My math (or hearing) must be off.I thought I heard “$2,500 a year savings”.
They won’t care other people will pay for it.
My health insurance premiums went up 400% this year in Colorado. 0bamacare sucks and so do those who imposed this on us.
Congress doesn’t care about US citizens and their plight. Their priority is a bunch of illegal aliens and pleasing them.
Good. Virginia seems to have flipped blue for good. Give it to them good and hard
Repealing 0care was supposed to happen several months ago.
Keeping this monstrosity is what’s going to kill the middle class. it was designed that way, incidentally.
So they’re meeting at Camp David to plan an agenda, eh? REPEAL the ACA. That’s it.
Election day is approaching people. Get with it!
Who cares? They vote for Democrats every time they get the chance. They fought for Obamacare, so they must love paying a fortune for it.
My recollection is:
that the subsidies were authorized but they required specific funding by Congress,
and Congress ended the funding;
then Obama tried to work around that, possibly illegally,
but Trump refused to do that and reminded Congress they had to act if they wanted to fund the subsidies,
and Congress did not and is not funding them.
What can be a relationship between the subsidies and recent big premium increases? MANDATES.
The kinds of plans that must be offered on the ACA exchanges and the MANDATES in the plans INSURES that the insurers are taking on greater risks. How much greater risk was masked by the subsidies.
Congress next ACA act must be to dispense with the MANDATES, making it possible for insurers to offer a very wide range of plans that can meet the financial limits folks can afford to devote to “health insurance”. My only hope with that reform is that it also mandate that health savings accounts (HSA)must be one of the options that must be offered with any plan. The more things folks can pay from HSAs the more they will start to affect cost reductions by providers.
