Americans were warned early on in 2008 about Obamacare. Most turned a deaf ear. Americans were warned again in 2012. Most turned a deaf ear yet again.
Unfortunately for the entire country there is a heavy price to be paid for these two colossal mistakes in electing those who had promised they would give us this fiasco.
The excuse, "But...but we were lied to," doesn't cut it. There were plenty of us telling you the truth, but you chose instead to listen to liars who called us liars because we dared expose them and their plans.
Now, if the website for signing up for Obamacare is in shambles, you can be sure that what is behind the scenes in the program is much worse. A website that won't work is only an outward symptom of an inner system failure.
And we, the dumb schmucks got screwed.
So, now we know that Obamacare is bad. Very bad. But how bad? The Market Ticker provides the details.
The details for the Obamacare state exchange programs is now available for public viewing. According to the government's own statistics, the average premium for a 27-year-old, single coverage, is $266 per month. These young adults will need to cough up $3,200 per year for a product that many of them do not think they need, given they are the healthiest age group in America.
Many of these healthy 27-year-olds are smart enough to know that they are being snookered. And herein is a bright ray of hope for the end of Obamacare. Without healthy young people signing up, the entire system collapses. Good.
A 50-year-old, single coverage, will have to pay an average of $453 per month. These premiums will rise every year until the person goes on Medicare. But in the year or two prior to qualifying for Medicare, the premium for the Obamacare exchange program will average at least $15,000 per year.
What 59 year old, in the middle class and under, can afford that?
And if you are a single parent with children, your cost will be $610 per month, or $7,300 per year. What single parent with children has an extra $7,300 laying around to spend on healthcare that they are now required to have by law?
And then there are the hundreds of thousands who have been told by their insurers that they are being dropped because their current plan does not meet Obamacare criteria. Yet the president himself has stated repeatedly that if you like your doctor and current plan, you can keep them.
That, my friends, is a barefaced lie.
But that's not all. Multimillions are losing their jobs because their employers cannot afford to keep them and insure them according to Obamacare criteria. Many more millions are being forced to part time work (under 30 hours per week) so that their small business employer doesn't go bankrupt attempting to insure them according to the new rules.
The elitist Republican leadership wants to join a growing number of Democrats who are calling for a year-long delay in implementation, in order to work out the bugs.
Sorry, but that isn't good enough. This cancer is so deadly to the nation that it needs to be radically removed from the host (America) so that the host does not die.
