    Default the real cost of "obama care"???

    i don't know if this is typical or not but--

    my pal has been retired for the last decade --previously he had coverage of about 90% paid with a 10% out of pocket--

    october 1 this changed to 20% out of his pocket and a bunch of other things they paid for now are not included in the policy.

    his "new obama policy" now forces him to change his primary care Dr to one 120 miles away- this is not only a PITA but it also costs much more as big city drs charge much more than his local RFD dr does.

    we were trying to figure out how much it has went up with all the hidden little costs-- best we can tell about 40% or more in extra costs.

    and about this time he has had to go to the ICU for an infection and has had two trips to surgery-- so he is looking at big big $$$ out his pocket thanks to obama care--

    obama care came along just in time to really bite him on the kazoo--

    The rumor where I work is we are gonna have a pretty big increase in our premiums just so they can keep our insurance, My company is already paying a substantial part and cannot afford to pay more. All the while I see a lot of min wage folks getting their "free" insurance. They really believe it is free, and no one pays for it, since the gov gives it to them. I looked at one of their policies and their deductible is outrageously high.

    We had to do our insurance and benefit selections back in October, for 2014. Mine went up almost $75.00 a week for the same family plan. Plus some stuff that was covered isn't now.

    yea that what i am hearing about that "free" coverage-- lots of little got-ya!s in it --

    so that minimum wage coverage is just barely "covered" with some steep coverage "holes", and those that had coverage are going to pay more yet get way less--

    only ones getting 100% free coverage are illegal aliens-- go figure--

    They can kiss my ass, I won't sign up, give them any info at all or cooperate in any way shape or form,,period.

    It will all come tumbling down like a house of cards with-in 6 months if you ask me, so I don't really care. I got my medicare and VA benefits plus my only income is disability any how, so all this "hub bub" more than likely won't effect me one way or the other in the long run if I don't hand them my info,,,just to bad it will cost billions of tax payers money just to try to get this debockle off the ground ,, myself I don't think it will ever fly once all is said and done.

    Good part though,,,it's showing just how inept yomamma and his administration really are,,

    Good for them, hope they all end up in jail for fraud, that's right where they belong IMO.

    Screw -um! Just more of yomamma's poorly thought out,, feel good schemes IMO. What a moron,,,,,
