be somebody ELSE who had to pay for it. Just like a true Progtard. You’re all about vapid proclamations about how you are the only ones who’d like a cure for cancer, food for the poor, free healthcare for everybody, cars that run 7,000 miles to the gallon without despoiling nature the slightest, world peace and following winds when you’re riding your bicycle, both ways, unlike all of those hating, haty, hatemongering haters of the Republican Party.
As long as YOU don’t have to pay a dime for it. Because that is RIGHT OUT!
We swoon at your ideological purity and willingness to make sacrifices, as long as somebody else is actually, you know, making them. How can mere mortals like the rest of us possibly hope to survive the brilliance of your purity of heart? Just slap another sticker on your Toyota Pious and your place in Heaven is assured.
So you’re telling us that you, allegedly an engineer, are completely flabbergasted at learning that handing out money to person A means that said money has to be taken from person B? That you can’t just throw X on either side of the equation to get the desired result without subtracting it from the other side?
You’re an ENGINEER? Holy Jumping Jehosaphat on a Nuclear Pogo Stick! Just how, exactly, does one get an engineering degree in this country? From a Cracker Jack box?
Please just let us know which projects you’ve been involved in, because we don’t want to be caught within 8 counties of them.
Enjoy your “free” healthcare, comrade.
You’ll never know just how expensive healthcare is until it’s “free.” And now you’re finding out.
Oh, and… WE TOLD YOU SO, YOU PULING PRICKSWALLOWER.
