Before Obamacare got shoved down everyone's throats, I was doing fine finacially, even with two pre-existing conditions.
Since Obamacare, my premiums have tripled and my deductible has quadrupled. The extra amount alone could have financed a second house.
It is no coincidence that substance abuse and all the costs associated with it have gone through the roof ever since ObaMaoCare was enacted to subsidize said lifestyle.
I think the deductible side of this discussion will be the final stumbling block. Might take five to seven years, but I think the average guy will just say that he can’t cover the yearly deductible anymore, without it bringing him or his family into serious financial issues. At that point, single-payer Medicare-like insurance will be the only solution left. Marginalized care will have arrived and people will wonder how we stumbled into this pit.
