Skip to comments.AP: Get Ready, Suckers… You’re Going to Lose Your Health Insurance
Posted on 05/29/2013 4:33:51 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
After several years of spinning for the Democrats and Barack Obama the liberal media has decided to come clean and tell you what you can expect from Obamacare. And yourre not going to like it. Many Americans are going to lose their plans after all.
Of course, Barack Obama repeatedly promised this would not happen.
And the media let him get away with these lies until now.
The AP reported:
State insurance regulators say many people who buy their own health insurance could get surprises this fall: cancellation notices because their policies arent up to the basic standards of President Barack Obamas overhaul.
These people, and some small businesses, will have to find replacement plans _ and that has some state officials worried about consumer confusion.....

Note that Barack Obama, his family, Federal employees, and Congress are all EXEMPT from having to use this coverage.
And unions, Muslims and all our “newly” legal immigrants, I’m sure.
well ya gotta die from something, right? /sarc
It’s wht happens when you pass something before you know what’s in it. Every dang member of congress, and every dang judge who allowed this pile of crap needs to be removed from office.
Right now, way I figger’ there is only one way left to do that, so sayeth Mr. Jefferson!
Of course the GOP could have defunded this in 2010. They do have the constitutional power. Instead they made excuses why they could not and let it build and build getting worse by the day. Now the cure will result in many companies being destroyed because literally BILLIONS have been spent by insurers having to restructure their models to comply with Obamacare. And that further means many people will get financially wiped out in the aftermath.
That’s a fact many people just can’t seem to admit.
And the 16000 gun toting IRS agents will be right there to make sure its all “Legal”! Obama’s Army.
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
We have excellent coverage now, health, dental, vision . . .IF we lose it . . . I will pay the fine. IF we get sick I will go buy insurance. They can’t refuse you for a pre-existing condition. IF I stay well, I will bank a lot of cash otherwise spent on premiums. Win. Win.
The surprise will be there will be no insurance.
I dropped my $8K per year plan many years ago (I think it was more now anyway)
I paid cash for all medical/dental bills including a broken arm hospitalization for my daughter, and caps for her teeth and several fillings and glasses, and I am still way more than 20K ahead of the game.
Ask the guys who fired “The shot heard ‘round the world”.
Note the timing - the weekday after a holiday weekend, the coverage drops expertly timed to come over a year before the next congressional election in hope that you dumbmasses will forget all about this by November 2014.
Timed so that a) most people won’t see this story and b) most who get stunned by a loss of coverage will have found new coverage by the time of the election and moved on.
That is what I’m figuring. Family of four coverage, bank the savings IF we lose it from employer, save the premiums, less the fine and in five short years we’d be 50K to the good, ten years 100K and so on. Not counting perhaps gains on investment of said savings . . . we’re going on 20% earnings this year so far . . . not to say we’ll end the year @ 20%. The libs get really mad when you tell them you won’t cooperate and play their little utopia game and you’ll pay the fine instead . . . which is what they get with an affirmative action pretender and his gang of Pelosi and Dirty Harry.
No surprise. Fact.
The spousal unit and I have long term health care premiums. Our carrier, who has been in the insurance biz for eons, notified us they are leaving the health care business. With out saying directly so, they did cite enough reasons to say "ObumaCare". Our premium was "sold".
It's still unclear if the new carrier's service will be as good or not.
>> Note that Barack Obama, his family, Federal employees, and Congress are all EXEMPT from having to use this coverage.
That is so wrong.
Almost makes one feel like building a guillotine, doesn’t it?
does anyone have a specific example of someone
having their insurance canceled for
the reasons discussed here?
For my dental, I don't have insurance. Between the deductibles insured people pay, the discount I get for cash payment, and me deciding what level of care to get, I can't see how dental insurance is a bargain.
Speaking of-anyone who uses generics made by Ranbaxy in India might want to check this out-
2 of my dads doctors bailed this week.
Liberals will describe this news as “unexpected”.
You don’t win elections by cleaning up the mess too soon. A gullible public must be burned twice to not trust the match a third time.
Right you are! No, I mean really right! The quote is so wrong, in fact, it's incorrect. Congress is not exempt from Obastardcare.
And thanks to their party over principle theatrics, they won’t win the next one either. Sure, they will run an ever more liberal GOP wonderboy like Christie or Rubio...then wonder why they lost.
Except for the fact that they don’t want to win to begin with. One bird, two wings.
How many dads do you have?
Rates will shoot higher, faster, as more and more "qwackertoos" drop out to avoid paying now-outrageous prices, banking their "savings" and hoping that enough other idiots will actually buy insurance that don't need it right at that moment so there will be something left when the "smart ones" decide to tap into it.
Glad it's only you that would drop out of the risk pool. Meanwhile, my employer and I will keep buying insurance so it still exists when you need it. Regards.
“How many dads do you have?”
2. My dad and step dad. Why do you ask?
We’re not the first, nor the last society to allow a pied piper to come in and lead the masses to the toilet...
I’m just a screaming spectator evidently.
>> “(i) REQUIREMENT.Notwithstanding any other provision of law, after the effective date of this subtitle, the only health plans that the Federal Government may make available to Members of Congress and congressional staff with respect to their service as a Member of Congress or congressional staff shall be health plans that are
(I) created under this Act (or an amendment made by this Act); or
(II) offered through an Exchange established under this Act (or an amendment made by this Act).” <<
You are not reading that correctly.
The phrase “Notwithstanding any other provision of law” means that Obamacare will not withstand “any other provision of law.”
This is going to be a circus.
I just figure the congresscritters will be insured by a pretty nice package no matter what is proclaimed.
What do you do about the half million bucks your intensive care visit rings up before you can get the Obamacare to go into effect (it would never be before the beginning of the following month).
>> I just figure the congresscritters will be insured by a pretty nice package no matter what is proclaimed.
Take my word for it. Before we had our series of "emergencies" we thought we were in pretty good shape. 5 hospital visits for miscellaneous emergencies later and I had a change of perspective.
Want to hear the miracle of it all? I had decided to pay a little more for 100% coverage. It was expensive but I just didn't want to take a chance on exposure. Heck, I even prayed on it.
The second day coverage went active. I got creamed in a rear-ender that totaled my car. A year in therapy. It was the first of a series of hospital required incidents.
I thank GOD every day for motivating me to bump up that premium.
Next year, I'm pretty sure all that will go away. Businesses are going into "Duck and Cover" mode until Obama's gone, and "run and hide" mode if another socialist gets elected.
Is the AP and all the other obama media exempt?
Wonder if anyone at the AP have figured out that they have been used and are about to get punked like the rest of us.
True enough. For now . . . we have excellent health insurance. I really hope that doesn’t change but have my doubts & worries. Yep, got rear ended 3 years ago, the day before we were leaving on vacation . . . the next day while touring, I fell and fractured my ankle, bi-mal . . . I still wonder IF that was partially due to the accident the day before as it was my foot that was on the brake pedal at the red light when hit from behind. We only sought repair damages for our vehicle, an Expedition, the other car was probably almost totaled due to the engine compartment buckling up like an aluminum can.
The DNC ParceMasters have excused this by indicating that Obama said that the government would not REQUIRE you to change your plan or doctor...
(.....it’s just that they won’t be available to you anymore).
