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 Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
