Posted on 09/22/2013 9:54:21 PM PDT by Nachum
When U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner (R-Col.) got the word that he could opt out of Obamacare or keep his current health-care plan which you might be surprised to learn is a private plan he took a road some might say is less traveled and then hit a big pileup:
He breaks it down a bit more:
Instead of heading down a woe-is-me path, Gardner harnessed his unfortunate news to get a conversation going about whats happening to peoples health-care plans in the wake of

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Thanks to 0Care your Gold plan has just become an Aluminum plan - at a 100% premium increase.
That's what it says in the online Obamacare e-chart.
Maybe someone smart like Joe Biden can explain what happened?
It’s a big effin deal.
Explaining stuff is slick willies job
I hope many O voters get these as well and I do hope they make over the amount where a subsidy will not be forthcoming. I want them to feel to O care hammer just like I will F them all!
bait and switch on steroids
I agree but the true believers still think it’s great.
The day after the 2014 elections, Traybama will send McCain on TV to announce “Single Payer” healthcare is replacing Obamacare.
Obamacare ‘collapsed’ a bit ahead of schedule, so they must tap dance for another 6 months until election season kicks in.
Till then, I’m sure George Midgetopoulos can keep the plates spinning.
Wait til they see that their wonderful policies will no longer be available (after Dec 31, 2013) and they're being forced into *Marketplace Exchanges!*, or their Medicare becomes Medicaid.
See how *great* they all think it is, then.
His plan is going from $650 to $1480.
Don’t expect any rebuts from the ones that stand in long lines to buy electronics and sporting event tickets.
“I hope many O voters get these as well and I do hope they make over the amount where a subsidy will not be forthcoming. I want them to feel to O care hammer just like I will F them all!”
there are two kinds of Obama voters. the first kind doesn’t work... welfare, disability, endless unemployment. they will get it free, period
the second type who work, will feel it. here’s the problem. they are more than happy to sacrifice because its their part in the transforming of America.
And the liberal talking heads are trying really hard to ignore the elephant turd in the bathtub.
>> His plan is going from $650 to $1480.
$1480 for family is the current market cost give or take $250 when not part of a large group.
Health insurance will be the equivalent of a mortgage payment, and the vote for Obama will prove to be a painful lesson for many.
Well, it was Hillarycare before it was Romneycare before it was Obamacare...
Unless they lie about their income, as, no doubt, the "navigators" will counsel them. The computers aren't in place. The gubmint can't check. But executive orders are orders. Implementation must continue.
heres the problem. they are more than happy to sacrifice because its their part in the transforming of America.
Nah. They're not true believers (and that's our only hope). They're just low-information pukes who watch the news once in a while, if at all.
Going to a class Monday.
Did a little training online, but putting this off to the last minute. It is a small part of my business that I only need every now and then, since spouses going on Medicare are not always both over 65 and sometimes they can't keep group plan into retirement.
(COBRA does not protect against Part B Penalties, btw)
Anyway, guess what? All of the “agent” and “marketplace” training is being done from a CMS, Medicare and Medicaid Services website!
Just curious. How’s business...since 0Care?
So are you saying all plans are medicare or medicaide?
Actually, the 65 and older crowd is working longer than ever before. I used to chase after those who were getting ready to retire, I would go after the Medicare Supplement business, etc., in order to have a shot at the IRA Rollover business.
We call this the “aging in” business.
However? Those who HAVE jobs are working as long as they can, so chasing after those turning 65 is not always as productive as it used to be.
But I am keeping VERY busy with everyone else.
There is NO Constitutional authority for the program, and as such, it should be scrapped.
Roberts will go down in history as vile as Benedict Arnold, imho.
So if the States did not set up an exchange the people in said state will go to the made up ones by Sebillius and obama which is Medicare or Medicaide?
Seems like it is a made up program to me and I am wondering if these people will really get insurance or if it will just be government stuff.
Yes I hope the next person who is hearing voices will be hearing Mr. Roberts name.
This could be nipped in the bud by requiring “navigators” to have insurance licenses, as they ARE selling insurance.
