Posted on 03/21/2013 7:24:08 AM PDT by TurboZamboni
An exhaustive study by three congressional committees delivers startling news about the dire effects of Obamacare: President Barack Obamas signature legislation could increase health insurance premiums by over 200 percent and render insurance coverage unaffordable for millions of Americans.
Broadly, the new report declares that Obamacare breaks its core promise to make healthcare coverage affordable.
The report, The Price of Obamacares Broken Promises, was prepared by the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, Majority Staff; Senate Committee on Finance, Minority Staff; and Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, Minority Staff.
Studies and analyses from the Congressional Budget Office, independent actuaries, state insurance commissioners, health plans, benefit consultants, and others have reached the same conclusion: Obamacare will significantly increase premiums, the congressional report states.
Some estimates show some Americans facing startling premium increases of 203 percent because of the law.

A grieving daughter has lodged a complaint against a hospital which left her father to die on a 'barbaric' end of life pathway for eight days without her permission.
Susan Phillips said her 69-year-old father Robert Goold was left to slowly deteriorate for more than a week on the controversial Liverpool Care Pathway.
The pensioner, who had dementia, got weaker and weaker as doctors took food, water and oxygen away from him but survived longer than they expected.
Addenbrooke's Hospital...yeah...they did the same to my dad...only he wasn't suffering from dementia...at least they gave him a morhene drip that he could work
Ours went from $668/mon to $1439 over a similar time period, all due to extra stuff Omaba care made them add to our high dectucible policy ($10,000 deductible).
That's $17, 268 dollars a year !! I can't really afford it anymore, though now I get to have pregnancy coverage ( past the age, I'm afraid), early drug/alcohol intervention treatment (mr rb and I neither drink, nor smoke), and a whole host of other coverages we neither want, nor can afford.
We have been served.
Thank you, Chief Justice Roberts. Your infamous ruling will bankrupt the USA and put rioters in the streets to protest this outrageous government takeover of the lives and fortunes of its citizens.
Was Roberts blackmailed?
When it comes time to hand out justice, remember who voted for this: ALL DIMocRATs. No Republican did (although some RINOs did help get it to a vote in committee).
Hmm, they will claim isolated incident.
Anything Democrats say, it really means the opposite.
Affordable health care isn’t.
On top of that, coverage is 80/20 on medicine, so we're paying an additional $700/mo. for necessary meds.
Our grand total is over $20k/year.
If I was an illegal alien it would all be free.
But I can't complain. At least Zero hasn't had to cut back on his vacations.
It's the greedy insurance companies, of course.
I guess they've just become exceptionally greedy lately.
I'm just grateful that Obama, with his business experience scooping ice cream for Baskin Robbins, will know what to do.
“The first lesson of economics is scarcity: there is never enough of anything to fully satisfy all those who want it.The first lesson of politics is to disregard the first lesson of economics”-Thomas Sowell
And therein might be your solution if you can throw away all your values and upbringing - go to the emergency room, give an ID that you purchased on the street corner and a transient address - get free health care.
People will be beggin for Single Payer just like the Israelites begged Moses to return them to slavery under Pharaoh.
My hope in posting is that some DUmmie might stumble across this, and be provoked by this anecdote. Heaven knows, logic doesn’t work.
I’m shocked, shocked I tell you!/s
Boehner is f-n worthless.
What else to expect from the islamic white house.
What happened to that 3,000% decrease in premiums that was going to result in folks getting a raise? (yes this is sarcasm).
“All part of the plan to have the feral government own everything and the peasants rent everything from them.”
I wonder how many people realize this Bury the middle class, exterminate jobs, lose homes. Turn these homes into Section 8 all over the US especially those that are ethnically or culturally challenged.
