    Hot Air ObamaCare could wipe out health insurance for 1 million low-income workers

    Unintended consequences or the deliberate screwing of America?

    When did you start caring about uninsured Americans?

    This is about insured Americans who were promised that they would not loose their insurance under Obamacare.

    Guess what? He lied.

    I care mani. I care about people who work and try to do the right thing. I happen to know people who have "catastrophic policies". They are willing to pay out of pocket if they get ick or break an arm. But they won't lose their house if they have a heart attack. Now they can.

    Where's the left screaming about the dying babies? Don't they care?

    So you don't have a problem with Obama care?
    Because that is who would be covered. ;)

    I have huge problems with Obamacare. It will do nothing to decrease premiums which is what America wanted. But that entire issue is moot. Its law. What about the million who will be uninsured for the next three years? What about the dying babies?

    If you don't mind, would you be able to point me to the Section in the law that specifically bans "mini-med" health plans? I have scanned it but can't find it.

    What's really upsetting is the fact our premiums have shot up without mercy and co-pays, the majority of which, used to be $10 each, went to $25 & $50 each for many.

    For two people we pay $1024/mo, $12,288/year for a health care plan that still demands another $2000-$3000 in co-pays throughout the year using a FLEX plan. And now, in 2011, this so called Health Care reform is going to LOWER the amount of FLEXPAY, pretax monies, for helping cover these additional costs, meaning another increase! WTF, and now we are supposed to afford to buy health care for others, hell, it's almost out of the reach for many of us now!

    So far this health care reform has cost us and millions of others unmerciful increases in our monthly premiums etc. There are other rumors which peaked my attention to this thread which makes my stomach turn concerning our plan, but will wait until we hear more in a month or so.

    Now our local Walgreens will NOT be taking Medicare part "D" from CVS Caremark, who we have, as of Jan. 1, 2011. This kind of 'fine tuning' by the insurance companies etc, is only the beginning.

    The "Fun" is just beginning with Obamacare, the Obama Health Care Hammer is falling, when it finally reaches the point of contact, then all those who supported this plan that was put together almost overnight like a schoolkid who delayed their assignment until the last minute, then put together a lot of 'Mish Mosh' jumbled with confusing legal paragraphs of rules and regs that can be interpreted many ways resulting in the subscribers being the big losers and you know who as the big winners.