- B. Hussein Obama Junior has “droned” healthcare plan of U.S. Representative Cory Gardner’s (R-CO) and his family.....
- “Inadvertently” IRS & NSA has “doubled” his healthcare premiums I guess -
My medigap plan has increased in cost across the board. Even though (supposedly) there still is no monthly fee, coverage for every aspect has decreased while co-pays have increased. Plus, coverage has been disallowed in several counties in my state, as well as in several states in this country. IOW, if I get sick while traveling, I may not have insurance. No word on what it is doing to my doctors.
BTW, it also looks like I have NO out of netwrk coverage, and no list of in-network physicians was included in the list of changes. I have to ask for that separately.
Lets start that conversation by acknowledging we arent going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants... bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society. Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors. [but hes not in favor of amnesty, snicker, definition of is is]
...by softening its edge on some volatile social issues and altering its image as the party always seemingly "eager to go to war... We do need to expand the party and grow the party and that does mean that we don't always all agree on every issue" ... the party needs to become more welcoming to individuals who disagree with basic Republican doctrine on emotional social issues such as gay marriage... "We're going to have to be a little hands off on some of these issues ... and get people into the party," Paul said.
It’s all socialized medicine.
When are people going to understand there is no healthcare in Obamacare. It’s nothing but a scam to grab your freedom. Wonder what’s in the additional 11000 pages added to the original 2700 pages in Obamacare?
Especially if you have health issues. My eldest is type 2 diabetic...no ins. only a part time job NO AMERICAN WILL WORK!, And no one wants to hire him because of it for a better job. He has 20+ years in management and supervisory jobs. DIL just had a Mascetomy, with chemo to follow Stage 3 as she is both hormone and HER2 positive. Her’s was the full time job. CNA, now she will not be able to work for at least a year, as it exposes her to to many sick people. SS has already turned her down, so has food stamps. Yet the illegal INVADERS are getting it with no hassle. Ind spends $130 M per year on Medicaid for ILLEGALS!
Any one who still trust McLIAR is insane, he is now trying to gut the Military’s health care!
I have to keep up with both medicare and Tricare Life as we are over 65 retired Military. Hubby worked his tail off under paid, over deployed for 20 years on the promise of health care when he was old. Now they are gutting even that. Our co-pays have double twice in the past 2 years, and now they are grabbing OTC drugs from the shelf and charging that price instead of the original TFL co pay price.
Look for more drugs to go OTC so ins companies won’t have to pay for them.
Doc tried to stick me on Forteo, it is an 18 month program of daily shots with a diabetic like pen. Med co-pay was $17, needles $30, over $800 out of pocket expenses, for a drug that is side effect riddled, regrows up to 9% BONE, BUT REVERSES once you stop the drug at 18 months a net gain of ZERO with $800+ dollars spent uselessly. When you ask about vitamin and mineral treatment you are met with HUH what is that look. They don’t even know what makes bones grow! And what you find in the net does not give you the dosages just what the vits and mins are.
Some of the senators should get together and hold contests where they give away their health benefit offset check to a needy citizen. This would really get it into the news and embarrass the rest of the gov’t elite.
I hope someone informs the Senate. Maybe the GOP-e will get a clue.
I will be staying eligible for my work insurance and I guess my spouses coverage in my group plan but when I retire next year I guess I will have to buy my wife an expensive individual plan for two years until she reaches 65.
I expect it will be like a Lexus payment.
I love it.
God bless him. And may the news of this and the consequences he has suffered, as well as that for for all of us be spread abroad.
I am so afraid of the new plan. Is there a thread or series of threads about dealing with it in our personal lives?
Oh I hope so. I hope it is a painful lesson but I’m so jaded I think the obamabots will spin it to convince the sheeple all is well and they will be too stupid to know the difference. The takers will never know the difference. Never. Their way is paid. Their coast is clear.
Yes, it is a mortgage payment.
I just hope it is more painful for most than it is for me. This and the intentional destruction of the United States with malice has had my attention for a long time now. It is time many more were as afraid as I have been for a long time.
With malice indeed.
