It was much better before Obamacare. You know, the time where in my personal experience, my premiums went up 200% in 3 years. Good times.

/Anecdote fight


My premiums went up 500% because of Obamacare and my employer fired me because Obama taxed the rich.  Also, my Papa Johns pizza is way too expensive and I can no longer afford to eat.  Luckily, I don't have to worry about any of this because a death panel has already sentenced me to execution.

Biatching about the failure of Obamacare when it's still in early implementation is like going to a birthday dinner and insisting that you want cake while everyone else is working on their salad.

At this point, more like seeing the baker come in the door with the cake and trying to punch him in the face for daring to bake a chocolate cake when everybody knows you prefer coconut.  Then when he reminds you that you're not the birthday boy and so don't get to to decide the cake flavor, you kick him in the crotch and demand a strawberry cake.  The baker successfully gets the cake to the table, which you then attempt to flip while screaming that you have the freedom of speech to demand vanilla cake, goddamnit!  Look, what can't you understand about the fact that last year's pineapple upsidedown cake was perfectly fine and there's no reason to change it?  The people want dobash, you tyrant!  THE CAKE IS A LIE!

I like Paul Ryan. He is the real deal GOP. God bless the second amendment. Paul Ryan is interested in health care. I have seen internet pictures of Mr. Ryan lifting weights. Mr. Ryan smiles.

I have seen internet pictures of Mr. Ryan being sodomized. Mr. Ryan smiles a lot.

Apparently, Republican men smile when they receive anal sex. God bless.

Soup4Bonnie: Ryan said his budget, like his plan last year, would propose giving new Medicare beneficiaries, now younger than age 55, the option of purchasing private insurance with a government subsidy instead of the traditional Medicare plan.

Vouchers. Again.


More vouchers and another attempt at repealing PPACA.
Maybe we'll get lucky and the republicans will hold their breath long enough that their voters start to turn blue.

Fail in Human Form: According to that website here was the reason for the increase (although it says some people only got about an 11% increase based off of yadda yadda)

Type of Cost:Per Member Increase
Per Month IncreasePortion of Increase
Medical Services* - Cost of providing healthcare
services to policyholders$30.9688.03%
Administrative Expenses - Marketing, claims
processing, and other costs to the
company$3.509.95%Underwriting Gain/Loss - Amount the company keeps
after paying claims and administrative expenses$0.712.02%



You're insurance company is raising premiums because their advertisement costs have gone up.
If they're having trouble marketing not being dead then Obamacare may not be their biggest problem.

Anyway, let's talk about how Fartfartacare, while nowhere near what is needed and must inevitably happen (single-payer or socialized healthcare), is incontrovertibly an improvement - terrible anecdotes aside - over the status quo ante and the brainchild of the Heritage Foundation and the Republicans. If they had half a farking brain between them they'd be taking credit for it. God knows their single-digit IQ voting base will just shift gears to supporting it like they always do. Instead, they do this, to which I can only say, "Please proceed, Congressman."

I think the difference this time is the Obamacare-Benghazi Connection which all the all of the GOP politicians' constituents are asking them about whenever they go and whenever they see one but cannot name for a never ending string of reasons.

Or something like that.

One thing is for certain, the Republiturds are very concerned.

The Democrats need to pass an unrealistic non-passable balanced budget also that is "balanced" through only tax increases on the wealthy and token measures that undo Ronalod Reagan's legacy like defunding the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport; or better yet renaming it the Barack Hussein Obama Washington Nationalized Healthcare Airport.

Wait, so your company decided to cut hours in order to save money and that's Obamacare's fault?  What are you, 5?  "If you hadn't put the cookie jar where I could reach it, I wouldn't have snuck some cookies before dinner.  It's YOUR fault I ate those cookies!"

I don't know what state you live in, but here in CA, once our state starts its insurance exchange, my family of 4 can get coverage for $124/month at my current income level. This will also be the first time my wife will have had insurance in more than 10 years do to a pre-existing condition.

So yeah, Obamacare is pretty f'ing great from my POV. Would I prefer true single payer? You bet. But this is certainly an improvement.

"Our budget does promote repealing ObamaCare," said Ryan, who was not clear whether his 2014 budget is based on a full repeal...... "I've very confident this is the way to go,"

"Here's my plan.  We want to repeal Obamacare.  I know we tried like 35 times when we had more Republicans in the HoR, and more Republicans in the Senate, and it failed every time.  This time will be different and is in no way just a waste of time in which I'm trying to distract you from the fact that I got nuthin'.  I'm not sure if this thing I'm proposing gets rid of all of it, but I know it's the right thing to do, even though I'm not sure exactly what it does."
