Liberals are waking up to Obamacare – and “Shared Responsibility”
There is an old joke: Who is the most conservative person? A: A liberal who has been mugged. Liberal are waking up to realize they have been mugged – by Obamacare
This is funny. I mean really funny. These unwashed supporters of occupy movements, with a room full of fading Obama posters are waking up to the reality that is Obamacare. There is no such thing as free healthcare. You can’t tax the 1% enough (not from a lack of trying mind you) to pay for the liberal agenda. At some point, the…Shared Responsibility Payment…comes due.
For those of you that haven’t seen it yet, the Obamacare penalty, which is really a tax, is being called a Shared Responsibility Payment. How Marxist.
Anyway, these people really believed someone else would be paying the Obamacare bill. This is hysterical. How easy is it for you to vote to give away something that isn’t yours. Apparently pretty easy. Problem, it was yours. Damn those shared responsibilities.
Obamacare is not about providing healthcare to the country. It is specifically designed to take advantage of healthy, middle aged, middle class Americans. It is designed to increase dependence on the Government and consolidate power in Washington. Any delusions of this fulfilling a moral obligation to provide healthcare are exactly that – delusions.
My wife and I just got our updates from Kaiser telling us what our 2014 rates will be. Her monthly has been $168 this year, mine $150. We have a high deductible. We are generally healthy people who don’t go to the doctor often. I barely ever go. The insurance is in case of a major catastrophe.
Well, now, because of Obamacare, my wife’s rate is gong to $302 per month and mine is jumping to $284.
I am canceling insurance for us and I am not paying any fucking penalty. What the hell kind of reform is this?
Oh, ok, if we qualify, we can get some government assistance. Great. So now I have to jump through another hoop to just chisel some of this off. And we don’t qualify, anyway, so what’s the point?
“I was laughing at Boehner — until the mail came today,” Waschura said, referring to House Speaker John Boehner, who is leading the Republican charge to defund Obamacare.
“I really don’t like the Republican tactics, but at least now I can understand why they are so pissed about this. When you take $10,000 out of my family’s pocket each year, that’s otherwise disposable income or retirement savings that will not be going into our local economy.”
Both Vinson and Waschura have adjusted gross incomes greater than four times the federal poverty level — the cutoff for a tax credit. And while both said they anticipated their rates would go up, they didn’t realize they would rise so much.
“Of course, I want people to have health care,” Vinson said. “I just didn’t realize I would be the one who was going to pay for it personally.”
