Skip to comments.Obama Pushes Bogus Claim About ACA: Your Premiums Cost Less Than Your Cell Phone Bill

Barack Obama is doing everything in his power to encourage average Americans to sign up for the Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as Obamacare. In fact, he's doing everything he possibly can to keep the legislation that has been deemed his legacy, from dying.
On Monday, Obama shared a video, reminding Americans to sign up in case they get "very sick" in 2019.
No jump shots. No ferns. No memes. Not this time. Im going to give it to you straight: If you need health insurance for 2019, the deadline to get covered is December 15. Go to https://t.co/ob1Ynoesod today and pass this on you just might save a life. pic.twitter.com/8mHMsXGY0g Barack Obama (@BarackObama) December 10, 2018
What's bogus is Obama makes the claim that most people can get health insurance for $50 to $100 a month, which he says is significantly less than a person's cell phone bill.
A couple years ago, when I had my own business, I had health insurance through the exchange. I was paying roughly $350/month for just myself. My deductible was significantly lower than some of the other plans that had lower premiums and higher deductibles. I don't see the doctor very much but when I do, I don't want a $300-$400 bill.
Out of curiosity, I checked how much it would be for me to get a plan on Obamacare. Right now. For a 26-year-old, who sees the doctor 3-4 times a year and takes 2-3 prescriptions, there was nothing under $270 in Idaho. How is that less than my cell phone bill? And how is that affordable when the deductibles are thousands and thousands of dollars? What incentive do people especially young adults my age have to enroll in Obamacare when they'd pay more health insurance than they'd spend out-of-pocket for the few times a year they see the doctor?
This is another fabricated lie, just like "if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor."
My wife and I have a cell phone bill of $175.00 per month (three business lines).
Our $500 deductible health plan costs us $300 per month (thank you Christian Healthshare (CHS)).
If it was not for CHS our monthly premiums would be $1,000 +/- $100 and our deductible would be $10,000.
What a POS this vile man is!
Is he a paid celebrity endorser?
Go away you fly drawing POS.
And of course the LSM gave him a pass on all his lies.
So this nitwit is really trying to tell me that my eyes are lying to me. LOL
Why is he still public and spouting and promoting “his” healthcare plan? He’s made for life. So what’s his malfunction?
26 years old and takes 2 to 3 prescriptions? Wow...
No ferns, not even any Fruit Loops in the bathtub this time.
Just down & dirty!
Did the Washington Post put Obama on the ‘Bottomless Pinocchio” list for this and more blatant lies?
Silly me, of course not.
Just an out of touch POS like that State of Ill. Transportation big wig telling people if he pays $150 a month for a cellphone and $50 for bottled water (he assumes all people do) therefore everyone can afford to pay more for the filling in of pot holes and should pony up for more in gas tax.
He desperately wants to be seen as relevant and having accomplished something in those eight long horrible years we all want to forget.
I have a friend who is self employed in Arizona, his premiums are around $2000.00 per month with a $10k deductible. This was the best he could do under Zero Care because his wife is a cancer survivor. Prior to Zero Care, he was at $500.00 per month with a $2k deductible.
Zero doesnt look like he is aging well.
The cost of my health insurance tripled.
however, your premiums purchase a very large deductable that in effect is no insurance.
Last time I checked an OshitCare plan for the two of us was about $3000/month. He's just a little off.
