Massive ObamaCare Rate Hikes Are A Good Thing, White House Says

This week Illinois' insurance regulator said ObamaCare premiums in the state will jump as high as 55%. The Obama administration's response to this and other news of massive rate hikes: Don't worry. Be happy.

Anyone shopping for ObamaCare coverage in Illinois this fall is in for a big shock. The average increase for cheap Bronze plans is likely 44%. It's 45% for the lowest-cost Silver plan, and 55% for the cheapest Gold plan.

These are the kinds of rate hikes individuals buying insurance will see across the country, as insurers who've suffered massive losses are getting huge double-digit premium increases approved by state regulators.

Fewer choices and higher costs are not what President Obama promised when he signed ObamaCare into law.

Image result for in your guts you know obama is nutsBut now, in the face of this market meltdown, the Obama administration put out a report this week that says, if anything, massive rate hikes are good for ObamaCare enrollees.

Most enrollees, they say, won't even notice the rate hikes, because the ObamaCare subsidies will cover most of the additional premium costs. In fact, the report says, the subsidies are designed in such a way that the bigger the premium increase the better.

According to the report, this year 76% of enrollees could buy an ObamaCare plan for $100 a month or less.

If premiums were to go up 10% next year, the report says, 77% would be able to buy coverage for $100 or less. But if they shot up 50%, then even more — 80% -- could buy a plan for $100 or less a month.

The reason for this upside-down result is that the subsidy is based on the cost of the second-cheapest Silver plan in any given area. The higher the cost for that, the bigger the potential subsidy.

But this analysis leaves out two important groups: the taxpayers who must pay vastly increased subsidy costs, and the millions of people who aren't eligible for any ObamaCare subsidies.

Since subsidy money doesn't grow on trees, those huge rate increases will mean that ObamaCare costs far more than expected, which means taxpayers will have to fork over still more money to cover the subsidies.

Ms. Dee,

 Soon very soon the docs will be exposed, Obama Care, was founded by London England, thats why it was ruled a Tax.

 Americans are being Taxed by England and now the UN is taking it over, so the UK voted to leave the EU Union, because they want to tax the Queen.

I mean really; does anyone really think that these were suppose to be jokes? He's flaunting it in our face.

All of this White House "low-premium, big-subsidy logic" is total BS if you have a $5000 "pay-first deductible".  Just ask anyone who has one.  

I don't know anyone who could afford to pay out a $5k to $6k deductible. insane/hussian has succeded in tearing down the USA into one big Detroit ghetto.  I have not seen anything positive out of the dc regime this past 7 and one half years.

         TO TOP IT OFF HOW IS THIS PRIVATE WHEN THOSE ALL AROUND THE WORLD HAVE ACCESS TO IT !!  YOUR RECORDS !!  THEY OWN AND THEY HAVE ACCESS ALSO !!!!! HOW LONG DOES IT GO TILL OTHERS AROUND THE WORLD DECIDE IF YOU GET MEDICAL ATTENTION OR NOT ??????    THEY LIED ALL THE WAY = OUR GOVT !!!!!!!!!  BUT WE KEEP PAYING = SUPREME COURT SAID !!!!!!!!!!!

Those subsidy dollars are OUR TAX DOLLARS. Bet many of you, as I am, are forgoing some of the specialists and tests that are recommended because of the costs. This is because we are paying for everybody elses insurance. 

         YES VERY TRUE !!   ILLEGALS AND WELFARE !!

Get rid of the affordable care act! Like the POS, it's a scam!

As I've said from the start, AFFORDABLE BY WHOM?!

this just totally sucks....Obama you Stink

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Talks To The Dead: – He Worked On Paris Climate Deal With Long-Dead Chinese Leader

Former Vice President Joe Biden mistakenly claimed on Monday that he worked on the Paris Climate Accord with former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping — who died more than 20 years before its signing.

Joe Biden claimed tonight that he worked with Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping on the Paris Climate Accord.

Except the current Chinese President is Xi Jinping.

Deng Xiapoing left office in 1992 and has been dead for 23 years.

Biden made the gaffe while citing his accomplishments in President Barack Obama’s administration.

“One of the things I’m proudest of is getting passed, getting moved, getting in control of the Paris Climate Accord,” Biden said in a speech at the College of Charleston. “I’m the guy who came back after meeting with Deng Xiaoping and making the case that I believe China will join if we put pressure on them. We got almost 200 nations to join.”

Xiaoping served as the leader of China from 1978 until his retirement in 1992, and passed away in 1997. Xi Jinping, China’s current president, came to power 2013 and signed the country onto the 2016 agreement.

In June 2017, President Trump announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the agreement, stating that accord will “undermine the economy” and “puts [the United States] at a permanent disadvantage.”

In addition to the Xiaoping gaffe, Biden bizarrely declared in a campaign speech that he is a “candidate for the United States Senate” and that people could “vote for the other Biden” if they prefer one of his rivals.

“My name is Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look me over, if you like what you see, help out. If not, vote for the other Biden,” the 77-year-old said at the First in the South Dinner.

Biden’s confusing comments come as Democrat primary candidates are scheduled to debate in Charleston Tuesday evening. The former vice president faces increasing pressure to give a standout performance as his “firewall” in the Palmetto State crumbles in the face of a surging Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). The Vermont senator is fresh off a decisive victory in Nevada caucuses on Saturday. Earlier this month, he placed first the New Hampshire primary and won the popular vote in Iowa. In a survey released Monday, the Public Policy Polling outfit said Biden leads South Carolina with 36 percent of support and Sanders is in second at 21 percent.
