I want to share this.
I know why Obamacare was started and I get why those that can use it are happy. What people miss in their euphoria over “affordable healthcare” is that to make it affordable for “some” it became unaffordable for others.
My company, like several I know, are changing their plans and insurance carriers. New plans won’t allow you to cover your spouse if they have a job that offers healthcare. A guy I work with has to find a new plan because the new company p…lans changed his out of pocket payment for insulin from $30ish dollars to $600 for the insulin he needs and that’s monthly. This is a great example of how no one is really winning right now.
I know someone will say “well Obamacare isn’t perfect and needs work. It will grow.”
Ok, but at what cost? How long will America bleed the middle class to pay for what everyone should be helping with?
This is a touchy topic and I’ve had people call me heartless and blame me for wanting to take their healthcare away. That’s not my intention. My intention is to ask when did my own health and welfare become secondary to the nation’s agenda. When do we get an apology from Obama for lying to us and telling us our plans and rates won’t change? Before next year when our rates go UP again?
Before anyone drops a Trump comment on me know that I didn’t vote for Trump or Hillary. I’m ashamed those were our only two choices. I’m ashamed of America right now and the people in it on both sides and all sides.
There are always multiple sides to the story people.
