Judy Naillon called her insurer several months ago to find out why she was being charged $35 every month for birth control pills. Her friends said they were getting their pills free under the federal health law.
Why wasn't she getting the same deal?
The insurance representative explained that was because the plan Naillon and her husband had through his job was "grandfathered" under the health law. In other words, unlike other health plans, Naillon's insurance policy, which existed before the health law was enacted, doesn't have to cover many preventive services, including contraception.
Naillon would have to continue to pay a share of the cost of her pills, the insurer told her.

republicrats have now voted 4 times in each house to fund this communism-— OBAMACARE!! . I DON”T WANT TO PAY FOR ANY ONE ELSES INSURANCE!! TO HELL with that. I want them to buy their own damed insurance or ROT!! I am sick of this crap.It is my money— MINE and I want them to quit stealing it at GUN POINT!!
Every single person who voted for obozo either time should suffer, and suffer badly. Those who voted for him both times should suffer twice as much.
May they suffer daily and excruciatingly.
We have an individual grandfathered plan. Which has basically saved us financially. I wonder when the fascists will find a way to take it away from us.
But, it’s also a bummer, I’m not getting free abortions, birth control, sex change operations. OTOH, I’m not paying for someone else getting them.
We’re old enough to have had health insurance where maternity care was a extra cost OPTION that we could turn down if we wanted to do so.
I'm thinking hemorrhoids and festering boils on the buttocks would be appropriate...........as a starter.
The woman, who is a teacher, doesn’t even want to pay for her own birth control but wants other people to pay for it. I wonder if her employer has health care or if she can sign up for ObamaCare? It seems she wants her husband’s private insurance plan to change to suite her.
>>I’m thinking hemorrhoids and festering boils on the buttocks would be appropriate<<
May they all be married to my ex-wife (possible in today’s what does it matter world).
A worse punishment could not be meted.
As planned. They want to kill all grandfathered plans and move everyone to the new failed plans.
God Bless you Cajun and God Bless America. We must stand up and get very very loud!! We are LEGION!!
Do you ever wonder how you married her in the first place?
A black guy called Hannity this afternoon and told Hannity that Sean was right and he was horribly wrong about Obamacare. This guy just got his new insurance plan that has a %5,000 deductible before any insurance payment begins, and then it is he pays 20% and insurance pays 80%. in addition to a $250 co-pay.
My BCBS-GA grandfathered plan will be canceled in December. Just received the letter a couple of weeks ago.
Been here a coupla weeks and already ranting like an old FReeper!
Ditto in Iowa. Got my letter this week.
once the ass is out of office, the next president can just disregard the laws he doesn’t like... such as each and every 0bamacare ‘law’
if anyone complains about having to ‘follow the law’... just point to the current _resident’s record on following the laws governing the borders for invaders
(With that latest 30%, that's about 50% total increase since Obamacare went into effect two years ago and about 170% since the law passed six years ago.)

Strong drink, low morals, and
Do you also get angry about paying for highways and bridges in Alaska or some other state you never visit? Just wondering.
