O-Care premiums to skyrocket
The Hill, by Elise Viebeck

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 3/19/2014 7:22:26 AM

Health industry officials say ObamaCare-related premiums will double in some parts of the country, countering claims recently made by the administration. The expected rate hikes will be announced in the coming months amid an intense election year, when control of the Senate is up for grabs. The sticker shock would likely bolster the GOP’s prospects in November and hamper ObamaCare insurance enrollment efforts in 2015. The industry complaints come less than a week after Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius sought to downplay concerns about rising premiums in the healthcare sector. She told lawmakers rates would increase in 2015 but

In summary...

The administration lied initially about premiums.

Some insurance companies were in on it, intentionally pricing premiums lower in the first year.

The administration is still "misleading" us.

Premiums were already a shock to many people.

Premiums are going to skyrocket in certain parts of the country.

*******

It all sounds like a really well thought out plan. The only positive in the story is that this may all hit the fan in the middle of the midterm elections.

I hope so. Premiums are up, food prices are soaring, gas prices are soaring, utilities are soaring and on and on.

Our local St. Vincent de Paul Society helps a lot of people in the community and their biggest request is for help paying utility bills. This last winter hit a lot of people very hard.

It was a fiendishly clever plan. Instead of accurately calling it the "Ridiculously Unaffordable Plan With Absurd Deductibles For Many New Coverages You Don´t Want or Need Act", they went 180 on it and fraudulently called it the Affordable Care Act. They also got the greedy insurance companies to enthusiastically support it, thinking, "Jeez, we can make out like bandits on this," but not knowing that it will in fact kill them all off when the blowback on the rate shafting forces single payer on them.

The only thing they didn´t think through was the timing. That election thingy. Bummer for them. Unless of course, they can somehow force/bribe the insurance companies to delay the increases until after the election. Which I´m guessing they´re working on as we speak.

We have been given notice that our plans will be discontinued in Dec 2014. The new plans are from $1400 - $1800 per month with $6000 deductible. Our total out of pocket for a family of 5 is $25000 - $30000. I don´t know how most people will be able to afford the premiums or the deductible.
When they cannot pay the copays and deductibles, the hospitals will be in the same boat of trying to collect and we will see just as many bankruptcies.

This massive failure was passed only because of massive deceptions by our Liar in Chief. Therefore, ObamaNoCare will require far more lies to sustain it past 2014 and 2016. In addition to outright lies, we can expect our "news" media to do two things:

A. Ignore premium increases, lack of participating doctors / hospitals, large number of still uninsured, huge deductibles and burden to taxpayers for subsidies.

B. Inundate us with stories about people who have benefited from ObamaCare. These beneficiaries will be mostly Democrat operatives, but ABC, NBC, CNN and their ilk won´t care. It´s the tears on camera that are important.

AARP and the insurance companies worked with Obama Administration to defraud Seniors and impose this power grab on the American People.
They all lied and put Obama the Black Face out front to forestall any criticism as Racist./
The cartel has him in place to dismantle the American system and to inflame the world and he is succeeding as planned.
If you plan the " chaos" it is a great investment opportunity.
Defund, repeal and replace Obamacare and anyone who supported it.

I occasionally hear from someone crowing over how cheap their obamacare insurance turned out to be - what with all the subsidies or being newly eligible for medicaid. Only one speculated: "How is the government paying for this?" How indeed.

What a complete failure BOCare is.

BO claimed there were 46M that needed health insurance. IF 5M signed up, only about 4M actually paid for insurance and of those, probably at least a million already had insurance before. Say 3M new insured. That´s about 7% of the uninsured that BO claimed.

That´s abysmal!

The rates NOW are unaffordable. ANY rise, let alone a doubling or tripling of rates will completely destroy the market. Will subsidies double or triple to "help out"? Where is THAT money going to come from?

#4 states a family of 5 will face $25,000+ out of pocket. That´s nuts!

The ripple effects of the law are limiting access to doctors, hospitals, and special care. Many people have been reduced to part time hours so employers can dodge the law. Major sections of the law have delayed so significant damaging impact is yet to come.

BOCare is like the Titanic. The arrogant designers of the ship thought it an indestructible giant. It sank and KILLED 2/3 of the people on board. Will BO´s and the progressive´s arrogance be responsible for another disaster?

When the deductibles and premiums are so high, do you really have health insurance at all? Most people will pay huge sums out of pocket before they meet their deductibles. Barring a catastrophic illness or accident, what real good is it to people who are struggling to feed their kids and put a roof over their heads. If an illness or accident occurred in the past, people would go to the hospital and they would set up monthly payments to cover the cost of care. Now they are forced every month to pay an exorbitant price and really have no health insurance to speak of until they meet their extremely high deductibles. Then and only then, will their "health insurance" kick in. How is this good insurance? It is extortion.

There are many themes in the disastrous Obama experiment, but cowardice may be near the top.

Obama hates many things and many people but his lack of a strong father figure (other than radical nutters) has made him a coward. He talks tough and runs back in the house when challenged or opposed. When he´s dealing with a Romney or a Boehner his W-L record flatters him. Putin, other the other hand, knows a glass jaw when he sees one.

obamacare is only a high premium, huge deductible catastrophic insurance. The deductibles make certain the patient (if one can find a doctor) pays out of pocket for all of their health care needs-----which amounts to NO INSURANCE at all.

Just the other day someone told me their insurance policy, which was $1,700 a month plus an $8,000 deductible for a middle-aged couple, has been cancelled due to Obamacare. They are frantically searching for another policy which will not put them out of pocket more than that, but it doesn´t look good. Not to mention, one is being treated for cancer, and their doctor/hospital appears not to be covered any more.

#27, that´s an old trick by insurers and/or employers offering insurance. Many years ago, I sought to find out for my sick mother what her policy covered. When I called the insurance company, they referred me to the employer who purchased the policy. The employer told me "there is no written policy," you have to submit charges already incurred to see if they are covered. When I persisted, telling them that our state requires a written policy be available to the insured, they changed their tune, but said I had to visit the employer´s office (a state agency!) to read it.

When they got a "lawyer letter," suddenly they coughed up the policy paperwork.

Watching the influx of unaccompanied minors crossing our southwestern border daily, a reasonable man could conclude that we are living out the fevered dreams of a dystopian novel. The United States has lost a basic aspect of sovereignty. Control over its borders is a relic of the past.Having traversed Mexico with the help of drug cartels freely operating human trafficking networks, Central American minors are voluntarily entering the United States through the Rio Grande Valley.

The Supreme Court led by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. showed again this year that it is playing a long game, writing opinions that move the law in small but steady steps in a conservative direction.At first glance, many of its decisions appear modest, and the justices themselves downplayed them as narrow and tightly targeted. But they also set the stage for broader rulings, and liberals voiced concern about their long-term impact.Many rely on well-established rights, such as freedom of speech and free exercise of religion, but extend those rights for the first time to corporations, wealthy donors and

The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves.

Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the
